canon and nikon are not the lonely leaders in camera technology anymore.

That would be unfortunate for them if being the leader in technology was their goal.  But from a business standpoint, that's a nice to have.  Sony's Betamax was the best consumer videocassette technology...until it's inability to compete in the market killed it.

Nope, Betamax was only the best outside Europe.
It was the V2000 system of Philips that was the best. At least here in Europe it was (I don't think it was released outside Europe). Much better than Betamax and for sure much better than VHS. You could record both sides (like the audio cassette) and the write protection were switchable levers in stead of breaking plastic. Last but not least the image quality was much better too. It killed it self because it was too late on the market and the Japaneese compitition didn't want to invest into the system (of course).

OT and not for Neuro.
Just enjoy. The 7DII will be a fantastic camera once it is out there. Just like the 7D was 5 years ago. If one likes an other brand better, fine, buy that one. I'm so tired of all the fanatics around the world, would it be religious or camera brand.  :'(

Canon General / Re: Free trade over the Atlantic, a win or a loss?
« on: September 03, 2014, 06:26:07 PM »
Canon is a Japanese company.  Items coming to the US, Canada, or Europe are all imported from Japan, and therefore not subject to trade agreements within or between North America and/or Europe.

Understood, but now I have to pay in Euro's what on the other side are dollars. If I can order in US/Canada without import taxes, just like I can buy stuff within the EU, I know where I will order my Canon stuff.

Just curious if this will cause a price drop in the EU, because otherwise people will order on the other side, or prices in the US/Canada will rise, because ....

Just curious if someone can shine a light on the free trade agreements between US/Canada and the EU. Will this mean the Canon gear will be cheaper in Europe  8) or more expensive in the US/Canada  :'(?

Is there free trade between US and Canada? If so, did that drop/raise prices in one of the countries?

Perhaps your camera/lens combination is not giving you the sharpness you think you should have because of bad calibration? This is what a 40D with a EFS 18-135 can produce:



Not bad at all I guess, specially for an amature who won't print big.

I'm a happy user of a 9 stop ND500 filter of Lightcraft (http://www.lcfilter.com/#!prime-nd/c1622). The 82 mm will cost you US $ 85,00. (corrected)

Not very cheap and it will require manual WB (as all ND filters).

Hi Guys,

My first post here. A picture I took a few years ago, when I just bought my 400mm f/5.6. A bit too noisy, but I was going for BIF pictures and had my 40D at iso 800  :o. Taken at f7.1 and 1/3200sec.

I see Grey Herons once in a while but have not captured any half as well as you have -- very nice job!

Thanks Hank,

I got lucky. The heron came flying straight at me but decided to take a different direction. It was just like he was going to stop in mid air. Took a very sharp turn to the left and disappeared.

Grtz,
Peerke

Really like this.  Great shot Peerke!

Thank you for the reply. I've looked at your owl pictures. Super.

Krummel is a mix between a south African Boer Boel and a Japanese Tosa. Best dog I ever had.

Will Canon releases more NEW lenses to support 75+ MP?

Nope, they leave that to Sigma  :P.

Bring out you're dead.

Can someone explain the "terrific" ISO performance?

If you take a 15mp photo at high ISO and scale it down to 1280x720 the noise will pretty much disappear.

Got it, thanks  8).

Could it have to do with the IR filter of your 600D? I had the same with my 40D until I put a IR filter in front (B&W 486) and the margenta color cast was gone.
