Reviews / what utter crap this is.... samyang 24mm TS

While I'm sure that marketing can put the right spin on this statement to make it factual even without the word "may" being included, but that word shows some wishful thinking. And from an image quality perspective, wishful is about as far as this lens goes – unless you stop down to at least f/5.6 or f/8.

With a wide open aperture, the Samyang 24mm f/3.5 Tilt-Shift Lens delivers blurry image quality. It's just ugly. Do not plan on using this lens at any aperture wider than f/5.6, or better yet, f/8 (especially for full frame corners image quality). Use the "Image Quality" tool link at the top of this page to see the lab test results for yourself.


???

over 900 euro and such a bad image quality?

the numbers are nonsense, the whole article misleading.
no word about read noise, A/D performance etc.

ISO/Noise is affected by more then how many photons you can catch.

and the sensor captures photons that don´t belong to visible light too (that is part of how they get such high sensitivity).

no word about how this will work for us photographer and "photography" when you capture IR and UV light.

New Camera Sensor Eliminates Need for Flash

well, no.
if you believe that you don´t understand what flash is used for.

Is there any trick to make 5D Mark III's in-camera CA correction support 3rd party lens such as Sigma 35? Sigma 35 is definitely a nice lens, except with very strong chromatic aberration when shot at large apertures.

i don´t really care as i don´t shoot JPG or use DPP to edit the RAW files.

but canon will sure not incorporate data for third party lenses.

but CA correction in LR works wery well.... when it is CA and not blooming.

... a new type of autofocus technology.

Genuinely new or just new for Canon?



what kind of AF (usefull for a DSLR) has canon not used but other DSLR makers have?

Pellicle mirror.

that´s just a semi-transparent mirror and canon has used that in the 60s for metering and later (look at my name ) for focusing.

You mention DSLRs. Did they have DSLRs in the 60s?   ::)


nitpicking.... and it´s still phase AF.

but the AF is still phase detection.

not sure if canon would call that a new AF....
but then... sensor based phase detection would not be new either.

What you seek is named the Olympus PEN E-P5.

and with the PEN E-P8 you will also get a display with more then 420k pixel.....   ::)

I hope this is a classic Canon announcement and it isn't really "new", just so it will be eye control. I doubt it though.

Digital Eye Control AF?   ;)

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Olympus OMD EM5 or 6D
« on: May 23, 2013, 04:08:47 AM »
I think something I'm looking for is definitely not point and shoot (think: something with a viewfinder).

Thanks for all the advice so far, but I'm really considering the EM5 just because of the smaller profile.
If I intend to shoot with a 6D, its profile is much larger and would probably attract more attention. I believe the less attention that I attract, the more focused I will be when composing..
The 6D also lacks weather sealing ("splashproof", fine.)...

Oh, and one last consideration... I am a student so I don't have few thousand dollars to pull out my arse.
Thus, another plus for the lower priced, Olympus camera.
Sigh.

Maybe I should just give up and start using film (I do have an AE-1 and an AT-1 in my closet)...


Why are people all of a sudden scared of being noticed with a camera? Be confident with your equipment. Point it like you mean it. Otherwise whats the point?

In Japan just about every Jim Bob and his uncle has a camera and they take pictures of just about anything.

I get a lot of curious people enquiring about my 7D and what lens I use. Perfect time to chat to them and maybe get a picture of them too!

If you want discreet an iPhone is just as good as any p&s. it's better in fact cos its more useful!!


yeah well you should visit great britain or the usa.   ::)

then you will notice you are one the same level as a suspected peadophile or terrorist.

did you really not noticed how problematic it is in some countrys to take pictures in public?
i mean... the internet is full of reports and videos about this.

and no.. after a dozend such discussions you don´t have time nor lust to discuss you rights with the police or security guys.
 
while the gov. is monitoring every street corner... photographer (especially with a DSLR) are forbidden to take pictures.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 70D Coming in July? [CR2]
« on: May 22, 2013, 05:32:10 AM »
one thing is for sure... this shows how useless rumor sites are.  ;)

the camera is pretty much final.
TV adds are produced.. and not ONE rumor site has good sources that can tell the specs.

all we have is different CR1 stuff.

Where is the 70D?
 We’re told today that the 70D has been pushed into April, we had hoped that an announcement would be coming next week.
 
DIGIC 6
 DIGIC 6 will be introduced tonight in the SX280 HS as reported a few days ago. We’re told we can expect DIGIC 6 to make its first appearance in an EOS camera inside the EOS 70D.
 
18mp Sensors
 Keep an eye on the SL1, as it has a brand new 18mp sensor on the inside. As present, we can’t confirm that it’s also in the T5i, though it would make sense. We’re told that the 70D will have the same sensor. This is from a new source.

at least (cough!!) 80% of all rumors say the 70D will have a 18MP sensor.
the 20% who say it will have a 22 or 24 MP sensor are probably just wishing.

and why should canon produce the SL1 sensor for only one camera?
beside the next M there is a good chance canon will put it into the 70D.
