Hi Gary

Congratulations with your 1DX, and the 'super' lens... what a great combination.  8)

I appreciate your sample photos, beautifully natural and lovely compositions of wildlife.  These are the sort of photos I like.  ;)

Gary, do you feel the AF is 'best you have ever used'?  How would you compare it to other Canon DSLRs you've used?  (I have a 7D and have managed to squeeze out lots of good photos, including bif).

I'm sure the 1DX is obviously superior to the 7D in every way.... but just good to hear your thoughts and see those sample photos.  :)

Neuro.... yes... keep repeating to yourself.. you must.. keep strong... for all of us...  ;D

Cheers!!

Paul

I've had great luck with the 1DX doing indoor and outdoor concert photography, bird photography, indoor very low light portraits, and have yet to really get a bad shot with high-speed continuous shooting. Here is one example of that taken just before sunset at 2000 ISO using Canon 70-200mm 2.8 at 200mm and 6.3 AV. (This is one in a 1 second sequence of 12 shots).

The heron and egret are two shots where the 7D would struggle. Hopefully my 5D MkIII will cope almost as well, although I think I need a longer lens and a gym membership, possibly not in that order :P.

Get 2 x 1 series and hang on with a 400 f/2.8 and the other with a 600 and you can save on the gym membership :D

Thanks for posting that - i compared to some ISO 10K shots on my MkIII, and i'm actually sort of underwhelmed.  The grain pattern isn't as fine as the 5D, but i condede that this shot might be noisier because of ALO or some other sort of in-camera processing.   Doesn't seem like there's much more dynamic range in the 1DX's files either.

The lens are an asset whereas the gym is an expenditure. So the asset can be sold anytime and the money recovered, whereas once used the gym money is lost. That is my pitch to the wife :D

Just got the 1DX yesterday.  Great thunderstorm tonight in Olympia, WA so I thought I would try to capture some bolts with the 50mm f/1.2.  I've never tried to shoot lightning before so forgive me if this isn't very professional.  Tips and tricks for shooting lightning from you seasoned vets would be much appreciated.

The first shot was fired off at f/16, 1/10sec.
Second and third shot were f/16, 1/50sec.
all three at 25600 ISO.

They cleaned up very nicely in LR4

Gary, when you shoot your BIF images, can you commonly capture 6-10 "keepers" without any that have missed focus?

When I've tried them with a 1Ds MkIII coupled with a 300 2.8, I can capture a series like this only about 5% of the time.

(http://i329.photobucket.com/albums/l383/chauncey43/all-ten-new.jpg)

Most of the time, one or two of the shots in the series will have missed focus as I follow them across the pond.

You got that right.  But none the less my little 6ft3 broths drives it 300 yards!  My shutter speed was not hi enought on that shot but i still like it.  I did a few more at 1/2500 where it freeze the club while moving.

As for a whole in one, i never had one myself.  Too bad yours did not go in.  Amazing how much a inch makes the different in golf  ;)

Thank you.  Diffraction was a concern, but I had to snap off the shot quickly and I was hand-holding, so I just narrowed until it was about -2/3 expsoure.  I'd love to get that situation again and do it with a tripod.

And the 1d X keeps deliever these moments no camera have been able to respond to before.

I live 6 minutes from the biggest zoo here, so I can pop by a few times. These were all from today.

I used Case 6 and pulled down tracking sensitivty to -1, and 8 pt surrounding. Where all my other cameras gave up when something snappy happened, the 1d X tracks like a hooked fish.

On July 13, our son, Alex, and I shot photos using 2 separate cameras at a play where two of our grandchildren were part of the cast.
 
Alex used  my 1D Mark IV, and I used the 1DX body that arrived earlier that day. This shoot was exactly what I wanted to compare lens and bodies. I am ready for all kinds of night events with the new beauty.  Alex used the 70-200 mm f/2.8 Mark II lens and because the 1DX is full-frame, I used the 100-400 mm lens.

This Friday, I am shooting the first high school football game for this season using the 1DX and 100-400mm combination.  I will report back on results.

The wildlife photos earlier in this thread are unbelievable.  Nothing stops a Trane  ---- I mean a 1DX.

crapking...i also enjoy playing and shooting golf.  I like both your shots, especially the first one.   Do you think the second one would be better if you shot it with a smaller aperture so we could see the ball and the hole the golfer is playing.  just my IMO.

I did stop down to 1.6 trying to strike a background blur and depth of field balance, but not quite enough obviously.  Was a playing partner that day, and not shooting the event commercially  (plus it was a busy day on the course), so did not really have the time to experiment as much as I'd like. I do have an opportunity the first week of Oct to shoot a charity/celebrity outing so will be able to perfect the photographic shot then - still trying to perfect the GOLF shot after 30+ yrs w/o luck ;)

I went back and found another shot, this time at f4 with the 70-200 2.8 II.
Is this more pleasing?  I originally thought this looked a little "busy", whereas at f 1.6, I thought it was more "dreamy".
At my event in Oct, I will be able to sell my images (donating the proceeds back to the charity though), so which "LOOK" do you think would generate more interest?? I will only get each foursome (player) hitting off of one tee so I need to get it right the first and only time.  Which is preferable ??

i think you're on the right track now...slightly smaller aperture, maybe f4 like you said so you get some bokeh and some feel for the hole the golfer is playing.   maybe a little better composition and you have it.

here's a couple i recently took at a tournament.

in the first, i could've shot at a wider aperture to get better bokeh...this is a good situation for that dreamy look..I like this angle because you get to see the golfer's face better.

in the second - this is what i was originally referencing.  you can see the golfer, the ball, and the layout of the hole/challenge that the golfer is facing on the shot.

also...i'd like to see some of those shots from your Oct event...please consider posting a couple here when you're done.

edit...i just realized i posted some 5d3 shots in a 1dx post...sorry.

Silhouettes are often overlooked in wildlife photography, but it is where the environment is really important, so long lenses aren't necessarily as vital. It might be worth playing around with crops to see if there is a composition that works better i.e. to take the bird off centre, even if only slightly.

Gary,

Thanks for starting this thread, it is my favorite of the year !!!!

Group in general,

I find that these photos have an amazing realism to them, more so than almost all other images I have viewed on the internet.  The subjects look 'alive' and in 3 dimensions, much more than just photographs.

The examples here are from several different photographers, different lighting, different kinds of subjects, etc.  but almost all of them have this 'alive' quality that I don't see very often.  Can one conclude that the camera used has more 'magic'?  Is there some common thread in the post processing?  Does this Canon Rumors forum site present photographs with a different level of quality than other sites?  Something else?

I am anxious to hear your views, as I have only been dipping my toe in the DSLR waters for the past 2 years, (when the work schedule allows).  I have not seen anything from my EOS 7D that approaches the photographs here.  Needless to say, they intrigue me.

Thanks,

Mark

It's combination of a camera, lens and photographer. If you give the camera to a newbie, you won't be able to achieve much difference. Though, there is something in the color rendition that the camera is abe to do, feeling the lighting conditions and getting the right moment from the best perspective is more important.

This has been a most enjoyable thread. I love seeing the diversity of the images people are creating with this wonderful camera.

For me, there was a bit of a learning curve with the 1DX, specifically with the exposure, but after a little time, I can say it's truly the most wonderful DSLR I've ever worked with. 

Here's a couple of shots from the recent superfrog ironman event in San Diego. 

Both images are shot on a 1DX with a 135mm f/2.0L at 1/8000sec and iso 200

You are correct that there are many photogs who have also shown amazing examples of their work. To me, photographs are an art form. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...and to each their own. Some people like Picasso or Monet or Gauguin or Chagall or van Gogh and others dislike these same artists' works. But I wouldn't go to an art museum and proclaim that Picasso was a terrible artist because his paintings didn't look sharp. I enjoy Gary's photos for their artistic impact through my eyes. Since I am an amateur, I couldn't really comment on the technical aspects.

There are many aspects to producing an image, from capture to final product. Some of what you describe is down to subject separation and distance to the background. If the animal is in a gulley, then even an f/2 lens with perfect bokeh characteristics (whatever that may be - it will be different for everyone) is going to struggle to get a smooth background. Once you've captured the image, then you have to make processing choices and each person will make slightly different choices. Gary's choices are different to mine, so while I can applaud the capture, they don't grab my attention quite as much as if processed differently. That said, I tend to process an image so that it is the same as what I remember (bearing in mind that memory can sometimes be flawed) and only Gary knows how the image should look. The expertise when it comes to wildlife is more in the ability to capture an image, as you can adjust an image accordingly in post processing to any taste you like (within reason of course). That ability mostly is down to the photographer and not the camera/lens combination, at least within the limitations of the combination. I would rather applaud the capture than the choices made in processing.

I really have a lot more to learn with my new Canon equipment, but so far it was a "light jump" compared to my previous camera Sony R1 (it's not comparable, I know), but imagine all the freedom with this piece of machinery!  On my previous camera I used only ISO 400, and even with that low ISO my pictures was filled with noise... and now... oh my God  :o

I couldn't agree more w/ Narco.  This is an online community of photographers and we should support each other as a general rule of thumb.  Life can be hard enough without someone on a forum bashing you. Especially if it's so clearly off base.  If you disagree with something you should politely, respectfully, and professionally state your contrary/different opinion or point of view.

Compared to other shots posted here, these look more like rebel than 1dx. No offense, but I really want to know what's wrong cause that is not what you await from a $13000 setup (1dx+200mm 2.0)

As said, photography is subjective.  What might look bad for you look good for others (and I like Gary's samples).  Saying that, please don't look down on rebels.  They maybe a lot "cheaper" than 1DX but they're not horrible as what you seem to describe them.

Here's someone shooting mainly with an 1100D and 18-55mm III lens.  I don't think his shots are crappy.

You can also take a look at my own photos.  Rebels might have more limitations and shortcomings compared to a 1DX but you can also take good pictures with it if you know how.  Yup, I would take 1DX in a heartbeat but I won't mind shooting with a rebel camera if that's all I can afford.

I did a cross country meet today, and even downsized big time, the 1DX/300 f/2.8L I IS combo works pretty well.  This shot was at f/4, 1/1000s, ISO 640 not cropped too much:

I live in Nevada, just south of Carson City.

Those particular horses are "just down the road" to the east of me in the Pine Nut Mountains, about 10 minutes from my house. The shot of the colt nursing is looking west and the mountains in the background are the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

The bear cub is from Lake Tahoe on the California side which is about 40 minutes away.

To all,

Testing my new 600mm f/4L EF IS II USM in the community park.  I haven't had time to micro-adjust it to the 1Dx yet.  While looking around for things to photography, I discovered this squirrel in a maple tree.  The fall colors are peaking now so it made a good backdrop.  These were all hand-held.

Earlier on when I got my 5D3 first, may shots were not sharp. Some were due to not doing the AFMA and others were due to camera shake. I have doubled the shutter speed since and that helps. Also body sway while shooting wide open can mess things up so I shoot AI Servo many times.

That's actually important.  I even noticed a difference from 1/1600s to 1/5000s during football games using a 400 f/2.8 lens with IS OFF.  I was surprised there was a difference when shooting that fast anyways, but there is.

Yes, and even for non sports shooting the 1/focal length formula seems to be grossly inadequate. I use 1/2*focal distance... And this is with IS on!

Several friends and I have been following them since the end of September. And yes, you still have to be aware of where mom is.

And, sometimes if you are lucky you run into one of theses: This was a total grab shot. The camera was set at ISO 3200 expecting to find the bear cubs back in the shadows. We came around corner and found this big male Coyote. I barley had time to set the tripod legs and got off a few frames. 1D X, 500mm L II, ISO 3200, f6.3 @ 1/2500 sec.

Another reason I posted the shot I did, is that with the face-recognition feature activated with the AF system, you get a perfectly focused face shot, even at 1/500s at f/2.8, from a distance.  It's actually a much more powerful tool than I first realized.  You will absolutely love it.

bornshooter,

Here's what I do.  Runners and players?  Select the AF point one or preferrably two spots above the center.  This way the face is at focal point and the feet are still in the frame.  Active face recognition and fire away.  Don't worry about going out of focus, the camera will pick it up.  I'd say practice.

Some other shooters I know select multiple AF points and like you say, yes you can pick the starting AF point and let it skip around as it picks up faces.  The only reason I do what I mentioned is to use the dual-cross type AF sensors and usually in the sports I shoot, only one player at a time is sufficient. 

Good luck and have fun practicing!  Read the manual with camera in hand and try different things.

When I first read about that feature - I thought it would be a "must have" for wedding photogs! Just lock the bride's face in on the processional, recessional, or dance floor and let the camera track while you wait for those perfect shutter moments... What a tool!

bornshooter,

Here's what I do.  Runners and players?  Select the AF point one or preferrably two spots above the center.  This way the face is at focal point and the feet are still in the frame.  Active face recognition and fire away.  Don't worry about going out of focus, the camera will pick it up.  I'd say practice.

Some other shooters I know select multiple AF points and like you say, yes you can pick the starting AF point and let it skip around as it picks up faces.  The only reason I do what I mentioned is to use the dual-cross type AF sensors and usually in the sports I shoot, only one player at a time is sufficient. 

Good luck and have fun practicing!  Read the manual with camera in hand and try different things.
thanks for the tips :-)  i had a read at the manual so it recognises colour and faces it will be interesting to see how it will cope with all those santas lol i will have fun anyway no pressure not a paid shoot so i will see how it goes :-)


bdunbar  - what AF case # are you using for basketball?

