EOS Bodies / Re: When will we have a full frame body below $1,000?
« on: December 01, 2012, 04:33:52 PM »
I still agree that all tech cost comes down with time. The more common something is the less pricy it will be OR there will be cheap alternatives at least. Just think of the first computers lol they were so ridiculously expensive!! Today u will find a processor thats as fast as a 100.000$ computer in a mobile fone.
You can also get a cheap car. Or a cheap camera. Imho there are more cheaop alternatives nowadays to get good photo results than were available at the beginning of the 35mm film era.
I guess its something like at the dentist. The actual material cost isnt so high but its other factors that can icnrease the price a lot.


please FF camera for under 1k$ w/o video mode, wifi or such :P Reduce it to just what we need. Aperture, shutter speed, iso.
Uhh sounds like

Lenses / Re: 24L or 35L

I ended up going with the 35L and couldn't be happier.  I actually sold my Sigma 50 1.4 and the 35 lives on my camera the majority of the time.

Told you :D I think 35mm is a really cool focal range.

EOS Bodies / Re: More 6D sample images - with RAW files.
« on: December 01, 2012, 10:02:26 AM »
Of course it has been noted this is a per-production camera, but I don't think  anything is likely to have changed.

Well, you never know ... maybe Canon marketing figured that the final 6d model shouldn't be better than the 5d3 and have "tweaked" the sensor a bit in the last stage :-p

I doubt so. 6D already lacks several features and design choices that make it less appealing for people who want a "pro camera". The price of it is really high also and lots of people are still wondering who is gonna buy this camera. So i think if it has better ISO than 5d mk3 (even just a tad) its a really good argument to make people buy the camera. Plus i think "better ISO" draws people in anyway even its just like half stop or such :)

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Inexpensive lens for Video

M42 lenses are good for video. Always got aperture control ring on the lens and its manual focus (which u will use anyway in video mode). And really cheap compared to modern lenses. And build REALLY heavy and sturdy. Metal all the way :)
You just need an 5$ adapter and spend less than for a 50mm 1.8 II for the lens. Negative is no IS but thats all.

For example:

5D MarkII with M42 mount lens

make sure to turn on 720p! not my video!

Canon General / Re: Is canon going to come back?
« on: November 30, 2012, 02:36:24 PM »
Right now canon is far behind others. Or lets just say it: Nikon.

If you really believe this there is no way we can help u here...
In normal use it doesnt matter a brick what camera brand you use...
And if ur really professional u will use ANY cam  depending on the situation...

Could be anything

6D comes with software so that shouldnt be a problem. Updates arent always needed too.

Software & Accessories / Mini Tripod?
« on: November 29, 2012, 02:48:40 PM »

im wanna get a small tripod for my camera perhaps something with flexible legs, perhaps not. Im undecided.
I sure want that its really stable and has good build quality and hopefully not cheap plastic. I mean such tripod that u can put e.g. on the table. Ive heard much about the "Gorillapod" but is it any good? Plus there are so many versions and some got a head some confused. Theres also a little Leica mini tripod but its so ridicoulusy expensive and its just too mini.

The wires over the model head are a no go in photography. Bad composition.

Perhaps it was included to show how wide "wide angle" really is?

and for the conclusion:

the better player (photographer) wins no matter which color...
