So you have Sony and Godox? 😊

racin06: Canon and Nikon (if Nikon actually produces FF or APS-C mirrorless cameras) may never catch up to Fujifilm (notice I didn't mention Sony?). Game probably already over for Canikon.

Nope

KW Phua: I believe making a good mirror is more challenging then mirrorless. Higher accuracy and robust mechanism require to build. No more advantages to go further for mirror.
When MP go higher, how to reduce mirror vibration is getting harder. I thing Canon know that is time to switch to MIRRORLESS. Just need to get powerful and lesser noice chip and processor to optimise the AF and IQ. If Canon hold on to their good built quality and reliability, they should be able to gain back the market share.

Of course they don’t have mirrorless market share. You can’t have market share with limited product. They have market share with DSLR’s because they have the product along with stellar lenses. They haven’t played the mirrorless game yet, just hang on! 😊

On article RIP Canon's Chuck Westfall, 1952-2018 (71 comments in total)

I did not know Chuck but I am happy to see that the photography industry is recognizing his passing. It says a lot about this person and photographer. RIP Chuck.

evilmagicnut: Increases the chance we'll see a D760 with D850 AF. If Nikon can mitigate mirror-slap / VR problems in a D750 update, I'd still stick with Nikon.

1. Video isn't as important to me
2. Nikon ergonomics (yes Sony controls are there but they're awkward)
3. Sony support / QC still lagging (in my experience)

I'm willing to wager Nikon isn't playing the crippled camera game anymore. Canon on the other hand...

Don't be fooled, Canon is on board also. Just need to wait a little longer.

entoman: If I had all my lovely Canon gear stolen, and had to start all over again, I often ask myself whether I'd stay with Canon, or switch to another brand. From my point of view, and my genres of photography (wildlife, macro, landscape) it's still very much a 3 horse race between Nikon, Sony and Canon.

I honestly don't know which of these systems I'd choose. Each has advantages for me and each has disadvantages. But if I was really pushed into a decison right at this moment I'd probably go for a combo of Nikon D500 and D850 bodies.

Canon will catch up with these and bring out equal or possibly superior models this year or next year. Meanwhile Sony just keeps pumping out cameras that get better at each iteration, in terms of specification and performance. Unfortunately the ergonomics just don't appeal to me. When Sony produce a camera that handles as intuitively and comfortably as a Canon or Nikon, that's when I'll buy.

Agree. "Canon will catch up with these and bring out equal or possibly superior models this year or next year." I've been shooting Canon for over 35 years and at my age will no doubt stay with them and not play "patty cake" jumping back and forth. Only other brand I used was Hasselblad when I shot Medium Format.

Just a comment on the “free” app Focos. It is free for very basic functions. The app allows you to upgrade to a pro version after a 2 hour free trial then choosing anywhere from a monthly rate of .99 to 1 yr $5.99 to lifetime $9.99.

It would be nice to own a couple of these for the compatibility with my B1 kit but I just can't rationalize the price for my needs. I"ll continue using my 600 ex-rt's for now. I will now be looking at other options for less money even though Profoto makes excellent products. I am well invested in Profoto OCF accessories but oh well!

Compatible with my B1's, yes but too much money for speedlights. Just make the B1's compatible with my Canon 600 ex-rt's without using pocket wizards which I don't want to buy either.

Darn, got rid of my slide projector but still have some medium format film!

So does that mean the number of pro photographers are decreasing also?

I shot my nephew's outdoor wedding with it in 2010 in the evening with a 430Ex flash and 3 lenses. Nothing compared to the 1Dx and 5Dmiii I have now but was sure a darn good camera and did a nice job. I still have it sitting on my collection shelf.
Thanks for the nice read and nostalgia.

cpharm86: Although very impressive I will stick to my B1 kit since I don't shoot in a studio. Most of my use is outdoors or where 120v is not readily available. Downside to the B1 is not having the AC option should it be needed but still a great light system.

Maybe B1A, that sounds good. 😀

They already have a B2.

endofoto: Nikon D7200 is much better than both Nikon D5 and Canon 1DX MII, no need to upgrade to full frame.

Yea, it's a shame that many pros don't realize that and buy such a substandard camera as the 1dx and 1dxii. They should listen to what you are telling them and what is in front of their eyes.
I really like mine though.