Northstar,

Case #2 seems to work best, not because it is the best tracking case, but simply for basketball players often times run in front and out of the frame of the player I am tracking, and this case seems to ignore the other player pretty well.  However, in low light, I've had it not work sometimes.  Low light is very frustrating, but if you can shoot at 1/500, f/2.8, ISO 4000, you're doing pretty well and the AF usually has no problem.

Awesome indoor sports combo :), although this lens consistently has an issue with yellow casting under flourescent lights.  To solve, I've found that after my routine LR post-processing, I find I can remove the cast/return the skin tones by also editing in PS with the Cooling filter (LBB) layer at 15%. I've tried shooting in L JPG mode with various custom white balances, but always need to apply this filter to achieve acceptable skin tones. 
Any other tricks ??

I shoot basketball (gosh these no pun intendids are classic) with the 70-200 f/2.8L II IS, the 24-70L II, and the 135L.  In sufficient light situations, the 70-200 is the clear winner with flexibility and AF speed and accuracy.  The 135L AF's on the 1DX just as quickly, however, it's less flexible.  In low light however, I always go with the 135L.  Last week I had a game where the light was so bad I was at 1/500s, f/2, ISO 5000.  It would have been really bad had I only been shooting at f/2.8.  I think as far as AF speed and accuracy, the 70-200 is slightly better, but if you plan ahead, you can nail a lot of shots with the 135L.

A question: What PP did you do in LR?

I shoot RAW, sRGB, 'neutral' with NR/highlight tone off, and custom WB (K) specific to each gym (usually ~3200), and then import with "MY" basic LR RAW conversion settings...
Contrast +5
Clarity +15
Vibrance +35
Saturation +5
Sharpening +75, radius 1, detail 25
NR 25
with the Lens specific profile and the camera profile  set to "neutral"

Then, based on ISO / histogram / DR of shot, I tweek and adjust WB, exposure / highlights / shadows / NR as needed;

Finally, with this lens (for some reason),  I also have to further tweek the WB, but I must do this by editing in PS, using just the preset camera filter, {cooling (LBB)} with 15% opacity to offset a persistent yellow cast I usually encounter when shooting under these underlit gym fluorescent lighting. 
The only other lens that casts this similar yellow haze is my 85 1.2L.  And it happens on all my bodies 7d, 5d3, 1DIV and 1D-X.
My zooms, 70-200 2.8 II and 24-70 2.8 II, do not have this same issue >:(  on any of my bodies, so I really think it is unique to these lenses. 
Interestingly, the 85 has a slightly different hue so I'm convinced it is really these lenses (under these conditions).  I'll try to post a before / after LR screen shot to demonstrate what i mean when I get back home tonite.

Thanks, a before and after would help. I don't use sharpening. That is set at the default value. I use more clarity. Typically the value is 50. Gotta run to work soon. I will post more details in the evening when I get back.

Here is the Before (bottom) and After (top) SCREENSHOT demonstrating the 'Yellow" cast from the 135L using the 1D-X, though as noted, this occurs on every body under indoor gym fluorescent lights -probably reflecting off the wooden varnished floors.  The Before does have my basic Raw adjustments, as those are applied during import, but I've only found the 1 workaround to remove this (PS camera cooling filter), but if others have ideas - please share. 
I'll have to go back and find the OOC backup to be sure this is not a LR specific raw conversion phenomenon. I apologize the resolution is suboptimal for pixel-peeping but hope you see what I see.....

The yellow cast is also demonstrated with my 70-200 f/2.8L II IS.  Unfortunately, due to my quick turnaround times demanded, I cannot go into photoshop and apply the filter.  The best I can do is lower the color temp quickly and do my best.  This is why I dislike badly lit gyms, such as division 2 college and high school :).

Hey guys.  This isn't meant to be "one of my best" but I wanted to share a nasty situation with you guys.  I had to finally shoot at ISO 12,800 in a dimly lit fluorescent gym, finally one of the worst situations I could think of.  I'll post the photo here.  My analysis is that the faces blur faster away from the focus point and the colors vary much more throughout the different faces in the crowd, and seems "warmer" despite lowering color temp drastically in post to around 3100.  Overall though, I think the 1DX did an okay job.  Specs are 1/500, f/2.8, ISO 12,800 at around 130mm with a 70-200 f/2.8L II IS lens.

nice image going by your shutter speed you could have reduced that iso though
Title: Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx
Post by: bdunbar79 on December 31, 2012, 02:14:18 PM
I should have reduced the shutter, but I only had two quarters of the game to shoot before I had to hurry home and send my photos to the News Journal.  So this shot was in the heat of the game, and with CWA ISO 12,800 showed an even (0 EV) exposure. 

Now, what I would have done, is lower that shutter in half or even to 1/100s and the ISO would have been way lower.  This is why I have since changed my shooting mode to "faux M" so that I can do this more easily and more quckly.  Hey, you learn right? :).

With same situation in a different game, I changed lenses, opened up a bit more, shot at ISO 4000 instead, when CWA gave 10,000 at f/2.8.  Still a bit "dark" for my tastes, but what can one do when noise will begin dominating?  1/500, f/2.2, ISO 4000.

Post by: bdunbar79 on January 01, 2013, 01:21:51 AM
Much easier than it seemed.  She was pretty much on a fast break and I had time to lock focus on her face and then spray about 5 frames :).  That's one nice thing about the 1DX, once it locks, you can spray and it'll stay locked on.  Oh I love the camera so much.

Thanks a lot guys.  I still have a ton to learn, and hope to expand my photography beyond sports this spring.  It's such a fun subject matter.  Please keep sharing your photos.

Nortstar has it, Place called Jigokudani about 5 hours drive North of Tokyo, hike around 3 Klms into the Mountains to a Hot Springs that the local Macaques have learnt to use to keep warm in the Winters of Northern Japan, the day we visited it was snowing & - 10F, although caretakers throw Grain out in the surrounding area so the Monkeys are able to forage, there is no other attempt to domesticate, these are wild Monkeys. Having said that you can get amazingly close to them, they pretty well ignore us Humans as long as you don't touch them or maintain direct eye contact, worth a visit if your ever in Japan, especially in the winter.

My first time playing around with my new 300 2.8 IS mark i.  Shot at 2.8 and 1/1600 iso 100.  hand held - af servo

I love the IQ and blow out bokeh, but I will admit that my first time with a 300 2.8 left me thinking I need to work on my skills.  I was shooting my dog playing and running with other dogs in an off-leash park, so it was "action" photography.  I was disappointed in my "keeper" rate of roughly 60-70%. (1/3rd were oof shots) I'm assuming it's just the narrow depth of field at 2.8 and 300mm. 

For those with experience shooting this lens, is it normal to lose 30% of your shots to OOF in the situation I've described above....action, 2.8, 300mm, hand held, and experienced in general- but never with a 300mm prime.   I'm assuming it's just the depth of field at 2.8 and 300 with quickly moving subjects combined with no 300mm experience, right?

Part of the reason for my question is that my 70-200 2.8ii has so good to me, even at 2.8 and 200.  Maybe it's the newer AF technology?  In other words, I think if I had my 70-200 at the dog park today and shot with the same settings at 200mm, my keeper rate would've been closer to 80-90%. 

Thoughts from you more experience guys would be appreciated.  I'm still in the "testing/return" window with this lens.

Here's one that I like.

Yes, handheld, and shooting at a distance, you must be careful.  I got the hang of it this fall with football and soccer, but I was using a monopod.  It's a great lens, and focuses faster than the 400 f/2.8 IMO.  I'd use a monopod at all times with this lens.

Post by: eml58 on January 03, 2013, 08:29:39 PM
I would agree with bdunbar79 on this lens, it's a great Lens but shooting at distance you need all the help you can get, I use a RRS Monopod and RRS Monopod head, this allows me to markedly increase my keeper rate. As soon as the 300 f/2.8 L II was released I upgraded & with the almost 30% reduced weight, faster focus I still use the Monopod but a lot less, keeper rate has improved over the Mark 1 Lens, I've found this to be the case also with the Version II 400 & 600 as well. I wouldn't say any of the Version II lenses are a huge improvement on IQ over the Version I Lenses, but the improved reduction in weight & faster auto focus has impacted hugely on reducing the OOF shots, I shoot mostly wildlife & would sleep with these Version II lenses if my wife would allow.

bdun....as I study the shots, i see that some are simply focused on something a few inches in front or back of the subject and that makes the face..etc OOF.... but some of the others are focused spot on and still seem oof....maybe the AF just wasn't quick enough in this case?

I don't think it's the shutter speed.  I think your tiny movements are magnfiying across the field, and confusing and slowing the AF.  You do not need to buy version II lens, but I would click on IS and use a monopod, for a higher keeper rate.  If you cannot do that, then you will need to shoot more shots and really try to nail focus.  What is probably happening is that you nailed focus, then moved slightly and now focal plane has moved.

As soon as the 300 f/2.8 L II was released I upgraded & with the almost 30% reduced weight, faster focus I still use the Monopod but a lot less, keeper rate has improved over the Mark 1 Lens, I've found this to be the case also with the Version II 400 & 600 as well. I wouldn't say any of the Version II lenses are a huge improvement on IQ over the Version I Lenses, but the improved reduction in weight & faster auto focus has impacted hugely on reducing the OOF shots, I shoot mostly wildlife & would sleep with these Version II lenses if my wife would allow.

Yeah I am thinking of purchasing version 2 of 300 f/2.8L IS.  I could probably sell version 1 of both 300 and 400 f/2.8 because I can get so close on sidelines now that I rarely would require the 400 f/2.8.  I'm not sure though, I like having it and shooting from off the sidelines slightly.

OK...now a question for both of you....at 1/1600, do I really need a monopod.  even at 1/600 or above do I need a monopod

I don't think it's the shutter speed.  I think your tiny movements are magnfiying across the field, and confusing and slowing the AF.  You do not need to buy version II lens, but I would click on IS and use a monopod, for a higher keeper rate.  If you cannot do that, then you will need to shoot more shots and really try to nail focus.  What is probably happening is that you nailed focus, then moved slightly and now focal plane has moved.
I think alot of the time it's down to the weight. While it's handholdable, it isn't long before the weight makes it more difficult to keep the lens pointing exactly where you want it and as the others said, you don't need to be out by much to make a difference.

I agree.  I shoot with the 200 f/2 (not a light lens) handheld with my heavy 1DX using 1/200s shutter with no issues.  The key is to learn to support yourself properly and to use AI servo mode.  I only use a monopod when shooting for long periods of time like sports shooting. 

Oh, IS mode 1 when handheld and mode 2 when on the monopod.

The Long Lenses (300/400/600) all require firm control when shooting at distance, any movement is going to throw off the focus, an earlier mention of shooting in AI Servo is good advice that I have learnt through many OOF shots when shooting in Single Shot, an error I used to make (Compliments of the centre spot focus point on the 5DMK2), has been with the advent of the 5DMK3 & 1Dx, getting out of the habit of using the Centre Focus Point & recomposing (sure fire method for OOF shots), getting used to the diversity of 61 Focus Points after the single usable (IMO) focus point of the 5DMK2 has been a real learning curve, enjoyable though & productive. To answer an earlier question on using a Monopod when shooting at say 1/1600, perhaps not usually, but the weight in the 300 V1 is still a factor & I would suggest unless your Arnold, you may find a support system a real advantage. When shooting Wildlife on Safari I always use the RRS Safari Rig Monopod, swear by this system, these guys make absolutely the best gear available when it comes to Camera support.

Oh, IS mode 1 when handheld and mode 2 when on the monopod.
Where on earth did you get that appalling notion from? Mode 1 is to stop movement in two directions, left-right and up-down, unless you have hybrid IS and that does three directions with in-out aswell, but the point is, Mode 1 tries to steady the shot completely. Mode 2 is for panning in any direction, the lens will work out your direction of pan and NOT try to correct movement in that specific direction. Mode 3 is a hybrid that automatically works out if you are panning or not, it gives you the best of modes 1 & 2 without having to switch between them. Even if you are on a monopod there is no reason to change IS mode, you are either panning or you are not, if you are then you need to be in Mode 2, if not, Mode 1.

Most modern IS lenses also have auto tripod detect, you don't need to switch them off when tripod mounted, earlier IS systems needed you to turn IS off when the lens wasn't moving as it tended to make up movement to correct!

I don't understand your comments.  You repeated what I said.  I use mode 1 when handheld (correction in both directions) and mode 2 when on a monopod (panning).  The 200 f/2 I mentioned doesn't have mode 3.  After 25+ years of this, I think I know what I am doing and my images speak for themselves.  Geez.  ::)

My point was, IS selection doesn't matter if you are on a monopod or not, and being on a monopod does not mean everybody is panning. Why would you assume people knew that if you were using a monopod that you were panning?

With respect, your two images are not good examples of either IS mode use though, the shutter speeds are too high as shown by the water drops frozen sharply in midair for Mode 1, and the lack of background longitudinal blur in Mode 2. So here are three images that show, one, anybody can take a picture of a dog jumping into a pool  ;), but notice my water drops imply movement because they are more motion blurred, purely an aesthetic decision but relevant with regards IS use, if your water drops are sharp then you have a shutter speed that is fast enough to not need IS . Two, IS mode 1 use, handheld at 0.5 second, the statue is sharp. Three, IS mode 2, panning, note the longitudinal blur of the background.

