mmm..then most of the time, 1/4000, 1/8000 these kind of speed is used to capture wat sort of stuffs?Originally Posted by zhang3feng
i think use to capture those shadowy figure which our eyes cant see...
like the movie- shutter
Reading thru the manual is always a good thing to do mah, there r info that can't be written in or on the camera..
Just curious, what r those needless functions and gadgets that u r refering to?Originally Posted by Tetrode
And do u mean Nikon is not far behind in term of technology or the tendency to include needless functions & gadgets?

"I WANT ONLY THE BEST & EVERYTHING BEST!" then takes out peanuts from pocket to trade with the best DSLR.. LOL offence huh~

One really doesn't need a lot of the functions (included in the camera bodies nowadays) to take good photos - e.g. a gazillion AF points, Multi-segment metering, CFs. Heck, there are still a lot of people using their manual focus camera bodies and producing good work (not forgetting all the people/artists who used cameras before these electronic wonders came out). You don't need the likes of a Canon 1Ds mk II (or whereever is the latest and greatest at the moment) to do that.
As a matter of fact, the more complex the camera is, the more that gets in the way of real photography. I'd bet that half of the functions and thingamebobs that are on cameras nowadays are hardly ever used.
I think that the functions are used..depending on the user.Because function usage varies from user.And the manufacturer cant possibly make a different camera for a different shooting style, so they just include all the functions, which results in most not being used, IMO.Originally Posted by Tetrode
and since where did you get your comparison from? I would like to know. Pulling nonsense analogs from thin air isnt going to help the threadstarter.Originally Posted by edward1
I dare to say when I put 2 pics in front of you without any exif or hint of which camera they are from, you would be pretty lost.

Canon = Fuji Film?Originally Posted by edward1
then FujiFilm = Kodak Film?
for ur info...
Canon chose CMOS as their main sensor, less for 1 DSLR(i think).
Nikon has a no. of different sensors for different bodies.
FujiFilm is using their own hybrid Super CCD.
different sensors = different properties which in turn might affect picture quality.
never in my mind do i for once feel that Canon's colour are those of FujiFilm's quality. i'll say Canon has their own characteristic.

Dreaming... 14mm f2.8, 16-35 f2.8 mkII, 85 f1.2 mkII
i'd like to see newbies load film and mount lenses on a screw leica. or use a tlr. or a rollei 35. a 5x4 view camera... before i believe that!Pick up almost any camera body designed before 1985 and you will know what I mean. You don't need to even read through the manual to know how to use the camera.
even more recent bodies have non-obvious functions/controls. e.g. the nikon fe2's ae-lock. on the other hand i didn't need manuals to figure out the canon 300d and 350d - very straightforward controls! easy to learn - only inferior ergonomically.
yanyewkay, i agree with u. i use nikon, but i prefer canon's colours & wb.
i like your joke~ LOL! but it's lame... u think using soap powder ah?Originally Posted by edward1

agreed~! i allow the kids to play with my camera during one of my event recently.. and all those photos which they had taken are just photos.. no meaning, no story no feeling..Originally Posted by zhang3feng
Aahh but I did say 'almost'Originally Posted by d7t3
Sure, a newbie would have problems with almost any camera, new or old. But for experienced old farts, it should be a different story.
Took me about 15-20mins to learn the 350D; which is 10-15mins too long for me.
Have had no need for ae-lock on my FE2s. Never used it.

Good Camera .. Good Lens .. but . not = To Good Pic ...
No good Camrera ... No Good Lens .. But You still can get Good Pic if you got the Skill ..
All in All .. Good camera good lens .. We are there just to push the button ,,,
I would choose canon. I heard on fedmiranda.com or somewhere than most people who use canon won't change system. Furthermore the best optics and the most expensive optics rules. I remembered i saw some where on a Korean website that the world's most expensive lens is the EF 1200mm F5.6L
ok, peace. we just have different experiences. i'm happy with what i use, hope you're happy with yours.Originally Posted by Tetrode
