Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Dissuade me to get a Rolleiflex
« on: April 16, 2014, 04:32:09 PM »
Went to my usual shop today for some CF cards.

Since my last visit a Rolleiflex popped up in their Vintage section. 2.8F, visually and optically mint. Asking price of 2300 USD (in local currency). Can probably be bargained down quite a bit (around 10% would be a reasonnable aime just for principles).

Just one comment....now THAT is a viewfinder!!! Why the hell does no company keep making this kind of camera??? The form factor is truly excellent!

I was so troubled that I forgot to ask for the accessories accompanying it and got the wrong serial number (taking lens not camera). I was in a rush to get my bank card away.

Anyone to dissuade me? Or will there be some GAS propaganda?

I just started shooting with one last summer love it!!   get it!!

The A7s is great, even without internal 4K.
The footage they have released looks awesome.
Like, this was recoreded internally: http://www.fstopacademy.com/blog/sony-alpha-7s-first-hands-on-shooting-review/

It's basically like a C100, with better DR and with a much better EVF, but without XLR or internal NDs, at less than half the price.

For video, judging by those first clips, it is clearly better than any of the following: 700D, 70D, 7D, 6D, 5D3, 1DX, 1DC, C100, and also C300 if you spend $400 on an external recorder. Make that $2K for a Shogun recorder, and it's heads and shoulders above anything Canon has, except for the C500.

Go here to see what video shooters think about it:
I'd say it's at least 80% favorable comments.


canon has to step up…for video..this nab has some great cameras

What is the potential risk with ML anyway? I believe I've read something about frying your sensor (!) when using Dual-ISO. Is that a big risk and if so, why?
No risk. ML runs on your memory card, the moment you replace the memory card, there is no ML ... use it without fear.

should I use the new version or the old (they say it's better for video)??

just tried the 123 ML…info and help sections seem to be missing…I just loaded the nightly build...

Sounds like someone got told to keep their mouth shut for one more day until Canon could get an announcement out there.

I was really expecting them to update the c300, or show up with a cheaper C-model DSLR.

i do think Canon will have some major announcements…2014..especially in the fall

<p><a href=\"http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/cameras/Canon_rumours.html\" target=\"_blank\">Northlight has received word</a> that Canon will be releasing a high resolution big brother to the EOS 5D Mark III in the fall. This is another reference to an EOS 3D type of camera (it’s been going on since this site started). The higher resolution camera would also shoot 4K video and have an abundance of video features. Pricing for the camera would come above the EOS 5D Mark III.</p>
<p>There’s always mentions of high resolution sensors showing up in Canon DSLRs for testing around the globe, and I don’t doubt that it’s going on. We were told back in the fall that Canon would be releasing 3 new DSLRs in 2014, and we’ve already seen one in the 1200D. The other will most definitely be the followup to the EOS 7D, the third camera is unknown. I’d like to think it won’t be a replacement to the EOS Rebel T5i.</p>

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 7D Replacement Mentioned Again [CR1]

With the long wait, I'm erring towards a 5DIII, as time is pressing. 

Unless the 7DII can rail off 10fps+ for a good 100+ images (jpeg) and has an IQ in the 5D/5DII arena, and a AF system surpassing the 5DIII, then I'll settle for 6fps ad infinitum (jpeg), great IQ and AF of the 5DIII.

By the time the 7DII makes it into the world, I doubt there'll be much price differnce, like the 5DII and the 7D when it was launched.


they have so many other cameras and they don't want to effect sales of the 1dc…that's why I think it's taking so long…(plus all these other cameras are coming out with new video features)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5d mark ii (should I keep it )
« on: March 09, 2014, 07:15:04 AM »
I have sold my 5DMkII and bought a second 5DMkIII. No regrets. Now both of my cameras are the same model so no thoughts in choosing.

In addition when you shoot with both cameras the controls are the same and this is a plus.

I would suggest to upgrade if you can afford it...

this is what I was going to do…(i'm working enough now and i can afford another 5dm3) but I think there is something unique about the 5dm2…(on some jobs I use an old film camera for the same reason…there is something still very unique to me about film)….getting back to the 5d mark 2…I think it works well as back up camera and has a unique image..??

thanks to everyone at the forum for your replies…!

my question is about the 5d mark ii    Since I have a 5d mark iii should I keep my 5d mark ii?   

