Lenses / Re: 35mm f/1.4L II rumors?
« on: April 03, 2012, 05:50:22 PM »
neuro, what could be improved on the current 35L? I love mine and I use it wide open 99.9% of the time.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5D Mark III - Price Drop Details

If you wait for a price drop, that wait will turn in to the wait for the 5D4.

EOS Bodies / Re: Thoughts of Gizmodo today - pretty balanced
« on: April 03, 2012, 05:34:24 PM »
I thought Kai's DigitalRev review of the D800 seemed to implicitly state this, namely that the D800 files are so large that it is not entirely practical as a walk around camera.  The Ryan Brenizer review effectively stated the same thing because he takes 250K pictures per year, which is not feasible with 70MB file sizes.

Assuming he saves the jpegs for quick proofing; thats 25 TB of disk space per year...  :o

AKA, 1tb every two weeks, approximately.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mk iii Availablility What does it mean?
« on: April 03, 2012, 05:18:44 PM »
Thanks for that - there is hope then. I dont live in the US but i am planning a trip with a 2 week window and this purchase is one of the reasons for the trip. I need to ensure that its instock before i buy.

Before you leave call BH and ask them to hold it, I'm sure they'll want payment then too, but then it'll be there for you when you arrive.

EOS Bodies / Used 50D, is it worth it?
« on: April 03, 2012, 05:16:20 PM »
What's a reasonable price to pay for a single owner 50d body with 18k on it, with canon grip, and original battery, charger, and all boxes? 

Is $549 too much?

You should call BH and ask them. 

652
You're shooting in RAW and converting in DPP, right?


653
You should keep the 24-105, 70-200, 580 flash, and 40d; then buy a 27" iMac with a 2tb drive and shoot like mad.  I find most people have cheap $99 monitors to view their photos.  An iMac is a great and easy to buy system, there are better monitors out there for lots of monies, but the iMac package is hard to beat.

Lenses / Re: Whats a good walk around lens to put on a new 5d Mk iii
« on: April 02, 2012, 10:38:35 PM »
F1.2 and you pick the focal length. 

655
The only way you will know is to shoot till its dead. See how many shots you get. You should be able to shoot all day on one batter for stills. For video. Go buy 5 more batteries

For video with an IS lens, make that 5 a 7.

EOS Bodies / Re: Best 5d3 custom function AF point selection quick!
« on: April 02, 2012, 10:17:00 PM »
And if you push the multi-controller straight in, if you had moved the center AF point to another position, it brings it right back to the center. 

Yes, and if you push straight in again it goes back the the AF point you were just using. 

657
Also, that includes a little video shooting, but nothing big.

658
I can get 700+ shots before I'm under 10% on my battery, and I'm still playing in the menus a lot as it's a new camera.  The shot total per charge and percent is shown in the battery info in the menu.

Really, this should be the default, not the option.

EOS Bodies / Best 5d3 custom function AF point selection quick!
« on: April 02, 2012, 02:32:58 PM »
Go to the CF menu, second one, custom controls.  Then, go to the one in the right column, at the bottom, called Multi-Controller AF point direct selection.  Its default is off, hit it and select AF point direct selection.  Now focus the camera and move the Multi controller (joy stick), you can select the AF point with out going in to a menu! 

If this has been covered, great, but I just noticed it from a post to something in another thread.


Note, I only use spot AF and have the other modes turned off.
