EOS Bodies / Re: This should be more than a rumour
« on: May 28, 2012, 04:11:46 AM »
Touch wood I've never left anything at a job or had any gear lost/stolen. But given that 99% of people are pretty honest, I put my phone number on every bit of gear from bodies to light stands. If you picked up a Pocket Wizard with a phone number on it, what would you do? Some mongrels would pocket the item but by far the greatest majority would make the call.

Put your number on everything. I use a label maker. At least you're in with a good chance!


It is nice to be so positive, and it may work if you leave/forget your equipment somewere... but what about someone whose steal it on purpose? I think he is not going to call you...
And i Think thaf very few people forget their 5DIII + 200 f2 somewhere. But if they put telephone number on it, they may be luky.

I think that before complainig about canon answer to d600... we should at least wait for the d600 to be true and not a rumor.
After that we can talk about everything.
But just beeing sick about rumored cameras doesn't seem right to me. I mean, if you need a FF body now, you have plenty.
D800, 5dIII, d700 5DII, you can allways seek second hand 5D, 1Dsx... If you need it... If not, then just keep talkin about nothing and wait to see what will happen.

5DII in not mutch more expensive, quite similar spec. And you don't have to wait to get it.
I think 5DII will shortly be less expensive, becoming entry level FF for a few month, till a new cheaper body will be relased.

I use it @ 3200 ISO with good result.  I don't know how much is better, but the 60D it is a great improvemente over 450D.

I still think the numbers are too small and I have great vision.
You should get a d800, it seems having 2 full stop bigger digit...

7d has a separate processor JUST FOR AF... the 5d3 doesn't. 

Not true.

The 5D Mark III has a dedicated processor for the AF:

From the Canon site (and many many other sites)

Both the 1D X and the 5D Mark III use dedicated AF microprocessors; these AF microprocessors are not DIGIC chips. The increased sensitivity of the focus system has also allowed for faster predictive focus measurements. Increased processing power is another factor to the 5D III's excellent AF performance - "The dedicated AF processor is four times faster than the one found in the EOS-1D Mark IV.

Also my 5D mark III is very close to 6 FPS.
Not sure why his 5D mark III is slow !! , make sure noise reduction is also off and battery fully charged.

Noisy images at 100 ISO !!!! , please post sample images so that we can see what is wrong.
If your 7D output is less noisy then for sure something is wrong.

Fair enough that the 5d3 has a microprocessor, although unspecified by canon, it is unknown what the power that processor is compared to a full digic. As far as it was explained to me, the 7d's drive was aided by 2 digic 4 processors, much like the 1d4's 2 processors helped that AF system and drive.  The 1dx also has 2 digic 5+ processors to help that drive and buffer.  The 5d3 has 1 digic 5+ processor in comparison to the 7d and 1d4 and 1dx 2 digic processors.  It has been hinted that the 5d3's 1 processor should be (in af terms) be as good if not better than the 1d4 although it lacks in FPS and buffer, it is what it is.
every eos camera has an AF sensor, since eos film times.
eos 1 series since 1DIII has double digic processor, 1DX has double digic 5+ processor and 1 digic 4 used for AF. 7D has double digic4 processor.

i used my old 8.2mp 20D to print 80x150 cm and even a big 3x6m sign.

I think that the 2 camera are really different and aimed at different market. Canon probably was thinking that DR of 5DII was OK and looked for improvement in other areas.
It is allway been like that, with nikon having more DR and canon more suited for Hight ISO. Maybe increasing low ISO DR  would lead to loss something sowhere else and they just designed theire camera this way. They wanted their camera behave this way. If you really need LOW ISO DR... go for nikon, if you shoot always 800ISO and more go for canon. If you have a system... keep with wour brand.

Lenses / Re: Why buy Canon when third party are this good?
« on: April 27, 2012, 03:49:19 PM »
I think what is wort is how reliable is AF in low light condition and how is IQ wide open.
In good light condition it may even be good, but pro that need to work in low light using it wide open, with the canon they can be save that the lens deliver execellent IQ.  If this lens shows good IQ in difficult condition it may sell well.
I used the tamron 17-50 2.8, Af was slow and noisy, but quite accurate. IQ wide open wasn't great.
The canon 17-55 2.8 AF is fast and accurate and IQ wide open is very good. I would not trade the canon for the tamron. What about the 24-70? It dipends how it will behave @ 2.8

Lenses / Re: 24L or 35L
« on: April 22, 2012, 03:02:54 PM »
I would get the 35... and sel the sigma 50 to get the 50L.

Technical Support / Re: Canon 7D Unusual Problem?
« on: April 16, 2012, 03:39:25 PM »
I would senti it for a check...
By the way, i never switch any of my reflex off befor changing memory card.... And often neither to cange battery.

I understand...

Thank you for your answers.
I think there is not much to say here, since the magnification is not on par, or even close to any macro lens on market.
It seems that I will have to purchase MP-E 65mm eventualy, if I want to achieve stunning macro results.

Thank you people for your fast respond to my question.
The drink is on me  ;D
Well, you don't have to by the mp-e 65 unless you need very high magnification. You can take a macro lens and adding extension tubes.
If you want to try extension and converter togheter  on your 70-200, mount the tubes on the lens and then mount the converter on the tubes, you'll reach higher mag than vice versa.

EOS Bodies / Re: Nikon D800 vs Canon 5d3 sample images.
« on: March 05, 2012, 06:28:59 PM »
Well, if we are talking about the pictures on canon site and the one on the nikon site, i may say they are quite different. Most of the nikon are taken f8 to gain dept of field and increse detail. Nikon maximum ISO setting is 640.
Most of the canon portrait are wider than 2.8 with iso reaching 3200.
Nikon pictures are taken in studio, the canon are close to the pictures anyone can take. Don't think there are any pictures really comparable.
The nikon bride is 640 ISO f4.5, the ones on the canon sites are wider and/or higer ISO.
Actually the canon bride @ 7.1 is quite good to be shot at 3200 ISO.
And last but not least, tiger are jpg generated by the on camera raw converter.
Think that most of the people complaining for the lack of sharpness are better wait for more pictures...
