EOS Bodies / Re: B&H 1DX Order Fulfillment Tracking
« on: July 18, 2012, 08:18:58 PM »
I preordered on 18Mar (101991xxxx) and I understand that they are getting an additional large shipment either later this week or early next week which I was told I would probably be included in.   However we shall see .........

I'm extremely frustrated with B&H ..... In the last 3 years I purchased from the 17 L lenses, 4 camera bodies.... And many other stuff.... And frankly I can't get ANY info from them... Absolutely nothing.... Not only that.. I got a rep to day to finish the chat on my face.... When I was still talking to him....

Be careful. Websiteb says in stock..l when about to check out says on back order....

The thing says in stock until you are ready to pay says in small letter on on back order... Chatted with someone that confirmed it... So Canon website is really wrong.... Nothing on their warehouse to ship...

My condolences. Very sad... So sorry...

My understanding is that STM lenses offer quieter focusing for video and the new T4i is apparently compatible with STM lenses for this purpose.  Is this also true for the 5D3?  The 5D3 user's manual makes no mention of STM.  If 5D3 not compatible, can firmware update make it compatible?

Well... Compatible is because can be used. But there is no real autofocus on the 5D MKIII in video mode, not the kind you have on the t4i. And I have read it will not happen.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Quality gap 5DIII?
« on: July 15, 2012, 04:32:47 PM »
The institution I am working at, bought some 5DIII in the last weeks. There seems to be still an quality gap between the cameras itself. Our photographers took sample pictures to get used of the camera.
There is an highly visible difference in the quality of the pictures (noise, grain), they took with each of the MKIIIs.
Two of them went back to the selling company, 2 cameras will not be exchanged, although there is big noise >800 ISO.  >:(
The MKIII is no 500€ model! Our photographer are upset about this quality gap!
Why is Canon no able to produce Cameras at an constant high quality level?

But how to prevent getting an low quality MKIII an an private user?

I'm sure Canon will help, exchange the cameras if you can prove to them it is not a user error... Probably a simple photo showing the issue between the two cameras will be enough to have Canon helping you.

Can be user issue / firmware / hardware issue. All samples of one camera model should behave equally, otherwise - send them to Canon.

Absolutely wonderful!!! Does the autofocus works? They look so sharp! Are crops or you posted the full frame?

my two cents...i havent read or posted in a few months, mainly because ive been too busy and was tired of all the negatively.
i was nervous about my 5d3 purchase, like you are with your 1D purchase. mainly because i mostly shoot with an epic or an alexa, but more and more id get a treatment and it starts off with "this is a 5D job"
so i finally got one, looking back on the past few moths im so happy i did. the entire pkg has already paid for itself, financially and creatively. i shoot mainly commercials, and more recently in the past couple of years the clients have me do the products shots on stills, but as well, i have jumped on a few short film projects because i could, because i had a camera pkg. i wouldnt change my purchase for anything.
so in my opinion, which ever camera fits the work you do, the sooner you get it, the sooner it will pay off!

Good point! But let's not forget about the person behind the camera too.... It makes a difference. You have no idea how much stuff from Alexa's and Epics I have received that is a disaster. Users sometimes believe as it is a camera with a good dynamic range and RAW codec that they canmoightbthe scene with a flashlight and we can fix it in post  :( :( :(

Hi Neuro,
Let us know how you like it  :) :) :)

Limited use so far, but love it, love it, love it.  Build is great, customization is extensive, responsiveness is amazing.  Shot some ISO tests, with no NR it's definitely a full stop better than the 5DII, probably a little more than that.  Exposures are very, very consistent, AF performance is great.

Heading out to shoot a concert tonight, looking forward to it!


You mean better than the 5D III ???

A miracle happened and my order was changed from backordered to a tracking number... right after I spoke to a representative from B&H telling me they don't know when the next shipment is coming. Wednesday is play day!

what was your order number? I feel like a 5 years old kid waiting for Santa....
