Technical Support / Re: CF SD Read Speed VS Photo Import Speed Problem!
« on: September 03, 2012, 11:08:14 PM »
Read and write speeds have a lot of factors why they can be slow. The file structure and file size. Lots of large files such as hd video can take longer since it needs the whole file to move to the next one. It could be the brand of card and media and finally just windows reporting. What is are you running?

I can only say that when I had my 60d I tried the 270 ex ii,320 ex then the 430 ex before I was happy with the results. If you want off camera flash then get the 600 and wait for canon to refresh the rest of the line for slaves or get experience with. The 430 first and sell it when those come available.

I am no pro and considered the 1dx for the slight cleaner high iso images and the better metering system but it just felt so large compared to the 5d3 and could see justifying it unless you needed the fps or the customizable buttons. I think a higher megapixel camera sounds more enticing.

I love the image compare feature during playback when you are deciding between settings such as exposure focus etc.

Lenses / Re: Considering the 70-200 f4 is for my next lens

Thanks everyone again. I do agree that this will cover my immediate needs for reach beyond 105 mm. It will give me a budget toward a L prime. Or the 24-70 ii if it ends up great. I also like the weight. The Iq is sharp wide open on my copy. I also want the speed lite 600ex to add for low light and I think that will be a better combo than the 2.8 version. I do have the 50mm 1.4. I think I will go for 35mm for my next prime. What is there for beyond 200mm? That's semi affordable?

I have been shooting all weekend with this lens and wish indoors I had the 2.8 but you still have to introduce flash or push you ISo to achieve reasonable shutter speeds. I am wondering if the extra stop is worth $1,000 more and double the weight for indoor shots or should I save that for the upcoming 24-70 ii release which is a much more used focal range for me? I do hate only f4 but 2.8 is not that much faster when under tungsten lighting. Yeah the bokeh seems nicer but I just have a hard time with the weight of that lens. How do you over come it?

Thanks for the replies.

I purchased the 70-200 f4 is. $1100 seemed like a good price. It's new and I know I can sell it later if need be for minimal loss. I think it complements my 24-105. Now that I have the telephoto covered. I am going for the 24-70 II year end or early next. Either way thanks for all the advice. I looked and held the 70-200 2.8 and it just is too heavy for the extra stop. Also the cost is soo much. I think this will let me see if I feel limited by the aperature and if so then I will sell it and go for the 70-200. At least then I will know I need it. I looked at the 200 2.8mm and 135l but for me I need zoom since my family makes me have to react fast and it's too hard to change lenses of focus on moving around. I think this will be a good start. If Canon releases the infamous 14-24 or 35l II then maybe that will be my next lens. I also will probably end up with the eos m and use my lenses on that for when I need to travel light. That makes the lens I purchased that much more useful vs the 2.8 counterpart. Anyway thanks everyone.

Thanks. I just wish I rented it at home. I got it for a trip and only used it for a handful of shots but they were great shots. I just don't want to feel compelled because of the deal but then again if it's going to likely rise a few hundred then I would just buy it now.

Lenses / Considering the 70-200 f4 is for my next lens

Hey I have a dilemma. I have a 5d3 with the following
50 1.4
Various speedlites

I take Candids of the kids but I find myself wanting more reach. I rented the 70-200 f4 is and it was pretty nice. I currently can get it for $1100 from a reputable dealer but unsure if that's a good price or if I should hold out to see what else is offered by canon for the fourth quarter. I also want the 24-70 ii but would have to pay of the 70-200 first if I get it. So add focal range or a stop of light with the 24-70 ii or just wait. Any suggestions?

I did. Just got a Sony Nex F3 but will sell it when the Canon come's out. It will be a great camera for the wife and keep her used to Canon menu's when she uses my 5d3. Also I like that I can mount my L Lenses. I always thought that sensor is decent under 1600 iso but with the digic 5 may be good at 3200. Either way I cannot stand the Sony optics and menu system. The way the NR is too much just softens out all the fine details and when the wife uses it constantly wants to shoot at iso 3200. At least the Canon comes with the f2 prime and I can mount the tamrom 17-50 2.8 if I need to for a light weight travel rig. I also like that I can add a 70-200 to my kit and if my 5d3 is not reaching it then the crop of the eos-m should give me a little more. Finally I figure I will get the pro version whenever that comes out also. That was my reason. Hope it helps. Plus you can use your speedlites on it.

I did but I was already sending it in for focusing issues in which they replaced the CPU board on my 50 mm instead either way it's done and over with.

I have a canon 5d mkiii and I am testing my new 270ex ii for vacation and in tv mode shutter 1/125 iso 400 wb flash eval metering it tries to use 1/3 sec or best I can get is 1/20 at iso 1600. I thought it was my batteries but I recharged them. I put my 430ex ii on and same results. Any suggestions? I should be able to shoot at iso 400 with a speedlite? I even reset all my settings. Very frustrated 2 days from a trip.
