Lenses / Re: Any difference bw used and new 24-105mm lens?
« on: April 05, 2013, 05:45:49 PM »
Hello, I do not want to create new thread, so decided to post here. Just few days ago I received new 6D + 24-105mm f4, but I was surprised that "Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS" lens hood (EW-83H) actually little bit loose when it attached to lenses and its annoying a lot... Even when I hold and move camera just little I can hear how it wobble little bit :/ With new lenses and hood, which are note worn should not be like this I think. Maybe you can suggest something and maybe somebody experienced the same?

Thank you for your time,
Denis
I'd ask Canon for a replacement hood.  It should not do that!  Call or e-mail customer service and see if you can exchange it.
 
Having worked with plastic molding a lot, it is common for shrinkage or warping to happen if temperatures and timing are not perfect.
 
QA should catch it if it happens to a batch, but sometimes just one part can have a issue.
 
I'm not in love with the hood designs on the newer lenses, but mine are all solid.
Thanks for advise.  I'm also curious about if barrel should be loose little bit when lens extended / zoom in completely, or it should be stiff 100%. I mean end of the lens wobbly just a little (my tamron 17-50 and tamron 70-300 zoom lenses also have that and even little bit more). Maybe I'm little bit too much paranoid right now, and expect even too much from L series lenses, but thats just because if something wrong I can request not only to change lens hood but lens also.

Thank you for your time,

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: yes or no..6d for video...
« on: March 05, 2013, 05:02:04 PM »
If 6D not good, when 550D, 600D, 60D, 7D, 5D Mark II, etc... also not good, with which until now people creating nice and interesting stuff, and 6D have more advantage in video than any of those.

Lenses / Re: Canon 6D (Body Only) which lens to purchase?
« on: February 26, 2013, 01:33:23 PM »
Few months ago I would recommend Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 VC (I was planing for my self also), but after reading so many reports about how it drains battery from 6D, not all the copies as sharp as they should be, some very soft at f2.8, also theres reports even in this forum about problems with first element glass (sorry I do not remember all details and url).

For my 550D I have 17-50mm VC 2.8 tamron -> very soft at f2.8. Tamron 70-300mm f4-5.6, was very good for it price, but few weeks ago, after small/light impact I already have problems with it...

If you're on budget, I would recommend to not risk with Tamron, because theres all the time big chance, that your copy will be not perfect or something else will come out later, and take Ef 24-105mm f4 + one or two good primes f1.4-2. I'm planing the same combo at the moment. IS important for me, because of video.

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Problems with Canon mk3 locking up
« on: February 25, 2013, 07:20:08 PM »
Conclusion: If you have many SanDisk Cards test the camera and if you have problems return it and demand your money back. Or forget the 5D Mark III and wait what is coming next. The image quality from the 6D is better than the image quality from the 5D Mark III, but the shutter in the 5D Mark III is better build.
Still considering 6D, but from video perspective 5D Mark III looks better. Not only because 6D have problems with moire, no headphone jack, but also I found discussion in YouTube Video: 5D mark III reviewed by Philip Bloom, there people was asking author how it compares to 6D and one of the Philip Blooms answers, that sharpening video in post doesnt work that good, like with 5D mark III. (the same problem like with 5D mark II)

EOS Bodies / Re: New Cinema Camera & Lenses for NAB 2013
« on: February 12, 2013, 06:58:11 PM »
I bet they have this wrong, there isn't really any room for product differentiation between the c100 and the c300. I bet we finally see the 5D-C.

The black magic cinema camera is poised to steal market share from Canon in video, but they are still getting their supply chain figured out with 3-6 months of back-orders. Now is the time for Canon to retaliate.

A 5D-C that records raw (at actual 1080 res), with an s35 crop mode, but doesn't handle jello, moire, and rolling shutter as well as the c100-c500 line, or have any pro features.

All for $4K (US).
That make sense. I would like to see new generation of 5D-C.