Canon General / Re: Off Brand: Nikon Announces the D4S
« on: February 25, 2014, 03:00:20 PM »
After two years or whatever and everything updated, except for some video rubbish, it's still a step or two behind the 1dx, well done Canon. When they go all in, it's simply epic...


Im also getting the 1Dc (if there is an update this year)

"Hey guys, Canon Rumors has been saying a 7D Mark II is a couple months out from an announcement for like 3 years now. Think we should actually make one?"

"Ug. Ya, probably."

-Canon, last week.


canon cannot afford a loser…with all the new features coming out in other cameras…4k etc…they must be scrambling

EOS Bodies / Re: Will the next xD cameras do 4k?
« on: February 20, 2014, 05:10:46 PM »
Panasonic have announced a 4k GH4, which kind of demotes any camera only doing 1080p to the "also ran" category. Sure it is only a small sensor, but if 4k is more important than FF DOF artiness then the GH4 would seem to be a good candidate.


Is Panasonic hoping that this will push the sales of (their)  4k TVs?

Will Canon hold out on the DSLRs doing 4k to protect the Cinema EOS line or will they hope that they can maintain the premiums for those cameras based on features that aren't in DSLRs, such as SDI out? Oh, oops, Panasonic's got a base for the GH4 with SDI out ... someone is innovating!

p.s. why didn't this make it to Canon rumors front page? Surely this is just as significant as the Sony A7s or has someone decided not to put other manufacturers on there now?

<p>The latest announcements from Canon aren’t exactly receiving a lot of positive feedback in my inbox. The G1 X with an EVF for $1000 seems to be irking a lot of people. For that price, the camera needs to be the absolute best in the segment, and I think that’s going to be a hard thing to achieve.</p>
<p>To a lot of people, the resources put into the G1 X II would have probably been better served by moving the EOS M into the mainstream. The M2 isn’t coming to North America, and I highly doubt a lot of G1 X II cameras are going to sell at the introduction price of $799. When the camera is $499, things will probably be different.</p>
<p>We’re told between March and August that Canon will start to announce products that make sense and will be popular.</p>
<p>The EOS 7D Mark II will finally be unveiled and should be in your eager hands by the fall of 2014. It will set a new benchmark in the APS-C segment.</p>
<p>A lot of new lenses are coming, the biggest being a replacement of the EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS. We’re told that could be announced as early as March, but availability will not be immediate.</p>
<p>A third DSLR will be announced in 2014, though we’re not sure what that will be.</p>
<p>The Cinema EOS line will see a new camera or two for NAB in April, we’re told a lower cost 4K camera will be the star of the show.</p>
<p>There will also be another few PowerShot cameras announced sometime between now and May. Included in that will be the replacement to the SX50 IS.</p>
<p>Things haven’t been too exciting for Canon since the introduction of the very good EOS 6D, but even that started with a whimper. We’re told to expect a lot of exciting products throughout 2014 and that the Canon customer will be happy with the direction of the company.</p>
<p>More to come….</p>

<p>Nikon’s extremely vague development announcement of the <a href=\"http://nikonrumors.com/2014/01/06/nikon-announces-the-development-of-the-nikon-d4s-camera.aspx/\" target=\"_blank\">D4s body at CES 2014</a> has sparked the wrath of Canonites wondering when Canon is going to move beyond <a href=\"http://www.canonrumors.com/2014/01/canon-powershot-n100-official/\" target=\"_blank\">selfie technology based cameras</a>.</p>
<p>Lets be clear first, Nikon hasn’t actually released any solid specs or descriptions of the technology in the new body.</p>
<p>We’re told by a longtime source that Canon is indeed still in the game and has some “groundbreaking” camera bodies coming in 2014. Canon will take a different approach at the Sochi games and have test bodies out there without the development announcement. Canon plans to make a “big splash” at the World Cup in Brazil in the spring.</p>
<p>An array of lenses an 3 prosumer/professional DSLR’s are coming in 2014. Along with a host of Cinema EOS products in April.</p>
<p>Patience appears to be the key for the Canon photographer….</p>
<p><strong><span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">c</span>r</strong></p>

they already answered the d4s it's called the 1dx

i don't want to get married yet…and my second camera is a 1dc…yeah!!
