I'm looking to upgrade to a 5D later this year. The main reason for this is the higher dynamic range.

But there is another reason. The "depth" of the colours it reproduces. Can any of you lucky 5D owners post some pics that demonstrate this phenomenon ? I can't really explain it to my wife (who is a bit sceptical about spending £1800 on a camera).

It's to show her that the upgrade is worth it :-)

Cheers

Gary.

Thanks grego. I've tried that before, but you have to sift through loads of "normal" pics to find the good ones. A lot of those photos look like they could have been taken with any camera, unfortunately.

I'm after some examples that are easily identifiable as been taken with a 5D, i.e high dynamic range, that special colour reproduction and "depth".

Gary.

Gary, feel free to reference images from my Pbase galleries, if it will help you in your "quest". All pics in the galleries linked from the frontpage (except for the hummingbird snaps) were made with the 5D, using a variety of settings:

Unfortunately for your particular cause, I've grown quite fond of b&w conversions, and obviously those won't assist you with your argument in regard to color depth.

Not sure if these are what you have in mind or not, but they're a good cross-section of pics taken with my 5D and various lenses.

And some jpeg straight out of the camera during a live performance (70-200 2.8 and 15 FE). Exif in the pic, but all at 1600 ISO. No PP, just resize. Needs some PP because of the mixed light but right out of the camera they are pretty good.

I would say that now you have quite a variety of samples :)

Quickben,

Here are a few that I have captured with the 5D, that I think
show some of the image quality and dynamic range that this camera
is capable of.

A Barn:

A goose:

A train (not a fantastic shot, just for reference for the next shot):

A 200% (YES!, 200%!) crop of the train shot above:
http://sdwike.smugmug.​com/photos/72170465-L.jpg (external link)

That last one was of course taken with my sharpest lens (70-200f2.8L),
and I was apparently less shakey than usual . . .

You almost have to see the 5D images at full-resolution, or printed to really
appreciate the DR and IQ and detail that it is capable of.

If you really want to convince your wife, have her portrait shot with a 5D.

I looked through the first few pages of these and just about all of them have exif attached so that you can difinitively say they were taken by the 5D. There are some very good shots there as well as some more casual shots.

The final product is largely due to the abilities of the photographer in the post production phase.

I can say that this is an amazing camera for the price that gives exceptional quality. I shoot totally in RAW so my shots are subject to my abilities in photoshop.

Feel free to browse through my gallery which is in my signature line.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

Well, there's this:

IMG NOTICE: [NOT AN IMAGE URL, NOT RENDERED INLINE]
5D Sigma 15-30 at 15, not polarized. Landscape with saturation and contrast +2, IIRC. Straight resize of the JPEG; no PP.

Wow. I am impressed, I too am saving to buy a 5D this year. I have to say that these pictures tempt me to mortgage the farm to get it now.

The 5D is my next purchase, so I am not buying another big item until the end of the year. I have to work 40 days to afford it. I won't make it until Christmas. :( But it is something to look forward to.

Edit: forgot to ask: Jon, did you use a filter on that shot?
