Hang on, have we gone back to the 1st of this month again?  ;)

Seriously though I don't really see much point in white bodies myself when your going to eventually put a black lens on it. I even think the 'white' L lenses would clash on it as they're not true white like this is.

Oh well if some people like it that's the main thing I suppose.

Although I'm a user that has subscribed to Adobe's CC Photoshop Photography Program and feel that this particular £8.49/$9.99 'limited offer' (note the exclamation marks) is actually half reasonable, I do feel peoples pain and annoyance towards the CC model.....however I will say that I get the feeling that we are going to see this type of thing (essentially the 'rental' of software) more and more from the big software companies. It's the whole 'cloud' concept thats pushing it and it seems that's the way everything is going. I guess we just have to lump it and move with the times.....or do we? or am I just talking baloney ;)

I just simply created a collection called iPad dedicated for my camera roll imports.
Does that Collection sync back up to your PC? If the Collection does not exist on your main LR PC does it create it for you and then transfer the images from the iPad?

I believe I created it in LR on my PC and it then popped up in LR on my iPad. I then imported from my camera roll using LR on my iPad and these then appeared in the collection on my PC.

I've only tested it this way so far. So not sure what would happen if you create a collection on the iPad first. I get the feeling you may still have to create it on your PC LR too because you have to set the collection to be a synced one.

Makes sense. I will try this later today once I am near my home LR PC.
I just synced the iPad to my main LR PC and low and behold LR created a new Collection Set and under that was the new Collection I created today along with the four images I had gathered from the film roll. It placed the actual images here on my PC:
{HDD}\Lightroom\Mobile Downloads.lrdata\*.*

My third party camera kit card is broken - I guess IOS 7 disabled it, therefore I cannot test out importing a series of .CR2 files to the film roll, creating a collection and importing them. It should work though. That should provide a decent onsite workflow selection process as you can swipe up or down on an image to flag it a Pick/Unpick or Reject.

Oh that's good then. Yeah I noticed the mobile downloads folder too.
Out of interest what name did it create for the collection set?

I've had a play with it very briefly.  I just happened to subscribe to CC last week when the 9.99 was available for people who don't own previous PS versions.  You can add from the iPads camera roll which means you can also use a camera connection kit and add to the camera roll and then into the LR Mobile app.  You have to go to the collections screen and then there is a settings button on the lower right of each collection thumbnail and you get the option there to add from the camera roll.

Adjustments are fast and you can do all the adjustments in the main basic area of LR but not the Detail or any of the others.  You can crop and you can do very quick flag and rejects by just swiping up or down respectively.  It immediately syncs back your changes to LR on your home computer if you are connected to internet.  You can tell it to use 3G or not if you have 3G iPad.
 
In LR on your computer you can only sync from your collections pane and only base level collections can be selected (you can't select an entire collection set in one click) also you can't select individual pictures to sync (at least so far I can't find a way) so it may make more sense to make a dedicated collection for syncing and then reorder back at home??  Sync is fairly slow, I did 180 photos and it took at least 15-20 mins to get them all up to the iPad.

First impressions:  somewhat useful for me...maybe....I will need to see if I can move files directly from memory card onto iPad and into LR but I can't see that working very well if you haven't already loaded the raws on your main computer/drives.  It would end up being just a jpeg that would get synced and wouldn't have any relation to the raw file that you may import later at home??

Funny I just subscribed to the CC Photoshop Photography Program in the last few days too.
I was going to explain the iPad camera roll import thing but you've saved me the trouble  :)
I've had a quick play and think it's pretty good. No problems here with syncing. I just simply created a collection called iPad dedicated for my camera roll imports.

For those claiming this as 'ammo'...  The complaints I've seen (and heard, including video) have all been about a clicking sound from the ZOOM ring, this post is about the FOCUS ring.  I trust that Canon knows the difference.

Or maybe that's the exact reason we aren't getting any help - they got the two rings mixed up in the memo! ;D :P

That would be alarming to say the least!

Exactly my thoughts as soon as I read this article. All the noise issues people have had is with the ticking zoom action and not the focus ring...which is virtually silent.  :o

slclick, I have mine set up exactly the same as neuroanatomist for the same reasons mentioned.
The B+W filter you mention would be my recommendation too. Either the clear or UV version.

I like the hood and recommend that too. You may struggle to find one though. Think I got mine sent over from Germany in the end.

Lenses / Re: Strange AFMA results with canon 50 f1.4
« on: February 23, 2014, 07:57:07 AM »
Having searched for this problem now it appears that this is common with this lens design. It suffers from focus shift with aperture changes.  :( what a pain.

So I've kind of settled on leaving it set to +10 as this seems fairly accurate at most distances and apertures that will be common to my shooting needs/style.

Lenses / Strange AFMA results with canon 50 f1.4
« on: February 22, 2014, 06:18:43 PM »
Ok this ones strange.
Just been adjusting the AFMA for my canon 50 f1.4 on my 5D III.
I've found that I have to set it to around +15 when aperture is wider than f4 and particularly when shooting at medium to far distances. But if aperture is f4 or narrower and particularly when subject is at close distances it's best left at around +5.

Anyone experienced similar?

All my other lenses AFMA settings are unaffected by aperture changes.

So what software do we get exactly?

Is it the full version of Lightroom 5 and the full version of CS6?

This seems like a terrific deal to be hones

no you'll be able to use Photoshop CC which is the latest and first post boxed version (ie. only ever been available in creative cloud). plus lightroom 5..which as far as i'm aware only comes in one version

13
to be honest i can see this eventually becoming a permanently available option alongside the current single app and full apps options.

Lenses / Re: 24-70 II slight clicking sound when zooming

Third time was the charm, smooth and silent!!  April build 042 !!
 ;D

tremendous!  :)
so i wonder if it's been properly sorted/addressed in the more recent builds? seems to me that most reports of the clicky ones are early 2013. lots on the 032 build by the sounds of it from this thread and other forums. pretty sure the clicky one I had replaced was a february 2013 build.

I bought the 24-70 2.8 II during the recent price drop from Amazon, and both copies of the lens have had a clicking noise.  It's not horrendously loud, but it's certainly noticeable enough to make me worry something is wrong inside the lens.

I recorded a short video and the on-board mic picked up the clicking fairly well.  Is this the same clicking noise you guys are talking about?

Canon 24-70 f/2.8 II Zoom Ring Clicking Noise


yep the clicking sound is the one that you can hear in your clip the most when returning zoom (zooming out to 24mm). the normal zoom 'shooshing' sound is very emphasised in that video too, but in reality/actual use you tend to just hear the clicking sound on it's own as it sounds in your video.
