Below are the winners and runners-up in each category.

Each category winner will now be judged against each other to select the top 3 photographs from the contest.

How were the category winners selected?

A panel of 4 judges.
  • A high end wedding photographer
  • Technical photography wizard
  • Mixed Medium Photographer
  • Yours Truly

  • Each judge ranked each category 1st through 10th.
  • A 1st place showing was worth 10pts, a 2nd place showing was worth 9pts, and so on.
  • If there was a tie, the first tiebreaker was highest position on the 4 lists. The 2nd tie breaker was the lowest an image appeared on a list.

The next round will use 10 judges to select the winner and the two runners-up.

EOS Bodies / 7D Mark II for Photokina? [CR1]
« on: December 28, 2011, 06:14:12 PM »
7D Mark II I’m told along with others that a 7D Mark II will be one of the big items Canon shows at Photokina 2012 in Cologne, Germany.

I’m told the camera will be APS-C, even though there have been murmurs about it being APS-H.

B&H Deal on the 7D Speaking of the 7D, B&H has a deal on it kitted with the EF-S 18-135 IS for $1575 shipped (USA). (Buy)


EOS Bodies / 5D Mark III Sooner Than Later [CR2]
« on: December 27, 2011, 12:06:29 PM »
5D Mark III Announcement Barring another manufacturing problem in Asia, count on the 5D Mark III being announced around the end of March or early April 2012.

Availability will probably happen before the summer begins in 2012. No specs were given at this time. This is a very solid [CR2]

The NAB show is April 14-19 in Las Vegas.

Software & Accessories / Re: Tripod w/ Spiked Feet and Air Travel?

I travel with a duffle bag over a suitcase and the tripod always gets checked. Seems like a horribly awkward item to bring on an airplane. Though, I also don't want them to pay any attention to my Kiboko that is usually 15lbs overweight for carry-on. :)

As for your question, I am sure it would be a matter of the person you run into at the airport.


PowerShot Cameras / More Super G Series Talk
« on: December 26, 2011, 11:49:24 AM »
The Super G Valentin Sama of DSLR Magazine wrote on his personal blog that Canon is working on a “Super G Series” camera.

This falls in line with previous posts here and here.

I was surprised how many people agreed with me about Canon not needing a mirrorless camera, but instead a high end PowerShot. The people that disagreed made great points about Canon being involved in what appears to be an emerging segment that is here to stay.

EOS Bodies / More Noise Comparisons, C300 vs Red Scarlet
« on: December 24, 2011, 11:05:57 PM »
Bring on the noise It was inevitable, but now we have a comparison of the Canon EOS C300 & Red Scarlet when it comes to high ISO noise performance.

From Cinema5D

In all, it’s clear that the C300’s new sensor excels in low light situations, which will allow for whole new ways of filmmaking in dark zones, were much less artificial light can be used to accentuate something.

EOS Bodies / "In Development" Canon Cinema EOS 4K DSLR
« on: December 23, 2011, 11:43:07 PM »
What, When, Where? I receive little bits of information a fair bit about the “in development” 4K cinema EOS DSLR. Below are a few bits that seem possible.

Form Factor There are various prototypes and body types. It will most likely be a new form factor. Somewhere between the 5D Mark II and 1D X in size. There will be some new button placements as well.

Megapixels This will not be the monster megapixel camera from Canon.

Photokina 2012 Photokina 2012 is the goal for at least an announcement and functioning prototype. Canon does want to get it to market before the end of 2012.

Name The name for the camera hasn’t been selected yet, but it’s probably going to have its own model number. However, it won’t be the “mythical” “EOS 3D”.


Xmas Edition Magic Lantern So what’s new for users of the APS-C Canon DSLRs using Magic Lantern?

FPS controlEdit

  • You can lower the frame rate down to 4 fps at a shutter speed of 1/4 seconds, which gives you extreme low-light capabilities.
  • Overcranking doesn’t really work; the 60D hardly gets 35fps in 1080p. On the other hand, 500D and 50D can now record at 24p!

HDR videoEdit

  • For high-contrast scenes with not-so-fast moving subjects, you can get great shadow and highlight detail.
  • This feature is enabled on all cameras, but older models may have synchronization issues.

We are also posting a free HDR post-processing workflow for advanced users, based on Avisynth with InterFrame plugin, VirtualDub and enfuse. Check this discussion thread for details!

Tip: HDR and FPS control are available in Advanced mode – press the MENU button!

Software & Accessories / Re: PC or MAC
« on: December 21, 2011, 10:33:42 PM »
I switched to Mac a year ago and most of it has been fine.

There's one thing I miss a lot, and that's the start menu. I much prefer that to the dock.

Other that, Chrome and Lightroom work the same... except my hardware has a prettier exterior. :)

Interview with Canon A representative from Canon sat down for an interview to discuss the mirrorless camera possibilities for Canon.

A few of the key points are below.

  • Does a mirrorless camera really need interchangeable lenses?
  • Can we make a compact or DSLR that can beat the mirrorless cameras? (they believe they have it)
  • Higher sensitivity rather than high resolution (probably refers to quality over megapixels)

CR’s Take I don’t think Canon needs a sub $1000 mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses. I think they are more than capable of making a “G” series camera that is higher end than the G12, which would satisfy a majority of the people interested in a mirrorless camera.

If Canon went out and made a niche market full frame $3000 “photographers” mirrorless camera, I think they’d have something worth selling there. However, Canon just doesn’t strike me as a company that cares all that much about satisfying niches, they want to sell millions of cameras.

I think we’re going to see a new PowerShot line that is priced up there with Rebels. It’ll give them the segment that doesn’t want a DSLR, but wants image quality. As well as satisfying the desires of 5D Mark II shooters that want a point and shoot with great IQ.

I know LOTS of people disagree with me on this one. :)
