Really like the idea of this. How about cropping out everything except the reflection leaving the image inverted! I think that would make it less 'disturbing' which I agree it slightly is.

Interesting, my eye prefers the original I like that the figure is below centre and for me the right side lead in railing is too dominant in the crop.  Nice image

Use a company that supply colour profiles, and have a service that doesnt auto colour correct, calibrate your monitor and do small test prints for referance

If this was a weathersealed 'L' version of the 100D/SL1, then I would be interested.

Well if it's anything like my gloss painting it will be totally waterproof..... Only thing is you won't be able to get the battery and SD card in or out!  :o

If it is CE/IR I wonder if they would/could come after people who have bought through them for duties retrospectively?

You're effectively buying grey import and going to a lot of trouble to do it; just order from DigitalRev or HDEW and get a UK spec camera (actually, it might be Australian spec, but will come with the right plug!  :) ). The better importers (i.e. not those on Ebay) will often offer their own warranty.


+ No hassle from the rozzers at customs and you get to play (practice) with your new toys before your holiday

EOS Bodies / Re: to all the Megapixel and DR whiners....

the "community" in internet forums is not very happy with the 6D AF.
so why did canon not make them happy?
after all.... canon should have seen that coming after they read/heard complains about the 5D MK2 AF. not?

Canon will make them happy, eventually. Guess what the 6D2 will improve on! will it be incremental, 11 cross points or get the 7D AF treatment who knows. They have given themselves lots of wiggle room and created a line with mileage. It’s about getting people to buy stuff but always wanting to come back for more, they are very very good at it.

The new EOS-1 body is amazing and a big step over the 1D X. I like it.

Me too  :P

One question: when Canon will have something like this? Man, I love the RETRO/CLASSIC/VINTAGE look :o

As a Canon shooter, I'm little jealous here :-X

Me too, would look right at home round my neck;

RETRO - yip
CLASSIC - mmm, well maybe not

I have absolutly no doubt Canon will get into this market... in about 5 years time just as futuristic/contemporary comes into style  :o


From my experience with image processing, I can tell you that these images were slathered with EE either in camera or post - so many EE artifacts its not funny.  Hopefully it can be disabled if in camera.

Sorry ... but what is EE?

EE = Edge Enhancement/sharpening.  If you look at any of the high contrast borders there is massive artifacting showing that substantial artificial sharpening was applied to the point where it looks unnatural IMO.

I.E. on this picture look to the on the left border of the model's arm and leg and you can see a thick outline/ghosting caused by the edge enhancement processing, you might need to zoom in a bit:

Thanks ... I see it too. In fact, it looks like her skin on the legs has a horizontal pattern to it  :o

more like she's wearing tights?
