Software & Accessories / neoprene cover for 5DmkIII
« on: August 08, 2014, 04:07:13 AM »
Hi guys,
I'm looking for some nice neoprene cover for 5D mark III (body only) and lenses 24-70 and 70-200 (also separate). What I expect it to have nice fit and to provide layer of padding when my body/lenses is in my bag. Even better would be, if there is some kind of water resistance provided.

Any ideas?

Lenses / Re: Help deciding on a macro lens
« on: August 04, 2014, 09:10:53 AM »
here you can see one nice review
zeiss 100mm on the digital picture

I find 100L being one excellent lens, light, small, sharp. Zeiss may have a bit better image quality but for me it was not a choice. Canon has 1:1 macro, stabilisation, and AF. These three things create from 100L much more universal lens than zeiss - at least for me.

Compared to 70-200 mk II: I still like to use this lens when I want to go light or because of sharpness or beautiful bokeh, even when macro is not involved.

EDIT: and 100L does not extend when focusing  ;)

Photography Technique / 5D III delete RAW+JPEG
« on: July 30, 2014, 12:58:17 PM »
Last weekend I used for the first time the option to simultaneously record RAW to CF card and JPEG to SD card on my 5D mk. III, it worked as expected however I found one thing when deleting shots I didn't like.

After quick review I decided to delete some shots, everything seemed ok, pictures weren't shown when browsing shots on camera, but then I realised only RAW shots were deleted and JPEG shots remained untouched. It think this is bit inconvenient as I wanted to have same two sets one in RAW and one in JPEG. Basically I had to review JPEG set again after I removed CF card from camera.

Is there any way to set the body to delete image from both cards simultaneously?

Thank you

Macro / Re: Mechanicals
« on: July 25, 2014, 05:14:55 AM »
I really like all these metalic monochrome shots at macro or near macro distances and this one is also really nice  ;)

That's a difficult photo to capture, a flash might have ruined it.  Shiny metal is among the most difficult for me.

Indeed, I would even say there is no flash necessary, I find natural light, maybe some reflector fine enough to create nice high contrast shot of metalic subject

Lenses / Re: Yes! Finally, the 70-200 f/2.8 II

congratulation!  ;)

I bought mine only few weeks ago and I already love this lens  ::)

Regarding your question, I almost never take the collar of, indeed it's some additional weight, but it's nothing too horrible and when not mounted on tripod I use it rotated sideways as handle (so the camera is hangning in portrait orientation)

I'm in - it's really good idea to have PP section.

I would even split it into landscape/portrait/some other PP subsection  :)

Canon General / Re: Seeing Rebels....
« on: July 08, 2014, 05:00:37 AM »
Am I the only one who doesn't care what mode random people use? It's one thing to observe what camera someone has (and since manufacturers often put the model name on the strap, it's easy for those of us to don't follow the mass market offerings closely) from afar, but getting up close enough to observe mode-selection dials? That's weird. IJS.

It's kinda obvious when rebel users came to me and asked for photography advice. Not only they were shooting in the green mode, they were also using auto focus(camera focus to nearest point.)

Would that considered as "weird"?
 

I usually only notice brand and type of body&lens combo and there are lots of rebels and kit lenses, really lots, even here in Slovakia, but in general everywhere I travelled.  It happens to me I'm quite often asked to take a picture for someone. And then 99% of those cameras is in auto mode, ok maybe even 100%

really very nice series of shots ... [here should be hand clapping smilie, but I couldn't find one]
only one thing bugged my eye, shot No.7 is bit blurred for my taste, but maybe you wanted it to be so  ;)

Interesting read.
http://www.dpreview.com/articles/2666934640/what-is-equivalence-and-why-should-i-care

Like it or not, that's the first decent thing I've seen them do in years, maybe ever.

indeed, I like the way it's written, most concepts are very easy understandable

Equivalence is a concept I have been banging on about for a long time and I have posted equivalent images on many occasions, the fact that aperture and iso also have a "crop factor" is so often misunderstood or completely ignored.

But I feel the article is s touch simplistic as I didn't see mention of the key aspect to equivalence, reproduction size. I will still push people towards the grandfather of equivalence articles here:  http://www.josephjamesphotography.com/equivalence/

And the Wikipedia page here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depth_of_field simply lays out the three scenarios where where a crop camera can be shown to have more, less, or identical dof to a ff sensor depending on how you are comparing or using it under the section "Relationship of DOF to format size".

Thanks for sharing, I'll have a look on it after work. Main reason why I shared dpreview article were comparistion shots, so you can see immediately the difference. Yes indeed reproduction size is another aspect of crop size, but I think the focus of this article was in having same composition with different setup ("same" aperture lens vs. different crop factor body)

I have just read one veeery interesting article with great comparisions on topic light, max aperture, crop factor and ISO and how do they play together
