Osa25: How long will the media keep blowing life in an outdated and otherwise ignored "tradition’? Filler for the editorial calendar, but otherwise irrelevant.

there's a little comment on your bitterness...

SDKat: Well, CLEARLY, if it ain't 8K, it's SQUAT. Plus, air vents mean NO weather sealing (I've heard). And WHO has time for all those buttons, fed cripes sake!

I like to think you forgot to put the sarcasm warning on your comment... :/

Michael Ma: Maybe Canon is taking a page from Sun Tzu's, "The Art of War". Canon deliberately looked weak against the young thirsty exuberant rival. Canon let the newcomer show all their cards and just when the young stud got lazy and started losing interest because all signs pointed to an imploding market, Canon brought out the mercenaries that have been secretly preparing for battle and studying all the weaknesses of their enemy. And now with the coronavirus further complicating Sony's manufacturing, timing is ripe for a quick defeat.

Best comment ever!

Ian Loveday: One of the best DPR advice pieces EVER. Just so true, and extends into so may other walks of life. I always wondered... do Canon get a royalty off these, or sponsor them as a marketing gimmick? I speak as a recipient of a Canon zoom mug. Thing is, I don't shoot Canon, and its not very stable (haha, Canon image stabilisation fail). At least folks, if you are going to do this then make one that has a base wide enough to use as a mug. Might have to be off the Pentax 67 system to get that wide base though.

@Ian: No, they don't. Actually it all started when Canon made the first one as a promotional item, then the Chinese guys start to copy them and every batch was worse than the previous one. So Canon started pursuing them because of the liability (poor materials, risk of accidents with hot beverages, etc.) and especially for using the Canon brand on them. But they are still appearing here and there. I've seen some of them under the brand "Caniam" :D

BJL: It seems that there is a new standard "1.25-type" lens mount for 8K cameras, with Canon making these lenses partly for use on other brands of camera (like Sony and JVC?) and Sony already making 8K 1.25-type cameras advertised as usable with lenses from other makers (like Canon?)

Does anyone know more? The motion picture world seems more amenable to standardized lens mounts than still camera makers.

It's has been that way since ever. Broadcasting world is just for a few players, on the camera side is JVC, Sony, Panasonic, and even Hitachi. From the lens side is mostly Canon and Fuji.

Do you people realize that there are other people besides Hipters-specgeeks-whiningforeverything-wannabephotographers-millenials? Have you ever heard of senior people who have time and money to spend on simpler products from a brand that is trustable...

The Fat Fish: To all those wondering if Canon could cripple the video features in their cameras anymore, the answer is yes! No 24P is surely that last desperate attempt Canon have at excluding hybrid stills/video shooters and videographers. I genuinely can't think of any more features they can remove.

@The Fat Fish: "30p is good for vlogging and casual YouTube videos" that is exactly the target market for this model...

Fantastic! I have the opportunity to watch it here in Chile. I was prepared to take as many pictures as I can but the overwhelming sensation of what I was watching made me forget about taking so many pictures... In the next day when I was processing the pictures, I've realized that I have the same pictures as everyone I know who was there, with very few variations, so I know as a fact that making unique photos of such an event is very difficult... kudos to @erez
