EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: 5D3 vs. BMC

5d3 video looked really crappy in comparison. If u do mostly video i think better get the Cinema cam.

EOS Bodies / Re: Next year's APS-C vs. this year's FF

Probably yes but i doubt they will make the APS-C line have less noise than the pro models. Alas i think Canon will just change the naming of their products first and we still have to wait some years til the come up with 180nm technology. By then they will likely start with a new FF including a new super duper hyper atomic exclusive sensor design.


i wish canon would make rangefinders but then theyd have to reinvent all their AF lenses so it wont happen *cry*

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D MARK III with 50 mm f/1.2 performence
« on: November 20, 2012, 07:30:05 AM »

my other prime the 135L f/2 is impressive, but unfortunately using it indoors in my current location is limiting me in my framing, i often end up only having head shots...

I think thats the main purpose of owning a 135mm prime, isnt it? For headshots.

There is Sony XEL for example.

OLED is just not mainstream yet thats why u didnt hear much about it :)

Feel blessed you can afford such a cool camera 8) Feel free to gift me your old camera so i can gift it to my fiance :D

If I was in the mood to give my gear away, I would give it to a friend, family member, a fellow employee, my church, a local school, a neighbor, or a local charitable organization.....I sure wouldn't be giving an expensive camera to an online stranger that behaves as a beggar.

I would do the same as you but i just cant afford a "1" camera. Perhaps never. And dont forget not every post of mine includes some "please give me" something ;)

Spend $6800 on a camera.  Power it with a knock-off that may not be manufactured with proper QC, may lack safety circuitry, etc., to save perhaps $50, less than 1% of the cost of the camera. Yeah, that makes sense...   ???

"For pre-production model, Removed Exif information and reduce the number of the pixels."

We want to know about the real deal not "pre production" :)

I even wonder how someone with a Rebel and non L lens thinks about showing off their gear. I dont like showing off too highend gear but at least its somewhat reasonable.
Must have been a case of "See what a BIG LENS i got!" Im sure u get the analogy ^-^

Sony is a great company, but they should stick to TV's and making movies like Skyfall.

Sony produces the sensor for Nikon D600.
Perhaps even in other models? :D

Yep, just read it d800 too.

Aperture 1.2 @ISO 100 and sunlight anyone?

Assuming Sunny 16, 1.2 and ISO 100 should result in a shutter speed of 1/16000, if my calculations aren't completely off-base. And that's just a rule of thumb, it could be brighter.

I only had one time where my cams maximum of 1/4000 wasnt enough. that was sunny and f1.8 iso 100. In that moment i wished for faster shutter speed. But it never happened again so far :D
Now i really dont know what the 1/8000 shutter is needed for. Sports perhaps to freeze the action but i think for sports one uses tele lenses and they arent super wide open so they dont need 1/8000 also. And often some kind of "action blur" is not bad but enhances the image.

Just checked the hummingbird and saw many photos with 1/4000 and u could see the birds wings clearly.

Top shutter and sync speeds are the same. No one uses 1/4,000, much less 1/8,000, so the 5D Mark III having 1/8,000 makes no difference in actual shooting.

Aperture 1.2 @ISO 100 and sunlight anyone?

p.s. 6D is my dream so far. Fullframe and "cheap". If i can afford it perhaps there will be 6D2 already tough :P Anyway easiest review from me here:

Any APS-C user will love 6D, rest who go from 5d mk2 or equal should get the mk3 or 1DX.
