EOS Bodies / Re: The ultimate 5d3 poll - What's your take on the 5d3?
« on: April 23, 2012, 11:25:41 AM »
To those with the Mark iii and 85L.

Is the AF more accurate / faster wide open ?

Not 'wide open' but AF had no trouble tracking this athlete in an underlit high school gym....

Handheld - no IS needed for high shutter speeds, maybe if you needed less ISO, slower shutter speeds but with 5d3's improved ISO performance, no problems with this fine lens



Here is another low light, handheld shot with a 7d

My 'preset' candid settings didn't work out as planned, but in a break in the action, I caught one of the players messing around with the ball...maybe not exactly a candid, but shows off the 5d3 135/2 combo.

I enjoy checking back from time-time to see what others are seeing.  Still curious as to the 'go-to' settings people use.  I just set up my Custom functions button on my 5d3 this AM as a trial to:

1/120s,
F5.6,
auto ISO (limit at 3200),
Single shot AF with center point and surrounding 8 point expansion

and will be doing some 'crowd' shots at a VB match tonite - hope to have some to display  :)

Always nice to have the extra stop with 135/2, but the 5d3 lets me be lazy too with 70-200 2.8 II

AI servo


DRYL1561 by PVC 2012, on Flickr

Used the 5d3 and the 300 2.8 (original) with just a slight humming/vibration noted. Seemed to lock focus quickly w/o jumping but more noticeable than any sound from the 1dIV.

RAW is all that matters.

Unless you are shooting sports / news for a deadline and/or wirelessly are transferring files for a smaller file size.
Not every photo will be enlarged to its' maximum possible size, every time, although I have heard before that size 'is' all that matters.  ;)

I just finished shooting the moon with 300 2.8 + 1.4x, but manually focused;  and I have used the 300 2.8 in AI servo w/o a problem.

My copy seem sharp - this is out of the camera JPEG - did shoot on both cards, 1 RAW and 1 JPEG - waiting for update to LR 3 before batch processing the RAW. Tried the ACR 6.7 (?) update but extra step in saving / posting has me shooting JPEG for the time being. 

252
I'm spoiled by the 1dIV so it seemed slow, but compared with 5d2 I've tried it was brisk at 4-5 frames sec writing L L JPEG to the SD and large RAW to the CF ( both very fast cards).  The tracking in AI servo was good, high keeper rate by me ( not so high by my apprentice), and here are the out of camera JPEGs, modified only by custom WB and camera landscape.

Nice effort - few constructive suggestions for LR:

Crop more to isolate the face / emotion and remove background clutter

Consider some post-highlight vignetting to soften/darken the corners to give appearance of 'spotlight' on the subject - not too much, keep it subtle

When cropping, use the alignment tool to make sure the background horizon is appropriately flat or vertically aligned.

These were shot with my 1DIV but I also just started using the 5d3 - I'll post some of those shortly.

I thought the JPEGs were actually pretty good for ISO 3200 in a high school gym, varying light.

I feel the 5D2 is sharper still

I saw these posted earlier but didn't look at them as closely as I did today. They don't look too bad, although they are on the soft side. They did sharpen up nicely with a subtle unsharp mask, though. Maybe my standards are just low :)

It sounds like the jpegs are real turds, though. Can anyone put up some sample jpegs? I'd like to see how bad the in-camera processing is.

255
I thing the ACR6.7 shows up even softer
the out of camera jpegs are so bad i've just turned them off all together.

My initial feeling about the files is they are not as good as the 5Dmk2 however its to hard to call until proper raw converters come out.

I really dont know what they have done to the in camera jpg output but its not good

i've not processed any files yet just view in DPP and bridge and open in PS but the adobe ones are noticably softer than the dpp preview
 

I agree - I want a better RAW converter the ACR 6.7 was not very good either, though I am not 'underwhelmed' by the in camera JPEG.  Here is a sequence of shots - with out of the camera JPEG settings (except Landscape and WB set to 3200) - not too bad handling of either the JPEG engine or the AF / low light handling, these are a burst at 1/800, f 2.8 ISO 3200 with the 70-200 2/8 II.
