Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Dustin Abbott Reviews Tamron 28-300 FF
« on: August 08, 2014, 09:33:51 PM »
Thanks Dustin. :)
The lens appears to be what I was looking for, a compact good lens for travelling, this and a 16-35 II should be all I would need with my 5D3 for travel.
It will be interesting to see if Canon release a 28-300L II as rumoured and if so how it compares.

Post Processing / Re: Merging Multiple Exposures
« on: August 06, 2014, 07:25:03 PM »
Hi All
What a great idea, and the first subject is exactly what I need, creating merged Architecture/Design photos of areas with interior and exterior lighting.
As a suggestion, could you please give more detailed information for me as a very new PS user.
eg
How do I make the brightest exposure the background, [where in the PS menu], how do I then paste the next darkest in the layer above, and how do I generate the final merged picture?

To an experienced user these may seem simple but I am just starting and would really appreciate an almost "monkey see, monkey do" set of instructions that would enable me to achieve the excellent result that you have shown us all.

Regards
Michael

Software & Accessories / Re: carry on limitation for international travel
« on: December 22, 2013, 08:57:18 PM »
Hi. I've just spent 6 weeks in Europe, USA & England travelling from Perth Australia. I had in my Canon backpack a 5dIII, 16-35L II, 24-105L, 70-300L, charger, 11" HP laptop and spare battery and cards. I had the 16-36 on my camera and took 85% of my photos with it and the rest with the 70-300. I think the small backpack size helped me not have a problem anywhere. I would suggest you consider if you really need the tripod and flash, the 5dIII really does take excellent shots in very low light without a flash. I didn't miss my flash at all and took over 3,300 photos in all sorts of lighting conditions. I also found I could have just carried the 16-35 & 70-300.

Lenses / Yet another call for travel lens advice
« on: August 13, 2013, 10:14:40 PM »
Hi all
I have read good comments about the Tamron 24-70 and am wondering if anyone has any thoughts on the Tamron 28-300.

I have a 5D_III, Canon 16-35 II, 24-105 and 70-200L 2.8 IS.

I am leaving on a 6 week holiday in Nov from Perth Australia to Venice, then cruising the Med to Turkey & Miami via St Thomas and a few islands then 2 weeks in England.

I am interested in Landscape, old buildings inside & out anything else I see including hopefully the Duxford aircraft museum.

I am worried about the weight of the 24-105 and esp 70-200 so was thinking of just taking the 16-35 for wide angle and buying the Tamron 28-300 as a travelling lens. I have tried the Canon 28-300, great lens but heavy like the 70-200.

I would appreciate your thoughts and advice.

Michael

I've been getting the same stuff on CR for the last two days, on again/off again.

I think the Squirrels have got into the Coding system, they should be Banned.



Them darned Squirrels  ;D



I believe these are unfair accusations toward the squirrel community, and though not a lawyer, i would be willing to represent them if needed. You have been forwarned! >:(


Oye, that is totally unfair ... you blamd the squirrels that they "got into the Coding system" and they "should be Banned" etc ... but now you have turned into a hostile witness, your testimony is found null and void ... therefore you are banned for life from representing the squirrel community ... I think the only person fully qualified to represent them is paulWalnut as he never blamed the squirrels, in fact he seems to promote them quite heavily ;D



Yes! Two-faced hypocrite!  Should be banned AND ostrecized (or is it ostreSized, British spelling ?) from the squirrel community. No more nuts for  anyone but paulWalnut and the squirrels >:(



I am now prepared to represent the ostriches and protest MY Lord on their behalf about being spoken about in the same topic as those small "multicoloured squirrels". They can't even make up their minds what colour they are whereas we ostriches are only in 1 continent and are all of the same basic colour, besides which we don't have a problem with "nuts" seeing as we don't have any.

Is there any way to low level format a cf card in a 5DIII?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: CF Cards - Where do you buy yours?
« on: March 09, 2013, 10:17:59 AM »
I live in Perth West Australia. Bought 5D III May last year in Perth. Lexar 32gb 1000 cards were over $250 each here. I bought 2 from B&H on a sale acfter reading about it on this site. Paid for airfreight and had delivered within a week. Great service. I was able to track consignment all the way. Total $320. Definitely the say to go. At the time the B&H deal was $25 cheaper after adding in freight than Adorama and the freihht was quicker.

Technical Support / Photographing paintings for a Catalogue help please
« on: February 20, 2013, 02:33:01 AM »
Hi All.
I have been asked by a friend to photograph her paintings for putting into a photo gallery catalogue.

The specs are:
Tiff
Colour space : RGB
Colour ratio : 24 bit

Either height or width of an image should be more than 2000 pixels.
Image must have a valid ICC profile E.G. sRgb /Adobe Rgb (1998)
Image must have a valid RGB colour space and must be 8/24 bit colour ratio.

Could someone translate this for me into ordinary language please?

I have a 5D III with24-105 L and 70-200 IS 2.8 II lenses ands 430 EXII Flash.

Do I shoot in RAW and then process in something, I'm not aware of the camera producing Tiff's directly?

I have LR 4 and PE11. Can these packages be used to produce the required photos, and what settings would you use for shooting, Flash?

Help please? :-[

Lenses / Advice for shooting House Interior with 5DIII
« on: February 01, 2013, 04:06:46 AM »
I have been asked by my son to shoot the interior of a house he has renovated. The photos will go on a web site and in a brochure book he has printed and sends to prospective clients.

I have a 5D III with a 24-105 & 70-200 2.8 II and a 430EX.

On my last shoot I was having difficulty fitting the rooms in the shot so I may have to hire something wider this time.
Any advice appreciated.

Michael

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Adobe RGB or sRGB please?
« on: September 28, 2012, 02:50:00 PM »
Thank you all for your feedback. I think I shall continue to shoot raw and Ljpeg but with adobeRGB set to take advantage of the larger colour range if I want to show a photo immediately to friends on my laptop.

Thanks for the responses. I am using a computer running Win Pro 7 and a Canon Ink jet or Fuji colour laser printer. So if I understand the advice it won't matter for my local printing but will probably matter to a lab. All my photos to date have been sRGB. Would I notice a big difference changing to Adobe RGB. If so would it be just when printing or on my computer monitor as well.
