EOS Bodies / Re: Do Sensors sell the Camera?
« on: August 25, 2014, 09:50:01 PM »
In 2-4 years time, I expect people with Sony/Nikon cameras to be taking and editing photographs that Canon people simply can't - at least not with the same level of detail and color. I fully expect Sony/Nikon cameras to have 15, if not 16, bit ADCs in 4 years time. As for the system? They'll fill that in. The vast majority of users don't need more than a handful of lenses - thus "a system" that has macro, T/S, etc, is meaningless to the average photographer that will buy a camera plus lens kit and use that for the next n years without buying anything else. How many people is that? There's a thread on here somewhere... the number of people that buy extra lenses is less than 10%. i.e the "system" is meaningless to 90%+ of the people that buy Canon cameras.

you sound pretty smart in giving prediction for future.  but i do not see it that way, including in photography.  however, if you can answer this topic question close to the truth, then i might re-consider.  remember, do not let me think that it is all tofu that are residing in your br**n...

The only part I'd be concerned with is the ability of the A7r to hold a long/heavy lens on a tripod.

er... what? The tripod holds the lens, the lens holds the camera.

lol...

these questions is written especially for dilbert:

1. where in the world that canon suggest users to increase 5 stops in post?  only 3 stops max that i know.  however, if i shot an image and increase close to 2 stops of exposure, i consider myselft as a looser in the learning game.

2. sensors see two of these images as the same exposure? assume that:
    a. focus points of the two cameras were on the same brightness level, and
    b. images are seeing at sensor levels, not taken yet, and
    c. excluding the use of spot meter since i do not think the photographers did in this case.

if yes, then dilbert, you need to learn more LOL....

note:  if you think that i steal the image from 500px, take a look closely and then make a determination, do not act like your friend.  honestly, i can get any images from online as long as i want, but in this case... i don't...

I guess that I now probably know the reason why Dr. Michael Adams chose to be a pilot and physician, and retired as major general, instead of photographer LOL...

sound like a good one...

  Dual DIGIC 6 Processors
  65 AF points “All Cross-type”. Dual cross on the center point.
  10fps
  ISO 100-16000, ISO Boost mode 25600 and 51200
  Built-in flash with radio trigger function.

  Anti-flicker mode, eliminates flickers under flickering lights (e.g. fluorescent lamps). <-- this one sounds very interesting, and please clarify whether or not this effect will works in RAW also, or just JPEG...

forgot to say that the dell xps 15 that i suggested is integrated with QHD display.  its specs are somewhat identical to MAC Book Pro.  below is a side by side comparison that i did last year, prior to targeting stuff that i want to buy.  keep in mind that MAC, for now, is always a winner when talking about noise and use time on battery life.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Nikon offers worst promotion...ever
« on: July 01, 2014, 11:48:07 AM »
not worth for the loss from switching, hence, kill the deal.  it is worse because nikon offers too low  :o

   1. some credit cards out there currently offer $200 cash back after $1500
   2. discover currently offers $150 if one spends $1000/month
   3. etc.

post your or raw file with meta data files here so that people know what i am talking about.... "Unfortunately it gets converted to sRGB for the web" <--  if this in rgb format, it look much like CRAAAAPPPPP

I've looked at the images you've posted to CR and if you're proud of them then I'll just say that we have very different tastes in photographs or what makes a photograph good.

I am proud of them when comparing to yours ONLY...

   - neuro:  have shared knowledge via discussion and have contributed times to provide good examples.
   - aglet:  nothing but trying to bash canon, talk crap and take crap images (A2BArt.com - moving your imagination )
   - dilber: ditto (same exact the next previous one, aglet, except link to website)...

note:  beside canon, i also like nikon, fuji, pentax... but NOT sony and hp

Let me put it another way:
neuro: bashes every camera/lens manufacturer except Canon, regardless of how good/bad the product is.
dilbert: bashes any company that dilbert sees as having a weak product

i am not sure as if week product simply because i:
   1.  do not have enough tools and information to judge/test (note:  field test should be tied if correct exposure)
   2.  do not know from a to z, another word, in and out of it

but i know for sure that you do not know what you are talking about?  do you involve in designing sensor,  integrate sensor, testing sensor... especially you do not know what you were saying in this following post:

[and i am, here in this topic, to let you have a chance to prove that your images are better than my images.  and i will prove you wrong...

