;D  ;D  ;D The only comparison that would be hard for me is Warner Bros vs Disney (Looney Tunes vs. Mickey, Donald, etc) ;D  ;D  ;D
Why so hard? Mickey is better/smarter then Donald ;D ;D ;D
They are both Disney so no comparison! The comparison I mentioned was Warner Bros vs Disney!


Warner Bros hands down! I'll take that wascally wabbit and Wile E. Coyote over any disney character any day of the week.

A migratory raptor to my area from November to late April and a very hard raptor to capture! Anyone here having any luck capturing these raptors?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Anyone Mind Another 70D vs 6D Question?
« on: November 22, 2013, 11:48:03 AM »
6D - not too different for AF, much better high ISO performance

70D - better AF, not too different high ISO performance (assuming you shoot RAW)

5DIII - much better AF, much better high ISO performance, much more expensive…

Given that the T1i Af meets your needs, I'd say the 6D is the better choice if the 5DIII is out of budget.

I have a question about the image noise in the 6d and 5d mark iii. Most of the reviews state that the 6d has better high iso range than the 5d mark iii. In another thread here a member stated that the difference is not as big as most reviews show due to the 5d mark iii not being in the same settings as the 6d.

My question is what settings on a 5d mark iii  in raw or jpeg would make such a 1 to 2 stop difference in high iso compared to a 6d?

Here's the link to one such review that shows the differences at high iso. There is another one that actually shows a night photo of a building taken at the same iso that shows a big difference as well. Don't remember what website that was though.

Clouds at sunset. What do you see?

A lady kissing a frog?
A panther taking a bite out of the sun?

Hawk
Canon 60D 100-400

Sparrow
Canon 60D Efs 55-250

Quick question: I use center point focus AI Servo. Going to upgrade to either a 6D or 5D mark III. Would using the same setting on a 6D give the same results as the 60D. Those of you using a 5D mark III what are your settings as for as bird in flight.


Thanks.

I have a life-time supply of Heron picts, was looking for something different.

I call and raise you two... LOL...
Ha! Ha! Ha! Looks like Chauncey raised you four!

Har..! I am counting Chauncey's spectacular photo as one. So I will match Diablo - except the photos have to be at least 2000 pixels on one edge, because manly men don't crop excessively.  ;)





I raise you three law breaking herons.

One who is clearly jaywalking! And two more that are taxiing down a runway without clearance from the tower!

I had been looking for an owl for a long time. I could hear them all the time in and around my house but could never see them. I took this photo handheld @1/40s at almost nightfall, raised the exposure in lightroom. Not one of my best but yet another bird I can cross off my list!
i have a lot of great horned owls around my house. i see them in the daytime midwinter sometimes but the rest of the year i only see them at, or after dark, i have been trying to get a decent shot of one myself for a few weeks but no luck? they are like cops, never around when you need them?

nice pics,

Thanks

I see them most of the time when I'm going to work in the early mornings. I have to drive very alert where I live because of the population of wildlife mainly deer where I live. I've seen some pretty big owls in my area but of course its always when I don't have a camera with me!
