Third Party Manufacturers / Re: rumor: D600 gets 16 Bit processing
« on: August 31, 2012, 07:34:22 AM »
But why is that?

Because in a world with a perfectly linear sensor response one stop more light means twice as many photons on the sensor and electrons in the well, thus one more binary digit to represent that doubling. That assumes no other interference, like noise in the lower digits caused by the readout electronics.
Once you apply a gamma curve the whole relation vanishes and any number of bits can represent arbitrary dynamic range, although at the cost of tonality - you may experience banding.

Thank you!
I learn something every day :)

Just curious, I see some makes 1EV DR the same as 1bit, meanin 14bit processing gives a maximum of 14EV DR. But why is that?

So, this is the 5dMKIII competitor, not the D800. If the rumor about the price, $1500 is correct, then it is a 5DMKIII at half the price. Canon should be afraid.

I do agree with you to som degree about useless functions, but this function is very usefull and should be avaliable on a pro camera without the need of accessories. I use a 550D, and this function is great for group photos. (I even have Auto ISO in M - mode).

I have never used the 5D3 (nor the 5D2), I´m gonna upgrade my 550D in a year or so, spending my cash on lenses first and foremost, but it is surprising that my little consumer camera has basic functionallity these pro bodies does not have.

(Perhaps a low blow, but it is worth mentioning, Canon is also selling themself as a environmentally friendly company, and having to buy hardware to get basic, software functions is everything but. That is just being cynical )

A pro body should have all the functionality of the consumer bodies, and then some. Not leave functionality out because it is not "pro enough" (unless it is a more pro alternative). We have to pay pro prices, they should put functionality in, not take it out. This is BS Canon!!

This is an amazing lens!

Here are a few photos taken using this gem. Not perfect photos, but I do think they illustrate some of the qualities this lens have. The colour rendition is amazing!

I use lens hood for protection, UV filter has no place in my bag. Polarizer and ND, yes, UV, no.

Thank you for your reply!
The last two of yours are very very good! Where the last one should be in a frame on the wall! Very pretty!

The first one from me was taken at a small island called Bomlo, at the west coast of Norway, last summer. I used a tripod (the second picture is taken hand held) and a remote shutter. What isn´t shown in the picture is the monumental amount of mosquitos around! A peacefull shot, taken in the middle of a mosquito frenzy! I was bitten to pieces, but it was worth it!  :D

The wounds have healed, and in two weeks, I´ll be back at the same place for vacation!

Landscape / Re: Beautiful sunsets

Thank you for a quick reply! :)
The last picture is very purple, I agree. It is an old picture, taken in jpeg for some reason. I do have other pictures from the same place, approx. at the same time (last year), and they were just as purple. A bit more contrasty though. I do agree with you though, it is perhaps a tad too purple.
It often gets quite foggy out there, and that gives the sunsets a very intense color.


Here is a more recent picture from the same place, taken june this year. All I have done is to add some clarity, a bit of NR, and some sharpness. No Color correction, and this is pretty much similar to what it looked like in real life.
