EOS Bodies / Re: Introducing the Canon 5D Mark III
« on: March 02, 2012, 01:07:19 AM »
great. well done, Craig. You got the 15 minutes of fame for a whole day! 8) man of the year.

I've just seen this. Price increases have been discussed back in 2010 already...
"Many people have commented that the price tag for the EOS 5D Mark III will be unusually high, but I strongly question that theory. Canon have, more often than not, priced their cameras at roughly the same price as the replacement model and often even less expensive."And his guess unfortunately was wrong...
"My guess is that where the 5D began the DSLR revolution for indie filmmakers, the 5D Mark III will take it further to levels that rock the very core of modern filmmaking in television and cinema."

As we are talking about price tags: what will be the on-line price in let's say 12 month from now?
As a comparison only: D800 price tag at retail shops: CHF 3398 vs CHF 2600 at online-shops.
Thx. You may indicate the situation in the U.S., because we are often quite close. The US$ often is taken for pricing in CHF.
Thank you!

@awinphoto: what is your guess? as I do not own any ff 5D at the time? compared to the current 5D2 and my photography preferencies at very low light? I'm shooting people at ISO 3200 with a 50 f1.4 wide open and well exposed to the right on my current 30D using good light sources like street lanterns for example and print that b/w. Thanks. Sorry if that is an absolutely hypothetical question!

The rumored body only price tag?  8)

I am looking between 1DX and 5D mark III.
So looking to see what are the differences between the two. The ones i can see are

10. ISO difference - If the native is 1 stop lower on 5D Mark III, that means most probably the usable ISO is ISO 1600 and can go to ISO 3200/6400 in tough situations. For me coming from 5D, this is atleast 2 stop increase already for Mark III. And for the dance concerts i do take it is sufficient. There is enough lighting on the stage for me to be happy with a 2 stop increase. So professionally i am good. Personally higher ISO will allow me to take photos of parties etc without the flash and capture more of the ambience. So 1DX has an advantage - tiny bit only.

Anything else that is different. Anything else i need to consider?

The 5D3 will not be 2 stops better than 5D in high ISO performance.
Perhaps 1 stop. Perhaps even 1.5 stop as would be extremely good and better than D3s. Certainly not 2 stop.

Well, if the 5D3 will be one stop better over 5D2 (or as you put "5D" do you mean the 5Dc?) then ISO 12800 will be equal to ISO 6400 which I guess would yield nice b/w photographs. Compared to my current 30D which I shoot as up to ISO 3200 (H) well exposed to the right.
I won't be in the first wave of buyers, but one year from tomorrow seems great. This will be a lot of camera for an amateur like me, let's say for the next five to six years for sure. I am completing my fifth year with the 30D  this April. The new 5D is the dream camera for me and I can't wait to test it with a fast lens 50/1.4 at ISO 51k in real low light with only a slightly iluminated face for the AF trying to lock on  8) rock'n'roll, gentlemen. enjoy the new day coming!

I can't promise a level of excitement like the C300 announcement, but at least there WILL be a 5D Mark III, so it will be better than Geraldo and the vault.

Official announcement here a bit later today.

Great news, looking forward to that.

5D-7D merge. Sounds perfect for me.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5D Mark II Price Drops March 4, 2012

So this would pretty much confirm the 3k+ price to me...
That's what I was going to say... No way $3500 is the price of a kit of new 5D3 plus new lens, as some people speculate/dream...
based on the OP's info: yepp. spot on. so, I will purchase the cam sometime next year then, hoping for a decent price drop. I am not an early adopter anyway. Hope the new 5D will get 1024k ISO at H2. Meanwhile  my 30D will gently click.

3 votes per member. Please correct me on speed lites and lenses if I am absolutely wrong on that one. There is a fifth line left. So if anyone comes up with an additional option feel free. Well, this is just for doing a bit of time... 8)

2nd of March. That's 20 days to go for my birthday. These are great times!!! 8)
BTW I was just privileged to open page #40. So, shall we set up a poll at how much this will add up till the 2nd of March?  :P

@CR: Hope you only had to go back for a reason related to the new tech coming.The day you know the announcement will be huge you might post some gear you gonna offer at second hand rates as a hint, let's say: old 24-70, old 5DMkII even though it's not a lens ;D

« on: February 24, 2012, 06:02:03 PM »
@wrack_of_lamb: thanks a lot for that! 12800 would be quite something. Looking forward to it then! Three days and counting...

@Mt Spokane being a non-anglo and non-tech I only get a faint idea concerning your insightful explanation. Could you please tell me what this means for the rumored high ISOs of the new 5D?

Up to which setting will the 30dB work for excellent quality? 6400? or does that mean 100-25600? sorry. I know it's gonna be a hard job for you but thanks in advance. or as I am currently shooting a 30D you might use the H 3200 as a reference in comparison to a new 5D. 1600 and good light is fine. 3200 is quite usable with fast glass 50 1.4 and wide open, exposing to the right. A type of digital robert frank "the americans" style ;-) which I like very much as I am veteran from the filmdays

Cheers, Pedro
