EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 5Ds & EOS 5Ds R Image & Video Samples
« on: February 06, 2015, 12:34:18 PM »
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

EOS Bodies / Re: What do/don't you like about the 5Ds?

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.

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.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5Ds or 5DsR

If your shooting landscapes, the R version would have little issues with moire.

Fashion or Studio applications with fine repeating clothing would be better off with the standard version.

I won't be getting the 5D-s anytime soon and will be waiting for the 5D4.

Love the review. Great Images and the only reasons I didn't get the 645z was the sync speed and the crop factor. Otherwise, if pentax had a set of LS lenses, I'd already be neck deep in Pentax MF.

53
I would think that is what the 7d line would be for.

I don't think it will merge. The Specs are impressive for a rebel but rebel's cramp my hand after shooting awhile. A 50D never hurt my hand with its bigger frame.
7D2 is a big price jump from a rebel and only for a bigger grip? I don't see it.

I use a thinktank retrospective series bag, it slightly inconspicuous but the thickness of the back gives it away. A billingham bag would probably be more incognito or the cooler idea from Macguyver.

So disappointing, a Third-Gen M camera I'll be skipping. DPAF would have made this a sweet camera.

No DPAF is killer. Yet another generation of M that i'll skip.  :P

EOS Bodies / Re: Future Canon DSLR Strategy for More Focused Products?
« on: February 05, 2015, 04:41:08 PM »
We merged the 1D line to split up the 5D line. :P :P :P  ;D ;D ;D Whatever, as long as we get new glass to go with them.

Lenses / Re: A New Nifty Fifty Coming [CR1]
« on: February 05, 2015, 04:38:48 PM »
Cool. With STM, it won't be the creaky, buzzy AF that we're all used to. I'd expect a price bump to 199$ with the new motor and hopefully updated build.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

They have pretty well thought-out ergonomics and their consistency allows us to migrate between bodies with little effort.

Any radical change would likely be a step, fall or plummet backwards.  Why do change things for the sake of a gimmick unless there was some huge gain to be had?
If it ain't broke, don't fix it was probably Microsofts philosphy and it allowed Apple to flourish. Now Apple have the same problem with it's user interface. It's hard to improve it without a radical change whereas Android probably has alot more scope to change gradually.
This is evolution I suppose. The dinosaurs were pretty happy they way things were at some point but the small furry animals adapted and modified to the changing world.
Usually we don't spot extinction coming until it's too late.
Software is not a camera. I'd hate if my camera layout moved as much as software does.
