  • IMHO, yes.  They have made a mistake.  This will only cause confusion. Right off hand, the only other camera maker that I can think of with two different and incompatible mirrorless lens mounts is ...
  • No, I'm not trying to convince anyone of anything. I have no strong opinions about Canon (or Nikon either, really), one way or another. I'm just making observations, because I find this stuff ...
  • Created discussion thread Canon's Big Blunder
    Canon are introducing a new mirrorless lens mount, the RF, despite already having established the EF-M mount as their MILC standard. They're going to have two incompatible lines of lenses for ...
  • Replied in Is m43 Dead?
    I guess APS-C and Full Frame must be dead too, at least for serious photographer, since they aren't much bigger than M4/3. Serious photographers use 4x5 view cameras.
  • OK, somebody help me understand this… If I'm reading the specs right on that page, Canon are introducing *another* new lens mount? I mean, it's not going to use the EF-M mount that their...

  • There isn't that much difference between full frame and today's "medium format" (which is smaller than any medium format film frame).  The difference in imaging performance would be trivial and ...
  • I use my Sony A7 almost entirely with adapted manual lenses.  (I do have the Voigtländer 15mm which is native E-mount, but it's also a manual lens.)  So, what you describe is basically the way I'm ...
  • First I read the article, then resorted to Wikipedia to find out what a XQD card is. Thanks a whole heap, DPReview!

  • Some of us wouldn't care if a camera has Black & Decker on the nameplate as long as it does what we want and works the way we like for a camera to work.  However… Like it or not, the fate of a ...
  • I love my EVFs.  The way I look at it is, the pentaprism allowed us to compose our shots through the taking lens, and that was revolutionary in its day.  That's why SLRs quickly took over in the ...
  • Replied in Sony FDR-X3000
    Just got my Sony a few days ago and have been playing around with it.  The video quality is good, the image stabilization is superb.  The built-in stereo microphone is pretty good.  The only ...
  • Has anyone tried using this camera with a stereo microphone?  The reason I ask is, I loaded my audio, which I recorded using a mono mic, into Audacity.  That showed a stereo recording with only ...
  • Are you saying that all the mirrorless system cameras from Sony, Fujifilm, Panasonic and Olympus are "really designed for" fundamentally different purposes, and that they aren't cross-shopped?  ...
  • I understand your argument here, and…  you're wrong. You say that full frame is distinctly different from "crop sensor" systems.  I say it isn't. Sports cars and pickup trucks and family sedans ...
  • Seems kind if silly to me, since it treats "full-frame cameras" as a different product from any camera with a different sized sensor, even though the practical difference between them is very ...
  • Actually, the camera arrived this morning, and based on my first experiments the image stabilization appears to be doing exactly what I wanted.  Which is to say, I get a sense of the car's motion ...
  • Replied in Decided on Sony
    I did some research (and watched a lot of videos on YouTube) and settled on… a Sony FDR-X3000 and a Rode VideoMicro Compact microphone. Reasons: (1) optical image stabilization
  • Because your left hand is supposed to be holding onto the lens.  This goes back to the days of film SLRs where your left hand had to operate the focus and aperture rings on the lens.  And of ...
  • After seeing some footage on YouTube (like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X054JwZbQFw) , I developed a sudden strong desire for an action camera that I can mount in my car. So the first ...
  • I'll do anything to an image.  I play around with different effects, anything that creates a look that I think is cool.  Maybe I'm a "lomographer" at heart, I dunno?  I'm not worried that the ...
