AUDIOLOGIST DRs. LOVE THE 40D!

Discussion in '35mm Cameras' started by AnnikaFolliesII, Oct 16, 2007.

  1. HOLY SHIT!

    Check out this sound sample of a Canon EOS 40D! Recorded with the same setup and
    recording levels as the above camera samples.

    http://a.img-dpreview.com/previews/CanonEOS40D/Samples/Audio/30sec.mp3

    And I thought the 30D was bad? Damn! They shouldn't just provide earplugs with
    this one, they need to sell hearing-aid insurance policies with them -- FOR THE
    NEIGHBORS! It even pins the audio recording levels! Check out the waveform in
    any audio editor, its amplitude is clipped! Moving the microphone into another
    building when firing off this piece of shit camera probably wouldn't have even
    helped.

    To top it off the burst rate slows down to the 2.3 fps speed of a $200 P&S
    camera after the internal buffer is full. Yeah, that's worth all that $1300 for
    JUST the camera body. LOL!!

    No wonder Annika doesn't understand anything that's ever told to him, his
    camera's have made him DEAF. Hey Annika? How often do the neighbors call up the
    county assessor's office to report you for construction violations without a
    permit every time you fire up that jackhammer?

    LOL!

    With that much noise and vibration how much do you want to bet that camera slaps
    itself to death before it reaches even15,000 shots. That would be an EASY bet.

    No wonder Annika loves the 40D so much, he doesn't have to get attention on-line
    anymore, the WHOLE NEIGHBORHOOD will know when he's around taking photos! The
    PERFECT camera for an attention whore like him! LOL

    Hey Annika? Get a Gatling gun next time for even more attention, it might even
    be louder than your piece of shit 40D -- MIGHT be louder.

    IT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA FOR EVERYONE TO TYPE IN ALL UPPER-CASE IN THE FUTURE
    WHEN REPLYING TO ANNIKA, IT MIGHT BE THE ONLY WAY HE CAN READ IT, IT'S SHOUTING
    LOUD ENOUGH VISUALLY FOR IT TO GET THROUGH THE DEAFNESS HIS CAMERA CAUSED.

    HEY ANNIKA, DID YOU GET ANY GOOD PICTURES LATELY? NO? STILL THE SAME OLD SHIT AS
    USUAL EH? EH?!?

    HEY! CAN'T YOU HEAR ANYTHING ANYMORE?

    AT LEAST ALL YOUR SUBJECT HEADERS IN YOUR POSTS FINALLY MAKE SENSE, ALL BEING
    TYPED IN UPPER-CASE AND ALL. WE CAN ALL UNDERSTAND WHY NOW. AND HERE WE THOUGHT
    IT WAS FROM LOUD ROCK CONCERTS.

    LOL!!

    You're pretty funny............ looking!

    FTR, the 40D is much quieter than the 20D.
    And you don't even want to hear the Fabulous EOS-1V gunning through a
    roll of film. Tiger Woods hates it, I can tell you that from personal
    experience.

  3. Bret there is no point in justifying the capabilities of the 40D to
    anyone. The experts have given it top reviews and we both know
    through experience how competent and amazing this baby is. It's very
    clear to see that all we are witnessing is sour grapes. It's a shame
    they have to begrudge and attack someone.

    A keen photographer took some photos of a recent hoilday to a dinner party
    and showed them around. His hostess said " Wow - those are absolutely
    brilliant pictures, you must have a fantastic camera".

    They sat down to dinner and when it was over the photograper said to the
    hostess "Wow - that was an absolutely brilliant dinner, you must have some
    fantastic pots and pans" ;-)

    The hostess or the photographer?

  7. Sour grapes? Is that how you justify your blatant stupidity? There's a reason
    that the majority of people buy P&S cameras so they can turn off all sounds, and
    choose P&S cameras with ultrasonic motors in them so even focusing and zooming
    are absolutely silent. Why do you think that utlrasonic motors were even
    designed for use in cameras? They were designed by EXPERTS that realize what is
    needed in a decent camera. Ask any demanding wildlife photographer about the
    necessity of that. But then you don't know much about the varied aspects of
    photography anyway. You probably only use your camera to photograph your 8 dozen
    cats. It's no wonder that you make your absurd comments so often.

    certainly a lot less noise from the 40d than the
    wind coming out of morons like you who
    blindly accept the "expert" opinions of
    crap shooters on the Canon payola....

    Attention seekers I.E. Those who mention the names of famous people in
    an attempt to elevate their status to others are seldom likely to find
    favour with those they seek attention from.

    Despite your violent outlook on all things to do with life... Cameras
    don"t "GUN" through anything. Canon cameras are noisy at the best of
    times. Absolutely way nosier than Olympus and Nikon. Take a reality
    check here.

