EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 6D True High ISO King?
« on: August 23, 2014, 07:15:18 PM »
Until then, comment likes "6D center AF point works better than 5D III in low light" is just an imagination.

Even though I'm rather critical with the 6d and Canon marketing, they do say that the 5d3 works up to -2lv, the 6d at half this light. I really doubt there is absolutely nothing to it, the question is if it's really a full stop, how slow the cameras are to af at min. light and how often these situations occur.

I was reminded of an argument not a long time ago that some people can't accept that a lower-priced camera can have a better sensor than its significantly more expensive sibling (in the *same generation).  ::)

Nothing unusual about that, it's the complete package that counts, and of course Canon (and every other manufacturer) will take great care that more money means better overall performance. If you have special needs you can sidestep this system (like landscape with the 6d), but you cannot really escape the logic.

Last not least, if you don't want to read anything about 5d3 vs. 6d don't look at a "6D True High ISO King" thread :-p

I think you are oversimplifying things "you can sidestep this system (like landscape with the 6d), but you cannot really escape the logic".  Is it logical to just take a camera based on your needs?  Again, if you think 6D isn't the "best" for you then why choose it?  You should have bought 5D3 where you are better served.  You said "it's the complete package that counts".  Now, that's not being logical.  That's a statement that is too subjective.  My point is, everybody has a need that is better served by something else as you yourself mentioned.  Choosing a system based on your need, now that is what we can call logical.  The point is, for those guys who doesn't need the best AF but needs the cleanest high ISO IQ, then 6D is really the King.  Of course, it might be a different case for you so 6D might not be the King for you.  Isn't that logical?  Are we escaping the logic in any way?  ::)

Here we go again... 5D3 vs 6D.  I was reminded of an argument not a long time ago that some people can't accept that a lower-priced camera can have a better sensor than its significantly more expensive sibling (in the *same generation).   ::)

Lenses / Re: A New Pancake Lens? [CR1]
« on: August 23, 2014, 12:34:13 PM »
I would love to have 20mm pancake on FF

and an 85 (even a 70 will do).  Just imagine a 20/40/85 pancake combo....  It'll be awesome with my 6D.

I wonder how good will be a Canon 6D with dual ISO.   ;)

Don't worry, they'll come soon enough.  If you can't wait, feel free to switch to Nikon.  You might want to try 6D first for the meantime.  It's not as high-DR/MP as the D810 but it's the best Canon can offer if you're looking for IQ/MP.

I think I said I own a 1DX. Why would I want to downgrade? You may love the 6D, but it's already out of date.

My 1DX is very, very close to being out of date for the simple reason of Canon wishing to sustain their professional channels. This is their prerogative.

They could have a new high MP unit in the channels NOW. They could have an innovative mirrorless body in the channels NOW.

Instead, they announced new PowerShots? A lame cloud storage system? A partnership with MS? A new iteration of DPP?

You may be happy with these new announcements, and that is your right.

I am not.

For the record, 6D, 5D3 and 1DX isn't out of date.  Your skills will determine mostly if something is out of date or not.  And photography is not all about MP nor AF nor DR.  If you want the latest tech, maybe you should wait till photokina.  Who knows, Canon might make you happy, finally...

Just used it in slight rain once with a 24-105L and didn't have any problem.  For bad weather/water environments, I use mostly my G11 with underwater casing.

This is sad.

More PowerShots?

Does anyone else not think Canon is fully asleep at the wheel?

I'm a 1DX owner for goodness sake. Where is high MP? Where is innovative mirrorless? Where is any innovation at all?

Please spare me the "it's coming" hooey. There is very little coming. They are in turmoil internally selling into their installed base and ignoring the competition.

Don't worry, they'll come soon enough.  If you can't wait, feel free to switch to Nikon.  You might want to try 6D first for the meantime.  It's not as high-DR/MP as the D810 but it's the best Canon can offer if you're looking for IQ/MP.

The 6D? what the hell?

Yup.  I've said it.  It's not 5D3 nor 1DX.  That is if you're not considering AF.  If you're shooting stationary (to very slow moving) objects @ apertures not bigger than F2.8 then 6D will give you the best IQ (Moire excluded) among Canon FFs.  You can swear a lot more but that's the reality.

The pricing for the SX520 seems over priced compared to the competition.  The Panasonic FZ70 has a 20-1200mm f2.8-f5.9 lens vs the SX520 with 24-1000mm f3.4-6.0.  The FZ70 also comes with an EVF and 1080p60 video, both of which are missing on the SX520.  The FZ70 came out at the same list price as the SX520 although you can get it for less than $300 now. 

Both of these models seem like they are too little and too late to market.  This doesn't bode well for the SX60.

Even the SX50 outperforms FZ70 continuous AF.  Why won't it bode well for SX60?  SX50 is even sharper.

Even in the noise department, your FZ70 pales in comparison.

There goes Canon again beating their chest.

How many video cameras were Canon at FIFA this year? Oh... NONE :P

Who's one of the MAJOR SPONSORS of FIFA?  ::)

Except for some unnatural colors (purely subjective), I love most of the shots.  Inspiring as you said...   Thanks for showing us.  It's time to pack again my gears.  :)

EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: 45x Zoom for Waterproof Camera
« on: July 19, 2014, 09:08:21 PM »
That last thing you need if you are under water is a zoom. What you want is super-wide and stabilized and low noise.

Waterproof doesn't mean it's only for underwater.  There are lots of scenarios where it's very useful.  That said, it must be as small as the D30 series...
