Canon General / Re: Battery Overheat
« on: August 16, 2014, 07:19:51 PM »
A mobile - a Nokia from the early nineties- had a battery overheating, that melted even the contacts.
The phone was in a friends coat, so he noticed it very quick.....

I place my NiCds or LiIons when the get charged on a place, that can't burn, like a big plate.
Safety first.

@mcguyver: I hope too it will not be a "cripple to fit"- body.
Would be very nice they bring out a body which shows, what is possible now.
As the coming APS- C top notch body from the leading company it should fit in this category.

We will see soon.
I hope.

24-70 and 70-200 you should have.
For travel to cover everything, a Ultrawide would be useful: something starting with 16....

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Fun Arias rant on APS-C vs. FF

Dont like all the repeats, brainwashing.
Dont like this kind of religious argumentation at all.
I still like the sensor in my Fuji X100s, but Mr. Arias less now.

+1 for the Epson 3880.

If you print larger numbers of A3 it will help you saving money because of the bigger cartridges.

Strange thing: I don`t miss that on my Canons, but on my Fuji X100s....

Very good program with a small drawback: I have to turn of all the settings for back button focusing- otherwise the application refuses to work and shuts down.

I own and love this lens since January 2011.  Double the price of the non-IS, but sharper and the incredible image stabilizer was and still is priceless in many situations!

Pricewatch Deals / Re: SanDisk Sale at B&H Photo
« on: July 17, 2014, 03:50:56 AM »
I bought a 64 and a 128GB SD from Transcend, the one which is specified write 60MB/s; read 95MB/s.
They are faster then my Sandisk 95MB/s, at half the price.

I use 3 external Drives, alternating in a circle. Same size; when full, 2 stay at home, one at a friends house.

Lenses / Re: Anyone here been to Punta Cana?
« on: July 11, 2014, 03:50:32 PM »
Been there 2005.
I used my cam:
Kids in the water
A shark accidently caught in a net, set free again.
The rusty wreck on the beach.

Used most: tele.

Reward: the first pictures of my stepdaughters. Priceless.

Have fun!

Lenses / Re: Sigma 35mm f/1.4 ART questions

My Canon 35L is very reliable.

(Sure I am curious about the Sigma, but I am very satisfied with my Canon)

EOS Bodies / Re: Eos7D mk2, How disappointed will you be if . . .?
« on: July 08, 2014, 02:32:44 AM »
If it has an SD- card slot, maybe now understanding UHS-!, but only half speed.

Buffer with only 15 frames depth.

No spot metering on the activated AF- field.

And all this only to make it fit to its pricetag aka cripple to fit.

FF vs Crop: the Fuji X- Trans sensor is very tempting.......

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Speculation [CR1]
« on: June 18, 2014, 12:30:41 PM »
IF there is a new Crop replacing the 7D, I hope  Canon will show cojones.
Means: showing what is possible.
Example: double card slots- FAST ones!! Not the ancient interface for SD on the 5D3.
Or a fixed mirror, enabling a very fast framerate.
Or a lower MP sensor like the Fuji X Trans with very good high iso capabilities.

What do I expect: a new body, witch  is constructed to fit in its place.
