Software & Accessories / Re: How Long Does Your CF Cards Last...
« on: July 30, 2013, 10:06:12 AM »
My first SANDISK cards (2  8GB Extreme III cards ) were in the bag that was stolen. Now I have 3 32GB cards. I have no problem with them and I do not intend to stop using them as long as they are OK...

Much bigger buffer, AF linked th spot- metering.
2 fast CF-slots would be fine too.
+1 These are trivial to implement in 5DIV since the technology exists now. I agree 100%

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 70D a New Benchmark in ISO Performance?
« on: July 30, 2013, 08:42:50 AM »
the 5D3 does have a dedicated AF processor, like the 7D and the 1Dx. thats why these cameras have superior AF.

if you expand the AF section, about half way down:

Achieving this speed and accuracy in the AF algorithm requires a large amount of focus data to be processed quickly. This has been done by the use of distributed processing where both a dedicated AF processor and a camera CPU process data. The dedicated AF processor is four times faster than the one found in the EOS-1D Mark IV.

'a camera CPU' must refer to the sole DIGIC5+.
Thanks for the link. Really interesting info although some of it seems , let's say: a little "optimistic"

The camera also features a robust dust-proof and drip-proof construction, where body panels interlock rather than adjoin, and all seams, buttons and dials are provided with secure rubber sealing. The protection provided by the design and sealing is equivalent to that of the EOS-1N film camera; the weather-sealing standard by which other professional cameras were judged.

Lenses / Re: Sigma 24-70 f/2 OS HSM Coming? [CR1]

I do not believe they will make a FF 24-70 f/2 lens. I mean technically they can but then how will it weigh and how big will it be?
It would be silly to use such a lens.

84.  DxOMark Scores. 

Wait, did I mention that already?  ::)
We should propose to DXO to be renamed to DRO   ;D

Q: What time is it in Stockholm?

Now that caught me off guard and made me burst into laughing  ;D  ;D  ;D

Lenses / Re: What's the Difference: 1.4X EF Extender 2 Vs. 3
« on: July 24, 2013, 10:37:38 AM »
I'm pretty happy with my 2X III when used with the 300 F2.8 II.

6D  300 X2  1600th  F10  ISO 1600  This is a pretty heavy crop shot at minimum focus distance which appears to be one of the advantages of the 2X.  I have no complaints about focus speed but am not using it for BIF.

Hey! It is obvious that you are using it for IIF (Insects In Flight)  ;D  ;D  ;D

47. People who think the 50L, or the 135 f2 etc is the answer to everybody's question.
Or 70-200 2.8L IS II  ;D  (No number has been wasted for that comment  ;D  )

Or users who say there is no visible difference between f/2.8 and f/4. :P
... and no difference in the weight and size (especially for trips with weight limitations)

Lenses / Re: What's your oldest Canon EF lens?
« on: July 22, 2013, 01:55:36 PM »
50mm 1.8 I bought new in 1984 with my "Olympic Edition" AE-1 Program.  Still have the camera too ;)
OP's question was about EF lenses. The lens you mention is obviously FD.

However, you reminded me of the days that I was (ignorant and) about ready for my first SLR. It was 1981 and I was thinking Canon A-1 when the salesman talked me into getting Konica Autoreflex TC. However, when I lost (literally) a Sigma 70-210 a friend talked me into changing system in general (I only had the Konica with a 40mm 1.8). So I got EOS 620 with 35-105 f/3.5-4.5 100-300 5.6 and 420EZ.

It would make sense to be a 39Mpixel body for a 4x4 pixel binning. Even a 5x5 binning corresponds to a ~61Mpixel body!

I knew I should have purchased a 1TB CF card...

If you read the update at the bottom, they used an accelerant to actually get ignition to flames. That's pretty crappy that it wasn't disclosed in the original. It's fine that they used it to get those shots, but it's that they didn't disclose that with the original photographs leading us to believe that it was natural combustion.

As a social Darwin-ish I would like to see other parts of him catch on fire before he has kids
;D  ;D  ;D
