To all the people ragging. Well, i guess you need to let it out somewhere.
To the few that didn't mind my news. Thank you
I didn't get to hold the thing, I didn't get to shoot it either. They were showing it with a 85/1.2 and a 50/1.2 but they stated the lens couldn't resolve what their sensors were capable of. this is why they are also considering a bit of bigger mount. NOT MF! so don't start that crap.
Annie has been shooting Canon, Leaf, H1, Phase anything she wants. As one of the guys here said that he has the shot before the camera comes to his eye. EXACTLY!!
Is the viewfinder bigger in MF? SURE! But only in the 33+ MP backs. But a cropped MFDB on a MF and the image becomes darker and smaller. But they are also so much slower!
I doubt Annie signed a damn thing for Canon other than a print. No offense to some of the reps here. But the majority of reps are the biggest geeks in the world that get so excited to be on a set. I am sure they heard Annie was in town spoke to her rep and wanted to come by and show off a new piece. I was about ten feet away during a break and noticed the camera and then from speaking to the other people on set learned about it. Later in the day the rep befriended the Assistants and chatted us up as he could not go near the shooting or the set and Annie was busy with the celebrities and clients. So he was looking for somene to geek out with.
It doesn't matter what I say because no one else will catch up with Canon.
Unless Nikon throws some kind of Hail Marry and make it. They will still be second.
Annie likes the speed of the Canon and quality of the file.
As for her shows. I don't think any Print from the shows or her books are digital. This is all old film i.e. RZ, Mamiya 6, 7, Fuji 670 & 690.
And Yes, I do admire her work and the work of many other shooters for the ney sayers. That is why I got into this business. For anyone ragging on me and living outside of NYC. Come to NYC, LA, Paris, London, or Milan and try to make it and pay the bills. Ahh, there is a rude awakening. Enjoy the weddings, kid portraits, family portraits, pet portraits, Online dating portraits with your $1,000 rent for 3,000 sq ft.
Come try to compete in a major market. Then let's see what you do.
Yes, I assist to pay the bills and I have been trying to leave it and have done so and able to survive. I still get pick up work after the holidays and when i need cash.
Yes, it is an abbreviation name on my post. I am not sure if Annie would be happy or not. But I did this because of all the GEEKS out here and dreamers that want a bit of information on what to expect. EXECUSE THE F*&K out of me. YOUR WELCOME!
So I hope the IDIOTS who ragged on me go out and buy the New bestest greatest glass Canon has right now. Then come November Canon scews you all and announces their newest bestest glass WITH A NEW MOUNT. Take that.
So go spend your hard earned dollars and then take it in the @$$ when you have to sell it at a loss because it won't work with the new body that you want. (sorry Michael, one of the guys annoyed me)
I said I would give up my H1 because I don't like the speed or the lock of 100 asa. If I need to let her rip, I want that ability. If I want to comfortably shoot 400, I want that ability.
I would love the ability to have a small system to carry around that can do it all. Canon Speed and flexibility, MF & Leica quality. WHO DOESN'T? If you don't, then go get your self an 8x10 and be my guest.
I just want to shoot and have that the easiest way possible. That use to mean a 645, a few lenses with NPH or NPZ and drop it at the lab.
Now it is computers, hard drives, processing software, freezes, etc..., etc..., etc...
