Site Information / Re: Moderators: You are Too Sensitive
« on: February 02, 2013, 11:23:54 PM »
Could not agree more, the karma thingy was removed as well due to thin skin of some.
We all should just start wearing uniforms with Canon logo on it, and act properly.
I have pretty good idea who is so sensitive up there, but hey we all live pretty much in the "new" brave world already.
Anyway, I have been seriously warned already in the past so this may be my last post.
Cheers.

Black & White / Re: Black and White Landscapes!

I am really enjoying this gallery, in case of B&W I guess some HDR photographs minus wired grayish, decaying colors are quite palatable. 
My is not an HDR in the sense of using HDR stacking software, it is one shot adjustd in PS.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Pentax FF DSLR for under 1499$ at release.
« on: December 04, 2012, 12:59:23 PM »
Would really hope so!
Beside Pentax, I can think of few other brand names that may have good chance to come back, if planned properly, especially because they often used others great optics.

If Sony was smart enough and kept name "Minolta" even if they have to somehow pay more (don't know the story behind) things may look bit different now for them.

Landscape / Re: Help Me Get Better - Crashing Waves - Round 2
« on: November 27, 2012, 11:52:25 PM »
love the 10-22.  just to lighten up the mood, here is a wave that hasn't crashed yet lol.  taken with the 10-22 REAL close.  no underwater housing.  camera moving with the wave firing away at 6fps.  I got drenched but the camera didn't :D

Wow!
Just wonder why do you have so much magenta in the left upper corner, is that color fringe or famous red noise, which may be the case because the same thing you can see on the lower right in the dark parts of the water with no contrast.
In case if this was produced by the 10-22 lens, you probably have a bad copy.

well, now you have me doubting that this was in fact the 10-22;   the no contrast in the water could be flare, and this could have been the 17-55, although the color fringing at the top of the wave is characteristic 10-22. 

as for the magenta itself, I suspect that is an artifact of heavy pp;  probably pushed the red sat slider too far. the colors were pretty wacked in post, so that the wave didn't appear too green and poluted :D

 :)
Depth of field seems bit to shallow to, you know, I have taped the focusing ring on that lens and using as fixed focus most of the time!
It has enough depth for regular landscaping work even at f5.6, the only problem is when I have to, very rarely zoom in, it needs small correction to the focus.

Canon General / Re: Photography websites. Where are you posting?
« on: November 27, 2012, 12:35:07 AM »
Have account for years with Smugmug, but after experimenting using someone else computer in the near by city, and seeing my stats not reflecting the true counters, I have posted big watermarks and waiting to see any of my photos printed somewhere without permission.... maybe, I will get lucky...
And for the FB users, my God get to your senses...

Very cool, thank you for sharing.

 Thank you, but you may get in trouble pricing me so openly... I am a "black sheep" around here, I dare to criticize canon :)
And to top it of (God have mercy) I hate HDR!!!

Here is another approach: some Rebel don't remember model with 10-22 lens @10mm, EwaMarine underwater housing, and not being afraid of water. That big blob was smashing in my face and camera just fraction of a second later. Maybe will post later when, I find the one "under" water and sand actually.

Please do post that!  Could you also tell us a little about any post-processing as well?

Here is something, I have found a primitive quick time movie made of sequential shots, no time to go through my files. Simple post processing, levels, color adjustment and contrast, don't remember the details. Taken during "Noel" several years back.

This was taken just some 50 mil south from your location.

Canon General / Re: Canon's MAP Pricing Goes Into Full Effect Today
« on: November 02, 2012, 10:49:29 AM »
5D III pricing soap opera just keeps going on... wonder what else could be done to put customers in the state of great anxiety and make them pay a truckloads for nothing.
Very amusing  :D

What a SHOCK!
Its just the beginning, or maybe they will start refreshing the entire product line just about soon, like next January?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Better dynamic range than my 5DIII
« on: October 03, 2012, 05:37:20 PM »
It's almost guaranteed that that was shot with a large format camera, possibly even using 8" x 10" film. If so, then it's to your 5DIII what a PhaseOne IQ180 is to a cell phone camera.

Cheers,

b&

Except that negative format has nothing to do with DR that OP is talking about.
