On article Interview: Canon's Chuck Westfall on the new XC10 (352 comments in total)

Canon, Nikon - Ford, Chevy. Same thing different product. If a hobby just buy and wear it completely out before buying a new one.
I enjoy seeing the internet replacing TV as an advertising medium. Amazing to see for an old timer like me.

Wow, those are some pricy bags. I kinda agree. It would scare me to death flying with one. Economy must be booming.

In reply to:

mahonj: It is about giving as many options at as many price points as possible for the minimum amount of extra engineering.
The innovation is the 24 Mpix sensor, which is available in 2 different bodies at prices $100 apart.
You don't have to get angry about it, just buy the one which best suits your budget.

Quit funny Donnie. LOL

Hard to imagine what is going on with Canon.
A very good article by the way. I enjoyed it, and agree.

He looks like a very unhappy camper in this interview. Cheer up Chuck.

I haven't bought a Canon product in almost 3 years. I would love to try one of these out. But, I ain't going to buy one.
I agree with others I would buy the 810 instead without a doubt. And I am a Canon shooter.

If much improved AF I am in. If not I'm out.

MXC: need to have good AF, high ISO capability, tons of native lens... and good price

Extremely poor selection of glass. Where is the 50mm 1.8, 35mm lens... I'll personally wait for the official review by DP... :)

Wow, they have addressed the main issues with out a doubt. Amazing.
These guys are the 800 lb. gorilla going after the market in a serious way.

JMDean: 84%? That’s a little high IMO. This camera should rank down in the mid 70’s. Image Quality seems a little high on your scale. The only thing good about this camera is its build quality and performance. You couple in the poor image quality and the Value should go way down.
I purchased this camera and after shooting around 2000 images I can honestly say this is the worse Canon I have ever bought as far as image quality. That includes the Rebels I own. The quality of the images are so bad for the price range, that this will be the first camera I have ever returned. I hope Canon does better on its next release because this one sure left a bad taste in my mouth.
All the poor reviews about image quality are pretty spot on.

Personally I can live with little things that can be fixed by service. Or an eventual software update. But, you cannot fix a crummy sensor with either. On the plus side. If this keeps going on? I will pick up a new one for less than a thousand dollars soon.

garyknrd: What a camera! Insane sensor. If Nikon had the lenses I like to shoot with. I would make a lateral move in a heart beat.

I've got two Canon lightweight primes. Until they redo there 300/2.8 and 500/4. I am stuck with Canon. It is just a matter of time. They have started... the 800mm and 400mm are here. But, not the two lenses I use. All the best,Gary

I use a small and excellent Pentax K-3 for my landscape shots. For the life of me I cannot understand the stalling on the sensor fab? If this camera had a good sensor in it. I would pay the 1,800 bucks without hesitation. It would give me a good all around camera and an excellent sports camera.
Like it is I will just pass.

Very nice, and a big thanks. Reading and researching is just not enough. This real world example really puts it all in place for me.

Awfully close to the 7d. Nice camera, but I still like the 7d, and it does a pretty good job. I think the sports guys will really like this camera. I am going to wait until the next ID and 5D series come out to make up my mind.
Next trip into town I will try one out though... :)

It made me realize how much of a scam the pics of wildlife are from so called famous wildlife photographers. Extremely poor IMO. What happened to the thrill of the chase?
But, I am impressed with DPreview. Very informative. Thanks
