you guys make me laugh.
Thankfully the feeling is reciprocated. I don't get bugged by your childish trolls.

You should know that limiting yourself to some arbitrary figures on ACR or LR's PV 2012 highlight and shadow sliders is a wrong strategy. Those sliders are scaled to the image contrast, and thus change in range with each image. In other words, their range is image-adaptive. +50 might be a 1 stop push on one image and a 3 stop push on another image.
Well it only had 25 as the basic standard on luminance in LR, my import default, that is kinda what the tree looks like at 100%. But here it is with completely zeroed out noise reduction but with the same sharpening, if you can't get rid of this little noise you are in no position to be telling people stuff.
Telling people what?
that the right image looks like the NR is high giving the painterly effect?
I like to do this purposefully on portraits, it's a nice look for smoothing skin doesn't look good at 100% though
Two people have presented files with just as much shadow push as he had and the results are fine. You are very clearly wrong.
Are you referring to the tree trunk I see above, which as so much NR it looks painted.
Save the hassle of magic lantern, the Sony sensor produce files which can have their shadows pushed more cleanly than Canon.
I have both 5dM3 and RX1r - I see this all the time.
private/dtaylor, appreciate the feedback to my question, Thank You.
Also the info regards ML, unfortunately it isn't as yet workable on the 1Dx, to my knowledge, I like this for no other reason than the auto ETTR, can't quite come to grips why Canon don't implement something along these lines as standard on all their gear, as well as the other Camera Manufacturers.
For those that believe they can reproduce similar latitude to the Image discussed in this thread from single exposures from a Canon Sensor, I would be hugely interested to see some evidence, and I mean this in a positive sense, I would like to know just what I'm continuing to do wrong with my Canon gear that in a single exposure generally doesn't produce as much latitude as a single exposure on either the D800 (owned one of these as well) or the a7r.
For sure. Don't even need to improve that much from 1DX and I'll drop $10k easily. 2 stops on ISO performance, 2 stops on DR, 2 stops on MP. Sold.
You think adding 2 stops here and there is worth a $3500 bump in price?
Even the first two, totally. And for MP, 1 stop would be good enough, 2 stop add on MP would be already to much in my mind.
+1 to jrista's comment about running multiple systems...
I was a Nikon guy when I started shooting SLRs in film, my first body was an FM2n. Developed a lens and body collection and then discovered the wonder of Canon white glass and AF with an EOS 3... In the world of digital, Canon had a pretty healthy advantage across the board for a while but the 14-24 Nikon tempted me into a D700 and I still use that wide angle combo a lot, although the absence of easy filters is a bit disappointing sometimes.
There's definitely an argument to be made for one system for familiarity reasons, but I figure I control enough other technology in my life without being confused, I should be able to handle two camera menu / button systems! LOL And on the Nikon, I'm only shooting WA so sub-second config changes aren't in the cards very often.
Could you please share link(s) to market data regarding EF vs EF-S lens sales? I haven't found anything useful yet and I'm keen to learn more.
Looks like a fairly decent monitor.
Big thing for me is it is wide Gamut, meaning you get 1.07 Billion colors. You will likely need to upgrade your video card to do this, but in short, you will most closely be able to see the actual colors you are shooting.
Many people like the 5K monitors, but most all of these are 24.7 Million colors.
BLECH! To each their own, I would prefer to have 50x the colors in a sharp crisp display than 2% the colors in a super large display.
