Lenses / DigitalRev review of the new 16-35 L IS
« on: July 04, 2014, 04:07:17 AM »
Don't know if any of you have seen it yet, so here it is.
DigitalRev just did a review of the new 16-35 L IS, and they like it :)

Canon General / Trip to Sri Lanka
« on: February 24, 2014, 09:58:06 AM »
Hey guys,

didn't know where to exactly post this but here it goes :D

I'm going to Sri Lanka in April/May and plan to shoot a lot. We won't be going to resorts and such but more to look at temples, a nice beach or two, the cities, tea pickers, we will be going to Adams Peak and to a Natural Reserve to check out some wildlife.

My plan is to take some nice landscape and people shoots as well as usual stuff.

Do you have some good recommendations on what to bring? (Lenses, Bag, other stuff?)

Thanx :)

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: New Pentax 645d ii is coming next week

Cool, so there will now be 3 camera systems with the Sony sensor.
PhaseOne launched first, Hasseblad just said they would and now Pentax... cool...
Sony seem to be going into the sensor business strong.


Enough already!

Look, the D4 and 1Dx markets are not really competitive. The products mirror one another and almost no one at that level is about to switch systems. The brand choice at that level is not driven by any of the things people are arguing about here.

A D4 buyer is already a Nikon user and isn't going to switch systems. A 1D user is already a Canon buyer and also isn't going to switch systems.

On the contrary, I can give two examples from the internet alone where long-term Nikon users have switched to Canon just for the 1Dx (coincidentally both guys' names are Matt) and another has been "debating":
Just sayin'...

And how about Scott Kelby ... He shoots both, but mainly uses Canon now ...

This is interesting. It says 2013 and 11, that could be November or 11th of December since I don't speak Korean :D
But it is in 2013... Interesting...

Let's just hope the announcement will be for something good as well.
For me, I would like:

Full frame
no low pass filter
30Mpix or above
5D body
wifi control
iso up to 100k, clean to 12k
nice long battery life
LCD with 1Million pixels and above
Can be DSLR or Mirorless ( OVF or EVF)

That's basically it :D

Let's wait and see ..

The new mechanism could be something similar to Schneider ?

Hopefully the prices won't be too high.  ... and pigs fly :D

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: 10 stop High quality ND filter

Thank you for the test shots Paul. They clearly show that there is a color shift, but I guess there is some in all filters and it looks like it can be corrected several ways to achieve the (mostly) simmilar result.

Thank you for the great feedback. It is interesting to see, as I thought most of you would have either the LEE, Singh Ray or Heliopan. But looks like most like the B+W. That is good, as it is cheaper than the others and it is a good solid filter.

I was initially thinking about LEE, but it is expensive and really hard to get, so I guess I'll go with the B+W.

Thank you again. Interesting discussion.

Third Party Manufacturers / 10 stop High quality ND filter
« on: June 20, 2013, 12:12:04 PM »
Hey guys,

I was wondering how many of you use a 10 stop ND filter and which one do you recommend. I am looking to buy a good one, not to get too much color cast or vigneting. So far I found Lee big stopper, b+w, singh ray ...

How much difference is there, because the prices vaty a lot...
Also, do you use a lens screw on or a square type that you need a holder for.

Thank you


Since you have a Nikon D4X in your signature :) tell us a little bit more :)


One of the 7D Mark II / 7D X (or whatever called) prototypes has a new sensor design in it. One prototype has two old processors in it, an other prototype has the new one in it.

But you will definetely see a new image enhancement technology (even in the new high megapixel FF). But Nikon is not sleeping. The new top of the line Nikon performs very well and is very well tested.

The image quality is a big step up like the D7100 compared to the D600.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1 ds mark3 vs 5d mark 3 image quality
« on: January 07, 2013, 07:09:47 AM »
Thanks for all the responses... They are quite different though... I guess an option is to wait for the large Mpix camera, but at that point my 1ds will probably be worth a lot less on the market and the new camera will most probably be very expensive if we look at recent Canon prices.... Ah decisions, decisions :)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 1 ds mark3 vs 5d mark 3 image quality
« on: January 06, 2013, 12:14:19 PM »

Im thinking about changing my trusty old 1ds3 for 5d3. Im not a pro, so I shoot mostly for my fun, but I do love photography and printing large. I mostly shoot landscape, portraits, events and other stuff as well.

I would like to upgrade, as I miss the iso in the 1ds3 and it does get quite heavy carrying around all day :)
Also the technology on the 1ds3 is already a bit dated ...(hate the low res screen) ...
If someone has both cameras, can you please compare the image quality and any pros and cons for the cameras.
Maybe for IQ, weather sealing(used the 1 this weekend in pouring rain), print quality, high iso, af,...


The link is missing a 'h' in the start, so It doesnt work :)
