EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7D MK II with EF 180 mm F/ 3.5 L MACRO
« on: November 25, 2014, 09:22:02 AM »
One of the strong points of my two original 7D's were their use with Macro lenses.  I'm not surprised that the Mark II is also very good with them.  I liked the ability to handhold the camera and 100mm L for close shots.

Yes, Sir, You are right on the target, Dear Teacher Mr. Mt Spokane.
Plus, This 7D MK II and shoot the Flying Bees with 10 FPS, and Super AF. AI Servo AF/ Case5 ( Super smart move from Canon/ New Function)= for erratic subjects moving quickly in any direction.---Pus far away from the angry / super hungry bees.
Have a great day , Sir.

Lenses / Re: Lens as a gift. Non Photographer buying... :)

With the lenses she already has, I think a newer camera is a better gift. IMHO.

+100 for me too, Dear Friend  Mr. sanj
New 7D MK II for Your dear wife, please. Great cost and wonderful camera.

Yes, The more I use this 7D MK II, the more I love this Baby, special with Macro Lens = Super sharp

Thanks for sharing - can you post a full res jpeg or are these already cropped to 100% magnification?

These flowers are definitely a tough call for a crop sensor (bare green and red gradients), and I'd say the rendition has definitely improved from what I know from my 60d. And I'm an outspoken fan of using crop for macro.

However, I feel the 7d2 is wasted on this. If you want top notch iq for gradients like this, there's no way around full frame - look at the transition from dark color to black. If you want sharpness with depth of field, do focus stacking at the lens' sharpest f stop. But you need tethering with the 7d2 as Magic Lantern doesn't run on it.

I know the 7d2 tests show improved sharpness, but I dare to doubt this translates in much of a difference in real world macro shots - it'd be interesting to see a 1:1 comparison here with the 70d or 60d.

Thanks you, Sir, Dear friend Mr. Marsu42
Yes, Sir, No way  of IQ near my 5D MK II, Full frame, But In my Idea this Baby is great for 1.6 X Lens Factor for my Birds Lenses.
my Full size Photos = 8.43  MB , But the CR allow to put the Photo only 5.0 MB. Here is the Smaller photo = 4.3 MB. Full Photo with out crop, But Reduce size.
Enjoy.

Dear friends.
Here are the photos of Flower's Details, from Thanksgiving Cactus Full bloom in my Solarium.
Yes, On the tripods and Press the shutter with self Timer too.
Yes, The more I use this 7D MK II, the more I love this Baby, special with Macro Lens = Super sharp, and can take the Photos of Angry/ Hungry Bees or Mad Yellow Jacket---Ha, Ha, Ha----Yes, I am Chicken Surapon

Thanks to All of my dear Friends.
Glad that , you come to see this post, and see some Crazy DIY that might work for us in the cheap solution.
Have a great Sunday.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: ISO TESTING, BY STUPID METHODS
« on: November 23, 2014, 11:47:40 AM »
Dear Teachers and Friends.
Yes, I want to test the night time photos of the black sky, to see the Noise = Yes, I can see them of the Higher ISO.
Camera, 7D MK II, Lens Tamron (15 years old ) 11-18 mm. F/ 4.5-5.6  SP AF ASPHERICAL Di II LD IF, Set Camera at AV mode at F= 8.0, Set Lens at Manual Focus at Near infinity.
After that, Set IS , start from 100, to the highest ISO of this Camera.
Just Low tech Test in my Idea, Yes, On the medium Tripods, and use Self Timer for minimum Vibration.
Dear friend Surapon. This second test has less environmental variables, and the result is more scientifically repeatable.
To make viewing easier noise, I suggest making a crop from the original 20 megapixel, with the central area of the image (the car and the wall of stones) with resolution 1200x800 pixel. I also suggest only display settings for a whole stop ISO, to facilitate comparison.
Please advise if the photos were shot in RAW, JPEG, what picture style, which noise reduction, which sharpening.
Dear great Teacher Mr. ajfotofilmagem.
Yes, Sir, I just crop and reduc size the original photos as you recommend, With out Post processing.
Yes, Sir, I have learn a lot of new knowledge from you to day, Thousand thanks, Sir.
Surapon
Dear friend Surapon.
Yes, we can now clearly see the noise difference in different ISO settings. I would prefer compared to ISO 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200, 6400, 12800 for a more complete result. But you already have a very fair test. Thank you.

Yes, DSir, Dear Teacher Mr. ajfotofilmagem
Here are more Photos for Comparision.
Enjoy.

Nice to see some honest tests.


so many we see on here are clearly done to make Canon look bad. These images show what can be expected in the nighttime shots.


It would be nice to see some of the "bird" photo's taken with a less extreme lens.

Thanks you, Sir, Dear Friend Mr. Skulker
I will try to shoot the Birds os small wild lifes around my home this afternoon.
Have a great Sunday, Sir.

Never a pointless or "stupid" exercise when it gives you the knowledge of how your camera will handle a light situation later when you dont have time to dial it in... just flip a setting and go...

Nice. I too am finding that a +ev will drop noise markedly in many situations...

Thanks you, Sir, Dear Friend Mr. TeT.

Dear friend Surapon. Not a stupid test, but has many environmental variables that prevent a rigid and repeatable comparison. 8)

To judge the ISO performance of a camera should use a always the same lighting, and make sure the shutter speed will not caisar shake, and make manual focusing with live view before starting the photos, not more alterarr the focus to the test end.

However you can only judge the image noise, regardless of the sharpness.
Thank you, anyway. :D

Thanks you, Sir, Dear my teacher Mr. ajfotofilmagem.
Yes, Sir, That is a great Idea to use Live view to do manual focus before shooting, to get the best Focus.
Yes, I will try again tomorrow. 
I try to adjust the Back Focus from the Camera, But I fail this time, I will try again, Sir.
Yes, in the day time = Very difference light in every 2 minutes, depend on the location of the cloud, You are Right, Sir.
To night, With Minimum  Existing Light / Ambian light change, Yes, Sir, I find out that, the Super High  ISO  of This Camera  is usable BUT NOT GOOD YET.
Have a great night, Sir.

Thanks for your efforts and thorough testing, Mr Surapon!
It seems to hold up nicely in good light. I checked in the darker parts just under your perched parrot, and it looks a lot cleaner and more well behaved. Should be easier to clean up and get a working shot out of this compared to its older sibling and similar APS-C's.

Not entirely sure, I could be tired and cross eyed by this time of day, but is it possible that the lens still backfocuses on that body, Mr Surapon? To me, it seems like focus could be slightly behind the bird. At that distance I would expect at least 1meter (bit more than 3feet) on either side of your focus point.

Thanks you, Sir dear Friend Mr. DominoDude.
Great Recommendation, and I will try modified Back focus again.

It is certainly impressive for high ISO, but you were shooting in strong light (EV 12.3 judging by your exposure). Results from high ISO always looks better when shot in light that is bright enough to not need ihigh ISO. If you'd done this in low light then the difference would become apparent.

Thanks you, Sir, Dear friend Mr. Sporgon.
Yes, Sir, You are right on the target, To night, I already try the Dark Night sky at my home, And see the noise at the high ISO.
Thanks again, Sir.
