Yes. The 5Dc still has better IQ than any APSc camera canon makes. You just have to work with it a bit harder.

The 5D3 will never limit me. It's all I could ask from a camera.

I finally bought this bracket. It's small and compact but does the job.


Can I ask why you chose this style? Why lower the flash to the lens rather than raise it?   

Because I don't want to carry a giant hulking contraption for vertical direct flash. Small, light and fast are key to my shooting style and a huge flash bracket just won't work for me.

a proper 12-24 for full frame would be absolutely killer.  the 16-35 just isnt sharp enough for such duty. I am iteching to go full frame but not having a 10-22 kinda sucks

I really don't know if they can make 12-24 (12mm without being fisheye).. I think 14mm is the minimum wide for full frame images..




Sounds like you have 'Mirror Lockup' enabled. Look through the manual and your cameras settings on how to change it.

Happened to me last week After a night of shooting star trails and forgetting to reset the lockup :)

Its over Nine Thousand!  ;D

People are quick to hate. Remember when the 5DMKIII came out  :o yet now everyone things its incredible...

Think its quite intriguing! I would give it a go!
Really? I still think the 5D3 has a craptastic sensor, with its decade old DR capabilities.

Not everyone bends over to Canon's marketing machine. Me and most of my friends are still shooting our 5D2s, happily waiting for the 5D4 / 5DX or whatever the next generation will be called.

I guess people who think the 5D3 is a great upgrade from the 5D2, will also like the Powershot N. They will buy anything that Canon throws at them.

The 5d2 was a flawed camera and never bothered with one. The d700 was brilliant in AF + Noise, but no better than my 5Dc for resolution and video.

I jumped from the 5Dc ----> 5D3 but I freely admit that 3500$ retail was overpriced. After it all said and done, I rather have the 5D3 over D700 or D800.

convert it to infra red....

I have to be honest I never considered converting to infrared, as I thought this was mainly for astronomy photography. After a tiny bit of web searching I see it has other creative uses as well.. Have many people done this on this forum?
I can't seem to find an infrared sample gallery. If so, is there a company anyone can recommend (I am in Canada) that does this conversion? I am seeing for the few hundred dollars I can only seem to get for a used 60D I might as well keep it!


I shoot Infrared often for the surreal effect it has on a normal scene.

If its as good as the 35mm 1.4, I'd buy this over any 70-200 2.8. If I'm going to carry a heavy lens, Let it be heavy.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Thinking of downgrading my 5d3 system
« on: January 07, 2013, 10:53:04 AM »
The mk3 is not the problem, the problem is those heavy 2.8 zooms which the 70-200L weights about 4LBs.

That's one reason I've come to love small, light primes. 24L + 50 1.4 + 135L are fantastic to carry. If you want mobility and lens speed, try some small primes.

Not a solution for everything, unless you carry at least 2 bodies around. Again, not for family photos.

I've taken plenty of family photos with just a Minolta maxxum AF and a 50mm 1.8. Just takes a different approach.

How do you approach this type of situation, when you are 1.5ft away from your subject? No room to go back or forward: http://albums.phanfare.com/isolated/0TKGEcfb/1/5903138

Find a different approach.

Since you are a prime shooter....what approach would you take? Swap to wider prime :P

See, You answered your own question.

Carry multiple prime lenses in a sunny day like this for family photos...WOW, what a creative photographer ::)     NO THANKS

You yourself said it.
