Here is another from the 7D II. re-sized, but otherwise, a .jpg right out of the camera with the V1 100-400 zoom.


That's a wonderful photo with great colors.

Great series. I especially like the first photo. Nice bokeh

1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx
« on: November 01, 2014, 02:02:15 PM »
I've been looking over the shots from the speedway. There are so many that I like! The old 1Dx was great for getting focus in poor light.


So here's one more from that night, last on this thread I promise.  ;D 

No quarter given by Tom W W, on Flickr


Another great photo!

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 7D Mark II Owners first thoughts

Picked up a Canon 7D mark 2 today. As a fight photographer using a Canon 1Dx, I am very happy with the camera and the results.

I used the camera with a Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L II at a Muay Thai demo tonight.
Menu system, ergonomics, using the camera, and the results were very familiar. Felt like I was shooting with the 1Dx.

Since Adobe doesn't have an update for the Canon 7Dm2 yet, I shot Raw to CF and Jpeg to SD, which slowed down the buffer a bit. Not sure if this is the same problem as the 5Dm3 where the SD card slot shortens the buffer (if I remember correctly). I'm used to the 1Dx 32 RAW buffer so the difference was new to me.

Here's a Jpeg sample straight out of camera (added watermark). IMO, it's quite good for a jpeg.
The Canon 7Dm2 is definitely a good backup to my 1Dx. I can still comfortably shoot weddings and events with this no problem. I can see why Scott Kelby likes this camera so much.



@3200 ISO it is not bad. Not bad at all. Was NR in camera applied?

I turned off NR.
Thank you for your answer.
I like the result @3200
btw, great photo!

Wish I could visit places far and wide but I'm pretty much stuck in western Canada.  But why complain, right?

Lovely photos from all over.

Right! I dream to go to Canada and make some shots like you and dpc do. Just wonderful landscape you have in Canada!

... and they rode off into the sunset, together, at last.

I love a story with a happy ending!  :)


So do I
As a 6D owner, I knew it would be a happy ending  ;)

Lenses / Re: DO you correct lens vignetting when sot wide open??
« on: October 30, 2014, 02:37:03 AM »
Yes. It is part of my standard workflow as I use a lens-preset that care of it. The lens-preset is automatically loaded upon opening the the photo.
However, there are photos in which I think - personal taste - the vignetting is adding something. Then I re-apply the vignetting through another preset.
