Canon General / Re: recover JPEG photos
« on: January 28, 2014, 04:22:23 AM »
Hi,
The one I recommend definitely works on a card that is formatted in camera, formatted hard drive on pc etc..

Cheers Graham.

do these softwares work if the cf card has been re formatted in the camera or only if they have been deleted?

It depends on the type of format you do in camera. The 6D provides an option of a "low level format" of a SD Card which writes zero values to the memory. The images are no longer recoverable in such a case.

If this lens is ever brought to the market, will it have a bulbous front element? and could that change with whether it is a f/2.8 or f/4?

It will be bulbous either way...that has to do with angle of view. The size of the element will change depending on f/2.8 or f/4. The front element is ultimately what's responsible for gathering the required quantity of light. The gargantuan Nikon 6mm fisheye could have been smaller if it wasn't f/2.8, even though the front element would have still been bulbous like that. The bulb is what allows ultra wide angle FOV, the diameter (or really, total surface area) is what affects total light gathering capacity.

Thanks for the information, I understand this now.

Users of the 17mm TSE have mentioned success with using some new filter holders. I hope using the filters on such a lens will be pretty much similar.

Another thought....can't you speak to your local CPS guy???usually they will help.

I have my doubts with the abilities of CPS in India but nevertheless, I'll try that and see what gives ... Maybe they can loan me one!

Thanks ... J.R.

That's a real shame you can't try one, I don't know why Canon don't push it more!!
Well I'm sure you'll love the 200-560 f4-5.6 (which is what it really is...!!) but I hope you aren't planning to carry it a long way!!

Don't know where you are geographically, I've lent mine to a few guys in Scotland and they've al bought them!!

I plan to carry it in my car for the long hauls and thereafter with a tripod (with gimbal) / monopod. That said, I think I need to hit the gym and work on my upper body, I might be able to use it handheld for more than a couple of minutes ;D

I'm based in India and the DO lenses are seldom seen here (at least I haven't seen any).

Thanks everyone for commenting. I've "convinced" myself that I "need" to get a 400mm f/4L IS for myself and so will be buying the 200-400mm f/4L IS later this March. I've given up my earlier plans (for now) for the 300 f/2.8L II and the 600 f/4L II in favour of the zoom. Versatility first and the speciality lens can follow later. 

I'd consider the DO lens but am just not convinced with it given that I cannot even try one in my country (nobody I know has this lens and it hopelessly out of stock with the Canon stores here).

Cheers ... J.R.

I wish it was f/2.8...

The price might go near $3000 for that...
I understand that.  ;)

I don't really understand that, but I expect that ... even if it is f/4 ;D

Just get the D700. If it your mind it has better IQ than the 6D and you can get it for half the price then it sounds like the way to go.

+1 ... additionally, sell the Canon gear you are using for video and get a camcorder.

My issue, and question is simply that I'm blown away that I need to buy the same gear to shoot a few sharp pics of my son!

That's all...

I don't understand why you need to get a FF if that is all that you are going to shoot.

If you do really want a FF, get a 6D, use focus with the center point and crop - with the high MP sensors these days, it works well enough for family photos (I don't suppose you are not going in for very large prints for what you say you are going to shoot).

Cameras are just tools, see what you are going to shoot and get the gear accordingly. For simple family photos, why not simply stick to the 70D ... the AF is good enough, isn't it?

sorry if I sound like a noob but what do you mean by a rectilinear lens?

Non fisheye

Thanks ... Sometimes this optical terminology gets incomprehensible for me.

3) Look for versatility at first and add specialty when you can afford it.

THAT, is some of the most sensible piece of advice ... +1

When you say exposing for the skin, what's the easiest way to do this?

Gee, that's basic Zone System stuff.

Not too sure that DSLR users these days learn the Zone system.

Lighting / Re: Advice needed for Elinchroms
« on: January 18, 2014, 09:03:13 PM »
Thanks a lot for the replies which has made things quite clear in my mind.

I have ordered the strobes and will give it a go with the manual mode for now even though it feels a bit above my head :) it's another steep learning curve I guess.

The FRX 400 is basically the 400w strobes made by Elinchrom in India. Getting these locally in india is costing me less than $500 which I feel is a good price :)

The dealer who is selling the Elinchroms told me that he would be getting a cheap 3rd party trigger/transceiver in the next 15 days which will be able to trigger the strobes as well as the flash ... Youngnuo perhaps! I'll let you know
