EOS Bodies / Re: Multilayer Sensors are Coming From Canon [CR2]
« on: October 08, 2014, 04:38:39 PM »
New sensors have to be coming sooner or later.  The questions I have are what improvements will we see, when will we see them, and what camera bodies will they come in.  I'm ready for a new camera by next spring/summer, if it is the right fit.  Come on Canon, hit one out of the park for us.

I would keep expectations low.  It says nothing.  Hopefully, they will read the message they have written and get on the ball with their sensors.  The new lenses are begging to be challenged.

Very well said, Bravo!

There are fan boys on all the sites as there are complainers on all the sites.

There is not a camera made today that some won't be fan boys of and others will consistantly complain about (sometimes they are the same person!)

I do believe that the term "Troll" is being mis/over used on these sites.  Sometimes it seems that if someone has a different opinon, they are too quickly labeled a troll. It is a good ad hominem attack.

The important thing to remember is that if someone posts something you disagree with, you DO NOT have to reply.

On the Internets Tubes, no one ever wins an argument... but a lot of people lose one.  ;)

All things considered, Canon is coming under a lot of pressure to advance their sensors.  This is great for US!

EOS Bodies / Re: No EOS-1D X Replacement in 2014 [CR2]

A big disappointment.

Hopefully, a 5DII will come with some great surprises and soon.


EOS Bodies / Re: Poll: Would you buy a high MP Canon EOS 5DIV?

Of curse, resolution is good, but I also want to see a significant improvement in image quality.  I would like to see the "Canon sensors are far behind "(fill in the blank manufacturers)complainers finally shut up already.

I'd like Canon to keep the 5D Mark IV in the 24-30MP range.  If they produce a higher resolution camera, then it should be a separate camera line....3D.

My 5D Mark IV wish list:

* 24-30MP
* Dual Compact Flash card slots
* 8 fps in burst mode with a buffer that can handle at least 35 full resolution RAW files writing to both memory card slots.
* Improved ISO & Dynamic Range performance
* Improved autofocus system with wider coverage of autofocus points
* Red lighted autofocus points that are easy to see in the view finder in low light conditions in all autofocus modes
* A better metering system with metering tied to the selected autofocus points
* 1/400 sec flash synch speed
* The back of the camera should have backlit buttons that are easy to see in the dark, like the Nikon D4

Software & Accessories / Re: Capture One Pro 8 - Announced

I use LR5.  I would be interested in knowing how it compares in terms of ease of use and how the pics compare?



If like me, you used Aperture3 for your workflow and are now considering your options after Apples's disappointing discontinuation of the software, you may be interested in this. In the promotional video it indicates you can 'import from Aperture.' 

I will be downloading the 60 trial and assessing.  If you're in the same boat, or you already have Capture Pro 8, perhaps we can share your thoughts here.

Cuts out the needless dead space.

Nice shot.


All great and interesting points.

To me, it is most telling when "pundits" bash the cameras without actually and objectively seeing what they can do.  Instant loss of credibility.

I just sat through about 20 minutes of it. He is very biased, and when he can muster any compliments they are all backhanded in nature.  He makes a few points, but overall, it is like listening to nails on a chalkboard because he is so openly contemptuous. 


Every frame in focus.....hmmm

Give it to Tony Northrup and I am sure he could bugger up the settings and drop that down to 60%

He is pretty much doing it now.

Any angry x's?

The ads we see are tailored to each user using the cookies placed on your computer from previous visits to other web sites.  If you look at a Nikon D810 on Amazon, you will likely see ads almost everywhere you visit.

I swear, it must have been someone hacking my account.  I don't know where those penile enhancement ads came from!!!! :-[

And what is it supposed to do that we can't do now?

That is politically correct.

I don't use the N-word and I don't like people around me using it either.
