Setting a "correct" WB for a picture is challenging, as Neuro has written - it's subjective.
If you will set your WB in the current scene according to the grey card before the shot you will most likely have the correct WB if light will not change between calibration and final shooting.
If you shoot RAW and have a grey card in the scene at your target, and in PP you will pick WB from the card, then in most cases it will be most accurate, neutral and objective WB. But it happens, that you have in your scene parts which are more and less lit. If you would have two grey cards in your scene - one in the shadow and one in the light then it may happen, that those WBs would differ. Sometimes instead of the grey card you can choose white object as a source of WB but it can be more misleading. It complicates even more when you have light sources of different temperature on your photo. Your brain will in most cases still properly interprete colours in the real life scene but on the photo you can get complete strange effects. This is something I'm talking about: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=2470.0 I was challenging a few months ago looking for some methods I wouldn't know before.

It happens that when I am now trying to set the correct WB for photos taken ie outside in the early afternoon, so the photo would look like when I remember it, then it begins to be too strange sometimes (ie too warm as there are yellow and red leaves) so I have to be make reasonable adjustments in PP not to change it the wrong direction. I would like green to look green (and not much blue) and warm to look warm, but when you have a scene lit with sunlight reflected from colorful leaves, then it is still challenging for me. In such cases I think that even a grey card will give you different WBs depending where you would put your grey card in the scene.

@Markejoz - lovely shot, really shows Autumnal colours (I can see why 200,000 Poles feel at home here in Ireland)


Thank you in the name of other 38,5 millions here in Poland :)
Below a photo from a park made today with 300 F/4 L IS @ F6.7 - such a nice landscape lens :)

Welcome!
You will find trolls here like everywhere else, although luckily much less, since Canon is again the greatest gear in the world ;)

I think the first one is the best.  Nice shooting.

Jim

Thanks, it's pity there are nasty shadows on her hands.

As someone who is not a native English speaker (I understand you're Polish), you did not understand my simple logic, so I'll make it even plainer:

(1) Each year Canon typically launches a new Rebel body - so in 2013 we may expect a new 700D (T5i)

(2) Canon DO NOT typically launch a 40D, 50D, 60D......70D (xxD model) each & every year - so once cannot say for sure that one is definitely expected in 2013

(3) It just so happens that 2013 is a year that a replacement for the 60D would normally occur, but to call it a 70D and simultaneously launch a 700D would be too confusing (coincidence that model numbers may conflict)


What I said, in clear concise English was it would be a marketing disaster to attempt to launch 2 new products the same year with nearly identical (except for one zero) model numbers.

...btw P-R-O-V-E-D is how you spell 'proved'...and you actually proved nothing other than trying to be clever...and you did not do a good job at that.

This is a forum for Canon aficionados who are seriously interested in what new products are coming down the line and what the model designation that Canon deem fit to call them e.g. the new 6D is a good example. The 7D is also a model that is due for an upgrade (7D will be 4 years old in 2013) and there are rumours that the 7D2 and a 70D might be merged to create a new King of the Crop Sensors -> this further validates my argument that Canon may be cautious about releasing a new product called the '70D' for the reasons mentioned above. What really matters is what additional features this new flagship crop body will have.

Ok, If this is what you meant, then of course you're right, but it was not clear for me - maybe because I'm not native. I agree, that from this point of view it would be a disaster to launch 7d2, 70d and 700d at the same time.

Proved (by you) ;)

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

1dx to the left and d800 to the right, now I have lifted the shadows even more, 1dx S/N looks like 5dmk3 with pattern noise and loss of details

Yes. And something else without pulling shadows?

I think everyone agrees, that Nikon's files look better, no matter what the process was behind it.

And I find it really really annoying, that this is the only thing Nikon is better in - there are not many more areas in which competition would force Canon to work harder.

Could you please present any other examples in other areas, where Nikon would be better than Canon?

even when i don´t use all resources of a porsche (or a camera) all the time... i still have them when i need them.

This is exactly what I do when I keep all my fat with me - even when I don't use all those resources all the time, I still have them when I need them :D
