Had a chance to shoot some pictures of my grandson playing in the yard today. I liked the expression and the sharpness on this one. 200 f2, ISO 500, 1/1000 sec. @ f2.Beautiful photo,handsome young lad
Expensive hobby this photography lol getting the 2x tomorrow so hopefully i will be satisfied for a while,but i better stay off here lolEdward, you forgot the 400 f2.8L IS II in between the 300 and the 500 ...
Your right, how could I have forgotten the 400, owned 2 of them, it's a definite sickness.
Holding on the Phase for another month, give Canon a chance to release a 45MP 1D, Ha Ha Ha.
1DxQuality portrait gary i just love my 85 1.2 since getting it,it always seems to stay mounted on my 5dmk3 for some reason though.
85mm @ 1.2 using 4 flash's main light was a beauty dish with double sock and ND filter
f 1.2 1/200 ISO L I Love this Len
it's not used to much with flash @1.2
but does' a wonderful job
Beautiful shot bornshooter
Thank's click,a wee bit of beginners luck today but i will take it haha.
When trying to shoot them in flight i found it really hard to keep my point on there eyes,so used one point with 4 surrounding points but still a real challenge but i like that .Any tips would be very much appreciated
Congrats on the purchase. You should check out the link below on setting things up for birds in flight (whilst it's for the 5D3, I guess the 1DX will allow identical settings). The tip on having a home focus point linked to the rear AF button and another region dealt with by the main shutter button is genius.
I'll give things about 10mths before you decide you need more reach (unaided by a TC). Start saving now!
Went to the park for an hour to test the new lens,i have never shot birds or anything but got one i was happy with especially as i am a total noob at this lol.
Nice picture, Bornshooter. The bird is not as sexy as the girls from Glasgow, but it is still good to look at. Gave me something for the head... Now that you have a 300mm F2.8 could make pictures of a show even away from the stage, right? Could you make some pictures of "Jonna Löfgren," drummer of the band Glasvegas. I'm a big fan of the band, and I feel a thing for womens who wear glasses and play drums.
lol i can see what you mean after today,will go with my L lens sicknessWent to the park for an hour to test the new lens,i have never shot birds or anything but got one i was happy with especially as i am a total noob at this lol.wonderful shot but be warned shooting birds in flight is a sickness
Thank's 1st timer Sporgon this was cropped quite a bit,waiting on the 2x coming next weeki have never shot birds
Oh yea ?
Good shot !
Thank's northstar,i had a blast out shooting something different,it was refreshingWent to the park for an hour to test the new lens,i have never shot birds or anything but got one i was happy with especially as i am a total noob at this lol.
you did great...very nice!
Beautiful shot bornshooterThank's click,a wee bit of beginners luck today but i will take it haha.
Oh i hope you are wrong,but i know you are right lol these damn L lenses.I wouldn't mind a high megapixel body too but then theres the storage issues i guess but at least thats getting cheaperOrdered my 1st big white today,its the baby one though the 300 2.8 L 2 super excited also ordered the 2x extender as the results i have seen from that are impressive.
Congrats Bornshooter, it's arguably the sharpest Lens I feel Canon make, don't go many places without mine, incredibly good with the 1.4x, it's the only Lens I use the 2x on, still good results with the 2x.bornshooter, that's great news and I'll guarantee you won't regret this purchase, not a chance! It's so hand-holdable and fun as opposed to a struggle.
Jack is sort of right, in my own hopeless experience the 200f/2 leads to the 300f/2.8 leads to the 500f/4 or 600f/4 leads to the 200-400f/4, you get the picture. I'm now considering seriously the Phase One IQ250, only thing holding me back is I know as soon as I buy it Canon will release a 1Dxs with 45MP sensor that shoots @ 4fps, then I'de shoot myself.
