EOS Bodies - For Stills / Vertical curtain velocity
« on: December 17, 2014, 04:58:13 AM »
I was thinkig about real velocity of shutter curtain. I guess that vertial curtain velocity does not change and changes just timing of second curtain release. It means that slot between curtains travels at constant speed, but width of slot depends on shutter speed set up. The amount of light reaching the sensor is the same as shutter would have been fully opened for a very short time, e. g. 1/8000 s. Are my thoughts correct? If yes, how fast the curtain could travel?

« on: December 06, 2014, 06:23:20 AM »
My contribution to this thread. I never thought the IS would be so effective.
Exp. data:
Time: f35 mm, 1/3 s, F16, 5D MkIII, ISO 100, handheld.
Sheraton: f16, 1s(!), F8, 5D MkIII, ISO 800, handheld.

Lighting / Re: Yongnuo YN600EX-RT at Photokina?
« on: October 21, 2014, 05:51:40 AM »
Hi Hardwire,
I visited their booth at Photokina and had a chance to try 35 f/2 and 50 f/1.8 lenses. At first I was thinking they are showing Canon lenses – appearance was obvious. Many visitors including me were asking for the availability and price of a new flash. We were told that the price will be very surprising (understand low) and the availability by the end of the year.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: LP-E6N Backwards Compatible
« on: October 17, 2014, 05:12:01 PM »
I asked the same question at Photokina fair in Germany last month and was told it is backwards compatible. Anyway, advertised higher capacity is negligible in my opinion (1850 vs 1800 mAh) and not worth the money.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Battery recharge performance
« on: October 17, 2014, 10:30:18 AM »
 I have the LP-E6 battery being manufactured in 2010. Recharge performance indicator shows one red square only, so according user manual I should consider buying a new one. However, I didn`t notice the battery has lower capacity in comparison with another one produced in 2012. Therefore I wonder what parameter camera evaluates for recharge performance. Isn`t it simple "planned obsolescence"?.

Lenses / Re: 16-35 f/4 IS for infrared?
« on: May 24, 2014, 06:44:38 PM »
I wonder too. It prevents me to sell the 17-40 and to order the 16-35 f/4 IS. I am very impatient and curious :-)

The 17-40L worked fine for infraphotography. I wonder, how the 16-35 f/4L IS will behave. In general, lenses with IS are more prone to hot spot. What do you think?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5DMkIII wallpaper?
« on: December 08, 2013, 03:11:37 AM »
Hello, I am looking for a desktop wallpaper showing the 5DMk III as a main subject. I googled some of them, but I'm not fully satisfied yet. I would prefer a low key picture allowing distinct display of icons. Could anyone share? Many thanks in advance!

I was wondering how my camera would cope with moving children as a subject. It succeeded :-) Could you help me to entitle the first one snap?

Software & Accessories / Writing keywords from jpg to raw file
« on: September 06, 2013, 05:23:27 AM »
I shoot jpg+raw (crw, cr2) and in the past I incontinently tagged with keywords only all of my jpg files. Now I would like to write the keywords also to the raw files. I can't imagine doing it manually. Is there any automated way how to do it, i. e. read the keywords from jpg EXIF and write it to raw exif? I tried to find some application, but haven't succeeded yet. Many thanks for any hint in advance.

Technical Support / Re: Canon 5D3 at airshow
« on: August 13, 2013, 04:05:02 PM »
Being at the air show the first time, I wanted to try this kind of photo genre. The longest focal length I had available was 200 mm, which is on FF in my opinion too short. Anyway, I attach some of my first attempts :-)

EOS Bodies / How to delete raw and jpg files simultaneously?
« on: July 20, 2013, 12:53:51 PM »
I tried to set up my 5D3 in order to write raw files on CF card and jpgs on SD. The playback was set on SD card. When I delete picture, the only jpg file from the SD card is deleted, raw file stays untouched on the CF. How to arrange to delete both, raw and jpg files simulaneously?

Lenses / EF 24-70 II + Cokin P
« on: May 30, 2013, 05:04:14 PM »
I have Cokin P filter system with wide angle filter holder (one filter slot only). Is this holder going to vignette at wide end of EF 24-70 II?
