Canon General / 5Dc Rear LCD screen problem
« on: August 16, 2011, 10:14:33 AM »
so my 5Dc has been treating me well for ~1 year (i am the 2nd owner) till recently, i have experience the rear LCD screen to appear like Posterized, glass filter like, or infrared like. This doesn't happen all the time, just occasionally, but i am afraid the problem will come more frequent, want to see if any 5Dc owner here has the same problem as i do.

picture from the CF card won't be effected, still came out nice on my computer, viewfinder has no problem as well.

If i press on the bottom of the LCD screen, i could give a temporary fix, but afraid to do that often.

my serial # is 3xxxxxx, so its not the early batch of 5D that known to have LCD problem.

called a local Canon certify repair shop, they are not able to give me any quote over the phone, (obviously) just wondering for those who had similar problem, whats the fix if its DIY, or whats the repair cost from Canon.

you don't need to worry about refurb Canon gear IMO, sometimes they went through tougher QC from Canon.

what kind of sensor is capable of doing 4K? APSC?

Lenses / Re: Sigma 24-70 2.8 hsm vs Canon L
« on: June 28, 2011, 09:59:33 AM »
thats not what i see from dpreview forum, they had a link from a chinese photo site (with translation) comparing the HSM, the 24-70L and the 24-105L

The HSM perform better and out resolve both L at any F number. However, that test did not show vignetting or light fall off. (or maybe i can't find it)

my only concern is it use 82mm filter, where my ND and CPL are all 77mm, so i need to buy another set.

Sigma are producing superb primes at the moment which are in many ways better than the canon offerings.
I do hope sigma release a 35mm f/1.4 and a 135mm f/2 as I will likely buy them if they are as good as the canon offerings. Canon's versions are both excellent so the only 'niche' sigma could go for is the lower price.

I am hoping for the same thing, i don't want to pay for the expensive L since Sigma prime is giving me fantastic result, but when sigma release these two lens, it will also serve the Nikon and Sony side too, which the Zeiss 135 is obviously more $$ (F1.8).  so how low sigma wants to list the 135, i don't know.

but yeah, they should have complete the 3 primes, they have the 85 now, just need 35 (or 24) and the 135

i would be interested in a MK2 as well, sinec 24-105L is too much $ for me.

i used to have this lens, i find it acceptable only from F8 and above, any wide open from this variable lens didn't satisfy me.  But the range is so good, better than the 24-105L

if the 24mm of the 24-105L works for you on the wide group shot, why not get the 24-70 2.8 instead?

if you are going with whats suggest above (5D2+24-105L), i would look at Nikon D700 +Nikkor 24-120 F4
you get much better ISO, AF and the +15mm reach. but this option involve selling all your gear which i don't mind if i am in a situation like yours

i seriously see a lot of potential for Sigma to make their own version of 135/F2 with HSM, with Canon, Nikon, Sony mount. price lower than the L, that will get a lot of buyer especially the Zeiss isn't cheap

these statistics is obviously before the D7000 was widely available.

we come back next year same time, i bet you the situation will be different, also with the 60D disaapointment to a lot of existing Canon user.  you see rebates available for 60D not too long after release, infact they are price close to the 600D on street price.

D7000 in the other hand was out of stock for a while.....

I am not a Nikon user, i have a 5D in fact, i just think these Stats were done not in proper timing for Nikon & Sony.

also, be aware of Sony up coming A77

« on: April 19, 2011, 09:44:24 AM »
how come these rumor post lately are all CR1.... which people should ignore right?

whats wrong with the original 24-105L anyways?

if you are planning to use your DSLR to record video when traveling and during family gatherings, neither of these two brand will make you happy, unless you are good on pulling focus yourself.

Canon don't offer continous Vido AF, Nikon do, but not so reliable.

maybe you should look at Sony A55 or wait for the A77, and perhaps Panasonic G2 or GH2, these offer continous video AF

if you want a superzoom and in a budget, look at sigma and tamron. both offer good lens for the value

EOS Bodies / Re: Nikon announce new camera D5100
« on: April 07, 2011, 11:09:41 AM »
if this one has the same noise performance as the D7000, BSI sensor from Sony? i would think the D5100 is better than the 600D.

they price it aggressive too even in MSRP.

Lots of rumors that it is a similar sensor, and ISO max is 25600 too, so I doubt there will be a big gap from the D7000. Great specs too as usual,  but this time they have these new Sony sensors which they are getting better at a terrific rate.

 I can easily see Sony as the main Canon competitor within a few years. I think Sony are exploiting Nikon and all the other brands by selling large number of sensors to them and therefore they can justify a bigger investment in sensor research, since there is a big market. I doubt they could reach such a performance in just few years if they were going to use these sensors only in their cameras. After they reach what they want, they might easily start to sell their older technologies to their competitors. If Nikon won't invest more in sensor technology they might end up in a disadvantage in the future. Of course, this is only true if Nikon is using Sony technology and not Nikon designed and Sony manufactured sensors.  Anyone knows ?

thats going to put big pressure on Canon, and Sony/Nikon/pentax pricing could be more aggressive if this is true.
