I don’t know about the UK, but in the US USB-C is becoming the new standard. It is what my two computers have (Mac is only USB-C, my Dell has both) as well as the current versions of the iPad Pro.

Transfer is much faster than using WiFi either direct to computer or iPad. Also, USB-C lets you charge battery in camera, not sure if it would work with the lower wattage of the older USB chargers. If I go somewhere one less thing to bring, I already have my computer charger and a USB-C brick for the iPad so I can leave the Canon charger at home.

Hey, can I ask what Mac and Dell you are using? Microsoft don't seem to have USB-C on any of their products (which seem to be arguably some of the better specs on the market). Only the Surface Studio has USB-C and that's not a Thunderbolt port. I was looking at Macbooks though wasn't too keen on the spec /screen. Good point about using usb charging.

Taking the SD card out and into my pc SD port is working fine, and I'm actually starting to prefer it to using a cable

Again ...

I'm seeing quite a few new videos like the one below about the EOS R lately ... probably because the cloud of confusion is blowing away about how good the camera works. Admitting the camera is not perfect, the Slanted Lens leans in favor of buying an EOS R

TBH the performance of the EOS R didn't seem as good in this video as I have previously seen from it. It may be that the A73 has an edge over the A7R3 but in a previous test by the slanted lens, the EOS R actually matched the Sony in all still tests and it was only the Nikon Z7 that had issues.



For those who don't want to watch the whole thing, here's the text version with photos (external link).

I'm thinking their lens choice may have affected the results as if you watch the video I posted, the EOS R really shows how amazing it is!


Sony Alpha A7III - Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art - Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 - Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro
Sony FE 85mm f/1.8 - Canon EF 16-35mm f4L IS -
Canon EOS M5 - Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4 - Canon EF-M 22mm f/2 - Canon EF 11-22mm f/4-5.6 STM

The guy in this video overcomes the crop factor matter best I've heard so far.

Also, looking at the shadow lines, the Nikon images were not taken at the same time as the other two. Not defending the Nikon, just noting it isn't entirely apples and apples.

not my normal shooting( I never shoot people or events) But I was at an event called the invasion. More on this even can be read here https://en.wikipedia.o​rg/wiki/Invasion_of_th​e_Pines (external link). I will have more to follow, I had a lot of fun shooting this even though I felt like a fish out of water.:lol:

I have the Flashpoint XPLOR 600 HSS (AD600), but list it as the Godox for ease of typing. LOL!

The background lower left is a red A for Aramark and behind that is a stepped building. That is 1/2 mile away from where she was standing. With her being nearly 5’10”, I figure she was 35-40’ away from me as I filled the frame with her and cropped to 4x5 aspect ratio. This gave me about 1’ 6” DoF. Had I shot closer, this would’ve blurred the background more. Either way, I’m pleased with the lighting I got in the unshaded portion of the park, her pose (first time modeling) and the overall feel of the photo.

I don't even touch video so the crop factor wouldn't bother me in the slightest. I often see people say that Super 35 gives the best quality so when people do complain about the crop factor I see it as a "I want it because I want it" situation lol.

Well I often take all these kinds of tests with a grain of salt. In terms of lenses, they can easily use the exact same lens on Sony and Canon bodies thanks to adapters but by using different lenses, it doesn't make the test very fair.

My first attempt ever at 1:1 macro. Does anyone know how to change the aperture when doing a reverse lens?

Unplanned, driving by this hill and saw these guys drifting down and hopped out and got off a few quick snaps.

This is a little different from what I normally shoot: a cutting board that I finished last week.

Cool.

Set desired aperture, hit the depth Of Field Preview button and remove lens (while holding DOF button in). Once reattached, reversed, viewfinder will now be darker depending on how far you stop down.
A cheap 50mm lens with an aperture control on the lens will allow you to stop down only for the shot, giving you a brighter viewfinder before the shot.
