Canon General / Re: Is canon going to come back?
« on: December 02, 2012, 05:25:07 PM »
Ok AF is fantastic but it isnt a revolution! We had great AF systems before, but we never had 36Mp in a FF Body.

Ok then because of the rebels, but does that matter? They are resting now because they sold so much. Look at the crop Bodys, all have the same 4 year old sensor.

If you would open your eyes you would see that they are behind. d4 outperforms the 1dx in high iso, and autofocous is good in both. d800 is the best studio camera on the market, 1ds3 isnt what i once was, 5d2 and 5d3 cant compete here either. The 5d3 is the best press camera out there for sure. But i dont need somethign like that.

Lol. 1Dx >>>>>> D4 all day everyday! Many pros already agree on this conclusion.

The d800 is the best 35mm studio camera. The 5D3 is the best 35mm multi-media camera.

I don't understand what the argument is here? Two tools for different fools.

Yeah, the 5d3 is trying to be pleasing everybody. But i am not everybody, non of us is everybody. I know that the d800 is the better camera for me but i am trying to find out if it justifies switching sides just for that fact, or if canon is going to be far better when they release their new technology.

Technology moves on, and it will get better. The d800 has the better sensor and the 5d3 is a better multi-media camera. I wouldn't jump ship for either one.

RLPhoto: then dont say it´s a better body. say it´s a better body for you. I just try to find out which one is better for me.

@dtaylor
14MP=Bigger pixels=better noise performance?
If not i am misinformed.
You cant scale it up, honestly there are people who tried it and it doesnt work. iStock doesnt like files without exifs.

It's a better overall body.

6D: ok it´s not out yet but i would have loved it with 14mp i can tell you that now. But with 20 its only 1 too low for a bigger size on istock so it´s out.

Yeah 11 Canon ;)

1. Ok
2. But they again didnt want us to have clean out. thanks to magic lantern!
3. Used them both? Better ergonomics for us, worse for nikon guys.
4. Ok, but d800 has that too (dont know how noisy)
5. Who would use that? I dont.
6. If you get a high MP body dont you wanna shoot at high res?
7. Totally, but i dont shoot fast sports or wildlife. And 6FPS arent really enough for action
8. Simplified from what? yes the 5d2, but i actually dont really know th nikon one so i cant give you a +for the canon here.
9. Why would you use it and not just do that in post?
10. Nikon can use the d4 battery...

I'm not going to debate further because those things are stuff that the d800 doesn't offer. Which you may not use, but I use regularly, and thus couldn't do the things with a d800.

As for video, you still lack the controls the canon has, have moire, and that magic lantern still ports to canons first. So no, the canon is a better overall camera.

The 5D3 is a better overall package because of these things.

1. AF superiority
2. Better video functions and controls
3. Better ergonomics. The d800 is a step back from the d700.
4. Silent shutter is whisper quiet.
5. In-camera RAW processing which is great for photo booths.
6. Small, medium and full RAW settings
7. 6 frames per second shooting
8. Simplified menu system
9. Double exposure. (Not sure if the d800 has this)
10. Shares all the battery's from the semi-pro lineup.

These are practical things that make the 5D3 a better overall camera body.

Third Party Manufacturers / Pentax FF DSLR for under 1499$ at release.
« on: November 29, 2012, 04:48:51 PM »
If Pentax Released a FF DSLR for for under 1499$, Would it take them back to the top like they used to be? Pentax has some great glass but lack-luster bodies. They are cheaper than other options though.

What would it take to consider a pentax system again?

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 6D vs 5D MKII (Focusing?)
« on: November 29, 2012, 04:04:34 PM »
I expect both are wretched and If its any better than that, good work canon.

EOS Bodies / Re: Asking for 5D III firmware improvements
« on: November 29, 2012, 04:02:42 PM »
1. AF focus speed with Speedlites

2. Blink AF point fix

3. f/8 Focusing

Its funny because the 5D3 61-point AF is fantastic while also being wretched at the same time.

Hi,

I would like to thank all of you all. It has been very enlightening and enjoyable communicating on this forum. I have received more than I have given. Hopefully that equation will change - me giving more...

Thanks again.

The wires over the model head are a no go in photography. Bad composition.
Wires? You are looking at the wires?

Dude! Surely you can do better!

Well, It would be better w/o the wires. Block them out with your thumb and it looks better to me. Nothing some PS can't fix. ::)
