EOS Bodies / Re: A New EOS Pro Body With 46mp Next Month? [CR1]
« on: September 18, 2014, 04:31:38 AM »
I paid USD 8249 for my 1dX two years ago, today it's USD 8249, there's a reason they can do that. And I think it's a smart move by Canon, because when the new model comes out I still get a lot back for my 1dx and can afford to upgrade, if it dropped, the used priced dropped and I would NEVER be able justify buying the new one. I can sell my 1dx here tomorrow for USD 6300.

EOS Bodies / Re: High ISO Samples from the Canon EOS 7D Mark II

I don't read anything into the sample pictures as they are always like this from the start.

But I must say, even if you are new with a camera, taking a sharp picture for public view isn't exactly rocket science. If he saw that they were off, why not use LV ? Even if he had limited time, I'm sure he could take two shots. But this being said I know a few photographer that just goes "What?" If I point out a technical flaw or mishap in a shot. Not everyone is a tech geek, and some people don't even care about slight front or backfocus at all, not in their vocabulary ..

It could be 10.000 reasons ... Wait for reviewers that own tripods and are proper geeks to show us  :P

Lenses / Re: Hands-on With the Canon EF 400 f/4 DO IS II

By the way, this lens is just as heavy (or light) as 70-200/2.8, that's quite manageable actually!

I don't know where you got that idea, but the 70-200/2.8L IS II is 1,490g, and the 400/4DO II is 2,100g.

My bad, I was under the impression that 70-200/2.8L IS II is around 1800g and this is just under 2000g. Still, nice weight, nothing terrible to handhold.

In use weight is 1700g with the 70-200, but it remains to see what the "in use" weight of the 400 DO is.

+1 for the RRS-plate, it has a much lower profile so it's great for support, and at least for me, is way more comfortable than holding with no foot.

Thank!s...did not know that RRS made a replacement for the foot.  Link?
 ....but will it fit the new lens?

Afaik there all the same four screws.

Have the good people of CR completely forgotten the Canon sample shots from the 1dx? It was misfocused, soft, heavy NR and no sharpness. But it didn't turned out be like that in real life now did it?

(Sorry if this has already been said)

Finally got my camera back after 36 days away on repair and got to test my new Godox+Profoto octa.

They managed to send me the old trigger even though I bought the new one, so no HSS yet, it sucks...

But here's one of the first shots I did. I LOVE the light output from this combo!



And a grey, rainy and cloudy day suddenly looks interesting (to me at least)

25mm x 1.6x = 40mm
No. It's EF-S so it's 24mm on APS-C. If you put EF 24mm on APS-C, then you will get equivalent around 38mm.
Uh. I'm almost sure that an ef 24 has the same FOV as an ef-s 24. The added "S" just means that it's only mountable to crop bodies.
Nope. You can mount EF-S lens on FF as well. But I wouldn't recommend it.
A Canon  EF-S lens will not mount on a Canon FF body.
Can you tell me why? If u can mount FF lens on a crop body?
The EF-S mount is purposely different, because Canon wants to be incompatible. Moreover, the lenses Sigma "DC" fit in the full frame cameras, even if they theoretically may not be compatible.

Yes, but they are not fully compatible and usually requires zooming from the shortest focal and back from the longest to work, so I think it's better to just make them not compatible ...

That is correct. The focal length displayed on the lens is because it is the LENS that is 24mm no matter what sensor you place behind it. Even if it's made for crop like a 10-22 ef-s the filed of view is still equiv to 16-35,2mm on FF.

Lighting / Re: Godox Witstro 360 flash with HHS
« on: September 04, 2014, 04:51:52 PM »
After 36 days my 1dx came back, new front and back plate (all buttons new) adjusted sensor plane and calibrated in the new Canon AF rig. Everything top notch!

And finally could try the Godox 360 in my new ProFoto 3' RFi octa.

The only shot I got of my little angel and forth shot I have shot with the 360. And I frikkin love it! Awesome flash! Only REALLY sucky thing is that the CellsII Transmitter I was recommended for HSS, does not work, I'm not
very happy about that to say the least.

Quick shot here , very bright out, but loads of power brought down the white wall in the background.

I feel it's a bit soft too, BUT the expression and smoothness and feel of the shot is very very good. Sweet cat shot!
