the image stabilization works great for doing hand held shots like this

It's been a while since I've posted a cat photo...but this one came out nice - 1D X + 50L - f/2.8 1/160s @ ISO 16,000 + DxO PRIME.

Wow, looks great, especially considering it was taken at iso 16000!

a couple from killarney provincial park

Aha! I think I know that place from a friend that use to shoot a lot in that neighbourhood. Could be because she lives nearby. :)
I'm guessing you enjoyed shooting there - those are lovely photos.

thanks, she is lucky to live close by such a beautiful place. maybe i can go back again soon when the leaves are changing, any picture with the bow of a canoe in it is a pleasure to take!

Mt. Rainier. Wind was the main killer of image sharpness. IS helps a great deal without a tripod.

that's a nice photo of a beautiful place. i don't normally take a dslr on backcountry trips but i am taking this lens and a 6d for a canoe trip into killarney provincial park for a few days. hopefully i will get some good photos along the way.

i have always really liked this lens, originally i got it for doing full panoramas. its really sharp and has good color and contrast. its more useful with today's software tools like dxo than it used to be. poor fisheye gets left out of all the best ultrawide talks but i think it deserves an honorable mention.

i really like the basilica photo. the colors are a lot different in the downloaded version compared to what appears on the web here?

the lines and perspective are nice and straight. it looks like you made a software correction? i don't know how much framing you lose by doing that but it looks great. maybe you will be using your tilt shift lens now?

I returned to an old favorite place this morning called South Swamp, almost 3 years to the day of my last visit and I'm happy with the results:

That's a great shot, looks  menacing.

What are you planning on shooting mostly? Cityscapes or street? Makes a big difference.

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D replacement: What is a "fine-detail" sensor
« on: August 27, 2014, 09:44:08 PM »
It means that it is not a coarse detail sensor, like my apple Quicktake with 320x240 pixels of 8 bit colour.

(I suggest that anyone complaining about Canon sensors go back to that technology)
from wikipedia

The Apple QuickTake (codenamed Venus, Mars, Neptune)

Time Magazine profiled QuickTake as ‘the first consumer digital camera’ and ranked it among its ’100 greatest and most influential gadgets from 1923 to the present' list

we've come a long way in 20 years

Technical Support / Re: DPP "transfer to photoshop"
« on: August 27, 2014, 09:21:15 PM »
Hmmmm, seems you are right. I have used that feature in the past but had both the 32 and 64 bit versions of cs6 installed at the time. I recently had to reformat and I just have the 64 bit version installed. I just tried it and get the same error. There is no option in preferences to point dpp to the correct Photoshop.exe?

I would wait til the 7dii comes out, Avoid the 2x converters. The thing about them is that you have to stop down one stop and then your at f/8 the 1.4xiii will work really well with your 70-200 and you can shoot f/4. I have the sigma 120-300 sport. On a crop body it gets you the equivelant of 192- 480 and its  2.8. It works great with the canon 1.4xiii.
