I have an event coming up and was wondering how everyone else takes names while taking candids at events. Is there an App for that? Or, should I just continue to carry a small notepad with me?

Thanks,

Andy

I remember when I was in high school 25 or so years ago and they had panning cameras for really high resolution for large groups like that. Heck, even the new iOS version on my iPhone has a panorama function.

I just bought a Lexar 800x 64Gb CF card from Adorama and put it in my 5D Mark III. I haven't taken it out. I've been transferring via USB, then formatting the card in camera before I shoot again.  Twice now, I've gotten corrupted files, and once a shot that I really wanted just disappeared as I was scrolling though the photos on the camera. This is the first Lexar CF I've ever bought. I've only shot with Sandisk up until now. I think I like Sandisk better.
I just returned two 32 gb Lexar cards to B&H. Got error 80 that locked up my cameras (5DIII and 1DIV) while shooting basketball. There is apparently a known problem with 32 gb Lexar cards and canon cameras. Glad to hear your 64 gb cards are working. I am going to stick with Sandisk from now on.

I added "Record func+card/folder sel" to my favorites menu on my 5DIII and 1DIV so I can switch to CF card quickly and easily. Yes, the 1DIV does the same thing.

Glad I put off getting this - waiting for the Mac version to come out. Just curious, are any of you that are having these problems using the Mac version?

Thanks,

Andy

Zenfolio for photos - unlimited uploads and easy to use. I don't use it for backup though, just sales. I have the $100/year plan. Photography is just a part time gig for me and this is all I need.

Canon General / Black Friday Deals
« on: November 02, 2012, 09:58:42 AM »
Hi Everybody,

I am in the market for a new 1DX or a 400 2.8 II. Is it reasonable to expect any deals on these high end items on or around Black Friday this year? Anyone get a deal on something significant last year? I am willing to wait for the possibility otherwise I might start now looking for used.

Thanks,

Andy

5D MK III Sample Images / Re: Moonbow!

Beautiful!

According to Wikipedia, it's not really a moonbow, but a halo around the moon produced by ice crystals in cirrus clouds. I still think it's beautiful, screw you Wikipedia! :P

It's a halo ween ;D


Great! - wish I had thought of that!

I am starting to think the green streak is a meteorite - I think I am going to play the lottery today.

Andy

It rather looks like a landing Reptilian spaceship. It's even more rare than a meteorite, so bid double pot today. :D
Andy, lovely picture. What were your settings? I tried taking one 4 years back with my 300D and failed miserably :P



And I agree with marekjoz, definitely an alien ship   ;)

Thanks  - I used my 5D Mark III    TS-E 17 mm    f/4.0    5 sec    400 ISO for the one with the meteorite the other was the same except ISO 800.

No Photoshop here - I was just starting my morning run and noticed this. I quickly ran back inside and grabbed my camera. I have heard about them but never noticed one this spectacular!
Andy
Is there a hot pixel up there ?

I don't think so - the white spots are stars. I will take a closer look tonight to make sure - didn't have a lot of time with it this morning.

I wish the 1DX would start dropping at that rate . . .

Hopefully they will get this out for the 5DIII as well.
