EOS Bodies - For Stills / Features seen in the past and absent today
« on: September 01, 2014, 03:11:04 AM »
I wonder why canon packed older cameras with some very useful features that are totally absent in modern cameras. Here I refer to the Canon EOS 1D released in 2001 vs modern professional canon cameras.

I refer strictly to:

1/16,000 shutter speed
X-sync speed 1/500

Impressive features....

key features:

    Shoots 4k, 2k, 1080 all simultaneously
    Can be used for live events
    Wireless transmission of video
    120 fps in 4k
    14+ stops of dynamic range

EOS Bodies / Canon 6D flash sync
« on: January 27, 2013, 04:40:17 AM »
I know 6D has external flash sync of 1/180s....

Canon cameras have only 1/160s or 1/200s not 1/180s My question is:

If i shoot with 6D at 1/200 in studio i will get that black line on the bottom of the frame like the one i get from 7D shooting at 1/250 ( 7D has a flash sync of 1/200) ?????

   Many of Canonrumors forum members are estimating different prices or body type for the newly rumored Canon Big Megapixel Monster that eventually will be released as a response to Nikon D800.
   Let's see the centralized opinion of the forum users...

Canon General / How many of us are making money out of photography ?
« on: September 19, 2012, 05:55:35 AM »
With the release of the new 5D3 and Canon 6D i sow many of the forum users commenting pro/against the camera expressing their opinions about the cameras like their '' living/income depends of those camera bodies'',....

So my question is very simple: How many of us are making money out of photography ???

I will start; my income percentage that i make out of photography  is over 50%. At this moment i still have a regular job ( but not for a long time  ::)  )

A fair answer will be highly appreciated.

Lenses / Canon 50mm f/1.4 USM focus problem...
« on: August 09, 2012, 05:24:25 AM »

I just bought a new Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens. The problem is that i must microadjust at +20 ( using 7D in camera feature) to get sharp images when the subject is over 2 m from the lens. when i focus under that distance say... 1m the lvl must be on 0 to get sharp images.

Is this normal? or i received a copy with focus problems???



Lenses / 40mm f/2.8 or 50mm f/1.4
« on: July 24, 2012, 06:09:27 AM »

I want to buy a new fixed focal lens and i can,t decide between 40mm f/2.8 or 50mm f1.4. i mention that i will use the lens on a APS-C body ( Canon 7D) only for people and portraits.

Wat is your experience with those two lenses? there is a significant difference in IQ at 2.8 , difference in AF speed etc. I use L zooms and the only fixed focal lens i currently use is 100mm f/2.8 USM.

I am not interested in weight or dimensions of the lens ... only in IQ. The price difference between 40mm and 50mm is worth it???


EOS Bodies / Ultra wide lens for APS-H sensor cameras
« on: June 29, 2012, 02:11:16 AM »
Judging by the last rumors 7D2 will have a APS-H sensor, many of the forum users complains about no ultra wide EF lens. So... the Poll question is:

 You need a wider lens than EF 16-35mm/17-40mm for a APS-H sensor sports/wildlife dedicated camera?

EOS Bodies / Canon 7Dmk2 any rumors??
« on: February 29, 2012, 04:44:34 AM »
   In the last month or so everybody is speaking only about the 5D3/X.... there are any viable rumors about the 7D replacement? lets face it 7D is a 3 years old camera ( its time to be upgraded). From what i can see from the latest 5D photos, the camera is called 5D3 (not X) , logical that means is not a combination between 5D and 7D series.

   I'm 99% sure that canon will not discontinue the 7D series build quality and features regardless that is called 7D mk2 or 70D.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Canon 7D for studio work
« on: February 01, 2012, 03:21:10 AM »

I want to upgrade my almost 4 years old Canon 40D; my choice is the 7D; i mention that i will use it only with high quality L lenses, 40% for people studio work (portraits postures, isolated on white) 30% for objects, food, desserts  (in studio, over various backgrounds) and 30% for cases where the 1.6 crop factor and 8 frames/sec is a huge advantage. I am not interested in high ISO capability of the camera above ISO 400.

My questions are:

- how is performing the 7D sensor in studio shooting people over white background?Huh ( i am  interesting mostly in image noise levels at iso 100-200 , the ability to produce sharp images and the ''problems'' with the hair over white background)

- the lvl of details and overall IQ produced by 7D in studio is above average considering today stock standards ( SS standards in special)?

Thanks in advance for sharing your experience,
