Let take CRs site and see how many members using EOS-M, or should I say happy with AF.


LOL.. well lets go to a ferrari meeting and look how many are happy with a VW golf.

people here are in no way representative for an average customer, you should have learned that by now.  ;)

Where can I get the data showing Canon EOS-M is "top 5 of the most sold mirrorless cameras. BNC ranking = 9.2% market share."?


well BNC ranking i guess?  :P

I see alot of this, but Canon EOS-M is no where to be found.

EOS M was for some time in the top 5 of the most sold mirrorless cameras


when i remember right it was reported in oktober 2012, that the EOS-M was on third spot in japan.

ps: the EOS M was announced on 23. july 2012... so don´t wonder that it does not show up in a july 2012 ranking.

Do they work with wireless triggers like Pocket Wizards?

of course you can trigger them wireless.
but you can not manualy control the YN-560 over radio.

they are cheap and when you don´t mind to walk to your flash every time you have to adjust them, they are fine.

but when i invest in a YN-622C or a phottix odin for example, i want a flash unit i can control from my camera.
so i sold my YN-560 and bought a few YN-568EX in addition to my original canon speedlights.

Also can we adjust the flash (more than one flash units) from the camera menu, if we use the wireless triggers

as i wrote about above.. yes you can.
with the right flash units.

with the youngnou 568EX or 565EX it will work.
good is the YN-568EX, as you would have HSS support.

I noticed these in a local store the other day. Not sure how good they are:
[

they are identical to the older 7600 models, just the software has changed.

it´s slow and IQ is not that good.
it only reaches half the resolution it claims to have.

you have to scan at the very slow 7200ppi mode to get roughly 3500ppi.
and slow means 10+ minutes!

at maximum quality, with dust removal, you are happy to scan 5 pics per hour!

there is not really much choice anymore if you want a good scanner.
many companys who have produced scanner in the past are gone or have stopped producing scanners.

flatbed.... epson v700 or v750 comes to my mind.

you want to develop BW film and scan these or scan negatives?

i once had a nikon coolscan 5000 for negatives.
i am not really up to date anymore but i heard it´s still hard if not impossible to beat.
thought they are not produced anymore, but you can find them on ebay.

sure they are pricey.. but you want good scans.. right?

most flatbed scanners, except for the top of the line models like the V700, are not good for scanning slides or negatives. in my opinion at least.
but as always it depends on the standards you set.

i sure would stay away from 200 euro flatbed scanner for scanning negatives or slides.

if i had to buy a scanner today i would buy the epson V700 or V750.

if the v700 is to expensive, the V600.
but it´s film scanning is not as good.

Another option is to download the latest Adobe DNG Converter.

Lenses / Re: EF 100-400 Replacement in 2013? [CR2]
« on: April 29, 2013, 09:16:35 AM »
I just can't see this lens coming out before the hugely delayed 200-400/560.

based on what?

why should they delay one lens only because they have problems with another?

the 100-400mm will sure be sold more often then the 200-400mm.
the 100-400mm is a more attractive lens (money wise) for many photographer.

i see no reason, except in case they share the same production problems, that canon will not just release the lens when it is ready.

...could be a marketing nightmare selling expensive zooms coming out at the same time (approx) with overlapping focal lengths..

well the 200-400mm will cost at least 8000 euro (10000 euro more likely)... so that will not much of a problem i think.

Quote from: Etienne
I think it will sell very well if it is under $2500.

lets hope so.

I bought the cheapest ones a few years ago, and they seemed alright. Was just wondering if these cheap ones with electrical contacts actually work:)

read reviews on amazon.

they work.. and sometimes they don´t if you stack them.
a friend has cheap ones that bend so much when he stacks all three, one pin will loose contact.
or better say the pins are to short to begin with.
 
it´s just contacts.. no electronics.
but some cheap chinese companys can even mess up that.   ::)

i can only speak from my own experience and my kenko tubes sit tight and work flawless.
i have no complains.

I would also look into getting a few YN-560 IIIs in the future instead of a 430 ex II. They're cheap, manual units only but trust me manual is the way to go. You can still use your 580 for your ETTL needs. The YN-560 III has a built in radio receiver too and they work as optical slaves too (something the 430s lack). Also the buttons are nice and big which makes changing the power or zoom head a breeze. The 430 requires some fiddling about with thumbnails.

but can you adjust them with the YN-622C over radio?

if not... they are not the best for wireless flash if you want to control you flash units from the camera.

for example you can´t control the YN-560-II from your camera menu with the YN-622C.
so you have to walk to the flash units every time you make an adjustment.
the YN 560-II has only on hot shoe pin so there is no path for that info.

i think to make the wireless adjustments work (via YN-622C), the flash has to support ETTL... even when you choose to use the flash in manual mode. or at least it has to have the hot shoe PINS used for ETTL.

so correct me if im wrong but the radio in the YN560-III only works with the RF-602 and RF-603 units.

you'd be better using the 430 as the master...

yeah that would really suprise me....  ::)

get the Kenko DG extention tubes.

you buy these tubes once.
no reason to buy the cheapest stuff and have wobbling tubes or tubes that have issues with the electronic contacts.

great news.... now we only have to know if the price will double or triple.

also.. what design are the prototypes... push pull?
should be not so hard to figure out if the sources are valid.

when you ask such a question you don´t need a new camera.

if you would need a new camera you HAD to buy a existing camera.

so as you obviously have time to decide.. wait for the 7D MK2 and make a decision after you know the facts.
