HDR - High Dynamic Range / Re: Canon 5D mark 3 in-camera HDR shots
« on: August 16, 2012, 03:19:18 AM »
That's terrible! :D

Maybe in camera HDR will be good in 5D Mark 5 or 6, but right now it is truly useless.

273
That is a very good question. The same thing can be said about the difference in sensor performance between the 5D2 and the new 5D3! ..There is no difference, unless you shoot above ISO 2000 and want to use your camera as some kind of handheld night vision device.

Hopefully Nikon's D800 has scared Canon's sensor devs into working harder from now on.




274
Yeah!!! Look at that 1DX! Wohoo  :P


275
A lot of user's first response is: Will this improve the low ISO noise? LOL!
Haha!. If a new camera body won't improve low ISO noise (the 5D3), then people should not expect it from a mere firmware update. :D

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon to announce medium format dslr?
« on: August 06, 2012, 06:14:59 AM »
I want one! But only if it is no bigger / heavier than a 5D2.

Not gonna happen.  ;D

If Canon's high MP camera doesn't deliver in the IQ department (Dynamic range, read noise, no bandning, e.t.c) they won't get my money.

Not to be a pessimist, but I think it will be 3 - 4 more years before Canon can produce a sensor like the one in the D800.

I am more optimistic - in 2007 Canon produced the 1DS3 whose sensor delivered performance than only now has Nikon been able to surpass - and then in not all areas

If Canon could produce such a sensor 5 years ago then I can see no reason why they cant do it again
So why does it seem like most of their sensor development has come to a halt? ..Just look at the 5D3 sensor. I admit that the 5D3 is a fine camera, but the sensor is quite underwhelming. No bump in resolution, no DR improvement at normal ISOs. And yes, it even inherited vertical lines of pattern noise from the 5D2!  :P

I too like to believe that Canon's sensor devs still knows how to innovate and improve, but it sure doesn't look like it.

Browsing the comments... it seems Canon will fail big time no matter what they do!

Seriously... if they do get the sensor to perform like the 1Dx and with twice the pixels it sound like a winner! Compare this with the new focusing system with the superb repetability (see lensrentals blog) it will be one sweet camera.
Dear Simpleton. I am not seeing what you are seeing.

The general consensus among the comments is simply that Canon needs to step up it's sensor development and release a high MP sensor with more DR and no banding.

There is nothing wrong with that, because Nikon / Sony (Canon's main competition) are already way ahead in terms of sensor tech.

Canon General / Re: Announcements in August [CR1]

I find this a bit unlikely, but it was also mentioned we’ll see a second EOS-M camera announced in the fall, probably not before Photokina though. It would be the “pro” model.  I’m confident one is coming, I’m just not sure it’s coming that soon.

Pro model? Then it better be full frame.

Ok. more megapixels. That was always going to happen.

But will the sensor be any better?
Will it still have vertical banding up the wazoo in dark areas?
Will the read noise be the same?
Will the dynamic response be about the same?

What was so good about the D800 wasn't just the increase in number of pixels but the quality of those pixels.

+1!
I was just about to write this, but you beat me to it.

If Canon's high MP camera doesn't deliver in the IQ department (Dynamic range, read noise, no bandning, e.t.c) they won't get my money.

Not to be a pessimist, but I think it will be 3 - 4 more years before Canon can produce a sensor like the one in the D800.

And even if Canon could do it right now, they will hold back because they are afraid to anger all the 5D3 buyers. Especially the ones who pretends that they don't care about improved DR.  ;)

Lenses / Re: 70-200 2.8 II vs. 85mm 1.2 II - general opinion
« on: July 26, 2012, 11:28:26 PM »
If I want great shots, I'll shoot with the 70-200L for versatility.  If I want magical shots, I'll put on the 85L.
Perfect answer.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Canon EOS 5D Mark III Price Drop
« on: July 26, 2012, 11:25:23 PM »
I knew I should have waited  >:(
I've even seen it as low as 2800.
A canon authorized dealer were selling them not too long ago on ebay with the battery grip and memory card for 3200 and change SMH.

such a huge price drop in such short time. I really wish I would have waited.
Well go figure.

Everyone should have waited! It was obvious from the start that the 5D3 was heavily overpriced, and that a significant price drop could happen at any time. If more people could have held off their purchase, the price drop would have come even faster!

This fall the 5D3 will be down under 3k everywhere. By November / December it will be around 2750.

I'm glad I waited. What is the hurry anyway?

Still not enough to make me bite
Same here, since the improved AF is the only real point of interest.

I think I'll hang on to my 5D2 until the 5D3 drops below 2900. Or maybe until the 5D4 shows up. lol.

EOS Bodies / Re: Another Full Frame Camera? [CR1]
« on: July 25, 2012, 08:47:07 AM »
Very interesting, as long as it also comes with a significant bump in the dynamic range department.

High MP cameras = aimed towards landscapers, and what do landscapers need above all else? Dynamic range.

Well, maybe not "above all else", but you get my point. :p
