Pricewatch Deals / BuyDig
« on: December 01, 2013, 10:08:50 PM »
Hey, Wondering if anyone has experience buying gear from BuyDig.  I have purchased most of my gear through  B and H or Adorma, but seeing the Black Friday deals, am tempted to order the 100L macro through BuyDig.  Any good or bad experiences would be helpful.  Is the fact that it shows up on the price watch a tacit endorsement?


Software & Accessories / Noise in Lightroom vs DPP
« on: January 25, 2013, 03:43:51 PM »
I have a problem:  I have a 5dIII but have been totally dissatisfied with the amount of noise in the photos despite hearing others with the same camera rave about how they can push the ISO to 12800 without a problem.  Today, for the first time, I opened a file with DPP and noticed the noise level is dramatically less than seen when using Lightroom.  To date, my workflow has been to shoot in raw and import directly into LR as a DNG (todays shots were imported as CR2 as DPP does not appear to read DNG.)  Both of the attached shots (100% crops) have no noise reduction applied and equal amount of sharpening.  My prior camera, a 20D, did not seem to have this problem.
Any thoughts?  I have spent a lot of time and effort learning LR and don't relish the idea of having to master DPP.  Do I have to import with DPP and then move to LR to edit?  If so, how do I do that?  Is there a setting in LR that I am missing (btw, version 4.3)?  Thanks!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Noise

Using my 5d3 I seem to find the noise is higher than i would like or expect. I have seen others post that they have low noise with ISO as high as 10,000.  Honestly, it doesn't look a whole lot better than my 20D.  I am shooting with low ISO, anywhere from 100-400 in raw format.  Importing with LR as DNG in case that is important.  Any thoughts?
