maxz: 'Canon is willing to cannibalize DSLR sales with mirrorless cameras' - Translation 'Sony's mirrorless has been cannibalizing our DSLRs'

the information is readily available in Sony's IR day reports as already mentioned, just because you can't find them, don't whine to me.

and you're the only one that apparently, I have to "prove it to" good grief.

who the heck are you anyways?

I stated where the number came from, many other people have managed to find the number in relevant threads about this very subject, i don't NEED to prove anything to to you if you can't figure it out on your own.

CaptainNoddy: Canon is diversifying their products to maintain the profit.

They know that they cannot maintain their market share leader for high end cameras in the future, given that their old tech.

Look at Fujifilm, their main profit is from INSTAX Cameras and Printers, rather than the X-series MILC.

huh? this has zero to do with their camera side of the business.

and btw, Canon expects to continue to grow it's marketshare.

you obviously didn't look that extensively if you didn't look at the IR day financials.

rrccad: There's a large assumption here that mirrorless mounts mean short registration mounts and that both Canon and nikon will decide to orphan a quarter of a billion lenses in the F and EF mounts.

Both canon and nikon have full electronic mounts now, even the older F mount with the G lenses is fully electronic.

There's nothing stopping both Canon and Nikon from using their existing mounts.

In a way, they should look at what happened to Sony and the A mount and how sony has faired overall in moving their customer base and growing it over time. It really hasn't happened.

There's alot of internet hype, but Sony hasn't really moved the needle anymore with the FE mount and they literally killed off their A mount business.

that would be a huge risk to Canon and NIkon, killing off their massive mount marketshares for the sake of 20mm of registration distance savings that matter to just a few.

let me know when you stop your endless whining about me not thinking Sony is relevant.

I'm not sure why it's so important you do. Do you sleep with your sony gear as well?

Lenses can be made smaller for a small subset of focals, you don't have to quote someone and waste two posts on something that is generally agreed upon.

however UWA is a niche market. you don't see a massive gain for normal wide to normal zooms.

and you certainly see a loss on telephoto, where telephoto lenses have to be longer with a short registration distance.

So again why change the mount, when sony has so demonstrated you can't keep both mounts going well, as the A mount is basically dead on arrival right now for what remains to be seen as a minor benefit to a subset of users.

you are saying NOTHING that disputes what my original post was about, so why are you still bothering to write in here?

oh please RD you run into every thread you want and take it over with your fanboyism that's the worst kind of abuse that this site actually has.

YOu stated"I've seen an M5 - it's an A7 body rip off."

well no if it's not ergonomically similar then it's not a rip off of one camera over the other. Form and function is entirely different. the M5 has far more functions you can adjust without taking your eye from the viewfinder? and joystick? the M5 has far superior touch control AF.

is that hard to comprehend? Do you actually understand the context of the English language?

the M5 has cramped ergonomics as well, did I say it didn't?

the SL2 and rebels have cramped ergonomics as well, that was the point of it that you so clearly missed in your defense of all things related to Sony.

Maybe if you got off your Sony soapbox and wanted to actually have an intelligent conversation for once, people and not just me, wouldn't get to the point of tossing abuse at you. You bring it on yourself.

@Marty, it really depends, will it bring revenues back up? and to what?

it's really unknown if short registration distance mirrorless which is entirely different than mirrorless on the whole would be the pancea that people expect it to be.

It hasn't been for sony, who's shown minimal growth over time in mirrorless and a complete destruction of thier A mount business.

Canon did it in the past, but they also weren't overwhelmingly #1 at the time either.

M5 and the A7? no you haven't if that's what you think it is.. but what would I expect from a Sony Fanboy? realism.. unlikely.

i mean are you that stupid that you think these two top views are the same ergonomically? Grow the heck up. you claim you have held both (presumably used both) and think these operate the same?

Yeah okay. You know what RD... go pollute the rest of the these threads defending your precious sony, let me know when you actually can face reality.

it's not, and only someone that just looks at spec sheets would think that.
anyways, why are you bothering to blather in my subthread anyways, don't you have enough other sony fires to fight?

