left eye: What it this all about in one clear sentence?
Yes many photographers publish images 'publicly' and they of course own the copyright. If someone else then shares this image on a website that copyright is null and void?? Is this what this news item is saying, or what is the bombshell?

I disagree on that. You might allow on certain conditions. Like for example non-commercial use only.

> This is now (apparently) all changing

I don't think anything is changing. IG is just clarifying how their terms are to be interpreted.
But yes, a lot of people has believed they could share anything without permission from photographer/copyright-holder.

DenImage: Well there's another reason not to post your images on social media websites. You just don't know who owns your images when you do. Unless of course, you contract a lawyer to decipher all the legal fine print and have a magistrate make a judgment in an expensive civil case 😏

Den

What do you mean? I'm not a fan of IG, neither do I plan to be active on it. But a lot of people have been embedding other peoples photos from IG on their own or other sites, believing they could do so without permission from the photographer. Now Instagram is stating you need the photographer's (/copyright holder's) permission to do so.

I say this just made IG a bit less bad....

If you like to allow people to share your IG photos, you can always write they can do so (F.ex. using a creative Commons license). So this allows the photographer to decide how it should be.

Stig Nygaard: It looks very interesting to me. I have a 1st gen. Mavic Pro. The Air 2 is smaller and lighter, but still it has larger sensor, more wideangle (I like that), higher video bitrate, h.265, longer flight time, more obstacle sensors. Like the Mavic Pro it also has raw/dng support, and in general most specs looks just as good as the Mavic Pro.

Hmm, except I think it is a fixed focus camera on Air 2? Probably fine for video, but is it good enough for photography? Maybe no problem? I don't think it has as many camera control options as the Mavic Pro has either? Looks like it has bracketing, but I don't think it has a simple +/- EV bias adjustment or complete manual controls? Gimbal is motorized instead of Pro's mechanical. I don't know if that is good or bad? Would probably miss the extra screen on Pro's controller too. Anyone knows what the difference is between Pro's DJI Go 4 app and the DJI Fly app for the Air 2?

@JackM, yes my Pro 1 is great (especially considering its size) for photography. And as I said, Air 2 has a larger 1/2" sensor, so looks very promising on paper. But I got nervous about the fixed focus lens (Haven't done the math. It has a wider lens, but it also has a larger sensor). And normally when doing photography on Pro 1 I use either the EV Bias control or manual settings. But Air 2 seems to lack both these. That's what I'm concerned about.
- And now also the folded size, which I just discovered is actually thicker than my Pro 1. That's probably the nail in coffin for me :-(

Hmm folded Air 2 is actually thicker than my Mavic Pro. That's a major disadvantage for transportation in the already stuffed camera bag :-(

In reply to:

Gundamit: Anyone care to guess if/when Canon's IBIS will show up in a cheaper RP like body?

How cheap? The R6 will probably be more expensive than RP, but less than R5. R6 might hit the streets before R5 (At least that is what rumors predict).

In reply to:

DaddyG: Canon are not getting the ROI on RF system. And finally waking up to the fact that they are bleeding customers.
So finally Canon have realised that they will need to throw the kitchen sink at the next RF camera. And announce it well in advance to prevent more lost customers.
IMO.

I don't know if Canon deliberately has been playing a long game and maybe "skipped a generation" of their semiconductor technology to jump ahead of competition later, or if they just had down-prioritized or miscalculated needed technology investment for mirrorless in a period. But for sure to make a camera spec'ed like the R5 possible, they must have been working on the technology for this in years. And a fun fact is that Canon almost 1,5 year ago actually gave a hint of this camera coming...

When a Canon representative in an interview with Imaging Resource, was asked "How important will the video workflow be in that product line", the answer included:

> Video will play a huge role in the EOS R System for
> sure. For example, an 8K video capable camera is
> already in our EOS R-series roadmap.

@Orim_70, I'm upset? I just say if you have a better tool for you, use that. If your link is to prove you can take great shot with smartphones, it wasn't needed. I would never deny that.

dougorama: Please leak arrival date

@thx1138,

> Canon stated explicitly the R5 is due for release before the Tokyo Olympics

Are you sure? I've heard that "before Olympics" mentioned too, but only from news sources which looked like making that conclusion from the July rumor.

jonby: I think most would have been happier with 4K done well and a lower price tag. But Canon will be Canon.

@jonby, Canon will also be releasing a 20megapixels R6.
No it is not official, but from same sources that first told us about R5.
Still looks high spec, so wont be cheap. But definitely cheaper than R5. And with 20megapixels you can be sure it wont do 8K video :-)

In reply to:

There has never been a release data mentioned by Canon (except "this year"), but the "original rumor" which predicted both the basic specs and the early announcement, said it will be shipping in July. But that was before Corona...

Latest rumors says Canon is undecided on if they are going to make a low quantity release in July, or wait to the autumn:

SteveAnderson: DPR needs to show us the 'Hands-On' article soon. Otherwise they were just copy/pasting that rumour.

Which is fine, but we wouldnt be able to trust them like we did before when they post news/rumours like that.

@SteveAnderson, this is not a rumor. It is posted on several Canon sites around the World.

In reply to:

Fotoni: About 36 MP does not mean good quality for 8K because displays actually have pixels for each primary colors, but over 99% of consumer level camera pixels have 50% green, 25% red and 25% blue. This means that 8K displays have about 106 MP vs camera 36 MP. You can do the math, how much fake interpolated color there will be. That is why healthy over-resolution is needed to get more color data for downsizing. Very good 4K video cameras have at least double resolution available for downsizing. This would mean that 8K camera needs about 72 MP for good quality 8K video. Good luck doing that at 30 fps, Canon.

Yes, but by same logic, this means better quality 4K video.

Mariano Pacifico: It is still under development. I can wait for another two years

@Prosecutor, the rumor was July from the beginning (the same rumor that predicted the basic specs and the early announcement).
But yes, Corona. Latest rumor says either low quantity launch in July or "full power" launch in October:

In reply to:

mermaidkiller: Why did Canon release an 1DXIII instead of an EOS R1 (a mirrorless 1D class DSLR) ?
The 1DXIII does not mount RF lenses, while the R5 does mount both RF and EF.

Agree with Fab-BZH, but also I think Canon is currently very much driven by the technology they have ready. They now (or soon) have IBIS and they have new sensor designs with very fast readout (as demonstrated in 1DXIII and 90D/M6II, and probably the reason 8K in some form is now/soon possible). So now is the time they can make a "high-end" mirrorless. Canon simply didn't have those technologies ready when R and RP was launched.

To make an R1 as alternative or replacement to the 1D line, I think Canon is waiting until they have some EVF technology ready with very low lag. EVF lag is probably the primary concern for the 1D/R1 target group.
