This is Crap... While Nikon is on schedule releasing great stuff, Canon releases defective and late equipment...
What the hell is up with Canon? Man, if only my entire professional SLR / DLSR system was not built of Canon stuff.... I've been a "Canon Man" for nearly 25 years, but I'd ditch it all in a second if I could afford to. I know at least one very well known (both him and his father) action sports / landscape photographer that is considering jumping ship. Between the MkIII, and the 1 DX, and I don't even know what problems or delays Canon is having, or will have, with their Cinema bodies / lenses, etc. All we see from Canon are patents for new lens designs, it seems they want to, on paper, lock up designs. Mean time, their products as of late are delayed with out any explanation, or showing up with flaws, etc.
I must say, as a professional shooter and career long Canon guy, I am very, very disappointed.
I am just missing where he is acutally calibrating the camera? I
Some cameras come with a yellow bias, a magenta bias and or a green bias. Sometimes you get one that is perfect from the factory but from my experience that is not the case.
The WB shift is good for simple corrections, not big swings. But that is usually all that is required to balance the camera, maybe you should send that baby back to Canon. I have sent back 4 of my 7D’s. I cannot get them to look right.
I would be shocked that Canon would want blonde showing purple tint and call it an update.You are right but honestly I haven't seen an example such as yours before. While I haven't conducted any direct comparisons, I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary with light hair in my photos.
I will look through that article and see if we can set the internal WB. That is what I have been looking for. Still believe that it should be preset and not left to the end user to tinker with.
These nice black images can actually be useful. You can print one (YES print), then cut a small rectangle and use it to cover... the LCD
well, you may want to look again at the pictures in section 2 where Fred Miranda examines and compares dynamic range for the 2 cams ... and see how ***fully justified*** all the "whining" is!
