Nice!

Obviously he needs to engage the reverse gear before taking off...

My retina is curved. My eyeballs do not contain multiple elements. IF flat sensors were "simpler" to design for, I am quite disappointed that we have not evolved that superior level yet!

I guess it is time to begin R&D on printing silicon wafers :)

Rodeo action yesterday with the 1dx and 70-200 and 300 2.8.

Full sun at high noon so the light was quite harsh and from straight above, but i did the best i could
Very nice!

This particular image was a bit difficult. Not enough light on the animal, lots of branches in the way and a fairly bright background. Worst problem though is my total lack of competence and knowledge of the post processing techniques/software.

And it is true Edward, I have loads of images from this trip. We shot most of it early in the morning and in the evening (before opening and after closing of the park) and there are lots of tall trees in the park. It was also overcast, so lighting was not that easy.

Here´s a lynx, chewing on a bird he caught (look at his right angle of mouth ;))

Conventional wisdom is that you use Tv mode for action shooting; 'sports mode' (the runner on the mode dial of so-equipped cameras) is based on Tv mode.

I never quite understood this, starting with my first EOS (620) I was annoyed that in pure Tv w/o any scene program gimmicks, the camera goes to wide open asap - *shudder* think 50/1.8. This makes tracking difficult and might result in a too thin dof for the scene. Av with min. shutter speed fixes this problem.

With Magic Lantern, I actually use Tv mode for "walkaround tourist/landscape" as a "as deep dof as possible" mode: Set the shutter time you think is appropriate, rest assured the dof will not drop below a limit you've set, then let the camera choose an even deeper dof if good light allows it.

And Manual fixes all of that... :)

Really?  I read it, but it wasn't obvious.  To what page number are you referring?

 ;D

LOL!
Lol! It took a few seconds but the penny finally dropped ;D

Dear Canon make it 1 TB Free for ALL :)

Dear Canon,

Please don't.

The running costs would have to be met by loading prices on camera equipment. I'm sort of fine with that happening for iPhones etc., because those things have a limited life anyway and it's an ongoing thing to budget for. But I keep my camera equipment for decades.

BTW, it's Sunday evening on a holiday weekend here in Australia, and the Australia and NZ site is "currently undergoing testing and maintenance" by gurus. (For those who don't know, a "guru" is an expert on Unix and open source software. Generally they come with beards.)
Same here and I am logging on from India. So may be their Geography is not too good - apart from other things... ;)

A hawk family lives around my house and he often comes to the trees in and around the garden. Yesterday he was  eating a garden lizard and screaming at the top of his lungs. I guess he thought that it was tasty! Take a look. Personally, I'd pass ;)

Shot with 5D3 firmware 1.2.3 with Magic Lantern http://www.magiclantern.fm/. I have been shooting with Dual ISO turned on and it gives me good results! Take a look at the thread http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7139.0 that describes the feature, and the thread http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7402.0 where you can see pictures taken with dual ISO.

The first one was shot with a 100-200L @200mm, ISO 100/1600, F/8, 1/250
The second one was shot with a 100-400L @400mm with a 1.4x so @560mm, ISO 400/6400, F/8, 1/200
I left the exif on so you can see but imgur.com kills it :(.

I was shooting against the light. The sun is a little to the left of the bird.

I shoot I'm M mode with auto ISO. I am usually at the longest end of my lenses when not shooting humans :) so fixing the shutter speed is not an issue. I think my shots usually come out ok.
