Canon General / Re: Canon Says No to Retro Design for Them
« on: February 20, 2014, 05:19:23 PM »
Aren't all of Canon's DSLRs considered "retro" in design? They all still look like the T90 from '86!

Where is the retro cutoff?

Traveling with less gear will allow you to have a more enjoyable time while focusing on what really matters- the experience. It will also force you to be more creative in documenting the trip. Not having gear that covers every focal length and situation shouldn't be an excuse. Enjoy your trip!

Canon General / Re: Canon lack of innovation
« on: February 17, 2014, 08:29:17 PM »
I think Canon balances innovation with trying to run a company that makes a profit. What good is innovation if you are just driving your company into the ground or running in circles with no clear direction.

So much of the internet debate can really be reduced to one thing: Canon's sensor's dynamic range vs the Sony sensors that are in so many cameras now. Take away the sensor debate. What "innovations" are really happening in Nikon land?

Lenses / Re: Canon PowerShot G1 X II Thoughts from CP+
« on: February 14, 2014, 11:08:44 AM »
This camera is way more interesting to me than an M. I don't want to have to invest into another lens system & the 24-120 built-in lens on this looks pretty rad! The price will drop a bit once all the G1X models are gone.

A pointed disputed by the fact that EOS-M + 18-55 + 20 pancake is still cheaper than the G2X.

You're comparing a pre-order price to a close out price.

Or you can just get a 1dx and one lens and call it a day.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5DIII - too grainy or not?
« on: February 10, 2014, 08:16:45 PM »
@Marsu42,
That's an extreme push on that file! That skater looks purple now. Any file would/ should fall apart being pushed that far.

You could have shot at a slower shutter speed to expose the background better since the flash would help freeze the subject.

Also, why care so much about a little noise in a shadow? You only really see "noise" when pixy peepin'. Doubt you"ll notice it in a print, or an image reduced for the webby.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon's Medium Format
« on: February 10, 2014, 08:01:59 PM »
I would be surprised if Canon went into the medium format market.
They continue to develop and grow their EOS Cinema Division, which ties nicely into their DSLR/lens system. They are evolving in a smart way, contrary to internet forums where you are lead to believe Canon is "failing" because you can't raise the shadows in an underexposed image in Lightroom as much as a raw file from other sensor.

Lenses / Re: Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art Price leaked
« on: February 07, 2014, 09:31:58 AM »
How about people wait till the price is officially announced?

It's a really nice lens but the auto focus is going to be much slower that the 135. I'd recommend switching to back button AF and keeping your other hand busy on the focus ring to "help" and speed up the focus. It'll lock much faster that way.

Lenses / Re: Sigma 18-35

I am mostly a prime shooter, and always gravitate to a 35mm on my 7D. Since this lens is a constant f/1.8, I think of it like having multiple APS-C primes mounted to my camera at once!

So I get the following prime lenses: EF-s 18mm f/1.8 prime, 24mm 1.8 and 35mm 1.8 for less than 300 each AND I don't have to swap lenses? I'll deal with a lens that is a bit bigger.

This lens is pretty cool.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: FUJIFILM'S latest, X-T1 ?
« on: January 28, 2014, 04:59:36 PM »
It's kinda funny as far as Canon & Nikon's digital imaging systems have evolved, people are excited to go back to the beginning and buy into a new APS-C system with an 18-55 kit lens.

Also, guys, this "review" is obviously a parody and is supposed to be absurd.
