EOS Bodies / Re: EOS not good for NASA?
« on: April 26, 2013, 04:41:52 AM »
It's not a secret that NASA uses Nikon cameras and lenses (http://www.nikon.com/news/2009/1221_NASA-D3S_01.htm) after using Hasselblad cameras during the Apollo mission.
Could we reveal the reason?

very, very simple reason:

Hassy has a bigger camera body ( more easy to manipulate the settings in a space suit)

Nikon sensors have better DR than Canon.... and in space this performance is crucial.

Seems like the XXD line is back on track.
At $1199 i believe the XXD line will stay where is now. on those specs nothing about body construction and AF. I believe 70D will be slightly bigger but will have the same construction as the current 60D.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5D MK3 or 6D Replacements... when?
« on: April 05, 2013, 05:43:07 AM »
I hope to see the 6D replacement soon.

34
Also i have a 40D as a Canon 7D backup camera. I bought it new in 2008 and used as primary camera for 3 years.

The camera have around 50k click's and still running perfectly. I abused my 40D very hard... from -25 degree Celsius ( on top of the mountains) to very hot desert conditions where the sand is like flour. Never, not even once let me down.

Canon EF Prime Lenses / Re: Canon 50mm 1.4
« on: March 31, 2013, 04:06:52 PM »
Nice picture.... but for 7D i strongly recommend the Sigma 50mm f/1.4... i own both lenses... and Sigma blows Canon away in every test regarding IQ on FF and crop sensors.

EOS Bodies / Re: What is missing from the 7DII specs
« on: March 29, 2013, 08:11:14 AM »
Lots of discussion about this spec.  WOndering how the camera (granted this is a rumor and the camera is not real) could be improved.

I undecided between more AF Points and a second card slot.  Thus I am allowing 2 votes per person (plus I live outside Chicago were everyone votes early and votes often).

If those specs will be materialized the things that ''I will miss'' are:

1. (and most important) 2 card slots ( 1 SD and 1 CF)
2. integrated battery grip ( like 1D series)
3. APS-H sensor  :P

Specifications:

    21MP APS C
Fair enough for a APS-C sensor
    ISO 100-25600 (L: 50, H1 51200, H2 102400)
this is a reasonable ISO for a 1DX intended backup camera
    10fps
reasonable
    Video ‘stills burst’ mode 30/60 fps
I believe the strong point of 7D2 will be video.... if will be capable to shoot 1080P at 60fps and 720P at 90 or 120fps, than this feature will be a real improvement
    Full HD video with manual control
expected....
    Single CF Card Slot
I believe this will be the biggest disappointment of the rumored camera
    19 AF Points all Cross
:( maybe will be a faster AF ( due to the DIGIC 5 processors... I personally prefer a strong 19 AF point instead of  a crippled 51 AF.
    On chip phase detect pixels for liveview and AF tracking
expected feature
    100% Viewfinder
Normal in those days
    Viewfinder LCD Higher Resolution Than 7D
expected feature
    3.2″ LCD
expected
    GPS, WiFi
good for distance remote control when shooting wildlife
    Alloy body with better weather sealing over 7D
again...expected feature

The only big question is: how much the IQ will be improved ? i mean high ISO capability and sharpness ( mushy images).
I also believe that with those specs Canon will keep the price under $2000.. maybe at 1899 or 1999 at launch.

I wonder who vote for higher ISO ( if the native is 100 - 25600 and can be expanded to 100k) ???:D

