It's a comparison not a scientific test... it would need to be repeated many more times...  I think the message you can take back is that the cameras can take a beating...  more than a lot of people realise! :) 

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon 5D Mk3 Reliability
« on: May 24, 2013, 12:25:14 AM »
Had it 5 months, and it has been by my side everyday....  the weather here in India can be a it harsh, especially now the rains are starting, but so far it has held up.  It has been in extreme dry and heavy rain. -10C to +40C. All with zero problems! There was even one time i got charged by a sloth bear and without hesitation raised it at a weapon (i was fairly sure the camera would have survived even if i didn't)...  luckily for me the bear stumbled, reared and i had a chance to back away! But i think it would have survived being used a bear repellant too! :)

Solid camera...  I foresee a long and happy relationship! :)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Why is my 5D3 so noisy???
« on: May 24, 2013, 12:18:18 AM »
I'm loving the low noise on my 5D mkIII, but when i don't nail the exposure or not using the right settings for a shot, i have seen some noise (still 10^6x better than my 450D)...  I then have re-shot with better success...  Try setting up a similar scenario and test your camera with different settings? Then if you are still unsatisfied, take it back to where you bought it?

For me anyway, i usual find it is me not using the tool properly, rather than the tool misbehaving! :)

Good luck

if it is not a screw filter, there will be a work-a-round.

My most wanted lenses are either 300 2.8 II or the 400 2.8 I or II...

Nice shots...  what lens were you using?

EOS-M / Re: Cases of EOS M + 22
« on: May 22, 2013, 02:57:49 AM »
you might get better responses if you change 'of' to 'for', since you're looking for a case FOR your camera,  not A case OF the camera.  I realize English is not the first language for many people on here.

A 'case of' a product is usually a unit measurement. You would have several units for sale within this larger box, the case.

Whereas you are looking a 'case for' a product, which usually means a protective shell or pouch.

I personally opened the message thinking it was someone talking about finding several of the units fresh in stock, like a surplus of them, indicating the camera would be on discount sale somewhere.

Tad harsh.

innovation...  i like it!

Is the second shifted image HDR?

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Olympus OMD EM5 or 6D
« on: May 22, 2013, 02:26:22 AM »
Not a definitive review or comparison...  but will directly compare the stats and DxO marks (for what they are worth)..

Personally, i would grab the 6D Kit if you can afford it...  24-105 + 70-200 is a very nice set-up...  Saying that i do like the EM5 too! :)

good luck choosing and enjoy either!

Lenses / Re: I have a weight limit....what would you bring?
« on: May 17, 2013, 09:37:28 AM »
Bring a coat with big pockets and shove a lens in there if you want an extra one (or two). Just an FYI! :)

come on canon, fix the AF...  it doesn't have to be lightening fast, just a little bit quicker!

I came across Gimp many years ago as a free bit of software, and now have it on my work computer instead of PS...
