Reviews / Re: Tony Northrup - D810 vs. 5D Mk3

Why is someone whose portfolio is full of glorified snapshots so concerned about his equipment?

Did you just call all my photography glorified snapshots?  ??? I like to think I'm at least a step above that. I don't consider my work to be the best, but neither do I consider it to be the worst...

Sheesh...I really don't understand this community anymore.

No way, dude :) I was referring to Tony Northrup, the guy whose video this thread was originally about before the discussion got derailed ;D I can see how the tangents that have followed could lead to confusion, though ;D

I don't consider my images to be the best either, far from it in fact, which is why I don't feel the need to create videos stating how useless my current gear is.

Can I make a phone call or text with it ;D?

EOS Bodies / Re: How can we improve on 5D3 to 5D4?

I'm sure Canon will figure out some things that will make me want it, but right now, I can't imagine what they would be. 5DIII has everything I need and more.

Same here. There are a few things that could be improved, which have been covered in great detail by other posters, but right now I'm planning on skipping the next generation of the 5D line. The 5D3 will serve my needs for many years to come.

A built in condom dispenser because the 5D3 sure seems popular with the ladies ;D Or maybe it's just me :o

I thought I had moved on from APS-C, but after seeing this images, maybe not :) Obviously, we need to see some RAW files before passing final judgement.

And motherf*ckers, $1800 in US and 2000EURO ($2587) in Europe.

Yeah, but your history is so much more diverse and interesting than it is here in America ;D We don't even have any real castles :(

I just clicked your link, and 6 of the top 10 were Canon bodies, and 4 were Nikon. I think that means that a list that updates hourly is almost useless :)

You Pacific Northwest guys have to show us your landscapes now so the rest of us in flat and boring America can drool in envy :D

Colorado boys are welcome to do this as well :)

Canon EOS 20D. EF 20mm.

Simply stunning! Love the color. Are the mountains snow covered year-round?

Plus, how can you say "no" to this?

Epic! Is that Mt. Hood?

It is!  I went up and took some photos of Mt Hood from Portland.  A few hours later I went and climbed Mt Hood and took some photos looking back at Portland!

No thanks to you, now I'm looking up real estate prices in Portland as I'm typing this :)

My family lived in the area when Mt. St. Helens blew up, but I was too young to remember anything. My mom has a shot of a huge puff of smoke and ash coming up off the mountain right before it erupted. Crazy stuff :o

Portland, Oregon, USA.  I'll put our Pacific Northwest scenery up against any challengers

That's funny. I am going to decide whether to stay in Houston or to move to Portland, OR in the next couple of months and the scenery is actually one of the biggest factors in favor of the city of roses.

I'm sure the cooler weather is a huge plus too. As a Houstonian, you're already used to the rain :)

There are lots of things I like about Texas, but the scenery isn't one of them! I dream of NorCal.....

Mosquito bites? I got bitten by about 20 waiting for the bus this morning and about 20 more taking out the trash last night, so 50 to shoot nice locales is totally acceptable ;)

That was 50 bites over a course of 30 minutes or so :o Not fun.

The Texas scenery doesn't such quite as much here in the hill country, but it's still relatively meh compared to the rest of the world. Someone mentioned Cape Town. Now that's one f'n spectacular city!
