Hey guys,

First, thanks.  It wasn't easy in there.  Those lights are horrible!  I was ISO 3200-5000 all day, at f/2.8 and 1/500s. 

The lens was simply the 70-200 f/2.8L II IS lens.  I had to stay around the court mostly, so I chose that lens vs. a prime.  3rd set I said screw it (thank you Big Ten Network) and went in the stands anyways, and shot down on the net.  Unfortunately MSU won 3-0, so there weren't many more opportunities for action photos. 

This Friday October 4th, I'll be shooting the All-Ohio cross country championships, Saturday "Big Red Day" at Denison football, and the 12th MSU at Ohio State women's soccer.  Lots of travel!

Thanks, great shots to all in this thread!  Some of them are just profound!

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.

You're confusing then, I'm afraid, loss of detail, and grain/noise.  2500 photos I'd edit with just a 30-40% NR setting in LR and it should look find, maybe bring the exposure up a bit.  But when you crop so much you lose detail, and that's what you're doing.

I'm back! What did I miss?  :D

You missed point #81:  When bdunbar79 does another "that lens was geared more towards video" analysis.

Lenses / Re: Patent: Canon EF 50 f/1.8 IS

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.

Would you have paid the money Canon would have charged for a 24-70 f/2.8 IS lens?  Didn't think so.

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.

Reasoning?  Because 1.  We're talking about a 5D-series body, and 2.  Do you even have any idea how difficult and probably unfeasible it would be to improve the 5D3's high ISO capabilities, by two stops?  Certainly not soon.

It's a great wish list sure, but it sounds like, I want to the 1Dx features in a lower end cam body wish list.  Maybe, who knows?
