In reply to:

Retzius: So other than build quality and EVF it seems to be behind the competition in almost every parameter.

Knock down the price to 599 and we can tallk

In reply to:

justmeMN: Canon's 4,000,000 ISO movie camera is an actual shipping product, not just a prototype.

Yup, they need to put their tech in more affordable bodies.

In reply to:

marc petzold: From a technical aspect, very uninteresting camera, but it'll for sure work as womens handbag camera, or selfie cam....but without EVF....

Too expensive. At this price they need to start putting in FF sensors. Or at least 1.6x. No buy.

In reply to:

Pho Tography: I think their time is up. Too much competition and too many people who bought their cameras now have it in their drawers.

Not too many of us jump out of planes or fly thru canyons on a jetpack.

If they want to survive, they need to make a cam with a normal non fisheye lens so moms can wear it for kids parties, or family activities. Otherwise, GP is dead, and they will be in a year.

They need to put in 5 axis ibis. That is why. Canon will go next unless they heed this sage advice

In reply to:

Mark Turney: Now that Verizon owns Flickr, I anticipate that it will eventually be rolles into a bundled app with their phone service only. I'm sure that's what their thinking was when they bought it. The bean counters always have a financial reason.

That sux. I liked flickr

I hope flickr stays open. But if not, will need to find another service to roll over to.

Dr_Jon: It would also be interesting to see how much less it is in 1080p if you ever get a sec? But many thanks, it's just what I asked for (although may just be coincidence of course). Pity you're not still in London, you could try my patented (err,-ish) moire/aliasing test...

Global sensor and EVF/OVF combo.
Yup.
Canon, ya just need to do the right thing.
You had one job...

mosswings: Well, they're interesting, and at least you can open up both sides all the way for whichever shoulder you prefer to swing the bag off of. But...

This is a very similar idea to a ThinkTankPhoto Trifecta, just larger, and more hip.

The 20L I can see being useful in an urban setting. But a 30 L bag without some form of a waist belt? That's gonna hurt, and quick. I would not be using this bag on a wilderness hike as the campaign page shows.

Obviously designed for a buff 20-something.

Oh, gee, that's what all the designers there are...

Needs... Zipper...

Sweet looking bags, but I don't know about those mag lock tops. Seems like any number of enterprising thieves could just run by, flip the top and make off with your cam equipment. I've always preferred sturdy jumbo zippers to make sure your stuff is totally secure.

Nice and hip but I'll probably be sticking with lowepro

mcshan: Nothing worse than sitting next to some fool at a concert holding up their cell phone for half the show.

That's when you make your point by standing on stilts in front of him. It's become a society of me-first/one-up-man-ship.

I will most likely skip my next car purchase to get this "game-changer." NOT!

In reply to:

ZurichPhoto: I noticed the top control dial does not include (P), a picture of a mountain, a leaf, or a silhouette of a person, and yet somehow it's over $10K :)

Love this. It may very well be my entry point into medium format. Can't wait to see the roll-out in July.

And thank you, Hasselblad, for not announcing an extension of the Lunar line. For that, we are all grateful.

But I'm just over the moon with this annoucement!

In reply to:

OmegaLimit: What software did you use for processing the raw images from the pixel shift? The Camera Store TV noticed that Lightroom has the color artifacts, but the Pentax/Ricoh software is able to eliminate the color artifacts.

I knew it. Flash in the pan!

Time for Canon to get real and put this in the 5dx with 5 axis ibis
