ttran88: Suddenly DR isn't over rated in Canon land.

With every new improvement, people quickly tell themselves they couldn't have lived without it, even though they did.

Paul B Jones: Isn't anyone concerned about the implications of throwing thousands of professional Canon complainers out of work?

Now there are just two things Canon needs to do to catch up with Sony. (1) Introduce a new camera every 90 days and (2) sell fewer cameras. Seriously, this looks like a decent improvement and even more so in a FF sensor.

For a minute I thought these were Swiss lenses.

dlb41: Pretty soon, the photographer will aim the camera in the general direction of the subject, and Adobe programmers will take care of producing a photograph.

Well, not exactly. People ask for *useful* features, which is not quite the same as solutions that lack problems. I don't recall anybody asking for the Cloud, but I guess somebody must have.

Maybe they should sell these in kit form.

ManInTime: Dont think i have ever seen such an average cameras being pushed and pushed again and again to the main page for no good reason. some heavy marketing job is being done here.

I ask myself, in 5 years, will we look back and say "Now, this camera was a game changer" or "this has become a cult camera, and with good reason." Make that 2 years.

At last they've fixed the boundary warp problem when using metadata from a Parrot Bebob Drone device. Whatever this is, I'm sure its essential.

Entropy512: As far as its predecessor living on - keep in mind this isn't unusual for Sony.
A7, A7R, and A7S are still all on the market well after II versions were launched
A5000 remains on the market long after A5100 launch

When you introduce new models every year there will be lots of oldies on the shelves. Eventually, people who are just camera users and not fans buy last year's model or figure the current one will drop in price soon enough.

raztec: Pardon my ignorance, but what can these cameras and lens combination do that a Nikon D810 with a pro lens can't for 1/4 the price?

"Experts" used to post on DPR that the AA blur filter was a necessity (I forget the scientific reason but it wasn't moire) and now most high end cameras don't have AA filters.

On article Affinity Photo coming to Windows (100 comments in total)

This probably won't affect Adobe much since most people who have a choice don't use Windows. But its a great product, and when Affinty completes their version of InDesign we may finally be able to say goodbye to Adobe and software subscriptions.

In reply to:

Everythingis1: It's a shame they aren't using a Full Frame Sensor considering its best suited for 28-85mm lenses. The camera and lenses would probably nearly nearly the exact same size. When I compare it to the A7 in the studio scene is shows excellent noise patterns, but the contrast and detail on the cards make me yearn for a FF Fugifilm.

It's already too large. The whole idea of a rangefinder camera is fast focusing with tiny lenses. This is an excellent camera with large, heavy lenses, for a non-full frame camera.

vesa1tahti: I'll keep my D7200 with it's 10 lenses. Nikon is winner, Fuji takes the second place.

Carrying 10 lenses sounds like fun.

12 elements in a shifting mount for $500 is pretty impressive. Too bad its not a better lens.

steelhead3: This definitely a lens calling for a high tech EVF camera even if it is so low tech like many Zeiss lenses.

No worries, it's obvious.

In reply to:

AlanG: "and the 28mm lens is well corrected to avoid tons of distortion at the edges."

I find when shooting people with wide angle lenses it is better to have barrel distortion if people are near to the edges or corners of the frame. DXO actually has a feature where you can apply that and it is why I don't always correct the distortion from my Sony 16-50.

It's one of the few unique things that DxO software does well, since "normal" correction of a 24mm lens will make people near the edges look pretty unattractive. Probably better not to use a 24mm in this situation but if it happens, DxO correction is better than the alternatives.

steelhead3: Canon is the Kodak of the 21st century

Canon is more like Toyota. They sell a ton of stuff, most of it is not very exciting and for some unknown reason, that really upsets some people.

In reply to:

Mayl: I've summed up the comments, so you don't have to read them:

1. Regular people complaining of recycling old tech
2. Canon fanboys defending canon

"Regular people" (the non-Digilloyds of the world) are not concerned with absolute cutting edge technology. They're not going to compare DxO scores. They want something inexpensive, reliable and better than a phone.

With the usual discounting, this camera will be cheaper than a Leica lens hood and that's what will appeal to regular people.

Andrew ATM216: It is sad indeed for canon to come out with this type of camera in 2016....this will indeed hurt their reputation....sometimes i wonder if the canon ceos really care.....im not surprised by the large number of photographers jumping ship-either to fujifilm or sony....

I've been a canon shooter for over 20 yrs....and yes, im awaiting for the fujifilm xt2 and i may also say, "bye bye canon".

People buying this camera, and there will probably be a lot, will not be aware of, or interested in anybody's reputation. As the press release implies, its better than a cell phone.

Ben Stonewall: Shamsung - here today, gone tomorrow, gadget manufacturer.
Last year cameras, this year talking refrigerators, next year talking toasters.

Will the talking toaster speak Chinese? Might be a good way to learn "it's burning" in a foreign language.

What I really want is a cell phone that makes toast. It doesn't have to be as good as a stand alone toaster; all that matters is that they can do it.
