The guy doesn't want to share his techniques, and we'll grant him his wishes. Any links to resources that give a tutorial to achieve that 16:9, cinematic feel to street photos?
The D800 and D800E are swell for people shooting only one thing at a time very carefully, while the 5D Mark III is for most people who have more than one kind of thing to shoot. Got Aspergers or live on a tripod? Are you an engineer, programmer or IT professional? Get the D800E. Are you a photographer, artist, musician, have a family or appreciate a well-thought out product that moves as fast as you do? Get the 5D Mark III.
The D800E and D800 might be better if you are a pixel-counting computer hobbyist who enjoys poring over details in software all day, but as someone who needs to crank-out photos as opposed to an IT professional, the 5D Mark III is the clear winner today, for me.
Asking whats the point of 36mp is kinda absurd;
So u're saying that If they can provide great high iso performance when downsized to their main competitor size AND still retain greater detail & DR fullsized at anything below 1600 -plus- offering them 500$ cheaper doesnt make sense. Seriously?
Actually thats whats wrong with DPR forums, its not the nikon trolls & the pissed Canon users, its the thickheaded cheerleaders that are pathetic...Ah, I knew a topic like this would attract more replies from Nikon fans than Canon, just like what happens in the Canon forum at DPR, which has now become unusable because more Nikon fanboys post on the Canon forums than Canon owners . I'm especially wary of member #s here higher than my own (read: recent registrants ).
First of all, what is the point of 36MP if you have to downsize it to 22MP to get so-called "equivalent" high ISO noise IQ? This is why even DPR, rightly or wrongly, tests 100% crops from different MP cameras at its native resolution, and if you ask DPR they say that this is because "they don't do printer tests" (IOW, for them, it is silly to normalize to a common output). Most ironically, they actually now do printer tests . And thus, as early as now, I would say that the eventual DPR review would also show the same result as that on the article cited in the 1st post of this thread.
So again, those justifying the argument that "it's equivalent when downsized" should be called out, because then what about that other ability those other defenders claim 36MP allows them to do: crop and resize. Really, all their shots need to be downsized and cropped after* it has been downsized to 22MP to make it look good against its closest perceived competitor? I find that funny as a Nikon owner.
but in my opinion most hobbits don't really need a 5DIII.
