In reply to:

Clamman: Wow that video quality is poor. Massively moving scenes like water are hard for encoders, but this doesn't just have a few macro blocks here and there but we can see the encoder's rate control totally failing in a couple of places and the whole frame breaking up. Is this how it looked staight off the camera, or is this the result of a poor transcode when it was posted to this web site? It'd be interesting to know the bitrate the camera uses, plus frame structure and GOP size. I hope this video isn't high bitrate IPB and just a bad transcode for DPR's website.

The video looks fine when you view on YouTube at 1080p60.
It is pixelated at 480 though.

LOL at the comments. So many people with GAS itching to upgrade because their current cameras are inferior and can't take a good image.

Andrew ATM216: It is sad indeed for canon to come out with this type of camera in 2016....this will indeed hurt their reputation....sometimes i wonder if the canon ceos really care.....im not surprised by the large number of photographers jumping ship-either to fujifilm or sony....

I've been a canon shooter for over 20 yrs....and yes, im awaiting for the fujifilm xt2 and i may also say, "bye bye canon".

Not sure how will this camera will hurt its reputation?

They need an entry level camera to sell this summer. This fits the bill perfectly. They have other options for Enthusiasts.

Images look fine, don't know why people are complaining so much.

Get a medium format if IQ is all you are after.

Nindy: The honest fact is they purposely don't want a 4K on an apc model dslr to protect EOS Cinema range.. We aren't stupid, this is just contempt.

Didn't they say in a previous interview that they will use the best sensor available? Time to pony up and buy a Sony sensor.

Horshack: Very savvy move on Huawei. They make great phones but many don't know they exist. Attaching their brand to Leica gives them instant name recognition without having to spend millions of dollars in advertising.

Canon at 40th, Huawei at 88 out of the top 100 global brands.

If you haven't heard of Huawei, you live under a rock or are really old. More the other way around.

Wouldn't be surprised if Leica got sold (ahem stolen) to a Chinese company.

In reply to:

bugbait: Most of the time I can't be bothered to click through 10 etc snippets of of information. It has always been annoying.

Anybody else usually just use the subject to find proper articles from other publishers to read. The content is not always shallow sometimes quite usefull in these DPR slideshows, (very old hat slideshows 1950s 1060s thinking.) But tremendouly frustraiting because of the lost marketing and educational potential.

The forums are very useful but for months at a time I never even look at the RSS feed of homepage content because most of the time itt leads to this type of format.

I don't even read the articles anymore unless its a camera that interests me. I just go straight to the comments and see what people are saying. Gives a quick glipse on how it compares to the competition.

Pageviews it what drives AD revenue on this site. The more you click the more they get paid.

The format now is fine.

Hoping it to be priced south of 300 USD

In reply to:

joe_leads: I'm wondering why they keep a DSLR mount for this camera. Why not make a new mirrorless mount with short flange distance and offer their existing DN lenses for Sony E, as well as future mirrorless lenses for both mounts? Their DSRL lenses could still be adapted.

So you guys that are against adapters saying that Canon is cheating me when I use my EF to EFM adapter.

Canon must not care about IQ to offer an inferior alternative.

In reply to:

DavidsfotosDotCom: Is there an adapter to mount on Canon EF? Which? & Vice versa?

I don't mind the OVF for certain situations. But I shoot a lot of legacy glass.

Mirrorless with the short flange and focus assist options makes it possible. Some of the Sony cameras have decent performance with Canon glass as well. Its this flexibility that I like with Mirrorless cameras you have options in Glass.

Good glass is good glass. Body's come and go. It just would be nice for another full frame competitor to enter the market.

If only they went mirror less. But then sony probably would have not sold the sensor to them.

Aroart: I find it amusing that people will hate this camera because of no 4k and those same people would not need or use 4k to its full benefits .... but a real film maker Casey Neistat uses a 70d for most of his vlogging...This is a you tube vloggers dream come true camera...

Pretty sure the folks that say they don't need 4k are the same ones saying 10MP is enough for stills.

scrup: Cmon guys the A6300 has more comments than Canons flagship. Lets buff this post more so it looks competitive.

yep, cant be pro with a crop sensor, poor 7d users, never get taken seriously.

jaxson: These seem to be teasing anyone with any remaining faith in the company.

Everyone else just gets a good old laugh out of it.

By the time the Pentax is available Nikon will have a D900 and D810 be around 1800USD.

Pentax are just too slow to market.

In reply to:

Atazoth: This thing looks like it would be fun to use because of it’s size and durability. I don’t do much video. I also don’t have a back up camera on my SUV I could also use it for that. Just a good back up camera cost 200 dollars or more and you have to have a dedicated screen. I haven’t seen one you can use a phone or tablet with.

Why not just get a chinese clone for 40 bucks if you are using it for a back up camera.

Link | Posted on Feb 5, 2016 at 20:01 UTC

Easy, manual override controls and a mount with a long flange.

E mount has a short flange so it is hard to adapt to other cameras.
