Canon General / Re: Renaming and storing photos

I use LR and have a folder for each year with a subfolder for the day of the shot. I tag the photos in LR during or after the import process. Works well for me.

I'm a Canon guy 100%!  But more DR capability is always better if everything else is equal.

The analogy of a car with more HP is a good one. Don't always need it, but when you do, you are extremely grateful to have it. Extra HP can save your life and more DR can save a photo.

I hope Canon improves DR someday, but until then I will happily use my Canon 5D3, it is a great Camera.

"Actually, a car with too much power can easily be deadly if you don't know what you're doing with it."

"Back to dynamic range...I would completely agree with you if Canon's dynamic range were inadequate"

Regarding your first comment, I will take my chances with more DR. lol
Regarding the second comment, Canon DR is adequate, but I want great, not adequate.

Don't get me wrong, I'm very happy with my Canon, getting great photos with it, but there are times more DR would be welcome.  End of discussion for me.

But...everything else is NOT equal.

Yes and that is why I said it!!! LOL

Bottom line Neuroa.., would you prefer a 5D3 with greater DR or not?

I bought  a T4i, for my girlfriend and she loves it but says it is too big. So yes there is a market, I think it will be a success and I don't like mirrorless cameras so I find this is a fantastic move by Canon. Gee people complaining about too much choice, really don't get it.

I thought that's what the EOS-M was for. Or Nikon 1.

We both prefer DSLR with optical viewfinder format & EF-S mount. AF faster on T4i which was important also. Mirrorless is not for every one.

Great photos all, but for my taste some of them have too much post processing.

EOS Bodies / I have a 5D3 what are +'s & -'s of 1DsIII
« on: November 18, 2012, 10:31:26 PM »
I have a 5D3 and have a chance of picking up a used 1DsIII at a good price.
My question is what would be the comparative advantages/disadvantages of the 1DsIII relative to my 5D3 that I have now?

I would especially appreciate answers from people who have both of these bodies.

Thanks for any comments.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Convince me to shoot in RAW

To the OP, I say why? If you are happy with jpg all the more power to you. Even my gf doesn't shoot jpg anymore!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon Surveys for 5D Mark III
« on: November 08, 2012, 04:17:37 PM »
What was the original sales price of the 5D2 adjusted for inflation. I don't think there is much of a difference with the 5D3. We live in a market economy nobody forces you to buy anything. Complaining here doesn't do squat.

I bought a 5D3 and have been enjoying it immensely. It has given me many hours of enjoyment along with getting some great photos I couldn't of gotten with my 7D. Well worth every penny.

If I had an equivalent Nikon I'm sure I would be almost as happy. If I was heavy into landscapes sure the 800 is better, but I'm into sports, and low light, so I have the camera for me.

I'm going to stick with Canon  :-[, but any friends who ask, I will say go look at what Nikon has, as their cameras are definitely better then Canon presently.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Tips on shooting hockey?
« on: October 31, 2012, 11:31:28 PM »
For hockey I feel comfortable all the way up to 12,800. I rarely get good photos under 1/800 when the puck is in play. Try M with aperture and shutter set and ISO on ISO with a max of 12,800 ISO set. Focus point I set in middle with 8 surrounding points. Also good to put on high speed continuous. I have never tried any of the special modes for focusing. I guess I should give it a try.

You can go Auto ISO in full manual?  Didn't know you could do that.  Will try, thx.

With a 5D3 yes, but then I'm not sure you can EC +1.  I know you can on 1D bodies, but not sure about 5D3. 

Yes you got me on that one. When I did EC+1, I was in shutter priority.  :-[ . Another reason to want a 1DX  :-\
