Siglauncher... ROFL. I love that name. *wonders who in hell would buy that*

Software & Accessories / Re: Lightroom 4 -v- Capture One
« on: July 10, 2012, 12:54:19 PM »
I've used a trial version of the capture one. At the time, I loved it.

However I obtained a copy of lightroom 3 (haven't got lr4 yet) and well, it flawlessly runs with photoshop (meaning you can export straight to cs5). From there you finish in photoshop, save it and lightroom picks it up again if you need to use lightroom to do one or two more things. THAT fact swayed me from capture one. Other than that, I'd propose that you should use whatever feels more natural to you.

I've used phocus too (hasselblad's program), didn't like it. It was ok, again one could probably get used to it, but it didn't grab me.

I've always kind of had a problem with the bright 'oh wow, look at me' canon's. And they really do, scream 'look at me'. I've attracted way too much attention with the times I've been dragging one around.

I'll admit I was a nikon user most of my life, and the whole look at me white thing wasn't an issue. However now that I've arrived in the canon camp, I'll be seriously contemplating the neoprene ones when I have a big white lenses of my own (won't be that far away).

I'll also go forth and admit that I have gaffer tape on my camera, across the name plate at the top to decrease people staring at me (not sure if that works btw), and some tape on my bottom grip to protect it from scrapes (that one works!).

Well on the topic of the proposed D400, the nikon folk seem to be waiting an eternity for that one too. Im morbidly interested in this one, doesn't mean I'd jump ships.. again though! Sounds like it's going be a weapon either way.

Maybe all of us canon people shouldn't feel too bad about waiting for things.

EOS Bodies / Re: 1dx a compromise?
« on: July 08, 2012, 04:16:53 AM »
Even medium format digital's are a compromise. Do they handle as easily as the 1dx you mentioned? Hell no. Do they go to what you'd call high iso? Hell no. But they are brilliant at what they do regardless. Your half way is a leica S2... still a compromise in many ways, just not its cost!

I think the 1dx in comparison to the competition is pretty brilliant, compromise or not. In an ideal world we'd all have multiple different cameras for different things (being able to afford them too) to rid at least 90% of the compromise.

EOS Bodies / Re: What will a mirror less camera offer
« on: June 25, 2012, 12:21:24 AM »
Go and look up the new olympus om-d em-5 camera. Its a tiny four thirds sensor, but it sounds like a decent camera.

Now think that canon will likely put a much larger sensor in theirs, like the G1X. Hopefully it has interchangeable lenses and makes a stand against those like those I just mentioned and the nikon 1.

Who would it appeal to? Those traveling for starters. *points to those who believe DSLR's are too big/heavy*. Other than that, I don't know...

Am I interested in one? Doubt it.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon's Mirrorless Entry
« on: June 22, 2012, 10:58:43 PM »
Well I thought the new Olympus om-d em5 was actually pretty interesting. If canon comes out with one which rivals it, with a much bigger sensor as the oly is a tiny four thirds, it could be a big win. Wether I'd be interested in one or not is a completely different matter though.

Fuji Velvia was mentioned somewhere in this thread. :p

I guess I'd want to ask how many still shoot film and or how did you cope with only film. I coped just fine. *shrugs*

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 14-24 f/2.8L [CR2]
« on: June 16, 2012, 05:57:43 AM »
I thought the nikonians had been paying about $2500 for their 14-24 anyway. I'd personally expect at least that from canon, and if its actually turns out to be better, it may well be something around $3000.

Still half exciting though.

EOS Bodies / Re: should i wait for 70D? when will it be here by?
« on: June 16, 2012, 01:06:05 AM »
You are aware this site is called canon RUMORS yes?

70D... hmmm... let me think about this for 0.1 seconds. It doesn't exist, it may actually not ever exist. Sure canon will likely bring something new to the market by christmas (but wait, that could be next year for all we know), but does one want to wait that long? I wouldn't, I'd go insane.

Im glad I jumped ship and have a 7D and not waiting on nikon's replacement for the d300s! -  Waiting?... .... Still waiting... 

Its not worth it, just get something.

One example being is if I need to switch my speed of film, I simply change my camera's settings (ISO) and not have to switch out a entire roll of film. Not to mention, on a 16GB card I can store 800 photos!!! Come on... I mean really. Your average person carried only a few rolls and they contained what? 24? 36? shots per roll?  ::) (Let's see... math... 800 divided by 24 {average shots per roll} is 33 rolls!!!) Oh, and I can swap memory cards in like 5 seconds if by chance I run out of room shooting in a morning and they can STILL fit in my front pocket. :)

Yup, totally agree with that as much as I'd defend film where I can.

I've shot well over 2400 shots in day shooting sports and stuff before (haven't done it since though). But how many rolls of film would that be? Oh, lets say at bare minimums at least $1300 worth!!!!! Not a chance in hell I could have afforded to do that.

I was taught on film, before any other options were available. But will only shoot medium format film now, and no I don't shoot much of it. Darkroom access is also getting harder to come by.

Well ok, now that there's some photo's up, yes I can see it. I think that's pretty nice though in general. I personally would not classify it as nervous bokeh, to me that bokeh is quite beautiful.

The bokeh is only one reason I think I want one, now that I've looked its also cheaper than the 35mm L canon so that's another plus. I don't know, different people, different things. That bokeh to me is nice. Plus the shots I took were also pretty razor sharp too, another even more critical area to me.

LOL. I don't care what the reason is, this is positive news to me.

I tried a 35mm f2 zeiss recently at a digital expo. I have to get one now after putting the files into lightroom to have a decent look. I don't do video but the out of focus areas are so silky smooth, even on my 1.6x crop 7D. I don't 'need' af all the time, so it would be perfect. And as mentioned above, the focus ring is amazing to use. However its the optic I care about more.

Wish the f1.4 version wasn't massively more expensive!

A Vari Angle screen?

You mean a 'break me off' screen? I think that can stay off the more pro bodies, for I know there would be breakages.
