  1. great answers, verz helpful. Thanks again guys ! I'll go with the EF mount, since it take M42 and OM. thanks again !
  2. Hey guys, Need a help, has anyone had experience with adapting adapter (m42, olympus om) onto a lens turbo / speedbooster (zhongyi canon ef to mft) ? The reason why I am asking, is that i would save costs by buying just one speedbooster (130 euros) for canon EF mount, and then just simply add a dumb adapter onto it of my choosing like the olympus om (there are no cheap speedboosters for olympus om) or m42. I just dont know if the optics allow this. p.s. what is your favorite adapted bunch of lense for mft ? canon fd ? minolta md? m42 ? Thanks for your answers
  3. has there been any updates on the 45 mm focusing ? thanks man have a nice day
  4. Panasonic (and to some extent even samsung and sony) have at least tried. I remember holding CM1 from panasonic, at photokina 4 years ago (or 5 ?). they have not seen much success :(. I think @Andrew Reid reviewed the CM 1, with some decent photos http://www.eoshd.com/2014/11/panasonic-cm1-review-part-1-smartphone-first-impressions/ ... i don't think the phone was a big success though. I think it had limited screen size, stupid recording limitations (bugs with lens) but otherwise if they'd improve on that, i think they would have a good phone. it seems they dumped it in the trash and didn't improve it anymore. Let's see what this red is about. although price is steep.
  5. See, only thing YOU do is insult, you never post any data to support your argument. even Andrew called you a guy who jumps from topic to topic and that there is no point in arguing with. What I can't understand is why @Mattias Burling could upvote your comment which had zero added value.(BTW unfollowed you just right now, when you support people and arguments like this) " I mean, did Canon steal your girlfriend from you? Did they bully you on the playground and take your lunch money? Did Canon get drunk and smack around you and your mom when you were a kid? " and you have been reported. "smack my mom" ? how low are you bro? it seems you are amateur in various fields not only photography...
  6. To be honest i cannot understand myself why i am even replying to you. your arguments are pure trolling, let me ellaborate on that: 1. "The real problem is..." you have not brought a single argument which was supported by any data nor logic. If you think cell phones will not ruin all camera sales think again, i bring you the lastest evidence, feel free to read it (i know you won't, cause you probably can't read or something) http://www.businessinsider.de/gopro-woodman-smartphones-competition-2017-3?r=US&IR=T, https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2013/dec/13/death-of-photography-camera-phones , http://www.economist.com/node/21542796, http://www.businessinsider.de/chart-the-smartphone-destroyed-the-consumer-electronics-market-2017-6?r=US&IR=T mind you i didn't post articles from petapixel and alike. but hey if only me, the economist, business insider and the guardian think this way, there must be something we are not seeing. @Trek of Joy have a look at these if you think my cahrts are outdated (the most recent ones i could find, feel free and prove me wrong with other research, you know it takes time though to make one ) the difference, you asked for it, is that I showed you the point why is this happening (fuck if I have enough time, at my departement, i will make a survey on why people dont want to buy DSLR anymore and i guarantee you that OVF is one of the reasons) and that most of the companies continue to ignore it. but after seeing your comment I am pretty sure if canon makes turd you'll be the first to buy it 2. "The problem is professionals purchase cameras based on lenses..." wait so what are we talking about right now ?! LOL dude. So at one point it consumers at other point it's "pros" sony has you covered from 10mm to 400mm aperture wise from 0.95 (1.4 AF). The same more or less applies with m43 and to certain degree fuji (remember these manufactures exist in this mount how long ? 4 years ?) so IDK what the hell you are talking about but if professionals in your point of view are the guys with 600mm+ lenses let me teach you the word sports and wildlife photographers, which i would really love to see the numbers e.g. how much of these pros are comapred to pros (archiutecture, landscape, portrait, wedding and blah blah). IF you want to compare the quality have a look at the latest sony GM lineup and compare it to 10 - 20 year old canon nikon lenses. | This whole debate about PROS is so useless. this is a blog for enthusiasts with honest reviews, you talk irrelevant shit, and clearly having that many comments proves you are no "pro" to have that much time on your hands, so why do you care about others. A pro can have phaseone while you will use t2i 3. "And if a professional needs video.." i cant understand the stupidity of this argument. IF I need a pizza I go and hire a cook, or i go to the nearest kebab restaurant... wtf are trying to say ? is 6dii a PRO camera ? no. 4. "And your irrelevant references to Kodak, Nokia, etc... will not change the facts" . JESUS mary, it's not trying to change the facts :D it is a fact, and the circumstances duyring which the events happened are very similar. how is that irrelevant ? irrelevant would be if i told you i had a ham and eggs for breakfast. 5. "Mirrorless still only accounts for 25% of sales.." LOL... "ONLY" if 25 % of the market (not sure if it's that much) is only for you well... let's rephrase it. APPLE has less than 15% marketshare on smartphones YET they account for 83% of the all the profit of the market. that is also irrelevant isn't it ? :-D http://www.idc.com/promo/smartphone-market-share/vendor anyway i didn't even say anything about mirrorless, you jump, as @Andrew Reid said, from one point to another without any added value. I invested time to write this, please be so kind and don't make me write such a long story again. Sadly... but it was due to their mistakes. What is more sad, is that customers, executives, companies in general, and of course some members of this blog, do not want to learn from this. Not in all cases, think of Tesla, SpaceX they are now rewarded, although you are right the road was far from easy. Let me think of another example. What about the microsoft surface line ? the studio and book PCs (although with crappy Video Card) are an innovation worth talking about and people respond to it. What about the fidget spinner hah :-D
  7. Have you ever touched NX1 or Panasonic GH4/GH5? if that what you are saying is true, it proves again canon is delusional. They offer according to you the best Focus Peaking, but the worst 1080p till now (to the point nobodywants to use it for video, then again remember how everyboyd is saying that ergonomics of mirrorless cameras are awful and blah blah you wouldn't use it for video or any paid work, why offer the state of art focus peaking on such camera?). Wow that makes a lot of sense. No point in arguing with you.
