EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 1DS MKII black lines problem.

If I got a repair quote like that, I'd probably go with a Nikon next time.  Just saying.
Do you expect Nikon to have lower repair prices for old equipment? I have never heard that that would be the case

Interesting, thanks for sharing. Let's hope it is not just because of new Xcode and OS versions

Site Information / Re: banning people for nothing at canon rumors
« on: June 13, 2013, 01:30:21 PM »

that is why postings should not be removed at all.
it´s like the police saying "we had the evidence but we destroyed it".
I disagree - I have seen threads on some boards that become a pain to read because they are cluttered with flames and insults. I'm actually glad that there are people who take on the extra work of deleting them, even at the risk that admins may at times overreact.

The site administrator has prevented me from continuing to post on the Adorama thread. My money is still not returned its been a week and a day and they still have not provided proof that they have done a thing with my money. All I get is responses from Helen saying that it will be back... Something is seriously wrong here.
or it is just banks ... I do understand the frustration, but my best guess is that the money is meandering through the banking system right now, which means there is not much Adorama or anyone else can do now until it arrives back in your account. Have you inquired with your bank?

Who else is reminded of the Cube? Just with rounded corners (didn't Apple have a patent on that?)  ;)

The peripheral thingy works for jpg only...
Having fun?

Lenses / Re: Leaf Shutter Lenses For Canon Dslr
« on: June 05, 2013, 07:30:50 PM »
Maybe the because most dSLRs have the shutter in the body?
In order to use a leaf shutter lens, the camera shutter would have to stay open for at least as long as the lens shutter will be open, and somehow the the lens shutter would have to be actuated. Technically probably not impossible (the lens aperture is actuated when you press the shutter button, so why not the lens shutter?), but it would be entirely new functionality for current dSLRs

Nope...my Hasselblad 203 had a focal plane shutter in the body, but in 'C' mode, used the lens leaf shutter and changed the function of the FP shutter to act like the standard baffles in the 50x bodies.
yes, that's how I thought it might work. But for (most) 35mm or APS-C dSLRs that functionality would have to be added to the body. And obviously the manufacturers don't deem it worth it ...

spend some time reading the manual  ::) especially about the AF
I load the manuals as PDF on my phone so that I can read when I have time in between (like on the train)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D MK III MFA and Focal small rant
« on: June 04, 2013, 09:20:45 PM »
Do you think that one day, it  will be possible to use FoCal with the 5DIII or 1DX?
It already is, just not fully automated. You have to click buttons on the camera in between, AFAIK

Isn't one of the possible application that you can (apparently) have a large DOF with wider apertures? Foreground to background sharp without having to stop down to f/11 or higher?

very true but at some point you reach diminishing returns. if the goal is to maximize DOF through tilting then you are not likely to push it wide open as this would defeat the purpose. you are more likely to push it to F8 and tilt than to go wide open. but sure, i guess there are "creative" moments where you would want wide open with a maximum tilt....but not to maximize your DOF.

my point was clearly missed. the lens is designed for architectural and landscape photography which traditionally requires large DOF. is it such a stretch to imagine Samyung kept costs down by designing a lens that would fulfill the traditional needs of this genre of photography and bypass any IQ on the wide open end?

Agree, that's why I wrote "one possible application". I don't think the lens is useless. For maximizing DOF at f/8 and shift and higher it still delivers the required functionality for half the prize of the Canon. But possibilities are more limited than with the Canon. As usual, lens design is about trade-offs.
If this lens is still a good value for the money depends on the individual making the purchase decision and their intended use

Lenses / Re: Are there custom lens hoods for canon L lenses??
« on: June 03, 2013, 01:13:43 PM »
I dont know why this bugs me so much but i'm embarrased to be seen with the lens hood on the lens.
I would not try to fix this issue with a new lens hood. Maybe re-think what matters to you in life, and what others like about you. I'm sure it is not the lens hoods you use.

Canon General / Re: Seabird colony - change lens or not?
« on: May 31, 2013, 05:11:46 PM »
I have done it several times without any problems.
I think that the air near the water (even on a beach) has usually less dust than the air inland. The sand grains on a beach are usually bigger than the average dust inland, and are not picked up by the wind easily. The wind coming from the sea should be pretty dust free. Only if the wind is very strong it will pick up these larger sand grains and blow them around, and then spray can become a problem too.
 Unless you get a big drop of spray into the open camera, it should not be a problem. If it feels like your hands and face are being sandblasted, I would change lenses somewhere else.

If you want it to be quick and have a Walgreens close by, www.walgreens.com
Just make sure you uncheck the Automatic Enhancement during the upload, and choose pickup in store instead of having them mailed to you.

4x6 should be fine, and you can export as JPG in RGB at full size if you don't mind the longer upload, or export with a reduced size. Their recommended minimum for 4x6 is 540x360 pixels, but it doesn't hurt to do at least twice or three times as much.
