If they add this feature, it better be optional.


I agree...

The current setup is a huge improvement over the old cameras - I hated the AF sensor marks that obscured the subject.

Would be interesting to note if his contract with Canon will allow him to accept payments from Nikon...

There is a difference between accepting payment for services and accepting compensation for damages...

Lenses / Re: Best time to buy Canon lenses?
« on: March 04, 2012, 08:42:47 AM »
I know Canon has a bunch of lens deals going on right now, but to get the best bang you gotta buy a Mark II with them.  I'm getting the Mark III : /

Is there a time of year when the deals are the best and Canon lenses are at their least expensive?


Correction - had a bunch of lens deals.  The rebates ended yesterday.

Here's a historical listing of Canon rebates.


The current Canon Canada rebates run until March 31.

I don't read Norwegian, but apparently Nikon has offered payment plus an official apology as compensation for stealing his work...

At 400% magnification, everything in the image is an interpolation artifact...  ::)

You need to look at the image at 100% in order to see what is actually coming out of the camera.

I'm sure it was done by some local PR firm and not Nikon Corporate... but talk abut embarrassing just the same.

Looks like even Nikon prefers the Canon EOS 5D Mark II for video...  ;)

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 5D Mark III - Body Price At Announcement
« on: February 28, 2012, 12:53:24 PM »
I see absolutely no point to upgrade to a 5D3.  Especially for a $1,000+ price increase.  61-point AF system?  Who cares?  Who shoots with multiple points anyway?  Center-point focus and recompose.  That's how any serious photographer shoots anyway.  Do people want their cameras to compose their shots for them too? 

Leave it up to your camera to pick your focus points and you will end up lots of throw away shots. 


Al the pros are nodding in agreement with this comment, and all the noobies are in denail...  LOL

For some reason they didn't require a deposit


No reputable store would...   ::)

I'm surprised that B&H doesn't offer this as one of their "kits"... ::)

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Fuji X-Pro 1

The G1X is just another drop of water in an ocean of point-and-shoot cameras, while the Fuji X-Pro 1 is clearly aimed at serious enthusiasts.

102


Are you kidding? Have you ever picked up a 17-55mm f2.8? It weighs a pound and a half. The G1x would weight a huge amount with a 4x fixed aperture lense with a sensor that big.

It's not an SLR, so it doesn't need the big, bulky retrofocus-design SLR lenses.

Canon General / Re: Carl Zeiss 21mm F2.8 Canon Mount

I had one, loved the image quality, but didn't enjoy the manual focusing experience on my 5D Mark II, so I ended up selling the lens.

About a month later, I found a 1Ds III for a good price, and picked up another Zeiss 21mm f2.8.  The better viewfinder of the 1Ds III is just enough of an improvement over the 5D II to make using MF lenses easier.  I highly recommend both!  ;)

Nikon has to do something to stay ahead of the iPhone in the megapixel race...

Canon General / Re: Canada Post is literally giving me an Ulcer - Ed Mika
« on: September 22, 2011, 02:00:41 PM »
Ed, this is just a thought, but if you're shipping a lot of these items outside of Canada, you may want to look into using a courier service that will take your parcels across the border and mail them using the US Postal service.

I don't know how common these companies are, but my sister in Vancouver who sells a lot of books finds the cost to ship with Canada Post to be prohibitive (and slow), so she uses a local service that takes all of her packages down to Washington state once a week.  She seems to get much faster delivery in addition to the significant cost savings.
