So I just found another place on the internet that has confirmed my suspicions about the Canon Sure Shot Max being the same camera as the ES Date and the K Date. These cameras already have a number of different names like the Prima 5 and the Autoboy Mini (with “Date” added if it had the date back function).
Has anybody ever used these? I’m curious how much more effective this might be than just putting one of these silica packs into an entire case or camera bag. Maybe this is a good secondary solution if the camera body is already fogged up?
I had no idea, but there’s a little adapter you can buy for Fujifilm cameras that lets you attach Canon EF lenses to the body and retain all auto-focus features. From what I’ve seen, the adapter works near flawlessly with just about all EF lenses and the focus seems fast.
AVAILABLE OCTOBER 2018 FOR $2299.
- New RF lens mount (need adapter for EF lens use)
- 14-bit C-RAW @ 30MP is nice
- Roughly same size as Fuji XT-2 but with a better grip
- Not a video camera
- Can charge battery INSIDE the camera (huge plus)
- Burst rate is a bit on the slow side, but not a deal breaker for me
Been waiting for this forever.
This wasn't my first digital camera, but it was one of my early favorites. I remember buying this after seeing it in Hawaii back in 2004. At the time, I must have pored over just about every online review of this camera before finally purchasing it (I even have an email that I sent to myself at the time comparing prices -- I forgot this thing was nearly $800 when I purchased it as a poor college student).
This camera had it all -- super zoom, flip-out screen, viewfinder, and all the manual settings you could want. Plus all those wonderful 8MP. I brought this thing everywhere which is sort of amazing since I would definitely consider this way too big today.
