Didnt Canon like, just build a new chip foundry? So they set them selves up to build chips, just to start outsourcing those chips?

7 years ago I think.

Oh ok. Sorry, my bad.

I also had trouble with photostitch, even with distant objects and many shots.  It was just a trial, I tried 2-3 times and lost interest.
 
If I still have the original photos, I'll try photoshop and compare.

I have bought a lens as well as a refurb 5D lll and have had no issues. They charged my card once the items were shipped on both purchases. The 5D had less than 3K on the shutter and it saved me over $1K. Not to mention you get the same warranty as you would if you bought new. Be patient and I'm sure it will be fine.

And how (if you recall) were the intervals between your order dates and the corresponding ship dates?

Software & Accessories / Re: ViewPoint 2 with Lightroom

What is ViewPoint doing that Lightroom isn't?

If you're using Lightroom 5 it's probably doing very little, since they added perspective correction software - though I have no idea how good it is.

I've been using Viewpoint for a long time for my architectural work, so I never made the jump to LR5 (still using LR4).  The fact it 'bakes it in', as explained above, never really bothered me because my workflow always exported to Photoshop anyway.  I just did my adjustments in LR, Edit in Viewpoint, then export to Photoshop. 

That said, there have been times that I had to start over because I wanted to adjust something after Viewpoint.  I'm curious to see how the Lightroom perspective correction tool matches up with Viewpoint (which I think to be rather good).  But the thought of non-destructive perspective correction and not having to enter a new module sounds enticing.  Looking forward to Lightroom 6.

And when you step into those two models, you're in the RED Scarlet price range

Which you previously showed to be within your budget. Canon makes 4K Raw cameras. What you want is an inexpensive Canon 4K rig. Assuming the thermal design of the rumored body is adequate, I don't see any reason Canon wouldn't enable it (as at that point it would be largely software).

Either way, the notion that an iPhone will record 4k before a Canon camera is demonstrably false. ;)



[If video were my thing and I had the budget, I'd go down the RED path too]

And All friends who do not want to clean the greasy LCD screen like me--0-I just use Canon Eyepiece Extender EP-EX15 = Less Than $ 20 US Dollars to add on between camera and original eyepiece n= BINGO , + I can see super clear Viewfinder, because of extra lens in the Eyepiece Extender.

Just be aware that the trade off for not having to clean your LCD as often is a 30% reduction in viewfinder magnification.

the allure of studio work is that it offers the potential for full control over lighting and exposure. everything is manually controlled as has been stated.

 the challenge in learning studio technique is that the approach is almost limitless. for example, i have at least 3 different lighting set ups that i use for simple headshots alone depending on my mood and the look i want to achieve. no one can tell you how to set up or use your lights...there are just way too many variables to try to do that and in the end each individual technique is just a personal preference and may not be suitable in your space or for your intended purposes.

 my suggestion...start to learn and understand what lighting ratios are. this is key in studio work. next, learn how different modifiers shape light. understanding that will inform you on when to choose an umbrella, softbox, dish, grid etc etc. all of this will greatly depend on the size of the space you are working in. width, depth, and height of your space will dictate what you can or cannot do in terms of lighting scenarios.
