EOS Bodies / Re: What is missing from the 7DII specs
« on: March 28, 2013, 01:00:13 PM »
If I were to upgrade, my main concern, owning a 40 D, is how noise free the higher ISO's will be. Shooting at 3200 iso in a dark theatre, the images on the 40 D just have to much noise.  I don't see the current 7 D as having much better noise performance than my 40 D.  But I imagine the price will be too high and I will be stuck looking at a
70 D.

I personally think that you cannot find any camera with NOISE FREE even at ISO 100...

I agree with whoever said that, except for the 10 fps, they look more like 70D-like specs.

I doubt we'll see the 7D AF in the xxD anytime soon.

let me guess... we will see canon t5i in 70d body with some additional software feature like AFMA, etc...

This just sounds like a sensor test body, not the full camera, using the current af from 7d and just used to test the sensor.

official integration test methods and approval integration test results are based/required to test on the whole system.  i personally do not think think that they can test it like that unless canon is not going to release this camera soon... then they can test it that way...

Holly smoke!!!...

5D Mark III ISO:  100-25600 (L: 50, H1 51200, H2 102400)
   Note:  For [Highlight tone priority], the settable ISO speed range will be 200-25600

7D Mark II ISO:  The same?

Overall, I personally think that given specs are pretty good.  The only thing that I do not like is one CF card.  However, points that I am starting loving this camera are
1. FPS
2. ISO (Not sure how can they handle noise level at such high ISO?  But it is pretty impressive with 2 stops better ISO)

Not sure if anyone need this function, but I think that it would be kinda handy if Canon can provide a function that help me to perform exposure lock forever until I cancel it (Like give me a option to set a toggle button between lock and set.  Current exposure lock function will timeout in certain amount of time...).  This helps in acting quick when using AV/TV mode with selecting focus points instead of select focus and then re-compose...

EOS Bodies / Re: 1DX Replacement
« on: March 23, 2013, 02:53:08 PM »
Product announcements

1DX on October 18, 2011 (24 months)
1D4 on October 20, 2009 (32 months)
1D3 on February 21, 2007 (18 months)
1D2n on August 22, 2005 (17 months)
1D2 on January 29, 2004

i agree with charlesa who said, "No way the 1DX will be replaced that soon".  and keep in mind that 1dx is actually a direct replacement of 1ds mark iii, which was announced in 2007, instead of 1d 4.  so think about it... unless canon come up with a 1d series body with a different usage such as either aps-h or high m-pixel camera.  i do not see that 1dx replacement coming out pretty soon, say within about another 3 or 4 years...

The more money Canon milks from its entry-level product line, the more money it has to invest in its pro and semi-pro gear. Sounds good to me ;D

yeah well it only has to show results some day....

I would say the 1Dx and the 5D3 are adequate results.

Aside from dominating the DSLR market, yes.

humans are never satisfied with what they have :) like we wants more holidays per year, so retailers or manufactures... but really different thoughts between the two since to retailers and manufactures more holidays mean more bussiness... LOL

if sell it for less than or equal to $100 bucks, i rather keep it for:
1. give it to my one of my relatives, or
2. give it to my daughters (they could have fun with it), or
3. keep it for experiment purpose, or
4. use it in creating textures, etc

note:  my 7-year-old daughter and i am still using my 30d since one of the local camera store offers me for $250.  it still serves me well though... :)

Can anyone confirm if the T5i has the same new sensor that the SL1 has?  The marketing materials clearly state the SL1 has a new sensor, but it is unclear if the T5i has the sensor from the T4i or the SL1.

nope but i will bet it looks like this:

Canon 550d - 18mp - DXO Mark sensor score: 66
Canon 600d - 18mp - DXO Mark sensor score: 65
Canon 650d - 18mp - DXO Mark sensor score: 62
Canon 700d - 18mp - DXO Mark sensor score: 5?


yeah i know it´s all wrong what DxO does and even a score of 40 would be good enough.  :P
fanboys... pfhhhh.
Canon's market team is offering 50 cents for each person who defend 700D, go collect them ;D ;D

i personally do not care about scores analyzed by someone else.  i do care about my eyes and my techniques that i have developed on my own and yes, i am still using my canon 30d every day...  for me, internet sources are there for me to read, trust it or not it depends.  use your brains instead of using provided information...

for example:  i will not learn photography techniques from Sal unless it is offered for free but will learn marketing techniques from Sal even though it is not offered for free.

