On article Canon EOS 5D Mark IV First Impressions Review (1126 comments in total)
In reply to:

Greg VdB: 1D x II, check. 5D Mark IV, check. Great, that's the pro's needs covered. Now, wouldn't the 6D's update, aimed at enthusiasts, be the perfect candidate to become Canon's first FF mirrorless? Give it a 24~28 MP dual pixel sensor, a swivel touchscreen, and a body slightly larger than the a7 line for good ergonomics (+ larger battery and heat sink), and see what happens. At the 6D's pricepoint, I think that would soar.

(I fully expect the anti-Canon fanboys to jump on this with fervour, so just to reiterate my main point: isn't the target audience of the 6D line the perfect FF mirrorless crowd in Canon-land?)

a canon mirrorless would not have a mark IV on it. It would be a new lineup.

Neuropsychology: Won't be ditching my a6300 as planned. I'll just keep it. Somewhat disappointed Canon.

What is dissapointing with it? For me the new Canon is very good indeed.

On article Epson's 4K home projectors to go on sale next month (59 comments in total)

The projector is NOT 4K. It is a 1080p projector. But with enhancement of the image to emulate higher resolution. The title here is misleading.

PanoMax: I would hope it would be able to project my Kodachrome slides and make a digital conversion internally on the fly. Otherwise useless.

If that is the only task for it , the projector is clearly an overkill.

steelhead3: I would sure like to know what I am looking at...the plasma gas in the middle, is it hotter than the yellow coming out of the rocket exhaust. I know nothing of rocket engines, except sometimes they don't work like they are supposed to, great video, wish it had sound.

i don't think the sound had been very neat. The imagery is takes so close that the noise must have been unbearable.

steve ohlhaber: I wonder what a correctly exposed frame of just the jet plume looks like. The engine should not even be visible with the right exposure.

but it is interesting if you want to see how the flow of the gasses out of the engine goes.

huyzer: 8K would be awesome. Instead of taking pictures for that decisive moment, you can video a short snippet, and then export a screen grab at the exact moment you have the image you want. Bring it on!!! :) That's a 33 megapixel photo. :)

If you don't want 8K, fine. But I don't understand people with their derisive opinions.

when taking pictures you have usually shorter exposure time. When taking video the shutter must be around 1/50th of a second. Which works very bad for action.

thoth22: Good comments on CR about this review, entertaining anyway.

"In the DPR motocross comparison article/Nikon advertisement, they criticized the 1D X II's automatic AF point selection for doing exactly what it was designed to do."

Quote from: Canon 1D X II Manual

Automatic selection AF
The Area AF frame (entire AF area) is used to focus. The AF point(s) achieving focus is displayed as <S>.
With One-Shot AF, pressing the shutter button halfway will display the AF point(s) <S> that achieved focus. If multiple AF points are displayed, it means they all have achieved focus. This mode tends to focus on the nearest subject.

"Auto Point Selection is the tracking mode that utilizes all 61-points and the metering sensor to first identify, then track a subject (iTR). By default, it is set to automatically choose its subject. I found it did this quite poorly, often choosing whatever the nearest point was to the camera instead of the motorcycle cruising by."

"Facepalm, indeed."

interesting. And I guess you don't have to use it. It is easier to focus in center first, then track after that with all focus points. That is more easy to understand in the field.

Tiderace: I n a double blind consumer test can anyone tell the difference between the two cameras using a diverse set of locations lighting dynamic range and subject? I wonder. Perhaps even the most sophisticated clients will think they see one better than the other but when a double blind study is used I bet they cannot.

This means both companies have pretty much built the best mousetrap needed and do not need to progress further in image quality. Only in usability and features.

When was the last time you had trouble with the image quality of a high end digital camera?

donsdavid: I saw a review on youtube a few months ago claiming that the neither the Canon 1DX Mark II nor the Nikon D5 can focus at -2EV. https://youtu.be/sT14RrsDW18?t=554
Maybe DPR can check this out too as part of the AF review.

Maybe he is testing the cameras wrongly. In the video he did not say that he tested with 1.4 optics. He used 2.8 optics in the video, and that would have yielded 2 stops difference from specification.

Triplet Perar: Wake me up when some company delivers a set of lenses all at f/4: 24/4, 35/4, 50/4, 75/4, 105/4, all bijou and petite, optically brilliant, distortion free, excellent 3D rendering, and razor sharp. That will be the day when digital photography may celebrate real accomplishment and we clap that someone started using brains and delivered fully on digital promise.

Why would anyone make a good 50mm /f4 ? When there are very good alternatives at 2.8 and larger aperture.

itaibachar: Looks like a big Instagram toy... and since when is 44x33mm medium format?
It's an "APS-C" MF, with "aps-c MF" lenses...

All that is larger than 24x36 is medium or large format.

My first impression is that there are some room on the ergonomy side. Too much reliance on screen for adjustments . There should have been more buttons and wheels.

sdh: "100,000x thinner" is really the wrong way to state it.
Unless you mean lenses will be like 1000 ft thick.
Sorry, if this were like Yahoo news it could slide but not here. :-(

Yes, it had just been better say 1/100000th of the size.

In reply to:

Cameracist: 16MP??? That's more than the expensive a7S II !!! Why pay more? What is Sony thinking!

I would rather have a 10MP DSLR for taking photos than a 40 mp smartphone. The 10MP images from the SLR will be far better in quality. Even with just 10MP.

ChrisH37: Lovely, how about some actual EF-S lenses so we can use them at the 'correct' focal length. A fast 35mm equivalent would be a good start.

you have zoom lenses that cover the 11-24, 16-35, 17-40 , and 24-70 area. And also 70-200. So all is covered. With L-grade optics. You don't need a special EF-s lens to fix that. The marked for high end lenses is small enough, it would be even smaller if you make it only for EF-S.

Max Iso: Canon needs to bit the bullet and enter the smart phone arena. Replace compacts with smart phones and call it a day, large sensor ILC will continue to hold it's own space.

canon is doing things in the pro video marked instead. I can't see any reason why anyone should enter the heated marked of smartphones of today. The competition is real.
