85mm @1.2 here's two more

Gary, those are some beautiful shots of a beautiful woman. Well done.
Just don't understand the tattoo.

beautiful photo and woman!

keep your hopes up high and keep your head down low (stay out of harm's way)
I read it. It's like Jack says.

Crumpler has some nice choices:

I bought the Crumpler Jackpack 1500 Dark Grey

DidnĀ“t read whole thread, but it would be nice to have the option - you look into viewfinder, it scans your eye, and lets you store data on memory card (for next time chosen)..
Why a camera and viewfinder.....
You look with your eye...and it store a still or a video instantly in the cloud. With an eye-lens you can zoom-in and zoom-out....now THAT would be something.... ;)

Lenses / Re: Something with 50mm L lens that make it different
« on: July 18, 2014, 05:18:47 AM »
i was comparing image taken by 50mm 1.2 L vs 1.4 version.
There something about the image produce by 1.2 L that makes it Wow factor for me.

Like it has something to do with the color and amount of sharpness and gradient balance of depth of field.

Can someone give me insight what the hell is it im liking with the 50mm 1.2 L?

Did you not just mentioned it yourself....."the color"....."gradient balance of depth of field" (bokeh)
And...sharpness...I assume that is center sharpness since corner and extreme corner are softer due to 1.2

Nicely done Fuhrtographer.

Thanks Click, here are a few more.

Very nice photo. You need to shoot it again - if possible - but in autumn. I think the green leaves of the tree are a bit overwhelming. Colored leaves from autumn should give a nice sphere

I try to understand this subject.
It makes sense to lock your mobile since it contains a lot of private information - like contacts (some people store a lot of add. info with those contacts), social media, photos, email etc

Your camera.....it has a memory card with photos only. Let's say the camera get stolen. The thief will open the memory card slot and has access to the photos. A pincode does not prevent it.
A pincode that prevent the use of the camera? You think that the thief will bring it back? He may throw the camera or try to sell it for parts. But you will not get it back.
A thief knowing that stealing this kind of camera doesn't make sense because it has a pincode? Most will not know that and try to steal it anyway.

Even if you have a pincode (or fingerprint scan) it doesn't bring back camera or photos. Yes, photos...it would make sense to encrypt the storaged photos so a stranger would have difficulty to access them. But encrypt photos while they get stored on the memory card will slow down the burst speed - not something we want.

A good insurrance will help...(not bringing back your photos though)

Lenses / Re: Tamron lenses --> annoying zoom ring
« on: July 18, 2014, 03:41:46 AM »
Hi guys,

i got my hands on some Tamron lenses recently, concrete the 24-70mm, the 70-300mm and the 70-200mm VC. And there is an issue, i want to talk about: the zoom ring. What's bothering me is the fact, that the zoom ring isn't close to the camera, it is switched with the focus ring and sits at the far end of the lens now. So i've got to stretch out my left arm way more to reach the zoom ring. I'm uncomfortable with it, because in my feeling it is much less stable than if i grab the zoom near the camera. Furthermore the focus ring sits so close next to the zoom ring, i nearly turned it too, when i grabed and turned the zoom ring.

I thing, the tamron lenses are totally interesting, but there issues are really bothering me.
What about you? Did you have any concerns about the arrangement of the rings on your tamron lenses, especially when you were coming from the canon counterpart? How did you deal with it? Or was it never disturbing for you?

Thanks for your answers.

I own the Tamron 24-70 and some Canon. Including the 70-300L that is different from the other Canon lenses in regard of the zoom ring. I know my lenses and got used to the differences among them. I enjoy too much of the quality of those lenses (those that are different) that the 'issue' with the zoomring did not drive me to sell them.

Here is a spectacular sunset I caught over NYC:

Sorry but I cant figure out how to put up a link to my image.

Just wonderful!
Is that the 16-35 f/2.8 II or the new 16-35 f/4?

17mm TSE...it was almost dark...very hard to set the lens tilt, etc. 5DIII is amazing!

How many exposures did you take? 3?

I think I shot 7 exp.  to preserve the highlights around that back door....the image is misleading due to the sensor's ability to record near darkness in the foreground compared to the bright highlights of the sun around that back door.
The dynamic range was extreme.

Well done!
Did you use photomatix?

Lenses / Re: 16-35 F/4L IS -- Canon registration, ACR profiles, etc.
« on: July 15, 2014, 03:25:05 PM »
I emailed Canon Professional Services (CPS-USA) and they replied that they had notified the responsible party to update the registration and CPS site, but had no ETA.  DxO has listed 8/14 for their correction module - if Adobe keeps their schedule, their next update will also be in August, with a release candidate coming sooner.  We won't know if the profile will be in the release until the RC appears.  I would expect ptlens to have the first profile, DxO next, then Adobe, which is usually the order they seem to release correction profiles.

Strange that it takes so much time.
I registered mine some time ago.
Which country is that?  The USA site is a little different.
This is CPS Europe accessed via The Netherlands
