EOS Bodies / Re: About the 1Dx?
« on: March 02, 2012, 05:45:38 PM »
I thought the 1DX had in camera HDR?

Canon did us a favour. I had 2 x 1Dx's on onrder, now I have a 1Dx, 5D3 and a 24-70 II instead.

EOS Bodies / Re: Hugely Disappointed In 5D III Price
« on: March 02, 2012, 01:51:03 AM »

Who cares about megapixels.  Seriously.  22 megapixels can make HUGE prints.  I'm glad the price has increased so that people who care about megapixels (non pros) won't buy this camera.

You Sir, have no idea what you are spewing. 

 MPs a extremely important to the studio and landscape crowd.  Landscape folks what better detail in big prints.  Studio folks want to satisfy clients needs for higher MPs so clients can crop as much as they want and still have enough MPs for a variety of uses.

In your mind MF folks using huge MP digital backs arent pros?

MF Folks, myself being one use a sensor 3 times the size of a 35mm DSLR. For certain portrait work I use a Leaf Aptus 22mp back from 2004, the pixel pitch is 9 microns and at ISO 50 it noticeably beats the 5D2, 1Ds3 and 1D4 for IQ.

I would never really consider a 40mp 35mm sensor. Not until a second generation version at least. Image quality is king and even with my 1Ds3 I've taken landscapes that print a meter wide.

High MP = Small pixels = not good for IQ

I had 2 1Dx's on order but the 5D3 has this over / the same as, the 1Dx:

Lighter, AF system practically the same, Higher MP

If it wasn't that I trusted pro bodies and their extra features more I'd probably cancel both orders and go purely 5D but I'll get one of each.

For weddings just how much 'noticeable' difference in IQ will the client see between both bodies?

4 stops in camera IS

It's a smaller 1Ds3 with video.

I did have 2 x 1Dx's pre ordered, now it's just 1.

How good does the IQ of the 1Dx need to be to make it worth taking over a cheaper, lighter, higher MP body?

Dual card slots and it can focus*.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Why all the hate for still camers?
« on: March 01, 2012, 04:40:43 AM »
I hardly use video but you can imagine the scenario if they did stills only and stills with video:

Say the 5D3 is released and it's $4000

Then we fly to an alternative universe where there are two models.

Without video = $4000
With = $5000

It's not being hated on at all, tbh I'd rather have an amazing stills camera than a bit of both but I don't think these days it takes that much extra tech to do video as well. So it gets included, then becomes a measure of a cameras quality because of it.

Usually my eyesocket covers the eyepiece when I take a shot. I always thought it was there for long exposures?

EOS Bodies / Re: DR and RAW bit depth on Canon's forthcoming...
« on: February 26, 2012, 02:04:20 PM »
I'm very surprised that Canon hasn't gone to 16 bits yet. I've been testing out an Aptus 22 back out and it blows away my 1Ds3 for IQ, but that's all it does.

For IQ the 1Ds3 is the best Camera Canon has, that you can buy. (1Dx isn't out at the time of writing).

Guaranteed, no contest. I use it for every wedding and portrait I do.

I own a 5D2 and 1D4 as backup.

The only things better are medium format and film.

Having both the 5D2 and the 1Ds3 I can assure you that at lower ISO (up to 1600) the 5D2 doesn't have the best image quality - which is what I was trying to point out.

Agreed, in particular ISO 100 on the 1Ds3 still has the best IQ of all Canon cameras. I've had nearly every single one since the 300D to measure it against.

Exciting times ahead with the 1Dx

If those specs are correct I can easily see myself cancelling one of my 2 1DX orders.
Maybe both.

Dear Canon,

Hurry up, my wedding season is already in full swing and I'd like to use your latest tech.

Thank you.

Lenses / Re: 70-300L anyone?
« on: February 20, 2012, 05:38:01 PM »
I think it depends on the aperture.
Is the 70-300L sharper than the 70-200L MkII 2.8?

Probably not at the same apertures as the mkII gets sharper when you stop it down. And I'm a pixel peeping mofo on a full frame body.

Sharper than the 70-200 F4? I can believe that as it's a much older lens.

Sharper than the 70-200L mkI yes indeed.

As for why does it annoy people when sharpness gets discussed, well it's because it's difficult to compare lenses with different max apertures and to be truly diligent on the research you'd need to have a much bigger sample than just one of each lens.
