Lenses / Re: Does it make sense to keep my EF 100mm f2.0?
« on: June 24, 2013, 11:59:22 AM »
I don't like the slowpoke AF of the macro, compared to the 100f2. The 100f2 focusses instantly!

i read the EF 100mm F2.8 IS L macro is pretty fast focusing?
photozone writes "very fast AF".

and it has an AF limiter, so it should be fast.

is it not?

canons first pro digital camera

well there is the canon EOS D2000, EOS DCS 3 branded kodak cameras.
but it´s the first real canon that´s right.

Quote
aps-h(1.3crop), panasonic ccd, 4 megapixels, 1/16000 shutter, 1/500 sync speed, the camera that made canon what it is today :'(

makes you wonder why this is the ONLY canon camera with a X-sync speed of up to 1/500s and a shutter speed of up to 1/16000s.

Quote from Neruo: "As for 'out of air accusations', how would you feel if, hypothetically, I called you, "Not the brightest bulb?" 

i would maybe say "get a life and don´t spend half your life on internet forums. you can´t be that bright either".

 ;D

You've asked the question, you've been answered by the site owner and another admin. I would suggest that now might be a good time to let the issue drop.  Unless, of course, you have another reason for pushing this issue.  For example, if you know Canon-F1 in the same way that Mikael Residal knows ankorwatt - i.e., you see him every time you look into a mirror.  I suppose the mods could deduce that from the IP addresses used, most forum software has the capability to show members that are likely to be the same person.

well your out of the air accusations just show that you propably deserved that he insulted you.
if he has... i have seen no evidence of that and it´s possible you are just a liar who makes such things up.

MODs seem to have no problems that some turn this into an off topic fest.... well i won´t call it double standards.

canon-f1 informed he has registered a new account and will use that one from now on.
so the thread can be closed.

The admins are pretty forgiving, if a banned member were to contact the Admins and discuss the issues and make a commitment to follow the rules, we would likely give yet another chance.  That has happened.  Some chose to burn their bridges by sending a bunch of name calling e-mails, which only serves to assure us that we made a correct decision.

It does not help his cause to have someone posting a one sided view on his behalf, it does not tell the whole story, and its not the place to discuss specifics about a member in any event.

A very good way to get a quick warning or a ban is by insulting members or CR administrators in a public post.  I try to remove insulting posts that directly call someone a name, but obviously we do not read every post and rely on members to report serious issues. 


the question is, was it the case?

or was it a just a sensible MOD who don´t like to be corrected and thinks he is always right?

i don´t know!
i don´t know why he was banned but from what was presented to me.. it looks that way.

Lenses / Re: Can Image Stabilisation limit the lifespan of a lens?
« on: June 14, 2013, 06:39:22 AM »
logic suggest that with every piece that can break in a system, it´s more likely the system will suffer from defects.

just look at AF... lenses without AF work after 60-80 years.
many EF 50mm f1.4 suffer from AF defects.

as IS is electronics and electronic components age.. i say yes.
but how relevant is this in real life... i don´t know.

when a lens last 30 year with IS activated and 40 years with IS decactivated.. do you care?

i use IS everytime on my lenses and did not had any issues.

one year ago my response would be: stay away from sigma.
to much luck involved to get a good copy.

today with the new lens line they seem to produce very good and constant quality.
i tried the 35mm f1.4 and i loved it. i only have not much use for it.

when signing up with a new name is not exactly a challenge

well it is stupid to ban members, if only for this reason, not?

.  Dare I say, no one is forcing anyone to participate here, so if you don't like it, you can simply stop visiting the forums.

he did not want to stop participating in case you did not notice. :)
he was forced.

sure if you don´t like to be spied at by the NSA you can just go to canada.
well on second thought, it will not help.  ;D
so avoiding confrontation is not always a solution.

Anyone who believes that the ability to delete a post or ban a member (when signing up with a new name is not exactly a challenge) is 'power' to be 'abused', has some odd definitions of those words

i thought you work with human brains?  ;)
then you should know that it is maybe odd that people feel this way, but it´s a fact that they do.

why do you think that some retired people suddenly mutate into wannabe cops?
we have one here who reports any parking violation to the police. he has nothing to do all day then looking at the street. it gives him the feelling he is important.

If you don't want to be the person who gets "easily" banned, don't be in the minds of the admins - we have better things to do than look for certains names to appear in discussions with high post counts! And, no matter if we get paid to do the job or not, it's the same amount of work!

mods seem to get their satisfaction on a different level, not from money.
that´s the problem Unfocused mentioned in this thread.
often they do it so they have power, "the last word".
even when it´s only power over a virtuell community.

and as we can see in real life... power corrupts and is abused.

Let it go.  I remember him too, and he was very offensive and I'm not crying that he's gone.  Sorry, but that's just the way he was and well, the admins got tired of it.  I cringed everytime I opened a thread where he last posted, and it was usually for good reason.

but looking at your posts you are no saint either.   ;)

anyway .. i said what i had to say.
i hope the admin gets in touch with me or canon-f1.

So what you are saying is that the moderator is drunk with power and is abusing that power.....

please get real and don´t put words in my mouth.
 
it´s what i noticed with many mods, yes.
but i don´t know if it´s the case here.


Quote
yet you are still here and have not been sent off to the bit bucket... This is a paradox. If the moderator was abusing power and getting rid of those who displeased them, by pointing this out to the world it would have made you number one on the to-be-destroyed list.... yet here you are....

i am here, yes.
it´s the first time i come in touch with the admin and mods here.
i live in a linear timeline.... i don´t know what the future holds.

Thank-you for taking the time to discuss what is perceived to be an issue.

I will say that time-to-time I will get clarification from a moderator if a user complains directly to me about a ban. Most of the time the moderator is granted autonomy in making the decision to ban or suspend a user. However, there have been a few instances where a ban has been overturned for whatever reason. Humans make mistakes and moderating a forum is pretty much a thankless job. :)

As for soft deleting posts, I will look into that. The idea is a good one.

Karma was abused in so many ways, and was an enormous headache for myself and moderators. It is never coming back.

Again, thanks for the concern and if anyone has any issues you think I should know about, please email me at canonrumorsguy [a t] gmail.com

Do not use the messaging system here to get in contact with me.


Cheers
CR

and you are discussing the ban of canon-f1 with the MOD who is responsible for it?

he can not read private messages because he can not login.

he assured me has done nothing offensive.
beside two occasions he had with mt spokane.
both postings are still in his user stats and in my opinon don´t deserve a ban.

one post about a lightroom issue and one post about battery grips.
read for yourself.

The third party grips have a reputation of lasting from 3-6 months, depending on use.  Just buy 10 of them and you'll be set for 3 years.

sources for such a bold claim?

i would love you write not such biased nonsense all the time about third party gear, you propably have never used yourself or any experience with.

i bought my 5D MK2 over 4 years ago and the BG grip i bought for it is still absolutely fine.
the phottix BG for my 550D is from 2010 and the 550D is my cheap "throw around" camera.
the BG is also still absolutely fine.
 
and im not a weekend shooter....



Quote from: canon-f1
well spokane did not notice the error... so all is fine and adobe and all who have an issue are wrong.

Thanks to all for your efforts in tracking down and reporting this issue. The bug was introduced via a late-in-the-cycle change to export performance and was unfortunately missed by our testing. We were able to reproduce the issue in-house, a bug was logged, and the fix will be in the next release.

You get banned for doing something... not nothing.

not if nobody has to prove you have done something.

when i would be a MOD i could just ban you right now.... and what have you done?
