.... at Canon’s new headquarters in New York.

Canon's new headquarters is not in New York City. It is in Melville Long Island.

You're both wrong.

Company Name:   Canon Inc.
Founded:   August 10, 1937
Headquarters:   30-2, Shimomaruko 3-chome, Ohta-ku, Tokyo 146-8501, Japan

And it's not 'new'. Blooming Americans.

Header at the top of this discussion from the "Canadian" Canon Rumors Guy, that we are all responding to:
"From Canon USA
A press event has been scheduled for Wednesday, August 21, 2013 at Canon’s new headquarters in New York."

I believe we are all talking about the blooming USA Headquarters, as stated at the top of the discussion???

Thanks, Mr. Bob. Glad to see I'm not the only one who knows the difference between the city and Lon Gisland.

Canon's new headquarters is not in New York City. It is in Melville Long Island.


I said to myself: NOW what has the old man (me), missed in the news...who is Lon Gisland?"  So I Googled "him"!?!?
LOL! Ya got me on that one!
Yes, New York is New York....
....and Long Island...is of course Lon Gisland!!!!

Lenses / Re: Sigma 24-70 f/2 OS HSM Coming? [CR1]

This is intriguing news! I would love to see more fast Art-Line Primes (like a killer 50mm)...but hey, this could be entertaining. I own the Canon 24-70mm II ...and I doubt that a Sigma f/2 IS lens could come close to the sharpness of the Canon II...but they are on a roll lately, so who knows. The new Sigma 35mm is fantastic..I own one and love it! This rumored new Sigma would have to be somewhat bigger than the Canon, too.... I would imagine.

This sounds like a much more sensible rumor regarding the recent Sigma Liberation-Teaser Ads that are running. I am also reading speculative rumors that Sigma is supposedly releasing a MFT mirrorless camera...That one is total bunk....
..this rumor here makes much more sense...and based on Sigma's teaser ads, the new zoom would have to be reasonably priced..or there is no "liberation" from the Canon system.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Lomography Petzval Portrait Lens
« on: July 26, 2013, 07:01:31 AM »
Hmmmmmm...this lens has some very unique Bokeh...quite different from my lensbaby lenses...actually a lot different.
I include two samples:
Building shot with Optic 80mm
Clock shot with Sweet 35mm

Can't say I am going to run out and buy a Petzval (I need to use the things that I already have!!! LOL!)...but the Petzval is definitely interesting. ..Based on the amount of support they have received on Kickstarter, a lot of people apparently like what they are seeing! Definitely warm and fuzzy.

I don't look at these types of lenses as novelty items...to me..they are tools...they may work for some shooters' style...but not for others...but more choices is always better, no?  Looks like a fun piece of glass.

Yeeeee...Haaaaaaw.....bring on some more Full-Frame Primes Sigma!!!

With dual Digic 6+, it might even hit 3 fps...   ;)

Or...it could just catch on fire....

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: EOS-M sharper than 6D?

Time to stop testing and start calling Canon Service...
+1....everything is really soft!

Hmmmm.... what on earth would cause a camera to be soft like this????????...there is no point in the frame where there is true sharpness.

I'm happy with 5D3. I could use it until it dies.

There is a LOT to be said for that... I love mine, too!

1. Two stops improved noise performance.
2. Improved Dynamic Range
3. Two Compact Flash card slots that operate at equal rates
4. Expanded AF points
5. Higher Silent Frame Rate

I do not have the need for a larger file.

Sounds interesting.  But I have a dumb question (never used ML before).  Where is the link to the actual firmware file for the DR "upgrade"?

ML's download site has the latest 7D firmware from Dec. 2012.  I read the post and checked the .pdf... didn't see anything or links to the file in there.

You have to build it yourself.
Here is the code: https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/commits/all

If that is too much for you. Here is a link of it already built. Built by the magic lanterns forum member 'Lourenco'
The second link is for the 5D3 files

OK..I am just a photographer ...not a code writer.  Is this DR  revelation something that the average person can safely load onto their $3500 camera body without damaging it...or is this something that is proposed for a future release of Magic Lantern that we all can use?

The short answer is that if you don't know what you're doing you should wait until the DR feature is built into a stable ML release. Also note that the current "alpha" release for the 5D Mark III requires the older 1.1.3 firmware. For myself, I WILL NOT be loading ML into my Mark III until they release an alpha version that works with the current firmware, but I'm really looking forward to that day! Why? Because I've been running the stable version on my T2i for quite a while now and it has some GREAT features--for video and stills.

FTR, I'll quote myself here from my earlier answer to your question...

The Magic Lantern forum thread discussing this (read it carefully):


GD thanks for the explanation. That clears up a lot of confusion for this non-programmer still photographer.
I will not be attempting this unless it is included in an updated ML release that is compatible with current 5DMarkIII firmware.
