EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: The 5D Mark III & SD Memory Cards
« on: June 25, 2012, 09:31:52 AM »
Yea, the SD slot in the mk3 is dissapointing…sometimes i think it's even slower than my 60D!
However, at least there's a workaround…
I rarely use burst mode and i usually shoot mRaw in my CF card and mJpg in my SD card only and in the event i really need ALOT of burst photos, i just remove the SD card and use only the CF…but that's rare…
For MJpg, the burst mode works well enough for me even with the SD…i almost never shoot full size anyways so…it's ok for me.

EOS Bodies / Re: FIRST Video comparison Canon 5D mkIII VS 1D X

The 1DX must be in stock here in Singapore..
i was at a photoshoot today and for the first time, there were more 1DX cameras than 5D3!
In fact i was the only 5D3 user in the shoot, there were 3 other 1DX, and 1 guy even had 2….
I was shocked…i thought the 1DX was so rare but to see so many in 1 day? Maybe there IS alot of stocks in Singapore..

Because it has 18MP rather than a 3x3 1920x1080 22MP sensor and Canon said the 5D3 would rule video for this round. The D4 video is way worse than the D800 video. The 1D4 video was worse than 5D2 video.

Hehe, when Canon said the 5D3 would rule video, the 1DX wasn't out yet right? :)
So Canon's marketing now will make sure the 1DX will rule EVERYTHING and make you want to buy it if you want the best of the best in everything hehe…
Given the processing power and the more time they had to tweak the 1DX with all the delays and after seeing the competition in the market for so long, i think Canon has time to make the 1DX better than everyone else in what it was made to do…so i wouldn't be surprised at all if the 1DX is indeed better at video than the 5D3. It is after all the flagship model...

Yes, the 1DX is better than the 5D3…but..why are we surprised?
It's got everything in it better…
But we mustn't forget, it's also double the price! Surely it had to be better than the 5d3..

It's not FTM because it uses electricity to focus.. even by turning it to MF and having your camera turned OFF you won't be able to manual focus it either..the camera has to be turned ON.
So when it is in AF mode, turning the focus rings doesn't do anything..having the shutter half pressed i guess "activates" the electricity needed to focus so you can actually turn the focus ring and still be able to manual focus that way…kinda like a "hybrid" manual focus

The 1DX has officially arrived in Singapore stores already.
My friend just collected his at 1600hrs today from a local dealer…
I hope to be able to play with it when i meet up with him..
Once again, Singapore is the first country to receive the new models? Similar to the 5D3?
I wonder why...

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon EOS 5D Mark III Firmware 1.1.3
« on: June 19, 2012, 05:32:08 AM »
I didn't see any difference in this latest firmware.

However i saw on the camera there's a Camera Firmware and a Lens firmware.
The lens firmware is still 1.1.0 and i can't update that to 1.1.3..only the camera firmware goes to 1.1.3….
What's this lens firmware? I never knew there was such a thing.

Lenses / Re: Where is the Lens EF40mm F2.8 STM made in?
« on: June 19, 2012, 04:51:13 AM »
I don't see why you would want to screw on a hood for the pancake..then it would make it not a pancake :)
I have the hood from my old 50 f1.8 and yes it works on the 40mm as well…no issues using it whatsoever..not even with a filter+hood combo..
But then, after i did that, it made the lans as big as any other normal lens..which defeated the purpose of wanting it because it was thin...

The whole point of the 40mm is to be cheap.
What good is it if it were to be made in japan and cost 2x the price as with made in malaysia?
I'm happy it's made in Malaysia so i only pay this much for it and being in Singapore, Malaysia is just next to us so we get the lens much faster too hehe..

Lenses / Re: 40mm/2.8 looks better than both 50/1.8 and 50/1.4
« on: June 17, 2012, 10:04:13 PM »
I've not personally tried the 40 f2.8 at f8 yet..
SO far i've testing it at f2.8 and max f4 because i mostly use it for indoor shots so far.
And I do have the 50 f1.4 and 85 f1.8
And is use those VERY often.
What i've noticed with the photos i've taken is the the 40f2.8 is a tad bit sharper than the 50 and 85mm lenses BUT the colour reproduction and bokeh isn't as nice….
I would share some photos but i haven't really tested the 40mm fully yet..intend to do so this weekend during a portrait shoot though and compare it with the 50 and 85 at the same aperture in the same setting

I'm getting mine today and yes i too am using it primarily as a body cap....at least it's a functioning body cap when i need it fast and not have to struggle with changing lenses.
