EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 70D Spec List [CR3]
« on: June 28, 2013, 03:16:19 PM »
Looks like a nice update.
Question is how the sensor performes in RAW?
Everything else looks nice as a second body to a 5D3.  :)
And I still see room for a 7D2 or 8D, dual digic6, better alu body, fast 10-12fps, even higher ISO, dual card slot,
wifi is great for so many things, I hope same battery as 5D3...
20MP is just fine on APS-C
But price... Oh well, I fear between 6D and 5D3

My 2 cents

I will likely add this lense to my gear set.
But it needs to drop 20% from listprice.
Around 35mm is my favorite focal length and IS comes in handy for low light. My hands are not as steady anymore as they were several years ago. :)
The reviews are promising.

I really would like to see such a store opening in Munich  :)

Great News.

Though, just like many others now, I'm asking for the same firmware update for the 5D3!

Here is my current set up :

Canon EOS 5D Mark III & Canon EOS 600D

EF-S 10-22mm f/3,5-4,5 USM
EF-S 17-55mm f/2,8 IS USM (always on for APS-C)
EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM  (always on for FF)
EF 40mm f/2,8 STM (really great fun for street photog.!)
EF-S 60mm f/2,8 Macro USM
EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM
 Canon Extender EF 1,4x III
 Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT
 Gary Fong Lightsphere Collapsible Basic Set

Currently I am wondering if I should get the EF 17-40 or EF 16-35 or wait for a new version...

I think its far too early for any of your conclusions.   ::)
Just wait and see.

I am waiting for the new version. :)

EOS Bodies / Re: No DXO results on 1DX until at least September...?
« on: August 02, 2012, 10:26:52 AM »
There's a thread on DXO forums discussing potential problems at DXO Labs. Maybe they already had to let most people go who did the testing due to financial issues. They certainly didn't clarify why there is such a long delay in testing new cameras. This might be some forced vacation for the lower ranks while the upper management sells the company (to Nikon?). So i guess they might return in September stronger than ever or they'd be gone soon.

Yes, and that thread is full of nonsense.

Its August, so its vacation time in France and many other countries in Europe too.

Software & Accessories / Re: EOS Utility and osX 10.8 Mountain Lion
« on: July 27, 2012, 11:36:27 AM »

I installed MacOS 10.8 today
DPP seems to work
EOS Utility does NOT work, (Version 2.11.4), it crashes as soon as you connect a cam to the Mac!

So beware!


Site Information / Battery thread closed?!
« on: July 24, 2012, 05:01:45 PM »
Why is it not possible for me to post any threads anymore in the general cam forum and why was a thread closed just after I placed an answer related to a battery topic in a previous thread?
There was nothing in it against any forum rules!
Furthermore I did not receive any explanation nor PM. >:(

And now I can not post any further post in the above forums?!?

Please, I expect an explanation! ???  I feel kind of censored!


I can get 700+ shots before I'm under 10% on my battery, and I'm still playing in the menus a lot as it's a new camera.  The shot total per charge and percent is shown in the battery info in the menu.

I wonder if it makes a difference if:
shooting RAW only or RAW+ JPG?
To one card or CF + SD?
Haven't tested this till now.
I'm usually shooting RAW to CF and JPG to SD and getting nowhere near to 1k
Its more around 500-600 (some HDRs, but no video or liveview normally, but lots of setting changes and Display use)
When using a SD with several Eye-Fi transmissions I'm down to 200 or less

Just curious.
Any thoughts?

New tiny Speedlite?
Will it work with all other EOS Buddies?  :)

Lenses / Re: New Canon 50mm Coming? [CR1]
« on: July 17, 2012, 09:29:18 AM »
well, does not really belong here... but
are there any new rumors regarding a 35mm f/1,4 L Version II ?

At this point in time, these are my findings regarding STM:
- slower focus than USM
- continous AF possibly in video, but not really smooth, compared to a little training and doing it manually
- lower noise, but still noise audible when using continuos AF, manual is still better for STM when noise is crucial
- good for ad hoc AF videos or travel videos, so at the current stage I do not think its of interest for pro video but rather for entry level (which does not mean, that we don't see STM capability on an entry FF in the future)

I personally do not think we'll see a L lense with STM anytime soon, for my taste, normal focus is noticably slower with STM than USM (non video). I believe though that Canon will add these feature to all future Cams...
A pity that they did not introduce it with the 5D3 already :)

I think its far to early to compare any kind of rumoured specs between a D600 or a 6D or whatever.
So no reason to be excited or moan or bash anything.
