Is this not the same thing as Nightmode?? Google stealing from Apple and doing a deep dive on Apple technology which is just a rip off of the old school image stacking techniques that have been in Photoshop for ages. And yet the goofs are acting like they invented something....

whitelens: Canon announced the development of the R3!
Why?
Because Canon is smarter than their hot headed fans here.
Canon knows that the R5 is no competition to the A1!
So please wait a little longer and maybe Canon will have a camera that comes close to competing with the A1 and maybe even beat it in anything essential other than price!
If not, you might have to wait for the R1!

LOL. Nah, Canon has released the EOS R3 because their standards are higher than what they delivered with the R5. The R5 is great but it is flawed in some ways like with overheating in video shooting at 8k. The R3 will probably dispense with that silliness.

luigibozi: It's not Sony's mirrorless, interchangeable etc. flagship camera,
it's the flagship camera.
Flagship for the other brands too, I mean. (Figuratively, of course)

Yeah, I hate to admit it, but it does look like Canon and Nikon got out flag shipped. Really sad. I guess we can hope that the EOS R3 can restore order in the universe.

Pretty cool. Now the colors are a mess but hey, it's still cool. I guess they forgot to white balance.

Sony doing this is the first I have heard of a large company getting into building their own drones. Till now it has been mostly startups and fly-by-night deals, aside from DJI, who is obviously the largest player in the drone market. Now, if you ask me Tesla would be a prime candidate for a drone just because A, it would be an awesome car accessory, and B, they have the self guidance tech and sensor arrays that could make it work. Plus, if they bundle the drone with the car then it can go bigger and better because it becomes a 5k add on to a 100k vehicle... If I was Elon Musk I would totally be building Tesla's with a drone launching/recharging slot. Imagine you hit a button and the drone ejects and lifts off then starts feeding a visual onto the main screen in the car? Then you hit a return button and it parks itself and locks in for more driving. Anyway, a guy can dream I guess.

Does this mean they will finally change the UI of Photoshop?

I will wait for the 27" model. It will most likely have a 64GB RAM option and *fingers crossed* a bigger CPU.

bloodreyna: So the goal with this lens, and its DUAL nano USM motors is apparently to acquire perfect focus in any situation, then, use a second dial they call SA Control to ensure that the image is never actually IN FOCUS.... Now I know exactly what Bob Dylan meant when he sang that the times they are a-changin. Yes new times indeed, a time of expensive lenses that intentionally do not acquire focus, as if I could not do this on my own for a lot less money.

It is a world filled with desperation. Truth

(unknown member): Its a shame they went with the 12MP sensor. To my eyes less detail and maybe a little more noise at many higher ISOs. No ability to crop, zoom, center and stabilize while maintaining 4K resolution either. They also left out a lot of features found on other hybrids like the S1 which is weird for a more expensive video-centric camera.

btw, I see people mentioning the Black Magic cameras. Some come with a bright 5 inch LCD which saves you from buying an external record just to view what you are shooting. This camera has no VF and a lackluster LCD, so paying extra for eternal LCD is kind of mandatory.

@bloodlmt, the problem is if you are using post stabilized gyro data you will not get the full 4k resolution... bummer! But it should be great for 1080p! Yeah a really nice 1080p camera, and 1080p is still a great resolution to be using for like cellphones. Of course my DJI Osmo Pocket will shoot 4k stabilized on a gyro and I paid $299 for it... I mean apples and oranges though right? But yeah, amateurs will def. want to look at this Sony!

This was Canon's reality forever. They make one mistake and the whole world goes bonkers. Same is now true for Sony... inferior rear screens??? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEM!!! And on and on it shall go like this around in circles for eternity.

So does Canon. I don't know if they use them in their cameras but they make some of the finest LCD's on the planet.

Gesture: Don't the EVF (mirrorless) cameras have more power demands than OVF ones.
How are the OEMs - Canon and Nikon essentially - handling this.

Obliviously the battery is highly, highly important to the function of the camera system. Now, is it a fact that these battery can be replaced with a duplicate that is 50x longer lasting??? Yes. What does it mean when I say that dear sirs? I'll tell you, it means that the battery life, as you see it, is irrelevant. Now, one camera gets 350 shots, one gets 550, one gets 750. Ok then, but these batteries are basically as good as a AA alkaline battery that has been the standard for 30-40 years now. They really are only marginally improved over that at the very best. If we use a more modern battery technology in any of these cameras you're talking about 10, 20, maybe even 100 times longer lasting batteries. Then your formerly 350 shot loser camera is suddenly a 50,000 shot beast. Sure the 750 shot camera is now a 100,000 shot beast, but does 50k vs 100k really matter? Nope. You're talking about charging one of them every month and charging the other every couple of months.

It seems pretty amazing, now, it is an R3 so yes we all wonder "what is the R1 gonna be". There are two possibilities there. Either the R1 ends up being an insane game ending perfection, or it ends up being the R3 with a higher frame rate.

Greg OH: Between this and the 85/1.2 with Defocus Smoothing, Canon's playing hard for the portraiture market.

@Vignes Yeah Sigma has a few interesting lenses that would be nice on RF mount. But they are also missing a real trinity style wide angle zoom like a 16-35mm f/2.8. If they had the trinity on RF that would shake things up a bit. The rumor is the new 24-70mm is pretty good.

Reactive: How disappointing - yet another ultra-expensive body (assuming it will be above R5) for pros only. Have Canon completely forgotten the millions of xxxD / xxD / 7D "ordinary" customers? You'd think with the summer holiday season not far away, and people eager to get outdoors again, they'd be announcing a range of consumer R700 / R70 / R7 products. It's a shame if there's so liitle profit left in that segment that Canon has decided to shut down photography for the masses.

I hate my iphone 11 it takes some ugly pictures. Convenient ok fine but do I ever look at my pictures??? No. Boring flat garbage. Theoretically a small camera and lens should be easier but they have made it into the hardest thing in the world.... Most of the world is “fine” with it because theyre ignorant know nothing goofs whose sole purpose in life is to feed the few people who actually do something useful around here.

Thoughts R Us: Here's a good explanation of what this lens is all about:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDcT8GawJBs

Sure it's from Canon Europe but it still explains well the intentions behind the lens and its features.

I don't know about you but I can't for the life of me figure out a use for a lens dial that makes the image go out of focus??? I guess this is some kind of artsy BS? Was using a manual focus lens not good enough? Now the process is, acquire perfect focus, then ruin it with another control that isn't even related to focusing... Wow, a new and more advanced way to make a bad picture. I can imagine explaining this one to a 24 year old bride... Yeah, so this one is blurry because, um, ART. I know that it bothers you but it is actually an advanced feature.... oh wait hey where are you going???? HEY!!! ITS SPHERICAL ABERRATION DOESNT THAT SOUND COOL??? HEY!!!! *SLAMS DOOR IN FACE*....

BTW the SA "control" is a lame duck feature. I predict nobody uses it. Lock it at 0 and pretend it doesn't exist. Otherwise a nice lens but no idea what they were thinking with SA control when it throws the subject so completely out of focus as well.

Nobody believes anything these Youtube people have to say anymore. In particular Peter McKinnon who is an absolute fail. Why are Canon's "Ambassador's" and "Explorers of Light" so universally pathetic? They should fire the whole lot and start over.
