Canon General / Re: Where the EOS Digital Camera came from
« on: January 21, 2012, 12:23:39 PM »
The also did a monochrome only version of these cameras EOS-DCS-1M, DCS-3m, DCS-5M. I think I’m correct in saying that it’s the only Digital all monochrome camera that Canon has ever made. They were also available in, infrared Monochrome versions as well.

EOS DCS-1. Sensor Size, 27.6 mm x 18.4 mm, 3060 x 2036-pixels
Un-acquired image file size: approximately 6 megabytes (MB) for each image. Acquired image file sizes: approximately 18 MB for each color image acquired normally at 8-bit acquire (and 36 MB when 12-Bit Acquire is on), and 6 MB for each monochrome image.

EOS DCS-3. Sensor Size, 20.5 mm x 16.4 mm, 1268 x 1012-pixels.
Un-acquired image file size: approximately 1.3 megabytes (MB) for each image. Acquired image file sizes: approximately 3.9 MB for each color image acquired normally at 8-bit acquire (and 7.8 MB when 12-Bit Acquire is on), and 1.3 MB for each monochrome or infrared image.

EOS DCS-1. Sensor Size 3.8 mm x 9.2 mm, 1524 x 1012-pixels.
Un-acquired image file size: approximately 1.5 megabytes (MB) for each image. Acquired image file size: approximately 4.5 MB for each color image acquired normally at 8-bit acquire (and 9 MB when 12-Bit Acquire is on), and 1.5 MB for each monochrome or infrared image.

Canon General / Where the EOS Digital Camera came from
« on: January 21, 2012, 07:05:20 AM »
Just thought some of you might be interested to see where the EOS Digital Cameras started from in 1995 the EOS-DCS1, DCS-3, EOS-DCS5. New at the time this lot would have cost you around £42,000. YES I DID SAY Forty Two Thousand UK Pounds. From what little I can find out mainly bought by newspapers for their photo guys. These are part of my own collection of Canon Cameras. Any Info anyone one might have please get in contact.

EOS Bodies / Re: Is it worth picking up the 1D-X?
« on: December 23, 2011, 04:15:37 AM »
Is the 1DX worth it? From what I am reading on the CPS Site the answer is 100% YES (well for me at least).  Whatever the 5d MK3 has it won’t ever be as good with the AF as the 1DX. Lower level cameras never are as good with AF as the 1D series (the 1DMK3 being the exception) it wouldn’t be in Canons interest to make them that way as it would kill sales of the Pro Level cameras.

Six preset Case studies
There are six AF ‘Case studies’ preset within the EOS-1D X with an icon and example usage within the menu display to allow for optimisation of AF options.
•   Case 1 is for general purpose shooting that provides accurate and fast focus across a wide range of shooting situations.
•   Case 2 is designed for situations where the subject may move away from the AF point momentarily.
•   Case 3 allows you to instantly focus on subjects that enter the AF point area.
•   Case 4 is designed for subjects that change speed or direction rapidly.
•   Case 5 is designed for use with automatic AF point selection, Zone AF and AF Point expansion and subjects that move erratically, up and down or left and right.
Case 6 is for subjects that change speed abruptly and move erratically. Like ‘Case 5’ it is used with Automatic AF point selection, Zone AF and AF Point Expansion.

I will be selling my 1DsMk3 ASAP to buy a 1DX but will keep the 1DMK4 as I like the 1.3 crop. I personally am not that bothered about the 12 fps but more interested in the lower noise levels the 1DX Promises but I will wait for it to be released before buying one.

"I just wish that Apple would separate the two formats completely. Ie if you want to listen to music then you buy mp3 player NOT A PHONE. By combining the two formats its just POOR jack of all trades & master of NONE."
Plus 1
FWIW I would not have an iPhone if they gave me one.
If you install Premiere on computer it does not cripple Photoshop.
NO, just your bank account ;D

Once in 2 years, I bought the 1DMk4  for taking photos NOT Video, a total waste of space & money for something I never use. I just wish Canon would separate the two formats completely. Ie if you want video then buy a video camera NOT A DSLR. By combining the two formats its just a POOR jack of all trades & master of NONE.

Software & Accessories / Re: Monitor recomendations for viewing and editing
« on: December 17, 2011, 07:29:38 AM »
I use an EIZO GC234W, I’ve had it professionally calibrated along with the Papers I use, as I do a lot of printing only to A3+ with a Canon 9500. (For me personally photography at the end of the day is all about handling bits of paper, not looking at monitors, & I know for fact you sell 95% more images if they are already printed, rather than showing people images from a computer) The printed results are about 95% or better of what I see on the monitor. I print using PS5 BUT soft proof every thing first.  Also I only use genuine Canon inks.
 They have probably updated this model by now & there maybe better monitors out there now.


•   24” Widescreen supporting a native resolution of 1920x1200
•   Non-glossy, low reflective screen for professional users
•   Hardware-based calibration (requires a measuring instrument) for easy and accurate colour profiling and calibration
•   Shading hood (removable) minimises the effect of ambient light falling on the screen
•   3D LUT for Better Additive Colour Mixture
•   Brightness and Colour Compensation with EIZO's Digital Uniformity Equaliser
•   Three inputs – Display Port (supporting 10 bit) and dual DVI
•   98% coverage Adobe RGB Colour Space
•   New OSD
•   IPS panel - reduced colour shift on viewing angle
•   Eizo Flex Stand
•   Full 5 Year onsite (double swap) UK warranty

I use the EF 50mm F2.5 Macro reputed to be the sharpest of all the canon 50mm lenses.
