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.

Sometimes, the best opportunities present themselves close to  home and you pull over while driving


Just wonderful!
I miss those often because I don't have my equipment with me while travelling from and to my office. But I should!

BlueJays by NAVBPhotos, on Flickr

Have the 200-400 on loan this week and was sitting on my back porch watching the bluejays eat my deer's corn.... :)
Wasn't really paying attention to settings as much as enjoying a coffee/scenery so a little noisy (ISO 5000)


Wat an excellent capture. And what a great lens. Very thin DOF

Yes if I can get my other jobs out of the way I will post a couple of comparison shots from the 7Dmk2 & 5Dmk3. First I am heading down to the river for some action shots.

I like you signature  ;)

A photo of my 7DmkII

What are the first settings you plan to change? I turned the "beep" off first then set it to shoot only RAW.

My first photo was of a white orchid against a cream background indoors. All settings were on auto, ISO came out at 6400, F5.6 1/400, while it is a shot my 5Dmk3 could take with acceptable noise the 7Dmk2 could not cut it. However this is not my camera for low light I just wanted to see how it coped.

Using a Komputer Bay CF 128GB 1066x UDMA7 card I shot 28 RAW pictures before the buffer hiccuped. The battery is now flat but I have a second charging, when that is done I will head out to take some action shots.
Applause!
Can you post the pcitures later on?

Some wonderful shots here, here is one that I'm very proud of.



I had just started my walk around Hawley Meadows (Farnborough, Hants) when I saw a large shadow go in front of me on the ground. I look up and see this Red Kite circling me, quite low. I put my finger on the shutter and just kept taking pictures, hoping that at least one would come out OK, and to my surprise I got this very good result :)

Here is one attempt to combine sunset and fall colors...
Cool!

The sun's light show over the Cuyamaca's this last Sunday evening.




That's a beautiful photo!

I am trying to understand what the impact of this design will be for the sales of the 70-300L.
Because if it is light and the IQ plus AF same (or better) as the 70-300L, I will sell my 70-300L and purchase the 100-400MKII

Abstract / Re: Beautiful bokeh! Let me see yours!
« on: October 28, 2014, 12:55:59 PM »
Just these "poor man's workhorses" do fine in the bokeh department, IMO ...

1) 100 2.8 MACRO non-IS @ f/4.0
2) 70-200 4.0 L non-IS @ 200mm, f/8.0, near MFD

That Bee shot is awesome!  Seems like a pretty hard shot to nail.
Agree. Wonderful, well done!
