How long until we hear about people who switched to Nikon wanting to switch back to Canon.....  :P

yes you have to sit the dry years out. :)

Anyone been over at nikonrumors and hear what they complain over? It seems that the guys here love nikon more than they do...

Not if you consider I make 65k a year as a seller in a store... we can always buy half off from the US  :P

a stores sales clerk that makes 65k?
you must have a nice and generous boss then.

One word: Union!

i know a media markt department manager in germany who makes 2100 euro NETTO.
that translates into ~25000 euro a year after tax.

i would really like to know where a simple sales clerk (no offense) in europe makes 65k $ ... not to mention 65k euro....

I meant 65k usd, not euro. That would've been fun! And of course no offense taken, I am a sales clerk by choice, no responsibillty, good money, and I get to talk photogear all day with all sorts of weird, interesting, funny and knowledgable people.

It wouldn't make any sense for Canon to price a DSLR that high.  You might as well buy a used hassy at that price.  I bet it will be under $5000 - if this rumor is true, of course.

well everything is possible.. it could be that this camera even has the rumored square sensor. :)

by the way im speaking from an european viewpoint.
the 1D X costs ~8500$ here already.
so it´s not such a stretch...

Yeah, you guys get screwed.

Grey market, no warranty? Hmmm...pass.

No, I still have one year full warranty. I even used it once to adjust my 300.

Large and heavy 35 L ?? :o

I can almost guarantee that if this camera is launched with a 35 it will be L II.

EOS Bodies / Re: Why are flash sync shutter speeds getting worse?
« on: September 24, 2012, 02:59:07 PM »
For me it isn't about LOW ambient light, it's about HIGH ambient outside i want to underexpose and let my flash work my main subject. And optimal with a 2,8 or faster aperture for shallow dof. I use 2x 580's at near full power and going from 250 to 300th of a second and into highspeed makes it look like my flashes didn't even fire. THAT'S the problem. That and the fact that with sync you can freeze quite a bit of fast action at 300th syncspeed, but very little with 200th.

I think we very safely can say it's both those reasons.

Bigger sensors means the curtain must travel further.

The metering difference I don't get why people are using as an argument when it comes to iso evaluation.

Because the amount of light that gets on the sensor affects the noise level. The ISO doesn't change the amount of light that gets on the sensor. Therefore, identical optical exposures are mandatory. For a scientific test, the ISO has to be changed so that the brightness of the images from both sensors is the same, which means that the displayed ISO value may be different.

Yeah, for a scientific test point. But when metering and shooting a scene it doesn't matter. Less light more noise, but if one camera always meter under it creates noise. And when things happen fast and the metering is off, like with all three 5d's, that underexposes the problem isn't the displayed iso's. The difference is lab tests and how the camera creates the picture.

Guess my reply was censored, well that pretty much sums it up...

I guess that's customfunction (C1) and it's settings are stored from P-mode. I have removed everything else but Av, M, C1 and C2. One set for video and one for bracketing.

The metering difference I don't get why people are using as an argument when it comes to iso evaluation. First off, which metering is more accurate? Absolutely no contest ... and in the X you can offset your 0 ev, mine is at +5/8. I've shot 20k shots on the 5d3 and 11k on the 1d X and the difference is huge in metering precision and noiseperformance. I always need to to adjust the metering back and forth on the 5d to get what I want which really slows down shooting, is very annoying and makes me miss moments. The 1d is consistent no matter what light it's crazy, i hardly ever touch the ev scale.  I guess all the 5d owners don't know or don't want to know and needs to defend their purchase. I too defend the 1d X over the 5d, and i have used them both to the limits. And it just isn't right the difference is minor and not worth the price. It might not be worth it to some people, but the 1d is twice the camera.
