EOS Bodies / Re: 7D Mark-II as an action oriented DSLR
« on: June 13, 2014, 08:26:12 AM »
22MP, 8-10fps, equal DR like the 70D, Dual pixel AF, Dual card slots, better iso performance like the 5D3.

Price: 2500-3000 €

My Japanese girlfriends rumor that the price will be quite high (about 3000-3500€), like the 5D Mark III at startup. I do not hope that this will happen, but Canon is known to drain your money for "pro" equipment

Software & Accessories / Pol-Filter for 24mm lens
« on: June 11, 2014, 04:37:58 PM »
Hi Everybody!

As I could not wait until the new 16-35mm 4.0 Canon appears on the market (trip to Greece next wekk), I will first fetch the Canon 2.8 IS 24mm lens.
As my old polarization filter has some scratches, I need a new one.

I looked up, B&W and Hoya are the favourites.  Maybe in an slim version.

As the B+W Pol Cir Käsemann XS-Pro Digital MRC nano 58mm is nearly as expensive an the Hoya Pro1, I would prefer the German product.
Does the lens hood still hold on the Filter?
Any other suggestions of Pol filters?

Ok, I found one dealer, who sells the Voigtländer 20mm.
What would you do to shoot landscaper?

Canon 24mm 2.8 IS and Voigtlander 20mm 3.5
or wait for the new Canon 16-35 4.0 ?

Lenses / Looking for an wideangle lens about 20mm
« on: June 08, 2014, 04:35:12 AM »
For my crop Cameras I own the Tokina 12-24mm 4.0. But I need an wideangle lens for my 6D too. The 24mm 2.8 IS from Canon is ordered. But I´d like to get one about 20mm too....

But which one? An 2000€ prime is to expensive. The highest price is 1000-1200€, I´d like to spend for ist.
The Sigma 20mm?
Or should I wait for the 16-35mm 4.0 from Canon and send the 24mm back?


Does anybody know, how the old 17-35mm L USM zoom lens performs on the 6D? I still own one - bought about 20years ago.

Please give me your advice!

Thanks
Daniela

Software & Accessories / Which Software to convert Raw files?
« on: May 27, 2014, 03:27:13 PM »
Hi!

Some software advice needed, please:
Which is an very good software to convert the 6D files to jpeg?
I heared of the DXO Optics program, with optical modules for lens-cam combinations.
Should I buy it (now just 99€ in Germany), or continue using the Canon DPP?
Are there such modules existing for lightroom too?

Thanks
Daniela

And that's all that really matters.   8)

the only negative thing is that the battery is quite old (2010) and runs out of energy after 100 shots. and the Canon support says: impossible. no older battery then 2013... but mie is 2010.... :-(

There is an blue field on the bottom. There is printed 2010 and the month (Canon support told me)

How do you know the battery is 2010?  I never checked mine nor do I know how to.

Lighting / New flash for eos 6d?
« on: May 22, 2014, 07:51:23 AM »
Sorry, guys! another question: 8)

I own an 550ex AND AN 540Ex (for the old Eos 3 and 1V) flash and new, a Eos 6D.

Can I feel an big improvement when i buy an 430 EX-II or an 600EX-RT? Or an third party flash?

If I would buy one of these new flashes, what do I need to use the flash off the camera? Do i need an wireless transmitter ? the shop assistant told me to buy an 300€ transmitter. Or is there an another third party transmitter equal to it?

Lenses / Primelens 24mm for landscape?
« on: May 22, 2014, 07:34:27 AM »
I am looking for am prime lens (<800€) to shoot landscape. Cam is an Eos 6D.
I own an Tokina 4 12-24 and the Canon 28-70 2.8L.
Would the 24mm 2.8 Canon lens a good choice?Other suggestions?

Thanks

Are the new generation of flashes much better? What I would be interested, is the wireless function to get the flash off the camera.
I own an cable for that, but this does not work sufficient. (Or: The more true answer ist, that I am not trained enough to use it correctly)

What I will look for in some time, is an ring-flash with a lot of heads, like nikon has.

Thank, thanks, thanks!!!

I bought it today. No grip. 2x32GB Extreme pro

Just one question: Which flash? I own the 550EX. The shop assistens told me to buy an 430 or 580. Are they so much better?

42
Much thanks for all postings!
I own following lenses for landscapes: 12-24 4 Tokina, Canon 28-70 2.8L, 50mm 1.8 (the others are >70mm)
I am looking to get an 24mm 2.8, or are there other lenses that i should buy? (I do not have the money to get an Zeiss or another extraordinary expensive lenses.)

What unfocused said.

Plus, while I have a gripped 5d3 and love the grip, why are you needing a grip? Or is it because you want the dual batteries so you don't have to change in the middle of a field somewhere?

As for the 6D, it's a great camera from everything I've heard. The center AF point is very good, although the rest are meh.

As for memory card, from what I recall, 6D supports up to UHS-1. So pick a card that has UHS-1 support, and then pick you're preferred brand & speed.



Last bit, landscapes. You can do them without a tripod, depending on your style, but if you are going to end up being rather serious about them you should definitely consider a good quality tripod, which will run you $500-600 and up. But, if you just sorta have an interest, leave that for another time. Also get a cable release and learn about mirror lockup.


I was told to buy an grip, because the 6D´s GPS drains the batteries quite much. Better take an exchance battery in my backpack without an grip?

Thanks... wil buy an UHS-I.
I own an Manfrotto 055XProb with an good 3 way head and an Sirui N-2204 carbon tripod. My 7D with my 100-400 oder 70-200 2.8 are very stable on thess tripods. I own an wireless shutter release too

Hi!

As I want to start shooting landscape, I want to buy an FF SLR in the next days for our pre-summer holidays.

As there will be an rumored FF body this year, I do not want to an expersive one (5D Mark 3). I do prefer the 6D.

My questions are:
- Buy the 6D, or wait until the new appears (I know, Guys.... Then I do never buy a new body as there will always be an successor.... But will the new FF body around the corner?)?

- Which Third-party grip to buy? (NOT the original Canon, as it is to expernsive).

- Which card to store (Transcend R95 SDXC 64GB, UHS-I U3 (TS64GSDU3) good choice?) Will an  UHS-I U3 work with the 6D?

And: How is it to work with the small AF-Area? The few AF points are quite grouped around the Center AF.

Thanks for all of your replies
Dani
