Indohydra: These need to be made far more discreet.

No they shouldn't! Please show off these snapchat dorks so I can avoid them.

who really makes this film? I'm assuming it's just another rebadge?

Aroart: Jared Poland is a Photographer that could not hack it as a professional so he decided to teach.. This is not my conclusion he said it himself in an interview with Scott Kelby... I would not take any photographer seriously when there catch phrase is I shoot RAW and I don't crop...

Colin Stuart: Used smugglr to move everything from my flickr to my smugmug. deleted everything on flickr and then deleted my flickr and yahoo accounts prior to the merger officially happening and TOS updating.

Screw this merger. I still had one year of pro subscription left on flickr but oh well.

because I didn't want Verizon to own my images. And Flickr's service was already deteriorating under Yahoo's ownership. New crappy image compression being applied... annoying interface... among other things... I started up a smugmug a year earlier to begin the migration / getting used to the new site.

not exactly fair. it does prove a point sure, but this is in an all-white environment really, not too dark, nothing really in the background to be out-of-focus, and just stationary subjects. Allows for low ISO, plenty of time to nail focus, not really showing off any bokeh, etc.

The kit lens + rebel trying to keep up with fast moving things, dark environments, busier backgrounds etc... would be a pretty poor experience. The 40/2.8 isn't too bad at least.

I'm surprised it was biennial and not annual already.

Tech changes fast. Makes sense.

Exactly.

I think Sigma could be quite a contender in the Camera market if they wanted to be. They have a STUNNING set of lenses now... just no camera of their own to back it up. Sure there's this and the SD1 Merrill but really they're quite obscure and easily lose out compared to Nikon/Canon/Sony/Pentax's offerings.

The foveon sensor is interesting but its small size has its drawbacks. They need to refresh the Sigma SA mount. Have it support at least an APS-C but preferably a full-frame size sensor, even better if they can integrate their Foveon technology, otherwise get a nice one from Sony. From there, work on the ergonomics, handling, and the AF system and they might have something here.

Whoever is designing/engineering the Art/Sport series of lenses, get that team involved with building a proper DSLR.

Bob 1: It might be fun to try again... lets see, new batteries, where did I store that slide projector... do I even still have it? Where can I get it developed... $40 bucks +#$T!! Congrats to those who still shoot analog :) Here is something you might enjoy watching: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HszEKQjGvQE
HAGD, Bob :)

Bob, 800 is a... LOT of pictures. Even for digital. How many of them are actually keepers? If film has taught me anything it's restraint.... don't take a million pictures of the same or similar thing. Has helped me too in my digital workflow, less pictures to throw out, even if it doesn't save money it saves time.

Class A: A "disappointment" is the result of expectations not being met. What were your expectations?

That the camera is somehow innovative? You don't know in what way, but it needs to be innovative somehow?

You write that Canon has not been innovative for 10 years now, but you are still living through a "big disappointment" because they have failed to be innovative (showing "reinvention") again? Were 10 years not enough to adjust your expectations?

You speak of a "big disappointment" but you just go on and on how great the camera is. Your only point seems to be that you would have liked to have seen the camera two years earlier.

So Canon should not have released this camera because it is "too late anyhow"?

I have to ask: Has DPReview now descended to the level of using click-bait article headlines? I have never seen such an example of the opposite of a "Damning with faint praise". What is this? A "Praise with faint damning"?

exactly. a whole lot of whining and nothing substantial said.

wootpile: It's a great piece of software - but I refuse to pay a cloud fee for it. over a 10 year - span - PS CC will cost you $1200. hope they go broke.

Over a 10yr span, that's nothing. PS was $300-600+ before. If they upgraded it every year or every couple/few years, you'd see a savings with sticking with CC. Even with the upgrade price which is cheaper, or skipping a version. CC overall is much better.

Lassoni: Damn! Tokina lenses always look good. I hope this 24-70 will be better than Tamron, even if it doesn't have IS. Would be nice to see this company up in the game!

And the price of 11-20 is practically steal when you compare it to the other brands offering. Sure it's not cheap, but it ain't bad.

I miss my 11-16 :(

they don't only look good, they feel great. work well too.
