EOS-M / Re: My First EOS-M Review
« on: November 16, 2012, 09:53:41 PM »
Thanks for the nice review.
I bought a EOS M yesterday (with both lenses and the adapter) , although it's early times, here is some findings. My intention for buying was handheld video, as I travel around the world in my job and it's hard to pickup the 5D3 spontaneous. For sure this camera is an add-on to my 5D3.
I have noticed that AF is much faster if you use the "spot" metering, less hunting, both for video and pictures. Actually shooting with touching the screen is good as you easily can place the focus where you want, as for iphone.  It also reduces possible hunting for auto focus.
If you gonna move the focus point on a 5D3, it will also take some time.
Nice is also that you can download picture styles as for the bigger brothers, you footage for video can then look more similar and easier to grade.

i shot a few textured walls on a tripod with manual focus through live view, same ISO etc, and my 24-70L II is sharper than my 24L II in the center and the edges at F2.8 and even F4! Just like to confirm your experience as well.

I am aware of that, but if I kept the Iso locked, then the shutter speed will drop and it was a slight wind that caused unsharpness. The ISO would not affect  the sharpness too much, right ?

If you were able to load the "o" (original resoulution) it should be possible to see the difference I hope. I think my copy of the 24L II is bad, so I will investigate futher.
The problem with 16-35 is distortion espessially below 24m'ish.
I did not put in any distortion compensation in Lightroom, and yes if you swap between to pictures you see changes.
Never the less, the 24-70 maybe the new work horse, only thing is the impact of missing image stabilization.

I got the new lens yesterday and here is a unscientific test of the lens vs the others

Enjoy !


The is a new picture style called Lighform that I am using now. Very nice on skin tones, nice out of camram, but can be graded as well. If you have 5D3, you need to use sharpening in post. There is a filter in FCPX.  There is colour grading in FCPX, you should learn how to use that first. The are videos on http://www.colorgradingcentral.com
Resolve 9 is of course nice and more powerful, but it will complicate your workflow a lot. You have to use XML and take roundtrips .....  Learn to use vector scope etc.  and you will get a long way with FCPX..

EOS Bodies / Re: Stupid missing feature on 5D2 (auto iso)
« on: July 08, 2012, 01:48:26 PM »
The auto iso goes only up to 400 ISO. Both 5D3 and 7D goes higher. Am I over looking something ? 
Very useful when in manual mode.

It goes up to ISO 3200.  See page 58 in your manual.  However, there is no auto ISO when in manual mode, that was added in later to the 5D MK III
Now, is it the camera that is stupid?

Ahhhh thank you!  So did we find yet another upgrade from 5D II to 5D III?  Either way thanks, I just couldn't remember.  I suppose ISO safety shift could keep it 100-400, but that's the only thing I can think of at this point.  At ISO 3200 the 5D II will perform very well.

- Hi again
Yeh, I meant  manual - that when its stops @ 400. That why I called it stupid as it goes to 3200 in AV and TV.
I like to control both speed and aperture - and let the ISO float.  I have a 5D3 as well, so I will survive.  However it would have been useful, when I use two bodies.

#1 his face is too little exposed. #2 the mic hides his face. #3 too much flare. #4 need more colur, more saturation.
The laste one is nice, but you may crop it somewhat..
Sorry for .......

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D3 Shipment in Europe?!?!
« on: May 18, 2012, 11:11:23 PM »
I got mine May 16th in Norway, pre-ordered eary April.

Strange, as Norway prices normally can compete with international prices on photo equipment. I travel all over the world and e.g. Singapore is not much cheaper.
So this is very strange indeed....  If they do not change this... I buy it in US over the next month....
Could be they are protecting themselfs from exchange rate fluctations..

Lets see whats happening......
