So i am reading a lot of awesome reviews on both STE3 and YN-622c, and obviously the pricing is miles a apart, especially you have to go with the 600EX-RT option, so if i have to go more than 1 speedlite, that can get really expensive.

Am i missing some important function off Canon's RT series?

anybody try both?

Lighting / Highend Youngnuo vs Canon 430EXII
« on: January 14, 2013, 11:37:07 AM »
so i am looking for a speedlite for general use that woke hurt my wallet much.

Look at Youngnuo high end ETTL flash, 565, 568, which guide number is rated at 58, but i do see some post claiming a test shows similar output to the 430EXII.

so my question is, what do i get from the higher end Younguo that i don't get from the Canon? pros & cons? the 430EXII is roughly $250.

i understand the 565 has external battery pack option, which the 430 don't.

Camera would be 5Dc, currently with YN-465 which i don't put on top of my hotshoe.

currently using Sandisk Ultra (probably their slowest card now  :-\ ) on my 5D1.

i find this combo to be very slow for writing speed (don't really care for reading speed).

and seeing these Extreme (not Extreme Pro) CF cards goes for $35 for 8GB at B&H, wondering if running one of these faster CF would benefit me at all? or is it limited by my buffer? which seems to be small?

I shoot Jpeg most of the time now becoz of this, shooting Raw is really lagging.

i assume the 5d2 and 5d3 has larger buffer, wondering what user with older Canon body like mine are using and want to hear their experience.

Thanks!

Sigma do listen!

if it perform similar to their 50mm, and 85mm, filter size 77mm or lower, price lower than 85mm, sounds like we have a good alternative for the 35L, Nikkor and Zeiss.

I realize 50mm is the cheapest to make, the 85mm is around 1k. hopefully this could be in the 700 range?

EOS Bodies / 6D max shutter speed, 1/4000 or 8000 ???
« on: September 17, 2012, 12:53:37 PM »
so all rumor site shown this 6D with 1/8000 shutter speed, but official Canon website says 1/4000

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/professional/products/professional_cameras/digital_slr_cameras/eos_6d#Specifications

this could be a deal breaker for somebody, but the D600 offer the same, i would be surprise with 1/4000.

also this image also shown 1/4000, usually product pic like this shown the maximum capability? like max battery levle, Wifi on, GPS on, highest ISO, etc.

Third Party Manufacturers / Hoping Sigma can make a 35L alternative
« on: June 28, 2012, 10:33:43 AM »
Ok, so i can't afford the 35L @ $1479 USD, and the 35mm F2.0 is not really what i am looking for.

I hope Sigma can make a 35mm F1.4 HSM just like the 50mm & 85mm, and have it price between the two.

I am sure this lens would sell well for Nikon and Sony mount as well, since the Nikkor 35mm F1.4 is ~$1650 and the Sony G 35mm is ~$1500

anybody else want the same thing?

EOS Bodies - For Video / T4i continuous Video AF, CDAF or PDAF?
« on: June 05, 2012, 10:12:25 AM »
ok, i can't wait to see the announcement on friday; I need the continuous AF becoz i shoot toddler all the time, and i can't keep up with MF, my temporary solution is my Sony 5n.

i always want a VDSLR that can do continuous AF in Video mode, but if the T4i video AF performance is same as the Nikon D7000, with sluggish video CDAF, then i don't see why it took Canon that long to bring that kind of AF into DSLR.  unless the CDAF they use is the same speed as Olympus EM-5 and Panasonic GX1? that would be interesting!

i hope the T4i or the upcoming 70D would have same performance as the Sony Alpha DSLR thou..... just without the limitation.

Canon General / 5Dc Rear LCD screen problem
« on: August 16, 2011, 10:14:33 AM »
so my 5Dc has been treating me well for ~1 year (i am the 2nd owner) till recently, i have experience the rear LCD screen to appear like Posterized, glass filter like, or infrared like. This doesn't happen all the time, just occasionally, but i am afraid the problem will come more frequent, want to see if any 5Dc owner here has the same problem as i do.

picture from the CF card won't be effected, still came out nice on my computer, viewfinder has no problem as well.

If i press on the bottom of the LCD screen, i could give a temporary fix, but afraid to do that often.

my serial # is 3xxxxxx, so its not the early batch of 5D that known to have LCD problem.

called a local Canon certify repair shop, they are not able to give me any quote over the phone, (obviously) just wondering for those who had similar problem, whats the fix if its DIY, or whats the repair cost from Canon.

thanks

EOS Bodies / How long do i have to wait for continous AF on VDSLR?
« on: October 22, 2010, 10:48:31 AM »
ok, i don't shoot movies, i only use the video function to shoot home videos, my daughter start running around, and i want to be able to continously focus, i tried manual focus, but i am not as fast as my daughter.

the Nikon D7000 sounds very tempt, as well as the Sony A55, or even the A77 which should come early to mid next year.  Before i make the jump to Nikon/Sony, i would like to see what Canon "will" offer me.

if they offer continous AF:

1) would they introduce in the lower end model (T3i) or in the higher end model (5D3) ?

2) do you see any other methods beside contrast detection and translucent mirror?

thanks!
