EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Announces the EOS T5i
« on: March 21, 2013, 01:16:17 PM »
The only other significant change made over and above the 650D is the ability to preview and apply Canon's 'Creative Filter' processing effects at the point of shooting, rather than adding them as a post-shot process.

I have it on the 60d, I wouldn't want to use it even when starting photography... imho this is a no-feature.

Quote from: Canon
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.

Yeah, right - incredible iq from this sensor (in comparison to a mobile phone?), crisp/detailed images with a kit lens and shooting in low-light on crop (with tripod?) ... the Canon marketing guys are about to be hit by lightning.

So 18mp is completely overkill as it is, regardless of the competition.

Imho 18mp isn't overkill, but a good mp count - it allows for good print sizes even after a little cropping & perspective correction plus you can cut 4:3 and 16:9 from it an still have enough mp left. More mp is nice for macro though, higher magnification with a sharp lens at less aperture falloff.

With the 5D3 and the 6D as the better level cameras just out, it would be Odd (though nice) for the 70D's new sensor to jump much beyond that performance. If there was a significant jump in sensor tech then i'd expect the 1D to get a refresh first/at the same time. 

Full frame is about usable high iso, crop is about reach and low iso - and for still tripod shots even my 60d does just fine, you can do multishot noise reduction in software for a ff look. If Canon would only be able to raise the dr on low iso like Nikon did it would be an upgrade "next" and not "instead" of the 5d3/6d.

DIGIC 6 will be introduced tonight in the SX280 HS as reported a few days ago. We’re told we can expect DIGIC 6 to make its first appearance in an EOS camera inside the EOS 70D.

DIGIC6 is bad news since Magic Lantern won't run on these cameras for some time - and thus one of the few features that Canon cameras have over Nikon. But I'm keen to see what new features are in the chip, can't be just the speed because DIGIC5 does ok here.

The 651D is here............LOL

Canon won't stop until every person on this planet has bought one of their 18mp cameras (if they don't go ff) ... but on the bright side if the price goes down Canon-like after a couple of months this is a good first camera with even 5fps...

I'd love the 70d, but I'd gladly upgrade to the t5i from my t4i if the noise with autofocus on during video recording was fixed...

If anyone is learning about or teaching about planned obsolescence, Canon is your prime research object - fix bugs by updating the hardware, I wouldn't be surprised if they already have the specs for the t6i and t7i in the drawer :-p ... but all are good cameras, however the old 550d still seems to have the best "bang for the buck" with the same 18mp sensor and working Magic Lantern.

This Canon vs Nikon argument is just silly really. We have reached a point where all of the recent sensors are good enough for commercial print. I was shooting with a 40D for newspapers until about this time last year.

Blown highlights due to less dynamic range show on any print size, and you don't need life-sized prints to spot banding or noise after raising shadows. Good for Canon that his difference only matters on low iso, so only landscape or sports on very good light are affected by the difference.

Canon is known for warmover models -- but this spec T5i is too close to the T4i even for Canon.

But they moved to digic5 (faster fps), certainly updated the fw (rt flashes, more gimmicks) and probably did some other changes that makes this model more attractive to *produce* for *Canon* - and next to that a new model will sell better in the Rebel market simply due to being "new".

However I'd like to thank Canon for sticking to the 18mp sensor so my 60d still isn't outdated :-)

EOS Bodies / Re: Looks like the 6D may not be so bad after all
« on: March 12, 2013, 12:56:32 PM »
Well, at least the problem with the 5d III can be corrected over time, and at around $2900 new this issue may already have been fixed.  Fixing an underspec'd 6D on the other hand ... not so easy.

But it is - sell the 6d for €1200. The 6d as well as the 5d3 have weaknesses, obviously the 6d more than the 5d3, and "underspeced" for the 6d is only related to the competition (d600) and the current price. Just like the 5d3 is also just another camera and there are better current models (1dx) and there will be newer replacements to come, maybe sooner than later.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Why does Canon watermark their manuals
« on: March 10, 2013, 09:45:01 AM »
Is this because if I somehow managed to print it, in the same small form factor they do (bound and sized appropriately), that it would be obvious I was making a fake. Seriously?  :o

This is the only explanation I was able to come up with when I saw the watermark - some people or enterprises seem to go over the top when it's about ip protection, be it text or software. Just read what recently happened with ea and sim city when they overdid it with copy protection and forgot that there are users out there who are hampered as a (bit) side effect.

Software & Accessories / SD card min. write speed?
« on: March 07, 2013, 02:30:52 PM »
I'm currently using a 2010 32gb SankDisk Extreme with "30mb/s" on the sticker. Since the prices have dropped a lot since I'm wondering if getting a newer card would improve my raw+jpeg continuous burst rate significantly - currently I'm using a 60d but will get a 6d sooner or later.

* Does the *minimum* write speed depend on the size of the card, i.e. is a 32gb card better than a 16gb one except for the obvious storage difference?

* Does my older 60d still profit from the improved write speed of the current Sandisk "Extreme Pro" with 95mb/s on the sticker, or is the a newer uhs-1 sd controller like on the 6d required?


EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 6D or 5D Mark III

The 6D is lower build quality, poor ergonomics compared to 40D, and much worse than 5DIII
Get the 5DIII, and enjoy the full-frame goodness

No, don't - the 5d3 has lower build quality, poor ergonomics compared to the 1d4, and much worse than 1dx. Get the 1dx, and enjoy the *real* full-frame goodness - at least if you don't want to think about what you actually need.

Anyone besides me notice that the OP never replied to anyone after his/her initial question?

Yes, and this happens very often - it's basically longer-term cr members procrastinating or chatting among themselves. Either people with one post (like the op) just read some replies and then leave, or write something after quite a while. Another possibility is him trolling, but it didn't sound like it even though 7d vs. 60d is/was a heated issue.

as I do not really like the LCD view, a bit old school here

Me neither, and that's why I'm looking forward to an electronic viewfinder you cannot tell from an ovf - think focus peaking inside the vf...

7D...I shoot a lot of sports, FPS is a big deal, and so is AF speed/ accuracy.  From what I have read, the 7d is better at both.

Not entirely - accuracy of the 60d is somewhat better (see Lensrentals), though both are not very precise in comparison to really good af systems like 1dx/5d3. The main advantage of the 7d is more focus points & firmware customization.

Low light performance is identical between the two.  They have the same sensor, same ISO range,  and same Digic 4 processor(s).

It isn't - the low light performance of the 60d is better because the 7d has more banding (varying from body to body), so you can underexpose = faster shutter & raise shadows more on 60d. Ymmv how often you're doing this, but banding is something to consider, see the improvement 5d2->6d.

Disclaimer: The 7d is the better camera and I'd switch my 60d for free anytime - but my money goes into glass first unless a body has features I *really* depend on.
