Yet again more good news for the pro video guys. Last announcement was for dual pixel in the C100. I'm beginning to think photography is just a side business for Canon now. That would be a shame if they just forgot about us! Accounting and marketing divisions are running the show, I guess. Oh well!

This is the begining of the end for DSLR.

Canon will bring their FF, mirrorless, retro style with huge lens selection from 14mm to 200mm primes, in 2014.

Kinda looks like this

Just want to say CONGRATS on x100s ;)

To me, Fuji makes great retro body style. You will fall in love with this camera. I did.

Did you sell your rx1?
My wife took my rx1.

They definitely do. I initially wrote off the whole concept a couple years back when the x100 first came out as just another hipster accessory piece. But when the x100s came out, my buddy preordered one and has been in my ear about it ever since. Upon checking it out, I must say that I was/am thoroughly impressed.

The thought of being able to have something that was an all in one package that would allow me to do things like 1/1000th flash sync while shooting wide open (and higher stopped down), accompanied by built-in ND filters was amazing. This, along with all the other awesomeness that I can't even begin to mention made the x100s a no brainer.

Have you shot it with offshoe flash at high synch speeds at all?
I don't own any flash.  Just natural light

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 6D af tracking: experiences & usage cases
« on: November 07, 2013, 03:42:25 PM »
One think u can do for sure is to get rid of canon system and get nikon. One thing is sure for me. Nikon AF, despite faulty D800 units is way better in almost every aspect. I know what is 5D3 in specification list (61 points, many x type points etc.) but try it with one of the outer x type focus points or with center AF under bulbs or fluorescent light-BF or FF. Outer points with mojority of lens just do not wrok (FF)  I have one 5d3 and test two other, different 5d3s-same thing. Reviews and other tests don't shot that. U still has one point in reality. I spent a lot time on testing, trust me or not. Tested different bodies with different lenses, spoke with other users. The new AF system is ok if u use it with center AF, under daylight, with lens adjusted to specific distance, and if the lens are 2.8, if u change one of those factors-it will just not hit the target. That's not the AF system I thought I had paid for. I know how it sounds but it is true, regardless all reviews. Same thing about 6D. AFMA and other service adjustments are useless when u change environment a bit. Check any 5d3 or 6d, LV vs phase detect, then do same test with other camera producer.

Interesting... ::)

I don't why I got MUCH-MUCH more keepers in AI servo with 5D III than 5D II. Must the photographer ;D

The more I look at this camera the more it looks cluttered. It should only have dials for aperture, shutter speed and ISO to keep it clean looking. Let the rest be buried in to nikons horrid menu system because after all this is a "purest" camera.  ::)

Should look something like this; http://www.dylanphotography.phanfare.com/6246818#imageID=198269217

Oh well...rumor Fuji x200 is right around the corner and I'M IN :o

I finally jumped on it the other day when it was $1215.  Mine arrives tomorrow.  Although everyone has said over and over it's not a sports or wildlife camera, I ordered it with the 100-400 lens and plan to put some extensive work in to exactly those two areas.  Hopefully I don't venture too far into the land of the "I told you so's...".

LESSON & LEARN ==> http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=17492.0

I believe OP spent large amount of time reading reviews and comparing to other cameras prior his purchase.

There is no such thing:
1. Too many AF points and I don't need/use it
2. I don't need large aperture primes lenses
3. f2.8 is enough for 5D III/6D

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Off Brand: Nikon Announces the Df
« on: November 06, 2013, 12:27:41 AM »


Oh I think it is a dumb move by Nikon but it is also a desperate move to try and create a segment of the market where they don't have any competition from Canon or Sony. I similarly think that the A7 and A7R are a dumb move that will ultimately go nowhere or be confined to shooting with lenses under 100mm in focal length.

-1...A7 series is a wakeup call for Canon & Nikon in term of still and landscape shooting. I can see the market shifts when Sony/Zeiss comes out some UWA, macro and 85mm lenses ::)

Lenses / Re: When discontinued, does lens price go up or down?
« on: November 05, 2013, 09:46:46 PM »
There is nothing special about 24-105. My guess, price will cont. go down. You can get a new one on ebay for $600ish.

If you plan to shoot @ f8 to 11 then 24-105 is very handy, otherwise, it's crappy lens. When the price drops to $200, I will get one for my 5yrs daughter + 40D. Perfect combo for kid to have fun with photography.

Keeper list:
1. 50L f1.2
2. 85L II f1.2

Why? Canon starts making f1.8 IS primes. I wonder how much Canon 50mm f1 cost now a day ::)

Careful watch you wish for.  If the PPI of an iPad were scaled to that TV, it probably would be a 4k HDTV.

But it wouldn't have all that cool retro wood paneling, now, would it?   :P

I told you to be careful:

Fair enough.  If only I liked the design of the Df, I might be tempted to get a wooden iPad case (although those cases are far too sleek and curvy to be a good match for the Df). 

Now, this one.......



Neuro,
Believe it or not, my 5yrs daughter wants to dress-up her new Ipad Air everything in pink. I think these types of accessories will create a lot of money ::)

I'm a big fan of retro style((fuji x100s), but this Df doesn't look appealing at all.

I'm going to wait for Fuji FF mirrorless instead...

Good luck using something like this for a day long shoot  ;D

Some even think that is one "sexy combo" :-\

Sorry, but I just don't see it and will never get it ::)
