For anyone making money on video, this sum is chump change. For all the others, you probably didn't fork out 5500$ for the body alone. So you should complain about Nikon Df, that lacks any video for a cool 3000$.

Ken Johnes: 500 $ for a silly firmware upgrade? and the target audiance for this camera have been waiting eagerly for this AF upgrade .
wow, greed and trying to milk it´s customers with incremental upgrade are gonna hurt the big dogs here, both of em, look at what nikon is trying to do.

i think nikon and canon are competing with each other on how to sell less for more, while other companies are making innovative products at a fair price , no wonder these greedy top dogs have to make up for their loss with such silly act..

The upgrade is much cheaper than getting a new camera. Canon has to be congratulated on this one. Not criticized.

In reply to:

nathondetroit: The only thing that sucks about this generation of cameras is that we're paying more money for less features. There are benefits of usability, and some construction/durability benefits, but in general stripping cameras down to their basics should yield some cheaper bodies as well.

Why not replace a mode dial with a shutter speed dial on the D3200? Why not replace a high res screen with a low res one? (Think M9–If the screen isn't the primary finder, then its performance isn't a necessity). There could be a pretty "hip" plastic rendition of these cameras...

Once "simple" and "retro" break through the "premium" class of cameras, there will be a huge reaction; Throw some real dials on entry levels cameras and give purist consumers a chance to reap the benefits on technological advancement–not pay a premium to get a luxury replication of bricks of the past.

Modern cameras walk all over old ones. Deal with it.

On article Canon EOS 70D Review (722 comments in total)
In reply to:

Jimmy jang Boo: If the $1200 70D is a cutting edge stalwart, it's a seriously dull cutting edge.

Wouldn't be better to call it what it really is? According to dpr, image quality isn't really any better than the NEX-5N, which also meters and focuses better than the 70D. And in terms of low light and high ISO performance, the 70D lags a good distance behind the 5N. Gold must be pretty cheap to be so freely given away.

What good does the sony sensor bring if it's equiped with subpar optics and slow AF?

Sigma is better than nikon telephotos(zooms) and on par with canons. For a lot less.

Wouldn't be easier to have lights sown onto the cloth?

rb59020: Here we go again, another Zeiss bashing session. Most of the readers here would have no problem blowing $800-$1000 on an unlocked iPhone5s that will be obsolete in six months.

What did you people do before the F3AF came out in '83? OMG! It's not autofocus! How am I supposed to take a photo without autofocus!?!

Whaaaaa!

Most iphone users spend 199$ at front and other expenses are ignored.

Impressive.

Pentax uses in raw NR. And it looks bad.

On article Editorial: Why I can't stop taking iPhone Panoramas (298 comments in total)
In reply to:

graybalanced: People forget how inaccessible panorama photography used to be. I used to admire film panoramic cameras and knowing I probably couldn't budget for one.

With film SLRs I fought to stitch scanned film frames together manually. Then software automated the process, and digital SLRs made it even easier.

To have this capability as a one-shot feature in a pocket camera is amazing. (Who cares if this camera is called an iPhone, it's really a versatile 8MP pocket camera with digital wireless capabilities.)

Having this capability in a 700€ phone is meh. Having it in a phone for 70€, now that is amazing.

Because you are paid to do so?

In reply to:

Studio3Jim: Apple gets the press because they started the whole so-called smartphone thing. And somehow what a bunch of needy fanboy photographers think is somewhat less the zero interest to them.
That said I've had dozens of cell phones since the mid eighties and every iPhone since the first. And no other electronic device I've ever owned has had such amazing resale. And my iPhone 64Gb 5c will likely not break my resale streak.
Can any other cellphone model or digital camera for that matter claim as much???
We know the answer. And for now that's why they're the single largest selling individual models made. Worldwide.
Move on. Please.

Iphone is a yupi gadget. Alnd the american yupis define in the world what is "in". It's a class defining thing. If you can fork 700 to 1200$ for a phone, then you are "enlightened". Same goes for every other apple product. You are special if you use apple.

jcmarfilph: 1020 is clearly superior in IQ, even if you normalize the resolution. I am not sure how an iPhone camera with sensor smaller than a pinhead would excite a photographer?

Having the latest same very expensive phone is all that some need.

Looks like nikon found their niche. Interesting camera.

zigi_S: To all you sony fanboys out there. SLT isn't the same tech as on sensor pdaf. SLT still has a mirror! And it's nothing new. The SLT concept is old and only a desperate manufacturer like SONY would try to market it like inovation. It will be funny when mew canon M models will AF much better than the NEX system. Where will be the new tech from sony then? Sony's on sensor PDAF is inferior to CANON's. It loses light!

It doesn't matter if it will. For now Canon's AF adaptation is superior to Sony's. What will come in the future, who knows. But SLT isn't the same tech as PDAF on sensor because it isn't on THE SENSOR! And the olympus em1 solution is inferior to canon's 70D solution because it loses pixel information. So saying that sony's tech is more advanced is laughable. It's not Canon that has to catch up, but Sony. Canon lags only in shadow noise. That's about it.

Well the biggest waste of space are the equivalence brigade and the pentax/sony fanboys. Everything else is pretty much fresh air.
