EOS-M / Re: EOS M Owners Post Your Pictures

Just had an MP-E 65mm Macro 1x-5x lens for a week through CPS so I added it and my adapter to my EOS-M.  Handheld and just for fun.....I should have figured out a way to turn off the darn AF since it kept using the AF assist for an MF lens.  The shutter delay was painful so I shot the rest of the time with my 5D2

Do test shots with a friend or two.  Pick a time when the lighting is to your advantage.  Practice staging your shot with the equipment you have.

Shoot them in front of the arch and frame the arch around their heads as much as you can.  Use a small aperture to bring the arch and tracks into view.  Illuminate the couple since they will be backlit.  I'd use a 50 or 35 lens with a FF camera, 24 or 35 with a crop body.

EOS Bodies / 1D Mark IV Prices Dropping?
« on: July 01, 2014, 07:46:24 PM »
It looks like prices are starting to dip and sales of 1D Mark IVs are slowing in anticipation of a new body.  It looks like Canon is blowing out 7D refurbs too.

If Canon bring back the APS-H, It must be in the niche market and meet the following requirement.
1. Smaller than the 6D for portability
2. Same pixel density(or even smaller) than the 1Dx for low light/high ISO performance.
3. Very fast FPS for sports photographer due to lower MP.
4. At least half of the price of 1Dx
Question is at this day of age, how many photographer can live with a 10 to 12 mp camera as a general purpose camera?

Why does it have to be smaller than the 6D when you're going to be hanging big whites off it?
I think a 7D size 24+MP APS-H body would be attractive since the 1D4 is 16MP and $3500 complements the current line alongside the 5D3

Look how many 1D4s are used by sports pros.  Many would prefer to not change their shooting styles by going from a APS-H to FF or APS-C.  Sports shooters are the most visible of Canon's IRL ads.  Studio shots are usually closed to casual observers but everyone sees the sports shooters on the sidelines.

Can we have a discussion without the childish name calling? Austin, I would love to add you to my list of Richard Craniums but I don't have one.  You are entitled to your opinion as are all of us here.

24-70 with the 6D.  Bring your tripod and shoot nightscapes and the blue hour after your kids have gone to be.  Hawaii gives you both ocean sunsets and sunrises!

This is how rumors start. ;)

I looked for but couldn't find it.

Apparently not everyone.  It makes sense that Canon cannot price a new camera between the 1Dx and 1Dc.  $2000-2500 and they will cannibalize 5D3 sales.  I expect the new body between $3500-4000 which is too pricey for APS-C but perfect for a high MP APS-H body.

Apparently, Canon has the technology:

And you are so knowledgeable because ......

Won't be a 1D Mark IV replacement either because it will not have the larger pro body.  APS-H in a 7D size body.  It will keep the price down below the 1Dx but above a 7D.  I expect a $3500 price tag making it an APS-H equivalent to the 5D Mark III

It will be a 1D Mark V in a 7D size body, hence the change to 1Dx because it is full frame.
