EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Confirms 70D; Future of Semi-Pro DSLR is FF
« on: February 01, 2013, 11:47:48 AM »
flawed logic.. you will always have more reach with a crop and a 1.4 TC. :)

And how many people are actually using a 1.4TC on an APS-C body? Its quite rare imho. I can also say add more n more extension rings if u just care about reach....flawed logic

Only advantage of APS-C is reach and price. But u dont have to save a lot more to get a better FF body than the endlevel APS-C. Yes, i hate APS-C or anything smaller than FF :P Still using it tough  ::)
I just think there are too many Canon DSLR models and levels. They should have entry, advanced and pro. Why there is like super entry (xxxxD), normal entry (xxxD), upper entry (xxD) advanced (7D) upper advance (6D) end Advanced (5D) and pro (1dX)? Its just too many imho. And all APS-C produce the same image quality. mostly the rebels even produce better images then the 7D cuz they get updated more often  ::)
I would NEVER get a 7D if it gives the same IQ as the cheapest DSLR from Canon. Paying so much money just for a better body material is ridicoulus imho. Or wow 10 FPS? Press and pray is not my style... If i wanna be somewhat professional id at least get a 5D.

There is no reason not to have FF cameras except production cost. that will be solved in the future and hopefully all cameras will be FF. Tough i guess APS-C will still always be around. I mean "back in the days" everybody was fine with 35mm film also  :o

A good step Canon :P Just get 1.4TC for reach...

Well im not sure...but i think u should adjust ur screen :P especially in the first photo it looks like u used some black photoshop brush to fix ur image but i think u didnt see how much information there really is in the photo.

i enhanced it to show u what i mean :P i ONLY raised the exposure/brightness nothing else

guess on ur screen it just looked "black" ^^

I think you always have to install from Disc the first time, cuz the online downloads from Canon are just updates.

Technical Support / Seagull 6x6 Shutter problem (?)
« on: January 30, 2013, 07:18:36 AM »

i noticed when using my seagull 6x6 that as long as i press the shutter button the shutter will stay open. its no problem for slower shutter times since i will press down the shutter and take away my finger fast enough. When using faster shutter speeds im not sure anymore if i perhaps kept the shutter open too long. I cant guarantee when using 1/300 that my finger is 1/300 or less while pressing the shutter.
The walkaround i found is using self-timer.

is this normal? i think praktica mtl5b had the same...

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sigma Announces New 30mm f/1.4 for APS-C

Hope the price will be reasonable. Im not too fond of buying APS-C lenses when going FF one day. If it has the same IQ as the 35mm 1.4 then its a no-brainer tough :P

Lighting / Re: Buying Yongnuo Flash
« on: January 28, 2013, 03:14:33 PM »
I wanna spend the least amount i can spend while getting something valueable and useful in the long term. I got one old flash for free with an x-sync cable. Is it possible to use this with my 1100D in some way or is it electric overkill? Hotshoe is a no-go i know due to high voltage but is it the same for x-sync cable usage? Its Revue 280T and trigger voltage supposed to be ~10,5 volts

EOS Bodies / Re: Big megapixel camera?

Lighting / Re: Fastest Sync Speed
« on: January 24, 2013, 02:25:13 PM »
Dont think so. The 6D even got 1/180 probably to give another reason to get a higher priced body. I guess they will leave the faster syncs to the 1D series, cuz thats what professionals use with their flash firing going wild :P

EOS Bodies / Re: Where are you EOS 70D?
« on: January 24, 2013, 11:04:34 AM »
It will more likely be 6D sensor reduced in size.

Lenses / Re: 200mm F2 IS OR 135mm F2

200/2 is a killer lens! Its one of the sharpest lenses ever also and that already at 2.0 aperture!
