Lenses / Re: Canon EF 500 & 600 f/4L IS II Availability
« on: May 08, 2012, 01:47:40 PM »
And it's true that we Canadians do not like to be referred to as American. Nothing against our American brethren, but we have our own identity.

But aren't we all North Americans, 'eh?

BTW, I don't really think threadjacking applies here.  Where exactly is this thread going?  The 500 II and 600 II are delayed.  Again.  Again again.  Is that really a surprise to anyone at this point?  News flash: a Canon lens is delayed.  Sort of like a CR3 post that the sun will rise tomorrow or that water is wet.

Rich North Americans, if he gets asked the question when there coming every day.

Already people are seeing more vignetting on there lenses, probably also due to the sensor.

?
Maybe because they switched to a Full Frame !
Same vignetting on my 5D mark iii as on the 1ds/5d mark ii.

I was trying to be sarcastic.

Perhaps the reason that this shows up with the cap on is because the sensor is actually really really sensitive, more so than on older models, and that is why it seems to show up on the high end gear only.
IE: The same minor leaks as on all gear, but now the sensor can see it.

Boom.


Good one.

I still have old stuff, lucky me.

Lol.  ;D thanks

At this point, I feel Nikon D800 is a much better choice. Canon needs to go back to the drawing board.

I may buy a D800 with couple of lenses at this time.

Y.


Excellently trolled sir/madam. Headgears off to you.




Lol .. Thanks. Cant afford the III but this made me laugh. +1

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D III high ISO samples
« on: March 02, 2012, 03:11:06 PM »
I just downloaded the high ISO images from DPR.  All the images were taken at 3EV, so they are real low light images.

On my screen, I could see the noise at ISO 102400, but the 8.5 X 11 prints were sharp and clean.  I then printed 3 more, 51200, 25,600, 12800, and they also suprised me.  I could show any of these prints to someone, and they would not suspect that they were high ISO unless they had a magnifier.

These were jpegs with no additional processing by me, I would expect RAW to be better.

I certainly plan to use the ISO 25600 freely whenever I absolutely need it in low light for a fast shutter speed.

Canon has done some real work on the blacks, I can move the black slider in LR4 all the way to the right without seeing any banding.


yes they look more then okay!

Like it.  With the new dual card slot, I'm hoping Canon has worked out a way for me to shoot pictures and record them onto a CF card, while playing my iTunes music from the SD card through the headphones.  Now all it needs is a 4G antenna, and it'll be the ultimate camera phone.

 :P

Lol

Still needs a touchscreen for apps though   :D

Comes with the Battery/Apps pack.

Lenses / Re: Pricing of the New Lenses
« on: February 07, 2012, 08:42:03 AM »
$1000 for 10 cm shorter and a few grams lighter, with a less effective hood design, the possibility of lens creep (they felt the need for a zoom lock), and the added expense of 82mm filters?

Optically, this lens had better be *damn* good...

At this price diff *damn* good... is an understatement.

In fact...what if they just use the same sensor as in the 5DII in a new 5DIII?  No one seems to be complaining about the performance of that sensor - so why not leave it alone and improve other features?  We've heard rumors of a 22 MP sensor, right?  Guess what - the 5DII already has a 22 MP sensor, with 21.1 MP effective pixels.  Check the specs...


A very good idea. They have only up the frame rate a little and the AF( a lot more) and they have another winner.

You could be working for Canon. ;)

Software & Accessories / Re: Lightroom or Aperture?
« on: November 24, 2011, 11:47:36 AM »
Still using Aperture on an Imac from 2007 with 3 gb of ram and the program works fine.
Havent had any crash since Aperture 3. ( crop tool gave problems sometimes).
There is a big plus for getting Aperture. If you get it through the Appstore its much cheaper. ;)