Now I realise you might know all this, but many don't, and I originally posted to clear up any possible confusion regarding the wording of your use of IS and monopods. Not to try and teach you a lesson you don't need nor to come across as an a-hole, I really was just trying to help others.  :)

A quick look over your past 100+ posts has shown me that you are an argumentative chap who rarely shows your own work so I will prevent further involvement with such arguments with you.  Any further explanation as to my statements will simply result in more arguing by you.  Anyone else wanting to discuss this without rash, "appalling" comments feel free to continue on and I will join in.

crapking...Great shots!

Also, I see you shot these at 1/1250, but you mention you used IS mode 1.  Do you feel like you need IS on when shooting at 120mm and 1/1250th?  Or maybe a better question, is it better to turn it off when not needed? ...or, does it even matter?

I'm just curious to hear your opinion on the subject.  Anybody else have an opinion on IS on or off relative to shutter speed?

There are a million answers to the IS on or off for faster shutter speeds and even Canon has changed their recommendations over the years (and levels of IS now available).  I think that is a subject best made for a new thread or a private message as it could get out of hand fast in this 1DX thread.

Just my 2 cents.

Well said 8). Like you stated, it wasn't your reply's content that was wrong (even an amateur like me knew the difference between IS modes 1 and 2), but the way it was stated. I think the reason this forum is so good is that most of the photogs with experience and expertise share that knowledge and skill with what we call the "aloha" spirit in Hawaii. In other words, in a positive and constructive manner. I look forward to more of your posts in the future. :)

On vacation, for this shot, I was in a 12 man zodiac in a choppy bay so I left in on.  :)
Pretty much leave it on all the time, unless doing portraits on a tripod.  Most of my sports shooting is either handheld or on a monopod and I see no reason / advantage to turn it off.  sometimes I drop shutter speed to 1/80 for candids to lower ISO so rather than fumble with the switch, I leave it on.

I hadn't owned the V1, this is my first 600 Lens, I have owned the V1 of the 300 & 400 and now have the V2 of both Lenses, I've found the V2's better, not much better, but lighter, perhaps a little sharper, but Focus seems much quicker on the V2's compared to the V1's, interested in your views of the 600.

Oh, love your wildlife photography as well, especially the work done on the 600, sharp as tacks from what I can see.

I'm happy that at 4000 iso on a 200% crop I'm still able to get this kind of quality.

Speaking of high ISO and cropping, I shot this at 1/500s, f/2.8, ISO 5000 and still had to brighten in post to about +1.00 exposure.  There is some detail loss, but not bad at 40% NR.  This gym is just awful.  I have since changed to the 135L and now shoot at f/2.2 instead of 2.8 and it's helped with noise in post, but the keeper rate is slightly lower due to DOF and AF speed.

I've had great luck with the 1DX doing indoor and outdoor concert photography, bird photography, indoor very low light portraits, and have yet to really get a bad shot with high-speed continuous shooting. Here is one example of that taken just before sunset at 2000 ISO using Canon 70-200mm 2.8 at 200mm and 6.3 AV. (This is one in a 1 second sequence of 12 shots).
Beautiful shot!!! I want the 1 Dx, I want the 1 DX, and I want it right now!!!

That particular gym is so dim, I can't shoot in JPG, I have to shoot in RAW.  Even at 1/500, f/2.8, ISO 5000, I still had to raise exposure by +1.00 which ultimately led to the deterioting of the IQ, but since this only went in a newspaper, it doesn't matter.  I typically shoot in RAW if I have time to process, if not then JPEG has to do.

Just a quick photo here explaining.  This is the exact same gym some time later, and this is the exact end of the floor in the same very pitiful lighting situation.  However, instead of using the 70-200 f/2.8L II IS at f/2.8, 1/500, ISO 5000, I used the 135 f/2L, f/2.2, ISO 5000.  In post I still had to go +0.40 exposure, but much better.

bdun...have you given thought to the sigma 85 1.4?

Yes.  But only if it performs better than my 85 f/1.8 at f/2.2.  I don't shoot wider than f/2.2 in sports because of DOF, especially with a shorter lens with an 85mm vs. a 135mm.  With the 200 f/2L, I'll shoot at f/2, but only side shots where I can focus on the players' faces.  Do you know if it performs better?  Thanks.

at f2 to f2.8 this lens is stunning IMO <f2 the canon 85 is a tad sharper but at f2 to f2.8 the sigma is razor sharp
I felt noticably sharper than the 85L and at f2 the sigma is sharper than the 70-200 f2.8 is at f2.8

Gotta try my PS edit trick to get rid of that yellow haze - edit in PS, single adjustment layer - camera / cooling filter set at only 10-20% opacity - this will bring skin tones back to more natural.

Also, I use the 135 at f2 from the sidelines and don't have issues with DOF usually.  The extra stop helps keep ISO (noise) down.

I will try your filter.  However, I don't have time to do this for publication/gallery time.  I can do this for the university however, because I have time for RAW processing.  The other question I have, is that your photo looks a bit underexposed.  Is this intentional?  Thanks.

Ain't that the truth...  I won't say I intentionally underexposed that shot, but for the website site / small prints, I tolerate that degree of underexposure.
I saw one solution I won't try though - I was at a game last week, and I saw a 'pro' from the local newspaper setting up 4 flashes in each corner of the court and he was remote triggering them all with every shot!!  Very distracting for me, can't imagine how the players handled it. I wanted to have a seizure by halftime myself.  When I saw his shots (c/w mine) I realized it didn't help - but it didn't help he was shooting a Nikon either  ;)

Nortstar has it, Place called Jigokudani about 5 hours drive North of Tokyo, hike around 3 Klms into the Mountains to a Hot Springs that the local Macaques have learnt to use to keep warm in the Winters of Northern Japan, the day we visited it was snowing & - 10F, although caretakers throw Grain out in the surrounding area so the Monkeys are able to forage, there is no other attempt to domesticate, these are wild Monkeys. Having said that you can get amazingly close to them, they pretty well ignore us Humans as long as you don't touch them or maintain direct eye contact, worth a visit if your ever in Japan, especially in the winter.

Isn't that the place where sometimes a macaque will be kicked out and has to freeze? Seriously, that made me sad. I think I saw a doco on it. Great shot though.

I wouldn't be surprised if the guy doing the kicking ended up on his back after attempting that kick. Jumping with both feet is not the most stable of positions.

Incidentally, who won? My money is on the guy with his two feet planted firmly on the ground.  ;)

  • Look at the rock that the cat is standing on
  • Look at the cat
  • Look at the colors on the cat
  • Look at the colors on the rock
  • Look at the pattern of colors on the cat (pattern and banding are not bad words ;) sorry - could not help it...)
  • Look at the pattern of colors on the rock
  • Now that is camouflage!
  • That took several hundreds of thousands of years to refine
  • My ZERO c are "look at the real picture" DR vs survival, DR looses big time...


+100

I'd add 2 more...
1)Look at the great bokeh
2)Look at the cat's face...it's soooo cute and his smirk suggests he knows a secret we don't ;D

Believe it or not they called a charge. I shoot for the white team, (Lady Tigers) and was not too happy with the call.  :), but did like this shot  ;)

I agree with bdunbar...they haven't even made physical contact yet(as it looks to me)and the defensive player's body position indicates a bit of a "slide under"....BLOCK

Gary Samples and his wonderful photographs inspired me to join CanonRumors in order to post images.  Gary, I must say that your images are spectacular!  Thank you for sharing your images and inspiring the rest of us.

The 1DX is a fabulous camera that has opened up new image capture possibilities with its frame rate and high ISO capabilities.  Whereas I don't like to shoot the 1D Mk IV above ISO 800, I routinely shoot at ISO 5,000 with the 1DX.

Shot details, all taken from a boat.
3 Bald Eagles: 600 mm, F/5.6, 1/1250 sec, ISO 5000 (rain/snow mix) , no crop
Eagle take off in rain: 600 mm, f/5.6, 1/320, ISO 5000 (it was dark and very rainy), no crop
Eagle take off from river: 600 mm, F/5.6, 1/5000, ISO 640, no crop
Gadwall in flight: 300 f/2.8 + 1.4X, f/4.0, 1/4000, ISO 800, no crop

Mallard take off
300 mm f/2.8 + 1.4X, f/7.1, 1/2500, ISO 3200, no crop.  All seven photos in this sequence were sharp.  The 1DX captured focus quickly and stayed locked on even though the duck was close and moving quickly. It was difficult to keep the duck framed properly, especially being seated in a small boat.

Bufflehead in flight
300 f/2.8 + 1.4X, f/4.5, 1/2500, ISO 3200.  Buffleheads are really fast flyers, but the 1DX is able to focus quickly and stay locked on, as long as I keep the bird in the frame.

And I feel guilty picking just one out for praise but Gary, your pictures of eagles are stunning too. I especially like that last one (and thanks for posting the AF case you used).

This thread is definitely not good for my wallet as it definitely makes one yearn for some super teles! ;-)

I have a quick question for all you 1Dx users. I just got my CPS rental and fallen in love with it, after the two weeks I plan on buying one. Do you use L-plates with yours or not?

Yes, though not always. And the new modular style RRS L-Plate is, to me, well worth the money. It might cost a bit more but in the context of the camera is not that much, however I buy L-Plates and regular body plates for my most used bodies and the new design covers both so actually saves me money.

+1, love the RRS modular L-plate for the 1D X, especially since the Allen key stores in the plate.

I kid you not living in Utah you need all the glass you can get the 600mm is the best thing I have done but I had to get a big ass tripod & Wimberley II head but now that the pain is gone I smile every time I go shoot  ;D

Love your shots - are these OOC JPGs or can you share with us your workflow - I'm impressed with the dynamic range in these shots and curious how much and what type of postproduction you do on the RAW image.

Here is an example of a Galapagos Hawk, shot RAW with LR adjustments - I am pleased with the capture with but not really satisfied with my processing c/w yours. I'm always looking to make my photos more natural.

eagles love to fight & steal  there could be food all over the ground but they want to take it from someone. the one  fly's in to steal  and the one on the ground jumps up claws first to try to stick him   that is what you see  the eagle doing that I posted I just cropped that part out

my work flow is just by eye !! in  photoshop 6 in raw I push & pull the best I can. trying  to get as much  detail as I can with out washing it out to bad any thing with light's & dark's in the same shot makes hard to get right .
Cool! Thanks for the explanation. Now I totally get the pat-a-cake shot...

600mm f/7.1 1/5000 iso 400 case1
not sure if I have posted this before metering setting is 99.9% always on (partial) 
every body shots there own way  I shoot  on AV but I'm really watching the speed If it gets to slow I open up the Len or iso shooting things that fly. speed is Avery thing  I would like 7.1/ 10.0 but will take  f/4.0 3000 over f7.1 1 /800   if your to slow you come home with crap !! hope this helps
I learnt the hard way shooting the flamingos that 1/800 is not a fast enough speed in many cases. Gary, do you fix your ISO or do you set it to Auto? I had shot in Manual mode with auto ISO.

I agree....In some environments the auto iso makes sense, but when you take a great shot and the auto iso gives you some "crazy number" that ruins your exposure....well, you only have to have that happen a couple times before you stop using it.   Especially for wildlife or sports where that moment is lost.

it is important to learn to watch the dash board on the camera thats hard to do in combat shooting.

I have only had my 1D X a few days now but covered a major event just a few hours after getting it and was surprised by the movement of the auto ISO. I think I will definitely be setting it manually in future to see what happens. Amazing camera though, and your shots of those eagles are stunning, Gary.

Thanks,  To get this effect, my Wimberley head is mounted to a board that is fastened to the back seat of my row boat enabling the lens to be about a foot from the surface of the water.  A right angle finder is used so I'm looking down vertically.  I find rotating the boat with an oar an easier method of tracking motion compared to rotating the Wimberley head.   Raising the lens up by even a foot really alters the perspective in a negative way.

Northstar,

The cropped one of course.  I had two games to shoot, each with about 80 photos and had a deadline to hit for photo gallery.  I'd love to sit and go through some of my shots and do a lot of post-processing.  That photo is 72 ppi for the newspaper.  I would like to go back to the raw shot, and process at 240ppi and do some pp.  Thanks.

Did some testing of the 1DX in blowing and/or reflecting snow.  Even with the temperamental 85L, the 1DX focus was fast and spot on!  Some blue sky, white snow f/11 shots were easy as well with the 1DX.  Love this camera.  ;D

(Used 85L, 70-200 f/2.8 IS II & 200 f/2)

Nice shots!

I had done some similar shooting with my dog in the snow while it was snowing and I got a lot of shots where the AF picked up on the snowflakes that were in the air, rather than the dog, resulting in an oof shot.   Maybe because my dog has a dark coat as a backdrop to the white snowflakes?   Anyway, the situation tricked my 1dx af settings, did you have this happen to you at all while shooting your dog while it was snowing?

Northstar,

The cropped one of course.  I had two games to shoot, each with about 80 photos and had a deadline to hit for photo gallery.  I'd love to sit and go through some of my shots and do a lot of post-processing.  That photo is 72 ppi for the newspaper.  I would like to go back to the raw shot, and process at 240ppi and do some pp.  Thanks.

