i use a wacom for photoshop.

the touch feature is pretty useless for me, but once you get the hang on you don´t want to go back using a mouse.

thought it can take a few hours until you notice how much better a pen is.
it takes some time to get used to it.
I guess that is how it is...like with photography, driving a car....experience makes you able to control it better and better. I wil start with the webinar

A rep from Wacom is giving a webinar on Thursday, March 27, 2014 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM PDT.

Join Wes Maggio, Sr. Evangelist for Creative Products with Wacom for this fun and informative webinar as he demonstrates why a tablet is a critical element in a photographer’s workflow. An avid shooter and all around tablet guru, Wes will show you how a pen tablet can help bring out the true potential in your images. Whether you make the most subtle changes to your photos, or combine multiple images to create a stylized look, a pen tablet can give you a level of control that no other method can. Selectively apply adjustments, filters and effects with precision and control. Remove unwanted elements and retouch like a pro!

I use mine in LR5 for brushstrokes.  You can use it to replace your mouse entirely and use gestures to do lots of things but I haven't found reason to learn that yet.

Jim

Thanks Jim for your reply.

Does it mean that you use mouse and pen/tablet (thus you only switch to pen/tablet when working with the brushstrokes) or....do you use exclusively pen/tablet?
To use both seems logical but is that convenient?

Heron Combat (over a small tilapia)
Taken yesterday in stormy weather with 30 mph winds. 5D3, 70-200Lii, Tv 1/1250, ISO 1000, f/2.8
Harry was fishing with me when a younger intruder arrived. A small tilapia was caught and then the battle began. The fish got away and Harry chased off his rival. Poor light and fast action contributed to poor IQ and not sharp images, but I hope you like them anyway.

Third Party Manufacturers / Wacom Intuos Creative Pen & Touch tablet
« on: March 16, 2014, 01:27:43 PM »
About 2 weeks ago I bought the Canon 6D. With it, I got a full license of Adobe Lightroom 5 & Premiere Elements 12. On top of that I got for free the Wacom Intuos Creative Pen & Touch tablet.
Nice package deal.


Now, I just wonder what to do with the tablet. I never used a pen and tablet for post-processing my photos. It is really something different.


Do you use a pen and tablet for post-processing your photos? Can you share your experience in what is good and what is less good? Maybe there are huge advantages and I just need to get into it  :-\


Thanks

Primes are fine, but I wouldn't want to shoot a wedding without a 50 mm focal length.


Hi Sporgon,
I love to hear why? I am currently looking for adding 50 or 85mm and like to hear your arguments.

Space, distance and perspective are my reasons for this. 85mm gives a pleasant perspective but you need to be able to get far enough away. You also need more light one way or another to keep more depth of field. 35mm will result in an undesired perspective when used close; to reduce depth of field you're going to be very close = undesired perspective. In these situations the 50mm (on FF) gives you a pleasant, neutral perspective even when close, and you have good control over depth of field. That's why I say I wouldn't like to shoot a wedding without access to the 50mm focal length.

I don't know what you shoot or your style but I see you have the 135 so if deciding between a 50 and 85 prime, I'd go for the 50. You hear people say it's a 'boring' focal length because it doesn't give an exaggerated perspective either side of neutral, but I have found that relying on extreme perspective to make a picture good is a mistake.


Thanks for taking the time to write down your agurments. I appreciate it


I thought that when using the 50mm it would be too much stepping into the comfort zone of people. I used to own the sigma 50mm f/1.4 and used it on the crop (7D). I felt not comfortable with the 50mm on FF (besides the fact that the quality on the FF was less than on the 7D)

I think I must rent a 50mm (Canon or Sigma) and try it again.

Thought of starting this thread to talk about inexpensive non-electronic replacement accessories (as opposed to the expensive OEM accessories e.g. tripod collars, lens hoods, lens caps etc etc etc) that make our camera gear a bit more productive or just look cool. I thought of this as I just received 2 new White lens hoods for my EF 70-200 f/2.8 L IS II & EF 10--400 L IS lenses ... here are a few pics ... I already have the original black lens hoods that came with the lenses, but I kinda prefer the white hoods, that are found on the higher end Canon L lenses ... this is my "poor man's attempt" of trying to make my 70-200 & 100-400 lenses look like "limited/special edition" ones  ;D


Yes, it looks like a special edition  ;D
But is it limited? Where did you buy them?


I only replaced the lenscaps with the new canon lenscaps. I bought 5 costing 60 euros

« on: March 15, 2014, 10:28:11 AM »
How many days does it usually take for Reikan to respond to a filed support ticket?
My ticket was filed 8 days ago and when I login to check the status, no reply has been given and the status is being processed.


I guess they must be very busy

The 135mL is an excellent lens for street photography. And, not so strong presence unlike the white beast (200)


Some great shots you did here!
Thanks for sharing
