Canon General / Re: How to work around Canon shipping restrictions at B&H

For example, www.myus.com and others. Whilst they aren't free, the amount you save vs their cost makes them very worth their while. For Canadians, it might be simpler as they often have friends south of the border...

There are already workarounds in place for other countries that companies in America won't ship to and they're called forwarding addresses..

Site Information / "Awaiting approval"???

I don't think I've seen that on new threads before, is this something new? How/why?

I don't care about Amazon reviews.

This website has said it will do lens reviews.

In having said that, it needs to produce lens reviews.

And what better time to announce a lens review than when it becomes available at lens rentals?

1567
How about a new rule:

If Lens Renteals wants to announce the availability of a new lens on canonrumors, they must provide a review to go with it.

And a review is something more than their little story about receiving it.

So why didn't Canon put the 18MP 1DX sensor in the 5D3?

First, it may not have been ready in time.

Second, just how well would a 5D3 with 3MP fewer than the 5D2 have sold? Lots of people like to talk about how MP isn't important but I suspect that those people are not the majority of 5D2 owners.

Looks like we will continue to see Canon improve their sensors.
Nikon still has a lead but in dynamic range but the gap is closing.
The world may not be coming to an end after all. ::)

I guess the big question  is why they didn't use the same sensor for the 5D mark III

Re read my analysis above. In short the 1DX sensor is the same as the 5D3 sensor, except with bigger pixels.

Well it beats the Nikon D4 in all categories except DR.

SpecD41DX
Score8990
Depth24.724.9
DR13.112.8
Sports29653296

The ratio between the 1DX's low ISO score and the 5D3's low ISO score is 1.43.
The ratio between the size of the 1DX's pixel and that of the 5D3 is 1.11.

So quite clearly Canon has better sensor technology available to them than is present in the 5D3.

Be aware that the DxO Mark Mobile score is not the same as the DxO Mark Sensor score for digital stills cameras. For example, They normally rate the Nikon D7000 as "80" but for comparing with mobiles, they rate it at 95.

EOS Bodies / Better sensor...
« on: October 07, 2012, 01:19:41 AM »
If the 1S really has a better sensor and that technology trickles down into the other DSLRs following its release then I'm very glad that I'm not getting into bed with any of the Canon 2012 DSLRs.

EOS Bodies / Competitor for medium-format cameras.
« on: October 06, 2012, 10:54:32 AM »
This camera isn't being brought to market to compete with the $3000 Nikon D800, it is being brought to market to compare with the $10000+ medium format digital backs/medium format digital cameras.

But after using it a while and comparing photos taken with it, to my L series 24-105, I was routinely disappointed with the sharpness I was getting.  I took a lot of outdoors, nature photos with it, often of birds and flowers/landscapes.  Most of them were OK, but none of them really popped the way my other lens(es) did.

Most likely this is the result of the camera needing an AFMA update for that lens (auto-focus micro adjust).

The problem for zoom lenses is that it can often need two different numbers for wide and telephoto, a feature that is only present on newer Canon DSLRs.

This is not a problem that is specific to Tamron lenses.

However I will say that it is not possible to have this particular Tamron lens calibrated in the same way that Canon lenses can be.