It's a great shot with the action, ball, and facial expressions, so when I saw it I wondered why you had left it "wide"...but I get it, those deadlines come fast after a game.

It did have a few OOF shots due to snow flakes, but only a couple out of hundreds.  I have the AF tweaked to ignore temporarily closer objects and I think I was running case 4 with single focus point and 4 point expansion.  Interestingly enough, the 70-200 f/2.8 IS II was the worse lens for popping OOF quickly and then back into focus quickly.  The 85L and the 200 f/2 tracked much better.  I think the 85L is slower and the 200 f/2 is smarter.  ;)

Togheter with two others just returned from a trip to Kamtsjatka, Russia. The Russian touroperator told us that is was the first time that people from Europe came to the place to photograph the Stellers Sea-Eagle. I now understand why, the place is very inaccessible because there are hardly any roads. The meter of snow and the weather determines whether one anyway eagles sees. One week of stay also yielded two earthquakes and two heavy snowstorms. But fortunatly the Ural truck did it's job, what a hell of a truck. Unstoppable.

My equipment had no problems at all. I've used a 1DX for most of the time and it worked flawlessly. I did not protect it although I brought a plastic cover with me to keep the direct wind of the camera. Also, when going outside we had no problems with the camera concerning cover. On the first day of the snowstorm the temperature was about minus 12 degrees Celsius en a windforce of 8 to 9 Beaufort. Visibility was sometimes not more dan 15 metres. The truck on the picture drove into a wall of 1.5 metres of snow because of that poor visibility. With some help it got loose and instead of choosing another route the driver just send the truck over de snow-wall. Only with a bit more care.
Altogheter, because of the circumstances I did not manage to get the Eagle shots I was hoping for ( low angle ). Photographing wildlife on the southern part of Kamtsjatka during winter demands to make it a longer project, but is a great adventure.  My other camera, a 1Dmark4 also worked well. Alle lenses used are L-lenses.

Hello,

The whole trip was only ten days of wich five days were spend traveling to Kamtsjatka or driving to the westcoast of the peninsula and back. If you want to travel to an arctic destination, it's quite easy to arrange it yourself or otherwise book a phototrip. There are plenty of these organised trips wich specializes on wildlife photography.
When you ae interested in going to a real remote destination, I have a contact in Russia ( touroperator ) wich ofers a trip to the Lena Delta. You will find there for example a Ross Gull colony. The accomodation that is available for us is very primitive and you spend a whole days sailing by boat to the iland. The whole comfort is very poor, but you stay in a remote place with a Ross Gull colony a 100 metres away.  The landscape is just flat, it's a delta. Renting a helicopter is very pricey nowaydays. A group of four is the maximum.

Indigo-banded Kingfisher (Alcedo cyanopectus) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/alabang/8588122425/#) by alabang (http://www.flickr.com/people/alabang/), on Flickr

The Indigo-banded Kingfisher (Alcedo cyanopectus) is a species of bird in the Alcedinidae family. It is endemic to the Philippines, where it is a generally uncommon but locally common resident of the northern and central islands. There are two subspecies, the nominate race, which occurs on Luzon, Polillo, Mindoro, Sibuyan and Ticao, and A. c. nigriostris, which is found in Panay, Negros and Cebu. It forms a superspecies with the Silvery Kingfisher of the southern Philippines.[1]

The Indigo-banded Kingfisher feeds on fish and aquatic insects. It perches on rocks and overhanging branches and foliage and dives steeply into the water to catch its prey. Once caught, it returns the prey to the perch where it is beaten and swallowed. Little is known about its breeding behaviour, although it is known to nest in tunnels dug into the banks of streams and rivers.[1]

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests and subtropical or tropical mangrove forests.

Lovely leopard shots! Could you describe how you took this one?

Spent 2 weeks in Northern South Africa at two Properties, Mala Mala & Londolozi, target of the 2 weeks was just Leopards. We were able toPhotograph 24 Different Leopards over the 2 weeks, in particular my plan was to Photograph Leopards at night with the 600EX RT. The Flash was used on a RRS Bracket, set to maul -2 & for 200mm using the 1Dx on the mentioned settings & the 300f/2.8. The trick here was to use only enough Flash to give some "fill" lighting, while utilising the Spotlight from another vehicle at night to throw just enough light on the Leopard to rim light the animal. Biggest issue was maintaining auto focus although the 1Dx was surprisingly good in this area, as long as Focus was on the area of the head that was lit from the spotlight, impossible to focus on the eye. Processed in LR4 for minor crop, Photoshop for some levels to ensure Blacks even, some sharpening in On One. Hope that helps.

That is very very good work and thinking. I call this a masterplan. You can plan something like this, but you get no quarantee. Two weeks with all togheter 24 leopard is also amazing. You' ve got some inside information I guess?

Mala Mala, Northern South Africa, March 2013
Lovely leopard shots! Could you describe how you took this one?

Spent 2 weeks in Northern South Africa at two Properties, Mala Mala & Londolozi, target of the 2 weeks was just Leopards. We were able toPhotograph 24 Different Leopards over the 2 weeks, in particular my plan was to Photograph Leopards at night with the 600EX RT. The Flash was used on a RRS Bracket, set to maul -2 & for 200mm using the 1Dx on the mentioned settings & the 300f/2.8. The trick here was to use only enough Flash to give some "fill" lighting, while utilising the Spotlight from another vehicle at night to throw just enough light on the Leopard to rim light the animal. Biggest issue was maintaining auto focus although the 1Dx was surprisingly good in this area, as long as Focus was on the area of the head that was lit from the spotlight, impossible to focus on the eye. Processed in LR4 for minor crop, Photoshop for some levels to ensure Blacks even, some sharpening in On One. Hope that helps.

That is very very good work and thinking. I call this a masterplan. You can plan something like this, but you get no quarantee. Two weeks with all togheter 24 leopard is also amazing. You' ve got some inside information I guess?

Appreciated, It was amazing & it's great when the plan does come together, mostly, as you say, with Animals like these they generally don't get the Memo, so no guarantees. Yes, I did have expert info, I went with a Pro Photographer from South Africa who planned the trip for me & he specialises in this sort of Flash/Night time Photography, his name is Greg DeToit, you can check his work at gregdetoit.com, amazing Photographer and great guy, heading off to Tanzania with him in June for 3 weeks to shoot the Migration. Leopards are my favourites, Beautiful Animals, Wild Dog, Lion close second & third, Polar Bears in the Arctic not far behind.

And when the Leopards weren't performing, which was seldom, spent time Laying on the sand waiting for the Hippos to flick their ears.

Baby Rhino: 1Dx 400f/2.8 V2 @ f4 & 1/320th
Leopard looking Up: 1Dx 300f/2.8 V2 @ f/7.1 & 1/640th
Leopard Cub: 1Dx 300f/2.8 V2 @ f/11 & 1/125th

All shot at Londolozi & Mala March 2013, the Leopard shot was one I had hoped to get the chance to shoot, a Leopard at night peering up the trunk of the tree just prior to taking the keep, trying to shoot through the ball of the eye, didn't work as well as I'de hoped but Ok just the same.

The Leopard Cub was one of a Pair, Male & Female around 8 to 10 weeks old (this was the Male), only the second time in 8 years I've been fortunate enough to see Young Cub Leopards still with Blue eyes, they start to change to yellow at around 12 weeks. The Mother was moving the pair to a new Den and although the Cubs had no fear, and in fact were inquisitive, the Mother was extremely touchy during the Transfer so we needed to keep some distance.

The young Rhino was a huge laugh, he would creep up to within 10 metres of the vehicle through the tall grass, suddenly see the vehicle then run like hell back to his Mum, did this time and again, very funny little guy.

These are great shots but even after looking at the full JPG, they all seem to be over sharpened to me...more so after the web downsizing.  Did you sharpen these or is this just an affect of compression uploading to the forums?

Hi "Eastwind", Guilty I'm afraid, although I try not to over sharpen, what I post is generally the file that I print, so it's had a little more sharpening than I would normally apply so that it Prints well. But I appreciate your comment and I tend to sharpen to what I feel looks right (In On One), then back off a little, sometimes/often I don't back off enough.

Appreciated Northstar, very few things I enjoy in life more than Wildlife Photography, Photographing Leopards for me is possibly what Photographing Eagles is to Gary Samples, I'de love to Photograph Eagles as well as Gary, but I tend to find they move a little too quick for me, so it's Leopards, with the occasional Wild Dog, Lion or Polar Bear.

I see. Yes for printing its good to over sharpen a little.  Just curious as I notice the compression algorithms on these sites do play with my mind sometimes.  Difficult to make comparisons when everything gets compressed by 50%.

Excellent shots.  I enjoy checking back in to see what else you have posted.

Well, I really appreciate your heads up, made me go back and actually look at what I'de posted, realised the posted files were being way over sharpened, so reviewed my process, found I was sharpening in On One (All Ok), then exporting the file from LR4, but had the "Sharpen for Print" box ticked (Not Good), then resizing in On One Resize also with the Sharpening Box ticked (Really bad Move), so have fixed all that & file now sharpened in On One only, again, Thanks for the heads up.

Londolozi Northern South Africa, Group of 18 Wild Dogs came into the area, Love these Guys, they are the 2nd most endangered Predator in Africa, but amazing to watch when hunting, total group effort, fast & extremely efficient, not often do they miss on a Kill, first animals to get to eat are always the old, lame & young, unlike the Lions, which are Beautiful, but total Thugs.

Hi Gary, yes, have realised that now thanks to helpful comments here.

Love your Eagle shots, I've tried to do a little myself with the new 600 f/4 V2 I have, but I'm not generally quick enough to keep the damn things in focus, needs a lot of practise I think, the Leopards, Lion & Wild Dog at least play the game & move a little slower for me.

Mating Leopards, not sure if I'm allowed to Post this sort of thing here, may upset the faint hearted.

These Guys go at it for 4 to 7 days, pretty well non stop, Female instigates all action, male just does the job & tries to seem nonchalant & get some rest between bouts, they Mate approximately every 3 to 10 minutes, for a WEEK, I have new found respect for Male Leopards, these Boys are Tough !!

If your interested to see the Video of this particular round/location, the chap I was with posted his video on You Tube, it can be found here

1Dx 300f/2.8 L V2, shot @ f5.6 & 1/320th late afternoon, Northern South Africa Mala Mala March 2013.

It was interesting to note when I eventually got home from this trip what Lenses I most used, I carried with me the 24-70f/2.8 L V2, 70-200f/2.8 L V2, 300f/2.8 L V2, 400f/2.8 L V2 & my lovely new 600f/4 L V2.

Hardly used the 24-70 at all, 70-200 mostly at 200 end & 30% of my shots, 600 hardly at all, 400 around 15%, 300 50% of my shots and at between f4 & f/8 mostly, so roll on the seemingly Mythical Canon 200-400f/4 (x1.4), I wonder if Canon will ever get this Lens to market, hard to fathom considering Nikon have had a reasonable 200-400f/4 in production for 10 Years ??

Love the  Leopard shots keep them coming I'm a long glass freak wonderful at 600mm

Hi Gary, Thanks, I think Leopards are for me what perhaps Eagles are for you (Only the Leopards are Generally easier to shoot, except perhaps at night time), Love everything about them. The 600f/4 V2 is my first 600, and this was it's first outing, didn't get too much use on this trip as the Bush was reasonably thick in March, but I'm off to Tanzania in June, then Svalbard for Polar Bears in September, which is what the 600 was purchased for, lovely Lens but really only just starting to get to know it, the 300f/2.8 & 400f/2.8 V2 Lenses have been my main stay to date, cant fault these Lenses in any way, well, perhaps with the exception of Price, but I firmly believe you mostly get what you pay for.

This Guy is called the "Hip Scar Male", obviously because he has a bad scar on his Hip, but I have never seen another Lion with Eyes like this One, blazingly bright yellow, very strange, he is One large male of a Coalition of 4 Brothers that happily share a large area and several prides of Females, very Handsome bunch of Guys, his Brothers don't share the same Eyes as this guy, and although they are all Brothers, Only one of them has a Black Mane, and he is the Alpha of the group and a complete and Total Thug, but very cool just the same.

Lovely pose! Looks totally at ease. No tension anywhere in the body. Look at the paws too. You must have put him at ease. In complete contrast tho the other picture where that one was sizing you up - possibly for a meal :)

Hi RPT, Over a 2 weeks period in March this year, between 2 Areas that covered between them around 75,000 Hectares (Londolozi & Mala mall), we were able to see 24 different Leopards, I went with a Pro Photographer from South Africa, Greg DuToit, very talented young chap that set the Trip up for me, all I told him was that I wanted to shoot Leopards, in the dark, on rocks, in trees, what ever, just Leopards.

The Leopards are in my view, the most Beautiful of the cats, I've not yet had the opportunity to shoot Tiger or Jaguar, on my list, but in Africa these Guys are hard to beat, they are simply Poetry in Motion. This particular Leopard sitting on the Rock, is the same Leopard that I posted before & commented that he made me feel uneasy with that Piercing stare, on this side of the Rock when this Photo was taken, as you say, Mr Cool, totally at ease, couldn't care less about the vehicle, but when we moved around to the front of the Rock to get a head on shot, I half stood in the vehicle to change my 300 to my 400 onto the Wimberley set up, the fact that I had stood & changed the profile of the vehicle, had this guy go from calm & uninterested, to "Food??", you can see the step change in their Body language, but in particular you see it in the Eyes, in this case I remember thinking "Oh S..t, mistake", it's something that always impresses me with these Animals, the fact that you can literally get to a meter of them, they often use the vehicle as a "Bush" when stalking for a Kill, and they totally ignore you, they don't see the "vehicle" as a threat or as food, but the moment you stand up in the vehicle you break that perception they have, "You" then become a potential target, once you sit down again, you can see their eyes simply turn off, your no longer of interest.

