EOS Bodies / Don't understand why
« on: February 12, 2015, 06:59:13 AM »
After reading that interview were it was stated that they had difficulty in squeezing everything
into the new 5Ds...what possible rationale was it not made into a larger 1Ds series?      ;)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Now it's digestion time on new 5Ds
« on: February 07, 2015, 08:00:07 AM »
Back when I bought the 1Ds3, I wanted a camera that could do all that I might want to do.
 I didn't want my gear to hold me back from trying anything, from BIF to has served me well.

 That was then, when I was younger and more able to be out and, age is catching up
 and am more likely to shoot indoors and, am more prone to consider "need" as opposed to "want".
 The improved versatility doesn't seem to be as important as it once was. That ole camera has the
 feel of that ole pair of slippers that sure do feel comfortable when lounging around.

 Regardless, I read this morning that availability is June...lots of time to change my mind.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Expect what with 5DS R
« on: February 05, 2015, 07:40:49 AM »
I currently use a 1Ds3 and will be buying the 5DS R for my studio floral stuff and some
landscape, a avid PS CC user.

When I open an image on my monitor, am I going to notice a difference in overall IQ with
this new body or is that image merely going to be larger in size?

PS, when might I be able to download a manual before the purchase?

EOS Bodies / Aah...Ds series
« on: February 03, 2015, 12:17:25 PM »
There's a whole lotta hype about the new 5D and its 50 MP but...what about a new Ds body.
My 1Ds 3 is somewhat dated and am not wanting to buy a 5D if a Ds is in the pipeline.      :-\

Macro / Glycerin Drop

C&C for your consideration...

Macro / Another pink orchid set
« on: January 02, 2015, 06:48:17 AM »
The last one was pretty well panned so I altered the lighting just a bit...what say you all?      ;)

Macro / Menage a trois
« on: December 29, 2014, 02:15:05 PM »
You might not call it macro but...there are 375 images that were stacked and merged...6' wide!      ;)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Switch from Ds3 to 7d Mk2
« on: August 18, 2014, 07:42:23 AM »
My only lens for macro is a 180mm which manages to cough out superior images in spite of my ineptitude.
What would be the results if I were to use that lens on a new 7D Mk2?
Things like...minimum focusing distance, increased magnification due to smaller field of view, and whatnot.

Business of Photography/Videography / Why Photography
« on: July 13, 2014, 07:44:29 AM »
I got into this ridiculous hobby post retirement.  It is a self-satisfying way to pass the time as it keeps me off the streets and outta the bars, but, if someone approached me about making a career from photography...I would be forced to slap them up-side the head.

Aside from the occasionally successful wedding and fashion photog...who is gonna buy your stuff.
Besides the local hotel that hosts local photography and the traveling art shows that caters to folks with some disposable doesn't sell. 
Peruse the "decorator wall d├ęcor" websites, photography occupies a very small subset therein, so again I ask...who is gonna buy your stuff?

Technical Support / non functioning shutter
« on: July 04, 2014, 01:02:34 PM »
Just got this 1DsMkIII back from canon repair>returned all CF settings to the best I can remember...

Problem is that the shutter button will not respond by taking a picture, it will lock on Autofocus but, will not cough out a picture.
However, it will function properly while in Live View does cough out a image shooting in LV.

FYI...customer service is closed today.

Technical Support / 1DsMkIII custom functions
« on: July 02, 2014, 09:55:55 AM »
Alright, I pissed-up...Canon reset all my custom functions during repair and I hadn't saved them.
I always shoot in manual mode using the LCD live view histogram to set exposure.  That said...
anyone have links for suggested CF settings regarding BIF/critters/sports shooting using AI Servo?
FYI...firmware version 1.2.3

Photography Technique / 180 mm macro with kenko extension tubes
« on: June 29, 2014, 08:42:43 PM »
1Ds3 & 180 macro, coupled with extension tubes at minimum focusing distance...12mm/20mm/36mm, all or any combination thereof.
What are the formulas to determine magnification factors using the various extension tubes and/or combinations?    :-[

Technical Support / Repair time
« on: June 25, 2014, 10:51:42 AM »
I just now gave my CC info to Canon in New Jersey to repair my gear...anyone have a guestimate on when I'll get it back in Michigan?    ;)

Macro / Some recent flower stuff
« on: May 30, 2014, 09:40:03 PM »
All shot using a 180 macro on a Ds3

This rose was backlit using a mirror's sun reflection...

A glycerin droplet reflecting a pair of flowers...

Portrait / Coy Dove
« on: April 29, 2014, 03:43:38 AM »
I do a lot of stuff just to see if I could do it.  This dove is 20 images, focus stacked and photo-merged using a tripod mounted 2X TC with a 300 mm 2.8 lens,
manual focusing/exposure.  At full size, it would be a 20" x 30" print at 300 dpi.
