EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Split? 5D X & 5D Mark III [CR1]
« on: February 09, 2012, 07:33:23 PM »
hah if thats true I'll take 2 of each

i wonder if that is the case if i can still get $2k each for my 5Dmk2s at 6months old

Is that an offer?

The 5D X approach addresses the MP race with D800.  With high FPS, the 5D Mk3 seems like a FF 7D.

Both are pricey!!!

Lenses / Re: B+W Filters compared to Promaster Filters?
« on: February 07, 2012, 11:41:22 AM »
Once, long ago, I tried to be cheap and bought a promaster polarizer.  And I was completely unable to focus, it was totally unusable.  Bought a Hoya instead.  So my only comparison is... B+W works and promaster might not.    ;D

All my filters are B+W and they have been just fine.  Never used ProMaster

Have you tried reading reviews on Amazon to get some feedback

ATTENTION:  I'm tired of reading through pages and pages of wish lists,  "oh if it has better dynamic range and better high ISO performance I'm getting it."  That's pretty much the stupidest and most obvious thing you could hope for in this camera (or any upcoming camera).  Of course EVERYTHING that Canon is releasing is going to have better dynamic range and lower noise at high ISO, that's just a given and it's a waste of bandwidth to even mention inevitable upgrades such as these.

Like Canon is going to forget to improve the dynamic range and iso performance if you don't mention it here on the boards, they are a multi-billion dollar company people where is the trust?  Some of you guys act like Canon is just a group of retards that don't know what they are doing, they don't need your advice.

Sorry we spoiled your day!

Seems to me that 5D3 would be introduced well before a 7D2.   At least it's due sooner.   

The aspect ratio (looks to be 16x9) of the LCD strongly suggests video is a key priority of the new camera.

I'd like to see a new 5D3 with the following:

FF 21 mp
same batteries as 5D2 and 7D
AF performance at least as good as the 7D
improved IQ in low light
double-exposure mode like new 1D X
option for 3, 5, or 7 shots in auto-bracketing mode

I've always packed my tripod inside my checked luggage.   Adds 4-5 lbs to luggage weight, but completely avoids any security check issues beyond those your checked luggage is always subject to.  This way spiked feet don't become an issue.  Just easier this way, I think!  :)

Has anyone ever come across a similar accessory for Canon lenses? Either a special tripod collar, or even better, a pistol grip that can screw into the tripod collar to make it easier to hand-hold a large lens (like the 100-400)?

EOS Bodies / Re: Nikon D800 at 36mp, Will Canon Respond?
« on: October 05, 2011, 06:19:05 PM »

If the 5Dmk3 has 36MP, I wouldn't buy it unless it  makes coffee *and* give head better than my girlfriend.

Why don't you try another website?

Software & Accessories / What raincover solution do you use?
« on: September 21, 2011, 04:57:49 PM »
Going to Michigan next month to shoot the fall color and want to be prepared for rainy conditions. Need a raincover for my 7D + tripod that is effective, easy to use, and reasonably priced.  Have used trash bags in the past but find them a bit awkward.   Any suggestions? :-\

well, clearly this is evolutionary. let me wager and outrageously accurate and educated prediction.

a fanciful 5dmkIII with the following:
55MP full frame image with 28 stops of dynamic range and a noiseless ISO range from 25 to 102,400. b/w noise compression kicks in at 409,600 ISO (max). indescribable AF with 90 point recognition at all offered exposure options, of equal power and effectiveness during video. 10,000,000 exposure durability on shutter with 60 - 1/32000 second timing variables. specialty flash sync at 1/2000 of a second. 24fps burst mode at RAW. manual video control over full dynamic range and iso. incremental frame rates from 1 to 240 frames a second at 18bit 4k resolution, uncompressed 4:4:4 prores codec with built in HDR mode. rolling shutter. in-camera aperture, zoom and focus control (wireless with controller). dual CF card reader/writer supporting up to two 512GB 120mb/s cards. 3G-SDI output. thunderbolt output. complete removal of aliasing and moire issues. quarter-inch input for audio, with manual audio control and phenomenal compressor/limiter/white-noise reducer options engineered by Waves.

bunch of other neat stuff.

oh, and it comes as an option with a brand new 16-135mm f/1.2 L series lens with an entirely new motion-predictive system of IS.

they have also rumored the street name for this camera to be appropriately titled "the game changer" ...Nike is also on board for co-op marketing.

PRICE = $50,000

7D + FF @21MP + DR + ISO + Better In Camera Image Processing + Less noise all across the board + Top Video = Nikon Killer?

I like it, except could do without a video upgrade. :)

Software & Accessories / Re: Tablet Computers - yes or no??
« on: September 06, 2011, 03:44:44 PM »

Its quite an exciting concept, an ipad with a pen... like a wacom tablet on the go! I cant believe Adobe haven't capitalised on this yet, but im sure a full version of photoshop will be a hog on the current ipad and adobe cant get a decent version running perfectly on the current mac system and with their history of being extremely poor at upgrading code on the mac side i would suspect we will be waiting for this for some time.

My 2p ;)

If I have my facts straight, you can only get iPad apps from the Apple Store.  It's a closed system.  Adobe might want to have an iPad version of Photoshop, but the Apple apps policy currently prevents it.

A miniature Dish Network receiver and tuner, perhaps as a hotshoe mount option, displaying on the rear LCD.  Would give photographers something to do while waiting for 'the shot'.  Looking forward to seeing this on the bottom of the camera:

A terrific concept.  And no doubt with a DVR too!

IMO -- If the 6D version emphasizes video, then it would likely have an articulating LCD like the 60D.  The 5DM3, emphasizing stills, would have a fixed LCD, but with increased resolution compared to 5DM2.

I wonder what "Articulated LCD Fixed" means. I really hope they don't put a 60D-like screen on the 1 and 5 series now.

I was wondering that too.   A 60-D type screen would make the already-big/heavy camera even moreso.  Doesn't make sense.
