Photography Technique / Re: What is your keeper rate?
« on: February 16, 2015, 09:58:38 AM »
Interesting post, I was thinking about it since my shooting is becoming more and more casual the keeper rate has sunk dramatically.

In my perspective, I call a keeper whatever photo has an interest to me. Usually I judge my pics thinking this:

"If this was shot by someone else, would it be interesting to me? would i stop at least a few seconds wanting to look at it a bit more?"

Under this assumption and given the fact that my style of shooting is "get out and try to look for something interesting" I'd say that the rate is 1:200 :D

EOS-M / Re: Official: Canon EOS M3 and It's Not Coming To North America

Dear Canon, if you added an evf instead of the pointless flash, 1080p 60fps and DPAF, i would have thrown money in your face so fast it would've hurt.

But yet again an all-compromises body. Tune that price a 300 bucks less and ill think about it.

Mmm exciting! although ive read that it weights a ton, finally a focal range and aperture that i need! :) let's hope iq and af are up to standards

Uh interesting news. It sounds weird thought that after a very thin and spread out releasing policy now they come up with not 1 but 3 new models, some of them with the "hey choose the one you like best!"..

usually they always operate under the "take this or leave it policy" (or better "take this or take this cause you already have invested in our lenses"). this could be a welcome change of mindset for the company.

PowerShot Cameras / Re: Canon to Target The GH4 With New DSLR Type? [CR2]

This baffles me, why they dont use a system they already have, meaning the EOS-M?

Make a high end mirrorless with the M system, you have already lenses for it. Make more! Pancakes! Fast zooms!

Plus it's the cinematic format that pros really really like. Slap a 4k here, zebras there, good codecs and its done. Swively screen and videographers will like it more. EVF and you'll win over also photo takers.

Without mentioning that there is a squadron of canon uses drooling for a pro mirrorless and just cant let go of their gear for a gh4 or a sony AND you make current M users happy too.

Again, baffled. C'mon.

Not interested in this lens at all, but it then means that the system is alive! :) cross fingers for the next M!

Ah yes, wishlists!

- AF on par with Sony/MFT
- EVF on par with Sony/MFT
- Zebras / Peaking

- Tilty screen
- WiFi
- 60pfs @1080
- current form factor is great, but i wouldnt mind it a little bigger to accomodate good new features
- the grip could be bigger, i think it could easily bulge out to match the depth of the 22mm
- a better rear wheel and perhaps another good dial would be ace

It seems too much to say that it bests the mkIII in terms of stills but the video is astonishing, leaves every Canon in the dust.

They should come out with more freaking leanses though and not the uber expensive Zeiss with stupid electronic focus ring.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Price tag to sell a Canon 7D
« on: May 27, 2014, 11:33:17 AM »
Hi Canonites,
I would like to sell my 2+ years old Canon 7D in a local online marketplace, the cam has all the accessories, box and normal signs of use like a couple of minor scratches. It has done 44k clicks.

Here in NL the new bodies sell for 1000/1100 euros, so I was thinking to price it around 650.

How much would you ask for the camera?


Lenses / Re: Review: Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4 Distagon T*
« on: February 26, 2014, 06:48:41 AM »
your move Sigma, make me believe! :D

excuse me for the perhaps stupid question, but why Sony produced these cameras with the E mount, don't they have already full frame lenses on the A mount? wouldn't it make more sense to give it a native A with already available lenses instead a mount for which they still have to come out with some? I mean the current E mount line is only crop isnt it?

sounds a bit unnecessary the canon is not even that expensive..

i think sigma should aim for an ultra wide zoom or prime, i think they will see big bucks if the come out with a good 14mm 2.8
