Has anyone here used a B+W ND1000 Filter on a 5D MKIII and knows the correct white balance setting to avoid the red shift of this filter which it usually produces on daytime long exposures?

Any one here having tested both the new 300mm F2.8 L IS II and the new Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 AF APO EX DG OS HSM and having an opinion on how these two said lenses compare in sharpness and general (real world) usability ... Some reviews Rate the sigma as sharper as the Canon 70-200mm F2.8 IS II so it should be really sharp ...

Lenses / 300mm f2.8 II vs 200-400mm f4.0 TC1.4 your opinion
« on: September 30, 2011, 01:52:36 PM »
For a choice of a medium to long Supertelephoto lenses which of the two options do you thing makes more sense ?

The upcoming 200-400mm f4.0-5.6 TC1.4x Lens

or the

Combination of 300mm f2.8 L II and TC 1.4 III + TC 2.0 III which gives the three distinctive focal length of 300mm f2.8 : 420mm f4.0 and 600mm f5.6

Also think about issues like weight, transportability, handling etc ...

Lenses / Nodal Point on non extending Zoom Lenses
« on: September 29, 2011, 12:02:03 PM »
A short question about the Nodal Point of non extending zooms:

For (non-extending) zoom lenses like the Canon 17-40mm f4.0 L or 70-200mm f2.8 IS II L do you know if the nodal point shifts when zooming, or is that dependable from each lens's construction and cannot be generalized.

Just asking cause I don't see any shift on the 70-200mm right now, but maybe I was not precise enough yet when testing on the nodal rail.     

Thanks for your answers

Since I had the chance to see the 9-11 Memorial in New York City at its first public opening day on 9-12-2011 I will share here several of my shots taken that day. I will add here whenever I post more of them on flickr...

You are free to comment or also post your pictures if you also visited the memorial.

Canon General / d5 MkII exposure problem ?
« on: August 21, 2011, 03:34:16 AM »
Hi I was doing some HDR brackets and I got a whole bunch of pictures that looked like the picture in the attachment, with a large black part in the lower third. 

For these pictures I used a Sigma 12-24mm HSM II lens shot at 12mm and f16 so the resulting pictures are very wide from the angle of view and I took them with the camera being on a tripod about 2ft above the water.

Where does the black part in the lower part of the picture come from. Is it a problem of the lens, the metering or the positioning of the camera or sth. else ?

Would be thankful for any advice as I have a whole bunch of pictures that look like this ...

All kinds of Halls, Churches, Museum, Mosques, Temples and other large enclosed places are found in the urban environment ... Show us your best pictures here: :-)

Have Fun everyone and I look forward to see many great shots of you soon.

To show you some examples I will start with some of mine.

Black & White / Your best Architectural & City B&W shots?
« on: July 18, 2011, 07:21:00 AM »
In contrast to the very colorful pictures we see here most of the time, I would like you to show your best B&W city and architectural shots. (true B&W which means made in the cam, monochromes and reworked B&Ws all welcome) 

I think this is a quite nice way for people to see an entirely different style of photography which emphasis more the pure form and shows a very different capability of the cameras and lens used when compared to color photos.

Please keep size and number of your postings reasonable and I hope everyone will enjoy this.

Here are my first entries and I hope to see many more spectacular pictures of you soon :-)

Animal Kingdom / Show your Bird Portraits
« on: July 16, 2011, 04:22:29 PM »
Post your Bird Portraits here :-)

Parrots, Birds of Prey, Herons and all the others ... Just post your portraits here :-)

The main idea of this topic is that the bird is clearly the main part component of the picture and that it is not a bird in flight or small bird on large tree or group shot ...

I will start with some of mine to start the whole :-)
Have fun everyone and I hope to see many amazing shots soon:

Landscape / Water Reflections
« on: July 16, 2011, 04:07:21 PM »
Please post your reflective pictures of liquid reflections in a natural setting here :-)

Entries could be ocean/shorelines, rivers/creeks, lakes, ice, air ... no matter where ... only that there should not be manmade structures in the main focus of the picture or artificial reflections on glass, chrome, steel etc ...

To give you an idea I will start this with some of mine and hope you will soon add more :-)
