EOS Bodies / Re: 60D or t4i for video?
« on: October 22, 2012, 01:00:12 AM »
I would go for the 60D, i don't think there will be a gret difference in image quality, but 60D has the ability to use ISO in 1/3 step and has a longer battery life.
It could be a good choice the eos 600D if you are interested in the full HD crop mode (3X and 10X) this function is present in the eos M too.

EOS Bodies / Re: Why are flash sync shutter speeds getting worse?
« on: September 25, 2012, 02:10:07 AM »
When balancing ambient and flash light in low light, i usually use speed of 1/100, sometimes faster and with static subject even slower.
In low iso's bright light shot, even 1/250 is a slow speed if you don't want to use narrow f-stop. In this case i switch to HSS.
Although a shorter sinc speed would have been mutch better, i don't  see 1/180vs 1/200 to be a real problem .
As far as i remenber the only eosD to have 1/500 was the 1D with its fast 1/16000 shutter. But it used a CCD, so the faster sinc was obtained cutting power to the sensor instead of closing the shutter, this was (is?) not possible with cmos, this is why this feature was not present on other reflx.

I think IQ of 6D will turn to be at least as good as 5DIII.
I don't think d600 is better, it is different, but i do think that what is missing to 6D is the fact that canon fans cannot say "Canon is better". It seems to me that it is not really importat what the camera can do, but it is more importat that it can do it better than any nikon. So it is allway canon vs nikon, " I have canon, so canon must be better" otherway i'll be uppset.

One of the most popular snake shots on my flickr-site...

Yellow Mamba in a Tree by K3ntFIN, on Flickr

Are you sure that's a Yellow Mamba? I thought they only comes in Black & Green.
 ;D Anyway... She's a beauty...

Not 100% sure, but that's what I remember the sign saying. I need to go back to this reptilian zoo and check these out again, especially that I now know how to better control my camera.  :D
It is not a mamba, thats for sure. It should be a palm pit viper of the genus Bothriechis

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 6D Specs Leaked?

The only think i really don't understand is the AF, I am not bothered by the 11 poit, but it seems strange to have just central poit cross type, it would be better the 60D 9 cross type point.
But anyway the only think i will focus on is IQ, if it will be great, and i think it will be on pair with 5DIII, i will get it, for my use 20 mp it is enough, 4.5 fps either.
I would like 100% wiefinder, dual card, crop mode in fullHD, all cross type focus point... but i can even live without those if IQ is good.

I must admit i really like snakes and i often go to look for them to take them pictures.
first picture is Macrovipera schweitzeri from Milos island Greece, in its habitat
Second picture is Lycognathophis seychellensis from seychells
third is Vipera aspis zinnikeri central Pyreneus Spain
Last is me with Vipera aspis francisciredi near Rome, Italy

I think it is nearly impossible to compare price of 5DIII and d800. beside the cost of producing the camera, there are many othere causes we don't even know about to bring up cost.
Least but not last, d800 has a newly developed sensor, with AF and meccanical part allready used in d3, d700, d3x, d4, . 5DIII is a completly new camera, with a new sensor, new AF, new body. This may be one of the reason of a higher price for the camera.

I think it's not only the price.  Upgraders from APS-C will find Nikon offering much easier to take.  Imagine if you're invested in DX (AF-S) glasses.  You can still take D600 and little by little upgrade your lenses.  It's besides the fact that it's offering it at almost the same price of 5D2.  Wow!
I can't se why buying FF to use it in crop mode, it is something I have never understood. Sometimes it can be useful cropping an image, but if i had to spend 2200 to buy d600 and using allways in crop mode, i would go for d7000 and some good glass.

EOS Bodies / Re: Is a 46mp Canon EOS-1 on the Way? [CR1]
« on: September 10, 2012, 09:40:07 AM »
It doesn't sound to be a cheap FF. Hope Canon will announce first a cheap FF, a sort of 5DIIn, then it can even produce 100mp camera, there will allways be someone interested in, but for my needs it is better a cheap FF... otherway i'll get a 5DII.

Software & Accessories / Re: Need help - setting up a 5D on a windows7 PC
« on: September 10, 2012, 03:41:55 AM »
a couple of years ago canon released a paper with compatibility of its product with win7. EOS 5d is not supported by this OS.
You shouldn't have problem with 5DIII.


Lenses / Re: The First Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II Review
« on: September 07, 2012, 10:47:56 AM »
I don't see why testing the lens @f8. I am not going to buy that lens to use it closed. I used version I, I find it good stopped down, but i was not impressed when shooting WO. I guess new version is mutch better uset WO in low light. If it is not the case, I can't find a reson to buy a 24-70 2.8.

Lenses / Re: 135mm + 1.4 extender _VS_ 70-200mm f/2.8 IS mkI
« on: September 04, 2012, 04:38:54 PM »
I have both 135 f2 and 200 2.8. The 135 does not really like TC (i tried it with the 2x) . It is OK sometimes but IQ decreases a lot. 200 2.8 works better with TC.
200 2.8 is awesome, I think i like it more then the 135. And its bokeh is fantastic.
I would go for the 200 2.8

Odd, and unfortunate.  I haven't had any problems, AF works normally (except for the AFMA firmware bug) on 10 different lenses, including a 24-105L. 

For some reason, AF fails to work - and I mean completely, it doesn't even try - with my TS-E 24mm II and MP-E 65mm.  I suppose I'll sort that out one of these days...   :P

I know what you mean. Same problem with my TS-E 24mm II on my 5D3 and 7D. Perhaps I should dig out my old 50D.  :)
It's not going to work. You may even try analogic camera but it seem AF is not going to work with those lenses. We my hope in firmware fixes, but must be done hunter's moon with lens mounted on a newly released 1DxII.

Canon made a eos to eos -M adapter, so that you can use any of the canon ts-e lenses on the new toy.
I don't think canon will produce something to trasform say a 24-70 to ts-e 24-70 2.8 L USM-
