I use smumug, it's great! They 3 options, one free and two paid.

If you put magic lantern on you camera, there is a option for shutter count.

I really hope they bump AEB up to 7  with +/-3
5 as an absolute minimum though

I second that, HDR is a thing for me now... I think Trey is right that HDR is the way forward, done right that is and not looking like a surreal mess

Buy 1 series body. Lol, it is not me. That is how it works in canon world.

There is always Magic Lantern. It's easier to use then you think. I put it on my 50D just because I wanted to try out the video on it for the heck of it, and was quite impressed with all the other features.

In terms of the price, 3,500 for Canon, and 3,000 for Nikon, how may first time camera buyers are going to consider either of these two models? Probably very few.

The average person buying this is already going to be a Canon user, and have glass, speed lights etc. While an extra 500 is money no one wants to spend, most people realistically will not sell everything and switch to Nikon.

The only thing I can see the dual CF/SD cards useful for is, I can shoot raw to the CF and then jpegs to SD, and use a eye-fi card. I get the raws for my use, and directly upload the jpegs to the web for my family to pick through.

Curious about FPS/buffer when using both cards. I assume it will go down.

I want to know about ISO performance and DR.

A little disapointed at the price, I was really hopping to spend a max of 3,000. I'll have to wait and see what the reviews say (and think of a way to explain the price to the misses).

Time to start praying for the Yen to rally against the dollar..............

That should be Mountainsmith Parallax Pro. Can't edit a post for some reason.

The Tascam DR-40 is really nice for the price. I managed to pick it up for a super deal at Guitar Center for 150 with a free microphone and headphones to boot. (They where crap, but free is free).

Software & Accessories / Looking for a new bag/backpack
« on: February 15, 2012, 10:07:32 AM »
I’m looking for some suggestions on bags/backpacks. Currently I’m using the Lowepro Fast Pack 350. I’m currently at capacity and plan on a new body and a lens or two in the near future.

What initially attracted me to this bag was the laptop sleeve, and the fact that it also has an area that is not all padded for carrying what ever you want. The one thing I really dislike about it is the lack of ability to easily carry a tripod.

Here is what I am currently carrying:

50D w/ grip
24-70 2.8 L
70-200 2.8 L IS II
50 1.4
28-135 IS
18-35 EF-S
Speed light 430exii
Misc other stuff, chargers, cords, etc.

I plan on getting what ever the 5D mk iii ends up to be, another speed light, and another lens or possibly two.

I’d like a backpack that can easily carry all of that, with a laptop spot. Anyone have any good suggestions for under $ 200.00?

Thanks in advance!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Does FF make your photos pop?
« on: February 12, 2012, 09:20:48 AM »
I've been watching this form, as I feel the same way about my photos from my 50D (I have good glass, 50 f1.4, 24-70L f 2.8, 70-200L 2.8 IS II). Although I do realize most of the poor results are just due to me not having anywhere enough time (One kid under two and another due in 3 weeks will do that to you...) to practice shooting to get it down to the level I want.

I've already decided my next cam will be FF, most likely be what ever the 5D mk III ends up to be. I've noticed that a lot of people talked about the effect that PP has on the photo. Anyone care to share some tips/pointers/links to some good PP resources? I feel that I know my way around Lightroom pretty well, but always struggle to get the results I want from it. Even starting PP with photos that I feel are pretty good, I tend to spend far time much time screwing around in LR with sub par results.

I'll put it this way, it usually takes me so much time to do PP that I'm several months behind in uploading pictures to my website.

I assume it all comes down to get it right in the camera, and then less is more in PP?

EOS Bodies / Re: The Price of Full Frame

Anyone have any idea on the actually manufacturing costs of a full frame chip vs. a c size? Other then one being larger then the other, I would have to guess that the technology can't be all that different.

I just want a FF with decent DR and ISO performance for under 3,000. Anything 15-22 MP would be fine with my needs.

I want better ISO performance more then anything, even 100 ISO on my 50D is just crap in my opinion.

Interestingly absent on all of these rumors is what bodies will be weather sealed and how much weather sealing they will have. While not something I really need, it may be a easy way for Canon to break models into different segments.

What about the posibiliites for capturing video to an extranal drive? Seems like it would be good for that.
