GTX 1050-60? That's not cutting edge.

Thomas Kachadurian: Here's the problem. That's not a wedding. Put on a suit, add about 30 people watching you, Make it 95 degrees outside and humid, Get the bride's grandfather off to the side just waiting to step in front of you with his new iPhone, make sure the DJ doesn't wait for you to give her the signal, then have a real bride throw an actual bunch of flowers, and get back to me on how well continuous shooting works for getting the bouquet.

Takeaway: don't hire hipsters to shoot a wedding.

I was wondering where was the usual hipster bashing that I've come to expect here!

Great, we finally know what they were planning, can someone feed that skinny girl now?

It's better to blue screen it and later add whatever background you like.
Will it look Photoshopped? Depends on your editing skills.
On the other hand, these backgrounds already looked like someone added them in post so there's that.

Whoa. A classic. Nice vintage soft-focus effect too. Don't see what's the problem here. /s

Jeez, the whole planet is a giant trash can.

BaldCol: and in other news Apple are making a mobile phone the size of a house brick and cassette tapes are making a comeback.

It's the past... leave it there.

In the future you can use whatever tech you want, not just the tech from the future.

Let's not forget the real winners here: lawyers.

fPrime: We could all learn a thing or two about how open-minded cinematographers are as they approach the topic of modern versus vintage lenses:

4:30 - Stephen Gelb: [with anamorphic lenses] we see more separation between background and foreground, you get that "3D look."

8:30 - Mark LaFleur: If you didn't know what lens you were looking at but just looked at distortion charts you'd say - "Is this a trick lens?", "What's wrong with it?", "Is it broken?", "Nothing on the edges is in focus." But then you look at it in the real world and it's completely different.

I wish we were as open-minded on DPR as they are. We also have people truly interested in lens character and rendering, which are noble and artistic objectives, yet they seem to be consistently ridiculed, savaged, and fought by those who can only understand distortion chart testing.

True, there are some offerings from lens makers that get ridiculed here from time to time, but I don't think it's because the specific rendering they produce.
For me the problem is that such rendering is often the result of using old and way cheaper optical formulas and yet you see these companies requesting thousands of dollars for a product that it's just no so expensive to make.

steelhead3: Does Canon have eye focus for critical sharpness for this portrait lens?

Nope

PWPhotography: Congrats to Canon, not only make for Canon but for Sony system as well :-)

Ironically Canon TS-E lenses actually are much easier to use on Sony A7/A9 series due to EVF, much easier for precise MF, full-time liveview, focus peaking (much easier for Tilt function) and WYSIWYG exposure as well as IBIS to gain a few stops in hand-held under dim light, and you don't need to leave eye from EVF. On Canon DSLRs you'd need to use back LCD for precise focus (magnification) and accurate exposure when T/E out.

Rear LCD on any modern camera is good enough for precise focusing of any TS lens, even if you don't have focus peaking. It's not like people are shooting race cars with these lenses.

The Earth is flat!

That would be some eclipse to watch, a flat line of shadow covering 10% of the sun, making it look like a pill.

They don't really care where you use the lenses, as long as you buy them. The more compatible it is, the more they sell.
As of this moment they have the biggest TS line: 17, 24, 50, 90, 135

Thanks!

Mateus1: D850 saves "them as JPEGs" only? Why they limited it to only JPEGs? Not possible as TIFFs too?

My guess is that you can do the jpeg if you want to have a positive in-camera, but there's nothing stopping you from shooting RAW and invert the files yourself after.

Come on Canon do something.

Keep making noise guys! There's always the chance they have someone reading comments on DPR. LOL

My sigma lenses are screaming to be sent to service to change them to Nikon mount.

Savage list of specs, truly a ground shaking camera. I would have loved to see them ditch the top lcd for a e-ink type of display, like the Fuji GFX. Those old Casio looking screens are starting to look quite dated.

Ernest M Aquilio: This is exactly the powerhouse that Nikon needed to have a quite formidable line up 7500/500/750/850/D5, excellent! The DSLR is not going anywhere.

You can pack how small you want. But no tiny mirrorless will give you the image quality that this beast will deliver, which of course, it's not something that everyone needs.
