EOS Bodies / Re: whats going to be better?

5D mk2 or 6D?
pricing should be about the same, and i want to go full frame.

6D > 5D2 > 5Dc prices will drop to around sub-500$, Which will be a steal.

Yes, that's true, and they're hardly going to come out with an entry level FF with a higher pixel count than the 5D.

My biggest reluctance with getting a 7D is only the low light performance where it badly trails behind the likes of the D7000.

In my experience Canon don't currently have anything in APS-C format that produces usable files at even iso 1600.

I've shot files that are usable up to 6400 on the 7D.

The 5D3's AF takes a wet dump on the d600. They shouldn't even be compared here, now the d800 on ther other hand... That's the real competition to the 5D3.

D600 isn't competing with 5D3.  There are more than $1K reasons why...

Because its 1k$ more camera.

Nikon has poked the sleeping beast and it has awaken.

It will soon unleash it's fury.

Nikons reaction will look similar to this.

O_O

Software & Accessories / Re: Selling Your Wedding Pics Online???
« on: September 12, 2012, 07:24:17 PM »
I have a quick question for your wedding photographers out there:

I recently did a wedding and I'm trying to post the pics online for people to purchase/order.  I'm not looking to make money off the pictures, but I just wanted to make it so everyone could get the pics that they wanted.  What do you guys use for this?  I was thinking something like Snapfish, but I'm open to suggestions. 

Also, I'm using Lightroom and I was wondering how people use it to export their pics for these sites.  Do you do 100% jpgs, at high quality (90/100)?

Thanks - and I really appreciate all the input.

I Use Viewbook + Fotomoto Plig-ins software to sell prints and downloads. Its flawless.

Interesting, but m00t.

Lolz, your machines are in a whole different league than my machine. Yet, you have these performance issues...

E6600 C2D - OC'ed to 2.93ghz
4GB of 667Mhz RAM
8800 Nvidia GTS 640MB G-card.
Standard JBOD setup
Dual monitors.
Win 7 pro.

My machine is getting older but It doesn't sweat over the 22mp 5D3 files a bit, Does it take alittle longer than LR3? It doesn't feel like it to me.

It surprises me to hear such systems having problems with LR4.

Invest in a Samsung 830 series SSD and see it jump back to life!    :)  (but avoid LR 4 or 4.1)  ;)

I'm using LR4.1 :|

epic fail! No lens mount, no zoom = no go.
like Sigma DP1, DP2, Leica X-1 ... dead in the water. 

I will never buy a one-focal-length camera.

X100 anyone? One of the most popular cams around until the x-pro 1.

This is just awesome, I applaud you sony.

Look at the X-pro 1's price compaired to the X100 though, your getting the most hyped feature of both cameras in the hybrid EVF/OVF AND a good 35mm equivilent lens for less than the price of the interchangeble lens body by itself.

$2800 on the other hand looks to be far more than the price of the new Nikon D600 which will have a similar sensor and a similar price to that camera and a good quality lens so its really the minaturisation yout paying for.

I can't imagine many users preffering the RX1 to an interchangeble lens equivilent.

Your forgetting that this has never been done before. FF digital sensor in a body around the size of an X100, it has no direct competitor. Plus, Zeiss make's fantastic lenses.

The only some-what competition would be a Leica M9. I wished canon had the guts to do a FF mirrorless kinda like this.

D600? With a 35mm F/1.8? The IQ would be quite terrible unless you got the 35mm 1.4G but, wait you've just spent the same amount of money as the RX1.

I know, the least exciting type of post, but I would be very grateful for any advice on what to bring and what to leave behind.

This summer I had planned on going out with a pro-photographer, but he was unable to secure the permits in time. So, my wife and I are heading to Europe in a few weeks. We will be hitting London, France and Brussels.

My current kit:

5Dm3
24-105L
70-200L IS II
14L II
50L
100L IS

I will be carrying whatever kit I bring in a Lowepro Flipside 400AW.

I was thinking about taking the 50, the 70-200, 14, a monopod and one flash. The first two lenses are my favorite walk around combo. Any advice would be very welcome. Also: should I look into a second battery (I don't have a the optional grip)?

Simple, 24-105L + 50mm 1.2L + 5d3. Done.

I use a Asus 19" monitor and an ACER 23" monitor I got from Newegg. They're pretty good as long as you calibrate them. I use the Spyder 3 elite.

IPS is the best, but eh, I get great results from what I have. If you consider most people's will not have an IPS monitor to even view your images at there best, Why bother?

This is an excellent point and often overlooked. Not to belittle the importance of monitor calibration, but it is important to remember what your final output is going to be.

Like most things, color accuracy is a "garbage in, garbage out" situation, so you do want to start with the most accurate rendition you can, but frankly I agree with RL that there is no point in obsessing over it unless you are working in a professional environment that demands absolute color accuracy (product photos for advertising for example)

If your images are going to be viewed primarily on the web you can't very well go around the world and adjust everyone's monitor before they go to your website.

If your final product is printed with a CMYK process be prepared for colors that are much different than what you see on your screen. You will need to adjust your images accordingly and if color accuracy is critical, you might want to consider letting a professional color house do the final adjustments. 

BTW, I've been know to go around Best Buy and Apple stores and pull up my website on every device I can find, just to see how it looks under different environments. Particularly important for websites. Some of the clerks get a bit annoyed, but most are good-natured about it.

If you can make a photo look stunning on a calibrated crap monitor, The more awesome it will be one a better one.  ;D

If zeiss made there lenses natively with USM AF, I'd never buy a canon lens.

They rarely go on sale.
