Speedlites, Printers, Accessories / Card Failure: Lexar CF 32GB 1000x
« on: April 28, 2014, 03:59:46 PM »
About 2 weeks ago after a long shoot, my second shooter had a complete failure of a Lexar 32GB 1000x CF Card. The card had completely normal handling and had been used numerous times before without incident. For whatever reason, the controller chip on the card failed, which prevents all access to the card data. I found a company that specializes in "off-chip" data recovery where they pull the chips off and hook up to a NAND reader to pull the data. Unfortunately, this card is using a brand new chip for which no one seems to have the right socket to do this type of recovery. Has anyone else needed to do an off-chip recovery of this card? If so, I would REALLY appreciate knowing what company did it.

This isn't a request for recovery methods or software's a full hardware failure which requires specific equipment to read.


EOS Bodies / Moire in the 1DX and 5D3
« on: June 12, 2013, 01:51:23 AM »
I shot a wedding last weekend and the grooms' suits are showing up with a crazy amount of moire that I haven't seen before.  I was shooting a 1DX and 5D3 with a 24-40 f/2.8II and a 70-200 f/2.8II with natural light and flash and saw moire in every combination.  Here is a sample with the 1DX and 24-70 with flash.  Any thoughts on avoiding/correcting it?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Blown-out Highligts in Stage Lighting

I have heard people complain about LED lights and excessive blown highlights, but I finally ran into a problem with it this week.  Unfortunately it's on performers' faces.  Here are 2 shots that were perfectly exposed for the subject but pretty much unusable in color because of the blown out faces.  Dropping down the highlights in Lightroom made it look even worse.  Converting to B&W makes it reasonable.

Both pics shot with a 5D3, 70-200 f/2.8II, ISO 3200, 1/100, f4.0, daylight wb.  Straight conversion to jpeg with no other adjustments.
