Lighting / Re: Tip to use autoISO with fill flash in 5D III
« on: January 01, 2014, 11:27:02 AM »
Does not work on my camera ........  Pls specify more ....

Amazing thread..... How is this going to be resolved?
It may slow down sales a lot.

Not sure I want a 1Dx anymore......stick with 5D3

At f/1.2 focus accuracy is only going to be so accurate.

That´s the main point. If you are looking to get the f1.2 lenses, you should have the best available AF, to cope with the very shallow DOF. And if you can´t afford the 1DX, then 5DIII is next in line.

^^ This.  AF point accuracy is determined by the 'baseline' - an f/2.8 line is more accurate than an f/4 line, which is in turn more accurate than an f/5.6 line.  If your subject happens to be near the center of the frame, the 5DIII has five f/2.8 cross-type, dual-orientation points there, the 6D has...one f/2.8 single orientation line (and a less accurate f/5.6 cross).  If your subject is near a rule-of-thirds intersection, the 5DIII has a cross-type dual-orientation point with an f/4 line and an f/5.6 line, and the 6D has...no AF point at all near the rule-of-thirds intersection (the closest AF point is an f/5.6 single-orientation line), and not having an AF point on your subject means focus-recompose, and that means backfocus at f/1.2. 

There's not that much difference.  The 5D3 is not a much better camera, where image quality is concerned.  In fact it's less better.

I don't consider a misfocused shot to have better image quality than a properly focused shot.  There's more to capturing an image than the sensor (and the difference between the image sensors is less than the difference between the AF sensors).


Hi the video is fine for newcommers, but not sure the right people here @ cr.  Were way beyond this point i guess......

Nice blog, from the real world. Thanks for sharing.

Hey Folks,

I finally received my 5D Mark III a few days ago, and I have been tinkering around with it a little. SO far, I am blown away. Relatively new to using 35mm sensors. So this is a big step up from the 60D for me.

However, all well and good! I am having trouble using a different picture style for stills, than when in video.

For example, I would like to use a custom (User defined) picture style for video (Cinestyle/Marvels Cine), but I would also like to shoot to Canon's 'Standard' picture style for stills. And I can't see a way to do this?

I have always been able to do this with my 60D! So a bit lost.

Any info would be great!

Many Thanks,

You don´t need picture stile for stills if you shoot RAW, correct in Lightroom. Use the standard, and correct white balance, sharpness, etc  in post. If you have a 5D3 you need this software, else its a waste.

For video; you need to turn down contrast and sharpness somewhat. I am using Lightform that I bought, useful out of camere, but also possible to colour correct in post. I program the camera under C1-3 for video and then its easy to switch between stills and video.
You can add sharpness in post.

I personally own both and the reason I kept both is I keep telling myself I'm going to bring the 24-105 for travels as a one lens option. However, once I start using the 24-70, I soon found the difference between the 2 is way more than I imagined. Till today, I still own both bit I've not touched my 24-105 since for anything whatsoever.  I don't think I'll ever sacrifice what the 24-70 can give to use the 24-105 again

Ditto. Still have my 24-105, too...I've gone so far as to shoot product pics of it and dig out the original box, although I haven't actually listed it yet.

Ditto too, when you see the pictures of 24-70L II, you don't want to use 24-105 any more. It's scrap.

Lenses / Which supertele?
« on: March 25, 2013, 03:12:03 AM »
My lense collection is getting complete exept for a supertele. I was keen on the 300 and use it with extenders. Should i get the 300, 400 or 500 ? Plan to use it for sports and wildlife. Then I got concerned about the weight, would I bring it or use my 70-200 with extenders. Right now I leaning towords 500, due to reach and lower weight then the 400.
What's your advice?

EOS-M / EOS M handheld test
« on: January 01, 2013, 11:47:41 AM »
So why did I by the EOS M camera?  I have a job where I get to travel the world. however I do not earn my money on photo and film, but you may say I am an "advanced" amateur.
I wanted a small camera with good quality, also with video auto focus that I can quickly pull out and shoot. I have a 5D3 which I use for both photo and filming, but its not alway convenient to get ready in time.
Today I made a test, using AF and see if it able to focus under different situations.  Please see your self if this works......
