  • For the train, you probably want multi-zone focus/AE.   That's because the train is quite a big part of the frame & moving. The other two planes, you will want single zone focus/AE.  The planes are ...
  • - clean uncompressed output, ATOMOS recording would be useful - 3X display, instead of 5X. - focus peaks for video, who can MF without it! - wifi control, which lets you record movie on/off - hot ...
  • That said. The 70D is waaay better video AF camera. Sorry Joystick is a jokestick for video. Dragging AF box around, which may latch on to objects it crosses, is just not as useful as touch & ...
  • Who cares about reception, if your in a cave and want to put your 70D/6D camera on the ground at an angle you can trigger it with your phone.  The best part of the phone is the remote shooting IMHO.
  • Philip Bloom, who is normally a MF guy, reviewed the AF of one of the CS100's and admitted it was able to track faster, and surprised him that it was useful (he had not reviewed the 70D yet and ...
  • 70D as an upgrade to a 60D for a still shooter. - you get the 7D AF system, which is better - you get LCD touch screen menus & AF (if you only use view finder then this is a wash). I use a loupe on ...
  • 70D. It is solid still pics camera with very good AF stills, and best in class for DSLR AF video. The 7DMII is for people with special needs, it costs more and to get the added value from it, you ...
  • Sigma 50-150 f2.8 is better for lower light, say event photos in doors, more like a play/music recital.  Its very good for the setting sun.  For sports during daytime like soccer, the 55-250mm f4 ...
  • So I notice you list 5DMIII on your gear, so have you tried it with Tonkina 16mm? I tried it on a 5DMII and found the UWA distortion rather challenging to master on a FF.  It really forces one to ...
  • Interesting ... for me at night I like low ISO, to keep shadow noise/artifacts down. I find then f2.8 rather useful. I also am a bit surprised about the mostly f18-22? A lot of lens the sweet spot ...
  • Yeah, docs and the run and gun, and walk-about shots use hand-held more often. I have a shoulder harness for just that kind of stuff. However most UWA shots for video, I tend to use a slider or ...
  • The Tokina 11-16mm 2.8, is probably one of the best UWA. One feature which makes it interesting is that at 16mm you can use it on a FF camera as well, you wont get that with any canon ef-s lens. ...
  • When you shoot manual you want to check exposure. You can look at the scale, but that shows you one number. It doesn't show clipped channels (peaks which exceed max value, they dont have a well ...
  • Again we are talking about sudden cloud change, Ive hd shoots where clouds are passing rather quickly. Note the aperture and shutter is locked down, which are the major artistic choices. Now the ...
  • R2D2 is bang on. Great suggestions. I would add two additional settings. 1. Read the RGB histogram.  The idea is to set your exposure manually so there is max. peaks with no clipping.  Any clips of ...
  • http://www.dxomark.com/Lenses/Compare/Side-by-side/(lens1)/239/(lens2)/967/(brand1)/Canon/(camera1)/895/(brand2)/Canon/(camera2)/895 For what DXOMARK is worth, they give the edge in Sharpness, ...
  • Replied in wild guess
    DXOmark among the Canon kit lenses, ranked the 15-85mm the sharpest. Sharpness has been my biggest problem with kit lens (as my 18-55mm IS II is a paperweight). I also rather like the UWA range. ...
  • Replied in wild guess
    I would like the 15-85, as the perfect walk about. I do think its over priced, even though its better. Perhaps body only is the way to go. I tend to use the Sigma 18-35 f1.8 the most for 70D ...
  • Ok thought about this a bit more, and it goes something like this. 10mm for NX1, aps-c 1.5X actually gives 15mm FF equiv. Now that can be 4k @ 24fps. 10mm for 5DM 2/3 is actually 10mm. Now to get ...
  • Its waaay better than budget camcorder footage. APS-C sensor size means better colours and low light. Get the STM 18-135 lens, its probably all you will need for a well lit shot. Two important ...
