Landscape / Moon photos
« on: September 02, 2014, 09:43:09 PM »
I don't know if a new or dedicated topic is warranted, but I wanted to share a very clear image of the moon I shot tonight using the Canon 6D and pre-IS 400mm f/2.8 L II w/ Canon Extender 2X II and Kenko extender 1.4x (1120mm f/8, 1/350s, ISO 800)

I saw this ad on craigslist and thought it was amusing enough to share... ;D

Third Party Manufacturers / Nikon makes development announcement for D4S
« on: January 06, 2014, 09:12:30 PM »
"As Nikon's new flagship model, the D4S will offer advances over the Nikon D4 digital SLR camera that include even better image quality enabled with adoption of a new image-processing engine, and more advanced autofocusing performance."

This doesn't sound like a new sensor is in the works, which I find very surprising. Maybe they aren't ready to tip their hand yet.

Software & Accessories / Anyone tried the Replichrome "film look"presets
« on: October 04, 2013, 03:15:41 PM »
So, I guess these are supposed to be a much better alternative to VSCO film packs. Anyone tried them? The reviews sound good. I wish there were a free trial...I realize that is not really possible with Lightroom Presets.

"Canon and Nikon released the 1D X and D4 FF DSLRs, respectively, both of which sacrificed fill factor to add transistors serving as floating diffusion (FD) node switches. These switches add the flexibility to perform charge-domain binning for video modes."

I'm not trying to restart the flameware against video in our cameras, but I do want to say that I am very disappointed that two flagship stills cameras are sacrificing stills performance for video.

Canon General / Question about editing for online consumption
« on: June 17, 2013, 04:07:27 PM »
I edit on a 27" iMac which has a pretty nice IPS LCD display. I make sure that my Lightroom exported JPEGs look good on screen before publishing them or sending to other people to make sure the color space change and compression haven't ruined the look. When I come to work and look at them on my office/commodity grade Dell 24" monitor, I am often pretty disappointed. The colors can appear clipped in some cases, muted in others. Contrast is much lower.

So, my question can I (or should I) take in to consideration the wide range of screens the image might be viewed on?

They claim it offers:
  • Industry's highest dynamic range
  • 1.2 times higher sensitivity than conventional sensors
  • Captures much wider angle of light at each photosite

Maybe they have a surprise for us in the next gen Fuji X camera.

Abstract / Bursting Balloons

Third Party Manufacturers / Zeiss 135mm f2 Apo Sonnar Preview
« on: April 22, 2013, 04:32:02 PM »
wow, wow, wow!

It does make me even more anxious to see what Sigma and this 135mm 1.8 OS might offer.

CR guy said to pay attention to the IQ out of the new sensor and here's a first look.

The ISO64000 images look really good to me, though there is a lot of NR applied.

I'm staying through Sunday and wondered if any other people from this board would be there.

I'll be shooting the city while I'm there and hope to make it up to Muir Woods for some photos as well.

Technical Support / I solved my own problem, but thought I would share
« on: December 07, 2012, 12:52:44 PM »
Last night I tried tethered shooting in EOS Utility with my 5D Mark III using studio lights and a sync cord. The strobes would not fire when using Live View. They worked fine through tethered shooting with out Live View.

So, I did some digging and found that under the Live View settings you have to set Silent Shooting to Disabled in order for the body to trigger the strobes. Why? No flipping idea.

Anyway, thought the info might help someone, so I've shared.

I realize this might be common knowledge already, but I had no idea.
