EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: RAW or JPEG
« on: September 24, 2013, 07:57:59 PM »
shoot raw and forget about exposure because
Nikon D800 can let you underexpose as much as 5 stops and rescue that in raw  8)

Why would you want to underexpose and rescue when you can just expose properly and don't strain the sensor too much? Did you underexpose your film and hope to "increase" the exposure in the darkroom?

Sensor capabilities are overblow. Shoot properly, frame properly, and 1mpx camera is fine for all of our facebook needs.

I am Ren Kockwell and I only shoot JPGs because in 5 years, RAWs will be unreadable anyway. I will be shooting away with my Fujifilm while you are crying for losing your RAWs. Plus I can take JPGs and my floppy disk can hold all 2 of them, where as I would need 15 floppies to hold just one RAW. And don't get me started on cheap crap like D800 with its mega pixels. My 12 year old D1 takes just as good picture and gives me 5 fps, without clogging my 2004 Mac Book Pro.

I know everybody has invested in lenses and accessories, so jumping ship is not practical, but here is what that 3 stop of extra DR can mean (5D3 on top, D800 on the bottom):

Cognitive dissonance is very high with Canon customers who just shelled out a couple of Gs on their imaging equipment. They will try to justify by saying that "I always expose properly, so who cares about pulling shadows", "I shoot JPG anyway", "I like how Canon feels in my hands", or "Canon sells way more cameras".

Canon just does not seem to be able to break that 11 point DR. If only their customers make fuss about it... but  Canon customers are not demanding sensor quality and Canon is gladly shipping out decade old technology.

Thou shalt not believe in false scores of DxoMark

Thou shalt not praise usefulness of deep shadow details

I read that the 1DX has the 100000 RGB Metering while the 5D3 reuse the 63 dual layers from the 7D.
I wonder if anyone has more info on this.

1) How does it affect image quality or
2) Does it just affect the exposure metering?

1Dx is the best sports/action camera ever made. 5D3 is a poor man's 1Dx that has neither speed nor IQ.

Software & Accessories / Re: What size RAW should I shoot at?
« on: August 02, 2013, 08:02:11 PM »
Sorry for the newbie question, but shooting at full sized RAW (20M 5472x3648) on my 6D can take up quite a bit of room on my computer's external HDD. M-RAW is bumped down to 11M, and S-RAW drops all the way to 5.0M. My photos are never printed, unless someone prints them for themselves. I deliver all my photos digitally, in full resolution of course. That being said, if S-RAW has a resolution of 2736x1824, which is quite a bit larger than an HD resolution of 1920x1080, does it really matter if I shoot at 5M? I barely ever crop over over the 16x9 aspect ratio, so I assume it should be fine? Anyways, I came here to get some valid answers from more experienced shooters. Thanks in advance!

I just bought a 2 TB external HDD (USB3) for $100. It will hold 100,000 RAWs easily. When I had 1.44 MB floppy disks I used to be scared by sizes; not anymore.

To be fair, it looks like you do not need 20 mpx resolution; all my facebook posts are like less than 1 mpx. When I print, I print huge, so I am a bit extreme when it comes to printing. My D800E is not enough so I often stitch.

Folks, this proves that Canon sensor is lagging way behind the competition. If you want shitty image quality, Canon is your choice. Until Canon customers speak up and demand quality, they are happy selling the suckers mediocre sensors and crappy IQ.

I thought we are not supposed to trust DxO considering they are in the pocket of everyone-not-canon.

Seriously, this is a SWEET lens, perfectly suited for 7D..

26
Oh, and a bit less DR.  Therefore, overall I see a better camera in the 5DIII.

2.5 stops of less DR is "a bit less"? And on top of amazing DR, you get more than 50% detail with D800. I know you have to make excuses but this is just sad.

Good sensors yes, and yet they consistently sell less than Canon...

If sales figure is a mark of technical prowess then a Civics and Corollas are the best cars in the world.

If a Ferrari cost you the same as a Civic, which would you rather buy?

An 11 DR sensor can be a Ferrari. In what world are you residing?

You're missing my point. If cameras equipped with Sony sensors were Ferraris, people would not pay even higher prices for Canon 11 DR Civics.

You have no point. Masses care about instagram and iphone pictures. None of these dslrs are status items either. A lot of those who care about IQ and print big are not too happy about 11 DR (barring cognitive dissonance).

Shouldn't Canon be creating something greater than 23 megapixels before jumping with the big boys?

Yeah, because they didn't already create (your word) a 120 MP APS-H sensor...   ::)

BTW, who are the 'big boys'?  There's only one for FF...and it's not Nikon.

It was great using the magical 120 MP APS-H sensor! What not to like, whether the awesomeness of 120 MP or the un-dead nature of the APS-H. Talk about relevancy!

Oh, and the big boys are all those higher mpx, high DR, superior sensors found in all modern DSLRs except for Canon.
