EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 6D viewfinder too big ?
« on: April 24, 2013, 12:20:14 AM »
going from 550d to 5D3 i noticed right away how awesome the view is never did i say that its to big. When i look in the 550d now it feels like a toy way to small i don't even know how i used it before.

It's curious why, if they're updating bodies in their Service Centers with this new firmware, they haven't already posted it on their website. I have a big shoot coming up this week, and would have liked to run the camera through its paces with this new code. Oh well.
A very valid point. One can hand off a Beta, but you would not update somebody's software (or firmware) without their consent. In fact if a company updated somebody's software without their consent even if it was released, they could be sued...

That said, I am sure there are new versions are in the wild. There has to be a larger group doing a Beta test before release. If they shifted the date till the end of this month, there has to be a reason to re-validate the working of a fix (or three).
Canon always updates firmware when its is sent in.

yea someone will sue Canon for giving them the ability to AF at F8.

RAW will always look better and if you need JPG cant you just make them with DPP where it makes the same JPG picture as what the camera would?

why am i excited for a 5dm3 firmware update when i wont even use the new things in it.

this definitely means that the APSC sensor in the 7DII has to be improved or who would buy the same sensor since the 550d/7d when the 7D is almost a perfect camera and i think this is why they are taking there time. Or are they just going add a few more MP and say that makes it better.

Canon General / Re: Do you see lenses when you check the time?

To paraphrase a man who did not make it through military basic training with me:

My lenses don't tell military time, sir.

Whats military time?

I think that is time expressed in four digit number based on 24h time reference... eg 6pm is (18:00 for most of European and other countries anyway) 1800 in military time... I think it saves some time, but mostly eliminates some misunderstanding (6am would be 0600)

This is turning a bit into a Who lives in US and who in EU thread :)

I know both since i came from Europe, just thought military time was the same and didn't know why they called it military time.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon's Roadmap for 2013 [CR2]

do you guys think the new 100-400 will again be with this push zoom?

how big of a difference is the 1000x compared to this one? i never used a CF card before i just have a 128gb lexar sd card,

has canon said anything about this yet?

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: 4K 15 FPS
« on: December 13, 2012, 03:54:49 PM »
24 isn't choppy, its the most normal looking to the eye.  60fps viewed on a screen with a high enough refresh rate looks more fluid like a home video... almost looks worse.  That's subjective though I guess.
Hollywood film makers are very good at concealing the limitations of 24 fps. I still think it is nonsesense to think of 24fps as any more "normal looking to the eye" than what poor AM radio is to the ear: it may be what we are used to, but it is a far cry from reality.
4K at 15 fps is pointless.
Played back at normal speed for normal scenes, I tend to agree.


Yea that's why they want to record/show films in 48fps like the hobbit.

Canon needs 6 months to add 2 things to the firmware? how long did it take them to even build the full mark 3 firmware? They probably have all this working already just delaying it for some reason.
