EOS Bodies / Re: 50mp Cameras Coming in March [CR1]
« on: Today at 05:39:40 AM »
I gave up waiting and bought a 645z

Don't hate me.

Hope you will relate you experience with the 645z in future posts.
You know we are all secretly jealous....right?

I'm doing a write up on it now. It's really good and the best image quality I've seen on any camera, anywhere.

Plus the skin tones are great. Sony finally sorted their stuff out in that regard.

24mp sounds very Sony like.

TBH I'd happily have Sony sensors in my Canons. They've finally sussed the skin tones.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Wait for 5D4 or go for 5D3/6D right now ?

Personally I'd wait. But for right now, if you needed a new body I'd bypass Canon and go for a D750.

But that's just me, the sensor would be a strong selling point.

Probably adding value by discovering a way to increase the raw buffer size ala the 7D.

Long term I use the Mileniatta 25gb Blu Rays (1000 year lifespan) - But still have HD's for fast access.

Sometimes I think applying figures and statistics to an otherwise organic subject can be a bit confounding.

There's much talk about resolution and the ability of a lens to resolve it but from practical experience I can wholeheartedly say it's a load of crap.

I've had a Pentax 645z on loan for a few weeks. I've got 30 year old glass on it and it resolves just as well, if not better than any of my Canon glass with little or no distortion or CA when wide open. I've always maintained that beyond a certain point of development and design the importance of super duper statistically perfect glass falls away.

It's just my opinion, but it's always been about the sensor for me. Sure, the mk1 version on the 24-70 was a bit of a dog compared to the mkii. But we're now at a point where the lenses are pretty much bang on.

I struggle to get over the image quality from small sensors with a high mp count on. Really I do. I bet you that if Canon does dump a 52mp 35mm Canon designed sensor on us (The Sony MF sensor is 51.9mp btw) then I say dollars to donuts the majority will rip it to shreds on here because it'll be noisy and have poor dynamic range.

That's unless they've really come up with something special. It's now mostly about the sensor size and the quality of the pixels on it. There's nothing wrong with having a 35mm sensor but the pixels have to be good ones not just an all you can eat buffet with as many as possible on.

I don't personally feel 50mp belongs on a 35mm sensor.
Then again I'm sure someone said the same thing about 21mp in the years gone by.

Anyone tried the Pentax 645z yet? I've one here on loan and it's lovely.

A medium format 50mp Sony sensor would need a new line of EF lenses.

Juss sayin'

They intend to make a splash when they announce it with a new body.

We have clean ISO3200 with great dynamic range across the board with all DSLR's released in the last 3 years.

If you can't get a great capture with any of the existing technology you shouldn't be shooting.

I'll use the best complete system that helps me get the shot I need. I have no loyalty but Canon suits me for their pragmatic approach.

I'd like a fully functioning 1DX in a smaller body. That's what I'd buy.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon to Continue Using Canon Sensors in DSLRs
« on: November 03, 2014, 06:51:47 AM »
I can't see it either because of Dual Pixel AF.

However, I would like to see something as I'm sniffing around the D750. Something which I never thought would happen. Not to replace my Canon kit, more to accompany it for bad lighting situations.

Because a bit like Canon not being loyal to any manufacturer, neither am I.

I use Hasselblad, Canon and Sigma DP cameras.