I had a similar experience last trip to Africa, had 2 1Dx Bodies + 2 5DMK3 Bodies (5DMK3's I usually use for Underwater Photography), thought the very silent shutter on the 5D would be an asset in some situations, but found the 1Dx shutter on normal wasn't an issue with anything, given the upside of the 1Dx, especially the viewfinder clarity, 5DMK3's were hardly used.

Around 1 in 4 Leopard Cubs survive to maturity, when really young Baboons & Hyenas are the main protagonists, from 1 year onwards it becomes Lions. Cubs will hang around with Mum for up to 3 years, then they are pushed out to go their own way, although Dads have no involvement in the Cubs, I have frequently seen Large Dad leopards handing over a treed kill to a Cub they know is theirs, until they are around 18 Months Old Cubs are unable to Tree a Kill, so Mum takes it up & lets Junior eat in peace & safety from Hyenas & Lions that would otherwise steal the Kill.

1Dx 400f/2.8, Shot @ f/4 & 1/320th, Londolozi Northern South Africa.

Shot at night, some spotlight plus the 600EX-RT for fill, this Guy was just down from a Tree where he had placed his Kill, this particular Leopard they called "Tyson" as in Mike Tyson, real bruiser, and looks it, in this particular case though he had Treed a Kill, and one of his "Sons" had come along, Tyson allowed him to take over the Kill and he went off to hunt some more, unusual behaviour for a Leopard Male in his Prime.

looks like  the auto focus & metering behaved well with the spotlight 


Hi Gary, I was impressed, I had heard a lot prior to this trip about the 1Dx and it's inability to focus in very low light, I didn't find that an issue as long as the subject had some lighting, even a very small amount was enough, the Pro Photographer I was with was shooting a Nikon D3S & also a D3x with a 200-400F/4 Lens, I was shooting 2 1Dx bodies with a 300f/2.8 V2 & a 400f/2.8 V2 and there was no doubt the 1Dx was significantly better at getting focus, I could hear that Nikon 200-400 'hunting" to distraction, to the degree that when I left South Africa, I left the pro Photographer with one of my 1Dx bodies & the 400, at his request, I head off again in June with the same chap & always happy to assist another "Nikonian" across to the dark side.

On the metering side I shot only in Manual, the Camera tended to want to always shoot wide open which makes sense, but with some trial & error I quickly worked something that would keep the Blacks Black, but other than the shots where there was just Rim Lighting, the meter was pretty well doing the job, I could have shot any of this on Aperture or shutter priority without any issue.

I will say though that the amount of shots that would have been more ideally framed if I had had 250mm left me wishing for the Mythical Canon 200-400f/4 (x1.4), hopefully this year. Very few of my shots are less than f/4 so I have high hopes for this Lens, should Canon ever get the thing to Market.

Thanks everybody.  For the final image I cropped a bit more off the top and left more on the left.  I think the focusing was due also in part to the 1Dx as I seem to have much more luck with that than previous cameras.  The golf tournament I had over 900 shots with not one OOF at all.  The lens is really good.  Thanks.

Hi Darlip, putting one together now, should be up & running in about 2 months, will advise the web address once it's done, appreciate your interest.

The Okavango Delta is a wonderful place, I've been going back once or twice a year for the past 6 years, Mombo is the place, but Duba Plains, Vumbura, Kings Pool, Jao & Zafara are all great places to see wildlife. Heading to the Wildebeest Migration this June, and also Siera Kafuma for the Himba People.

Something of interest perhaps, during my last trip to Africa, at some point, one of my 1Dx Bodies sustained a damaged Focus Screen, no idea how this happened, although I'm not particularly delicate with my gear (to me they are just tools for a job), I generally don't drop the gear or knock it about unduly, so how/why the screen broke I cant tell, the screen broke along the lower edge, shows up in the viewer as a Black shatter mark as you would expect from broken glass. Don't know if anyone else has had this issue ?? have to say it's the first time I've ever had to send a Canon Camera back for repair for something like this. Fortunately it was only about the lower 10% of the view finder that was affected so the Camera was completely usable still. I've drowned a 5D & 2 5DMK2's over the years (Underwater housing leaking, at depth, solved that issue by switching from Subal Housings to Seacam Housings), but the screen was surprising.

Gary Samples took offence to someone having a joke about his spelling, or rather grammar, and deleted his account.

So Gary, if you're still reading CR, I'd say there isn't anyone who doesn't appreciate your pictures, and you're being overly sensitive. Everyone is constantly making spelling/ grammar mistakes, especially when posting from an iOS.

I had wondered of course, and i do remember Gary questioning on one of the threads the value in CR, due I think to the negativity of some Posters, so it will be a real pity should he not continue to Post, his Eagle images have been pretty well close to perfect I feel. But being involved in a Public Forum will always have pros & cons, I feel in this Forum at present the pros outweigh the cons, there are a load of very talented people posting on this site, not just excellent photographers but exceptionally smart technical people as well.

Being an Aussie I believe it's expecvted of me to screw up the Queens Engleesh, both Gramatically & Figuritvellyly, I take no offense at correction & any implied critisismn of my Grammer & spelling is taken on very wide Aussie shoulders,  Please come back Gary, I'm missing your Pets.

I wouldn't say "poor". May be the OOF sand at the bottom and a bit on the left - to get rid of the bright reflection near the left edge - upper middle part of the picture. Unfortunately the cone is in exactly the "wrong" spot. So as he comes down his behind may have an unwanted appendage. Did you get one of him landing? Sand flying would add motion to the picture.

I had wondered of course, and i do remember Gary questioning on one of the threads the value in CR, due I think to the negativity of some Posters, so it will be a real pity should he not continue to Post, his Eagle images have been pretty well close to perfect I feel. But being involved in a Public Forum will always have pros & cons, I feel in this Forum at present the pros outweigh the cons, there are a load of very talented people posting on this site, not just excellent photographers but exceptionally smart technical people as well.

Being an Aussie I believe it's expecvted of me to screw up the Queens Engleesh, both Gramatically & Figuritvellyly, I take no offense at correction & any implied critisismn of my Grammer & spelling is taken on very wide Aussie shoulders,  Please come back Gary, I'm missing your Pets.
When he said he was going I somehow thought he was hanging up his "Gone fishing" sign. I did not think he was going away! I hope he comes back! His pictures were fantastic!

1Dx 300f/2.8 V2, shot @ f/5.6 & 1/320th.

12 FPS so a few Images missing, I expected this Big Guy to stay up the tree & consume the Kill, but he did the unexpected, he jumped straight out to the Ground, with the Kill in his mouth, fluffed the exit totally, me, not the Leopard. This Guy was as Big as a Large Female Lion, so he wasn't concerned I guess about eating the Kill on the Ground, not much would mess with Him I imagine.

I was doing a quick product shoot for this restaurant for their new Brunch menu, brought a lighting setup and all my reflectors etc. Turns out the light was PERFECT for about an hour and I did not need any additional light, other then a diffuser right above the food about 24". We shot 5 items in the same light over and over with perfect results every time.

Oh no Crapking, you have to do golf too?  It's my least favorite. 
Here's a track one with 300 f/2.8L I IS:
Lovely shot. How far we're you from the athlete?

Thanks rpt.  I was about 30 yards out.  I couldn't get any closer.  I think I did a poor job of cropping though.
I wouldn't say "poor". May be the OOF sand at the bottom and a bit on the left - to get rid of the bright reflection near the left edge - upper middle part of the picture. Unfortunately the cone is in exactly the "wrong" spot. So as he comes down his behind may have an unwanted appendage. Did you get one of him landing? Sand flying would add motion to the picture.

Thanks rpt.  Yes sometimes in sports the composition issue can get frustrating.  Well, the fact is, I didn't want to be where I was but that's where the officials told me I could go.  And not to mention the sun was above and behind the jumper.  Yes that cone is annoying.  Luckily, I used burst mode on the 1Dx and have the full range of the jumper, which I didn't realize until last night.

I was traveling in the Middle East for almost three weeks at the end of last year. I got up very early on Christmas morning to hike up Mt. Sinai, hoping to catch sunrise. It was cold and threatening to rain when I set off and halfway up the mountain it started snowing. After nearly three hours, I'd made it almost to the top, then waited in one of the huts until first light.

Shot with a 1DX, 24-105/4 IS at ISO 6400. I took countless scenes like this, at dusk as well as dawn, in tunnels under the pyramids and in dark museums, palaces,churches and temples. I am most definitely impressed with the low light capabilities of this camera.

Boy, I'd like to think I had something to do with the return of Gary.  But even if I didn't I'm thrilled with the result.  And this time I got the link to the gallery - wow.  I won't repeat all the superlatives of everyone else.

Gary, as a older retired guy I'm back into photography and love nature.  At thirteen I was into taxidermy but didn't shoot much as there was no end of road kill and everyone helped me fill our family freezer.  Eventually I sold my guns and move to photography with an F1 in the late 70's, but family, house building and car restorations and ......  took precedence.  I'd love to hear some background to shots and more about your choice of gear and strategies and so forth if you can spare the time.  If such is already out there please point me to it.

I'm starting out this spring near Edmonton, Alberta  where I live, with my new 6D and 300 2.8 II with X1.4 and X2 III which is all I can afford, well at least until I sell some collector cars!  Elk Island National Park is near by with its Bison and prairie wildlife and the migratory birds are now arriving.  I'll be doing my best to capture something worthy of posting with a renewed spirit after viewing those shots of yours!  Oh to live in the mountains.  Thanks for sharing your talent.

Well Jack you've started back with a pretty good set up, I bought the 6D for my Lad & I'm reasonably impressed with the Camera, but you have in my opinion, one of the 2 best Lenses Canon have ever made, 200f/2 L IS & 300f/2.8L IS V2, I'm sure we'll be seeing some great Images at some point, good luck, one oldish retiree to another.

Same for all the others that participate on the forum - thanks for the shots and info.  There is so much to do and so little time.

In my days with the F1 I was pretty enthused and now when I look back and think of the opportunity I've got at this moment, with this level of equipment, it sends chills up my spine.  Let's see how many more years do I have .........

Now here I is waiting for Canon to return my stuff!!  Our late spring this year is almost here - oh dear!

I have a whole new respect for the 70-200f/28 II, I know it's a great Lens & I use mine a lot, but wasn't aware you could get this level of sharpness out of it for Portrait work, the lovely young Lady & the Make Up artist help, definitely, but there's great skills in an Image like this, well done Bornshooter.

Thanks again :) the 70-200 mk2 is a beautiful lens this was shot at f5.6 the trick was nailing focus through the net,the holes were small i used spot focus for this too :).

May be try leaving the colour of the eyes in and get the rest B&W. The eyebrows and eyes are where you want people to focus - right?
Or may be the lip colour... Having shot B&W for a loooooong time I somehow have got hard wired for B&W. The nearest colour processing was 1000 km away in 1967! And it cost an arm and a leg compared to B&W contact print...

Show Off   :)

But seriously, great shot, an issue I always had with these shots was my reliance in using centre point focus (Hangover from the 5DMK2), so the Cat would almost always move off the Centre Point Focus resulting in OOF frames, I've re learnt to use all 61 Points & move the focus point to, in the case of a Leopard ready to go up a tree, his head at the top of the frame, in the case of your Cat shot, the head at the left of the frame, took a while to get out of bad habits learnt on the 5DMK2.

Hey guys....just love to read the dialogue between two experts in their field discussing how they do it....Awesome!  Of course it goes without saying that I'm much better than both of you combined and......totally kidding/joking....Love all shots from both of you!   Keep sending them in!!

This post might be the best on CR...truly believe that.

Yea, I think this Photography thing is a bit like life in General, you just start to think your getting good, and you Die, but it's a good ride while it lasts.

Gary, my Kinda Porn, like what your doing with the 24-70 II, I get so wrapped up with Wildlife I really stop looking at what's around me, Landscape, People. Working on some of that, Iceland in August, something different for me.

I meant to mention for info, sent one of my 1Dx Bodies in after the recent South Africa Shoot, had what I thought was a Shattered Focus Screen, bottom of viewfinder, according to canon Singapore the Focus Screen had melted along the lower edge, weird.

Only thing I can think is I generally leave the Camera + Lens set up on the vehicle, Maybe I left the Lens pointing directly into the Sun for an extended period ?? May have acted like a Magnifying Glass back via the Mirror onto the Screen, first time I've had/heard of this issue.

"Yea, your right, looking through that viewfinder can get you into all sorts of trouble, I'm often surprised when I look up to see how quickly I seemed to get into the Crap."

They should put a warning on the back of the camera (like they do on your car's sideview mirror)...Objects in your viewfinder may be closer than they appear ;D

I often think of the scene out of the movie "The Dirty Dozen", where Donald Sutherland is asked why his Tank has 3 forward gears & 7 reverses, his answer "I like to think i can get out of trouble faster than i get into it", looking through that viewfinder is a little like that.

