Lenses / Yet another call for travel lens advice
« on: August 13, 2013, 10:14:40 PM »
Hi all
I have read good comments about the Tamron 24-70 and am wondering if anyone has any thoughts on the Tamron 28-300.

I have a 5D_III, Canon 16-35 II, 24-105 and 70-200L 2.8 IS.

I am leaving on a 6 week holiday in Nov from Perth Australia to Venice, then cruising the Med to Turkey & Miami via St Thomas and a few islands then 2 weeks in England.

I am interested in Landscape, old buildings inside & out anything else I see including hopefully the Duxford aircraft museum.

I am worried about the weight of the 24-105 and esp 70-200 so was thinking of just taking the 16-35 for wide angle and buying the Tamron 28-300 as a travelling lens. I have tried the Canon 28-300, great lens but heavy like the 70-200.

I would appreciate your thoughts and advice.


Technical Support / Photographing paintings for a Catalogue help please
« on: February 20, 2013, 02:33:01 AM »
Hi All.
I have been asked by a friend to photograph her paintings for putting into a photo gallery catalogue.

The specs are:
Colour space : RGB
Colour ratio : 24 bit

Either height or width of an image should be more than 2000 pixels.
Image must have a valid ICC profile E.G. sRgb /Adobe Rgb (1998)
Image must have a valid RGB colour space and must be 8/24 bit colour ratio.

Could someone translate this for me into ordinary language please?

I have a 5D III with24-105 L and 70-200 IS 2.8 II lenses ands 430 EXII Flash.

Do I shoot in RAW and then process in something, I'm not aware of the camera producing Tiff's directly?

I have LR 4 and PE11. Can these packages be used to produce the required photos, and what settings would you use for shooting, Flash?

Help please? :-[

Lenses / Advice for shooting House Interior with 5DIII
« on: February 01, 2013, 04:06:46 AM »
I have been asked by my son to shoot the interior of a house he has renovated. The photos will go on a web site and in a brochure book he has printed and sends to prospective clients.

I have a 5D III with a 24-105 & 70-200 2.8 II and a 430EX.

On my last shoot I was having difficulty fitting the rooms in the shot so I may have to hire something wider this time.
Any advice appreciated.


EOS Bodies - For Stills / Adobe RGB or sRGB please?
« on: September 24, 2012, 08:50:40 PM »
I am just starting to get my head around my 5D III after a 60D. I have been to a few photography courses and have LR4.1 and PSE10. I shoot raw & L JPEG. My confusion is that some recommend sRGB however other people recommend Adobe RGB. The 5D III manual recommends sRGB but the LR books are divided. I only shoot for my own enjoyment at this stage but may join a club later when I get a little better. Any thoughts very much appreciated.
