PowerShot / Re: For DH, need recommendations
« on: February 28, 2013, 04:33:01 PM »
Check this one out:
http://www.getolympus.com/us/en/digitalcameras/tough/tg-2-ihs.html

Not easy to destroy. Small and perfect for biking. Fast 2.0 lens. Macro mode for flowers. Taking photos and filming in rain, snow, under water, you name it!

And yes, it films in 1080p. Under water.

PowerShot / Re: P&S - Faster lens or bigger sensor?
« on: February 28, 2013, 12:53:27 PM »
Well, compared to your average P&S, they ARE more complex. I do not mind it, but there are people who do. And among these people are notably my wife and all my friends's wives (told you I was biased). :)
My wife actually prefer automode on our DSLR, as she hates lag and poor AF.

The answer is: fast and accurate Autofocus, that is sensitive and do not hunt in bad light.
For a P&S, this will be the thing making or breaking the pictures.

Back to topic, a bigger sensor (by 2x), equals a stop faster lens. All things equal (noise processing etc.) it should always be able to have a stop higher ISO with same noise, thus enabling same short shutter speeds as the brighter lens. But it will always have more flexibility at base ISO.

In reality, this scenario is very rare, so go with whatever feels right. There are more things to a camera. Color output, flash, handling/ergonomics and so on...

But my (admittedly biased) view of wives in general, they value responsiveness, simplicity and end IQ. So, G1X with large sensor, but complicated controls and slow AF would maybe not be a good buy, even if it has a large sensor and good IQ. :)

EOS Bodies / Re: New DSLR at the End of March [CR2]

Oh, if this is back to 50D with AFMA and metal body, I might choose this one over a 7D (depends on AF really). Hope it is available shortly after announced, so we don't have to wait until summer to get it.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Can't they make 28mm F1.4

Not sure if you have seen it or used it, but sigma has a 28mm/1.8 for FF too. One could try THAT one with NEX and Metabones to get a 28mm/1.3 lens equivalent? Metabones claims they are compatible with Sigmas for EF.

Lens is 449$ and Speed Boster is 600$, so still cheaper than Zeiss.

Unfortunatly, no long glass is available yet for micro 4/3 :(


Actually, this is not true. Both Olympus and Panasonic have telephoto zooms for MFT. 75-300 and 100-300 respectively. Granted, they are not very bright, nor L class optics, but they DO exist.

No need to be sorry for loving 28mm. (unless you mean sorry that the 1.4 does not exist) :)
It is all up to your shooting style.

If you are shooting crop, then Sigma is there for , as already mentioned.
But for FF, I guess you have to put your hopes to Tamron, that have said they will go for fast primes next.
If you have a NEX, you could try the EF50/1.8 or EF28/2.8 with Metabones adapter?

Nikon J1 with 10-30 VR is available for 397$ at B&H now...
Fast autofocus, ok IQ, good for filming. Slo-mo could be nice too. :)

EOS-M / Re: The Next EOS M? [CR1]

An entry level EOS M system camera could be coming in early 2014 and sit in the sub $500 category.

The present EOS M is sub-entry level. What could Canon remove to make the camera more basic ???

Lol  :) cardboard box with a sensor?

No, but as I have suggested in another thread, a mirrorless EOS Rebel T4/1200D with EOS-M mount and EVF would do it. Easy money for Canon.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Spec List [CR2]
« on: February 20, 2013, 04:52:17 PM »
The build quality would definitely suffer if built that way. Having fragile parts that are not protected does not sound like something I'd personally want as it somewhat makes the durable body pointless. External transmitters are for that kind of purposes and if they break, you don't necessarily need to get your camera body fixed.
Well, if they can make mobile phones shock proof with WiFi and 3/4G antennas in a much smaller body, it should be definately possible in the brick that is a 7D(2). :)

How hard can it be?

EOS-M / Re: Future EOS-M Lenses

Better yet...just buy an Olympus OMD ...it actually focuses, has a viewfinder and lots of small fast primes AND zooms?
TODAY!  8)

Yes, but OM-D lacks a certain criteria essential to many of this forum...it is not a Canon...  ;D
But I do agree. Although I would rather have the Panasonic GF form factor (as small as possible).
That is also why I would like more pancake lenses.

EOS-M / Re: Future EOS-M Lenses

More pancake lenses!
UWA primes, like 10mm, 14mm, 18mm.
Something like the pancake zoom that MFT has.

And Tamron will probably come with a native 17-250mm EOS-M 3.5-5.6 VC... :)

You should definately get a waterproof P&S and bring it along! I did, and gave it to my wife or my son depending on the attraction. They got some shots I never did, and I had a backup camera if mine would fail (30D with 17-50 lens). Also, they take almost no space in your bag.

That way, your spouse can take pics of you from the side, and you can take pics while in the ride, and not worry about your DSLR.

I have had good experiences with Olympus offerings in Waterproof P&S.

All in all, it was a great day, and to be able to choose from two cameras pics was luxury when I came home.
