Canon General / Re: More Canon Lens Mentions [CR2]

<p>We’ve received a couple of more confirmations from people that the EF 11-24 f/4L we <a href="" target="_blank">first reported back in August</a> is in fact legit.

sweet, out my league 16-35 for me but should this not be a CR3 then?

EOS Bodies / Re: Multilayer Sensors are Coming From Canon [CR2]

and straight to a CR2, this does seem very plausible. I do hope one of those top end cameras is the high MP camera and they leave the 5 series at around 24 though, if that's even how you measure these things with a multilayer sensor ?

EOS Bodies / Re: Poll: Would you buy a high MP Canon EOS 5DIV?

The 5D line has always been an event photographers camera and thats who buys them. The files as they are are a good size, making the MP 30+will increase the files by a 1/3 and after editing a raw and saving it as a PSD they are already in the 250mb range which is more than enough. You can only fit 1000 images on a 32gb card so at a typical wedding your shooting 64gbs as it is shooting redundancy is 128gb. It basically means more money to be spent on storage reducing profit margins. When your not printing past A2 or even A1 that space is wasted. Granted it gives you room to crop, but most event shooters don't shoot to crop just adds time in post.

its not a landscape camera and most event shooters don't need that kind of resolution.

The high MP camera designation was always the 1DS and I hope that continues or I for one as an event photographer will be disappointed as Canon won't make a camera for lets be honest the main area photography is still commercial. Landscape photography is a niche, there are not many photographers making a living from it anymore.

I would be happy with a modest boost to 24 or even staying the same with an improvement in noise performance and adding a few other features like GPS and possibly making the camera a little lighter.

+10000 and that's what my money (literally) is on

Here is the answer all, 2 videos have been published from Canon 40mn ago:

But, does that mean that a new camera is coming?What do you guys think about that?

If the image on this post is some indication, the camera seems to have no mirror and an EVF :)
Tell me I'm wrong?
Sorry, you're wrong!

Although it's just an ad and the pic is comming from a marketing dep, let's think ist technically correct:
- I can see the shutter
- I think, I can see the mirror shining through the bayonet
- I'm quite sure, I can see optical elements surrounding the VF
- The body looks quite like a 5D3, so no implemented advantages (size, etc.) that a ML would bring
- the lens is just a "normal" L lens

Conclusion: Sorry, you're wrong!

and I'm sure I don't have a wee man inside my camera  ;D

It seems that I must come in here to Nut Central...and Explain this. No Camera! No Lens. You Canon Fan Boys have had nothing to be excited about...including 7d mark something....This is a 3d Printer...OK! BACK TO NORMAL! :-\

I'm sure your absolutely correct, about the printer that is  ;)

EOS Bodies / Re: Next Rebel Going EVF? [CR1]

Wouldn't be a DSLR then, marks the end of the rebel line and the start of a new one. I'm sure I read a few peeps on hear predicting that a while back? is only CR1 though.

Camera body pretty irrelevant, when you say 'gear' I'm thinking lenses. I stayed with just a kit lens for way way too long, and I really should have known better. So I voted for the last option.

What causes the annoying halo?

It's caused by the hdr software photographer being dumb and just assembling the source brackets according to exposure with no concern for the image content (how could it?). I find this to be a great problem with a *lot* of tonemapped shots, even with ones that are considered good by their authors.

Esp. with parts of trees or something else tall reaching into the sky, it's a halo and/or the top part of the object going suddenly very dark. The latter probably like our eye sees the world, but it isn't supposed to be in a single image.

As I think I ably demonstrated  ;D  ;D

Guilty as charged m'lud

But in my defence it was in a folder named 'practice'  :-[
Really nailed the o'l halo effect, hate hate hate it, I have no idea why I even kept it, maybe just in case a topic came up which I felt competent to participate in  ;D

So I guess that it's not because that's the only shape Patterson dev and fit trays came in then?  ;D

And just like Neuro, this was one of my most frequently used mode :D

Zone AF was your most frequently used mode? What types of photography are you doing? For my wildlife stuff, I use spot AF / AI servo with my 7D almost exclusively. I have trouble enough getting the focus I want with that and can't see how zone AF would work.

No no, not Zone AF  ;) . Zone AF doesn't let you choose the initial AF point. The mode that Neuro and I were talking about is Automatic AF Point Selection (yes, the one for people who don't really care about what should be in focus). And when you are in Automatic AF Point Selection AND AI Servo, you can select the initial AF point for tracking  :) (I know, it is not really intuitive, and may be that's why the feature's been there for 5 years and still is ignored by some). The advantage of this mode is that all the AF points are used for tracking, so when the subject quits the initial AF point, the other points will take care of it.

YMMV, but I'd avoid using Spot AF combined with AI Servo. Spot AF uses a narrower area for acquiring focus, so it is slower to acquire focus, and it is more difficult to keep the subject within that (narrower) area.

Here are some photos I took with my 7D and my 100mm L Macro, I wish I had the 1D X/5D III and the 70-200mm f/2.8 II L IS for these situations, but that was all I could afford  :D

I just learned a bunch of stuff there marinien thank you
