EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Canon 5D Mark II vs Nikon D600
« on: September 07, 2012, 02:02:37 AM »
I would like to see D600 vs 6D(maybe).  I believe Canon's new entry level FF will have similar specs with D600.  Hopefully the price of new entry FF camera will be also about 1500.

looool .....the price certainly will NOT be $1500. I believe somewere between $1990 and $2499.

There have been a lot of talk about the D600 being priced at around $1500, and I don't see why not?
If Canon had announced the D800, I most certainly believe it would be priced at around $4500.
If not $1500, I think D600 will have a price tag of $1999 at max!

The next camera will be a smaller full frame camera, when is still the question.

So that's not even a [CR] but a fact? I guess Canon will wait for the Nikon 600d or the 5d3 sales stalling, which might be a while. And if there's no new crop camera on the horizon that confirms that Canon cannot do any better sensor-wise than the current 18mp model, or only boost the mp with massive dr/iso tradeoffs.

I couldn't have agreed more.

Here's an excellent read to answer all your questions & more!

http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials/digital-photo-enlargement.htm#

The article was excellent (I saved it, BTW), but I don't think it really addresses his question.

Well, yeah maybe not directly but, the calculator near to the end of the article should definitely prove useful and the concept of blowing up the images in post-production might save the original poster from taking 10-20-30-whatever photos and stitching 'em together.

Come on guys, he says she's not that into photography, already has the 18-55mm. and you're recommending the 50mm. prime and the 40mm. pancake...

A brand new EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 IS II costs $199 at amazon.com and it will definitely broaden her options.
Considering the fact that beginners tend to be attached to teles more, she might even get deeper into photography.

I they could, I'm sure they would...

Everyone goes on about the D800 - excluding mps it is barely to the 2007 1Ds3 standard as an all-round camera


You made my day!

Resolution and DR have direct impact on IQ and yet you compare D800 with 1Ds Mark III.



Even my 2004 1Ds2 is still churning out impressive pictures at 16x12.


My 2001 Fiat Coupé still runs very smooth, you think I should compare it to a 2012 Mercedes-Benz?

Ok. more megapixels. That was always going to happen.

But will the sensor be any better?
Will it still have vertical banding up the wazoo in dark areas?
Will the read noise be the same?
Will the dynamic response be about the same?

What was so good about the D800 wasn't just the increase in number of pixels but the quality of those pixels.

It's obvious isn't it? Respectively; no, yes, yes, yes.

And don't forget about how ridiculously Canon will price it...

EOS Bodies / Re: Another Spec List for the Entry Level Full Frame EOS
« on: August 02, 2012, 06:11:43 AM »
I think that Canon is sending/would send quiet clear message:
  • Want good high ISO, FF, good AF, partially sealed body for 2000 USD ? - get entry FF
  • Want speed (fps), reach, good AF and ws body ? - get 7D (7D Mk II in future)
  • Want top AF, good high ISO and decent speed ? - get 5D Mk III
  • Want good high ISO, good AF, high fps ? - get entry FF and 7D (7D Mk II in future)
  • Want top AF, best ISO, best sealing, fastest body - all in one ? - get 1D-X

Let me add one thing you're missing :

  • Want high-res & high DR ? - suffer and die

imo, we do not need high megapixel like nikon d800, it is only good for people who takes pictures, crops them later...

This forum's getting more fun and fun everyday!

Exactly the camera I'm waiting for.

Same me! If it's 5d2 with a new sensor and 7d's AF, I'm in!

Comparing the image quality of RAW files from 5D Mark II and 5D Mark III, "new sensor" means pretty much nothing! Basicly you're in for 4 year ago's image quality with 3 year ago's AF.

I'm sick and tired of Canon playing mix & match with yesterday's tech!
How is it possible to have the newest tech and low price at the same time???

+1

Exaclty as I stated in my longer post on page 1  :)

Is this question for real?

A simple example would be the iPhone/iPad!  Every generation is clearly superior over the previous yet the pricing stays the same! That's how!

If we're going to pay more each year for better tech, well, I guess a camera will cost $50.000 in 2020!

Not a huge difference, though real world frames seem to say otherwise in some reviews. The main difference I can see here is the moire, where the D800 fails miserably. Personally, losing that bit of sharpness for less moire probably cancels out the difference. That and I don't have to invest in new lenses.

Thank you. That gave me a good laugh...

Just compare the lines at the left of the frame and the sharpness of the numbers all over the frame...
