  • @erickmoreno: Wedding/theater/concerts? You have given reasons why IS isn't very useful (For photography). People aren't going to sit perfectly still for 1/2 second shots just for you.

  • Umm... I have a 21 Mpix 5D2, and 24Mpix crop body. I notice the difference, easily. What difference it makes is arguable, but as an example;

    I find 18Mpix about my limit for getting the print...

  • Here in New Zealand the R6 will be $5000.
    The Z6 can be had for $4100. With adaptor. And 24-70/4. It's a crazy good deal at the moment if you're in the market for something like it.

  • So it (may) overheat after extended video shooting. Get a Cinema camera.
    This has more than enough for most folks, and if not... see above.

  • Edit: I'm thanking Sony for pushing Canon to produce something like the R5. But I'm certainly not knocking Canon for actually doing it!

  • "Can someone help me understand" ... Probably not.

  • @Happy Dad.
    Just FYI, Canon require USB-C PD (Power Delivery). Many 'normal' chargers / power banks won't work.
    You got an RP? I'm possibly looking at getting one and battery life is a sticking...

  • Well done Canon. I was a doubter, but this looks to (finally) be a camera befitting your capabilities. [And at a reasonable price considering the specs].

    As @TheOwl360 says below - Thankyou Sony....

  • "DPAF figures out the distance". Do phase detect pixels only need to know how out-of-focus a subject is? [Then know where to drive the lens to get the subject in focus without actually confirming ...
  • It took me a while to find it: Maarten Heilbron - 'Expose to the wrong'. I don't want to dis the guy, he seems like an affable fella just giving a different POV. What concerned me were the amount ...
  • Yep. I guess I meant for those that have to pay for these things out of their own pockets. Unless the R5 falls well short of its on paper specs, I expect even a lot of sports pros will be happy ...
  • Well then, I'm first to admit that I was wrong about the R5 and its price, by about $600, at the very least. I'm a little confused: The 1DMk3 costs $2600 more, for what? Maybe video quality on the ...
  • I've been thinking! (I've been warned about that, but I still do it...) My (recent) understanding was that the sensor acquires focus and drives the lens to the required position. This may allow for ...
  • Sure, but I was being lectured by @Lawny13 about how people overestimate the importance of DR. He's right of course, people do worry about it too much. You're correct too. There is more DR ...
  • Here is an example of the sort of problem I can run into, shot just a couple of weeks back. [I've altered the middle section as a 'watermark'] Handheld, from a kayak. It's tricky because you have ...
  • Thanks for some of your insights, though I think you might be misunderstanding this discussion. I agree, shadow detail isn't that important. This is my reply to @gimp_dad j ust a few posts back : ...
  • You're overthinking it. I agree with your arguments, I just don't find them directly relevant. You know (as does any 'accomplished landscape photographer' that the best image quality - off the ...
  • It's probable that you are being 'realistic', rather than lazy. It can be fine line between the 'ideal' image, and too much shadow detail. I don't like to 'overestimate' the importance of shadow ...
  • You shouldn't find it "puzzling". 'Accomplished landscape photographers' can use whatever technique they want, but I'm sure they also know (as I suspect you do) that base iso will ultimately give ...
