Speedlites, Printers, Accessories / Re: Custom ICC Printer Profiles
« on: December 12, 2014, 10:15:40 AM »
I recommend the Spyder products too.
Making paper profiles is a nerve consuming work, but the two profiles I made are fitting much better then the profiles, offered by the paper producers.

Good luck and be patient clicking your way through the fields!!

Technical Support / Re: What kind of photo printer do you use?
« on: December 11, 2014, 02:53:16 AM »
An Epson 3800, since 2009.
Very reliable; and I learnt a lot about color profiles....

Now, with calibrated monitor and using icc profiles (sometimes I make them myself if I am not satisfied) it is fun to print myself.

Software & Accessories / Re: Tripods - CF or Aluminum...?

If you can afford it, take CF.
Head: ball quicker, not soo exact; friction head very exact, heavier.
Good luck they are interchangeable.

Lenses / Re: Bokeh: Good vs. Bad?
« on: December 02, 2014, 01:41:48 PM »
The only Bokeh I dislike is from my 70-200/2,8 with the TC 1.4.
The 135L is remarkable, the 35L, the Fujinon XF 23 1,4.
My shy 2 cents.

For Bokeh the 35 or the 50, my personal choice would be the 35L

Canon General / Re: Does Canon really deserve this?

The 18MP in very much cameras- that was a real PITA.
Halfhearted mirrorless, lost the top position they had with the 5dmk2.

On the plzs side: excellent new lenses
And the radiocontrolled flashes.

Sometimes I think of Canon consisting of two different philosophies...

DSLR Controller.
Take a look, which camera is supported.
Features are great.
And check out the FAQ- section if you are a backbutton- user like me!
Have fun!

Galaxy Note v1. In sufficient light surprisingly good, also the video.
Its nice to have this as a quickdraw!

Lets see, what the practise shows.

For my POV, using a xxMP sensor, getting information of a certain "lightfield" (always good to use a new term to be cool and different!) and then cut out a slice can only result in a very low portion of the whole information, means notsogood IQ.
Somewhere, must be now 3 or 4 years ago, I read about a sensor around 3 or 6MP, capable to make prints to show online (their words) - didnt sound very promising other then a fun- or lifestyle tool.

I would be surprised if this would be better!

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Most ridiculous camera ever?

The Hasselblad- Version of a Sony NEX, 5 times so expensive with absolutely no benefit.
And to ice the cake: ugly as hell.
