i have the cable version exact same handpiece and functionality
it works well however the only thing that bugs me alot is there is no on off switch so you have to take the batteries out when you stop using it. really stupid design IMO
Not sure on how much benefit the wireless vs cable version is though the cable version is alot cheaper

Thanks.

Does it not shutdown after a period of inactivity? The wireless version would be for studio shots, selfie's or group shots with me in 'em  :D

nope It doesn't just runs the batteries out, PITA! but its cheap and functionality is good the counter is super handy for bulb exposures. the only downside is the stupid have to take the batterys out thing
if you have an iphone and a camera with IR and want wireless look at this which I use now aswell

I do enjoy watching the arguments that erupt because somebody over analyzed a black pixel and therefore concluded that the 5D3 has the same DR as the Apple QuickTake, or that Nikon cameras have 250 more stops of DR than Canon cameras. Pretty funny stuff.

this made me really LOL :D nice one!

2915
I think it makes alot of sense
7D +17-55 f2.8 covers wide to standard
5D3 + 70-200 f2.8 covers standard to tele

no worry about changing lenses
they use the same batteries
as long as you are cool with carrying 2 bodies its actually a very nice way to shoot
I prefer to shoot with 2 bodies

I'm curious as to how the 5DmkIII will show the flaws of the 16-35?
Yeah My 5D2 didnt show any flaws I must have a good copy :P

2917
there you go another +1  :-*

2918
since she doesnt have a body yet and you dont have any really wide glass why not consider running with both formats get her a D800 and the 14-24 Nikkor and she can shoot wide and close, great for groups too and you can shoot over the top with the 85 or 135 canon and you get the best of both worlds at least then you can evaluate how each  brand works or doesnt for your style and business.

Only downside to this is different charges batteries and flashes are not interchangable

« on: March 12, 2012, 07:27:19 PM »
I look at it this way, what everyone is talking about at very small differences. Overall BOTH cameras are going to produce great images in the right hands and utter rubbish in the wrong hands. For me it boils down to this.

Even if the D800 is better it will be by a marginal technical amount that will more than likely not be noticable in images and definately not noticable in print.
With so much invested in canon glass (as with alot of other people on here) changing teams would be a silly haircut to take to change to Nikon.

Sure this round Nikon win the MP Bragging rights and some numerical theoretical DR bragging right. (How many people waste all this image quality and inbuilt DR by running 9 bracket exposures at 0.5 stop through a trash compactor like photomatix etc? Can people not see how the image quality is decimated by these programs FAR beyond the miniscule differences between a D800 sensor and a 5Dmk3 Sensor, DR is becoming a crutch. Ok overprocessing fans smite away again ;)  :-* )

This stuff while interesting to read about being technically minded does not mean that the differences between the cameras are going to be noticable or even measurable in real world work and deliverables.

Step back and look at the bigger picture, then go and take some enjoy the camera and the shoot, after all isnt that what most of us are here for anyway?

« on: March 12, 2012, 05:41:26 AM »
within 2 years compact cameras will be dead as phone cameras are already heaping the burial dirt on them now

but a pro build mirror less high MP APS-H that has a crop mode to APS-C and increased FPS in that mode will be killer
Yeah i know i say it a lot :D but i can dream can't I?

2921
To compete with Nikon's line up. Admit it, we were all expecting the 1dx and 5dmkiii to be at least 25MP, etc. Some people are fine with the 18MP from 1dx or the 22MP from 5dmkiii, I know but what about the rest of us who would like it?

And will it be in a crop or FF camera? E.g the 5dmkIV (wishful thinking and part fantasy)? (dont smite me, just an opinion/idea)
end of the year

maybe photokina
oh and it will be $4700 :P

Lenses / Re: Canon 50mm f1.2 lens - Your opinions???
« on: March 12, 2012, 05:34:13 AM »
For those who been there, done that…I would like to have your opinions on Canon 50mm f1.2 lens.

1. What make you choose f1.2 over f1.4?

                              OR

2. What make you choose f1.4 over f1.2?

I’m thinking upgrade my f1.4 to f1.2…..its worth it???

Thanks guys,
Dylan

I chose the 1.4 over the 1.2 for the following reasons

1.2 4 times the price! of the 1.4 (which is 4 times the price of the 1.8!)

the 1.4 is really a nice compact light size the 1.2 is a small watermelon but it does look so awesome nothing except the 85 1.2 can beat it there

I thought the 1.4 would be closer to the nikon 50 f1.4G unfortunately the nikon kills the canon :( its the same size too
(canon please make a 50 f1.4L built like the 100f2.8L macro) :P

If you have a 1.4 already I am not sure you will get a good return on investment with the 1.2 maybe see if a new 1.4 comes out with the next round of new lens announcements

Lenses / Re: Canon 16-35L II vs Tokina 16-35 vs Sigma 17-50 2.8 lenses
« on: March 12, 2012, 05:29:16 AM »
Hey all,

    Thanks for the replies! I really am leaning away from the 17-55 because it is an EF-S lens. I don't care for/like the prospect of getting a lens I would not be able to use on a ff camera when I get one, be it later this year, or 4 or 5 years from now. A good lens now will still be a good lens in the future if it is taken care of.

Gary W.

then the 16-35 f2.8 II is the best lens for you on a crop it will be super sharp corner to corner
