Thanks. I thought I heard something about a master flash. Interesting.

yeah she says that you can attach a master flash in order to control other units (i'm italian too)

it would be nice to have a section here on the forum (maybe divided by continent) to sell used gears :)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D mk II still a viable option?
« on: May 22, 2012, 01:08:16 AM »

500D, ISO 100, 1/160, f/5.6 @ 17mm

Very Nice... and with FF, you will be able to get the whole peak on the right side, and perhaps land it in the rule of thirds grid too  ;)


thanks, I didn't frame it  "on the right line" on purpose because it was cutting too much on the left side (like that slope on the forest) and the panorama wasn't enough "spaced".

that place (scotland, top of the old man of storr) is beautiful anyway... have to go back there one day!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D Mark III Spot Meter
« on: April 22, 2012, 05:08:59 PM »
I cant believe it cant do this, considering the cost of the camera.

As I and others have stated, Canon needs to differentiate their lines.  The 1D X has AF point-linked spot metering (as did previous 1-series bodies).  Unfortunately, Canon isn't likely to put all of the 1-series features in a lesser body, despite the fact that everyone seems to think they should.  Honestly, I was really surprised that Canon put the 1D X's AF sensor into the 5DIII, something I'm sure you can appreciate having shot with the 5DII.

and here you should please explain me why nikon offer this function even on their $600 entry level dslr if it's something so special that has to be available only on canon's flagship (and maybe we even have to thank for it...)

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D3 and things that could be improved just a little.
« on: April 04, 2012, 05:07:56 PM »
I'd also like spot metering to be linked to selected AF point.

That's the only huge miss to me... nikon offers it on 600$ cameras and canon cannot afford to put it on a $3500 one... shame on them

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Defective 5D MK III.....
« on: March 22, 2012, 02:56:21 PM »
Here's a good example: (100%)

If this is a 100% crop, I'm not seeing a problem with sharpness.  Maybe I'm looking at something different than you but it looks great to me. 

If you are comparing this to the performance of another DSLR like a 5D2, it might be helpful to actually set up a shot, shoot the same shot with the same lens and settings on both camera bodies and then post identical crops to illustrate the difference.

If you don't see anything wrong with he quality of that image then perhaps some glasses would do you good. I just met up with Borrow Lens and did multiple tests with their cameras and there is indeed something wrong with my MK3 body. The difference in image quality side by side with their MK3 was night and day.

hi, i'm only an amateur and i've never shot with a full frame so sorry in advance for the stupid question... can you please enlighten me (and the other that are not seeing any problem) on what's wrong with that image?
it just seems slightly out of focus to me, it would be nice to see a side by side compare with the other MK3 and same lens/composition to see this night and day difference.

Macro / Re: Bee in the sun
« on: March 16, 2012, 02:39:02 AM »
nice pictures! what aperture have you used in these shots?

29
But I don't know anyone who requires auto ISO to shoot motocross.  That's bloody ridiculous.

Sorry, have to completely disagree there.  There are many situations where you need a fixed aperture for the proper DoF and a fixed shutter speed to stop action, but light levels can vary greatly during shooting.  Birds in flight, where the subject flies with open sky vs. dark trees in the background.  Motocross where half of the arena is sunlit and half is in shadow.  For those situations, a functional Auto ISO in M mode is very, very convenient, especially one where you can set an upper limit for the ISO.

Convenient, but not required, which was my point.  Disagree if you must, completely if necessary, but the second a camera manufacturer comes out with a feature or function that does not meet the expectations of everyone, suddenly the camera is useless?  Um...no.  Switch to nikon if you want that kind of auto ISO functionality.  Canon hasn't had it, hasn't needed it, and people still shoot motocross with canon bodies without it.  It isn't a deal-breaker for 99% of people considering this camera for that kind of photography.  Well, the people that matter anyway.  I don't shoot that kind of photography, but I have shot nature, extensively, without the convenience.  I just push the button with the pip on it and spin the dial on the back when I need more shutter speed.  It's not that big a deal.

nothing is required, according to your thoughts we should also thank Canon that offers Tv/Av modes when all we require is M.
I don't really understand why every time Canon is short of a feature (e.g. auto-iso, af-linked-point spot metering, etc.) the answer is "yeah switch to nikon if you don't like it", what kind of answer is that? Maybe we (as complaining people) have other reasons for sticking with Canon?
if everyone would settle down with what we currently have without complaining they simply wouldn't update their cameras, they won't make better products that no one is asking for.

is it missing a features? yes
is it really important for "you"? no
is it really important for others? yes

why can't some people simply accept that Canon can (and should) make better products offering basic features that the competition offers with cameras at a lower price?

(waiting for the first smite on the forum...)

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mk III vs D800/E, is the 5D3 better at anything?
« on: March 14, 2012, 01:19:48 AM »
Some Facts:

AF point-linked spot metering:
D800: Yes
5D3: No

i didn't know that, it's crazy! is it something fixable with a firmware update?
I'm looking forward to buy a 5d3 later in the summer... canon for life for me, i just can't like the nikon "usability"
I don't think it can be fixed by firmware, Canon only offer this in 1D, Nikon offer this through their entire range

yeah i knew that, that's why i was finally expecting canon to follow nikon at least with the 5d line... damn canon :(
