EOS-M / tamron 18 200 di iii vc SOS
« on: July 11, 2014, 03:33:22 PM »
Folks I need help

My tamron just arrived, it will focus it will use the vc function but the m will not take the picture. Using the buttpn will give the green frame but nothing happens. Using the touchscreen means the green frame will freeze and you have to take the battery out to clear the timeout.

Any ideas?

EOS 5D, 5DII or 5DIII but always with the 24-105 L and the Standard Canon Strap

The quality anchor for the APSC models was in my eyes always the 17-55 1:2.8.
With Canon being very carefull and Tamron having delivered their share maybe Sigma comes to the rescue?

The APS H sensor would not be dead if it would not be for the APS H mirror.
With 3 models (and none of them a real beginner camera) Canon cover full Frame from Amateur to Pro
On the APS C side they range from Generation IPhone to Pro but with an aging flagship. That is the ocean they have to put a fish in, not a niche for the pro. APS H was put forward to cover the high FPS niche where physical limitation of the time would have made FF akward (large mirror Swinging reducing potential max FPS). Why now in the age of mirrorless introduce again a compromise between sensor size and mirror movement? Especially if you have to explain to the upgrading APS C guys that they loose half of the APS C Advantage in reach for the Price of havingto use FF lenses in the future?

With EF, EFS and EFM it would take a lot of marketing to sell something which does not really fit the last two and is not really using the first one full.

Sometimes I believe Neuro is a collective of three People who read the Forum in shifts so that it Looks like he never sleeps....

by the way the next two pictures in this series are also interesting


I wonder if Neuro's collection of boxes cases and bags also includes something to take the safety equipment this German PRO carries around....

Price for the Canon nicer than I thought, the Tamron not so cheap...

Well 2.5K postings but manners like a sibling of Ankorwat.... had to refrain for some days to answer...

Yes gentlemen of course the restrictions for Field Hockey are not comparable to soccer.
The picture I enclose is from a game of the Chinese female team playing outside the Arena on an artificial green field and another one from the Dutch male Team playing inside the Kyrocera Arena on watered  artificial green field.  The Chinese team's Picture is nothing special just a Goal against another Team and shot from the wrong side but the guys arround the lonesome TV Camera in the corner gives you an idea how relaxed the Dutch are with sealing of the area.

The question is: with or without STM like drive.
Using the 18-270 VC PZD or the 17 300 with a similar concept  through the adapter is not a pleasure and the AF lock is slow

I went to some of the Hockey games of the world cup currently held at The Hague.
Only one guy walking around there with the long whites, all Nikon black...

I'm not a pro photographer and my knowledge about hockey is that it is usually played by humans in skirts carrying a stick in front of them.... So I went there as a spectator for the fun and for pictures of my family enjoying the game... still I got 2 times routed to the press area based on having the 200mm 1.8L mounted.

By the way that happened years ago already at a Bundesliga soccer match to me. (Got kicked out of the paparazzi area when I asked one of the pros which number Klinsmann was wearing)

This time I could not help myself but replacing the 60D I had at the 200mm with a red EOS M (lead to the same result as my Klinsmann question)

Anybody got similar 'upgrades' because of white lenses ?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7d2 IQ thoughts.

So I'm wondering: Dual Digic 5+ or single Digic 6
So I'm sure: 70D style Video AF
So I'm sure: GPS and WIFI
So I'm sure: 5DIII style AF for still
So I'm sure: deep raw buffer

What I fear will make me angry soon:
3 month after I buy the 7dII which will be as soon as it is available, Canon will launch the 750D or 150D and besides the buffer and the still AF I fear it will have almost all of what I list above for 1/3 of the price.

Well at least I will not be bothered by a mode dial with a green window of shame....
