Third Party Manufacturers / Phase One use Sony sensor for MFDB IQ250
« on: February 10, 2014, 08:18:55 AM »

It goes without saying that it is highly likely the FF DSLRs using Sony sensors (D800, D610, etc) are all using sensor technology that is either similar to or will benefit from (if not already) Son'y work here.

So in the sensor stakes, it would seem that Canon need to come up with something that is as good as the CMOS now used by leading MFDBs, not just DSLRs ...

EOS Bodies / Will Canon ditch the AA Filter?
« on: January 09, 2014, 07:34:52 AM »
In Nikon's latest DSLR that is available for sale, the D3300, Nikon have removed the Optical Low Pass Filter (OLPF) - also know as the AA Filter. This would tend to suggest that the reason for it being there in the first place (combating moire due to hamming) is not nearly as prevalent or significant as once thought. All of Nikon's latest DSLRs (D7100, D5300 and now the D3300) are minus the OLPF. I can't help but wonder if this will be the case for the D4s too!

Question now has to be, when will Canon stop including it in their designs?

Canon General / Move away from Canon to Nikon for sports?
« on: December 30, 2013, 03:09:18 AM »
At a sports event where pro photographers usually number 2:1 or so for Canon to Nikon bodies and lenses, the ratio was 3:2 for Nikon to Canon.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / What happened to A-DEP?

Unless I'm mistaken, it has disappeared off of Canon bodies...?

Third Party Manufacturers / Sony has 54MP FF sensor next in line
« on: December 02, 2013, 09:24:52 AM »

What sort of IQ will it have?
Expect nothing worse than the current 24MP APS-C in Nkon/Sony but hopefully much better.

Third Party Manufacturers / Nokia Pureview 1020 beats Nikon D800
« on: November 19, 2013, 07:49:44 AM »
http://evan-theelectricalengineer.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/nikon-d800e-vs-nokia-lumia-1020.html

Note what the reviewer says at the bottom:
"Could the Nikon beat the Nokia on every image? A definitive yes. The lens 28-105 appeared to fall short of the resolving power a 36 mpix sensor could muster. Choosing a better lens, choosing to use a tripod, choosing to use mirror lock up could easily have turned this into a Nikon shutout. This is to say nothing of the boundaries you can push the Nikon's astounding RAW files."

But as a walk-around camera, the Nokia 1020 seems to do surprisingly well with 41MP.

Why would you want to take a DSLR with half the megapixels with you when you walk around a new city on holiday?

Lenses / Comparing 16-35 to Nikon 14-24 and Zeiss/Leica primes
« on: November 14, 2013, 10:53:35 PM »
People like to wax lyrical about how good the Nikon 14-24 is. Well at 21mm, it ain't that much better than Canon's 16-35.

http://www.kenrockwell.com/zeiss/slr/21mm-comparison.htm

Yes, that's Ken Rockwell but just look at the picture detail. The Canon and Nikon lenses are both close to unusable wide open.

Yes, it is unfair because it is pitting zooms against primes but will people please stop saying how wonderful the Nikon 14-24 is and Canon's 16-35? (This is also directed at those who would diss Zeiss primes.)

Canon General / Consumer DSLRs "dead in 5 years"
« on: October 27, 2013, 11:31:20 AM »
The Sony A7 is a nail in the coffin of Canon’s full frame line-up but it’s consumer apathy which will finally close the lid.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / dpreview: 70D Dual Pixel PDAF review
« on: October 10, 2013, 11:48:17 PM »
http://www.dpreview.com/previews/canon-eos-70d/9

Overall, our testing makes it appear the 70D's Dual Pixel AF gives most of the speed advantage of conventional phase detection AF and most of the accuracy benefits of contrast detection, but doesn't quite manage to offer all of both.

BUT...

Sadly Dual Pixel AF is only really used for single image AF or movie shooting (see the movie page to see how it does). If you need continuous autofocus with tracking, you have to use the 70D's conventional AF system.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Where is the Canon 7D successor?
« on: October 08, 2013, 07:46:12 PM »
Pentax's latest toy, the K-3 has more fps, more AF points, more MP, better metering, better viewfinder, USB 3.0, new AA feature ...

And what has Canon given us recently? ...

Not even any rumors that would compete or beat that except for 2 more fps...

Has anyone used the EOS Cinema lens series for standard photography?
Good? Bad?

Camera Body Gallery / This sensor is holy
« on: July 13, 2013, 09:13:28 AM »
In a shot that the camera got to choose the metering, I noticed a pattern in the noise on the bottom edge: a cross. I can only presume to mean that this camera or sensor has been blessed!