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Video 5D III vs. 1DX
« on: February 03, 2013, 12:57:05 PM »
I do now own 5D mark III or 1DX, but Philip Bloom mentioned, that 1DX is sharper and better in low light in video thank Mark III.

Quote
The super pro body the 1DX is everything video-wise that the 5DmkIII should have been. The image is just gorgeous and lovely and sharp…but it’s almost twice the price. It’s actually fewer megapixels, which also means it is better in low light…for some reason though, they left the headphone jack off this…why?!?! I love this camera enormously. Check out my Safari mini doc below where everything bar the main interviews and slow motion (shot on the FS700) was shot on the 1DX, and the “Portrait of a projectionist” mini doc which was shot entirely on the 1DX.

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: How did they make this vid?
« on: January 16, 2013, 05:16:37 AM »
First shot probably was made with slider, the rest with flycam. Not sure about lenses, but for this kind of shooting I would probably choose ~35mm, or maybe even wider, and aperture not opened too much, because will be difficult to catch focus at all the time moving subject.

More comprehensive review by LearningCameras: http://www.learningcameras.com/reviews/4-dslrs/91-canon-6d-review

Noticed that the video was sharper in the 6D when I put it against the 5D mark III. Maybe Canon removed something that allowed the video to be sharper but allowed Moire. I noticed a bit more in the 6D but not a huge amount, but then again, I didn't shoot brick walls or roof tops where this issue would be seen the most.

Maybe little different in video sharpness because both cameras were using different lenses? I think 6D was with new canon 35mm f2 IS and 5D mark III with new Sigma 35mm f1.4

Maybe it was good idea to not hurry with 6D and wait for January 8th. Maybe some good surprises.

Lenses / Re: Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 or Canon 24-105 f/4
« on: December 22, 2012, 02:49:24 PM »
I had 24-105 and sold it for the tamron..my copy is perfectly fine and it also has a 6year warranty so don't be affraid.
Buying from third party companies like Tamron, theres all the time risk that something will be wrong. I have canon 550D and Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 VC for about three years. I'm not happy with 17-50mm f2.8 VC, difficult to get it sharp, its soft at f2.8, sometimes I get errors, time to time a lot of mist focus shots and sometimes I even not sure if it suppose to work like this. You must to get used to them and when you'll be able to make good shots.

Took only once this lens to beach and second day discovered pieces of sand inside. But I was also not happy with canon 17-55mm f2.8. It was very sharp, but build quality was very weak, maybe even worse than Tamron. I send canon back after one week.

Thats why this is one of my reasons to move to full frame. Still not sure if that will be 6D or Mark III. Im not professional, but one or another decision have its own pluses and cons.

The same dilema about lens. I can try to risk again to move to tamron 24-70mm, but who knows how many weeks I will lose if something will be wrong, replacing it over and over. I have tamron 70-300mm VC and they really improved in focus system. At least I know if I'll go with Canon 24-105mm f4 theres much less risk and I'm not afraid to use it any time in beach or in bad weather condition. And If I'll have really low lite condition, I can use my Sigma 50mm f1.4 prime.

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Canon 6D - fantastic video
« on: December 22, 2012, 08:58:48 AM »
Its not new, it was published on Dec 4, 2012 by CanonFrance. Video really looks not bad. I can not see big diferents in quality from Mark III. I think even with 550D you can make this. More important who's behind the camera. Still very atractive ISO, full frame, and good build body.

Lenses / Re: 35mm f/2 IS USM available in Japan

Should be great lens for Video. Cant wait to see first tests.

Two weeks already watching for this and thats why I started to consider mark3 over 6D. I'm only not sure if thats not grey import. I never had experience and do not know whats risk.


It's a store guarantee and not Canon so it's a grey import.

So if something will happened, lets say after more than one year, over store cover, if I'll send camera to CANON because of some problems, they will not accept?

In this case theres better option for £2,569.99 and 3 Years seller repair warranty covering parts and labour:
