7D MK II Sample Images / Re: Anything Shot with a 7D MII
« on: December 09, 2014, 06:50:50 PM »
Here's one I shot yesterday of my daughter acting silly. Turned out to be my favorite of the day.
Lovely, perfect little sparkle in the eyes.

Thanks!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: buying suggestion: a 5D3 or 1Dx?
« on: December 02, 2014, 08:37:14 PM »
The 5D3 sounds ideal for your needs. The only question might be whether the extra stop of ISO the 1Dx gives you would be needed or not?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D III Playback Card keeps changing

I just don't close the card door until the images finish copying and the card has been reinserted. Or, if the battery has been removed for charging, then you can choose the for without it changing.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 7D Mark II - Finally using Canon's newer fab?
« on: November 09, 2014, 08:02:10 PM »
DR may not have improved at base ISO, but it has improved at higher ISOs where most sports and wildlife shots take place (high shutter speed and low light). Improvements where it's needed.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7D Mk II Availability Question

Would you really want to shoot a football game with a camera you have not become familiar with?  It will take longer than one day just to get through the manual and settings.   ;)
The manual is online and I don't imagine it's going to be that much different from any other Canon camera, except maybe AF and those settings are already on the newer bodies.

Personally, I'd like to get it for a Friday night game. I have it pre ordered and aren't confident it will be here that quick. I'd say your best bet, since you waited so long, would be to find it local and pick it up in store because there already a lot of people in line ahead of you. Good luck.

Lenses / Re: Does it matter anymore who makes the sensors?
« on: September 23, 2014, 09:04:41 PM »
I tend to disagree, having such a monopoly on sensors would be bad for innovation. 

I agree with your disagreement  (huh?  :o)

Is this not the situtation we have with Canon?  Canon SLRs only uses Canon sensors, so any innovation of the sensors used in Canon cameras must come from Canon.  Is not more likely that Canon will drift along trying to sell their existing sensors for as long as they can in order to reduce costs (increase profits)?

Canon is not going to innovate their sensors simply because a newer technology is there.  Canon will innovate their sensors only if they feel they can make a business case of lowering costs/increasing profits.

Once you get your customers hooked with a big expensive lens kit, you can innovate the sensor when ever you feel like it.... or not.

The customers have hairs that are shorter, and Canon has a pretty good grip on them.  ;D
No, not the same situation at all. Canon has to compete with Nikon, Sony, and the others. The other companies are what give Canon their incentive to innovate.

Being held to ransom - well that's what contracts are for. So that's nonsense too.
No, it isn't nonsense. If there is only ONE sensor supplier, then you either pay what the supplier wants or you don't get their sensor, then you have no product. It would in reality simply raise prices for the end user.

Nice shooting and what a load to carry! We didn't take the long hike out to Delicate Arch, but saw it from the shorter view point. It looks much larger from where you were!

Software & Accessories / Re: How long a Monopod should be
« on: February 04, 2014, 10:38:41 PM »
Get it long enough to be standing comfortably plus some in case you ever shoot from a hill or steps where the monopod's foot rests below your feet.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Deal: Samyang/Bower 14mm f/2.8 $299

L is worth it
Normally I would agree, but from what I've seen of this lenses performance, it isn't worth the extra $2k for AF and a red stripe. For me, that makes the difference between having uwa and not.

Is this the umc version? The picture shows umc, but nothing in the description says it's the new version.

Haven't shot pictures of money with my 24-105 f/4L, but I find it very sharp for my college mugshots I do.
