KLO82: It seems that an FF body with:
1. f2.8 or f4 zooms
2. many direct controls, specially AF controls
3. decent AF
4. very responsive/ fast
5. robust
- is the recipe for a photojournalist's camera.

Forgot to add weather sealing.

PHtorino: Oh come on! Another smartphone with some bla bla bla specsheet! Until they make one with at least the m43 size sensor, they should not be having any place in any photography forum or discussion. I am so bored with this.

These smartphone cameras are equivalent to m43 sized sensor paired with f5.6 lens - to put it into perspective.

FoxShutter: I don’t know why some comments mention here downsizing. Due to the lack of a USB charging this camera needs a battery charger attached , which is a half of the size of the camera itself . Taking in count the awful battery life, also a bunch of batteries is required on a constant basis. So , good luck travellers!
Additionally, I don’t know any modern camera ,except all of M series Canons ,that lacks minimum shutter speed in auto ISO. Fuji , Sony , Ricoh etc . all have it for at least 2-3 years . Even 1” Sony RX100M4 has it!
Canon JPEGS are nice but the cameras are really outdated by modern standards.

It is not like Canon do not know that we need minimum shutter speed with auto ISO. It is just that they intentionally do not provide this just to cripple these models. This is what that is driving many people mad at Canon.

You will not be able to find it's viewfinder magnification number anywhere in the internet. Fascinating!

FoxShutter: When I see the RAW files out of my Sonys I start to pixel peep and once I get satisfied by the sharpness I feel good. When I see Canon JPEGs I feel good about them right out of the camera, sometimes with some minor edjustments. Too bad there is still no USB charging and minimum shutter speed in Auto ISO.

To me, without minimum shutter speed option, Auto ISO is completely useless.

The way Auto ISO is implemented (intentionally crippled), it is completely useless to capture non posed people with wide, normal, or even medium telephoto lenses. And you should not buy this camera if you want 4k. Otherwise it looks like a good camera.

No one needs more than 4k for movies and broadcast. This may serve some niche purpose like security and something else.

Marcel: Still no cinema aspect ratio 1 : 2,35

What? DCI 4K (as used in this camera) offers both 1.85:1 and 2.39:1 aspect ratios from native 1.89:1 ratio.

taktak91: Well people, Canon will finally release a FF mirrorless with full video capabilities.
Go and pre-order.
It'll only cost you your arm and a leg.

Nobody is going to much for my arms and legs.

nekrosoft13: $40k for 24 inch 4k display? I don't care how good it is, that beyond ridiculous.

That is not a consumer display. Professional moviemakers/ Hollywood studios will buy these.

Sometimes I just wonder if it is Canon that got it right. May be they have figured out the point where further technical development starts to add less and less practical differences. So may be they have decided to stick to the good enough point and refine it over different iterations. Just thinking out loud here. What do you think?

I think Canon should continue with EF mount. They should also introduce 24 -, 28 - , 35mm - f2.8 IS lenses that will take advantage of the empty space that was previously occupied by mirror mechanism. These lenses should be very small and light. They need to introduce these lenses on launch of the FF mirrorless. But these lenses will not be compatible with DSLRs.

Charrick1: Of course, there is nothing much said in these interviews, because companies never talk specifically about future products. However, I do get the idea that Canon is focusing on lower-end products and does not have all that much in the pipeline for the higher-end pros. That's fine if the lower end is working for them (even though I was of the impression that the lower end is shrinking). Canon is selling the most cameras. While Amazon rankings change by the hour, Canon has 5 out of the top 10 current best sellers, and are in the number one spot. Yet Sony is in the number 2 spot with an $87 camera. Ranking isn't everything. Looking at the top camera on the list over $1,000, it is the a7 III. The next over $1,000 on the list is the a7r III. That is illustrative.

The question is not whether Canon will keep putting out cameras, but whether those cameras will have the innovations that you want.

That is a very interesting analysis! Thank you!

Romka: a perfect example of how not to do interviews if you value _existing_ customers

@ Barney: I guess his comment was directed towards interviewees, not interviewers.

"We could because it's all there, but we won't because we want you to pay more."

Umm, it is not a news businesses charge more to deliver more. But when a company goes extra mile to actively cripple a product - that will definitely cause dissatisfaction. It is like I provide 50 prints to my low paying wedding clients (I provide more prints to higher paying clients). But I also spend extra half an hour to make sure those 50 prints do not look as good as the prints I provide to high paying clients.

@cbphoto123: From the interview, it is clear that cost is not the reason they didn't provide dual pixel AF in 4K in M50. They didn't because they wanted to protect high end products. A camera that otherwise has dual pixel AF suddenly losing that ability when you start using 4K - that is actively crippling, not saving cost.

I bet those entry level ("limited wants/needs") customers would love to have dual pixel AF in 4K.

At the same time, they said entry-level models are where the high-volume sales are. So it is only logical to cripple that segment?

On article Sony a7 III sample gallery (555 comments in total)

So, just don't shoot with very fast lenses wide open pointed directly at bright light sources to purposefully induce flare , and you can bypass the problem. Not the best solution, but very workable.
