My RAWs clearly show the 5Dmk2 edges the mk3 out in sharpness at iso 100

i havent posted high ISO ones however from my observations the "quality" of the noise on the mk3 is significantly better than the mk2 allowing you to imporve it significantly using good NR software
for this reason 12800 is useable and even 25600 can be cleaned up sufficently in post to achieve decent results
or leave the more grain like noise in the image for that more vintage feel.

I have no doubt at high iso the 5Dmk3 is great

Again I have no interest in jpg files out of the camera as they give a false representation of the facts
RAW comparisons are the only true indication but until final raw processing software is available its too hard to make definative calls on which is better.

EOS Bodies / Re: How about an app store for EOS cameras?
« on: April 10, 2012, 08:14:58 PM »
THe beauty of the app store not being in house is it allows the inovation of many more people that the host company dont have access too ordinarily. So if canon were in overall control but allowed people to submit their mods for review and implementation it would spawn a much more rapid inovation curve than we currently see out of designs. Unfortunately I cant see it being cheap :(

I would like to buy additional 1D features to add into my 5Dmk2 and 5Dmk3 though

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS C100 & C500 Coming? [CR1]
« on: April 10, 2012, 08:11:01 PM »
makes more sense to me I'm guessing the C500 is cheaper than the C300
I still dont really get the purpose of the cinema DSLR, producing these EF mount dedicated video cameras
designed to suit video ergonomically makes alot more sense, sure have vid on still cameras for when its needed but surely video dedicated guys must prefer to use something with a form factor designed more around their needs?

bummer sorry to hear it

check your home insurance contract quite often there are certain $ limits that can be used for miscelaneous items like the repairs for this you might be able to claim something

good luck

Nice, I quite like your style and agree I dont see any problems with the dynamic range in any of those shots

EOS Bodies / Re: 1D mk IV & 5D mk III or 1DX?
« on: April 10, 2012, 06:21:04 PM »
i'm going with option 1
great combo, I would love it if they brought out a gripless APS-H body though to partner with the 5Dmk3

Lenses / Re: Why is Canon so slow updating (legacy) lenses?
« on: April 10, 2012, 06:14:25 PM »
What seems odd is the 24IS and 28IS.  Why two lenses so similar,

probably because there was only some marginal design and manufacturing differences so it was easy to bring the 2 to market together looking at them there isn't a great deal of visual differences

I would have made sense to have done the 50mm first though since the 24mm 28mm is already covered by tons of great L glass

you mean to say add in firmware functions?

such as buy decent bracketing for the 5Dmk2
the ability to set the rate button on the mk 3 to be a bracketing selector or any other customisation

as long as the prices were reasonable ie similar to iphone apps $2 - $10

I would be all over that system

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: anyone have a 5Dmk3 and a kenko TC?
« on: April 10, 2012, 07:06:10 AM »
Can confirm the 5d mk3 and Kenko TC 1.4 pro 300 with 24-105mm work perfectly at 5.6

awesome news, so it looks like its a body by body issue not a firmware or design issue then :)

LOL, now he loves the 5D MK3 :)

ET

Of course, because he actually starting to LEARN how to use the camera.  What a F______ idiot.  still no reply to the email and he is still using all three custom functions to switch between AF modes, which is a ridiculously dumb solution when you can do it faster and easier with button customization (which I included in my email).

LOL I actually started reading about HOW he is getting around his complaints please for the sake of your blood pressure dont read it, or at least have soeone nearby ready to call 911 for you, but a hint is using C1 C2 and C3...
I didn't finish reading as i fell out of my chair after the first 2 sentences...

has this been through photomatix?
if so i would put that down as the cause, I think it has something to do with photomatix saving out 16 bit tiff files and it will do this.

I've also seen this happen if you change between programs with different working spaces like adobe rgb and srgb or prophoto rgb so make sure all you programs are set to have the same working colour space

they are the 2 main things I can think of at the moment where I have seen this happen before

(2) But, alas, folks like "wickedwombat" just prove my initial point.

sheesh ...its a funny vid c'mon hardly snarky.
Seriously mate you need to take yourself a tad less seriously have a laugh.

Maybe since the vid is aussie it doesn't translate that well

And if you went through most of my posts here you'll find i try to help out people as much as possible
I do like some fun though and I sincerely do appologise if I hurt your feelings no harm intended.

Lenses / Re: Canon 1.4x tele vs 1.4x II tele or Kenko
« on: April 10, 2012, 01:04:05 AM »
yeah me too I have been in email contact with kenko over this and they say they dont have a problem
someone else here reported their extension tube worked fine. It seems pretty hit and miss at the moment :(

2939
I posted over 50 raw files comparing the 5Dmk2 and mk3 after micro adjust calibration on half a dozen lenses
personally I found the 5Dmk2 files marginally sharper however this was pixel peeping at 200%, overall those shots were pretty damn close with the mk3 files displaying lessmoire than the mk 2 files.
comparing out of camera jpg is useless IMO you have to compare raw files

pity after all that adjusting work my camera still could not focus properly, hopefully its replacement will :D

here is the link to those comparisons

My Kenko 1.4x telplus pro 300 GDX teleconverter does not work with Canon 5D MkIII.  Actually, the only lens that works with Kenko is Canon 70-200 f/2.8 MkII.  Everything else, even Canon 135 f/2 which works with Canon teleconverter, just causes the camera to freeze up after one shutter click, requiring battery swap to unfreeze. 

My Pro-Optic extension tubes do work with 5D MkIII.

its interesting your 70-200 II worked mine didn't none of my lenses worked. all generated the 00 error and locked up the camera. only removing the battery would clear it.
