The 60DA came totally from the left field. No hype, no precursory hints, just wham, here it is! Then again, I suppose it's for a niche enough demographic that the general public won't care much about it.yes this is an intersting development because if they have sorted out the low and high iso noise of that sensor it could be an interesting sign of things to come from other high density sensors
I am rather curious when it said "Enhanced noise reduction on the EOS 60Da sensor offers photographers the ability to experiment with the wide array of ISO settings"... does that mean they tweaked the sensor so it has better sensitivity than a 60D or is that just the same old sensor with different IR glass/microlens filters and software?
I'll have to post a picture I took last week of a Koala Bear with my 300mm F/4 with Canon 1.4x (5Dm2) to see how they compare.
That's some spot on focus right there! I could've tried that shot 20 times with my T1i and unless I got incredibly lucky, would never have walked away with a photo so sharp and clean. Time for some new glass I guess (Ignoring my serious 5d mark iii lust)
Anyways just out of curiosity, was body was this on? And were you using AI Servo? Great shot btw
You have to figure 1/2 of the "duds" probably aren't actually duds. Too many people have taken a handful of snapshots (of things like the lamp in their living room) looked at the pictures on the back of the screen, and then instead of experimenting they hop online and start a thread about how disappointed they are. There are pages and pages of settings ,people just need to read the manual and use them before rushing to judgement.
From the week I have had with the 5Dmk3 I can safely say I feel the sensor is fantastic. At narrow apertures and shooting with strobes the images are razor sharp.wicked, what lenses, apertures, focus points and shooting mode are you using? They all work together but they are very specific in application. Never use servo with big glass, use spot af primarily for static subjects, use spot af for most everything for things moving rapidly use focus with assist points. You prob know all that but i just dont get how you are experiencing this other than you need to micro adjust your lenses to the body or that you possibly have a bad copy, electronics aren't perfect, some get thru to the consumers even when tested in factory to be working properly. I hope you get things worked out because with what i have been getting in testing is excellent. I dont have any gigs at the moment so dont expect to see samples at this time.
open up that aperture and shoot ambient light on my copy and it all goes to hell. My copy definately has a nutty AF, i am glad many others are reporting joy with theirs so I'll see if I can get another copy and give it a whirl.
I'd rather have the 5Dmk2 AF over the AF on my copy of the 5Dmk3 (at least I can rely on the center point of on that camer!)
I'm a bit disapointed, taking it back today I hope I can get a replacement within a week sinc ei'm going overseas and would like to use the mk3
