EOS Bodies / Re: Describe the 6D in one word...

I like it. Price gonna drop in the future and then theres no way im gonna get the 7D with its APS-C sensor...fullframe all the way :)

Sun Sniper Strap imho. But make sure you get the new version!
The old version looks like this:

The new version like this:

Problem about the old version is that the "ball" connection can get used off after some time and then one day ur camera might just fall down. It happened to several people already. Just search online. I think the black rapid strap uses the same system thats why i dont like it.

I voted for the 50 cuz im using a 35mm on my APS-C so thats roughly a 50mm Fullframe. Id love to use a 35 on my aps-c but i dont find any appealing 20mm lenses.

I am now using EOS600D for 1.5 years and I am also now deciding to upgrade my camera. However, many of my friends encourage me to switch to Nikon with the following reason below:-

Sounds to me like Fanboy talk. Just use whatever camera you like. Your friends ever got experiences with canon cameras? And i mean REAL experience (several lenses, bodies, situations) not just touching it in the store for checking the haptics :P Somehow i doubt it.

If you look at photos and are asked "was this shor with a nikon or a canon?" theres no way u can tell a difference so just choose whatever brand you like...

I stick with canon cuz i just prefer their lenses

Bigger sensor so of course it gives more details since its not just bloated up in size. Same like large format gives u more details. Just imagine APS-C being 1/5th of its size then maybe its easier to imagine it will show less details in the photos.

Which software are you using?

Hopefully ISO wont go higher but will deliver better quality :)

Does this happen with different lenses?

It also depends a lot on your lenses what kind of "stars" you will get.

Third Party Manufacturers / Zeiss Flektogon 2.8 m42 Need Help!
« on: August 25, 2012, 05:30:47 AM »

recently i got a Zeiss Flektogon 2.8 "Zebra" version, m42 Mount /w adapter on my eos 1100D.


Im really happy with this lense, i got it for cheap and on my APS-C the field of view is quite standard.
I just got one problem and if i set the aperture to 2.8 and twist the focus ring out to the maximum so i can get really close to subjects. The aperture ring starts to shift a little. I wonder why its like that?
I first checked if its perhaps just loose but its not and when i set it to minimum focussing distance there is no way of moving the aperture ring back to 2.8.
I also tried holding the aperture ring in place and then just focussing to minimum distance but that doesnt work. The Focus ring will just block.

Ok i just checked again and it seems the aperture ring moves a little bit when im focussing. Any idea why?


I found this online:

Let's start with the f-stop ring set at 2.8 and the focus ring set at infinity. Now I begin to turn the focus ring clockwise, getting closer to the shortest distance of 0.18m. As the focus ring passes the 0.3m mark, it begins to turn the f-stop ring counterclockwise. Ever so slightly. By the time the focus ring is at 0.18m, the f-stop ring has turned to position f/4.
What's more strange is that the aperture blades are still in the fully o

and the reply:

The lens is really designed to be used with a hand-held exposure meter; probably it was built in the days before through-the-lens metering was available (certainly the case for Exakta). As you move into to close focus, you need to open up the aperture some more to keep the same effective f-stop, so for example an f/2.8 aperture setting on a close focus might only give as much illumination as f/4 would at infinity. If you had a through the lens meter, it would see the reduced illumination, but a hand-held meter simply does not know the distance to the subject or the focal length of the lens, so it can't compenstate. The Flektogon had a built-in mechanical compensation as I remember it. As you focus to shorter distances, it opens the aperture up. Of course, if you start off at f/2.8, it has no where to go, so instead it rotates the aperture ring to at least tell you what its effective aperture really is.

Experiences? thanks already.
