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

EthanP99: Oh nevermind! Canon has been always tricking us... This 120mp sensor is from 2010. Do they re hash this old crap when someone is stealing their marketshare? Seems desperate.

120_megapixel_apsh_format_cmos_sensor.do

no one is stealing their marketshare. it's actually growing, they are stealing form others.

try that narrative in the sony forums you'll have better luck.

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..

4K mainstream 5 years ago? really? on what planet?

the 1DC which was the the first ILC that did 4K was 6 years ago.

Camera Conspiracies: We always knew Canon were crippling their cameras to not cannibalize their higher end models, but it feels weird to hear them admit it. I understand the strategy, but with Sony throwing almost everything at the a7iii, it makes Canon look so selfish now. Someone brilliant marketing by Sony on this one.

@blackcoffee17 you missed the obvious sarcasm.

@BlueBomberTurbo the A6000 with kit lens was 799 at launch. didn't have a touch screen, no 4k of any sort, etc.

the A3000 was not even comparable to this conversation. canon also has a M100 which sits below this.

ProfHankD: Well, this is a little depressing. The idea that "It’s just a matter of combining [those components] together" to build a high-end mirrorless is a blessing and a recurring problem for Canon; it certainly keeps cost down and gives models a consistent feel, but it's hard to be innovative that way. I also find it hard to believe that they are still unresolved about the mount while talking about having an entire pro body/lens line released by the 2020 Olympics.

To put it bluntly, my 5D IV barely beats my A7 -- it doesn't compete with my A7R II, and there's already an A9, A7R III, etc. There's also price-competitive medium-format mirrorless in the mix now. Canon's very late to this game, and I don't think they can rely on brand loyalty to make-up for that... certainly, it hasn't been enough for the EOS-M line.

The 5D IV's biggest issue is they botched dual-pixel encoding. They essentially set exposure based on one side and then add, rather than average, the two sides, often blowing out the pixel data. The dual-pixel raw format is also A+B,B with exposure/encoding adjusted for B. This could probably be fixed in firmware, but Canon has never acknowledged the problem... I'm hoping Magic Lantern will implement a fix.

are you still on this kick?

average wouldn't prevent halfs from clipping. a half can clip well before the entire 14 bit space of the summed half clip. each half well can saturate by itself.

summing versus averaging doesn't change the problem. the problem is that when you sum or average with one half in saturation, you have inaccurate color, which is why canon always clips it below half well saturation.

I'm surprised someone with as much knowledge apparently can miss something so obvious.

and you're comparing the 5D Mark IV to the A7? really?

yeah okay..

Right. a A7III is at the same "entry level" as a M50.

@RD .. more creepy stuff ..

again, i linked an article. is this stuff too hard for you to follow? really?

I commented the OP who posted, shall I say:
"Just sitting back and enjoying the popcornand my grandma's cupcakes as the DSLR people get upset over the A7iii success "

That i yawned about.

which is prefectly within my right to do so. got a problem with that? go back to your sony forum safe spot snowflake.

it's you, the consummate Sony fanboy and thread troll that takes offense to that because HOW DARE SOMEONE CRITICIZE SONY.

It's people like you that feed a sony distaste in my mouth like i puked up a bit.

here you are still continuing because you started to cry on the forth post of this sub-thread.

how much posting do I do in the Sony forums? do i derail threads there? do i totally derail threads continually on sony related subjects as much as you do?

Don't be such a flaming hypocrite.

PS.. that website is registered in the US, I'm in Canada.

I repost articles.

If i repost an article from CNN does that mean I own them too?

I should play this game easy way to be a millionarie just re-post articles is "proof of ownership" to you.

LOL

really? you stalking me and claiming you know personal information about me isnt' against the TOS?

Right buddy.

Grow up. Get out of forums and topics that have no concern to you. Who knows, you may even learn how to use a camera too.

"You've also wasted a lot of people's patience with your endless ad hominem attacks"

Right, and of course, your continual overtaking of threads with your endless debates because someone dares to criticize your darling Sony is an entirely different story.

