On article Opinion: the Sony a7 III could be the new Nikon D750 (1097 comments in total)
In reply to:

Nikoncanonfan: We want a mirrorless with Canon or Nikon on the front. Hang on and try not to panic, it's coming

I try to make informed decisions so I'd by a Walmart camera any day of the week if it delivered my desired qualities at a favorable price point.
To each its own I guess.

Very strange.
If you want a mirrorless camera, but one now.
And if you don't need one, don't buy one.

What is this " I want a MLC of this or that brand..." ?

know your needs
choose the right combinations
know your tool's attributes
shoot to its attributes
choose smart

nice to get a tool that can "do it all"
but no such tool exists from any mfr

Finally, some pages down, there was an answer.

There's difference between scene modes and scene recognition.

monokultur: I bought this little cam last week as b-roll cam for mostly corporate video. Main cams are 5D IV. Although I get the complaints here - most of the haters will never do a living from video/photo and do complain about features not art. I never ever use log - I am not into Hollywood. Dialed down output (prolost flat) of my Canons is more than adequate for SELLING the final video. Yes Sony does offer more features. But - be honest: Do you really need them? Grade all your family or vacation videos? Whats the reason for that unnecessary and time consuming behavior? The highest production standards? What for? For kids and aunts and uncles hanging around in the backyard? Because its what? Future proof? Make better sure to always keep you digital videos playable so your kids can even view them at all in 30 years. Glad we have all those youtube talking heads who can't make a living from video either but have strong opinions on features sets that living without surely means suffering like hell.

OP,
sure you can argue that some features are not needed or used by some.

But if you get them AT NO EXTRA COST , then what's the problem??

If you don't need them, fine, but why buy something that costs as much as those having all those options?

In reply to:

24IS: "It's worth noting that the widest lens for the M50 is the 11-22mm F4-5.6, which is equivalent to 18-35mm, which may be a bit too telephoto for some landscape photographers. "

I'm not certain that I understand what the reviewer is saying here. This zoom lens' range is not telephoto as I understand the term. What I expect the reviewer is trying to say is that the zoom range, limited as it is, won't lend itself well to scenes where the photographer would want a wider angle of view than the 11mm widest angle will permit.

OP, your rephrasing of the sentence show that you've understood the original absolutely correct.
So the original worked, and was shorter.

What would you say a about a camera that recognizes subjects:
Focal length and focus distance that matches a head portrait?
- Set F=4 to get nose to ear sharp, balance EV for the main subject.

focus distance at infinity and bright upper part of the image?
So, this is a landscape, extend SS to max wrt to FL to maximise sharpness
and balance EV for lower half of image.

And adjustment for many other identifiable situations.

How would you feel about such a camera?

Aleks7: sure, we just need mirrorless that would match the DSLR performance, so instead of big words perhaps first deliver such camera and I'll happily follow ;)

"It's amazing to think that Sony's $2K camera (with no lens) is outselling Nikon's best-selling DSLR which is only selling at $396.95 (with lens)! "

This is why all makers are or will be going for mirrorless systems.

Georgeee: 1000th comments. Canon is quite late, behind Sony. But its always good to get started. Looking forward to it

Why, there are plenty of good options out there already.

Sony have ( or did) for a long time support using Memorystick in their cameras.

Half empty glass types of people will see that as a try to do a lock in.
Half full glass types of people will see that it is of respect to customers they offers continued use for their technologies.
Pick your side.

TMHKR: "The reign of DSLR is almost over" - you can only shill this much author, DSLR is here to stay.

Of course DSLR's will be available long time from now.
As Hasselblad's and Pentax 645 are still available.

( Or Harley Davidsson's for that matter... )

Good question.
Where does it put some other offers out there where the only higher spec'ed number is the price?

lighthunter80: It makes only sense to release a full frame mirrorless camera with a new no-compromise mount that allows to build optimised lenses. Hanging on to the EF mount and creating an artificial distance to the sensor just for compatibility would be foolish.

Whatever they release, it will have an option to use current EF lenses and I am very sure it will be simply an adapter like EOS M cameras have it. That's a totally fine solution, being still able to use native glass, and I don't think it would even have any performance impact (AF speed, image quality etc).

I don't mind at all getting into mirrorless and use a native adapter. It would be just a tube with connectors to pass through the signals. No big deal.

Don't worry about the fact that the mechanics of each mount are totally different.
Or stuff like Nikon and Minolta using mechanical levers for aperture adjustment. Or that signalling is different on all.
And you missed Yashica, Chinon, Vectis and Contax to name a few.

@PhozoCozmos
"If too short
means an increased disparity between image projection distances
causes uneven brightness on sensor surface
where center is much brighter than edges/corners"

Nope, you can still design the lenses as if it had a longer flange distance.
The option to not do so, is not mandatory, it's an option.

"flexi-specialty-extensions"
You know that those are called adapters, right?

hypnotictortoise: Rumour has it that Canon filed a patent for a curved sensor. Now that will be interesting.

That'll be interesting.
Such a sensor in an MLC would mean that no existing lenses can be used.
Go Canon, go!

CarpentersEye: Can someone explain to me why an American company can't do this? Slave shop under age kids? What? Unfair trade? USA still to much red tape and taxes? Export fees? What? Asian mafia, LOL. What?

Who wants a change? Why must the Asian world rule camera systems? The whole idea of not restricting world trade (cross sales) is WORLD wide competition. Put up or shut up. Good is as good does and per value. Why can't the USA compete? We have smart engineers? What is the problem? Make some damn great sensors!

I was rephrasing the OP's:

"Can someone explain to me why an American company can't do this? Slave shop under age kids? What? Unfair trade? USA still to much red tape and taxes? Export fees? What? Asian mafia, LOL. What?"

And I didn't really grasp how a business about cutting edge technology could be based on under age kids.
"Unfair trade" sound like someone believes someones imaginary horror stories.

And to the question why this can't be done US.
Let's remember that most growth in Asia comes from EU/US businesses moving their production.
So if you want to blame someone, blame those.

Don't buy into the strange talk about being treated unfair by other countries.
There is a president in a big country spending most of his time blaming others.

Eleson: The proof is in the pudding.
but IF the can be competitive in this arena, it will provide a way forward for Canon who just can't source it's sensors from Sony and keep their face

Sorry for being unclear.
"just can't" does of course mean "doesn't want to" .

As long as companies are owned by investments funds, have president with short term incentives, and are required to produce positive results on a quarterly basis, companies will avoid undertake heavy investments for long term growth.

I'd be very interested in seeing any child labor to develop a competitive imaging sensor, or first class image processing software.
