EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5D mark iii vignetting in RAW
« on: August 12, 2012, 07:14:22 PM »
Am i crazy or do raw photos add a bit of vignetting? I am shooting both jpeg and raw on my mark iii and the raws have this light vignette that gets thrown on for the raw. the images look much better but is that vignette normal? i will try and put a sample up if people dont get what im saying. This is with all the shots so it doesnt have to do with filters on the lens or anything. All different zoom lenghts and lenses. I am just dragging the raw files off my SD card to my desktop then importing them into aperture 3.3.2

Lighting / Re: First Time Flash Test

Ok, enough about marketing.  ::)

You mention bouncing, but the shots appear to be outdoors. What are you bouncing off, foamcore or equivalent, a reflector, a garage door, etc.?  In all 3 shots (most evident on the first two), the flash has strongly overpowered the background, that's usually not ideal.  Open the aperture a bit (can't drop shutter too low else subject motion is an issue), apply some negative FEC so your filling instead of overwhelming.

The group family shots - how many people, indoors or out, day or night, what lens(es) will you be using?

I did some bounce off the side of my house and did some rotating of the flash so it wasnt so direct. for the family shots it will be anywhere between 4 and 30 people. i wont have any assistant just myself and the 600 strapped to the top of the 5d. it may be outdoors or indoors. i want to do indoors for flash purposes. lens wise ill be using my 16-35 2.8 ii for the larger family shots and probably 24-105 for the rest. Is there any obvious setting on the 600ex to change or just stay in ettl mode? i also see im restricted to 1/200th of a sec and i realize that it doesnt matter because the camera is just playing off the flash in terms of shutter release. I think that is right?

... why would there not be a built in transmitter in the mark iii to the 600 ex? technology is definitely there to have the flash off the camera and release it without having to buy a $150 transmitter.

You just answered that question...so Canon can sell the transmitter (which costs double the price you suggest).

I think thats a silly way of looking at it (which people do about all companies) instead just bump the mark iii price by $200 and add this "awesome new feature!" people would be happier with that and they would make more money. the price point the camera is at wont differ peoples opinions on buying. good features will.

Lighting / First Time Flash Test
« on: August 08, 2012, 09:40:10 PM »
Hey all im renting the 600 EXRT for some group family shots this weekend so tested it out on my dog. this is all just on camera trying to bounce it different ways. Any tips would be great i really dont have much idea what i am doing. i have the 5d Mark iii. Also why would there not be a built in transmitter in the mark iii to the 600 ex? technology is definitely there to have the flash off the camera and release it without having to buy a $150 transmitter.

I have been using aperture for a while now and dont see me using anything different. It does all the standard organization and editing one would need. Does anyone know of any free plugins to gain more effects though? Aperture seems to be lacking in preset effects such as "toy camera" or "cross process" i feel there has to be more options out there. this is just for quick fun edits instead of doing it all manually. any help would be great!

Lighting / 430ex ii with 5d mark iii
« on: July 13, 2012, 12:10:21 PM »
i have 175$ credit at crutch field burning a hole in my pocket. figured why not get a flash? would the 430ex ii be a suitable flash for a somewhat beginner photographer in the flash game? I will be using it basically for recreational purposes. all around photo stuff. also can the flash stay lit up as an external light for video? is this recommended?

I havent seen this until today? seems like an insane amount of noise happening. when i bump up the ISO it goes away a bit but thats because the image gets lighter. im shooting at iso 125 here. f4 1/50

the youtube gets loaded as super dark so here is the youtube video but also a screen grab from quicktime

Noise canon 5d Mark iii vertical lines Small | Large

Canon 5d Mark iii 1080p normal compression 24fps it showed up with both 24-105 and 16-35mm lenses.

Lenses / Re: Lens out of stock
« on: May 04, 2012, 03:14:27 PM »
Crutchfield gets 5% back on my bank of America card, no NY tax (where I'm located) and ~$100 gift card on the 70-200. So compared to BH I'm paying $1900 for the lens instead of $2250 from BH (this is with double rebate applied)

Lenses / Lens out of stock
« on: May 03, 2012, 06:49:14 PM »
I attempted to purchase the 50 1.2 and the 70-200 is ii from crutchfield but they are both out of stock! (they were in stock a couple weeks ago) ton of people must be taking advantage of the rebates. does anyone know how fast lens stock gets replenished? i assume its quicker than a new camera because canon probably has stock sitting around.
