Hi Wise Ones
Forgive my ignorance. I'm dipping my toes in the professional waters, having sold a few motorsports images, had some published in car club mags, and had great feedback. I've come to the conclusion that I need to be able to display my work to drivers at the circuit, preferably on the day, to illustrate my point-of-difference. I've been researching tablets, but the reviews I've read don't match my brief:
very good display, even in sunlight, decent disk capacity, reasonable cost, and (the kicker it seems) fast jpg upload from CF (I have a usb3 card reader, so usb3 input would seem logical -wireless is unlikely due to remoteness, even cellphone coverage is patchy).
As you'll have inferred, I'm a total novice with mobile computing.
Can anyone out there advise (preferably from actual experience)?
Thanks in anticipation.

Third Party Manufacturers / BushHawk shoulder mount
« on: December 31, 2013, 11:05:50 PM »
Hi Fellow Canonistas

Happy 2014!
Has anyone on the forum got any experience of the BushHawk shoulder mount? There doesn't seem to be much recent traffic relating to it on any blogs/forums.

As I alluded on another thread, I feel that it should be ideal for tracking fast-moving racing cars at slow shutter speeds. But I have a couple of concerns/queries:
1) What's its maximum load rating (my 1DX/ Sigma 120-300 2.8S weighs almost 12lb in US-speak)?
2) I've seen some mixed reports on the reliability of the shutter release cables/connections - anyone able to confirm/deny?
3) What's their support like? I completed their web query form back in October and got an instant "thanks for your query - we'll get back to you shortly" type response and have heard nothing since. (Have they gone under?)

As a Kiwi, I'm be a long way from any physical support, so need some assurances before committing.

Cheers!
Jim

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Anyone using ISO 50 on 1DX?
« on: October 12, 2013, 09:55:36 PM »
Looking through my motor racing shots at 1/100 - 1/160 Tv (for motion blur) on 1DX, ISO 100, understandably the aperture is frequently >f16. I'm considering trying ISO 50 (ND 105mm filter c$500!). Anyone have any experience of ISO 50 - From what I've read, it's not as noise-free as 100?? Thanks. :-)
