I do believe it is nothing exciting. Maybe language translation fix or some rare bug.. ::)

It is difficult to shoot a fast moving boat while being on a boat
f/7.1, ISO 100, 1/400 @105 (IS)
New Castle (Tyne)


EDIT: actually, this is my first and only shot at this boat. Anyway, I was with my family and they do not allow me to stay too long for multiple shots. So, most of my shots are f-t-r (or not  ;) )

It is not a big issue to me. I just did not have another way to address them. Now I do and I sent them my support request. Thanks

I would purchase the 200-400 simply because I like the flexibility of zoom. It woul be a wonderful addition on my 70-200

I zoom with my feet. ;-)

................


Good one  :)


Somtimes zooming with feet may result in causing the subject to fly/run away because you step on branches (by accident) With the zoom you can sit in the same position, rotate with the gimbal and zoom close and further away (even add the 1.4 ext)

EOS Bodies / Re: Is Dual Pixel Tech Coming to the EOS 5D Mark III?

It is an extra-cost option available for de C100

I doubt it will be avaliable for 5D MK III like that. Not many would pay extra to use it for the 5D MKIII
It may come by default in the 5D MKIV

Software & Accessories / Fail to contact support Reikan (Focal)
« on: March 07, 2014, 07:32:51 AM »
I wonder if just I have this problem.

I use the web-form to contact Reikan support
After I have filled in all the required information I press 'Send'
The errormessage: "Failed to send your message. Please try later or contact the administrator by another method"

I have tried this form now several days. It doesn't work
Does anyone know another way to contact them?
Thanks

I want to register my 6D in the Reikan License. But the software crashes. I am using Focal Pro v1.9.5w on windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Well, I explained my wife that it is very common to purchase a lens and then after a while sell it to purchase another ....or two  ;)
With the camera....I take the camera bag ....empty.....going on a shoot returning home ....with a camera....


Boy I feel bad while writing it down..... :-[


The first sign of recognizeing I have a problem.....my name is candyman and I suffer from G.A.S.


Welcome to the like minded citizens/sufferers club ;D


Thanks.
Well, I try to make it up to my wife so I surprised her with a mini-cruise to the UK. That makes me feel less bad  ;D
That's a tried and tested trick ... a few days before I buy a new lens/camera, I buy her a new iPhone/laptop (my last lens purchase got her the iPhone 5S) ... if my gear is "expensive", I usually take her out on a holiday and/or some necklace ... that usually takes care of any guilt (on my part) and/or questioning from the wife ;D


 ;D ;D ;D
