EOS Bodies / Re: Ken Rockwell Updated 5D MK3 Review

... Why can't I pinch-to-zoom on my $3500 camera, but I can on my $200 iPod? Instead, to zoom an image on my 5DIII I need to do what exactly?  Is this 1999?  It's just unbelievable to me and it's not wrong to question this kind of thing.

The reason might be the same as for the unavailability to put articulated screen. Your camera becomes less robust because of this.

Off topic, but that's one heck of a portfolio you have there. Great work!
Thank you for the comment. Though, I think we (I shoot together with my girlfriend) are just starting to understand how photos should really look like.

Here are few new reportage shots we've made few days ago:

We were limited by 50mm prime on 7D while framing those images, so they are not the best possible composition examples :)

His concerns seem, to me, to be incapable of holding even hot air.   :P

But for this particular brass tack, I don't have a 5DIII, but on my 7D and 5DII if the camera happens to be in automatic AF point selection mode (which it never is, because the 'mind-reading AF selection mode' hasn't been invented yet), pressing the multi-controller straight in changes to manual selection of the center AF point, and then it can be moved from there.  KR implies that can't be done with the 5DIII, but the manual seems to indicate he's mistaken (about a great many things, cue Emporer's voice from Star Wars).  Alternatively, you can register an AF point, and assign a button to that function.

A couple of my favorite points from KR' (and I use the term very loosely):

"If it was significantly different, Canon would have given it a new model number, instead of a "mark" appellation."  Right, because KR didn't say the 5DII was far better than the original 5D (oh, wait, he did).

"AF is much more complicated, not necessary better than the original 5D and 5D Mark II."  Ummmm, ok,'s no better than the 5D's AF.  By extension, neither is the AF of the 1D X.  Ok, Ken, fine.

...and my personal favorite:

"Foolish RATE Button Clutter"  A Nikon shooter, complaining about 'button clutter' on a Canon camera.  I actually LOL'd when I read that heading line...

Why don't you start writing reviews by your own, Neuro? Seriously. I find your comments very useful.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D III focus accuracy with fast primes wide open
« on: March 27, 2012, 05:04:13 AM »
I'm also a little confused by the wording of this thread's subject. Aren't all lenses "wide open" during autofocus? The aperture is only adjusted when the shutter is activated (or the depth-of-field preview is activated).

I believe "wide open" refers to resulted image, not the focusing process. Having a fast prime wide open you can easily notice focusing issues when your DOF is shallow enough.

I've raised the same question earlier and concluded that both are great. Here's my thread:,3297.0.html

Software & Accessories / Re: GEL Holder
« on: March 22, 2012, 08:56:31 AM »
It looks like there is a lot of space for white light to escape out of. I like painting with flash, which requires little/no leakage. Can you confirm if there is a gap....hard to be certain.

In the box the gels are wider than the gel holder, so you can use the additional part of the gel to cover the needed area.

EOS Bodies / Re: Any news on the 1D X?!
« on: March 22, 2012, 05:07:03 AM »
I think the reason why we haven't seen any RAW 1D X sample images is because they are going to be so amazing that the guys wo bought a 5D mkIII is going to regret it, and buy a 1D X as well. So Canon can make double $$$  ;D

You just don't see any RAW images, because Canon want to have an ability to change RAW processing algorithm any time. Camera is not released yet, so it's not wise to release different versions of RAW files.

Speaking of the autofocus they say:"Unlike the 1DX, however, it loses the coupling of color measurement to exposure."
I'd like to know, in what situations would this be a problem? Thanks.

5D Mark III simply doesn't have color-aware exposure metering. This feature is only available in 1D X.

EOS Bodies / Re: Some unanswered Mk III questions
« on: March 20, 2012, 02:13:36 AM »
The most interesting question for me remains camera's dynamic range. Does anyone have any idea on precise EV numbers of DR?

you are likely seeing  the jpeg embedded in the raw file, LR4 cannot open raw yet.
Not sure if this is true. How can we check this?

Here's the file:

5D III RAW file (in sRAW size) was easily imported by Lightroom 4 and I didn't noticed any incompatibilities.

EOS Bodies / Re: Any idea on how this was done...

I also think it was just positioned there, not attached. You can easily make a macro lens from your standard focal length lens just by positioning it towards your senser with the opposite side (i.e. reversing the lens).
