EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D III - Camera of the year 2012

Agreed, the 5D3 won because it is a better all round camera.  I'm not surprised this thread is fairly quiet.  ;)

For me the 1D X is the camera of the year 2012.

+1....I'm not a 1D X owner yet, but I did have a chance to hold and shoot with it through a friend. I love EVERYTHING about 1D X - low light shooting, the grip, size, frame rate, AF system, how the camera feel in the hands etc..I can go on for days here. I think the main reason 1D X didn't get to be "camera of the year" is the price tag - this is NOT an ave Joe camera.

Assuming I'll get one tomorrow, am not sure how to justify 1D X purchase to the "boss" at home yet. About "honey, I accidently bought a 1D X instead of 5D III and the camera store will not allow me to return it" ::) ??? ::) ??? ??? ???

Lol good luck with that one.  Let me know if it works and maybe I'll use it.  ;)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D Mark III Frustrated Focusing problem

F/4 sounds like the solution to me.

Depending on how close they are and what lens they are using.  ;)

For some people it might be easier to point the blame on the camera rather than admitting they are new and need help.  Realistically though a person would think that someone with a top-end camera would know a certain amount of technique, but as stated before that's not always the case.  The same goes for the example of a person getting a Ferrari as a first car, it shouldn't be a starter for learning how to drive.  There's no rule that says a person can't have the best or whatever they can afford, but we always don't like to hear the advice so nothing is asked.   ;)

Yes good review.  Now just waiting for the 14-24 2.8 to show up (then I can trade it for the 16-35).  ;)

IMO if a person really needs the lens they will just go out and buy it.  No one has a crystal ball to predict price drops.  Really, how much of a price drop does it take for someone to buy?  100 dollars, 200 dollars?  For the amount of time waiting you could of been out there taking pictures and enjoying the lens.   So a person waits 6 months or longer to save $200, your time with that lens is worth a hell of a lot more.  Look at the 70-200 2.8 II, it's price still stays fairly high.

For one thing the title is very misleading.  If a Nikon P&S is going to make a person give up their 1DX for it then there's something seriously wrong here, lol.  It would be different if the person stated the camera was a bit much for them and decided to go with a P&S.

if Canon wont release the proper firmware, might as well wait for an upgrade from Magic Lantern  :P

I don't think it's a matter of won't, it would be more like can't or isn't possible.  Canon will release it if it can be done.

I'm not much impressed by all the doom and gloom some people talk about Canon on this site. My view is if they really think what they say on here they would be best going out and using what ever it is they think is so fantastic. It would be a lot less stresfull for them.

Having said that I will soon be a Nikon user. My 1Dx is such a great camera it has taken a picture that won me first prize in a national competition, well its in a national paper anyway  :), and the first prize is a Nikon.

Well I'll be happily getting the best I can out of that camera now, accepting it for what it is and enjoying my hobby.

What can you do, haters will always hate.  Btw which Nikon did you get?  Personally if I were you I'd keep the 1DX unless it was a top-of-the-line Nikon (even then I'd keep it ;)), but that's your decision to make.  Just remember it's the person behind the camera.   :)

Heh ya, a person can't really make a claim like that without showing the goods.  ;)

EOS Bodies / Re: Plan to get a 5D3 for $1
« on: November 14, 2012, 02:38:27 PM »
Well you'd have to run the raffle for 3500 weeks (to be fair) and make sure everyone stays in it.  That way everyone would get a 5dIII.  ;)

EOS Bodies / Re: Official DXOMark Sensor Score for the EOS-1D X

At that time we'll be doing eye transplants.
These are already available )))
Sensor with special adaptor to connect this sensor to nurve stem.
This allowed to restore vision to totaly blind people
Also brain microchips implants are already availabe - being used to restore some lost brain functionlity.
Problem before was connection of non-organic chip to the organic tissue and provide purmanent electical contact to nurves and it was successfully resolved few years back.

So how has this been working out for the patient?

Our eyes are like D800 where we can (naturally) pull out a lot of shadow details instantly.

Maybe your visual system is like the D800.  Mine has far more than 13.2 stops of DR, my 'raw files' are transferred and processed much faster, and image noise is nonexistent.  OTOH, image playback loses some of the detail...

 :P

Damn, I knew I should of gotten CF card slots installed instead of those slower SD's.  ;)
