EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7D mark II : great performer
« on: January 26, 2015, 11:21:44 AM »

I do not like any stasi attitude of censoring... This is the way to go..

By the way Dustin Abott is doing exactly the same...

It is not censoring, it is a privately owned site and we all agree to the terms when we sign up. If you want 'freedom' start your own site or post somewhere that has no rules.

And when Dustin started doing his posts just like you, I said exactly the same thing to him. http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=19471.msg367290#msg367290  He subsequently changed the way he did his posts and links, nobody has any issue with people linking to lengthy articles with many relevant and supporting images that then invite discussion within the thread they are posted, but that isn't what you are doing.

Today I read a review from Dustin:
http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=17252.msg319465#msg319465
he is exactly doing what I did. Informing about a longer article he wrote on his blogs.

By the way I am not a professional photographer. I run another business. But I use photopraghy in my professional life. I work with images as well. The blog is the forum to discuss topics which are interesting for me and to get a feedback from people have more knowledge and experience than me.

I am really sorry if I did something which is wrong or I touched you in a way which hurts you.

Yes, and in that thread that he started the review is an extensive body of work that Dustin not only invites feedback on but he also posts many of the example images in the thread and engages in genuine discussion. He is using the two separate formats for their strengths, he is not just doing it to illicit page hits.

You have not hurt me, and I hope I have not hurt you, but I do believe the way you are using this site is not how the owner wants it used, and that is probably why your first links were broken. Certainly I am not interested in going to outside links that offer no more than a simple in line post could offer, the only person that helps is you.

Thank you for your comment.

Sorry, about typing errors and my bad english, I am not natively english... and autotypocorrection will do the rest..

I do quite a bit of work in my blog.. and the blog fits to my workflow much smarter than the blog entries are - and it allows me to discuss the sea blog entry here as well as on the µ43-blogs... So if you feel it as self promotion: this is up to you, for me it si the only way to discuss some topics with more people.

You are not petitioning for a discussion, you are asking people to go to your blog. That is self promotion, you are not adding to the value of this site, you are asking people to leave it to go to yours.

Are you the Moderator? Than you know why I did that posts today: The Moderator erased one blog entry: that one with the highest level on interaction in both worlds: µ43@Canon APS-C & FF.  You have commented on that as well.

The only thing I did today was to give the people on this side the opportunity to use the links..

Which the moderator obviously also felt is inappropriate, which is why they will have changed it. So what do you do? You try to get around the censure and promote yourself anyway.

EOS Bodies / Re: 50mp Cameras Coming in March [CR1]
« on: January 26, 2015, 10:28:56 AM »

I've had my cameras for 9 and 10 years.  I've only had one lens that long.

And that helps explain some of the completely irrelevant extrapolations you come out with so often.

Congratulation. It´s a great step forward. love this lens...

The moderators of canon forum changed my original entry for this link
Is there an actual reason, other than shameless self promotion, that you are going round posting all these direct links to your blog?

You are making no further comment in the threads, you are inking to badly written misleading posts that you could just as easily leave here directly.

congratulation The 7D2 is a great camera, without any doubt... The autofocus is just mind blowing, the best I know...

Some more information you can see in my blog:

this link should work!

I added the 7DkII recently and found the increase in performance amazing. More in my Blog entry:

What do You think?
Soory for the not working link...

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Opinions on Sigma 85/1.4?
« on: January 26, 2015, 09:28:43 AM »
I have had it for over a year and highly recommend it.  I previously owned a 100m F/2 which is a great lens but I sold after getting acclimated to Sigma's 85.  Great image quality, color, contrast, etc.  Good solid hand-holdability.  Wish it had I/S but that is ok for what it does.

Why?  The focal length and wide aperture are great for portraits and stopped down the lens is very sharp for landscapes, etc.  AF speed is very good compared to the Canon 100mm.  I considered the Canon 85mm 1.2 but it is VERY large and much more $$. 

If it were me, I would wait to see if the rumored Sigma ART shows up..it is likely to be close in price to the current model with better optical performance.  I few months' wait should do it.

I have the 85mm 1.4 as well. It is a great lens, without any doubt. And it makes great images: http://selfpromotionphoto.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/4/domestication-of-a-bokeh-monster

But I had the Zeiss Otus on my Camera and it seems to be fare better...

http://selfpromotionphoto.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/9/photokina-2014---lens-tryouts

Therefore: If you have some time: it is definetely good to wait for the rumored 85mm 1.4 ART..

Lenses / Re: Canon 35mm F2 IS image quality
« on: January 26, 2015, 09:28:00 AM »
For me the 35mm f2.0 is a real great Lens. I love it since I have it... Maybe a bit to much CA wide open... but on the other hand it delivers great images...

Some ideas from the first day I had the optics in use:

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Difference in image from APS-C to FF
« on: January 26, 2015, 09:20:04 AM »
I believe this comparison is too weak: you should consider µ43 as well. I do have 2 photos from all 3 formats in comparison:

The top is the 5D3
The middle is 7D2
The lowest is the Panasonic GM1

I will extend that comparison in the future but I think you have to do extrem stuff to get the advantage of FF, but than there is no choice, f.i. @ HDR and extreme adaptions in post...

Without knowing the specific camera settings for each shot the comparisons are useless. But the DOF apparent in the bottom group would suggest you have the labels reversed with the ff crop on the bottom and the m4/3 on the top.

Meanwhile my blogpost to this topic is online, If you like: http://bit.ly/1yIg63r
Well done, lead off with the DxO overall score (which even DxO says can't be used between sensor sizes, though most would say is entirely irrelevant for any kind of comparison), then follow up with your flawed methodology comparison images that are handheld and auto focused, some in different years!

Sorry my friend, your conclusions might make sense, but your post is so rife with inaccuracies it is scary.

Canon non-EF Lenses (TS-E, FD, etc.) / Re: Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II
« on: January 25, 2015, 08:19:31 PM »
Well, I just got mine, and I have no effing idea what I am doing. It looks like at ground level, you get your longest plane of focus at about 2.5 tilted down. If anyone has any good tutorials they could post or PM to me, I'd sure appreciate it. I'm not understanding how to predict where the plane of focus it. I thought I would intuitively know, but so far, I don't.
Thanks,

Read this then PM me if you have any issues.

http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/article_pages/using_tilt.html

The plane of focus is infinite, if you are using a tilt lens or not.

agree..  just bunged the numbers through cambridge in colours diffraction limit calculator and it suggests around 1Gpix required to fully resolve a nifty fifty wide open..  (if it's diffraction limited that is)

LOL. Now go and shoot a resolution chart with that nifty fifty wide open and tell me what you are getting off center.............................

we're talking about where the limits are, not how poor some lenses are currently.  Yes current nifty fifities are dire off centre, that's why I stated it needed to be diffraction limited.

You are talking about one set of currently totally meaningless theoretical 'limits' that have been shown to not be hard limits.

Canon showed tech years ago that showed they were working on sub diffraction level imaging for consumer cameras and there are advantages to resolve below diffraction levels especially when using Bayer array covered sensors. Besides, lenses would have to far exceed diffraction limited resolution for the system, lens and sensor, to resolve them.

Do not attach any importance to 'diffraction limits' when thinking sensor resolution for consumer cameras.