  8. Kodak was the first to use digital sensor Nokia had the first touch screen display GM was the first to offer electric vehicles What does it matter being first. The problem with canon is the same as your argument. It's more than five years old, they have not moved since. Is is so much to ask for a competing product from canon ?! others can do it, why can't canon?! it's as if BMW, mercedes, toyota and Renault were all offering flying cars but Audi refuses to do so, even though customers want to. And no, no matter what argument you bring, canon 6d ii is not on par with competition (as long as video is concerned, photo side it's nothing special, nothing to wait 4 years for).
  9. IT is precisely what is happening. Can you blame the customers? hell no. Companies are building products people don't want. It never fails to surprise me how arrogant photography community (and the photography companies especially) are. It's 2017 , SEVEN years after instagram was created yet not a single camera has a direct button for instant sharing on social platforms :-D . Yes, it is stupid instagram, but look how many people are there and how many photos are being published there, if you want people to use your cameras instead of cameras on their smarphones you have to adapt and persuade them, that investment in your product is worth it. What did we get instead ? higher mgpx on every camera, wifi and NFC implementation which is pure headahce (IMHO sony & GoPro are the best so far, but still far faaaar away from please to use) the list of shortcommings goes on and on... go and tell the management of canon that this is important... lol i bet they will listen to you, when even some members of this forum don't get it. But hey , "canon is the global leader"
  10. God damn, this forum is freaking cancer, you people, who cannot STILL realize, let me remind you camera market is shrinking faster than iceberg which hit titanic and mostly DSLR segment. Those people are the SAME people who constantly shout that CANON is still leader of the global camera market (it is true, but only of DSLR, well guess what is happening to DSLR), well great, a polished shit a still shit, look at the "huge" size of the market, of which the canon is number 1. Still dont see it ? let me help you translate. See that low numbers of DSLR, that is what canon is leader of. Yes yes you are completely right, canon is leader, but of an ever shrinking portion of a declining market, (which is perfectly most due to the incompetence of NIKON and CANON making a camera that appeals to the millions of people who are used to smartphones.) so yes please continue your blah blah about canon being a leader, while ignoring these huge changes. Oh you probably also forgot about this (https://photographylife.com/sony-overtakes-nikon-in-full-frame-sales) but who cares right ? canon still dominates. Oh and please dont even bother to reply if you try and say some crap about canon not depending on camera division and another blah blah. they are to blame, did nothing for 15 years but artificially slow the innovation, and now specifically under deliver on their cameras. Why would anyone even want a camera that doesn't show you what the picture's gonna look like in 2017, wake up. Mirrorless or whatever Litro is the future, if there even gonna be any for camera companies, again thanks to incompetences of canon and nikon. @Ivanhurba summed it up perfectly @Trek of Joy you gonna enjoy this. "cheers"
  11. any data to support this ? i could say as well and make my assumptions e.g. I see hundredrs of people walking around and making videos. "For photos iphone is good enough" and other similar assumptions. Clearly there is a lot of people complaining about video features (their sensors are still the weakest) in canon DSLRs. Look here how many people are happy with the canon here ? but hey, panasonic and sony heck even olympus and fuji, seems to justify our needs better. And if such a small companies can do it better, then it just proves that canon is living in another planet. I could nnot have said it better myself, and this is a prime example of a customer that canon has lost. Think again if these numbers are not relevant. YES talking to all you guys who think of Canon as some business, strategic GOD ! pekny napad so 4k videom na gratulacie ! drzim palce nech sa dari
  12. This is not 1950 where companies don't give a damn about customer's preferences, How arogant you must be to think so little. Of course they care. "pure" business strategy wil lgive you nothing when all your customers will enjoy competitor's products. don't be naive, these companies exist because we buy their product (not me, has not give a single euro to canons crap)
