DrGerm: Haven't read this book, but own McNally's other two. Both very good reads, so I have high hopes for this one, too. If you don't expect a manual, his writing tends to be very entertaining, and you still learn a lot without even knowing it.
Maybe you were expecting to him write 50 shades of grey for ya : )
@dash2k8 - that is because you just wanna admire him like a God but many of us wanna be like him or beat him so we are interested in his techniques and definitely wanna learn from him. Of course we choose what we want to do with his books : ) I love field manuals...
German Instaglasses change colours for youJapanese Instaglasses change clothes for you
I will buy the Japanese copy : )
IcyVeins: HAHAHAHAHA The beginning of the end for CANIKON!
if you can ask IOS not to sign any contract with CANIKON or ask large retailers to return all CANIKONs then yes your statement may come out correct....
for now....you are just being du*b
pretty amazing...but it....looks kinda ugly. LOL!!! can't wait to see a 85L mount on this thing : D
Frenske: Depth of field: 0.0004m at 0.47m and f/2.8. LOL ... even at f/16 it is just 3mm. I am not sure the world really needs lenses like this.
Frenske is a camear hooligan! LOL!!!
thanks for the info Joseph
GreginVA: I am 2 for 2 with dud Sigma lenses, including a 150mm OS Macro which will periodically decide to have problems with autofocus and with image stabilization. I won't buy any more Ford cars and I won't buy any more Sigma lenses, particularly when there are reasonable alternatives from Canon and Nikon. The specs for this lens look good, but Sigma does not have adequate quality control.
i am 1/2 for now...my 50 1.4 AF sometimes chooses its day off too.my 70-200 so far hasn't given me any problem yet and god it's @#$#ing sharp!
FINALLY!!!!!!!!!! i have glistening tears on my face now!
CameraLabTester: At this focal length the VR better be really good...
and Nikon, don't forget the cup holders, the GPS antenna strut, the umbrella rack, the iPad hook slot, windshield wipers over the filters...
no massage parlour?
some people just have problems to read...........
1Dx : )not Nikon D4.....i wonder why....
KatManDEW: Yawn... 5th usage of the same old sensor. Canon obviously has nothing new to offer and continues to milk old technology. This is dissapointing especially after the lackluster 5D3 got spanked by Nikon, but it's exactly what I expected. I would have bet money that the T4i would have the same old sensor as the T2i, T3i, 60D and 7D. I have some of these cameras, and a significant investment in Canon glass, but I'm worried about the future of the company in which I am so heavily invested...
you can always swtich to Nikon, seriously......not sure what you mean by invested heavily though but i am sure Nikon would love you better. Go ahead!
facedodge: Who are these people taking photos? Horrible
this is the first time i see people criticizing "test shots".....he should change his ID to ID10T
Sam Carriere: The fact is, looking at this kind of "sample" on a computer doesn't tell anyone anything. It's always really funny to read comments from people who like to pretend otherwise and who try so, so hard to sound like they know what they are talking about. They don't.
never assume you are one of that "someone" or "the" please. you think too highly of yourself : ) people do read comments + analyzing sample pictures and this is photography, if you don't analyze sample pictures what do you look at? lol....
most kids hate sigma because it's not a "legit" brand like canon and nikon, and, of course they haven't even seen an image produced by sigma camera. somehow the same kids can comment on how their dream cars ferraris/lambos can perform but sadly they haven't even seen one in real life.
well...having that said...i won't pay $999 for this either....but i would pay 999 for SD1m...that camera is SICK!!!
semorg: 7D will either be discontinued as a model family or 7D II will be a full frame camera below 5D III to compete with Nikon's upcoming D600. Either way such a feature update via firmware update is Canon's way of closing the 1.6X crop 7D product family.
why can't you guess a 3D? EOS 3 was one of the film camera equiped with Eye-Control and 45-point AF system...forget it...you probably have never used film before...why bother, right?
is Nikon closing their 1.5x crop product family?....Nikon can go first then Canon will....NOT follow. LOL!
Fred Briggs: Hmm... if they can increase the buffer from 15 to 25 with firmware then they are just giving users access to a capability that was in the hardware all along. You don't get that sort of increase by just tweaking a few software routines. In other words it seems the original hardware was crippled to offer no more than was deemed necessary at the time.
Apparently Canon have now decided to release a 7Dn in the form of a firmware upgrade, presumably because they don't feel the need to release a new model, or are not yet ready to do so.
I'm just surprised they are not charging for the upgrade - probably would if it were practical! This has happened quite often in the computer industry, where users would buy an upgrade only to find it just consisted of a firmware change which unlocked a capability which was already in the hardware.
Fred, go to your car and take out all the doors, bumpers and trust me your car can run even more efficiently..
Lee Jay: So, Canon removes video crop modes from the Rebel series with the T4i and fails to add it to the 7D via this firmware update. This is one of the two main reasons I never bought a 7D in the first place and the fact that they removed it from the new Rebel and not included it on the 5DIII may indicate they have dropped this highly-useful feature. Disappointing and ridiculous. I guess I'll keep my money.
yeah you keep your money
tkbslc: I feel bad that nobody seems to care about the GXR.
Ricoh is not well regarded?! wow....this kid certainly is new to photography then.
