Lenses / Re: Canon ef-s 17-55mm 2.8 is usm GONE
« on: Today at 06:26:44 AM »
I expect a decent update for 17-55mm F2.8. It could be a STM version launch price below $800, and not sucking dust inside.

A pity that the official discount Canon not arrive in Brazil, and most of the rest of the planet. :(

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Fujifilm like the EOS 7D mark II
« on: February 28, 2015, 02:20:07 PM »
I'm impressed with his candor, but also with the Fuji products.  If wouldn't surprise me if
ten years from now the big camera vendors are Canon, Fuji and Samsung.
It would surprise very much when there are brands like Nikon and Sony
Fuji is a small manufacturer, why would they suddenly become larger than  Nikon, Sony?
There are a couple of years I recommend my friends NOT to invest much money in photography and video equipment high end Sony. ???

Sony had a glorious past in professional video. ::) But in recent decades, prematurely abandoned several video systems, memory card, game, audio media, flash shoe, etc. :-\

Traditional businesses Photography has a philosophy to maintain compatibility with new equipment over the decades.

A business manager should know your competitors, and Fuji does it very well.

However, I am surprised by the sincerity to speak publicly what could be seen as weakness.

Canon General / Re: Do More Mega Pixels translate in a richer photo?
« on: February 28, 2015, 08:23:22 AM »
Yes of course technique, lighting etc are most important. But I am taking about everything else being equal, will doubling the MP create better IQ pictures? If it does not then Canon made these new cameras to basically print large?
Those people who used 1DS Mark iii, and also 5D Mark ii, both supposedly identical sensor, say the color and sharpness are better at 1DS Mark iii. However, at high ISO 5D Mark ii had advantage.

It is possible that the new 5DS / 5DSr are optimized for color depth, dynamic range, and sharpness. This would give better images, even if you print in small sizes. If no such optimization, the advantages would be perceived only when printing very large sizes or when crop images.

-Higher MP in the 33x44mm chip size is actually more helpful, due to the pixel sites being larger than they are in a 35mm FF 24x36mm - bigger pixel sites can equal better light capturing
I understand that you referred to the 50 megapixel medium format cameras, compared to full frame 50 megapixel Canon in 5DS 5DSr.

If someone show arguments proving that I'm wrong, I'll swallow my words, :-X but ...

Whereas the only variable is the amount of megapixel who jumped from 22 to 50, will not see any improvement on a computer screen without expand the viewing.
The additional resolution would NOT be noticeably in a 4K computer monitor. Only a 8K monitor would show a more sharp image in a 50 megapixel photo, or printing on paper larger than 1 meter.

Obviously, the new Canon 5DS / 5DSr may further improvements in color filter, bit depth, dynamic range, etc.

PowerShot / Re: Advice for non-compact versatile camera plz
« on: February 26, 2015, 07:44:31 PM »
Film Cameras I know, Digital, basically nothing helpful.

She has an inherited OM-10 (mint condition), and uses my Pentax 645 (non-mint) from time to time. A friend of her's has a powershot sx40, and she is really liking the way it fits into her hand. Thats why I mentioned the sx60.

From what I have seen here, the 5D3 is 'best in breed ', and the 70D and SL1 seem to be well respected. But it still comes back to the $'s.

I really want to help her as much as I can, she has that 'X-factor' natural ability. Pains me to admit it, but she can out-shoot me. She does awesome Street Candids, something I have never mastered.

Maybe the T3/T5 is the better option, for now.

So nobody has faith in the PowerShot series ?

Thanks again for the opinions, etc.
Is there any reason why she cannot stay with the OM-10???
Keep your OM10 as collector's object, although it still work?
Entering the digital photography universe?
See pictures on the camera and computer without film revelation and print?
Having ISO 12800 readily available?
Have autofocus available?
Having automatic lens aperture and shutter speed available?
Have live view?

My first SLR was an Olympus OM1, and I think any current Rebel model allows all kinds of adjustments and learning possible with SLR film cameras, and more.

If she ever used Pentax 645 sometime in life, should be frustrated with any small sensor camera, as SX60. On the other hand, Rebel SL1, or T5i can make spectacular images in the hand of someone who knows how to use properly.

Cameras like the SX60 is for users who do NOT wish to learn how to manually control ISO, aperture, and speed.

Macro / Re: Playing with kenko extension tubes
« on: February 23, 2015, 08:24:23 PM »
I use a set of macro extension tubes with AF and get very good results with 50mm and 100mm lens. Some people use the modest 40mm pancake with macro extension tubes, and love it.

Yes, the Macro dedicated lens make things easier, and those who will use often do not regret buying one.

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: A Suggestion on the EOS-1D C Replacement [CR1]
« on: February 23, 2015, 02:05:26 PM »
I sincerely hope this is true! Why? So all the morons who type 5Dc instead of 5D realize they have no business changing the name of a camera for a company.
Hopefully Canon really launch a 5D Cinema. ??? So every time someone asks for advice on the next Rebel (or 70D), people will stop responding the old 5D Classic is the best inexpensive camera for all users of this planet. :-X :P

YES! Just LOVE the idea of such a model split. Canon should bring a stills optimized 5D IV for the conservative, stills-only mirrorslapper crowd. And all those yelling for 4k in every DLSR should be asked to put their wallet where their mouth is and shell out a couple 100 or 1000 more for a "video-optimized" 4k video 5D C.

You think a 5DC would only cost $100 or $1,000?
I understand what he means $200 or $2000 more for the version that records 4K video.

Nikon tried a camera "pure photography" with the ugly Nikon DF. :-[ Sales were not good, and do not think Canon will try something like that.

The question is:
A camera for photos only, will be cheaper to produce?

The answer is:
If this camera sells fewer units, its price must be high to offset weak sales.

This is a vicious cycle:
Is it expensive because it sells too little? Or sells too little because it is expensive? ::) :-X

« on: February 23, 2015, 01:03:45 PM »
If we consider the rumor over a 18 megapixel camera, 12 frames per second, video 4K, double CFast card slot, it fits well in a hypothetical 5D Cinema.

Although I believe that Canon can limit it to 10 photos per second, not to eat the sales of 1D series. ::)

EOS Bodies / Re: Possible Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Spec Talk [CR2]
« on: February 23, 2015, 09:09:21 AM »
I'm hoping for an awesome 24MP Sensor with a big DR upgrade, -3 EV focus sensitivity and many focus points like the 5DIII/1DX but more to the corner please! And a great/better ISO quality like the 6D/1dX..  4K would be nice and 1080p/60fps please...!
Your list really looks like what the target market expected a 5D Mark iii replacement.
