magic lantern?

I'd prefer something officially supported - botching a production because of something unexpected happening in conjunction with a hack would seriously suck.

3. exposure hold (options to enable not to timeout as long as new exposure is choosen).  i believe that with this option, i would probably moving faster than now in Av and Tv mode.  for now, i have to use manual mode all the time since exposure would be canceled during the time that i am playing around with focus point(s)

the AE lock holds for 4 seconds on the 7D. I do believe that it will lock continuously so long as you press the button at least once every 4 seconds, though i have not tested this as i do not use this feature often.

that is what i thought, but there is an option of exposure hold offered in canon 7d (not sure exactly what this does (not playing around with this option that much since i found out that it is also timed out.  i prefer there is an option to hold it until i am going to cancel it or choose another exposure.

it is kinda slow when choosing focus point and keep track exposure at the same time.  however, there is a work around in this case (i do not like it but having no choice as if i am choosing to shoot in Av or Tv) which i have haft press  shutter again prior to choosen exposure time out.  :(

as current rumor specs of 7d mark ii, it is a great config, in fact i am loving it already :)  not sure how noise at high iso turn out.

note:  if canon can help me to put this option into my 5d mark iii, i would love my canon gears more :)

sound like a great camera and there is two things that i would like to add to this camera if canon could help:
1. highlight alert (i.e. default/or auto enable like canon 20d, 30d, etc) when viewing image with histogram
2. spot metering circle (options to enable it as if it in other metering mode is selected. not just like 7d, it only offer with spot metering mode)
3. exposure hold (options to enable not to timeout as long as new exposure is choosen).  i believe that with this option, i would probably moving faster than now in Av and Tv mode.  for now, i have to use manual mode all the time since exposure would be canceled during the time that i am playing around with focus point(s)

note:
1. on the third option, i am not sure if i know how to use it properly on my canon 7d. but even setting up with exposure hold.  it would not hold my exposure like i have stated  :(
2. feel free to add to my wish list  ;)

I don't shoot test charts like youself, but I will post these.
you otta, you can learn a lot from doing so which can spare you from some surprises later.  Wish I'd have shot the heck out of test charts w my 5d2 when I first got it, would not have been so disappointed if I'd have returned/sold it.

I don’t like the first shot at all, about 40% of the image is deliberately crushed to black, complete RGB=000, a style I’ve seen you use too often for my tastes.  I’d have preferred to see a hint of texture in the t-shirt and collar at least.  but if that’s what you and your subject are happy with, so be it.

2nd shot is good, i like it and it doesn’t have to be crushed like 1st eg to look good.

3rd is enjoyable and, if I remember the last time you posted that, didn’t you say it was heavily pushed from your 7D?..  I don’t remember seeing the original or any 100% crops so we can tell if there’s any FPN tho it looks adequate for printing a 5x7 to 8x10 at least.

4th doesn’t do anything for me altho if I happened upon such a scene I’d likely have shot it similarly.
Now please, indulge me in your d800 art aglet.
look at my profile, posts, attachments - dsc prefixes are definitely Nikon, as are likely some others with file numbers < 1000.
But posted here is not necessarily my art, but educational examples, some w artistic merit.

But you will not DARE to wade into this croc’-pond with some specific test shots requests, will you?
Bummer, i was hoping to compare how bad my 5d2’s FPN was to others’ 5d2s.
Educational opportunities here seem mostly afforded only by the brave.

your posted images in here are NOT?  really, i thought number of those images being tried to sell on your website (http://www.a2bart.com).  however, i am here to throw to your face number of images taken with canon 5d mark ii from "colby brown" - www.colbybrownphotography.com... 

my words to your images... as bad as your photography skills.

I'm out of popcorn. :|

Edit: Btw Aglet, I could do a better job with a D30 than what you've shown as samples.

i'll get one for you, who else wants more popcorn :P  i thought that someone was trying to make popcorn-booth though LOL

Hopefully we can keep this as one isolated thread for the naughty children, though with Aglet's propensity to call in the Admins I doubt it.

Can I have some of the popcorn?

 ;D

i will get an extra for you... i think he would probably call.  but if he want information to bring me to court, i am willing to assist him how to request it  8)

hmmmm what are you saing?
I repeat:This  people with minor knowledge who are shouting with big letters , they must first  understand the physics of law and signal / noise. If they think they now  are the wonder of the lives regarding photography , they must understand  that with a camera with a large DR they have the  conditions to take even better pictures. Good luck

i am certainly a person with minor knowledge, but better than yours.  i am going to post any of my image upon your request, but not chicken like you, not posting YOUR BEST OF BEST IMAGE as requested...

..your clients are blind.  compare the two below.  the first one, which is yours, is what i am calling snapshot.  if it is mine, i send it to trash can right away

DID YOU OBTAIN MY PERMISSION TO POST MY IMAGES ONLINE?

I don't see a request anywhere.  I recommend that that you edit your post to remove them immediately.

BORROW JAY MAISEL QUOTE TO EDUCATE YOU:  "TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING AT".

OK, there's your technicolored hero.  As before, oversaturated cliché.
and irrelevant to the topic of this thread.
As is generally the case around here.  ::)

If you want to have an artistic merit discussion there's a different area for that.

go ahead and make a claim small case at court, i am open to it...  i know how to deal with this type of cases though.  know how to claim a small case?  if not, i am showing you how...

remove it?  no, i am not going to.  if you wish to, ask admin to delete that post.  that the only way... so pathetic that you can not even recognize what is the different between link and download and re-post.

why are writing with big letters, you can not ran around the law of physics regarding signal/noise  and banding

i thought you do not see it; therefore, i am writing BIG.

