EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D Mark III Spot Meter
« on: April 22, 2012, 04:15:25 PM »
Canon somehow forgot to add this feature on the 5D3. However, it is avalible on the D800, together with other nifty features like facial tracking and an overall better sensor.

Yes, those features will come in quite handy for portraits with the Nikon 85mm f/1.2 lens, or the truly excellent Nikon 135mm f/2.  Oh, wait..... :o
Oh well, at least Canon gave us the ratebutton and the mode dial lock. :)

I'm not following here.

Respond to what? The D800?

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D3 and things that could be improved just a little.
« on: April 04, 2012, 04:17:29 PM »
What about the truly important things that could / should be improved a lot, from the start?

Like giving us a sensor with improved DR capabilities?

I'd also like spot metering to be linked to selected AF point.

Something to wish for in the MK IV, I guess.

Nice shot!

I am in Osaka right now, just hanging out while I am waiting for the cherry blossom to open in Kyoto. :) Thats where I'll be staying during first half of April!

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Prepping a High MP Killer?
« on: March 28, 2012, 11:22:45 PM »
I'm not sure what the image quality will be like though
I'm not a fan of the 18MP APS-C IQ and after 4 years
the 5Dmk3 shows no improvement at ISO 100 over the 5Dmk2
(obviously high iso has stepped up though)
You are right.

A high MP "killer" from Canon, won't kill anything, if they dont give it a brand new and highly improved sensor. Higher IQ, more detail and a 2 - 3 stop improvement in DR should do it! Canon really needs to start competing with Nikon's (Sony's) Exmore sensor.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Nikon D800 Pictures - IQ
« on: March 28, 2012, 05:11:40 AM »
Wrong answer - there's a sub forum for Third Parrty Manufacturers, and this post clearly belongs there. blablablabla and blabla.
Hello there obvious fanboy. It is just too bad that the karma system is gone. You really need some smiting!

Now shut your pie hole and accept that people wish to talk and discuss about the D800, right here on the EOS board. After all, Canons new dinkytoy (5D2.5) got beaten pretty badly by Nikon's new supercamera, so it is only natural that people want to talk about it.

No offence and have a nice day.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Another 5D3 ISO comparison
« on: March 27, 2012, 06:03:06 AM »
As many others already pointed out: Whatever improvements Canon did with the 5D3, they forgot to improve the sensor. The most important element of a camera.


384
I believe it will be almost a stripped down version of the 5D III for studio/landscape.
Well, then it will be very important that the camera can produce a wide amount of DR. Preferably as good as the D800 DR.

I dont think Canon has the tech for this right now.


385
A mirrorless is only interesting if it has a full frame sensor and great ISO performance.

I hope you read this, Canon.

386
He is doing is exactly what I want to see.  RAW to RAW comparisons. Other places are comparing out of camera JPEG's.

yeah, i always shoot raw, so that's what i want to see.
Don't we all?

I really can't understand why some people even care about comparing jpegs, or why Chuck Westfall was braging so much about the 2 stop jpeg improvement over the 5D2.. Who the heck cares?

RAW improvement is all that matters

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Mother of God - D800 scores 95 DxOMark
« on: March 24, 2012, 09:52:03 AM »
Amusing fanboys are amusing.

The D800 turns out to be a better camera than the 5D3. It gets an amazing score from DxO, and the Canon fanboys reacts like: "Meh, who cares about DxO?! better camera does not make u better photographer! Canon power!!!1"

But if the 5D3 had the same score or higher, they would all be cheering and shouting: "OMG! Look at that fat DxO score! OUR CAMERA IS WINNER!! Take that, Nikon!"  ;D

Lenses / Re: 5d3 or lenses
« on: March 19, 2012, 11:36:07 AM »
Why would you want to buy the 5D3 if you already have the 5D2?

Do you think you'll gett better IQ from the 5D3? If that is the case, then forget it! Whatever improvements they did, it does not include the sensor (dynamic range and image quality.)

Spend your money on glass, or do like me and switch to Nikon for the D800.  ;)

D800 is the obvious answer. It has everything that the 5D3 has, + more, and at a lower price. Most importantly, the D800 has wider dynamic range at low ISO, and captures way more detail.

The 5D3 is a sports / photojournalism / general purpose camera.

I'm selling all my gear right now and moving to Nikon for the D800. :)

Will you come back to Canon in six months when they release their high megapixel camera?  :-*
When Canon release their high MP camera, it still won't matter much, because I seriously doubt that they will be able to match the DR output of Nikon's (Sonys) new sensors.

You are mistaken if you think I'm moving to the D800 just for high MP. ;)

But if Canon actually do manage to create a new sensor that can match (or even beat Nikon's), I will eat my words + socks.
