millan: What about weather sealing? There is no mention about it.

Samuel C: Having an L is not enough. But both previous generation lenses 70-200 4 and 2.8 had weather sealing, so it would be very strange to remove it.

DiffractionLtd: More ominous signs the "film resurgence" is a fleeting thing. Now, I think most cameras have been discontinued, except for one crappy SLR with Vivitar(?) name made in China. Film shooters now subsist on a huge installed base of tens of millions of old film cameras. Whether this means film use will continue with any robustness is anyone's guess.

DiffractionLtd the Canon 1v is not exactly bad built. But it contains a lot of electronics, so it is fragile regarding that. As canon won't service it any more I guess they must gradually use one body to repair another. But I guess they will become quite cheap. I had one about 15 years ago, and I bought it for about 500$.

jor23: Please make a Sony version

Should Canon make a Sony version? You must be kidding.

They are of course both sealed, or else they both would be downgraded in that regard.

Dpreviewmember: If you use PC laptops, then the encryption feature should be enabled, because the risk of loosing the machine is quite high. Encryption is a feature in the Enterprise and Pro editions of Windows.

Photoman: Can I put on a digital back???

that would be just stupid. Just get a used 1D?? something. And you get a digital camera that is similar.

There still might be a nerd somewhere that still service them. But canon are not going to. It was a very good camera though. I had one just to try out the focus system of canon 1 series.

Wes: Come on Canon.... 70-200? That's already the best lens you make!
The one lens just about everyone is begging for is a 24-70 f2.8L III IS.... so where is that?!

*facepalm*

the 70-200 range is one of the most popular professional lenses. so it gives much sense to update those lenses.

pixelgenius: Marketing speak taken to a new and ridiculous level:
“appear more true to how the human eye perceives the real world."

Rick Knepper. I would actually believe that the eyes are worse than a monitor if the image is detailed enough ( high resolution , and high colour gamut monitors ). Because our eyes are not very perfect at watching things at different distances. So I believe that most high end monitors are more detailed and accurate image than I see the world.

Rick Knepper. I have 3 Eizo monitors. But none of them are high end.

Fog Maker: Fake or real... None of them is proper representation of how we actually see the world

nevada5: the out of focus area of an image is the bokeh. If it is straigt optical. And not made by software. Artificial out of focus area is not a bokeh. Sure. But that is why they call it fake.

brycesteiner: In windows 10 you will have to go to elevated mode for watching registry, editing in program files, and system folders etc. But it is possible to do it. The windows/temp does not exist on windows 10 any more. There is a temp catalog attached to each account on windows 10 now. So windows 10 is beginning to be an operating system now. But still worse than unix in the early 90s. But still windows is a fairly good OS now. You will be able to go into every directory if you know how to do it.

Or a bad translation.

brycesteiner: How are you locked out of temp on windows 10?
Windows 10 is the best windows OS so far. Much better than windows XP.

vscd: In lenses nobody beats Canon... apart from Zeiss, maybe.

GabrielZ nikon is not doing so much videography. Canon have a low end cinematic cameras ( low end in the sense that the bodies cost less than 10000$ )
The real high end cameras cost almost 10 times as much.

On the best high end lenses of Canon, there is nothing to say about the quality really. Except that it is top notch.

sirhawkeye64: Too bad HP doesn't have the best history of reliability. I mean, Dell doesn't either, but my ~$300 Dell Inspiron 5000-series laptop with a dual core CPU and 12GB of RAM does a decent job at general photo editing while traveling, and it's small enough to be used for tethering on-site (as it's a 13" 2-in-1 convertible tablet/laptop). It's not the fastest or prettiest notebook out there, but it gets the job done and it was cheap, and most importantly, it just works. I've had some issues with HP's in the past, particuarly their cheaper desktop models. (In fact I just had to fix one the other day for someone. An HP desktop that was only a year old with a failed hard drive--unfortunately, it's not an uncommon things to happen to store bought computers; they just use cheap components---you're sometimes better off building your own if you have the technical skill to do so).

Failed hard drives is an common issue, and can come for any brand of computer. Some drives works for more than 10 years. But others only works one year. Having a failed drive is really more about bad luck than anything else.

confused circle: Why do these articles get this stuff wrong. DSLR revenue fell over 6%, mirrorless increased 14%, over the same period where the irrelevant unit sales was reported. That means that each DSLR is bringing in less money than before on average. Hell, just take an average per unit value for the reported units and yen in the chart, it's embarrassing. At no point does an analyst look at flat unit sales and declining revenue and think that's a product segment that's doing well. Analysis isn't even focused on units, it's down to cash flows and the associated efficiencies and controls. You measure turnover on equipment through dollars generated, not pieces.

Heard about revenue on lenses? They also sell lenses...

Yatin Chachad: Stunning. Most impressive. However, it's time humans stepped in to provide help to these and other animals, rather than take a sidelines Nat-Geo approach of sitting and recording their plight and watching them die. Not to intervene would be to sin.

The musk oxes where exitinct some 9000 years ago. But were introduced back into norway. So they are actully not in their natural habitat. They went extinct long time ago...... The population we have now is from the introduction in 1947.
