No 4k? It's useless.

fuckin this... but still camouflage is a great addition.
I already have mine in pre-order @ BH

Do you think I have to sell my 1D X now before it becomes obsolete?

third is best for composition but I cannot understand the sepia toning in the upper part. Also I would have tried to recover those blacks.

the second and fourth are somewhat insignificant IMO

first is ok but the cut-off pinnacle is really really annoying

Lenses / Re: Zeiss 21mm f/2.8 or 24-70 mm II
« on: January 17, 2014, 08:23:20 AM »
I own both (canon 24-70 II & zeiss 21). I absolutely loved the zeiss until I purchased the 24-70 this summer. This is such a versatile and perfect lens that now the zeiss rarely leaves the bag. I am also under the impression  that 24mm is a better focal lenght for landscape compared to 21, which is bit too wide and requires more control/time/thinking over framing.

So if you are considering one lens only my suggestion is to go for the 24-70. You won't miss the IS at all and will be fine in most situations

something is happening with the TS-E17 and TS-E24 too. maybe some minor update as suggested. both of them have not been available from my usual hk lens suppliers already since a few weeks

I have the sport model and it works fine. The two major annoyances are:

1. the front slide adjustment is pretty useless and bulky. Once you have decided the lenght which fits for you there is no need to change it, also because the whole regulation thing prevents you from lifting the camera above your head when you need that sky shot. Taking photos above your chest level can be frustrating

2. I see that they have changed the plate and the attaching pin is now foldable. I still have the fixed pin which is very cumbersome and sticks out all the time when you have to put the camera on a plain surface

Seems a little too obvious I would think

Agree that it is not likely to be 3D strap from canon.  Does anyone recognize the person in the picture?

That's my uncle Ben. I have no idea of what he is doing in Grenada though. I spoke to him a couple of hours ago and he told me he was very busy with an office meeting.

nice. would mind to share the process you used in lightroom? Did you use lightroom for the color grading as well?

Lenses / Re: Lenses for climbing photography

I have done a bit of roped work and shot some climbing videos myself.

Personally I am not a big fan of extremely long focals in climbing photography. As you pointed out best angles are obtained hanging at the side and slightly above the climber. If you are able to place your rope close enough to the climber a 24-105 or even a 16-35 are more suited for the work compared to a heavy 70-200, which is quite difficult to handle when you will be swinging around attached on a rope (especially when doing videos).

Of course if you are far from the climber and/or if you need to isolate the climber from background or make details of hands and such a super tele is best suited. 

watch gimenez work to see  what I am talkin about.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5D 3 sales
« on: April 11, 2013, 09:02:10 AM »
I work for a midsized independent wholesale distributor in EU and am daily amazed by the numbers of 5D3 we are selling. The camera has been growing strong since january and especially in the last weeks we cannot cope with demand. WFT is going on...?!?

Canon shareholders are probably rubbing their hands together. They created a new segment out of nowhere (the 1dmkIV which had roughly the same price level was sold in units/months), made people digest the price premium, established a new camera base for the new high-quality high-prices lenses and started to cash in.

From a marketing perspective and despite all the whining on forums it was a clearly winning move.

For those who wonder the wholesale price in hk this week is 3350/3360USD for the kit 24105 and 2650/2670USD for the body.

Good monies for B&H and the like
