EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Future of APS-C
« on: October 09, 2012, 03:16:02 PM »
Do you even shoot FF? APS-C in NOT the lousy equivalent to FF. Go ahead and try super tele on FF. You'll see just how lousy it really is to shoot FF compared to a good old 7D!

I didnt say APS-C is lousy. I just prefer fullframe, even i only got an analog FF eos. But im also not using tele lenses often. Mostly im shooting around in the "portrait range"
Imho APS-C just exists cuz its cheaper to produce for now. If digital or analog medium format would be cheaper to get i would also go for it. So for me i just got APS-C cuz FF at the moment is too expensive for me. Besides the crop factor for tele lenses (if u need it) or the price, whats the advantage?

I check many random sites and focus my mind on the general overlapping similarities noted in each review to form a temporarily acceptable final image of the impression of a e.g. a certain lens until i hold it in my hands and make my own realization about it. Every human is biased in one way so u wont find the ultimate objectivly testing review. Some things can be measured as pure facts but for example "impression of the bokeh" is way harder to objectivly describe since there are no values u can rely on.

EOS Bodies / Re: Looks like the 6D may not be so bad after all

Be patient and ur next camera purchase will feel really really good :))

The 6D seems quite good for me as an upgrade over my 1100D. I wanna stick to Canon so theres no choice anyway. Camera model doesnt make such an huge impact on the final image anymore the times we live in i think

Hope APS-C really dies out. I just wonder what will be the big difference between the different camera models then? Perhaps single shot only for "entry level FF" cameras? hmm i really wonder

Hi there,

im seriously considering getting the Samyang/Rokinon/Walimex 35mm 1.4 lens since the Canon L lenses are too pricy for me yet i still want really good image quality. Greedy me...

Anyway what are your experiences with the Samyang 35mm 1.4 without using live view! I plan to use it solely with the viewfinder cuz liveview is just too slow for my needs. In my experience if i wanna take a portrait even my friends become somewhat nervous and "camera shy" so i wanna be quick when focussing.

Im mostly running around with m42 manual focus lenses on my APS-C so i imagine it cant be that much different having the Samyang but my fastest m42 35mm lens is just f/2.8

Is it possible to handhold 100mm 2.8L macro without a flash?

From what I hear, Canon Rumors only advertises with tattoos on foreheads. Wrists get covered too often. ;D

Forehead advertising is so outdated :(

100mm macro 2.8 is as good as the L version of it.

Lightroom doesn't let you type in the number of pixels like DPP.

With LR4 you can do it :)

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: 6D Need To Change Something..
« on: October 05, 2012, 04:33:19 AM »
Did u ever check the 39 AF points urself? Imho its totally marketing bullS___ since they are all cramped up in the middle of the viewfinder! It sounds great "wow 39" but in real its not that cool...

Imho its no advantage over the 6D.

The 50mm 1.2L strongest advantage is the bokeh. If sharpness is more important for you then get the 50mm 1.4 or sigma :)

Third Party Manufacturers / Bauer flash question
« on: October 01, 2012, 02:35:39 PM »

somewhere along the lines of my interest into yongnuo flashes i somewhat happened to get an old Bauer flash for free! Its the model 5028 servo. Im just not sure if i can use it with my eos system or if its gonna fry it up cuz of electrical differences. Any experiences?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Manual Mode T2i with auto ISO
« on: October 01, 2012, 02:18:55 PM »
The 5DII, for example.  If you set M mode and Auto ISO, the ISO was fixed at 400.

Uhm then whats the point of choosing auto instead of fixed ISO urself? Seems like some kind of bug to me. But 7D also confused me that u couldnt even set an auto iso limit for such a long time!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Manual Mode T2i with auto ISO
« on: October 01, 2012, 10:57:08 AM »
My 1100D can do this too. Auto ISO in M mode. Plus it always allowed me to set maximum auto ISO which wasnt available in 7D til the latest update if im correct. Im just not sure what this thread is all about. Everything is just normal like this isnt it?
