EOS Bodies / Re: The Mirrorless Future
« on: August 20, 2012, 06:41:58 PM »
Apple Im sure could sell the S___ out of a 5mp mirrorless, 2 FPS, 5EV dynamic range, single f/8 autofocus point, with a NiCad, non-replaceable battery, internal-only memory, and no external buttons. It would probably be quite thin too! Maybe it could even support direct file transfer, to Ipad only of course.

Have you tryed one of those little rocket blowers? might end up on the sensor by the time you are done tho, thats always a risk of blowing in the body

What utter tosh!

Maybe my irony radar is switched off but come on!

The SLR form is perfectly braced for hand held shooting, mirrorless with live view is not.

Thats before you get under the hood.

For the folk who need WLF's nothing other than a WLF will do, for the folks who need an SLR form, nothing else will do, for the folk who like rangefinders, nothing else will do.  Part function, part form, part technology.

Everybody want to kill off DSLRs, yet nobody really wants to buy into mirrorless.

Get your stories straight and stick to them.

+1          Try using a mirrorless with the sun over your shoulders glaring on that screen. Anyone that has used a viewfinder would miss it. Try having a mirrorless with a large sensor and a 400+mm lens hanging off the pathetic grip, and hand-holding a shot.  I'll keep my camera pressed against my face, thank you.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Cleaning Camera - some questions
« on: August 19, 2012, 10:38:16 PM »
I actually periodically use an air compressor to blow out my camera bag, I hate dust acumulation. I use a blower on my lenses a lot, and use a lens brush for flicking dust off any externals, and a lens pen on my filters. I check for dust on the sensor maybe once a month  and give it blast of the blower if I see something that might show up in a pic. Ive had my 60d about a year and did clean the sensor once, mostly due to an unsucessful sensor brushing haha. Brush ended up touching internal grease and smeared the sensor. One sensor swab made it 100% clean at f/45!

Interesting, I've not heard of this before. Might have to try and see if I can tell difference.

What focus mode were you using? If using single-shot AF with an object moving that fast toward you by the time you hit the shutter he will be out of your focal plane. There is no motion blur on the front wheel's spokes, SO the shutter speed should be enough at 250. Could try bumping the iso to 800 and knocking the f-stop down a stop, see if the increased DOF helps. Hope you figure it out!

my friend dropped his 40d down a set of concrete stairs and broke his 17-40L in half. Canon put it back together for $180 i think he said, and he says the lens has never been so sharp. The body didnt suffer any damage other than cosmetic.

I was taking pictures of a big block chevy on an engine stand for a friend, and I turned the engine stand around and while turning a front castor broke off the stand, and the motor fell toward me so natural instinct was to catch the falling object. My T1i was in my hand with my 17-70 on it. only got some scuffs but i smashed it into a block of cast iron pretty hard haha. Enough that I was making an ugly wincy face when I checked to make sure it was ok

These two lenses have been on my wish list as well, and I would love the 2.8/IS but that it out of my price range. I have used a 2.8/IS and done a bunch of research and Im goinjg to go with the f4/IS. when i get the dough haha. the 70-200 f4/IS has the highest user ratings on cannons website of any lens, AND of any lens on amazon-dot-com, so it must make the end users happy!
