very very "smart and scientific" comparison...  ;D

when taking a look into some of responses to this thread, i start realize that some people do not bother to read original post which mention about "STRONG YEN", yet they do not even know what is going on between china and japan (east china sea or senkaku islands).

Or you can look at it this way:
The 5DII was the successor to the 5D, and a great camera.
The 5DIII is the successor to the 5DIII, also a great camera.

The 5DIII is the successor to the 5DIII, also a great camera. <-- not until april (firmware release month)  ;D

a book is there for you to read, it is just the matter of how much you are getting out of it.  same on camera, it is just a tool for you to use... if you are tight on budget, then find a work around way to deal with...  there is a commercial/fashion photographer has won number of awards with her canon 350d/xt.  ansel adams & george hurrell, etc did not have great tools back in the day, but they still produced great images.  after all, it is just the matter of art (from your eyes and retouch)

note:  if you are shooting sport, that is a different story.  GET 1DX  :P

WWOOOOOWWWWWWW!  :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o
Did you guys see the MTF chart on the Nikon???

Nikon without TC:


Nikon with TC


Borderline perfection!!


Here's the Canon to compare:



1. well... do i trust given information from nikon? not really.  why?  because of this:  they claim this image is taken with nikon d5200, but take a look into metadata

sample image 3:  http://chsvimg.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d5200/img/sample01/img_03_l.jpg

update note:  recently download the image to ensure the same image that i downloaded before.  check metadata and it is now d5200, not d800e anymore, not sure if it is the same image since i do not remember, but it should be the same scene.  ONE THING THAT I MIGHT HAVE A GUT TO SAY THAT "NIKON MARKETING TEAM IS ON CANONRUMORS CHANEL "

LOL

2. it is so bummer when comparing old design and old technology to new one.  use your brain please

In Sweden the Nikon 600/4 is almost 5000USD cheaper than Canons 600mm
Why on earth do you think  the street price will be higher on the Nikon 800mm than the Canons?


New design with new technology always much more expensive and this has been proven from time to time right :)  I guess next Canon 800mm will be about the same price, depending US dollars... will probably not be cheaper than nikon though :)

Why someone would talk about Nikon products on a Canon forum?


As soon as anyone mentions the opposition Canon fan boys jump in - sad really.

Read what the poster has to say and you might learn something.

well... that is just nature though.  i guess you should know about that right?  if not, try to get to nikon forum and ask them to buy canon and see how it goes.

note:  i will now let you know why i am not buying nikon.  because i had experienced crappy nikon pns prior to make purchase my dslr since i lost my trust in nikon.

"As soon as anyone mentions the opposition Canon fan boys jump in -" NIKON IS SO PATHETIC REALLY

increasing clarity (local contrast also sharpness) and increasing your sharpening add more grains to your image.  try to reset those sliders and re-post your image to see as if there are differences in which i think it will...

EOS Bodies / Re: Case focus on 5D MIII
« on: January 26, 2013, 11:14:52 PM »
i am not sure if i am correct, but case two i would pick since you want to shoot only your daughter from the crowd.  if there is no competition, then case one would also do the job :) in addition, pick cross focus points in the center for better result since it detects contrast better than any other focus points...

Canon General / Re: Why did you choose Canon?
« on: January 26, 2013, 09:28:21 PM »
For more than 10 years I shot event, product and wedding photography with Nikon equipment. I now specialize in wedding photography and like doing off camera flash when I can. When I saw that Canon announced the 600EX-RT flash with built in radios, I was very interested. After seeing some online previews, I ordered a pair of 600EX-RT and 5DIII. After a week of testing I loved how the flash system worked. The camera body seemed overall very similar to the D3s Nikon I was using as my primary camera in terms of image quality. I decided to shoot my next wedding with all Canon equipment. I took this image in the rain at my first (with Canon) wedding in early 2012. I sold all Nikon equipment when I got home.

seem like this style has been kinda popular.  it has been done by multiple photographers (jerry ghionis, sal cincotta, etc.) the only different is that they both use water miser instead of shooting under rain...  nice captured...

If Canon donĀ“t put a real replacement for the 1Ds on the market, they lose a lot of pros.

I thought:

   1. 1D is crop series
   2. 1Ds is full frame series
   3. 1DX is end of 1D series with crop

Lighting / Re: Buying Yongnuo Flash
« on: January 24, 2013, 05:36:45 PM »
I rather buy used 480EX than buying a Yongnuo 468.  They are both around the same price (might be $20 more on 430EX).  I bought Yongnuos (560EXs and 622Cs on supporting me to learn off camera flash), I can say that they are all pretty good so far, but paying about the same price, once again suggest to get used 430EX

EOS Bodies / Re: New Rebel T4i vs 60d/7D
« on: January 18, 2013, 12:23:08 PM »
i am one of those 7d owners and also had a chance to use t4i (friend's camera) to shoot last thanksgivin' event.  i can tell you that t4i image quality and noise performace is better than both 60d and 7d.  but if you are asking which one of these 3 that i am going buy, i still stick with the 7d because of build quality and easy access during shoot, etc...

yes, i can see that you have said, "I'm a very amateur amateur"... well... i do not know what to say but you must figure out how much you are loving photography and how much you are willing to spend your time and money to learn about it.  if you do not have much time to spend for photography, 60d is my suggestion since you can probably find this around t4i price...

...my 2 cents

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D AF and Focal Plane issues by recomposing

Great links, thanks!

Since recomposig sucks (visual-vacations.com dixit), I was just wondering how it all happens on a 6D.


well... i certainly can perform either way (re-compose or select one of those focus point) if you can lend me a 6d.  i bet that canon 6d is much much  better than a camera that i am using everyday for experiment purpose which is canon 30d (note:  i am using select focus point on this one).

for ai servo, if i still remember correctly, canon suggests to track your subject starting from center focus point for better result.

one of a renown photographer who prefers to use re-compose technique is bambi cantrell.  it is just the matter of technique that you have to train yourself when preferring to use it that way.

EOS Bodies / Re: DSLR & Lens Coming on January 15, 2013? [CR1]
« on: January 14, 2013, 10:56:49 PM »
Why would it be a 70D when the 7D is older?

So, it's also possible that the 7DII might get announced first for $1600-1800, while the 7D remains on sale for $1200.

my guess is that canon 7d ii would be some where around canon 6d price...  let's see...  hopefully it will be announced by tomorrow... i am waiting for it (might upgrade my 7d to 7d mark ii)
