+1So contrast AF is more accurate than phase AF ?
Yes, but slower. Phase detect uses a separate sensor, and if that sensor or the optics in front of it are misaligned relative to the image sensor, focus will be off (and that why there's AFMA - to correct that misalignment). Contrast detect uses the image sensor itself to determine focus - nothing to misalign.
The guy had a spare 'dump' adapter which works great. Since it's a Macro lens (55mm f/2. , I probably won't really care about the AF confirm unless I'm actually shooting someone. Oh, and it came with an m42 bellows as well Too bad it'll have to wait for a couple of weekends before I'll have time to start really playing with Macro.That sounds good. Just because 99 of 100 of the cheap chips work fine, does not mean its worth risking a $500 repair bill to save $20.
I also prefer the twilight feel of the first (original) picture.Its up to the original shooter. If he wants to use PP to change the image to look like what he remembers, he should. The camera is merely guessing at the colors and other parameters based on mathematical algorithms and can be way off of what the scene actually looked like. It is not necessary to keep a photo in its out of the camera state.
The digital conundrum...because it can be changed, does that mean it SHOULD be changed?
Thanks for the quick reply. Last night a lot of refurbished lenses came back in stock, the 70-300L amongst them. Why should that one show up by mistake (happened twice already)? Isn't it a lot more likely that someone else just pulled the trigger and that is why it is out of stock again? This lense seems to be selling very well...The 100-300mmL doews not sell quickly, even at 20% off, it did not sell out for 5 days. When they add new stock, its not just one or two.
Hi all,Sometimes the lens shows up and then disappears right away when they recognize the error. They have access to the stock inventory when you call, and if it shows zero, they can't send you one, no matter how much you want to make it read somethinng else.
first post, driven by frustration... But I love this forum!
Did anyone receive their "backordered" refurbished lense, yet? I ordered mine (70-300L) during the 20% off sale and it is still on backorder even though it showed up as in stock twice already (10/8, and last night). Canon service keeps telling me they had no idea why it showed up and they would absolutely serve existing orders prior to putting items in the online store. I feel like they prefer selling it for the regular price than to me.
What is your experience?
You should be able to mount your camera on a tripod and look thru the viewfinder. Thats without any elevated center column. Never raise the center column, you might as well hand hold the camera, the shaking will be similar.
That means I don't have a choice but to buy http://www.ebay.com/itm/Horusbennu-FX-1753T-Premium-8X-Carbon-Trans-Traveler-Tripod-250cm-Leg-Only-NEW-/280890574507?pt=US_Tripods&hash=item41666206ab
That would be fun.
What tripod do guys around 6 and more foot use? I guess most of them bend and so will I.
Also waiting for the new (440EX-RT) to pop up. I'm sure its just a matter of time. My guess is Canon wants to sell more 600s first or maybe its production capacity problems (6D production consuming all the resources...that damn 6D).I doubt if they compete for resources at all. If there is one coming out, it might be in January when they tend to introduce the less expensive equipment. Just don't hold your breath.
I checked my box, its still laying here. It has a blue dot. That usually means some sort of rework or upgrade has been incorporated.
Yep...it's definitely PRO DGX with the green (or was it blue) dot on the box (I don't have the box handy). Actually. just remembered my wife has one, too, so I'll try hers, too, and see if it's any different.
While you retest on a stable tripod, don't raise the center column! I learnt the hard way about this no-no...=1. You can't be too stable for critical tests like this. I get much better results in bright light and on concrete with my very heavy tripod and never extend the center column. I could have added weight to the under hook, but my results were fine.
