Bet this is like their focus fix algorithm that turned out to be fake and was only refocusing a pic their software scrambled. I don't believe Adobe on any if their "innovations " anymore!

DesoloZantas: Hopefully it will run Android

(It's not going to be Apple unless Apple buys off canon)

Never going to happen. It's a camera not a phone!

Yes you are crazy. Paying $120 a year for a program that used to be valid to own for 2 to 3 years for just $79 or $129.

Hobbyists aren't businesses that will pay inflated prices yearly to use software. Adobe is adrift.

In reply to:

grock: So I've been wondering this for years, having only barely used Lightroom at all over the past decade: When I started out I didn't have Lightroom, and used Photoshop, Bridge, and Camera Raw, and I've got my system pretty down pat. What is the advantage of Lightroom? Is it more the organization tools?

It's fundamentally the full ACR but without photoshop part.

It only said renaming CC, not about no windows software

p51d007: No matter what they do, it's still a PINHOLE sensor. Granted, they don't do too bad of a job for a pocket camera, but, until the industry starts making the SIZE of the sensor larger, along with a REAL glass 5-10X optical zoom lens, nothing is really going to change.

If the point is to be able to take pics that look good on a phone, then they are on point. Large screen viewing and printing is declining probably faster than interchangeable lens camera sales!

DarnGoodPhotos: Developing custom chips has worked very well for Apple so this will be great for Pixel 2 owners as well.

That's if google stays in the phone business long. They have a history of jumping in and out of endeavors abruptly.

photofreak1972: Serious Filmmakers/Cameramen/Camerawoman do not use AF at all. It is a skill to work with a camera with MF. Nothing else, the rest is consumer-oriented, nothing more.
If someone can make a good film with a Nikon D3s, he/she can make this better with this new D850. Also many short films are made in stop-motion since the first digital still camera came out.

Again, you don't need to be a "serious " user use this camera and to need Usable video and live view autofocus!

In reply to:

Jon Hillenbrand: In terms of video continuous auto focus, I honestly would never use that on any video camera. And I don't know that any serious videographer would. If you're a serious videographer, you'll hook up an external monitor via HDMI that will have its own focus assist and a follow focus on a rail system and you'll focus the way god intended, with your hand. So I don't see how continuous auto focus performing badly is a mark against this camera. To me, it's a non-issue.

You don't have to be a "serious " user to use autofocus video or want usable live view autofocus!

Sdaniella: Canon Powershot G1x Mark III
G1xMkIII APSC sensor, may be a newer version of older APSC EOS 80D*
not current new APSC 77D/SL2

*RAW CR2 converts to DNG (Android RAW2DNG) that look normal in Android LR Mobile (80D, 5DMkIV, are older, G1xMkIII DNG may be same protocol)

RAW2DNG creates DNGs from newer EOS 77D/SL2/M5/M6, and even EOS 6DMkII that are still too new to look "carry over" from older protocols, to look correct at the moment in LR Mobile (new = look uneditable correctly, colors are strange)

looks like excellent optics, so far (may exceed alternative EFM/EFS budget lenses)

high ISO 6400 RAW images at (LV 4.33 EV @ ISO 100; dpr tests @ LV 3.33 EV) look decent on long FL (raised shadows in dim light)
but need more examples to scrutinize optics at Wide Angle FL, 24mm ff.equiv.fov

hope it means DR closer to older 24mp APSC EOS 80D than newer budget 24mp APSC EOS 77D/SL2, or new APSC EOS M5/M6

It's all based on the 80D sensor, not new.

Jeff Peterman: It looked great. Until I saw that the lens was F2.8-5.6. It probably closes down pretty quickly so that the f2.8 is only at the wide end too.

Noise: who cares? With a short 3x zoom you typically use it at the shortest or longest focal length!

In reply to:

Sergey Borachev: Limited zoom range in a lens that is also slow (at least in shutter speed at the longer FLs). Why bother with the larger APSC sensor? Cant Canon afford a sensor that is not designed for other cameras if it wants to have a small body?

No dude, comparing it to the mark 2 it is replacing not the 1in sensor cams!

Shorter?! They already shortened it from 120 to 70mm FOV!

Edmond Leung: I am wondering why so many people say it is expensive. Maybe there are too many poor people now. For only $1300, I can get the smallest and lightest APSC zoom camera in the world; if I don't buy it, buy what? $1300 is just 1/2 the price of an air ticket!

Because the lens is frickin' slow! 2 stops slower and just over half the range which very much negates the slightly larger image sensor!

Link | Posted on Oct 17, 2017 at 07:54 UTC

$1300 for a M5 with fixed slow kit zoom lens?! Really Canon?!
