few low light


Got in on this! I almost bought it at $350 a month or so ago! :)

I have that same combination but am currently at work. I will check it out when I go home.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I am interested in knowing about any such things about the equipment I've purchased.

Hi Tammy, I like this, but, is this a Photo ?? or a 3D construct of some sort, either way I like it, how did you put this together ?? I do like it.

It's a live photo of the Aladdin production/play performance at Disneyland's California Adventure! They allow photography without flash, even video.

it's also the same method used in the "handheld night shooting" mode in the latest compact cameras, first introduced by Sony..

Nikon dipped 78% in total revenue? or SLR/camera related?

I am seriously sitting here ready to pull the trigger and order my 5D Mark iii.  I have L glass and currently shoot with a T4i.  I do just fine with my camera and LR4, but know that the FF be a better choice, especially for my indoor event photography.  If I was ready to order this last month or the month before, i wouldn't be worried about anything, but this close to Nov, I have to wonder if I am going to be angry with myself for missing the next 2750.00 type sale.  Typically, do these sales begin early Nov or closer to black Friday/X-Mas?  If B and H only drops this camera by 100 or so, I won't care, but saving almost 800 bucks had I waited 2-3 weeks would def make me regretful.  I know it shows a 5D3 in my profile, but I had planned on having it by this week...LOL Everything else in my profile I own now.

I hope you got in on the Datavision authorized dealer ebay deal for $2,800 going on last night? that was posted about on these boards.

kinda bummed that they don't support the 135MM 2.0L.  It's a fantastic lens to start with but it would be fun to see what a perfected rendition of it appears like .

the 135L is supported now! :)

so you people do not think it is a wise way for Canon to either buy Sony sensors  fast as he...  or show that they can do anything similar as Sony, Panasonic, Omnivision, Aptina???????????????????

No, i've had the discussion where, at some point, if Sony is outright making the best sensors by far that it would be fine/great if they were put in Canon SLRs to be used with the excellent lineup of lenses.

I would like to see what the new sensor tech on the coming Canon big MP sensor is like. If Canon is able to trump the image quality and dynamic range of even the Sony sensors, as is rumored, then no further discussion or ongoing comparisons, even in the future, is needed. ever.

eBay daily deals had a recent sale of the 5D3 kit with the 24-105 for $3600. With the 24-105 being worth $800+ on the street market, that would have made the body $2800 alone for those who were fortunate enough to get in on that deal.

Great shots Tammy and PeterJ!

Q for both of you:  Lens used in those shots?  Tammy, my guess is the 24mm L.  PeterJ, my guess is either the 24-70L or one of the 50 primes.  What is your opinion of the AF performance at those light levels and were you using center point only or something else?

All of the shots except the escalator one were with the 24L II. The escalator one is one of my first shots with the 24-70L II.

The AF on the Mark III is going to be quite a step up from whatever you're currently using. Of course, it also depends on what lenses you are pairing it with. But, in general, low light available light shooting is my favorite and the Mark III is a very capable camera that, for me, makes it easier for me to take the shots i want without any hassle or limitations. Equipped with 41 cross-type F4 sensitive AF sensors, what AF point i choose to use depends on what aperture and depth of field i need/want. i have the camera set to single point AF selection and have the peace of mind and confidence to stray off and select an AF point at the edges in landscape mode or to select the one over the eye in vertical portrait mode and still know i'm going to get the shot! If at F2.8 or wider then I tend to use the center point or other double cross types.. but this all helps you get better or more accurate framed shots than using the center point and recompose method that you/many feel they HAVE to with a rebel/5D2 etc because many of their AF points other than the center are not accurate in lower light situations. So for low light autofocus flexibility/functionality, there just isn't much better design out there right now than Canon's current one in the 5D3 and 1DX!
