EOS Bodies / Re: New Full Frame Camera in 2014? [CR1]
« on: March 27, 2014, 01:45:39 AM »
This actually makes sense to me, although I've been skeptical about Canon's "need" to release a high megapixel full frame camera.

I'll go back to a prediction I make quite a while back – I can see Canon releasing a "5D HD" that offers a pixel density somewhere in the same neighborhood as the 7D (46 mp), perhaps a little less. Same body, same basic functionality (with a slower frame rate likely) just a new sensor and maybe a little faster processor.

It would give customers a choice, but keep their production costs down since many of the components could be shared by both bodies.  Canon has see the D800 sales figures, so they know that high megapixels aren't in huge demand, but they probably also know there is a small subset of customers that will pay a premium for more resolution. Give them what they want, but keep the production costs down.

hi, im not sure where you get your viewpoint. i shoot advertising images and i do use a 5dmk3, but the files are almost always on the edge of usability. if there is cropping, or shadows pulled up(or sky recovered) the canon is terrible. the only reason i haven't changed systems is that i shoot with a very shallow dof and the canon has the best lenses for this.
I have tested the d800e and i have brought a sony a7r and in every test i have done with the cameras together the sony sensor absolutely eats the canon. i find the latitude of the nikon and sony cameras closer to my p65+ (but obvious less res) but even better with the darks getting pulled up.
i don't know about the amateur market, but a large promotion of the professional advertising market (not the editorial or sports) has moved to the nikon d800e from the canon and even a lot have dropped medium format for nikon. i could list a dozen photographers in the top of their fields in the world now shooting with nikon. and thats just out of the few advertising photographers i know personally.

im not saying the nikon is the best for usability- the canon has the best interface, lenses and AF, but the file itself is very disappointing. i say this from a lot of canon file experience (I've shot at least 400,000 files with the 5dmk3 in the last few years). the 5dmk3 is a bit of a love hate camera for me..

i really hope canon answers with a better file (latitude wise)- higher MP (which is badly needed for my market) so i can throw away slow, difficult medium format and only need one camera for everything i shoot.

I know 4 personally. And I do not know many photographers...

More to come...

I'd hope so, because anything is more than the nothing we've seen so far...   :P

Even you now Neuro? Even you?

I will take criticism openly. I am here for that.

Your photo has a calming influence on me...the scene is so peaceful.   I like it.

Question, is that smoke in the background? 

Take care,
North

Hi North.
Yes, that is smoke. :)
I burnt some leaves trying to create a shaft but the sun was already too high...
Thx!!

more usefull than these focus ring bracelets.

but if i want a great photography t-shirt i design one myself.  ;D

And print it where? Actually question is: print it where there is proper colors, quality and durability?

I do not want to argue, but for me this seems bit irrelevant. If I am shooting anything with the slightest movement or if I am causing movement by hand holding, I need to be on servo.

If my camera is on tripod and the subject absolutely still, I would use live view to focus.

For my kind of photography: wildlife, street and such I can not be not on servo.

One shot and on top of that center focus point, do not know if that would work for me.

Lenses / Re: 16-35 II vs what?

I had the lens for a year. Did not like the corner sharpness at all when full open. Sold it.

lol...Rusty, you are one funny dude!  ;D


You think that's funny, check out what I changed my signature to today!   Bwaa Ha Ha!!   ;D


Funny...and I'm sure we would all agree that whatever Surapon said, it surely would be very respectful, friendly, polite, and helpful! :)

That is true. But I find you very helpful and polite as well!

And yes, if one did feel the need to have one shot, this is a great firmware update. Very thoughtful of Canon.
I am telling myself: If Canon thought there was a need to do this, then one shot must be 'sharper'.

Now I understand. Clearly understand. Thx much ALL!!!

However I am very surprised that servo will not focus on still objects. Everyone is saying that. But that has not been my experience so far. Or perhaps I have not noticed it. Hmmm.

Eml: You not only photograph beautifully but write beautifully as well.

Thanks for all the replies. The penny still fails to drop. It will one day, I hope. Currently either I do not know something or brain cells not working.
Perhaps soon I will have an 'ah ha' moment. Waiting.

sanj....your wrote "either i don't know something or"...could it be that you don't know that one shot is better(sharper)than servo for "non action" shots?   I'm sure you know this but I just thought i would point it out just in case. (i'm sure you do know because i've seen your awesome images)

the main reason for wanting the set up steve describes is to quickly and more easily switch from servo to one shot by having the buttons right next to each other.  ("af-on button" and "*" button)   (servo and one shot)

Northstar: No I did not know that 'one shot' is sharper than servo for still objects. I thought is was about getting focus, not the way one got focus. And I believe that once I get focus and I remove the thumb from the back focus, I am as good as 'one shot'. Am I wrong?

Having said all of this, I am positive that I am missing something... I will get it one day and go 'yeyyyy'.

Realize that the safari will end but the camera will remain with you. So choose the best camera, and not a camera just for this trip. Go with latest technology and select 5d3.
