I can't imagine anything less than a full sponsorship would motivate a prominent photographer to switch brands.

Maybe noink just cut him off the payroll

So I just saw this from Magic Lantern regarding DR in Canon and how it steps that up a lot.

Magic Lantern increases Canon EOS 5D Mark III dynamic range

Magic Lantern has long been a fan favourite to “unleash” the features of Canon cameras we wish they had. Lately this has included pushing what we can get out of the sensor.

As reported on Planet 5D:

“Tests have been done by ‘Marsu42’ of CanonRumors, which show numbers of up to 15 stops of DR when using this feature combined with the ‘dual_iso’ module that Magic Lantern already includes in their nightly builds.”

Marsu42 said:

This means that for example on 5d3, iso 800 with ML has more dynamic range than iso 100 with Canon :-> … and at high iso you’re getting 7% more dr which is nothing to sneeze at, esp. since it builds upon Canon‘s advantage vs. Nikon: d800@6400 = ~8.3 & 5d3@6400 = ~9.4 ev. According to sensorgen.info the 6d should add another 2/3 stop (once the code is adapted for it) making good ol’ Canon the superior sensor for low light high contrast shooting.

Since this is a new software update I’d recommend you proceed with caution, however, these are exciting results for both stills and video shooters!

Perhaps Scott Kelby switched to Canon because Canon (from what I can find) is leading in DLSR sales to consumers. Since brand loyalty is such a big deal to everyone (Exhibit A: This thread), maybe he feels his business will be even more profitable by pulling in all of the Canon owners, especially amateurs with their first DSLR who are trying to learn exactly what he is teaching.

In other words, it may be a business decision for Kelby Media more than what he prefers to shoot with. Of course if he switched brands he'll have to have some reasons why he did it other than "to make more money".

It's just my two cents...

The ML dual ISO hack is very clever, but AFAIK it's processing every other line with a different ISO setting and blending the result together. As such, it negatively affects vertical resolution; which is fine for video shooters as the sensor output must be down sampled to produce video resolutions anyway. For stills shooters that need DR (mainly landscape guys) resolution is usually crucial, so the this feature may be of limited use.

Why do people come up with these silly, corny names like "Explorers of Light", "Masters of Light", and "Painter of Light". It sounds so pretentious and goofy. Well Kelby is a goofball so I guess he belongs there, lol :D


Skill is very important but a fully charged battery is very very important :lol:

But only in the dark areas if I understand the explanation on the ML site correctly. Therefore, a portion of the image where there is not a lot of contrasty detail to see anyway.

But it's the dark areas where Canon sensors fall over (when you lighten the shadows, and want detail) ;)

That said - I read a paper written by one of the developers (that described the technique) and he was talking about the blending of lines needing some work, so it's entirely possible they've improved the algorithm, as that was some months ago.

I don't know. In my experience leica owners are the first to admit that it's just a camera. But people who never owned one seem to love painting pictures of elitist snobs.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.
