It is absurd to have to add a flash just to get a little fill flash or photo-trigger from time to time. At least Nikon is gracious enough to supply that.
I use a TS-E 24L II. The graciously-provided popup flash on the D800 interferes with full rotation of the PC-E 24mm. Granted, that's not going to be an issue for too many people, but personally, it would annoy me.yes but Nikon have also high iso and DR + megapixel
But is that helping them sell more dSLRs than Canon?
Funny story about the more MPs - I was out shooting yesterday with a couple of Nikon shooters. One was looking to upgrade her main wedding camera, and she said she called NPS and the recommended getting the D600 and not the D800 for shooting weddings. When even Nikon recommends not getting the D800.... The other Nikon shooter recommended picking up a used D700 instead of the D800.
spreading lays and myths-why?
we can take the cars examples again, Toyota are the best selling cars company, I do not drive Toyota and several with me who wants a better car
So you heavily cropped them and are surprised they are grainy?
Touche'. I was just surprised to see how much grain there is at 100%. People constantly RAVE about full frame being the king of low light... and I don't disagree... but I feel as though the rumors would have it be so much better.
noobs blaming their own errors on canon.. you have to love it.
i have shoot with a 550D in rain.. no problem.
what where you doing scuba diving?
I'm back! What did I miss?
Same thing for the 24-70 f/4 IS lens. Clearly aimed toward video more so than stills photographers.
f4? Seriously... wide max aperture is best for video, generally shutter would be at 1/50th, so the more flexible the lens can be the better as you effectively have one less paramater to play with.
Give me most of these and I'll consider:
1: Two (or more) stop improvement on ISO
2: 720p240 (I'd be ok with 1080p240 too)
3: 10fps+ (and naturally plenty of buffer, ~20+ would be nice)
4: Dual-CF slots with separate data channels for writing (so it could flush buffer to both cards, roughly doubling the speed it can empty the buffer)
5: Integrated grip (=1D style body (I know Canon don't want this, they want 1D to look the king))
Dude, I'm curious-are you serious or is this american sarcasm/irony?
I'm a Finnish guy, not American. And yes, I'm serious.
Tell me one of those that shouldn't be in 5D4? I know the #5 is out of reach for political reasons, but all others should be fine.
TWO stops improvement on ISO? What does that mean? At the high end? If that happens, then Canon will also have made flying cars and microwaves that serve you your dinner straight from the kitchen into the living room, where you are watching your $150 93-inch LED TV. None of those items you listed make any sense at all.
I'd be happy to hear your reasoning why none of those make no sense, because for me they do.
As for ISO, let's say 5D4 ISO25k looks as clean as 5D3 ISO6400. That's bit stretch, I agree, but I thought the idea of this thread was to make a wish list. The other points are really nothing special, don't you think?
Let's check (I'd be really happy to hear your counter-arguments, instead of just saying "make no SENSE!!!" without any words to back up)
#2: 720p240 is not that much really, pure data-wise it's only double compared to 1080p60, which is standard in any camcorder nowadays. Doubling data-speed is nothing in electronics, happens roughly every 3 years. And I'd take 720p240 any day instead of 1080p60, if I could choose, but of course different people have different needs.
#3: 10fps+ This is trivial, 1DX already goes 12/14 fps, so nothing new here.
#4: Saving to two cards is nothing special either, but it needs own controllers for both channels to maximize the speed. Basically same idea than RAID-0 in PC world.
#5: Again trivial, but this one doesn't happen for Canon line-up reasons, they don't want 1D-style bodies for 5D-series.
The IS has nothing to do with stills. Looks like another "video lens." Oh well, if it's better than all the current 50's, I'll get it.
IS also is very applicable for still photography.
A number of us have written that in our posts on this thread (pls read page 1).
While I've taken thousands of photos on tripods, I've taken hundreds of thousands of photos without a tripod, and believe me - in many situations using, bringing or even having a tripod (or monopod) just isn't practical (or allowed in some scenarios).
Many professional photographers use IS to get shots they otherwise couldn't have. I'm not a pro, (though plenty of my photographs have been sold) - and my photographic technique does at times benefit from IS.
Everyone seems to claim that Canon merged the 1D and 1Ds lines into the 1DX and killed the 1Ds line..
In all official stuff i've seen Canon has said that the 1DX is a combination of the speed of the 1D and full frame of the 1Ds.. hence the current 1D and 1Ds lines "merged". That does not mean that because the 1DX combines those good things from 1D IV & 1Ds III that there will not be a 1DXs.. (or whatever it is called)
I just wanted to make this clear.
I'm looking forward to working with both the 1DX and the 1DXs. The combo would kill any other camera brand.
