one little minor thing you overlook.... you are currently posting in the EOS BODIES TECH RUMORS FORUM. Why the heck do you expect or want talk about photographic art in this sub-forum?

I mean on these forums in general. It would just simply be nice to get past the whole Nikon/DR thing at some point. I'm not saying we stop talking tech...but there is more to owning a Canon camera than debating DR.

Nobody is stopping you ignoring the threads you are not interested in debating.

People such as yourself could also stop beating the horse that was dead so long ago and is now only a pile of rotting horse mush. :P

Meaning? Which dead horse do I beat?

Farcical really when you are the verbose one flagellating the deceased equine.

Sorry, thought that last response was from LTRL. My point is moot, given you are a different person. :P

As for the deceased equine, I only respond to those who bring the topic up again, in order to correct invalid facts, I don't start the debates myself.
Fair enough  :)

I am not above beating a horse, dead or alive, indeed I have to go feed mine in a minute, the ungrateful bloody thing, but I like her really..............

What would you consider a "fighting back" feature? ... what are you shooting that negates every other improvement in the MkIII over the MkII.

I want more pixels. I take lots of street shots and often have to crop a lot. At least 30 would be very useful. 36 would be great. If I could get 100 I would take it.

I also want better low light focussing performance. In low light shooting relatively fast moving subjects I have to take 3 shoots to be sure to get one right - both with the 5DII and the 5DIII (this was the deal breaker for me).

Finally, much better high iso. 5DIII is of course a little better than 5DII but not the jump in performance I would like to see.

That's pretty much it - quite a modest list when it comes to number of items. Time will tell if Canon will deliver.

"I want more pixels" Either get a camera with more pixels or stitch.
"I take lots of street shots and often have to crop a lot." Er, learn to use the right focal length.
"I also want better low light focussing performance." Well no manufacturer is that much better or worse than any other on that, which hardly means Canon need to "fight back".
"Finally, much better high iso." Again, Canon are very competitive in this area, they either lead the competition or are very close, so again, they hardly need to "fight back".

Those are not features where Canon is trailing, unless you compare them solely to the number of pixels on the 36mp Sony sensor in all its iterations. All you are really saying is you'd like Canon to "fight back" with more pixels because you can't choose the right focal length and everything else they do is comparable to competing product capabilities, hardly a compelling reason for Canon to invest hundreds of millions of dollars on a new sensor fabrication line. I'd hoped your input would be far more worthwhile than you can't choose the right focal length and need mp to sort out your short comings.

If you want a 100mp sensor for cropping purposes just use a P&S, it is effectively the same thing and will give you the same IQ.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 70d center focus point -bug- problem
« on: June 08, 2014, 12:26:22 PM »

I'm not good at English, i'm from Türkiye. Sorry if i said something wrong.

You spelled "Turkey" incorrectly.

It is shocking when someone cannot spell the name of their own country properly!! ;)

You call "Turkey" we call "Türkiye" which is more true? :)

I am amazed that Americans think that they can rename cities and countries for other people. He has the spelling correct in Turkish. Americans call Firenze "Florence" and Padova "Padua." Of course, the people in Italy don't know the names of their own cities, Firenze and Padova.

Thank you for understanding.

MYB, I think you will find Tugela was just making a light hearted joke, they didn't mean it as an insult, you can tell by the emoticon after the comment.


Arty, why would you assume Tugela is from the USA? Also, didn't you notice the wink emoticon, he/she was clearly making a joke. Admittedly that often translates even worse than writing as so few people seem to have a sense of humour [sic]. Oh, and the Americans are not the only people to rename foreign, to them, places in a way more suitable for pronunciation in their own language.

EOS Bodies / Re: New Full Frame Camera in Testing? [CR1]
« on: June 08, 2014, 10:35:38 AM »
I wasn't talking about saturation levels, all gamuts including out eyes have their ceilings with regards saturation, I was talking actual accurate colour. Even if you can't contain a saturation level within a specific mediums gamut, either screen or print, you can get the colour right. The reproduction then becomes a choice of rendering intent, and for images with considerable out of gamut colours Perceptual Intent gives the most accurate rendition, the saturation level might not be accurate but the colours and their relationship to each other are.

