EOS Bodies / How to distinguish the Cinema 1D?
« on: April 13, 2012, 04:33:55 PM »
I like C1D because it matches up with the C300 and C500. 1DC makes it feel too like a variation of the 1D series cameras, although that it is. Tough call!

EOS Bodies / How about an app store for EOS cameras?
« on: April 10, 2012, 05:08:22 PM »
Now that cameras are dedicated imaging computers, why not have an app store where you can download certified apps for your camera that are written by 3rd parties?

That would make it possible for people to write their own zebra stripes app or develop their own apps to deliver better bracketing support ... - make it possible for the camera to support more features without Canon having to do all of the research, development and testing.

Portrait / Do wedding photos belong here?
« on: March 30, 2012, 06:26:16 PM »
This could were being photographed by a wedding photographer (that wasn't really that great) along the beach so I decided to shoot the wedding photograph party in total...

Street & City / Right place, right time: Hollywood, CA
« on: March 19, 2012, 08:05:04 AM »
I don't know which category this photo belongs in.
Perhaps if there was one titled "A Man's Dream Come True"? ;)

It's of Bo Derick and Shania Twain on the day that Shania Twain was presented with a star along the Hollywood Blvd sidewalk.

This wasn't planned, so it was a stroke of good luck, not just to have my camera there but to see both of these Hollywood lovelies in the flesh.

Canon General / Canon still preferred choice by professionals
« on: March 18, 2012, 08:38:07 AM »
I was watching the accredited photographers that walked past where I was standing at the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix today and of the 7 photographers that I saw walk past, 5 were using Canon and 2 were using Nikon.

No, I didn't survey all of them and nor did I see what bodies they were using, this is just based on the lenses of those that I randomly saw.

PowerShot / G1X Review - The G1X is a hermaphrodite
« on: March 13, 2012, 10:42:29 PM »
http://www.luminous-landscape.com/reviews/cameras/canon_g1x_field_report.shtml

"Can Canon continue to be content to produce warmed-over versions of last year's DSLRs, ignore the mirrorless segment, and produce compromised crossover products such as the G1X? I sincerely hope not, because they are a great company which has hugely contributed to the photographic industry over the years. It's just that at the moment the still camera division at Canon seems stuck in about 2005. It took a palace revolt that same year at Nikon to give that company back its mojo. Will the same be required at Canon in 2012?"

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5D3/5D2/D800 DR plotted
« on: March 10, 2012, 01:38:52 PM »

The graph is interactive and allows you to compare 5D2 (green under/close to orange) with 5D3 (orange).

The 5D2 and 5D3 are the same until roughly ISO 800. Both start at around 9...

I've included the D800 on this graph (purple line) starts at almost 11 and the D3X is directly under that (green line) starts at around 10.5.

Site Information / More photographer profiles please?
« on: March 07, 2012, 12:51:20 AM »
There was a point where the website was featuring profiles of photographers that shoot Canon.

These were great to read - especially the different styles of photography that it introduced.

Can we have more of these?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Diffraction limit - does it concern you?
« on: March 02, 2012, 10:02:33 PM »
I'm reviewing some photos that I've taken recently, with similar shots at both f/8 and f/22 and unless I'm pixel peeping at 100%, there's no chance I can see any difference in sharpness. In the past, I've been reluctant to shoot anything over f/11.

What this means is that if I'm printing, then the sharpness difference will not be seen.

Now I'm wondering if I've been afraid of using a smaller aperture for no good reason.

What about others?
Do you avoid anything over the theorectical f-stop diffraction limit because of sharpness concerns?
Or do you just use the right f-stop for the shot, regardless and not care about diffraction limits?

103
The 5D3 seems to hit the mark for some and not for others.

For those that don't see a camera for them in either the 1DX or 5D3, what do you want?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Next camera purchase will be...
« on: March 02, 2012, 07:14:33 PM »
Now that Canon has announced the 1DX, the G1X *and* the 5D3 it is now easier to get a feel for where to use those dollars that we've been saving.

I would like to have had more options for this poll. but 5 will have to do - except that I can add more options after I've posted the poll... WTF...
