EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: DSRL Camera for travel
« on: July 10, 2014, 07:01:40 AM »
what do i like about the x20?  i love the "zoom-ring" at the lense... "dslr-feeling"  ;D and i can use pol-filter or nd-filter with this cam (44mm i think). just like on my 6D... but SUPERLIGHT AND SMALL ;)
FWIW, since I recommended it, the Sony EX100 III has a built in ND filter (have not tried it yet) and there is a small simple adapter you can hook on and use other filters, such as a CPL.

The IQ (provided you shoot in RAW) I have seen from this very tiny package is very impressive. It is supported in LR5.5.


sometimes (for more important stuff - little bit mor DR and no "smuged" images at 100%) i shoot in RAW with the X20 - but for normal stuff and walk around at daylight jpg is just fine...

and not to forget 20MB!!!! RAW vs 3MB jpg  ::) 
(on screen you really cannot see any difference)

my 2 cents...

2 years ago i was in a nearly same situation. My opinion is...

If i want i lightweight camera for traveling, i would never take a camera with interchangeable lenses.
you know the benefits of you dslr, it´s heavy with 2-3 good lenses but you want the best image quality you can get...
A small DSLR is nice (SL1) but with a cheap-superzoom-lense it´s also bulky/big/heavy - but you loose a lot of image-quality. so you still have a "big camera" with you but you´ll miss the handling/quality of your "good gear".
(So you can theoretically still use your 5D3 with 24-70...  8) )

that´s the reason i ended up buying a Fuji X20.

Yes, the image-quality is not the best, but this small guy (or any other p&s-camera in this price-range, G1X, RX100...) is just a joy to use for walk around. VERY light, you have zoom-range for most situations (28-120 or so), and no worry about which lense to choose... just turn it on and take your picture. that´s just easy and makes fun...

what do i like about the x20?  i love the "zoom-ring" at the lense... "dslr-feeling"  ;D and i can use pol-filter or nd-filter with this cam (44mm i think). just like on my 6D... but SUPERLIGHT AND SMALL ;)
and a very imressive macro-mode!!!

what i would like to say...
if i would loose image-quality with a cheap DSLR+Superzoom to my 6D, than its no problem for me to "loose a little bit" more IQ with a good p&s but i have so much more fun and flexibility with a really small and light "walk-around-system".

Here are some examples from my X20.
(yes, at 100% it´s not like my 6D - but for screen and medium-prints... hey, for me this is the way to go!)  8)


or you can check for examples my "triest-gallery" at my website... all shoot with the x20.
it was a really hot day and i was so happy that i have just this little guy with me. WONDERFUL! ;)

or this gallery... all with pol-filter on x20. just great

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Sell 7D in favor of 6D or 5D2...?
« on: March 03, 2014, 04:43:39 AM »
I have switched from 7D to 6D in December... and don´t regret it.
thought i would miss the joystick but a few weeks later it doesn't matter.

but i shoot a lot of stills, maybe some portraits. If you do a lot of sports you could miss some more af-points :)
the last photos on my website was taken with 6D... i like it  ;)

Software & Accessories / Re: Photoshop CC & Lightroom 5 for $9.99/mth
« on: November 22, 2013, 09:44:38 AM »
i like the magic between usd -> eur

at the moment: 1,00 USD = 0,74 EUR

Adobe Photoshop CC: 9,90 USD = 12,99 EUR  :o   

i´m no math-genius but it should be 7,39 EUR?
or normaly it is 9,99 USD = 9,99 EUR :-)

canon should do the following:  ;D

- don´t bring a 7d2
- instead bring the 5d3 down to 2000 and the 6d to 1200  ($/€)

result
...the 7d´ler (aps-c´ler) buy the 5d3 and getting superb image-quality. (hey, 2000 is still a lot of $$$).
...5d3 sales growing
...and with the 5d3 you have enough space/quality for cropping the image.

most of the users will be happy  8)

 having a 5d3 I can tell you that I don't have the time to crop 3000 wildlife photos and would rather use my 7d if the light's good

who shoot 3000 photos at once?  :o
i think most of the photographers are still crop their images. no matter with which camera they were taken. (a little bit less on the right side, more center, or a little bit closer, perspective correction...)
