EOS Bodies / Re: Will Canon Answer the D4s? [CR2]
« on: January 11, 2014, 02:53:12 PM »
Nice topic  (not)

Reminds me on the iphone IOS vs Android topic.
What is the answer from Apple to or what is the answer from Android to......etc.

It's very easy you don't like Canon because they don't have an answer to the D800 or D4s ( what ever the specs will be). Buy the Nikon and stop complaning.

Rather share usefull information on this forum then these never ending stories.

Some people need very fast and good AF and less need for DR

Fabulously sharp and great colours,  I assume you had plenty of light. Would you mind sharing the EXIF data and which equipment you used please?
Cheers Brian

If you click on the image it will open the images on my website.
All exif information is underneath the image.

Greetings ,

no other manufacturer is bold enough to bring such a stunt!!! hats off!!

the comments all over the internet speak volumes.

this canon camera, again, shows us who brings innovations to the biz... SONY and NIKON.  8)


Canon 550d - 18mp - DXO Mark sensor score: 66
Canon 600d - 18mp - DXO Mark sensor score: 65
Canon 650d - 18mp - DXO Mark sensor score: 62
Canon 700d - 18mp - DXO Mark sensor score: 5?

A freelancer without work I guess. ;)
Seems many photographers have plenty of time for this kind of topics.

12 fps does not really offer much.  Sounds nice in theory but for wildlife I think it’s excessive


is it !!
Because of the 10/12 fps I have more pictures to choose from a burst of 10/12 fps.

« on: October 22, 2012, 02:14:49 PM »
I hope they do a better job with this lens than they did with the 500mm f/4 II and 600mm f/4 II.

???????
Please explain.
I am very very happy with this lens.
It's awesome.

Or do you mean the delivery time after announcement.

Wow!  Great shots.  Can't believe how good they are at ISO 800!  Can you tell me what lens/converter combo you used for the ones listed as 840mm?

I spoke to the Canon US service center in Irvine yesterday, and was told:
a) the firmware itself is not yet available; keep watching the support site
b) the newest bodies (e.g. 1DX, 5D3, 4Ti) will be able to update the lens firmware

So if you have one of the affected lenses, but not one of the newest bodies, find a friend that does so you won't have to ship your lens to a service center.

After waiting patiently for the firmware to post, I finally called Canon USA again.  Turns out that only the new 40mm can be upgraded via the newer bodies, so I do need to send my 300 in.  The good news is that they sent me a prepaid shipping label.

The 300/400/500/600 II will also be upgraded by Canon service centers with the 1Dx,5D3,4Ti, but the firmware of these super telelenses will not be made public like the firmware of the 40mm !!

Strange just got the new firmware installed on my lens.
Done in the Netherlands by Techrepair.

When checking the firmware you also see the 600 II firmware now.
See screenshot

The lens Firmware will not be available for download (like camera firmware) !!!
