I myself moved from the Terrible to the Just OK class after I returned my camera for an exchange.  At this price range however, I wish there wasn't even a discussion about 5D3 low light AF performance except to question how it can be so good all the time for everyone without question.

So at the moment I am enjoying better low light AF with the 6D but I hope the 5D3 low light AF performance somehow magically improves after the next firmware update. 


Hi Rusty,
Are you talking about the AF flash assist issue or low light focusing in general? For me the two are very different. Thought the 5D3 was pretty hot in the available light focusing department, no?

You don’t have to get the latest a greatest galaxy to get good photos, I’m sure I posted elsewhere on here but for an experiment I got a display walls worth of 16x12s printed for a school trip my wife was running and I was amazed at the (relative) quality of them, didn’t think they would stand up to that sort of enlargement but hey they were loved by the intended audience. It goes without saying that photos intended for the interweb are just fine too. The biggest problem with all camera phones for me is shutter lag so she’s got an app that purports to help but I think it just cripples the res. I also hate holding at arm’s length, it’s just the most rubbish way to take a photo. That’s why I think the ‘M’ is such a joke it’s got the worst two features of a camera phone and you can’t even make a call with it :P

I don't think holding at arms length is a rubbish way to take photos.  Live view is a very good way of taking landscape photos.  Also, it depends on the preference of the user.  It might not be for you but don't generalize.  A lot of users are fine with taking pictures using a live view.


Yeh live view with a bleedin tripod!
I’m not generalising Jason, It’s my opinion. I struggle to think of a less stable way of taking a photograph. Oh wait standing on one leg whilst holding a camera at arms length… yip that would do it  ;D

The more I look at it, the more I think it's pathetic.

Correct

I would be interested to see the same tests done with two targets, but with both targets being in bad light (none in good light).

+1 I'd really like to see those numbers

I think she's saying.... It was this big...... ;)

"...when Zim allowed me to use the microscope and the tweezer"  :P
Well, all I can say is watch your back. You are in so much trouble...
 :)


hehehe..... it's the new 1200L what the hell are you guys talking about :P ;D
Ah! The elusive one hand holdable 1200L. Wow! I missed that!

Sorry, my bad.

Yes they're going to call it "le coq gaulois"

ooops that's me back on the naughty step :P

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon T4i or wait for T5i?
« on: December 27, 2012, 06:29:34 PM »
Absolutely true but I wonder though are we not entering a time where Canon are about to change their production line to a 0.18 micron fabrication process and so the question ‘should I wait’ will become very valid, I’m thinking more 7D than rebel admittedly.


What do you mean? 180nm just means you will get smaller pixels ( i think i heard about 100 MP on FF?). The size of pixels in current Canon dslr sensors is a lot bigger. In case of the 650D: 4300nm. That means 20 times smaller pixels, huge picture files, low frame rates, and very poor high-iso performance. I don't know why you want that 180nm fabrication process ;).


He means Fabrication process, not pixel width of 180nm.

Meaning less space is taken up by electronics and more space allotted to "larger" photodiodes.


Thank you

In other words, if you need a camera now, buy it. There will always be a newer, better model soon. In the case of the Rebel line, soon = next year.

Send it back and wait what is coming next year.

Body(s)??  ???
I'd be more than amazed if any more full frames were anounced for the 6D market segment next year. Will the new tech crop sensor be that good??  :o

When I was ten there was Airfix and proper Meccano and all was well with the world.  ;)

Anyway to the OP have a great Christmas, the best present you will get this year is the person who’s giving you that present.

To everyone else on this great forum have a happy and safe Christmas and a prosperous new year.

You should go to your CF card manufacturer's website to download their file recovery software.  I know my Sony and Transcend cards have this option and I imagine others would have this application, too.


+1 on that or http://www.cardrecovery.com and get a card reader, sounds like you've not used or done anything with the card since the error so all should be good.
