Greg VdB: ...and now imagine a product with a much more complex geometry, internal reflections, and imperfections that you want to hide. Welcome to the world of mineral (crystals) photography:http://www.flickr.com/groups/29975458@N00/discuss/72157629532050618/(the pdf linked to at that page, "Advanced lighting techniques for mineral photography", is by far the best manual I've seen about photography of small shiny things - not just usefull for mineral collectors!)
Thank you for the link!!! :)
Where is the review???
If only many brands would do it in Europe!!! :(
utomo99: Why DIGIC 5 ? Why Not DIGIC 6 ?Canon SX270 HS using DIGIC 6
the bastards! -_-
What a royal CRAP! Most people here waiting for the 7D ii or 70D and they whant to sell us the 600/650 mark I(doesn't even deserve having the II!) o_O
To ad insult they release a LOWER model with WAY BETTER autofocus!!! X(
If only i did not have already lenses from this system i would choose other one in a heartbit! X(
Sdaniella: nothing wrong with padding filler models on the LOW END eco-budget lines, that's where the volume sales aimed at beginners predominate.
no need for 'lead innovations' whatsoever on these models, but the odd one now and then; so 'carry over' or 'trickle-down' features from higher models more likely than having 'exclusive innovations' in abundance on the lowest and thus cheapest models.
detractors should get over it; this isn't a new practice for any mfr; they all do it.
Guess u never saw the 400D Vs 30 or 40D pixels?
Sdaniella: disappointing to see Canon continues to withhold EOS-1 dual controls on its low-end budget beginner Rebel dSLR line, even though it has trickled down EOS-1 controls in 'mini' size for their PowerShots for a long while now.
when will Canon offer EOS-1 controls, and do away with Q-quick nav controls [as slow as other mfrs supposed quick 'nav' (and menu burdened) toggle/joystick controls??? it's getting old... Canon should 'Canonize' the Rebel series to match their higher EOS models and higher end PowerShots really]
if and when they do, only then would a 'Rebel' even be tolerably 'ok' for a 'basic dSLR' recommendation for beginners from me; otherwise, no, never.
Even worst is this unbelievable joke of changing really nothing!!! X(And the cherry on top: the lower model has WAY BETTER autofocus!!! x_X
corkymiller46: It's time to start including mbps to the video specs please.
sony? o_O Or canon?

Nikon sensors over time have continously been improving in dynamic range, color depth and high ISO even as the megapixels have been increasing. Canon on the other hand have been relatively stagnant in its sensor innovation and in its inexcsuable that in four iterations at such a competitive segment of the market that it cannot come up with anything better. I'm a Canon man if owning a G1X and a SX260HS counts. However if I'm going to upgrade to an entry or mid tier DSLR based on curent offerings I really cannot see why I would choose Canon over Nikon other than maybe lens selection and shooting video.
Thanks for the info!!! :O
I wish i could say the same as you: i am already "institucionalised" by several lenses and a flash!!! :(
fujidanny: You mustn't give all those negative comments!For me as a beginner it's very interesting to learn from the article about those possibilities, that you get by t/s lenses. For me it's a good input. Thanks a lot!For the so called 'Pro's': I think you're only envious, that you didn't write that article. Sit down and write a good article. Than you'll see: it's not that easy...Have a nice weekend! Go out and come down taking better photos...Fujidanny
this was NOT an article! JUST publicity!!!If you want to learn anything about T&S lenses or related stuff just google it because the only thing u learn here is that the 90mm T&S exist!
yabokkie: basically we use perspective control to get things within focus. some very simple tricks can put things out of focus. just raise one side of the plate under the enlarger in the darkroom where you can have much more control than on the site (like the paper can be curved, or you put two cents under the face and focus to the raised place, you cannot do it in camera).
now we can do it more easily and comfortably in the livingroom, and lens makers begin to use "optical bokeh" in their advertisement.
my advice is "do not do anything on the site that you can do later at desk" and the "perspective bokeh" is one.
THANKS yabokkie for teaching WAY MORE then the non-article, uh publicity!
