United States / Re: Photography is Terrorism?
« on: October 11, 2011, 09:59:26 AM »
I neither want to get too much into politics here nor do i want to judge these incidents. However, here's a link to a post earlier this year about a group of people taking pictures on a plane - in the US.,907.msg11985.html#msg11985

It seem's that both occurences were misunderstandings and are less related to a political wing beeing in power than to more people beeing suspicious when seeing a person acting in a way wich they think is wrong (e.g. terrorists or pedophiles)

Lenses / Re: 300mm f2.8 II vs 200-400mm f4.0 TC1.4 your opinion
« on: September 30, 2011, 02:26:07 PM »
I hope you don't want an IQ opinion :)
Before I want to tell you whats on my mind, you need to remember that the 200-400 is not yet anounced. It's only anounced to be in developement and nobody knows when it will be available. So if you need the lens now, get it now.

My opinion is:
The 200-400 is way more flexible and it`s easier and faster to frame a moving subject with it. The 300mm advantage is the f 2.8 aparture which will make it easier to stop action. The 200-400 will allow you to frame wider than the 300mm but lacks 40mm at the long end. However the missing mm at the long end will not matter as much as the 100mm on the wide side.

United States / Re: Upgrading lenses
« on: September 20, 2011, 11:17:58 AM »
I shot an evening soccer game last spring and used my 100L macro lens because my 70-200 4.0 L just didn't "collect" enough light.

I attached one of the shots. The settings are Iso 800 f2.8 1/160sec.
I highly recommend a longer lens and if you only a one body (may I ask which body you have?) I'd go for a zoom on a crop body the 70-200 f2.8 should be enough. If you have two bodys and enough money laying around :D you could also go for the 135 2.0 and the 200 2.8. However that would bring you close to the Sigma 120-300 (it's 2000€ at Amazon here in Germany). Your (budget's) choice.

EOS Bodies / Re: More New Full Frame Rumors [CR1]
« on: September 19, 2011, 04:26:13 PM »
well, clearly this is evolutionary. let me wager and outrageously accurate and educated prediction.

a fanciful 5dmkIII with the following:
55MP full frame image with 28 stops of dynamic range and a noiseless ISO range from 25 to 102,400. b/w noise compression kicks in at 409,600 ISO (max). indescribable AF with 90 point recognition at all offered exposure options, of equal power and effectiveness during video. 10,000,000 exposure durability on shutter with 60 - 1/32000 second timing variables. specialty flash sync at 1/2000 of a second. 24fps burst mode at RAW. manual video control over full dynamic range and iso. incremental frame rates from 1 to 240 frames a second at 18bit 4k resolution, uncompressed 4:4:4 prores codec with built in HDR mode. rolling shutter. in-camera aperture, zoom and focus control (wireless with controller). dual CF card reader/writer supporting up to two 512GB 120mb/s cards. 3G-SDI output. thunderbolt output. complete removal of aliasing and moire issues. quarter-inch input for audio, with manual audio control and phenomenal compressor/limiter/white-noise reducer options engineered by Waves.

bunch of other neat stuff.

oh, and it comes as an option with a brand new 16-135mm f/1.2 L series lens with an entirely new motion-predictive system of IS.

they have also rumored the street name for this camera to be appropriately titled "the game changer" ...Nike is also on board for co-op marketing.

wrong thread?

While I agree with all of you who say it a 2009 tech killer, it still means it's the best beeing. Keep in mind that the D800 is only rumored as well as any canon cam comming.

Any "Entry level Full Frame" would be a great step forward - economicly (for canon) and maybe even revolutionary. Wasn't the classic 5D the first FF cam below the 1D(s)/Nikon D(X) series and revolutioned the camera lines of both companies. Producing an even cheaper camera could be the next step towards a FF for the mass camera.
I'm neither looking for a new Camera at the moment nor within the next 1 or 2 years but very excited about this rumor. A cheap Full Frame cam is what I would like to upgrade to...



Lenses / Re: Any news on a EF 50mm - F/1.2 ll ?
« on: September 19, 2011, 01:10:25 PM »
I feel as if this lens rumor has been discussed before, then quickly discarded... Is the idea of the EF 50mm F/1.2 being updated by Canon still a possibility?

There haven't been any rumors about it here but a few months ago there was a CR2 on 1.4 II and 1.8 III rumors,989.0.html


ups... just checked the "List of rumored lenses"-thread,15.0.html there is a CR1 rumor for a 50 1.2 II

but as always keep in mind that it's only a rumor if you need the lens/camera/what ever buy it now don't hesitate

nice shot!
what gear did you use and what were the settings?

EOS Bodies / Re: A New Entry Level Full Frame Camera? [CR1]
« on: September 18, 2011, 05:18:00 AM »
If its FF entry evel, then i want a pop up flash if there is room above the prism/EVF?

The D700 is FF and has a pop-up flash, so it's not impossible.
But no Electronic View Finder, please!!!

EOS Bodies / Re: Your wishlist for your next body...
« on: September 13, 2011, 02:15:14 PM »
Not sure if there is something like a wishlist thread here... haven't found one

There's kind of a 5D III wishlist thread:,818.0.html#msg10532

However I don't like to post long wishlists as it is highly unlikely that anybody official will ever take care of them. But to be honest: If enough people post a feature all over the internet it could be different. Proof me worng

I like the idea of saving RAWs on a CF and JPEGs on SD

Lenses / Re: TS-E 17 mm f.4,0L or ef 14mm 2,8 L mk II
« on: September 10, 2011, 01:28:17 PM »
which one of these two are the best lens for landscape photography

if you don't need autofocus then it comes down to how wide you want to go. i don't have hands on experience with any of the two lenses but they both seem to be pretty impressive. check out some reviews e.g.
i think the ts-e is superior in IQ, you have the possibility to tilt for more DoF and you can stitch some pictures together for a panorama wich takes you close to the 14mm
i recommend the ts-e

Canon General / Re: aw100

If you're looking for a Powershot D10 replacement, there haven't been any news about it within the last weeks here at CR. But you're right! It's been out for a long time already.

The last rumor about it was in January:,515.msg6370.html#msg6370

and another note about it last year:,182.msg2472.html#msg2472

Sounds a little bit like the 24-70 rumors. Some say it it in the pipes some say it isn't.
And keep one thing in mind: as long as canon is selling enough of the D10s they see no need to replace it. However that could change with Nikon's AW100...

Why only "L"?

My non L seems to take some pretty daggone sweet pics!

There is another thread for the non L-version:,299.msg14542.html#msg14542

oh and there already is one for the L-version, too:,1195.0.html

I also recomend the 60mm prime. It's faster than what you already have, the image quality is worth the money and [in my opinion] any prime is fun to use.

this should complete my set of lens...

A lens collection is never complete.

Agree so far but...

There is always just one more that you need.

There's always just one more that you want.
