EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Transition from Nikon to Canon
« on: February 22, 2013, 11:16:13 PM »
How tight is the budget? 
There are some nice images on your Flickr photo stream, I guess my only question would be what's holding you back with the d90 that you think will improve with a 60d?
Thank you for your precise opinion.
I think d90 is an excellent camera and I don't think 60d would increase my skills photographically.
But I made my decision for some reasons I a have mentioned and the investment on nikon lenses was very little as well.

And you are right!! budget is very tight and under USD 850 for body and a initial lens.


Thank you everyone for your informative views. It really helped me a lot

If I were on your shoes, it'll be a 5Dc + 40mm / 50mm.  If I can only turn back time...

I would be very excited... hell I'd be jumping up and down if Canon had released a 70d with these specs.

and price...

Switching isn't the answer.  You can use any of the two systems and get better at photography.  If you really want a full frame, go for a second-hand D700 should you decide to stick with Nikon.  If you really want Canon, go for a 5Dc if your budget doesn't permit you or a 5D2.  Don't go for a 60D or 650D because they're not really what you're aiming for.  Just go for an FF camera ASAP so you'll learn how to shoot with it as soon as possible.  Framing is a little bit different from an APS-C aside from the benefits of a larger sensor.

It looks like everybody compares D7100 with 7D2 rumors but in my opinion this camera should be competition to 70D ... Specs are really interesting with very nice price tag but we will see how it performs in the real world situations. I'm especially interested in reviews of ISO performance, f/8 center point AF and how IQ is affected by missing low pass filter.

I would really like to see some Nikon features to become standard in Canon enthusiasts level cameras as well. For example 100% viewfinder and 2 SD card slots.

I bet 70D will have an 11 or 9 points AF, 1 SD card slot, smaller and priced almost the same as D7100.  Viewfinder will be around 95-97%.  :(

PowerShot Cameras / Re: Any rumors about the G16?
« on: February 21, 2013, 01:08:18 AM »
Hey I'm new to the forum and after doing a search couldn't find anything regarding a possible release date or specs for the G16. The reason why I'm interested in the G16 is that the RX100 is too expensive and I love the G15 just wish it had a larger sensor. I'm hoping that the G16 is exactly that.. Any info would be great. Thanks.

There's already a G1X.  I don't think G16 will introduce a bigger sensor.

meanwhile, hopefully, this will bring down 7D2's initial price a little bit.  hopefully again, the CR2 specs isn't just a hoax.

At least Canon admits its fault when warranted (even if it took some time)... unlike some others... :)

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Spec List [CR2]
« on: February 19, 2013, 09:40:47 PM »
If 7D2's ISO3200 IQ is better or almost the same as 7D's ISO400, I think I'll go for this rather than 6D.

Lighting / Re: Starter off-camera flash gear
« on: February 18, 2013, 09:33:06 PM »
For beginner off camera flash photography, you may want to refer to strobist.com.  That said, a cheap third-party remote flash (Yongnuo) is a very good starter kit.  Couple it with a reflector and umbrella set and you're set already to take a plunge to the beautiful world of light.  :)

I'm not so lucky with contests like these.  I hope this is one of those times it's broken.  I hope Murphy's law caught up with my luck already.  :D  6D PLEASE!!!

EOS-M / Re: EOS M Autofocus Performance Won't Improve via Firmware [CR2]
« on: February 18, 2013, 09:21:14 PM »
I'm interested with EOS M but I'll wait till their product is mature enough (it takes some time).  For now, I'll keep on shooting with my G11 when I'm not carrying my DSLR.  I hope they offer something close to M43 cameras price with good AF and a flip-screen.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Better Dynamic Range in a Camera
« on: February 18, 2013, 07:22:57 AM »
Very, very hard...  almost impossible for now but I think that won't be the case in the near future.  Sony sensors are now one of the best if not the best when it comes to good light DR.  Right now, the grass is greener for landscape photographers using Nikon D800 compared to Canon 5D3.  If you want more DR, go for Nikon.  For me, I'll stick with Canon.  I love Canon's lenses and ergonomics more than Nikon.  The grass is always greener on the other side.  :)

PowerShot / Re: Comparable Camera to the Sony RX100
« on: February 18, 2013, 01:25:06 AM »
I'm afraid, there's currently none from Canon.  If you are willing to sacrifice a little bit of IQ just to get a Canon compact, S100 or S110 is the choice.  You may also want to get the G15 which is a little bit bigger.  But really, there's nothing from Canon that can go near RX100 in terms of IQ except G1X which isn't exactly pocketable.  If you're willing to use a belt bag instead of your pocket then G1X can easily replace an RX100 and more.  Oh and there's another one I remember.  You can also get an EOS-M with a 22 mm pancake lens.  This is the best recommendation I can give you if you want a "near" pocketable alternative to RX100.

"Physically the EOS M shares similar vital statistics to its nearest rivals. The EOS M body measures 109x67x33mm and weighs 298g with battery but no lens. In comparison Sony's NEX-5N (which also shares an APS-C sensor) measures 111x59x38mm and weighs 269g with battery, making it shorter but a tad thicker. Panasonic's GX1 measures 116x68x39mm and weighs 318g including battery, making it a little wider and thicker. The Olympus E-PL5 measures 111x64x39mm and weighs 325g including battery, and is the only one of the group to include built-in stabilization.
 
 

Just for the record, Sony's Cyber-shot RX100 measures 102x58x36mm and weighs 240g with battery, making it smaller and a little lighter overall, and impressively that includes its built-in 3.6x optical zoom that's equivalent to 29-105mm. For completeness I'll finally add that Canon's own PowerShot G1 X measures 117x81x65mm and weighs 534g with battery, making it noticeably chunkier and heavier than all the models above even with its smaller sensor, although it includes a 4x / 28-112mm equivalent optical zoom.

While Sony's RX100 is undoubtedly a miracle of miniaturization, the figures above should tell you the EOS M is roughly the same size and weight as its interchangeable lens peer group when comparing bodies alone. But of course a camera without a lens only tells half the story and bigger differences emerge when you mount your optics. Canon launched the EOS M with just two native lenses, a 22mm f2.0 pancake (61x24mm, 105g, 15cm closest focusing, non-stabilized) and an 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 IS zoom (61x61mm, 210g, 25cm closest focusing distance). So fit the pancake and the EOS M becomes 57mm thick and 403g, and fit the zoom and it'll become 94mm thick and 508g."

Lenses / Re: Starting Lens Recommendation
« on: February 16, 2013, 01:50:09 AM »
Option 4 + 5Dc. Sell the rebel, your better off learning on that camera.

+1.  or better yet, just get a 50mm F1.8, 5Dc, an external flash and some off-camera flash accessories (the most basic accessories as suggested from strobist.com).  Just add lenses as you need them.
