Too bad there aren't any good Nikon lenses that will utilize the full DR potential of the 800/E.

nikkon 14-24 is a very good lens for LS photography

You should upgrade your memory to 8GB years ago.  Memory is a small investment and bring huge benefit if you use PS and LR.  None of my computers is running under 8GB of memory.

my laptop is used mainly for work, so it's used more as a terminal than a workstation and i dont used PS at all, but for lightroom i have a server at work with 64gb, 8 xeon cores  and 1.4GB/sec bandwidth to a EMC2 VMAX; of course it's not a dedicated machine, i do different kida games with them.

a nice upgrade you should do is to get a good ssd for you workstations… i saw SSD Sandisk extreme getting cheap enough lately...leass than 200€ for 240GB

but we are going OT

10x for the good advice anyway

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: T2i vs T4i for sports
« on: June 10, 2012, 05:02:36 AM »
it would be better (i have a 450D and a 50D...the AF of 50D is definetly better expecially in low light situations), but as marsus said it's not the killer camera to shoot sports. i am think about to upgrade the 50d to a 7d or a 1dmk3....still undecided for the rare occasion i have to shoot sports

for what i know canon give 1 year international warrany worldwide so you would miss just 1 year of warranty

anyway here in italy the mk3 is selling for 2400 british pounds, and you would get full 2 years from canon europe

since my switch to the big N

Good, Canon-trusting people of EOS land! Get out the holy water, wooden stakes and garlic and go for him!

i dont think garlic would be effective...it's effective just against vampires and as an 800 owner he cant be a vampire ;)

When a 80mb MF comes along they say the MF will struggle to compete.

I think nikon SONY can make said sensor easily

corrected… and...maybe they can in labs just as canon did and aps-h 120mpix one.

but bring it to market it's a totally different story

I asked this but I don't think it was answered:

About the DIGIC5's JPEG processing abilities (which are pretty good based on what I can see from DPReview's test shots on the G1X versus the T3i/60D/7D, can I get similar JPEG image quality from using third party programs? And if so, how? (I have Adobe CS5 Suite.)

if you are very good on taking thepics at perfect exposure, you can rely on  jpgs.

if you are like me, better to post process the raw files

1) yap...some days ago i saw lightroom taking 2.9gb on my Windows 8 laptop...so i upgraded to 8gb...as the people shooting videos would upgrade to 650D if the new autofocus in live view mode would turn out a useful features even without ml

If someone offered you two computers, one with windows 8, 256mb of ram, on-board gpu and a core i7, the other with windows 7 (magic lantern!), 4gb ram, dedicated gpu card and w/ a core i5 - which would you take?

I'd take the Mac.  Wait, did I just suggest that I'd switch to Nikon?!?   :o

mac...lol...btw both 256mb and 4gb have insufficient ram for running ligthroom.

having a very good autofocus on camera for videos would turn out to be a big plus...just wait a little more

EOS Bodies / Re: What will the 650d sensor be like?
« on: June 08, 2012, 03:23:25 PM »
i does seem like a rework of the 18mp sensor about a 1 stop improvement high iso. looks like canon did good with this one cant wait to see the 70d.

Canon marketing owns you :-)

nahhh...the marketing of canon on this one is on touch screen and AF for videos...if it will work as inteded it will be a big hit for canon

AUTO ISO MAXIMUM SETTING Within the EOS 7D’s shooting menu photographers will have the ability to set a maximum ISO speed for ISO Auto, within the ISO range of 400-6400, so that you can minimise the amount of noise in your images.

It's as if my prayers have been answered...  :D

it seems canon listen their customers...the next sensors will have an unbelievable DR and resolution ;)

Hmm, I'm not sure how important AF in video is to me. Does it make that big of a difference?

drjlo:
No articulated screen = no purchase. That was one feature I LOVED on my SX10 IS, so I really don't want to be without it.

i dont know because i dont shoot video at all, we have to wait the reviews (maybe it will turn ouit in an exceptional value for videos shooting)...your canon 60D it's not going anywahere...maybe it will drop in price while waiting

for shooting stills the double dial in the 60D is a very nice feature, but if you are also interested in video is better to wait the in depth reviews of the 650D regarding the new hybrid af system in live view mode (with stm and us motors)

Why ridiculous?  When people complain bad 50mm F/1.4 and 24-70mm L, many people still enjoy their 50mm F/1.4 and 24-70mm L.  10% of people got bad copies will make BIG BIG noise.  That will make you feel most of those lenses are bad.  My 24-70mm is soft, but two of my friends' 24-70mm are very sharp.
Now you can see many Canon users want high MP cameras after Canon is testing the high MP camera or I should say after Nikon release 36MP camera.
Everyone is different.  They have different needs.  Sometimes people keep silent doesn't meant they agree or disagree.  Dose that make sense?

it's ridicolous because are the same people that complained about the bump in mpix that now area complaing about too few mpix.

in the past the word was that 12mpix is enough but now 22mpix stinks..lol.

anyway i was thinking about change the 50D with another camera mainly to improve the AF performance and i am undecided between 1dmk3 and 7D (shooted some sport and airshow recently)... can you give me some advice
