Technical Support / IS to control SUBJECT motion???
« on: January 07, 2013, 03:26:36 AM »
I was reading up on Sony RX1 specs at BH Photo and came across something of super interest to me. It says that they have a technology incorporated which helps reduce BOTH camera and subject motion!

"SteadyShot also helps to eliminate motion blur when your subject or the camera moves during image capture."

Is this some sort of new technology that you all are aware off that I missed? As I thought IS is only for camera shake.

Thx for any thoughts.

Lenses / Bokeh confusion.
« on: December 27, 2012, 07:02:39 AM »
Hello learned friends.
I recently did a job for a client who wanted me to take pictures to sell land/second homes in his farmland.
I am attaching two photos: Bath Tub and Glasses.
I like the bokah on the shot with the glasses but somehow do not like the way the sand is going out of focus in the bath tub shot.
Is it me of does anyone else also find it unpleasant?
Tech info (same for both shots!) 70-200 II f2.8 @200mm.

Lenses / Lens checking methods 24-70II
« on: December 15, 2012, 09:00:36 AM »
Hello experts.

I just bought 24-70II and Zeiss 15mm. Both will reach me from USA on 19th. Am excited!

Various reviews mention that they had 'issues' with their 24-70 II. What procedures do you recommend for me to check if the lens is working properly? I have never 'checked' a lens before so all advice is appreciated.

Friends I have learnt a lot from Canon Rumors and continue to learn regularly.

At the same time I am looking out for other forums and websites where I could learn photography further.

Any favorites? Any suggestions?


Canon General / Amazon policies.
« on: November 06, 2012, 11:57:33 AM »
I wanted to order the 600 at Amazon and give them a shipping address later. Am attaching the online chat. Am not satisfied.

I want to buy a lens: Canon 600mm II right now. BUT I want you to hold on to it and ship it later when I send you an address. Is that acceptable?
Saket :Hello, my name is Saket. I'll be happy to help you today.
Saket :I am really sorry It will not be acceptable but You can place the order and You will not face any problem
Me:How can I place an order without a shipping address? Thx
Saket :I am sorry but You can use any friend address to place the Order as the deals and the price which is reflected on the site are subjected to change '
so I am not able to do promise for that
Me:Ah. See I am ready to buy it now. Pay for it in full. And then later give you an address to send it to.
Saket :SANJAY ,How can be this possible when you place the order It goes for shipping and the item for which you place goes for packing and then it goes for delivery
so It will not be possible to hold the package
Me:Ok thanks...

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 1dx snug cover
« on: October 13, 2012, 01:19:32 AM »
Am looking to buy a snug cover for 1dx but cant find one. Any clues?
This is what Delkin told me: (I bought cover for 5d3 from them.)

Hi Sanjay

       Thank you for interest and inquiry regarding our professional line of Snug-It protective skins.  I am sorry to inform you that we don’t carry a snug-it for the 1DX camera and don’t have future plan for it as well.  The 1DX camera is very expensive and very few customers have that camera.  Most of our snug-it’s are designed for more affordable SLR cameras that have a demand in the market.  If have any further inquires please feel free to contact us with any questions.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / "Advantage in resolution"
« on: July 21, 2012, 10:01:22 AM »
This may be a dumb one for most of you all but I am trying to learn this concept, so if you can pls find a moment to share your knowledge.

I keep reading that Canon 5d3 has "advantage in resolution" compared to 1dx.
What does it exactly mean? That we can crop more? Or something else.

Would love to learn this and did not find much in Google.


EOS Bodies / Cancelled 1dx pre order.
« on: July 12, 2012, 04:03:21 AM »

And the color resolution chart on the review page shows there is no real IQ advantage to 1dx over 5d3 to MY EYE.

Will miss the extra 6 fps. :( Rest of the features do not warrant spending this money to ME.

EOS Bodies / Unfair Dealers.
« on: July 08, 2012, 02:00:39 PM »
Have been monitoring the shipments of 1dx and 5d3 and the responses of sales people like "when you had ordered does not relate to where you stand on shipment queue." AND the BIG one "Our shipping queue is confidential."

All this points clearly to my mind that all is not fair and some people get their gear before others... Anytime anything is hidden, it has a reason to be hidden. Generally the reason is unfair.

There are some people who mention the dealer in their websites and promote them in other manners. Perhaps they get priority?

EOS Bodies / Skin cover for 5d3 / 1dx
« on: July 05, 2012, 09:50:33 AM »
Would anyone know if skin covers for either of these cameras are available anywhere? I searched and failed.

EOS Bodies / 1dx in India

EOS Bodies / 1dx Japan site
« on: June 20, 2012, 02:01:34 AM »
Today is 20th so I checked Canon Japan website to see if they had updated the release date which earlier was marked for today.

The date has vanished.

I google translated this: "EOS-1D X Niokimashite new product, currently, has received a very large number of orders, the period of time, your time will be charged before delivery of goods. We sincerely apologize to our customers is that the very We apologize for any inconvenience. So we strive to improve this situation as soon as possible, the item can be delivered promptly to our customers, We look forward to your understanding."

Damn. 'Understanding' is becoming tougher at least for me... So wanted it for my 35 days Africa trip... :(
