5D CLASSIC admirers, assemble! (4)


5D classic owners, show us your 5D photos and talk to us about us why you love the 5D!

And for all the newbies and non-5D owners, may this thread help you in making your decision.

And for everyone who participated in the old thread: carry on as usual :lol:.

Trivia: this is the first thread in the gear forums ever to hit 10,000 [Edit: now 20,000!] posts and make it to its second iteration. Ironic, really, given how long Canon took to update the 5D.

**EDIT BY CDS***

We have a growing number of *Fan clubs revolving around specific bodies.
I thought I'd make a collection of them, so we can find them and keep them organized (merge in new ones etc)


The Master list is here



Feel free to point us to other models or threads that could be merged.


* WARNING: By posting in this or any of the linked threads you are wholly admitting in no uncertain terms that you are a snot nosed, milk drinking, knee biting, curtain climbing unabashed Canon Fanboy who's opinions must be taken with several large grains of kosher salt.

HAHA, ill just quote myself here.

Is that technically how it works? For every stop down, you get another double in ISO? So at ISO3200 -2EV is ISO12800?

In before #5.

One stop of ISO does double or halve the ISO. Of course, when you are dealing with intermediate, "H", and "L" settings you are getting software boosts in there, not just "hard" electronic boosts.

OK, just saw you post in the "old" thread --

People talk about "pushing" the ISO in post-processing when they can't get a proper exposure at the max in-camera ISO so they simply raise the brightness/exposure in processing. You can call raising the brightness by one stop "the equivalent" of raising the ISO by one stop, and since it does the "same thing" that's OK except how it can sometimes confuse people who don't understand what's going on.

But sure -- raise the brightness of an ISO 3200 in PP would do the same thing as if the 5DC had an "H2" setting where the in-camera software amplified the brightness to be the "equivalent" of ISO 6400.

Note though that this is software boosting (as is ISO 3200) and, if you are shooting Raw may not be the best approach. An alternative is to keep your camera at ISO 1600 (the last "true" ISO) and then use your Raw software to do what you need and you will have more control over the outcome. For jpegs, though, you pretty much do what you can/need to "get the shot".

Nope this thread became the most active in the gear sections way back at the latter part of the first iteration -- nothing else I believe even has a second iteration (as far as actual gear goes).

Heh! Not sure what you mean by this -- you mean you zoomed the preview all the way and noted the greater resolution, or is this some intangible enthusiast thing:)!

Ok lets continue this

This is just one of my test images, sorry about bad composing and lights..(got my 5D two days ago)
ISO1600, 125mm (70-200 2.8L), f/4.0, 1/50s

Btw, I also have 40D and I have to say, I almost dropped from my chair when I looked my first ISO1600 and 3200 shots from 5D. Those 40D and 5D cannot be compared in either way, 5D is a winner in all respect when it comes to IQ.

Given the differences in the LCD's its hard to imagine you can tell anything, but rest assured it will show up on the computer when you upload them.

^^ true dat. The lcd in 5D is kind of krap. Please just use it to check histogram. Its just like too "cold" and bright even when set to minimum brightness.

That's why I keep second-guessing myself, I'll take a pic and then check the screen (Chimping?) to make sure I got a decent shot but then when I zoom in it doesn't look so great. I think the screen on my OLD laptop is marginally better so I haven't seen a "true" or accurate representation of the images yet.
