EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5D3 vs. Nikon D600

read what you wrote again  , any Nikon camera

Thats right, any nikon camera.

then read my answer again about the time it takes to evaluate a AF system

Read my answer again, I've already have. You know your quite naive that the 51-point system is almost exactly the same from the D3-D700 system. They use a multi-cam 3500 Series AF system, which is good but old already which the canon 61-point system make it show its age.

I've always felt its AF was hesitant, while the canon just hits period.

The burden of proof is on you, and many others have already agreed that the 61-Point AF system is the best thing since sliced bread.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Working with film
« on: September 29, 2012, 11:21:27 AM »
I have aproblem,

Im starting a photography class in my high school next year, but the first year is film only.
I want to find a cheap canon film slr that is a descent camera, but won't break the bank, and the price won't hurt me if I dont use the camera for a long time.
I need to make sure it has a canon ef mount, or else I can't use my lenses.

EOs 650.  ::)

No but seriously and EOS-3 is great but I have a el cheapo rebel 2000 that fine.

 I don't even see why these camera's are being compared. The 5D3 is equal or better in every way except in DR. Especially the AF, which just makes any nikon camera cry and weep in the corner.

This is a typical illogical statement
Tell me in what way, I know at least 3 journalists and photographers  at different  photo magazines who are trying out the AF from Nikon and Canon
it takes a month to use different tests to determine what benefits one or the other system has.

Don't be so naive, 15-cross type points for nikon, 41-crosstype for canon and 5 of those are double cross-type which nikon doesn't have, Nor any other manufacturer.

Yes, I've demoed nikons great 51 point system but Canon's just takes it lunch money away.

Plus, most agency's have Nikon and Canon gear but so what? You should know better that real photogs will chose a camera mostly on ergos than anything else. so nikon shooter will stay with nikon and Canon shooters will stay with canon because of muscle memory.

Lenses / Re: Rumors about general porpouses lenses for APS-C
« on: September 29, 2012, 11:10:26 AM »
Dear all of you,
I am a 7D owner and I am waiting to deal for a new lens, a stadard one like 15-85 ("f/ is not good" bla bla bla) but I need one compact for trips.

Do you think that Canon will develop any new lenses for new APS-C rumored bodies in the near future?
If not I'll make a Christmas present with ol'15-85.

Thanks in advice !

17-55mm 2.8 Is worth the extra $$$.

Lenses / Re: what filter for my first "L" Lens
« on: September 29, 2012, 10:59:56 AM »
B&W MRC UV filters on all my glass. They're superb.

Of course they're are some who believe the lens hood will save they're front element. Its true to an extent, but what happens if you covering a cycling event in which a stone was hurled directly into your front element. Which in my case broke my UV filter but I unscrewed it and continued shooting that day. Yes, that stone would have destroyed my lovely 24L's front element but B&W saved the day.  ;D

<p><strong>Save a lot<br />

</strong>I’ve been told by a couple of people that the Canon EOS 5D Mark II will see a big price drop this coming week in the USA, we should see it in other countries as well. We’re told the new price will be $1699 USD for the body until they’re all gone, which won’t take too long I don’t think.</p>
<p>Keep an eye here and we’ll post when the new price takes effect.</p>

Why are we so interested in teh 6D again when mk2 prices are this good?

i had a closer look at the D600 autofocus... as good as it looks on paper i think it´s not that the 6D is much worse.

sure the D600 has more AF points but they are so cramped together that 66% are useless.

i could not test sport or action and how good the D600 is at tracking moving objects.

based at??? your own tests

1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx

1dx  f/2 200mm

I love this shot, but darn it, I prefer symmetry in reflections.  ;D

Very nice.

EOS Bodies / Re: Comparing 6D with 5D3

Don't forget ergonomics and button layout.   Myself coming from a 7D, it would be awkward going to the smaller joystick less 6D.   Personally I like the larger body, even the 60D feels a bit small. 

Personally I think the joystick is a con.  The setup on the 6D is just like the 60D and I loved it.  Once I went to my 7D, I was disappointed.  You have to constantly switch back and forth between the pad and joystick.

The wheel sounds like it would be very awkward to quickly change focus points around precisely.

The wheel indeed is very annoying to change AF points.

If you want better DR, Spend some Dosh on a filter set. ::)

It seems the 200mm F/2L is the most desired lens here.  ;D

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Adobe RGB or sRGB please?
« on: September 28, 2012, 02:51:23 PM »
Thank you all for your feedback. I think I shall continue to shoot raw and Ljpeg but with adobeRGB set to take advantage of the larger colour range if I want to show a photo immediately to friends on my laptop.

99% of any monitor made today cannot display the extra color range of ARGB. Infact, some web browsers may show your colors dull because of this.

Software & Accessories / Re: On-line Wedding albums
« on: September 27, 2012, 06:07:17 PM »
I have just shot my first wedding and the couple want a wedding album made up.

I was going to do it on-line so can anyone recommend a good on-line wedding album site.

....or am I better getting it done professionally.

Any help is appreciated but don't want the album ending up costing a fortune.

UK based if possible.

Note: I want a physical wedding album printed up not just an on-line version.

I've had good experience with Adorama's Books and software.

EOS Bodies / Re: New Canon EOS-M
« on: September 27, 2012, 12:48:58 PM »
Hello everyone,

Just had a rather interesting day spent with a couple of the Canon reps.. Basically iv got to play with the new EOS-M.. Build quality is very good, it has a touch screen which is pretty much the same as a iPhone ( very good even tho I strongly dislike touch screens on cameras ).. The only downside to today was I wasn't able to try it with either the standard kit lens or with the EF adaptor.. Ill uploaded some pics.. If you have any questions just ask..

Update.. For some reason I cant upload the images to Canon Rumors so Ill add them to my flickr

Nice. This will be my mirrorless camera.