RPT, eml58, Gary Samples, Lemmy and others; Your shots are all very amazing and an inspiration to us all.  It's wonderful to be associated with such a fine group of photographers that know how to properly use the tools we have to produce such beautiful images.

Attached are a few of my recent shots.  The in-flight images were taken with a 70-200 mm f/2.8L II USM + 1.4X and the Wood Duck in the water was shot using a 600 mm f/4.0L II USM.  No cropping on any of them.

Full 180.  You must have been hanging upside down for that one!  :)

Bit of fun from a concert/benefit I shot the other day for Burning Man.

She was, I had placed my camera on the speaker deck she was hanging above. The flash stopped her but let the background blur a bit due to the music, which is exactly what I wanted. Super excited as the company she works for contacted me for a full head-shot session of all their dancers.

Great Photo RMC33 & well done on the work pick up.

I've read a bit about this "Burning Man" seen some Photos, looks like a nice event to Photograph.

Love the 8-15, use it in my Underwater Photography, mostly @ 15mm.

Hi Serendipidy, processed through LR4 for WB adjustment, Photoshop CS6 for some levels adjustment, copied the original in PS, took the copy into Filter forge 3 and applied "Photo Lighting" filter (Which gives it that dreamy quality), back into PS, applied 50% Opacity & applied Overlay Lighting. Some Sharpening in On One.

Glad you like it, sometimes they work, sometimes they don't.

Nice shot Lemmy Shoyu, I'm interested to know how you Housed the 1Dx, I use Seacam Housings for my 5DMK III & 1DMK IV for my Underwater shooting, interested to House the 1Dx at some point so always interested to know how others are doing it and with what sort of success, I used to use Subal, but after drowning 2 5DMK II's switched to Seacam.

Ouch!  Sorry to hear that.
Splash housings for surf photos aren’t built to go to depths required for scuba diving.  One housing manufacturer says that after 25 feet the pressure will depress all the buttons on the controls.  I’m afraid I can’t give a good recommendation for a housing, but I’ll PM you.

Nice one Sanj, I've been siting on the sidelines considering the Zeiss 15f/2.8 Distagon, I have the 8-15f/4 & 14f/2.8 Canon Lenses, but I think the Zeiss might do them both for pure IQ.

curious, do these kids have to worry about snakes or gators in a river like that?  Probably a dumb question but the thought came to mind.

Again, nothing like what you guys are posting, but I'm just enjoying the AF performance of the 1DX/70-200 f/2.8L II IS performance.  Auto ISO with CWA on the 1DX nailed the exposure pretty close too.  This is a Tiffin pole vaulter at the GLIAC Outdoor T&F Championships on Thursday.  1DX, 70-200 f/2.8L II IS at 95mm, 1/5000s, f/3.2, ISO 100.

Thanks.  It was always below his face, but upon pushoff, it went counterclockwise up and around.

300 2.8 IS

Shot at f4...1/1250.  I will say that this combo has been magical for me....stunning IQ.  I can only imagine how good the 300 2.8 II would be. 

I've settled in on case 1 servo AF as my "go to" case.  I've tried all the different "cases" and have found case 1 to be "old reliable" as compared to the others.

Lacrosse is new for me...1dx nailed it as usual.

Hi Northstar, in Java there's no really poisonous snakes & no Gators, but the river itself is used at this village level, for bathing, toilet, washing clothes etc, the river runs clear directly from the mountains behind us, but downstream anywhere would have to be a health hazard for anyone that doesn't have the build up of immunity that doing this from birth brings. When your shooting in places like this you need to be aware of villagers bathing, I always ask permission to shoot around the area & I never shoot people in personal situations, bathing etc, these are very much your basic village Indonesian, Beautiful people.

Thanks Guys, it was a step change for me, usually I'm shooting stuff with Big Teeth and a Bad Attitude, it was great to shoot without having to look over my shoulder, well, except after a while these Kids thought it might be good fun for the photographer to get wet as well, thank you Canon for the 1Dx & weather proofing.

Hi Northstar, like it as well, I try to give some idea of the area, what I was trying to do as well was get the far distant "Mist" into the shot, it was interesting in that the chap I was shooting with was using a 5DMK II & a Tamron Lens, same settings but he was getting a load more of that Misty effect in the background, we put it down mostly to quality of Glass, my Canon L glass was just cutting through the haze, better colour & contrast, his less quality Glass was picking it all up, but interestingly some of his shots simply looked better because of it, next time I'll bring along some non L Glass & try it again.

It was not about the face. If he did not go counter clockwise the pole might have fallen on the bar. It seems inclined towards the bar...

Zeiss 15mm

Nice one Sanj, I've been siting on the sidelines considering the Zeiss 15f/2.8 Distagon, I have the 8-15f/4 & 14f/2.8 Canon Lenses, but I think the Zeiss might do them both for pure IQ.

Lovely shot, be interested in your view on the Zeiss 15f/2.8

I used to have the Canon 14mm. I sold that and got the Zeiss 15mm. The 15mm has much better corner sharpness. Also it is handy for video. :)

In the series of Images I've posted here that involve the Small Village in the Mountains behind Jakarta, it is clear a lot of the Images are taken at this small weir, the reason for this is that the Village is split by the river, the only place for several Kilometres upstream & downstream to pass from one side of the village to the other side, is via this small weir, you sit yourself upstream and let village life come to you, unfortunately other things come to you as well so although your not looking over your shoulder for Leopards & Lions, you do keep a healthy lookout upstream for "deposits".

1Dx 200f/2 L IS, Shot @ f/4 & 1/50th ISO250.

Group of perhaps 15 year olds going from School on the left bank, to home on the right bank, obviously these are older Children and their need to keep dry and maintain their dignity is clear, as against their younger Brothers & Sisters in previous Posts, but given time, they all end up like the Children in this Image, keeping their shoes dry & maintaining that very important 15 year old dignity.

This bear was staring int this stream looking for salmon, I liked the way the light was coming from the side and a bit behind him.

300mm f2.8 1/1000 sec iso1250

For those who would like to know, this is a composite of 2 exposures of the bear. Underexposed by 1.3 stops in camera then a further -1 stops in one image blended with a -3 stop image. The original is portrait orientation and height of the frame is almost full frame. I wanted a bit more river bed for it to "look into" so I added that from another image. (The stream bed shot has a spirit bear standing on the same log but this one has more impact.)

It was quiet an experience being this close to a wild bear, and this one had a bit of an attitude that made me a bit nervous.

1Dx 300f/2.8, Shot @ f/6.3 1/320th ISO1600

The choice on the day was Leopards, or, A pack of Wild Dog had come into the area, no choice, these Animals are not only Beautiful but severely endangered, so we looked for these Guys all day, finally found them hunting just on Sunset. The tall Grass made them, for me, exceptionally hard to shoot in the fading light, so every shot I tried with the Pack Running I blew, but everything stands still sometime.

Yes, I can see at least 2 600's in that first shot.

I'm starting to think I'm spending too much time in places like Tanzania, Botswana, Antarctica.

Great shot Bornshooter, especially the one first one, I like how the light falls on the......trees.

I've had to use recovery Sw in the past, not because the card failed, it was for a computer forensic investigation at work.  The recovery is very reliable.

I have heard of similar issues from people who never format their cf or sd cards, just delete the files and keep shooting.  You should reformat every time and in the case of sd cards it should be a low level format.

This would be a good topic for a new thread.  Probably just not here.

Hi Guys & Thankyou for the kind comments, something to share though, and not really re 1Dx Images, so a little off topic.

While I was shooting a few days ago I found that when I was part way into transferring Images from my CF Card to my MacPro (Images shot on my 1Dx), the download stopped & a message came up that the remaining files were corrupted. I had downloaded 5 of 338. Tried my MacBook Pro, and the message changed to "unable to download these files", put the Card back into the 1Dx, Camera wouldn't accept the Card but suggested a "re format", tried the card in both my 1dx Bodies & my 5DMK III Bodies, same story, somehow the CF Card had become corrupted.

I did a in Camera reformat of the Card & put it back into the 1Dx, shot off 50 Images & all worked just fine, no issues downloading to the computer.

Friend of mine suggested i should have tried Image retrieval software before re formatting, but it was too late of course, then I searched & found software called "Wondershare data Recovery", tried it, then bought it & it actually pulled off the CR2 Files from the CF Card, after re format, saved 326 of the Original CR2 Files. I imagine there's a lot of this software out there, but I just wasn't aware it could recover files after a Camera Re Format, in fact it recovered almost every file ever taken on that particular CF Card.

I would also note that I currently use Lexar Pro 1000x 128GB CF Cards, may have been an isolated incident, but for the future I've set my Bodies to Copy to two CF Cards at the same time on the 1Dx & to both the CF Card & SD Card on the 5DMK III, Unless both Cards Die, I'll always have two Copies in Camera. I had become complacent re the Cards reliability, clearly the CF/SD Cards do have issues from time to time.

Purpose of the Post is simply information, this was the first time I had had this issue and I was glad there was a reasonable resolution short of 100% loss of my files.

"Dwight...very nicely done. Makes me want to go to a zoo soon."

Thanks, serendipidy!  Just like I have been with the images everyone is sharing on this thread, I'm glad I have inspired you to go shoot at the zoo.  :)

"Dwight, beautiful shots of subjects that might be less than "beautiful"...in the eye of the beholder of course!"

Thanks, CarlTN!  I try to put a different twist to zoo animals.  I like to capture them in a decisive moment wherein they're doing humanly behavior.  Still trying to be patient and still learning.

"hi dwight...how's the 1dx treating you?"

Hey Northstar!  The 1DX has been nothing short of superb so far!  Not a single error message on my 'Camera status log' so that's a good thing too.

"i like your second shot of the gorilla with the plant on his face....i like his expression!"

Thanks for the kind comment!  He was relishing his snack!

"remember when we were talking 6 months ago about counting actuations up to 1000, well now i'm somewhere closer to 30k lol...how about you?"

You're right...been over that now...no niggles (apart from the "not so" silent shutter) and no regrets.  Sadly, not as much time as I would like to get...I'm at a little over 15K.

Hi Dwight & Thanks.

It's in the Eyes, when ever possible get the light so it's falling into the Eyes.

Your Gorilla Shots are great, especially the one using the leaf, some are fortunate and are born with an artistic touch (People, not the Gorillas), the rest of us make up for it by making mistakes and learning from them.

Keep posting, I like your work.

Just upgraded to the 1Dx from the 5D3, I am just learning how to use it.  On the plus side I am getter bigger biceps too.  Here are a couple of images that I shot the other morning with the f1.2 50L and the 600EX-RT for fill, the surfer at the shower was @ 2.8/1250/iso 400 and the girls were at f5.6/2000/iso 400

What's really amazing to me at least, is how well you can pull up shadows in post, and then how well the files sharpen, in just a matter of 60 seconds post-processing.  This was shot during the middle of the day, maybe around 3pm, and the runner was heavily shadowed.  But with the 1Dx RAW files in post, not really too big of a problem for web viewing.  Here is a 3-shot hurdler sequence from Malone:

I then quickly turned with my 1Dx and 400 f/2.8L I IS lens, and with bad framing, still caught the other Malone hurdler at the absolute very last moment.  I posted it because of how quickly the AF worked to lock on the new hurdler:

Bought a 5D3 to replace my 5D2 back in May last year.  Got my 1Dx in October.

I have to say, that other than when I want the extra pixels, the 5D3 sits in the bag and the 1Dx gets used far more often.  The images just seem to have "something" that is better, in my personal opinion, than the 5D3.

Don't mistake this as knocking the 5D3....excellent camera and I love it....but if I have a choice (and I do), I'll pick up the 1Dx first.  Really wish I had waited for the big megapixel Canon and just got two 1Dx's in the meantime.

My own take as well, I rarely use my 2 5DMK III's now that I have a pair of 1Dx Bodies, especially as I shoot a lot of low light wildlife, but the 5DMK III comes into it's own I think on Landscape, City type work, but it'll be gone the minute the High MP Camera hits, then the 1Dx for action, the High MP for everything else.

But I cant see it before mid 2014.

Lovely Image Sanj, Lad with the Axe would grab my attention.

Another place I've never been to, India, absolutely have to spend some time there, so many Beautiful places and Gorgeous People to see & experience.

I'de love to get there for the Tigers, but I've heard so many poor reports on how crazy the experience has become with Huge crowds of vehicles & "Me Me" type Photographers, if there's a more in depth quiter & more personal way to do this I'de appreciate the heads up.

I went to Ankor Wat last year for 4 days, last time I was there was 1986, then it was an amazing experience, this time around I couldn't wait to get away, so sad really.

Sanj, Lovely picture. What were the settings? There is no EXIF to refer to. BTW, I converted it to B&W and it was so striking. The blue distracts me in the colour version. In the B&W, you go straight to the sadhu's face. And that after simply converting to B&W - no fancy profile stuff...

Lovely picture. I am taking the liberty of uploading that B&W conversion. I hope you do not mind.

