EOS-M / Re: ebay EOS M adapters?
« on: July 16, 2013, 03:34:31 PM »
If anyone is interested, I just bought the adapter from Hong Kong here:

If you click "Make Offer" you can get it for even less.  I tried $75 and was instantly rejected, then $85 and was instantly rejected, $90 was instantly accepted.  The thing is, you AGREE TO BUY IT if you submit an offer and it's accepted so be ready to pony up if you try this.

Just thought I'd throw it out there...

EOS-M / Share your thoughts - M pricing
« on: July 15, 2013, 04:42:51 PM »
I picked up the M and 22mm lens and am interested in also buying the 18-55 and the converter. The prices of both have gone up recently due to demand (expected) and I'm curious to know what everyone thinks about future pricing for those items (short, medium, or long term). They aren't priority purchases for me so I'd like to buy when they're a good value.

If you need them within the next 30 days, buy from a place that will refund the difference if the price drops. Simple solution :-)

Don't lie - you stole this image from DxO.  It's their sample of what the 5D3 can do at ISO 100.  Thief!


Software & Accessories / Re: Lightroom vs. DPP
« on: July 05, 2013, 10:03:40 AM »
is it possible that it's an industry-standard because Nikon, Sony, etcetera have very poor raw converters? And so across the entire industry a better solution is needed. Especially for someone who may end up switching brands so that they don't have to learn another proprietary software every time they switch. Additionally, I find it odd that you know for sure that DPP won't work for you but that you've never ever used it.

I've been using DPP for years.  Decided to try out LR.  Didn't like it.  Even opening the RAW file showed me huge differences immediately (shot in "faithful" with sharpening at 0 from the camera).  Add to that the complexity of using LR and I quickly went back to DPP.

I think many people have bought into the hype around using LR.  IMO, yes, it's a great tool.  But for the vast majority of shots, DPP can do what LR can do (possibly better in some instances - like what you and I are both describing) and it's far simpler to use.  And, it's free.

To me, the very best features of DPP are: quick check, recipes, lens aberration correction including DLO, and simplicity!  Everyone raves about LR's library or categorization feature (or whatever it's called) but I'm happy with what DPP and the EOS utility do and I'm honestly not sure how it's different from LR but EOS utility automatically imports by date into a predetermined folder and with DPP I can batch process and save to any folder I want/create - does it get easier and more efficient than that?

Seeing that the 70d will be able to use the 18-55 and 22 lenses

 ??? What?

Yeah, I think lensgrabber is not understanding that the EF-M mount is different than the EF mount and that the 70D won't be able to use these lenses.

To me, this signals the introduction of a new EOS M camera VERY soon.

Also, for anyone interested, I've called both B&H and Adorama to see if they would put together a package deal for the camera and both lenses, neither one would do it.  However, there is one WHITE BOX version of each lens on to be had, fairly cheap.  The least expensive way to get it would be to get the 22mm lens bundled with the camera and then buy the 18-55 for $133 (total price, $432 shipped for the EOS M, 22mm, and 18-55 IS).

I've been wavering back and forth on it but decided not to pull the trigger.  Not sure why and I'll probably regret it later...  haha!

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 70D a New Benchmark in ISO Performance?

Obviously this part of the 70D rumor mill was way off.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 70D a New Benchmark in ISO Performance?
« on: July 02, 2013, 09:19:10 AM »
Where exactly was stated or who said, that 70D will set a new benchmark for High ISO? ..

Yeah, I came back to this thread wondering the same thing.  I haven't seen anything in any of the announcements, hands-on previews, etc., that addresses ISO performance being better than before.

Anyone have any info I may have missed?

PowerShot / Re: Canon France Denies Large Sensor Compacts

to those who think that canon is upset about the large sensor compact post I would suggest that they're probably upset about the 70 post.

I think a sensor that actually does provide a 10 stop advantage at equal or better image quality would absolutely have a place for SOME photographers.  Not sure why people think that their use of equipment is the only valid use and that they must immediately and decisively shoot down any other uses.  We see this same thing happen when a new camera is rumored/introduced - dozens of people disparaging it because it's not the absolutely perfect solution FOR THEM.  In this case for instance, I'd find 10 stops EXTREMELY useful for natural light macro photography (I think that in general, flash-filled macro photography looks like crap and very fake - not always, but in general).  I'd also find it useful for low light indoor photography with enough depth of field to get more than just the eyes in focus without cranking up the ISO.  In my house, 1/200 at close distance with f/8 and ISO 100 is an all black picture of my baby.

So what that this wouldn't be an ideal solution for videographers or high fps photographers?  MOST people shoot one frame at a time and don't have the desire to shoot video with a DSLR because focusing (currently) is a PITA... SURPRISE!!!!  MOST people want to capture PICTURES with their DSLR and not have to sort through 4000 pictures a day because they sprayed and prayed.  MOST people are buying entry level cameras, not 1Dx's.

It's amazing how photographers seem to have such a unique perspective on the world.  Perhaps their hippie-like creative visions have closed them off to understanding the thoughts and needs of the masses.
