Lenses / Re: Canon 24-70 f/4L IS disappointing?
« on: July 26, 2014, 02:18:18 AM »
I can't understand why Canon would persist to make F4 lenses, specially ones that are designed to be upgrades (Fisheye 8-15mm f4).

Probably the most pointless aperture setting there is.

Huh?

EOS Bodies / Re: High Megapixel EOS on the Way as Mentioned by Canon
« on: July 24, 2014, 01:49:41 AM »
no news here: "we look forward to the advent of high-resolution model of the EOS".  We are all looking forward to that.  This poor guy works for Canon and he is looking forward to the same thing we are.

Pretty much my thoughts.

What?!!!

That there is heresy! How dare you blaspheme and validate Nikon's 36MP D800/D810 or Sony's cameras?

You should be saying that a high MP will be hard to work with, your computer is not fast enough, storage cards too small, pixels will be smaller and noisier, etc.
Exactly!
Everyone knows that a high megapixel Nikon is the devil's spawn, while a high megapixel Canon will be a godsend.....

WELL SAID!!

Balaji: Very nice photo. And I do not agree with Mackguyver on the crop bit. What he says is generally the rule but I am not sure if it works for this picture.

Lenses / Re: Safari 300 2.8 Mkii or 200-400 1.4x

Is the 200-400 not an obvious choice? I do not understand the question.

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 16-35 F/4L IS -- Reviews are trickling in...
« on: July 17, 2014, 12:50:04 AM »
For those testing the IS, are you half-pressing the shutter (or pressing AF-ON if you use BBF) and then letting the IS system operate for ~0.5 s to fully stabilize the image?  I've often found that if you simply press the shutter on an IS lens, you get a shot that's not much better than no IS.  Here are some tests I did with the 100L.


Thx much for this.

Lenses / Re: Year of the lens....a joke....?
« on: July 15, 2014, 11:19:05 PM »
I've been holding out for Canon's supposed 50mm IS and possibly even an 85 IS.

We're over half way into 2014, I just may have to buy glass from a different manufacturer :/

Any word?

16-35 f/4 IS makes it the year of the lens!

Yes.

Technical Support / Re: CF CARD speed question. Am ignorant.

Interesting fact you point out and I am sure it has value.

BUT you must consider real life situation in Africa. The exhausted photographer at end of day empties out several cards (while doing other things like charging so many batteries) he may not have energy to low level format cards. Just a quick format and get ready for next day.

Yes, if the difference was more that 5 photos before buffering or more than half second before buffering, I would take the time out to low level format.

Technical Support / Re: HOW TO USE THE NEW BATTERIES ?
« on: July 15, 2014, 01:12:57 AM »
Dear friend Surapon. Unlike wine, the batteries deteriorate over the years, and keep them without use does not prevent them from deteriorating. Specifically, the Ni-MH batteries should be stored discharged, to prevent premature aging. The exception of the great ENELOOP, which has a special chemical composition for longer life.

As you have 4 batteries, you can number each one and rotate to all be in use. If you think you can take months without using a particular battery, keep it uncharged to preserve it.

Wine goes bad too without proper storage!

Surapon:
You must rotate all 4 batteries. If you have the possibility of putting 2 away, then you do not really need them. In that case, next time, buy only 2 and replace them when they die with fresh batteries.

Mackguyver our tests yield similar results. :)
