EOS Bodies / Re: Iconic photographs
« on: October 19, 2012, 05:16:30 AM »
Perhaps cuz back in that time there wasnt equipment available like today. Anyway we all know a good photo doesnt necessarily have to be sharp as hell and technically perfect. But its just the times we live in :) Times are really busy nowadays and mainly cuz of the internet we live in some kind of "highspeed information age". I think this information overload causes people to get caught up in things like megapixels, AF points, FPS, Lens resolution etc. instead of just looking at a picture and listening to their own feelings wether they like it or not.

Plus the technology also develops so fast! Film didnt develop so much like the digital world i think. Even when u use an old Canon T90 for example you will get good results. But on the other hand using a DSLR like the EOS D30 (3,1 MP) simply wont give you what u need anymore by a high chance.

Yes the internet is awesome, its good to have informations but i also think many people just know TOO MUCH!

Long ago you just didnt know much more than what goes on in ur own town and u were born there and probably married a girl from there and then died there. But it also gave some kind of security and you didnt have to worry so much.
Nowadays i sometimes catch myself worrying about wars, political crises in the middle east, financial security in my own country worrying if i will ever be able to afford an L lens, worrying about my job future, worrying if the food i eat is healthy, worrying if my camera is still enough for me, worrying, worrying, worrying....

I think yall will understand what i mean. Basically i think the camera rant just has to do with the fact we live in insecure times and familie bonds have a lower importance in many places than they had e.g. 30 years ago. Things that gave security just broke away. There are way more psychic problems diagnosed today as well. Things go more extreme ("adult movies", sports, body modification and so on) to compensate.
Ok im starting to get off topic :)

I dont like the cyan cast. Looks so unnatural to me.

Of course there is more detail because the dollar is bigger in the photo. If you use a microscope there will be TONS of more detail...
get what i mean? Such test photos only make sense when the final output is the same.

7D just gives u more detail in aka you dont have to move closer to the subject to get the field of view you want. 80mm lens on 5D and 50mm lens on 7D should give equal results. But not EXACTLY cuz the bokeh will also look different etc.

you will still have to be careful of the skin tones as many people tend to have alot of pink/red as a part of their coloring.

Perhaps Canon only tests their cameras on japanese people who are often more tanned than ppl from the west. Maybe japanese people skin looks better on canon cameras with some red shift?  ???

Id suggest the 50mm 1.4 too, but also try out the Samyang 35mm! Since u are in the EU i think u can test the lens "like in a store" when u buy it online and send it back withing 14 days if u arent satisfied.

p.s. can u gift me ur 5d mk2 ? im poor and cant afford it myself :)
If I had weddings booked for the rest of the year and once I got my new camera, I wouldn't mind doing that at all.  But I'm gonna need to sell it to get something else.

Oh thats very kind of you! If u have anything else u can get rid of feel free to gift it to me. Hopefully we will have snow then i will take pics of me wearing only shorts and laying in the snow (or swimming?!) with the camera/lens u have for me :P

oh and get 1D X its really wesome from what ive seen an read.

Oh man...whenver i go higher than ISO 1600 on my 1100D i feel its starting to look so bad  :'(

Picture style doesnt affect the final RAW, only the preview in-camera jpg. Hope u dont shoot jpgs :) I also think probably its just a white balance problem.

Perhaps its also difficult to build. Ive heard 50mm is easy to build but 35mm is more difficult thats why there arent so many 35mm lenses with wide aperture out for example.

I suggest u give urself more time until u have calmed down and arent so excited about getting near gear.
Ohh and do u really think film is so expensive? Sounds to me like u just wrote that only for that fact to have some contra. Cmon man for the price of a Leica u can buy gazillions of films ;)
