I have my hands on a 5D III and 1Dx tomorrow. Questions?
« on: March 04, 2012, 08:26:26 AM »
I will be attending Focus tomorrow, where Canon will be showing the 1Dx and 5D III to trade. I'll also get my hands on a D800 and D4.

Anyone have any questions they may want answering by the reps?

Y U NO CLEAN HDMI OUT????111!!1111ELEVEN

No. None. I'm jealous you get to play with one. I'd be interested in the feel - I'm guessing 7Dish, but with much wider, sharper images. I'll find out myself soon - can't wait to get it out there and working!

How far do Canon think they can go in pushing up prices before photographers just say 'stuff it I'll stick with what I have'?  Ok they're not going to want to answer it, but it does need feeding back that they can't go on increasing prices and expecting people to quietly accept it.  Two new primes introduced  with prices more than doubled; the super tele 600mm announced not shipped - re announced  with a $1000 price increase over the previous announcment!  Do they  have no understanding of what it's like out here?  How do they propose these price increases are passed on to clients?

24mm and 28mm USM with IS?

I waited for them, the priced me out too. I'm only a poor 1st photographic assistant.

Bring memory cards and take pics to post if you can please.  I would be interested in results from iso's high, middle, and low range.

Thanks.

I'd really appreciate feedback on the following: Shoot the same thing at ISO 12800 on both bodies, see if there's a discernable difference in the images on the LCDs.
EOS 1D X, EOS M2, lots of lenses

On the 5D3:

See whether you can replicate the "black ring" issue around very bright points of light.

Shoot a glint of light off something, or maybe just the ceiling lights. Zoom in in "Playback" mode; have a look.

Now go to the camera settings menu, find "Sharpness", turn it down to minimum, and try again.

Enjoy your play!

Nuro.... Not sure if you have said anything about purchasing 5D III but if not, have you place a order for 5D Mark III or are you on sideline?

Thanks,

5d3: pls chk if iso 6400 = ISO 3200 from 5d2 or better. That'll do for me.  ;D
I knw going by the specs it should be better than 5d2. Just curious.

If you could test and compare the weather sealing of the 5D III vs. 1D X for me that'd be great. Tell me which one gives up first.

Yes, please bring RAW files at ISO 12600 and above!  I cannot believe that they will not post raw files for true assesment of noise.  With NR software I can make miracles too so why not post the original stuff.

please please bring an hdmi cable and see if you plug it in during live view if the lcd goes out or stays on!
if it does go out, see if there is a setting that lets you choose to keep it on.
thanks!

Yeah here's one, why are Canon always measuring ISO improvements based on Jpegs, which are compressed and usually put through the in camera noise reduction.

It's hardly a bloody measure of ISO performance is it Canon?

Same goes to Nikon.

From ISO 6400 up I would be more than happy to see noise levels and DR in dark areas.
What I would check on your place:
1. Look for a scene, where you find a subject, which is not quite dark but comes from light shadow to complete dark.
2. Set exposure not under or over and in such a way, that :
a) the subject's luminance level was in the very bottom (left) part of histogram
b) there was enough light in the scene so highlights of the scene where on the very right side of histogram
3. Make pictures (or descibe) of what you see on lcd in the dark areas of the subject.

Is it very noisy? Do you see banding? Compare them to each other and even better to 5d2 if can have one with you.

This could tell something about DR and real iSO usability in difficult lighting conditions.
