EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: 6D video for sports
« on: September 30, 2014, 11:55:20 PM »
im new in taking video using dslr.

i got a 6D.
How about auto exposure. from darker scene to brighter scene or vice versa.
Does 6D or other dslr got this feature?

I never heard anyone mentions about this.

Thanks.

You can set the ISO to auto and everything else manual. I don't recommend full auto mode since the camera will often guess wrong.

Better low-light performance would have certainly enhanced a lot of stuff taken after the sun has set.

I won't switch because I can't afford to start over on the lenses.

The 7D2 has better IQ than the 5D3, too.

What the?  ???

Yeah...no. BUT...the 7D2 may have better shadow latitude (i.e. less noise and banding) which is all the rage now days. I honestly hope Canon knocks it out of the park with the 5D4 because I'm sick of the DR debates  :P

Sorry mate, that's what I meant. My main point is that technology advances very quickly and a 3-year-old camera cannot be expected to compete with something similar. I stand corrected on the IQ for the 7D2, but the shadows CAN certainly be pushed better.

That'll teach me to post online with a bad head cold... Cheers.

Remember that the 5D3 is already 3 years old. It makes sense that a new camera within its range would have better performance. The 7D2 has better IQ than the 5D3, too.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Which Canon L Lens for 7D Mark II?
« on: September 30, 2014, 05:24:09 AM »
Based on some real-world experience, if the OP is looking for a main lens for weddings and had to choose between these two, I'd prefer the 70-200 for the longer reach and therefore shallower DOF by zooming to 200mm. The 24-70mm range, for me personally, is not ideal on a APS-C body because it's not wide enough and not really all that long. A 16-35mm f4 would be more practical in a wedding environment. The 24-70 is too middle-of-the-road in terms of perspective IMO. I'm sure there are others out there who disagree; this is just my $0.02.

The OP was referring to Canon's email support for the bundled software with EOS cameras.

Point taken, but I think a company's service record should cover every facet, not just a particular area. A company that's historically great a repairs isn't likely to total shun email support. I've had some dealings via email (but never regarding software) so I can't really comment on only the email side of things. It's also faster for me to just walk into a Canon service center (being a 5 min drive away!).

I crossed over from film to digital fairly early, going from the 1V to the (yikes) 10D. It was quite a change of era. The original post brought back lots of memories, both good and bad and hilarious.  ;D

If I hadn't just dumped a lump of money on a 328, I'd be all over this deal.

To answer the original question, I'd buy it if I had the money.  ;) It's good enough as it is for my needs. Tried a friend's a while back and have been keeping an eye out for a used one at a good price.

+1 to Loren.

I have to say that my own experience with Canon support has always been top notch. The people I worked with, from the desk clerk to the technicians, all have been very professional, honest, and frank with the condition of my gear. They never tried to make me pay extra for repairs or upgrades that I didn't need, and have dissuaded me from spending money needlessly. Maybe I'm just lucky?

Appreciate all the feedback, guys!  ;D The Canon for sure now.

Go for 300MkI. I tried both, and there is quite a bit extra IQ from the Canon. The difference is even more pronounced with 1.4x extender...

Thanks for the reply and suggestion. I will go for the Canon model.  :)

Lenses / Re: What do you use your wide angle lens for?
« on: September 22, 2014, 10:18:15 PM »
Me has two Tokina 11-16mm's for my APS-C bodies. They are great for interior shots. Also great for outdoors when you want to make something look huge (excellent for architectural ads, outdoor sports). As mentioned, the ultra wides are not useful for group pictures because those on the edges will be deformed.
