EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D3 Color Balance vs 5D2
« on: November 08, 2012, 03:29:50 PM »
I'm not sure if this has been discussed before but I recently upgraded from Mark2 -> Mark3 and one thing that I noticed instantly was the improved colors/character in the RAW files compared to the Mark2. Not only do they look (according to my tase) more pleasing and vidid but the entire files seem more balanced and neutral yet punchy out of cam. It's almost like I don't need to color correct (which I ALWAYS need to do with the Mark2 files, even with accurate WB, there's a warm/reddish bias)

And when processing the Mark3 files further it only gets better. I'm not sure if this is thanks to a much better AWB or the new color filter, improved profiles or whatever. The last time I got this "feeling" straight out of cam was when shooting with the old classic 5D original - and that's a good sign! Of course, we are talking about subtle observations here but still to me very very noticeable - and I thought it would be fun to share and perhaps hear your opinions as well.

Cheers,

I admit the 5D3 files are fantastic. I went from 5Dc ------> 5D3 and it has a similar color tone. I still like the 5Dc a-little better but the 5D3 is close enough.

Hello all,

I've been eyeballing getting the Canon 50mm L lens, the f/1.2 one.
Reading the reviews on Amazon.com...I seen references about the lens having a problem with backfocusing.

Can someone explain this to me...what it is, why it happens?

Have others experienced this with this lens? Is it a bug through all of these lenses, or does it happen here and there?

Is this a reason to avoid this lens? If so..why hasn't Canon fixed this?

Thank you in advance,

cayenne

This might Help.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Cruise to the Cancun. What lenses should I take?
« on: November 08, 2012, 03:07:16 PM »
I'll be on a cruise to Cancun for 5 Days and Nights. I'll be expecting friends, family and possibly alot of Stock photo's in the trip. Landscapes, people, places, inside the ship at night and some street. I want to pack light, and perhaps a CR user has been on a cruise before.

5D3

24L
50L
135L
24-105L
580 EXII

I was thinking 24-105L + 50L + 580EX II but wondered if I'll really need the 24L for the dark dance floors of the ship. I'm torn.

What should I bring?

So its 87 lost customers to 10 more customers.

Lets make this interesting.

How many would you Buy a 24-105L MK.2 with the same features as the 24-70 F4L, @ the price of 1500$?

+1 for me. +1 this to agree.

All I'd want is alittle more DR and the blink AF point fix soon.

Everything else is perfect on the MK.3. Can't complain. Its almost the perfect camera.

I got a warranty card with mine.

A blank warranty card doesn't mean anything.

I brought my 24-105 to Canon service Center in Irvine CA. The 1st thing they asked me "do have receipt with you?"

Eh, I still got one in the box.

How can you get the receipt when they are NOT authorized dealer?

I have the warranty card in my hands right now. If it actually helps in a claim is another matter.  ;D

But what silent majority is supposed to be Canon's target audience that wants to pay more to get less? Even newbies to dlsr won't say "what? built-in gps? I'll take two!" when the Nikon body next to it has more mp and a lower price tag.

For many years, it has been argued that people who buy Macs, and more recently, iPhones, are paying more to get less.  So maybe it's the same silent majority that has made Apple the largest company in the world...
Apple managed to cultivate a "cool" factor that Canon will never have.

Mac's do not have the majority market share because of their price tag.

Mobile devices are another story though...

I know their sales numbers on aggregate haven't been stellar, but in general, the company wouldn't be here very long if it couldn't course correct as needed.

And then there is Kodak....  ::)

A Straight forward poll.

Edit: I just got my 24-105L from Ebay for 750$. I'm really digging it, My copy is a razor. Check out this little quick shot of the lens cap.

Jpeg straight from camera.

F/4 - 1/15 - ISO 800

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1Dx ISO100 high DR shadows SNR improvement
« on: November 06, 2012, 12:53:55 PM »
If you nail your exposures on either camera, only good photos will result.

.....but why would you do this when it's so much fun to intentionally underexpose an image by 5 stops then crank on the sliders in Lightroom. Yeeehawww, keep pushing those sliders over to the right!

Good times :)

  That all above is  not about the fun of making underexposed shots and pulling them up but about  normal 0EV shots for high DR scenes  and where it is desired  to see details in deep shadows instead of noise or instead of totally black areas.   And how to push 1Dx limits in this area.
   If one is trying to make fun of something  and this one does not fully realize what is the whole subject about  then yes  this making people to smile but not about the joke itself  but rather about the person who tried to make such joke))
Have fun  )))

I love quotes taken out of context.   ::)
