Johannes Zander: This stress test should be part of every DPR review.

Yes. Here you have stats from one camera which gives n=1. n = 1 is worthless testing.... actually. You must have for instance 20 cameras running same test. Then we are talking.... But what is the point? The manufacturer have a 200k guaranty which means if it fails at 20k you get new shutter from canon...

I guess 199k shots is acceptable when 200K is the number that manufacture is giving. It is not normal to do all those shutter actuations in one go which means that you actually force the camera to fail faster if you just do all at once.....

You can't just fire a shotgun anywhere neither.

Neuropsychology: no 4k, no dual card slots, no focus peaking? Yikes.

It is a camera for amateurs. Not for the pros. The pros should buy a 1DX or 5D IV for general shooting and video. 6D II can be used in studio shots though. Because you can have the images transferred to a computer while you shoot. and retake shots. But for events etc. When you only have one go, dual slots is a must.

Jintana: Looks like I'm gonna stick with my 700D now while waiting for the 6D Mark III in the future. The daylight photos look similar to my 700D no kidding via the naked eyes. No push to upgrade so soon!

You can't see much difference on images published on the Web. But if you are going to print, you will notice a huge difference if you have good glass. If you can't afford good glass then stick to your 700D. Better buy a good lense for your 700D than buy a 6D II with a cheap lens.

JeffGM: I can't say the iPhone has meant that much to me. It seems to be a good mobile phone and obviously it has more apps, useful and otherwise, than any single person can know about. That being said I have no desire to control every electronic gadget I own with an iPhone. I also can't say that I have ever needed to check my iPhone to see if I am loved by enough people to get me through the day. Being a high school teacher I get to witness the obsession most of my students have for their little electronic buddies. The only time many of my students actually look up is when they bump into another cell phone user hard enough to cause discomfort. Face to face socialization, in the old sense, is done by sitting at a table with other students and texting each other while keeping track of how many likes they each got on the last exciting selfie they took. They can do all of this without ever actually looking at another person at the table. Yes I am too old to understand! It get that!

iPhone brought smartphones to the mass marked. It has meant something for most people in that sense. Not all are using smartphones much, but phone usage affect how people around us behave.

Nukunukoo: Wold definitely be a game changer IF Adobe Photoshop port their apps to run on the Pros with Pencil support. The new IOS 11 can handle it now... Edit: Affinity Photo is now on the Pro. FTW =)

It's not just about computing power. Both Macs and PCs have very different environment for juice sapping applications. IOS is still an OS for apps. Not applications.

M Chambers: I'm sure Canon fanboys will love this. The form factor is horrible! It's clearly meant to look like a big SLR instead of a pro video camera.

I guess you don't have to be a fanboy to use it. They design it for the pro videographer in mind. The form factor is so that it is better suited to be attached to a rig. Which the pros usually do. Normal DSLR design is not as suited for rigging.

mariuss: Nice camera ...
Will this camera have ANY impact to the Canon 6D2 video features?
4K? Framerate? More DR? Better codec?
6D2 with better video as 5D4, maybe?

I don't care about the 6D II having 4K video. For amateurs the 4K feature is just too expensive to use. Canon already has 4K solutions for those who can afford the 1DXII or 1D C cameras, or the cinema cameras.

Impulses: No Type C is a pretty big turnoff, they need to get with it.

Turnoff? You can buy a dongle to get one. Instead of all the dongles you need if you only have Type C.... Like Macbook ......

Tim Gander: Those that have been listed will be going up in value now. I'll add this one because I safely have two now, the Canon EOS 1N. Ok, it's a lump, it's loud and nowhere near as cool and chic as an F3, but it's built like a hammer, packed with incredible tech, has AF reliability that blows even some recent DSLRs away and I picked up a second one (the first I bought new circa 1998 and it's still going strong) on Ebay for £160 including the drive booster! Everyone wants the EOS 1V which is much pricier, but heck if you can't take a decent photo with the 1N, the 1V won't save you!

At the other end of the scale, I love my Konica Pop which I picked up from a charity shop for £15. They're a bit of a cult amongst the hipsters and you can easily pay £50 for one. Apart from the flash, there's almost nothing can go wrong with the Pop!

The 1V is very good. It has a lots of electronics inside though. So if you want to go fully manual that is not the camera for you.

it would be nice, with eye controlled focus. Especially when taking shallow DOF pictures.

Father Bouvier: Fast forward year 2050.

Every Canon camera now comes with a free brain implant AF chip. The newest Canon EOS eBrain mk IV camera is head mounted and uses Near Field Communication. Canon still struggles with noise. Signal is too noisy, you have to shave all hair for camera to work. Bald people rejoice. The rest threaten to switch to Nikon, which still manufactures bodies for screwdrive lenses from 70 years ago.

Sony just finished automating the last part of photography: the need to move around. The new camera Sony Droid A0 is mounted on a robot that travels on its own and takes pictures with perfect exposure, focus, and framing, and then even watches pictures for you. Its cost is just $99999.99, and includes 3 free years of travel for the robot. What a deal! It saves so much money and efforts.

Metabones is now working on an adapter for the robot to use Canon chips ...

It is difficult to predict the future, but I don't think you are even close to the correct picture.

Kiril Karaatanasov: So Canon's strategy to ditch photography is paying off! Sounds good for shareholders.

They are not ditching it, but the customers of today want something else than for 10 years ago.... You can't win by just having the best sensor. In videography canon is doing much better than Nikon, and I guess that many buy Canon SLRs because theya re good for taking video as well as decent photos.

User9362470513: They needn't have bothered, as according to the wise heads on here, Canon are officially dead and buried, so they may as well shut up shop today.

Actually they are doing much better than Nikon these days as far as I know.

Hasselblad is good. But overkill for most.

I hope that third party developers also implement this adjustments in their software when the raw image is of this type.

Antal I Kozma: Looks good, however, the buffer capacity for RAW images is seriously undersized. Why on earth they did not increase it to 50-60 at least?

That is why you should buy the 1D XII . They don't want it to compete too much with the top model.

zanypoet: I may be nitpicking ...
I use both Nikon and Canon gear; built-in viewfinder shutter should be a std. feature on camera like this. Nikon has'em on their D800 series.

Otherwise, increased DR on par with Sony and Nikon is a welcome change ...

yes, build in viewfinder shutter should be standard on a $3500 camera.
