EOS Bodies - For Stills / Finally a DXOMark win for Canon
« on: April 04, 2013, 03:04:51 PM »
At a per megapixel level the Canon 5D Mark III sensor is sharper than the D800 and with the lens line up Canon sensor manages to get the best out of the lenses compared to the Nikon!

 Finally some good news :D 


EOS Bodies / Canon 5D Mark III Price Drop UK
« on: August 01, 2012, 03:42:48 PM »
The 5D Mark III is now retailing at £2799 in the UK at Jessops, a few days back it dropped to £2899 from its starting price of £2999.

This is basically a £200 drop in price!

Meanwhile Digitalrev are selling the 5D Mark III at £2169!!!!!! Yes its an import but still £600 cheaper!!!!

EOS Bodies - For Video / Act of Valor
« on: April 01, 2012, 07:46:51 AM »
Looking to get some post tools and was looking at the Adobe website and the Bandito Brothers movie! And they shot that movie using the 5D Mark II! I mean the shots looked amazing!

The 5D Mark II really is a great camera and for all its short coming in the right hands is awesome, and I believe that the Mark III basically improved on the whole package without focusing on any particular area! So whilst the MPX has not increased a lot, in every other aspects it has improved:

Manual Audio Control

EOS Bodies - For Video / Video Review @EOSHD
« on: March 27, 2012, 07:58:47 PM »
EOSHD guy is not happy with the Mark III because of he codec seems to add noise to the video and when compared to the GH2 (HACKED), the GH2 fair relatvley well and is far cheaper!

I have seena  few other sites bragging on about the GH2 (HACKED) vs other cameras!

Now I recall Digitalrev reviewed the GH2 using native video and it was pretty much a coin toss between that and the 60D and in some parts the 60 besting it.

So to conclude is the 5D Mark III waiting for a hack before we see its true video potential? Also will any hacks trigger Canon to make it official or fix the codecs as they did with the 5D Mark II?

And finally whats the chances of the 4K DSLR being a 8MP camera? Essentially shooting stills at 24 FPS with no AF! It would be a no wow photo camera, but for video it could be the sharpest around as long as the codec is done right!

EOS Bodies / Mirrorless Wish
« on: February 19, 2012, 08:10:29 AM »
I have a 5D MKII and also a Lumix G3 and Sony Nex5n. I use these 3 cameras when travelling and fid alwasy the 5D is the king of IQ. Even though the sensor is 4 years old, it easily beats out the G3 and Sony!

I think that Canon could easily build a mirrorless camera around the 5D Mark II sensor, and it will be the boss of the mirrorless world! It will even given the m9 a rund for its money, all they need to do is combine with the DiGic 5!!!

The only issue would be lenses for the system! But if canon use the Leica model for Flange range they could really have small lenses!

I dream but would love to see a FF mirrorless that is affordable!

p.s. both G3 and Nex5 in daylight offer great IQ!

EOS Bodies / G1X Sensor?
« on: January 11, 2012, 09:14:41 AM »
The sensor size of the G1x seems an oddball for me, whilst its not an APS-C , it is still slightly bigger then a M43. however does have the 4:3 asepct ratio!

Someone in another forum pointed out that the GH2 sesnor is almost identical in size to the G1x. Could this be an indication that Canon's mirrorless will be a m43?

I think it would make sense as m43 is smaller then the dslr, whilst maintaining good IQ. which is something similar to canon statement recently.

As for the Nikon the V/J1 has got some good reviews, but i think sensor is to small for long term!

now if canon join M43, it would be intersting as already lots of great lenses for the system!

the only reason canon wil not join is because of a EF adapator with autofocus and aperture control! And will not want to hae their lenses on other manufacturers bodies!

Though i do hope they join M43 as i believe the system is the middle road between dslr and compact. And like HTML 5 a open standard is being embraced by many big manufacturers, i hope camera manufacturers use the same.

EOS Bodies / 4K DSLR
« on: September 18, 2011, 08:14:33 AM »
I was looking at the spec of the new S100 and was looking at the 9.6 fps burst rate and i believe this is the fastest for a P&S camera. Now if we speculate that the Figic 5 is not over utilized in this P&S we could assume that one Digic 5 processor could probably handle a burst rate of maybe 12 frames a second! at 12MP now if a DSLR were to have 2 x Digic processor we could easily hit 24P at 12MP which is greater then 4K. now whic ever way the sensor is cropped to get 4K.

If canon unveiled its next DSLR camera (5DMKiii, 7D MKii) with 4K video they will bring 4K video to the masses and will literally change the game again (5D the first time)!!!

This would kick off big time in Hollywood as filmmakers will have access to cheap 4K cameras that are small and can be used in so many scenes!

And that is what im guessing will be the Hollywood announcement is that 4K cameras that are cheap and with FF sensor means DOF!!!!!!
