What is the Hotlinks thread you ask?

Here's how it works.
It's a little like your current "Gear list" link in your sig (if you don't have one yet look here;
http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=138747 )

... but instead of a list of gear, you put a list of your favorite links to THREADS ON THIS FORUM.

They can be review threads, or great posts you've made that explain stuff, etc.
Anything you want.

ben_r_ started the ball rolling asking for a way to consolidate his own gear reviews... this was the spark that created this new idea.
So have at it!

How to LINK to your Specific post.

Notice in the upper right hand corner of this post there is a number one ( #1 )
This is the hyper link to this specific post. Next post in the thread has.. marvel of marvels,. a number 2 :) and so on. Copy the link embedded in that number IN YOUR OWN POST by right clicking on the number and selecting "copy link location" (or whatever appropriate term depending on your browser) to link directly to your own post in this thread. Do not use the number of THIS post, use the number in YOUR POST.

Here's what it should look like in your sig


[URL=http://photograph​y-on-the.net/forum/showpost​.php?p=6530636&postcou​nt=1]My Hot Links List[/URL]

(or it could say "My reviews" or "my favorite tips and tricks,. whatever you are linking to)

[B][I]Note, replace the link to this post ( #2 ) to yours!!!

5D3 Vs 1D IV Chuck Westfall
http://www.ronmartblog​.com ...nboxing-first-report.htmlexternal link

I had a chance to ask Chuck Westfall (the real one) of Canon USA about a rumor that he said that the 5D Mark III’s AF system is better than the 1D Mark IV’s. Here’s what he had to say about that:

I didn't say so in so many words, but for the most part the 5D Mark III's AF system *is* better than the 1D Mark IV's. Here is the comparison:

The number and distribution of high-precision cross-type AF points has increased on the new 61-point AF system relative to the 45-point AF system used by the EOS-1D Mark IV. Moreover:

The overall AF system speed of the EOS-1D X including lens drive is superior to that of the EOS-1D Mark IV on a lens for lens basis. The overall AF detection speed of the EOS 5D Mark III is superior to the AF detection speed of the EOS-1D Mark IV.
The level of AF precision for 5 of the central area AF points on the 61-point sensor (i.e., the dual X-shaped cross-type points) is superior to the level of precision for any of the AF points on the 1D Mark IV.
21 cross-type AF points in the central area of the 61-point sensor are functional with maximum apertures as small as f/5.6; None (zero) of the cross-type points on the EOS-1D Mark IV are functional as cross-type sensors at maximum apertures smaller than f/4.
The 61-point AF sensor has twice the low light sensitivity as the 1D Mark IV’s 45-point AF sensor (EV -2 vs. EV -1).
The 61-point AF system supports AI Servo III, which is superior in subject tracking stability and consistency compared to AI Servo II found on the EOS-1D Mark IV.
The 61-point AF system adds a greater degree of user control for subjects with various characteristics of acceleration and deceleration such as birds in flight. There is also more user control for the way the camera handles switching between AF points in automatic focusing point selection mode.
The 61-point AF system not only has 16 more AF points than any of the 45-point systems, it is also 20% wider in coverage (19mm vs. 15mm), making it easier for photographers to keep their subjects within the active AF area.

There are only two areas where the 1D Mark IV has an edge over the 5D Mark III in terms of AF. They are:

Lens drive speed: Because of its higher voltage battery, the 1D Mark IV can supply an initial burst of power to select L-series USM telephoto lenses (limited to EF super telephotos) that drives them twice as fast as normal for the first second of operation. The 5D Mark III can't do that because its battery is lower voltage, and also because the camera body is not designed to accept higher voltage even if it was available.

Frame rate: Obviously, the 1D Mark IV can fire at 10 fps vs a maximum of 6 fps for the 5D Mark III.

7D Vs. 1D MkII
http://photography-on-the.net ...p?p=11404863&postco​unt=26

5D3 = 13MP @ APS-H (1.3x) and = 8.5MP @ APS-C (1.6x)
7D = 18 megapixels (5184 pixels x 3456 pixels)
Cropped image area of 5DIII to same field of view as 7D = 8.487 megapixels (3568 pixels x 2379 pixels)

To calculate;
Square the "crop factor" 1.6 x 1.6 = 2.56
Divide FF MP (22 for 5D3) by 2.56 = 8.59375 Close enough :)
1.3 x 1.3 = 1.69
22mp / 1.69 = 13.0ish
