  • +1 I am interested in upgrading my 5DII as well but pattern noise is the only issue I have with the camera (yes, I've played with a 5DIII and autofocus is significantly improved but I have a 1DIV ...
  • It isn't just the colors that people like in #2, it's the direction of the sky leading to the subject rock formation which improves the composition. The best thing about #1 is that the tide ...
  • If you look at Canon mounted DxO tests (5DsR), the 35 f1.4 is the best in that focal length. Sharpest, least distortion and best transmission (which sounds like yet another camera:car analogy, but ...
  • So everyone has assumed that you've adjusted aperture and ISO without success... HSS works but does suck down flash batteries - what it does is extend the duration of the flash until the full frame ...
  • Replied in Canon 5d S
    There is another perspective to take on this and that is that the higher resolution (5DS in this case) will get more from your lenses than a lessor sensor. It's not that you need to change lenses ...
  • Getting on a little myself, I agree with Bongo Jack. You can consider it treating yourself or that if you buy the 1DxII and like it, it's great for at least 6 years. At 80, you can decide whether ...
  • All this and HDR in post... The 17mm TSE is great in tight places but it isn't clear that you need that. Good luck, -Mark http://www.pbase.com/markland Future: the direction of time for which chaos ...
  • Funny! I've worked at such places. I might say obstinate but NIHS...nice. If they were to consider such a choice we'd have seen it in the 5Ds - the high resolution camera. It may also be that Sigma ...
  • What's worse is that it looks like they shot it from an Amazon office window! That comparison tells the story, thanks. -Mark http://www.pbase.com/markland Future: the direction of time for which ...
  • It might be interesting to see if the 24TSE would hold up to the ZB25... Thanks for posting. -Mark http://www.pbase.com/markland Future: the direction of time for which chaos increases.
  • Replied in Used 5DMIII
    When selling I go to KEH, see what they will buy it for and what they sell for and then pick a price in between. You should do more or less the same. When buying, you get a warranty with KEH or ...
  • and a hiking book: http://www.amazon.com/Rangers-Guide-Yellowstone-Day-Hikes/dp/1560371579/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1458215600&sr=1-2&keywords=hiking+yellowstone Bunsen Peak & Osprey Falls ...
  • I mostly shoot hi-res since resolution was the primary reason for buying this -helpful for work in seeing/showing detail, of course for landscapes and portraits. If the shot is meant only as a ...
  • First, $1000 is a great price if it's all in working order. You might get the body only for $700-800 so if the lens can be sold (not necessarily easy since it's a kit lens so there are a lot of ...
  • Replied in ISO 50
    Yes, analogous to pushing film... push TriX 400 two stops, it's not 1600 film but make up for it in developing and it sure seems like it.... -Mark -- http://www.pbase.com/markland Future: the ...
  • it was marginal on my EOS3 as well. Worked very well when I didn't wear my glasses but the switching was too awkward to manage for me. It's helpful for working with groups of people though. Not ...
  • It seems to me that you've got it right PK - Canon unified the 1D series for the sake of going full frame with their sports cameras, it seems odd that they'd split their mid-level 5D series (not ...
  • That debate was strong in the 2000's, early on it was film v. digital. Digital focused more on higher ISO and resolution. AF was also a pretty big deal that's improved a lot. Fuji and Sigma made ...
  • Wedding or landscape photographers might disagree. Getting detail in a white dress AND a black tux makes for a better photo. Allowing the choice of details in clouds and shadowed features is an ...
  • Replied in Try this.
    First, meter's always expose for grey so don't expect that it's all managed by the machine - you're involved in selecting exposure. Second, cameras are designed to meter wide open and calculate ...
