Canon General / Re: good idea
« on: September 27, 2013, 11:00:22 PM »
If it makes cleaning a sensor easier and safer then it could be a feature.  I doubt anyone would build a camera where the intent was to add a better sensor later - but then it might be the same thing as a standard CPU socket and your choice of chip.  Hmm.


You know many times I've thought about buying a digic 5+ and putting into an older 1D and seeing the frame rates skyrocket! Id love to modify or upgrade the camera vs buying new ones all the time, buy a new rear LCD review screen with more dots. I love modding things and hate that I don't know a way to mod my camera

Cute photos! My cat too tests my cameras durability as a result of having a camera strap attached. But yes the eos m I own is very durable. I have left my M in my backpack and dropped and bumped my bag into many things all without damage to the camera mind you it's not a padded bag.

Lenses / Re: 85L or 135L?

I usually don't like to butt into arguments but here you are the one not trying to think/look outside your shell. Looks like you have never shot super active toddlers. So I don't expect you to understand what we are talking about.   

I never said anything about toddlers. You are changing the topic. You and Neuro objected my remark that the 85L can be useful for things that move. You presented the toddlers example as a counter-example. Now you are trying to involve me in a discussion how to shoot toddlers (sounds a bit creepy) which is irrelevant.

Glad the 85 focused on a big slow bus and a guy playing keyboard, I'm sure the 135 would have nailed focus before the bus made it round the corner and held focus. And the keyboard guy might as well have been posing since the keyboard is stationary haha. Anyhoo 85 slower than 135.

I hate my iPhone 5, the 5s should have been the iPhone 5 no doubt. So now I will wait for the 6. Damn you apple! But thanks for sharing the specs on the camera on the 5s looks like a decent step forward for apple. Finally starting to show me what I expected from apple.

I bought a 135mm f2.0 on a whim cause the price was right and it was basically new. I was so unsure about this lens at first as I figured the 85L would be much nicer but I couldn't be happier! It even worked great for me at an auto show! I'm in love with it!

Canon General / Re: Is it Genuine? Canon LP-E6 Battery [SOLVED]
« on: September 09, 2013, 09:36:23 PM »
Funny I just came across this post and story after I bought what I thought was a genuine BG-E6 grip on eBay. After reading all this I know it's a knockoff. Hopefully it doesn't kill my camera and works as good as the aftermarkets and or actual canon one. Shucks

Third Party Manufacturers / Sony's new little cameras

These look interesting. Looks like mirrorless/ point and shoot went a new direction!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Your opinion on backup camera
« on: September 03, 2013, 07:27:12 AM »
I assumed the prices on 7d's would go up after the 7d II was released just like the prices on 24-70 2.8 went up. I used to be able to find 24-70s on CL for 8-900$ before the II came out, now they're 12-1500$. Id like to have a second camera suited for faster moving things, birds, cars, kids, pets. The 5d2 is better for posed stuff. I love my 1D classic but 4 megapixels is kinda silly these days it honestly works great at car shows and truthfully focuses better than my 5d2 in lowlight. I love a 1d sizes and feel. The weight of a 1d doesn't bother me. I suppose I could keep waiting for a 7d2 to see if its anything since I'm not in need of a camera right now and the latest and greatest isnt my thing mainly because I can't afford it.  ;D

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Your opinion on backup camera
« on: September 03, 2013, 12:27:46 AM »
Hello all, I've been thinking about getting a second camera, I'm wondering what to get. So far I've been thinking about a 7D or a 1D3. I've used the 7d and liked it but full frame is just so nice and crop feels funny but sharing batteries with the 5d2 would be nice. I have a 13 year old canon 1d with the 1.3 sensor and it feels pretty good. I choose these cameras based on their used price of around 1000$ or would it be better to wait and get something newer?

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Magic Lantern insecurities...

Magic lantern drains my batteries when the camera is off, that's kind of annoying to pick up my camera the next morning and having a dead battery.

Buy a broken full frame camera, or put it in a old film camera!

EOS-M / Re: Some EOS M Information [CR1]
« on: August 20, 2013, 08:01:40 PM »
I think if Canon put the 70D sensor into the next EOS M camera (a quite obvious move, wouldn't it?) that could quickly turn the M system from the being the EVIL system with the worst AF speed (although the recent firmware upgrade seems to have mitigated that issue at least to some degree...) to becoming market leader - in particular for tracking moving objects, where a purely contrast-detection based AF system has a serious conceptual disadvantage.
If they get this to market, I might seriously consider adding an EOS M2 (or whatever the call it) as a backup body to my 7D.

Yea the EOS-M is a terrible camera especially at autofocus, its a wonder they even added that option!  ::) For 300$ its great! It keeps up with my kitten or maybe I'm talented! Sure it's not 1D fast but um it's so much smaller lighter and way cheaper! Way better than point and shoots I've used and still better than my iPhone. I know everyone wants a 1Dx that costs less than a grand that's the size of the M but wow get real! Sure there's lots of mirror less cameras out there but EOS-M sure ain't that bad.

Lenses / Re: Lens Rental Recommendation
« on: August 19, 2013, 11:47:59 PM »
Rent the EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8.  Try pics with and without the flash (with is ok if there are relatively low white ceilings for bouncing).

Agreed +1

I just got a 135mm f2 on Sunday(yesterday) and my use with it has been limited but the shots I took at f2 were awesome! It's really a great lens!

Lenses / Re: Conversation with pro re: 50L vs. 50 f/1.4
« on: August 18, 2013, 05:18:12 PM »
You have the 50 1.4 so why buy a 1.2? Spend the money that youd spend on the 1.2 on something different. I have the 1.2 and I life mine! I had an old metal mount 1.8 and while I liked that lens I dreaded the pentagon bokeh that would occasionally show up. Now I have the 1.2 and no more ugly bokeh.
