Love natural light pictures especially when coupled large aperture. I find though that the top picture could be a little more in focus.

Thats what art is ... One mans perfection is another mans crap. I really find this picture unappealing and cant see myself taking a picture with these conditions. But the OP says it came out the way he intended. Ever heard fashion designers say ugly is the new beautiful?

Dont agree with this!

The 1D series has better sealing but the MkIII and the 7D are not that backward either, Certainly not Dead!

Because its basically almost  indistinguishable.

Canon General / Re: "Time for a Change at Canon?" -Barons
« on: July 25, 2012, 09:27:31 PM »
To bring Canon back to the top this is what they have to do in the next couple of years.
  • Place less reliance on point and shoot (phones will dominate that space.
    Less reliance on Japanese Manufacturing and labour costs.
  • Develop new sensor technologies very aggressively or outsource them - this is big for their DLSR line that is running out of steam.
  • Improve customer satisfaction - especially the professional space, alot of people have been pissed off at them in the past year. They need to fix this.
  • Develop alternate products. Maybe think about a couple of hybrid products. Maybe even develop technologies that could be sold in other branded phones. Cameras in phones suck big time.

Yes I have added a bit of Vignetting in LR. And the images are a bit saturated, to appeal to the kids parents. There was some overcasting. Images taken with the wider angle lens show the grass too over-saturated - not sure why. I think i need to tone it down a bit. Thanks for your comments.

Lenses / Re: Must-have lenses for Canon 5D Mark III
« on: July 25, 2012, 05:24:21 PM »
Those three lenses were the first on my acquisition list. Except i went for the 1.2F 50mm. The one you wont regret is the 70-200 II. I got the 24-105 in kit. I have not yet regretted this move. The 24-105 stays on the cam most of the time. Not the best for low light. This doesnt feel as though there is any overlap with the 70-200. I do miss the lack of shallow DOF. But i still think this is the better more versatile option, not to mention cheaper. You have to question your needs and application. In how many situations you will feel your self needing the F2.8 ? If i really want to shoot in low light i use the 50mm. The other issue is that the 24-105 has more distortion than the 24-70. Not that it couldnt be corrected.

EOS Bodies / Re: How much will the 5d3 cost at the end of 2012?
« on: July 02, 2012, 08:05:16 PM »
The only thing about waiting is that I feel that Canon is hard at work to bridge the gap with Nikon (Read DR etc). All the current models will get quicker updates than normal, including the 1Dx which i suspect is still using old sensor tech. Canon cannot afford the hemorrhage of photographers who will switch to Nikon and and all those new ones who are buying Nikon for the first time and not Canon. Canons Sensor tech is their Achilles heel and they have to fix and implement this fast. However in the mean time the 5d3, 1Dx and rebel will sell as fast as they could make them, although it may not last into next year. I wouldnt touch anything Canon with an APSC sensor though, for pro work. Although the 60D with ML looks good for video at current discounts.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Non Genuine LP-E6
« on: June 30, 2012, 08:07:46 PM »
I have bought two Photive and a Maxtech from Amazon both less than 15$. I have never been able to tell them apart from the Canon batteries. The OEMs are rated slightly more current than the canon, i havent tested but they seem to last just a long at least. The photive sometimes read an incorrect battery reading esp when FULL. But it will read correct most times. I havent seen this problem with the maxtech.

EOS Bodies / Re: The 7D for half price
« on: June 30, 2012, 06:41:37 PM »
I think that the only similarity between these two bodies in all honnesty is that they have the same sensor. Thats a real plus for the Rebel and a real shame for the 7D, and that speaks volumes.

Interesting article on New York Times

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/28/technology/personaltech/a-pocket-camera-even-pro-photographers-can-love-state-of-the-art.html?partner=rssnyt&emc=rss#comments

"If you want to know what “huge sensor” and “big aperture” mean in the real world, stop reading and savor my annotated slide show of sample photos"

Do you agree with this guy, the Sony RX100 can be a second camera for a pro? Under what circumstances?
I have read a few of this guys articles, he's not doesnt appear to be the serious photographic type, more an enthusiasts. I notices he closed off comments after two days of his articles. I looked at the galleries - i dont see any examples of low light shots or pleasing bokeh. "Rivaling the pros" So what do you say gimmick or serious camera? And for $650? I say gimmick.

Sure, the same main board with dual digic processors, the same shutter, the same controls.  Someone is playing games here.

Not to mention the 7D destruction test that that Chinese guy with the english accent did on DIGITAL REV .... I would pay money to see the hard plastic Rebel go thru the same.

The price of your camera does not make you a pro the camera is a tool its whats in your mind that makes that tool a Pro !!

This has to be the funniest post i have clicked on in a long time. Sorry... But where exactly you say you friend is working. It brings back to mind the guy in the trench coat from Sesame Street, " Hey bud.... Wanna buy .... Shhhh ....some air..."
