EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Announces the Cinema EOS C100 Mark II
« on: October 21, 2014, 08:51:38 PM »
Very mixed views on this. With only a 30fps increase, there is very little reason for anyone with the mark 1 to upgrade. Canon appears to lack innovation yet again.  On the other hand, 4k is not readily available to consumers yet. Sure you can record whatever you'd like in 4k at weddings, but you have to downscale everything so you can put it on a dvd or bluray.. there is no universal disc yet that can hold up to 300gb, there are no discwriters available anytime soon if such a disc ever hits the stores that replaces bluray. The c100 is obviously aimed for sports / weddings / indy filmmakers or whatever so it is logical to have it only record 1920x1080 for the above reasons.

But canon does seem to scare the small film makers away.. thats a hefty price for only full HD, meanwhile you can get a a7s + external 4k recorder for only 4000 dollars.
Welcome to the forum. I also see no reason to record 4K today. TV sets in people's homes are not capable of displaying 4K. The Bluray disks do not have the ability to record 4K, without making dishonest compression that will steal the potential quality of 4K.

Seems to me that there is a feeling like "I have a dick that is bigger than yours". :-X

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: How to differentiate crop vs. FF
« on: October 21, 2014, 06:43:25 PM »
Just go shoot low-light sports with a 1Dx and a 7D.  You'll quickly, very quickly, be able to differentiate crop vs. FF.
Actually, before that you clearly see the difference in time to pay the camera. ::)
EOS 7D Mark II preorder:  $1799
EOS 6D after mail rebate:  $1699
So, which is the FF camera?   ;)
Dear friend Neuro:
Were not you the one who always said that there are more important things in a camera, besides the sensor? ??? :P
With the exception of the sensor, 7D Mark ii seems a 1DX competitor rather than 6D. ::)
Of course.  But obviously price is no longer an absolute differentiator between crop and FF.
I understand. But if I compare the Canon 6D with other APS-C cameras, the most similar model (not counting the sensor) seems to me that is the T5i. :o 8)

Sports / Re: 1st Uk football shoot
« on: October 20, 2014, 12:33:44 PM »
This is a good start. Surely, an F4 lens will help with the poor lighting, and improve AF speed. In the future, if you are photographing many football games, 7D Mark ii can be a useful investment.

Whatever happens, get out of the way of ball.

I'm from Brazil, and I know the difficulty in photographing football. In principle, stand on the side of the field where your team makes goal, and the second time to change the side along with his team.

A camera behind the goal net can make very impactful photos with ultra wide lens, triggered by remote control when the ball approaches the goal (even if the goalie can defend).

Your 60D with Sigma 150-500 should be enough to photograph the players at a distance, if the game happens to sunlight. But there may be shadows in some parts of the lawn that require ISO above 1600 to freeze the motion.

Your 5D Mark ii with 70-200 will serve well when players are near you. Be very careful when the ball goes in your direction. It is better to lose a good picture than be knocked out by the ball.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Deals: Some Canon Body & Lens Deals This Weekend
« on: October 19, 2014, 12:31:42 PM »
On the subject of lens prices it is interesting to note that in the UK the 24-70 f4 IS retailed price is now cheaper than the 24-105L retailed price.
I believe the Canon 24-105L is already discontinued. This explains the large difference between the street price and the official price list.

7D Mark ii should make a big difference in AF, metering, and frame rate on your T2i. Just because it is worth the price of $ 1800. Traveling with two bodies is a great way to avoid changing lenses in dusty environments. His 5D Mark iii will do very well in low light, where you are not limited by the reach.

Seems to me a lens for GoPro cameras type.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7Dii AF performance
« on: October 16, 2014, 08:27:37 PM »
Difficult question to answer. Surely, Canon designs and tests its new cameras using Canon lenses. You can not guess if your Sigma 120-300 will "improve" accuracy and speed of AF on a 7D Mark ii body.

I believe that you should wait until 7D Mark ii arrives at a store near you, and test it with your Sigma lens.

Reviews / Re: Canon EOS 7D MK II Field Review of THE APS-C DSLR KING .

7DMKII kicks ass
+1 agree that based on these high-Iso comparison 7DII looks very promissing.
I would say it's not fair to compare the 7D2 to those other two. I think Canon is marketing the 7D2 in the 6D level, except for the APS-C factor. It's therefore natural that it would beat these two. I'd like to see a direct comparison between the 7D2 and the D750, for example, to see how each handles low light/shadow recovery, even if sensor sizes and crop factors are different.
Compare Canon 7D Mark II with Nikon D750 makes sense in the same way that a comparison of these cars...
I think a sedan with a large interior space is more suitable for family outings, instead of a sporty two-door. Maybe someone prefers to take his family squeezed into a Camaro ??? ::) :P

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: So what makes a camera a "pro" camera?
« on: October 15, 2014, 03:11:38 PM »
My point is that "pro" (or "pro-level" or "pro-targeted") is a characteristic of the camera and not the person using it. The user doesn't determine whether a camera is a "pro camera" any more than the camera determines whether the user is a pro. I think that we would all agree that a 1DX is a "pro camera",
I get your point; however, the reason I disagree with your conclusion is that there's no objective criteria to separate pro from non-pro.  At the extremes, e.g. 1DX vs Rebel, we will probably agree.  But what about in the middle?
In the end, it devolves into the famous Potter Stewart test.
Yes. Appearance of a camera can radically change the perception people have of it with accessories...

Suppose I need a photographer shoot a wedding with me. If I had to choose between the options below, I decide by the number 2:

OPTION 1 - Only one 5D classic + 28-135mm

OPTION 2 - One T5i with grip + 17-55mm + 430EXii + other T5i + Sigma 50mm Art
If that's how you prefer to make your decision, ok...after all, it's your decision.  Personally, I'd choose based on the quality of their portfolios, not the gear they used to develop them.
Obviously, the technical ability and artistic vision of the photographer is more important than the camera. As the subject of this topic is the camera, I did a comparison between a camera supposedly amateur and other professional.

Actually I saw a photographer shooting a paid job, with the combination: 5D classic + 28-135mm + Nikon SB600 flash. :o :o :o :o
