    I can't help but wonder if you are the one who can't read.
    A D60 can't take video footage and a "shot" is hardly footage, is it?

  2. Yes, it was. There was this one week a few months ago where 21.6% of
    the posts were not drivel, so that must have influenced my estimate, now
    revised to 8.44%.

    I'll say one thing for dpreview ....lots of people read it.
    I posted my first 5D2 pic and announced it there. I got over 5000
    hits the first day.

    No, but many shots edited together can become video footage. I just
    posted a little infrared movie I made with the D60 on Vimeo.

    No, I am not. I repeat:
    "In it, in very basic English, he says he did NOT
    take that video: it's from someone else."
    Who cares? The comment I made, related to his
    claims about video. What the heck has that got
    to do with his "shots"?

    What, you meant the shot of the dog with the eye in focus and
    the eyebrow totally out of focus? What can you possibly
    see in that for anyone to appreciate? What exactly did that
    shot prove? That the 5D2 has shitty DOF?

    It proves the 5D2 has excellent AF.

    BTW, DOF is a function of the lens more than the camera.

    I just love the clouds moving. Did you use an automatic shutter release
    timer or just stood there pressing the shutter every few seconds?

    It was software controlled via a laptop. I think I told it to snap
    every 4 seconds.
    I don't have the patience to make a longer movie that way. That vid
    was about 150 shots over about 10 minutes.

    A guy could burn his shutter out in fairly short order doing that...

    But, it's cool....

    Take Care,

    Why? Because it can back-focus?
    Exactly. But according to your claims, it isn't.

    No, because it focuses exactly where it is supposed to.

    Really? What claims have I made concerning the 5D2's DOF?

    What does viewing distance have to do with the amount of Depth of
    Field in a photograph?

    and that is where, in your example?


    That is focuses where "it is supposed to",
    without once saying where that is.
    It is of course the lens that focuses, the
    camera just confirms or not a given point of
    focus.

    I think Alan is getting confused.

    DOF is related to what the eye can accept as in focus and what becomes
    OOF for us.

    The viewing distance sometimes relates to how far back you must be for a
    picture to look focused when it may not be.

    You can't really swap the terms around because while they both refer to
    human perception of sharp focus, they are used differently.

    Like Alan, I thought it was part of the deal: Bret gets a new 5D2, and you,
    who we were told gave him the 40D in the first place, get it back.

    : I'm very content with the cameras I have.

    Out of curiosity, what would those be?

    Helen has my old 20D. If she wants the 40D she can have it.
    Not that that's any of your concern.

    The 40D was a gift to Bret for personal reasons that is nobody's
    business but ours. Why would I ask for it back? To be quite honest
    it would hurt my feelings if I were given it back. The 40D will come
    in handy as a backup camera for him.
    I have a number of film cameras and 2 DSLRs both of which are Canon.
    Bret offered me a choice of any camera and I choose the 20D. He has a
    big heart.

    Bull. You should have the 40D, and the 20D should be his backup camera.

    Let him show it by buying you a 50D for Christmas. (And make sure he gives you
    the 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens that comes with it.) ;^)

    What a killjoy! I know it's summer in OZ, but can't you work up at least a
    germ of the Christmas spirit for this festive season? ;^)
