EOS Bodies / Re: Canon's Next Full Frame Camera [CR2]
« on: July 16, 2012, 01:17:20 PM »

 this is a combination of a series of exposures using a method developed in consultation with the Cambridge Signal Processing Lab. I do consulting for a few camera review websites to develop testing methods and put this together for a project

DxO?   ;)  :D

the D600 seems to be BIT FOR BIT the better camera and the better deal.

2012 is sure not canons year. :(

EOS Bodies / Re: Mirrorless Update - APS-C? [CR2]

i guess that´s how the canon mirrorless will look.. more or less:

no honest i think it will resemble more a DSLR then a PEN or GF or a classic camera.

Then no one would buy it. The "classic" looks way better.

maybe im different then you.
i go out shooting with my camera i don´t take pictures of my camera.

if the ergonomics are ok, if the image quality is great i would even buy a camera made by ricoh  designers. :).

i had a few sigmas over thw years and i sold them all... do i need to say more about my experience with sigma?

I've read good reviews, but when I got one, it was a disappointment.

the current version cost around 1300 euro.. so can we expect the new one will cost 2600 euro?

Or, if the algorithm is not 2X but +1000 it will be around 2300 euro which is no good either  >:(

yep.... i have a few hobbys but photography is the only one where the gear gets more expensive each year (beside the normal rate of price increases).

to bad the photography world does not work like the computer world.
or we would have cheap FF cameras by now.

of course the bad thing for us photographers is that a FF sensor can not be shrinked so that more of them fit on a wafer. :)

na wie gut kann der herr klugscheißer wohl deutsch?
oder wollen wir uns in schwedisch unterhalten, spanisch hatte ich auch 3 jahre lang!

mal wieder ein typischer dämlicher amerikaner, der gerade mal seine eigene landesprache beherrscht?

warum schreibt die welt englisch?
weil die amis dank ihrem schulsystem ja nichts anderes beherrschen.


Lach, ja ich würde es auch mal ganz erfrischend finden, wenn die Amis einfach mal ihre Fresse halten würden.


Würde nicht nur ihrem EX-Presidenten "Afrika ist ein Staat" G.W. Bush gut zu Gesicht stehen.

Aber viele Amerikaner merken gar nicht wie ungebildet sie eigentlich sind.
Wer nichts von der Welt kennt oder über sie lernt, kann leicht denken er wäre etwas besonderes.

EOS Bodies / Re: should i wait for 70D? when will it be here by?
« on: June 15, 2012, 01:56:58 PM »
So I'm either buying a used 7D. a new 60D. or waiting for 70D. I want to get it with the 18-135 (i or ii) is the 70D just around the corner? I have plenty of gear to hold off but if the 70D is 6 months+ away then will go back to 7D vs 60D

it will be here at 12 january 2013 .. 12 o´clock. 

that´s what my glas orb is telling me...   ::)

Awesome....I better start my saving $$$ NOW. I guess $2500-$3000

the nikon costs 1600 euro.... so i guess canon will sell it for 2400 euro....  ::)

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: So Nikon D600 is real after all

If it's true... why not just call it 6D?

It's puzzling to turn a top APS-C into an entry-level FF while retaining the name. They're so different cameras.

because it is better to fix an error then repeat it. :)

they could just drop the 7D and call the new FF 6D, sure, but i was talking about this specific rumor.

as is wrote... for me it was an error from the beginning to call the camera 7D.

sure it could be a bit confusing first for those who know the original 7D was an APS-C camera....  but in the end the lineup would be straight and clear.

APS-C = xxxxD, xxxD xxD
Fullframe= xD

by the way:

Got two new, hot rumors. From reliable sources (can’t name them, can just confirm they are indeed reliable) is told that the EOS 70D (expected in September for Photokina) will move upmarket regarding features (note: I got a similar rumor at the end of May, but it was about the 7D2). Following the rumor, the EOS 70D should replace both the EOS 7D and the EOS 60D, becoming the top model of Canon’s APS-C line-up. An EOS 70D with more pro features, better construction and increased performance. That would mean that Canon is putting the x0D line-up under a new light, after having split the line with the 60D (which wasn’t really the follower of the EOS 50D) and the 7D (which, in some sense, took the X0D heritage).
But it’s getting even hotter. The EOS 7D Mark II (also expected for Photokina) is said (by my source) to be Canon’s rumoured entry-level full-frame camera!! It may sound somewhat strange that the next iteration of the 7D line will change the sensor type (bigger), but it is not entirely in the domain of absurdities. On the other hand, the 5D series has always been Canon’s full-frame line. If the 7D Mark II will be a FF camera, that would mean that Canon is introducing a new FF line-up, or that the 7D2 will be aggregated to the 5D line (sounds a little weird). Whatever, we only can wait, and conjecture.

