EOS Bodies / Re: Help with Camera decisions

The big benefit of the 5D MkII if that it is a full frame sensor, and does very well in low light and has awsome background blur-ability. However the AF on the 5d MkII is not the best. BUT in video you are doing mostly manual or contrast AF so that does not matter. The 60D you can get refurbished with a lens for $980 and either sell the lens for 300 on e-bay or use it. I have a 60D with magic latern on it and it didnt hurt it one bit, and there are SOOO many options available for video I dont even know what half of them are lol. The 7d is the same sensor as the 60D and i dont see much difference for video. And the 60D screen pivots, i dunno if that is useful for video, considering I only like it to keep my LCD scratch free lol. Just my honest opinion. And you might look into the nikon lenses you have, i dont think they will work on a full-frame nikon. Just join the dark side already ;-)

Canon is more expensive no doubt. Take a look at where 90% of the nikon lenses are made. It is rare any of them are from japan. and Nikon outsources their sensors from Sony. who wants a damned Sony?

the file numbering starts at 100_0001. so, if no one ever reset the file numbering, your camera only has 10,000 shots through it when you reached 101_0001. With a life expectancy of 100,000 shots, your 90% brand new. I would love a full frame camera

you mean, how Sony controlled the noise. Considering nikon didnt make their own sensor.

canon has some of the sharpest lenses and very few of them outperform 20 megapixel sensors. I would rather have more dynamic rance, and more sensitivity, but sadly megapixel cravers make development go in the wrong direction. give me 18 megapixel with more dynamic range, and crystal clear 12,800 ISO

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Magic latern on my 60D, anyone have it?
« on: April 27, 2012, 12:58:29 PM »
Anyone heard of any problems installing magic latern? It kind of scares me haha, im too poor to buy another body. Curious what it adds to the 60D in terms of functionality, thanks guys and gals!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: No Focusing Screens for 5D MIII?
« on: March 08, 2012, 09:35:37 PM »
My 60d has 3 options in the custom functions for selecting what focuys sceen I have installed. And the manual says if i change the focus screen to set the custom functions correctly. Does this mean my 60d has interchangeable focus screen and the 5d MkIII does not????

EOS Bodies / Re: So, what about the T4i?
« on: March 07, 2012, 07:44:10 PM »
Haha at the lens on the "T4i" I would assume it is photo shopped with that 200$ old school non IS lens sitting on the end.

I went from a canon T1i to a 60d (not a huge jump) and was expecting it to be 2nd nature right away. It didnt take long for me to adjust, but I was actually mad at the way the 60d had no direct button to acess WB or picture style. I guess I'm expected to shoot in raw more often. I assigned the "set" button for picture style and left the "Q" button hovering over WB, and that got me on track, but it still took a week of use before I was not fumbling for where certain buttons used to be. I think no matter what UPGRADE I could make I would be happy! I sold my T1i to a friend and when I pick it up to play with it now "yuck" goes through my thoughts. (not outloud tho :-P)

here is a link that adorama had about print sizing. Pretty basic info but it might help!

Canon General / Re: Ebay items from Hong Kong?
« on: March 07, 2012, 07:15:38 PM »
Im sure anything coming from hong-kong is grey market no warranty. Communication with these companies is impossible, untill you leave negative feedback, then all of a sudden they "why no contact for problem fix?" The return shipping would kill you also. Id rather save 100$ by buying a used item off of a local on e-bay. my $.02

Canon General / Re: Restraint of trade?
« on: March 07, 2012, 07:11:29 PM »
Canon could just keep their wholesale price high. amazon iwould gobble them up at 20 bucks profit or 200 bucks. Alot of companies restric going below MSRP however. ECHO power equipment in a home depot is the same as in a local small engine shop and the exact same price (unless small engine shop jacks prices) but home cheapo is not allowed to undercut. Im sure you will see canon kits with all sorts of goodies for 1$ more so they are not "free"

tilted back to left. The guy with that cam must not be quite as wealthy as his(her?) friends :-P

my budget cant justify much over 1k for a body. Im poor, is what it is haha. wish canon didnt dumb down the xxD line with the 60d. :-/

I own a 60d, upgraded from a t1i.  A t3i has the same sensor and high iso performance as far as i can tell. I like the 60d's9 AF points all being cross type. I have noticed a much faster AF esp. in dim light. Even my cheap 50mm 1.8 lens focuses fast now. The 60d has a better build quality, and a touch of weatherproofing, 1/8000 max shutter speed, 5.3 FPS, wich is a noticable amount more than the t3i 3.7 FPS. I wish the 60d still had a magnesium body and micro focus adjustment. Interestingly my sigma 17-70 2.8-4 lens had a slight front focus problem on my T1i, and on the 60d it does not.
