and shooting it tungsten then comparing the blue noise. I've put the test off because I'm sure it will annoy me given I shoot primarily hotlight.
Your testing inspired me to do testing yesterday, with my 5D2 and my P45+. Last night, I did a Tungsten Test, using Profoto Tungstens, and comparing the Blue Channel of P45+ to the 5D2, the P45+ looked like a Clunky Snowstorm of Funk, whereas the 5d2 was pretty smooth. Same scene, same ASA (400). Obviously it was the ASA that killed it, but still, in the real world, every shot ain't Bright Light California.
And for the record, I have no dog in this fight. I'm just looking to learn. Ideally, I'd love to arrive at ONE camera system and sell the rest. I'm not looking to be Jack of All Trades. But I'm willing to let the chips fall where they may. But for me, Usability in general, in the real world, is my main driving force. And if I was really truthful, I'd rather use MF, because I grew up on it. But again, the chips can fall where they may.
But I was surprised when I toggled on the Blue Channel. Again, advantage Canon.
For you, Christopher, being a Tripod Guy, why are you even testing this stuff? Just throw on the P65+ and get on with your life. If you're a Tripod Guy, the P65+ is the only choice, to me. The tripod makes everything MF possible.
