Canon General / CF CARDS
« on: June 11, 2014, 12:46:59 AM »
Are CF cards really on their way out? Can smaller, flimsier SD take their place? Why do I keep hearing people talk like this?

Pls advice. I am heavily invested in CF cards. Will they all be obsolete in coming years?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 7d2 IQ thoughts.
« on: May 26, 2014, 05:31:39 AM »
Most of you have been using Canon for long and have been following its progress.

I realize 7d2 it will be fast, responsive etc etc. but do you think the IQ will be noticeably better than Canon's latest 70D say at ISO 1200?

I am wondering when (and if ever) the latest crop cameras will be able to compare with 5d2. Is 6 years enough for technology to reach a point where new crop camera's catch up to full frame?

I would be very happy if the new 7D2 quality would be close to 5d2. Wondering if that is too much to hope for considering the frame size difference?

Camera Body Gallery / The magic of 1dx 12 fps

1dx's 12 fps make certain shots a possibility which other camera's would struggle to get.

Please post any such photos you may have.

Here is one of mine. There were 3 of us on the ground with 1dx, 5d3 and 7d. But only the 1dx got this photo...

Technical Support / Anyone know about CAM RANGER?

Guys would this be the best way to remotely control my 5d3? It is $300. Would this be the best investment? I believe 6D can be triggered and CONTROLLED remotely without any device. If that is the case, I may just buy a 6d as that works better for my needs. Pls help.

Technical Support / Best Possible IQ
« on: December 10, 2013, 06:53:38 AM »
I am super excited. I have been asked to take a picture for a large coffee table book and the photo will be a two page spread. Within the next three months I am going to be shooting a landscape photo of an old religious city. I am supposed to take a photo in early morning light on which the client will do a LOT of post work - add and remove elements, color correct etc.

My brief is to shoot this on the best possible format.

My questions:
1. What should I use? Obviously it should be large format but since I do not know anything about large formats, 'backs' etc., where do I start figuring out how to proceed?
2. Which lens would translate into a 25/35mm of our full frame Canon? I would shoot at f11 so do not need a lens which is great wide open.
3. Would my heavy Gitzo and Arca be stable enough for this or I would need something else?

Above all I need to know which is the best large format system available today to shoot at ISO 100/125.

I want to stay digital and not shoot on film.

All help sincerely appreciated.

Canon General / TEN YEARS FROM NOW.
« on: November 25, 2013, 10:18:33 AM »
It is a bit quiet here and until the 7d2 or the high mp camera here is something for us.
I think it may be fun to predict what camera technology will be like in December of 2023.
Here are my few predictions:
1. DSLR's will be used only by top end sports/wild life shooters.
2. Mirror less would have evolved and be thriving.
3. Point and shoot would be dead.
4. Canon cameras will have 4 stops better ISO.
5. There will be lenses with 6 stop IS.
6. Canon and Nikon would share equal percentage of the market.
7. Canon will have 65 mp full frame camera.
8. The fast version Canon camera will shoot 18 fps.
9. DR will be around 16 stops.
10. 1d form factor will stay.

We all need to put our thoughts down by early next year and then look at this ten years from now and tickle ourselves.
