I'm a little bit curious about the white balance improvements as I do shoot in SRAW-1 (5DII) and MRAW (7D).

Thanks for mentioning it, I never met anyone actually using these since 18/21mp file sizes arent like the Nikon d800 ... why do you do it, to save disk/card space (you could also just use dng lossy compression)?

Lenses / Re: What (nd) filter to put in the 17-40L back filter holder?

Try the Marumi 16.5 stop ND filter.

Well, my budget is already maxed out with the Heliopan 10x nd, I only want a quick/cheap gel nd addon for some shots - for water blur & people removal 10x is fine.

Btw also adding an ir blocker to the gel holder would make sense in any case to avoid the color cast.

my 60D is getting long in the tooth and the shutter is at 70,000 of it's rated 100,000 actuations.....

Not to worry, my 60d now is at 150k shutter cycles and shooting like on day one... actually better, for the first time I had some far in between shutter hiccups, but they have disappeared completely by now :-)

Imho the 60d is a very underrated quality camera, I hope the shutter of the 6d is also able to go beyond the Canon spec. Just one nitpick: Wait until you hit 100k shutter cycles, your camera might crash due to a fw bug, I had to remove the battery :->

Have you seen what VSCO is charging?

No but I know what Nik is charging for a much more complete and versatile suite of effects plugins ... not that I'd need either of them, but just sayin'

and you will find this lens tested with rather not so stellar results:

So what? If big review sites suck up to the big manufacturers and bash 3rd party gear it isn't better than small sites doing favorable reviews for smaller companies ...

... imho the best way still is to ask around in non-trollish/fanboyish forums, read cricial customer reviews in online shops & look at the sharpness in tdp - and last not lest try the feel of the lens for yourself in a shop.

I did just fine with cloud blur using a screw-in B&W ND3.0 77mm on my 17-40L.  I got 30s and longer exposures with small apertures and low ISO.

I also tried/did that but a) 30s isn't much to blur slow moving clouds significantly, ymmv in a tornado, b) to get the longest exposure you have to max. close the aperture which means iq loss and will show every single speck of dust on your sensor.

So a+b = putting another 3 stop gel behind the lens shouldn't hurt if it's cheap and iq is ok... the question still is: which?

No, you're not getting away with that, Neuro!

I do sympathize imagining his conflict, I really do - being a Canon gear collector and brand loyalist means one should be inclined to be understanding of Canon's policy, at least up to some point that might change over time or between forum posts :-p

Btw where's the documentation what Canon is doing with iso & the f1.2 lenses?

1838
Dear Drio, my friend. Yes, I will try.

Don't be too enthusiastic, it's really a specialized product for old-school film simulation with some other mixed presets added - it's beyond me how anyone paid $80 for this unless required for a specific purpose.

- The accuracy of the white balance in M-RAW and S-RAW images has been improved.

Yay! In your face, all people who think Canon won't be doing anything meaningful for the rest of 2013 :-p

That's great news, because I've already spend every € I had allocated for Canon gear, so no new products won't make me regret for example getting the old 17-40L - thanks for my peace of mind, Canon :->

I wouldn't mind a new, smaller rt flash though, dunno if this counts as "eos" gear or not, this is getting embarrassing with Yongnuo releasing one radio flash/trigger after the other.

Well, I'll be damned - I got a lens with a rear filter holder. Thanks for sharing

Don't be ashamed, I also wondered for some time what these four edgy things are for :-p

But I'm still open to any useful advice as for what gels work best for the back holder...

i can honestly say i never used Auto ISO since i have gone digital.

Opinions are divided on this, but imho auto iso is one of the primary advancements of the digital age, with today's cameras a couple of stops don't show (much) and you can either use m (though Canon lacks ec on m) or Av for changing lighting conditions - but for the latter you either need a 5d3/6d/1dx or Magic Lantern to set the min. shutter speed, or the Canon algorithm will go to low to shoot anything moving.

What?...

What what? Did my elaborate English skills fail me? Are you familiar with the 17-40L?

Lenses / What (nd) filter to put in the 17-40L back filter holder?
« on: September 20, 2013, 05:01:53 AM »
I recently realized my 17-40L has this back filter holder :-p and I now even have though of a use for it: With my 10x glass screw-in nd filter I don't get long enough shutter times for cloud blur in bright daylight, so I'd like to add another gel nd filter.

Question: What nd gels do I get to put behind the 17-40L?

the 6Dmk2 would be built close to 5D3 while retaining its small size and multi-directional dial (whatever you call it).

This sounds like Canon, and would make the 6d2 an excellent camera, just like the 70d (and unlike the 6d1...).

But this is another reason why the 6d2 will take some time to arrive - with a 5d3-type camera you can do just about everything, so either Canon has to cripple the 6d2 (like video with extra moire, 20mb/s sd-card write speed, 1/2000s shutter, 50k shutter cycles :->)  or raise the price or less people will get interested in the 5d4.
