On a photo in the Canon EOS RP sample gallery sample gallery (3 comments in total)

So, where is the lack of DR ?

From image 8 & 9, Where is the lack of DR ?
I mean, the camera seams to have enough headroom to make an HDR from one badly underexposed picture.
So, even if it is not state of the art in this department, it looks good enough nonetheless.

I wonder which parameters Lightroom choose in raw on iPhone Xs ...

amanieux: Neural Engine is just a dedicated coproceessor that computes NN faster and with lower power consumption but the same algorithm can run on any ARM CPU so there is nothing new here

The real added value is to render the final result in real time while you frame. Which is huge.

exb: Everybody forgot that iPhone 5 and 6 had 1.5 µm pixel size then they did change to 1.22 µm in 6s generation?

6s give much better results than 5s, despite pixel size. Pixel size is not that much relevant.

crashpc: For sake Chr.... It´s a smartphone. Pockets, fingerprints and such. Why don´t they put lenses little deeper to cover it a little bit?
Ah, I see, to scratch it soon, so one must buy new device.
Not commenting on camera performance or price...

My 3yo 6s has no scratch on the lens. I use no case.

Tieu Ngao: Canon needs only 2-3% more to have 50% ILC market shares, and that's not impossible. What about other manufacturers? Here's what I think:
Fuji: needs 1-2 more models for pro (>$2000), and 2-3 models under $1000
Sony: is doing fine on FF but it needs new A6xxx model priced under $1500, also couple of new A5xxx models under $1000.
Nikon: must hurry on both FF and APS-C mirrorless and new lenses.
The market is getting more interesting...

He said ILC market, not mirrorless market. I don't know if the numbers are right.

Full Stop: Dear Canon,
please use no more than 15mm as flange-sensor-distance for your future FF ML mount, so we can use all SONY lenses via adapter.

They can also make use of the adapter, sure. But what will be the advantage ? There is no existing EF M lenses well suited, and unless Sony is incredibly bad at optics design, what FE lenses demonstrate is that FF lenses are large even for FF mirrorless.

@T3 : They could also use the EF mount. Lot of lenses. And a not significant size penalty given the size of FE lenses.

On article PowerShot Shootout: Canon's G1 X III vs G7 X II (254 comments in total)
In reply to:

scotthunter: For a slightly better idea of what the G1X III is capable of, have a look at two of my landscape images, which can viewed at full size.

http://www.scotthunterphotography.com/Devon/Dartmoor/i-fV6chxv/A
http://www.scotthunterphotography.com/Devon/Dartmoor/i-9VWrZQZ/A

These two were shot with the G1X III, the rest of the images on the site were shot with the G7X/G7X II.

My first impressions of the G1X III are positive. The G1X III is capable of more detail and the lens seems slightly sharper. The additional pixel count helps in these situations and compensates slightly for the shorter lens. The EVF alone makes it a great upgrade.

I think you should add this to the article.

Sidath Senanayake: Why would I get an M100 over a Sony a5100?

If I already had EF-M lenses, then it would be pretty obvious, but if all I have are EF lenses and don't want to use adapters, doesn't the fact that the a5100 has a wider lens selection and costs less mean it would be the better option for a beginner?

I'm not trolling here, I shoot Canon and Sony and would like to know whether I'm missing something here :)

It is not how many lens there is, but if the lenses you want are available and how much they cost.
22 ƒ/2, have no equivalence in E mount APSc lens, 11-22 ƒ/4-5.6 and 18-150 ƒ/3.5-5.6 sony equivalent lenses are more expensive and bigger. 35 ƒ/1.8 and 50 ƒ/1.8 have no equivalent on EF-M mount.

matthew saville: That's a good ~5 more than I'd expect from Apple, so...

in fact, iPhones score 6 or higher since the iPhone 3G.

In reply to:

tm8: Let's not get carried away with apple marketing speak... that second lens is not telephoto, it's something like 56mm equivalent right? Basically a "normal" lens.

from what I have read, it is a bit wider on the iPhone X, so very close to a normal fov indeed.

Photato: Chase Jarvis, just like some selected bloggers and reviewers got their unit from Apple. This is part of Apple's marketing strategy to get the buzz around the iPhone X started.
I guess DPR didnt get any yet cause they are more critical or might be still under NDA.
AFAIK the pictures should be the same quality as the iPhone 8, in other words, good but nothing like "the future we couldn't put words on"

the main difference is, given f/2.4 and stabilized telephoto, no more WA crop in low light. IMHO it is significant enough

So,
- the app has to be in the foreground,
- the app did not pass Apple validation process
- you can revoke an app permission

Compared to 1" curent similar offering :
- marginally better IQ at low sensitivity thanks to the larger sensor and less compromised lens,
- marginally worse in low light because of the slow lens,
- marginally worse at DoF management because of the slow lens,
- marginally better AF thanks to DPAF,
- significantly shorter focal range,
- weather sealed,
- bigger,
At twice the price, for such a mixed bag it does not sound like a good deal.

In reply to:

pacnwhobbyist: I would never buy either of these because of the limited lens reach. I get that on the Canon it would mean a much larger lens but still, only out to 70-75mm isn’t terribly useful. I wish Canon would find a way to return the excellent 5x zoom lens found in the G15 and G16 to one of their 1” sensor cameras. Granted that was on a camera with a 1/1.7” sensor but 4 or 5 years later with tech advances they should be able to pull it off.

The G7x already have very similar reach capability than the G15 and G16. A 12MP crop give you 130mm fov, and still f/2.8 and 1/1.3” active sensor diagonal. At 140mm the G7x still use 10MP and a larger active sensor area than G16.

Najinsky: Mmmm, Lemonade!

A wise man once said, when life deals you Lemons, make lemonade!

Like many here, and also in the forum discussions of late stages of the rumors, I was looking at that F/5.6 and that $1300 pricetag and thinking, that's just not right.

But the reality is, if I can get passed that F/5.6 and the pricetag, I see this as a very nice camera indeed.

24mm, 28mm, 35mm & 50mm with APS-C light coverage and 24MP of detail to play with. If the optical performance is good, that's a very appealing package. The leaf shutter and built in ND filter can be invaluable on the rare occasions I need them.

If it's up to Canons usual standards, the ergonomics and shooting experience should be great (words can not express how much I disliked shooting the Sony RX100, and I sold it)

4K video holds almos no appeal for me, 1080/60p gets the job done for my simple needs.

USB charging negates the shortish battery life and removes the need for a dedicated charger, travelers applaud that.

Cheers!

I am not sure if they measure the same thing. But in practice, if dynamic range of the scene is too large, I expose for the right and then lift the shadows, so I am pretty confident the DPR approch is right.

@ onemoreguy : “However, from what I see, Canon APS C sensor does not even have better DR than Sony 1 inch sensor”
Despite what DXO is showing, just go there : https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canon-eos-80d-review/12
It is obvious the M6 has better dynamic range than the RX100 IV at base ISO (may be half a stop). And while the RX will climb in sensitivity later than the Canon, DR suffer a bit less at increased sensitivity on the Canon.
