The last time I tried colour IR was back in the film days. I like the image, for technical reasons, plus, its different
I am curious about the IR setup. My interest at the moment is trying to study skin diseases on animals. The other week, I had an idea about using IR to help determine if a certain condition of the skin appears, without handling the animal. But, I wasn't entirely sure how to setup the IR rig. This certainly looks like an idea to try
Ultimately, when today's generation of users who have grown up with smartphones and other devices that have EVFs become the majority of camera buyers, then the optical viewfinder and the mirror may indeed disappear. But my question to you is - why do want that to happen now when so many folks prefer the optical viewfinder?
1. While I do not really "like" any large corporation, I have no "hatred" against Canon. I'm just watching their stills imaging product strategy strictly from a customer's perspective and taking some educated guesses where that might lead them.
2. I don't want to see those mirrorslappers disappear overnight. They will disappear soon enough, but its going to take some time. Everybody can buy and use whatever type of camera they want. But it needs to be avaliable for purchase! All I want from Canon is a kick-ass FF mirrorless system. If they would also continue to churn out minor iterations of their old mirrorslappers again and again, no problem with me. All I want is the choice - mechanical mirror slapping in the lightpath ... or rather not.
3. I would like to BUY a Canon mirrorless FF camera that is fully competitive with or bests either the Sony A7 II or the A7R II. I would also like to BUY a few new native Canon lenses along with it - nicely balancing size/weight, performance and price.
4. I do dislike Sony as a company [way more than Canon] and more importantly, I really prefer the Canon user interface. Also, I don't like the idea of a reverse-engineered third party lens adapter to use my existing EF glass on a Sony body. Just as on my EOS M, I would like to buy prefer a reasonably priced, native Canon adapter to mount existing EF glass on a not-yet existing Canon FF mirrorless camera.
I use DSLR Controller with my 5d3 and Samsung Tab S.I too use DSLR controller with a 5D3 wired to a Samsung tabpro. I also got the wireless router that allows you to work wirelessly but find the time to download from the camera to the tablet to be too long especially when shooting raw files. It works, but it is slow. The wired set up isn' t really fast as it runs on usb 2, but it isn't as slow as the wireless.
I had to buy a proper cable from Lindy.com to connect the camera and tablet, which was a very expensive $8.00.
I also bought a RAM mount which clips on to my tripod to hold the tablet, and it all works really well.
When I do real estate work, or restaurant food photos, the clients are very impressed with the set-up and love the fact they can see the angles and layouts etc before I take the shots.
I find that as long as the camera battery is well charged (more than half charged) that it all works really well and for a very reasonable price.
I bought two of the custom ones today. The EC-A and the S Type.
Looking forward to getting using them both! Thanks for the recommendations and the helpful hints about JIS vs Philips head, will be using JIS to put these in.
Very definitely agree about testing independent of camera bodies. Look at the DxO mark scores for the Nikon and Canon 500mm f4 lenses. Which lens would you rather have, knowing that sensors keep improving?
