EOS Bodies / Re: High Megapixel Camera Coming in 2015 [CR3]
« on: December 17, 2014, 08:58:50 AM »
Excellent news, same as many others not a camera for me but this is going to be very interesting!
I'm assuming that this is not going to be the 5DIV though! that I think would be really bad news.

I could actually answer yes to three of those options

is it sad that I enjoy reading manuals!!!

I used to have the full set of every AutoCAD manual, the hardback period was gorgeous  :)

love this artists work he stands on the shoulders of giants

and he provided proof if proof was needed that nikon cameras have so much dr that they can pull the moon in front of clouds

I mean what's not to Lik  ;)

+ 1 for this excellent little combo! always thought it would make a great street package


Nice image...
Would be impossible with my 7D.

You could do it with MagicLantern's DualISO feature.

I think you could do it with a G7X.

in fact the only word you may have missed is 'easily'

just looks like an HDR image to me  :-\

However i agree with the Rob i think that sun is a distraction to the image. The black and white looks much better, highpass and slight sepia tone. I always feel that i can get away with much more noise in a black and white photo and it still looks correct.

+1 on that. That's how I was going to go but discovered my version of Dx0 Pro doesn't allow me to process from that camera :(

PS do love the idea of this being a monthly thing!

Canon General / Re: Canon U.S.A. Prices going down?

This implies a 40% drop in Canon prices over the same period. Will this be a bonanza for U.S. Canon shooters? I hope so!

I'm guessing that would mean in UK a 40% rise in prices!  :o  ;D

For my personal taste, the images on the left are better in color, contrast and has more organic grains.


That's two for the left

My dear Mom's best friends
Singer, The best sewing machine in this world.

I remember this type of Singer sewing machine from my distant childhood. Good memories.

Yes, the whole top hinged up I remember all the coloured bobbins were kept inside the wooden base, memories indeed.

Edit: meant to say nice photos surapon, isn't it great when a picture can evoke a memory, emotion or even a smell. Thanks for posting  :)

I don't think he's appealing to or interested in photographers therefor the quality is irrelevant if you get my drift

Is it just me or did we lose the mid-zoom aspect of the lens?
Since she has a "fast" mid-zoom already I'm not sure that fast means aperture.  Maybe focus speed?

Camera stuff is expensive and you hate to get it wrong.  Lens and camera choices can be very personal things for someone who has been involved in the hobby for a while.  I would recommend making a creative card with a "gift certificate" for a photography shopping trip.  Take a day and take her to a couple of camera stores, a nice lunch.  Stop on the way home a pick up something for super and a nice bottle of wine.  She'll get the lens of her dreams, not ours, and the memories of the day every time she uses the new equipment.

+1 that sounds like a really nice thoughtful day. All bases covered, job done!

The one thing I wouldn't do is get a camera body.

Good luck whatever you choose to do!
