Alex really does good job for the ML for 5D3.  I have used his ML for 5D3 for about 1 year, and glad to see the improvement every month.  I just cannot image how much effort he put on this project.

This is probably a stupid question but I'll ask anyway - is this for photo, video, or both?


This is for both.  For me, ML add more valuable video feature on 5D3.  It make your 5D3 like a 5000+ camera.  Please check Magic Lantern website for more information.

When you format, did you do a slow format or a quick one?

When you do a full format, the computer writes over every block back to simple 1's and 0's.  It takes forever.  A quick format just marked everything as deleted and is consequently recoverable. 

I might be wrong about that, but that is my understanding.

Full format will not erase data on sectors.  However, it will scan bad sectors for you.  That's why you still can recovery data from full formatted discs/cards.  Nowadays hard drives and flash drives/cards rarely have bad sectors, so quick formatted is recommended.

In short the simple answer seems to be "more", I just came across the following http://www.lexar.com/products/lexar-professional-3333x-cfast-card (that's Lexar new 256GB Professional 3333x CFastâ„¢ 2.0 card) and the answer can change to "1".  :D

You still need 1 spare CF card and one SD card for Magic Lantern.

I am very happy with my Sigma 50mm f/1.4.  However, this is very exciting to hear the new 50 f/1.4 art lens.  Good job Sigma and Tamron.

PowerShot / Re: Canon S110 vs S120
« on: January 06, 2014, 01:39:08 PM »
Forgot to mention that I currently have the S95.

I used to own S95 and my friend has S110.  What I can said the IQ from S95 and S110 is not too different.  I don't think that would be a good idea upgrade from S95 to S120.

I posted a thread asking, what's your favorite compact camera?  What about the aps-c sensored Samsung NX1000 for $355?  Or how about for $260 via Ebay refurb?  This might be the same sensor that's in the Sony RX100...and I have a feeling that one is better than what's in the S120.  Of course the camera is not as compact, and the removable lens is huge by comparison.  Not very pocketable!

RX100 may be the best P&S cammera.  However, the price is much higher than S110/S120.

Yeah, it only undercuts the Canon because DxO still has the 24-105 costing 1250, which is far above its current street price.  It may be a slightly better than Canon's 24-105, but with the Canon version selling at 600-700, the Sigma isn't quite the bargain as when the Canon sold at 1250.

That's what I thought.  When you can get Canon 24-105 for 600 bulks easily, I don't really see why Canon users need to get Sigma 24-105.

I vote for Rokinon 14mm.  Couple simple reasons here.
- AF is not important since it's my landscapes only lens.
- Cost
- IQ good enough
- I prefer 14mm than 16mm.

By the way, you cannot put a filter on Rokinon 14mm as well.

Canon General / Re: Consumer DSLRs "dead in 5 years"
« on: October 28, 2013, 01:52:46 PM »
Few weeks ago we went to a birthday party and took some pictures for my friend's kids.  Yesterday, we met again in another party.  He asked me why your pictures are much better than mind and the focus is very accurate.  He use Sony nex 5 which should be good enough.  However, he told me that he often got motion blur and a lot of time the focus is not right.  How that could happen?  I believe that's because the current technology is not smart enough to guess what kind setting you want.  Before a camera can read 85% of my mind and apply the settings automatically, I guess I will keep using DSLR camera.  Surely there is more challenge for DSLRs, but I really don't think DSLRs will dead in 5 years.
