Najinsky: Always wondered if Autumn was such a difficult word for our American cousins to use, why dont they simply call the other seasons, Cold, Grow and Hot?

"Spring" is just as silly of a term as "Fall". Both describe actions, "Spring of the Leaf and fall of the leaf". Autumn is based off the Autumnal Equinox, which is derived from the latin word autumnus. so surely if we want to be proper, we should call it vern and autumn.

Looks like a pretty solid compact from the samples provided.

GRUBERND: sorry for your loss.
not the camera, but what was on the card inside.
well, since this will be the times with the least amount of recorded memories that will survive a few generations you were a trendsetter by losing them right away..

We make 45,000x more images than previous generations. So even if we lose 99% of them, most will have more surviving images than their grandpa did.

It's not difficult, it's just what we heard most growing up.

Keyless keyboards are murder on your fingers and tendons. You need the tactile feedback and cushioning of the key mechanism or RSI injuries are mere hours away with even light typing.

Blackmagic has several models with Super35 sensors with global shutter for $3-7k. Not quite $400, but closer to $400 than it is to $35k

tkbslc: So in all seriousness, how does this differ from the $7k BlackMagic URSA 4.6k in EF mount?

@tr573 - Yeah, I was just curious if it was something obvious. The spec sheets read about the same.

Mikael Risedal: Put Canon in a sensor perspective, Canon has 4-5 procent of the market world wide , Sony has 40 procent and even more in mobile phones

I'd love to see your sources. Canon uses mostly their own sensors and they sold over 40% of all cameras last year (excluding phones) according to IDC. That would make it hard to be 5% in sensor production for cameras.

If you include phones, then yeah, sony sells tens of millions of sensors there, while Canon sells none. So I might believe 40% including phones.

chile7236: What US carriers carry Huawei? Love my nexus 6p...wpuldng2mind adding another down the road.

They are typically sold unlocked through regular online retailers, and support GSM carriers (so ATT and T-Mobile)

Check out the newly released Honor 8. I don't think this one is in the US yet.

ttran88: Anyone complaining about 5dmk4 crappy video should put money where their mouth is and buy this beast.

Sony F5 doesn't have a global shutter and requires an $5k external recorder pack to do 4K. Sony F55 is the comparable product to this Canon, and it is $30K on discount.

Mikael Risedal: congratulation Canon, it took you about 8 years to discover/ and fix the read out noise from your sensors , and you are not even close to Sony

"Not even close to Sony"

Really? Because based on the above crops it looks like they are within 1/2 a stop.

mosc: What's the working distance?

MFD is listed at 160mm, and this is measured from the sensor plane. So the working distance is 160mm, minus the length of the lens at full extension, minus the distance from rear element to sensor.

So with all that in mind, I'm guessing the working distance is going to be VERY small.

Niala2: Another opportunity for me to say I wish for a
G-Master (max.) 70mm f1.2 :-)

( Leica had the Leitz 75mm Summilux f/1.4)

Why 70? Why not 65 or 75? Why not 81? Why not 77? At some point you have to realize the difference makes no difference. As I said, 70 and 85mm can be used for the same kinds of shots. No need to lust over lenses that won't change your photos.

They already made an 85mm f1.4 which can be used for the same shots.

Expat Nomad: $550 in Canada. I was hoping for a bit less, but such is life with the Canadian peso these days.

We pay 5-10% sales tax, too (and we don't get health insurance out of the deal).
