Only 3 lenses?  And I guess you will definitely want the Sigma dock for updates?

EOS Bodies / Re: Multilayer Sensors are Coming From Canon [CR2]

Neuro and I both wrote on that article mentioned...

Judging by the numerous grammatical errors in those Adweek comments, I am pretty sure it's not the same Neuro in CR forum. ;D

No, certainly not me.  Likely one of the banned ex-CR trolls attempting a lame and pathetic sort of payback.

Haha.  The writing (and spelling) was like 2nd grade skill level. They should have used a copy of Neuro's avatar, but with a little cross section of a peanut where the brain would go.

Does multi layer mean foveon like or does it mean something else? Seems there are other possibilities with additional filters.

I am a foveon user and can say for some applications it is exceptional and for others terrible. It would be fantastic to see another company push this type of technology beyond its current state. I hope Canon is this company. Maybe Canon does not need to make this type of sensor to be good at everything, just good at specific things. Look at Sony A7r and A7s. Both sell well, yet both are good at different tasks.

Really looking forward to seeing companies take image quality more seriously, by this I mean, eliminating IQ destroying Interpolation and bayer colour filters.

I dunno.
"Truer colors" does not blow my hair back, nor does less chromatic aberration (but with monochrome aberrations still there, thus still needing a Bayer filter as stated above??).

And the negatives seem problematic.  Lessened frame rate and ginormous files?

And better IQ at higher ISO a is the most important thing for me, but as stated above, Foveon may actually be WORSE rather than better?

Post Processing / Re: How to start using Photoshop
« on: October 06, 2014, 06:53:53 PM »
Hi everyone,

Everything is in the title. I am using lightroom since a few years, but I feel like I could use Photoshop from time to time.
I have never used it before but I am keen to learn. How would you start? What should be learned first? Do you advice any book, tutorial, website?

Any advice is welcome!


Same boat as you. I am very fluent in Lightroom, but I can't force myself to use Photoshop Elements.  I bought and completely ignored Elements 10.  I bought Elements 12 2 months ago and again, despite the best intentions, I have not sucked it up and gotten into it.

You seem to know the answer already. You don't shoot sports terribly seriously and you say your AF is fine for what you do.  A 6d will give you a modern full frame sensor, which will be a big improvement in low light/high ISO.  With a 6d, you will definitely experience a benefit in the portraits, family shots, etc. you list as primary interests.

If you felt like stretching the budget to about $2,600 U.S., you could get a 5d3 and have the FF and the AF in one package.

Football Sighted; Witnesses Say Ball Held By Girl In Blue Dress, Ready To Kick Off

One witness, a young bald kid in a yellow shirt, claims that despite previous instances of trickery, in which the ball was pulled away, he plans to run full speed at it again for his 3,835th attempt, oblivious to the laughter of others.

EOS Bodies / Re: More Talk of an October Announcement of a DSLR [CR1]

Everyone:  look at the original post on FM. There's nothing much there. Just some guy makes a statement in a thread saying there's going to be a new big MP body.  Then about 20 people on FM started going back and forth on it, and then people here on CR are doing the same thing. 

Go back to the beginning post on FM. Read it. There is nothing much there. 

It doesn't exist yet, but if someone really could get the camera to do its own AFMA using DPAF (or whatever) that would be truly great.

 I also think they would be smart to put it in every body (or every one that has DPAF ) not just the higher end ones.  That would just go to the basic functionality of the camera and the basic image quality, and it would be concealing their own minor manufacturing inconsistency to make every Canon body work perfectly with every lens.  Cheaper than trying to accomplish the same thing with massive quality control improvement efforts.  And it wouldn't upset the separation of price points between models.  The simple one would focus simply but accurately.

I fiddle with the crop quite a bit, but the amount of care differs according to how special or not special the image is. 

I usually frame a little loosely so that I can have leeway to improve composition goofs with a fairly significant crop.

Some guy no one knows makes an account calling himself "Psychic1" and posts a statement with absolutely no backstory on how he comes to know this.  They seem inordinately excited by very thin rumors there on FM. 

EOS Bodies / Re: 7DII vs Samsung NX1
« on: September 17, 2014, 02:38:21 PM »
Does Adobe work up a Lightroom raw converter for Samsung bodies?  If not, that would be a pain.  If so, do they take a while to get around to doing it when new bodies come out?

How did they let "That Nikon Guy" play with the merchandise?  He should be on a no-try list somewhere at Canon.  ;)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Upgrade Path Dilemma

You don't list interests in shooting live subjects in low light or indoors.  That somewhat reduces your need for full frame. 
As long as you are shooting landscapes, etc., which do not move, you could get by in dim light by using long exposures, provided you get a good tripod and head. Do you have one? 

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Specifications Confirmed

No mention of max shutter. Assume it is 1/8000?

No mention of flash sync speed.  Assume it is 1/250th?  Any possibility it could be a bit higher?  1/320th?
