Canon General. I need an new xl backpack Started by daniela Saturday at 7: Finally ready to upgrade from a 7D So the AF-processor would need to put some additional effort into it. But that's no rocket science. Maybe the final reason is size. The mirror towards the AF-sensor would need to be bigger to cover the whole image area, probably hitting the shutter. Yes, you can put CDAF with it to see the 'entire frame'--but that will perform poorly. A vast majority of the light gets reflected by the mirror to the optical viewfinder--the AF module only gets a tiny amount, so the image is very dim and very low contrast.
It will perform very poorly if at all --much worse than CDAF camera phones in low light. If you send more light to the AF module eg. You'd need to remove the OVF to truly use contrast detect autofocus.
Then, you've ended up like the Sony a99ii--or might as well go mirrorless at that point! I was referring to the loss of the OVF.
See here: This is not the E mount system. It focuses wide open and has to be adjusted. Look here: I agree that each I call it "wing" of the PDAF sensor array sees only through one half of the lens, where it will be affected by vignetting on one side.
But even then the circle of confusion will scale linearly and the AF processor will perceive some pattern that it can match between both wings I agree, the pattern will be incomplete on one side. Of course this depends heavily on the lens performance, lenses with strong vignetting will have some impact. But nonetheless, it's not impossible. But anyway, I still prefer my mirrorless cameras, where I don't have to bother about AF coverage: In both cases, the subjects follow a relatively predictable path, which helps.
But I would say this is true much of the time in sports. When shooting runners - who are usually coming toward me - I change my composition and thus focus point depending on whether I have an individual or group approaching me at that moment.
It does feel like a lot of work at times, but I wouldn't say it isn't worth it.
Sacher--this doesn't only have to do with circle of confusion--as I mentioned earlier, this is also about angles. Here's an exercise: In a bright room, take a wide open lens and project an image of the room onto the wall so that you can see what's included in the frame.
Position a laser near the center of the frame. Without moving its position, shine it onto various parts of the front element--the projected image will include the laser no matter where you shine it. Also how a larger aperture provides more light. Now, position the laser a bit to the side--go about halfway to the edge of the frame. Now shine the laser to the left and the right side of the front element of lens.
On the opposite side, most of the laser will not make it through. This is how phase detect AF works--it samples specific areas from opposite ends of the lens--and there are physical limits to the angles. If it takes a downloadable Auto-Focus setting guidebook, it means, it is not that simple. Since my standard lens are between 16 to 24mm I do not need that critical focus. I downloaded the document and looked through the topics and some sample photos. It is actually a very good document.
Obviously, someone who has the 1Dx or 5Dm4 can vouch for its usefulness but it is impressive on first look. Oh, that's right. The more technology we have, the more complicated the camera. But is it really better for all of the complication?
I doubt it. Actually your comment just makes me cry. Seriously what on earth are you smoking. I'd loved to have seen Adams' keeper rate for the NFL or baseball.
Why mess with perfection? Those guys used either cut film or medium format because 35mm was just too small for their work. A monorail with full tilt, shift, swings, rise and additional manipulations are extremely difficult to carry out on DSLR's. PDL - The point is they would have used the best equipment availble for their genre of photography. Phase one A-Series blows anything canon makes out of the water. That would constitute the "best equipment available" for their genre of photography.
I don't see how going from 8x10 or 4s5 to format would have given them better equipment. The point is that they would have used the best gear for landscape - whatever they thought that might be.
Interesting - the sports photographers of their day mostly newspaper and such were using speed graphics. So much for using SLR's. There were some using Leica, but the idea of what we call fast glass and high speed sensors i. Most of the sports guys were shooting 16mm movies for high frame rates. Landscape shooters did not really start using format cameras until the emulsions came around after WWII.
Leica has gone digital; Hasselblad just introduced a mirrorless MF camera so has Fuji. So much for useless technology, right? The 1DX is not a camera to shoot what those guys were shooting at the time, or would be shooting today. Or maybe, if they lived today, they would use a 1DX and shoot action and sports, who knows? The good news is So many powerful focus modes.
The bad news Great Canon, recently released guide book for its complicated AF Nikon have something along the same lines with their Technical Guides, but they don't do so many of them. If you're in need of a small, portable light for the studio or in the field it might just earn a spot in your camera bag. Sony's a combines a proven 24MP APS-C sensor, a new 'Bionz X' processor, and one of the best autofocus implementations we've yet seen - all in a compact, affordable camera body.

As a 5D4 owner I am all over this like a cheap white suit. Below are some of the most absurd comments I have ever read. HFLM I like it, too. I mean, having my AF point stay on target for longer sounds ideal, right? And Tracking sensitivity adjustment is not only found on the 1DX and 5Dmk3.
I find that with the 1DX, I am unable to notice any slowdown in re-acquiring or acquiring initial AF, regardless of where I have Tracking sensitivity set. That said, I usually keep it at 0 for shorter focal lengths, and then between -1 and-2 with long lenses if necessary. Canon literature mentions that setting Tracking sensitivity to the Locked-On -1 or -2 settings, may result in the AF taking longer to re-acquire focus if focus is lost.
Canon also state that initial AF acquisition is not affected by setting Tracking sensitivity to -1 or This parameter affects how the AF deals with the movement of subjects, with the system either being prioritized for predictable, steady, constant speed or rapid, erratic movement in multiple directions.
With firmware V2. Most of the wildlife subjects that I photograph are unpredictable when it comes to speed and direction. It is also normal for them to change how fast they are moving. When evaluating the speed of your subject, it is important to take into account the direction of the subjects travel. If a subject is coming towards me, I have to be aware of the relative increase in speed that will occur as that subject gets closer to me and passes you by.
