Do we know it these take the same external battery packs as the 580EX II?

EOS Bodies / Re: Hugely Disappointed In 5D III Price
« on: March 23, 2012, 03:30:08 AM »
Well whatever, these things aren't selling as well as to be expected.

I've been watching ebay prices all week and here in the UK, retailers are £2999, UK based importers are around £2650-£2850 and I bought one from Hong Kong yesterday for £2400.

It makes me want to cancel my 1Dx pre order if prices are fluctuating that much.

Even the cheaper uk based ones from Digital Rev are £2699 and not one has sold. In the UK you still can't get the bodies on their own either so demand for them should be higher.

The IQ of the 1DX will blow you guys away.

I can certainly see why a person might need some exposure correction, it seems like a unnecessary omission to me.  I certainly plan to use the manual/ auto iso setting, and if I'd like to expose to the right, or correct a backlit situation, EC would be very useful.

Does the D1 X have it?

I would guess not - EC in M mode is a bit of a contradiction. However FEC works ....

Surely using Auto ISO in manual mode makes it an auto mode? Thus the need for exposure compensation (White walls, black suits)...etc.

I'm in Hong Kong and they've just arrived.... Or at least I could of bought one just now.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mark III ISO 100 RAW's - NEW

The images are soft but only because a Zoom Lens was used and the focus point wasn't on the eyes.

An 85L stopped down to F/11, which is what should of been used, would give completely different results.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D3 same max dynamic range as the 5D2???
« on: March 08, 2012, 11:17:34 PM »
I've never seen banding on my files unless I've screwed up the exposure and have had to push the image.

It doesn't surprise me that dynamic range hasn't improved either. I mean, there are some drawbacks to using a CMOS sensor. Until they change the sensor type there will always be limits.
They could use a CCD sensor but then they'd be limited to a max ISO of 1600, but you'd get 12 stops of range.

It'll be very difficult to tell ISO100 samples apart.

Some might argue the extra 35mm reach is more important than 1 stop of aperture. Even more valid a reason when the ISO has improved two stops.

Depending on where you got it LR3 has been massively reduced in price recently. LR4 is why.

EOS Bodies / March 22nd Release date in the UK
« on: March 05, 2012, 06:41:16 AM »
Just got off the phone with Calumet (UK).

I ordered the 5D3 on the day of announcement and in order to secure it I needed to put £100 down so I went and paid the full amount over the phone. In conversation the release date they have there is March the 22nd, which is a Thursday. Further there may be a possible deliberate association with it being 22mp on the 22nd.

If this is true then that's great, I've two weddings that weekend and can really put it through the mill.

1Dx is still labelled end of April though.

EOS Bodies / Re: More new 5D MK III sample pics from Bert...

They look quite soft at 100% on the flickr set but thats probably due to no sharpening etc...

When 12800 ISO are you.... look soft you will hmm?

Yeah here's one, why are Canon always measuring ISO improvements based on Jpegs, which are compressed and usually put through the in camera noise reduction.

It's hardly a bloody measure of ISO performance is it Canon?

Same goes to Nikon.

But he's also Canon's best buddy and Ambassador.

The 1V is awesome, the Eos3 is very good. (I have both). But, the 1V is professional, feels professional and behaves professionally.

I do like the Eos3's shape though, reminds me of the 1980's.
