He use the cameras in APS-C. If he use the A7S in crop mode for stills the result is a 8 mpx camera. Like a Canon Eos 350.

With google translate:

"At 80 years after the birth of the brand, Canon raises and introduces a new payoff to accompany their market challenges, "come and see." The principle is very clear: the world of smartphones has created a huge user base, with a few taps on a touchscreen, snap and share photos trillion every year; hesitate to consider a risk this dynamic would be counterproductive, so Canon has embraced the opportunity and want to aim precisely this type of users to convert them into customers than one type of photography more advanced and qualitative".

I do not understand. If you do not understand the translation, I do not understand the original text in italian, what they want to do?
reminds me  Nikon with its "true photography"......

"The one I'm aware of is that as film was an expensive medium, that offered limited shots, the photographers took their time composing a shot, thinking through all aspects before pulling the trigger."

For the limited shots you can always use only a 256 MB cf card on a Eos 1 DX, with the possibility to shoot only 4 frames you need to think and rethink before pulling the trigger! I have a 4 MB cf card, only one photo! This must be the top of the thinking think. I think.....

Lenses / Re: Found Canon 28-80mm f2.8 and Canon 80-200mm f2.8, thoughts?

I have both lenses. They work very well in digital cameras and quality is like the new ones. The 28 80 is USM and focus work manual or auto all the time without the need of change the slider button. Quality is better than the 24 70 2.8L that have many problems with the alignment on the camera sensor: one side is out of focus.
The 80 200 i use mainly for video, always at 2.8, and manual focus is very easy and smooth. In autofocus mode it is not an USM lens, but is very fast. And is black! Is for this reason i never changed it for a new one.
If the lenses worked well on film work well on digital.

Plastic mounts on the lens and in the camera. The camera worked also with the extremely heavy EF 28-80 f2.8-4L with no problem, on tripod.

I use the Audio Technica ATR3350 on aZoom H1 or plugged directly into the camera.
In this video the mic is plugged into a Eos 550D with Magic Lantern:

A big factor for him was how much faster/cheaper Canon's service department is than Nikon's.


When i worked in Spain as news photographer  in the end of the '70, i was the only one with Canon cameras. All others used Nikon.For newspapers and magazines was mandatory to work with Nikon. They said that it was impossible to work with cameras other than Nikon, and  I must to change, but I do not change. In the '80 canon creates the CPS, I had the card number 7.This was the authentic revolution.Those who used nikon began to change to Canon by the technical service and equipment loan service. Today with the CPN I have the camera repaired or replaced by a new one the same day. Considering this and the quality of Canon cameras and lenses is impossible to think of switching to another brand. I have Canon cameras from 1969. They changed, I do not.

What you have to say against the 300d????

Looking at that example, exposure accuracy and shadow detail.

hey boy, was a joke, we must not take things so seriously!

Hang on, you asked a question and posted a sample, I pointed out some obvious issues and you get all defensive, and called me boy! How does that work?

It is up to you how seriously you take this stuff, but you shouldn't be surprised if somebody answers a question you ask, it is a forum......

I did not ask anything to you. Was a quote for another person.
But  do not bring your personal problems to the forum.
