Okwy Ugonweze: I strongly believe that this is a response to Godox, who are currently dealing profoto strong blows with the AD600 series.

Dmatrix, Quantum flash is expensive in the era
and now,
Godox do made a lot of progress

DesmondD: We have to remember that there are many variable involved - there are times when 'natural light' doesn't look amazing and with skill you can create something with flash that looks like good natural light - it would be good to see examples of photos that 'had to be taken' [wedding situation] where just the natural light looks good compared to where the image 'needs help' with flash. Also as with Canon vs Nikon, pc vs Mac etc. you don't have to pick sides between the two. Natural light and flash situations are just tools that the professional uses to create great images with depending on the situation while amateurs think they have to "pick a side" and only use one while arguing against the other.

isn't it would be great when you get the best natural light situation and beautifull subject get lights by your external flash (or wireless), the best of both world
flash can correct many situations, if you don't have flash, you can not do anything to correct it (unless photoshoper)

tongki: You can take "a good shot" with a cheap lens and body with flash compare to using an expensive body and lenses without flash

Hi DesmonD that's what I meant, if you do know how to use flash, that will be benefit rather than "just using" expensive lenses and body", problem is, many excuses saying about being natural light while the truth is, they don't know how to use flash
Sometimes, just for fun, using kit lens and cheap body using flash, the results still acceptable, while this might not be possible to achieved only by using expensive lenses and expensive body without flash

Canon will learned that their flash line up is GARBAGE by using AA batteries !

If yes, thats great

Other thing is,

DouglasGottlieb: Hey DPR: please speculate:

Are the SL2 and 6D2 further evidence that no Canon EF mount mirror less is coming or just stop gaps? Because while these seem like nice cameras, they also seem like they occupy the same space.

I dont see 6D2 is an upgrade

I use 7D2 and it is way more better and pro, look at the silly dial on new 6D2, thats a TOY !!!

this video is not scientific at all,
what's the point doing this ?

A bunch of photographer on dpreview necessary watch this thing, really ?

Does it related to what photographer do, actually ?

I think dpreview should think more about showing this "stupid" video on their site

It's like seeing youtube, destroying iPhone, brand new Samsung into pieces,
using bullet, drown it into deep, etc etc,
so, Apple and Samsung made the smartphone for that purpose, REALLY ???

We ought to see camera performance, or manufacture, etc,
not stupid things like this

I got better idea !

How about,
the people on the making get shot by the waterjet and captured in frames,
show it here in dpreview and we will rate the effort in making those image !

In reply to:

Dervast: naive question from a guy that never shot video (and quite probably will not). I have been looking for sometime in the European market a tripod with a small footprint to hold a bare flash or a flash with a small modifier.
Would a monopod with such a foot being able to work as a light stand as well? Of course it is not gonna be super stable. Sometimes I need to move fast my flashgun and have it at specific height. For example at a wedding. Would that work or not? What do you think?

Manfrotto do have 682B series,
it has 3 small foot that can be reversible as normal monopod

I got 3 of it and 1 of it modified into fluid base for video purposes

tongki: I can understand astrophotography
But can not accept ASTROPHOTOGRAPHERS terms

What the hell is that ?
An astrophotographer ???

I can accept if photos they produced labelled as
XXX labs taken but not an astrophotographer took these photo

Astronomy photographer ?
Because their purpose to study outer space,
they did not create ART, it is not an art,
it is output of a system to examine
If you think that way

Then doctor using endoscopy can be called endoscopygrapher also ?

Now isn't that fun?

After 5D mark IV it should be 5DX

1D mark IV replacement is 1DX

interesting part is,
if this is only duplicates eye-fi, than Canon definitely STUPID

From what I see that they did not put storage on this new card,
It might be good guessing that this will create new selectable menu
like we found on 6D, 70D and 80D,
if that's the case, I will buy this card

Other than that,
I agree with others comments, ANOTHER STUPIDITY from Canon

Fujica: The RX600 had a short lifetime.
About 2 years and now already a mark 2 version

for quality and consistency, YES
for recycle time, you need to modify or using external power
But, still, for speedlite models is still a speedlite
