On Canon announces EOS C100 Mark II article (205 comments in total)

Maybe the EOS C100 Mark III will have DCI Cinema 4K like the Panasonic GH4, Samsung NX1 and $299 OnePlus One in 2020 . Same story for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II.

Joe Ogiba: No 4K is a showstopper for me. I might get the new waterproof 4K Verizon Sony Xperia Z3v when my 2 year contract expires for my HTC Droid DNA in January. It also has wireless charging and 128GB Micro SDXC support.

OMG are you for real ? 4K is outdated ? What planet are you on ? The $349 64GB 5.5" 4K OnePlus One is $500 less than the $849 64GB iPhone 6 plus and shoots both 4K UHD and DCI Cinema 4K (4096x2160).

On Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH4 Review preview (420 comments in total)
In reply to:

peevee1: 5-axis IBIS and OSPDAF working with all AF lenses and not just some Panasonic m43s and it would be almost perfect.

I tested IBIS on my Pentax K-7 in 2009 and it made a clicking noise in video mode. Here are two examples :

I use OIS on my 100-300mm Panasonic on my GH4 in 4K UHD mode and it works great.

The 42.5mm F1.2 Leica OIS also works great in 4K UHD mode.

The stills I get from my GH4 4K videos are great looking and if I need images for 36x48" prints I use my A7r .

If this had a micro SDXC slot it would be my choice but I think I will go with the new 4K Sony Z3v after my Verizon contract expires Jan 13 2014 on my HTC Droid DNA.

On Tiny fps1000 high-speed camera boasts 18,500fps article (137 comments in total)

18,500 fps at a useless 64x64px size or 1080p @ 200fps and 2560x2048 @ 75ps is not a big deal today since there are 4K camcorders like the Panasonic HC-X1000 that shoots 4K UHD 3840x2160p @ 60fps on low cost SDXC cards. The Sony camera in the iPhone 6 costs $16.50 and does 720p @ 240fps vs the FPS Gold's 720p @290fps. I guess the sweet spot would be the FPS Platinum with 720p @ 550fps for slow motion fans.

It looks like Canon opened a can of worms with this ad campaign.

In reply to:

Menneisyys: Hope the stabilization can be disabled via the API so that third-party apps can offer the ability to shoot tripod video w/o stabilization. (I can't check this now as I'm posting from another Mac of mine, running an older version of OS X with Xcode 5.1.1 only.) I can't remember one from the times I've written my own manual, iOS8-only, open source camera app (see http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=19221303 ).

I really hope Apple didn't mess up this, unlike RAW support (which is still painfully missing) or access to the HDR / pano modes of the stock Camera client from third party apps.

@Pelasdf Were did I say anything about suggesting OnePlusOne for photo ? For $349 there is nothing close to it for cinema 4K 4096x2160 video. Even the top of the line Blackmagic URSA does not have DCI cinema 4K mode. Now who is retarded.

fatdeeman: So basically your phone is the photographer and you are just an automated tripod and shutter presser?

I just can't wait for all the smug people on flickr and facebook getting thousands of comments and likes.

And most are so clueless they don't even know how to hold their smartphone.

On Photoshop comes to Chrome OS in limited beta article (95 comments in total)
In reply to:

falconeyes: This is an illborn and stupid project.

cf. http://edex.adobe.com/projectphotoshopstreaming/faq for details.

PS will still run locally. Except it now needs many trips to the web to install properly, can't print and benefit from fast local storage, and suffers from performance hits due to the virtual environment it is boxed into.

Now, dear CC subscribers, you get a glimpse of how your monthly Adotax payment is spent for something else.

Linux has the same 1% market share as ten years ago so there is zero chance of Photoshop for Linux. BTW don't Linux fanboys say Gimp is as good as Photoshop and it's free ?

On Sony shows off upcoming full-frame lenses at Photokina article (324 comments in total)
In reply to:

Chillbert: As a NEX user, am I just paranoid or is Sony basically giving up on developing any more small lightweight E-mount lenses for APS-C size cameras? They seem to be so far behind Fujifilm in terms of lens range and performance, and their roadmap is all bigger FE lenses.

FE lenses are E mount lenses . B&H shows 62 APS-C E mount and 11 full frame E mount lenses and that is much more than Fuji.

The 4K OnePlus One beats it for video for $500 less.
64GB 6 Plus $849
64GB 4K OnePlus One $349

It looks like the only players today with advanced cameras with 4K today are Samsung, Panasonic and Sony. Maybe by 2020 Canon will put 4K in the 7D Mark III.

In reply to:

Jefftan: the 30X zoom on small sensor compact is just a waste of money in my opinion

try this, get a NEX-3N, put in a pancake lens like the E-mount 20mm, than using the in camera digital zoom (or even better turn off all NR in RAW conversion) ,than crop out the central area having the same scene as a 30X zoom image (remember to switch to central focus)

try it and you will be surprised, the resulting pic will be as least as good as from 30X small sensor compact if not better

A 30x pocket size P&S is much better for the average consumer than jumping through hoops shooting RAW with the NEX-3N and cropping or using digital zoom. I have the 3N, A7r, GH4 etc and they would never replace a 30X pocket size camera for someone who is shooting the kids at the park , Disney World etc.

Mirrorless point and shoot has a 90% market share . All smartphones have point and shoot cameras built in like the new Panasonic CM1 with 1 " sensor and OnePlus One that has a 13mp sensor that shoots both 4K UHD @30fps and DCI Cinema 4K 4096x2160 @ 24fps and only costs $349 for the 64GB version. The only DSLR that shoots 4K is the Canon 1D C but there are many mirrorless that shoot 4K like the new Samsung APS-C NX-1 and m4/3rd Panasonic LX-100.