The 1DX and Canon's excellent lenses has enabled capture of images I only dreamed of in the past.  We are so fortunate to have access to equipment with such outstanding capabilities.  ISO 5,000 with next to no noise, did not think possible in the past, but I shoot at that ISO frequently.  I refer to the 1DX as my nocturnal camera.  Fast autofocus that can track ducks and birds with rapid random motion, just can't believe how good it is.  The Bufflehead is a great example of how fast the focus can lock on.  I only was on this bird for a fraction of a second before the image was taken.  I really didn't think I had captured it.  Anyone who has photographed these birds knows how fast they accelerate and fly.

I don't profess to be an expert at setting up a 1DX or the 5D Mk III, but what generally works for me is to use the manual selection of the AF point along with AF Point expansion, top/bottom/left/right for rapidly moving subjects or no expansion point when I really want to force the camera to focus at a particular spot.  I still have yet to decide which AF case best fits the type of action.  If I'm finding that a particular case is not working well, I change it to one that might.  Anyone care to offer their suggestions as to what AF case number they think works best for particular action shots?

The biggest issue I've found with the images shot with the 600 mm lens at close focus (less than 25 feet), is its shallow dept of field.  If the focus is not spot on, the shot is lost. 

Photographing the Grebes has been fun, challenging and an education.  They have become so accustomed  to me that I can get closer than 15' to them without them being upset.

Thanks to all of you how post images on this forum.  This is a group of outstanding photographers!

Sharp Shot, you're new here as I relatively am.  I must say that your photos and demeanor are worthy of emulating.  You have just instantly become one of my most admired photographers on this forum.

The 600 (I don't have one and don't intend to own one) is just out-of-this-world!  The sharpness of the lens is as expected and the OOF area on those images are just perfect!  You absolutely hit the nail on the head with your focus point/s!  Keep shooting and keep sharing!  Thanks again!

Once again a subtle use of light to produce an atmospheric picture. I particularly like the way you've allowed the two people to lie on the extreme rear plane of focus, giving sharp foreground. I presume you've focused on the slab of meat or even the apples.

I'd be interested to know what time of day it was taken.

Careful with them smokers, eml58!  Nicotine sticks to the gear and will deteriorate their value faster than all those safaris you go to!  :)  Besides, we all know second-hand smoke is just as bad!  Another great shot...remarkable colors...they paint the mood of the photo!

Hi Sporgon, around 0730, it had been raining & the Sun only just came out, this Market I shoot at a lot as it's inside an old Bamboo Structure so the light seeps through holes in the roof, after about 0800 the Sun is up to high and the Light doesn't slant through the roof as well, and everyone smokes like there's no tomorrow, and for some of them, there's probably not. I focussed on the Apples trying to throw everything else a little more into the background and to deepen the shadows.

Hi Bornshooter, it's a great Lens, when it's treated right it's about as good as anything out there, I find I prefer to focus (when I have time) with Live view with this Lens in Particular. Only other Lens I think has the precise sharpness is the 200f/2, although the 300f/2.8 Version 2 & 135f/2 are close.

I shoot in RAW so everything goes through LR4, I sort out the whites & Blacks plus any White balance tweak in LR4 and crop here as well if necessary, head into Photoshop CS6 for Levels, Brightness adjustments and any localised adjustments to lighting, contrast through Layers, Off over to On One Perfect Effects 4 for adjustments to such as Vignette, sharpening to eyes & any localised colour adjustments, then back to Photoshop for overall sharpness. I convert to B&W mostly in NIK's Silver Effex Pro 2, and I sometimes use On Ones Perfect B&W, I take care of Noise when required in NIK's Dfine 2. The only other software I use is Filter forge 4 when it's raining I'm bored and I just want to mess around with an Image.

The attached pretty well went through that process, excluding Filter Forge, B&W conversion in NIK's Silver Effex Pro 2.

Dwight,
Thank you so much for your complement.  While I had been following CanonRumors for a long time, it was Gary Sample's magnificent eagle and other shots that convinced me to begin posting.  There are many really great photographers that post on this site.  We all benefit from each other's postings.

Hi Guys,
Just back into Jakarta today, will go out tomorrow & shoot some trees or something, post some stuff tomorrow evening, keen to see myself how it compares to the 200f/2, 300f/2.8 V2, 400f/2.8 V2 & 600f/4 V2, I cant set side by side with the 400 as I lent it to a friend of mine in South Africa, I'll pick the 400 back up in 2 weeks when I get to Dar Es Salam on the way to Tanzania. But I can do side by side with the 200, 300 & 600.

You can see the OOF ball being served to them.  This is the receiving team - I tried to catch the ball in flight coming toward them (away from me) before they started moving, but I was standing further from the ball / net than I wanted, and ended up catching the players in full focus and ball OOF instead. Actually came out better this way I think.

Hi Krob78, at 62 this is the only type of new Baby that's acceptable, anything that squakes, needs nappies changed and wakes you up at 0130 to be Fed, needs to be shot, at distance, with an 800f/5.6

Not too scientific, shot with 1Dx from my front Balcony @ISO100

1st set 200-400f/4 @ 200f4 compared to 200f/2 @ f/4
2nd set 200-400f/4 @ 300f/4 compared to 300f/2.8 Version 2 @ f/4
3rd Set 200-400f/4 + 1.4x in place @ 560f/5.6 compared to 600f/4 @ f/5.6

Nb. I added 1.5 stops in Post to exposure to compensate for the use of the 1.4x Converter.

No sharpening, no other changes except converted CR2 RAW files from LR4 at 50% to Jpegs.

Some conclusions.

It's obvious you need to add around 2/3 stop exposure when using the 200-400 compared to the equivalent Prime, makes sense, more Glass.

When using the 1.4x Converter, same as any converter, add about 1.5 stops exposure.

at 1/1 I'm sort of battling to find any difference in sharpness, I imagine if you got right into the files you will come up with the Primes being sharper, I hope so otherwise why Pay all that Money for the Prime, but at 1/1, it's hard to tell the difference.

Except for the comparison with the 600f/4 @ f/5.6, it's minimal, but the 600 is marginally sharper, then you would expect that as the 600 isn't using the 1.4x converter.

I'm impressed, of course I just paid 11.5k for the 200-400f/4 so I need to be impressed, but I am, especially in the side by side with my 300f/2.8 V2 Lens, this has been my go to Lens for sharpness at all times, the 200-400 really does compare well against it.

Next thing is to test the 200-400 against a Cheetah @ 80 KPH, then we see how it really compares.

Hope this is of some limited use to you all.

I had no idea that zoom lenses f stops do not tally with prime lens equivalent f stop. Hmmm. Are you sure about this? I would think that f stop is calculated based on how much light hits the sensor and no the front element of the lens. Am confused.

Yes, next test is focus and I think it will fare well in that!

Sanj, I'm by no stretch a scientific Photographer, what I did notice, and you can see in the Images I posted, that at equivalent everything (200-400f/4 shot @ f/4 compared to 200f/2 shot at f/4) there is a perceived difference in light to the Images, the 200-400 Images all are slightly darker than the equivalent Prime (200/300/600), I am making an assumption (Generally a huge mistake), that the slightly darker Images coming from the Zoom Lens compared to the Prime is due to more Glass in the Zoom, it's very evident when you drop the 1.4x Converter into place, an immediate darkening of the Image, which then requires around +1 to +1.5 stops more exposure to bring the Image back to "Normal", this is no different to when I'm using the separate 1.4x Converter on my 200/300/400 & 600 primes. I also found in dim light once you drop the Converter into place you begin to have some focus hunt, again, similar to the Primes when using a Converter.

But your right of course, no matter the Lens, Zoom or Prime, the measurement is always light onto the Sensor, but why the difference you can see in the Zoom compared to the Primes ?? it's fairly obvious the Primes have very slight + exposure at their respective focal lengths, beats me, I'm sure one of the Guys will know the reason, escapes me.

My main concern with the 200-400 was always how well it stacked against Primes for sharpness at 200/300/400 & 600 (almost at 560), in this regard I'm exceptionally satisfied, ability to Hand Hold, again very good, the 200-400 is slightly heavier than the 400f/2.8 but it doesn't feel that way when hand holding the 200-400, I hazard a guess this is due to the distribution of weight being across the Lens in the 200-400 and front heavy in the 400f/2.8. But to be honest I will generally be using this Lens on a Monopod or tripod with a Wimberley.

Length isn't an issue, the 200-400 is 1mm longer than the 400 so not an issue. Waiting now for a RRS foot replacement and some Lens Coat covers, then into the field, I'll post again mid July when I having something that moves quicker than the Flowers.

This certainly does happen. Quite why I am not so sure. It seems to be more prevalent on the slower zooms when compared with the equivalent faster prime. For instance you see this on both the 24-105 f4 and the new 24-70 f4. Shot at exactly the same exposure to say a 50 1.4 the data from the zoom appears to be more dense, with less luminosity, but if you compare the histograms the data for the zoom will be more bunched to the left - under exposed.

This is why for many years I was convinced that the primes were giving more 'brio' to the picture, but in actual fact it was just under exposing on the zoom. ETTR 1 or 2/3 and the lenses are equal.

As I mentioned at the beginning, this does not appear to be the case, or at least much less, with the 2.8 zooms. The new 200-400 is inevitably a 'slow' zoom in this comparison.

@eml - looks like stunning potential. I guess in this day and age the only ground that primes hold is faster aperture, price and size/weight. However in the case the later doesn't seem to be much of an advantage either.

Post by: privatebydesign on June 01, 2013, 07:00:07 AM
F stop is not a measure of light hitting the sensor. It is just maths for how big the aperture is in relation to the focal length. 50mm f2 = 25mm aperture (apparent aperture) 600mm f4 = 150mm aperture.

T stops, as in with the Cine line of lenses, are a measurement of light transmission, all glass causes some light loss and a T stop figure takes that into account, so a matched set of cine primes will all have identical light transmission to the sensor.

Hence an f2.8 prime with few elements, like the 100 macro, will be brighter at a given aperture than the 70-200 f2.8 zoom with 25+ elements. If they were both T2.8 (normally a little less so T3.2) then they would both be exactly the same brightness at any T value.

I really think, with the interest this new lens will have, a new thread would be the best place for the shots from it, suitably titled of course. Maybe not as many posters but I am sure many interested viewers  :)

One question: Where you shooting manual exposure or auto?

Hi Sharpshot, always Manual, very seldom shoot Automated, I use a Sekonic Light meter 758DR/478DR to work initial set up, then change f/stop, ISO & shutter speed as the situation unfolds.

Not likely to have much opportunity to use the Lens until I get to Tanzania mid June, then I'm gone for 6 weeks, so will Post something again towards end July, I'm sure before then there will be a lot more People Posting their views on the Lens.

As far as People that have actually used the Lens I haven't heard any poor reports, including People that used the Lens at the London Olympics, I'm looking forward to seeing how well the autofocus tracks on a fast moving subject, that for me will be the real test, the Sharpness is clearly there. I did notice even in Ande Rousses review that with one exception his shots were mostly static, although there were some shots of a Leopard leaping a stream, so hopeful.

"One question: Where you shooting manual exposure or auto?"

It has to be manual, if it was auto exposure the metering would allow for the difference in T value.

If one f4 lens transmits 99% of the light and another only 50% of the light (an extreme for demonstration only!) if the first auto exposure was f4 and 1/100 @ iso100 then the second lens would be metered at f4 and 1/50 @ iso100, these would both give you 18% grey mid toned exposures. Effectively the camera just sees the 50% transmission lens as though the day was a bit darker, it has dark glasses on!  :)

In manual mode the the 99% lens image would be one stop brighter than the 50% lens image if you exposed them both the same, the meter is out of the equation in M. The meter in the viewfinder would indicate underexposure with the 50% lens, but as you set the eposure the camera can't compensate for the light loss.

The remains of a piano were sitting in a builder's skip close to my house. I took a few snaps and showed them to a singer/song writer friend of mine who needed some portraiture and we ended up with this – the 'nice' thing is, by day she's a piano teacher.

Shot on a bright day, but stopped down to near black and lit with three 600s. LR then 'bleach' processed with Nik Color Efex Pro 4.

But I loved the B&W of Rhonda, and she is Lovely,,,,for 42.

First off, great shots everybody.  There is some amazing talent both here and in other photo gallery threads.  I had to shoot a middle school invitational for their track program awards banquet, so I thought I'd drop one in here.

Bdun...another very nice action shot from you.  Love the facial expression on this girl...if you look at her face for a moment, you can almost feel her emotions....hopeful and striving to win, yet at the same time some worry that she might not...mixed with intense desire.

I cropped and reposted to bring us closer to her face....I hope you don't mind.

Again...well done.

No offence taken Bornshooter, my Aussie humour forbids it, we are all having Fun, well, until this Image of all the great tiling in Hotel Rooms in Prague, Now I know your just teasing us, as Gary mentioned, I love the tiling, and the light, and the......toilet paper rolls, exquisite.

And I know about the Water, Dangerous stuff, best taken in small doses, otherwise you end up in Prague Hotel Rooms, with....great Tiling.

Thanks Northstar, I think I'm voting to Tag along with Bornshooter, he seems to go to all the interesting places with 42 year olds that look 20, Hotel Rooms with Beautiful....Tiling, Glasgow days full of Bonnie Lasses & No Rain.

I seem to end up in places where everything wants to eat you or trample you, or Old Guys killing themselves slowly with bad habits.

But you've got to get your Fun where you can, and that seems to be where I get mine, I'de enjoy having any of you along anytime.

