Thanks Canon for this. But it took you approx 3 years to figure out these issues? Really?

Congratulations. Love his smile...

It seems like you do not need the 1dx. I think a cheaper, smaller camera will be more appropriate. Am going by "need to save money for vacation."

Until they step into 2012 and put 4k RAW video in the cameras... I don't care. Even GoPro has 4K footage now... Canon is turning into the Apple of the camera world.. forever playing "catch-up."

I sold my 5Dm3 last year and moved to RED cameras. i WISH they'd make a 4k RAW camera so I could pick one up for backup.

You don't shoot stills right? 5d3 is a stills camera. A very nice stills camera.

Taken on a Minolta x-500 with a Vivitar 400mm lens.  Scanned with a Minolta Dimage 5400 Scan Elite.  As I recall the stock was something fairly vanilla like Superia 200.

This was actually for an assessment, I was doing a photography module at University, I printed this mono conversion onto inkjet foil, looked pretty good.

A really nice image!  :)

Yes beautiful!

Our favorite expert says "D800E is very slightly sharper, and somewhat more susceptible to moiré patterns and aliasing artifacts.

Aliasing and moiré are potential problems only when photographing man-made things like fabrics, brick walls, screens and tiled roofs that have fine, repeating patterns. The only other potential problems are when photographing star fields or sparkles from the sun on the tops of waves on the sea.

Moiré never happens with natural subjects, except if you're a bug photographer. In any case, you have to work at it to find subjects for which aliasing and moiré are problems, so for me, the slight sharpness improvement of the D800E is more than worth it."

Will this be the first time Canon comes with two versions? I so doubt this….

Bryan's site:

Contrary to some current rumors, the Sigma 24-105mm f/4.0 DG OS HSM Art Lens has not been discontinued. According to Sigma Corporation of America, "The 24-105mm is most definitely not discontinued." This rumor most likely arose from the fact that this lens is very hard to find in stock right now. Sigma assured me that this lens is very much a part of their current line. "We are behind on production but are working on catching up." Sigma is experiencing "... really high demand and fulfilling all the orders across the world has been tough." That is good news to me as I really like the 24-105 OS Art Lens.

Weird.  If you go to the Sigma site and pull up a list of their discontinued lenses, this lens does not appear on that list.  If you pull up a list of their current lenses, this lens is still being sold (at least it appears that you can order it.

I can understand why Canon shooters would not choose this lens over the Canon version; but I would imagine that other system shooters might like it.  If I were in the market for a zoom lens for my Nikon, I might have considered this lens.

Excellent. I checked this too and found it to be correct. Hmmm. And is still available for sale at BH.

Wait for it….. 2.8 IS will surface.

Thanks Sanj.  It was the first time I tried anything like that and I wondered if it was objectionable for a nice white lily to be altered in that way but then I said why not it's a free country.  I know, I'm too self conscious being new to the world of photography.  :)


I wanted to add: it does not matter to me if it was done in camera or post. But did not. :)

Don like so many things it's easy to tell the left from the right but it gets muddy in the middle.  N G is in business and they aren't saints but I appreciate that they are at least trying to keep photos out that have been seriously doctored because they'd self destruct if they didn't.  Guess we've strayed off topic! ;)

Here's a shot that it is not edited, it's illuminated by prism light.  Unnatural for sure but not edited and it's OK by N G standards.


Beautiful photo.
