EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Not sure which Canon body to get
« on: April 07, 2014, 04:08:54 PM »
For the uses listed, the 6D is the better choice, budget permitting. 

6D

I was going to say +1, but 6D + 1 = 7D, and that's not what I mean.  ;)

Focal length and aperture are lens properties and the lens does not change no matter what body you put it on!
 
There are a ton of confusing articles that cause confusion  because of the terminology used.  People will glance at that title and become convinced that its true.
 
Where the confusion comes in , is that some assume the same lens to subject distance, while some assume the same composition (move the camera further away).
 
If you move the camera further away to get the same angle of view as FF, then the depth of field is different.  If you keep the camera at the same distance, then the angle of view is different.
 
The focal length and lens aperture never change.

I though so too. But this guy seems to be proving me wrong.

Strange that we suddenly have quite a few first time posters asking the documents to be published or claiming that they've had problems with their gear. :-\ :-X

I do not find an issue with that.

<p>We’re not sure whether or not we’ll post the rest of the internal documents we have in our possession. If you think there’s value in us doing so, <a href="http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=20341.0">please sound off in our forum</a>.</p>

This is a little like the "friend" that has info about your wife's infidelity and is happy to tell you he has the info, but not sure he wants to actually tell you.

Get serious CR Guy, either you have the info, or you don't, you decide with advice from your legal counsel to share the info, or don't.

There's no question anyone that's ever owned a piece of Canon gear wouldn't want this info.

Basically it's called "piss or get off the pot", the whole basis of your starting a thread on this is demeaning, to you.

Well said. If CR does not publish this info I will feel totally let down. Besides why is the site taking itself so seriously? If it publishes known information, what is the issue? I sometimes wonder if CR is even looked at by Canon.

276
Any reason why you would not tell us? I am a member of this forum under the impression that you tell us all you know.

Has there ever been a 7DII release-date related rumour at the CR2 level? (but as they say, sooner or later, it'll eventually be true lol)

Hold on there partner......nobody said anything about a release date.  This is just the announcement.  nobody said anything about release dates...... :) :) :) :)

"Announcement"??

Sanj, it has less color saturation than I like, but the overall composition works pretty well.  I bet you love that Zeiss lens!

As for the sky being blown out...I'm not sure 2 more stops would have gotten it all, but it wouldn't have hurt (also unsure why we'd speculate about it unless someone is suggesting a D800...which I would not...and the D800 isn't quite 2 extra stops anyway, is it?).  The sky isn't all that important to this composition, though.  It's just the way it gets blown out, around the edges of the trees, is not all that pleasant.

I doubt I could have done any better, but what I would have done, would probably be composed differently.  I can only guess.

I do like the wide cinemascope aspect, it works well!  Kind of looks like a still from a video...I know you're a cinematographer, so that is likely where you are coming from here.  I sympathize, I've wanted to make movies since I was a kid!

Carl: Thx.Yep, perhaps little fill light would have helped reduce the overall exposure a bit. But not sure if that would have looked better. I find myself cropping 'cinemascope' kind often... :)

It'll certainly be something "completely different" from other digital MF: it won't exist. Even though Sony appears to be trying the 'scatter gun' approach to camera systems I cannot believe they will want to develop a system that's in a segment of ever decreasing market share and something of a niche area now. They havent been able to make much inroads into the Nikon/Canon upper end of the DSLR market let alone MF.

I think this rumour's about as credible as the Canon MF one  - CR 0.

The only reason the Full Frame vs Crop sensor debate isn't a Medium Format vs Full Frame is because of accessibility.

If Canon were to release a Medium Format solution, complete with new lenses many would drop full frame like a stone. As someone who shoots a H4D50 I can tell you there's no comparison between the two.

It's not even about MP for me either, 18mp is fine. Just massive pixels, large sensor please.

How much ever superior MF may be to full frame, which it must be, I cannot imagine dropping my 1dx. I love its fps and portability compared to MF.
