Have a look at the lowepro tactic 450aw, quite a large bag but I should think it suits your need. As long as you take other lenses out too or flashes etc

I just had a quick look on his website and he does shoot sports so possibly he does want the higher frame rate and processing.

If they were RAW images, make sure you have the latest updates to your editing software.  Out of date software may not recognize the 5D MK III RAW files.
Make sure you download the latest Camera RAW Version.  Ver 7.4 is the latest for CS6

Thank you, it has worked. Turns out i hadn't updated it because i hadn't needed to until now.

Thanks again

Lenses / CF card error, pictures possibly corrupt.
« on: May 28, 2013, 04:56:06 PM »
Hi all,

I recently was at a family friends house and I got the chance to use their 5D Mark III, but as they didn't have any CF cards I used my own. I had one that had some pictures on it that I still wanted so I didn't format the card when I put it in the Mark III. All my pictures I had taken on my 7D work perfectly but the pictures taken on the 5D do not open on my laptop using Bridge CS6 and PS CS6. When I put the card in my 7D the pictures from the 5D show up on there with all the EXIF data intact.

Does anyone know of a way of viewing and using the photos taken on the 5D. I would really like to have them as its not often I get to use one.

Many Thanks


Lenses / Re: first trip to England any recommendations ?
« on: March 03, 2013, 08:10:59 AM »

Hi, Im going on my first trip to England in just over a month and i want to take photos of castles and buildings so i'm taking my 5D mark iii and as far as lenses go I'm thinking i will take my 24-70L ii and 70-200 Lis ii but i want to get a wider lens, so I'm thinking i might go the 17mm tse.

Does anyone  have any recommendations on this lens?

Hi Creek, do you have destinations in mind yet? I'm presuming London/Edinburgh...but do you need suggestions for things slightly more out of the way? (How long are you here-& are you driving? There are some great things to see that are more out of the way, if you're not so bound to public transport).

I agree with the 17 tse. In the cities, a lot of the buildings don't quite have the room around to stand back too'll do a lot of looking UP at them, so tse is definitely a plan.
Otherwise, yes the two zooms are perfect. Just be prepared to up the iso at the moment (if you're handholding rather than tripod)...the weather is very overcast a good chunk of the time, and I can't see that changing too much in a month.

Down in Cornwall we've had some lovely weather for quite a while, it's been very cold but lovely light. Spring in the south west is quite often the best time of year weather wise.

Site Information / Re: Images not showing - Broken image icon

Haven't seen this issue.  Perhaps also try clearing your cache. If an image fails to load once, your browser may log that and just display the broken image every subsequent time, even though the image may be able to load at that point. Do note that Vimeo videos do not display within the threads.

Thanks Neuro, I cleared the cache and it seemed to have worked for 90%, a few on some threads do not load still but I can live with that. Thanks

My guess is that you are behind a firewall that restricts access to certain sites.  Businesses like to restrict access to bandwidth-hungry sites such as photo and video sites.  Are you on a computer at work?

No its my home network, I'll see if i can find a way of unlocking the firewall, see if that helps

Site Information / Images not showing - Broken image icon
« on: January 21, 2013, 07:33:53 AM »

Most of the images that are posted on the forums I can't see, it shows a broken image icon. I have tried different browsers on my laptop with no success as well as trying different computers. Some images do load but most of them I cannot see and I would like to see them.

If anyone knows of a way to fix this problem then let me know. Does anyone else have this problem? I did search the forums to see if a thread had already been created but couldn't find one and also when reading posts in forums I don't see people mentioning that they cannot see the images and that they do not load.


Third Party Manufacturers / Re: 4K 15 FPS
« on: November 29, 2012, 04:24:29 PM »
I just did a quick search on youtube, this is 4k at 12fps downscaled to 1080p

thanks for the link, but wow that looks horrid, not just the fisheye effect but it really does look choppy (esp the beginning with cars going across the screen).
It might have some 'artistic' uses, like a lensbaby, pinhole, or expired film, if you're into that. But i wouldn't buy one expecting it to be any good.

The choppyness is a problem, but because the frame rates are customisable it is more suited to timelapses etc where you then conform the video to playback at a smooth frame rate. The 2.7k setting is very nice, I just wish i was getting one. Also the 720p at 120fps is a very good feature allowing really good slo mo, would be worth it for that as well as the versatility and size of the camera

is 15 fps in 4K worth anything? or will it be all choppy?
looking at the gopro3 and thats the top resolution for video.
i am just thinking cropping that down to 1080P would get rid of some of the fish eye factor that these cameras display.
the other option is 2.7K at 30 fps.

I just did a quick search on youtube, this is 4k at 12fps downscaled to 1080p GoPro Hero 3 Black 4K Driving Test 12fps converted via Cine Form    The quality is good although the 2.7k is more usable. But I am pretty sure the gopro has different field of view settings so you can change it to get less of a fish eye effect.
