Samuel Lucifer: "Did Apple's iPhone 13 ‘Cinematic Mode’ just revolutionize mobile cinematography?"

Nah to me it looked very artificial.
But I do see it as a nice gadget even though 99.98 percent of the iPhone users won't use the feature.

It's about being able to focus wherever you want after the shot. Not sure of what's "artificial" but surely focus pulling from foreground to background and viceversa doesn't exist outside humanity :)

jazja: 6100 EUR.
Then the price for R1 will be 10,000 EUR.

9000 would make sense, but 10000? Nah.

Just Another Tog: The turf war between Canon and Sony fan boys is hilarious as an outsider... like reading comments from Primary School children arguing over who has the bigger Dad.

@OnePointTwo with the difference that here they're arguing about products they'll never own, and aren't meant for fanboys either.

WMcCann: Find it funny, was only a few years back that the non-Sony community was saying that Mirrorless made no sense, that EVFs were essentially a toy/gimmick yet now Canon have made a high end $6k camera without a mirror!!!

What seems to have got lost is that the advantage of mirrorless was supposed to be smaller size (I even considered moving as it would mean smaller light kit for travelling) but this is no longer the case - the cameras seem to be nearly the same size as the standard SLR - guess the old adage must ring true - size matters!!!

It's visibly smaller and lighter than 1DX. And I can't see any reason why the future mirrorless flagship should be any bigger than R3. Same goes for all other canon mirrorless if compared to their dslr counterparts. Anyway the advantages of mirrorless nowadays go beyond the size (AF anyone)?

Discombobulated: The new MBP only cost you 1 eye ball and 1 liver.

How come the current M1 MBP doesn't?

marc petzold: Having that RAM on-chip, SoC, is a bad idea into terms of reliability.
Proof: I've seen enough RAM bars, which showed bit-errors with Memtest 86+, over the decades. If you'd have that on your M1(x) - fine, you can kiss the whole Mainboard good-bye, it's useless, and needs being replaced, which is into Apple terms very costly.

During the past 30+ years, Apple Computers became less & less User-upgradeable, it's their politics.

Good Light.

@Gesture Devices with cpu, gpu and ram. Call them computer or phones, it doesn't matter. Both happen to regularly use a lot of their hardware resources at the same time.

vijayparikh: Inclusion of the SD card is great - but isn't CF Express the new standard? My Nikon Z6 only has CFExpress slot and while the new cameras do have a single SD card slot, it is relegated to backup duties (and. that also if you are not going to be doing high frame rates).

I just don't know how helpful SD slot for cards is going to helpful moving forward.

Magsafe and HDMI returning - that would be great. I don't really get why apple removed those two ?

I don't think so. I don't have numbers at hand but it looks like the big majority of cameras (either in catalogue or not but still used) uses SD cards only, or in any case it's the most used format in current market and the very expensive CF Express format won't surpass it any time soon.

I would like to see a proper review of the battery, down to 1000mAh capacity from 2450 of OM4. It's claimed 6.4 hours duration vs 14.5. That seems quite a sacrifice taken in the name of pocketability, the handle is smaller and it contains the telescopic extender.

dr8: The video shows device being used in "landscape" orientation. Even the party-goer selfies - how can 99.9% of cell phone users possibly make sense of this product?

By simply pressing a button and make it rotate to portrait mode...

MinAZ: Can't quite keep track but since DPR is posting, I am assuming DJI is now legit again. Until it is not. Again.

Has it ever been not legit?

AdamT: used one and its later FF oppo the 1DS day to day for my job - proper work tools which take a kicking and keep on ticking, I doubt these fragile mirrorless toys of today could take much of that . even the 1D /1DS series got thinner skinned and lighter by the Mk3 stage ,though the loss of those horrible heavyweight NiMh battery packs which hated the cold and went flat in your bag was very welcome indeed (they also lost the irritating three finger salute button setup too) .....

a 1DS / 1D original + 28-70L F2.8 + 70-200L F2.8 + 550EX flash weighed a ton but it`d take anything you could throw at it day in day out and last years .

It's neither "today" not the mirrorless technology that makes cameras look like "toys"... be realistic. It's simply a matter of segmentation. Back in the days there was also the Rebel. Canon has yet to release a 1D-like rugged mirrorless, and it seems it'll happen very soon. Today's cameras are at 6D-5D level (well my R6 feels very solid, I never handled a 6D)... except the flippy screen. Now that yes, it's more practical but it reduces the ruggedness quite a bit imho. I hope the R3 will have a more solid screen than what's there now.

In reply to:

scrup: Does this mean the R6 and 1DXiii use the same sensor?

@scrup Not "this", except few differences all that's been tested before leads to think that they share a very similar sensor.

@ecka84 Release your anger! Let the hate flow through you!
What's next? Now the thing that Intel/AMD are supposedly working on is a stoopid design because guess what, you can't plug/unplug parts of a microchip. Ok. Let's say Apple is still a little more expensive, you can get 16Gb and get done with the SSD wearing out. I was talking about M1 and great performance/price ratio, now you can open another of your haters--gonna-hate gates: the impossibility to change the internal drive. Go, you're unleashed!
Jeez...

@ecka84 If everybody will eventually switch to all-in-one chips, that's significant as a matter of fact, for the market, for the technology, neither "for me" nor for you. Period. You said yourself "What makes you think that Intel/Amd aren't doing the same", hence my answer. Even if it'll turn out that only Apple will do that, that'd be significant anyway FOR THE MARKET, not "only for Apple". It's not like Apple/PC customers segments have been set in stone 40 years ago.... And guess what, now they sell very powerful mini-pc for $700, not only Mac Pro wheels... Apple is more attractive, as I mentioned already (pointlessly, apparently), I exposed the reasons, and I mention it again. Market segments can shift. Sorry dude you talk about enchanted fanboys even when you're presented with facts and solid reasoning, that's barebone "haters-gonna-hate" talking. I'm under the impression that I'm wasting my time here, not you.

@ecka84 "you can't deny that M1 release is pretty significant"
"- It's significant for Apple."
"What makes you think that Intel/AMD are not going to produce anything like that?"
ahem... that's why it's significant - period :) Not outperforming EVERYTHING in the market segment, but as a paradigm it's definitely one of the biggest steps in not-so-recent history. Apple happens to be the first one doing that, the others will follow. About performance let's wait for M1X.
Don't you agree that it's a way more interesting time now than a couple years ago? Add to the new chipset paradigm, more positive changes are coming soon: it's gonna bring back all the stupidly missing USB ports and a proper power connection, while removing the highly criticized touch bar; so Apple started to listen to customers more pro-actively while lowering the prices. Mostly important for Apple users, but it's easy to conclude that Apple is going to attract new ones as well (happening already, see youtube).

@ecka84 What Intel and AMD have in their plan might be interesting, meanwhile this change IS significant and at the moment only Apple is on the market with it.
