November 3 Will Not Affect Me In the Least | Ron Dawson | Dare Dreamer
Ron says that whatever Canon announces, he doesn't care:
I don’t care what the heck-fire Canon releases today. I guarantee you it will not change the world. And it will not make you a better filmmaker (or photographer assuming it’s some kind of combo). And I bet you TWO million dollars than in six months, some other camera manufacturer will announce a camera that will make this announcement look hum drum.
I'd agree with him, except that there's a strong case that Canon already made a significant change in the film and video world with the 5D Mark II. Can they do it again?
