EOS Bodies / Re: 1d X field test
« on: April 29, 2012, 03:59:29 PM »
In terms of "softness" I had a Mark II for almost three years and now I have two Mark IIIs.  The Mark III is very sharp.  It is sharper than the Mark II and the IQ in terms of color and ISO are superior.  I can't imagine the the 1Dx having a "softness" issue if the Mark IIIs images are extremely sharp.   

Yeah? Could you post a couple of raw's, say of a barcode and small text, I can compare to mine with? because mine is def softer than my 5d2. Serioulsy different.

that would really help. at full resolution please, a RAW file would be perfect if possible

I tried to reply on Jay Goodrich's post, and it wasn't posted as I said how terrible the images looked, it goes to show its all bullshit, monitoring what is posted about a camera because he has some sort of bond with Canon, I think you should be allowed to be heard, its only going to help Canon get better, not hide behind some S___ and post a blog about how great something is, when everyone knows there's some problem and it isn't so great, reviews from these people are meaningless if posts are monitored. shame shame shame.

This is so odd because we hear so much about some kind of softness in the mkiii image, which by the way i did experienced personally with my unit of the 5d mkiii i tried, and now we see lots of 1dx picture on the web with some kind of softness too.  Wondering if they changed something to their AA filter design that could cause this or maybe it is something else.   ???

JR I so agree its really worrying, I have no idea whats going on, I wanted to buy the 5D3 but was so concerned about the images being soft, is this something that can be fixed? who knows its really bad, I don't understand how this past a testing stage and was released like this,

Firmware Version 1.1.2 incorporates the following improvements and fixes.

2. Fixes a phenomenon where a pink cast may develop over the image when the shutter is completely pressed with the camera’s power turned off (by the auto power off setting).

I know your camera is turned on, but you tried updating the firmware?

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D3 and Canon's Comeuppance
« on: April 22, 2012, 01:23:30 PM »
I haven't been the only one who has made the observation that Canon seems more intent upon maximizing profit and protecting market segments instead of making the most kick-ass camera that it can. There always seems to be something purposefully gimped or a decision that was made by the marketing department instead of the engineers. I own a 5D3 and a d800 and it really seems to me that the folks at Nikon really tried harder. I originally bought the d800 for a specific purpose but now I find myself using it with a nice prime that I also bought. I really don't get the feeling using it that anyone at Nikon said "we better not do X because it'll cut into our sales of Y." My only major complaint is that it has a slow FPS, but then again it's moving massive files around.

Using my 5D3 I don't get the impression that Canon tried as hard as it might have. It really reminds me of American car makers back in the day trying to focus as much as possible on maximizing profits and not making the best cars that it could. We all know how well that went.

So anyway, Canon. Try harder. You deserve all the sh*t people are giving you. The 5D3 is a solid machine, but it's not great. There were so many missed opportunities. You probably could have made something very similar in 2010 but didn't. Try to build the best stuff you can and price it aggressively. Thanks.

love what you wrote and totally agree

hey tasteofjace I really love your shots, and I'm really impressed with how sharp they are, can I ask, are you happy with the overall sharpness of the camera? Id be tempted to ask if it was ever possible for you to send me a couple of your RAW files so I can view at 100% I really want this camera, but whats holding me back has been the overall sharpness, and now im thinking its been user error when I look at your files,

here is my email if that would be possible, id be so grateful



EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mk III vs D800/E, is the 5D3 better at anything?
« on: April 15, 2012, 06:06:04 PM »
I was going to buy a Mark3 untill I saw 100% crops and how soft the images are, yes I have seen a few that have been somewhat sharp, but I cant take the risk, I need the camera in my hands and my own memory card to come home with and look at the images, I am a Canon user with a 5D mark2 and is happy apart from the autofocas, I have seen how stupid sharp that D800 is and it does make me sad that my own brand who I really do love is making me worried, I even checked the 1DX samples, and wasnt so sure how many where tact sharp at 100% I am talking studio set up shots,

anyway, lets see

The reason I don't "sell it all and buy another brand" is simply because when the Canon-gear does what it's suppose to, nothing comes even close. That's why I'm upset, because it (5d3) has the potential of being a truly remarkable camera that will live up to the legendary statur of the 5d and 5d2, I'm just not seeing that now with all the issues.

How would you feel if you bought a sweet Ferrari and it went pretty good, but the old one was faster and sharper around the cornes, does it help that a bunch of people on a forum said, Yeah they will fix it, we hope.... Neh.. It should work when you turn the key and go like nuts, why? Cuz that's why you paid 200.000 dollars and it says FERRARI on it......

Viggo I completely agree,

Yes I like that...

In all the years me and a lot of other photographers were able to make TOP quality images with Canon equipment.

I have had it will all the complains about Canon.
Sell everything and buy another brand and see what happens then.

I really am thinking the same,

I have to be honest, reading all these posts, I am so disappointed with Canon, it feels that the 5D mark 3 was a complete rush job, no way has that camera been developed over 4 years, I have been on this website/forum for the last 8 months waiting for news of this camera, and I am shocked at the quality of the images, mainly at how soft they were, I was super happy with the AF, and that's all I wanted, but not to be softer than the mark2, I dont know if this is peoples models or it can be fixed, but I am in no way buying this camera untill I see a fix,

EOS Bodies / Re: 5d3 Camera issue already?
« on: March 20, 2012, 09:43:44 PM »
yep normal, its happened to me before on the Mark 2, its just the lighting is flickering and u cant see it with your human eye, but the camera can at those shutter speeds,

EOS Bodies / Canon 5DIII anti aliasing filter

Hi all, I have heard and only read once, forgot where that the new Canon 5DIII has a thinner anti aliasing filter than the Mark2, have you heard this also? if so can you provide a link? any thoughts on this thanks,

seems to be very little said about the subject,
