6D Sample Images / Re: for those who snub the 6D AF...
« on: February 01, 2013, 05:33:26 PM »
There is so much hair splitting here.  I don't get it, the shot is absolutely not in focus.  It looks like its not to blame on the camera, but the aircraft window it was shot out of.  I have shot gazillions of pictures out of aircraft windows, that's usually what you get when you hold the camera at an angle to the aircraft window and near the edge of it.  I'm not sure why the original poster tried to prove camera auto focus accuracy with it (don't care what camera it was taken with), or why others are arguing for or against.  This picture proves nothing regarding camera auto focus...

(Neat shot though!)


oh boy that is so +1

The same way people have received the majority of Canon's offerings in the past year.  People will read the specs and:

•First, scream and cry about the lack of megapixels and dynamic range.
•Then, complain about how it's far too expensive and that Sony and Nikon have xxx for $xxx less.
•Flood of posts from people complaining about how Canon is neglecting their customers because they personally wanted a 5D4 or 1DX2 instead of a 7D2.
•Then talk about all the stuff that they hope Canon addresses in a future firmware update.
•Then get antsy about pre-orders and shipping and create threads asking if anyone has gotten theirs in yet.
•Then when it takes a while, we'll get a flood of "I'm switching to Nikon" threat posts and demands that Canon fix their production lines (regardless of natural disasters).

Then when it finally comes out people will talk about how awesome it is and how much they love it, and how they never doubted Canon for a minute.

While your at it could you tell me the lotto numbers for this weekend cos that looks pretty spot on to me  ::)

I think the 'Return to Shareholders' graph is the important one  ;D

Hi Jens,

You do realise that there is a price to be paid for all this advice, when you get back you’ll have to show us all some photos!  ;D

As for your original IQ test I think you just took two cars put them both into first gear and drove them both down a straight road. Ok maybe not the best analogy I’ll probably get burned for that  :P

I don’t have either of these camera’s but I do know which one I’d rather have on a trip like that, 5D3 hands down
1. Weather sealing
2. High iso performance for real fast shutter speeds (doesn’t sound like you’ll be taking a tri-pod) mono-pod?
3. AF for animal action
4. FPS as above

When you are using the above that’s when the 5D3’s IQ shows

You might also want to have a quick read of this

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Shutter count on a new 6D
« on: January 28, 2013, 08:21:19 AM »
I can recall a couple of previous posts regarding this from what I remember it's nothing to bother about, I'd assume they have to fire off a few shots at the factory, probably computer controlled to check all is working. Don't think there's a guy at the end of the production line firing off a few shots of his mates, but hey ya never know  ;D

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: EVF for Canon DSLR
« on: January 28, 2013, 08:05:48 AM »
I can offer you a much better (and cheaper) solution. First, if your camera takes interchangeable focusing screens (all canon FF cameras except 5D3), install screen Eg-S, which will make subjects really snap into focus vs the stock screen. Zeiss lenses have focus confirmation, meaning even though you rack focus manually, you still get a focus confirmation light / beep. Focus confirmation via the camera's AF system is just as accurate as focusing via live view sans tripod. Enjoy your Zeiss!

Interesting, does using the Eg-S with EF lenses lose you any functionality?
The viewfinder gets a fair bit darker compared to the stock focus screen if you're using slow lenses (f2.8 and faster is the same, f4 is noticeable, f5.6 is much darker). Other than that, no issues at all.

cheers, good to know that

EOS Bodies / Re: Where are you EOS 70D?
« on: January 27, 2013, 12:04:34 PM »
Well, there's a 6D and a smartphone running EOS remote... but it's unwieldy if you're holding both of them.
Yeah...not to mention you lose the 1000-shot battery life advantage of having a DSLR.

I wonder... you will be using your wifi, but on the other hand your screen and its illumination will be off instead of on. I wonder which uses more energy and which contributes more heat and electrical noise inside the camera?

I like the thought that the screen on my 60D keeps the display hardware outside the body when I'm doing long exposure astro photos.

And speaking of weather sealing... what about the microphone holes?

what about the main dial behind the shutter button!

If it’s (Edit: 7D2) got the new sensor tech I think it will and should be welcomed with open arms, prices change, new manufacturing processes are really pinning your colours to the mast.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon's Roadmap for 2013 [CR2]

1200D, 18mp + Digic 5 = same image quality as 650D maybe wifi for a bit of bling would I think be rather good to great for the base level DSLR offering.
As for AF points who knows what is going through their heads with that one but I’d guess 11 with one cross type. It should be 11 cross but they have screwed up so much higher up the food chain there’s no chance of that.
Whilst they lag behind on sensors they should be really pushing those other differentiators in a system like ergonomics and AF performance and yet these are the things they cripple or are at best inconsistent with in the upgrade paths
