Jylppy: ESO M system needs urgently more native lenses ... And I don't think the additional EVF is a good idea.

4K? Well, I don't care, but I think it is time to add it.

Please don't get me wrong. I am a Canon fan and shoot Canon FF. I have plenty of EF lenses and Canon flashes and I am very interested of the EOS M system especially after superb EOS M5. I just hope Canon improves the native lens selection. I don't really care video since it is so much hassle to edit and takes lot of space.

LaurenceSvirchev: It is not 'mind-numbing numbers' but excessive ego and hubris that makes Mr. Cicala's difficult to read. The first three sentences of the roles of quantitative and qualitative sciences demonstrate a poor understanding of their respective roles in understanding what our eyes see. Example, Einstein played piano constantly while pondering the concepts that were revealed on his three papers in 1905 ('annus mirabilis') that changed the way society looks at the world. Use of rage-filled phrases like "setting my teeth on edge" are a wonderful way to fog an issue: no one really cares about Mr. Cicala's frustrations except perhaps the author himself.

@laura, I do enjoy his style. If he would ride dull scientific papers, no one would bother to read his blog. Please don't judge too hard.

On article Canon granted third most US patents in 2016 (145 comments in total)
In reply to:

joe6pack: I would hazard a guess that it is because some executives in Canon has the brilliant idea of "quantity > quality". They want to beef up their patent portfolio so they can increase their bargain power. Exactly how patent trolls are thinking.

I also have US & worldwide patent and I know exactly what you mean by low quality of patents and making those in huge numbers. Big companies build patent portfolios for protection of the business and to lower cross-licensing costs.

I just can't understand the amount of Canon-hate here. Every single post mentioning Canon attracts huge amounts of competitor-fanboy flame. If one is happy with Oly or Sony or Fuji or whatever, just enjoy it. Canon makes fantastic cameras with superb user interfaces and many people buy and like those. Don't assume every one disagreeing with you is an idiot. And I mean fanboys in general, not you Joe.

Have you went through their patent filings to make such a conclusion? It must have been lot of work.

DavidsfotosDotCom: Does it have Nokia's off line Navigation app?

Here's POI search used to be ridiculously bad, but it has come long way since that. I remember searching "Carrefour" while traveling in France and getting the "nearest" fix to ... Haiti! There is a town called "Carrefour" in Haiti. That was those "OMG?" moments. But it is better now. Here's offile maps are great when traveling if you don't have big local / roaming data plan to spend.

Here WeGo is actually quite good nowadays. There is significant improvement since few years back. Recommended.

You mean no OVF? This is that mirrorless stuff, you know . But it has bigger display than Canon 1DX.

@androole, there are plenty of people who don't care about video features, but shoot just photos. I get this Pana is for video-focused folks, but as still camera it is quite high-priced compared what you get.

And to the MF comments, as I clearly said, a camera choice is always a compromise over multiple parameter, but many of the parameters where m43 excels (compactness, price, IQ @price) are not evident in this camera concerning still photography. Market trends in still photography don't favor m43, but systems with larger sensors (Sony, Fuji, Canon, Nikon, and even MF players).

In reply to:

Jylppy: USD 2000 !!! Ridiculously expensive m43-camera. Way overpriced. And weights roughly the same as Full frame Canon 6D camera. So what was all the talk about "carrying bulk"?

@Sigma82: Thanks for reminding, it has small sensor too :-D

I mean it is a OK camera and the ergonomics "look" good thanks to increased size of the body & layout, but if one's focus is in still photos, there are plenty of alternatives offering better bang for buck at $2k price point.

And if the m43 body size is increased to match APS-C MILCs bodies or even DSLRs, what's the point of suffering smaller sensor, higher noise, lower resolution lenses and limited bokeh? Fanboys must love, of course, but for me Sony or Fuji (once they abandon X-Trans crap) MILC are better _systems_ considering the fundamental _system_ limitations. Every system has their sweet-spots, but it seems market sweet-spot is moving beyond m43.

Still haven't upgraded even into 4K, but 3K in laptop feels an overkill, especially when Windows and apps are not 100% adapted to high-DPI displays.

Yeah, the sensor size is mostly a measure of camera's image quality. But to be honest, m43 are really good too unless you are not into wide-aperture bokeh images and can relax low-light-high-ISO IQ requirements few stops. Camera choice is always a compromise between multiple factors - you can't get them all (in one camera).

jaykumarr: Could someone please help me:
What are the top features that Magic Lantern provide that are absent/incomplete in
(1) Latest consumer level Nikon SLRs
(2) Latest consumer level Canon SLRs
Are those missing features present in their remote controllers?

And oh, older ML builds included an Auto ISO that works as it should, but that seems to be gone in the latest builds that have ETTR instead. Modern cameras do have proper Auto ISO, Canon 5DII doesn't...

How about:
- Automated focus stacks for macro
- Intervalometer (highly customizable)
- Motion detect trigger
- Trap focus trigger
- Image voice tags
- Automatic Preview sharpness analysis
- Highly customizable Auto Exposure Bracketing
- Automatic AEB based on image analysis
- Dual ISO

Plus plenty of video features. I shoot stills only.

If you are truly interested and not intending to indirectly belittle ML, why don't you go check their web pages? http://www.magiclantern.fm/

Aroart: Why would you want to play Dungeons n Dragons on your camera..

I have used MagicLantern for years without a single problem. It is super good piece of software and adds massive amount of features not available in any consumer cameras.
