Technical Support / Re: Camera & lens bundle - do Canon tune them?
« on: January 22, 2013, 07:32:58 PM »
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.

Sometimes you get lucky and the lens you get works perfectly with your body. Sometimes...not so much.

Ok, and where is the 5d3 firmware update? Still April? It's taking forever!

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: 1 Billion Pictures per Second

Couldn't read the german, but I agree that if your shutter speed is too slow you won't get the full rated FPS on your camera.

For example, if your maximum is 3 frames per second, then your maximum shutter can be 1/3 sec. Actually probably just a tiny bit faster, but us mere humans probably wouldn't notice a difference. For 12fps, it'd be 1/12 sec shutter speed. Nearest would be 1/10 for 10 fps, or 1/15 which would give the full 12fps.

The other bit you have to deal with is the buffer size and how fast your camera can write to the memory card. If you are shooting full size RAW shots, you're going to fill up the buffer a lot faster than if you are shooting small JPG, which means you can shoot for a smaller amount of time at full burst mode.

Lighting / Re: Highend Youngnuo vs Canon 430EXII
« on: January 21, 2013, 11:12:55 AM »
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!

Hmm...don't know about the Yongnuo AF assist, but I thought I read that only the 600EX-RT has the AF Assist with a full spread to properly work for the 5d3. That includes the 430EX.

Site Information / Re: Problem with the Canonrumors Website

The JS rendering engine is the most proprietary and slowest of all of the browsers.  I work with automation software and it is, by far, the most particular and problematic (over anything built on WebKit like Chrome and Safari or Firefox).

"The box said requires windows xp or better, so I installed Linux"

Aside from malware (again, what did you do to determine you have none), genearlly this is something breaking JavaScript, or rather, rendering it incorrectly (unpactched IE or 3rd party software [like ad blockers, antivirus etc])

Google search comes ahead with things like internet explorer opens many tabs -- most of the responses say 'malware'

Erm...you do know that Firefox is built on the Gecko rendering with it's own JS engine, currently called IonMonkey in FF18. Chrome has Google's V8 JS engine, and Safari has the Nitro JS engine.

And proprietary is a relative term. Especially with Google's V8 engine, which is at the core of NodeJS. That and all of the Mozilla engines are F/OSS and can be re-used, modified, updated, etc with various minimal restrictions elsewhere, or even if your own browser. Hardly proprietary.

I'll grant you that Javascript is a pain in the a** in a lot of circumstances, especially with it comes to edge cases and browser compatibility. I will say that IE6-8 are the worst of the lot, with IE9 and IE10 (haven't worked with either, but read quite a bit) are significantly better at adhering to standards and fixing bugs.

Software & Accessories / Re: Where to buy Orange LP-E6 Battery covers?

Oh. I dunno, I was being facetious. I didn't know it was actually covered orange, since I don't own one.

Hey Everyone!

Lost a couple of these recently, and can't seem to find them anywhere on Amazon or BandH. Anyone have any clue where to find some online?

Thanks!

Grab some spraypaint and use in a well ventilated location?

Canon General / Re: More Canon Store Information
« on: January 14, 2013, 03:14:12 PM »
What would be awesome would be to have service centers at each of these stores.

This.

I'd bet they'd accept servicing requests, maybe do minor work (basic adjustments, replace a focusing screen, etc), but send anything more off to the nearest normal servicing center.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 6D weatherproofness, tested.
« on: January 14, 2013, 12:55:15 PM »
I'd also say that very few, if any, lenses will be dust/sand proofed. Maybe OK for short periods, but if you're going out into the desert for several days, be sure to take care to wrap it in plastic, and if the lens has an extending barrel, try and keep it from being totally exposed. Nothing like abrasive, alkaline dust to make it in the lens barrels to pay Canon some nice $$ for fixes. *sigh*

I'm starting a rumor that there's one of these stores coming to NYC, and Los Angeles. Let's throw in San Francisco, but that's for 2014.

Packt Like Sardines by Strykapose, on Flickr
5D3, TS-E24mm f/3.5L II, 6 sec f/4.5 ISO 100


That's gotta be HDR. Very pretty though.

Abstract / Re: What is this?
« on: January 11, 2013, 05:18:59 PM »
my guess is he does research.  when I was doing lab work there was an insane amount of waiting-for-tests-to-finish-running time that we spent on the computer, setting up strange ways to destroy expensive magnets, or meaningless arguments

What about strange ways to destroy common magnets? For the rest of us of course.

Are you saying that the Canon DIGISUPER 75 isn't a camera?

Yes, I'm saying it's a lens, not a camera.  Are you saying it is a camera?   :o

I, for one, recommend that you do NOT try and argue with Neuro unless you have actual, incontrovertible proof. Some that would cause a unanimous Supreme Court decision.

Lenses / Re: Will Canon be making a 16-35 f/2.8 IS anytime soon?
« on: January 11, 2013, 03:23:28 AM »
Well, Nikon may have no intention of releasing a 16-35 VR. A lot of the lens designs that are patented never turn into real products.

There are some rumors of a Canon 14-24mm, but until we get significantly better information, I wouldn't bet on it.
