Have you tested the dynamic range in DPRAW?

From Digidog further down the comments: http://www.rawdigger.com/howtouse/Canon-dual-pixel-technology

DPRAW apparently increases dynamic range by 1 stop and bit depth from 14 to 15....

CopCarSS: Maybe it's all in my head, but out of all the dozens of digital cameras I've owned and used, the original 5D gave me the files that I thought were the "prettiest" for lack of a better superlative. There have been plenty of cameras that measure better but there are no other images that give me a jaw drop reaction upon opening to full resolution as consistently as my 5D images.

The same goes for the 1Ds mkII - a dinosaur, but still with 16.7 Mpix and lovely colours

In reply to:

naththo: I am confident that new 5D Mark IV will have lower noise than the 5DRS due to lower resolution at 30MP rather than 50MP so that high ISO shooting will be a lot less problem than the 5DRS to compare. And I have confidence that this new 5D Mark IV will have good low ISO noise as the recent 1DX. It is good to see Canon cut back on MP at last. Thats what most photography wants, 50MP is wayyy too much for just 35mm sensor size really!

Are you okay with 24Mpix on the 80D?

It was called the [mju]II in Europe as well - still have mine!!!

No ultrasonic sensor cleaning? I hope they've come up with a viable alternative (and what is it?) - Otherwise, what the hell????

JonB1975: About the buffering - if the camera was set to record jpegs to CF and RAW to CFast would it be 'unlimited'?

Good to know - Thanks!

No need to really worry about privacy until everything is hidden in the frame of the glasses (definitely possible) - just look at Oakley Thump MP3 sunglasses, especially with the earbuds removed.

mick232: Old wine in a new bottle. The Samyang 135/2.0 has just been re-released as a cine lens. What a disappointment.

You mean the 135mm XEEN? - Not the same thing at all....

Such a shame they couldn't properly break into the market... But I never did see any of their cameras in a Samsung store in the UK. In the Sydney, Australia store they had everything in....

Did they deliberately wait to do this until the camera has been discontinued? (The X-30 is no longer available in the UK at least)....

M1963: If only I could bludgeon the person who coined the "nifty fifty" expression.

Try explaining what a "Nifty Fifty " is to a beginner who has been recommended to get one by 'friends' but has a micro 43rds camera.... Aaaaargh!!!!
