Lenses / Re: Canon EF 11-24 f/2.8L Coming [CR1]
« on: August 07, 2014, 03:15:18 PM »
"11" to 24mm???  I find that hard to believe...but it is supposed to be the "Year of the Lens"!!!
Cool....I just sold my 16-35mm f/2.8L II to finance (even steven) the new 16-35mm f/4L IS ..which is FANTASTIC.
Looks like I just missed the rebate drop so I got top dollar for my f.2.8L zoom!!!   ;D ;D ;D
...and if there is any truth to this new UWA zoom lens rumor...the price is just not a place I am willing to go for an
UWA..although I bet the UWA if real, will REALLY finally KICK A$$!!!
I just do not see the lens having an 11mm focal length at the low end???????
I see that the rumor is only rated at CR1
According to the rumor rating page on this site:
CR1 – The source is probably a 4 legged animal of some kind.
I did not write that!!! CR did...LOL!
...but I guess we should take this with a grain of salt (or perhaps snausage).

Business of Photography/Videography / Re: Who owns the photo?
« on: August 07, 2014, 02:47:39 PM »
I think that the black crested macaque owns the photo....I have always said anyone taking shots off an LCD screen and not a viewfinder is "monkeying and image".  Our furry friend obviously thought so, too!!!!!! He looks like Steve Huff doing another selfie!!!  ::)
(all kidding aside I think if the black crested macaque cannot own the photo, then the photographer who owns the camera certainly does. Right???).

You could get good light like this very early for your image or..on a translucent cloud day may work for ya...it always a matter of serendipity and I have found obsession and perseverance helps.....

The pin is pretty close to the stone, no more than a few rows off one way or another.
So many Valiant Warriors there, still proudly in formation even in death.

I don't want you thinking I have no photos of the site yet, I do have several. Just none since it's most recent and final changes that were near to finalized when I was there last.
It is a long drive, an emotional visit both personally and patriotically.


WOW! I learned something this morning....I did not know that there was such a thing as a Photographer's Ephemneris (gazoontite!).  That is really cool.   I bookmarked that ....looks like you have it covered.  Taking a photo could ad some joy and some artistic pursuit for your journey...

Infared, have you tried dual ISO in MagicLantern? If not, you should. There is a LR plugin for it too.

rpt, no...I have read about it...but I am just not willing to load up the software on my $3000 camera...call me a fraidy cat...but  it is what it is.  I know that people swear by ML, though......Maybe I will get brave one day!  :P

Well...Tolusina...thanks...and I was just lucky enough to have a window for light and good post production software!  :P
..also the low DOF that the Canon 85mm f/1.2L offers....
You could get good light like this very early for your image or..on a translucent cloud day may work for ya...it always a matter of serendipity and I have found obsession and perseverance helps  :(....but if I keep in mind I am doing this to have fun...it all works out!!!!

Here is another one from the Silk Mill....

I know that this is a beta test...but I am actually selling this lens on eBay (not as an auction item..just sale) and will offer it here at a discount and purchase by PayPal ONLY. Paypal offers a level of security in an online transaction.  If you are interested I can also point you to my eBay page and you can see that I have an excellent history as a seller and as a buyer there, i.e. I have great internet credentials for buying and selling.   

This sale is for:
Zeiss Distagon 21mm f/2.8 T* ZE lens for Canon EF
Factory Box and all paperwork that shipped with the lens.
Zeiss Factory Metal Lens Hood
Front Lens Cap
Rear Lens Cap

Price: $1459.00
Shipping: $16.99

This is an excellent copy of the incredible Zeiss 21mm.
I bought the lens new and was the only owner. I purchased this lens in the USA from a reputable Zeiss Dealer. The lens was used and stored with great care.
The lens is virtually spotless. There are no marks on the front or rear element.
(See Photos)
The front element was behind a protective filter for the entire time that I owned the lens and is in pristine condition. The lens is clean with no spots or fungus.
The lens was used very lightly. It is an extremely sharp copy.
If you are into incredibly clean WA images with excellent contrast this is the lens for you.
The lens cap has a few scratches on it (see last photo), but that is about it for flaws here.

Any questions please contact me via the forum message board  and I will do the best I can to answer them.

Site Information / Re: Critiques
« on: August 06, 2014, 10:41:58 AM »
I like real criticism from a source that I value.
i.e. I have to know, and respect the source.Its ok to have something to ponder on the next outing... ...and even at that its all relative anyway.

Funny small town story.
  There was a local photographer that had won a contest with or had  an image published locally..can't remember exactly...but anyway..he had a image that got praise. 
He went to a little art store (yeah, they are all gone) on the main drag where he had been asked to hang images in the window, but there was only so much room. The proprietor, who did not know of the notoriety of the above image perhaps,  past it over and requested other images of his to be hung. Upon which the photographer got very annoyed that she had not chosen his "prize-winning" image for the window, she must be a fool and gathered up all his work and left in a huff.

Criticism is a dicey prospect.  I found that it was very brutal on me when I was young and new...
...but now if I like one of my images I don't give a Flying F what anyone has to say...  LOL!!!!
They can enjoy it or enjoy not enjoying it.   :-)

'nother one.

I love mine...
Even put up my 21mm f/2.8 Zeiss on eBay this weekend... Hate to let that go...I needed it when I had the 16-35mm f/2.8L II. The Zeiss just blew that lens away... but not the new UAW zoom.
 I really do not need the f/2.8..and the IS is just what the doctor ordered for most of what I shoot.
I know that is not true for everyone.

That's where mine is heading, and for the same reason.

Please wait until I have sold mine. LOL!

Canon General / Re: What is your Least Used Piece of Gear?
« on: August 04, 2014, 02:47:23 PM »
My brain.  :o
ROFL!
 ;D ;D ;D

For me it is the intervelometer. 0 uses in a year and now ML has that built into the firmware.
Other than that, it is the 40 shorty... Somehow the 24-105 seems to be the lens of preference for me.


A little humor is necessary. My second least used piece of gear is my G.A.S. Plug!!!!  (please refer back to my 1st least used piece of equipment!).  :P
