EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 70D a New Benchmark in ISO Performance?

Hah, nice. I actually installed Lightroom 4.4 on my Microsoft Surface Pro, so I can tether it out in the field.
Problem is: Magic Lantern in-camera beats any tethering, or I'd carry around my laptop for tethering... that's why want a swivel screen & ml :-\
How can ML beat a 10.6" high density screen?

By weight, size and price :-> but we're probably talking of different usage scenarios here: All I'd want to do with tethered shooting (with a cable mind you, wifi for wildlife is another thing) is focus stacking, intervalometer and generally automating the camera - all which I can do by using ml as it is or scripting it or adding C code.
Marsu42, are you using ML on your 60D? I am waiting for their next release of the 5D3 code set.

Pretty modest but it is a BIF, I think, and with the 6D!  :)

Landscape / Re: Sunset landscape

a really nasty storm coming in at sunset.

This is 10 pictures stitched together.... the original is over 100 megapixels and about 150 degrees view side to side and about 90 degrees vertical...
Lovely!

So was that in two rows? Were they taken in landscape or portrait orientation? Did you use a tripod? What lens?

Sorry, many questions :)
two rows, shot in portrait, handheld with a 60D and an 18-200 lens set at 18mm.... and in a hurry because 30 seconds later it started raining HARD!
You should have a copyright notice on that one! :)

Is that so? I shoot manual mostly and not averse to shooting in the AV/TV mode. However, I do drive automatic cars but thats probably because I don't want to make a gazillion gear shifts while driving on the streets in New Delhi.

+1. I shoot manual most of the time but may shoot in Av/Tv modes depending on the situation. Likewise, I would prefer manual transmission cars when driving in the countryside but would prefer to drive automatic cars when driving in downtown Manila!  :-\
Stick shift. Stick shift. Stick shift. And auto ISO. :)
See you people later. Gotta go to my day job...

I see some people going ballistic, and I don't want to raise my struggle with buying the 6d again, but if I do I will *curse* Canon every single time I lie flat in the cold and wet mud in late autumn when doing macros of mushrooms... this is really an issue for me, I surprised so many people don't see the swivel screen as a useful feature.

And I understand there could be a possible weatherproofing nightmare for the design and manufacturing departments in Canon. I just wish that could be an option...

I wonder if they could make the screen wireless, using some kind of near field communications to avoid the normal energy drain of wireless devices. They could then just attach the screen via a hinge (maybe a replaceable one in case it breaks) without actually having to compromise weather sealing.
Darn it! Now I will have to wait for the 7D3 ;)

Well, if driving an automatic is ok, and in the future owning and using a driverless car is ok, why trash the green rectangle or the P mode...

Because while I, and occasionally others, derive enjoyment from my creative expression in my photographic style, local police and state troopers would be much less appreciative of creative expression in my driving style.  8)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: ISO Setting
« on: July 30, 2013, 09:06:02 PM »
The camera is a pro body that is set to auto ISO but I am not a pro photog :)
That is when I am shooting in M mode and the light is going to vary quickly due to changing angle of the shot and I would not have time to fix the ISO...

I realize there are car afficionados out there who love their stick shift, but why not take advantage of the dual clutch auto and all the extra speed it gives you :).

Oh man..you had the analogy going VERY well, until the end there with the car attempt....<P>
:)

For a sports car, especially a high end sports car, you want a manual transmission...if not for resale value, but for performance.

You're generally gonna get the better times and stats with manual over automatic, if you know how to drive the manual...

I've never owned a car with auto transmission, and only one car have I ever owned had more than 2 seats (that one was an '86 911 Turbo, but those rear seats aren't really useable for anything but 2x bags of groceries).....

LOL...anyway, good thoughts on the camera, but ugh...a sports car with auto transmission? A waste of good steel....

:)

OMGzzzz!!1!!one!1!!!!!! I'd never even drive an automatic! I am British though, and those things are quite rare here. Why would you let the car decide what gear you need to be in?

I'm possibly the only person that will survive when the robots take over, it appears.

Driving an automatic is like shooting in the green rectangle mode. I must admit I used it (the green rectangle) in 2004 when I got my 300D first. Like Neuro said, the auto ISO works fairly well for me (though probably not as well as on the 1DX) so when I am lazy (which is more often than I'd care to admit) or when i am shooting where the light is going to vary, I set it on M, set the shutter speed and aperture and set ISO to auto and then frame and fire.
