"Industry leading ISO Performance" limited to 6400 native  :P

High MP cameras is not about high ISO performance, it is about high DR at base ISO. If your applications require high ISO they don't require high MP, and then there's 5Dmk3 and 1DX.

If it will offer 12 DR stops @ ISO 6400 then why forbid them go so far?  :D

I would be happy if it has 12 DR stops @ ISO 100, considering Canon's classic blown-out sky feature in the past.

the pictures were quite amusing. one photographer just stood there with a smile and forgot to shoot (D: ) curious if he just smashed it in automatic mode, or the settings just happened to be right.

but it was a nikon... unfortunately :P

That was the photographer from whom Bolt took the camera.

Only if I can make a Nikon look like a Canon.........

All you need to do is lower DR, higher banding, lower resolution, and higher pricing.

Canon should run an ad campaign to tout how the best use Canon! If Bolt uses Canon, you can bet a lot of impressionable folks will be lining up to buy 5DM3 and 1DX! Boy, I can't want to be a fly on the wall in one of the Canon marketing conference rooms.

EOS Bodies / Re: Should/can Canon keep making its own sensors?

I believe that DxOMark either can't fully decode the CR2 file using their own software, are nothing more than a Nikon marketing shill, or both.

You don't need DxO to tell you that 5D3 has shitty shadow noise and banding. Its DR is sufficient if you can nail the exposure, shoot JPG, and post online, however.

You mean the banding that has been in every Canon camera since 2005?
The banding that has just gotten worse instead of the dynamic range of the sensors increasing?
The banding that only shows up in third party RAW converters, and not DPP?
That banding?

We are not comparing 5D3 to powershots and coolpixes. The benchmark is now D800/E. 5D3's DR is blown out and away by D800/E in IQ department. Even NEXes blow Canon sensors away. Interesting seeing the denial.

Interesting.  I've been shooting with the 5D Mark III since April and I have not noticed those issues with RAW files and printing.  Hmmm, guess I got the only good copy.

5D3's IQ is same as 5D2's. Good photographers can take any equipment and make them look good. But 5D3 itself has no IQ improvement over its 4 year old predecessor. Fact.

Not sure I claimed it did??  I bought the 5D Mark III after having a 5D Mark II for a long time due to the myriad of improvements over the Mark II.  IQ wasn't one of them.  I'm not getting your point?

It looks like you are content with 5D2's IQ. Others like myself are not. My point is that people are showing their denial and even blaming DxO for not giving their 5D3 a good IQ score. The fact remains, IQ wise(which I personally consider the HEART of a camera), 5D3 has no improvement, thus a failure in my opinion. That is not to say that good photographers cannot take awesome shots. They have and will continue to do so.

The next 7D with an aps-h sensor like the 1dm4 would kill! I'd buy it. Sensor size has always been one of the largest points of any camera. Bigger sensored cameras have more photo-site space and with gapless lens technology on the 1DX and 5DM3 its a big win over the Nikons non-D series sports cameras. Its also a win over Sony and others that are 1.5 or 1.6 crop. This would separate the 7d from the two digit series cameras like the 60d. It would kind of take the old helm of the sports camera but in the middle spot the 1dm2/3/4 held.

With Canon's archaic sensor tech, I really doubt they would want to fiddle with sensor sizes. They even had to get rid of the APS-H sensor. Canon can compete by offering other value added features such as frame rates, JPG engines, touch screens, 4K video, 60 to 120p, rate buttons, print buttons, email buttons, and even Facebook browsing.

It looks like the guy is a dang good photog, so Canon might be preferring him to lesser photogs? Common photogs will be waiting for a while, it appears. First, Olympic shooters, then good/reputable photogs, then the rest of the gear heads.

There will NEVER be a "3D" line, unless, of course, it actually takes 3D pictures. So, it will most likely be a 2D or a 4D.

Dispite what DXOMark says tests at DPReview show that the 5D Mk III has more dynamic range than the D800 http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikon-d800-d800e/19


You are joking, right? Turn the ADL to Extra High and see D800 range go from the end to end. Let's face it, 5D3's DR is even worse than its 4 year old predecessor's.

Check out this guy's work:

He shoots with the 5D Mark III and Mark II previously. When people say these cameras have poor dynamic range just point them to this guy's work  :D


Nobody is saying 5D Mark II has low dynamic range. Its DR was fine, similar to its competition 4 YEARS AGO!

Now, the new 5D Mark III has much lower DR than its competition. Good photographers can somewhat compensate using HDR techniques, but the facts don't change that 5D Mark III has much lower DR than the competition.

If you are a landscape shooter and are not married to Canon, then you will get much, much more bang for the buck if you use D800/E. OF course, the ultimate for landscape shooters is the MF backs, but that is beyond the scope of the DSLRs.


Too bad there aren't any good Nikon lenses that will utilize the full DR potential of the 800/E.


No FF lens can utilize a 36mpx sensor to its "full DR potential". But that does not mean they come close... coming close to the full potential yields far greater IQ than whatever inferior sensor Canon is stuck on, at least for landscape photography. I guess my point is that D800/E IQ will exceed Canon's in landscape photography, so a landscape shooter(like the OP) would definitely benefit right away.

EOS Bodies / Re: Will there be a 7d2 at all?
« on: June 09, 2012, 03:36:56 PM »
With the release of the updated 7d firmware, the writing's on the wall - it's hardly probably that a 7d2 is just around the corner if the year-old model gets a free facelift. So what's your take on Canon's strategy for the mid-price range?

Until Canon improves its sensors, why even bother. 7D has awesome AF and does insane FPS. Now with the buffer upgrade, it is just top of the line Canon Crop.

So, there is nothing to upgrade.
