EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS-A1 with Hybrid EVF? [CR1]
« on: December 22, 2013, 06:03:59 PM »
Only if by "put one there" you mean "put one in their cell phone".  Most people generally assume that a high-end camera should be able to do anything that a cheap cell phone camera can do, and if that assumption is broken, those people get unhappy.  :)  And, of course, there are really good reasons for cell phones to be able to handle video—video chat, for example—so supporting video in cell phone cameras was pretty much inevitable, which made video modes on DSLRs equally inevitable

I would have thought that 'most people' would buy a high end DSLR exactly because it doesn't do what a smartphone does.

Apparently this camera will have a hybrid EVF, optical for stills and electronic for video purposes.

Phew... Thank goodness I'll never be able to afford this, I hate to think that I'd never use half the functionality in something so expensive  ::)
Love the name though  ;D

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Any reason to choose a 7D over a 70D?
« on: December 21, 2013, 07:09:48 AM »
Ok  I'm being lazy I should download both manuals, but is there any difference in auto iso functionality between the 7D (with update) and 70D?

Regards

When shooting in raw... not really. I seem to recall the 70D has an extra stop, but you wouldn't ever use that.  With the aps-c sensor, you generally don't want to go over 3200 because the grain becomes intolerable.

Thanks for the info  :)

but there’s a possibility of a big DSLR announcement.

This is the most interesting part of this to me, I remember posting about their body strategy before.
Imagine if they release a 6d equivalent body, in all ways except a little better AF you know one that allows you to photograph your children running about, not exactly unreasonable for that price point, that would really put the cat among the pigeons.

Hopefully Canon will think over its policy in handling third party equipment

Never going to happen unless dgatwood's suggestion is taken up in large numbers which of course is never going to happen. You could always go back to the retailer and challenge them for selling counterfit goods, after all you have proof !

Am I the only one that finds the thought of a camera setup attracting attention at a Dr who convension hilarious  ;D

Thanks Carl.  Just recently, I've been asked to cover the concert/school graduation of my daughter (though my daughter is just one of the performers).  Here are some shots from it.  Low-light, moving kids, lots of shadows... Still no problem with my 6D.  It's a real high-ISO performer.

Lovely photos, lovely kids, brought a smile to my face good stuff

I just feel screwed by Canon USA decision not to carry m2 line, after I spent certain amount of $ on eos-m, Does anyone agree with me that Canon USA "eos-m" class action lawsuit should be in place?

No

I think you'll find it was you that bent over

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Best tablet for on-location preview
« on: November 30, 2013, 05:05:14 AM »
OP specifically mentioned issues with exposures not looking on the screen like lightroom when he gets home.


 
To address this, be aware that many tablets have a limited color gamut, and will ALWAYS look different from a nicely calibrated color monitor with a wider color gamut.  There is nothing that can be done except to be sure you pick a tablet with as wide a color gamut as possible.  Neither Lightroom or any other software can fix a limited color gamut.
The DisplayMate web site evaluates a lot of mobile displays for vatious charcheristics that are of interest to Photographers.

You can see the extensive results here for some of the full sized tablets.  If I were going to pick a tablet which would have a display and colors that were as close to a real monitor as possible, it would be a Kindle HDX, followed closely by the Ipad air.  The Surface RT is good but the Samsung is a step down.

nice link thanks for the info :)

here is what they say about the new nexus 7

"Overview of the new Google Nexus 7
The new Google Nexus 7 (manufactured for Google by Asus) has a very impressive display that uses the highest performance LCDs with Low Temperature Poly Silicon LTPS, the same technology used in the iPhone 4 and 5, but on the new Nexus 7 with more than 3 times the screen area – it’s currently the second largest LTPS on a mobile display after the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 mentioned above. The very high efficiency LTPS technology allows the new Nexus 7 display to provide a full 100 percent Color Gamut and at the same time produce the brightest Tablet display that we have measured so far in this Shoot-Out series. More on these issues below."

100% color gamut  :o i know i felt it was really nice to use and view picture on but wasn't expecting that
