Notice how Canon allows F mount lenses in their bodies but Nikon never does it? Nikon users are snobs while they fling their exclusive bodies while taunting us that they can use their lenses on our cameras? This is a slap in the faces of us all.

EOS Bodies / Re: Hardware Hack for EOS Cameras Coming Soon? [CR1]

Great job, guys. Canon gets the best technical minds. I hope it is 15-stop DR, 4K RAW video and 10 fps shooting for 5D3. Nikon fanboys will be committing suicide. What will be their excuse?

Canon General / Re: Off Brand: Nikon Announces the D4S

All this fuss about a camera that was made obsolete by 1DX 2 years ago. Nikon will be out of business soon so that all remaining people will be joining the Canon camp and taking pictures with our cameras. I am so proud of our engineers who have given us epic cameras and put these nikonians in their place. By the way, have you seen any pulitzer picture taken with the D4? Yeah, thought so.

A 5dII/5dIII/1DX/1-D C in the hands of a competent film maker can produce a lot more compelling footage than a digital arri or a RED scarlet in the hands of an unimaginative person whose only qualifications are 100 grand spent on film school.

Precisely. Give me an Oscar-winning movie shot on a 5D3 than a crappy Youtube video shot on Phantom 65.

Canon is in whole another level than Nikon. If your production has only few Gs or want temporary cameras to be blown up in action scenes, Canon's got your back. We know that Sony, Arri, etc are among the elites, but Canon is offering poor-man's devices to attempt to compete. For low budget, you have the C-series. How many 5Ds have been blown up in action movies compared to D90 or D800?

Nikon, on the other hand, is just not trying.

Photographers have a rather high opinion of themselves. They are probably the least earners in terms of industrial average and have rather substantial investments in their assets, but take offense when somebody gives credit to their gear.

If you are a painter, you could argue that it is your talent and skill that contribute most to the product you are developing. After all, having good quality canvas or paint alone is not going to translate into good painting. But a good quality lens and a good quality camera will give a good quality photo UNLESS the operator sucks. Of course, great photographers can get great results with great cameras, but the skill and talent necessary for great photos is not as great as photographers would like to believe. No offense, but we are in this rumor site where we talk nothing but gear -- so, gear does matter quite a bit in photography.

So, when somebody compliments your gear, just smile and reply back, "Thank you, without this expensive gear, my photo would look shitty just like coming from your iphone." That is the truth.

(since Canon is that leader).

Kodak called and agreed with you.

That is an ugly camera. People will be flocking to Canon, so hold on to your hats folks. I will be putting my gear on craigslist to lure wary Nikon users.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: RAW or JPEG

shoot raw and forget about exposure because
Nikon D800 can let you underexpose as much as 5 stops and rescue that in raw  8)

Why would you want to underexpose and rescue when you can just expose properly and don't strain the sensor too much? Did you underexpose your film and hope to "increase" the exposure in the darkroom?

Sensor capabilities are overblow. Shoot properly, frame properly, and 1mpx camera is fine for all of our facebook needs.

I am Ren Kockwell and I only shoot JPGs because in 5 years, RAWs will be unreadable anyway. I will be shooting away with my Fujifilm while you are crying for losing your RAWs. Plus I can take JPGs and my floppy disk can hold all 2 of them, where as I would need 15 floppies to hold just one RAW. And don't get me started on cheap crap like D800 with its mega pixels. My 12 year old D1 takes just as good picture and gives me 5 fps, without clogging my 2004 Mac Book Pro.

I know everybody has invested in lenses and accessories, so jumping ship is not practical, but here is what that 3 stop of extra DR can mean (5D3 on top, D800 on the bottom):

Cognitive dissonance is very high with Canon customers who just shelled out a couple of Gs on their imaging equipment. They will try to justify by saying that "I always expose properly, so who cares about pulling shadows", "I shoot JPG anyway", "I like how Canon feels in my hands", or "Canon sells way more cameras".

Canon just does not seem to be able to break that 11 point DR. If only their customers make fuss about it... but  Canon customers are not demanding sensor quality and Canon is gladly shipping out decade old technology.

Thou shalt not believe in false scores of DxoMark

Thou shalt not praise usefulness of deep shadow details

I read that the 1DX has the 100000 RGB Metering while the 5D3 reuse the 63 dual layers from the 7D.
I wonder if anyone has more info on this.

1) How does it affect image quality or
2) Does it just affect the exposure metering?

1Dx is the best sports/action camera ever made. 5D3 is a poor man's 1Dx that has neither speed nor IQ.
