its interesting if it produces a RAW image, most in camera HDR to date have just been jpg only

some sites say Speedlite 600EX-RT has infrared wireless function too. So, can I use it with my 600D?I would certainly hope so, also so you can mix it up with existing collections of 580 s
I'm new to the world of flashes and transmitters and was thinking about grabbing the 600EX for the 5D Mark III, but mainly for the AF assist light. So I wanted to ask, do 3rd parties ever produce alternate AF assist lights? I've seen a few knock-offs of the ST-E2, but couldn't tell if they had AF assist or not.I have the Yongnuo ST-E2 copy which is better than the genuine its head can swivel
I'm assuming the Canon ST-E2 itself is not an option as the 61-point AF is bound to have points at different places from the pattern in that unit.
It's been suggested that creating a matrix of NIR LEDs will do the trick, is this comparable to a patterned beam made for the camera's AF?
If you're going to compare, you have to be fair:
* New body with better weather sealing
* New card slot (this is a real biggie for the pro market)
* Brand new nearly 1dx focus system with new tracking system and 5 double cross points! It should be better than the 1div, except in speed of motor drive.
* Nearly 1 stop better ISO (that puts it level with the d3s and virtually at the new d4, so it would seem)
* Slightly larger screen to fit the photo
* Expanded EC options
* 50% more FPS
* Microadjustment at both wide and zoom end of lenses
* New (if not as good as 1dx) metering system from 7d
* More shots per battery
* New battery grip with new buttons (I believe)
* 100% viewfinder
* Faster shutter & faster Xsync
* Electronic level
* Improved HDR / bracketing options
* Improved auto ISO
* Silent shooting
* Better video options including reduced moire (not my area so I don't know much)
* ... and I bet I forgot some
The only thing that **hasn't** changed much is the amount of MP and DR!
I honestly think that if Canon would have put another 4 MP in no one would be complaining but people have it in their heads that more MP is better and that's all they'll pay for. It's honestly crazy...
It's a miles, Miles, MILES better camera than the 5dii. Cameras aren't just about sensors y'know...
oh yeah the aussie team is really hitting their straps and coming together nicely there is some seriously good talent in the aussie side now and that last test series was wonderfull to watch especially since the ashes debacle as brian so kindly pointed out
It is only the winning you remember, I had 30 years of failure to forget
If canon gave me the new 1Dx or 2 and the latest superteles I would say anything they wanted me to as wellI'd like a see a few examples of real world situations where the 1DX's more advanced 100,000-pixel RGB Metering Sensor will provide an advantage over the 5DIII's older iFCL 63-Zone Dual Layer Metering Sensor . Say you are trying to track a bride walking down the aisle in a low light situation. I find it odd that no comparison threads seams to be discussing this and are instead all about FPS and weather proofing.
I expect we'll see those sorts of examples coming after both cameras are actually in the wild...
Only anecdotal, but didn't the interview of the sports photographer trying out the 1DX on racing cars say he was seeing improvements through the RGB pixel sensor?
Does anyone know what the total Buffer capacity will be on the 5DIII? I'm basically a landscape or otherwise 'very slow' action photographer and so wondering if a 5-15MB per second transfer will be sufficient in order to facilitate enjoyable RAW shooting.
I just got a delivery date from Amazon for the kit.Don't take that as a solid date, Amazon are known to over estimate the dates on their shipments to cover themselves!
"Canon EOS 5D Mark III 22.3 MP Full Frame CMOS Digital SLR Camera with EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM Lens"
Estimated arrival date: April 03, 2012
Kinda disappointed - plus that's with next day delivery as well.
I have to say, I'm not overly impressed with Westfall's interview.ditto there is always so much spin and or dodging the real questions people want answered whenever he says anything
I found his response to the question about high ISO performance with RAW files more than a bit unsatisfying:
"These figures are not being disclosed, but of course they will be lower than the noise reduction achieved with in-camera JPEGs and EOS Movies."
It sounds like the camera has a great autofocus system and I know that's what most 5D II people wanted, but as a 7D owner hoping for improvements in sensor technology, his comments aren't giving me a lot of confidence.
i gave you an applaud for having a low tolerance for stupidity
I always give you an applaud just because you live in the land of the sun and keep a sense of humour when you lose the ashes
LOL thanks! did we lose the last ashes? and land of the sun its a heat wave here its been high 30's low 40's the last few days and thats Celcius for all the confused emperial types out there
you must be happy to know you guys beat us hands down recently - as if it was like taking a stroll in the park
The country i live in cricket is a religion
