Stig Nygaard: People in this comment thread are much more clever than Canon...

@mikegt so, now you are just shifting the goalposts. To a position that is still indefensible, but why would you need to defend it if you can always shift the goalposts again, right?

@mikegt and what makes you think that it's something different from what others do?

Any reason for other Japanese companies to refrain from profit-making measures that Canon, as you claim, may employ?

In particular, what about the same setting on Sony A1? Is there an excuse for having this setting on a $6,500 camera?

MikeRan: Perhaps Canon should patent a lower power sensor that doesn’t need to be liquid cooled…

And which models can you mention? Because even Sony FX3, which is only a 4K camera, has a fan.

And who exactly of them doesn't use a fan in their 8K video cameras?

DPAF doubles the number of photodiodes per sensor with the same (final) resolution and almost doubles the amount of required processing. Why wouldn't it increase the sensor's power consumption?

And who are those "others", anyway?

One without DPAF?

So, how do the DPR "R5 overheating" experts suggest to deal with the [Auto Power Off Temp.: Standard/High] setting from the 1.6.0 firmware? Keep it at "Standard" to not spoil their narrative?

Hobbytake2: I use my laptop as a laptop, I plug in only when it’s too low to work with and that is at the end of the day. Yeah, it’s a mac. It’s not stated whether the tests are run on battery or plugged in and of course you wouldn’t because this sounds like a pc versus mac and we can’t have that crush the pc scores now could we? SMH.

@aristogeiton: Why do you think I would need to hide them in my backpack? They are not required to be *personal*, you know. They are also much cheaper than my laptops.

@aristogeiton then I would need a much bigger backpack to carry it. Thanks, but no thanks.

I practically never use any of my laptops on my lap. I prefer a proper chair and a proper desk, which usually come with a proper power outlet as well.

Greg Ohio: The requirement that Remote ID provide the location of the operator places them in danger. A criminal intending to hide their activity could use that feature to eliminate potential witnesses. So could corrupt police.

The DOJ and FAA don't have the ability to protect pilots, even if they had the inclination.

It's a deal-breaker for me.

@Greg Ohio why would they be "careful to ensure there are no witnesses on the ground" if in your scenario they would be able to kill any witness they want?

And why wouldn't they ensure that "there are no drones nearby" using the same app?

Mlumiere: I would have preferred a review of the R7 with text and photo, not video! When will you review the Canon R3?

I wonder if replies like "There will be a video review too" are ever given such high scores.

In reply to:

Mlumiere: I, and the majority of birders who shoot wildlife with the 7D or 7D mk2, have used and still use the long focal lengths like 400 f2.8, 500 f4 and up... Whether they are EF or RF!
I think the target buyer who bought or will buy the R7 will be for wildlife photography and with the very large selection of long focal length, inexpensive RF lenses like the 600mm and 800mm, it's a no brainer!
The 800mm becomes a 1280mm f11. Canon EF long lenses work very well with all R cameras. I have never used an EF-S lens on my 7Ds, and it will be the same with the R7.

@Mike Yorkshire, you are getting more pixels on the same subject. Whether it leads to a better resolution is yet to be seen (or at least calculated), as the resolution there becomes heavily diffraction-limited.

In reply to:

iso rivolta: So why not the new Canon RF 400mm F2.8L IS USM? Is focus-by-wire less stable than mechanical manual focus at infinity?

Focus-by-wire requires the wire.

tpani: There is no AI here.
All of the "artificial intelligence" in image processing is really "statistical image processing".
"Intelligence" is about things like thinking, understanding, reasoning, and there is none of that in any of the alleged "AI" software for tinkering with images and video.
Artificial neural networks is far from thinking and intelligence. It is possible that they will on some day do that, but today, no.
Statistics is good, and it is great that many nice things can be done by utilizing statistical methods. But the word "statistical" will not sell and sounds boring, so that's why it is important to say that there is a electric brain or AI involved.

@PhilosoFox, I'd put it the other way around: in practice, "classical" and "non-classical" binary formalisms are used to try to model behavior that by its nature is Bayesian (thus, non-binary at least in its inference steps).

The natural intelligence as we know it doesn't think purely in "formalisms" unless is forced to do so, and then is quite bad at that, compared to modern computers anyway.

Still, one may claim that *some* humans do generate *new* logical formalisms, while there is no common knowledge of any *artificial* Bayesian network doing that in an *explicit* way *yet*... but I hope you can see how weak such a claim is.

Razor512: Based on the specs, it seems to be the internals of a $70 point and shoot camera, mounted to the gimbal that you typically find on those pan and tilt IP cameras such as the $50 amcrest IP cameras.

@Razor512 and your point is...?

For how much time would you personally bill your client to implement such a solution given the hardware you mentioned?

atamola: When I see this images I can't help but to think that the probability of intelligent life in other planets is 1.

@papajohnny the number "zero" is pulled out of your...

Try to give the confidence interval for this number, and you will see.

(besides, communication between intelligent life does not need to be bidirectional)