For me typical examples of such subjects would be fast-flying birds, like bee-eaters, or African wild dogs at play. The -1 and -2 settings are newly added with firmware V. As someone who prefers keeping my cameras in Ai Servo most of the time, selecting -1 or -2 means that I can optimize AF performance on occasions when I am photographing subjects that are not moving around too quickly. I might choose to do this when my subjects where not changing their location too much from frame to frame.
This parameter is perhaps less complex in its function than some of the others. Also, nothing has changed with it since the new firmware has been implemented. It is only relevant if you are shooting with one of the AF point groupings that utilize more than a single AF point. When you are shooting any one of those AF modes, there may be situations where the AF point that held initial focus is no longer on the subject, due to subject movement or camera movement.
In such instances the camera then hands focus over to the next AF point which detects the subject. On the 1DX I have not had need to move this setting beyond 0 which is the default setting. Here, I can choose whether my camera fires as quickly as possible between frames, or whether it allow more time for focus to take place.
Neither of these two AF parameters are linked to the AF Cases and these adjustments will not affect them nor be affected by them. With firmware V.
Ai Servo 1st Image Priority The first menu item here deals with Ai Servo shooting, and the very first image that you take in a burst, only. Pressing the Set button whilst Ai Servo 1st image priority is highlighted, will take you into the adjustment screen.
Nothing on this screen or slider are changed from the earlier firmware. The screen where adjustments are made to timing and focus for the 1st image in an Ai Servo burst on the EOS 1DX This parameter controls how much time is allowed for focus to take place before the shutter fires, but applies only to the first image in a burst.
The options on the slider go from Release on the left, to Focus on the right. The screen where adjustments are made to timing and focus for the 1st image in an Ai Servo burst on the EOS 1DX Moving the slider left, to the Release position, will limit how much time the camera will allow for focus to take place before the image is taken.
The amount of time allowed will only be that which is needed for the camera to fire at its selected frame rate, which may be anything up to 12 frames per second. With the slider in the Release position, focus tracking will take place there seems to be some confusion amongst some users whether focus takes place, which it always does , but, once the allocated time is up, the camera will fire the shutter regardless of whether focus was confirmed or not.
The screen where adjustments are made to timing and focus for the 1st image in an Ai Servo burst on the EOS 1DX Moving the slider all the way to the right, to the Focus position, will mean that in Ai Servo, the camera will allow as much time as needed for focus tracking to confirm BEFORE it allows the shutter to fire.
In reality, what this can mean is that in difficult focus conditions, such as subjects and backgrounds that are similar, or very high speed movement, or very low light, the frame rate of the camera may slow down to allow the extra focusing time. Simply stated, focus tracking takes place for both the Release option or the Focus option, but with Focus, more time is allowed when needed. Again, it should be remembered that the setting you choose on this screen applies to the first image in a burst only.
Your own preferences may differ according to your choice of subject matter and your own shooting style, but for me, I choose Release as my first image option.
I know with Release enabled, that I am able to get off my first shot quickly, and with little hesitation. Whilst setting the option to Focus priority is likely to increase the percentage of in-focus first images, it can also increase the amount of time that it takes to get the first shot off. Canon recommend the use of the Focus priority setting in very low light situations. Cheetah cub, Kenya.
Ai Servo and very low ambient light for action photography. Click for larger view The middle option on this screen is a balance between the two extremes. AF 2 Screen where adjustments are made to 1st and 2nd image Release or Focus priority Ai Servo 2nd Image Priority The second menu item on this AF 2 tab deals with Ai Servo shooting, and the timing versus focus priority for the second image and every subsequent one in a burst.
Once you lift your finger up off the shutter button, it signals the end of that burst, and 2nd Image setting , and the next image taken will then be the first image in what the camera sees as a new burst.
With two separate sets of controlling sliders, Canon make it possible for you to configure your camera AF timing exactly to your own liking, and to tailor it to different AF shooting situations.
With this slider, you are again choosing how much time is allowed for focus to take place between each frame in a burst, after the first image the timing of which is controlled by Ai Servo 1st Image Priority setting. The screen where adjustments are made to timing and focus for the 2nd and all following images in an Ai Servo burst on the EOS 1DX Moving the slider to the left, to the Release position, limits how much time the camera allows for focus to occur before the image is taken.
The time allowed being only what is needed for the camera to fire at its selected frame rate which may be anything up to 12 frames per second. In the Release position, focus tracking will still take place, as it always does. The difference is that one the allocated time is up, the camera will fire the shutter regardless of whether focus is confirmed or not.
The camera will delay firing until it confirms focus, or as close to it as it can come. This should result in more in-focus shots in a burst. This may happen in response to difficult conditions where it is difficult for Ai Servo AF to confirm focus and is perfectly normal. If you are not accustomed to it, it may feel as if the camera is lagging behind the shutter release. The male lion image below this text serves as a good example of the low light prowess of the 1DX. Even though the pre-dawn light was almost non-existent, it locked onto the lions eye using a single AF point instantly.
Male lion, Kenya. Very low ambient light levels, shot with Ai Servo. Choosing ON will mean that the AF system will attempt face detection as well as make use of colour information from the meter to aid AF tracking. I choose to set that to ON. What this setting does is keep the AF drive going even when the lens has become so deeply out of focus, that the subject may be difficult to see, for the AF and through the viewfinder.
This is something that tends to be more relevant for very long focal length lenses, like mm and over. Switching it to OFF may result in the lens drive stopping if it becomes deeply defocused, with the idea that it is better to have it stop instead of hunting back and forth. I find that a bit unsettling, and prefer to keep the lens drive active, and do my part to keep the lens focused on something big and with lots of contrast that may be close to the subject, even if I cannot locate the subject itself immediately.
