Stand back and watch - digital SLRs are going to get better and cheaper very fast. I waiting for the Canon 1D to hit around US$1500.

14 megapixel? that dosen't even seem right... I mean, at what point do megapixels surpass the quality/clarity of the human eye? What good would a that kind of photo quality be if our eyes aren't even good enough to experience/enjoy the quality of the photo?

Brian - more MP is always good - you can equate this either to sharper and more detailed "small" images or potential for larger output. As discussed in the thread on Dean's night shots, scanned output from his view camera can approach 128mp - and yes, you can see the difference!

Interesting that Kodak has gone for CMOS - now Nikon folk can also enjoy that silky smooth Canon look.

And as for the 1Ds - just read the preview

drool

Cheers,

Colin

Hi Charles,

Stand back and watch - digital SLRs are going to get better and cheaper very fast. I waiting for the Canon 1D to hit around US$1500.

Do you think that there is a chance that digital SLR's (with the quality of a D60 or even better) will become cheaper very fast? I mean that let's say a D60 will cost US$1500 within 2 years?

Regards,
Frederic

I wouldn't expect the 1D to drop much - one this has over the 1ds is speed, and for many photojournalist apps, this and smaller file size are big plusses - I think the 1D will have a market at its current price point for another 12-18 months at least.

I suspect you will see few, if any, price changes in cameras aimed at a particular market. It's like computers - the current decent model for home use is always around £1000 - you get more bang for your buck each year, but the market seems happy with spending £1000 for a new computer. Likewise, I think Canon/Nikon et al. have figured pros will spend £5K, serious amateurs £2k - and I think we'll see a succession of models in these price brackets.

Furthermore, it seems the manufacters have been careful to ensure that demand exceeds supply, so it is unlikely we will see many of "last years models" gathering dust on the shelves - there will be bargains to be had if you're very lucky (as when the D30 was superceded by the D60), but there weren't really enough D30s waiting to be bought to generate a significant slash in price. The 1Ds is likely to split the market ... but the market is rapidly growing and Canon will, I think, produce appropriate numbers of each camera in parallel.

What we may see in a while is a "dumbed down" D60 with possibly the same sensor but less camera features at under 1k - D600 ?

Of course what will emerge is a used market for DSLRs. Not sure how viable this would be - while I would have no problem buying a used mechanical camera (I can easily check and test this), a used DSLR is another matter.

Cheers,

Colin

Hi Colin. You said it better than I did. The PC comparison should be similar. 5 Years ago, $2000 bucks bought you a 60 Mhz PC Today the same money will buy you a PC 20 times faster. For the current price of a lower-end digital SLR, in the next couple of years we should start seeing cameras with the capabilities of today's D60 or 1D's.

Theoretically, of course.

Charles
