How do I dump my blurry Canon 10D?

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by George Preddy, Mar 5, 2004.

  1. This guy has posted some good advice about how he dumped his blurry
    Canon DLSRs and migrated to sharp, extreme high resolution, truly
    professional digital photographic equipment...

    Let me know when he wants to 'dump' his 1D MK II. I will gladly take it
    off his hands. (Already have a 10D and love it)

    C'mon George! - the gallery picture of Chichester Cathedral looks as though
    those unnaturally blue skies are parting for the Last Judgement.

    I don't think that anyone has 'ever' seen skies like that in real life - not
    even when they've been doing Acid!

    Oh god, and here was I thinking the Preddy subhuman had died or emigrated or
    something.

  6. Just get back from the latest Sigma indoctrination camp?

  7. It is amazing how many people are waking up to the Canon/Nikon/Fuji
    DSLR rip off. People are figuring out that the digital camera review
    sites are all about hard-selling and big time sponsorship financial
    kickbacks inexchange for favorable reviews.

    George, you jerk---I thought you were gone. Or perhaps morphed into
    Charles Douglas Wehner....

    (I'm not sure who I just insulted)

    Reviewers are very charitable to the Sigma SD cameras.

  11. Considering that George is "deaf and dumb in both eyes," I doubt there's
    another one like him. Although, where there's 1 shill, there's likely
    to be another.

    That's a tad harsh, Fred.

    It's refreshing to see George back, especially after the barrage of filth
    and childish obscenities that the group has recently been subjected to! (is
    that still occurring BTW? - I've got it filtered)

    Gentleman George is never offensive - and can sometimes be surprisingly on
    the button with his comments. I happen to agree that many of the
    'reviewers' are self serving charlatans.

    It must be their own version of Pro Bono work - a little bit of good amidst
    a heaving sea of kickbacks and gratuities....

    Hello

    In Britain you get a amazing variety of skies and clouds, as you would
    get anyhere in the world. I could post a similar one taken on my Olympus
    film camera.

    That guy's pictures are very good, which anyone who has any sense of
    fairness would admit. It is also a very well put together site.
    He should have poated some of his now rejected Canon images.

    Indeed, that could have helped.
    Now we can only speculate on what it actually was he didn't like (and if he
    really did try a different brand).

    Hello

    If he says he had a Canon and did not like it, there is no reason not to
    believe him.
    He looks like a person who spends a lot on his photography and knows a
    great deal about the subject.

    In all the images he has shown, there is not hint of the normal
    objections that people have for Sigma images. I could not see any of the
    fringing that one can often see in images that have the type of lighting
    that predominates in the images. That is side or top lighting.
    There is no hint of oversharpening either and some of the images have a
    real sense of wanting to reach out and touch. That is certainly the case
    with the final image.
    I cannot quite see whay he objected to the 10D, as in my opinion it is
    really the best of the Bayer type cameras, but still suffering from a
    fatal sense of image softness.

    ======

    The Colliery winding wheel? - surely those reds are greatly over saturated?

    BTW, I had another look at the Chichester cathedral pic - and, despite other
    comments, the skies still look wildly 'out' to me.

    Maybe it's my monitor (TFT) but the colours in many of the images look very
    unnatural.

    I would imagine that they are often applauding the concept of full RGB
    at each pixel, more than the actual results. Many are tricked, too, by
    the false sharpness of the images, and "credit" that to the full-RGB
    sensels, but anyone with a discerning eye can see that textures are
    artificial, and turn to mud when downsampled (unless you use Nearest
    Neighbor to maintain the aliasing effect), or turn into mini-mosaics
    when viewed at large sizes.

    "George" (Steve in real life) is very insulting; he just doesn't use
    typically insulting keywords. He implies that most of the digital photo
    world is "fooled" by Bayer technology.
