Lenses / Re: Soon to be Launched EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x

Please allow me to share the photos of the new lens. They are taken in Singapore

Built-in Tele Converter

Lens Hood

Heard from the staff that this lens still remains as a prototype and is not yet launched

Lightroom renders Canon raw files very differently from how DPP does.

I always find myself messing with the Saturation and hue, and vibrance as well

To minimize the different between Lightroom and DPP outputs, they actually created a "Camera Calibration" module. Just got to develop and scroll all the way down, "Camera Standard" tries to emulate the Standard Picture Style Jpeg output of the DPP, so try messing around with that as well.

I always find "adobe standard" making photos slightly pinkish and dull

hope this helps

I am amazed by the community here

questions like these with such a insistent and confident tone which is doomed to be false would initiate a series of "flaming" in other forum.

yet participants of this thread took great lengths to correct the thread-starter again and again politely even though he was not convinced with his mistake

kudos to everyone here

Hope technology = significant improvements in sensor architecture and design

been seeing a lot of that from competing brands like Sony and Nikon, wait Nikon's using Sony's sensor right? So I guess it's just Sony??

<p>There was also another mention of superior low ISO performance from the sensor. New technology will be introduced in this camera and will set the stage for sensor development over the next 2-3 years.</p>

sounds very promising if true.
seen many sensor technology improvements from sony, all baby steps but definitely worth applauding

if canon somehow manage to make a big significant leap forward in terms of sensor technology, it would be fantastic

resolution had nothing to do with it for me

The fact that the D800's dynamic range is almost 2 EVs better than the 5D3 YET at the same time having more than 10 mega-pixels squeeze into it is very very commendable on Nikon's part.

I wouldn't be guilty of thinking that the grass is greener on the other side if the 2 stops Noise improvement on 5DIII's part is more prevalent  in RAW files.

Canon themselves stated that the 2 stop improvement in noise performance that they've mentioned is from jpegs. Which mean that the improvement might come from better in-camera PP rather than a more advance or superior sensor, hence I'm not impressed.

Resolution have nothing to do with this
But it was an added bonus

EOS Bodies / Re: I Talk with James Beltz About the 1D X

I was hoping they're gonna explain the RBG-focusing thing to me

It sounds like some rocket science if you just read the spec-list

I don't think it's any real surprise that there aren't a bunch of "new" features on the 1D X. This is clearly aimed at the professional market.

It isn't unusual or uncommon in any market for the professional-level tools to be fairly conservative in implementing new features. In any industry, professionals put a premium on the reliability, durability and quality of the tools. Added features don't sell products at this level.
That's just one example, but I think the main point is that this camera was designed for a very specific audience.

That made a lot of sense. Thanks for sharing.
I certainly do hope for more new and significant "innovations" or "features" in their non-flagship model
I desire to see dramatic changes to fundamental sensor architecture, but I know I won't be able to see it within the next 3 years or so at least.

I think the most obvious feature/capability that will be pass down to lesser DSLR cameras is the base ISO (rebel or XXXD series). The autofocus advancement will probably reach the next 7D and no further.

EOS Bodies / Re: Light Field camera - Is this a revolution?
« on: October 20, 2011, 03:11:18 PM »
Yes. This is a revolution.

But it's at it's infant stage now.
It cannot replace a decent DSLR in the near future, but that does not mean it can't let say 10 to 20 years from now.

The ability to focus shots after the image has been taken ensures that nothing is essentially missed.
The great once in the life time moments, first baby steps, first kiss, first day at school can now be safely recorded.

Essentially, a camera is suppose to capture moments.
Some may complain that with such a camera, photographers would become even lazier, and just spam their shots, undermining creativity 
But the way I see it, you still need to compose a shot, you still need to decide what should be included or excluded in the frame.
If you're truly a passionate photographer, the liberty to be lazy (focus after the shot) or not  is entirely up to you and not what the camera decides.

If integrated to security/surveillance  cameras, this technology can provide much more information to investigators and better help them crack a case.

There are much more uses for such a technology. But with it being at infant stage, this technology is still fragile. If the industrial giants feel threaten by it and decides to do something to compete against it, it might become unavailable commercially.

It may not yet be able to replace a full-fledge DSLR yet, but all in all, humanity should welcome such innovation and technological advancement.

Good Day
