I remember reading something about the price difference having something to do with extra/higher Tax(es) when manufacturing (Don't quote me exactly on this) cameras that can film/capture content longer than 29:59 minutes. Anything after that is considered 'broadcast' (I think, again don't quote me) and incurs the higher tax(es), which is why 1DX/5DIII etc can only record for 29:59.
I'll have a look for the article and post it later.
Your grand niece is very cute with that pony.
One comment, not sure if you're able to, but a fill-flash (preferably a 430EX or 580EX class, or even off camera) would help greatly for riders faces.
Also you're at ISO 400 @/f13, any particular reason you are stopping down so far instead of f/7.1 or f/8 or so? 1/500 is good, but you probably could go faster with ISO100 @f/7.1, and you'd probably get slightly sharper images, since on a crop you tend to (depending on pixel counts) start hitting diffraction limits quicker than full frame.
cheers for the comments.....
I dont like using Flash on or off the camera near the horses...as you never know if your going to spook one near you
The conditions look better than they were and with I was using the large Sigma Lens which cuts alot of light out in itself...
It does look good no doubt the best DSLR for video ever but it is a bit ridiculous that if they are going to double the price just for a firmware upgrade to not have put in such utter basics as zebra, peaking, zoom in while filming and heck ML even gives waveforms, etc. How $6000 for firmware and then they leave that out, such basic stuff that even a couple hackers have managed on their own?
Anyway as he says it plays with your mind, it's both worth the price, for those who can afford it which certainly leaves some out, and yet a bit of a rip at the same time. I still wonder if it might not have been better to price it like a DSLR and get their years ahead of everyone and not leave stuff out and take the world by complete storm than the conservative route and wait to price it and move it down when everyone else can already do it as well (or worse if it turns out, better).
Anyway, nice review.
Thanks for the welcome all and ill do my best to learn.
Btw one thing i really do NOT get about the 1d mk iv , is that it cannot use all 39 cross types with f4 lenses(like the 500 f4 it can only use 19), but a few exceptions it can, 24-105, 300 2.8+1.4 converter, 70-200 2.8 1.4 converter and 400 f2.8 with 1.4 converter
Does anyone knows why that is? and if there is a way around it , other then acquiring one of those lenses.
Electronic viewfinders, crude when they first came out, are now almost as good as optical and the time will come when they are better. Remember not so long ago when people said digital will never be as good as film? Times change.
Eventually we will have mirrorless cameras that exceed the limitations set by mechanical mirrors.... and that day is coming soon. We already have 4/3 cameras which exceed the 7D in IQ and getting close for focus. A mirrorless 7D2 would not supprise me..... and if it works better than a 7D, who cares if it has a mirror or not..... unless you really like mirror shake in your pictures...
Excellent points although I still think EVF technology is not there yet in one or two years? possibly but I dont think that likely. Maybe 5 years
The day will probably come where the EVF has its own dedicated processor to make it lag free and insantaneous
of course there are all the other benefits that can be put into an EVF like on screen information and overlays
who knows they could even have RED AF points! (one day)
I was wondering this too. I got the 5D3 24-105 kit and the lens is unbelievably sharp out of the box. I have heard others not so happy with this lens so I thought maybe they did some sort of micro adjustment for kits.
Based on preliminaary digging around about AF assist beams, I believe the Yongnuo AF assist beam will only illuminate to use the center focus point where apparently the 430 will illuminate to be able to use all focus points of a 5D3 body.
I'm going to dig in some more to try to confirm this, since I like the Yongnuo products, but if it is true that the Yongnuo AF assist is capable of illuminating for center only focus point, I'll probably buy something else.
If anyone has definitive info on the Yongnuo AF assist please chime in!
