Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Rumored Sigma Lenses Coming in the Next Year
« on: September 10, 2013, 03:15:46 AM »
A 24-70 2.0 would be big and heavy. Maybe they will make a 24-50 2.0 to keep price and weight down.

I would personally prefer an think would be more feasible, a 35-70mm
I if you need to go to 24 you might as well use a specific wide angle zoom, general zooms used to start at 35 anyway, do we need to go any wider for a portrait, or even many common landscapes?

He probably means 6x7.  There used to be 6x4.5, 6x6, 6x7, 6x9, and 6x12 panorama...

I don't think the innovation would come in sensor size, but rather a medium format CMOS sensor with BIG photosites and unheard of low-light capabilities. Aren't all current MF sensors CCDs that can't shoot past ISO 1600?

I think this would be really good, its a gap in the market, if they price it right

and think about the industrial and scientific applications if they do!

+1 on the 5d2
I bought one last year and I love it, the outer focus points are reliable in good light, but if you're shooting portrait in a studio I would use a tripod and live view focus anyway, but you will really see gh diffence in a bigger sensor for portraiture, unless you're heavily invested in efs lenses that is?

Really???  Wow!  I want an FF equivalent (with constant F1.8 aperture, not F2.8) at sub-1K.  Hopefully it's possible.

Most likely not, if this were stretched to full frame coverage it would be 2.8 due to light magnification and such like, so unfortunately this is just a full frame 2.8 zoom with a smaller image circle

I saw this review for It awhile back, as a budget dslr video shooter it seems intriguing, but only interesting practically at best

I recently got my self a bronica SQ-A and I'm really enjoying shooting on it, I'll post the first couple reels once they're developed, do we have any other bronica/6x6/ medium format film shooters still around on this forum, be nice to hear what you shoot with, a few experiences and what ever else relating to it :)
Thanks, Harvey.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Canon EOS Rebel SL1 in Stock at B&H Photo

CANON used to be the leader in ISO performance.... but it ended with t3i when canon started doing movie cameras ...

I think you're forgetting how long canon has done video, they had a super 8 camera in 56' ...

HDR - High Dynamic Range / Re: my try
« on: April 25, 2013, 07:48:09 AM »
Thanks :) yes its my first post here:) the photos are taken with the iPhone 4 and the app HDR pro. The first photo is a panorama. The panorama are difficult to get right because it is individual photos that has to be manipulated each.

An iphone, handheld?
Bravo good sir, bravo indeed.

Plenty of Kiev 88's on eBay.

I haven't used any Russian still cameras, but we had quite a few Russian 16mm cameras at University, back in the day. I remember the glass being nice.

I dont quite trust the kievs, they have a reputation for a reason, and I may be shooting events with my potential camera

Anybody else here shoot medium format film cameras?
I recently started shooting with a fold out camera I aquired, and really enjoy using it, now im considering heading for one of the waist level slrs, likley not a hassie but im very interested in the old bronica line, mostly because I really like the 6x6 format and would like to stay that way, mamiya looks interesting but I dont like the fact that you focous with a knob on the side with bellows, and having to adjust for light fall off in stead of just being able to foucs the lens traditionsally, any one have any reccomendations for me?
I think I wont spen over £800 if I can, but ill see what come's up, Thanks!


I shoot MF from time to time.  I have several of the nice "pocket" folders in 6x9, and a couple of Rollei TLR's.

Note that I do not own any of the SLR variety, and my advice would be to try one before you buy one.

I found that with my glasses/eyesight, I simply could not see through the viewfinder on a Hassy.  I wanted one, and found several at tolerable price, but once I held it in my hand and looked through it, no sale.

Yet I have no problem with a TLR, or the waist level finder on the old Canon F-1 35mm, or a Right Angle Finder B on my 5D3.

Since the Mamiya (or the Rollei SL66) are very similar, it is quite possible I would have found the same problem (although I never tried).  Hence my advice.

It's like any tool, some fit the hand/work better for one person than another.



Thats very good advice, although ive never had any eyesight problems, and I think you're refering to using a prism finder on the hasselblad? because there are waist level finders easily avalable, is there a diffrence between them and on on a rolli tlr?

What's wrong Hasselblad?

The price (;

Funny, I actually just got a Mamiya RB67 Pro-S a couple of weeks ago, basically the kind you're referring to with the bellows focusing. You can always look for a Mimiya 645 (6x4.5cm) which I believe focusing at the lens, although it has a focal plane shutter rather than a leaf shutter like the RB/RZ series has.

The Bronica style 6x6 TLR looks nice too. An advantage to those is that there's no mirror swing, you just hit the button and the shutter triggers. I will say, the RB67 is quite a heavy camera, especially compared to a modern DSLR with anything other than a super-zoom on it. The waist-level viewfinder is great, and unless you're doing real hurried street photography, accounting for the light fall-off and using the knob to focus is not a problem. Once I get a good neck strap and the adjustable grip, I might just try out some street photography with it, but until then I'll mostly just be on a tripod.

how much of an effect does it have?
if it was like losing two stops when fousing at 7 meters id probably steer away, how much of a nucinece would you say it is?

Lenses / What happened to DO?
« on: March 05, 2013, 06:28:44 AM »
I seem to remember there was a load of chatter about a whole new range of DO lenses from canon, but I havent heard anything since, and no one ever seems to show any interest in the exsisting Do lens's, what are your thoughts on them?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Swap-ability of batteries?
« on: March 05, 2013, 06:16:49 AM »
My 6D should arrive today, which comes with 1 LP-E6   but I also have several LP-E5 from my old Xsi(450D)   

LP-E5   Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery (7.4 V, 1050 mAh) new for EOS 450D/XSi and 1000D
LP-E6   Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery (7.4 V, 1800 mAh) new for EOS 5D Mark 2

Does anyone know if they size etc are the same and the way I read this is that they are the same power the LP-E6 is just capable of storing more charge, but as a backup could I use the old batteries?

only the ones from the 5d will fit.
