  • There’s nothing magic about full frame. It’s size comes from a film format invented by Leica in the 1930’s.  My point is, we aren’t seeing mass migration to medium format at all, so what’s so ...
  • R5 and R6 are both fantastic upgrades from the 5D3.  I had the 5D4 and loved it… when the EOS R came out, I didn’t think it was enough of an upgrade, but the fast AF of the 5 and 6 are just fantastic.
  • Come to think of it, I also have a GoPro, for scuba diving. The R5 isn’t very good for that without a very expensive housing.
  • It’s obviously not a money thing, so I think it boils down to whether you’ll shoot much video, and how you think you’ll shoot it. And maybe you’ll want a backup body that doesn’t have IBIS, as ...
  • I’m with State Farm. They’re great.
  • Thanks, Carl. I think you’re right.
  • I think mirrorless is the Age of Software for cameras. Mirrorless tech has been around over ten years, but it’s taken very fast processor advances and AI techniques to make mirrorless AF as fast ...
  • Zero deductible, because it’s a special endorsement, or “rider.”
  • The definition of dual boot means a computing system which can boot up from one of two operating systems. Sometimes, that lets you choose between UNIX or Windows. Other times, it’s a fail safe ...
  • It’s no good until somebody figures out how to make it good. I mean… the concept is great, nobody can deny that.
  • I don’t think the OS architecture is relevant. Whether it is a separate boot image or the same image booting into a different mode doesn’t matter. We won’t know until some hackers work on it.
  • Canon sells a brand new APS-C DSLR with zoom lens for $449 at Best Buy, so to be honest, I don’t think it’s a big stretch to offer that in full frame, especially if consumers will accept a ...
  • Basic math: Two hundred fifty thousand $4,000 cameras is one billion dollars, then you add $2,000 lenses and it’s not chicken feed. But I’ve been a vendor and I know the volumes, and the APS-C ...
  • It’s entirely possible that they might move a lot more cameras to FF to compete against smartphones. I just don’t know. But I’ve been a FF photographer since 2017.
  • Yes, Tom, I am certain you’re correct. I don’t know the actual pricing, but FF sensor pricing has clearly come down over the past ten years. They aren’t putting $500 sensors in $999 cameras, ...
  • Seriously? You are trying to correct  me by repeating what I already said in the very first sentence of my post. That’s impolite.
  • I didn’t mind the added weight of the FF camera, but the lenses!! Yikes! I love the shallow DoF I can get with a FF camera, though. And it’s better in low light. Still, Tom, APS-C outsells FF ...
  • Nikon calls it Matrix Metering, Canon calls it Evaluative Metering.  Definitely the best all-around option. Spot Metering is the one that often produces poor results, because many don’t understand ...
  • No idea whether it is dual-boot or not, but I love the switch.  I wish my R5 was like that.  It would be much easier to use if you turn it on in Stills mode, and only stills settings appear… then ...
  • In particular, if you’re only attaching a small external monitor, you only need a short, 1080p connection and those cables are light and thin. I agree they should have used a full-size connector, ...
