Lenses / Re: 16-35 f/4 IS for infrared?
« on: May 24, 2014, 06:44:38 PM »
I wonder too. It prevents me to sell the 17-40 and to order the 16-35 f/4 IS. I am very impatient and curious :-)

The 17-40L worked fine for infraphotography. I wonder, how the 16-35 f/4L IS will behave. In general, lenses with IS are more prone to hot spot. What do you think?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5DMkIII wallpaper?
« on: December 08, 2013, 03:11:37 AM »
Hello, I am looking for a desktop wallpaper showing the 5DMk III as a main subject. I googled some of them, but I'm not fully satisfied yet. I would prefer a low key picture allowing distinct display of icons. Could anyone share? Many thanks in advance!

I was wondering how my camera would cope with moving children as a subject. It succeeded :-) Could you help me to entitle the first one snap?

Software & Accessories / Writing keywords from jpg to raw file
« on: September 06, 2013, 05:23:27 AM »
I shoot jpg+raw (crw, cr2) and in the past I incontinently tagged with keywords only all of my jpg files. Now I would like to write the keywords also to the raw files. I can't imagine doing it manually. Is there any automated way how to do it, i. e. read the keywords from jpg EXIF and write it to raw exif? I tried to find some application, but haven't succeeded yet. Many thanks for any hint in advance.

Technical Support / Re: Canon 5D3 at airshow
« on: August 13, 2013, 04:05:02 PM »
Being at the air show the first time, I wanted to try this kind of photo genre. The longest focal length I had available was 200 mm, which is on FF in my opinion too short. Anyway, I attach some of my first attempts :-)

EOS Bodies / How to delete raw and jpg files simultaneously?
« on: July 20, 2013, 12:53:51 PM »
I tried to set up my 5D3 in order to write raw files on CF card and jpgs on SD. The playback was set on SD card. When I delete picture, the only jpg file from the SD card is deleted, raw file stays untouched on the CF. How to arrange to delete both, raw and jpg files simulaneously?

Lenses / EF 24-70 II + Cokin P
« on: May 30, 2013, 05:04:14 PM »
I have Cokin P filter system with wide angle filter holder (one filter slot only). Is this holder going to vignette at wide end of EF 24-70 II?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Do you use Long Exposure Noise Reduction?
« on: May 30, 2013, 09:08:02 AM »
When shooting with ND1000 or infrared filters, I have dilemma whether to set the LENR on, or off. Off means faster work, on – less noise. What do you prefer? BTW, is also RAW file less noisy when LENR is applied?

Reviews / Re: Review - Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM
« on: April 17, 2013, 05:36:32 PM »
I don't have any problem to understand that the back ground or fore ground can be nervous , but here are the 2 lenses compared at the same  distances and there are several distances.
But neither of them reveals anything like this:

Your "several distances" are too short. You concluded that both lenses have wonderful bokeh, which is incorrect in many situations. They typically include shooting half-body environmental portraits, not miniature toys; and not always wide open.
Pi, ankorwatt says, and pictures prove that, the Sigma has not worse bokeh, than canon has, despite it has less CA and is sharper - optically better. No more, no less. And no one says the bokeh of 35 mm f1.4 lens is as nice as 70-200 f2.8 II or 135 f2 for example. But from 35 mm f1.4 lens bunch it is the best one.

EOS Bodies / EOS not good for NASA?

It's not a secret that NASA uses Nikon cameras and lenses ( after using Hasselblad cameras during the Apollo mission.
Could we reveal the reason?
