Anyone thinking about, just buy the 5D3. It's f**king awesome, and for any of you know me well, you'll realise it actually takes quite a lot for me to say that. Genuinely impressed so far.


Cheers, Dave.

That's a pretty crap review for someone who has used so many different cameras :D

Name the top three things you like about it...

At InFocus a MasterClass photographer (Peter Coulson) was using a Hasselblad. The detail was just amazing, a DSLR just isn't in the same league. He said he only ever uses it at ISO100 though, above that it's too noisy for him - but he's a super high end photographer.

Yeah I know a guy using a H4D and the detail in the files is amazing, especially in the shadows. But I think that more to do with the dynamic range and maybe the sensor size than pure resolution. I can get 40+ MP photos by stitching, but they still don't match the image quality I have seen out of MF digital backs.

If Canon release a 46mp FF camera with no improvement in DR, I am buying a D800...

I know I should ask this question in the flash section, but on an external flash you can get a cable that goes from the flash to the camera, what's the point in this cable?

to get the flash as far away from lens centerline as possible...

It lets you use a flash bracket. I haven't used one of those in years though, I shoot ambient light or off camera light.

On camera flash is horrid, off camera is much better, bounce if possible, but if not then a cable allows you to hold it away from the camera and not worry about expensive or tricky triggers etc.

I've actually seen some pretty awesome on camera flash work, but in general that's true, on camera is bad unless the photography's awesome.

I was browsing the show us your camera thread last night and I saw a photo (which I can't find now) with a flash that was attached to the camera but still had a cable coming out of it in to the camera. And I was thinking hmmm why?

yea I got the canon cable for that, I don't use the cable that often, but thats a cable that attaches on hot shoe flash on the camera to the flash. this cable was while the flash was still attached to the camera.

But now that I am really busy at work (not and I am glad my boss knows nothing about photography) and it may have been attached to the PC Terminal connection. A connection I have never used but the manual says it's for "The camera's PC terminal is provided for flash units having a sync cord"

Thanks for all the replys
