Just noticed in the specs that this camera doesn't shoot video... that's actually quite a shock, I've been using video mode on my 7D to shoot little videos of Jupiter etc so it's a shame that a dedicated astrophoto camera isn't capable of shooting video... for the price I would think video capability is a just a given nowadays? leaving it out and still charging that much? sure it's IR capable now but that modification isn't as costly as putting video in... hmm...

I like this move. Maybe Canon is returning to focus on making great still cameras for photographers who don't need video recording.

Lenses / Re: Canon lenses vs 3rd parties...

Invest in L lenses and never look back. Don't waste your money on 3rd party lenses.

Now if you hadn't given this as an advice but as a statement of your personal preference, there would be nothing to discuss about. But as it stands it's just the type of very bad advice that is frequently found in this forum and any shop would give you if they would want to give as much money out of you as possible. For aps-c (and not the op's mk2) its even more complicated, because part of the expensive glass ef lenses is not even used for this sensor type, thus it's even more strange to recommend L lenses for everything


It's not bad advice. It's from personal experience. I've wasted so much money on Tamron and Sigma lenses because I wanted to save a few bucks. And every time a disappointment. That money I could have used for L lenses. You only need a few. Pays for itself in the end.

Get the holy trinity i.e. 135mm f/2 L, 35mm f/1.4 L, and 85mm f/1.2 L.

Why do Nikon photos always looked washed out and less detailed to me? They never look as rich and detailed as photos taken by Canons.

It's up to you. Unless you're strapped for cash, it's nice to have a second body. I'm keeping my 5D MKII.

I'm not technical to do it myself so I was wondering where can I get my lenses calibrated for a reasonable price? I live in NYC.

Lenses / Lens info rubbing off. Any way to get it replaced?
« on: March 26, 2012, 06:50:02 AM »
So I've had my Canon L lenses for a while and some of them have the lens info rubbing off. Is there anyway to get it replaced to look like new again?

Didn't Nikon just raise the prices of the D4 and D800 by 300 bucks to keep up with demand?  ::)
