In reply to:

Attilasz: Honestly I see lots of complaints here about 4k video. Pff, what about ppl. like me, who don't care about video at all. If I want to record videos I'll buy a camcorder...

And the other type of dudes, the Sony worshipers: I don't like Sony colors so don't really care about the shiny specs..not to mention if you need more than iso 6400 you are doing something wrong..

I know few friends who would never trade Canon colour for anything out there.

Nijaa: I'm planning to upgrade my body from my Canon 1100D which I have been using for 3 years.. I want to have better iso performance and better focus tracking abilities. I'm not interested in the video features. As far as I have researched, Canon 7D mark ii is the better choice. But, I cannot afford one. So, will I be happy with a 70D or get the 80D??

I was also considering 80D... but 7DMKII photos and comparison results look much better than 80D. I suppose I'll wait for Canon to update 7DMKII. Knowing Canon approach to milking their customer base to the n-th. degree, it might be a long wait,,

In reply to:

Photato: A Silver award based on erroneous assumptions.
Obviously the Video score is overrated given the G7X II inferior video quality to the competition. (Sony RX100 III & IV, Panasonic LX100 and the upcoming Nikon DL)
On page 4 "Features", of the Video section, the review mistakenly state "As with the original model, we believe that the camera is reading out the entire sensor when capturing video, which maximizes quality."
Which is false since their own test confirm that is not the case.
But don't take my word for it. Here is the link where you can compare the G7X video quality to the Sony RX100 III IV & Panasonic LX100, etc
Which by the way, these samples were not made public for both G7X reviews.

Worst thing Canon could do was to use Sony sensor - the colour richness that is so important to Canon users is now gone. Makes this Canon completely useless in every regard.

DToole: A good photographer will still take fantastic photos with this camera, suitable for just about any reasonable print size with a little post processing. A bad photographer will never take a good picture with this or any other camera. But plenty of bad photographers will be spending three times this much on a camera.

no he won't. he will be unable to achieve an accurate focus. this camera is a junk

Undeniably a great camera. Very sharp, in particular with fast Nikkor lenses. But.... something is not right with the colour saturation / color cast. I am pretty sure the results are close to natural, but..... when I check that Canon 80D... my hart warms up and I simply enjoy those Canon colors better.

That being said, Canon shots do look muddy... sharpness-free... ahhh well....

Boky: the sample photos done with that 18-13 5 look lifeless and with no sharpness of any sort - amaizing... and the combo costs $1600 !

this did cross my mind as well...

On article Taking it easy: Canon EOS 80D shooting experience (294 comments in total)

For years I've been saying how lousy the canon AF body/lens combo works. It is fundamental flowed. Buying a body without AF Micro-adjust is equivalent to flushing the money down the toilet, in particular if your lens collection consists of expensive L zooms.

So, what do we have in 80D???

A micro adjust that allows for a separate adjustment point with zooms, for wide angle, and when zoomed in!

They can't fix it. I knew that some 10 years ago when I was scammed in buying dSLR and expensive zooms that were unable to provide accurate, consistent focus results.

The funny thing is, how they still manged to sell rubbish for another 10 years....

In reply to:

darngooddesign: This is great. I used a similar guide to replace the lens module in my S100 after it developed the lens error. This looks like a less fiddly and easier repair than that was.

that will be expanded to the whole car in the future...

Ahhh, the good old Canon! Milking their customer base to the nth degree.

DtEW: It's pretty awesome that some companies actually do seem to try hard to bring you good value for your money, and plan for a long-term relationship with the customer.

It's also great that Roger Cicala can educate and disseminate to the camera-buying-public this sort of insight that is rarely obvious behind all the marketing and ad-copy.

Kudos to Canon and Lensrentals.

they didn't show the PCB.... and the accompanying filtration (chokes / caps) found only in the noisiest of switching mode power supplies.

In reply to:

Boky: so, in general, underexpose the photos to hide lousy DR, use post processing to compensate for inaccurate (shocking) white balance between lit and dark scenes, add sharpness to taste... on a bright side you do get that outstanding 0.5 frames shot-to-shot in RAW.

..... nothing's changed in Canon world in 100 years...

Nick

sure, but the lousy DR ones are sold to canon
