On article DPReview TV: Canon EOS 90D review (206 comments in total)
In reply to:

The Silver Nemesis: My question for the author of this video review would be: would you trade an “old” 7D II for this new 90D? Because I really cannot appreciate how “tough” the camera body is - something that I can guarantee for the 7D II. Thanks.

Or wait a few months for 7diii announcement. Depends what you shoot though and 90d might be good enough upgrade with improved res and dr.

FujLiver: I remember my first Canon, it was a 40D. Such a wonderful camera to use at the time. I was spoiled by the 5D. The world has moved on and APS-C DSLR doesnt make any sense as a technology. I would expect this is Canon's last xxD. Nice for those diminuishing numbers with any significant investment in APS-C DSLR lenses.
Definitely a collectors piece ..

Yeah, it's pretty hilarious. New camera comes out and everyone is like, "what a great camera" "the image quality is GORGEOUS"....3 Yrs later - "that camera sucks" "its images are trash". Uhhhh??? Of course the argument would be that it sucks or is trash relatively speaking, but then you look at images and, well, I just say pick your genre, then pick your best image of that genre, and then do a search of, say, a 5Dii photos in that genre. For 99.999% of photographers, they will find that the old "trash" camera that "sucks" can still make better images than their very best. Of course better and best are subjective in photography, but it's usually clear as day. It will always be about the 12 inches behind the camera. Especially these days. The only truly separating aspects are some functions - mostly focus ability. Other than that, their all the same barring some very personal preferences

c h u n k: One card slot???? No joystick???? Where is the outrage? If it was a Canon...

What's crazy is there isnt one pro level function or hardware that people dont cry about not being in midrange cameras. Seriously - there isn't one thing that people cant just say, well, if ya want your camera to do that, you have to pay for the flagship. Imagine people complaining a Honda Civic lacks Lamborghini performance and Bently interior

Poznashu: Does the removable viewfinder EVF-DC2 work on EOS 90D? It would be great!

That would have been a smart move, but I'm sure it doesnt

APSC is still often a better option. I leave my fullframe in the bag or home when photographing macro, birds, and sometimes sports. The only hypothetical I can think of which would make the APSC format obsolete is 1) a huge reduction in production costs/end price of sensors where crop format cost the same as full frame, *AND* 2)Fullframe resolution is so high that shooting in a crop mode on a fullframe still leaves enough resolution after the crop *AND* 3) Lenses come down in cost to the same consumer friendly prices that APSC lenses are.

Just because you finally got a fullframe and crop isn't beneficial to you, doesn't mean the same is true for everyone.

In reply to:

Henrik Herranen: Some corrections:

Page 2: "It also brings about some new features like the use of Canon's newer CR3 Raw format, including the compressed C-Raw option."
Comment: Canon RAW is and has always been compressed, but the novelty with C-Raw is that it's compressed in a lossy way.

Page 3: "When shooting through the viewfinder, the 90D still offers a somewhat limited 45-point spread (all cross-type), similar to that of the 80D - when shooting at apertures of F8 or smaller, 27 of the points remain active (of which 9 are cross-type)."
You might want to rethink this. Honestly, and without trying to misunderstand, I can't make sense of what this quote is trying to say. Unless something revolutionary has happened, when I shoot through the viewfinder, the maximum aperture of the lens affects how many and which kinds of AF points I have, not the shooting aperture. Also, the word "smaller" is confusing. Does the "smaller" is "F8 or smaller" refer to a smaller aperture or smaller number?

They are clearly talking about the max aperture like if using an extender. I dont care how you interpret "shooting aperture", it doesnt make sense and has nothing to do with what aperture the lens is set at - only the max (wide open) aperture matters regarding this.

c h u n k: Just curious - with the M6, if using the viewfinder, can you not also use flash/speedlites? Since the hot shoe is being used by the evf.

Prospecting on what a 3rd party *might* solve (but probably wont) isnt very convincing. There are many scenarios where using the vf and flash is preferred for me and a lot of photogs for sure- not just for fill in a back lit situation. In any event, for a lot of people I guess they will love it. For most that shoot with off camera flash a lot, this might be a deal breaker.

Yeah, still may want to use on camera flash to bounce, or, more importantly, trigger an off camera flash.with *radio* signal. Optical triggering can cause issues in a number of ways. Maybe there's a port, but dont know how you mount the trigger then. That's an issue for this camera. Really, unless there is some solution I cant see, it's a deal killer for me.

TonyPM: I'll wait for the full review and the full image gallery with better lenses than the 18-135 is USM. Same with the m6ii.

Flash, what are you talking about? It's a 90d (xxd series), not a rebel. Most will *not* be using kit lenses or will also be using better glass. Do searches of 80d shots on flickr, 500px, wherever. You'll see. Good glass should be used on any review of a camera. Not saying there shouldnt also be samples with kit lenses - obv they should, but not using good glass doesnt exactly lend to good comparisons.

Platinumkid: My previous camera was 77D by Canon. I was generally happy with it and this one seems significantly upgraded. But there is one major problem with both of them. Canon, just like Sony with their 6xxx series, simply refuse to make some top notch lenses for APS-C cameras. If I was to buy a new camera today, I would go M4/3 or FF, depending on the needs and preferences, and if it HAD to be an APS-C, I would go Fuji.

It doesnt make a ton of sense to make high end lenses for only crop. Too many 0hotographers that spend $$ on lenses also shoot full frame and like their lenses to work on all of their cameras. Buy good/great full frame lenses and they work perfectly. Sigma also has a few good options specific to crop sensors.

dpfan32: I remember this old video of DigitalRev TV from the unboxing of the 80D.
There Lok unboxed the "excitingly" new 80D.
Quote:
"Canon 80Deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee..e..e..e - see how I'm exited"
with a very serious looking face.
LOL

In the end the 90D is as exiting as the 80D was at this time ;)

I shoot an 80d as my crop (also shoot ff though) and love it for what I use it for - it's an all around great camera that is reliable and gets good results.

DualSystemGuy: They really need to let go of their DPAF if they want to compete with Sony and others. It always seems to be a weak point in reviews. It's good for video but just not well suited for diverse action shooting.

Still waiting on link that shows a legitimate poor review of dpaf....thinking you made it up as you keep responding, but you conveniently ignored that request. Did you just make it up?

And by a weak point in reviews, you mean it has by far been one of the functions that reviewers rave about as being best in class? Please source a review that shines a bad light a dpaf

Storytime: AAAND THE NOMINEES FOR THE M6+90D CRIPPLE AWARD ARE:

1. No DPAF in 4K mode
2. 2x crop in 120fps
3. Video codecs from 10 years ago

And the winner is.......

Is 25 different from 24?

Necip: Yongnuo EF is dying rapidly I guess Canon let you down too. Look to Sony mount likely get more sales.

People should be aware of paid/incentivized trolls in forums. You can click a user and see their comments
Some spend an irrational (seemingly anyway) amount of time either bashing a specific camera/camera brand or they are advertising for another one. It doesn't make sense that someone would go on crusades like that. I've noticed some users are on literally every single Canon thread bashing Canon - often bashing Canon for something that isnt even relevant to the topic. I've seen a few suddenly disappear and someone else appears saying the exact same things. I'm convinced that Sony has several accounts on dpreview, and I'm usually a skeptic

...and Necip, it was a leak of the real Canon promo. Not a rumor video. So, catch up. And, FWIW, it has 4k, 30 and 25....so maybe hush before you make more of a fool of yourself.

"High iso noise" is what you look for people saying to know they dont know what they're talking about.
