    JurijTurnsek got a reaction from IronFilm in Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless talk hots up   
    Canikon had a great naming scheme of the number of digits indicating the price/feature bracket. With the M series that naming scheme went full retard, but is now slowly coalescing towards the same principle (but it took them many iterations to get there). Then they start the R line the same way.
    On the other hand, Nikon has a clear naming convention for their Z line, as does Sony and everyone else. Each model is properly named, differentiated and placed in the product line. It makes sense to assure the consumer that you are going to maintain different models for different uses and just upgrade them every few years - one for max resolution, one do-it-all basic model and a sports model etc. Now try to remember the confused M line models and try to extrapolate any sensible model strategy for the future.
    As a side note - Sony has been inconsistent in their APS-C (NEX) line naming as well - they have a much more consistent approach in their FF line.

    What a substantial upgrade! Kudos to Fuji - the new sensor makes me hopeful for the new Sony APS-C flagship. Overall there isn't much to improve on the XT line and the customization options are ridicules.

    Drone cameras are a category unto their own, because they have the best possible heat dissipation (which will never be replicated in a handheld camera).
    However, I would not be surprised if DJI surprised us with a serious mirrorless entry in the future.

    It’s a law of nature of marketing a new product: the less quality you are offering the more noise you have to make. It’s as simple as this.
    The Pharmaceutical Industrie is the best proof for this law. New drugs, being as ineffective as the previous generation, have to pushed hard,
    e.g. on one week events for the  so called oppinion leaders in the Carribean, Hawaii and locations like this, of course with spouses.           
    An invitation to Hawaii for the so called "camera journalists" (unfortunately only 2 days, no spouses) tells me that the new product is not worth considering at all.

    What are you guys filming that makes S35 so redundant? I think it's a great format, you can have smaller, lighter lenses, but still get very shallow DOF.

    I am still firm APS-C believer - best compromise between size, IQ, price and DOF capabilities. FF is just too expensive and too big. All these FF rumors have me wondering, who has the money for this stuff (professionals aside)? Hopefully, Sony and Fuji will keep the flame alive and Sony won't just focus everything on their FF efforts.

    Go to DXOMark website and look at T stop ratings for f1.2 and f1.4 lenses and be amazed at the marketing mumbo jumbo. Also, what good is light if it is almost completely OOF? Lens designs have matured to the point that most high end primes are excellent wide open. No more stopping down that f1.2 lens to get decent sharpness etc.

    I saw this at B&Hphoto today and it pretty much sums up why Canon will dominate in mirrorless....

    You see it lists the top 3 'best sellers' in FE lenses.
    Never mind that the 28-75 2.8 is supposed to be plasticky, the 50 1.8 is supposed to be horrible and the 85 1.8 isnt supposed to have great bokeh. At the end of the day consumers 'buy value/cheap'. The same applies to APSC where Fuji offers the 'quality/expensive product' but where its market share is so low nobody actually knows what it is. While Canon with minimal efforts is making great inroads. Fuji is releasing an 'amazing' US$6,000 200mm F2' while Canon doesnt sell an EOS-M lens over US$500. Look there is always a market for high end, ground breaking, mtf chart lenses which are inevitably very expensive - but it just isnt a very big one.
    All the mirrorless manufacturers are going relentlessly upmarket leaving a large gaping hole for Canon to walk through.
    You see the great achievement of Nikon and Sony in FF mirrorless is to create fabulous high tech FF mirrorless at 'relatively affordable' price of under US$2,000. But it is a complete waste of time if even the most basic of your lenses are over US$500 a pop. Sure Sony has now 'eventually' got a few affordable lenses but there simply arent many (especially compared to Canon and Nikon DSLRs.) Both Sony and Nikon are absorbed with huge amounts of hubris - Nikon bringing out a US$6,000 58 0.95 with manual focus  (before a basic long zoom) and Sony is promoting its lightweight, 3kg, US$12,000 400 2.8.....
    So in all likelihood Canon will enter the FF mirrorless market with a totally underwhelming camera, with lenses that are uninspiring (but you wont have to have to make the excuse they look good value against Leica.) And much to everyone's irritation but no surprise they will walk away with the market

    I cannot be bothered to look for any statistics, but I doubt Nikon or anyone else for that matter lost any sales, because they didn't sell f1.2 or f0.95 AF lenses. These are such niche products, it's ridicules. DOF is simply to shallow to be used often and f1.4 is very comparable.

