;D  ;D  ;D The only comparison that would be hard for me is Warner Bros vs Disney (Looney Tunes vs. Mickey, Donald, etc) ;D  ;D  ;D
Why so hard? Mickey is better/smarter then Donald ;D ;D ;D
They are both Disney so no comparison! The comparison I mentioned was Warner Bros vs Disney!


Warner Bros hands down! I'll take that wascally wabbit and Wile E. Coyote over any disney character any day of the week.

A migratory raptor to my area from November to late April and a very hard raptor to capture! Anyone here having any luck capturing these raptors?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Anyone Mind Another 70D vs 6D Question?
« on: November 22, 2013, 11:48:03 AM »
6D - not too different for AF, much better high ISO performance

70D - better AF, not too different high ISO performance (assuming you shoot RAW)

5DIII - much better AF, much better high ISO performance, much more expensive…

Given that the T1i Af meets your needs, I'd say the 6D is the better choice if the 5DIII is out of budget.


I have a question about the image noise in the 6d and 5d mark iii. Most of the reviews state that the 6d has better high iso range than the 5d mark iii. In another thread here a member stated that the difference is not as big as most reviews show due to the 5d mark iii not being in the same settings as the 6d.

My question is what settings on a 5d mark iii  in raw or jpeg would make such a 1 to 2 stop difference in high iso compared to a 6d?

Here's the link to one such review that shows the differences at high iso. There is another one that actually shows a night photo of a building taken at the same iso that shows a big difference as well. Don't remember what website that was though.

Clouds at sunset. What do you see?

A lady kissing a frog?
A panther taking a bite out of the sun?

Hawk
Canon 60D 100-400

Sparrow
Canon 60D Efs 55-250

Quick question: I use center point focus AI Servo. Going to upgrade to either a 6D or 5D mark III. Would using the same setting on a 6D give the same results as the 60D. Those of you using a 5D mark III what are your settings as for as bird in flight.


Thanks.

Great Blue Heron
Oct 20 - Martha's Vineyard (Chappaquiddick)
60D 100-400 mm
I have a life-time supply of Heron picts, was looking for something different.

I call and raise you two... LOL...
Ha! Ha! Ha! Looks like Chauncey raised you four!

Har..! I am counting Chauncey's spectacular photo as one. So I will match Diablo - except the photos have to be at least 2000 pixels on one edge, because manly men don't crop excessively.  ;)





I raise you three law breaking herons.

One who is clearly jaywalking! And two more that are taxiing down a runway without clearance from the tower!

I had been looking for an owl for a long time. I could hear them all the time in and around my house but could never see them. I took this photo handheld @1/40s at almost nightfall, raised the exposure in lightroom. Not one of my best but yet another bird I can cross off my list!
i have a lot of great horned owls around my house. i see them in the daytime midwinter sometimes but the rest of the year i only see them at, or after dark, i have been trying to get a decent shot of one myself for a few weeks but no luck? they are like cops, never around when you need them?

nice pics,

Thanks

I see them most of the time when I'm going to work in the early mornings. I have to drive very alert where I live because of the population of wildlife mainly deer where I live. I've seen some pretty big owls in my area but of course its always when I don't have a camera with me!

I'm currently shooting with a 60D at the moment. The first telephoto lens I purchased was the 50-250. I enjoyed that lens so much I decided to buy another lens of even more reach. I looked at the 300 F4, 100-400, and the 400 F5.6. Being that photography is a hobby for me. I made my decision based soley on photos I could capture vs so-called image quality. From all the research I did the 300 F4 has the best IQ, followed by the 400 F5.6, then the 100-400. Now to be honest there are more than a few SHARP 100-400 floating around out there.  I came across a few photos that were sharper than the 400 F5.6 and the 300 F4.

It just depends on who you talk to and what information you come across the web. Now back to my statement about photos I could capture vs. image quality. I'm into all wildlife, so being able to shoot at 100mm in one second then zoom all the way out to 400mm is really an advantage to me versues being at a fixed prime. Of course I'm not knocking primes and would jump on a used 500mm F4 IS for a good price in a heartbeat, but right now I'm doing more than good with the 100-400.

Being able to zoom out to find a bird, lion, etc, then zoom in to 400mm really comes in handy. But don't take my word for it. Look at these photos of an alligator I walked up on. All photos are not cropped.

Plus you can still zoom with your feet. So if 100mm is too tight move back. If 400mm is still to short move up if you can. Thats what I did with this alligator. I took photos at different distances while zooming.
