Lighting / Re: 600EX RT vs AlienBees

If you get Einsteins, You could pull off lighting effects that Broncolor and Profoto will turn up their noses at.

Thanks for sharing ;)

@ISO800, x20 looks good to me. Look forward to see x100s performs at ISO3200 & 6400 in low light. :o

What about the fixed 35 mm equiv focal length? I'm not sure about it. What do you think?

Prior my purchase of RX1, I thought 50mm would be a great fixed lens.

After taking over 1k photos with RX1, I will take 35mm fixed over 50mm fixed compact camera anydays ;)

Here are some pics from RX1. 35mm. Shooting distance was around 3'- 4' from camera to subject(s).

These look fantastic! Nice shots.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Nikon 7100 has been anounced
« on: February 21, 2013, 06:38:07 AM »
YES Nikon, bring 'em on!  8)

oh boy, I just love this!

D7100 makes the 70D look a total looser already. Destroyed on the ground. I confidently expect the D7100 sensor to have 1.5 EV better dynamic range and way better per-pixel sharpness than whatever sorry ppiece of sensor cr*p Canon will be willing to put into the 70D ... bye bye AA-Filter!

And iI also expect the price to be lower than the 70D ... like D7000 vs. 60D and D800 vs. 5D III ... hehehehe!

Really hope, Nikon will soon follow this up with a D400  that destroys an "incrmentally updated" 7D Mk II - as per the CR specs (!). Double whammy!

Canon needs to be pressed flat against the wall ...  maybe that'll wake them up and they get back to bring truly  innovative and meaningful new products.

I for one would like a 5D IV please, with 1D-X AF-system, sensor with better DR than D800, innovative Eye Control Focus v 2.0, built-in Canon-RT radio commander, X-sanc 1/500s. Price? Like Nikon D800.

Yes nikon, please awaken the slumber giant that is Canon Inc.

It kinda reminds me when Intel was loseing out big time to AMD on the Athlon and Opteron market for years. Then Intel said enough, and I've never seen AMD recover fully.

I like to believe the first was a T&S because of how straight the buildings look. So 45mm T&S is my guess.

Here's mine.

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D Mark ii with WiFi/GPS or Without?
« on: February 20, 2013, 02:51:48 PM »

Nah, I wouldn't even want a GPS/Wifi antenna. Just a dedicated RT controller built in body.

Infact, to the OP, add RT controller on the list and I'd vote for that.

But you talk to the speedlight at 2.4Ghz...... That's your WiFi antenna.....

Great. Now that we know if they put Wifi inside but No RT triggering, Canon has been holding out on us since 6D.

They're all good, but just add some luminance to the reds when you push the saturation. It will keep the skin tones from getting too toasty.

Also, the antenna that will be used for wifi will probably be the same antenna used for communicating to your speedlight..... and it will probably also have the gps antenna as part of the same unit. It is far cheaper for canon to use 1 antenna design for ALL of it's cameras than to make different units and stock different replacement parts. Likewise, the touchscreen display...

You can expect these features on every DSLR to be released.

And if you can't use wifi or gps because of the metal body..... how do you think it manages to talk to a wireless flash???

The same way I can put RT speedlites through solid steel walls & doors.

I'd prefer built in RT triggering for speedlites.

I'd like a 135L f/1.8L IS USM just as much as anyone else but it's probably never going to happen soon.

EOS-M / Re: EOS M Autofocus Performance Won't Improve via Firmware [CR2]
« on: February 20, 2013, 09:36:03 AM »
I really doubt Canon won't take the advantage of a firmware update to try to market it as an AF improvement and then leave it as an unquantifiable statement about improved AF.

It is funny how many people knew this would be a stinker before it saw the inside of a showroom.  1st gen is not an excuse  - I would have fired the people who let a subpar product see light of day.  We are too kind to these people and show way too much loyalty.

I have been on the sidelines with my Rebel Xsi because I am a casual photographer and don't need this equipment to earn my living.  I will continue to wait one more cycle to see if Canon can fix AF issues with the Rebel, M series or the 6D and not keep making silly mistakes (one point AF on 6D)  - if the next product does not deliver then I guess Sony or Nikon will be getting my money.

EP-1?
X100?
X-pro1?
Iphone?
Ipad?
Windows Vista? (contrast win7pro)
Pretty much any 1st gen system or serious overhaul to a previous system.


All had serious flaws that is caused by 1st gen syndrome, compare 2nd gen products to these and its obvious of they're flaws. I never adopt 1st gen products.

Would you consider Sony RX1 is 1st gen of FF in compact body? Took over 1k photos with RX1, I didn't see any issues yet? including AF speed

You said "I never adopt 1st gen products", I thought you had 5D C before 5D III?  and what about your all time fav 135L?

Well yes. DPreview even agrees the RX1 has its flaws and so have other indie reviews. Like the the first IPhone, its ludicrously over priced.

I never adopted the 5Dc at release, I bought it well into the mk2 era. The 135L had its optical base in the FD 135mm, and improved on that design. Great product.

Also I own a d30 but why does that matter?

What flaws on RX1? Being the ONLY kid on the block, I don't blame Sony for pricing this camera at $2800. This is the only FF camera desgined in compact body for less than $3000, not to mention, a Carl Zeiss f2 lens is included.

To me...5D C is considered as 1st gen FF digital, regardless when you buy it.

Do you know the diff btw FD135 Vs 135L?

Why that matter? You bought and used 1st gen product(s), but you claimed that you never adopt 1st gen products. Don't you think that was little B.S?

Just like iPhone 1, so is the Sony RX1. Alone on the block but flawed anyway. Read DPreviews cons list for me.

The 5Dc was first gen, like the EOS-M. Neither of which I have/had any desire to purchase when released. I purchased the 5Dc when it was already obsolete from MK2. No BS, perhaps you mis-understand the context of this thread & comment wrong.
Sure the 135L has many improvements over its FD version, just like the 50mm 1.4 does.

RLPhoto, you are very twisty!!!

So now...5D III is out, would that make 5DC no longer 1st gen camera?

Any there any perfect camera(s) out there? with no cons?

AND NOW, you telling me that I mis-understood this thread & gave wrong comment.

 

How many times have I typed that yes, the 5Dc is a first gen camera and has many many flaws but I never bought it at release for the full asked price when it was the only option.

The thread states that the EOS M AF cannot be fixed with firmware. No surprise, because its a first gen product it will have all these flaws that cannot be fixed by firmware. Just like said 5Dc. But I never adopted products until Gen 2 was released. Simpy because gen2 will be better and gen1 will be a lot cheaper. Like iPhone 1 and iPhone 3G.

I can guarantee when RX-2 is released, I'll be able to buy a used RX-1 for half of what you paid or just get the fixed RX-2.
