Internet Enzyme: QHD is nice and everything but I feel like if you’re buying a display in 2017 you should probably go for 4k. I understand 4k can be expensive, but I feel like future proofing will most likely save you money, Also I dislike that name “QHD”. It’s kind of confusing. 720p shouldnt even be called HD anymore in my book.

Daniel, your initial comment was on resolution, QHD vs 4K. So level of detail.
If now we speak of percieved brightness, paper vs screen, I aree with you. The gap is often disturbing.
But there is no direct link between panel brightness and panel resolution.

Hmmm... if your printer cannot make an image finer than 91dpi, something's wrong.
IMHO, the 4k screens (138dpi on a 32", or 163dpi on a 27") are more photo-like.
Or i'm missing something?

Sandler: Most samsung tvs are 4k 120hz already. What is missing is content, whether on TV, netflix/youtube or in games that need powerful graphics cards.

Many pc screens can display 4k @ 144fps, through displayport 1.2.

In reply to:

Life recorder: ....and the gear heads here will rave about how awesome that 8k video looks on their 2.5K and 4k monitors. Forget the content... You must zoom in to 100% to fully appreciate video (and stills)!

Yeah, 8K is here and after a lot of effort and innovation, it will be mainstream.
But if we pop the head out of the gearhead newsfeed, what does it bring to the table for the average consumer?
- Alec gives us a real usage where 8K improve significantly the experience.
- I would say for Virtual reality screen too. I tested the Samsung VR set with the S8, and it's still clearly resolution limited (because of processing power constraint, not screen)
- what else?

For big tv/home cinema/etc (average consumer, remenber?), I don't think it will improve significantly the experience. Once usual viewing distance is applied, real 4K res is more than what my eyes can percieve.
So, like from 8 to 10bit, il will push a little further something already very good.

I mean, the move from SD to FullHD, this was a real BIG change, obvious for everybody. Will we see anything this obvious in the future?

Matthias_Mueller: This is ridiculous! For 1500 bucks you can get a OM-3 Ti in perfect condition, one of the best 35mm film cameras ever made. For 500 bucks you can already pick up used Nikon F5 bodies!

What are those people smoking?!

Obviously, more and more people have too much money in their wallet.
So this kind of "non-sense" is growing everywhere.
I mean, objects and services prices are less and less correlated with their real hardware/workmanship value.
I's all marketing, subjective and hype value...

Again, this can work only when people find themselve with more money than they can spend.

MEDISN : i'm afraid of seascape with this type of multi-exposure mode. Sea wave are not small moves.

Paul Amyes: M4/3 is getting very porky. The Sony A7r ii is a little lighter (35g to be precise) and the Canon 6d mk ii is only 100g heavier. Then there is the price, at approx $2400 AUD that is well into full frame territory.

Until you put a lens on this body...
And I didn't know that the 6D mkII was able to capture 4K or 20fps with afc or being weathersealed...
Well, apples Vs oranges.
Another camera, another compromise... more choices for us!

tkbslc: I'm not seeing a huge upgrade from the 1" cams.

If you prefer a more versatile lens with an 1" sensor, you're in luck : Canon have a handfull of them too.
Seems people are unused to Canon selling products so close to each other. :)
But more choice is good, right?

In reply to:

anticipation_of: Maybe this is an ignorant newb question, but what are we supposed to learn from downscaled pictures? A slight downscaling can hide a multitude of IQ sins, while at the same time making it impossible to make an apples-to-apples comparison with other cameras. It makes me wonder what is in that last 10% that Canon wants to hide, and makes it seem like they are less than fully confident in their new camera’s abilities.

Is this sort of thing common when dealing with pre-production samples? As someone who is fairly new to all this, it seems really weird. Either the camera is ready, in which case people will know what its true output looks like soon enough, or it’s not, in which case why let the images be seen at all? To me, this feels like the camera is as ready as it’s ever going to be, but that Canon isn’t very proud of it and is nervous about letting people see what it really can and can’t do.

Is this normal? Am I missing something?

I would like to see the full res images.
But, hey, 90% downscale makes them 19,4MP, so it's more apple to apple with all the 1" sensor cameras, right?

Photato: The lack of in-camera charging capability and no micro-USB plug in a travel camera are one of the many things that irritates me about Canon.
This is not deliberate features crippling for a lesser model but plain stupidity and negligence.

Jacs, your point doesn't stand since all newer Powershot G are able to charge via USB.
Incuding this already-disregarded APSC G1X MKIII.

No, it's a side effect of eye-af.

I'm viewing this on my Windows regular 14" laptop, on Chrome.
I would like to see those (nice) pictures in real fullscreen... No need for this lower roll and right bar with comments.
Is this possible? I though it was the point of a gallery.
Now i'm using barely half the screen area... Or I'm missing something?

In reply to:

FodgeandDurn: I hate to be that guy who asks people to shut up... but everyone who comes on here year after year to say they don't want touchscreens is passing up a perfectly good opportunity to save their breath.

You can simply turn it off. The digitiser layer which enables touch on a screen is worth a pittance - they go on eBay for less than $10 for older smartphones.

There is almost literally ($10) no downside for any of you, there is a huge downside for those of us who have learnt to exploit it's many benefits.

Okay, but on this Canon, it's not the case : 3 dial + exposure comp dial + quite lot of direct buttons.
With a bit of practice, I can see myself using it in the dark witout any issue. And for me, this kind of ergonomic is priceless. It can save you a lot of shots.

Wye Photography: As the dynamic range of sensors increases, where does that leave filters?

Bracketing won't work as soon as there's something moving in your frame...
- wind in the tree
- waves on the sea
- people (alive)
- ...
So it's far from a perfect solution.

In reply to:

Najinsky: They should simply make a slot to insert your smartphone as the UI for the camera. It could provide a richer UI, reduce the cost of including a touch screen and OS to support it, tap into the GPS, and store photos both on the phone and the internal storage.

Perhaps once all smartphones mover to USB-C it might happen.

Don't forget the massive processing power that smartphone has on-board today.
I suspect a BIG technology gap between Canon's Digic 7 and Apple A11 (read foundry process so transistor density and energy efficency).

tinternaut: Will it import Lightroom photo libraries? I guess Adobe have those pretty locked down.

it's exactly what you'll loose.... Hours and hours of RAW editing saved in the Lr database that will be partially or totally lost depending the new software you'll use.
That's the joy of closed-source software.
One "solution" though : you export in (Jpeg or tiff) your carefully handcrafted images to import them in the new soft.
Yes, you'll have various separated versions of the same picture in your new archive. But that's the only way I found.

Jefftan: I don't use Luminar and don't know if it is good or not

but Adobe way of doing business disgust me and if it succeeded, others may follow
like Capture One that I use

This affect everyone
any other company that can take business away from Adobe is very welcome

But, eventually, i'm affraid they'll all follow the leader path if money is flowing in for them.
Get prepared for the whole software industry to move toward suscribtion system :
- pro autodesk software (autocad and so on...) are on the way
- office 365
- windows as a service is coming
- even game consoles managed to get you paying for online gaming ...

Adobe is just slighly ahead of the industry, being the first to ditch any form of perpetual licence.

Wye Photography: I wonder if the guys at Capture One, ACDSee, Serif, RAWTherepee, DXO, Corel, etc have big smiles on their faces?

I'm sure it's a (big) opportunity for them.
But on the other hand, their smiles should disappear each quarter when adobe publish their finacial results...
