EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5D Mark 2 .... 250 euros up
« on: April 20, 2012, 10:48:30 AM »
i was ready to buy my second 5D Mark 2 (backup body) and just noticed that the price has raised from 1679 to 1929 at amazon.
i checked two weeks ago the last time.

and it´s not only amazon who raised the price.... it seems the 5D MK2 is still selling strong.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Why so much trust in DXO.

In the real world, selection bias and brand loyalty tend to be the dominant factors.  The whole point of repeatable tests is to determine, using set criteria, how things actually preform.  When just out and shooting people build a lot of bias into what they think of performance, often with 'this is newer/more expensive, so it must be better otherwise I would be a real fool to have paid so much more for it!' thrown in.

that does not explain how techradar and DXO come to different conclusions... given they both use the DXO testing method.

canon always kind of sucked at DXO test.. not?
i bet there is a nikon fanboy at DXO who manipulates the numbers. ;)

but who cares... i would not sell a hasselblad based on DXO tests. :)

Quote from:  DxO
Phone cameras necessarily have tiny image sensors that can't capture as much light as the bigger sensors on compact cameras or the even bigger sensors of full-frame SLR cameras. But for a given surface area of image sensor, mobile phone cameras actually do better.


so all canon has to do is taking a mobile phone sensor and blow it up to fullframe.... and they would rule DxO mark.

hell that is a great idea.... i will just start calculating how many MP we will have then.

afaik nikon has not much more to do with the D800 sensor then creating the read out.
so what are you talking about "nikon" sensor design?

i knew my phone makes better images then my DSLR.. i knew it!!!   ;)

i mean better per normalized sensor area... of course. ;)

now that this is known.. canon should start blowing up mobile phone sensors designs to FF size. no need for expensive gapless microlenses and other stuff.  ;D


ps: i would really like to see how mobile phones score in the DXO mark.
but they are not allowed to make their test public... whatever that means.

EOS Bodies / Re: Is this a picture of the new 70D
« on: April 19, 2012, 04:17:48 AM »

Yes I do believe the latter image to be the correct image of the new 70D

Has anyone used one yet?

i have a bridge to sell...

« on: April 19, 2012, 04:11:05 AM »

Will there be a Canon "response"? and when?

no response.. canon will stop making cameras....  ::)

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Nikon announces D3200 - 24 MP APS-C
« on: April 19, 2012, 04:05:39 AM »
the new nikon looks like a killers entry level camera with 24mp for under $700, yes the iso performance will probably be shocking but will people who buy even understand that.

It appears that even most reviewers don't understand it -- in the opposite sense: I've seen comparisons between the 5D3 and the D800 where the conclusion was that the D800 was significantly worse at higher ISOs; others noted that the difference went away when downsizing the D800 to 5D3 resolution.

Put together it sounds like the conclusions about the D800 being worse were drawn from 100% crops, i.e. comparing the same number of pixels, rather than, as would be necessary for a valid conclusion, the same sensor area. Sigh.

and why would a normal customer buy such a 36MP camera to begin with?
to have the same noise and same details on A3 prints that he has with a camera that produces more manageable files?

or no wait he buys it for extrem cropping of bird images... and then has to live with the noise.

nah.... if i would buy a D800 i KNOW i would use it for LOW ISO shots.
studio shots or landscape shots when i use a tripod.

nikon just announced a 24 MP aps-c camera.

nikon and canon have truly switched paradigmas in only 1 year....


http://www.dpreview.com/news/2012/04/19/Nikon-D3200-with-WiFi-Option

rumor is it has the A77 / NEX-7 sensor...  or a slight modification of that sensor.



ps: i would not have started this thread if others would post in the right forum categorys.
but i don´t search the EOS BODIES forum for nikon threads. so i thought there was no thread about the D3200 yet.

ω is Ω = omega. When it is in a word, we pronounce it like an o.
It has nothing to do with w.

it looks like an rotated 3.... and like "w" for wedding .... that´s why he choosed it.

blah....

So, I feel like handcuffed to a chair with a 5D3 in front of me. It looks at me with its big eye and tells me: “I’m not for you, buddy” … The wait is not over yet. Damn …

it´s dark and stormy here, that´s my excuse im not out shooting.. what´s your?

Everyone is doing Beta releases these days... here is a somewhat old, but still relevant, article


as long as people blindly preorder products... why should companys change their way of releasing stuff?

i don´t preorder anymore and i don´t buy new software or hardware that is not out in the wild for a few month. that served me well for example as intel released the sandy bridge mainboards (sata bug).

i don´t have the time or the nerve to fumble around with beta products an wait until major bugs are fixed.

of course that a product is out for say 4-6 month does not mean it´s perfect or bug free... but at least you have an overview over how well it works and major flaws should be exploited by then.

Is there any benefit to using the Adobe RGB profile with it's expanded color gamut as the ICC profile when I
print using my Canon Pro 9000 MKII?

that sounds as if you want to use Adobe RGB as a PRINTER profile.
as astro wrote, that is a NO GO.. don´t do it.

as advised use a matching profile for your printer and paper.
