EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Working with film
« on: September 29, 2012, 09:29:45 AM »
I'm good at manual, and I'm not a beginner.
Budget is around 300 dollars or less.
As long as the camera can shoot, isn't that hard to use, and has an ef mount so I can use some l glass, it's great, but I do want to avoid rebel type cameras, and the élan 7.
I'm thinking the eos 5 is the way to go

Lenses / Wide angle/standard zoom
« on: September 28, 2012, 12:35:00 PM »
Hey guys, I'm having a bit of a dilemma, I'm trying to decide which way to go gear wise to accommodate my 70-200 2.8 l is ii. I am an enthusiast looking to move up to a ff, and shoot landscapes, portraits, and some sports(why I got the 70-200 and my extenders.)
I'm deciding between a canon 16-35 2.8 and maybe a sigma 50mm 1.4/canon 1.2 l/new canon 50mm 1.4
Benefits:
1.) a great wide angle that is good for portraits
2.) a good 50mm as an upgrade from my 1.8 that will bridge the gap
Cons:
1.) there is the fact that I may need a bunch of filters, which could be worth it.
2.)it may be more expensive

Or, a canon 17-40 and a canon 24-70 2.8 l mark 1
Benefits:
1.) a good standard zoom that works for portraits, and vacation
2.) those along with my 70-200, I have constant 77mm, so I can carry less filters.
Cons:
1.)may be heavier
2.)the weight may be a problem.
3.) if I only use the 24-70, it may be hard to take wide scenes.

Judging by the images I've seen, I'd like to investigate the eos 3 and the eos 5.
What do get with the 3 over the 5

I have aproblem,

Im starting a photography class in my high school next year, but the first year is film only.
I want to find a cheap canon film slr that is a descent camera, but won't break the bank, and the price won't hurt me if I dont use the camera for a long time.
I need to make sure it has a canon ef mount, or else I can't use my lenses.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Amatuer Upgrade - T2i to 1D3?
« on: September 27, 2012, 09:44:55 PM »
Just as everyone else says, the 7 is lighter, has better iOS, and it has an aps-c so you get better zoom. The advantages of the 1d3 are the 10fps and the focusing if you get a good copy.
I test 3 copies, all perfect, but the focus was still weird.
My advice is to wait for the 7d mark ii if there is one, because even though the 7d is great, pros who want a small sensor for wildlife want a better camera.
But in your case, a 7d is the way to go, the 7d2 will be way more expensive, the 1d3 is to risky, and the 1d4 won't have a major price drop till a 7dii comes out.

Have you thought about the sigma 17-50mm 2.8 os and the sigma 50-150 2.8 os/70-200 2.8 os

Lenses / Re: Manual Focus Lenses: Smarter in F-Mount?
« on: September 22, 2012, 07:46:42 AM »
It all depends on your shooting style, manual focus is really fun in photography. If you are doing street or portraits only, it would be nice. But if you shoot sports, wildlife, or landscape, you wouldn't be able to hit tack sharp focus. I carry a voigtlander 40mm f/2 in my bag, because itsngoodmfor m/f. If you make the in envestment in Nikon glass, you wouldn't be taking advantage of a dslr. Maybe start with some cheap canon primes, like the 50 1.8, and the 35 f/2, because they are bad at af. If you enjoy it, buy the Nikon lenses, and then if you want to stop m/f-ing, just sell your canon gear, and you then get a Nikon dslr.

EOS Bodies / Re: More Big Megapixel Talk
« on: September 17, 2012, 09:58:22 PM »
How many people are there who actually need 8FPS in a 40MP camera?

A lot would love it, but it wouldn't work. A processor that could do that is way beyond our limits.
It will be more like 4. Because if you did an 8 fps burst, it would start buffering after about 2 seconds.

The 7d is canons go to wildlife and sports dslr for amateurs. If they make it Better, it would best every other canon dslr.
If they make it apsh, most people would go to it rather than full frame, because of the low crop ratio

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D or 5D Mk II
« on: September 17, 2012, 09:25:55 PM »
The 5d ii is a great camera and always will be, but it was the pro big megapixel. The 6d is aimed at enthusiast who don't mind the focusing or fps. For such a long time, it's been "when the new model comes out, I'll get the new one." now canon is saying, "this is for you enthusiasts who want a ff camera," but what will happen when the 3d comes out, will the pros ditch the 5d iii?

EOS Bodies / Re: Who really is the target demographic for the 6D?
« on: September 17, 2012, 09:19:50 PM »
The 6d is an introduction to full frame for enthusiasts. people with a simple rebel who like portrait and landscapes can get simple features. You get good iso performance and full frame. You shouldn't need fast shutter speed or "the best focusing if you are going full frame. If so, you should go for a 1dx or 5d iii. It also gives them a chance to try wifi and gps without spending the money. This will get people buying either the 7d or the 6d. Then they will upgrade to the 5d iii or the 1dx, or the new 3d at a later time. Then they will by the wifi or gps accessories.

But, canon is pulling the wool over everyone's eyes on this one. When the "3d" comes out, pros will replace the 5d iii with that, and use the 1dx for speed there will be a lot of cheap well maintained used 5d iii is and the price will drop. Everyone with the 6d will try and upgrade. The 6d will be worth less, and amateurs with a rebel will get the 6d, so even if no one buys this now, it will sell eventually. Canon wants to have everyone jump up on full frame, and then spend money on the gps unit, wifi unit, and more l glass.

So in the final analysis, you could get screwed if you buy this, but if you're an enthusiast who wants full frame, is trying to start their own buissiness, or wants to see if this is the industry they want to try and become a pro in, this isn't such a bad camera. Plus, you could always buy a 1d mark ii, mark iii, or 50d to get the speed and focusing.

EOS Bodies / Re: Enough Full Frame Talk: Where are the 7D II Rumors?
« on: September 17, 2012, 09:03:18 PM »
The thing is, they can't do anything to make the 7d better. It has 18 megapixels which they can't increase or nobody will by the 6d, and everything else is as good as its gonna get unless they want to screw all the other canon cameras on the market. The 7d is supposed to be an wildlife/sport enthusiast camera, they get a decent camera, and an aps-c sensor so they can get a better zoom on wildlife. If people want better, canon wants them to go for an expensive full frame camera and the big l glass. It's all marketing. This also means we won't see a 70d for a while either, since if they bump things up at all, it will be too close to the 7d.
