EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Survival of the fittest/luckiest

In the 1980’s I was whamming down a windy country road in Lanarkshire Scotland and this guy whacked his camera against my blue car, huge dent in the car, boy they knew how to make cameras in those days!  :o

The 1Dx is the merged 1D series. Here is what i think a big mp Canon should look like. It would be similar to Hasselblad and others in the big mp range. Change it from an EOS C300 to EOS D1 or 100. Dumbing down the cinema aspects for magazine shooter styling and mp size. I can almost hear the buzz of reasons why this wouldn't happen, lol. I like to dream.

Actually that's a great design idea!

It's as pocketable as a 550D which is £499, inc. EF-S 18-55mm IS and built in EF adaptor!)
Or of course body only and a 40 pancake would be nice.

Oh and apparently it's for woman, not condescending at all eh Canon! :o

Pre-order? sorry that one is beyond me

Now this is one rumour I do believe completely

A fabulous pro camera at a fabulous pro price, I expect way higher than 1Dx.

Have to admit though as photogaz '1DXs' does sound better, and sits better on that pyramid, just don't like 3D (so it's guaranteed to be called 3D)

And I’d be really surprised if not two CF slots.

I wonder if those rumours actually ended up being for the 7D and got mixed up ?

How about calling it '1DA' so we can look forward to another 36 years of dripping roast upgrades  ::) :P

sorry, sorry I really just couldn't help that one  ;) ;D

I wonder if the Canon marketing people will embrace the Apple style of version numbering...   I.e. dump it and just have product ranges and call a new one just "the new Canon 1Dx" etc ?

F1(n) -> New F1

Apple didn't even invent that one!

I'm not sure if anything goes next to the 1DX on the right.

Look at the presentation - apart from the middle tier with 4 cameras, the 4 3 1 makes a pyramid.

If the 1DX was centered, it would ruin the entire aesthetic of the page.

The aesthetic is already ruined. If they want it to look pretty, they need to move it over to the right!

Or, release something for that gaping hole in the graphic.

Exactly that's my point and on that basis there are actually two gaps to be filled, both on the right hand side....... don't ya just love a slow news day  ;D ;D

Looks to me that there two spaces to be filled on this graphic (assuming symmetry)

Right hand top tier and right hand middle tier

I’d say high pro MP 1D on top tier and entry level FF on second tier

Nobody even looked at my camera or lenses. They just don't want you obstructing the views of other spectators...

Yip, I regularly noticed a lot of white lenses in the crowds looks like common sense prevailed mostly

United Kingdom & Ireland / Re: Best for Rental in the UK?

Good question!
I wanted to rent recently but was put off by cost (delivery charges), I looked at http://www.hirental.co.uk/ and Calumet. Just checked back at hirental and I’m wondering if they are still trading though. I’m off to check out lens pimp, didn’t know about them thanks  ;D

I use DS Colour Labs and have been very happy with results up to 20x16 (haven’t got them to print anything bigger but I’m sure it would be just as good)

As CanonCameraFan - Follow the instructions carefully to prepare your prints - and download their colour profile

I think their prices are very good except for canvas

PS my local Snappy Snaps does a very good job of film scanning, may be I'm lucky the guy is good!  ;D

Hmmm…. very interesting Perfect Resize 7 was definitely on my software list but these comments are making me wonder. Anyone care to come to it’s defence? I remember a post some time ago where someone was extolling it’s virtues but I can’t remember the context now.
Also can anyone clarify that Bicubic Smoother in Elements 9 which is what I use to enlarge is exactly the same as is in the full product?
