Performance seems pretty good in the new version. That was one of my big pet peeves with the old version was if you opened a folder with 1000 photos it would just hang for like 30 seconds to a minute doing stuff. Now it's pretty much instantaneous. The actual exporting is actually a bit slower. I did 10 photos in the old version and it took 1:57. The new version took 2:21. I'm not seeing any differences in image quality but it's possible it's there. One big bummer is nothing as far as settings seems to transfer between the two. Not even simple things like exposure or check marks. It's hard for me to want to switch unless they at least put in support for the 5D mark II. But I'm glad to see they're at least moving in the right direction. Just needs a little more work hopefully.

Canon allows you to keep both 4.0 and 3.x of DPP on the same machine means your hope may not come true. It seems that the DPP team is developing the 4.x for the current full frame cameras while updating the 3.x for the rest and old cameras, till you move your BODY up for the 4.x features.

Here's me hoping the Mk II will get supported in the next release ;) No way I'm getting a second Mk III body.

I hope the new DPP offers the option to set sharpening for the 5D MkIII by default to 'sharpness' instead of 'unsharp mask'.

Lenses / Re: 17-40 zoom noise - does yours sound like this?

My 17-40 sounds weird when zooming normal and fast.

Does yours sound like this?


I really had to turn the volume up to hear your sound; mine is essentially noiseless but then I haven't payed close attention to what it sounds like. In your case it sounds like gears turning which is a little odd for an USM lens.

It can be fun to play around with an analog camera, and it may help you improve your technique. After all a different take on things can boost your creativity and technical understanding of photography.

I went through the same 'maybe analog is *real* photography and I'm a faker' phase so I bought a couple old DSLR's to play around with. It's fun to use the old manual stuff and the results can be pretty good even with the cheap film I used and crappy third party film processing. The latter however is the point where the big difference is made I think - to be a *real* analog photographer, I think you need to take control of the post)processing so you need a dark room to do your own processing (something I definitely don't want to do). If you rely on third party processing, it's like shooting jpg with little control over the end result.

Attached shots are from my old camera's; the first two using an AE-1 Program and third one with a FT-QL and the fourth using a 50e.

Buttons are easier to seal than a dial.
Nonsense; put an o-ring around the axis and be done with it.

If I have components of my EOS system sitting around for too long, I usually sell it so there's not much stuff just sitting around. My least used EF mount lens must be my Sigma 20mm F1.8 DG Aspherical RF - but I love that lens nonetheless and keep it for the odd special occasion that I need a really wide and bright lens. Astonishingly it also (almost) does macro with its crazy close focusing ability.

Other stuff I have that doesn't get used is two FT-QL bodies and an AE-1 program that I keep for interest's sake. I own a bunch of FD and FL mount primes too but some of these occasionally find their way to my NEX-6 via mount adapter.

I have an old 40D which is a cracking camera, probably my favourite Canon camera of all time bar the 5DIII (5DMKIII is like a full frame 40D with better AF and had been waiting for it for a long time).

I agree on this, I went from a 40D to a 5DMkII (which very much is like is a full frame 40D), and then to the MkIII which is the improved FF 40D with better AF like you said. Of course both the 5D MkII and MkIII destroy the 40D when it comes to image quality.

A few non-living rear-ends...

Cool where did you take these?

Dear Friend Mr. Rienzphotoz.
Yes, You and Me have the same Point of Views/ Dirty old man----No, Not Dirty, but Sexy Old man.
Ha, Ha, Ha.

I may be mistaken but in this case isn't your point of view 'from the front end of the subjects'?  ;D ;)

Been enjoying pretending this lens is a macro lens. Using live view and a tripod more than I ever have!

That reminds me of my recent trip to Japan, the cherry blossoms really are as spectacularly beautiful as they say  :)

How about a return to the APS-H size sensor for the 7D Mk II ?
Not going to happen!

An APS-H camera can not use any of the APS-C lenses, does not have the "reach" of APS-C, and does not have the low light capabilities or IQ of FF. You get the disadvantages of both with none of the advantages of either.

You would be better off with a FF camera.

APS-H came about when FF sensors were hard to manufacture and expensive. Now, the cost difference would be minimal. The real question should be how long will APS-C last in DSLRs....

APS-C in DSLR's will stay as long as it offers the reduction in cost, lens size and weight. Until it is killed off by the mirrorless camera's of course which I think could happen because mirrorless is the realm of compactness and portability. To me, APS-C in DSLR's is dead anyway and I can't see any reason to go 'back' to that format for my personal needs.

An open question for me is, what full-frame camera will have essentially the 7D II's technology?

I see two options:

  • The 7DII is based off the 5DIII, and thus the 5DIII is the full-frame 7DII
  • The 7DII is an expansion of the 70D and the 5DIII, and thus the 5DIV would be the full-frame 7DII

I've shot for nearly a decade now with the 20D and 5D, which are very nearly the same camera with different sized sensors.  I REALLY like this approach.  I'd love a 7DII for high-frame-rate and long-reach applications and a full-frame version that's slower (because of the larger mirror and shutter) as it's partner.  Shooting this way has really proven to have merit for me, largely because I don't have to switch UI and camera behavior when switching bodies on the fly at an event.

Honestly, the 5DMkIII is a full frame 7D as far as the body style is concerned.

Hey guys. New here, thought I'd post a shot I took at Yosemite this month.

Took it with a 60D and 24-105 f/4L, stitched multi exposure. Actually, the cropped sensor framing of this shot annoyed me to the point that I now bought a new 5d mIII. So this was my last cropped sensor shot.

What a way to end! Magnificent ;)  Welcome to the forum!

Hi Ecka.
Really nice shot. A caption for 4242.
Are you taking pictures of me? How dare you!

Cheers Graham.

Thank you Graham.
The caption is more like "You better feed me after the shoot, or else ..." :)

I love the green eyes :) This is a great topic, keep them coming!
