Photography Technique / Re: Cropping
« on: August 25, 2014, 10:14:16 AM »
Click on the crop tool. At the top of the screen, there is a bar with a number of selections for the crop tool. You'll see another image of the crop tool with a little down arrow beside it. Click the arrow. You'll see a whole bunch of aspect ratios (dimensions). Pick the one you want and it will constrain the crop to match those dimensions.

or click C key, holdt shift then click on edge of crop overlay, it should retain original aspect ratio
or look here

I use this simple procedure
  • crop image into desired aspect ratio
  • check it's pixel resolution
  • divide each side using desired printing DPI
  • get actual picture size

or another way, if I want to fit the image to some size and then resample the image according the resolution it should have ;)

but maybe there is some more sophisticated procedure to do this, guys?

Lenses / Re: A New Pancake Lens? [CR1]
« on: August 24, 2014, 08:21:26 AM »
this thread brought me to finding these two lenses

especially the 28mm pancake looks so sweet and I bet it exactly fit my travel bag  ;D

You do realize these are MF (with confirmation) only?

yes I do, but I think MF should be fine for travel landscape  ;)

For that, these primes are excellent. I shot this panorama with the Voightlander 40mm at f/5.6 (7 frames combined). Mind, I sold the 40 mm after a year or two because I found I wasn't using it much, and for a walkaround the MF was inconvenient, and the 40mm focal length uninspiring.

very lovely panorama

recently I tried some travel photography with my 24-70 and 70-200 in the bag, I find 70-200 being quite heavy, but it's very useful FL for me...
24-70 is another story, it's superb lens, but I feel like it's quite heavy and I mostly use it on 24mm while travelling, so I'll buy 16-35 f/4 or something even wider (maybe 15mm Zeiss) or/and even better with some nice pancake  :)

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
