Canon General / Re: Which eye do you shoot with?
« on: March 14, 2013, 09:43:49 AM »
Shoot with left eye . . . literally.

Used to drive my grandfather crazy that I'd pull up a .22 and rock my head across it to aim (right-handed).

Do the same with the camera now that I think about it.

As for 2-eyes vs 1-eye, only shoot with the right one open if I'm trying to track something.

$3500-$4000 range will be fine IF the 70D ends up being a 'replacement' for the 7D/50D . . . especially price-wise.

I highly suspect that, once these two are announced that rebel owners are going to seriously agonize over what to purchase when the 7D becomes absurdly cheap, vs. new, more expensive cameras. (think new 5DmkII under $1500)

Lenses / Re: Any difference bw used and new 24-105mm lens?
« on: March 05, 2013, 08:24:10 AM »
Personally, I'd pony up for FoCal pro, and check the two for deviance in adjustments at tight and wide, then keep the more accurate one.

So far, my used (from LensRentals) lenses have consistently in need of VERY LITTLE to NO adjustment.  This is just an assumption, but I think they must keep a close eye on testing/sending out their lenses for calibration?

I have a 60D and a 5DmkII, seriously . . . all we need is digicV, that dual MFA . . . and maybe a touch of better usable high-iso.

For all the moaning about this camera, it's all come from people that didn't buy/use it.

Lenses / Re: Best Value "Normal" Lens for 6d?
« on: February 27, 2013, 11:27:15 AM »
Best value is the kit lens 24-105...

Since the OP is talking about having paid for a 6D, I agree 100%.

On that same lines, I don't think the 50mm 1.8 is really that good for 'best value' since the 1.4 is much better . . .

It's all how you define value.  The 70-200mm 2.8 IS is a GREAT value, when talking about the 200mm L 2.0 IS :D

Their color checker passport software is terrible on the mac.

Okay, so now we're just making stuff up and printing it?

Fine, me too:
The EOS Me is named as such because it's actually runs on windows Me.  Microsoft is going to run Nikon off the road like they did with the iPod . . . and the iPad/Android Tablets . . . and phones.

And puppies, free puppies for every camera buyer.

Hey this is easy, let's all get together and publish this stuff!

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Spec List [CR2]
« on: February 19, 2013, 08:39:30 AM »
The spec list make the 5D3 look "inferior"…other than the sensor…
And this makes the 6D look pointless..
Isn't the smaller the number the higher end the camera?
These are features that should've been in their flagship FF cameras from day 1.

Compare the 7D and 5DmkII

I already like Canon Rumors and I don't need Facebook to prove that, beside I do not like using FB

Maybe if everyone un-friends facebook, it'll just go away.  ;D

I'm pretty sure that THIS is how the trolls got in to start with.  Uninvited as a frequent reader.

Dang, for a second there I confused price drop with a reasonable price.

What would YOU call a reasonable price?  Are there other high-res laptops selling for less?

Maybe you meant the air:
$912 Core i5 1.70GHz 4GB RAM 64GB Storage (flash)
Samsung . . . closest thing I could find is $849.99 NP540U3C-A01UB, but it does have a spinning disk drive . . . $800 on sale . .  oh hey, it has Windows 8, so you have to install Linux Mint yourself  ;D

Now you are being irrational and commenting for the sake of being argumentative without being logical ... why would people want to read about Pope's resignation on Canon  rumors?
However, computers are very much a part of digital photography ... hence the need to know about any good offers out there.

Aw crap, now I'm curious whether the Pope is a Canon or Nikon guy, sadly, google didn't help :(

There are several threads on this forum started asking about gear and laptops.  Saying this isn't pertinent while providing snarky comments isn't really contributing to even the forum . . . let alone the main page.

Let's just shutter the site since you weren't currently in the market for this particular item.

Of note: apple this morning released the refreshed processors and has cut the (MSRP) prices on some of the laptops

I'm not saying this is at all a bad deal, just explaining the deeper discount; when the previous models sell out, they're usually gone quickly.

Also, applecare on laptops is *really* worth it, and it 'stays with the computer' so if you like to flip your laptops every year or two because you want the newer model before price drop, you can market your old one as 'under warranty'.
