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..

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.

Dynamic range is Probably more Important to me than noise reduction or pixel count.
I think the way to do this is to split the sensor into highlights and shadows...
I rather have an 8mp 16-stop split sensor, than a 16mp one with less DR.
It can be done.
It is interesting that most HDR cameras take 3 exposures but nobody thought about changing the ISO Instead.
I believe in pushing things to the limit and opening up the possibilities of a device...
Like my jailbroken iPhone 5. Which is amazingly more useful and fun than the limited iOS from apple.


Kudos to magic lantern!
Keep up the great work!

why not 36Mp and the best DR ?

D800/E is already 36Mp with 14.5 stop DR... without the ISO tricks

Is it just me or the dual iso is pretty soft compared to the crisp normal iso video?

27
When other companies are releasing cameras with these sensor technologies, perhaps Canon will finally have a sensor capturing 24 mpx and 14 DR at the base ISO.

EOS Bodies / Re: Are you really serious about 6D?

My 6D arrived few days ago.. and I can say.. WOW!
comparing my 6D with my old 40D and 1DS mk3

You cannot be serious about comparing to 10 year old cameras! That was precisely my point -- Canon fans (voluntary or those stuck) are getting hosed by the company , thus they are ecstatic about improvements like 1-point improved focus... hence my OT: are you really serious about 6D?

The only people who logically can get 6D are those Canon Crop users who have tons of pro/FF L glasses but cannot afford a 5D3. If you are upgrading to FF from Canon and are not beaming with L glasses already, the logical route is to jump to a BETTER brand anyway.

Canon, you are not getting a dime of my money on your recent cameras.

I'm sure they'll be crying all the way to the bank, as 60D and Rebel shooters, attracted by the allure of FF and by the 'affordable' price, coupled with consumer-oriented features like GPS, WiFi, and an SD card slot, buy up 6D's left and right.

Bravo, Canon stockholder! As for those Canon shooters who are stuck with inferior sensors.... good luck, buddy.

Please help me understand why people are excited about 6D? I cannot be excited about 97% VF, 1 x-pt AF, crippled 6D with wifi and facebook buttons. I will stick to a 5-year-old beloved 5D Mark II which is identical in IQ to Canon's newest sensors. Canon, you are not getting a dime of my money on your recent cameras. I have diversified my lenses so am not hostage to inferior sensors anymore.