    Your DSLR cameras have always been entry level but one from the
    manufacture with the world's worst quality control. And then you need
    to buy battered lenses off Ebay for it. What does that tell you about
    yourself?

    Hash slinging doesn't pay? You really ought to have tried Photography
    for a living... Oh that's right, you can't sell your pictures, can
    you? Maybe fast food or carrying some wannabe golfer's bag of tools
    around is all you're really up to?

    Certainly you have yet to display any photographic creativity - call
    that real ability. Taking "Wildlife" shots in a zoo is hardly likely
    to produce much in that regard either. Join an art class mate... But
    then you've never been much for following instructions have you? Your
    head would not be stuck up your anus if you did.

    it certainly makes a lot of noise. but nothing compare
    to the wind that coems from the morons like you
    who follow "experts" blindly...

    Actually noons, the 40D probably isn't such a bad camera... I hear the
    fishing tackle store at Tangalooma is about to start offering them as
    sinkers!

    Well, when I leaned on that shutter button and starting firing that
    Fabulous EOS-1V, it sure got Tiger's attention. Made him stop his
    swing halfway down.
    I used to have a pic of that posted somewhere .... perhaps you have
    it.
    I've never said or implied otherwise. If you could read you'd know
    that what I said was that the 40D is noticeably quieter than the 20D.
    Actually, the lens was in great shape when I bought it. It got
    battered slamming around in my trunk. I'm pretty hard on camera gear.
    Oops, I said "hard on." Betcha that brings back some distant memories
    for ya, huh gramps?
    I don't know where you got the fast food bit that you keep throwing.
    I have been a caddie before, however. No shame in that.

    P&S cameras can operate in environments DSLRs are banned from. My
    Panasonic P&S cameras are used inside churches, in hospital natal
    units where flash is forbidden and where house rules forbid noisy
    cameras. On a recent wedding assignment the camera operator dropped
    her only DSLR, a S5 Fuji and rendered it inoperable. She finished the
    wedding using her church camera for a backup. It's a Panasonic
    FZ50.You can see a preview of her results here:
    http://www.weddingsnportraits.com.au/previews/scott-katrina/

    I have since enlarged one of the Panasonic's pictures to a canvas
    portrait 36" (900mm) wide. No one who has seen it has asked what
    camera took it or made any adverse comments about it rich colours,
    sharply defined detail or the subtle hint of grain in the shadows...
    Certainly the client paying $600 for it is thrilled enough to have
    taken the time to write a glowing thank you letter.

    Panasonic FZ series cameras are certainly no match for a DSLR in the
    area of continuous shooting. They are however a highly capable camera
    with a good - verging on excellent, Leica lens. Recent attempts by
    Paul Furman to degrade some FZ images I posted by altering them with
    Photoshop only serve to demonstrate that sufficient is always enough.

    Once processed, a Panasonic image may well have yielded all it has to
    offer but when that is sufficient to yield a fantastic photograph,
    some wannabe expert applying further processing is only showing their
    own jealousy at being confronted with equal quality images to their
    many thousands of dollars worth of equipment from a $500 department
    store camera.

  16. You bet your sweet life there's no shame in that! Most people think
    of caddies as menial servants who carry golf bags and that's it. It
    takes experience and know-how. I'd give my eye teeth to know half of
    what you know about the game.

    Here Douglas, read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caddie

    And as for their financial situation, check this out Douglas:

    What is it Helen? I spent 1.2 million on my retirement home on a sub
    tropical island paradise and all of a sudden Bret starts his "mine is
    better than yours" shit. As if that's not enough, you chime in with
    even more bullshit trying to defend his jealousy. Facts needed here
    Helen... They seem to pretty scarce in your part of the world.

    I pay golf caddies to haul my clubs around a course and advise me on
    unknown courses. Most of the time they haven't a clue about anything
    except how to sell me their secondhand balls... Bret would know all
    about those, wouldn't he?

    My green fees exceed their miserable fees by a factor of 10. Pissed
    off by my insistence of walking around the whole 18 holes instead of
    using a cart one of the better ones adds 25% to his miserable fee and
    still doesn't get as much as it costs me to get to the course in the
    first place. Hardly a handsome income.

    For every wealthy golf caddie you can produce, I'll show you 5000
    wealthy golfers. In the words of the fool himself... "WHO RULES?"

  18. The funny (sad?) part is that Douglas didn't even notice what he just
    said...

    (Don't bother thinking about it, Doug - you won't *ever* get it.)

    REALITY CHECK:
    You live in a small cluttered apartment and don't even play golf.

    Next you'll claim that you can beat me in golf. I'd sure like to bet
    some cash on that!

    A few of the guys I caddied with are now making good money on Tour.
    Mitch "Fort" Knox, for example, caddied for David Duval during his
    heyday. Mitch said that he made so much money caddying one year (over
    a quarter million) that he didn't know how to spend it all. I gave
    him a few tips on that.
