EOS Bodies / Re: Who is going to buy the new 5Ds's?
« on: February 05, 2015, 09:30:44 AM »
I will likely buy one.  My passion is flower and art glass, so the more pixels, the better if they are good pixels.  My only question now is do I get the R model or not.  I'll wait until I see some real-world test shots and some reviews.  Being as invested as I am in EF lenses, it's not cost effective for me to switch platforms.

As far as workflow for 50 megapixel photos, I just had to replace an ageing Mac Pro and got the 5K retina iMac and loaded it with 24 GB of RAM, so I can handle the larger photos.  Disk space will always be an issue, but the cost of disks is getting lower and lower.  My concern is how to do long-term archival of the files.

Canon General / Canon HQ

I happen to be working in Melville, NY and drive by both the Canon and Nikon US HQ each day.   So, for everybody's humor, here is a picture (from my phone, don't complain) of Canon's HQ.  It's probably 10 times the size of the Nikon building by the way.

For me, it's not showing up as an update from the Adobe Creative Cloud app.   Maybe it's going to be standalone only.   Ducking under my desk now......

Ken-Caryl valley - Littleton, CO USA

The mountains on the right are the Rocky Mountains.  We live in a valley at the start of the Rockies.  The area is southwest of Denver, CO.  The mountains to the left are known as the Dakota Hogback and are an uplift about 220 feet high that runs 60 miles north south.  This pano was taken at the first snow a couple of years ago and is looking due south.

Thanks Canon Rumors.  I saw the article yesterday and snapped one up.  B&H shipped today.

Not a criticism, but there are 3 kinds of activities, your interests, her interests (assuming you are a heterosexual man), and shared interests.  It sounds like the vacation was heavy on shared interests and you brought gear for your interests.  You are not the first to go through this.  Might be time to plan your next trip with some clear times set out for your interests - photography and not just snapshots.  I understand this is frustrating as is evident from your post.  Put it behind you and plan forward.

Street & City / Chicago pano

Here is a shrunk pano I made on the 14th of June, 2014 from the Adler Planetarium at sunrise.  It's 10 shots from an EOS-M with a 24-70 on the EF lens adapter.

I want to thank everybody for the great advice, especially Doug Southall who send me some of his amazing pictures.  My father and I did the tour with Adventurous Antelope Canyon Tours.  Due to the federal closure of the parks and recreation areas around there, they were turning people away!  Sure glad we got reservations.  My father is 76 and was able to do Rattlesnake canyon in addition to Upper Antelope.  Our guide was named Ryan and really provided some great help and advice.  I'm now processing the pictures and will hope to post some soon.  My wife and I are going to plan a trip back and add the lower canyon too.

Take heed of the video posted about the floods.  They have had 4 flash floods there this year.  The good news is that it's a changed canyon each time.

Thanks again for all the help.  What a wonderful site this has been for me.

Don't forget the Photo Permit if you intend to use your photos or videos "for financial gain or public display and exhibition."

The Navaho Nation is one of the most financially depressed areas of the country and at times it can feel like the Tribe is trying to rectify that through its menu of fees.

Thanks.  I am taking these for my own as I am not a professional photographer, but will look at their rules and regs as it might come into play if these are gifts.

I spent 6 weeks in Tuba City in the late 70's one summer and saw the economic and societal issues that they have.  Please understand that I don't intend to try to shortchange the Navaho people for my own gain. 


Landscape / Antelope Canyon, AZ Recommendations?
« on: September 18, 2013, 04:35:52 PM »
I'm going to be staying in Page AZ for a couple of days the first week of October.  There are a few companies who do tours of the slot canyons at the Antelope Canyons.  Has anybody had experiences that they can recommend one way or another which companies to use or avoid?

Thank you in advance,
