On What is equivalence and why should I care? article (2034 comments in total)

To put it in other words. MARKETING people are (professional) liars. They would push a lens as being "2.8" when, in reality, their light sensitivity is a lot less (depending of course of the relative size between sensor and lenses)... There should be LAWS to guarantee that marketing people should be limited to stating FACTS in RELATION to an approved standard.

Frankly, Nokia have something BIG in their hands... I want one of their phones just because of this:

rondhamalam: What ???????
Nokia ??????
What the heck...

iPhone and Samsung Galaxy are far better, and already implementing photography features.

Nokia belongs to old people. Struggles hard but it's decision to select Windows phone is a total disaster. Lack of apps and boring interface.

If Nokia concentrates on Android it will help.

Bodhi Dharma Zen: did it lost the T3i remote flash trigger?

I read it in more detail, it retains the wireless capability, which is a nice thing about the previous camera..

but I couldnt find if it will work in ETTL like the T3i does, all it mentions is wireless solutions using their remote transmiter... so I have doubts about it.

On Canon EOS 5D Mark III studio samples published article (287 comments in total)

beyond fanboyism (for any side) there is something tangible, objective, its called reality, and we humans when we want to go beyond theories and beliefs (or fanboyism) need to see at the objective data, which speaks on its own... here is another proof about Canon's problems with DR: http://home.comcast.net/~NikonD70/Charts/PDR.htm#EOS%205D%20Mark%20II,D800,EOS%205D%20Mark%20III,D4

Vitruvius: I have been reading the comments here for years but it looks like all the smart people have left the building or have stopped offering valuable opinions for frree to idiot trolls. No point wasting any more time here. I just hope DPreviews keeps up the quality of their reviews otherwise this site is really headed down the tiolette.

couldn't agree more... back in the day you could learn a lot in the forums, I used to find tips, good reviews, and sane discussions with the occasional troll.. now, its the other way around, fanboys arguing ad nauseam

Frank Palm: Truly disappointed on this upgrade, in my perspective 5D Mark III is old even before it´s on market. AF should have been on mark II, resolution is the same as mark II and the viewfinder just sucks. Way to go Nikon, Sony and Panasonic.

full of Canon fanboys, this thread is

Bodhi Dharma Zen: First tests, not useful for focusing problems and using JPEG, but still, a good effort from DPREVIEW. That said, what we are seeing with the release of the 5D3, is that Canon is way behind in sensor technology nowadays. They couldn't release a 650D for the same problem, and we can speculate that the results we see in this test are due to processing and not the quality of the sensor.

Canon... wake up... you cant ask such prices without underlying value, and obsolete sensors is not the way to keep customers.

for those who don't have a clue on what DR is and how badly it affect us (Canon user's) take a look at this:

Jexmark, extrapolating from known data is how one can make hypothesis with know facts (the pictures that are getting to the surface, that they didn't increment resolution, and so on). Now regarding the "professional photographers" you mention, you are right... the fact that someone earns his living from taking pictures of weddings says NOTHING about their understanding about the complexity on the field, , still, when using Canon, all of them are suffering from about 2 stop LESS Dynamic Range than other photographers using other gear...

In the end, all my ramblings are because I'm loosing those 2 stops, and I don't like having a mediocre product in my hands when I work hard to buy the best I can, I expect a company (any company) to GIVE ME ABSOLUTELY THE BEST THAT IT IS TECHNOLOGICALLY ACHIEVABLE, I demand that and no less. But big companies are concerned about costs, about making their investors happy, not about the general public...

I wonder where the ad hominem "critics" are now... so fast to attempt to castrate. First, look for the facts, analyze them, escape your bias, and then give an opinion.. but do not judge others, that's one of the MAIN problems with people in general.

Canon desperately need new sensors, I bet this is they main concern... what we public can see are the efforts of their millionaire marketing efforts, and marketeers are speciality is to sell, not to inform, they will make all sort of abracadabra's just to push something to the market, even when the heads of the company know their product is, at best, competitive, but certainly not better than the competition.

Exactly Josh152 and nathanleebush, that's exactly the problem with the new Canon... I imagine they are working like crazy in new sensors, that's probably the reason they didn't presented the successor for the T3i, they didn't have anything new to show, they couldn't stick the same sensor as the 5D3 and so they are (IMO) in trouble. Sure, the 5D3 is a great camera, yes, there are other factors to consider than the quality of sensor alone, no, I wont sell all my gear and buy Nikon or Sony cameras... but... we users should notice they reached the limit of their current technology, and instead of applaud them for asking $3,500 for an obsolete sensor, keep them focused in that customers demand no less than the best.

Alejandro, if you agree, why would you need technical arguments? Still, the answers are there, look at DxO graphs, do a comparison regarding Dynamic Range and high ISO performance, compare Canon (specially mid and lower ranges) and you have the appropriate facts to state that current Canon sensors are mediocre.

http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Cameras/Camera-Sensor-Ratings/(metrics)/

And here, a concrete example (and for me a fact) about the quality of ISO 25600, you tell me about if it is usable or there is any night and day difference with actual Canon sensor's performance:

Henry, learn to argue first, ad-hominem is an old logical fallacy used by people unable to state coherent and logical arguments. Read about it in Wikipedia, I'm sure you will find it interesting.

Xellz, NOT AT ALL, I'm a user, not fanboy of ANY brand. I have been using Canon for years because, in the past, they used to have the best sensors out there, sometimes way better than any other brand. But now, they depend on their DIGIC processing to make JPEGs look nice... no, I will not change to Nikon, I'm invested with Canon as I have some lenses, so, it is just a big disappointment.

there are other examples appearing on the Internet as we speak... take a look at them.. its the same technology they have been using for a while, they don't have any really new sensors to offer, currently Sony is ahead of them in terms of high ISO, Dynamic Range and others, check DxO for instance, Nikon is using Sony sensors and look how far they can go, more than 1 stop in DR and better high ISO performance...

oh, an Ad-Hominem, good, that's an old logical fallacy used when you don't have real arguments. Interesting. Yes, it was my first time dealing with that technology, and so I ask and make my own tests to see how it works, its called learning. Now, what can you tell us about sensor technology? why are you so averse to Nikon's? are you other than a Canon fanboy? please, explain.

lol right.. first, you don't know what I do or my expertise level, and second, give a counter argument instead of babbling, that way I can take you seriously
