EOS-M / Re: Mount EF, EF-S or L lens on EOS-M --- Your thought???
« on: August 26, 2013, 09:19:14 AM »
AS long as he delivers the quality i want the heck i care what my (wedding) photographer is using.

TBH need more Eos-M lenses :) Its just kinda silly to buy a really small EoS and then putting on these monster lenses from the big body boys...

...and a flash is quite useful in macro photography too...

Canon General / Re: Where's the competition for the 24-105?

Theres no announcement for an update and even if there was an announcement it would still take over 1 year for the newer version to be released. So nothing to worry. Lenses dont lose their value fast anyway. Some never :)

or call it BuS or sth... ^^

Maybe because there are plenty of 50s but not many different 24mm lenses :)

I disagree. Resolution is not measured by the number of pixels.

So i can say a FF sensor with 300 pixels and a FF sensor with 21 MegaPixels have the same resolution if its not about the pixels.
The camera sensors are made out of pixels so how u wanna measure resolution in another way if the camera sees the world all in pixels and nothing else?!

I think it gotta do with the lens. Using my m42 lenses in AV mode sometimes the exposure is just...so off.
Never had any problems with the newer EF lenses

Lenses / Re: Which lenses to buy for filming

Scroll to the bottom. Fixed aperture thought, but the 35mm 1.5 is really nice. And i dont think u can find any other lenses made for videos in the Samyang price range. Otherwise the photography lenses sure work too from Samyang and are a bit cheaper. Cinema 35mm 1.5 is like 550$ and photography 35mm 1.4 is about 430. A bit over your budget but its really cheap for what u get in quality.

Also in making movies u rarely zoom or pan the scene. It requires some experience to make these actions look good and not amateurish.

Cheapest way for a good lens is get the EF 50mm 1.8II. Its about 100$. But on ur APS-C camera its a bit close...not so versatile. Next option would be EF 35mm f2.0 about 250$. its kinda like 50mm on FF sensor and somewhat like the normal field of view we humans have.

And if u really need wide angle sometimes, just use the 18mm of your kit lens.

The last reaaalllyy cheap way is to get an m42 Adapter on ebay and a lens (or more lenses) with m42 mount.
They work like normal on ur DSLR only problem is there is no autofocus. But in filming u dont use autofocus anyway and always manual focus :) So there really is not disavantage. Ok..apertures are mostly 1.8 - 2.8 and not wider.

Lenses just cost like ~50 bucks often. Not too rare there are way cheaper lenses. Good brands are Yashica, Takumar, vivitar, zeiss etc.

FD lenses work too but then u can just get an adapter. u need to really modify the lens mount with screws n stuff til u can use it.

m42---- add adapter = ready for shooting ^^ adpater like..10$. make sure u get one made of metal. with chip not needed unless u also wanna manual focus using the optical viewfinder sometimes.

For example with flektogon 35mm 2.4 and 600D:

Zeiss Flektogon 35mm 2.4

I got the 35mm flektogon 2.8 and two other lenses for 100$ from some guy in my town :) But the flektogon is usually more expensive than other lenses cuz its just....a Zeiss lens.

But the ability to macro with it is really cool too :D as u can see in the video.
After all i think u dont need super modern ultra sharp lenses since 1080 HD is not even 3 megapixels. And even old lenses sure can perform that resolution well :) You will never reach the point even closely where ur sensor outperforms the lens in DSLR filming

I think the advantage of the optical viewfinder is that u really engulge in a special mental state seeing only the situation u want to shoot and only blackness all around like in a state of bliss :D

Am i the only one who prefers shooting with the optical viewfinder, even if live view is tzhe same speed? I think its not long anymore til Canon only releases only mirrorless cameras if the AF speed is the same. And then people like me can pay another 899$ or whatever for an electronic viewfinder :(
