Wow, Canon sells you a camera and then charges you to learn how to operate it.

Michiel953: Well, there you have it. A huge camera with a tiny sensor, capable of 25x zoom. For the tourists.

Thanks for clarifying the sensor size. The camera looks promising.

The new Nikon sensor is 1", so the Sony sensor is smaller?

And with the dynamic range of the old 5D. Just kidding. I wonder if any of their current L lenses can handle this sensor and are there any computers out there short of a Cray that won't choke on the RAW files.

Jon_Doh: Canon continues to fall farther behind the competition. There will come a point in time when they can no longer rely upon "it's the entire system that matters" and their lens line up. True, the 7D II is a great upgrade, but the 5D III is long in the tooth and over priced and the rest of their line up simply stinks.

Typical fanboy with blinders on.

TonyPapagallo: Whats happened to a replacement for my D3x ? I would like a 40 or 50mp sensor in a Pro body and NO video.
There are lots of professional lifestyle and fine art photographers who would buy this.

Canon 5D Mark III has the right specs for a camera of this class, but it is way over priced. Like others I would love to see the D610 sensor in a D810 or D700 body.

Aperture is dead.

On article Nikon issues service advisory on D600's dust issue (240 comments in total)

The problem returns after you've sent the camera in to Nikon for a cleaning. They need to man up and admit it's a problem and come up with a fix and issue a recall.

Several years ago if this type of thing happened you knew Nikon would step up to the plate and take care of the problem and their customer. What happened?

Jon_Doh: The 6D is a joke. It's too stripped down in features to be taken as a serious full frame camera. Canon needs to give us something we can really sink our teeth into. Something like the Nikon D600, but without the dust and oil splatter issues.

@Josh, that kind of thinking has never deterred Nikon from offering full featured cameras in their semi pro line. Canon has always taken the view that they need to strip their semi pro cameras down so as to preserve their pro market and it's why they're getting beat so badly in the market by Nikon.

The samples that are out on the web show useable pictures at ISO 3200. This camera packs a lot into a small convenient package. I'm considering picking one up and selling my heavy, bulky DSLR equipment.

On article Apple releases Aperture v3.3 with iPhoto integration (41 comments in total)
In reply to:

Roadtripper: I'm disappointed in Apple for making this update exclusive to OS 10.7.4. I like Snow Leopard, and yes, I DID try OS Lion for a while. I'm not a Lightroom 4 user, but I will check it out now. If Adobe stays compatible with older Apple OS's I may just switch.

I agree. Lion is buggy and a memory hog.

I've been loyal to Apple since 1986, but this was the last straw for me. I've dumped Aperture and moved on to Lightroom 4.

Great specs. I like them much better than the D4.

On article Canon EOS 5D Mark III hands-on preview and video (261 comments in total)

Great specs, but like the 1dx it's priced too high for its competition. At $2,700 it would own its market slot. But at $3,500 does Canon really think they're going to compete with the Nikon D800 that's $500 less and has 50% more megapixels?
