EOS Bodies / Re: someone identify this crazy video attachment/camera?
« on: October 10, 2011, 02:13:27 PM »
Still not sure it's a new camera.  Probably a 5DII in a home-build video rig.  The use of a non-standard hood is consistent with the 'home built' aspect.  I've seen all kinds of those...here's one interesting example.   :P



Haha!  good one.

You mean, you posted something that you had no idea sounded suspisciously like a flame, and now are sardonically dismayed that that's the exact sort of response it generated?  Jinkies, we're all sooooo sorry to have hurt your sensitive feelings. 

Sorry, but honestly, what sort of response were you expecting when you post on a site called Canon Rumors that you're 'bored with all the different rumors that never come to anything.'  Unless someone is forcing you to read these rumors, the whole subject is pretty inane and disingenuous.  If you're bored, simply stop reading.  This place is for entertainment only - if you want Canon Facts, watch for press releases direct from Canon.   

Would we all like to see new products from Canon?  Yes.  Can we do anything besides speculate and whine (something I'm as guilty of as the next person...I want a 1DsIV, darn it!)?  Not really, no.  So, either join in the speculation and whining, or delete your bookmark to CR and move on.

I digress: but John,  I just saw your equipment profile on TDP... Dang! What do you need 3 rocket blowers for... I don't even have 1 (but I do have dust on my sensors :P )

Where did the OP's pictures go? Were they bullied off?

You have to appreciate that you can the man out of the pack, but you can't get the pack out of the man.

Your mistake was threatening to go to Nikon, once you said that, it channels all the emotions on this thread into what you have witnessed. Without that last bit, you might have gotten balanced responses but still some that would have been the way they are... Second mistake was bashing the 7D which is loved by a lot of people and still respected by a greater number still. Each and everyone of us probably has a friend that owns one... you just said that their friends have medicore tastes...

Just saying... havent we all posted something like this at least once in our lives and learnt a whole lot from it?

increased exposure on shadows and the dial is visible...

I am leaning towards the 5D (look at the sharpie mark, its too wide to cover a "1")


or the sharpie could also be a hidden "3"  !!!

Enlarged 2 of the pics... in PS.

Looks like a 5d type body form. The head holder/bracket makes it seem like a 1d body but it is not that deep like a 1d. The model number is sharpied out so this is definitely in disguise!

EOS Bodies / Re: Nikon D800 at 36mp, Will Canon Respond?
« on: October 04, 2011, 03:22:39 PM »
It might be a stretch but perhaps the new sensor on the D800 is a 3 layer sensor like the Sigma foveon? That keep the file sizes the same as 12MP file sizes.

I like that Idea!

Canon EF Zoom Lenses / Re: Canon EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS
« on: October 03, 2011, 04:36:30 PM »
Went to Brown County State Park this weekend and they were talking about rehabbing a few native birds (and a couple migratory): I was lucky to have my 70-300 on me. Took these during the talk .

No PP sharpening done, but while scaling down the image sizes to post,I used  "bicubic sharper for reduction"

Canon General / Re: Photography - Equipment or Skill ?
« on: October 03, 2011, 02:18:16 PM »
99% skill 1% camera

If you are told to just go out and bring back some amazing shots, then maybe.

If you are told to come back with specific sorts of sorts it may be that equipment is suddenly incredibly critical.

+1

There is no one criteria that makes a great shot. Many of them are skill based, a few equipment based. If you use the adage, a camera wont go and shoot itself then it is 100% skill 0% equipment.

But I think the OP had some reasonable assumptions... being a rookie myself, I'd say, 80% skill, 20% equipment.

Canon EF Zoom Lenses / Re: Canon EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM

I HAVE THIS LENS AND IS THE WORST CANON LENS I HAVE EVER HAD, IN TERMS OF QUALITY... IN THE LAST 30 YEARS.
NO OTHER HAD BE BROKEN IN MY HANDS ONLY BECAUSE OF "ZOOM IN/OUT" MOVEMENTS. :o

IN 2 YEARS OF PROFESIONAL WORK IT WILL BE BROKEN, DUE TO IT'S INTERNAL  PLASTIC, DELICATE MECANICAL  AND ELECTRONIC COMPONENTS, IMAGE STABILIZER AND DIAFRAGM WILL START CRAZY FUCTIONING AND CANON DO NOT ADMIT THEY HAVE CREATED A FAILURE DESIGN WITHIN THIS LENS... THEN YOU MIGHT HAVE TO PAY THE BILL OVER 350$.

HEY GUYS, DO NOT BUY THIS LENS!!!!!!

Your argument would be a lot more persuasive without profanity/capital letters and properly thought out sentences.

There is no faulty design here; posting a redacted receipt of the repair note may convince some that you at least got a bad copy, but unless you're playing basketball with the lens itself (as the ball), your statements appear to be completely made up.


+1:

Maybe English is not his first language... that would explain a lot in his rant. But yes, no need to use caps.

I noticed the same softness with the 24-105 that I just bought and ultimately I decided to return it and only use prime lens for now until a new zoom update comes out maybe like the 24-70 2.8 II (hopefully with IS)!

I shoot Weddings with my 24-105 on my 5D mark 2 and find the lens focusing very inconsistent. Images taken in a sequene with the same subject, composition and focusing point, some are sharp and some arn't. Generally by saying sharp I mean usable, I wouldn't say this is a sharp lens. For a while I just thought I hadn't got a great copy, bu :(t when a fiend of mine also got a 5D and 24-105 he has had the exact same problems, both of our lens's seam to experiance more softness at the long end. Was thinking of trading up for a 24-70 with the hope it would be better? Is there anymore of you guys with a similar experiance with this lens? as it has been for me unfortunately a bit disapointing.

I use a 24-105 on a 5d1 body, no issues here.  24-105's are usually very sharp lenses: Took this one 2 days ago,

Taken at F4 fully open, so it could be sharper if stopped lower. No sharpening (PP) was done to this pic, but had to crop it up aggressively or it would not load to the site.  :-[

If the 5Dmk3 has more than 24MP, it would discourage me from upgrading.

Yes it would.... but c'mon, you'd still get one  ;)

Want to put your money where your mouth is ?

Resistance is futlie, we will all be assimilated !

EOS Bodies / Re: Price point of a 5Dmk2 replacement
« on: September 30, 2011, 12:06:41 PM »
Once APS-C sensors are good enough with low noise & high DR, I think we will see a shift from EF to EF-S lenses....

In the longer term, I believe the opposite will happen :) It seems reasonable that, in the future, the cost for producing sensors will go down more quickly than the cost for producing optics. When the optics becomes the dominant cost of a consumer camera (as indeed used to be the case not so long ago, and already is for the most expensive lenses), it will be cheaper to produce a big-sensor camera with simpler optics for the same IQ as a more compact camera with a smaller sensor. I already envision toy cameras with Nikon V1-like colour diversity and both house and lens entirely plastic, containing a full-frame sensor and producing better IQ than today's best compacts :)

Made the assertion with the cost of EF lenses, not the sensor  :)
