Software & Accessories / Inexpensive Computer for PP
« on: September 29, 2014, 09:33:12 AM »
I thought I would share this for those whose computers are bogged down by PP:

I couldn't stomach the price of a new Mac or even a Windows workstation so I went searching for alternatives on eBay.  I found a used $300 Dell Precision Workstation T5400 with Dual Quad Core 3GHz Xeon CPUs and 32GB of RAM for $300.  I found a brand new 4TB drive for $125.  I'll put the $ I saved into the equipment fund.

I was pointing to his web site that touted a career as a C programmer but he had no clue what the missing DLL meant.

High School should be easy and non major college men's sports as well.  I'd suggest reading up on sideline rules for both levels.

Actually, they did and serviced it under CPS clean and check. My $1500 1D4 had 24,000 actuations which really makes it a great deal especially after they updated the firmware.  So the premium is $3300 for a gray market 1Dx

Still no match for a $2500 1D4 vs a $4800 gray market 1Dx.  Will CPS even register a gray market body or lens?

Used, good condition 1D Mark IV = $2500
Sell 6D =$1300

Total cost $1200 beats $2000 for a new Sigma

Total cost of moving to the sidelines to shoot: $0

Premium = the current additional cost for additional features.  1D4 = $1500, 1Dx = $6799

I'm sorry, we must use current values for value tradeoff analysis

BY the Way, my 70-200 focuses much faster with the 1D series 11.1V system than the 5D or 70D 7.2V system.  Even my old 1D3 focused faster than the 5D3 I had on CPS loan

I shot this with a 1D Mark IV and a 70-200 f/2.8 IS from the sidelines on manual 1250 f/4 Auto ISO.  I'd like a 200-400 too but I have to get the best with the gear I can afford.  Can you get closer to what you are shooting?  Come out of the stands to the sidelines

I have shot the 1Dx and know what it can do but it's not worth the premium IMO especially when I scored a 24K actuation 1D4 for $1500.  Maybe if the 1Dx had 24MP+ or priced around $3500, but not now.

Anybody check out his web site?

Find this....


That file was erased or corrupted and it is needed by every Canon software you want to run.  Download the latest full version of DPP from the Canon site (you will need your 70D S/N) and reinstall it.

One or two ISO stops higher and I get the same shot will keep me happy if I get the extra crop reach.  I will wait and see.  It looks like I can get a 1D4, 7D2, and 5D3 for less than the price of a 1Dx and sell off my 5D2 and 70D.  So if the 7D2 can do that, I will get one then sell my 5D2 and 70D to get the 5D3 or whatever is coming down the line

I finally upgraded my III to a IV and this shot is from a night game tonight.  This was shot with a 70-200 IS at 1250, f/4, ISO4000.  It is a jpeg out of the camera and just cropped and unprocessed.

I wonder if the 7D Mark II will give me a shot better than this