39
I recommend the H4D-31.... Today Hassy is the best studio camera money can buy.

<p><strong>MELVILLE, N.Y., March 21, 2013 –</strong> Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is proud to introduce a new flagship model to its popular EOS Rebel line, the EOS Rebel T5i Digital SLR Camera. The incredible image quality and performance starts with an 18 megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor and Canon’s superb DIGIC 5 Image Processor. Combined with an extensive ISO range of 100-12800 (expandable to 25600 in H mode), the EOS Rebel T5i boasts crisp, detailed images, even in low-light conditions. With a continuous shooting speed of up to 5.0 frames per second (fps) united with 9 all cross-type AF focus points, the new EOS Rebel T5i allows photographers the opportunity to shoot with ease, even in challenging shooting situations.</p>
<p>When shooting in Live View mode, the Hybrid CMOS AF system enables speedy and accurate autofocus for photos and video. Coupled with Canon’s new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens, available in the standard kit lens bundle, the EOS Rebel T5i takes full advantage of the Stepping Motor (STM) technology, which allows the lens to smoothly and silently focus on the subject whether it is moving or standing still. When combined with the camera’s high-resolution Vari-angle Touch Screen 3.0-inch Clear View LCD monitor II and intuitive touch controls, the EOS Rebel T5i stands as Canon’s most “consumer-friendly” DSLR.</p>
<p>“Built to make advanced photography creative and fun, the EOS Rebel T5i Digital SLR Camera gives users exceptional image quality and fast, intuitive operation along with creative functions to help advance photographic expression,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Imaging Technologies & Communications Group, Canon U.S.A.</p>
<p><strong>Expand Your Creativity with New Advanced Features</strong></p>
<p>The EOS Rebel T5i provides amateur and advanced photographers looking to hone their creative and technical skills with a range of features that allow for crisp, clear images.</p>
<p>Whether it is adding saturation to a vivid landscape or applying a unique, vintage touch to a portrait, users who want to express their creativity can experiment with different effects and settings, composing a shot, by using one of Canon’s seven Creative Filters. When the Creative Filters are applied in Live View, users can preview the filter on the vari-angle three inch LCD touch screen without having to shoot the image first. Effects such as ArtBold, Water Painting, Grainy Black and White, Soft Focus, Toy Camera, Fish-Eye and Miniature let users pick and choose how to best express their creative vision before or after the image is captured.</p>
<p>The EOS Rebel T5i features advanced shooting modes to take creative imaging even further. When using one of the advanced shooting modes such as Handheld Night Scene, HDR Backlight Control or Multi-Shot Noise Reduction, multiple images are taken and combined within the camera to help create the best quality image based off of the shots taken. Providing quick and easy accessibility, a new mode dial with Scene modes has been included, allowing users the flexibility to select the subject matter while the camera determines the optimal settings.</p>
<p><strong>Enhanced EOS Full HD Movie Mode</strong></p>
<p>The EOS Rebel T5i offers easy-to-use professional video capture. When users switch to EOS Full HD Movie mode, the EOS Rebel T5i offers the ability to shoot in 1080p Full HD video in a number of recording sizes and frame rates. With Canon’s Hybrid CMOS AF System and Movie Servo AF, the camera provides continuous AF for focus tracking of moving subjects by helping to reduce the camera’s need to “hunt”, resulting in a quick and smooth continuous AF. While shooting with one of Canon’s Stepping Motor (STM) lenses, such as the new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens, the camera will only capture the stereo sound of the scene being recorded. For added flexibility, the EOS Rebel T5i also features a built-in stereo microphone with manual audio level adjustment to enhance sound quality.</p>
<p><strong>Expanded Lineup of STM Lenses</strong></p>
<p>Canon is expanding the lineup of STM lenses by adding one new lens, which now gives users three choices that will allow for the capture of stunning images and video with the EOS Rebel T5i – the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, the EF 40mm f/2.8 STM and the new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens. The EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens offers high magnification in a compact and lightweight EF-S standard zoom lens with an optical image stabilizer for up to four equivalent stops for shake correction. When paired with the Hybrid CMOS AF, it allows for smooth and quiet, continuous AF for photo and video capturing – making it the perfect combination for preserving those once in a lifetime moments.</p>
<p><strong>Availability</strong></p>
<p>The EOS Rebel T5i Digital SLR camera is scheduled to be available in April for an estimated retail price of $749.99 for the body alone; $899.99 bundled with an EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens kit, and $1,099.00 with the EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens kit.</p>
<p>The new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens also is also scheduled to be available separately in April at an estimated retail price of $249.99</p>


You meant canon re announces   the 650D/T4i ..... pathetic.

EOS Bodies / Re: 7d2 Video specification speculation
« on: March 18, 2013, 03:12:08 AM »
Pardon the pun in the title, it's Friday afternoon and I'm getting goofy.

Adding to my wish list of things that are unlikely to happen, along with AF-point-linked spot metering, I'm wondering what the chances are of seeing higher frame rate video in the 7d2. Obviously this is not based on anything more than line items on CR1 spec lists about "improved video", and there are lots of ways to improve video.

But, given that the 7d is geared towards sports shooters, might Canon include the ability to shoot 1080/60 (or better?) This would be a better spec than the 5d3 and 1dx, but the GoPro3 can do it, and that's a much smaller, cheaper little device. Plus, I want it to happen, and therefore I've convinced myself it's possible.

I really hope 7D2 will have 1080/60 fps AND 720/120 fps. I believe the speculated dual DIGIC 5 processors will have enough processing power for that.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Crazy... go Nikon?
« on: March 18, 2013, 01:58:51 AM »
can a mod please check the IP´s of all these one-post-posters poping up here lately?

it kind of struck me that there are so many new users here who have nothing to tell beside how great nikon is.   ::)

i smell a troll....

It's just how awesome Nikon cameras are. Face it: There are situations (Landscape, Studio) where Canon can't compete anymore and Nikon has taken the lead. If only the lenses would be compatible or Nikon would produce a camera with EF mount...

+1  ;)

Specification list
http://camerarumors.blogspot.in/2013/03/7d-mark-ii-will-have-32mp-sensor.html

 ha ha haaa...  ;D ;D

the Perfect 7D2 ( as a 1Dx backup) will have 16MP sensor and ISO quality on pair with 5Dmk2.... move 70D little bit up in the canon line (build quality like 50D) and fit it with  a 24MP sensor. ;)

I believe this will be the best move from Canon.... definitely will pun some serious pressure on Nikon regarding crop frame - high end cameras..

I said 1 year ago  about the 7D2 with integrated grip. If canon will release such a camera... they will hit the jackpot regarding sales... even if the price will be around $2500.
