EOS-M / Re: The Next EOS M [CR2]

Lenses, lenses, lenses. More lenses to match the form factor and weight without having to use an adapter. Then maybe more people will buy into it as a "system".

I might be the only one who wants a 15mm pancake ^_^ Or why stop there... an 11mm or even 10mm pancake would be surreal.

Wow, egofest 2013. Let the pixel peepers babble, and photographers continue to win awards and make money without anyone telling them it was because of DR. =P Some of you guys shouldn't be photographers, you should just apply for the engineering department for any of the competing brands.

Without mentioning anyone specific I just wanted to say that writing an essay requires good grammar, which also requires knowledge.  ;D  :P

Correct, I play with my brother's D7000 every now and then but after going through RAW files from it the colors just don't feel right especially on skin tone. As for DR Nikon really does have the edge, but it's an edge that photographers can live without. Landscape and studio guys might disagree, but if they're practical enough they can live without it too.

I still wish ML would do something with the wifi features in the 6D and 70D for video use, wireless screen for jib work would just be too awesome.

Right, this could mean anything. Like from DXO popcorn to Jump ship popcorn.

I had been hopeful. but it looks like, that canons 70d sensor isn´t worth to be my next investment.

the new live view autofocus is pretty innovative. I appreciate, that we get back AF microadjustment und an updated AF-system.

but i´m sorry to say. the sensor-quality isn´t (at least) on par with the sony sensor of a nikon D7000. even more lagging behind nikon´s D7100. 2ev less dynamic range and 1/3ev in the high-iso area. thats remarkable, when you consider, that the sony sensor of the D7000 has been released back in 2010.

well, all in all. I won´t buy the 70d.
maybe a 7d mk2 will have a competitive sensor.


And you didn't buy a Nikon because...

Right, but you're supposed to be a photographer first and an editor second. DR doesn't help you when you're actually taking your shot, though it might give you peace of mind knowing the very basics of exposing an image is no longer relevant.

That is missing the greater point. It does help you when you are taking a shot since you need to be able to judge whether a certain shot might have too much DR for the camera to handle and whether you need to get into multiple exposures or graduated filters etc., or when that is not possible which can be the case, to realize the shot may struggle to process well.

Sure better DR can be nice when it comes to rescuing blown shots or shots where the exposure wasn't quite dead on but it is mostly about much more than that. If a scene has a lot DR it may exceed the camera's ability no matter how perfectly you expose.

It's not at all just about people who make a mess of exposure all the time simply wanting to be able to escape that. It's rather little about that.

I think that's still nit picking it, and that it's relative. Shouldn't we be using our own eyes to judge whether a shot can be handled by our gear or not? I'm not by any means a landscape shooter by profession but I do shoot landscape with a set of filters from time to time. I never looked at a scene thinking I couldn't take it because it might look worse when zoomed in, or if I'd have a hard time in post. I suppose if you market your work towards other photographers it might be a bigger deal, but certainly not in the real world.

I love how people keep arguing over the sensors and how much more DR they actually need. These people aren't photographers, they're editors with cameras. Tons of DR is like a crutch for them. Wow, they screwed up their shots,, shouldn't that mean they have to live and learn from loss? Lazy. Such a worthless excuse for a petty argument.


This really doesn't make any sense.  Every good songwriter, author, or photographer is also a good editor. It's always been that way.

Also it's odd (IMHO) to excuse away technological advancement for the sake of technique. Why can't one attain both? Should we have puffed our chest at the implementation of auto-focus? Should we have held our noses at IS? After all, good technique can nullify those as well....

Right, but you're supposed to be a photographer first and an editor second. DR doesn't help you when you're actually taking your shot, though it might give you peace of mind knowing the very basics of exposing an image is no longer relevant. At least for however many stops you can recover =P No one has to hold their noses with IS btw, apparently you no longer need the breathing technique to prevent motion blur.

Happy birthday ^^ But yeah, like said above you can try looking for an alternative to Canon's repair department. You might even find someone who fixes lenses on Craigslist or get a recommendation from a local shop.
