Lenses / How to carry 5DMKIII with 70-200/2.8ISMKII
« on: September 03, 2013, 12:39:26 PM »
I have a question regarding how to properly carry this combo - 5DMKIII with 70-200/2.8ISMKII. I usually carry two bodies on a strap (double sided harness), never had any issues. But the new 70-200/2.8ISMKII is quite heavy and I am concerned if it may brake off the camera body mount if I continue to carry this combo just like that - a strap attached to the camera body. Should I attach the strap to the lens instead (the tripod mounting ring)? Seems awkward though...  Carrying one camera seems simple enough, but i am concerned regarding when i have to carry two cameras at the same time...

Share your experience please...


EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5D MKIII - file size and low MPs question
« on: December 05, 2012, 12:28:25 PM »
I' just read the following at kenrockwell website and i am confused. I do realize there is an option to shoot at smaller MPs, but I did not know it is beneficial for image quality. Can some of the tech-smart guys here comment on this? Are you guys shooting at lower MPs?

No one needs 21MP. All it does is slow everything and clog your hard drive.

Try shooting your 5D Mark III at its M (11MP) or S (5MP) settings. If you look at your images at 100%, you'll see that the lower resolution shots are sharper pixel-by-pixel!

When I'm photographing family and friends, I shoot at SMALL JPG. Even SMALL is good enough for great 20x30" prints.

The smaller-sized images out of the 5D Mark III are spectacular. They are much, much sharper and cleaner than images from cameras on which that is their native resolution. When you start with over 20MP, it looks pretty good if you use all those to make 11MP or 5MP.

Why? Because they use less, or no, Bayer interpolation. No digital camera really resolves its rated resolution; they cheat and interpolate up, so at 100% at its rated resolution, no digital camera image is as sharp as a true scan from film.

The seller is in the US but i do not recognize the name. With a sale of 24-105L at $850, the body works out to $2750. They are saying on ebay that the kit comes with Canon USA warranty...

Also Vistek and some other stores in Canada started to offer an additional $100 discount to the usual Canadian price $3500, so the body now is cheaper (if we are talking big reputable camera stores) in Canada at $3400.

Canon General / Canada - USA cross border warranty service
« on: September 10, 2012, 05:06:48 PM »
I've browsed a ton of warranty related posts but was unable to find a straight answer to my question.

As Canadian - if I buy  a body (5DMKIII) in the US and i need warranty repair/service (in Canada) - would Canon Canada take it for service or i will need to send it to the US? I know the card says US/Canada warranty, but it i could not find a clear indication that a cross-border purchase will be serviced in a country of residence.

Any experience?
