EOS-M / Re: Poll: Would you have bought the M3? (North America)
« on: February 09, 2015, 12:07:33 PM »
No. No DPAF.

Haha! Great! I'll be buying a set and if its as good as my YN3 transmitter, I could put this old 430EXII to use again.

An Updated 180mm Macro? IS perhaps? A Zoom 180mm Macro with IS?

EOS Bodies / Re: the "new" medium format?

I chose MF for the sync speed, ability to use LF cameras, the larger sensor will eventually have even more MP and More DR with every generation, and the process itself is slower.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: POLL: 5Ds/5DsR first impressions
« on: February 06, 2015, 09:47:41 PM »
Great studio camera but I already have MF and a 5d3. Doesn't fit into my system,  maybe when the prices are around 2500$ on a fire sale I'd consider it.

EOS Bodies / Re: Who is going to buy the new 5Ds's?
« on: February 06, 2015, 06:27:12 PM »
I just read Brian's update over at TDP and he has a lot of detail from Chuck Westfall.  One cool thing I learned is that the 5Ds has the Auto ISO exposure compensation in M mode just like the 1D X.  That along with some of the new 7DII features seems like there are a lot of little goodies to go along with the new body.  I think I'll be trading in my 5DIII for one as soon as they're available.
My disappointment is fading a bit, so I have started to look for things to be happy about. And there are some.

A couple of important ones to me are having support for a high precision focusing screen for manual focus and spot metering following the AF point. Anyone seen anything about that?

See http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/professional/products/professional_cameras/digital_slr_cameras/eos_5ds#Specifications

"Focusing Screen

"•AF point-linked spot metering not provided"
Thanks! That raised my disappointment level back to where it was this morning. I´m out.
I'm out too.

EOS Bodies / Re: Bingo! New Canon 5Ds has 50.6 MP new rumored specs
« on: February 06, 2015, 04:14:17 PM »
So Canon's business strategy is like Taco Bell? That's the best analogy I've heard yet ;D

LOL...not really, in a serious way, but Marsu's description reminded me of it. Glad you like it, even if it's just meant for a laugh.   :P
But taco bell has quite a system to support those tacos. Like those cinnamon twists and Burritos.  ::) ::) ::)

BIG DISSAPOINTMENT!

I really believed this would be a game changer. Instead it seems we are getting a 50MP FF 7DII.

I had, for all practical purposes, three major items on my motivation list, in order of priority: DR, Low ISO noise and resolution. I get resolution. I still don't know what to expect from noise, but it seems I can conclude that DR still lags at least 3 stops behind Sony/Nikon. BIG dissapointment.

Bryan is happy to use HDR/bracketing to solve this issue. Animals don't sit still! Insects don't sit still, wind moves trees, leaves, grass, hair etc. etc. The only way to get all information out of a high contrast image is to have sufficient DR. BIG dissapointment!

I was ready to push the preorder button as soon as it turned green. Now I'll spend the weekend going through my gear and figure out what I'll keep and what I'll sell. Unless I get magnificent noise performance, I think I'm done!  >:(

You know what? I agree 100%... I have been very happy, and I still am, with the 1dX, but a 50mp 7d in the new  big splash 5d announcement is just really very very lousy.... That means THIS is the landscape camera they made an effort with, and the 1dx2 and 5d4 will not be better in terms of sensor tech, dr, low iso noise and so on. So the next chance for Canon to catch up is 4-5 years down the line... It's just too much stupid. I'm not in the DR-crowd, but to see the same sensor tech as 2007 is just not good for Canon. And all the people that still didn't leave Canon when the 5d3 came out, I think a lot of them will now. The 11-24 can always be adapted to Nikon ::)

Sorry to say that, but the whole talk you just gave is nothing but nonsense.

Nobody who makes great outstanding images.. nobody.. cares for 1 cent about 1 stop of DR difference.
Only amateurs on internet forums are obsessed with tech talk. THAT is dissapointing for the whole Photography scene.... :(

and why then are we looking after better lenses, higher resolution??
only a fool can come up with a answer like yours

The only FOOL here is you and people who think better gear or 2 stops more DR will make them better Photographer. You just kidding yourself. But my breath is wasted on people like you....
I smell Troll and it smells like a rancid canon fanboy.

oh we dont want a canon fanboy on a canon site.. do we?
we only want rancid sony and nikon fanboys here .. right?
Its not a offical canon site and some fanboys of common sense.

Many of us are waiting for 5D4 to see the big body improvements and the 5D-s is a repackaged 5D3 with some tweaks.
What body improvements are you hoping for?  While not quite up to the build of the 1D X, I think the 5DIII is a great body and a huge improvement over the 5DII.

-All Crosstype AF
-Link AF point Spot Metering
-Dual DOF buttons like 1DX.
-7DII Lever
-Blinking AF Point in Low Light.
-Improved Video & DPAF
-Touchscreen to use the DPAF effectively.
-Wifi, GPS, Built in RT...
-A microwave and coffee maker. Must be atleast 1000W.
Got it - and I'm sure they'll keep the 1D features as 1D features, but the other stuff might be nice.  The microwave would be helpful for cold mornings ;)
Your probably right but with the release of 2 5D-s versions, Lets hope canon starts to trickle down more features.

Its probably the JPGs but I expected more. On the bright side, if you we're going to buy a 5D-s, you'll have LR6 to process the RAW's, Which hopefully will have GPU support.

This was..... painful to the eyes to watch.  XP

Meh, would skip it if it did arrive to the US.

This would be a camera that should rarely be seen above ISO 800. Controlled lighting means you can control DR in a studio to what the limits are for any camera. This camera should be paired with an equal amount of strobist gear to make the most of those 50mp.
