Lenses / Re: Which Canon Full Frame Camera is For You?
« on: December 23, 2014, 04:05:58 AM »
Hopefully it comes with a real tilty screen and not the cheap half-baked one-axis tilt.

Please just speak for yourself. I really would be frustrated if a Tilt/Screen will be on the next fullframecamera. The times for a buildin Tiltscreen are gone (for me) and most Pros I know don't like it. It's taking more space and is prone to get broken (even if this is unlikely today).    There are so much solutions with better and larger screens on the hotshoe, connected via HDMI. You can even use every smartphone with WLAN to reach even more impossible viewingangles.

But 99% of the time I wouldn't like to see this on my cam. And no Flash eighter.

>I have been using the LR3...LR5 almost exclusively for quite some years now.
>Could you briefly give me some reasons to start using the DPP?

It's free of charge and you don't have to import the pictures just to adjust the
brightness, which is frustrating in LightRoom.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon to Continue Using Canon Sensors in DSLRs

Most pros could not care less about the slight dynamic range differences between sensors.

That's right. I even would go further... they know, that the difference changes in higher ISO-Ranges. For sports- or Indoorphotography you usually don't use anything below ISO800. On sportevents because of the longer lenses and inside rooms because of the available light.

So let's check the differences of two nearly equally released and categoritzed cams:

So, the (quite huge) difference on ISO 100 flips to an advantage of Canon-Sensors from ISO 800 and upwards. No one tells you this, but it's the opposite of what the forums are telling on and on and on (Hi Drones!). I even wonder why DXO makes no intersection between lo and high of the (unpushed) ISO-Modes.

Canon is traditionally an autofocus/sports aranged brand, I think. So, from their side the sentence "our sensors are the best" could be true, really. For portraits you may use the Nikon instead--- and hell, a real pro doesn't care about brands. If you shoot portraits you can get far better results with a Pentax 645, a cam not much more expensive than a D4s.

I use the Canon Ee-S and it's quite good to focus, even on f1.2. The downside is to use lenses with f2.8 or faster, but that's doable in most cases. Is the 5D Mark3 able to change the Focus Screens anyway? I don't think so...   ;(

I don't think Canon will come out a camera that will take a long time to save a few images to the average speed card... high speed, high capacity card is still very expensive.

I dont think that's a real problem. 8GB of Ram is cheap as nuts and even internal flash mem with 16 or GB is nothing to be concerned about. Those amounts should hold dozens of pictures for a while and a recent UDMA Card can write them away... so after a few seconds of fire the content should be written.

I smell a fullframe foveon/CMOS Hybrid MegaPixel 1Dx S, paired with a Kitlens of 14-105L f1.4...  and at the same time they'll pronounce a new 50mm L1.0.

In your face Sony! ;)

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Says Higher Resolution Sensors Are Coming Soon

Dear Canon.

I don't know how people created pictures in the last few years... how did they manage to take even one serious shot on a 5D with those 11.3 Stops of dynamic range? All my photography can start in maybe 4 years, when Canon will be able to at least ship sensors with 14 or better 16 stops.

On the landscapes, everytime I go outside there is a huge gap between sky and the shadows... I can't really capture the beauty of my scene to the fullest. My HDR Button is broken and I can't use the AEB to compensate even a little bit. If I just could have a Nikon, then every picture would be awesome, I could post my food on Instagramm and there will be no banding in the shadow of my sandwich. Please Canon, PLEASE, give me more Range. My portfolio just depends on the last stop of DR. And give it to me @110 MPixel, because if I want to print it for my mum I will do it on A3.

I have nothing shown to mankind yet, and this is your fault!! And by the way, your primes have aberations. I don't like aberations. I once hat aberations in china, they tasted good. But I can't buy them here.


they just can't match the Japanese efficiency when it comes to fuel injectors


Funny complainments from UK... I guess they're still angry 'bout germany. No hard feelings ;)

Lenses / Re: The New Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM Pancake
« on: September 19, 2014, 07:43:34 PM »
You are joking that Canon 24mm F1.4 is a prime lens suitable for 70D?

No, why should I? The 24mm L is not that big and a fantastic lens. It's at least not much bigger than any S___ty Kitzoom-lens. What else do you want? It gives you a great 38mm equivalent with a Depth of Field equiv to f2.2...

I just think you want to get such a lens for cheap 250$. You won't...

I've never heard of the brand prior to this press release.

What do the young people learn today? ;)

Back, when I was young...

It seems the problem here is that most don't want pancake lenses. What I see a demand for is Ef-s primes with fast apertures and not that much emphasis on size.

Wow. What you can see is immense. I think the opposite. Suprised? There is a lot of demand on the 40mm 2.8 STM, I own one by myself and I'm always surprised what this small thingy can do. At the moment this lens is nearly always on my cam.

So, if someone travels around with a smaller APS-C the 40STM or 24STM could cover most of the needs...

Where is the demand on fast primes on APS-C? There already are fast primes in this focallength-range like the 35mm 1.4L or 24 1.4L. I just don't think that you're willing to pay the prices...

One small tip at the end, maybe you don't know. There are a lot of primes in your range... for example the EF 20mm f2.8 or the really fast EF 28mm 1.8. They're comparable cheap and still to get.

I say again that I am not against Canon release lenses that do not meet my desire. The sad part is that the launch of an EF-S 24mm F2.8 means that Canon will never launch an EF-S 22mm F2. :-[ :'(

They have a 24mm 1.4! What about this one?

I'm disappointed that the launch of this EF-S 24mm F2.8, means that Canon will never launch an EF-S 22mm F2. :( If so hated EOS-M has a great prime F2 lens, why 7D and 70D can not have?

The EOS-M has a smaller focal flange.  You can't compare the EF-S with the EF-M bayonett. Even not with the same sensorsizes. To greate a Wide Angle on a fullframe-bayonett like the EF-S (yes, it's still the same distance as from the fullframe-EF), you need a *lot* more complex lensdesigns.

Btw.. I would buy a good 24mm f4 pancake. Why not? Ok, the viewfinder ist a little bit dark, but so the finder of a 70-200f4 L IS is... I don't need a shallow DOF on wideangles. There is none below f1.4 ;)

I would like to have a 24mm Pancake for the full frame. I really, really, like my 40mm 2.8 STM... and it should be possible as Voigtländer already has something like that in the productline. But the Voigtländer is optically not very good.

EOS Bodies / Re: Are These The EOS 7D Mark II Specifications?
« on: September 08, 2014, 07:55:18 AM »
For me it would be more interesting to fix some annoying bugs on all those new cameras, instead of inventing some (often useless) new functions.

For example, why do we have a 30 seconds limit on the bulb-mode? There is no reason for this, but it's a pain in the ass in the field while taking longexposureshots. Why don't we get the fancy A-DEP Mode back? What's with the eye-controlled AF? Worked great in the EOS-5.

Why is there no small light on the bayonett for nighttime-lenschange (and no on the buttons eighter, but there are some cams with it like the D4S).

Why is there no stacking modus with all those lenses? STM would be perfect for it. This list could go on and on. Sometimes if i grab an old camera like a Contax or a Zenza, I find features I miss after a while.

f1.4? Pfffft.  f1.2!  ;)
