Nice shots RL... but there has to be some NR going on there... I had a 5Dc and I could get visible noise at 400 iso and needed denoising....
I agree the image the 5D gives is very good. But I tested the amount of noise it had compared to a T2i and at 1600 ISo the T2i was cleaner. The only advantage the 5Dc has was shallow DoF, rest the T2i won on other criteria.
Hey y'all!, I'm a long time lurker but first time poster.
I'm shooting an indoor wedding in December, and plan to rent a 5D mkIII to complement my 7D and a 40D.
Coming from a 7D is there anything major I should be aware of using the 5Diii? Tips and/or advice?
Lenses I own:
-the nifty fifty
-Canon 17-55 2.8 IS
-Kiron 105 2.8 Macro
Gear I plan to rent:
Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC
Canon 70-200 2.8L is II
Canon 5D mk III
1. Will I need 60mb/s cards to shoot RAW with the 5Diii, or will 30mb/s suffice?
2. In your experience/opinion, how much speed/capacity do you need? (I'll have (3) 4GB 30mb/s cards, (1)8GB 30mb/s, and hopefully (3) shiny new 16GB 60mb/s cards (all SanDisk Extreme, Ultra, or Extreme III) Good? Should I pick up some more?
3. I have 2 chargers and should have at least (2) batteries per camera.
Ok...This is more of a rant than anything....so here goes!
NEVER EVER...EVER...EVER have an amateur, shooting with a different camera brand and very poor quality lenses shoot a wedding with you ( you had sympathy for this person and wanted to help them grow as a photographer and allowed them to assist you, photographing)
Holy smokes!!! I'm using L glass plus a 5D MK II and in order to get the quality of their picture to something half decent and that looks like a hint of my pictures, talk about POST POST POST...Geesh!
They were using a Pentax K-X and a Tamron AF-70-300. Now before everyone jumps on my case, I did provide a canon 40D with Canon Lenses ( NON-L) for him to use, however, it was sooo different than his own camera, he couldn't figure it out within the few hours he was there.
This is not a rip on the photographer, he actually has a great eye for composition....he just needs a better system....sorry..
Short of great canon (non-L primes) 85 1.8, heck the 50 mm 1.8 Mark 1....I don't know I'll ever buy poor quality lenses...
sorry....more of a rant...lol
Have a good night.
Agreed. I upgraded from a 1D mk.ii to the 5Dc... the IQ jump was amazing. But I see a similar jump in IQ to the 5Diii (which is very similar to the IQ of the 5Dii).
How good is the IQ of a 5Dc though? Is it impressive by today's standards?
I'm planing to use it for Wedding portraits mostely.
Thank you guys
I see there are and were a lot of topics about lenses that we cannot really compare (different category or budget)
But i'm about to buy a (budget) portrait lens and i'm really confused..
What you guys think about the 85mm f1.8 and 100mm f2.0
(overal quality: Resolution, CAs, Focusing, Bokeh, etc)
Or maybe a third party lens like sigma 85mmf1.4 (is it worth the money)
Thank you in advance for your experience feedbacks
Hi there, I've been looking around online but can't get a satisfactory answer. The issue is this -
I use Lightroom and I export images as jpegs at 100% (I know 95% saves space etc but I have terabytes to spare not an issue). I also know dpi means squat for web. Now, when I first started out I wasn't resizing mainly because I wasn't aware I had to. I'm still not sure! I always upload to flickr and facebook, never print
. I understand facebook applies some kind of compression to the images and modifies them to fit. I don't know what flickr does. I've been experimenting with the megapixel resizing and even 2mp looks fine. My question is this - Should I just upload full size and let facebook and flickr deal with it? Or is there a way to calculate the optimum resize setting (1280 x 720 etc). What do you guys do?
I shoot RAW with a 7D / 5D mkII.
I appreciate any light shed on this, thanks!
