Canon General / Re: Announcements Coming Tonight

This may not be popular to say but the new SL1 will definitely get my attention once:

1.) the price drops significantly AND
2.) if Canon releases a couple more pancakes (20'ish mm & a 30'ish mm) at a reasonable price. 

Totally with you on that. Aside from professional gigs I love taking my 5DIII and 40mm out to social occasions because it feels like a compact to me.  However, the SL1 with a series of pancakes as you mentioned above would be bliss for such occasions.

Agree, a wide pancake on this could make for a nice street setup. Would be nice to see a EF-S pancake unless they are going to make a really wide EF one.

I asked about a 20mm pancake a while back and aparently it's not viable :(

YET ANOTHER 18MP APS-C from CANON!

They should earn an award for the most milked sensor in the history of photography! ah, what's an old sensor among friends right?

Nah I think the most milked sensor in the history of photography is FP4  ;D
I would have said Kodachrome 64.....

 ;D ;D True and it had better DR  :P

It was also mentioned that the price of the EOS 100D was “a bit expensive”.

Compaired to what? and EOS M or a Powershot or a 1DX  :o  ;D

Naaa, pinch of salt must be a slow weekend at rumour towers  ::)

Canon EF Zoom Lenses / Re: Canon EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS USM
« on: March 16, 2013, 06:08:29 AM »
Here's another horse shot.  I am really pleasantly surprised at how good the bokeh (very smooth) is on this lens for a variable aperture telephoto zoom.

Dustin, have to ask you...how do you get such nice/soft tones? Love how you process your images! :o

That whole workflow was all within Lightroom (4), so no Photoshop there.  I have invested in some presets for LR that I further customize.  The basic look is from a preset collection (http://www.adobelightroompresets.net/lightroom-presets/ultrafaded-presets/) Preset 9.  By the way, these preset collections often go on sale for 50% off.  I then further tweaked the tone curve to bring a little of the low end back, used a preset brush to paint in a little sharpness and contrast to the forelock.  I probably tweaked the sliders a hair, but I doubt that I have any more than about 4 minutes in processing this particular image.  Another collection I use a lot in my workflow is the "Instagram style" presets.  I usually customize the sliders somewhat after processing, as I am pretty familiar with the way that LR works at this point.  I typically spend as much or more time in adding metadata, descriptions, and keywords as I do processing.  I am careful about all of those things because a fair bit of my work moves commercially in one way or another.

Dustin, I'd also like to thank you for sharing this I've been really enjoying your photographs. I was wondering though do you use the RAW or JPG presets?

Regards

If I mounted the Canon 85 1.8 *without* powering down after a Sigma freaked it out, even the Canon would cause FoCal to crash.

A side issue, but I thought you shouldn't ever do this as it can damage your camera?

I agree though, if this super-entry-level, whatever it ends up being, has 6fps,  the 70D better have something worthwhile to be deemed 2-notches better.

It will probably have 9 cross types, where does that leave the 6D  :o

the 650d has 9 cross type, just like the 40d,50d,60d...so what?

Actually that was my point Canon's feature list has never been linear so it could easily have 6fps and not step on the 70D. I doubt it will though

Well the wait is over, wonder if the lens worked!

If it is much smaller than a Rebel then how will you hold it?

As well as an M I guess!

Sounds like they are on a much better track with something like that and they do need to develop EVF don't they.

UK intro price £3175
A new production line sensor will be a gravy train for Canon

The 6D has £160 cash back not 100  ;D

http://www.mathersoflancashire.co.uk/prodDetail.html?intProductID=2579&intCategoryID=5

Still not as good as DRev for the 6D but the 5D3 price is, only £36 diff. I wouldn't have an issue paying that.

Edit: Actually the 6D deal includes a bag and 16Gb card, depending on what bag/card may be equal to DRev

I bought a 16-35 yesterday. Sigh.

for 160 quid, send the one you've just got back!

Fantastic, no RAW and heavy price but it's a logical progression. would love to have this on my holidays  ;D

Interesting comments about human 'micro' expressions, honesty and love,  could equally capture the opposite and be a very dangerous thing. Does a wedding become just one big lie detector test? In those examples does he really love her?

I think you couldn't do this roll less justice than to pre-shoot all pictures of it digitally.

+1 That's exactly how I felt, but much more politely put than this old Kodachrome user would have managed
