EOS Bodies / Re: DxOMark Sensor Performance: Nikon vs. Canon
« on: October 27, 2012, 08:10:02 PM »
Am I going to be shot for saying these things?

Depends, Do you lust after the D800 ?

Hahahahaha. No I dont lust D800 but if it does have 'better' IQ, then I want Canon to provide me that quality and more in their next 'release'...
But then Nikon will probably produce something even better and then Canon people will remain dissatisfied.
It is a never ending game. We can count on this...

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D or 5D Mk II

The GPS bashing is all good and well if you're photographing your cousin's birthday party or a baseball game once a week, but as someone shooting freelance editorial on the street with 1,000 frames per set, I appreciate the extra level of metadata allowing me to sort. It'll also make the camera fully compatible with social media mapping features that pull from similar data on smartphones to automatically tag locations.
1000 frames per set cries professional. Now I do not mean to insult anyone but social media cries snapshots taken by kids. And snapshots can be taken by a lesser camera. Sorry! Can't take them too seriously. Just my opinion.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. With the 6D, it looks like they've successfully Rebelized the xD line.
Except they have multiplied the price  ;D

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon 5D MkIII - Bulb Mode on screen timer

Ok I managed to get a hold of the manual during lunch and pages 48 and 172 mentioning Bulb modes and the top display so hopefully the damn thing shows the Exposure time elapsed on the top panel!
Ill take a closer look this evening    ::)   fingers crossed!
And page 172 it is  :D

Feel free to continue laughing with your Nikon fellow  ;D

Canon General / Re: Canon’s Q3 Profits Tumbled Down By 42%

The point is did they lose money from the camera sector or other areas too?

It seems though that their pricing wasn't that smart although this cannot be proved. We do not know how many more would have bought 5DMkIII if it started say 500$/euros less)

He will laugh back  ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: Is 22Mpx Really Enough?!!!
« on: October 26, 2012, 07:59:05 AM »
Well a few year ago when 1Ds was introduced 11Mpixes seemed enormous. The same later when the 16Mpix 1DsII and the 21Mpix 1DsIII. The pros always chose these cameras and many of them produced superb work! Now that a higher Mpix camera was introduced it just raised the "standard". They just forget how good a job was being done by these "old" pro cameras. Now when someone introduces a 45Mpix camera they will feel that 36Mpix is not adequate. It is ... a little ... ridiculous!

* They do specifically mention the camera focusses at -3EV, there is no mention like that for the 5dm3 that i could find but that may just be marketing hype to make it appear to stand out.

Last week an Canon-employee told and showed me  on charts that the 5D3 and 1DX are rated for -2EV so double the light.
I still prefer my 5Ds (II and III) Thank you.

EOS Bodies / Re: PhotoPlus Announcements?

I’ve also heard through the grapevine that Canon USA wasn’t all too happy with the purported Photoshop’d EOS-3 with a 46.1mp sensor articles that popped up not too long ago. That in itself is quite interesting, as why would they care about something that isn’t real?

Possibly because they're marketing machine is trying to convince the user base that 20MP class cameras are enough for everyone's needs?
That's interesting! If true they will now have to work really hard to improve their sensor manufacturing processes  ;D Of course this also means that Big Megapixel lovers will have to be patient, ... very patient ::)

Canon General / Re: Why you should take your camera to family Weddings
« on: October 25, 2012, 12:54:09 PM »
Personally, I would say the number 1 reason for missing that shot, is a relative stepping out into the aisle to get the shot with their iPhone/point n shoot/cheap dslr and standing right in your view.
In that case the pro could take a snap to show how a relative/friend has spoiled the picture. Otherwise it will seem that it is the pro's fault.

Making the best of the six month delay I figure I will put $10 or $20 in a jar each week and then when the upgrade comes out I'll get a 2.0 X III extender for my 500 and it will be almost "free."

Then compare the 5D3 with 500 + 2.0 X (1000 mm) vs my 7D with the 500 + 1.4 X (1120 mm) and see which one wins.
Well this is interesting! I do have a 2X but I miss a ... 500mm!
How many days must I do the same ?  :(  :(  :( (Yes, I can divide please don't answer!)
I think you need a bigger jar!
;D And I need to avoid buying anything else ...

Lenses / Re: A New EF 800 f/5.6L IS II? [CR2]
« on: October 24, 2012, 06:35:26 PM »

800mm f/4.0 would have a slightly smaller front element as the 1200mm f/5.6 but the physical length would be a good 6 inch shoter. Would weigh about 16.5kg.

Now the succeeding article is now CR1. Hmmmm...

The lens looks heavier than the girl behind it  ;D

Wait, canon is pulling the wool over everyone's eyes. When they start producing the large megapixel ff dslr, pros will start selling 5d mark iiis cheap. Then the price will go down encouraging those who buy the 6d to move up to the 5d ii, and rebel users to get the 6d, and there will be a major price drop on the rebels, X0d's, 6d's, 7d's, and 5d mark iii. Worst case scenario, you wait and the price doesn't drop and you find a used one.
Sure, and when they start producing the Gigapixel SLR the 5DMkIII will be sold for 10$  ;D  ;D  ;D
Seriously now, this is just an exaggeration to point out that we can always wait for something better and miss while we wait...

EOS Bodies / Re: What's a good camera?
« on: October 24, 2012, 11:21:40 AM »
I'd like to see a black and white camera.  Not monochrome, pure binary black and white.  Each pixel either on or off, nothing in between.  DxO Landscape Score = 1 and no argument about it.

I love images like this one:



Hmm wouldn't that have practically zero noise (as long as the "sensor" would be able to distinguish between black or white) ? In that case I imagine a DXO ISO noise score of say ... 100000  ;D  ;D  ;D
Now how this contributes to the final score ?  ;D
