I Concur. He hasn't posted any photography on a photography forum. :P

It isn't, primarily, a photography forum, it is, predominantly, a one photography (and video) manufacturer equipment rumor forum. And there is nothing wrong with that, though like eml58 points out, if you are not a Canon aficionado there would seem to be several billion things better served with your time.

I am a frequent illustrative image poster, but that is all I am interested in displaying at CR. All power to those that do propagate the various lens and body specific image galleries though, there are some truly superb images here.

Yes, I come here for the rumors first, gear talk second, humor 3rd, photos by the way and last but not the least the cynicism.  Serious!

You mean you watched it right through to the end ?!  ???

If you have not watched the second half, you missed most of the fun.

I had watched just the start but based on your post watched it through. Thank you. She is incredible. I suspect her dinner will be putting a packet in the micro.

Should I buy the 50mm F1.0L now or wait?



They just assume that a bigger lens and better camera are going to take better pictures. 

It is amazing how "ordinary people" can intuitively understand basic things about photography which we debate here to death!  ;)

hahahahaha. well said!

But it's only half a stop better if the camera detects the light. Other's have commented (and my tests have confirmed) that my 1D4 and 5D2 cannot actually see light from a cone that's faster than f/1.6. This does vary from lens to lens - some modern lenses are telecentric so that all the light gets to the photodiode. However, the 50/1.0 comes from the film era and is not telecentric. Ergo, NO fast aperture, NO narrow DoF and NO benefit.


A thought crossed my mind.  Maybe these folk asking about your camera aren't really all that interested, a bit like the weather, they are making small talk because its a polite thing to do.  A few responses on the autistic spectrum here.

So true.

I have a 60D and shoot on full auto = I'm a twat (cos some things never change!)

at least I don't shoot on full auto   ::) ;D

Shooting mode is irrelevant. The end result is.

People! Calm down. This is a fun thread....

Hugs and kisses is correct.

Masai Mara

Lovely Shot Sanj, hard to get these Guys into anything that resembles Photogenic I feel, but the background in this Image does this a treat.

Love the Masai Mara, heading back 2014 for the Crossing on the Masai Mara side, did it mostly from The Serengeti this Year but missed the Crossing action by 3 days, still a great Tanzania experience though.

8 Pages and counting.

Yeah Eml the landscape where I took the giraffe photo was very nice. Best wishes for your next trip. :)

I'm more curious about the sensor performance, particularly its low ISO dynamic range. If Canon shows no improvement in this department, it's unlikely we'll see anything better coming out of Canon sensors in the next 4 to 5 years.

This is a good example of why we should be oh so concerned about sales figures.  Canon has been behind in low ISO dynamic range throughout their sensor lineup for a few years now, and it hasn't hurt their dSLR sales. 

If the roof on your house looks to be in excellent shape and doesn't leak, would you replace it?  Unlikely…if it ain't broke, don't fix it.  From Canon's perspective, their sensors 'ain't broke'.

This is an ostrich act of not facing reality by digging its face in sand. Canon sensor is certainly broke after comparing it with the D800 and Rx1. Like it or not.

"Broke" would indicate a malfunction, as in "broken." This is certainly NOT the case...Canon's sensors are not broken. The function perfectly fine, they produce photos of superb quality, and they meet the needs of the majority of photographers. I think the term your looking for is "not the best". Canon sensors are certainly "not the best" after comparing with the D800 and Rx1. But they certainly are not "broke."

Agree. 'Broke' was just a term being used to indicate it requiring improvement.

Well done Wade!
Would you be kind enough to share technical details?

I use 5d3 and will use it but how am I wrong in wishing it's sensor gets better?

Your portfolio is stunning. It appears your Canon gear is serving you very well :)

Hahahaha. Thx! Yes it sure does! I love my 1dx for speed and responsiveness. 5d3 is great too but I do not get to use it much as it is perpetually rented out. :)

For those who want better sensor from Nikon and Sony, Please go and buy Nikon/Sony. Then the sales for Canon will going down and force them to produce better camera.

Yes, people are doing this already. I have spent last few weeks doing EXTENSIVE research for my next camera which is small, has high IQ at high ISO and zeroed down to Fuji XE2 with a 1.4 lens. There is nothing from Canon or Nikon which comes c l o s e. Sad but true.