Have a nice day (or night), wherever you are.

a 7D as entry level FF camera would make sense.
i always wondered why canon used "7D" as name for an APS-C camera.

it would avoid a "3D" modell name for the new entry level FF and split the lineup in APS-C (xxxxD, xxxD xxD) and FF models (xD)

3D would not fit because of the usual meaning of "3D" and you would think it sits between the 1D and 5D.
9D for the entry level FF would put it behind the 7D... and im not sure that is what canon wants.

so i have all that nice canon glas.
but when i want to buy a FF camera i have to spend 3500 euro or buy 4 year old technology for 1800 euro.

mhm..... don´t get me wrong but the nikon lineup looks better from day to day when the rumored specs and price is correct.

if i would buy my first DSLR today... im not sure it would be a canon.

i will wait for photokina and what canon will do.
i am not buying more glas right now as im not sure if i will stick to canon.
and that´s sad.... im a canon user since the 1980s.

the 5D MK3 offers me (your mileage may vary) nothing that would let me justify the price.

i really hope canon will come up with something that excites me.
and what excites me more then video or AF improvements is.... IMAGE QUALITY.

i prefer low ISO performance over high ISO performance.
i rarely shoot above ISO 1600 and i use a tripod whenever possible.

to be honest the D800 would be better for me then the 5D MK3. 
i don´t need such a high MP count.. but if you get such quality from the D800 sensor (something i did not believe) why not?
still i would prefer around 28MP and a bit more speed.

Canon General / future canon camera models
« on: June 08, 2012, 07:20:10 AM »
i was just thinking about the latest canon cameras and future cameras while walking with my dog.

i think it´s safe to say that the 2012 canon cameras are not that exciting when it comes to sensor technology.

it seems canon has decided to focus on the weak points (AF on the 5D MK3 for example) instead of improving what already is decent enough for 80% of all customers.

with the improved video and AF i wonder what the next generation will bring.
i mean can the AF be any better? noticeable better?
ok they can bring the 650D hybrid AF in the upper class bodys.

but to me it seems more and more difficult to enhance cameras enough to justify a new buy.
of course i speak from the view of an ambitious amateur (professionells will sure see this different).

for me the 5D MK3 is not such an exciting camera (i have the 5D MK2)
i do landscape, macro and studio stuff most of the time... so i don´t really need the better AF .
for sports i take my 7D because of the longer reach.

anyway.... my thoughts (hopes) are going in the direction that canon has improved everything around the sensor technology this time and in the next cycle they will focus/improve sensor technology. the 5D MK2 was a big step... not sure if we can see a huge jump in IQ these days.

but all i wish for my next canon camera is better low iso image quality.

what do you think/hope about future canon cameras?

In this case, there is always the option to just ignore threads like "Canon are you listening...?? NIKON D600".

I think in this case the best option would have been to post this thread on a more general photographic forum.

are you running for a mod job?

this is the third party forum and i clearly see his wish for such a product from canon... if you don´t want to read about nikon or have a nikonphobie.. don´t read this forum. 

I think a lot of the complainers are more into the toys, tech, comparing specs & reading charts. They need the higher ISO IQ and improved dynamic range to photograph the back of their lens cap and brick walls.

It's a shame how this forum has degraded so quickly, it used to be a place to share in a positive way.

oh please spare us that sermon..

if im going to buy a NEW camera i want the BEST i can get for my MONEY.. not something that is GOOD ENOUGH.

that´s human nature.

and im not some fanboy that does not see or say when nikon has a good/better product.

and the D600 looks like a great product on paper... we will see.

This site is for users interested in Canon equipment, not for people to spread the word about how good Nikon a camera in comparison to Canon's camera - especially one that is only rumoured.

well this site (especially the third party forum) is for what users are intersted in.. and suprise suprise that is maybe something different then you are interested in.   ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 70D & EOS 7D Mark II Speculation [CR1]

sounds like i don´t have to waste money on fancy gear this year.

i will not upgrade my crop bodys as long as there is no new (better) sensor in terms of DR and noise.

well so i can spend more money on vacations. :)

EOS Bodies / Re: How are dynamic range and sensor size related?
« on: May 08, 2012, 06:35:24 AM »
DR has more to do with the design of the sensor circuitry away from the pixel. The analogue to digital converters, for example. Interference in the circuit from other circuits or the camera. DR is all about quality.

nice platitude ... ;)...

if everything at the sensor/photosite level works optimal then the ADC is the factor that determines the achievable DR.

but i guess there is room for improvement on the sensor level.
for example the filters can be improved, the substrate can be improved, coatings can be improved, the fill factor can be improved, gate structure can be improved.

all things that affect quantum efficiency, well capacity.
