Lenses / Re: Open your eyes
« on: April 17, 2013, 09:38:45 AM »
You better get used to the fact that CR is not a private hobby anymore. It is a business that wants to make profit. 15k visitors per day according to http://digsitevalue.org/s/canonrumors.com . Advertising is the way to fund such a website. As long as the site can still inform and/or entertain you, it is fine. Just don't be naive and expect somebody else's altruism funding it for you. And yes, it is still you who has to compare prices before you buy.

I hope CR is not making any income from this site, because I couldn't find a copy of their US FTC Disclosure statement anywhere...

possiblly because they are not a US site........

This site is hosted by a US company, so it is a de facto a US site and as such, are required by US law to disclose any financial consideration they receive for reviewing or recommending gear or stores.

Just sayin'...

We get these same pricing scams from the same dealer every time there's a Canon rebate.  Most of us know better, but the OP is obviously new to this...

Technical Support / Re: Which RAW processing software do you use?

Are there any others that I missed?

You missed several others, but the only one worth mentioning (IMHO) is Capture One.

Some great images there - thanks for sharing!

51
I guess we can expect to see usual rebate-offsetting price increases at B&H later today...  ::)

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: "I am boycotting Nikon" campaign

Don't worry about those animals - if the 'scopes are made by Nikon, they will all be out of calibration and aim to the left.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Nikon D800 Value Dropping?
« on: April 12, 2013, 06:10:54 PM »
I wouldn't touch a used one with a 10-foot pole... the reason the prices are so low is that everyone else has figured that out, too.

Most of them are being sold because of the persistent AF-alignment problems.

Go out and take pictures - it's the only test that actually matters.  :)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Finally a DXOMark win for Canon
« on: April 04, 2013, 03:22:15 PM »
At a per megapixel level the Canon 5D Mark III sensor is sharper than the D800 and with the lens line up Canon sensor manages to get the best out of the lenses compared to the Nikon!

 Finally some good news :D

No surprise to anyone who's actually used both systems...  ;)

EOS Bodies / Re: Question re: real world experience with 5D MkIII AF
« on: April 03, 2013, 10:40:16 AM »
I have both and find that will grab the 5D M3 most of the time.   

Same here... except I've now sold my 1D Mark IV.

Canon General / Re: 24-70Mk2 fell off my 5DMk3 and smashed

@dylan777   Why would I make this up?


You're embarrassed that you dropped your lens... that's understandable, it's happened to a lot of us.  The part that's hard to understand is why you're trying to blame someone else for your mistake?

EOS Bodies / Re: What is missing from the 7DII specs

You left out "facts" as an option - that's the one I would have picked.

"Viewfinder LCD Higher Resolution Than 7D"

That and the 19-point AF give this away as being purely fictional...

If it's as sharp as the 70-300L, awesome. 


I hope they don't downgrade the performance that much - it would be a deal-breaker for me.
