EOS Bodies / Re: POLL: The 2nd ff camera in 2014 will be...
« on: November 29, 2013, 08:14:30 PM »
The probability of a 5D MK III replacement is really slim.

I mean, based upon what we've seen in the previous years, it is just unlikely or impossible.
It took more time to replace the 60D with the 70D, the CR1 rating is appropriate here.

A high MP camera probably. But something else?... Nhaaaaa

A recurrent phrase I hear from people holding my camera when a prime lens is mounted is the habitual:
"Where is the zoom?"

I won't talk about people saying that anybody would take great pictures with my DSLR as it annoys me more than anything else.

Software & Accessories / Re: New Macpro teased at Mac Conference
« on: June 11, 2013, 12:06:03 PM »
I don't need a designed machine in my studio, I need a tool, that works and runs Logic Pro and Pro Tools and the Adobe CC.

An upgradeable computer is the strict basis, this MacPro is far away from beeing a professional tool.
Based upon the cycle of life of a SSD, we can pretty much guess that the hard drives will be dead within 3-4 years (shorter life cycle).
This is not a professional computer, but a design "thing" that does not comply with what's needed in a proper studio with recording, video rendering and so on (yes it will do on short term, but in 2017, I would'nt like to put €€, €€€ in another machine just because that one is outdated).
What about my old soundcard? Graphic cards?
I don't want "thunderbolt ports", they are specific to Apple and 50€ for adaptators are just a big insult to people working on multiple platform.

PS: I am an Apple fan, but stop all the hype around any product they make.

Lenses / Re: EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x Announcement Tonight

All right Canon, this does sound like Chinese Democracy's GnRs or Daft Punk's RAM.
Don't disappoint us (I'm somewhat doubtful).

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Is the future of DSLRs FF only?

As far as I'm concerned, the APS-H is not dead yet. The EOS 1D-C uses a 18 Mp APS-H sensor.

The camera, has almost the same specifications as the EOS 1D-X. For sure its price does not help it to shine like its fellow, but it is still an APS-H sensor..

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: How much does a dual-card slot matter?
« on: July 03, 2012, 04:33:35 PM »
Or let's put it more simply:

If you do not have enough space, a card failure... What would be the widest card to be found in stores?

SD cards.

It is a common consumer good, which you can find in virtually any large shop or mall. A CF card is quite specific.
You may go to a music shop and find a SD card, but you're not sure to find a CF, ditto for a supermarket or any non-camera-specific area.
Many people use SD card in point & shoot or other cameras.

If you travel a lot and need to be operationnal easily therefore a dual SD/ CF card is the right option.
