Sony has raised their prices a lot to offer them lowered just a little. Effectively a price increase. Not sure if this is Sony greed or if they are struggling.

Best part of this article is to see Kai. I was here before he was even a thought. He has to be one of your greatest gifts and it is a real blessing to see him and already staking out his involvement in his interests. Thumbs up and wonderful memories. Thank you Phil for some amazing great memories and history.

Peter Gregg: Can you record to an external recorder (10 bit mode) and still control the camera remotely?
Would like to know what happens in this situation on the GH5:
1. Turn on the HDMI 4:2:2 in the REC menu and set to 10 bit (GH4 has 8 or 10 bit choices).
2. Plug in an HDMI cable and make it live (an Atomos, and turn it).
3. Try and turn WiFi on now, to control the camera thru your iPad (Smart device). The GH4 will not allow the WiFi to activate with a live external microHDMI cable and a 10bit setting. WiFi will not turn on in that case.

Got excited and went to try it immediately :) The GH4 camera reverts back to an 8 bit feed when I check the menu and the 10 bit is grayed out. I have the Atomos Flame, wonder if that makes a difference. But I did get a 4K feed and WiFi using your way.

These are pretty stunning images. Can't wait for a head to head with the other guy.

Did I read that right - shooting a wedding, taking a burst of shots, and then turning your camera OFF??? Wow. And further, you already do this "trick" with your DSLRs. You lost all my respect, what a terrible thing to do to a bride.

Yayeee - Can has become the new "old General motors". Basically is never give them what they want and tell them how much you will love it anyway lol.
So what is wrong with this camera? Basically the Panasonic GH4 and Samsung NX1 do everything better and 2/3rd's lower price. This camera adds 5 axis stabilization, something you would have to have in your lens.

What would have been a better choice would be to have put 4K recording in the 7D Mark II, or if you wanted to compete at the lower price, put it in a new 70D Mark II.

Then you have the LX100 and FZ1000 from Panasonic. Both fixed lens stabilized 4K recording. The LX100 has a bigger sensor to boot and is a MUCH smaller camera.

Canon has a problem with paranoia. They are deathly afraid to give anything of value in a lower priced camera. Their marketing department is seriously flawed in their ability to recognize/identify demographic divisions.

This camera is a disappointment. Canon is right, many people do not know better.

Hello - no 4D Autofocus info? What cameras? It is firmware updatable? New cameras only?

What a difference a day makes. The new images are representative of what I expect - and was hoping for - from this lens. It is pro level and the results certainly look like it. It seems on par in quality with the 85L II by eyeballing these images. Having both lenses in hand would confirm it, or show the deficiencies. The advantage of the 4/3 system is equal light as full frame with a little deeper range in depth of field. For most folks this is an advantage making full frame a disadvantage because of the razor thin depth of field. For most purposes this is a big plus, except for those that are looking for an ultra thin range in their DOF envelope.

The processing on these shots is poor. I have a hard time believing these images are representative of what this lens can do. If they are, then it is disappointing. I shoot heavily with the 25mm 1.4 and the images are absolutely beautiful.

Don't forget lighting inside these venues can be pretty poor. I would like to see some shots from some people who can control the image process from beginning to the final image display some shots. The contrast is way too hot in some images and the clarity seems to have a a veil over it. I shoot EM-1 and GH3 and if I returned and displayed shots like these to my clients it would be pretty poor.

Those folks on a full frame campaign are just bloviating. The size of the sensor or the number of megapixels will have no effect on image quality for images displayed on the web like these. I shoot 800e in my bag too, and the client would have a hard time telling what came from what camera.

According to the Canon web site, the C100 uses its single sensor as if it were 3 sensors. "The EOS C100 captures Red, Green, and Blue channels independently for Full HD 1920x1080 video. The resulting picture features the color and image quality of a three-chip camera with a single sensor. The optimized pixel count allows the camera to avoid additive processing as a result of skipping lines during capture; sensor sensitivity is maintained and aliasing or other degradation of the image is prevented."

At 2MP per color this uses 6MP leaving 2MP free for other duties on its 8.3 MP sensor. With 2 million pixels available, they may have remapped the pixels so the unused pixels can be the other half of the "Dual Pixel Technology".

They never said how many pixels would participate in the DPT focusing abilities upgrade. The interesting question is what other camera sensors can address individual pixel points in a way to reassign what they do? Not only for Canon, but other companies too.

These images are surprisingly good. High ISO with the kit style lens delivers very usable pictures and can easily be made even better. I am really surprised the high ISO did this well. I have the OMD and the GH3, and these ISO 12800 and 25600 ISO pictures are much better. An this is only from JPG? if you can handle LightRoom like a master, the final images will be even better. If you have a few tricks up your sleeve than these images look like they can take on a larger sensor camera with ease. Well done.

How do you know if a lens like this will work on Canon's new 70D. Canon has list of "approved" lenses for a reason. With 3rd party lenses work on the new Canon 70D?
