Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di VC USD Hands-On
« on: November 28, 2012, 05:26:19 PM »
"LEGENDARY" quality for Tamron? Let's say it's acceptable. How can that guy call it LEGENDARY? Did they try the 18-270?!

Yeah, that kind of jumped out at me too .... someone was just copying a press release for part of the article.  Hopefully the review portion was based on the author's judgment and not the publicity agent's.

I'll wait to see more formal testing then just a few handheld field shots, but it certainly looks tempting.  I just got the Tamron 24-80 f/2.8 -- barely used it yet, but so far it seems fantastic and a great price compared to Canon (even though it doesn't have the red ring).

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon EOS-1D X DXOMark Sensor Scores
« on: October 11, 2012, 12:54:17 PM »
i guess for some the reputation of the DXOmark has just become a bit better.   ::)

 ;D ;D
I think this is the first time admin put Canon's DXO mark on the front page


Yeah, I thought he said earlier this year that he was never going to post anything dxomark-related on the front page ever again because their sensor scores were meaningless.

Edit:

I know people love to debate the numbers from DXOMark.
Ahh, I guess he's simply realized how great they are for generating page views :)

I heard a rumor that CanonRumors is posting DXO rumors just to generate page views.  Since the source is this forum, I'll rate it CR3, since it has to be true.

I don't much care if the Leica glass is really that much superior to the Canon glass...I just think it's awesome that someone would spend the time (and money) figuring out how to make this frankenstein.  I'm happy with myself when I manage to fix a faucet.

Portrait / Re: Portraits of my GF, Would like feedback!!
« on: July 29, 2012, 04:34:39 PM »
Wow for all the response. I'll definitely appreciate the advice! As far as my overall look, I wasnt going for a traditional portrait. I wanted the pictures to look warm and a little vintage.

@vuiling - lol well I hope your eyes feel better! as far as the picture not having contrast, I would definitely disagree. That foreground is a light leak from the sun, not dirt. Why were you dissapointed that they were taken with a mark iii??

@axil - Thanks man, I really appreciate it :) Ill definitely work towards getting my subject to pop more!

@pdi - Haha yeah I can see what your saying about the arms.

@ker - Thanks, I'll definitely try using more curves in the future

Question - why do you think the first pose looks awkward?? I can see how her arms in the second shot look cut off, but the first I really enjoy. I understand that you guys are saying the post is done too warm, but would you really be able to tell had I not posted the before pics??

Once again thanks for all the feedback. keep it coming! In a constructive way.... :)


Clearly you have balls of steel to ask for C&C and post your work here.  Very nice model!  Don't listen to vuiling's comment on the 5D III and disappointing images.   Who cares about what camera you use, just get out and shoot something!  Disregard vuiling's whole post.  I've never had an image online actually "hurt my eyes".  That saying is in poor taste, and won't do anything to help you improve your photography techniques.  I agree that the skin tones do look underexposed.  My favorite composition - the full body portrait in the doorway.  Do some more like that, I think your onto something there.


+1

Although I don't love the post-processing, it's your style so really who is to tell you otherwise (though I certainly wouldn't get rid of your gf's freckles, if only to keep a happy home).

Hysterical -- the pancake lens on a 1dx.  I bet you don't find too many of those in the field.  I agree with iris chrome that it looks very cute though.

EOS Bodies / Re: 4 More DSLRs Coming in 2012? [CR2]
« on: June 12, 2012, 07:42:45 PM »
i hope one is an answer to the rumored nikon D600.

that would be the "entry level FF".  If Canon doesn't release a competitor to the D600 (if it meets the rumored specs), they are going to get crushed in the DSLR market for most enthusiasts and many pros, I think.

Looks fantastic.  Now I need to come up with some ideas and time for projects to justify renting it for some play time.

I'm still in the undecided category, but I'm swaying dangerously close to switching to Nikon.   Of course, at the rate I'm making up my mind, I'll be deciding between the 5d Mark IV and the d900.

Nice shots.  Thanks for posting.  I'm still reading all the reviews trying to decide if the upgrade is worth it.

Lenses / Re: Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 VC Available for Preorder
« on: April 05, 2012, 05:53:01 PM »
Has anyone seen any (pre)-reviews yet?  Seems hard to believe anyone is pre-ordering it based solely on specs without seeing any reviews or tests?

I agree.  JPEGs are way better, but it's tough to see big improvements in RAW.  Decisions, decisions....

This will be quite annoying if the 580exII AF assist beam doesn't work with the 5dm3.  I'm not ready to go out and pay $1800 for 3 new flashes on top of the new camera. But if the 430ex II works, I'd have to think the 580exII does.

Lenses / Re: Best third-party lenses
« on: March 19, 2012, 10:58:22 AM »
I absolutely love my Sigma 85mm f1.4
f2 is super sharp, noticably sharper than the 70-200 f2.8 IS II is at 85mm and f2.8

I chose it over the canon f1.2L due to considerably faster AF
I've been thinking about that lens -- seems like a great alternative to the very expensive 85 1.2.  I'm also eager to see reviews on the Tamron 24-70 2.8 vc.  It's been announced, but as far as I know, there's no release date on it yet.
