EOS Bodies / Re: The new 5D Mark III ?!?! PICS!
« on: February 27, 2012, 07:59:05 AM »
It's on great authority that March 2 is the announcement date. Unless, they decide to out it tonight because everyone has seen it already.

This happened with the 7D launch, we had pretty much everything out. However, they still held it to the planned release date and added "as anticipated Canon is pleased to announce" (or something like that) to the beginning of the press release.

I was 90% sure it was going to be 5D Mark III, but I wasn't saying anything until it was 100%.

I would have liked in the review to see the shallowest DOF this camera can achieve. Everything you showed didn't isolate anything. My biggest gripe is the slow lens, not size or price.

My next issue would be low light shooting. I would hope that teh larger sensor would help, but then back to the slow lens, I am hesistant to test with my wallet.

However, what you did show looked great.

I want to do some portrait headshots with the G1 X, that'll get done this week and I'll update the review. I'll also do some real low light stuff. I hate to just show "test" photos.

Two things: you didn't mention that it doesn't have as close-focusing a macro mode as the G12. Of course, one wouldn't expect this in a large sensor camera.
Also, you cane switch to a 3:2 format in the Function menu.
Otherwise, a fine succinct review.

Macro... I never shoot it, but that will be mentioned as I update the review over the next couple of weeks.

The 3:2 setting in the menu crops the screen to the new ratio, however you still get a 4:3 jpg and RAW file. The RAW file has the 3:2 crop marks and auto crops in DPP.

The EF 24 f/1.4L II

I use 2 crops, the APS-H and full frame... I think it works perfectly on both for my shooting style.

It's sharp, fringe resistent, has a pleasing vignette wide open on full frame and has been super reliable.


PowerShot / Quick & Dirty Review: Canon PowerShot G1 X

Review! I have given my initial impressions of Canon’s new PowerShot G1 X in a quick review of the camera.

Spoiler alert…. I like it.

I have enjoyed my first day or so with the camera. I understand some of the critical points about the camera, others I don’t. I don’t understand why it’s knocked for being too big, I think the size is just about perfect.

I know lots of people wanted an APS-C “G” camera for $299. For those people, you’re going to have to wait a little while longer. I will say I don’t feel ripped off at $800, and I definitely wouldn’t when the camera gets down to the $650-$700 range.

EOS Bodies / Canon 5D Mark II Price Drops March 4, 2012
« on: February 26, 2012, 09:10:12 AM »
Pay less! The 5D Mark II will see price drops starting on March 4, 2012.

Waiting to get confirmation of what the drop will be, but it may get back down to the Christmas pricing of $1999.

EOS Bodies / Re: *UPDATE* The Next 5D on March 2, 2012 [CR3]
« on: February 26, 2012, 07:32:33 AM »
Back and forth between February 28 and March 2. Both dates might be good, but I have 100% confirmed the next 5D for March 2. I'll spend today finding out what, if anything is February 28.


Lenses / Patent: Canon EF 35 f/2 IS
« on: February 24, 2012, 06:33:46 PM »
Canon EF 35 f/2 IS Patent The release of the 24 f/2.8 IS & 28 f/2.8 IS lenses brought a lot of questions wondering where the replacement 35 f/2 was. All 3 have shown up in the same patent, so that could mean a 35 f/2 IS is on the way.

Patent Info

  • Patent Publication No. 2012-37691
  • 2012.2.23 Release Date
  • 2010.8.6 filing date

Site Information / Re: Record number of members online

The forum has become busy, it's been great. Our moderation log is so bare. I appreciate the civility of the people here, it's great.

The forum will be moving to a dedicated server soon, the 5D3 stuff from today killed the site for a bit. I take it as a compliment!


Lenses / New Lenses Coming [CR3]
« on: February 22, 2012, 03:01:55 PM »
New Lenses Coming The announcement dates for the following lenses haven’t been confirmed. However, they will be coming sooner rather than later.

EF-S 18-135 II This lens will have a silent autofocus motor geared to video. It will arrive with the new Rebel T4i. This has shown up in a US retailer inventory system. No price for the kit with the T4i.

EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4X This highly anticipated lens will be officially announced shortly. The price will most likely be $10,999 USD.

EF 40 f/2.8 Pancake I think it’ll be EF, but a 40 f/2.8 Pancake lens is coming. Expect it to be announced either with the 5D or shortly after.

EOS Bodies / March 2, 2012 The Day for an Announcement?
« on: February 22, 2012, 08:03:50 AM »
March 2, 2012 We and others (again) are getting lots of hints that NDA’s will expire on March 2, 2012 and an announcement of a camera body will take place.

It will be a 5D type camera and the same specs as before keep coming up. 22mp, 61AF points, full frame, 6.9fps and all that.

If March 2, 2012 is true, we’ll get confirmation very shortly. February 28, 2012 still gets a few mentions, so perhaps something else may be announced on that date.

EOS Bodies / Canon EOS-1D X Delayed Until April/May?
« on: February 22, 2012, 07:55:34 AM »
Not shocking We’ve heard along with others that the Canon EOS-1D X may be delayed until April or May, 2012.

I don’t think anyone is too shocked by that, as I think there is a lot of software tweaking going on with the camera. I have yet to hear any issues with manufacturing.

The camera has also disappeared on some store web sites when you search for it.

A patent showing  an 18-45 f/3.5-5.6 kit lens for an APS-C sensored mirrorless camera has appeared. That would be a 29mm-70mm lens when crop is factored in.
