 THE APS-C DSLR KING

After a day spent shooting one of the toughest of traditional sports, (‘Calcio fiorentino’ dates back to the 16th century), Alessandro was delighted with how the EOS 7D Mark II stood up to the test, and complimented the camera on its ability to meet his exacting standards.

“I am obsessed with speed and quality,” he laughs. “There used to be a time in DSLRs where you could have one thing but not the other. But not any more. This EOS 7D Mark II is like a small EOS-1D X and it’s got all the performance with half the size, and all of the quality with none of the compromise. It is the king of the APS-C cameras, for sure. It is definitely a camera I would have in my camera bag. Canon engineers have done such a great job. They made a great camera with fantastic speed and it is really a revolution in this type of camera with 10 frames per second and a 20 Megapixel sensor. I think Canon has raised the game again; just when you think they can’t do any better, they go and do this. So, bravo to Canon!”

Time to see if folks put their money where there mouth is... or not.  Just for fun, no trolling please. :-)

Dear Friend Mr. Canon1.
One of my Dear friend , Japanese friend, who work at Canon Co.----Many years ago, He told me that, For the Electronic and Optical Products of Most Companies ( Special Made in Japan)---Never buy the first batch of the new products---Wait another 4 Months= for the second batch from the MFG., After People use the first Batch and Report the Error/ Mistake that company did, And The Second Batch, The Company will  have a chance to correct/ Improve, to fix  their Mistake.
Yes, I do like this in every times that I buy new cameras or new Lenses.
Have a great Work week.

Lenses / Re: What New Lens are You Most Excited About?
« on: September 14, 2014, 11:45:47 AM »
Dear Surapon, is that lens FF compatible?  I realize you have it on a FF body, but from what I've read, it sounds like there are dark borders on FF sensors?  If not, that might be the lens I'm looking for - but if so, I'll wait for the 12mm.

Dylan, yes, it's for the 1D X.  It's compatible in terms of fit, but the manual warns of metering and AF markings being off from the stock screen.  There's no exposure compensation setting for it in the custom functions, so it's only semi-supported.  Eldar & Edward don't report that being an issue, so I'm hoping that's the case as I really miss my Ef-S & Eg-S screens.  Neuro pointed out some time ago that you can use the custom function to tweak the metering as well if it's an issue.  There are custom screens available for the 5DIII as well.

Okay, Eldar beat me to the reply...and maybe the exposure difference will work out as I tend to overexpose nearly all of my photos by 2/3 - 1 EV for ETTR anyways :)

Dear Friend, Mr. mackguyver.
Yes, This 8 mm Fish eyes is for Small Sensor, But When I use with my FF. Camera, I can Crop and still get the Best  of Fisheye Effect too.
But , So cheap.
Have a great Sunday, Sir.

EOS-M / Re: EOS M Accessory question
« on: September 14, 2014, 11:01:13 AM »
Just got the EOS M + 22mm. Like it and will keep it for the long term, so now need to think about accessories.

1. The Canon EF-EF-M adapter: I think of the M as a compact camera to carry everywhere, so I don't know how useful it will be to have the EF adapter and give up the whole compactness thing. Not that I will try to use the reach advantage and shoot birds, LOL  ;D.
So your opinion will be really useful to inform me of advantages I am overlooking. How many of you use the adapter regularly with EF lenses? Which EF lenses do you mostly use? Is that still true if you have a second body?
Retro lovers: is it better to get a FD 50mm and an adapter instead? If so, which 50mm- there seems to be a bunch of them out there (I mean 1.8s and 1.4s, the 1.2s are too expensive and my manual focus capabilities with the M are untested and with regular dSLRs are ok, not stellar!
I like the 80-85mm-ish focal length a lot for portraits and don't have that FL for full frame unless I am lugging my 70-200 II.

2. Wrist strap: I thought of getting a grip for the M, but I am not sold on the metallic grip- once again because it will increase bulk. Here again, those who bought the thumbs up and grip for the M, how useful do you find it?
Is there any wrist strap that works particularly well with the M? I am aware I will have to switch out the neck strap to use the lug connector.

3. Batteries: Wasabi, is it? Any other options? How long is it safe to run the M continuously? If an hour or so (in the mandatory 29.99 minute chunks) is ok, I will use this as my primary video cam.

4. Bag: Neuro earlier had mentioned the Dashpoint 20. Any other suggestions?

Thanks, all, in advance.

Dear Friend Mr. sagittariansrock.

Here is my Best New toy  And Cheap for EOS-M.

Personally the Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II intrigues me. Why? How good will it be?  How much will it cost?

However, the lens I'm most interested in is the Samyang 12mm f/2.8 Full Frame Fish Eye.  I'd like a fisheye but the Canon 8-15 seems way too expensive for a lens I won't use a whole lot.  If the Samyang is cheap (~$200-350 US) and decently sharp, I'll pick one up for sure.

The other lenses don't excite me at all.

Dear Friend, Mr. Mackguyver.
I Agree with you 100%, Fisheye lens( For Creative feeling , when we are borring), The GREAT AND CHEAPO from Korea---I have one too = 3 years ago =Bower 8mm F/ 3.5 Fisheye Lens - $ 240 US Dollars , and Love the Price and the Quality of the Lens. Made in Korea, Same Company of Samyang and  Rokinon.

Photography Technique / Re: POLL: Do you crop (and why)?
« on: September 11, 2014, 03:47:18 PM »
I've been told real photogs don't crop. Is this a remnant of over 60 years old from the good old analog film days? I are these clueless youngsters simply not able to frame in camera?

