It's not September yet.Right, I know what month it is.
Again, no clue what this'll be like on those dinky little APS-C toys. To repeat, I see the Shorty McForty mounted to my 5DIII as a Leica X2 killer. As in, stomp all over, kill crush destroy, mop the floor with Leica X2 killer.Wow, you're such a manly electronics purchaser. Grrrrr.
Seriously, stop trying to be a sensationist! It's because of the fluorescent lighting, every camera will do this at those shutter speeds. Fault of lighting, not camera... the lights cycle, have people making claims like this ever used a camera before?I know something that somebody else didn't know. Quick, get on the internet and be the biggest jerk I can possibly be about it!!!
I agree that at least the 5D3 looks more like pro-tailored body rather than high end amateur.
Just wanted to comment the mentioned features in the light of mirrorless progression, which seems to be quite impressive - shorter update cycles compred to SLRs and more innovation. Some of them already provide enough for a special professional use and sometimes even surprass in specs.
* Olympus EM-5:
- fully weather sealed (5D3 is not though improved from 5D2)
- flash sync speed up to 1/250th sec (5D3 - 1/200)
- 9fps (ok - 4 with the AF)
- "world's fastest" (presumably for single-acquisition AF) - needs to be verified of course
- ISO up to 25600 and not bad for a much smaller sensor
* Fuji x 1 Pro:
- high DR with very usable pushing, good detail & rendering (lack of AA & unique bayer pattern)
* Fuji x100:
- with leaf shutter up 1/2000 f-sync
- now this camera is silent, forget all those "silent modes" in other cameras
* Panasonic GH2:
- impressive video (with hacks)
(can't wait to see the new GH3 model, probably due to Photokina this year)
* Generally speaking of non-SLR cameras:
- contrast AF doesn't need AF tweaking though speeds are not yet comparable to high end SLRs
Sorry if something worth mentioning is left out, that was just a quick try.Really? I'm honestly surprised to hear that:
* Dual cards
* Pro AF
* Improved weather sealing
* More FPS
* EC +/- 5 stops
* Improvement to focus microadjust
* Reduction in shutter lag
* Viewfinder improvement
* X-sync improvement
* Silent mode shooting
These are pro features, especially the AF.
Understand that the 5d3 isn't what everyone wanted, but the one thing I don't think can be claimed is this was was a camera for consumers. Consumers would generally not want a pro AF but would likely want more MP. Not saying the pro market doesn't want more MP either, but if they were going for the consumer market I have no doubt MP would have increased since consumers with 5dii's would look at the 5diii as no real improvement for them.
Personally, I think this is marketing crap. Of course Canon would like every well-off amateur with a 7d or 5d to feel like they are almost professionals since they got alleged pro gear. After all, this is what the red ring and white lens campaign is for. But except maybe for landscape and semi-pro portrait/wedding, every pro I ever saw at events in Berlin had a 1D body, sometimes an older one. Most of them have Nikon anyway. Maybe some will get the 5d3, but the fps imho might be too slow for events.Interesting. I met a pro photog at a UFC even and she used a pair of 7Ds with 70-200L and 24-70L lenses.
Can we stop now. It's pretty much a wash....
Wow, those samples look terrible, but then again I hate HDR. Hopefully the feature will be of more merit when in practice in the hands of those that take a more tasteful approach to HDR.The landscape/water picture looked pretty cool to me. I think I'm one of the rare guys that actually likes HDR.
