Invent one and wealth will be yours.  For now, sensors only detect luminance (brightness)  Thats why the Bayer type filter is used, it allows a color image to be constructed from a B&W image.

oh.. i didn't know that

that makes sense - thx for that explanation

shot of a lifetime!


here's a bigger question... WHY even have these "bayer" filters - sensors made of an array that detect single colors that require "interpolation" (and thus a bunch-o-math that eats up cpu processing power)

imagine an array made of sensors that can detect "all" colors

problem solved!

(non-scientist here - but not afraid to ask "why not?!")

I don't understand?

what does whining about your situation on here do?

canon doesn't send employees here to monitor the forums to gauge public sentiment..

WE can't do anything for you..

good points here

I would only add the mode dial lock

best 100 bucks I've spent for the 7D

I can confirm the 10-22, 17-55

I also use the 70-200/2.8ii


but im curious.. how did you keep the lens from icing up?

if you use DPP, it has been updated

apparently canon has made changes to the picture style files - this updated addresses that


EOS Bodies / Re: Your thoughts on M-RAW vs RAW in 1DX vs 5D3
« on: December 07, 2012, 03:04:46 PM »
i "like" the idea of shooting RAW - for all the flexibility it gives

i "like" the idea of smaller file sizes - that eases my concern about how much HD space i'm going to be taking

and as someone who shoots sports/action (primarily triathlons/ironmans with thousands of competitors and shooting in high-speed continuous in bursts with a 1DX) this is definitely a concern -- as well as the very practical consideration of CF card size - a fast body such as the 1DX requires a fast card (expensive) and also requires more capacity (expensive)

so the appeal of mRAW and sRAW is real

but (!) the best features of DPP (DLO, aberration corrections, etc) are not available to mRAW and sRAW formats

consequently, i am constrained to the RAW format if i want to have the full flexibility and the features of DPP

i shoot with two cards - one shooting full RAW, the other shooting small JPG (the small card is actually an eye-FI card that is paired to my nexus7 tablet - this allows me to upload a good photo to social networking sites as needed or view an image in a large format easily)

oh yeah.. should've said ^^^ gotta have that setting that neuro just mentioned

you could get used to moving the selected AF point around w/ the two dials

or you could select zone AF points - when i want to have rapid AF point movements, that's what i do -- if you're at center, one multi-select button press takes you to TOP/LEFT/RIGHT/BOTTOM

but my default setup is like this.. i have three fixed AF points always ready to go (note.. back button AF and AI Servo modes) - main back-button AF point selects an upper-left AF point - the * (asterisk - AE start) button is programmed to an AF point on the other side of the display (upper right) ---- and the MFn2 button is programmed to the center AF point - its set as the "open" AF selection mode, the default position though is the center AF point, i can move it w/ the multiselect button in the back

and i use the expansion point AF mode - so that whole "area" (AF point - failing that, any of the cluster around it) is available to AF on

at any time i've got three AF points available to me

..and yes - thats on the 1dx

that lens is on my 1dx at least half the time - i stow it in my backpack attached that way

if you look on CanonPriceWatch.com at the historical prices, there's a down-spike this time last year - that's when i bought mine B)

what neuro said,  plus.....

three thoughts...

-zone AF (I like that sometimes - with one click you move AF a whole quadrant)

-you can register an AF point

-you can assign an AF point to the MFn2 button

here's what I do..

I have 3 AF points available - an upper left exp point assigned to the back button AF point, an upper right AF point registered to the metering  start button (star next to the AF-ON button),  and the center AF button assigned to MFn2

at any given time I have single-button access to focus on left-, right-, or center-AF points

also, customized for horiz and vert orientations
