Technical Support / Re: Corrupt CF Card
« on: April 22, 2013, 03:41:33 AM »
Sometimes funny things happen with different card/cardreader combinations.
I have an issue reading the Sony SD 16GB UHS-1 with the Lexar USB 3.0 reader.
Loads very slow, then tells me, the files are corrupt.
Same issue with the Hama USB 3.0.

With an old Hama 2.0 device the download worked fine.

Interseting thing: also cardreaders can be updated by firmware. I dind`t know this until a friend told me.
Didn`t help in the case of the Hama USB 3.0/Sony SD combination......

Sure C. is developing something new.
And I am sure, also a new FF.
They always will.

Time will tell.
You can be sure by buying a 5d3 to have a good tool now.  ;)

Lenses / Re: 70-200 2.8 L **non IS**

Its a fine glass. Had it once, liked it a lot.

But then I had the money for the IS v2......

Epson 3800.

Try it, look how much you use it.
If you dont like it, sell it.

My copy was a lemon. Changed it for the Tokina 16-28; this I used a lot on my trip in Venice.
And yes: humans in the corners, espacially on the wide end can look a bit distorted.

Never tried to lock pictures, and thank you for the warning.
If this happened to two different cards, Canon needs to explain this.
The first one is/was ~ $ 300?
If you get an answer, please post it.
Good luck!

Nice. I will visit your town in May/June. And I will visit the castle too. Coming from Wr. Neustadt it will be a short, but interesting trip.

Thinktank Urban Disguise 70v2.
Big, stealthy, broad belt for the shoulder, optional a belt to wear it like a backpack.
Carried it 5 days in venice for many hours, very comfortable for the weight.

Lenses / Re: Prime vs zoom
« on: April 07, 2013, 01:24:47 AM »
I use both.
Coming from the 80s: the 35-70/4 (?) wasn't a lens with real good IQ, and there was a 3-stop gap, with the highest ISO of 3200 of the T-MAX 3200. So I used the FD 50/1,4.
Today I still use primes although I have zooms with now satisfying IQ.
Using f 1.4 to 2.0 sometimes gives the extra kick on 35mm, or the holographic look of the 135L wide open.

Crop it. Only the bird on the lawn.
As I would do it.
Nice shot!

I think it`s interesting to read some opinions and news.
And to see, how others work with their equipment.

Nothing about love or hate.

Lenses / Re: Migration from zooms to primes...your suggestions?
« on: April 04, 2013, 03:20:54 AM »
Primes are nice, I love them and use them parallel to my zooms.
But as someone suggested before: if IQ is that counts, take a FF first.
My 2 cents.

Borrowed once a 24/1.4II for a weekend. Very good on my 5d2 and the 1d4.
Bad copies exist. The good thing is it is a Canon- Canon combination, so leave this problem to your CPS.
Loosing time once, winning good IQ further on.

Unleash the power of 64bit with Win7.
You will enjoy it.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7D vs 5D3 noise @ ISO400
« on: March 31, 2013, 12:17:29 PM »
So the sensor of the Sony RX100 is a very good piece of engineering. It has only 1/7 of the sqare size of an FF, and shows very good results, when I have to push them because of underexposure.
I had an 50D as a backup to my 5D2, didnt want to use it on higher ISO than 800....
I would like to see a better APS-C sensor from Canon, doenst matter if it has 12, 16 or 24 MP......
