EOS Bodies / Re: 5D MkIII instructions - Rant !!

The manual is for n00bs and gearheads who know nothing about photography.

You should give up photography if you use auto-iso.

the funny thing is the people who come out with the comments like that are the ones who usually turn out to have much less experience shooting

Yep, we have less experience because we understand exposure and use manual controls 100% of the time  ;D

  I have been waiting for those pic.  Now finally we can compare apples with .. Canon.  Excellent work of those folk s at IR.


Nikon's color continues to always look off to me. I'm happy to stick with Canon.

Why Canon is better:

-Better ergonomics. When you put it in your hand it fits like a glove.
-Buttons and switches are in the right place. You don't need to press two buttons do one function.
-Easy to use interface.
-Better color and white balance.
-Better lenses and selection.
-Faster initial focus acquisition.

I'm upgrading from the 5D Mark II to the III. I'm sticking with Canon mainly due to the lens choices (I own all L lenses). I also like how rich and sharp my photos come out. Maybe it's just me but photos taken from Nikons always look soft and the color always seems off. The samples I have seen from the D800 haven't changed my mind.

You own all the L-lenses?  :o
How about 50mm 1.0L, 200mm 1.8L and 800mm 5.6L ::) ::)

Haha, I meant most of them.

Canon General / Re: Should I move up to FF or get more lens

Go full frame! Sell all your lenses and invest in L lenses and don't look back.

If you can afford it, get it. If not, then don't. Simple as that. If you really want it but can't afford it now, start saving up for it. It's not going anywhere. By the time you have enough money for it, there might be a slight price drop.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D3...why only usb 2.0?
« on: March 13, 2012, 08:18:00 AM »
The D4 doesn't have USB 3 either :P

Macs will never have USB 3. Heck I'm still waiting for Apple to put HDMI in their Macs.

Canon General / Re: Is it worth *really* studying photography?
« on: March 07, 2012, 04:33:49 PM »


my best advice i can offer to any student wishing to have a creative career is be prepared to eat breath and sleep your chosen profession....7 days a week year round. if you are passionate about the medium you have chosen all things will work out on the end. those that succeed chose this lifestyle because they NEEDED to and not necessarily because they WANTED to. from my first day of art school to today, i was/am constantly thinking about my art, craft, and business whether i want to or not. if my mind goes idle it idles on photography. this is what passionate means and understand that there are countless people out there in all creative professions that you will be in competition with who feel the same level of fervor. they will work insane hours as long as it takes them to achieve whatever level of success they need to fulfill themselves.

so the bottom line is no one can tell you if this particular education is worthwhile to your particular experience. it boils down to asking yourself what you really want to do and then doing everything you are capable of to make it happen.

find something you LOVE to do....the rest will take care of itself.


Another thing students should do is to learn other skills to compliment your photography. In today's world you have to be multi-talented to survive. Also network like crazy. Networking is another thing they don't really teach you in college. Surround yourself with awesome talented people. Reach out to professionals you admire etc..
