EOS Bodies / Re: Need Help, 1 DsIII vs 5d mark III

Its just build your paying for, trust me, its just the looks you probably want and so did I, but then I felt I did have a 5 year old camera in my hand, and you really do, it isn't worth it, honest, you need to play with both, I was lucky I did,

EOS Bodies / Canon to announce medium format dslr?
« on: August 05, 2012, 08:34:15 PM »
Whoooa!!


http://www.petapixel.com/2012/08/05/canon-medium-format-dslr-and-sony-nex-6-both-coming-next-month/

"There are some interesting murmurings in the world of camera rumors. Photokina is just around the corner, and if the rumors are to be believed, we’ll be seeing some pretty earth-shattering unveilings at the German trade show.

CanonWatch recently received information about an upcoming medium format DSLR by Canon, to be announced at Photokina.

The camera will reportedly offer an EF mount, but may not be compatible with the entire lineup of EF lenses:

[...] newer EF lenses will be supported and (older) lenses with popular focal lengths that actually are suited for full frame sensors will see new editions for the medium format camera (possibly in Spring 2013). Since an EF mount accepts all EF lenses, the only way I can figure out you can block certain EF lenses from being used is through electronic sensing (my speculation). It is not known if the medium format DSLR will have a mechanical interlock for EF-S lenses (though I think this is more than plausible).

It would certainly be an interesting move by Canon. Just months after announcing a cinema DSLR to compete against the likes of RED, Canon would be diving headfirst into a market occupied by the likes of Pentax and Hasselblad.

On a slightly less earth-shattering note, SonyAlphaRumors is reporting with certainty that Sony has a NEX-6 camera prepped and ready for launch.

The camera would be a smaller counterpart to the enormously popular NEX-7 — a top-seller amongst mirrorless cameras. They write,

[...] this will be a sort of “mini-NEX-7″. It has an integrated viewfinder like the NEX-7 but with a tiny bit lower EVF resolution. The camera will be cheaper than the NEX-7 and price right in the middle between the NEX-5F (also coming in September) and the current NEX-7.

Get ready: we might be in for a boatload of exciting announcements come next month.



Looks like we have allot to look forward too,

anyone see this coming?

FPS, AF, ISO, Settings, so many of them etc, auto ISO etc, silent Shutter is amazing, Multiple exposures, just the general feel is so nice, I honestly loved the 1DS 3 before I had this in my hands, without a doubt I am so happy I made this choice its the right one, there's just so many options to this camera, its like it has everything you need, 22mps, is way enough generally, even HDR will have its uses and I hate HDR shots, but I know it could help if shooting interiors etc, its a move forward, also buffer time, its quick, the 1DS 3 is terribly slow if you turn on Iso NR, its a great camera..

EOS Bodies / Re: Understanding AF on the new 650d
« on: August 05, 2012, 08:31:04 AM »
all I can say is that it isn't much a jump for you, if I was you, I would consider a 7D that way there will be a huge jump in AF performance.

Thanks guys, I quick question, I have a 60/mbs CF and a 45/mbs card in the camera, do you know what speed cards I should have in it, at the moment, I'm still getting a 10 second buffer, I don't think its that bad, will I dramatically increase the buffer amount with other cards? thanks

Thanks to everyone who posted about upgrading to a 1DS 3 from my 5D2, I had to exchange it as I had a shutter button Problem, Now I have a brand new 5D3 and I have to say, its a bloody fine camera, literally everything you will ever need, I will miss the 1D body, but that's for another time, thanks again, I can now enjoy all the 5D3 posts,

here is a pic from today's street photography class for you, my first picture with the camera,

thanks all x

EOS Bodies / 1DS 3 losing focus during One Shot lock
« on: August 01, 2012, 11:44:47 AM »
Hello All,
and sorry to bother you all with such old problems now you are enjoying all your new latest models :) I have a question, I recently bought a 1DS 3 that I am extremely happy about, apart from a small problem, I noticed that when I am using the centre point AF, and one One Shot, the camera will sometimes, lose the lock of focus even though I am holding the trigger down, so I would focas on something, then recompose and the camera would then focas on the middle of where I have just composed too, even though my trigger had remained the same, this does not happen all the time, its like the camera was telling me that it wasnt happy with where it was focussed and then redid it, but by the time that happened I had moved, I rand Canon repair and they said, are you sure your not in AI Servo and I am sure, they said its £150 to get a full service,
Have any of you ever heard of this problem do you think there is some setting I have that is doing  this?
Thanks for your help, once I get this sorted I will be extremely happy

Louis

Quasimodo this is interesting, I am hearing focus problems with the 1Ds3 and this isnt what I want to hear, but what your saying is good news to me!

Thank you so much for your great replies, I'm mainly a Street / Reportage / Landscape photographer, I don't do many weddings at all, even though I should :) I will miss high iso no doubt, but I never really shot higher than 1600 anyway with my 5D2,
