5D MK III Sample Images / Re: just some initial shots
« on: March 21, 2012, 10:55:20 PM »
I'm at work with a crappy laptop, no calibrated screen, but that iso8000 shot looks amazing noise-wise (like the blacks in the corner), better than my 7D @ iso1600.

If that's just a camera-jpg, what settings for high-iso and/or long-exposure Noise Reduction did you have?

Photo was taken in RAW and then i converted it to JPG using the built-in function of the camera as I'm at work too without DPP to convert it. The High ISO NR is set to "standard" which is the default setting of the camera. The image has had nothing done to it on a computer.

Yea i agree, having jumped from the 7D too, if you put that jpg through a little bit of post processing it will turn out absolutely amazing and the 7D has nothing on it at all!

it looks like a 5d mkii at the front which has been mated with a massive video camera from the 90s...

EOS Bodies / someone identify this crazy video attachment/camera?
« on: October 09, 2011, 12:16:57 AM »
so my mate was out at some festival here in sydney australia and he saw this camera man filming someone for an interview or something. it seemed he was using a full on pro video camera, but on closer look, it looks like a canon camera with some sort of crazy attachment!








Sorry about the pics, but they were from an iphone, but could someone shed some light on this crazy contraption??

thanks

edit: Updated pics to full res iphone4 images!

Lenses / Re: Which is the best "normal" prime for a Crop Camera?
« on: August 19, 2011, 12:05:41 AM »
How many great shots did you miss out on because you didn't 'pick up [the Sigma 30/1.4] much earlier'?  I'm a firm proponent of buying the lens(es) you need for the body you have.  Lots of people are 'planning to go FF soon' but unless 'soon' means I'm getting the new body next month, it's all relative.  What if the 5DIII doesn't appear until late 2012?  Or 2013?  What if a 7DII comes out first, and has a feature set and price you can't resist, and there goes your savings for the 5DIII? 

Not sure I agree on the resale value of the Sigma 30/1.4.  At least on my local CL, Sigma lenses seem to take quite a hit on the second-hand market.  High-end Canon lenses do seem to hold value pretty well (L series, and the top end EF-S lenses, too).

well some people, myself definitely included, can't really afford to buy things 'for the moment' and so they gotta somehow look at the future too to see what would suit their needs better. obviously if you can afford to buy lenses for the gear you have now, and repurchase them when your needs change, then good for you. i do photography as a hobby and for the most part of since doing it, ive been studying so funds haven't been the easiest to acquire.

even though a 7d2 may come out first and it has a great feature set, i still wouldnt get it as im looking for a full frame camera. no matter the features and extra etc, both cameras will still be fundamentally different what with the 7d with a crop and the 5d being a full framed camera. for me, it's a no brainer as i want to start a side business doing photography to complement my day job, but then again everyone is different so once again it depends on where people see themselves in the future with photography.

i guess resale will differ depending on where you are, but in australia they aren't too bad since the market for them is not as big as in the states and we dont have many options for local purchase or even just to test gear. most aussies have to buy from overseas (US or Hong Kong) as it is simply much cheaper than local pricing and so 2nd hand gear generally holds their price well here as there is a market for those who are unable to easily purchase equipment.

anyway just my 2c, i wish the OP will be able to find what they want and be able to enjoy it :)

although in a slightly different league of the 35/f2, i absolutely LOVE my 24/f1.4 on my 7D....

it's a totally wonderful lens and lives on my camera most of the time now as i find that it's just right for framing and it can also focus quite close which makes it very versatile for my uses. if you plan to be stuck on photography for awhile i recommend getting this lens because it makes using a crop body much more joyful :)
How would you guys comparevthis 24mm 1.4L with the 35mm, 1.4L still by Canon? I would guess a 35mm is closer to "normal" and would also be such on a FF, should one decide to eventually upgrade... Right?

i was deciding between the 24 and 35... but eventually i chose the 24.
why?
because i often go out for dinner with friends and i do some concert photography both scenario which often demands a large aperture. as such the wider 24 is more useful for me and i can still fit in a few ppl in my shot where as had i got the 35 i'd be just picking out individual people. i like composing wide.

another reason is that i have a 50 f1.4 that although is not L, serves me fine for low light.
the difference in perspective between 35 and 50 is quite little so with respects to the cash outlay, i deemed that the 24 would give me a more unique perspective.

food photography using the 24 is absolutely awesome i must say



i am going to upgrade to FF when the 5d3 comes out which will make my 24 quite wide, but im cool with that.
i love night street photography and for my style of shooting, the 24 is fantastic to be able to get the ambiance of the scenery as well as its activities.

failing that, theres always foot-zoom so it's all good :P

at the end of the day it depends on what you like to shoot and what you plan to use it for.

If the 24 is too much for you and you arent sure if you will move up to FF, i recommend the sigma 30 f1.4. great price, decent resale should you wish to sell later and performs quite well too. my mate has one and if i werent planning to go to FF later, i wouldve picked that up much earlier :)

Software & Accessories / Re: Which flash; Canon 580EX II or 430EX II
« on: March 09, 2011, 06:03:06 AM »
for me, i bought my 580exII because i just wanted something i would less likely be inclined to upgrade.
also its good to just get the best and be done with it :P
but then again ive already decided im sticking with this hobby so depends if you are!

Software & Accessories / Re: Kenko extension tube help
« on: March 09, 2011, 06:01:11 AM »
yer the 10-22 is just too wide for extension tubes to be used.

for my 50 f1.4 using the 36mm i can focus on something 7cm away from the front of the lens, but nowhere before and after.

my 24 f1.4 will focus ONLY with the 12mm and thats with the lens pressed up against the subject.

my 10-22 will not focus with any tubes

dont worry about your tubes being faulty. the issue you are seeing is a technical limitation. if you are still concerned for the EFS usability just find any other EFS lens and it will work. ive used my tubes with my mate's efs 17-55 f2.8 and my old 17-85 f4-5.6 so they definitely work :)

i have the kenko extension tubes too and i use it with my 7d

for the 10-22 any one of the extension tubes will put focus inside the lens. ie. u wont be able to focus anything at all even with using the shortest tube since the camera would never be able to get close enough to the subject to be able to get a focus on. if u have a kit lens 18-55 or something try using that @50mm+ and it should work.

with the 24-105, area u trying this with the lens set at 24? if so, u will also encounter the same issue.

i dont have the 24-105, but with my 24-70 the minimum focal length i need in order to be able to focus when using the 36mm is at 47mm and with the lens right up against my subject (in my case a screw on one of my lenses)

so try redoing your tests with the zoom set at the long end and then gradually work wider to find the minimum required distance. more likely, it is because the extension tubes are moving the minimum focusing distance so close that the theoretical point would be inside the lens.

you have to consider that the focusing distance is not measure from the end of the lens to the subject. it is from the sensor to the subject.

let us know how u go ;)
