Graystar: The rules are never broken. Whenever you think the rules are being broken, what it really means is that a rule is being applied that you're not aware of.

Divide that first image into 8 rows and 8 columns. Go 5 across and 5 down. You'll end up at the box where all the action is...the teeth into the arm. 8/5 = 1.6 It's a perfect Golden Mean placement.

The rule of thirds is actually a simplified version of Golden Mean placement.

And than you have forgotten about the rule of all other devine numbers. I use 5ths and 7ths a lot, I even made them as cropmarks with magic latern hack on my canon DSLR

I always thought it was so stupid to only foliow the rules of 3s. Now with Magic lateen on my canon DSLR I came to make my own alternative grids witch also indicate the rule of 5 and 7. It bring s more complexity, yet I love it as they really work.

Francis Sawyer: Moronic. They add this useless "4K" instead of a decent bitrate.

These cameras record garbage-quality images. They use excessively high-resolution chips and pathetic bitrates. Same boring mistakes, over and over.

know what you are talking about. With protune you can get higher bitrates on a gopro than on a 5D mIII

Sorry but, I was more impressed by the new redget lineup that was presented at Photokina. And I own a (bigger) carbon transfunctional benro tripod right now...

Mr Fartleberry: Anything I can't do in Lightroom?

I think someone in here should learn working with Photoshop. I hate the look of an ND grad for landscapes where suddenly a tree or something in the front plan also came darker. I rather make multiple exposures and use HDR techniques. Do mind HDR techniques can also be used in a subtle way...

seems like an interesting camera to me. Yet a little bit too many bucks to me...

I'm quite more happy with the 1080p at 60 frames than the 4K.
Yet 4K is good to use for for example shooting wide angled landscapes and recomposing to a 1080p or 720p image in post.

the new 8-bit 4:2:2 1080p HDMI output could also mean there will be no lag anymore when switching to life view.

"Unlike the C300, the EOS-1D C does not offer zebra striping or peaking focus aids, which the company sees as being more important in single-person operated documentary settings, rather than the rig-and-crew situations it expects the 1D C to be used in"

- I'd still like this camera more than the C300 for documentary work. The photo camera looks are just so great for incognito shooting. Yet I think this zebra thing is just handled well by my smallHD dp4 monitor/EVF

Chris Cuennet: Ridiculous!... What interest to put lenses Canon on a NEX?... Nex is made to have a " compact ", small and light equipement, the one who wants the excellent objectives Canon will prefer to put them directly on a case Canon with a sensor who is called a sensor... Really ridiculous!

Now add an ND filter array in this adapter, and FS100 gets a real plausible option.
