EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 6D vs. 600D with good lenses?
« on: May 26, 2013, 11:17:38 PM »
More flexibility in low light performance and range both wide and tele with option #1. On the 600d you would have had to find a lens that is 15-65mm to match the same focal length of 24-105mm on 6D. DOF of f/4 on 6D is also compared to f/2.5 on 600D. The boost in ISO performance and overall look of the images is also better with full frame, but I wouldn't spend that kind of money for street shots if I could barely afford it, you should make the bigger purchases if you know your finances can take the hit or if it will be an investment that pays for itself short term. But of course, in the end, you still buy what you want because it's your money. ;)

Am I the only who's hoping for an ultra sensitive center point similar to the 6D AND all cross type outer points? ;)

Some people in this thread are already coming to solid conclusions about the 70D, making remarks about it's use for soccer moms, etc. I understand making guesses based on Canon's track record for releases, but still. How are you so sure the 70D will be so much like the 60D? Wasn't the 60D a radical change from it's predecessor? My nephew plays soccer but I've actually never seen a soccer mom with a 60D, 9/10 it's a rebel and then I did see one with a Nikon D3000. The use of the term soccer mom is kinda overblown in this forum. I mean, what if we saw a soccer mom with a 1DX? I guess that makes the 1DX a soccer mom camera too. I personally would rather make fun of the old tourist folk and their odd setups like this one guy I met who had a 70-300 on his film body...for a vacation camera. Whatever makes people happy I guess. O.o

Well, the surprise might be, that the price tag is even higher than ever before ... my two cents  8)
Pedro, that wouldn't be a surprise. A surprise would be if it was lower! :)

Nice. And a pleasant surprise that would definitely be.  ;)

The trolls will never be happy though.  :o

Lenses / Re: I have a weight limit....what would you bring?
« on: May 17, 2013, 06:51:06 AM »
You could always bring just your 24-105mm, known to be the perfect travel L lens, and shoot everything to an average degree from wide to telephoto. =P Saves a lot of space, weight, and helps you enjoy the trip more like a previous response stated.

That's all fine, but perhaps do what I did and buy an inexpensive tripod when you get there, even if just for the weight of your 17-40 ;) Good for night shots and at times you might want to be in your own photo to prove you were there. You can easily leave the tripod with a relative or friend before going back. I bought a tripod for 20 bucks, left it at my cousin's and when I went back I used it again. *shrug*

Lenses / Re: EF 24-70mm F2.8 L ver 2 or 3 Prime Lens
« on: May 14, 2013, 10:30:32 PM »
Depends on what you already own, and what you want to shoot. I'd be as practical as possible when starting out your set of lenses. A 24-70 II is a very practical focal length for most common use and has prime-like quality and performance. However, for about the same price you could also get a 24-105mm and that same set of primes. I'd personally still get the 24-70 II to avoid lens changes and the great sharpness from 2.8 on down. I can't sell my primes just yet because I shoot a lot of indoor events with moving subjects, but I'm going to add the 24-70 II very soon.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mark III with Continuous RAW Video Recording
« on: May 14, 2013, 04:07:04 AM »
Funny how in previous threads everyone wanted RAW video on Canon DSLRs, and now that it can be done everyone in this thread is so MEH about it, hahaha.

Great news ! ... my 5DIII has an even longer, and more productive future!

aside ... why doesn't Canon hire these guys (ML), and blow every other brand out of the water?

Because Canon only really competes with itself at the moment =P

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 40D vs. 6D AF
« on: May 11, 2013, 11:44:22 PM »
I think they're both equal for AF but in different regards. Like, 40D has better AI servo capability for action shots IMO, I didn't complain about it much back when I used one extensively. But with a 6D I can shoot a decent portrait indoors with the center point, something that was more challenging with the 40D.

Great photos, I like how you say "It's pretty cool when you feel like 6400 ISO is low".

Of course gear doesn't matter, in the future my butt will be able to take photos just like any camera. ^^ Heck... the government might already be doing it... O.o

I'm even more surprised he's not using a macro lens for some of the products like the iPhone and smaller like the iPod shuffle.

Lenses / Re: Poll: Most Wanted New Lenses of 2013.
« on: May 06, 2013, 07:41:18 PM »
Most of these lenses already exist, a 14-24mm 2.8 would fill a hole in the Canon lineup for those who want an UWA similar to Nikon's stellar 14-24. If it ever comes out and is as sharp as the current 24-70 II then I think we'd have a winner. (Yeah, that means I voted for the 14-24) If I could pick a second choice, any new 50mm would be nice since it's one of the weakest and most outdated (except for the 50L) areas in the lineup.
