For your harsh C&C


Macro / droplet C&C needed

I have something special in mind for this image...nitpick it to death please.

FYI it's 32" at 300ppi.

Canon General / What is the problem with Canon
« on: January 09, 2014, 07:41:31 AM »
I shoot with a 1Ds MkIII and basically love it but, it has horrible ISO performance and relatively low MP count as compared to Sony's chip in their, and Nikon's, cameras.  I continue to read that Canon has a comparable chip in testing as well as a crop chip, also in testing, that supposedly surpasses anything out there.
So, I ask you...what is the delay???       >:(

Lenses / Canon 2X III teleconverter
« on: December 12, 2013, 09:29:06 AM »
Mounted this new puppy from Amazon between my 1Ds3 and a 300mm f/2.8 lens...was not a happy camper.
Sent some images to Canon Customer Support in Va and they agreed that there was a problem with IQ and that it should be returned or fixed under warranty.
 Which would you'll do?
Additionally, I've been considering one of these things  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001BX3ZXE/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B001BX3ZXE&linkCode=as2&tag=dpsgeneral-20
to help with shutter slap vibrations a lower SS, feasible or a waste of money?

Macro / Fuzzy thing

Handheld 180 macro mounted on a 1Ds3 and "stacked" in CS6.


EOS Bodies - For Stills / Never let it be said...
« on: September 11, 2013, 08:16:22 AM »
That adjusting the "micro-focusing" is unnecessary. I recently took the time to do mine using a yardstick with a piece of glitter duck tape attached. 800 pixel crops

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Things in between
« on: September 04, 2013, 08:18:28 AM »
I have two lenses hanging from my 1Ds3 95% of the time, a 300mm f/2.8 or a 180mm macro. I'm leery about using a series of extension tubes and/or TC's
between these lenses and the camera body due to the weight of the glass and the body.
Regardless of whether I mount the body or the lens to a tripod, it seems like a lot of unsupported weight hanging off either end. Is it cause for concern?

Am considering a extra long tripod mounting plate, if such an animal exists, and bracing either the lens or the camera body...if it's necessary. What say you all?

Animal Kingdom / Egret advice
« on: August 11, 2013, 10:16:47 AM »
I take a lot of Egret images waiting for them to fly...I want the BIF series to photo-merge. Anyway, I'm sitting there waiting and clicking...getting this

He then has a moment of indiscretion, he takes a dump and I start to laugh, losing him in the viewfinder and my series shot is gone.
Moral of story...if they take a dump, they are gonna take off.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / MF question
« on: August 10, 2013, 08:40:19 PM »
If Canon's toying with the idea, I have a question...is macro and/or long distance possible using a medium format?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Noise in 1DsMkIII
« on: August 05, 2013, 01:32:44 PM »
My shutter count is about 30-40,000 and noise seems to be increasing in my images...what used to be noise at ISO 800 is now present at ISO 400.
Just spoke to customer service and was told that it could be because I PP in LR4 and to try using DPP, have not done that yet.

Two questions: what in LR might be aggravating the noise and, if it isn't LR caused, what may cause the problem?

Technical Support / metal print question
« on: June 21, 2013, 12:47:18 PM »
I'm having no luck in finding ICC Profiles for having metal prints made from any printing company...
The phrase "when in doubt, make a print" just doesn't cut it @ $50 a pop.      :(
Any help out there?       :-\

Canon General / improving IQ in landscape
« on: June 18, 2013, 12:12:33 PM »
Rather than using a WA lens which can lead to distortion, why not take numerous images with a zoom lens then photo-merge them together.
You will end up with a rather large image but, downsizing an overly large image will lead to a superior image, IQ wise.
Comments welcome!       ;)

Technical Support / Auto ISO performance
« on: May 29, 2013, 07:09:35 AM »
Background...1Ds3 and generally shoot in manual mode, setting exposure in LV while utilizing the all color histogram, in an  ETTR technique.
This method gives me a Lightroom histogram that is just shy of grazing the right side, in my mind, the perfect ETTR technique.

Question...will the newer generation cameras with auto ISO, specifically the 5D3, cough out comparable results?
