ozturert: Hilarious to read comments here.
Canikon lens 95% of DSLR market, and Canon already is ahead of Sony in Japan in mirrorless market.
And still "Canon is this, Canon is that"...
DxOMark-headed and spec-sheet-headed forum birds :)
By the way I'm happy with my EM1 II.

In sales, the way that matters. I think they sell @ #2 behind olympus in the Japanese market

Adam Sharp: Really ... Nikon flash units are the best possibly Canon should learn from Nikon .

That's not really because Nikon's flash guns are better, it's because Nikons TTL math is better.

Astrotripper: I wonder if we'll see reports of mounts cracking and breaking off at the camera side :-)

it you were swinging a 1dxII with a 400/2.8 attached around by the body without supporting the lens i'm pretty sure you'd break something on that too. it's an 8.5lb lens, give me a break. it's not meant to be carried by the camera

RED i: Wish they just made it cross platform or so you can flash your own for the system you use.

Correct - even the stuff that is sold with an on camera mount (such as AD360IIC) can do cross brand wirelessly. Which is handy if you own more than one brand body-wise, or want to shoot with a partner/friend who does.

TTL pin layouts are not the same from system to system, so anything that attaches to the camera (triggers, on camera flashes) can't be multi system :( The stuff that doesn't attach directly can work with triggers specific for multiple brands though

In reply to:

panther fan: "highest possible USB specifications"
"meaning they are not suitable for powering USB-C devices"

So they don't have the highest USB standard, and are not capable of the thunderbolt standard.
So what's so special about these cables, that you don't get with a regular USB-C cable?

they cost as much as a thunderbolt cable while not being as good as a thunderbolt cable?

beckmarc: I just hope they don’t let all of these backers down with an inferior or even no product. Cynicism aside, it shows a potential way forward for camera manufacturers to compete against smart phones at least stylistically.

when you back a project on kickstarter or any one of those sites, you're not buying anything. You're funding it for a vaguely worded promise that if it actually makes it to market you will get one for the money you donated towards R&D.

Sometimes these products come out and they are the cats meow. Sometimes they are huge disappointments. Sometimes the company crawls back for more money saying they won't ship you anything unless you pony up some more. Sometimes your money just disappears entirely.

Crowdfunding is the new way for creatives to get funding without having to actually deliver anything back to your investors.

thoth22: It's interesting that faa mentions aerosols as that is what is used for chem spraying, you know, to make the fake clouds. There are 176 patents for aerosol spraying from jets (www.geoengineeringwatch.org). Maybe too many people were catching photos of the spraying from the plane. Governments and their bureaucratic agencies like to lie to the public, like when they banned freon because bad for ozone when in reality dupont's patent was terminating and the cost of it would have substantially dropped. Instead they patent a new freon and continue charging absurd prices for it. Anyway, I find the FAA's reasoning to be a big pile of poo and not the truth of why they want cameras banned and the sheep will buy it.

Josh Leavitt: I bought the Flashpoint R2 Pro-C from Adorama a few weeks ago - naturally, it's on backorder :( I hope the Nikon version can escape the supply shortages.

It hasn't been released yet, still on pre-order

cdembrey: I'd like to see a Canon version of a Ricoh GRD. A small digicam with fixed fast 28mm lens. To make me part with my money Canon needs something that will fit in the pockets of my cargo-shorts, that doesn't have a slooow zoom lens. Something that Daido Moriama would fell at home using https://duckduckgo.com/?q=daido+moriyama+photographer&atb=v76-5&iax=images&ia=images

An apsc rx1? You mean the Fuji x100 series?

(unknown member): I don't see the point of this Google Pixel? It doesn't even have a Leica lens like the other HuaWei phone camera featured on here. Also the iPhone 8 Plus I own is superior to anything Google makes especially with the new Android OS 11 they have now. Perhaps if Google used Android OS 11 they too would be decent.

leica plastic lenses are way better than other plastic lenses

The Squire: Maybe Canon can't?

Id normal accuse Canon of protecting their pro-level cinema cameras by not including 4k in a mid-range EOS D body.

But this doesnt apply to a fixed-lens compact. If this camera included 4K, no one is able to attach Canon glass to it.

So maybe Canon just can't do reliable 4k on their APSC sensors? They struggle with clean 1080p...

I can think of no other reason they wouldnt include 4K on this camera.

They seem to shy away from using off the shelf parts and to have a corporate pride in designing their own, so I assume that's why they haven't purchased DSP's elsewhere. They are plentiful as you note.

PhotoUniverse: "Subject tracking not quite up to D5 standards"

That's not a fair point.
Then, you should add that CON to every other camera!

"Richard Butler
Nikon said to us that we should expect D5 level performance."

^^^^^^^^^

That sounds like us Canon users always going "but if you use one point it's amazing, you should really just use one point don't use those other cool modes they give you access to" (albeit, Group is a bit better than one point :) )

The whole reason reviews exist is to separate the wheat from chaffe of what marketing materials say. Otherwise you'd buy based on press releases.

I think it's totally fair for them to say 'the reality of this camera is not quite what Nikon would have you believe'

why do you list off all these other reasons, when the fact that Canon does not currently manufacture or use in any production camera, a 4K capable DSP that can be passively cooled is right there in front of you? There's no need to go looking in the weeds for other reasons.

"Nikon said it has the same AF module as the D5. Nowhere do they say it is as good as the D5. It has a different shutter, blackout time."

I didn't say the marketing was a flat out lie, I said it was "misleading" - expecting everyone to know those details is misleading. They knew exactly what they were doing, just like these companies know when they put stupid ISO's just so they can have a huge number on the box even though nobody will ever use it.

"Forget the marketing. Saying AF is a con because it doesn't match a camera that costs twice as much and has half the resolution is not really fair."

The fact that they use it in marketing makes it fair. The marketing folks are trying to trick people, and it's completely fair for camera reviewers to drag that back into line. Reviews are here to put paid to marketing BS and tell you the real scoop.

Nikon's marketing department doesn't advertise all the other cameras as having the same AF system as the D5. It's a valid ding when they do misleading handwaving like that.

While I believe a lot of 3rd party sites have noted the 5dIV as having the same af module as the 1dXII, I do not believe Canon made any such claims in their marketing material. If they did (would be happy to admit I'm wrong) , they should be dinged for the same thing
