EOS Bodies / Re: 1D & 1Ds Rumors [CR1]
« on: April 08, 2011, 01:33:44 PM »
If you think it's a gimmick then don't use it. I personally think it's a good idea. It easily combines the 1D and 1Ds lines and allows users to get that little extra reach if they need it for sports and wildlife photography if they want it. But can switch to FF mode to get wide angle shots or start doing portrait work with the same camera.

The perceived increase in reach is just that, perceived.

And I still think Canon could redesign the mirror motion to allow a EF-S lens to be mounted on a FF camera. But that is beside the point.

Not really possible.  The mirror requires X amount of space to flip up.  The specifications for EF-S overlap that space by Y.

X-Y=broken mirror.

The only way to avoid that would be to make the top pivot point of the mirror move in addition to the leading edge flipping up.  Even then, you're probably only buying yourself a couple of mm.  That would result in the mirror being slower, less precise, and induce more vibration; and the more complex the motion of the mirror, the worse each of those attributes gets.

For me, the 1.3X crop on a FF sensor is a gimmick. By switching from FF to 1.3X crop will not by us anything except a smaller file size and a narrower angle of view. We can do the same thing at post process by cropping the FF picture.

Absolutely.  1.3x crop mode is pointless.  1.6x crop mode (assuming to afford EF-S compatibility) is impossible.

For Nikon it makes a little more sense, because their crop lenses vary only in image circle cast; afaik the physical specifications of the mount are identical.  With EF-S, lenses are allowed to intrude into the mirror box by a specified amount, and lenses that do (generally wide angle) will not clear a FF mirror.

I highly doubt 24-70/2.8 IS or non-IS would ever be a kit lens.  It is too specialized, and too expensive.

I'm budgeting for $2899/body $3899/kit at release.

That's assuming it's accompanied by the rumored 24-105L II.  If it's not a new version of the 24-105L I'd put the kit at $3699.

I think the rumorer meant the MP count is into "MF territory" at 42 MP, not that there's actually a MF sensor.

Absolutely.  Unless it came with a new mount and lenses, or mirrorless + CD AF that is usable.

Beyond image circle considerations (which apparently you can get around with TS lenses), there is the fact that you can't have a MF sensor on a EF mount body for the same reason you cant have a FF square sensor and retain the mirror.  Assuming the sensor is full 645 format (56 × 41.5mm), that would result in a mirror that is 58.7mm, which significantly larger than EF flange distance of 44mm.  Even a pellix mirror would be to big, but perhaps possible if you sacrifice VF coverage at the top (bottom) of the frame.

Canon General / Re: Canon 70-300 is L vs non

I'm in nearly the same boat.

70-200/2.8+1.4TC Vs. 70-300L Vs. 100-400

70-200/2.8 would be more flexible, but I lose IS.
100-400 has the extra length, but lesser IS.
70-300L looks like a good compromise, but will be too slow indoors.

Given unlimited resources, I'd get the 70-200/2.8IS + 1.4&2TC.  But that's not the case.

Better AF, all points cross, double cross in center + zones.
16bit Raw, and the DR to make them useful (so at least +2 stops or why bother)
High ISO improvements.  ISO 102400 may be silly, but clean ISO 12,800 or even 25,600 would be awesome.
No low ISO banding

Hotshoe powered, that's kinda cool.

I think for me it started with the omnipresent rumors of a 24-70/2.8 IS.

Next it was the 60D, which I anxiously awaited word on, but I was less than thrilled about what was finally released.  I ended up getting one anyways, and it should hold me over until my latest obsession is released, the 5D3.

Whatever equipment you choose, watch your step!

So remember kids, always use underwater housings when shooting weddings.

Just wondering if Crumpler's C List Celebrity amounts to the same thing? In addition to the backside opening, it seems to have room set aside for a laptop.

Do you have that one?  Does it stick out as far in the back as it looks like it does (pictures on Amazon and B&H)?

After a small incident I had at a winery, involving their display of bottles with ribbons around them (making them top heavy, and unstable), I'm very conscious of the distance things protrude from my back.

The loaded Flipside 400AW fits inside the Storm im2500 hard case

Just added both to my Amazon wishlist.

I'm in the market for a new backpack, and that sounds like a killer combo.

Not to be an echo chamber, but everything neuroanatomist said is dead on.

I use a Pelican 1510 with padded dividers.  Ample room, and easily fits in the overhead compartment.  Then I put my (empty, flattened) Canon 200EG backpack in my checked luggage.

Also, on some airlines a backpack counts as a personal bag, and doesn't count as your one carry-on.  So that's something to keep in mind too.

The 60D is also out of stock nearly everywhere.
