EOS Bodies / Re: Which is better for high ISO, 6D or 5D Mk III?
« on: July 08, 2014, 08:21:02 PM »
The difference between the files are so minimal that I would call it a dead heat with the 6d just ever so slight advantage but would you notice in the real world.. don't think so.

The fact is you can get cracking results out of both cameras up to 6400ISO where i feel commercially you can push to. 12800 and 25600 can be used but only when needs must and you wouldn't get the shot otherwise.

Heres a few images shot at 12800 on the 5DMKIII and the 100mm L as a test to see what it could do!

The main positive about the 6D is the centre point is rated to -3ev whereas the 5DMKIII is -2EV.

But at the same time if your shooting in low light with large aperture glass you will be centring your image to keep focus, focus recompose with anything under F4 on a full frame camera and missing focus is very easy to do.

On the 5DMKIII you have 5 -2ev points which makes creative composition easier.

My 5D III focus just fine, even below -3EV (f1.4, 1.3sec, 1000ISO)

My wife has been using an 18-200mm zoom on a 7D on vacations for some time. With a CPL filter she's getting very good results, when she has enough light. For low light situations she turns to my (monsterously heavy) camera bag for a faster prime.

Alternative: I just bought a Sony RX100 MIII to use when I'm flyfishing (a 5DIII with a 24-70 f2.8L II does not fit inside my waders  ::)). It has the equivalent of a 24-70 lens, with good low light performance. I am very impressed with the IQ from this very small thing.

I'm about to sell my a7r + FE 55mm and replace with RX100 III. Played with this little guy few days ago at local camera store, I really like the size. Can't go wrong with 24-70mm range.

Am I the only one who doesn't care what mode random people use? It's one thing to observe what camera someone has (and since manufacturers often put the model name on the strap, it's easy for those of us to don't follow the mass market offerings closely) from afar, but getting up close enough to observe mode-selection dials? That's weird. IJS.

It's kinda obvious when rebel users came to me and asked for photography advice. Not only they were shooting in the green mode, they were also using auto focus(camera focus to nearest point.)

Would that considered as "weird"?

If the price is right, why not settle for well known companies - Canon & Nikon.

Many of these poeple are likely shooting in the green mode anyways, my sister in laws are included.

Crappy review, too many photos to look at

Why don't you make a video review and post it  on youtube so I can watch it. My time is more valuable than your ;D
LOL, but you forgot the "does this make me a _____" line ;D

Also, as I said, I'll get them all together for a nice slick review, but wanted to share the raw (pun intended) elements of it (for now).

For a quick summary - I think the most noticeable thing is how little CA the new lens has, how much contrast it has, particularly at 16mm, and how sharp the TS-E 24 II is - wow!

Of course, the caveat is that there are certain things the 16-35 f/4 IS simply can't do that the TS-E lenses can - for example:

This angle of the ugly Florida Capitol building, as shot with the 16-35 f/4 IS:

Similar shot with the TS-E 17 - shifted:

Great stuff man.  Thanks for sharing all photos.  Helped a lot.

EOS Bodies / Re: Eos7D mk2, How disappointed will you be if . . .?

Canon 7D it's ok, but the new all espected 7D Mark II will be better than may Canon 6D - 24 Mp + better low light ISO.

Bring it on.  And if there is a substantial improvement in sensor technology (by every one else's standards but Canon), let us know when that will percolate up the line, especially to the 5D and 1D series.

Would be awesome if 1DX II can do nice & clean @ 25000ISO.

Great Stookan on the North coast of Ireland, taken from Giant's Causeway. Although I have thrown focus out in the distance you can see make out Grandmother Rock on the original - looks like a bent over old woman climbing the hill.

Canon 5D + 40mm pancake

Feel like I'm in the "300" movie. Very nice Sporgon.

The 40mm pancake is a small lens. However, this little guy plays big role in Canon lineup. I'm thinking selling my a7r + FE 55mm and replace with 5D III + pancake.

Dylan...your signature line shows that you already have a 5d3 and 40mm?

Yes, indeed. I have this combo 2-3yrs now. I meant, once I sold a7r and 55mm, the 5D III + 40mm pancake will become my compact system.

Rent another 6D + two 600EX-RT.

Two bodies + 24-70 II + 135L + two flashes = safe, unless the wedding is outdoor day time.

You'll need 2nd body.

"AWESOME...can't go wrong. No studio lights needed."

Whilst I really like the flexibility of the RT system and it works very well for me 90% of the time there is no doubt it doesn't come close to even modest "studio" lights for power. Personally I think, as always, Neuro has a very good collection with a decent Canon RT setup and an Einstein or two.

Personally if Canon don't come out with a true 1Ds MkIII upgrade soonish my camera budget is going on the Prophoto B1 Airs, more than six times the power of a 600 for less money, you have to work hard to make a Prophoto seem good value!  :)
Indeed ;)
Without With your advice prior my purchases of 600ext-rt, I feel 3units of 600ex are enough for my needs at home. I went with 5pcs due to Adorama special sales. Be able to mount the 600ex flashes on cameras at the event is quite special.

I have three 600's and an ST-E3.  Powerful, flexible, reliable, easy to use.  Highly recommended.


600ex-rt qty:5
ST-E3 qty: 1

AWESOME...can't go wrong. No studio lights needed.