    If 4K has DPAF and no crop, this thing will destroy Sony/Nikon sales, no doubt. And because it is Canon, 3rd party lens producers will all speed up development of lenses for it.
    We all know Canon can do it (though the mount is still a mystery), but hasn't done it so far, because they are very careful at cannibalizing their existing models.

    Any environmentalist worth his/her salt would immediately point out to his dislike of public transportation. His vision is the same car-centric gridlocked cities, but with electric vehicles. So, I wish him a lot of success, but the is not a true visionary, just a capitalist that is driving the current trends. He also has made some ridicules comments regarding media, which is worrisome.
    Tesla is a bit like Sony - very innovative, but once the established forces pick up on the tech, they will drown it out simply with their manufacturing might and retail presence.

    JurijTurnsek got a reaction from BenEricson in Spin camera 360 to follow a kickflip   
    If you ever done a trick on a skateboard, timing is everything. A single flatground trick lasts less that a second and the duration of the clip.
    The degraded IQ (zoomed in?) and Ty Evans' general affliction of all new gear, I would imagine he used a Phantom camera. Spinning that beast with exactly the same speed as the skateboard, triggering the spin at the exact same moment (we are talking miliseconds here), while nailing the manual focus seems highly improbably.
    There is the 1% chance it was done this way, just because a professional skateboarder would be able to a few hundred takes with such a basic trick if needed.

    TIL that you are a professional photographer (the one's that matter, anyway) if you shoot meaningless sports spectacles, where you basically spray and pray for two hours and then brag about the cost of your telephoto lenses.
    Maybe we should ask some wedding photographers that might even like a lighter, smaller body, since they handle their cams for many more hours per working day. Or maybe there are different tools for different jobs? Sports photographers already have "the perfect tools", so why are you complaining about a product that could be heaven-sent for most and just not big enough for you?

    Either we are talking at cross purposes or you are missing my point completely.
    I think that it would be totally 'wrong' and 'incredibly inadvisable' for mirrorless camera manufacturers to design or redesign their cameras based on the 'perceived ergonomics of pro photographers'. Pro photogs only make up around 2% of ILC camera buyers and the other 98% dont have the same habits. In the same vein, you talk about 'buttons and dials' needing to be bigger while smartphone users (99% of photographers) dont actually use them at all.
    It seems 'pro photogs' want mirrorless companies to build cameras that closely resemble 'DSLRs'. Does this make sense? Since 2012 DSLR sales have halved in value. Since 2012 mirrorless ILC sales have increased 77% in value. So it literally makes no sense at all for 'pros' to keep telling mirrorless camera companies to go copy a failing business strategy. It should be 'pretty obvious' that mirrorless cameras are succeeding because they are 'different' from DSLRs not because they are striving to be the 'same'.

    Some of us with smaller hands actually like the size of the A7 series of cameras. Before to get one of the higher end models you had to get some large and even mid range DSLRS feel massive and awkward. You can make the A7 a big larger with the grip but it's hard to make a camera smaller than it already is. 
    It's great to finally have some different size options available across the market, it's highly unlikely there will ever be a one size fits all camera unless it's modular.

    Panasonic and Olympus are hard proof that 4K processing can be a non-issue even in small bodies (as was Samsung with NX500). This is proprietary know-how and that is why Fuji, Sony, Canon and Nikon struggle with their implementation. When one brand figures it out, they don't go rushing to the competition to share their knowledge. And the issue lies with processing power and the heat generated from CPU and not so much the sensor - a hot sensor will only read more noise, but will not melt the whole camera body.
