If that is real and they haven't put the RT protocol in there it is DOA.

Never one to be afraid to put my nose in where it isn't needed, without any ill will to Dustin who does some great work and reviews, as a matter of principle I am very much against pure outside links, indeed I am surprised CR allows such posts. There is nothing difficult about including an entire blog post and image here and including a link to the original for people who have more interest to go and see, and I think, on principle, that is the more honorable way of doing things. Pure links just smell of site traffic manipulation to me, I am sure Dustin has a good following and has been asked by people to post more stuff (heck people even PM me questions), but he can answer those personal requests with directions to his blog and site, that, to my mind, is very different from making people click to even see if they are interested in a post.+1
Just my 10c worth.
If it is a long article, a short synopsys along with the picture would be OK and a link at the end. But I'm not sure I think it is OK to use a forum like this to promote your own site, which I beleive has commercial motivation.
As for this specific post, I am a bit surprised why you selected an image like this. You have posted lots of images it could have been interesting to hear the story behind. But, without getting into any debate over the image, this was not one that raised any interest with me.
But keep posting, I may enjoy the next one more.
Fair enough. I absolutely am trying to drive attention to my website to continue building my brand. I have no problem acknowledging that.
But what you may not know is that traffic back to LensRentals is typically in my top 4 clickthroughs from my website (#3 today, in fact). I recommend that people rent lenses (try before you buy)and freely cite articles by Roger to direct people to Lens Rentals. Anyone that works with web design/development knows how importance this ecosystem is. Every clickthrough from this website (CanonRumors) to any other website helps build its brand and page ranking. It is a bit of a symbiotic relationship, which is probably why it is allowed here.
Even from the kind reactions on this thread I sense that this particular post and image are not the sexiest I've ever shared. I'll try to up my game next time
That's quite a ... pro toolIt seems logical that a new model would be named G2 X and not G1 X II...
Not if Canon follow the nomenclature they have followed for many years if they really do consider the G1X a pro tool, which they have always said they do.
The Pinnacle of PowerShot.
Bright, fast and more creative than ever: advanced technologies come together for an exciting new camera that moves beyond anything the G-Series has seen before. The PowerShot G1 X digital camera will inspire advanced amateurs who have embraced the G-Series to explore new realms of photographic expression, and give pros an excellent camera that complements their creative demands.
Hello dear friends.
What do you think - Canon need this market ?
Will we see any MF cameras and lenses of course any soon ?

Anyway, it was five stops under exposed and..just displays your complete lack of post processing ability.
5... That's pretty good, and you certainly know how to make good use of Photoshop to clean it up.
I'd have no hesitation about pushing files from your 1ds3, a camera with a rep as one of the better low ISO performers made, or even my faithful old 40d. (anyone ever hear me complain about my 40D?)
But there are only 2 bodies I've experienced that are horridly noisy; the 7D, and the 5D2 that I had.
I'd like to see what you can do to try a stripey 7D file under the same conditions, and see how much work you'd have to put in, and what kind of results could be obtained.
Even doing this as a proof does not exempt the fact that some bodies have a lot of FPN and are not suitable for any push-processing in post, certainly not if you have to do a lot of that. Unfortunately for me, I had both of those bandy bodies and stupidly kept them when I should have just returned them. They did have some other redeeming features, and still provided plenty of usable shots, but frustrated the &%^$*$@#! out of me when I had to push low ISO files.
And yes, I'm no Photoshop guru, but neither should I have to be. Far quicker and better for future-proofing to just choose better tools that don't require me to fix such things in post.
I wonder why they bothered with the 5ds. Why not just have one model to track? Does the 5d do something the 1D doesn't?
