You look cool indeed....

I do wonder, without much knowledge of the assignment you were on, if you really needed so much gear. I am sure it slows you down and for sure prevents you from getting quick low angles where you need to be on your elbows or knees.

Mega pixels counts will increase over time. Even if it is small amounts.

My take on menu systems is that it does not matter. It is all about getting used to. People use different phones, cameras, computer operating systems etc and get used to the menu with use and a study of the manual.

Onces they are used to it they get by just fine. But when they change device they have to re-learn and feel that the earlier system was easier until they time they learn the new system and are comfortable again.

I bought it because:
I got it for $1000 cheaper. PLUS  1Battery 2 128gb CF cards and an onboard monitor thrown in for free!!
I also got a confirmed 40 days rental Feb end onwards. Will also eventually sell my 1dx. These factors made it possible for me.

I am shooting a feature in Italy Feb end onwards on Alexia as DOP. The 1dC will work as my second camera. Works well for me as I will use (and get rental) on my Zeiss 15, 35 and 135.

EOS Bodies / Re: Is ARRI Canon's Biggest Obstacle in Professional Cinema?

ARRI is not Canon's biggest obstacle. CANON is Canon's biggest obstacle. There is still a huge demand for film and Canon don't make any film cameras. it's that simple.


Thank you so much! Love your passion!

EOS Bodies / Re: New EOS-1 Camera Information [CR1]

The 1DX is a GREAT camera. I drooled over it via the youtube video and a Canon rep demo'ing it. I too bought into 'the unification of the 1-series'. It sort of makes sense.

But as a fashion and portrait photographer, I'm more interested in dynamic range vs. speed. And at the end of the day and looking at images, it doesn't offer any improvement over my 5DMKII. I think the 1DX is a big jump for sports/action photographers. But fashion and portrait? Nada.

There are lots like you...

I am sure we can expect a very potent sensor in this camera. I believe Canon has been working on this for a long time, but been waiting to release it. I would be very surprised if they came out with just a tiny step on the evolution ladder from a 1DsIII or the 1DX.
I am really looking forward to a really high resolution, high DR body, to complement the 1DX, which I am sure will be my preferred action and low light body also after this new one comes along.

History points us to other direction I think. It has mostly been 'small increments'

I will always welcome more DR, but even when the day comes when it's possible to lift the shadows by 5 stops, I will still take the same approach to shots like this and bust out the monolights. If I have to choose between good light and lifting shadows, I'll go with good light every single time.

Shhhh. You will soon create enemies here.

I've marveled at your portfolio quite often, and considering the types of subjects that you shoot, if you stated that more DR would be beneficial for the subjects that you shoot, I would certainly wouldn't doubt it. Cars don't care if you flash 2000ws worth of monolights in their faces. I wouldn't dare do the same with zebras and rhinos who would most definitely get scared off, or lions that might get pissed off and decide to eat me :o

Hahahaha. :)
DR helps people when they cannot fill in with bounce boards or flash, or bracket exposures and fix in post because of handheld situations or moving subjects. I believe there will be lots of such photographers.
DR is not relevant when shooting in controlled situations. I believe there are fewer such photographers.
(But of course you know this and have stated it above).

Pls be clear: I am not complaining about current DR in Canon sensors, just saying that better DR would be nicer.

Great work buddy.

If these were my photos I would ease out on post work a bit as they looking overdone to me. But if that is they way your artistic expression goes, then push it more.
In particular I am referring to tints and excess chroma that you using.

Keep it up!