@RD the mode dial wasn't included. if did i would be five dials. try harder? the mode dial isn't one that is really used for haptic / ergonomic reasons, only a raving idiot would think so.

@T3 you don't get it and you never will. You have no clue to what canon intends to do with the EF-M mount, don't act as you know. Especially when the EF-M mount is current operated by the powershot group and not the DSLR group.

there is no ergonomic nor real practical reason out outside of niche markets for canon to go with the EF-M with a much smaller throat diameter than the EF mount.

it's fully electronic, and doesn't save anything as far as body space, if they want to make it small, they can do so with the SL2 / T6 sized camera bodies just the same as they do now.

If they want to add full XD series ergonomics, it's going to be as big as the XD series is now, regardless of mount.

so why add an adapter for no reason whatsoever?

@RD, actually it's not, only a sony fanboy would assume that a quad dial arrangement is the same as what you have on an A7.

@T3 .. apparently the grasp of the subject is too much for you. so here's the short summery. adapters don't product the quarter of a billion in investment in the mount marketshare, as evidenced by Sony getting "adapters" for their A series cameras for the FE mount and the A mount marketshare collapsing.

Try to keep up, who knows you may even make a valid point one of these days.

also the ergonomics dictates the size of the camera, more than the mount, is that too hard to grasp for you, then please, infect another thread with your dribble.

"Source? That only thing I can find from that 13% figure is from 2015. Things have changed since then, I'd imagine."

I already said it was from their financials... lol

May 2017. their latest, and they haven't stated much about any increases since then.

Adapters aren't a buy in to an existing infra structure, it's amazing that so many sony fans don't look in their own backyard to the graveyard that the A mount has become.

People don't like adapters, no one likes adapters, it's one more physical month surface and two more areas where tolerances can come into play. Not to mention weathersealing,etc.

Canon and Nikon risking a mount marketshare of around 200 million? for a short registration distance change that only affects a minority of people?

ergonomcs more than the mount determines the size of the camera.

If canon or nikon wants to create a camera with the same pinched ergonomics and lack of haptics as a Sony A7 series they can create one the same size on an EF or F mount without a problem. If they want to to create cameras with the same class of haptics and ergonomics as their D8xx or 5D Series bodies, then guess, what. regardless of mount, they will be the same size anyways.

This general concept fails most people.

*rolls eyes* no, this is the second generation of that sensor.

ShaiKhulud: So it's like STARVIS but from Canon? 2mpx (though Sony is producing 6mpx STARVIS as well), high ISO, professional use only.

Not bad, but I fear Canon is kinda late to the party. STARVIS is 3 years old tech by now and will be upgraded (if not already) soon.

To all trolls: there is almost nothing remotely scalable to a consumer camera here. Move along.

the original version of this sensor came out before STARVIS. this is the second generation.

On article Quick look: Canon's new compressed Raw format (242 comments in total)
In reply to:

a777: There is only one reason to mess with RAW - it's for speed. Not for space. Space is cheap. Speed is expensive. Just don't leave users without option to use pure lossless RAWs, like Sony or Panasonic did or actually do.
And again, it's not strictly right to use lossy compressed image format to show us decompressed resulting images, like DPR do in test charts. Impact is low, of course. But I prefer something better than jpeg when comparing RAWs.

space isn't cheap if you add on historical data archival off site.

On article Video: Canon shows off its new 120MP APS-H CMOS sensor (217 comments in total)
In reply to:

Zoom Zoom Zoom: :
Hummmmmmmmmm, lets see: in fact this 120MP sensor has been years in the talking, while just last year Canon already showed a newer 250MP APS-H prototype. So why recycling extremely old tech news instead of at least, recycling the vaporware news of last year? Maybe because none of this is reality, certainly NOT the 250MP news of last year that is far more exciting than this BS that goes on for years on end, and ultimately is all talk. Its so sad to see a brand going down the tube and having ABSOLUTELY NOTHING top talk about except throwing s..t like this to their marketing department to generate some sort of industry buzz

In the meanwhile, Canon cant it even put proper 4K in their cameras over half a decade it became a mainstream standard..

and how is that mainstream for a half a decade? and 4k in a tiny sensor isn't what we're talking about here.