"... you can not ran around the law of physics regarding signal/noise  and banding..."  under one shot, i can't... with HDR/bracketing i certainly can.  i believe that i can take good images with any brand of dslr regardless of using canon or nikon

Folks,
Greetings,
As we all know the dynamic range of 5D MK III is not better than its counterpart Nikon D800. I was wondering if this deficiency could be addressed by using single shot HDR for batch processing. Has anyone tried HDR batch process to improve dynamic range, what would be good software for this purpose or any other comments. Thanks in advance.
Raj
:)

Dynamic range is the result of the highlight saturation ceiling and the noise floor. You can't use software to improve it because you can't create data that doesn't exist in the first place.

Canon cameras have a significant noise floor in the shadows, due to the way the sensor data is read that adds noise to it. Sony/Nikon's method of reading the sensor is inherently less noisy so they have more dynamic range.

Canon improved the 5D3 dynamic range by about a stop from the previous generation, and you don't really need more DR unless you're doing architecture or landscape, in which case you can use multi shot.

not true, if you know to handle the DR= show the reproduction from high lights to the lowest levels in a motive, 14 stops DR are more than 11 with banding and pattern noise including in the 11 stop of DR

show me your best of best image that you have ever taken so that i am going to open my eyes mr. self promoted president/artist...  once again, we all know what is all that about, you do not have to keep talking about the same for year(s) and we all know how to work around with it.  well, i guess no matter what you will keep saying the same since i guess that nikon probably hire you to be here and flood with same information, so PATHETIC...

PBD: I called Mikael an irrelevance, which by my understanding of the word is not an insult, because his comments in these threads are so often irrelevant.

IMO, you are directly disrespecting the man with that statement.
You seem to have an adequate grasp of english to be able to understand that you did not refer to his IDEAS with that comment, which you've repeated more than once.

If you were to do so, you'd have said, "Hey, your opinion or comment is irrelevant."
FWIW, irrelevance is not even a real word, but you're putting it into a context that comes across as disrespectful.
I also find your badgering of people for their raw files a put-off as well.
What do you hope to accomplish from someone else's raw files?
If you want samples of D800 or 5d2 files, you can find them, shot under very controlled conditions, on various sites.  Imaging-resourse is a good example.
Download them and play with them.  See how they compare for yourself.
I see little need to duplicate their efforts to appease such requests.

PSD calls only one irrelevant but i think should be both of you

PBD: Can you show us some images where the DR of the Canon just can't work but the slightly higher DR of the Nikon saved the day and made a worthwhile image? It appears not.

yes.
I can show you where, if I had shot Nikon, it would have provided an image that _I_ would have liked much better.  My client didn't care.  I'm a much fussier customer than my clients.

your clients are blind.  compare the two below.  the first one, which is yours, is what i am calling snapshot.  if it is mine, i send it to trash can right away



and this one, the second one we are calling art



and another two, ditto, first one is a snapshot.  not necessary an image composed with diagonal line is art



and second one is art

PBD: However, what we are constantly asking for is examples of where the Canon equipment lets you down in real world shooting,

Right, and when I actually started a thread on this exact topic a couple days ago I got 2 pages of crap from various fan-boys on this site who weren't patient enough for some examples to be posted by me or anyone else.  Very few others even braved the flames to actually try to participate.  I feel bad for them because they were interested in the topic but were likely turned off by the resulting brawl.  I certainly was.
Why should I, and some others, waste our time trying to share our experience and knowledge when the response is ridicule or disrespect?  Many of the people on this forum have something worthwhile to contribute, even if they're newbies.  However, I've often seen too many responses in a condescending attitude from certain participants; that does not create a healthy atmosphere for participation.
And it must the crankiness that comes with old age but I'm gonna call it when i see it.

well... we are newbies who are snapping images much much better than you though.  yep,  i am darn sure that my experience on photoshop and snapping an image is much much better than you by taking a look at your images

PBD: where maximising the lower capabilities of the Canon are not enough, where worthwhile real world images could only be shot with a Nikon. In truth I have never been shown one, not one single real world image, only lots of artificially set up and badly exposed "tests".

What I've generally stated is that the superior sensor performance of the other mfr's cameras allow a lot more creative freedom in post and simplified shooting in the field because we don't have to try wring the best from a mediocre product.
I and others have also stated that it's certainly a benefit to be able to recover from an underexposed shot, or to be able to compress the contrast in a shot with lots of dynamic range, so that the shadows aren't wrecked by pattern noise.  There are enough real-world situations where this is an issue.
I've made prints from my 5d2 and 7d that people think are great!  Sure.  I wonder what they'd have thought about the same images if I could have lifted the dark levels a little like I wanted to, so a hint of the detail hiding there could be seen - preferably without the stripes.

I don't know who said it but taking your dark print outside to view in sunlight to see the shadow details is not often an appropriate option!
This is when shadow range compression (lifting) is beneficial and when patterned noise cameras, like most contemporary Canons, are not up to the task in the more extreme cases.

Artificially contrived tests are what you use when you do research.  It's called a controlled environment to minimize variables.  It's daft to suggest such tests do not have merit, people need to understand how they work and how the results will apply to real world shooting.  If someone can't understand that, it's gonna be pretty hard to teach them much of anything.

oh my god, i wonder who would like to learn from you?  i do not...

PBD: I shoot a lot of very high dynamic range images, a Nikon would not serve me better.
That's true, but it is irrelevant! ;)
HDR can even be done with an 8-bit compact camera.

if nikon is that good dynamic range, i wonder why number of nikon users are using hdr.

he will not being able to simply because all of this images are crappy, from color to composition through number of years being photographer unless he goes out there and steal one.  you can tell by taking a look at his images via provided link in previous post.
