United Kingdom & Ireland / Re: Canon 5D MkIII UK Price Drop

Jessops have had it for 2339 for a couple of weeks now and combined with the half price BG-E11 Battery Grip (150) is a pretty good deal for a local bricks  mortar store……. and then I look at DigitalRev :-[

nope, just honest.

I'd have gone with pathetic runt of a pointless little camera but that's probably a little over the top  ;D

Perfect example of how content and story is far more important than IQ, NR and all the rest put together, I’m drooling for all those lil’ 135 boxes. Bet that shop smells real great and yes I have a totally romantic unrealistic view of the past. ;)

'cause I like to take pictures of actions(like motosports, animals etc.).


You may also want to consider a monopod with a good 90 deg quick rotating head, same rules apply though cheap and flimsy is just throwing your money away.

PS you have better written English than a lot of people I know that it’s their first language  ;D ;D ;D

Hi everybody!

I have noticed that more image samples have been released.
I have been following the 6d for a long time as I'm thinking seriously about getting one (jumping from a T1i will be a big change :D)

What do you think about these pics?

www.whatdigitalcamera.com/equipment/galleries/sample-images/canon/34718/1/canon-eos-6d-beta-image-sample-gallery.html



As ever it's the RAW's we need to see  but I do like the flower (3200) and the bike (12800) although wrong lens choice for the flower shot I'd have thought but anyway not seeing any nasty colour blotches starting in the dark areas at 12800 very usable, wish they had done that one at 25600 though.


Some RAW shots from 6D and an updated DPP raw converter.  :)



Absolutely, no decision from me until April/May

Canon General / A bit worse for wear
« on: November 24, 2012, 09:22:16 AM »
Hi all,
Does anyone know how to repair/disguise brassing on a F1n? (actually on a AE-FN finder)
I’m also wondering if there would be anywhere (UK) that could put a new finish on it cheaper than just getting a ‘new’ clean one.

This is NOT for selling on!

Any help/suggestions most appreciated.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sigma 35 f/1.4 DG HSM First Impressions
« on: November 21, 2012, 05:06:31 PM »
with the new lens series from sigma you don´t need canon for that.
you can do it yourself.

Which means you don't need to have a camera with AFMA or software like FoCal??

OK I read more than 150 words. Interesting article and it looks pretty too, I agree Dustin, Zeiss like.

Really looking forward to learning more about the focus/update software that accompanies this (and all new?) lens and of course more sample pictures

How does this fit in with AFMA?

"This lens kicks butt, takes names, and basically posterizes the manufacturers who make the cameras this lens will fit on."

Ah! at last a lens review I can understand, no techno bollocks just straight to the point ;D ;D

EF 35 f/2 IS

Well that's a first, two images from Canon I really like!!  ;D

That's making me think 6D + 35mm could be a really good low light/street setup

Sorry about the acronym Rusty, normally I hate them ‘cos I don’t know what half of them mean myself  ;D

I have to admit when I wrote that I was kind of angry/frustrated and was thinking it might just flush someone out into saying what actually goes on. One reflection that’s silly and never going to happen.

The reason for the frustration is simply that I have for some time been planning on getting a 5D3 next April/May time it simply ticks all the boxes for me and one of the first and important uses will be a wedding evening reception. Exactly the sort of event I thought this camera was built to excel at. Ah well at least time is still on my side, there may be a fix and I can just use what I’ve got now anyway if needs be.

Louis - why not start a thread on the new Canon forum, you may get a bigger ball rolling there? I’m not a pro so don’t have any weigh or real reason to complain that’s business related.

I hope I’m right in thinking that issues big enough to be affecting business raised by pros are addressed by Canon as a priority!
