EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 70D features vs 60D
« on: September 04, 2013, 06:43:49 AM »
As my search, 70d has many improvements from 60d, see here, http://thedigitalcamera.net/canon-eos-60d-vs-70d-comparison/, if you think the improvement is useful for you, go for 70d.
Interesting the fact the the site says: GPS: YES!

In addition it has two entries for flash:
                          60D         70D
Built-in flash    Yes           No

Flash            Built-in    Built-in

To me this expression means: I sold all my vendor X cameras and lenses and bough the equivalent vendor Y cameras and lenses.
It seems that you had left your equipment intact while you...  were transferred temporarily via a boat from one ship to other and then back to the original one.  ;D

P.S Rumors that you harried back much earlier due to a possible 135mm 1.8L IS announcement are totally inaccurate...  ;D  ;D  ;D

It's not exactly what you asked but still interesting (16-35 2.8 I vs. 16-35 2.8 II)


Software & Accessories / Re: Bag to carry body attached to 500mm

Gura Gear Bataflae 32L. You can put the 500 with camera attached at one half of the bag and other equipment at the other half.

I finally bought the 26L which holds only the 500mm at one half because it is smaller. But I would like to have a choice...

26L seems the best for air travel. 32L seems better for the field.

It is expensive though.

It requires ONE actuation only. The resultant .CR2 file is processed via a program named cr2hdr.exe and produces a DNG file.

I was just late not too late as I had already agreed about Space Invaders on the specific ML forum 4 days ago...   ;D

Ah, excellent, it's very good I'm not the only one who regularly is on the ml & cr forum :-) ... otherwise I'd have thought the ml "enhance your firmware to improve your shots" community is completely separate from the cr "just buy new stuff to get better pictures" crowd :-p
I use my 5D2 for that. I keep my 5D3 intact  :) I have loaded 1.2.1 on it anyway. Plus, there is no completely uninstall yet for 5D3.

Next: Space Invaders?  ;D

You're too late - it has already been requested and I wouldn't put it past the Arkanoid author to do it (the main ml dev already scripted Sokoban): http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7847.msg70420#msg70420

13 years ago some people ported doom to digita os which runs on some kodak cameras

Canon uses the same arm cpu core as the Nintendo DS :-)

Thou shall need a 24-70II or a 70-200 II for getting any decent picture, even that of a worn out doorknob!

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Canon 5dIII Raw issue

1. You should exchange the camera only when you encounter problems without ML loaded. It's common sense.

2. You should go to Magic Lantern forums, sign on and find the correct thread to report the problem.

They always ask for material, so for a photo have ready the original CR2.  I used dropbox to give them access to one of mine. I guess something similar will be necessary for video.

Lenses / Re: EF 24-35mm f/2.8L pure wide angle zoom
« on: August 24, 2013, 05:24:20 PM »
The 24-35/2.8 range is already covered by two lenses. I really can't see adding a third one unless it brings with it something extra. For example, what about a 24-35 f/2.0? Or even faster?

If you need ultimate quality, just get a set of primes.
+1 Plus,24-70 f/2.8L is a superset with very good IQ. So it would be silly to get a 24-35 instead.

I doubt you would have hard time selling 17-55 and 50 f1.4. Those are great lenses.
The question is, what are you going to do with the money? ::)

1. 1D X
2. 300 f2.8 IS II
4. 400 f2.8 IS II
5. 200-400
Only one of each?  :P
For now, any equipment sold will go toward defraying the cost of my new RRS tripod setup.  ;)
I guess the new moto could be: all serious photographers must have the above equipment (all of it!)  ;D  ;D  ;D

There is no comparison between the 24-70ii and the 24-105 is...24-70 is just incredibly sharp! All serious photographers need the 24-70ii and the 70-200ii in their kit!
Hmmm, suddenly I feel ... half-serious since  I have only one of the two lenses...  ;D

If you did not sell now but kept it for another six months or so and still not using it, you'll know for sure that it will be ok to sell.
+1 That I admit is a good idea. I would make it a year though to increase the possibility that most  (if not all) of activities that OP is involved are encountered.
