EOS Bodies / Re: Preview of iso 204,800 on 1dx and d4
« on: February 12, 2012, 04:27:33 AM »
Best way to compare is a natural light portrait at 1/60 sec throughout the ISO range

Keep it level and fair. ISO 6400 at 1/8000 will look different to 1/60 second. The faster the shutter, the less resulting noise due to amplification of the image signal.

That's dirt on the sensor, send it in to Canon and get an arctic butterfly for future use. Or just get one and try it out.

When I used some cleaning fluid I used (can't remember what but it was highly regarded) and it just left a load of residue. To the point I thought I'd done something to screw up the sensor.

Bought some other stuff and it cleaned it fine.

So, whenever cleaning a sensor with fluid you should leave that to Canon - and just Canon as you'll never get it all off and you can push it into the edges giving you really rubbish vignette. ESPECIALLY with full frame sensors as you have limited room to work and can pull in gunk from the sides.

Full frame is to crop sensors what medium format is to full frame.

I'll never forget the day I saw my first full frame images from a 5D2, wow.

Lenses / Re: 36+ Mp EOS dSLR (rumored): How do existing EF lenses cope?

There's hassy users using 30 year old zeiss lenses on their hassy with a 50mp back...I never see issues with lens resolution there either.

I think it's more that each lens has character. An image wide open from a 50L with grab you by the shoulders and shake you whereas one from the 85L with take your brain out an stroke it.

True, I've printed countless A3 prints from 22mp.

But, there is that nice crop factor...however no good if the IQ is rubbish, which is why I'm stepping away from the D800 as a viable camera. I'd rather go medium format which in all fairness is really cheap.

I've been watching H3D 39's for the last few weeks, some go for the same price, with a lens for the price of a 1DX.
Ok, so it lacks a lot of features that are convenient but for studio work it's excellent.

The only way to compare a cameras output is to shoot at the same settings, the same image and to view the raw files.

All sorts of weird stuff happens to the light after it hits the sensor.

Images on the internet aren't a reliable source. Until I have a 1Dx in my hands I can't compare it.
But, I will when I have one, heck I'll be pulling that thing apart with my eyes.

EOS Bodies / Re: The Ultimate Question - Buy a 5D MKII today or wait?
« on: February 08, 2012, 03:47:34 AM »
I have been renting cameras for sometime now or using my t2i. I went to buy a
5D Mk II today and could not pull the trigger out of fear that a new one could be released anyday now? As we all know this is an ongoing problem for many canon users looking to upgrade at this time so I want hear people thoughts.   Buy a 5d MK II today or Wait?

Not this question again!

Judging by the MTF figures that's one hell of an improvement on an already great lens.

That's it, I'm switching to Konica

As I shoot portraits and weddings I'd much rather not have an AA filter on my sensor.

Much sharper images, so much so I'm testing out medium format for my portraiture.

Once you get to around 40mp the need for an AA filter is greatly reduced.

You know when this thing comes out you won't be able to get on anywhere. I placed an order for two and had to notify my Canon Pro rep to ensure I get them on release.

It's doubtful we'll see anything Raw or otherwise until a couple of weeks before release. The thing is way off ready imo.

The thing with Noise reduction is you lose detail, which you're trying to capture.

But I guess it depends on how much detail you need. I guess that's what keeps forums so active!

Any pro looking to replace an aging 1Ds mkIII should be very careful if they seriously think the 1Dx is a possible replacement.


I wouldn't worry too much about that. For me I cap out at ISO 3200 on the 1Ds3, so two stops improvement over the 1D4 is quite jump for me. ISO 12800 is more than enough. The only reason I didn't move to the 1D4 is because it wasn't full frame.

But then this is where the 5D3 comes in.
