henrikbengtsson: Voila! The app-concept for cameras is here. In the future, the default software offered will be basic with optional downloadable functionality ($$) for a custom setup.

sh10453: Sadly, most commenters never read the article. They simply glanced at the title.
This is not just a firmware update.
It's a HARDWARE upgrade through Canon's Service Center for crying out loud!!!

The Fat Fish: Shame, the rumours of a real video fix for the 5DIV sounded so real and promising. Canons attitude towards 4K has been appalling. I've been toying with the switch to Sony over the past few years and now it's finally time. I had hoped to wait for the 6D MKII announcement but If they can't do it on the 5DIV, they won't do it on the 6D MKII.

A99mk2 is $300 cheaper than 5dmk4
But it come with not just Slog2 ,but also Slog3 out of the box.

NDT0001: The technicians time needs to be paid for as its probably needs a small hardware adjustment or add on. I dont get these commentators who are so outraged by a paid add-on to their already highly capable hardware. Where does the outrage of wanting extra features for free come from? If your using this camera in a professional business capacity, your $99 upgrade is paid for in the first hour of your work day. If you needed clog so desperately for video you probably already have a C class eos camera anyway.

Ebrahim Saadawi: So it's a hardware change (no matter how big or small) per Canon legally-bounded press release.

and It's purely a firmware line, and Canon are lying to rip you off.

Who should I believe on this matter; Canon Co. or a random DPR commenter?

I'll go with later thank you.

SONY A99 II AUTOFOCUS TEST
https://www.camerajabber.com/sony-a99-ii-autofocus-test/

"Quote: I was invited to shoot at a driving track at Mercedes World in Weybridge, UK. The weather was atrocious with with dense cloud keeping light and contrast levels low and intermittent heavy rain and drizzle. Visibility was poor and the front element of my lens required frequent attention with a lens cloth. The A99 Mark II managed to focus on the cars and keep them sharp as they accelerated along the track towards and away from me."

"Quote: Sony A99 II autofocus test I took the camera to a rugby match. This would enable me to test the camera with subjects moving in a less predictable direction.
Further good news is that the A99 II doesn’t just get subjects sharp in good light, it can do so in low light and in very low contrast situations. I would have no hesitation in using the A99 II to shoot sport in the future."

At 2008,
A900 24MP was the World’s Highest Resolution Full-Frame DSLR.
It is also the first Sony DSLR have IBIS (steadyshot) on a Full-Frame sensor.

Nowadays, A99mk2 & A7RII both have 42MP & 5-axis IBIS.

And recently people are complaining the A9 resolution is too low. :-P

KyleSlamchez: Dpreview has not published the full specifications of this camera. As a result, it looks way better than it is.

This camera shoots 20fps with the electronic shutter. That's cool, I guess. The Olympus OMD-EM1 II shoots 18fps with its electronic shutter, and it's "only" $2000.

The bad news? You can't use speedlights or any kind of flash or monolights with an electronic shutter. Also, shooting under flourescent lights will leave unsightly banding. Electronic shutters also reduce dynamic range in the final image. Sony claims to have eliminated rolling shutter, but this is not a global shutter, so it will likely be apparent if there is motion in the photo. Things like swinging baseball bats will likely appear to bend like rubber.

The Nikon D5 and Canon 1D shoot at 12fps and 14fps with the physical shutter.

How many photos can the A9 take with its actual physical shutter? Five. 5. Cinco.

5fps.

Heck, the original Canon 1D (which can be had for $200 these days) shoots 8fps!

kristian1: Is this really good thing ? lets see...
Cameras are better, faster each year. this camera shoots 20fps next camera will shot 30fps and so on...
What about our satisfaction ?
We lost some of it with digital area, film had that special moments when you just wait to end the roll of film and see results...
Once shooting action you needed skills, to know the action very well before you take that one "perfect" shot, and when you get it right you feel proud and your satisfaction is very high (you feel good).
Now with 20fps and even more in future you just need to press and hold the button and you will get one "perfect shot" out of many....
At first you feel great - wow what a camera, but very soon it will get normal and the special feelings are gone forever...
Do we make ourself something actualy good ? do we care how we actualy feel ? and what is imoprtant ?
I can see this good thing only for people who do it for money and dont care to much about photography.

Just my opinion.

High burst rate is difficult when using flapping mirror only.
When using electronic shutter, it is not too difficult get 30fps, 50fps, 60fps in the future model.

In reply to:

munro harrap: The idea Sony is ahead is weird. Here we have a throwback to 24MP. This alone signals competitors to continue leading the field. I use a D8. Do you know what a D8 is? Well its the D800 of course, spring 2012. Nikon pro machines are still at D5 same price and near enough the same resolution. Because 36-42-50 MP is Endgame, they restrict pro resolution deliberately to be able to continue to "offer more" in future upgrades until real world practical resolution is obtained, whilst my pics outclass in size and detail resolution all such machines, so HOW Sony CAN get away with this is all around you as Nikon and Canon pro gear is as bad, at double D810 prices.
In a decade all who bought lower res machines now will be kicking themselves, as any video aspect is irrelevant as usual when far better machines for filming exist already.

How much is an A7S and and A7R together? About the same. Battery life better? Shrugs and exits left......

You know Sony also make a A99mk2 with 42MP BSI sensor that can shoot 12fps and it is $1500 cheaper.

paulhojo: So is this the A7ii replacement? Or do we think there are more coming? I've been saving but not this much.

The A9 price at $4500.
It is 3 times the price of A7II.
