EOS Bodies / Re: Help with 5DIII raw files
« on: October 06, 2013, 04:57:08 PM »
Actually, it worked flawlessly. The Adobe DNG converter lets you choose which version DNG file you want. So I selected the latest that is compatible with LR3.

Thanks for the information, I'm happy to stand corrected and have learned something new. Is this backporting method possible in all cases, or do newer cameras insist on using a newer dng version?

Friend, that is the kind of video you produce?

By the way: You can edit your posts and include multiple answers in one post instead of chaining several replies one after each other, spamming the place :-p

Get the 16-35 and a 6d

I wouldn't suggest this option for two reasons: the 6d...

* ...has a different usability than your 5d, so blind switching will be difficult (other than 60d & 6d)
* ... af isn't designed for the f2.8 of the 16-35L - esp. with ultra-wide focus & recompose is difficult, and the outer points or the 6d are disappointing even with the 17-40L.

I think there's a different between being a fanboi and someone whose had a positive experience with the product.

We can agree on this, and I also have to say the iq of the 6d is very good, esp. with Magic Lantern bringing it up to 15 stops of dynamic range. But you should like the "positive 6d spec list" I did some time ago to decide between crop, 5d2 and 6d:

The list of things that are good about the 6d is quite long, the only important thing is to be sure the (few) shortcomings don't affect the main usage and as spending €1500 will be considered well, esp. now with the 70d on the market.

In terms of what I like to shoot: my travels, landscapes, wildlife, flowers, people (often casual portraits or group shots) and architecture.

In other words: everything :-p

I don't mind having some redundant backup lenses, but I'm thinking that I have too much at this point. Any thoughts you have will be appreciated and considered.

My thought: Look at your Lightroom catalog (if you're using that) and do some statistics about what lenses, f-stops and focal lengths you were using.

thanks guys! Also I've heard a little about RAW, what is the real world benefit of being able to record in raw?

Like 15 stops of dynamic range with Magic Lantern raw + dual iso ?

There are 6D fanboys?  Oh wait, I know of at least one. :)

No, actually there is another one who recently told me to stop criticizing his (or my) 6D :-p ... and truth to be told, I somehow understand it, if buying a tech gadget for €1500 which as a horrendous amount of money for a lot of us (also including me) being told that it's crippled can be frustrating.

Of course.  It's new, that's true.  Enhanced?  Well, one might be tempeted to assume those enhancements are for the consumer, but perhaps the full statement on the internal memo read, "New and enhanced specifically to support product differentiation." </cynical>

Yeah, Canon surpassed themselves with that statement, I'd really have expected to be *somthing* in there, but really the sensor iq of the 6d is = 5d3... though 6d might have some less banding, but not due to the sensor. Maybe new and enhanced vs. 5dc?

Btw: Might it be that you're getting more critical about Canon's product policy during the ~2 years I am reading CR :-o ?

What do I do? Is a 6d with the mosaic engineering filter a better option (considering its cheaper) than upgrading to a 5d mkiii?

Considering the cost of the anti-moire filter and that the results will be still sub-par 5d3, return the 6d and buy a 5d3 (or 50d). Plus the 5d3 does 1080p/60fps raw video with Magic Lantern, the 6d is limited to ~40mb/s .

But thanks for the information, it might help other potential buyers to decide and is a real life experience vs. "6d is just fine" fanboys. I've got a 6d myself, but certainly not for video, Canon took great care there when designing the "new and enhanced" 20mp sensor vs. 5d2 vs. 5d3 :-(

Valid point, and IMO a programming error. It's obvious to use the 'set' button to return to centre point yet it cannot be assigned to this function in the custom menu.
But don't despair, I already requested this being done by Magic Lantern, if one of the devs doesn't implement it I'll add "center af on SET" myself to ml as it's such an annoyance

Quoting myself: I've just added "Center AF on SET" to Magic Lantern myself :-) ... it'll be in the nightly builds sooner or later. Take that Nikon, I can program my dslr to do what I like, no dynamic range can beat that.

Also you can now navigate in an alternative, imho better way with the multicontroller, it doesn't go to "all af points" anymore and you can get from middle to the extreme corners with fewer clicks.

"Die Hoffnung stirbt zuletzt" - We hope that there will be an miracle and Canon will release an affordable new and IQ improved FF camera

Yeah, and pigs can fly :-p ... I just wanted to make sure you know that buying a crop now and waiting for a new affordable ff next year will end in a disappointment.

He told us, that there will be a FF body in the D800 region....Maybe he is right. I hope so. The "1" series is to expensive for me

Everything I've read so far indicates a 1d-type camera, including a japanese powerpoint slide with a blank field next to the 1dx, i.e. on the same level. Rest assured, Canon won't imitate Nikon's aggressive marketing with the d800 but start at the very top once they've got a new sensor.

Next year I will look to buy an FF body - when Canon will release an new FF body

That would be the famed high-mp eos 1 body - I hope your pockets are full enough, because that'll empty them as fast as African highwaymen :-o ... imho for something useful new to filter down into the 6d price region it'll take 2-3 years.

Hi all, with this video, you are going to see the potential of the new Canon EOS 6D.

Nice, but what does it have to do esp. with the 6D? There are thin dof parts in it, but that's possible since the 5d2. These are natural scenes, so the 6D moire won't show. For everything else, you could have used a Rebel 550d.

Btw: @720p you could/should have used Magic Lantern raw video, there are some clipped whites during the sun scenes and very dark blacks in the shadows in bright daylight. Only the 5d3 does 1080p raw though due to the 40mb/s crippled 6D sd write speed :-\

Lenses / Re: EF 70-200 f/2.8L II Horror Stories
« on: October 01, 2013, 09:16:36 AM »
Why do people ignore the 70-200mm f/4 IS? It is stunningly sharp, almost as sharp as the "best" f/2.8s, and a fraction of the weight and price.

For me: Because there is no significant iq or speed difference between 70-200/4L & 70-300/4-5.6L, but the 70-200L is bulkier (longer), has less reach and costs nearly as much. The one point for the 70-200/4L is the constant f-stop, but that only matters if you shoot full m a lot or are doing video.

Canon il the market leader and could set a standard for all the companies, no?

Btw Canon is the market leader because of sales figures, not because they're spearheading anything (well, at least since the 5d2 video update) but because they're hitting the sweet spot of the market - from Rebels to 5d3. Selling a camera to a happy customer is worth as much as to a grumbling customer, pecunia non olet.

Change the sensor for IR or UV photography rather than getting multiple cameras, perhaps...

Sounds a bit too specialized to implement something like this in mainstream gear ... even exchanging a sensor for less resolution but a lot of whole more dynamic range might only concern a minority.
