EOS Bodies / Re: Buy 1DX now or wait for an upgrade?
« on: May 21, 2013, 03:33:55 AM »
The wait for the 1Ds3 to be replaced was silly, even with the 1DX announces it was what, 8 months? before release.

So they combined the 1Ds and 1D cameras into one body and made it kick ass. You betcha they will be a much longer wait for the replacement than ever before. 3 years counting from now.

I don't think there is anything Canon can improve on this current model to make me switch to another body. Other than a true silent shutter.

ISO1600 RAW file please!

Top left side of the image was burnt, the highlights of the trees in that area were dodged.

The mids were lifted to bring the haze out more. Those are the fairly straightforward observations. In fact the top left is the biggest giveaway. There was probably some composition going on too.

Also a fair bit of levels and curves going on there as well. Doesn't look like any standard filters (like Nik or Alien Skin) were applied though as it's a nice clean image. Too much dynamic range to not of been played with though.

does anyone have an idea why Canon released such a camera? who is this small DSLR for?

tiny shiny overpriced toy...

I've had a go on the Fuji mirrorless and it confused the hell out of me. But the size was awesome.

Now if they made a competing camera with the same menus and buttons as the EOS............oh, look, Canon has.

Software & Accessories / Re: 1d X "silent" mode.

Hi guys!

Just a quick question, is it in anyway thinkable that the 1d X could have a firmware to add the silent mode of the 5d3?

The mode implemented in the 1d X really is a joke....

There is no silent mode on the 1DX...but i would be nice if Canon made a firmware with it in as I use the 5D3 for my ceremony shots.

It's certainly possible, just as how it was possibly to increase the Raw capture rate of the 7D and do whatever they are doing with video on the 5D3.

The features are always there (within reason), they just need to be unlocked.

About time too.

Lighting / Re: An open letter to Canon regarding the Canon RT system
« on: February 03, 2013, 07:59:00 AM »
I'm sure there was a very good reason for lack of 2nd curtain sync. I doubt it's something they overlooked.

Honestly though, we have wireless flashes. Good ones too (I have six 600EX-RT's) so I think you're nit picking in an extreme way...good to comment but write an open letter to Canon...c'mon?

Well, what it 'could' be is this.

You can set the 1DX to move the AF point relative to the way it is held. Combine that with the fact that you can set the metering to the focus point (or not) then maybe these setting need investigating.

An easy way to test this would be reset the camera setting completely, or, point it at a white wall - filling the viewfinder, rotating the camera to see if the same thing happens. If it doesn't your settings are causing it.

I don't like the red arrow and the yellow straps on the Nikons.

Yes, really.

A camera that processes the image in camera.

Smart move.

Puns intended:

The body count is fine, as long as the 7D is used as a decoy back at the base only to be used if the other two bodies are taken out.

A 300 2.8 with Tele is going to suck. You might as well take the 100-400L, lighter, more versatile. It's not like these places lack sunlight.

I'd try to trade the 1DS for a 5D3 just to reduce the weight, but that's me. I'd also change the 70-200 for an F4 version.

Make those changes and you've saved 4-5 kilos.

Sounds like Safety shift.

You've put the camera in a position where it cannot take the shot within it's limits set by you.

You can get around this easily by selection Auto Iso on the camera...much better chance that the safety shift won't cut in that way. You can disable it though.

In a way it's a good thing, when you pull up the files n Lightroom you can see the setting it used and you can ask why they ended up being what they were.

It's not like the R7's are expensive?

400 seconds. It's amp glow. There's so little of it and no hot pxels that it shows just how good that new 5D3 sensor is.

400 seconds, that's a lot, if you need to do exposures that long most will stack the image.
