EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5D mark iii vignetting in RAW
« on: August 12, 2012, 07:14:22 PM »
Am i crazy or do raw photos add a bit of vignetting? I am shooting both jpeg and raw on my mark iii and the raws have this light vignette that gets thrown on for the raw. the images look much better but is that vignette normal? i will try and put a sample up if people dont get what im saying. This is with all the shots so it doesnt have to do with filters on the lens or anything. All different zoom lenghts and lenses. I am just dragging the raw files off my SD card to my desktop then importing them into aperture 3.3.2

Lighting / First Time Flash Test
« on: August 08, 2012, 09:40:10 PM »
Hey all im renting the 600 EXRT for some group family shots this weekend so tested it out on my dog. this is all just on camera trying to bounce it different ways. Any tips would be great i really dont have much idea what i am doing. i have the 5d Mark iii. Also why would there not be a built in transmitter in the mark iii to the 600 ex? technology is definitely there to have the flash off the camera and release it without having to buy a $150 transmitter.

Lighting / 430ex ii with 5d mark iii
« on: July 13, 2012, 12:10:21 PM »
i have 175$ credit at crutch field burning a hole in my pocket. figured why not get a flash? would the 430ex ii be a suitable flash for a somewhat beginner photographer in the flash game? I will be using it basically for recreational purposes. all around photo stuff. also can the flash stay lit up as an external light for video? is this recommended?

« on: July 11, 2012, 10:34:33 PM »
I havent seen this until today? seems like an insane amount of noise happening. when i bump up the ISO it goes away a bit but thats because the image gets lighter. im shooting at iso 125 here. f4 1/50

the youtube gets loaded as super dark so here is the youtube video but also a screen grab from quicktime

Noise canon 5d Mark iii vertical lines

tried attaching the photo

Canon 5d Mark iii 1080p normal compression 24fps it showed up with both 24-105 and 16-35mm lenses.

Lenses / Lens out of stock
« on: May 03, 2012, 06:49:14 PM »
I attempted to purchase the 50 1.2 and the 70-200 is ii from crutchfield but they are both out of stock! (they were in stock a couple weeks ago) ton of people must be taking advantage of the rebates. does anyone know how fast lens stock gets replenished? i assume its quicker than a new camera because canon probably has stock sitting around.

EOS Bodies - For Video / Can anyone figure this out?

Liberation Begins - 5DMK3 OLPF Removal Day 2 on Vimeo

I love the look of this video. the video is basically focusing on the fact that he removed a filter within the 5d mark iii. but im trying to figure out what color correction/or lens or what he was using to achieve that look. It seems people have asked in the comments section but the uploader doesn't seem to respond. I feel like this look is possible to be achieved without removing this filter. if anyone can give some insight that would be awesome.

Lenses / Am I equipped to rip?
« on: April 29, 2012, 11:00:02 AM »
So I'm trying to round out a good artillery of lens for all around use. I have the 16-35 2.8 ii and I am about to purchase the 50mm 1.2L and 70-200 2.8 is ii with the lens rebate. Does everyone think that's an all around good set of three lens? I shoot a lot of video and all around general photo

Lenses / Bad time to sell my 24-105?
« on: March 20, 2012, 11:16:27 PM »
I am trying to sell my 24-105 L IS but it seems the market is super flooded with them right now? Will I be able to sell a used in great condition for 800? Saw one on eBay that didn't go for 825. Maybe I should hold off until 5D hooplah calms down?  And if anyone wants it PM me for sure!

EOS Bodies / 5d markiii officially wont use SDHC UHS-1?
« on: March 15, 2012, 09:57:33 PM »
with the release of the manual it seems that the 5d wont be compatible with UHS-1 SD cards? like this


doesnt make much sense. could it be compatible in the future with firmware? i guess it can only go up to 30 mbps instead of 95

EOS Bodies / Profit to be made on mark iii?
« on: March 11, 2012, 06:13:33 PM »
So i preordered pretty early (12:40 est from B&H) and the camera is 3500. no tax or shipping cost. i just dont know if its the best idea for me to be spending all that money right now. if i get it in the first shipment do you think there is money to be made on ebay? wouldnt it be cheaper for europeans to buy from me for 4000 usd or something? im not a scammer i just wonder if i can make some money for a lens due to canons international pricing policies/availability of product

Lenses / I'm in a lens pickle
« on: March 06, 2012, 07:12:12 PM »
So I have my 5d mark iii on pre-order and i also threw a 16-35L 2.8 onto the order. I already have a 24-105L 4is from my mark ii purchase in 2008. I am looking to spend $2000 on lenses for the new camera so do i return the 16-35? sell the 24-105? keep them both? i guess if i sold the 24-105 i would have $2800 to work with on building my glass artillery. I am basically just an all around photographer who does a significant amount of video work as well. would prefer to stick with canon L lenses. any advice would be great!
