Elaka Farmor: So if the competition were weak it means ”no need to level-up”?

"But given the position of the M50 in the lineup, we can’t include all of the features available in a product like the 5D IV" = Canon style crippling of functionality.

From the tone of the interview it doesn't look like big C will be leveling up at any significant speed this year. Probably no FF mirrorless before end 18

Potemkin_Photo: It'll probably be done the pike for a few years yet. Canon is infamous for dragging their feet and glacial speed in adding meaningful updates to their bodies. I'd peg a serious mirrorless entry by canon at 2025. No need to hold breath this year.

I don't think the hidebound management at either company will respond quickly enough. Canon's C-suite in particular is more like Tolkien's ents in regards to responding.

So if Ccd sensors are all the rage then the original canon eos 1d should be king of the hill.

PhotoKhan: Jesus, Barney...

The biggest problem in today's politics is the disconnect between most politicians and the common worries of the common man, a disconnect that, when multiplied and unchecked for, leads to the type of problems you're closer to than I am.

It is most unfortunate that you decided to transpose that disconnect to your editorial stance by electing a camera that should be as much "Gear of the Year", as Uwe Koetter Chastity Belt should be considered "Underwear of the Year".

As always, I contemplate the distinct possibility that I am not seeing things as they should be seen.

...but I can't shake this feeling that you'll be the one to regret this choice in the coming future.

I wouldn't aspire to this camera even if I had the funds for it. It's like a pentax with extra rhinestones. And you can take the same pics with a powershot. Even if a volkswagon beetle was handcrafted from titanium it might be considered well built, but that doesn't mean it qualifies for 100,000 of my greenbacks.

Dean Mindock: Wow, looks like Sony got a serious competitor. Lots of innovation packed into that camera.

Yup they should've stuck FF or MF sensor in there for same price. Then maybe...

I don't know that you say this competes with FF sony mirrorless. The M 4 3 sensor is just too small and will fare poorly in low light. I love my EM5 for video but forget about low light for stills; pull out the FF for that.

That being said, with the smaller sensor and the sacrifices to be had, they should reduce price to $599.

Have a spotter watch for enforcement people. When they pop up, break away into several groups and each of you ID yourself as an amateur. Voila get out of jail free card lives again

Mike Strong: Apologies if this is a duplicate. I accidently hit a link and lost my post (I think). So again:
I don't see how the guy got any work, period. As far as I am concerned, Terry Richardson should find himself lucky to wash dishes. His stuff is atrociously bad, and he doesn't always even hit the shutter button, instead, directing flunkies to do so. His non-style style is pretentious nonsense, what I call a standard art con. I suppose shooting while naked and putting his body in model's faces makes it "edgy" and therefore "cool."
Terry Richardson didn't do all this purely on his own, and couldn't have, he got plenty of buy in. From men and women. It is always an ecosystem. Many of his assistants and people he works with are women (such as Miley Cyrus).
In the Stanford Prison experiment by Philip Zimbardo students as guards turned creatively cruel. More disturbing are the people who facilitated the cruelty and went right along with the roles. Same with Richardson.

He's got enough dough. He should just retire and shoot for fun.

Goodmeme: Looks like a Billingham bag - but ugly and inferior rather than classic and timeless.

Using same old 20 year old backpack here with $40-50 inserts. Holds all my gear.
Exterior all beat to crap and people have never even glanced my way when walking through the hood.

Buying bling makes you a target

Liorr: Almost there Canon.
FHD SLOWMO 120P
4K video
an extra dial
mic & headphone jack
500$ less
and I am sold.
May guess Panasonic will issue just that in the upcoming year and Canon well maybe in 3 more years unfortunately.
Got to hand it to Canon for the builtin lens with the APSC sensor - I am one of those enthusiastic photographers who buys the kit lens and don't change lenses - so fix lens for me is great !

Cut by another 500 and add 5 axis ibis and we can start talking canon. Otherwise you lose money until this goes on fire sale
