MarcoSartoriPhoto: What I really like in this camera is the multi aspect sensor. Curious nobody mention it.

I never chose the angle of view as a diagonal of the image (this is what is kept constant!), but always in horizontal or vertical direction!

There is no aspect ratio that uses the full resolution of the sensor, it's always cropped. I would not call this an advantage. It is the precondition for a compact lens.

Bgfreeman: So this new film will exit the wrong side of the cassette and only have sprocket holes on one side?

Interesting. Wonder what sort of camera this is intended for.

did you ever use 35mm film?
I found some old Kodachrome rolls these days, everything looks the same.

FuhTeng: I'm surprised the screen isn't flip-around-to-the-front capable like the G9.

It looks nice and I continue to read about how Panasonic has done so much right with their m4/3 cameras, so I'm interested, but not in the market for this since I'm a Nikon DSLR owner and the Z twins are appealing to me.

I'm curious, however, that if I wanted to go FF from scratch (starting inexpensive and working my way up), I think there's little case for this camera for me. I shoot stills for money and video for fun so the high-quality video that's inevitably coming from these two isn't helpful for me.

I'm very curious to see where this goes. So much will depend on Sigma filling out the reasonably-priced lenses quickly. Yes, I'm ignoring Leica because of their insane prices for sane lenses.

I'm also curious how well DfD autofocus is going to work with the larger sensor and smaller DoF.

Yes

stedeo: This gallery proves that the R has a formidable af, excellent colors and produces images with great photographic performance. Thanks Canon!

....as usual with mirrorless cameras

Rihass: Almost the perfect camera. No IBIS. OMG I was ready to preorder it. I have the XT20 without IBIS and it is a pain.

even with stabilzed lenses for video IBIS is very welcome because it compensates rotational shakes.

Fwiler1: Really well done. Both of you have a great voice and speaking ability that makes me want to keep on watching. And never loose the humor even if Chris's face does look like a garbage can.

as a non-native-english-speaker I'm glad that I understand every word in all these videos from Chris and Jordan

mike earussi: Canon is obviously too afraid of gutting the sales of their dslrs to turn out a competitive product. It's quite pathetic and parsimonious and very short sighted on their part. Seriously, who would buy one when Sony is so much superior?

Ok. Three years with Olympus and no problems with IBIS.

@Jack Jian
did you ever try a modern mirrorless camera that combines IBIS and in-lens-stabilization? It's not redundant, the combination is superior! 1 second or more handheld, and if you don't need that, every handheld video is obviously more stable, no swaying horizon, even when walking!

In reply to:

medon78: I guess nobody really expected Canon to surprise us with all the hoped-for features in their first shot.
Nevertheless, for stills the camera will be a joy to use, and it will sell like hot cakes.
Sooner or later Canon will in further generations finally add decent 4k video. But I am very afraid Canon will never ever add IBIS, which really makes me sad.
Again, as expected...

"at the edges/corner where the sensor moves to a greater extent" no, that's not correct - only when rotation is compensated, a movement that in-lens-stabilization can't stabilize. I have Olympus as second system and their IBIS is superior. A best solution: lens-stabilization PLUS IBIS !

Kalin: Now it's Sony's turn to do the right thing and update the support for old A-mount lenses on FE cameras. There's tons of great A-mount lenses out there despite what you often read on these pages. The current LA-4, or whatever it is called, is a huge, ugly affair with outdated mechanics. Did I mention it is huge and ugly?

Come on Sony; you make fantastic cameras... it can't be that difficult to make one good adapter, right?

Problem is the motor! Even this Nikon adapter has no motor and so does only support newer lenses with built-in AF drive in terms of autofocus.

In reply to:

tlinn: Setting up AF functionality to mimic 3D AF seems obvious but I don't know that we can assume that it would be as good in a mirrorless body given the different hardware used for AF.

Richard Butler is "not criticizing the AF algorithms themselves: we've not fully tested it yet but the Z 7's tracking seems incredibly sticky: my concern is solely about the user interface"

I think emulating negative films is nonsense. It always depended more on the printing lab than on the type of film how the images looked like. The differences in color where huge when I ordered prints in different labs, with identical negatives!

Tieu Ngao: I want a compact camera of similar size but with different features:
- 24-85mm f/1.8-2.8
- grip
- made in Japan
- one more dial
- better menu (something like Nikon's)
- $800
IS IT POSSIBLE???

Try Canon G5x

24-105 needs another update! I'm perfectly happy with my 70-200 f/4 IS.

deep7: A big thumbs up to Panasonic for chucking in a viewfinder. I absolutely hate using cameras without them.

I totally agree - but I also hate cameras without RAW format.

the 14mm Yongnuo lens with this awkward adaptor is bigger and heavier than a mFT camera with appropriate lens! Silly.
