EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Conversion to Nikon
« on: November 14, 2012, 04:50:42 PM »
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.   :)

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.  ;)

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.  ;)

Actually, Nikon can start (re)naming their cameras as DXO4, DXO800 etc.
LOL! That's a good one.

Ironically, Nikon's DX are trouncing Canon's flagship 1DX in DXO. My head hurts.

The only thing.

Heh, you ever keep track of how many new users join just to troll?  Just look at Coke & Pepsi, who's always bashing who there?  If you're number one your always in the hot seat.  ;)

at 500 px even my old casio looks good.  ;)

it´s not that it´s not good enough.. it´s normal to want the BEST for your money.

so you see what you pay and you see the DXO score.... and then you look at nikon.

of course the DXO score does not tell you about the whole camera... just the sensor.

You're preachin to the choir here... but some people don't want to listen.

Forget the scores.

I shot all of these college football photos at ISO 8,000, f/2.8, 1/1,250 sec on my 1DX.

High school stadiums are usually much worse. The night shots in this gallery were at ISO 16,000, 1/640-1/800 sec, f/2.8.

Sorry about the compression but our website is a little behind the times. Anyway I love the 1DX and everything it does. I don't touch the 1D MK IV anymore but still keep my 5D MK II for wide angles below ISO 3,200.

Lol, how can we forget the scores when that seems to be the only thing that matters?  Nice shots, what lens were you using?

I'm sure the people at Nikonrumors are saying DXO is the greatest and most accurate tests ever.

If the tables were turned and the 1DX was the camera scoring a 95 instead of the D800, people at Canonrumors would revere DXO.

No one likes to be on the losing end, and if anything, this should be a wake up to Canon to step their game up since Sony sensors are kicking their Butt, on both the stills and the video end. Since I'm more on the video end, not sure if you guys heard about the new Sony F5, close in price to the Canon C300, but about 5x the camera. The C300 is not even remotely in the same league.

The story line has been repeating over and over this year, Canon needs to step up on all fronts. Fortunately, they can ride on their name for a while, but soon, people will expect results.

It's true...in regards to sensors.  I wonder if the Nikon camp complains about AF & ISO or FPS?  Canon will eventually have better sensors, and Nikon will eventually have better AF.  So really, depending on what your priorities are, is there really a bad choice?  No.  In the real world I would sooner have not missed a shot and have it in-focus rather than more DR.

a little "real" life use...

Exactly.  So would you want a camera that has better DR, or one that has better AF, ISO & FPS?  We're talking real life use here.  I personally would take the latter.  All the DR in the world isn't going to matter if you miss the pic or it's OOF.   ;)

Any chance the IS version is actually an f4L lens?

I'd prefer IS with a 2.8 rather than with a F4.

I have to admit the Retina screen on my Macbook Pro 15" is incredible.

I think there's a trade off for everything.  For example take records & CD's.  Those old analog records sounded great and when CD's first entered the scene I thought they sounded crappy.  As time went on and as tech progressed, CD's sounded better.  In regards to film & digital, it's kind of the same thing.  Digital was very convenient at first as you didn't have to worry about taking bad pics, you just deleted them.  You didn't have to run and get them developed after 24 exposures.  Digital is getting better and better all the time.
