After the rocket blower, I use a Visible Dust Arctic Butterfly 724 Super Bright.
thanks for your reply! this seems like an okay tool to use. i'm going to give it a try and hope none of the dust is of the sticky type that needs wet cleaning.

Technical Support / removing dust from sensor
« on: June 15, 2012, 08:02:43 AM »
hi all,
i would like to have some tips/suggestions for removing dust from the sensor of my camera. yesterday i discovered some really annoying dust particles and so far i was not able to remove them with just a lens blower.

so i was browsing the website of my local camerastore and they sell these swaps. does anyone have experience with them? or would you suggest something else? if possible, i don't want to sent my camera to cps because it will be away for a couple of days. but i also don't want to damage my sensor. any advice is helpfull!

thanks!

Why the hell did a Rebel get this technology first and not a flagship camera like 1DX or 5D Mk III? As a 5DM3 owner, I would seriously like to know.
probably because it compromises the strength of professional camera's too much.

I hope it's true, the sooner they ship the 1D X, the faster I can make a choice between it and the 1D mk. IV. I'm eager to upgrade my 7D!

I bought a Clik Elite Escape this morning. It's a really nice and not too large (and not too small :P) bag wich holds my 500, 70-200 and a flash without a problem. There's enough room for food and stuff, extra clothing, a jacket, a tripod and even a camelbak! I'm really happy with it :)

i think you should calibrate your monitor. the colours of the original images look a lot better to me! you can adjust them a bit, but not as much as you've done now.

i don't know what you've done to the first image, but it looks out of focus to me. the original one has lots of nice details, the edited version has less. it's the same with the second image. also, what's the purple colour on the left side of the second edited image?

i like the last image the most. the way she looks and poses and what she wears, fit pretty good. nice job! but, the edited one is again a bit too much. it's a bit too red, the colours do not look right to me.

anyway, hope it's helpfull. good luck and have lots of fun taking pictures :)

so how good is the AF on the 1D mk. IV at f/8, for example with a 500mm and a 2.0 tc?

i'll probably buy a 500mm in the next couple of days and was researching for a successor for my 7D. either the 1D mk. IV or the 5D mk. III. as i figured, i can crop an image from the 5D3 to 16MP (it would have a cropfactor of 1.375) and would have about the same reach as the 1D4 (not including f/8 AF support).

i have not used the 1D4, neither the 5D3, but almost everywhere i read the IQ of the 5D3 beats that of the 1D4. so would a cropped 5D3 image be better (or equal) of that of a 1D4 image? i guess i should rent both camera's when i have the 500, to figure it all out :P

I talked to them about the f/8 issue and the answer was the same. It's because the way they have the AF points.

I guess that for what you do, f/8 AF is important. Do you consider it an issue or not? Considering the 1Dx will be a great camera. Can it replace your 1DIV?

The AF is lightning fast and just locks! I probably had about 3 images out-of-focus during my overnight used of the camera.

I still believe using a full frame for bird photography is not ideal even using a long lens like my 800mm. I'll keep my 1D MKIV and 5D MKIII for landscapes.

can you explain to me why? is it because of the lack of the cropfactor? or the more shallow DOF?
wouldn't a 1D X with a 1.4 extender almost be the same as a 1D mk. IV? (like in autofocus speed, image quality etc.)

Hi,

If you use a 600mm lens with a 1.4x TC attached to a 1D X, you’ll get 840mm at f/5.6 while with the same set up with the 1D MKIV is 1092mm at f/5.6 with an excellent AF performance.

You won’t be able to use a 600mm with a 2x TC anymore so that’s out of question. Same goes with the 500mm.
I truly don’t see a reason to sacrifice 252mm by using the 1D X.

In other words

600mm X 1.4= 840mm (1D X with a  1.4x TC – f/5.6)
600mm X 1.3= 780mm (1D MKIV – f/4) – No tele-converter attached.
600mm X 1.3 X 1.4= 1092mm (1D MKIV with a 1.4x TC – f/5.6)
600mm X 1.3 X 2= 1560mm (1D MKIV with a 2x TC – f/8) with a not so great AF. Single point.
800mm X 1.3 X 1.4= 1456mm (1D MKIV with a 1.4x TC – f/8) with a decent AF. Single point.

As you can see, a big difference.

Thanks!
i see your point, thanks for your quick reply!

like dawgfanjeff said, the bottle is not entirely vertical. and perhaps you can lower the output of the flash a little bit, so the top logo is still readable.

for the rest, i like the picture, with the ice and stuff. makes me thirsty. good job!
cheers from holland ;)