To understand the limitations and capabilities of reproduction you have to understand the difference between colour and saturation. The same colour can have an infinite number of saturation levels.

Here is a problem image I printed for another photographers show recently, the first image is the actual image, the second has a gamut warning on, all the blue. That doesn't mean I can't print the correct colours, it just means I can't print the correct colours at the correct saturation levels. How I choose to move those unprintable saturation levels into the gamut I have is the skill of the thing, but getting the colours right is the basics for a printer.

Exactly why does Canon need to "fight back" on full frame cameras? The 5DIII and the 6D are both absolutely crushing their Nikon equivalents in sales.


Do you buy your camera equipment according to their sales figures?

My purchases are directed by my needs as a photographer. I did not buy the 5DIII after extensive testing - because it just did not bring anything useful to me. So for my money Canon will have to "fight back" or my next DSLR will not be a Canon unless I have a 5DII break down. Simple as that.

YMMV.

What would you consider a "fighting back" feature? As far as I can see the only thing the 5D MkIII doesn't do significantly better than the 5D MkII is low iso shadows, even then it is better, just not significantly better. And seeing as how the "best" competitors are only performing a stop or so better in this one metric I'd like to know what you, personally, would like from Canon. Also, what are you shooting that negates every other improvement in the MkIII over the MkII.

"How would you stretch it in LR?"

You would have to use the Export dialog box, the bit about Image Size, you can change to resample, you can then set it to reimport the new file.

sagittariansrock, nice building, the sort of thing the 17 was made for.

One thing I do with big shifts is resize on the shifted axis but not on the other axis, many might say it is sacrilege and you lose IQ, but the truth is the building gets compressed in the shifted axis, I normally resample 10% - 25% or so more to give the building back its height and haven't had any real issue with IQ.

Here is another test I did with mine when I got it, the first shot is full shift and as shot, the second has been resampled on the shifted axis only, in this case an extreme 30%, that is what it took to get the building back to the actual proportions of the real life structure. But I was very close and used max shift, normally not so much resampling is needed and you need to strike a better balance between IQ and actual proportions.

Ok thank you for the very detailed reply.  You answered all my questions. I will pass on it and spend my money a better way.  Thanks again!

You are welcome, progress is crazy, I remember that when looking to get a Honda CBX, the writing for big sports bikes was already on the wall, same with the Canon 1VHS, I still own two, one with less than 100 rolls of film through it. All of them have superb engineering, just terrible timing.

Lenses / Re: Interesting piece of glass - f/0.85
« on: June 04, 2014, 08:55:37 PM »
Oh, I didn't say they lied. Technically they are correct. They just made it sound a lot bigger and more meaningful than it is.
I originally thought it was for FF before I clicked on the link.

I know you didn't, but after this thread the other day, http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=21071.msg400779#msg400779 it struck me that many people just don't get the interaction of aperture and cropping.

Isn't it a bit rich calling an APS-C f/0.85 the fastest lens? The 35mm equivalent will be f/1.36, and we already have f/0.95 lenses here.

Not really, the f/aperture value is a simple maths equation, focal length divided by the diameter of the apparent aperture when wide open. That means this lens is a true f0.85, though as you point out it will only give you as narrow dof as a 65mm f1.4 on a ff camera when shot from the same place, the 85 f 1.2 comfortably out narrow dof 's it.

The smaller the sensor the more difficult it is to achieve narrow dof but that doesn't change the equation to determine aperture.

Great camera but it has had its day.

It uses regular 35mm, 135 format, film, developing is not difficult but can't be done through some machines, they don't understand the wider frame.

The trouble with them is to get any kind of quality from it you need to get good scans and again, most automatic machines can't handle the frame size, so it is speciaised and expensive. Or you do the scanning yourself which is time consuming and frustrating, well I found it was and gave up very quickly.

Though it takes a gorgeous picture, especially on slide film, in my opinion it isn't worth the trouble.
