Business of Photography/Videography / Photos used without permission
« on: August 06, 2014, 01:47:16 PM »
It's recently come to my attention that a business in my area has taken one of my photos from an editorial piece, printed an unknown number of tickets with my photo and is selling them for a fundraiser. This was done without my knowledge and/or consent.

This is a photo I took, not a photo of me. :) I do not have releases from the individuals in the photos. I have no idea if the business got them, but I sincerely doubt they did.

I don't have a lot of money to hire an attorney, but on the other hand I don't want to let the business get away with this.

I would like to be compensated for the use of my photo but at minimum would like them to stop this practice.

If anyone here can provide advice or links to articles on how I should proceed, I would appreciate it.


Lenses / Canon EF 1.4x II vs EF 1.4x III
« on: July 12, 2014, 09:09:04 PM »
Can anyone here provide photographic comparisons between the Canon EF 1.4x II and EF 1.4x III that actually show the EF 1.4x III is really as sharp or possibly better that the EF 1.4x II?

I see all sorts of claims that say the 1.4x III is slightly sharper and has higher contrast, but I have yet to see a photographic comparison that actually proves that.

I looked at the comparisons between these two teleconverters on the digital picture for both the 200mm f2 and the 70-200 f2.8 IS II at 200mm. In both cases I believe the 1.4x II is actually sharper and higher contrast, regardless of the conclusions they drew.

I already have a 1.4x II but am considering a second 1.4x teleconverter, since I frequently carry two or three bodies. I was leaning to the 1.4x III, but I have yet to see any comparison or claims from Canon that would convince me to spend the extra money.

Software & Accessories / DPP 4. Is anyone else having this issue?

Has anyone else here run into this issue with DPP 4 (See attached image)? This doesn't happen with DPP 3 or any other software that I have used.

I have two monitors. In DPP 4, the colors are messed up on my primary monitor, but when I drag to the secondary monitor they look good. Both monitors are color corrected using an iProfiler1.

The left image is on my primary monitor and the right image is how it appears, when I drag the same window to my secondary monitory.

Lenses / Reverse teleconverter

I shoot Canon, both APS-C and Full Frame and consider them complimentary to each other. The recent rumors about a possible 7D upgrade have got me wondering...

Why doesn't someone create a reverse teleconverter? Something that you can put between your Canon EF lenses and an APS-C body. It could be something like a -1.6X or whatever. Since this would squeeze all of the light from the full frame image into a space the size of an APS-C sensor, I'm assuming you would gain approximately one stop plus of light. You would also have the advantage of having the same FOV on an APS-C body as you have on a full frame body and I'm assuming the same DOF.

If someone were to build this and it actually worked as described, I can see a huge market for it.

Is something like this possible? Am I nuts (don't answer this)? What do you think?