Are you referring to the images that show up in your posts already on CR?

none of those, including yours (since any of my posted images are not better than anyone else, but certainly better than yours, also posted on cr forum)... those are just quick shots for practicing and learning.  have your chance to take new images.  i am going to post my new images, including raw... take wppi 16x20 rules as this rule of play.  how about that and fair enough...

do not go out there and steal since i know most of famous people images and keep in mind that raw file should be include in this play...

note:  play rules has been recently mentioned again, "to be clear, dodging and burning, vignetting is ok but not a graduated filter or texture etc"

Quote from: dibert

I propose a poll to see who among the CR members neuroanatomist, dilbert, or Aglet has provided the most helpful/useful/beneficial information to the other members of the forum.  The one with the most votes earns a pat on the back, the other two are permanently banned from CR forums.  I'll abide by the results if you two agree to do so as well.  What do you say, gentlemen...are you ready to put your reputations on the line?

It would seem that you post here for a completely different reason than I do, namely your ego needs stroking.

I post here mainly because I enjoy helping people, sharing knowledge (I enjoyed teaching medical and graduate students, and I rather miss teaching), and good technical discussions in which I can both contribute and learn from others.

Up until the point where you mentioned that you wanted/expected a pat on the back, I might have believed you (that your goals weren't ego driven.)

here my vote:

   - neuro:  have shared knowledge via discussion and have contributed times to provide good examples.
   - aglet:  nothing but trying to bash canon, talk crap and take crap images (A2BArt.com - moving your imagination )
   - dilber: ditto (same exact the next previous one, aglet, except link to website)...

       Yes, a 3 year old camera is a 3 year old camera, but as long as your camera is the still current model, your resale value will not drop as quickly as a model that has a replacement model on the market...  When a new model is launch, the price of the older model will drop even if the different between the new model and the old model is just the colour of the camera... A model with a replacement model in the market will sound older than it really is.

      Have a nice day.

exactly...  however, if new model release earlier than 2 years, i would suspect its performance comparing to previous one since r&d is not a quick process, it is required to have both entry criteria and exit criteria for each phrase or milestone, like the following:



note:  i do not expect any private industries using above process, but at least some sort of similar since they are all ISO and CMMI certified... to ensure appropriate quality products and products with new performance and features to customers...

I feel sorry for Nikon owners.
It doesn't matter what model they buy, even when first released, as a few months down the track, Nikon will bring out a new and improved version of it making your current model obsolete and now worth substantially less than it cost you. Remember the D600 then the 610?
Canon does hang onto models much longer, and hence they have better re-sale value later on as say, after 3 years, your Canon may be just superseded, but if you had an equivalent Nikon, it would be 3 models old and practically worthless.

I'm not saying that Nikon cameras are no good, in fact, they are very good indeed, but constant model updates is not how you keep up the perceived and resale value of products.
It also makes it more difficult regarding spare parts too, as many models mean lots of parts and distributors only have so much space and money for parts.

I feel sorry for people who buy cameras based on how much they can sell them for.

If your camera is in good enough condition to be sold as "mint" or "near mint" condition then you obviously haven't used it very much.

dilbert,  i am one of those who like to keep my camera near mint, including my test camera (not for resale value, but i have been trained to use stuff that way since i was a kid).  i have been used dslr not too long ago, about a little more than 2 years and half, but all of them are not near mint, but MINT.  and i am, here in this topic, to let you have a chance to prove that your images are better than my images.  and i will prove you wrong...
