... 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.
Off topic, but that's one heck of a portfolio you have there. Great work!
His concerns seem, to me, to be incapable of holding even hot air.
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's...ummm...review (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, sure...it'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...
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).
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.
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 $$$
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.
you are likely seeing the jpeg embedded in the raw file, LR4 cannot open raw yet.
