EOS Bodies / Re: is the 40D still a good one for 400$
« on: April 05, 2012, 04:54:06 AM »
i would suggest spend a little more and go for a 5D classic over a 40D they must be down to around $700 ish now

It's because I'm a bogan.  And I briefly lived in Logan, Queensland (the bogan capital of Australia).  I was a proud "Logan Bogan".

we need pics of your mullet as proof STAT! :o

I cant imagine a 300-800 Sigma as a walkabout :D

don't lie if canon made it you would be rocking it for sure :P

I lost interest when he said out of camera jpg comparison i'm afraid.
pretty meaningless IMO especially when you see how much over the top NR is applied in camera

are you making sure you are formating the cards in camera?
SD allow you to do a low level format. not sure why the option isnt available for the CF
tried both CF and or SD?

translation for americans Bogan = Redneck

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D III error 80 and failure to release shutter
« on: April 04, 2012, 11:09:53 PM »
i've only used genuine canon batteries in mine so far
if I put the kenko TC on the camera the 00 error comes up and wont clear when i put any lens on until the battery is removed and replaced
kenko say their testing show their stuff works fine on the mk3
I'm taking mine back again this arvo, I just have to wait in the que for a replacement

mediocre images.

again far too generous

I tried to buy a lens and they wouldn't sell to me

Canon EF Prime Lenses / Re: Canon EF 50MM 1.2L
« on: April 04, 2012, 09:49:49 PM »
i'll dig out some shots, the sweet 35 is sooo much nicer to use and the 35mm focal length is handy too
it has the manual aperture ring at the front which is better than those silly drop in aperture discs.
only annoying thing about it is no AF confirm chip so exif reports 50mm it would be nice if it just had an AF confirm chip like the edmika adaptors for FD lenses that at least report correct focal length max aperture and gave AF confirmation.

Get the 16-35 instead.

I am considering this...

Do you think it's worth the extra $?

Have you used both the 17-40 and 16-35?

absolutely! make sure its the 16-35 mk2 though
this lens wide open is usefull for so much more than boring ol landscapes
if you can afford the different you wont regret it
bear in mind the 82mm filter size too makes filter cost more spendy and you have to get the ultra slim versions to avoid vignette issues

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D Mark III AEB/HDR Question????
« on: April 04, 2012, 08:54:31 PM »
if you have an iphone and want to do unlimited HDR exposures on the 5Dmk2 try this
it works really well. much much cheaper than a promote



The guy generally ticks me off for his blatant and rather constant bias.

not to mention him stating many things as absolute fact that are just plain wrong