Thank you!!! :)
JUST ANOTHER supposed article with half dozen nice pictures and no real juice to get from! Nothing to learn here, people DID use tilt for this more then 1century ago already!!! Good that he feels like he discovered the wheel! The article is just another one about publicity!!! And even for the canon lens at that! :/
Indeed like someone said: he asn his budy and the store get a few more hundred clicks from all this when i believe most of us would like to ACTUALLY learn something.A waste of time. :(
Sdaniella: to all those detractors/negators of shallow DoF images shot 'in-camera' on the spot with the mounted lens...
why not just settle for a focus-free, 'infinite' super-high deep DoF everything is in focus, via tiny apertured tiny lensed tiny sensored cellphone cameras (or something smaller than a dSLR), and photoshop all the '3D pop' shallow DoF to your hearts content POST-PROCESSED (ad nauseum)... (blurry tunnel vision lens-baby optional)
@Steve D Yue - even then u wouldn't make them happy Steve!!!AND...
then the FF group would start whining about it!!! ;)
some $1300 for a lens that does NOT even close the iris as ordered by the camera...from a white brand on top!
This confirms us all that Samyang has forgotten that their first major success, the 85mm f1.4 owns it to the fact that it was INDEED way CHEAPER then the options from the brands! WITH almost the same optical quality.Start increasing the price like Sigma is doing and in no time Samyang is be story like many other brands who propose stuff way too expensive! They still have a looooong way to catch sigma in AF and ANY automation for that matter! Naturally they can try a crazy move like Sigma did with the SD1 sold at absurd prices, well, actually NOT SOLD! And in few months they had to cut the price to less then half!!! That is what Samyang deserves also!
Clyde Thomas: Good pointers in this article.
Interesting not one mention of OOFA bokeh background separation with wide aperture. Not much strong strobist work either, other than little fill. Both techniques useable within the 10 minute limit, and both techniques could provide for less background hunting for something clever.
Also surprised no Tilt/Shift lens was suggested for unique focus opportunities for a quicky shot.
See samples of all these techniques at my web site. www.ctphotographx.comThe quicky portraits in the "faces in places" category.
Good pointers in your text.
Really Interesting would be that instead of free publicity we would get an article talking about all those techniques you say they could also cover.
Also surprised that absolutely nothing is teached for real in a critic to an article that at least gives some insights about what they say.Don't get me wrong, i did go to your photos and think they are indeed good(!)However when i read an article to see if i can learn something it is that what i am looking for: Learning&knowledgeIf i just wanted to see someones portfolio in the net... i would be doing that!
See samples of all these possible articles at this very same web site.
Have a good weekend!
And i would truly like to see an article from you! :)
dcdigitalphoto: Half a car!http://btlondon2012.co.uk/pano.html?view.hlookat=108.7207&view.vlookat=46.9770&view.fov=3.8609&imarkerath=108.7207&imarkeratv=46.9770
And cut building! Clearly another case of quantity versus quality! Fast food style invades photography! -_-
Images by Kipper: Is this the work of the poster? The description would indicate that it was taken by Mr. Bruno Battaglia and if he is not the person who posted the image then it should be removed from voting.Please clarify the situation as I really like this image, but can not vote on it at this time.Thanks ~ Kipper
@wilbegonia: I would agree deeply with you, however after reading what he wrote, i think mmodena was honest and did NOT pretend to be the one who make it. So i don't fell like any problem. And honesty should always be rewarded! ;)
007peter: (head shaking) I cannot believe the words coming out of this mouth! He just confirm 3 fear:- Canon P&S will forever stuck with lousy 1/2.7" sensor- APS-C camera has no FUTURE- Canon 70d will be release BEGRUDGINGLY, no 80d in the future.
I will sell off every one of my EF-S lens now. Heck, I might as well just switch to Nikon now.
i understand ur fears 007Peter!!!we can only hope canon wakes up in time!!!
dpLarry: The future is 2/3".
Please josh152 leave Bobbarder in peace! He spoke what SO MANY MORE PEOPLE WHO BUY APS-C AND 4/3 AND M4/3 and now even mirrorless APS-C think and feel! I don't know ANYONE who actually wants to carry a 600mm!!! But i sure know A HUGE AMOUNT that whant that reach!!!I understand your preference for FF, i really do! But you should respect other opinions and choices also! :)
Stephen_C: So, no 7D MKII in the works? Sad really.
If they want to leave that market for other companies... :LWell i guess pentax will be more then happy to fill that gap!!!
