I really enjoy my 16-35 f/4 IS but not yet enough (lack of time). I hope to go out in the weekend and do some landscape shooting  :)

Here's a 100% crop of a great horned owl photo taken 9 minutes before sunrise this morning.  I got better shots of the owl, but this was the first shot and it was a mere silhouette to my eyes.  The bird took off right after this shot to a nearby tree and I didn't think I had even focused on the bird until I got home and downloaded my photos.  I couldn't believe it!

f/2.8 1/160s, ISO 4000, EV+1, pushed ~0.25 stop in post, DxO Prime:

Wonderful capture!
I still dream of going out early and running into such wonderful subject.

Does DxO do anything special when it exports to LR? (I don't use LR so don't know what this is about). I just export DxO as a jpeg and then open with PS.

As far as I know - no (EDIT: except maybe applying some default LR5 profile settings if you have set so)
After you export to LR5, it opens automatically LR5 ready to do some adjustment in LR5

I have both DxO Optics Elite and LR 5 (I got it for free when I bought the Canon 6D)
I use DxO Optics always first (part for the lenscorrection - as Neuro says, it has a very good lens correction - easy to install modules). I like the NR as well.
I included the LR plugin and the DxO filmpack. This makes DxO even richer for postprocessing. I use LR as a second. Both great software.

EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: Canon 5 Layer UV, IR, RGB Sensor

A patent showing a 5 layer image sensor from Canon has appeared. UV and IR layers help with color reproduction especially for skin tones.</p>

New Patent here new Sensor there
New Patent here new Sensor there
New Patent here new Sensor there

Canon it is time to give us a camera(s) with this new technologies, let us testing how good it is  ;D

Hah! I agree. Canon has a lot of really good patents for camera sensors...they just never seem to apply them. I'd love to have a 120mp APS-H that can do 9.5fps...I really wonder why they haven't stuffed that wonder into an actual DSLR and just trounced all the competition.

But if they do, then what is next? After that it will be difficult to come up again with something revolutionary.
Look at cars. They develop a concept car and over the next three models you see technology & design from that concept car incorporated in the new models.

From a visit to the aquarium, well duh...

Through 40cm thick glass at 1.4, not too shabby IQ.  :P

Not bad at all.  That's awesome!


DOF and sharpness is pretty amazing at 200mm f/2.8 - call this extreme subject isolation!

It certainly is. Beautiful capture Dustin.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: D810!!!

The changes between the d800s and d810 are not insignificant


but neither at they significant enough to convince me to upgrade my stable of 800/e at this time.
The improved battery life is big. and the increased fps, AF, metering, etc.
And if the 64 ISO is real then maybe we'll see DxOmark results showing it a wee bit closer to 14 stops worth of DR at the pixel level.

The attached file was taken with the 300mm f2.8 IS II USM with the 2x extender, having used the old lens (as others have said) there is a noticeable difference in quality when using extenders. In good light the 300mm with the 2x is almost as good as a 500mm f4 - this is having used both simultaneously at the Leopard sighting.

Welcome to the forum.That is a wonderful introduction. Beautiful!
I see the 300 II is a marvelous lens.

Hello Ashran, that is a great series. Wonderful!

But this issue goes ALL THE WAY BACK to within the first few months of the 5DIII's release, right?  And the fix with black electrical tape?

It's the same advisory, Canon just updated the serial number range for affected cameras.

Thanks, Neuro.
Yes, thanks

1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx

Was at a Zoo with Rainforest theme. Went into were the bats were and it was insanely hot and humidity was ridiculous! I spent 15 minutes there before my 200 didn't fog up anymore, I stood on a small bridge where the bats flew by VERY close, could not use the limiter (3,5-∞). And it was a very small gap where they flew by. I tried every af setting possible and eventually had to limit my lower shutter to 1/4000s, resulting in very high iso. Think of it as throwing a rubber bouncy ball inside an elevator and try tracking it with a heavy tele. I was sweating like crazy and spent 30 minutes there before the wife and kids gave me the evil eye and I had to leave. It was the most difficult thing I have ever shot.

Must've shot 200 shots, with 80% of the bursts completely off, just too crazy, small objects, long focal and short dof to lock.

I liked this one the best.

Very nice!
Can be placed in the new BIF as well (Bats in flight)  :D
