PowerShot / Re: Canon PowerShot G1 X II Final Specifications
« on: February 11, 2014, 12:56:55 PM »

What are you on about?

were not comparing DSLRs to P&S's. Were comparing P&S to P&S and the G-series cams have an advantage of being flexible. I'd take my G15 over a Rx100 anyday for what I do. Small light kits with High Sync speeds means I don't have to ND my SLR, I don't have to carry my SLR, I don't have to take as big as lights as with my SLR.

Your not seeing the potential if this G1x II has an electronic shutter.

well read again you may get it. others seem to get it.

hint: i don´t buy a camera for a feature i don´t need.
it´s not so hard to grasp is it?

well you don´t know what i see... do you? ;)
be sure i see it... but i don´t really care.
my needs for a P&S are different i guess.

I guess overpriced P&S are right down your alley then. I think its hard for you to grasp that some will buy a camera for a feature.  ::)

Oh, I can hear the laughter of your overpriced P&S that isn't half as capable as an old G12. Like flash.  ;D

you mean sync speed?

to be honest i could not care less on a P&S and i guess that applies to 90% of the customers. 

i don´t have an external flash with me all the time.
and when i know that i will shoot flash i sure don´t grab one of my P&S.

I'm not the only one. David hobby used an old g-series cam for the same reasons. It's a power users camera which the Rx100 is NOT. It's not even comparable to G-series cameras in flexibility.

nobody said your the only one... but you and david are how many percent of the possible buyers? ::) ::) ::) ::) ::) ::)  ::) ::) ::) ::) ::) ::) ::) ::)

im a strobist myself but i never used my P&S for that.
strobist setups normaly need time and gear to setup, i don´t do it out of the blue.
oh nice motive..... let´s setup my 3 strobes + umbrellas and stands i carry all day to shoot it with my P&S.
never happend to me. ;)

so when i shoot that stuff i use my DSLR.

Also, this forum doesn't really cater to the 90% of customers.  ::) ::) ::)

exactly.. way to many geeks here.

the majority doesn´t even know what x-sync is.
and so i doubt it´s a big point on their feature list.

This camera is horrendous looking but what is the sync speed?

I'm always amazed that people care about how a camera looks.  It doesn't take pictures of itself.

If you like ugly looking expensive niche market P&S slow lensed cameras, be my guest. Just don't expect everyone will agree with you.

f2-f3.9 is called slow today.... mhm. good to know.

too bad my sony RX100 is f1.8-4.9.... where do i get a P&S with f1.2-2.
i don´t want to be seen with a slow point and shoot.   :-[

G15. F1.8-F2.8.  ::)

to small a sensor.

i can hear them laugh already....  :-[

ps: and it´s not good looking either.

Oh, I can hear the laughter of your overpriced P&S that isn't half as capable as an old G12. Like strobist stuff, a larger zoom range, and you know that very useful sync speed. ;D

I think this image would be better if presented in a series. Stand alone, I find it hard to find merit in this shot.

Elegance in simplicity, but the ergos on this must be weird. It looks nice but... why? Why would I buy this?

It's f/2 at the wide end, which isn't exactly slow, and how does any of this relate to the one topic I mentioned - it's looks?  I just don't see why anyone cares at all for how a camera looks!

Because you read my comment and didn't factor the second part of my question about the sync speed. You automatically assumed that all I care about were the looks, quite the contrary if it has an electronic shutter, I'd probably buy this solely for the high true sync speed. It still looks like a steaming pile of $&@! but it will be a high true sync speed, ambient light overpowering brick that I'd buy.

I'll let other people buy this then I might buy one second hand on craigslist or ebay when they are disappointed, maybe.

Someone buy this SSD and let me know how it is. Thinking about buying one if I win the lottery twice.

Give it 4 years then you'll buy two for your computer. :P

Lenses / Re: 24-70/2.8 Canon or Tamron: Which did you choose and why?
« on: February 02, 2014, 10:54:22 PM »
I chose the tammy because I found a great deal for on on CL. 800$ basically unused and I usually end up shooting @ 5.6 or smaller. The MK2 24-70 was better but not enough to matter when VC is far more useful to drag the shutter.

74
I'd get the 6D.

75
Sure. It won't replace your 5D3 but it will make a nice back for that fine canon glass.
