EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: "Downgrading" for a very specific reason
« on: October 15, 2013, 03:19:48 AM »
I find the color reproduction of the 1dx much better than the 5d iii. It's definitely my favorite.
As for the one who said if you can't get a good photo with a 450d and good glass you're not a good photographer.... Try shooting a gig with one. And see just how good ISO 1600 is on it

Software & Accessories / Re: Cheap UV filters: are they worth it?
« on: October 11, 2013, 02:20:08 PM »
Unless you are using film, there is no need to use UV filters if you are careful and keep the lens cap on when you're not using it.
Tell that to the guy who hit my 16-35 II with his bass guitar head.
Luckily, it popped the filter, not my front element.
For what I do, there's careful, and there's getting the shot. I prefer the latter while protecting my equipment

OK, it's done.  It doesn't matter how much time it took, how much it cost or what the motivation was.  Ive is a
very respected designer and Leica is very much a boutique brand.  I'm sure reflections of this motif will show up
in future Leica products and Leicaphiles - or Leicaphobes - will snap them up.  There aren't too many other examples of camera companies coming up with "leading edge" designs and most cameras look like most cameras.
It might be an ergonomic problem - after all, if you put a car design in a wind tunnel to minimize drag, the logo
on the front doesn't make a whole lot of difference. 

An earlier post said they thought this will sell for a quarter mil,  Southeby's estimates $500-750K.  I'm betting some Saudi prince, Russian tycoon or Chinese industrialist pays over a mil and we'll never hear of it again.
There's the difference between an innovative design and a camera so gross looking they'd have to pay me $500-750k to use it.

Again, great images. What lenses do you use? It seems to me that you are pushing your wide angels as close to the limit of their comfort zone as you can get.
My holy three are the 16-35 2.8 II, sigma 35 and Canon 85 1.8. I'd like to use 50 more but the 1.4 is a dog

Well. I've been an Apple fan since the Mac Plus, but I've drained pasta in better-looking hardware than that Leica.

Looks like Apple need some design lessons from Fuji.
If I wanted a camera that looked like an mp3 dock, I'd buy a samsung NX

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Nikon D610 yes D600 minor upgrade!

The nasty little marketing elves at retailers will try to make hay with this, especially through the "holiday" shopping season.

Personally, it means nothing to me.

And, I'm guessing it goes largely unnoticed at Canon.
The only hay I'll be making with this is "it's not broken like the old one".
I'd imagine canon are creasing up about it, and I'm a nice little marketing elf, thanks very much

Canon General / Re: Irritating photography advice

She knows I don't need any more resolution, and the only lenses I was now are the 1.2s...I can have them next year, apparently

I use these myself. On the 5diii with latest firmware this is one of the few batteries (3rd party) that work properly. They do register and provide info.
They seem to have good longevity (I can get them to 600+ shots with flash and VERY heavy LCD use)  which is about what the canon batteries give, but I believe they have a longer warranty.

Plus, I haven't lost one in my bag yet, unlike the canon batteries ;)

The 1DX is an unnecessary upgrade from the 5D III no matter WHAT you shoot

 for me that is true...  or should I say for me that is true for the wife.

hahaha a happy wife, a happy life =)
My happy wife is happy because I can't upgrade from the 1DX, and therefore has put a stop to my whining ;)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Is ff metering more aggressive than crop?
« on: October 07, 2013, 03:47:23 PM »
While it's true the RGB metering helps a lot, it's still no good at guessing what I want to be exposed precisely.
With AF spot I can meter precisely every time.

I also wonder if they did with the exposure chip like they did with the AF chip between the 60D and 6D- kept it the same size while scaling up everything else like the mirror and sensor.
For example, the 9 point af covers most of a crop vf. On the FF, a 9 point sensor mostly fills the middle. I wonder if it's the same with the metering chip
