Reuters Full Focus best of 2013 was even more lopsided to Canon: A collection of the years's best 93 pictures.
80% of the pictures within the collection were taken with Canon cameras. The Canon 5D Mk3 and the Canon 1DX were the most popular each with 27 photos in the top 93. (29% each, 58% together) The Canon 1DMkIV had 11. What totally blew me away was that Nikon as a camera was only used for 11 pictures in the collection of the top 93.
Here is the full list by camera manufacturer and model:
1. Canon 5D Mark III 27 pictures
2. Canon EOS 1DX 27 pictures
3. Canon EOS 1D Mark IV 11 pictures.
4. Canon 5D Mark II 7 pictures
5. Canon EOS 1D Mark IIII 3 pictures
6. Camera with two photos in the collection:
a. Canon 7D
b. Nikon D3s
c. Nikon D4
d. Nikon D300S
e. Nikon D3
7 . Cameras with one photo in the collection:
Canon EOS 1D Mark II.
Canon EOS 1D Mark II N
Canon EOS rebel T3
GoPro Hero II
Thanks for sharing. The image with the mother giving birth is the one that will stay with me for days.
I don't care much which camera model they are using. What's interesting is the dominant number of images shot with a 70-200 and 16-35. I expected the 70-200 but I was surprised with how many images there are either shot with 16-35 or 24mm prime. If the 16-35 lens is popular with press photographers as well as landscape photographer one would think that a 14-24 lens would be one of Canon's top priorities. Or am I looking at it the wrong way, is it because it's so popular that they don't think it needs a replacement?
Interesting ... people are getting excited over stats from less than 60 camera users and coming to the conclusion that one camera is better than an another?
Does anyone but me find it bizarre that the APS-c version is actually wider than the full-frame version? If they could make this one 16mm, it seems like they could have made the full-frame version 24mm.
Nope, just you...
I'm sure it will have something to do with optic design, given the fact that canon only made a 28-300 too. Also, 16mm = 25.6mm on FF, which is closer to 28 than 24 in FF equivalent (just)!
OK...I have a 5DMarkIII running Firmware Version 1.2.1. I have never used Magic Lantern. I did spend about $3400 on my camera body (yes, I was an early adopter, but was able to sell my 5DMarkII for $2000 so I guess it evened out), and I do not want do ruin it as it is an expensive piece of hardware in my life.
1. Is ML easy to install and use?
2. Can I switch back and forth between ML and My Canon OS?
3. Can anyone direct me to a site where someone has solid experience and simple information (for dummies) on how to set your 5DMarkIII up and use the software to its fullest.
4. Have users destroyed their camera when installing of using this software.
Seems like there are a lot of benefits....but if I do something to the camera and it is not repairable ....I might have to kill myself.
Be cautioned if you have a 5D3.
ML is still very alpha for the Canon 5D3.
1. If you install Magic Lantern on your 5D3, you will set a firmware bootflag on the camera, that is NOT removable. At this time, it is a permanent change to your camera
2. It seems associated with this flag, that the boot times and wake up times can be significantly increased on your camera, I'm hearing up to like 2-3 seconds I believe. This is a deal breaker for some folks. This does NOT seem to be something that you can reverse.
The problems I mentioned above, will remain on your 5D Mark III even if you remove the Magic Lantern software. So, please be advised.
That being said, I've been following ML forums and all things about them and I'm HUGELY impressed. I really, really hope they can overcome these 2x issues with the 5D3 so I can feel comfortable with using ML on my camera. I'm anxious to start shooting RAW video with my 5D3...and to explore all these other cool options with stills photography.
But at this time, since I have only one 5D3, I am holding off putting ML on my camera.
Caveat Emptor as they say.