This rarely used substitute had just made a huge play in the state championship to help establish an insurmountable lead - here he is subbing back off the court, one can only wonder how proud / happy he really felt to make a play that counts...

It's got to be CR tinkering with the JPG files as this too seems a bit oversharpened to me compared to what we should see with just a RAW image.  Otherwise both are excellent.

Thanks! It's what we do almost every day  :) Love how the 1dX really can control the highlights so that I can expose the shadowside that good, lots of info in those files! The swing-picture I had a few tries, because I want to go as close as possible, but looking through the VF at 24mm tends to make it look safe, but very close to getting kicked in the head, lol.

I really like the first one.  Seen out of context, by itself, it looks like the SE has some attitude, almost like he's walking down a water filled alley for a fight scene in "Water Side Story!" getting ready to say; "Hey, whatchoo doing in my territory"...  Lots of fun, beautiful image!

Thanks, guys.  The terns look great early in the season with their dark black markings on the head but it makes the eyes hard to see.  Later in the year there is more white mixed in with the black so the bird doesn’t look as striking but the eyes stand out.

Taking a overnight break in JoBurg on the way to Northern South Africa from Tanzania & The Serengeti.

Posted some comments and Images on the 200-400 Thread re the 200-400 and initial thoughts of the Lens, in a nutshell, superb, fantastic Lens, sharp, fast focussing, supreme wildlife Lens.

Some Images shot with the 1Dx & 200-400, not my best as I'm on the Fly, so anything that looks off will be me, not the Lens or Camera Combo.

Amazing shots eml58!!  I have pre-ordered the 200-400...still waiting for its arrival. I have been having second thoughts on this lens, so any info would be greatly appreciated. Also, which other thread did you posts images from the 200-400mm?

Hi Raptors, I posted the same Images on a thread here re the 400f/2.8 versus the 200-400, but once I'm Home in around 2 weeks I'll Post more on the 1Dx Site.

I also posted on the other thread my initial views of the 200-400 compared to the other 2 Lenses I am carrying, the 300f/2.8 v2 & 400f/2.8 v2.

For Wildlife out to 600 you wont find anything better, the ability to start tracking an Animal at 560 f/5.6 then track towards you, dropping the 1.4x extender out getting you back to 400f/4 then zooming all the way back to 200f/4 with one touch while never loosing Focus, is just amazing. After a week of this I have left the 300 & 400 back at Camp and just use the 200-400 & the 70-200f/2.8 L II both Attached to 1Dx Bodies.

I tried setting my other 1.4x converter in place as well as engaging the built in 1.4x converter, although it works just fine, auto focus is maintained, Images do show fall off, so for me this wont be something I'll consider, using the 2x converter simply degrades the Image too much for me, works Yes, but you loose autofocus, and poor Image Quality is the result.

But the Lens is great, sharp, smooth Zoom, the flip in Converter is a dream, and Focus Tracking is spot on, on Cheetah on a KIll at around 80Kph the only time I lost Focus was if the whole Cheetah went behind a Bush, through Tall Grass worked a treat.

Hi Viggo, Currently on Safari in Tanzania and South Africa, at the moment in South Africa near Londolozi so we have Internet connection, wonders of modern technology, amazing stuff.

The Burning Wildebeest was one of those opportunities that come by chance, we were shooting in an area of Tanzania near the Mara River, basically hoping for a Migration Crossing, which unfortunately didn't happen for us, when we decided it might be interesting to head to the front of several Grass Fires that were Burning in the area, in front of the Flames were Zebra, Wildebeest, Kudu, Lions, Impala all trying to get away from the Wind Driven Fire, we just kept mostly to the side of the Flames (being directly in front had the potential to end up like the Burning Wildebeest) and Photographed as much of the Action as we could of Animals running for their Lives, the attached Kudu shot was typical, smoke in the background giving some extra punch to the fleeing animal, and he was running from the Fire, not from us.

Hi eml58, thank you for taking the time to reply...I really appreciate it.  I went back and found your article, initial views of the 200-400mm. In that post, you stated that you need to add 2/3 stop exposure when using the 200-400 compared to the prime...are you still finding that? At a recent show, I tested the 200-400 vs the 300mm 2.8, and I also noticed that the pictures were slightly darker. I did read the explanation from privatebydesign, just wondered if it changes the way you set your exposure?  I am pleased to hear, that the Focus Tracking is spot on!!  I also shoot with a 1DX, what AF case number do you use most often?

BTW, your recent image...running Kudu very impressive...actually all your images are classic!!  The big cats, are also on top of my list of favorite aimals...I hope someday I will have the opportunity to photograph these amazing animals.

Looking forward to seeing more of your images.
Thanks again.

If your shooting in Manual, you need to compensate for the 1.4x Converter once you engage it, if your shooting Aperture or Shutter Priority, the Camera takes care of it, I tend to shoot Manual and compensate with ISO adjustments.

I shoot Case 2 mostly, Tracking Sensitivity set to -1 or -2 depending on the situation, Accel/Decel set on 1, AF Point switching set to 0. All of this I set up in "My Menu" so I can adjust on the Fly when necessary. I set C1 for Still/slow moving subjects (Aperture Priority), C2 for Fast Moving subjects (Shutter Priority) & C3 is set up for Landscape (Not used too much I'm afraid). I shoot almost exclusively in AI Servo, either Centre Spot Focus for slower standing Animals, and have the Depth of Field preview Button set to switch to Single Spot 61 Point Tracking for Fast Moving Subjects. That's about all my Brain can handle, I vary ISO a lot to get the Shutter Speeds I need, and although there's loads of Hype about the 1Dx ISO ability, and it is good compared to previous Bodies, I try not to get the ISO above 1250, I'll go to 1600 in a Pinch, and nearly always shoot 200/400 or 800 ISO for best results.

Hi RPT, Thanks, your right, i became fascinated with trying to get a direct on shot of these Big Birds coming into a Kill, harder than I thought as you had to get upwind of the Kill, but not too close that the Lapid Faces wouldn't Land, the smaller Vultures didn't care, but the Big Lapid Face had a larger personal space.

Hi RPT, Thanks, your right, i became fascinated with trying to get a direct on shot of these Big Birds coming into a Kill, harder than I thought as you had to get upwind of the Kill, but not too close that the Lapid Faces wouldn't Land, the smaller Vultures didn't care, but the Big Lapid Face had a larger personal space.

Attached Female Lion in the early morning Glow, Tanzania near the Mara River.

1Dx 400f/2.8 +1.4x, Shot @ 560mm f/4 & 1/320th ISO320

eml58, shooting BIF, is definitely different...but you did a great job on the Lappet-Faced Vulture & African ground Hornbill. 
The Sunrise Glow - female lion image, what can I say...brilliant...love the colour.

Question: I see you used the 400 f/2.8 instead of the 200-400mm.  Is that because of the low light? Do you really see a difference, better bokeh/DOF with the 400 2.8 vs 200-400, now that you've had a chance to shoot some real world comparisons? I did read the thread 400 2.8 vs 200-400.

P.s thanks for the info re-AF cases! My 1DX is at Canon re- product advisory.

Color looks fine.  Its very warm toned likely due to sun angle but I wouldnt call that bad color.  I often find the jpg recompression on these forums are not all that great.

Colours are fine, nice & warm, but I'de assume early morning/late afternoon, great shot.

Re my impressions of the 200-400f/4 versus the 400f/2.8 V2, I'm reasonably certain it will be hard task to convince me that the Canon Version 2 Primes 300f/2.8 & 400f/2.8 aren't better at their respective Ranges than the 200-400, you need to really pull in on the Computer to Pixel Peep, but there's generally a slight extra pin sharpness that comes from the Primes.

But, and it's a big "But", for my preferred Photography, African Wildlife, the 200-400f/4 is just sublime, I absolutely Love this Lens, someone one day will have to prise it from my dead cold fingers to throw me in a hole in the Ground.

What I have been doing though is using the 400f/2.8 on this trip in difficult light conditions, or simply where I just want to totally blow out the background, but I have on this trip the 200-400f/4, 400f/2.8 and the 70-200f/2.8 V2, 75% of my Images will be with the 200-400, maybe 15% with the 70-200 & remaining 10% with the 400, and some of those shot with the 400f/2.8 I could have shot with the 200-400 but wanted to use the 400 to compare.

If I was shooting say Sports, indoor stadium stuff, I would lean towards the 400f/2.8, but for wildlife, anyone that buys the 200-400 I believe will never rue the decision.

I'm shooting Polar Bear for 3 weeks around the North of Svalbard in August, I'll only take two Lenses, 200-400f/4 & the 600f/4 Version 2 with a 1.4x Converter for the 600.

Hi Sporgon, yes, Im impressed with the Lens at f/4 (400) & f/5.6 (560), the majority of my Shots were on this trip at those ranges and f stop, the Bokeh I felt was as good as the 400f/2.8 V2 Lens at the same ranges and f/stops, the advantage with the 400f/2.8 of course was low light, dawn & dusk lower ISO larger f/stop. But for wildlife I will likely leave the 400f/2.8 Home in future, take the 300f/2.8 when I feel I may need Low Light f/2.8 & the sheer versatility of the 200-400 will outweigh the loss of a wider f/stop.

Hi Gary, Thanks, and I must say I was impressed with the 200-400, but at 12k I was likely going to feed myself to the Cheetahs if I wasn't. I did take the 400f/2.8 and did quite a bit of comparison shooting, at 400f/4 & 400f/5.6 I'm really not able to see any difference in sharpness or Bokeh, But, I would say the 400f/2.8 is slightly quicker to lock on Focus, which makes sense when you consider the 400f/2.8 is viewing during Focus @ f/2.8 where the 200-400f/4 is viewing @ f/4 or f/5.6. The 200-400 will certainly be my main Lens in any future trips, the sheer versatility cant be beaten, but, I do like the low light ability of that f/2.8

This Image gives some idea of the Bokeh difference between the 200-400f/4 and the 400f/2.8 @ f/2.8.

I must say I prefer the 200-400f/4 @ f/4 and f/5.6 as well as the 400f/2.8 @ f/4 & f/5.6.

The f/2.8 Bokeh to me seems too washed out, no slight detail at all, perhaps in some situations that's preferred, but I tend to like just a little detail in the background.

Hi RPT, Almost all my 200-400 shots are from a Bean Bag attached to a Manfroto Clamp, I did also have my Wimberley attached to my RRS Safari Monopod Bracket, but used it very little on this trip.

Perhaps 15% of my 200-400 shots were Hand Held, I found Hand Holding the Lens about the same as the 400f/2.8, it can be done for short periods, but it gets Old pretty quickly and I consider myself pretty Fit and I'm big in the Arms, the Wrists start to go first though, shooting from the beanbag seemed to work well, I had one attached each side of the Front Row of the seat, with the Monopod/Wimberley set up in the Middle. I always Safari with my own dedicated vehicle & Guide so front row always, my Son takes the 2nd Row and there's no fighting, much. A fate worse than Death would be sharing a Vehicle on Safari, I got offered a trip recently to Mala Mala & share with 2 Russian Lesbians, Potential entertainment factor was high, but I was pretty sure they could whip my arse and put me in the back seat, so I passed.

Ahhhh, Iceland, bit of a story there.

When we were boarding in Dar Es Salam Tanzania for South Africa, on South African Airways (Be aware, be very aware), the "Stewardess from Hell"  forcibly removed my Carry On Hard Case with my 2 x 5DMKIII & TSE17/TSE24, 8-15 & 24-70, at the Door, under complaint etc etc (11 Kilos instead of 8 Kilos (Her Guess), but it could have been black case instead of white case, who knows). They tagged the Case and of course it was the only Bag of that Flight that didn't make it to JoBurg, fortunately my Son was carrying the Guru Bag with the Long Lenses & 1Dx bodies (He's a Big Sherpa), they ignored that one, they particularly like Hard Cases in Africa, clearly expensive gear inside, and all of this Flying SAA Business Class, I think that's a euphemism for "Marked with a Laser Light for further action".

My Local Operator threatened Police Action, generally wrote Vicious Letters to SAA etc, made a Police Report, I had my Lawyer in Singapore threaten SAA with Legal Action (Waste of Time, but you gotta do it), 3 days before I was to leave South Africa, no WA gear, How do you Photograph Iceland with out Wide Angle, I cancelled all the Iceland Schedule, waste of time with a 200-400 & 400.

Then the day we were getting ready to leave our last Camp to head to JoBurg, my gear turned up, apparently SAA had just had the gear "Handed In" by persons unknown, location Dar Es Salam, so I picked it up on the way out in JoBurg.

It was covered all by Insurance, but the cancellation costs of Iceland weren't so that cost me 10k, still, it was 12k in Gear I was Happy to get back, lesson learnt, don't argue with a "Stewardess from Hell" disguised as a Lady, and don't carry Expensive Camera Gear in Hard Cases in Africa, it apparently has a 30% chance of being "Lost", and don't ever check in Camera gear (I don't, ever), and if the "Stewardess from Hell" wants your gear at the Door, have her refuse you boarding, that way it makes them re think as they would then need to delay the flight while they unload all your check in Bags. The problem with SAA is they wont let you Book an extra Seat as "Mr Gear", other airlines will, still it sort of ended Ok.

Heading to Svalbard with my eldest Lad mid August, shooting Polar Bear, I hope, 3 weeks on a small Freighter called the MV Stockholm.
