Canon General / Re: Does Canon really deserve this?

The 18MP in very much cameras- that was a real PITA.
Halfhearted mirrorless, lost the top position they had with the 5dmk2.

On the plzs side: excellent new lenses
And the radiocontrolled flashes.

Sometimes I think of Canon consisting of two different philosophies...

DSLR Controller.
Take a look, which camera is supported.
Features are great.
And check out the FAQ- section if you are a backbutton- user like me!
Have fun!

Galaxy Note v1. In sufficient light surprisingly good, also the video.
Its nice to have this as a quickdraw!

Lets see, what the practise shows.

For my POV, using a xxMP sensor, getting information of a certain "lightfield" (always good to use a new term to be cool and different!) and then cut out a slice can only result in a very low portion of the whole information, means notsogood IQ.
Somewhere, must be now 3 or 4 years ago, I read about a sensor around 3 or 6MP, capable to make prints to show online (their words) - didnt sound very promising other then a fun- or lifestyle tool.

I would be surprised if this would be better!

The Hasselblad- Version of a Sony NEX, 5 times so expensive with absolutely no benefit.
And to ice the cake: ugly as hell.

Nice story. Meeting people can be a joy or a pain, you never know.
I was there (Pattaya) too, but had accompany of a friend, who knew the owner of the bar/disco for years; I felt safe.
Alone I would never show my equipment too open hearted, and it would be to much stress to keep an eye on it all the time.
You had good luck, and so a nice memory.

Speedlites, Printers, Accessories / Re: Card Failure: Lexar CF 32GB 1000x
« on: October 24, 2014, 04:31:10 AM »
Owning different brands in the past and now (Sandisk, Lexar, Transcend, Sony, Samsung, Toshiba) I had issues with:
Transcend 16GB CF 600x (very slow, didnt loose images. Slow. compared to others 1/3 speed)
Sandisk 16GB CF 60MB/s (look above)
Samsung SD (the metal one) didnt work at all at delivery
Sony SD 16GB 94MB/s didnt work in the Sony RX100 (!!), h2test found errors

My 1D Mk4 has sometimes hickup at longer series with the CF card (no matter which), cannot reproduce or provoke it........

My observations thrown in.
addendum: the more expensive a card is, the more honest seem to be their speed.

In whatever combination I pack my stuff in one of my (estimated) 10 bags, mostly ThinkTank, I try to keep cameras- never without a lens BTW- and other stuff separated by soft dividers to avoid to destruct each other.
So everything has a place and is fixed there.
Avoids damage, unwanted and annoying sound when walking.

when the bag is too small- problem.
if it is too big: problem too.
10 bags: problem solved.

As it was never a question, using a Canon- System (in my case 1D4; 5D3; several LLenses) I was never tempted with a small Canon.
As someone wrote before- Canon is solid, but not the leader.

I am very happy with my (Boooh!!!) Sony RX 100 M3 as I was with the Mk I (where was Canon?), and if Fuji goes onwards with their lovely X- System I think of changing.

Look at a file from an X- Trans II file (XT1, XE2, X100s, X100t) and you can see, what a APS-C sensor is able to deliver.

Nuff said.

Speedlites, Printers, Accessories / Re: Lexar CF cards FAIL - Sandisk?
« on: October 19, 2014, 02:57:08 PM »
"Premium"- cards like Sandisk or Lexar seem to be a little bit more reliable then cheaper ones like Transcend.
Although: I had issues with a Transcend 16gb 600x, a Sandisk 16gb 30mb/s and a Sony 16gb 94/s SD.

The first both were only getting noticable slower; the Sony didn't work- in the Sony RX 100.

Check the card with h2tw, for example. A real bad one should be identified.

Oh- I have Lexar CF and SD- everythings fine.
