CrashMaster: The way technology is going the photographer will be in danger of being made redundant.
Yep ! :(
I downloaded both the raw files from Canon 5Ds and Canon 5Dsr.
It seems that if i apply more sharpening to the Canon 5Ds raw file, I get much the same results as the 5Dsr but without aliasing ... What does everyone else find ?
Also, if Canon add the anti aliasing filter using in camera software / firmware (rather than hardware modification), why don't they give us all the option of swicthing the anti aliasing on or off as required. This would then mean we only need one camera model not two ... ;)
Maybe the clever Magic Lantern guys can crack the code to do this ... lol
Haven't Instagram been doing this for months ? I have it on my iPhone 6. :D
lem12: Lovely pictures and nice quality! But at this price it's nothing less than a tool for professionals.
Yep ... It's a fair price. Much cheaper than Medium Format and cheaper than 1D series. The 5D3 has just fallen in price lately as it's getting old.
nitroman: Am i the only one who wonders why they've never released a 4x5 inch version ?!
Yippeeeeeeeee !!! Looks like it might indeed be awesome ! Thanks for the tip off ... We wait with bated breath. :)
Am i the only one who wonders why they've never released a 4x5 inch version ?!
Is the AE Bracketing 2, 3, 5, or 7 frame like the 5D3 or just 3 frames as stated in the USA spec list ?
The USA site says this : "AEB: ±3 stops in 1/3 or 1/2-stop increments"
But the UK site says this : "2, 3, 5 or 7 Shots +/-3 EV 1/3 or 1/2 stop increments"
If shooting hdr to expand dynamic range of images a 3 frame AE Bracket would be an enormous handicap and a step backwards. Please confirm Canon !!!
So the AE Bracketing is just three frames like the 5D2 ? Even the 5D3 has 2, 3, 5 and 7 frame bracketing for hdr.This is a big issue for my work ... are we certain the 5Ds only has 3 frame AE Bracketing ?
Is the dMax of 4.0 good for scanning transparencies ?
So it's not what you know, but who you know ... and he got lucky.
Don't Getty realise that if they cut off the hands that feed them, they will eventually go hungry.
Getty has almost single handedly destroyed the traditional stock industry and continues to hammer nails into the coffin ... Thanks again Getty.
toomanycanons: First thing they'll do is change how photographers are paid for their images. From now on the photographer will pay Getty Images for the privilege of giving them their work. It's a new day.
We already do ! Photographers Choice brand demands $50 submission fee per image and Getty still rob 75% of the fee. Sad times. Getty, microstock and royalty free have killed the stock photo industry forever.
So why can't we all club together and do something about it ?
The fact that Getty and co have managed to get away with all this for so long is ludicrous.
The split should be 75% / 25% in the photographers favour.
This is what we should do Rashomon - create our own library that puts photographers first.
Why can't this be done ? Without new stock Getty would go out of business. We need some solidarity amongst the ranks.
For the life of me, I can't understand how photographers allow Getty to take the 75-80% lion's share of an image sale after we've paid for the shoot, edited and submitted.
This is why photographers are now going out of business as Getty has canibalised the photographic industry and raped their contributors to reap their own rich rewards.
