Multiple times on here it's been stated that you can not change the Kelvin setting on a Canon camera without entering the menu system.

All that was done is the main dial was rotated after pressing the FUNC button. [the same way as described as on the nikon system]

As if this would be the one thing to make someone switch. :lol:

Also, I love how you claim skelby was unprofessional or rude in his post when you're the biggest D in this thread.

Directions for dealing with arrogance on this message board:

Step 1. Open User Control Panel
Step 2. Open Buddy/Ignore Lists
Step 3. Type User Name in "Add User to Ignore List" Box
Step 4. Click Save List
Step 5. They cease to exist in your POTN universe
Step 6. :)

Not sure how the Nikon works, but I have my WB assigned to the set button. Can't get much easier than that.

That is what I did on my 1D bodies. On the 5D3, you had to use the Q menu or go into the deep menus.

On the Nikons, there is a WB button that you press and you just scroll the wheel for the different Kelvins you want. You can also change the amber/blue microadjustment without opening a menu. Just a bit quicker. I always felt like the 4 main controls should be super easy to change (shutter/aperture/ISO/​WB.) I shot a lot more with the 5D3 than the 1DX or 1D4.

No, no one would switch because of that, just like no one would switch because you can chimp easier. It is just a bonus.

Can you do it with a 5D3? I just looked at the Q menu for assigning buttons and can't switch the m-Fn button or DOF preview button to do that. Personally, I would love to have mFn be for ISO control and DOF-Preview be for WB control. You could quickly and easily adjust both with the camera on your eye.

some people really take it personally when Canon isn't the top dog.
I think anyone should be able to agree that more dynamic range is better, just as higher clean iso is better, or cross type af is better than non.
I know i got one 6d user seriously mad as i called the outer focus points if the 6d antiquated. Yet outside of that i personally think the 6d is a fine camera that doesn't have banding and is great at high iso.
Like thomas has been saying some things are just facts. Like the d800 having a better sensor.
I'm trying to stay in the waiting game for now. What i need to do is upgrade my camera body so i would like to see what Canon hss in store. But whether Canon surpasses Nikon/Sony or not im not going to ridicule anyone for shooting with whatever brand they shoot......

The frequency of the "Nikon has superior DR" and "Canon has better high ISO" and "Canon has poor shadow recovery" and "learn to expose properly" and "get it right in camera" posts sometimes gives me the feeling that POTN is a like a repetitive fever dream. ;)

Just to weigh in with my own opinion, my motto is "get it right in Photoshop". Of course I want to do my best in camera, but I love Photoshop. That, among other things, makes me lacking as a photographer. But, I'm OK with it: it's the luxury that comes with photography as a hobby vs. being professional. :lol:

wow.......do you think people have similar discussions between say indesit and hotpoint washing machines and can become sooo abusive towards each other ?

anyhow every one knows the hotpoint 1200 spin speed beats the pants of an indesit or zanussi, even if it uses 1 watt more power.......

back to cameras then........shoot nice pics regardless of what you use


there are 3 types of people in this world, those that can count and those that can't

You have to take Scott Kelby for his word. Unless someone has direct knowledge otherwise. Having the sponsorship had to help him change systems by taking the financial burden off of it. He has earned the recognition he got from Canon with his presence in the photography scene.Being such a big player that Canon was willing to sponsor him is an attribute to his success. I would like to congratulate him on his success and wish him good luck with the new system.

DR is over-rated in most cases. If 12 stops isn't enough, he needs to read his own books on how to properly expose a subject, or install magic lantern and get the same 14 stops as Nikon.

I could care less any more. ;) It's clear that a lot of members on this forum want a sensor with DR. Go look at the Sony A7\A7r threads. Also, Magic Lantern is a bunch of hopefuls who want to get extra DR in the 5D3 but, the sensor in reality can't push shadows like the D800 without showing banding. I got tired of Canon and moved on. My gear list shows that my one and only Canon is the 1Ds 3. I urge you to compare it at base ISO with your 5D3. It will help you understand my position about DR. :)

How's the DR on your 1DS3 at 6400?

At the end of the day who really cares what camera system this guy uses. No camera is able to be the best at everything. They probably do that so guys like Jdizzle go out and buy ten of them.
