EOS Bodies / Re: After a 50MP camera what is the next breakthrough?
« on: February 11, 2015, 08:09:32 AM »
A real breakthrough would be, Zeiss glass/quality for a Canon price, that would be really something!
50 mpx is already way too much (yes i am going to buy the 5Ds-R), more focus on the glass with BIG improvements, that should be the focus instead of even more pixels. I don't care about video at all!
Oh, and lets not forget, clean (and i mean iso 100 clean) iso 3200 images!
Lets keep on dreaming ;-)

Everyone shoots from the visitor center, it's not that interesting. Book a sunrise tour who will bring you to Totem Pole (you are not allowed there going on your own) and make some nice sunrise images from there. When you have more time, you also could consider a short trip to Teardrop Arch and a longer overnight camp on top of Hunts Mesa. That brings in more spectacular images from Monument Valley than shooting from the visitor center, although for all these tours you need to book a Navajo guide too.

Good luck and have fun.
Please tell me more about the overnight camp. I haven't finalized my plans so am flexible about the time I have there. Thanks

I have booked a tour from this site: http://www.monumentvalley.com/Pages/english_homepage.html

See some images i took during that tour:

Fantastic photos!! Did you do the overnight camping tour? Thanks

When you want to do Hunts Mesa you camp ALWAYS. All the other tours you can do at sunrise or sunset.

EOS Bodies / Re: Bingo! New Canon 5Ds has 50.6 MP new rumored specs
« on: February 02, 2015, 04:23:56 AM »
I see no GPS or Wifi in the specs. For me GPS would be  a very useful feature.

EOS Bodies / Re: More About the EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R
« on: January 30, 2015, 09:19:27 AM »
Who cares what kind of sensor is inside, i want maximum quality. Sony, Canon, i don't care at all. I'm a landscaper, i'm also not interested in a fast gun. High iso, yes nice, but only when it's usable, i have nothing on 12.600 images when i can't use it use. Superb 3200 would already be something to shoot northern lights.