  13. Enjoying your recent articles very much ! Feels like good old times :)! Eoshd renesaince !
  14. just because you think it is not so, it doesn't mean it isn't, no matter how hard you want it too. As i said million times before, LOOK AT THE CURRENT GENERATIONS, they are all used to instant reaction, they know how their photo will look like, hell they even get animations over their faces. Now go and tell them that this camera from canon (with OVF, no real DoF view, no real WB, NOTHING) is great and you will like it. They laugh at you. I am telling you from a perspective of a guy who himself didn't want any DSLR (not only because i have to think twice before i write the acronym : "digital single lens... blahbalh) but because it's atrocity, a thing of the past, a more difficult way to get the picture, and i am 1992, now imagine kids from 2010 (yo go grab that OVF, awesome camera)... dude, this is not about Canon or Nikon, whole photography is in jeopardy. its sad people don't realize this, but ask yourself how many of your friends (outside of photo video business are taking photos with system cameras ? )
  15. You are right. But that does not mean they might be wrong you know. Also Kodak did their research, did their decisions based on that, and were number one... at least for some time Don't think you can't fall just because you're too big, it happened before and can easily happen again. I hate to say that, but look at GoPro
  16. Nice trolling, on high level ! 10 out of 10 would give you 10 stars !
  17. I am sorry Andrew, i stoppeed reading when u wrote : "maybe Canon's the future" ... U probably spend too much time alone with your perfect expensive camera. On one side u are talking about people using old 5d ii, enthusiasts not willing to pay more than 2k for camera yet u say canon's expensive 4 year old uninmovative trash cycle is the future... Wow, liks u dont agree with tony's ideas i dont with yours and franklu what havebyou been smoking ? Some canon sponsorred weed?
  18. No definitely not, however this blog was praised for being honest. Giving ideas & tips about how to shoot amazing videos with low budget ILCS and vintage lenses. Not to mention many technical posts. Now having read this weird kinky shit about super expensive ancient zero innovation dinosaur of camera that produces flaterring color compared to another is just meh, because u feel that way, yeH that is just "meh" Had you been praising canon all along i guess we'd be all still shotting with clumsy dlsrs and sony would still try to compete with their a mount line...
  19. The good things first : 1.finally an article about a camera comparison with a video, haven't seen that in a while here. 2. Seems like a good combo (good stills camera with decent video, however lacking resolution.) thought for the price it should be, and that's about it with good points. the bad : 1. PRICE, for real ? are we seriously even considering to compare a 6000+ camera to a 2400 one ? the price is just astronomical (people buy cars for their families for this price) 2. easy pleasant COLOR - :D this made me laugh. So you are saying that this camera gives you awesome color straight out of the box, no need to edit, yeah perfect, the thing is I dont know any pc (under another 5000) that would even be able to edit that mjpeg 500mbps shit. AND this is a subjective matter. Andrew you forgot to mention that Chris and Jordan specifically said that many many times over in the view that this is purely subjective. Moreover they are testing sub 2000 cameras with some being much less. Honestly i disliked the color in that video, oversaturated, punchy, crushed blacks, frankly this video is far from pleasing on account of colors and DR. bleh but that is just me. some may love unnatural red over saturated punchy color. 3. DR - do you honestly think that this footage with the edit you did has better DR than a7s ... suddenly it's no issue ? the footage looks like it's from a 7d. 4. Crop factor 1.3 IS NOT full frame. Everyone being disappointed by 1.6-1.7 on 5d IV and 1.3 on a 6000 body is okay ? please. The awful: 5. That thing is enormous. good luck stabilizing that. (another rise in costs) 6. No articulating screen 7. No focus peaking on a body for 6000 ? lol 8. 8bit for 6000 ? lol 9. Codec I mean, if anyone is doing sports photography and can justify the price, go for it sure, for video ? you'll be back to ILCS or real 10bit cameras in few weeks after using this dinosaur oh and i forgot , the ugly : 10. EF mount Cheers, meant no offense thanks for taking time to review, keep them coming !!! mickey
  20. Hi JazzBox, i have the first version of zhongyii speedbooster E mount - FD canon, and E mount - M42 . What i can say i achieve great resutls with Nex5r even with pics ( not video only. However, blue spot occurs if you point it in the sun, or you don't use a hood. That might be solved with the second generation. I do hope so. They cost however as little as 100 Euros. on the video it is less of the issue. . however i do think metaboens would do a better job, the only question is : "is it worth that amount of money ?" why not rather get a full frame ? cheers
  21. whahahaha :D this post made me smile ! thanks Andrew.
  22. But the price of 2000 USD ! add another 500 and you have a7sii, or two a6300 / gh4. i don't know man, the video must have been miles ahead of others to even consider paying 2000 for non constant aperture, no raw photos hybrid one lens camera :| anyway, will you add video too Andrew ?
  23. Rolling shutter, although not a dealbreaker to many
  24. John Wick! That was just pure action. A unique movie these days.
