Maybe it's a dyslexic "Haaaaaa!!!!" ? 10 out of 1 CR posters share that affliction...

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Does FF make your photos pop?

I think it's plenty easy to get photos that pop with a crop sensor camera.

If you want to see 'pop' in your photos, get a full frame camera.  It really is that simple.  After spending thousands on a new camera, you will immediately start seeing that pop, whether it's really there or not. Mind over reality - works wonders.   ::)

Depending on how many thousands one spends on a full frame camera, one might start seeing disco lights instead of pop :)
Or stars when your spouse sees how much you spent...

The one thing I've been failing to understand with all the 5D replacement spec rumors is why a high MP camera (be it a single model or one of two) would have anything near pro-grade AF. Normally AF is a huge differentiating factor between lines and would pump the cost up quite a bit, but any camera with high MP is clearly being marketed to a studio/landscape/macro crowd in which AF performance is far less important.
The aerial photography crowd needs pro-grade AF along with high MP.  :)

Don't discount other people's needs because they don't match your own, some people have a use for higher MP. My "serious" photography is aerial/realestate/recon. The ability to keep zooming in on an image for details that were unknown at the time of shooting is huge. Printing? Who does that? Pop the image via wifi for display on a 55" LED.

I know this wasn't exactly what you were looking for, but I couldn't resist.  :P


As for surfers... I used the 1DmkIV last Nov at the ASP Rip Curl in SF.  The 10 FPS bursts were pretty cool :).  Take a look if you like (  [... puts link to site ... expects noobs to flame him ... don't care  :)]
Loved the photos, especially the dog chasing the ball across the beach.  :)

FWIW, Vistek in Calgary yesterday stated that the earliest they could deliver was mid to late April.

It's well-understood (or at least widely reported) that P&S sales account for vastly more sales and profits than DSLR's, even with much lower profit margin

I love how people state assumptions as facts.  I have this old cheat sheet of phrase translations for scientific writing; a couple of those phrases apply here:

Blah, blah, blah. There you go with your fancy facts and logic again. This is the INTERNET, man, get with it! You're supposed to win an argument by talking over the other fellow- completely ignoring his more salient points while demanding that he respond to each and every one of yours. Then you escalate. With each round- raise your voice, use CAPS and lots of exclamation points until you're shouting him down and questioning his intellect/parentage/genetic fitness. From there you transition into obscure and absurd threats. Tell him that you've traced his IP and that you intend to track him down and kick his scrawny ass!!

Geez, do I really have to spell EVERYTHING out to you?!!!
