Third Party Manufacturers / Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di VC USD Hands-On
« on: November 28, 2012, 04:38:52 PM »

The new Tamron 70-200!

A lot of people have been eager to hear and see how good the new Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 VC lens is. Coming in at a mere $1499 compared to $2099 for the Canon version, it has a chance to sell well for Tamron if it can at least be close to the highly regarded Canon.


Photo News had a chance to play with one and have come away pretty positive about the Tamron. There are lots of pictures and thoughts about build, the AF and optical performance of the lens.


From Photo News


The Tamron 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD brings Tamron’s legendary optical performance into the 21st century with the addition of USD and VC. The autofocus is fast with the addition of USD, the VC is effective , and the image quality is what we’re used to from this legend. Tamron has fixed a few quirks of the older version and we’d feel comfortable taking this lens on any job or just a walk in the park. The deciding factor for this lens will be the price point.


The Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 Di VC USD is due to start shipping on November 30, 2012.

EOS Bodies - For Video / The First Canon EOS 6D Video Footage
« on: November 28, 2012, 11:11:21 AM »
From a Preproduction Camera
The first video footage from Johnnie Behiri from the soon to be available worldwide Canon EOS 6D. It’s noted that this is from a preproduction camera and improvements may be seen with the released camera.

Strengths and weaknesses noticed by Mr Behiri.

  • Camera strengths:
  • Full frame sensor
  • Clean high ISO in video mode (1250 is very mush usable).
  • Manual audio adjusting
  • PAL/NTSC

Camera weakness:

  • Severe moire
  • Soft image
  • No headphone socket
  • No audio through HDMI while recording (for monitoring audio on new EVF’s)
  • No clean HDMI output
Checkout the footage yourself and see what you think.

From Magic Lantern
A busy week for the folks at Magic Lantern. First they hack the EOS-M, now they have made available the alpha 3 version of the 5D Mark III firmware.

The following feature detail is from a1ex from the Magic Lantern team
The most important change is a card test executed at startup. My 16GB (Kingston 266x) card has problems, and I’m trying to diagnose the issue: maybe it’s just my card, or maybe it’s related to this. If the test fails on your camera, please report.

There are also a few handy tweaks:

  • Histogram and waveform moved to bottom
  • New experimental display for focus peaking (extreme sharpness)
  • 16:9 bars for anamorphic preview
  • Focus box moves faster (not yet customizable)
  • After taking a picture and pressing Zoom In right away, you can scroll through pictures
  • Saturation boost when adjusting white balance
  • Warnings for bad settings (e.g. if you set picture quality to JPEG instead of RAW by mistake)
  • Dim the red LED while recording (make it less distracting)

Canon General / A Lion Eats an EOS 5D Mark II & EF 16-35 f/2.8L II
« on: November 27, 2012, 11:48:09 AM »
haha!
When I was in Kenya, we had an incident at Lake Nakuru with a baboon entering our vehicle and scaring the you-know-what out of me. He was sitting on my 5D Mark II, but he didn’t eat it. Instead, he stole our cookies and snacks and bolted. If you know my friend and travel companion Ethan Meleg, you’d know taking his cookies is about the worst thing you can do to him.

FYI: Don’t leave car doors open at Lake Nakuru.

Lion eating a 5D Mark II & 16-35 f/2.8L II
It turns out Ed Hetherington had the same sort of thing happen and sacrificed his Canon EOS 5D Mark II and EF 16-35 f/2.8L II for some fun photographs. The good and bad news? The lens lived, but the camera is touch and go.

Ed Writes:

I brought a remote control and a small stand to Zimbabwe so that I could capture some animal images from a unique “on the ground perspective”. I used the setup for some images of elephants and African wild dogs and most animals ignored the camera after or at most gave it a quick glance.
