EOS Bodies / First DSLR with 3G/4G?
« on: February 09, 2015, 10:47:39 PM »
Whichever of Canon or Nikon makes the first DSLR with 3G/4G connectivity that allows photographers in the field (for newspapers, etc) to upload either directly to a cloud storage (e.g. Google Drive) or Instagram/twitter (with predefined tags) will make a killing - especially if the other is more than a couple of months without it.

Would easily fit into a 1DX size camera.

Canon General / dpreview: Canon not listed in "Best product for 2014"
« on: February 05, 2015, 02:49:25 AM »
From the attached graphic it would seem that dpreview ran a "best product of 2014" vote ... that didn't include anything from Canon.

Speaks volumes about how those outside the canonrumors reality distortion field see Canon products...

EOS Bodies / The most important feature missing from the 5Ds/5DsR is...
« on: February 02, 2015, 07:59:22 AM »
Lots of people think the 5Ds should have this or that...

Based on the leaked specs thus far, which is the most important feature it is missing, to you?

Landscape / ETTR and sunset skies
« on: February 02, 2015, 07:45:15 AM »
Some folks have complained about ... sky color when using ETTR.

These images are all the same crop'd region of a set shot prior to the sun setting.

The original exposures were not all the same.

All have been "Autotune'd" using Lightroom.

I've also nuked the EXIF from all of them.

Based on the color of blue, which one(s) are overexposed and which are not?

Would be interesting to see how this holds up against the Canon 135/f2L - especially considering that it is less than half the price of the Canon lens!

Canon General / Opinion: The myth of the upgrade path
« on: January 10, 2015, 08:09:57 AM »

The past 18 months has seen a flurry of full frame cameras launched at lower prices than ever before. Suddenly it's no longer completely ridiculous to talk about 'affordable' full frame cameras, though it's still worth putting the word 'affordable' in single quotes. This new-found accessibility has had an interesting side-effect: it's made more people feel that they've already taken steps along an 'upgrade path'. And I think that's nonsense. I'd argue the 'upgrade path' to full frame is a myth.
