KISAP: In order to get 50% share, Canon needs to have:
1. 18 stops dynamic range
2. 6K at 60p
3. 50MP switchable to 25MP
4. Lens as sharp as Sony GM
5. Articulated screen
6. 4:2:2
7. Eye focus with -5EV
8. All other features equal to A7III
9. Same price as A7III
Because when Canon is ready to come out with the next big mirrorless camera Sony will have A7V, Fuji will have X-T4, X-H3, Panasonic will have GH-7!

Hywel T Phillips: ... and this is a worthwhile reminder of the dangers of trusting companies in the cloud.

I have an Illum, purchased to experiment. Good job I didn't ever come to rely on their web platform.

I accept that companies move on (and indeed go bust).

In situations like this I think they should release the web hosting code so that any customer who wants to can use it for embedded living pictures on their own server, though.

I agree, but if you drop your Adobe subscription, I understand you can still access your files but I'd be downloading them anyway.

I was tempted to buy one of their cameras, lucky I didn't

Most people only have one phone but many of us have more than one camera.

I’m not a photographer, yes, after a year of paying the Adobe Photographers package and not using it, I realized that I’m a recorder and not an artist and never do any post work.

Daryl Cheshire: Yes when I got the Canon 5D I considered the SD15 which cost the same.
I was disappointed with the pricing fiasco with the SD1 as the rumored price was more realistic and it seemed that some executive just doubled it.

Interesting reply.
That you.

CameraLabTester: Sometimes...

The title of an article is so HIGHFALUTIN that it defies logic and common sense.

I'd like to have this one but I have 5 Canon lenses, and I've been looking at the Sonys.
These days I'm less swayed by GAS. I'm just window shopping.

Daryl Cheshire: Can we read photo files in 20-50 years?

JPGs have been around for years and I hope we can still read them decades from now.

we've been taking jpgs since digital photos became mainstream and I'm optimistic that they will still be readable by future software.
Yes old magnetic media is still a concern and CDs deteriorate over time.
I am interested in railways and appreciate that pictures of non-existent locomotives and railway buildings now demolished happened because someone in the 1930s exposed a film and the photos were found years later.
So potential old digital photos will need to be retrieved from old computers and backup disks.
Data centers shut down go broke and delete everything.
There will be no more old photos after 2000.
Even printing is no guarantee as some printer inks fade after a few years.
I know some inks have a guarantee of permanence.
Printing photos will be irrelevant of the storage technology.

larrytusaz: What I don't care for is when serious cameras are crippled or simplified so that soccer moms can feel more comfortable with them. SLRs etc even entry level ones are for people who understand what f-stops and ISO etc are, they shouldn't have features removed just because a soccer mom type doesn't "get" them. I understand body durability and features like wireless flash but adding live view or YouTube mode to an SLR NOT because pros want it but so that soccer moms can be persuaded, no.

And, marketing driven or not, the D7500 removing the extra card slot was just dumb. Why downgrade? Sony made that same goof up with the A6000 not having the electronic level of its predecessor the NEX-6. At least they rectified in its follow up the A6300.

I bought the original Canon 5D and was initially disappointed that it didn't have live view but I realized that a second sensor under the mirror is necessary.
This happened on the 5D mk II and later. So not just software then.

you could have a huge keyboard (in any language) on the screen and a touch bar as big as you like, say 4-20 lines?
Even icons for gaming like that OLED keyboard demo'd a few years ago.
With an unresisting surface, you'd get flat fingertips and shorter fingers in a short time.
