Why does Adobe only have HALF support for all Canon cameras since EOS R ? (The last two years.)

Still no “Camera Matching” profiles for all new Canon cameras released after R/M50. That’s around 10 cameras now, and soon 2 more to come with the R5 and the R6. 😫

Hi DPR Staff. Can you please ask Adobe (when you get a chance) why they have stopped making "Camera Matching" profiles for new Canon cameras. (You know the Camera Standard, Camera Landscape etc.) Or maybe make an article about it ? No Camera Matching profiles for new Canon cameras since (and including) the RP. (That is at least 10 cameras.)

On article Sigma shows EF-M mount primes for Canon cameras at WPPI (205 comments in total)
In reply to:

sgangker: Will Sigma also consider M mount for their 19mm, 30mm and 60mm F2.8 series? Although they are only F2.8, they are optically sharp. And their sizes are more small and suitable for the M system.

Yes. I would also like that.

User2089854316: I suppose this is my next body
I already have a 50mm EF mount lens, what adapter is required?

It is $108 USD now on Amazon.com:
https://www.amazon.com/Canon-EOS-M-Mount-Adapter/dp/B008NF8CEK/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=ef-+eos+m&qid=1574859221&sr=8-2

Also a good alternative is the Meike MK-C-AF4 . I have both the Meike and the Original. I use Meike most. It is lighter and also has a tripod mount built-in. I couldn't find it on the US Amazon site, but here it is on the UK site:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/MeiKe-Automatic-Electronic-Focus-Adapter/dp/B00G34IQBW/ref=sr_1_fkmr3_1?keywords=MeiKe+Automatic+Electronic+Auto+Focus+AF+For+Canon+EF+EF-S&qid=1574860041&s=electronics&sr=1-1-fkmr3

Chippy99: Staggering that the comment "looks absolutely ridiculous with that silly EVF stuck on the top" is missing from the review.

No in-built EVF is *surely* one of the "cons"? Surely???

I mean honestly, they criticise no headphone socket and yet do not even mention no in-built EVF???

To many, a removable and interchangeable EVF is a positive. I think it is genious.

Lightright: Detachable parts simply don't make robust design. My brother accidentally dropped his Nex 5N with a viewfinder attached on a hard pavement, damaging it and the hot shoe. I dropped my A6000 in the same manner and it continues to work without problems and thankfully the screen protector of my LCD absorb the impact. All I did is buy another one to replace it. Canon would have made the view finder part of the unit especially for that price.

@ozturert ... That means that on every camera (from any manufacturer), if it has a built-in EVF, after a drop, nothing will work. 😉

cjb: Let's use this to examine Canon Sensor Tech:

22.3 x 14.9 mm = 6960 x 4640 pixels
Pixel pitch = 3.21 microns

When this chip set arrives on Full Frame, this extrapolates to
36 x 24 mm = 11215 x 7477 = 83.8 megapixels

Compared to EOS R
36 x 24 mm = 6720 x 4480
Pixel pitch = 5.36 microns

Compared to EOS 5DSr
36 x 24 mm = 8688 x 5792
Pixel pitch = 4.14 microns

This seems kind of like a nice possibility.

No issues with the battery here either. And also; I have 7 lenses and all of them are more than “decent”.

moimoi: Not sure about you guys, but I do no longer understand the dpreview rating. Sometime they say it ranked #1 (this article), and some other time the camera is ranked 3rd (recent article comparing mid range APS-C cameras). Shoot me ;-)

Well, this is the full review. So I would trust this one.

Marcelobtp: 32 MPX that look like 24 of the other systems.
Canon colors are shining on this one, the product itself is ergonomic and beautiful, but the lack of an integrated EVF and the price point to me are deal breakers.
same price but kitted with an EVF, and maybe we are talking...

... "The new Canon APS-C 32MP sensor is CLEARLY out-resolving the Fujifilm 26MP sensor in the X-T3 and X-T30 as well as the 24MP sensors in the Sony A6x00 series."...
Yes. It does !

It's a beauty. I love it !

NCB: Just been looking at UK prices. The Canon with a single lens is £120 more expensive than the Nikon with the single lens (£1119 versus £989), and only £80 cheaper than the Nikon double lens kit at £1199.

And that's with no viewfinder. I think the cheapest Canon viewfinder is the EVF-DC2 which is £229.

Seems to me the Nikon is considerably better value for money.

Re lenses, Nikon has no compact primes at the moment but there are two on the road-map which rather changes things. The Canon kit zoom doesn't have a great reputation; the Nikon zoom has yet to be properly assessed but reports and examples coming out are looking good. Nikon has the advantage of a shared mount with full frame.

My feeling is that it's too early to do this sort of comparison between the two cameras. I suspect Canon shooters will buy Canon and Nikon shooters Nikon.

Wrong. The EVF is included in the £1119 UK kit. You can also buy the body only (without lens and EVF), if you wish. That is around is £869.

