If the 5D3 did not have video I would not have bought it... I don't want to lug a dedicated video camera for what I do - hobby. Having said that, even if I had to lug 2 cameras, I'd prefer the video camera to be a dslr so I could select the lenses for the shoot. Then again, I am not a pro but that is what I would want.I agree...no videO and maybe some added features for B&w imaging..but stills ONLY! I owned a 5DII and I never turned on the video feature!...
So I just saw another members signature joking about a kind soul who would donate a 5D3 that good Karma would be upon them etc.
Now what if you did a first come first serve list of 3500 people. Now in this list Everyone donates a dollar to the "raffle" because obviously the cost would be 3,500 if everyone gave each other a dollar and it would wash out but if it were designed like a weekly drawing, you would have a change at a new camera for 1 dollar with fairly low odds. I know I"d be willing to take that risk every week for a year.
Not sure how many others would be on board but if you can think of a good way to administer it.... unsure if pay pal is a safe enough place to hold those funds in escrow while we do this?
that's still only a 1 in 3500 shot that you win one each week. (Assuming there is always 3500 people in the raffle) So let's play...try picking the number I'm thinking of right now between 1 -3500...that's how hard it would be to win.
Those are Incredibly low odds of winning. (Don't get me started on the lottery )
This thread is silly.+100 on that statement!If you need to be "convinced"...you just don't get it.Then again we should not oversimplify matters. There are valid reasons to shoot JPEG sometimes, so it is not all bad. I would not qualify it generally as not being serious. I would like to rephrase this in the following way:
Raw = Serious
Jpeg = Not Serious
End of discussion............
RAW = Shooting slow or with the option of making the most of every shot you take
JPEG = Shooting lots of stuff you have to process fast and you don't want to pp on it.
End of discussion: Not likely...
New canon products are overrated. Not affordable, i'm very glad they fell out of their goal making money.
Canon should open eyes and see the world economic crisis.
where the hell are you going selling 5D 3 3.000 $
are you expecting to sell like 5D 2 back in her age while the worlds economic pulse isn't good?
Products i WOULD buy to upgrade my work:
70-200 2.8 IS II
24-70 2.8 II
but the prices of those products are EXTREMELY high with no reason. Its like canon saying, DON'T BUY IT.. and i'm curious, why the hell are you constructing such monsters if you don't want to sell them!
