A 5D3.

My 60D has over 150,000 on it and it's still going strong,  and has never been serviced.

At least he gets his subjects smiling!

EOS Bodies / Re: Where are the Canon fun Pentaxian colors?

Pentax really makes these colourful cameras for the Japanese market, where cheap DSLRs are virtually a throw away market and they are trying to attract young women into the hobby. The Japanese market is quite different from ours.

Back in the 60's Canon and Nikon, and others, offered silver/black as standard with all black being an option, at extra cost.
Why can't Canon offer an optional colour?
I'd love a white 5D3.

For 10K, it would have to be medium format.
To me, the 1Ds are just too big and too heavy for just a 35mm sensor.

I love my 5D3, as do so many others here, and it does everything I've ever asked of it, and believe me, I do a wide range of photography.

For 10K, a body would be able to turn up to the photos jobs itself and do the job without me.

I bet it's a mistake.

I'd  still prefer it if it had a push-pull zoom.
I love that on my 100-400.

You can zoom and focus at the same time.

Video & Movie / Re: Who is shooting in 4k?
« on: October 24, 2014, 07:25:19 PM »
Movie studios have been shooting in 4K or better for years now.
Any digital movie you see at the cinema has been 4K or better for at least the last 5 years.

I love my 100-400L.
The new one would need to be significantly better for me to replace it with the version.

It may have been the best camera he had with him at the time.

Thanks guys.
After mucking around with the camera and tab, I found the easiest way to do it is through a card reader plugged into the tablet.
It's quick and easy and I can easily select which images to copy across, and then I can then copy them back to  a USB key etc.

Thanks for your responses guys.

What I need it for is so that when I am doing a job for a customer out in the field, I can download the camera shots directly into my tablet, preferably with a wire as wireless is too slow for high res images, then I can select the photos I want to transfer and then copy them onto a USB key or onto their phone, as well as having a copy for myself.

What I really wanted to know is if I put the appropriate cable into my camera and my tablet, will they talk to each other or not, without using other 3rd party software.

I'd like to ask some advice from you learned ladies and gentlemen.

I have a 5D3 and a Samsung Galaxy Tab S.
I can plug in a USB key into the tablet and copy images and videos both ways, but can I plug my camera into my tablet and download the photos from the camera directly (with the correct cables)?
Do I need some software to be able to do it?

Looks amazing.

A great company is not made from their patents, but from their products.
Come on Canon, get this to market -- ASAP!
