EOS Bodies / Re: DSLR & Lens Coming on January 15, 2013? [CR1]
« on: January 12, 2013, 08:17:48 PM »
They will both be incremental updates because that is what Canon does.

What Canon does is make money.  The brand on top of the heap has no need to take risks. Incremental updates sell well.  Not saying I'm happy about it, but it's a sound business practice (unless it fails, then heads roll, and things change...).

Anyone thinking that Canon will do anything revolutionary with the 7DII has got their vendors mixed up. Canon is not Sony.

Perhaps.  Lots of mix ups here lately, it seems.  Canon being mistaken for Sony.  Lenses being mistaken for cameras.  ;)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: whats up with 5d2 used pricing?

The key word there is attempting to sell.  Listing price isn't necessarily selling price.

550$ 5d mark 1 with 25630 expo, 3 batteries and etc, 3 month warranty without papers, is it legit? (new body)

A 'new' 5D with warranty?  I'm skeptical.

You need an optical slave trigger.

Many are not compatible with Canon EX Speedlites.  The ones with the green bases at the above link are the ones you want.

Why do you say Cokin does not? Any particular reason. Is having resin instead of glass a bad thing?

No, resin isn't a bad thing.  They're lighter and less likely to break, but more likely to get scratched. 

Cokin filters are known for their color cast issues.

If anyone cares, these are not the authentic Canon MkII center-pinch caps.

Fake (from the links above):


Real (from B&H):

EOS Bodies / Re: taurians upgrading to 5d mark 3
« on: January 11, 2013, 12:43:37 PM »
The only logical thing to do was to balance the performance of the 7D with the IQ of a FF sensor while keeping the same number of MPs...thus, I upgraded to the 1D X.  Can you tell I'm a Libra?   ;)

there is one for 770 in my country, but it's with 51800 expo, isnt that much?

A little more than half of the 5D's rated shutter life of 100,000 actuations.

Probably a 5D classic is your best bet.  Check your local Craigslist - there are 4-5 on mine right now in the $600-700 range.

By the way, how'd I do on the 'quiz'?   ;)

If it's a camera, why does Tom Guilmette, who shoots Red Sox games at Fenway Park (which I can see from my office, incidentally) discuss shooting games with a, "Sony HDC-910 camera head with a 75x (9.5mm to 700mm zoom 1:1.7) Canon HD lens with an optical image stabilizer," (the lens being the DIGISUPER 75 xs, btw)?

https://vimeo.com/1159080

(watch the video through to the end - there's a great shot of a plane flying in front of the moon taken at 1400mm (700mm w/ 2x extender)

Heck, even Sony's brochure for the HDC-xxx camera system shows it with Canon Digisuper lenses (although they cloned out the Canon logo :-X ).

Still think it's a camera?

Are you saying that the Canon DIGISUPER 75 isn't a camera?

Yes, I'm saying it's a lens, not a camera.  Are you saying it is a camera?   :o

Is this a trick question?  I don't think it's from a camera at all... 

It looks like the control panel on the side of a Canon DIGISUPER field lens (box-type lenses for broadcast TV).  Not sure which one, though (an older version of the DIGISUPER 75, I'd guess, from the zoom range).

Lee is quite good, Schneider Optics (B+W's parent company) makes excellent glass 4x6" filters (almost all others are resin).  HiTech has a good reputation for a budget option, Cokin does not.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: eos5m3 registering an AFpoint
« on: January 11, 2013, 08:46:49 AM »
That's normal behavior - the selected point can be registered, not the AF mode.  You can submit a feature request to Canon...