T3: I don't know why hotshoe EVFs still exist for a camera at this price point (as opposed to a built-in). Hotshoe EVFs have the disadvantage of hogging up your hotshoe and sticking out like a sore thumb. Plus, because they stick out so much, cameras with external EVFs are more annoying to stick into your camera bag: the EVF catches on things. I used to use a hotshoe EVF for my Olympus m4/3 mirrorless body. At least that hotshoe EVF had a tilt-up feature. But Canon's does not. So I don't know why it exists, or at least why it exists without the tilt-up feature.

You have cameras with built-in non-removable EVF. You have cameras without EVF. And you have cameras with optional removable EVF. The last one does not need to have the EVF mounted. You can use it if you want. You can take it off if you want the camera to be compact or when you put the camera in your bag. I have found that the EVF is not needed most of the time, because the LCD is very good also in bright light and it is tiltable so it is easy to find an angle that works. I think it is genius. I sometimes carry it in a pocket in case I want to use it with a longer lens. That’s the only situation where I really use the EVF. That way my M6 II stays very compact, but it is still very fast to clip on the EVF if I want to use it. Often I just leave the EVF at home, because I know that I will not need it. And my camera is jacket pocketable. Best of two worlds.

If you want an EVF with tilt-up feature, that is possible too. Take a look at the EVF-DC1.

rmexpress22: I don't know if anyone that's commented so far actually owns one of these cameras. I have an M6 2.

IBIS - I've never had it, I personally don't need it, and when I do need it I use IS. I don't miss IS on the 22mm. IBIS wouldn't make my experience much better. If I had it, I'd use it but I won't go out of my way for IBIS.

EVF - I don't like EVF's and wouldn't use it anyway. I don't use a flash on the camera since I mainly use it for video and the EVF wouldn't hinder any functionality for me. If it was my main stills camera then I'd have a problem because I use flash almost all of the time. But it's not my main stills camera.

I know IBIS and EVF fans are very vocal but I'd guess most of them would never buy this camera even if it had built-in EVF or IBIS. But the DR craze has died down, so onto the next gripe, I suppose.

For the rest of us that just want a camera that performs well, is easy to use, and has good IQ, the M6 2 is really good.

1. R mini? What is that?. Btw. The RF lenses are not exactly compact (nor cheap).

2. M60? You don't like dials ? l just love the dials on the M6 II.

If you don't need it with the EOS M (and 18-55), you will not need it with an EOS M6 II either. So you don't have to fumble with something you don't need. Leave it in your bag (or pocket or home) as a backup for situations where your EOS M (or M6 II without EVF) is not usable. That can't be very often, because the LCD is very very good on the M6 II and it is tiltable so you can always find an usable angle to shade for bright light. Or don't buy the optional EVF at all. I'm using the M6 II on many trips and hiking without the EVF and without any problems. And why do you want the EVF on on overcrowded metro trains? I can't see any reason to do that. Do you want to leave a pop-up evf also popped up on such places? Put it in you pocket. It is easy. (I said it before, it wouldn't break off anyway. It is though.)

I would never buy a Aps-c with pop-up or permanent EVF hump. In just love the M6 II . It's perfect. :)

I like the EVF-DC2 much better. It is much better in use. I just keep the evf in a pocket most of the time (also during transport). It is very fast to clip on/off when you want to use it and when you are finished. I never have it on during transport, because I like to have the camera compact and seldom use an evf. But it is very solid and it will not “break off” during transport as you say, even if you choose to do so. But I see no reason to have it on during transport. Do you also want to have a pop-up EVF popped up under transport? I don’t think so. I think that is even more likely to break off.
Edit: I also like the built-in and tiltable flash. I would never exchange that for a flimsy pop-up EVF.

To me, the optional EVF is genius. You can put it on when/if you want to use it and remove it when you want the camera to be more compact and jacket pocketable. I find I don't really need it, even in bright sunshine, because the LCD is very very good. The only times I use the EVF is when tracking with a tele lens. That makes it a little easier. So I will choose a removable EVF any day over a hump that can't be removed and that I don't need.

NJOceanView: No snark here, I promise, but I was pleased to see so many positive words about the Canon. There were some similar accolades about the 90D. It's nice to read.

That being said (and to show I'm not biased), I'd probably grab the Nikon if I were a beginner getting a kit for walkaround purposes simply because of the built-in EVF. On the other hand, 50% increase in resolution can come in handy sometimes.

@LookintotheMirrorlessoften
Correct. It's an area calculation. An image (and also the sensor) is an area, not a line. (It has 2 dimensions.)

TFD: How many ways can you make ugly. Canon viewfinder glued on top. Nikon oversized mount with a stub lens.

If they wanted to sell mirorless cameras they should build one with the same flange to sensor distance as their mirrored cameras, All their existing lenses would work without adapters which would outweigh a bigger size.

No, the Canon EVF is NOT glued on. The Nikon is glued on.

Ixoye: Canon with the EVF looks cool.

I can see the lcd without any problems, even on a bright day. I never really need an EVF, but it can be nice to have and I sometimes use it for tracking with a tele lens. But I like a compact camera, so the EVF stays in a pocket for the most. It is very fast to clip on/off the few times I want to use it. So my camera stays compact most of the time. (And without a permanent EVF hump, it ‘s even jacket pocketable.) Best of both worlds.