Straight from the Canon Japan website:

Shot at ISO 1600

Well, that pretty much confirms it to me. Looks pretty much like my 550d; I can already see the hallmark red/green blotches of pattern noise without even attempting to lift the shadows.

Let's hope they'll do better on the 70d. I don't see why they couldn't. From what I've seen, this problem is much better controlled on the 5d3/6d?

this image was not taken with t5i aka kiss x7i, it was taken with sl1 aka x7.  i am not sure as if anyone interest in seeing images taken with t5i?  but if you do, i have some (a portrait shot with 1600 iso is the highest iso image i have... pretty clean image). 

note:  recently found out that they have updated their website with all 8 images from t5i, so i do not need to post them up.  here is the link

another thing is that i am not sure why people are complaining about this one.  canon did not say that they are majorly upgrading nor minor upgrading this to t4i, but just said that a new version.  like someone in this threat has said that you will find a new model of car every year, but the different might be just lights...

canon, pleaseeee release your 7d mark ii....

Integrated grip and a high-density AF sensor?  Very, very interested.  Throw in noticeably better high ISO performance than the current 7D and I'm sold...

Ditto! Very exciting...

i am in for one if new 7d mark ii matches above description :)

Lenses / Re: Keep or sell??

well... if you would like to keep it, then you can use it as macro lens :) all you have to do is to pay additional around 5 buck for reserve ring:

Canon General / Re: What am I doing wrong???
« on: February 26, 2013, 04:41:35 PM »
first, third picture is not that sharp to my taste.  taking a look at the third picture, it seems like that you focused and re-composed on that image?  as if you did, please quit doing that with apeture of 1.4 unless you are standing far away from subject.

Hey, I'm grateful for offer of help, but kinda not liking that you made assumption these are pictures I care about (otherwise, why critique?). I guess my ego is too big, eh? :). And I do know that f4 or f5.6 is miles easier to work with than f1.4.

These pics are just a showcase of a problem. Picture 3 HAS a plane of sharp focus, picture 2 doesn't! Where did the focus go? What caused smudginess? Why are they not ALL like attached one? That's what I'm wondering about.

Some of my pictures I like, not necessarily all sharp :) are at

true... your liking image does not need to be sharp.  it is about the moment.  sorry about mis-understood your question.  however, i am going to delete that post so it is not going bother you...

Canon General / Re: How well do you see color?
« on: February 25, 2013, 02:56:02 PM »
even though i already know that i do have problem with colors, i did give it a try.  my eyes were hurt when taking a look at those, yet some of them are look the same in those rows  ;D

i bet that i will fail the test when clicking on check result...  that is why i am suck at photoshop and the mainly reason why i am trying to focus on techniques more since i somewhat trust camera color calibration :P

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Nikon finally Admits D600 Dust Problem
« on: February 23, 2013, 01:06:40 PM »
here is my guess:  based on number of pre-order numbers of nikon d7100 is not as many as expected, they admits their problems with d600 with a hope of drawing more pre-order on d7100...  ;D

D7k had oil smears issues too upon launch so icant see d7100 avoiding it  ;D

ummm... never heard of that problem with d7000?  might be i was not a dslr user during that time.  all i know is that number of my friends have dust and oil problems with their d600.  they all have had to traveled to los angeles several times to get their camera cleaned and all complained about parking fees and hassles...

note:  i used to laugh at people who were carrying big camera with them when traveling, but i now bet that someone is standing at somewhere in a crowd is laughing at me carrying a big camera...   ;D

oh... just notice that my status has been changed from "t4i" to "eos m"... i thought t4i is a better choice?  is there something wrong?... LOL
