Sports / Baltimore Grand Prix Question
« on: August 22, 2012, 12:22:47 PM »
Did anyone on the forums attend last year?  I can't find anything on the website about camera restrictions and I'm curious if I'm going to get turned away if I show up with a 5D and 70-200 2.8. 

Thanks in advance!

Lenses / Italy Trip Lens Advice - wide angle
« on: May 30, 2012, 03:21:23 PM »
I will be taking my first trip to Italy late this summer and will be visiting  Rome, Florance, Chique Terre, and Venice.  I'm hoping to pack light and will be traveling with my 5Diii and 24-105L at a minimum.  I'm looking for some advice on a wide angle lens choice for the trip.

I would like to be able to capture good pics inside churches and in the small to large squares as well as the grand vistas like inside the coliseum.  I will not be traveling with a tripod so that will make panos much more difficult. 

I currently have the Canon 16-35L ii but I'm curious if this is the right choice.  I've been eyeing the sigma 15mm fisheye for some time and thought that this might be a better choice? 

My experience with the 16-35 with indoor and architecture shots is that perspective usually causes slanted walls and other distractions.  Would I really be much worse off with a fisheye?

Thanks in advance for the advice!

EOS Bodies / 5D mk III Rate Button and Android
« on: April 26, 2012, 03:27:37 PM »
Does anyone have knowledge of an Android photo slideshow (or organization) app that will recognize photos that have been "rated" by the 5D III? 

Here is the scenario...  Shooting weddings/events, I would like to be able to hit the rate button on the 5D to identify a limited number of good shots taken during the early parts of event.  At the reception, I would like to take the microSD card (in an adapter and recording JPEGs) out of the camera, insert it into my Transformer Prime Android tablet and quickly call up just those rated photos into a slideshow program to be displayed on the tablet for guests.  I have accomplished this in the past but it has required a laptop in the middle to sort the photos and write to a microSD card.  I would like to make this a seamless and quick move which should be able to be accomplished with the GREAT addition of the dual card slots! 

I see a couple of ways to do this where the android photo app could read the rating and automatically sort the photos for view.  Another option would be an Android file browser that could recognize the rating and I could copy the files from the microSD card that have ratings to the tablet or a different directory and play from there. 

Does anyone have experience trying to do this? 

Thanks in advance!

EOS Bodies / 5diii problem with touch wheel
« on: March 30, 2012, 12:55:38 PM »
I'm hoping that I'm just doing something wrong but I can't get the touch sensitive wheel to work in video mode. Silent control is turned on and I have tried in M and Av modes while recording video. I've tried touching every part of the wheel but nothing is changing. I'm really thinking there is a problem with the camera and wanted to see is anyone on here has any ideas????
