I got my 5D recently for $950 so I won't get hit that much by depreciation. Don't think I'll ever buy new body anytime soon.

Guess I'll put a couple 5Dc pics in here from the other day.

I'm wondering whether Alejandro's 5Dc is getting old and fault-prone. Mine certainly isn't, but I doubt if I have a tenth of his shutter clicks.

Just wrapped up a shoot for a video featuring a new iPhone Application: The video was shot with a 7D.

OK, make that less than 1/100 of the clicks that he has :lol:

I'm just curious - what has this to do with the 5Dc?

The owner. Here's another non-5D issue:

OK, I'm ticked off -- I had a disruption of the force just as I was posting a "long-winded" reply to the below and it all got lost in time, like tears in the rain...

IVIax wrote in post #10134072 (external link)
Alright, I'll ask a stupid question -- doesn't such a small aperture cause diffraction?

I read (here and elsewhere on the web) that you can close down the aperture more on a FF vs. crop camera without worrying about diffraction, but what would the limit be? f/11? f/13? f/16? f/22? f/32?

Or is diffraction only a pixel-peepers worst nightmare and doesn't come into play when printing?

So, what you could consider a "normal" range for getting a decently large depth of field with the 5D would be say from f/8 to f/16, at which point diffraction is beginning bot not really noticeable.

But, two areas that need special thought and attention are macros, where at extremely close shooting distances depth of field is measured in millimeters, and landscape/scenic shots where you want both distant objects and very close objects to share the depth of field and be reasonably sharp.

So, there is a compromise when you use narrow apertures -- it's up to you as to how far you go.

Check out this page showing a guitar head shot as a macro at f/22, f/8 and f/4 -- as you can see, there is quite a dramatic gain in DOF at f/22. In fact, a lot of macro shooters who struggle with this problem resort to "focus stacking" (shooting with one focus point, adjusting the point back or forward, shooting another, repeat, then combine (stack) the shots in software.

Shot with the 1D3 and 100mm f/2.8 macro:

http://www.pbase.com …g/feb_26_09_gui​tar_macros (external link)

Now, consider the next example. I was standing on a little foot bridge looking up this stream. It had two waterfalls, one way up in the hills, and it had rocks right below and slightly in front of me. I knew from experience that the closest rocks wouldn't come out "sharp" using a "normal" aperture, so f/22 it was, using the 16-35 set at 27mm. It would have been much worse at 16mm -- I owuld have had part of the bridge to deal with:)! I also had to use a polarizer, even at f/22, to get the light two stops down so I could use a slow shutter speed.

In the full shot here, if I look at the original and view it at 100%, you really can see fine detail at the uppermost falls, and below I'll show you a close crop of the rocks at the bottom edge.

Shot with the 5D, 16-35 lens, f/22

IMAGE: http://www.pbase.com/tonylong/image/101785097/original.jpg

Now, looking closely at the very close crop, maybe the fine detail isn't quite as sharp as it would be at f/8, but I wouldn't hesitate to print this image large. I don't because there was an errant breeze that blew a patch of vegetation into a blur:(:

So, what do you think? Was the compromise worth it?

My 5D came today! :D

Here are a couple of the first pics from it--not the greatest pics in the world, but definitely a start. I'm hoping to get out and get better acquainted with it sometime this weekend. :)
