EOS Bodies / Re: Can someone debunk this Peter Lik picture... PLEASE!!!
« on: January 31, 2012, 07:18:13 AM »
good point!

instead of saying "i pointed my lens at the moon, released the shutterr and bang.... i got this great image". he could be a bit more "honest" in how he "produced" this image.

exactly!

i can produce all kind of great images in post. fantastic landscapes never seen before.

but he makes it sound like it´s pure photographic excellence.
and he does it with purpose i think.

there is no word about doing heavy postprocessing on the image, blending two images etc. in the text below the image.

every serious landscape photograph will write that he used a ND filter to hold back the sky or uses image blending to get details in the sky. but this guy....

The desert silence was stunning, my pulse raced, I could hear the blood running through my veins. Then, I saw the horizon starting to glow. The golden sphere slowly rose in front of me. I was totally stunned. I couldn't believe it. So connected to this lunar giant that I was trembling. Such an impact on my life. I pressed the shutter, a feeling I'll never forget. The moon, tree, and earth.

Not true!  You can with enough MP shoot the moon at 300mm all you need is the crop tool and magnify!  You're making an assumption that no post processing has been done, and of course if that was the case you'd be right.

why 300mm.. lets say 50mm.   ;D

of course he could have cropped out the hell of the 5D image (not MK2 i guess). likely? i think not.

Nothing hugely complicated about this shot to debunk

 ::)

the size of the moon is just exaggerated by the atmospheric conditions and the tree.

the size of the moon is more or less the same. it only depends on the distance earth <-> moon.

the moon does not suddenly jumps closer to the earth when it´s near the horizon.
it´s an optical illusion that makes the moon APPEAR bigger to us humans and has nothing do to with the atmosphere. that´s 5 grade ;)

Re 800mm 2.8, likely a 400 2.8 with an offbrand tc?

again physics is your enemy....
800mm will not produce a moon that big.
as was written before you need around 2500mm to fill a fullframe sensor with the moon.

Why bother to try to debunk the image at all? 


they have lied to you so often that you don´t care anymore if someone is telling the truth or not... that is what you are saying?

@Eye-Broccoli, @dr croubie, @Harley, @Narcolepsy, @Canon-F-1, @7enderbender:
Perhaps some traditionalists don't realize that the Vari-angle screen can remain flush against the body without ever even once being swung out.

dosn´t change a thing that i have 4 cameras with a flip screen that are defect because of the LCD.

I broke the flip screen on a Fuji s9600 twice - normal use, no trauma - just stopped working...

same here.
 
i had 4 cameras with a flip/swivel screen and in the end they all are defective because of the screen. so my guess is the flip screens are somewhat problematic.

Well done, indeed.  You two are about the 56th and 57th, respectively, to post about 'discovering' this on CR alone.

there are more intelligent people out there then you would think.....   ;)

im waiting too...

either for a new 400mm f5.6 with IS or a new 100-400mm.

i really don´t like the current 100-400 and it´s push/pull design.
my father has one and it´s by far the lens that attracts the most dirt.

« on: January 29, 2012, 09:03:01 AM »
well aside fom the article .. i also would like to know how much profit they make from a D4 or 1D X.

of course you have to take R&D into account but just for fun i would like to know how much is manufacturing cost and what is profit.

With the possible (hopeful) exception of an EF-s 30-ish prime, it's pretty clear that anything Canon releases to "replace" the old primes will be a zoom.

i doubt that.....

With all the fast (fps) cameras out there right now (10 fps, 24Mpix NEX-7, etc.) it would be unacceptable for Canon to release a lowish Mpix camera (22 Mpix) and a low fps rate...

sorry im not up to date with NEX models but isn´t that 3,7 FPS continuous shooting?

edit: just checked...

Quote
The NEX-7 has two continuous drive modes, labelled 'Continuous Shooting' and 'Speed Priority Continuous'. The latter runs at a headline-grabbing 10 frames per second, although with focus fixed at the start of a burst and no live view feed. Meanwhile 'Continuous' runs at highly respectable speeds (reaching a maximum of 3.7fps if you fix focus manually) while still providing live view between frames - the fluidity of which is greatly improved by using the electronic front curtain shutter.

so you are the usual "PR victim" it seems ;)
