This guy doesn't know what he's going on about most of the time.
At the "6:20" mark he says that pro's like to intimidate other photographers that they use by using the "big cameras" please, if you are a pro photographer you care more about the photograph than the gear. Any good photographer will say it's not the camera is the person behind it. The only ones that care are the ones that know nothing about photography and they are the ones you don't listen too.
Even tho it's not in his list, shot in kelvin, does he mean set custom white balance? That’s what I am guessing he's talking about. I can set any custom WB (normally measured in kelvin) on my 6D. I'm sure my 10D could do it and I defiantly knew that the 40D could.
Number 1, the price. Looking at local NZ pricing the cameras are just the same price if not more than the 6D when I brought that new. Lenses aren't that much cheaper. For where he lives it could be cheaper so that's fine.
2, weight. I don't have a problem with the 6D. I could shoot for hours with the camera. I don't make money with the camera so I'm not using it all day. But I can understand this. If you’re doing a lot of travelling then yea keep weight down can help. But I never thought that weight stunts my creative flow. Hmmm perhaps I should go to the gym.
3, EVF. This I can understand. I haven't used an EVF on a camera but the fact that I'm looking at screen means that I can get more info and more features. Also means I see less of the photo but all that info is helpful.
4, Tilt Screen. I love this idea, I wish more cameras had them. I never liked the fact that all my DSLR cameras that I ever had never had them. Crazy stuff I think. You may not use it but doing macro then hell yea. I would use it all the time. Do I change cameras because of it? Hmmm possible depends on the cost. But his comments about pro's like to "poo poo" about them is laughable.
5, focusing peaking and zebra. Well yea I would like better focusing on my DSLR when using manual lenses. My camera does have the ability to show highlights by flashing the parts out when in preview. Isn’t that the same thing? Just because I don't get stripes to show it doesn't make it any less valuable. Never heard a pro say "you should be able to pick it out with your eyes"
6, memory card compatibility, so far never wanted to take my memory cards from one camera to another. Once finished I will down the images to my computer. If unable too I will continue to shoot until the card is full and then use a card I know is empty. If photography is your life then you should know what's on your cards. Cards are cheap enough that this shouldn't be an issue.
7 and 8, upload to my phone, guess what I can do that too on my DinosaurSLR camera. Canon cameras have had Wi-Fi adaptors for a while now. I can control my settings on my phone too. Go figure. It’s not amazing, its technology buddy and this is how it works. Any pro photographer cares about his ability to give their customers the right photo should be learning the tech the gear can do.
9, cross brand compatibility, yep can do that on my canon camera too. Got an adaptor to put my old film Olympus 35mm lens on my 6D. And by using the internet I can see plenty of other people doing the same thing.
10, expanded focus, can do that in live view.
Not a number but 4K video, that's only important if you do video. Nikon using Sony sensors. So what. Apple uses Samsung to make its screens for iPads does that mean Samsung tablets are better? While Nikon uses Sony sensors they use their own processing and software to turn the light in to an image. The sensor is only part of the process that goes in to the final result, not the end all.
Interesting enough there was no talk about DR or ISO range or the ability of the camera to lock in focus in low light. The some of the features listed can be found in cameras that are in the market today.
There are some valued points like taking a DinosaurSLR to areas where it can get stolen because it looks like a "pro" camera and this does have some merit. But also looking like someone that's got money is also not going to help either. And the weight issue I can understand esp. when travelling.
But if you’re making money from photography for a living it doesn't matter what gear you use. Some use Nikon, canon, Sony or even Leica. Those that care know nothing about photography. Shoot with what you got, either way it's that camera in your hand that gives you the power to capture that shot.
But if you’re going to make some points about why change make them good ones. Not ones that shows a lack of understanding about the features of other cameras.
