  • I clearly was! Thanks for correcting me. I do love that site, I'm glad I was wrong.  I feel bad if anyone listened to my misleading comment...
  • These tests were done on a 1DS mark II, which is a 1.3 crop camera, and 10 megapixels.  I don't know how the app on the website scales test images based on crop or megapixels, but I get the ...
  • Replied in Audio Novice
    I haven't experienced that, but will look out for it. Good to know. I guess the longest audio track I've dubbed in this way was less than six minutes. For the OP, I googled iPhone microphone and ...
  • Replied in Audio Novice
    Synching audio is quite easy with Sony Vegas or equivalent. It is easier if you clap, like the clapper they use on movie sets, or have another loud and "sharp" sound.  But even that is not needed. ...
  • Replied in Audio Novice
    For best audio quality, I believe you should look into a small audio recorder. Built in mics should be sufficient. That will give you the most flexibility, and great audio quality. I have a Tascam ...
  • I wrote a response that I was going to post on EOSHD but didn't bother. They seem to like to march to the same drum. I basically disagree with the article. It does seem that Canon is behind when it ...
  • Created discussions 70D wifi - quirky, or just me?
    As I've gotten older, I've become less technically savvy than I used to be.  That isn't right - I just don't care as much as I used to, so if something doesn't work right away then I just give up. ...
  • Replied in Cards do fail
    A few weeks ago I had a card fail. I was walking around DC taking photos. I turned the camera off occassionally when walking. One time I turned it back on and it told me it had a card failure. I ...
  • You'll want a shotgun mic. This is directional – it will mainly pick up sound from the direction it is pointed in. So in a performance, this will limit how much is picked up from the people around ...
  • Newegg is a terrific retailer.  I buy from them all the time.  I live not far from a fulfillment center, I'll order in the afternoon and have something the next day when choosing regular shipping. ...
  • I agree. The STM will facilitate video focus and be a lower price point - and I expect the 6DII and 5DIV to have dual-pixel sensors.  I also expect the 6DII to be a lower price point than the ...
  • I have the 55-250 STM and have rented the 70-200 f4 and f2.8. All the 70-200 lenses have better build quality and wider aperature. Arguably, they also probably have the things the previous poster ...
  • I would warn the OP – which was the point of my post earlier – focus during video with a large sensor camera is difficult. I am surprised anyone would recommend manual focus on video for what the ...
  • When I did a comparison – it was purely subjective.
  • Replied in BIGGER!!
    Good point. I do think a lot of people want a body like the existing M. And if I started to collect M lenses I might too. So tweak it, give it the dual pixel sensor, and keep selling it. But I'm ...
  • Replied in BIGGER!!
    I have little interest in the current EOS M. I don't like the compromises it makes: only small with the 22mm, and not as fun to use as a large camera with a large grip and lots of controls. So, my ...
  • Replied in Focus Tracking!
    It seems to me that the only advantage of a DSLR or mirrorless camera over a camcorder for video is to get a narrow depth of field. However when taking advantage of a narrow depth of field, focus ...
  • Thanks for all your help Jim. I've tried to read the card on 5 devices:  A pc with USB card reader, two different laptops each with integrated card reader, a 70D, and an S100.  For the cameras, I ...
  • No luck. sudo fdisk -l found a different sdhc card, but not the broken one.
  • I'll definitely try when I am home this evening and report back.  Thanks.