I've tried to include all possible reasons for (not) cropping I can imagine, I hope it's not too much clutter. If I still should have forgotten something or simply voting is too limited feel free to elaborate in the thread!

This is a re-issue of an older discussion thread of mine, but now as a poll. I hope a lot of people vote again, I find these results very interesting to get an idea about how other people work.


Dear Friend Marsu.
Thanks for the Great Post like this, that will make all of us share our thinking----Yes, or NO, No one care, Just try to do the best Photos that we Love as the Hobby/ Or The PRO of som of our dear friends.
Here are my  Great Teacher's Words about 10 years already :

"RULES OF PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS ( THE " PRO " ) : ______1 ) NEVER LET ANYONE ELSE SEE YOUR SO/SO OR BAD PHOTOGRAPHS. (MISS UNIVERSE NEVER LET ANYONE SEE HERSELF WITH OUT MAKE-UP WHEN SHE WAKE UP IN THE MORNING) _____2) FIXED/ POST PROCESSING FOR SO/SO OR BAD PHOTOS AND CHANGE TO GOOD PICTURES( That Include Croping too---Ha, Ha, Ha)._____ 3) REAL" PRO" NEVER HAVE BAD PICTURES, BUT HE/SHE CAN FIXED THE BAD ONE TO BE SO/SO--GOOD PIC.____ 4) REAL "PRO" CAN SHOOT THE PHOTOS AND GET ONLY 3-5% AS THE GREAT MASTERPIECES.____ 5) ALL PHOTOGRAPHERS CAN BE "PRO" IF THEY CAN TRAIN, LEARN AND IMPROVE THEIR TECHNIQUE/ ARTISTIC ABILITY . ____AND SO ARE YOU, YOU CAN BE THE "PRO" IF YOU TRY HARDER."

Lighting / Re: How to Extend Flash Performance (Life on Site)
« on: September 11, 2014, 01:57:50 PM »
Hello fellow CR folks!

I have been wondering if there is any way to extend the life of my flash while I'm at an event.

The main issue is during the reception. I am always very selective in the shots I take, but when I fire the flash, I expect it go. As the night goes on, the flash begins to hate me more and more. Primary flash heads are the 600EX-RT's if that makes any difference at all.

Thank you for any advice you have.

Cheers!
-Tabor


Dear friend Mr. Tabor.
Two Possible  of your Question :
1) How to Extend the Flash Life ( the Flash Tube) = My Canon  CPS friend recommend to me, , After I continue  firing flash for 20 times,  Stop/ Take a break for 3-5 Minutes and let the Flash Bulb cool down---That will extend the Total life of Flash units.
2) How to  shoot more flash Photos with out change the Batteries
  A) Buy this Recharge battery unit ( $ 85 US Dollars )and can use up to 1200  Flash Photos in one charge ( I just order 2 of them after I see your Question)

http://www.amazon.com/3000mAh-Speedlite-External-Portable-Battery/dp/B00GLKX7K8/ref=pd_sxp_grid_i_0_1

 B) Or Buy the Plastic Box  to use with 6 AA Recharged Battery for 35 US Dollars , and Use for 400+ Flashed Photos ( which I already have = 2 Units for 6 years )---But The real Cost = High Price of  AA Chargeable  "Enelooop" batteries.

As for the lack of Japanese, maybe Canon has asked the Japanese government to block this website - sort of like the China's Great Firewall.
Actually the real reason would be interesting (I've studied sociology, so I always like to know about these things). The Japanese internet seems to be somewhat separate from the rest of the world just by language and culture. For the same reason, I very much doubt the Japanese Canon engineers are really interested about what the rest of the world wants from them (more dr!), or so it seems.
Wow ! Discovered because the Japanese do not participate in Canonrumors. ??? Canon, heartless company spies on its employees and threatened their lives if some information leak in Canonrumors. :-X :o  I think the only Japanese citizens who are not spied on, are employees of Nikon, always write here about the benefits of DR at low ISO. :P

+ 100  for me too, dear teacher Mr. ajfotofilmagem.
"Canon, heartless company spies on its employees and threatened their lives if some information leak in Canonrumors."---  When Canon Company know, The Company just tell that  employee to do Hara-Kiri by them self, infront of all staffs---NO, Not Threatened them, Just suggestion---Ha, Ha, Ha.

Dear Friends and Dear Teachers.
Late 1999, I brough the First  Semi-DSLR Olympus C2500L and  get the Best 32 MB and The Highest 512 MB Memory cards ( Total cost of Olympus C2500L  2.5MP = Almost $ 2000 US Dollars, and the  2 cards = More than $ 100 US Dollars, Premium Gas = $ 1.25( ??) US Dollars per Gallon and No one complaint about) ----Now, Canon 1Dx = $ 6000 US Dollars + ( 2 years ago  Canon 1Ds III = $ 7999 US Dollars ) and  Sandisk 512 GB cost = $ 729 US Dollars---Ha, Ha, Ha----That are the truth.
Well, for the Videographers,  You must wait about 2 more years, Until  SD  512 GB price come down to = 25 US Dollars.
Have a great day.

Photography Technique / Re: Finding your Specialty
« on: September 09, 2014, 10:06:11 AM »
I have far too much gear and far too little time to shoot, so I would like to specialize.  How have those of you who specialize in one area found that specialty?

My dear friend, Mr. mackguyver.
As you and me = 80% Hobby and 20%  Get Paid on our Love Photographic Hobby---We just do the best as we can, BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTORS = Are HAPPY in our life, Like Me past 4 months that I have Canon EOS-M, this Baby is on my Belt all the times,  and I just forget 4 of my DSLRs----Yes, I shoot every things that around me.
Have Super FUN, Sir.
