Lenses / Re: Polarizers
« on: February 17, 2012, 07:17:50 PM »
As always, quality is expensive.
I have had a few cheap ones, but had serious problems with vignetting. Probably because they are significantly thicker then the slim versions from B&W and HOYA that I use.
On the 16-35 L the difference is just shocking. I don't know why the thickness of the glass has such an impact.

Hope this helps

Very much, thanks. (And to the others, as well.)

The cheap polarizing filters are a great value.  It's like getting two filters in one - not only do you get a polarizing effect, you also get a great soft focus effect that reduces the sharpness of your image and provides a soft glow around your subject, and you get that soft focus effect for no extra charge!!

Right on! ... sort of a Hypstamatic or Instagram effect for DSLRs!  ;D

I need a circular polarizer. Is there a significant difference in quality between a brand such as Hoya and the cheapies such as http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/rocketfish-rocketfish-58mm-circular-camera-polarizer-rf-cp58-rf-cp58/10149863.aspx?path=0cd349a4e6e972a7369ea352f73c4908en02?

Your landscape seems noisy with full of CA :)

Yeah, it's only a 196MP UltraCamXP... If they don't bring out the MKII soon- I'm selling all my glass and moving to Nikon...

If that's here, then I've driven past on  the QEW dozens of times and never realized the beauty close at hand. Thanks.

Maybe it's a dyslexic "Haaaaaa!!!!" ? 10 out of 1 CR posters share that affliction...

I think it's plenty easy to get photos that pop with a crop sensor camera.

If you want to see 'pop' in your photos, get a full frame camera.  It really is that simple.  After spending thousands on a new camera, you will immediately start seeing that pop, whether it's really there or not. Mind over reality - works wonders.   ::)

Depending on how many thousands one spends on a full frame camera, one might start seeing disco lights instead of pop :)
Or stars when your spouse sees how much you spent...

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Split? 5D X & 5D Mark III [CR1]
« on: February 09, 2012, 08:15:46 PM »
The one thing I've been failing to understand with all the 5D replacement spec rumors is why a high MP camera (be it a single model or one of two) would have anything near pro-grade AF. Normally AF is a huge differentiating factor between lines and would pump the cost up quite a bit, but any camera with high MP is clearly being marketed to a studio/landscape/macro crowd in which AF performance is far less important.
The aerial photography crowd needs pro-grade AF along with high MP.  :)

Don't discount other people's needs because they don't match your own, some people have a use for higher MP. My "serious" photography is aerial/realestate/recon. The ability to keep zooming in on an image for details that were unknown at the time of shooting is huge. Printing? Who does that? Pop the image via wifi for display on a 55" LED.

I know this wasn't exactly what you were looking for, but I couldn't resist.  :P


As for surfers... I used the 1DmkIV last Nov at the ASP Rip Curl in SF.  The 10 FPS bursts were pretty cool :).  Take a look if you like (www.jmhpics.com).  [... puts link to site ... expects noobs to flame him ... don't care  :)]

Loved the photos, especially the dog chasing the ball across the beach.  :)
