EOS Bodies / Re: What will be the issue with the 6D
« on: December 03, 2012, 08:40:57 PM »
I have a feeling the 6D wont need any method to select a focus point other than center. focus/recompose is probably the name of the 6D game

Im using all focus points of my 1100D. I think you are exaggerating the situation a lot.

yes I too am sure he is exaggerating, however, my experience is that the more focusing points the camera has, the more useless (prone to error) is the 'green square' focus mode.

Reviews / Re: Review - Canon EF 100 f/2.8L IS Macro

Anybody here owning 100L and 135L?
Comparison of my copies make clear winner 135 @ F2.8. Do you have any opposite experience?
Does your 100L have IS?

"As for hybrid IS, Its really only useful at 1:1 or near 1:1 focusing distances. Perfect for macro lenses"

Thank you for educating me on that feature.

That is a very poorly worded comment.

What it should have said is,

"Hybrid is every bit as useful as conventional IS in a myriad of circumstances, possibly even slightly better,  but additionally it is useful at 1:1 or near 1:1 focusing distances, where conventional IS loses about half to 3/4 of its effectiveness".

That's better.

This thread is either blatant trolling -- in which case just go away -- or the subtle humour I detect within indicates the threadstarter is actually listing known Nikon problems.  ;)  In which case he should have included the option 'It's not a Nikon' which would have got my tongue-in-cheek vote.

A related topic, is there any moderation of the canonrumors forum? There is so much anti-canon stuff that is allowed to proliferate and seems mainly aimed at making canon owners think they make poor decisions and should be filled with regret. Instead, this forum could be a pleasant haven for Canon users where people share, solve and support one another. All it would take is some decent moderation of the anti-Canon crap from either bitter people or blatant trolls.

@iso79

Absolutely correct observation.

Never even been near a shutter release: http://lorettasteyn.blogspot.com/


dear oh me, I can see your problem. The sooner you change to Nikon the better.

Lenses / Re: do image stabilisers decrease image quality?
« on: November 07, 2012, 05:49:27 PM »
Yes they do decrease IQ. If you don't believe me start shooting with yours turned off when you are doing hand held shooting and see how much your pictures improve.

That's not what the OP is asking. He is asking about a lens with no IS vs a lens with IS.

The most sensible way to discuss is to compare say Canon lenses where the same optical model is available (at the same time) with or without IS.

Canon probably publish MTF curves for both models and this might be a good starting point.

Canon General / Re: Canon's MAP Pricing Goes Into Full Effect Today
« on: November 03, 2012, 06:24:59 AM »

If the price is set and fixed it is not (by definition) competitive.....It's your money, it's up to you. Personally I don't like to be controlled or manipulated.


I agree. Like I posted in the other Canon MAP thread, I don't think it's even legal where I live (in Australia):

They are doing it to you because they can! They can't do it here because we have laws that protect consumers from that sort of asymmetrical abuse of power.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS M or ...???
« on: October 29, 2012, 09:16:34 PM »
G15!!  :) :D ;D

These cameras are just fantastic.

They also offer great opportunities for the happy snapper to grow as a photographer and learn to exercise more control of the shot.

I would only suggest a larger sensor camera if she has definitely shown dissatisfaction with the noise at high iso in a similar size camera -- even then, if her current camera a few years old, recent model cameras do a better job.

With my wife, she loved the handling of a Nikon P500 superzoom but hated the image quality, so I stepped her up to a Panasonic G3 micro four thirds. Now she hates the lens swapping!  ::)  She likes a bit of reach so the G15 or G1x are out, so my only thought is a 14-140 lens for the G3. Which is expensive.

So, maybe get clear feedback on what she wants (explaining there ARe compromises such as size, weight, interchanging lenses etc)

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Considering switching to Nikon
« on: October 28, 2012, 02:20:06 PM »
...Basically, this whole thing is just trying to let some of you see that there are reasons to switch.  The world is not black & white.  There are many people in all sorts of different situations and with different needs and in different financial circumstances.  It's not as easy as "X reviews better than Y!"... there are more variables...

So..........
There are reasons to switch and reasons to stay,
So make a choice and go away.

tadaaaaaa!

Seriously, guys.

The fact is I added perspective and context to your post. I guess you missed that minor detail.  ;D

As someone that thought this very same thing and did something about it (sold all my Canon gear and bought a D600) I can shed some light my view:...

How many posts are on the internet by people defending their expensive purchases? It doesn't bear thinking about...

...As for the argument (made above someplace) that nobody prints more the 7 (or whatever) stops of DR, tell me which file will make a better print: 1) one with very clean, detailed, noise and band free shadows and correctly exposed highlights or 2) one with muddy, noisey/pixilated and banded shadows and correctly exposed highlights? ...

Neither - because of the highlighted part of your post above.

Storm, meet teacup.

PS do you really own a D800e, 5D2 and 5D3? Impressive.... I think.