Look at this one and how you derailed it?

You couldn't even SIMPLY ADMIT that you were WRONG about marketshare and what Sony was reporting and leave it at that, you had to spiril it totally out of control.

Look in the mirror buddy. The grief your bring on you is your own doing.

@RD..

that's a creepy bit of stalking for a little sony fan boy. that would assume you actually know my real name ;)

let's see .. what do you do on a daily basis..

you sit whining and complaining and trolling in about Canon in articles and forums and doing what useful exactly?

nothing?

That to me would be the most pathetic thing. you don't see ME wasting my life making hundreds of posts in the Sony forums and also on Sony threads.

Sounds like you need to leave your mom's basement and join the real world ;)

Still can't man up that the little sony troll boy was wrong again?

Even if I did that is so far more useful than you sitting in dpreview.com being a Sony fan boy in every possible subject. One is being creative, you are simply pathetic.

Next?

Droster: Saying "mirror is going to be dead" is like saying film is dead. Apparently film is still very alive and somehow having a renaissance. DSLRs will probably end up like that and fill a specific niche. People who want big and grippy cameras or task specific flagships like the 1Dx and D5 will still want DSLRs. Mirrorless will take over the rest and majority of the market, but so long as users pick the right tool for the job, it won't kill film (again) and DSLRs.

congrats slatts, at least there's one person using the A mount.

Tieu Ngao: Canon needs only 2-3% more to have 50% ILC market shares, and that's not impossible. What about other manufacturers? Here's what I think:
Fuji: needs 1-2 more models for pro (>$2000), and 2-3 models under $1000
Sony: is doing fine on FF but it needs new A6xxx model priced under $1500, also couple of new A5xxx models under $1000.
Nikon: must hurry on both FF and APS-C mirrorless and new lenses.
The market is getting more interesting...

canon has around a 47.8% of the entire ILC market as of 2017.

Edgar_in_Indy: While Canon is in the process of reinventing their wheel, I hope they can swallow their pride enough to finally add IBIS to their bodies.

they don't have the patent porfolio for it and continue to research in lens IS improvements. so in other words, highly unlikely.

"people who want "big and grippy" mirrorless can get it with sony a-mount"

no one buys a a-mount camera, it's like finding a pink unicorn.

Mike CH: I never cease to be amazed that - supposedly intelligent - people can seriously keep up that “They are doomed, doomed, doomed”-song about a market player that’s been sitting solidly on the number one spot for over a decade.

"a poll of 200 people is far more legitimate than what a couple of uninformed canon fanbois think."

yeah 200 non-random people out of the 30-50 million canon customers out there.

real accuracy .. that poll ..

@RubberDials
try reading that again, slower this time. they report their overall marketshare, not their mirrorless one anymore.

was it REALLY that hard?

"Cost/features alone makes the A7iii a big deal ...."

yawn.

People have been saying that about the A850, the A7, A7II, and now the A7III.. and yet here we are.. Sony still lingering with a 14% marketshare, the same as what they had in 2008, and they even now curiously refuse to report on their mirrorless marketshare anymore.

So big news? maybe in your universe

In reply to:

telawrence: Sony has a huge head start in FF. The recent A7III at that price point wipes the floor with the 6D ii. Even in APS-C, Canon can't match Fuji in AF or lenses(converters don't count). The same applies to Nikon, who are going to give mirrorless a miss and are looking for the post-mirrorless technology! It took Sony a few years to get to this point, does anyone really think Nikon and Canon will be competitive with their first FF camera?

canon and nikon don't have to compete against Sony, their mirrorless cameras will be competing against their own DSLR lineups.

Sony is still pretty much a non factor eating the crumbs off the table from canon and nikon who control over 3/4's of the market.

Canon with EASE took over from Sony in the highly profitable domestic market, they didn't even have to work at it.

The real battle will be between Canon and Nikon to who gains the most mirrorless followers.
