LoneTree1: Anyone who thinks what China does is reciprocated by American firms is naive. Chinese have stolen and bought and shuttered American tech firms in order to get intellectual property. And all with the help of the Chinese government. If an American company wants to do business is China (lopsided trade agreements) they have to basically hand-over the details of all their products, they are ripe for theft.

sadly, China CCP donates to various political parties around the world.
lots of lobbying going on in Washington.

Dave Oddie: "Canon is continuing its long tradition of putting image stabilization into selected lenses, not its cameras. The normally stated logic is sound - better tailor an I.S. system for the specific demands of a particular lens than go with a 'one size fits all' in-body system which inevitably adds bulk to the camera.

It's a fair argument....."

Surely it's NOT a fair argument because lenses for cameras with in-body stabilization communicate their focal length back to the camera so it can adapt accordingly. Sony cameras have done this for years long before they came out with the E mount.

In any case we are now seeing in-lens and in-body stabilization systems being combined by both Panasonic and Sony taking stabilization technology a stage further.

Canon is lagging behind here especially when they introduce lenses with no IS at all.

by the way, IBIS is still relatively new compare to the mature IS. It is only a matter of time when IBIS will make IS obsolete.

similarly, on a parallel front, the mirrorless will soon make the DLSR mirror obsolete.

similarly, on another parallel front, the electronic shutters would make mechanical shutters obsolete.

@PhotoMatter> why the IBIS scientific exper with Nikon? They Z system is so new, there's only 4 lenses in the Z line. Sony on the other hand has plenty to choose from for the EF/E mount.

@PhotoMatter> you cannot deny IBIS would cut Canon's revenue from lens sales.
and we have yet to see where IBIS will be headed in the future.

The Fat Fish: It's really sad to see the company who pioneered DSLR video abandon those users with such disregard.

The 5DIV was the first sign with it's crippled 4K with 1.74x crop, MJPEG codec and lack of C-LOG. They also prevented a 4K HDMI output offering the weakest of excuses.

The M5 was next as the A6300 at the time had 4K.

Canon then followed with the 6DII which didn't have 4K at all and even removed the ALL-I option from 1080p. That said video was just one issue here.

Next up was the M50 with it's 1.6x crop on an already 1.6x crop sensor. Just to show they really didn't care they also removed DPAF in 4K.

Now we see the EOS R making the same steps as the 2 year old 5DIV.

I'm just glad companies like Fuji are doing the opposite.

sounds like Canon needs help from AMD to help re-design their Digic processor.

Canon wanted to charged more $$ for the IS grade lenses versus the non-IS.
If Canon makes a camera body with IBIS, people would not be buying any more IS lenses.

On article The Nikon Z system: What we think, where it should go (921 comments in total)
In reply to:

xchric: I know the whole dpreview crews are Nikon fans, except the two new Canadian, I like them. You guys should be able to quickly tell that the Z series AF performance lag behind D5 and D850. Just admit that it sucks, feel free to add that just the preproduction model sucks But we really don't need that Barney guy to tell us that he can adapt to it. We are in 2018 and you are telling us that we should adapt to a camera with crap AF? You shouldn't even highlight his opinion. This is so bias. Mirrorless focus system has so much dependency on the censor technology and Nikon is way behind Sony and Canon. It is not something that better ergonomic, better LCD and weather seal can make up for it. Really disappointed see all the Z6, Z7 hype from dpreview Nikon fan boys and load of emotional bias.

looking forward to the next Sony mirrorless along with the Sigma offerings for FE/E mount.

Nikon is a bit late in the game... unless they can beat Microsoft or Sony to the next generation "Curved" sensor technology.

How about technology to removal aliasing and moire? Such as pixel shift?

On article Does sensor size still make a difference? (1066 comments in total)

It's like comparing earbuds $100 IEMs versus > $1000 IEMs. Most earbuds in the range of $100 are quite good with decent dynamic range. So what do you gain from going over that price threshold? If you know what to look for, you can probably hear the subtle difference. But most ppl probably would not be able to tell any difference.

Nano_Shutter: no optical stabilization or VC?
the RXD can only use on the newer Sony models with the IBIS?

when you use a lens that has OSS built into it, the IBIS and OSS work together so you still get 5 AXIS of correction.
and you have the option to disable one or the other in camera menu.

so why not put VC/OSS into the lens?

Langusta: Does he say "C-MOS" or "SEE-MOST"?

It's strange to hear C-MO-SS (C-MOST), instead of C-MOS. The presenter probably is not an Engineer.

cityboy: Am I the only person who doesn't care about the video capabilities of my DSLR? I would much prefer that the expense of adding video be redirected to still camera features I would actually use.

theoretically speaking video is just moving stills

nofumble: "Increased competition ALLOWED us to LEVEL UP "

What they really meant was "Increased competition ALLOWED us to COPY them" instead of developing anything new.

Pixel shift is the next tech to look forward to. Virtually no alias in the final image.

In reply to:

jdonalds: I see Canon as the giant of the camera world. But they are being challenged by other manufacturers and Canon has been slow to keep up. The mirrorless camera market is now flooded with good examples that are quite worthy DSLR replacements for almost all factors including image quality, speed, etc. There are basic advantages to mirrorless and I fully believe mirrorless will become the standard rather soon.

It is possible for Canon to catch up, and surpass the competition in this area. But the other manufacturers are not standing still so I don't expect Canon to win this game soon, if ever.

stopped buying EF lenses already. waiting for the mature mirror-less mount.

At some point, it's not simply "take less of this to get more of that". Technology integrates all into one. To have one means to also getting the other. That's the future.

Google Lens is a serious breach of privacy! It is worst than Facebook face recognition tagging. This software Google developed is basically an extension of FBI to spy on the public.

Is there a switch to allow user to easily turn this Ult Performance mode ON & OFF?

Link | Posted on Feb 18, 2018 at 18:15 UTC as 13th comment | 1 reply

16-bits ADC these days can easily do 200-KSPS. So does that mean we'll start seeing cameras shutter speeds in the range of 1/500,000th ??

In reply to:

Nano_Shutter: Will you guys do a review of the LG V30 camera?

Well LG V30 lets you capture RAW images, and shoot in manual mode. This comes free with the default LG camera app. The Pixel2 needs to download 3rd party apps for all that extra features.

Also with RAW, the water color effect is non-issue.

And I believe the Pixel2 doesn't have Cine-log format for videos.

And LG V30 having that extra wide angle is very handy.
