Software & Accessories / Re: My Dell vs iMac
« on: December 11, 2013, 03:36:22 AM »
holy war! holy war!

computer is not just a motherboard, memory and disk. infrastructure is something you should also consider. i've seen people switching from pc to mac and vice versa. reasons are different: mac/pc is slow, mac/pc is crashing all the time, mac/pc doesn't have software needed and etc, etc.

so... will you have everything needed from infrastructure point for switching? for example, do you know that Adobe products are much more stable for pc than for mac? have you considering buying outstanding dell ultrasharp monitor? there are lot more questions to consider, as you see.

I wonder whenever it is possible to leave in EU and get this offer in USD? When I choose EUR as a currency, it shows 12,99€, which is definitely not 9,99$

Technical Support / Re: 100mm f2.8 L Macro - to filter or not to filter?

+1 here for using filters. I'm using B+W HD one and no side-effect so far.

hm... looks over-exposed to me and skin texture is just gone

And why is that a bad thing? I like it.
I don't say it is bad. I would prefer nicely exposed picture in this case. And it's not like I say: only properly exposed picture is a good one.

I think that's the idea; ancient technique to produce more flattering image of someone who's not perfect.

If someone is taking a picture of me I like it to be overexposed to the point of being just white  ;)
Do you mean photographer wanted to say she is not good enough to be properly exposed?  ;)

Canon General / Re: Grey Market 5D3 and CPS
« on: October 15, 2013, 07:24:00 AM »
I am looking into getting a grey market 5D3 off EBay, does anyone know if that would count towards my CPS points?
To my knowledge, it is not anyhow connected: in CPS you are registering only model and serial number.

Canon General / Re: Official: Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS

honestly, the mtf doesn't impress me at all. on the other hand, based on what i've seen from sigma with their latest releases, it should be much better than any equivalents canon or nikon has to offer. my guess the price will be around 750-850$ and i really hope it will perform better than what the MTF shows, otherwise, whats the point? if it does i sure see myself getting myself a copy

one thing i dont understand though, is the A rating... a C would make much more sense

The Sigma MTF *is* better than the Canon MTF for the same zoom and the Sigma lens has less distortion. Vignetting - have to wait and see. Will be interesting to read the DxO review of it, that's for sure!
I would skip DxO review as meaningless. Even for lenses they are sucked (for example, make a comparison between Canon's 200-400 with built-in extender and Nikkor 200-400 without: everything is better for Canon, but transmission is a only a bit behind - Nikkor still has a better overall score  ;D)

Canon is sleeping an other brands put new stuff on the market. It´s a shame.
You are not testing something interesting ATM? )

profoto pro b4

Unless you want cont. modeling lights on both channels, that would deplete the battery even with the charger attached. In studio I'd rather consider a D4, unless the speed of the Pro8 is required.
To my mind, modelling light should not be switched on all the time. But combination with Pro8 is also quite nice.
