EOS Bodies / popup-flash - made a "pro feature"?
« on: August 13, 2014, 09:45:00 AM »
We have all seen the discussions, about why popup-flash is left out on the pro bodies from Canon. Those in favour of leaving it out says it is because it can break, and it is not a "pro feature". Those in favour of a popup-flash on the other hand just say, if you dont like it, dont use it, but it is great for a fill-in, it has its place.


Now, lets say those against the popup-flash are right, and we all have to sell our equipment and find another hobby if Canon implements them in their pro bodies. ;D
What can Canon do to make the popup more attractive? Why dont they make a popup-flash into a "pro" popup? Any ideas? One thing I like with my wifes NEX-6 is that it can be directed upwards and be bounced. Is this something for Canon?

All ideas are welcome, what would make a popup/integrated flash a "pro" style flash?

EOS Bodies / Advatages of a hybrid viewfinder?
« on: April 05, 2014, 12:10:47 PM »
The rumored hybrid viewfinder Canon may be working on, what advantages will it bring? The reason I ask is because I was just reviewing the AF on my wife's nex-6 with face detection. Every time it nails focus on the eyes of the subject, something that is very difficult with my 550D. Can face detection be implemented with a hybrid VF? Are there other functions that will be available/possible with a hybrid VF? Focus peaking, live histogram?

EOS Bodies / Canon naming policy
« on: January 18, 2014, 07:52:28 AM »
I was just wondering if the new 7DII would get another name than 7D mark II, as I was trying to understand Canon naming policy.

We have the four digit cameras (1100D) which are really basic dSLRs. APS-C
Then there is the three digit cameras (600D), entry level cameras. APS-C
Two digit cameras (70D), enthusiast level cameras. APS-C
Single digit cameras (5D3). Entry level and professional level. Full Frame

Then we have the 7D. A more professional type camera, but not Full Frame. So, where does this fit in the naming scheme? Single digit cameras are all Full Frame! If the single digit is not for Full Frame, but for professional style cameras instead, where does the 6D then fit?

Either the 7D should have another name since single digit cameras are all Full Frame, or the 6D should have another name since it is more of an an entry level/buget camera.

Thei naming sceme may have started out well, but it is getting a bit confusing at the top now.

Yes, it is weekend, and yes, I have too much time to spend on nonsense today :)

EOS Bodies / Where are Canons innovation?
« on: January 09, 2014, 02:37:46 AM »
I was just wondering about where Canons innovation has gone? Sure, they put a touch screen on a dslr, but that is not really innovative. We´ve had this on smart phones for a long time (yes, they are caneras as well), but that is about it. WiFi? They have offered WiFi for a long time as well, but as an add on feature. Integrating it is more of an evolution, the same as with the touch screen.

The reason I ask this question, "where are the innovation" is because I recently bought my wife a Sony NEX-6, anf my poor 550D looked really really ancient next to it!! Dont get me wrong, I do enjoy shooting my canon, and I have solid lenses, but it really was a huge gap between the Canon and the Sony.

I do think that Canon produces very good, solid performing cameras, no doubt. The 5D3 and the 1DX really dont have true competition. They are not the best at everything, but as a whole, perhaps the best tools avaliable for the professionals. However, I´m not a professional, though quite enthustiastic :)
Where is Canons equivalent to the Sony A7/R or the Nikon DF? Where is the downloadable apps for the Camera, motion sensors etc.? The EOS M? Never tried it, but from what I understand, a good, solid performer (after the FW update), but not very innovative.

The thing is, the people at Canon are not stupid, I am sure they have all the technology in the world to make super innovative cameras (yes, even fix the DR-problem that really isn´t a problem), but why dont they show us, or just give us some hints? Where are Canon at the CES?

I am not the type that want the latest and greatest technology at the moment it is released. But, I am gonna upgrade my equipment in a couple of years. Hopefully I can stick to Canon and not feel I´m buying an old relic.

EOS Bodies / Any news on the SL1 sensor?
« on: May 05, 2013, 03:42:53 AM »
The rumors says the 70D and the SL1 are going to have the same sensor, I´m quite interested in how the sensor performs. The SL1 is already out there, but I have yet to find any sensor/camera reviews testing for high ISO, DR etc.
Anyone knows?

Canon 6D vs Nikon D600

Quite interesting comparison. The high ISO performance of the 6D is fantastic!

On the gallery section, is it an idea to have a 1DX gallery, like there are a 5d3 gallery?

Technical Support / Any experts on printing?
« on: July 06, 2012, 03:02:02 AM »
Hi there!

I have a Canon MG8150 printer (about 10 months old now), and so far it has done very well as our all-round workhorse. Document printing and photos. A few days ago I bought a nw set of ink and some photo paper (Canon Photo Paper Pro II PR-201) but it keeps printing with error. Clipped parts of the image (all white) is filled partially with black. I have tried all sort of ICC-profiles, and Canon support said the PR-201 used the same profile as their Platinum Pro paper. Well, all combinations of different ICC-profiles gives the same problem. Color management is set to the software (have tried in printer as well, but the problem remains)

I print from Aperture 3, all updated. I have used this paper before, and never had this issue, and the ink is Canon original.


Anyone that can help me with this issue?

I have two examples (not brilliant photos, but they work as examples), the first is an export from Aperture, the second is a scan from a print where I´ve marked some of the faulty areas..
