EOS Bodies / Re: 5D MkIII Wake up on Button press
« on: June 27, 2012, 02:10:43 PM »
The real problem with that is that the 5d3 is VERY slow to wake up compared to other Canon's....

EOS Bodies / Re: My 5D mkIII AWB is Warm - Help
« on: June 27, 2012, 06:08:07 AM »
Having used the 5DIII now for a couple of months, I find that the AWB is more accurate (or more naturally pleasing to me) than any of it's predecessors including the 7D. I have always tweaked a percentage of images in post and that's not different, but I find myself tweaking less with the 5DIII. Not sure if 'mixed lighting' is a good indication of good AWB though either?

If it's to warm and your wb-shif is at 0:0, maybe just move it to a cooler setting, no?

And since you shoot raw it's a pretty easy fix in Lightroom.

Have you shot under even light and not all types at the same time? Is it the same?

I shoot raw and shoot with the Color Checker passport which is fantastic for color calibration, but under concert type lightning it won't be of much use as it's vary too much.

trolling detected

There are plenty of  1d X's around, saw a bunch of them at the UEFA European Chamipionship. And they are confirmed shipping, and this site is available in every country on the planet, so that ONE person has gotten a real 1d X and posts it here isn't highly unlikely.

You're the troll.

I'm equally envious of the fact you have a wife that paints the house for you...

Yeah, I agree with that, I absolutely think it's worth the money over the others and of course the only weathersealed.

And yeah, it came to life on the 5d3 compared to the 5d2, BUT it is the hardest canon lens to control. When mastered it still is difficult up close and really not killersharp. Fix the sharpness and af and I'll live with ca and shiftfocus. I don't think that's too much to ask when we compare to it's canon siblings.

I have just about every current AF Canon L prime between 24mm and 300mm. The 35mm f/1.4L and 85mm f/1.2L II are the best for weddings and stay on my cameras as much as possible. I have several friends who have sent their 50mm f/1.2L's back because the autofocus was so inconsistent and it was recommended to me to not purchase that lens so I'm going to pass that recommendation to you. At the moment I just use the 35mm prime and can crop it to around 50mm easily. If I need the extra focal length I just pull out my 85mm f/1.2L II and skip over the 50mm focal length (recommended if you are on full-frame).

I'm anxiously waiting for Canon to come out with a good 50mm lens. This is the weakest focal length in their line up if you ask me.

Also, if the 35mm f/1.4L gets updated with less CA and weather proofing (why does this lens not have this in the first place?) then I'd say the 35mm f/1.4L II is going to be as close to a perfect prime lens as you can get. Image quality is already amazing.

I've been wanting to pull out all of my primes and do a comparison at night time, maybe that can be my next blog entry. Till then here are some samples:

85mm f/1.2L II at f/2.0 http://markwebbphoto.com/weddingportfolio/h3401c75e#h3401c75e

35mm f/1.4L at f/2.5 http://markwebbphoto.com/weddingportfolio/h2027ab87#h2027ab87


50L is a awesome lens. Am I the only one here who got a good copy? I prefer it over the 35mm for its classic focal length. I suppose ive always been a fan of Henri cartier bressons subtle painting like perspective of the 50mm. No tricks, just a normal view.


The normal view you get isn't about the 50 fov, it's about the compression you get at 50mm. But yeah, I love it too!

I think the 50 L is a great 50, but then again, I agree with what's being said, the Canon 50's suck (compared to 35 and 85)...

MY dream 50 is the same color and contrast and size+build of the current 50 L, but with the 24 L II AF, and the 35 wide open sharpness and way less CA. And get rid of the fact it's useless sharp at mfd, but great at 4 feet and beyond.


I disagree, I like all the canon 50mm's. I've used them all before and all have there strengths and weaknesses. The 50L is my favorite 50mm of all time currently and i've used tons of different 50mms on 35mm and medium format 80mm's.


Yeah well, I really like the 50 L too, but are you saying you're happy with sharpness at all distances and CA control? The focus is sluggish compared to the 85, but that's very slow and way too long focal for most of what I shoot, the 35 is precise and fast, but it lacks all the goodiness in color, contrast bokeh of the 50 L, and of course is wideangle with distortion.

To me the 50 focal is perfect for almost everything I shoot, but it's hard to use when I have both the 35 and 85 which are CLEARLY better IQ, in some ways over the 50.

Why can't they make a 50 that is as good as the 85 L or the 35 or the 24 or the 135 ?!

I don't care if it would cost the same as the 85 or if it was as heavy as the 85. I just want a 50 that can easily match the other L-primes, because all of the others are way better overall. And they should put some effort into the 50 as more and more people using FF and the 50 is such a great focal the 85 and 35 just aren't close too.

I got my 580's to sync at 1/400s (with proper SYNC, not Highspeed) with the Flex system from Pocket Wizard, which was frikkin awesome!! The problems was that they were useless in everywhich way when it comes to taking them out of the bag and trying to get them to trigger, plus, the 1/400s HSS was only at 1/1 output. But it worked great and the Odin's doesn't have an option like this at all, and if I go up to 1/400s on them, it's like on camera and every other trigger, you get zero power.

I use to 580's in 60x90 softbox with each it's own CP-E4 pack, and if I go past 1/200s sync, I get no power. I usually use my flashes at near full power, so I don't have anything to work with if I go over to HS.

EOS Bodies / Re: FIRST Video comparison Canon 5D mkIII VS 1D X
« on: June 23, 2012, 06:46:17 AM »
Wow, I get 50 times sharper video with my 5d3, is it Vimeo that is to blame with way to hard compression?

1137
So it doesn't have any option to show the dof below 2,8?

That was one of the reasons I wanted the X and not the 5d3. I guess the 5d3 is giving more and more value for money then, lol.


1138
I'm ready to get a couple off of ebay, but not if it only works on 110 V! The seller isn't answering either, sigh....

1139
try the godox.

works pretty damn good on my 600's; should work perfectly on 580 too.

http://digital-photography-school.com/godox-off-camera-flash-battery-pac-review


Those seem very cool, and I must say, it is tempting to have one pack for each flash for flexibillity even though they're mostly in the same softbox.

Does the charger work from 100-240 V or 110 only?

Thanks big time! I might go for those!

1140
Thanks for your inout, and I have to admit, I couldn't agree more, yeah they're expensive, but it is for a good reason, and hearing your experiences means alot, because I want them to work for a long time!

Seems bh doesn't ship to norway, and I fouynd only two 2x2's on ebay that were new, and here in Norway the 2x2 with two 580 cables are 1007 USD...
