I've notice that there are a few 7D extremists around here that will put a Jihad on you if you even insinuate that another camera might be better at something, even if you know from first hand experience. Love your equipment, but be realistic about it.

*posted with -84 Karma*  ;D ;D ;D
ROFL Jihad Durka Durka
I had to give you another +1 to help offset your jihad
LOL +1 to you both!

EOS Bodies / Re: Do you think the 5D II will stay around
« on: February 28, 2012, 11:52:56 AM »
Depends on pricing. If the 5D3 comes in at 3.5k then yes, I think there will be demand for the 5d2 @ 2k.  I am one of those. I want to see some basic ML features (5 AEB etc) incorporated into the 5d3, if not I will consider a 5d2 with ML.... still on the fence.

However if the 5d3 is priced at 2.7k then the 5d2 might be discontinued.

I really hope that there will be obvious improvements in the 5d3, since it is approx 4 year newer tech.... it just has to. Right?  ???
I agree - if mk3 comes in at 3.5K  Canon will probably need an entry level FF which could well be the mk2...

michaelrcruz, thank you for sharing the images! Much appreciated! +1 to you... :)

Would you be able to confirm whether the rumored specs are correct?

I think we will see another FF this year but probably in Photokina... So another vote for 650D

Lenses / Re: Pricing of the New Lenses

way too expensiv.

Why should Canon worry about gearing professional equipment towards consumers?  Any L lens or 5 series body is professional equipment, I don't think Canon is concerned with cheapening a camera to satisfy the average consumer..  The sensor is the most expensive part of the 5DII, so until they get cheaper im sure ff cameras will stay pricey.

I'm going to guess that the majority of L lenses is not bought by "pro's" but rather by avid hobbyists or whatever you want to call most of us.  If they priced all lenses so that only pro's and very rich people could buy them, they would lose a lot of business.  They're kind of heading that way it seems...

Also, I was under the impression that Canon did have an expressed strategy of promoting APS-C shooters to FF which does not seem to add up with the latest pricing....

I just hope its pretty close to the 1dmk4 if not better.... I shoot alot of concerts, weddings, and sports.... This camera sounds like the holy grail... (to me at least)

useable iso 6400-12800 should be standard.

The 5D MK II is already better at high ISO than the 1D MK IV, so thats a safe bet.  Full frame has a considerable advantage over crop sensors in low light.

How does that work?????
5dII max ISO is 6400
1D4 max ISO is 12800

Please explain

Lower noise at high ISO, not max ISO - at 6400 for instance, 5D mk2 has less noise than 1D mk4 (if I am not mistaken, the difference is half a stop or so)

Canon General / Re: Should photographers hibernate?
« on: February 24, 2012, 04:07:17 AM »
I do shoot less during the winter but no hibernation, instead I sit next to the stove and spend time in CR forums  ;D 

Ahven, that is a very nice shot!

May the cameras be for free and all the money to be made on lenses (of which I already have a few)  ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: March 2, 2012 The Day for an Announcement?
« on: February 22, 2012, 12:33:48 PM »
Will it be available by first part of May?

Thanks, I needed a laugh to brighten my morning.   :P

We'll have to wait and see if Canon announces an expected availibility.  Then add two months.  Then one more.  Then factor in limited initial supply and heavy pre-order demand.  Maybe you can open the box on Christmas...

Haha.  I remember when the 5d2 was announced, there was like a 3 months wait list at my local camera shop.  And even with that, people who had money to plunk down immediately and pre-paid were bumped to the top of the line and others who wanted to pay at the time of delivery had to wait after that.  You could also have gone the adorama/bh photovideo, but you never really know where you stand and have to wait by your in-box/doorstep hoping your camera arrived/shipped/delivered.  All the things we have to look forward to.

LOL! indeed! Before the journalists have gotten their 1DX's for the Olympics, we can probably forget about availability of 5D series... It would be very nice to have the cam available the day after announcement though   :D

EOS Bodies / Re: 5d Mark iii price?
« on: February 21, 2012, 03:06:48 PM »
And of course, for poor bastards like myself who live in a country whose currency has collapsed in recent years, the 5D3 will cost two or three times what the 5D2 cost here originally.   So, stop complaining  ;)

Or if you live in a country like Norway, where the Krone is very strong, but we just REALLY like high prices nonetheless :P
Just took a look at . For the 5d2 price there,  you can probably take a flight down to Germany, buy a 5D2 and go back and have some money remaining in the pocket...  :o

Also, I do imagine Olympic games were one of the considerations for 1DX - more aimed at photojournalism...

Big difference with the 450 is depth.
It can hold bodies with the grips attached (or 1 series body) and still fit in nicely. As it is deeper - all the pockets can hold more and more lenses can fit in vertically.

I've got the 450 and it does the job nicely.

I have been considering the 450. Wondering if you've used it for flights. Any issues to get it as cabin luggage?

Apologies if this has already been questioned and answered. But what are those little yellow boxes for? I can't find anywhere on this site that gives me a clue.

It's kind of a classification that also shows with the camera model that shows under your nick. The more the posts, the more the boxes, the better the model :) at least to my knowledge...
