EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Spec List [CR2]

"What the 6d should have been" are we
Somehow missing the fact that the 6d is full frame and the better FF is called 5d3 and the better 5d3 is called 1d X.

The 7d mk2 is a fast camera with advanced AF, sits
Between the 5d3 and the 1dx like the original 7d did between the mk4 and the 5d2.

I would live to see a aps-c with the 61 o
Pt AF, pretty much covering the whole VF, lol.

Lenses / Re: Will Canon step up to Zeiss with a 55mm 1.4L?
« on: February 19, 2013, 06:07:56 AM »
If it's a 50 or 55 I don't care about, but if Canon decided to make a 50mm f1.4 L and it was the size and weight of the 85 1.2 I don't care. I care about them matching the Zeiss f1.4 (which is VERY high up on my list now as I love 50mm) with the AF of the current 50 L.

Canon needs a good 50. Seeing the samples from the Zeiss makes me very excited about it, can I live with MF? Not so sure, I mean, I can shoot a lot with a 50(55) mf, but there's a lot of things I would love to shoot with that IQ, but needing AF.

And to own both the 50 L and the Zeiss 55 f1.4 is an option, but not when I also want a 24-70, since I don't cr@p money...

This is so not great news for them.. I really like that it's in out there though. I would go mental if I found out someone was running around testing my gear before I bought it thinking it was brand new. I could buy a demo-product, but not when it's full retail and nothing is said about it. Really dissapointing stuff..

I can't wait to try this! It looks awesome! If it had AF I would def get one..

I wish it was sealed and that they used white print, because the yellow look cheap and ugly.... Is the canon-version white white prnt perhaps ;D

.. And nothing about the 35 L II, well it's only rumored several times a year for the last better part of a decade.

Does that mean I should turn it off if I never use zone and all 61?

No need to turn it off, but if left on it's not doing anything for you...

Thanks a lot! I was a bit surprised by this, lol. Oh well, the 1dx hardly ever misses anything  for me anyway  ;D

« on: February 13, 2013, 02:02:55 PM »
Really? I thought iTR also worked with 4 and 8 expanded, at least the color tracking?

Nope - 61-pt auto and Zone AF only.  See p.95 of the manual.

Wow... So I haven't even tried color-tracking at all? That is weird because with the 1dx and same settings as the 5d3 with 4 point expansion the 1dx tracks waaay better, and I'm not sure the 50 L benefits from the higher drive power from the bigger battery...

Does that mean I should turn it off if I never use zone and all 61?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Panic button - 1Dx

I have my camera normally in Av mode with a set shutter speed I don't want to go longer than, but I LOVE the recall function , I have set the AElock button to recall because I use af-on to start af operation so they're right next to each other. With normal Av I have my au servo set up to normal movement with no expansion etc, case 1. And on the ae lock button I have the camera set up for fast erratic motion with every setting, faster shutter , actually smaller shutter to give the af a bit more help, 4 expansion, customised case 6 etc. that way I can shoot EVERYTHING without taking the eye off my viewfinder, so all the things I had to change to switch between fast action and more
Normal movement in the menus I can now have active by moving my thumb 5 mm! Best thing ever! I also ha r one of the front custom buttons to switch to one shot when needed. It speeds up the shooting process from 3 minutes to a split second.

I usually say if you see me without the 1d X, it wasn't me. It goes everywhere I go, even if it's a trip to the grocery store, and why not ?

Lighting / Re: Phottix Odin: Inaccuate high-ISO metering problem
« on: February 11, 2013, 03:55:11 AM »
More love for the Odins. Strongly back-lit subjects always threw the infrared Canon flash triggering off, but with the Odins, shooting straight into the sun is no problem.



This is far from a great shot, but I love the convenience of being able to adjust the backlight and fill in groups independently, right at the camera, without having to manually re-adjust the flashes. It's a great way to make an otherwise boring shot not quite as boring :)



The light really lifts the image, care to share your setup for this shot, number of lights and what sorts of modifiers do you use?

The reason I ask is because I saw some similar types of shots and it was listed as bare bulb flash, and I couldn't work how one gets soft light from a small bare buld speedlite (unless bounced at least)

If the 100 L and the 135 and all the nikons survive the heat, then this will too. "Shameless marketing" is much easier to believe.

Physics........................Physics.

Yes, yes, the same physics that says if my lens is melting I'm already inside..

It's face-detection with phase AF.  I find that it works pretty for tracking a person moving through a group.  I have a Servo setting for 'people/events' and I use iTR for that, but not for my wildlife/birds setting.  Note that for iTR to work, you've got to be in 61-point auto selection more for the AF point selection.

Really? I thought iTR also worked with 4 and 8 expanded, at least the color tracking?
