EOS-M / M5 info screen to avoid heating up the sensor?
« Last post by Crosswind on Today at 06:13:36 PM »
Might be a dumb question... but look at the picture below... is the sensor still recording light in the background, while being in that particular INFO-display, or does the sensor stop collecting information (and therefore stop heating up) as long as I am inside this INFO screen??

I'm not sure, because y'know mirrorless cameras are always in LiveView, but when shooting some photos of the night sky, I want to a.) save some energy when possible by shutting down the image sensor (while still being able to see the display and all the settings about f-stop, exp. time and ISO) and b.) stop the sensor from constantly heating up, generating more noise.

As well all know, Sigma announced a bevy of wonderful new Art and Contemporary series lenses this past week. The bad news is, pricing and preorders have not become available.</p>
We’re told that pricing will not be released until the end of March, which means there will be no preorders until this time. However, we did have information from an authorized retailer that pricing was to be released this past week, so we’re not sure if anything has been truly finalized as of yet. If the end of March is the case, we’re hoping shipping will follow almost immediately.

Announced Sigma lenses:


  • Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art
  • Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG HSM OS Art
  • Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art
  • Sigma 100-400mm f/5-6.3 DG HSM OS Contemporary

You can get notification of the Sigma preorders here.

1DX Mark II Images / Re: Anything Shot with a 1Dx mark II
« Last post by WRS on Today at 05:57:37 PM »
Just got back from a great trip to the Galapagos Islands.  The principle purpose of the trip wasn't photography but I tried to squeeze in what I could.  I wanted to share this image as I continue to be blown away by the performance of the 1DX mark II.  This is an iso 10,000 file and I was impressed with the amount of retained detail, noise, etc.

Well then what type of card isn't "garbage?" Is Toshiba not a name brand electronics manufacturer?

Several Japanese news outlets published an article based on an interview with Nikon executives. Here are the key points from a Google translation (if you have a better translation, please post it in the comments section):
http://nikonrumors.com/2017/02/24/nikon-we-plan-to-concentrate-on-medium-and-high-end-dslr-and-mirrorless-cameras-and-lenses.aspx/#more-110659

Quote
The Nikon camera business is undergoing a major restructuring.
This is a quote: "bringing in multiple mirrorless cameras at an early stage" - to me this means announcing multiple mirrorless cameras soon.
Nikon is taking an aggressive approach to rebuild their camera business.
Nikon has no plans for closing domestic or overseas manufacturing plants at the present time.
In the future Nikon will concentrate their resources on medium to high-end DSLR cameras and lenses as well as mirrorless cameras.
Nikon will have fewer models in the future.
Nikon still wants to develop a high-end compact camera.


too late ...  ;D ;D ;D

# 1 for me. I'm 67 and my main gear consists of a 6D and 7D II bodies and my most used lenses are the 24-70 f/2.8  II, the 70-200 f/2.8 and the 400 f/5.6. I will admit though that my shoulders and back kill me for several days after I do a photo shoot.

Fair enough, but I have a hard time blaming the same card that has always worked flawlessly in my MkIII. ::)

Did not spend three grand on upgrading to a new camera for it to be less good than my old one.


I didn't spend three grand upgrading my camera to use the cheapest, sketchiest microSD card I could find. 

Get a card that isn't garbage.
