Lenses / DPP DLO's module lenses availability is a hint at lenses roadmap?
« on: December 18, 2012, 03:09:44 AM »
I'm just wondering if a lack of correction data for some lenses in Canon DPP DLO module is not a hint at their life cycle and expected upgrades/end of life announcements. I'm observing what they add to the list of provided lenses and was wondering why 70-200 2.8 (NON IS) was missing all the time. After the rumor, that Canon is about to end this lenses life, I think it might be connected somehow with their absence in the DLO module - they didn't include it because they krew that it's end of life of this lens anyway.

Canon has added some new lenses to the list in DLO, has even addded 1.4 and 2.0 teleconverters variations with some of them, but 70-200 2.8 was still missing.

If this is about to be true, then popular EF 135L 2.0, 50 1.8, 85 1.8, 100 2.8 Macro (non IS non L) and 300 F/4 L IS are missing as well so does it mean, that they are on their upgrade path?

Sports / Cheerleaders at a game

There was a game yesterday I was at. Some really nice cheerleaders were there, so I thought I'd share...

Honestly, this is not intented to bash Ken's +4 setting, but looking again at his photos I am intrigued - maybe this really normal and people really need to add so much?
I use 0 or +1. Very rarely, if it's underexposed and hard pushing was neccessery, I have to give +2.
What settings do you use?

So again I'm admired to Roger Ciala's blog entry. You can take a look on which lenses in their business require more repairs and why, as well camera bodies. There is Canon as well.

The quality of his posts is really really high.
BTW: Words "Nikon fanboys" were  often used :-)

Quote: "Would I change brands or something over it? Of course not. That’s silly. Nikon makes excellent, reliable equipment and most people need a repair maybe once every couple of years. But I certainly am advising newcomers in a different direction, and I’d be a bit hesitant about picking up used Nikon equipment."

Another quote: "Among the Canon zooms, the 24-105 L is one we just think of as bulletproof. Never fails. The Canon 17-55 IS used to have lots of IS failures but obviously got fixed a couple of years ago. Another lens that rarely fails."

Hasselblad has announced their new 5000 Euro camera based on Nex-7. Why writing here about it?
Recently we have seen mirrorless from Canon. Each day here is a fight here between Sony and Canon sensors. And Hasselblad makes the real use of it making it's own case and some buttons for the Nex-7 and selling it as their own new product for  the price of new 5D3 + 70-200 2.8 II.

Guys at are in a great shape as always, so they announced their own version:


Some more info on the subject:

"If you take Canon, for example, all of their DSLRs look the same, but their Powershot cameras have a completely different look, and the same is true of its mirrorless model. So, the question is: ‘What is the Canon style?' What we're doing is designing three cameras – a compact camera, a DSLR and a mirrorless – with the same style," Alessandrini (Hasselblad's new business development manager) tells BJP."

Have you read this: ? It's not Canon yet, but if patent won't be closed to any manufacturer, what we'll see in some time? Just guess and turn your imagination on :)

Sports / Euro American Challenge (American Football) in Warsaw on Saturday
« on: September 03, 2012, 06:40:28 AM »
So on Saturday there was in Poland another American Football game. It was rather a show game than a serious competition. Below are some photos I managed to make with the 5D2 and 70-200 F4 L IS and a video.

So the fun begins again :-)
What are the chances that the specs presented here: 7D2 specs rumor will become true?

You can give five votes  - there are different specs to judge. You can change your decision.

The 7D Mark II a go?

Below is a purported spec list for an upcoming EOS 7D Mark II.

  • 24MP – an all new sensor with phase AF on chip and noticeably lower noise than the current 18MP.
  • 1Dx/5D3 based AF system.
  • 10 FPS.
  • ISO 100-25600.
  • High speed video, with still capture.
  • Improved durability and sealing.
  • Available this year.

EOS Bodies / Poll: What will be the price of first EOS M?
« on: July 20, 2012, 05:38:32 PM »
So everybody's here excited about news on new mirrorless toy from Canon. Having read almost all posts, I haven't found any topic about the price. So let's speculate - what will be the initial price of the EOS M body? I think it would be set between 599$ and 799$.

Edit: Price anticipation in US in US$, or in UK in pounds, or in mostly Europe in Euro :) You know what I mean...

Site Information / So stupid but still so funny :)

I didn't know where to place it, so I thought "Site information" would be a good place. Feel as attacked by cats:
Come on guys, smile a little.

Sports / American football in Poland
« on: July 17, 2012, 01:41:39 PM »
So on Sunday I was at the game - final match of the Polish National American Football League.
This was my first american football game I watched live, as this sport is not so popular in Poland. What do you think about those photos and video?
Shot with 5d2 and 7d, different lenses.

For all of you stuck with the old gear like 5d2 there are some good news. The new ML portal ( announced full support for 5d2 to be ready quite soon. I have dlownloaded and played with the ML v2.3 pre-RC1 version published today. Well, I have to say that ML has gone a long way to what I saw today.
I think this download is available for those who donated. Those who didn't and don't intend to, have to wait for a while yet.
The other good news is, that this version promises to give a very similar experience with ML on all supported cameras. So it means also, that - according to the previous statements - those who are lucky to have 5d3, may expect same experience on their cameras quite soon as well!

I'm sure that some of the owners of 5d3 will be more than happy:!/autoexec_bin/status/195800277079687169, reading that Magic Lantern WILL work on 5d3 :)

EOS Bodies / Next Canon step in the matter of their sensors
« on: April 21, 2012, 08:55:05 AM »
So the battle for 5d3 image quality will continue for some time. No matter for a while whether DXO results are fine or not - the numbers are presented to the public and caused some mess anyway. People in Canon probably are not happy looking at comparisons knowing the public look at them as well and buys equipment following those summaries. So what Canon will do next do defend it's positions?
