Lenses / Re: Bought 24-70 f/2.8 II -Soft, owners, please advice
« on: August 27, 2013, 02:14:52 PM »
If you have a flash, you can avoid a slow shutter by shooting with flash.  Also, if you were near MFD the 24-70 II isn't at it's best when focusing close.

+1.  If your 24-70 II doesn't beat the 50 f/1.8 at f/2.8 in good light then something is wrong.

Just because the 50 1.8 is cheap doesn't mean it isn't good. from f/2.8 and on the 50 1.8 and 2.8 are fully L-level of sharpness (or better, better than 24-105L for instance).

... unless you consider also the colors and bokeh then it's not L quality

In all of my experience I've never had a camera with an anti-aliasing filter and any lens produce a perfectly sharp image at 100% with no post.

Sharpening images is an art and if every picture came out of a camera perfectly sharp then sharpening wouldn't be such a popular topic.

Your choices are sharpen in camera or plan on pp for every image (no matter what lens).

Obviously if you aren't displaying at 100% then it won't matter as much. Granted, stopped down to f/8 or f/11 with a good flash and it'll be pretty darn sharp.

You might consider having sharpening turned on and a little contrast if you plan to shoot jpg and not post process... a little goes a long way.

This image is pretty sharp for the resolution in my opinion after minor post processing. (obviously it destroyed your text though haha)

You don't have a cheap filter on that lens do you??? The pic looks blurry to the point were it doesn't even look like missed focus, it looks like a dirty lens.

PowerShot / Re: Canon PowerShot G16 Announced

no GPS? seriously!  ???

Zactly what I was just wondering... 
Don't want to carry another device to geotag after a WiFi xfer, may as well just shoot the geotagged shot w the tablet.

+1 on the no GPS!!! Why Canon? Why?

I like the pics composition-wise, my only criticism is the harsh contrast and resulting over-saturation. When doing post sometimes you look at a pic for too long and don't notice you may have over done it a bit. I like to adjust the pic then come back later to re-evaluate.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5dmk3 freezes up
« on: April 23, 2013, 01:17:17 PM »
I had that issue with the old firmware only... not the current one.

It could also be a card error or if the lens isn't 100% secure.

PowerShot / Re: SX50 outperforming 5DIII +100-400mm
« on: April 19, 2013, 04:59:32 PM »
Meh, I want to see a comparsion using equivalent focal lengths 210 and 200mm is fine.. but the framing must be exactly the same (subject takes up the same percentage on the sensor). Both images downsampled (never upsampled) to fit here on the site. Any crops (as long as there's no upsampling ) should be fine... ex: 100% on the sx50 and 55% on the 5D mark III (for equivalent sized images.)

other than that it's apples and oranges.

Portrait / Re: First Portrait Shoot!

Instead of fill flash just overexpose a bit... especially with her skin and make sure the ground underneath her or just in front of her is reflecting light onto her. (like a reflector or use an actual reflector). Unless using a softbox a fill flash looks like garbage IMHO.

-Some poses are absolutely not flattering and you can only figure it out by doing it... In one photo she's squatting to go to the bathroom it appears ;)

-In one a single leg is behind her where she looks like an amputee.

-In the picture reposted above her arm is being flattened by something making it appear larger than it really is. Try to minimize this. Girls like looking thin.

-Many of the pictures appear to be taken from a low angle... get to eye level or even above eye level looking down to make her appear a little thinner.

-I don't see any close ups of her face? What does she really look like?

-Many shots appear soft or downright out of focus, make sure that shutter speed is at least double the focal length, lock that focus and hold still. With that 50 all you need to do is sway slightly and your focus is gone. You might consider AI Focus/AI Servo.

Portrait / Re: Ruined photo, or rescue opportunity?
« on: October 11, 2012, 04:13:40 PM »
Not the greatest... I'm assuming the flash that forgot to fire was above your head in order to not create shadows on faces...

Canon General / Re: DxOMark vs. Reality
« on: October 10, 2012, 12:25:42 PM »
Then we go into the "shadows" and there  I select an area and let photoshop with auto contrast calculate pixel values​​, and if there are any banding, noise.This is the difference in the lower level = DR
blah blah

So you're saying if as a photographer I constantly screw up exposure I should get a Nikon? With the 5dMk III if I come anywhere near correct exposure within a few stops (which is a huge range) then I get a great photo with little noise if any. With the Nikon even if I absolutely nail exposure I'll get noise at higher ISOs without changing shadows AT ALL...

Correctly expose your shots in camera and get back to us about noise.

Nice shots...

but maybe your tens of thousands of photos enraged him and made him disgruntled enough to kill. You know you really need to have your setup done before the talent arrives. ;D
