This time table as a hypothesis just sounds practical in combination how canon would think.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mark III / 6D from India

I think it's still will be released in 2012, heck you check youtube & you notice a lot of people posting up their "5d mkii test video" up so I don't think and hugely believe it wont be released this year :) next year seems the best time and adequate enough not to pee of people who just bought the darn thing this christmas' heck canon has to be nice once in a while, thats why they released the 60d :P in my opinion

so yeah, don't sweat it' its just a big guess as anyone on that website to rattle more traffic to that site.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon t3i or 60D (Articulating Screen)
« on: January 13, 2011, 05:25:26 AM »
I'm looking to buy the new Canon T3i that is rumored to be announced at CP+ in February. I want everything the T2i has and nothing the 60D has except for the articulating screen. What should I do? Should I wait for T3i or buy T2i now?

Buy the 60d, it will be better than the t3i . It makes sense because the 60d is essentially the upgrade version of the t3i

EOS Bodies / Re: all 18MP bodies

 I was hoping about the 80mb write, but i think the new 3.0 sdhc uses 3 more pin, making the 60d not able to use that speed, but still use the card (backward compatible); i said wtf!

the 18mp here it is I finnaly found out whats it for.

PRINTING = 18mp so when you scroll through the different mp sizes on your camera your basically selecting what you want to print size you want. I read actually sraw produces better quality than raw.

Quality = Sensor aps-c & ff is great. the smaller sensors will not have that much quality


so when you read more mp its the ability to print out size wise on paper' i mean do you post the full size online or send that enormous size??

I mean do you post the full size online (whatever site?) even you did lol..well you'd be scrolling for a bit (really long time) in frustation to the right  and  down to the bottom until you got to the center of the picture.

60d = the mix of everything dslr video people been wanting;

but for still pictures, lol If you go hold a 7d at best buy or whatever and press the shutter button, you'll be addicted to that speed; seriously I mean stick a 600x and in 10 seconds your ready to burst throw the whole buffer :P

I honestly don't think one is better than the other; but compliment each other ; kind of like the 7d & 5d mkii

http:///www.armandophotography.net/MVI_8528.MP4 = not the best video example, but a great audio example..nice and clean no post processing with plural eyes + software editor, thats just more work :) plug in mic set the volume & enjoy! Used the mke400 sennheiser more directional in my opinion than the rode

when the 3.0 sdhc standard comes in it will be able to write 80mb, nearly on par with the 600x! the 60d supports theu uhs-1.

the 18mp is basically what current aps-c sensors are maxed out at, while the 5d mkiii everyone is guessing will have more mp because it has a little more space todo so.

 nothing on the fence to be about cr! It's fake when he said no rolling shutter :) oh well did seem  hopeful.

If your going to do a lot of video - heck interviews - commercials - youtube! , straight up the 60d is the camera to go, the articulating lcd, the ability to disable the agc (no more post sync) . I think canon was listening to all the dslr video wants and stuck it on the 60d :) Really good fps, the best self port camera (now its nice to not guess) - Runing behind the camera to see if im in focus in the video..maybe even call it pray & focus video shooting yourself after hitting the rec button - tend to shoot video by myself atm so the ability to see me in focus is a huge deal, using the mke 400 shotgun mic (rode shotgun mic - would have took up too much space, and too obvious) I chose it because vs the rode video mic its much more stronger directional.

In my opinion 60d is a great mix of picture and video just basically placed 7d as the best picture taking camera only video :)

additional reason why the 7d writes the raw images to a cf card, and if you buy the cf 600x your going to be able to shoot faster the files will be written faster..because.. your going to be waiting to fully shoot again even with a sdhc class 10 even, for video the cf vs sdhc is negligle, just those raw write files..now...if you just shoot jpg..well you'll never fill out the buffer (my t2i I can press down that shutter button in jpg and you'll never run out .. PROMISE YOU) same goes for 60d..but raw writing power..7d wins because of cf..now if they just had put that in the 60d wouldn't want the 7d at all.

90mb write cf card vs 20mb write..sdhc . That raw counter is going to be moving up way faster than the sdhc.. i don't have a 7d to test this theory  vs the 60d , but i do remember how fast the red light turned off on a 7d with a 600x cf card video, fast!

i'm typing this, and why didn't they just add dual digis and a cf card slot to the 60d.. would have made the next year wait even more relaxing :)


lol even why not have 2 60d's and just swap between the two when the buffer runs out :) lol

EOS Bodies / Re: Manual Filming Settings for Canon 60D
« on: December 27, 2010, 02:36:11 AM »
Thanks for the reply.. Helped me out a fair bit and i know how to control the manual settings now :D

One more thing..   I know the settings are changed depending on the lighting and other factors.. But is there any particular setting that is used most commenly?  I'm finding that 200 ISO with a 50 shutter speed works well (Give or take a little).. And i'm trying to keep my aperture as low as i can for a shallow depth of field which i'm struggling to do.. Is there anyway i can lock in that 3.5ft aperture as this setting becomes unavailable once i have zoomed in a little..

Thanks again :D

24 = 50 shutter, no less when its 60 = 120 shutter, the rule of thumb..

you can't lock in the aperture with certain zooms the one your using is that situation. when its at its widest it'll use the lowest one, when you zoom in the highest number will be used that is on

so 18-135mm at 18 3.5, when you zoom in 135mm 5.6.

only certain zooms can do this  http://www.sigmaphoto.com/shop/17-50mm-f28-ex-dc-os-hsm-sigma ; thats one example at 17 through 50mm it will be 2.8

another example http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/ef_lens_lineup/ef_70_200mm_f_2_8l_is_ii_usm

it will be 2.8 all the way from 70 to 200.

hope you have a better idea now.

You just click the iso button on top and change it with the ribbed  clicky wheel on top, just try to keep it @ 800 & below when you start going up you will start to see noise but try different iso settings then watch them on your screen., set it @ 1920 x 1080 24, then set the shutter to 50 will say next to the fstop at the bottom left, and make sure when you click menu, to set movie exposure to manual or your going to be going all over the place , and then lastly dont let it really set the awb, but do that manually when you shoot that way its consistent color wise. = that covers your film look.

this is basically the "i wish i read this before; all in a paragraph when i picked up a dslr"

EOS Bodies / Re: Buy Canon T2i or wait for the "T3i"
« on: December 25, 2010, 06:36:08 PM »
If your currently in the business of photography and need a new camera badly I'd say buy the t2i, but if you can save up for a bit longer to buy the 60d, i'm 75% sure that the 60d will be better than the t3i in my opinion and it will be worth your while!! the t2i - t3i will be the entry level dslr and will never have most of the important the features of the 60d (swivel maybe) , plain fact (get the camera body only)

iso steps + agc control + swivel out screen + feels like the focusing system locks on stronger & confident + faster fps than the t2i.

« on: December 25, 2010, 06:24:27 PM »
I had the same idea, but no matter what the 60d will be better than the t3i (makes sense).

the t3i may have a swivel out screen (really dig it), but it will still retain the iso of 100-200-400-800-1600, while the 60d has  100-125-160-200-250-320-400-500-640-800  ISO, and most likely you won't be able to turn off the agc unlike the 60d which you can (the t2i magic latern you can , but I rather have a clean menu like the 60d and not worry about bricking it (yes i know magic latern is pretty safe - but still) ) .

think the coming year will be like this

t3i -> 60d -> 7d MKII -> 5D mkiii

think thats the product line ladder of 2011-2012 or the new choices :)
