EOS Bodies / Re: A Little 1Ds Mark IV Info
« on: January 20, 2011, 09:34:08 AM »
I don't think that's the case with the Lecia M9. It has a full frame sensor and the certainly isn't as deep as a DSLR or the mirror box.

I could be wrong but I'm assuming that if you design a new lens system you can do whatever you want.

I have no doubt Nikon will sell tons of EVILs. And I'm sure they have their uses. If it has the controls of a DSLR it will be appealing.

But I'd prefer a viewfinder. I'll take the weight and the size, I'm fine with that.

EOS Bodies / Re: Different camera numbers internationally - why?
« on: January 17, 2011, 09:11:38 AM »
The Japanese names are the worst. I have a friend with a Kiss2. Blah. But I dislike the America names for the Rebels an awful lot too. XSi is just too hard to say, and T2i isn't any better. When people ask what kinda of camera I have I just say a "Canon 450D". The reaction of people to hearing 450D is much better than "XSi".

I view the xxxD names as the "real" names. Since that is what makes sense within Canon's line up.

or maybe he had a boring day and wanted to ask something....

On that note, maybe I could ask this: in England, we pronounce Nikon 'Nick-on' and Nissan 'Niss-an' and Canon 'Can-on', with short vowels - especially the second - and a light stress on the first syllable. In America, I have heard Nikon pronounced 'Ny-kahn' and Nissan 'Nee-ssahn' with long vowels, and stressed second syllables: so how do you pronounce Canon? 'Ca-nahn'? 'Cay-nahn'?

That's interesting. I knew that Nikon was pronouced Nick-on in England and Australia/New Zealand too but I didn't know that about Nissan. I think it's cool the way that works. I dont' think anyone told me how to say Nikon. I looked at it and thought "Ny-kon"
But yeah, Canon is the same. Can-on

EOS Bodies / Re: which to get xsi or t2i?
« on: January 11, 2011, 04:47:01 PM »
Ok, I see a war going on up there and I don't want to read it. So I'm just going to comment on this.

I have the XSi. I've had it for about a year now and I've done engagment shoots and portrait sessions with it. As well as just walking around and shooting for fun. I even took it to Peru. I have a fairly nice selection of glass. So I've gotten to know my XSi quite well.
Honestly, I wish I had gotten a T2i. Now the XSi is a great camera but ther are a few things I don't like.
- It's light. It's a little too light for me.
- It's screen is low res compared to the T2i, 7D, 5D2, or any other new model. 230,000 pixels compared to the T2i's 1,040,000 pixels. This is a big deal for me. Sometimes I think I have the shot and it turns out it blurred and I couldn't tell on the screen. You can see the jaggies of the pixels on some pictures.
- ISO Range. The ISO range is just a little sad in my opinion. 100-1600. And 1600 is not usable. I think it would be better if it offered 1/3 or 1/2 stop increments but it doesn't. The first feature of the XSi that started to make me feel confined and restricted was the ISO range. I basically stay on 100, 200 or 400, I use 800 for emergencies and I never use 1600. But it's my own fault for not researching more.
- Focus points. The standard 9 point system Canon uses drives me crazy. But you get no better option from the T2i

Now my mother has  a T2i and I play with it when I go visit.
- It weighs about the same so no help there.
- The screen is a thing of beauty. Higher res than the 5D Mark 2 (but just barely) I suppose the 1,040,000 pixel screen will be Canon's new standard screen.
- The ISO range is broader. I think the quality is better. Not by a whole lot but at least it gives you some more options if you need it. 1600 and 3200 look ok. I'm not sure I would touch 6400 and 12800
- And it has video mode.

If I had to do it again I'd get a T2i. It would have postponed my need to upgrade to the 7D.
Bottom line is: I don't think there is any reason to buy an XSi now. Go T2i.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon t3i or 60D (Articulating Screen)
« on: January 11, 2011, 04:26:09 PM »
I would be willing to bet that the T3i will have an articulating screen. However, I don't understand what the 60D has that you don't want. Except for maybe the price but you can find it pretty cheap if you look around. And the T3i will be a bit more than the T2i when it comes out, which will narrow the gap. Feature wise they really aren't that different anyway.

Explain please. Why don't you want a 60D?

The-digital-picture.com for sure.
I like DPreivew.com too but I'm a little limited by what is blocked here at work.

I also like cameralabs.com as well.

These are good but you need to relax on the split tones. Keep working on your stuff, it's more about the subtlety than overbearing visuals

I disagree actually. I like the feel that these pictures express.
Well done!
