Today's release addresses your issue.

Very nice shots all around. I'd bump the saturation on few of the shots but that's a personal preference. :)

Nice job with these elegant creatures... let's see them with this recommended adjustment.

HP LP2475w Read the reviews and see if you like it. It is industrial strength and provides excellent consistent colors and good angles of view.

This new RC seems to address most of the issues customers had with 4.O. We need to see if the speed issue has been addressed for those that felt the original and RC1 were not responsive enough. There is a great bonus with a new feature in RC2 that addresses color fringing. I tried the controls and I really recommend your testing of this.

EOS Bodies / Re: differences in color between Mark ii and Mark iii?

what little graph thing do you have in mind? My feeling is you shouldn't have to do that on something worth $3500 but I am willing to try. As for clients, yes you are right, most wouldn't notice it, but my business isn't built on putting out portraits that I would be unhappy with. Again, with Mark ii body, non of this is an issue. As a business owner, I would have to say right now, unless there is a fix for this, the Mark ii is for me a better studio camera. There.

You may be right. Perhaps I got used to that look, but I really like it, however our Mark ii bodies are beyond their expected lifespan and we have multitude of weddings contracted for the summer. It has always sold well for us with the look out of the Mark ii, not a lot of post processing. Either way I don't think the redness in blonde hair should be happening. Looking at fixing it. LR profile already did the trick. Now looking at getting it fixed and looking good out of camera.

These quotes are the reasons I was interested in your work as a busy business owner. It sounds like you are proud of the quality photos that allow you to earn your income and I would like to see the look that is selling and what you don't want jeopardize with the 5d III.

I am one that can afford a 5D III but  I don't think I am really good enough to benefit from all it offers - I am happy for now with my 40D. I am waiting for the mythical 7D II to maybe take the plunge. At any rate, good luck with your upcoming wedding season and in retaining the colors that sell well there. :)

Great lens - it is inexpensive enough for you to try it. The colors are beautiful and mine is very sharp throughout and fast!

mboss13 Please post a link to your business. I'm very curious about those clients of yours.

You think the posted images show a problem?  No one said the goal of the new Canon was to match your existing camera. I think the "5D III image" presented is more natural looking and shows a less intense red tint.

I now wish I had put a little bite in it. ;)

Lenses / Re: about 85L III

I really hope 85LII can be upgraded.
Not for the reason of its IQ, but its build quality regarding dust-proof, drip-proof, mechanical loose and front extension.....
If mk3 can solve some of these especially dust proof and loose...I shall buy it.
I don't expect to buy a L toy but has to worry about its build quality.

Maybe you have not used this lens yet b/c it is not anything like you describe. Try it you'll like it and I notice this is your 2nd post.

Street & City / Re: Etiquette of Street Photography
« on: April 24, 2012, 09:25:54 PM »
Street photography is one of the areas I enjoy - in particular photos of people - however I must admit I always hold back from taking the pictures I truly want to take because I feel nervous about taking photographs of the public.

For example, the other day I saw someone asleep on the metro so out came the camera, but I was paranoid that the guy would wake up or the passers by saying something to me.  My heart was beating and the adrenaline pumping - I just took one picture and hoped for the best.

When I looked at the photo afterwards, there were so many ways I could have improved on it if I wasn't in such a hurry.

I guess I'm unsure if we're allowed to take pictures so brazenly of the public (admittedly in public places).

Has it ever happened to anyone where a member of the public has taken offence to having their picture taken?

This is a subject which has bothered me for years, and I'd love to hear peoples opinions: Is there an etiquette to street photography?

Yes There are elements to street photography that could create a confrontation. I was once chased down Fifth Ave. in NYC by a homeless guy for apparently photographing a stray cat he said was his. It was hard to keep any dignity after that!

I think feeling comfortable with the area and having my equipment set for the shot are most important factors to making a shot that I will remember and want to keep. I concentrate on my breathing and quickly take the shot(s) with a smooth natural motion. For some of the shots, I preset the camera (usually with the 17-40 L) and take the image as I move towards the subject(s). For others with the 135mm L or 70 mm - 300 mm - F/4.0-5.6 I take my time and preset where I want the subject to cross the pre-focused spot. I sometimes feign shooting my wife and take my time on the subject I want. She is a great sport.

I have shot in all places but I like the subway because it is loud and I can position my camera on my lap or discretely away from my face and shoot away.

If people show they can't understand a simple posting mocking all the unnecessary attacks on Canon by writing misinformed angry responses then the solution is erase it? Interesting.

Bob, I removed the thread.  I thought it was a very good post and liked it, but it resulted in a flame war starting, so rather than spend the time to remove all of the responses, I removed the entire thread. (There would have been nothing left after removing all the name calling posts and those that repeated them.

Its a shame when a perfectly legitimate thread is brought down by the kind of comments it was provoking.

As to the paranoid comments about censorship, it doesn't happen.  Comments are removed because they are spam, trolling, or disrespectful to our members. 

Please feel free to repost, and please report out of line comments.

Thanks for the fair reply. I was just surprised at the disappearance especially since the flames were coming from people who entirely missed the point. No need to repost - just wanted to find out why... :)

Why are so many of the people reporting 5D III problems seem to be posting for the first time ever? It could just be an ongoing coincidence, but really.

As for threads being deleted, mods do that sometimes, but much more often I've noticed that similar threads are just merged together, so one or more seem to disappear but they really haven't.

I can assure you it is gone. Or do you think they merged today's "misunderstood mocking posts" (with four off base responses) together to save space?
