Eeeehhm....I admit that I do want this camera, but that "commercial" DID NOT convince me.

It was super cheese, but I don't think it was aimed at photographers... it was aimed at people with too much money who *wish* they were photographers. Specifically, wishing they were photographers photographing models.

"Give us your money, and you TOO can photography hot models in luxurious settings for billboard campaigns!"

Where is the "5Ds" logo in golden font?

That was a rendering people used for blog posts and rumor posts. Not from Canon.

What will become of the 5D Mark III?  It will remain an excellent camera capable of delivering terrific images.

Lower than I was expecting (if real). Impressive performance for the cost, assuming that 50MP sensor is all it's cracked up to be.

I don't need 50MP, personally, and I will hold out for the 5Dm4. However, if this pricing is accurate, it will be very attractive to numerous shooters.

Disappointments for me are...

AF system is not equal or exceeds those of the 7D Mark II
No mention of GPS
No mention of WiFi
No mention of NFC
No mention of 4K (which to me would justify it costing beyond $3,000)

I would not take the spec list as final and or Gospel; it was hocked from a Japanese camera website translated by Google translate. Probably just a sneak peek... next week should give us a full spec breakdown.

Wasn't there a "Mark II" of the Tokina 11-20mm that launched in Spring 2013?

Is this a "Mark III"?

I'm getting confused with the history/versions of this lens.

Not excited.  ISO 6400 camera is not for me.  Where is 5D MK4?

Coming in August - according to Northlight.

Am I bonkers for having no interest in this 5Ds business? 50MP just seems silly to me.

I'll be waiting until august to see what the 5D4 brings.

I'm sure they will increase the ISO, but Dynamic Range is still lacking with this camera

I would assume this is the main reason for the delay in the 5D Mark IV. Canon must be well aware by now that they can't just drop a 5D3 with a few tweaks and a bump in ISO. They got raked over the coals by Nikon and their loyal fans with the weak DR in the 5D3.

Fingers crossed they are listening, and using the extra time to deliver a solid punch in August.

Come on, 5D4, I have high hopes for you!

However I really like the design and the quality of light from those so my suggestion is the Original Westcott Apollo.
That one also has fiberglass rods but I hope they are more durable than the Chinese copies.

I <3 the Westcott Apollo. It's definitely my favorite flash modifier... ever! Such even, soft and beautiful light. Definitely my go-to for mobile shoots where light-weight is a priority, and the monolights need to stay at home.

Just don't forget the good ol' Offset Arm from Paul Buff to make the most of your softbox. Check the nerd-video I just made for details:

Software & Accessories / Re: Tripods - CF or Aluminum...?
« on: December 05, 2014, 08:12:53 PM »
I also have both Al and CF tripods, and my experience with them is that the CF tripods settle down much quicker than Al ones after making adjustments to the camera.

My advice... stop bumping into your damn tripods!  ;)  :P

Honestly, Neuro's links sums it up well. Although, their summary leaves a lot to be desired:

Digging deeper, if you want a tripod which dissipates vibrations as quickly as possible, then the carbon fiber versions are again much preferred, although if you're operating in strong winds, the heavier aluminium models may have the edge. If you shoot in very cold conditions, the carbon fiber models won't become anywhere near as chilly to the touch, although leg warmers on the aluminium versions will equally make them easy to handle.

Now, you're probably thoroughly confused, but look at it in a positive light... you can't really go wrong with either.
