On article The Canon that can: Canon EOS 80D Review (712 comments in total)
In reply to:

GaryJP: This is optimistic.

I'm using both Canon and Sony these days. I still prefer the colour of Canon. Too many Sony users are producing horrible fudgy looking low contrast pictures that look like they are shot on expired film. I can often spot a Sony image also by the predilection for green tinged faces and horrible over-modulation of blues, particularly from LED light sources (which DPReview never seems to want to own up to). And it is an aesthetic I try hard not to let creep into my work.

If the new 5D has better dynamic range and usable 4K, my A7RII and A7SII will be for sale. I get tired of struggling with the colours.

@Ethan, show it full profile, I don't like seeing details, we need BALANCE, a good photographer knows how to balance thing, not focus in details, it's a CHILD TOY, I can ask anyone to shoot using 70-200mm on people face and easily get good results

You buy Sony when you want TV, Walkman, Stereo, other than that don't do that, it's a crap, LOL

Now we know,
Canon used to photograph people for skin tone

Nikon are great to photograph aliens, then

rleue: My brother and I had the Nikon 300 series several years back. We longed for the updated version (now the D500). News all over the internet said it was coming soon...we waited and continued waiting and continued waiting. They came out with the 7000 series, which was NOT a pro version at all. So we still waited for the new Pro version to arrive. It never did...until now. Only YEARS too late! Years ago we sold all of our Nikon gear and never looked back. Now we are Olympus and Fuji users. We were so uninterested in Nikon when we heard that they had come out with the D5 and D500 we marveled and joked, "Does Nikon even make cameras anymore? We thought they were into toasters now!" The real fact is, they will continue to lose market share until they decide to make a real pro mirroless camera. They probably can do it...well, probably. At this point maybe they could just get Olympus, or Fuji to make a camera for them and they can put their name on it! Or, they could just TRY making toasters...

7D mark II will last approx 600 shots on a single battery,
70D will last more than 600 shots
I own both models and own several units,
they all working every week and battery performance vary from 3 bar to 2 bar performance
Fully sealed is only comparable to 1D series
and I use to owned 1D mark IV for 3 years

Don't tell me that those toys camera are comparable to 1D

We ain't talking about ergonomic handles that are important for pro's that gonna use it all day,
I know how it feels when handholding 1D mark IV for more than 8 hours a day and it feels solid and comfortable in my hand
Do the TOY gonna perform ergonomics like 1D ?

then enlightened me, BarnET,
which olympus and fuji are suitable for professional works ?
Do they equipped with large capacity battery or only lasts for 300 or more shots ?
We ain't talking about video use yet
That is what I am thinking when I almost decide to move to A7S
then I realized it is only a SMALL battery, that won't last long, anyway, it still a mirrorless, a TOY camera

DonDown: But isn't it a news reporter's camera?
I don't think it should be judged by the same criteria as a fine-art tool.

I don't think news reporter will use RAW instead of jpeg

I am confused,
Which fuji and olympus body that you mentioned are PRO body ?
I thoughts they all are just a TOY camera

jaykumarr: Engineering Manager: "we fixed the problem that was slowing down the focus by 50%"
Marketing Manager: "Our fix made focus faster by 50%" . So buy dock from us.

I think in engineering side, there is no way you could make lenses faster because the motor AF and movement parts inside got limitations
So, you are right, this is nonsense, they fixed the problems not making it faster

tongki: So white lens parade from Canon on sports soon will be replaced by G lenses from Sony, huh ?

Also, the battery capacity from "a toy" mirrorless is more than adequate for pros on their assignments ?

I don't like seeing people comparing mirrorless where the design is a small compact camera and to compare it with DSLR, 7D on this article, that doesn't make sense !

I don't, I know what Sony are capable of,
been using it on 2010

In reply to:

thx1138: In shots 31 and 32 the exposures are the same for f/1.4 and f/2, and then change as expected for the rest of the stopped down shots. What gives. is this not a true f/1.4 does it have a T-stop of f/2? Did you compare closely DoF at f/1.4 and f/2.

Rishi !!!

I don't trust Sony flash system,
I used HVL-58 system in the past,
It was the most stupid, strange, not dependable flash system I ever use
* no FEL and no one from Sony fans knows about this and they always mentioned how great and smart Sony flash system, I forgot what they called it
* hotshoe problem (taken from Minolta), tilt it up and down and it will become firing or not
* strange head rotation on HVL-58
* optical wireless sometimes and from 4 units there are some not firing and I am sure it is within range
* overheat problems and too quick
* battery drained AA very quick
* no indicator when overheat and shut down

I don't trust Sony system anymore

70D is succesfull market, yes
But 70D focus on stills with added video features is totally BS

I can see difference on stills output of 70D compare to 7D mark II and that is HUGE

It is clear that Canon is not focus on stills with 70D,
I need to see 80D results to see Canon really mean focus on stills with 80D

straylightrun: Sony has a full professional mirrorless system with bodies and lenses, yet none of their current flashes with af assist light are fully compatible with their own system. You would think if they went to all this trouble to develop a new system from scratch, somebody would have put a little more thought into the flash system.

Hi Rishi,
did you mentioned Sony to buy Yong Nuo to complete their flash department ?
We're gonna see Yong Nuo HVL series then, hahaha

Sony as always can buy Zeiss, Minolta, Tamron and maybe Yong Nuo to get their flash line up, hahaha

Indulis Bernsteins: These 3rd party flash manufacturers are crazy. They try to compete with Canon and Nikon, and maybe get a very small share of a big market. Why don't they start with Fujifilm and the other camera makers who DON'T already have a good selection of flashes, triggers etc. They would get almost 100% of the market, quickly. Then they could move on to Canon and Nikon.

It's a very crowded market,
Canon got dedicated line up and Yong Nuo, Godox already on the market with Phottix and others don't forget Metz with their quality

I don't see innovations with this nissin,
A small body with bigger head and still using AA ?

In reply to:

linzdoctor7d: Rishi is there any way you can ask Nissin if they are ever going to manufacture
the MF-18 Ring Flash in Sony mount? Sony sucks totally with anything that has to do with flash and I'm sure a lot of macro shooters who have a Sony camera would buy the MF-18 in a heart beat!

Since the day I use Sony A900 and their "innovative" HVL-58
That time I knew Sony is s*cks developing their flash and they still use Minolta mount and flash without significant improvement

I guess Sony happy with their awesome sensors and don't card about flash, they have high iso performance so they don't need flash

For me, I won't take a shot without flash,
99,9% of the shot I use flash
