EOS Bodies / Re: 5D III AEB still limited to 3?
« on: March 21, 2012, 10:32:02 AM »
Does anyone know if you have more flexibility setting the points the AEB are taken at? For example, with 7D you can do -1, 0, +1, or -2, 0 +2.
Will the 5D let you do -2, -1, 0, +1.33 or other combinations?

I think the weather sealing and dynamic range increase (if there is any) would make this a much better landscape camera than the 5DII.

It would be really nice to have that really low iso for landscape work that needs a ND filter. It would also be great for balancing daylight with flash.

I was really excited for this camera until I saw the price.
Dual memory cards is something I need and I would have paid $2900 for those new specs, but for $3500 it's going to need to have weather sealing and a few more stops of DR for me to reconsider.

I'd just like to add another recommendation to others for f-stop backpacks. I have the Satori and love it. For weddings I can pack my main camera, 5 lenses, 5 flashes, and all the accessories like cards and batteries and a snack. I can also strap 3 light stands to the outside of it. For backcountry camping trips I bought the smaller ICU to put my camera, wide angle lens, and pano tripod head inside. The rest of the pack can be filled with food, clothes, rain jacket, etc and I can strap my tripod, tent, and sleeping bag and pad to the outside.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Split? 5D X & 5D Mark III [CR1]

why shoot sRaw? just shoot raw and downsize.. I never understood shooting at a quality less then your camera could provide..

Images would take up more space on memory cards, resulting in more memory card changes during a shoot. Images would take more time to download, then time spent downsampling and converting to a new file and erasing the original. Time is money...

45mp would be amazing for landscapes. I only hope that it has sRAW at sizes that would be ideal for weddings (15-18mp)

I was hoping this camera would have a huge increase in dynamic range, but after looking at the image of the sprinter in the starting blocks, it doesn't look like that is the case. Canon has a long way to go to catch up with Nikon in terms of DR.

Lenses / Re: Canon Rebates Extended Until March 3, 2012?

I'm guessing that since the 5d II is listed on that ad, it won't be replaced until at least after March 3rd.

When I'm using 2 cameras, the camera on my left shoulder will frequently have the mode dial change. Since what I'm shooting are usually fleeting moments, having the mode dial change usually ruins the shot. For the sake of professionals who need to get the shot, I hope they add the dial locks.

It's funny, I took a 7D on safari along with the two 1Ds bodies. And half the time I would reach for the 7D I would try and take a shot and curse that the mode dial had changed in the vehicle. 1Ds has buttons. Rarely a problem with landscape, but definitely with nature I would have welcomed a lock function. Horses for courses....

Not necessarily... A few years ago I was in england on vacation and just got the 50D (long gone now)... I was taking some pictures around some castles... and as I was walking, the camera bumping against my side, the f#*&# mode dial switched, I wasn't checking the dial, stupidly assuming it was the same that I left it as... Long story short, I DID notice my images were awful, not happy, didn't know what was wrong, thought my card was screwing up... tried this, tried that, in a panic, formatted the card, still no avail... lost all my pictures up till then.. I eventually figured it out... But i've been bitter with that F#*#(*@ mode dial ever since with my 7D and 5d2... I couldn't have been happier when canon introduced the lock... I do a lot of traveling, walking with my cameras and the dial does get bumped and if you dont train yourself to look at the dial every now and then, you can get quite different results than your expecting...
Huh.  You learn something new everyday.  I really never thought it was a problem.  Thanks for the education, guys.  +1 to each of you for the new perspective.

I'm still choosing to have it removed, though.  :P

Can someone explain why the EXIF of the image of the prototype camera matters?  Is it a magic prototype camera that can take pictures of itself from odd angles?  Do we think the purported Canon employee had a second prototype camera and handed it to a stranger to take a picture of the first prototype camera to post on the Internet?
I was wondering the same thing myself...

Changing the dial, even on a tripod, is enough to set the frames off by a few pixels. It probably doesn't matter for a 4x6, but if you ever make large gallery prints for a client, it would require some fixing.

...- include 7 AEB i mean come on 3 on a high end bosy is just silly.
- Put in a wireless flash control I mean come on the 600D can wireless control multiple speedlights.

+1: 3 AEB hurts me like anything: Canon needs to stop being over protective of it's 1D line... it should be able to stand on its own!  >:(


So shoot "manual".

Then you have no AEB limit.

I can't wait to find out if it was a good idea to pass up the $1,999 5D2 deal on B&H.

I'm curious to see what changes in the 85L, but at the same time I dread it because that means I will probably want to sell mine and get the new one.

Is it possible these are for cine lenses?

Is there any quality difference between the ones made in Japan (A) and the ones made in the Phillippines (U)?

That is what carbon fiber tripods are for. I spent what was necessary to get a Gitzo after my 8lb tripod was too much for multiday trips up 4,000 feet of vert. It's now down to 2lbs.

Man, I would love a baby 1DX. Put the 1DX sensor in the body of a 7D (same AF, same FPS, same size and build quality) for less than $4k and I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

So would I! I'd love to get a camera like that – especially as a landscape shooter who often is in the mountains. I would happily trade in some Megapixels for very good ISO performance (clean up to at least ISO 6400) because I quite often have to shoot handheld (sturdy tripods are wonderful when you don't have to carry them through the mountains) and under weather conditions where you don't want to set up your tripod first (wind, rain, snow). For the same reasons I would not want a body with lesser weather sealing than the 7D.
