Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Nikon 7100 has been anounced
« on: February 21, 2013, 01:43:18 AM »
i do not see low light captured images this time though?  normally, nikon will post some of low light capture images on any new models, but not this one.  however, imo, look like the photographer was pulling fill light on the first image quite a bit (note:  take a look at yellow color exposing directly to sunlight and beneath water - camera angle was not perpendicular with water surface; therefore, reflect light from water will be lost and will be dark in the image since the photographer was trying to get correct color from the plane.  however, this is just a guess based on my understanding about light... nothing scientific though.  in addition, set of exposure at 1/500 seconds, f/11 with iso 100 is normally for bright snow to my understanding...)

http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d7100/sample.htm

in short, nice capturing images and all are sharp to my taste...  i am not a nikon everyday user, but only weekend at costco, so put it in costco warehouse for me to play around with :P

canon... canon... canon... where is my 7d mark ii, do not turn me down and please post un-edited for us to see please...

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 1DX vs 5DIII Wildlife Comparison

...Now I can wait to see what the 7DII has to offer.

in term of shooting and image quality purposes, they might be the same to our normal eyes.  however, it is 2x the price because of these:

1. shutter lag
2. shutter life (more than 2x)
3. metering (i.e. iSA, spot link to AF, etc)
4. frame rate
5. sync speed
6. seals and beatup
7. build-in battery grip

that i have not yet talked about gigabit ethernet, newly design on sensor cleaning, battery life, multi-point MA, etc.

i am one of those 5d mark iii owers who are drooling for 1dx.  i can not get it even though i can afford it (do not want to make my wife and my daughters feel bad even though she will okae when i ask for it)  :(

7d mark ii is the one that i am also waiting for.  as if it is as good as rumors, then i am going to trade my 7d for 7d mark ii.  my 30d will be in my everyday bag forever :)

people always say the 7d range is a  great wildlife camera,im sure it is, af, long reach etc. but surely image quality should be paramount?  otherwise why dont all wildlife photographers carry 7d's?

...you can achieve with something like the 7D and a 400mm or 500mm lens for FAR less cost...

FAR stands for "Free After Rebate"...  ;D

i am in for one as long as canon can make it low noise at high iso (do not really much care about luminosity noise, but color noise is annoying).  cannot imagine that 61 new focus points speading through out corner of the screen... love it

note:  do not forget about trying to add an option which toggles between AE Lock Hold and AE Lock Cancel, pefer not to keep my thumb full time on a button for holding exposure... my thumb should be on my joint stick to select my desired focus point :P

What If.... It also had built In RT triggers for speedlites? I'd trade that for GPS/WIFI anyday :o

did not think about that... this option is great.

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

I need more popcorn.

 ;D

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...

note:  keep in mind that not going out there to steal aiite...
