Well, here we are almost two months later and the site still does not update.  I tried all 3 browsers..... Firefox, Internet Explorer and Chrome.

It only changes when something new is posted by CR.

This is getting really old.  :(

I can't believe I actually read this entire thread.  I have to get a life.  :(

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: EOS-1D X Firmware Version 2.0.3 Released
« on: January 09, 2014, 01:01:52 PM »
Still no clean HDMI. That's it!! I am selling this overpriced camera! Nikon D4s next! ARROGANT Canon!

And please consider this Canon:  Not all who own the 1DX are sports idiots or ornithologists, some just want the best possible low light performance for their creative work!

I work and shoot in the dark (video and stills). And the 1DX has one stop ISO advantage over the 5D Mark III, and has way less color banding when lifting shadows than the 5D Mark III. But after Canon gave the 5D Mark III clean HDMI the advantage is less than before on video.It is certainly possible to give the 1DX clean HDMI, since the 1DC hast it. But Canon finds it more convenient to force me into selling my house to buy the 1DC, than to give the 1DX the same features as the Nikon D4 !!!

Enjoy your D4s.

Regards,
One of the sports idiots and ornithologists.

Stunningly beautiful portrait Harv. The pose is perfect and the light is amazing. I would put this on my living room wall.

Don, Henry's 'Clearance Sale' price is the same as Aden's and Vistek's everyday price.  Meh.  I wouldn't read too much into it.

I'll contribute some black bear images :) .......









These were shot with a 1DIII and 300/2.8L IS.  I had to back up to get them in the frame.

:D

Love the bears Harv!  Where did you find them?

South shore of Rice Lake

If someone is concerned about their sensibilities being offended, they should never participate on any internet forum.  Period.

Portrait / Re: Girl and Horse
« on: December 22, 2013, 03:51:33 PM »
Rename the shot, it should be called horse and girl ;)
The horse is main subject to me, it looks sooo satisfied with life. The girl is a suppoting subject. The story may be a bit carelessly told since the horse is darker than the girl and also not in focus, but in terms of expression the horse is telling a great story. As for the examplephotos from harv, They do not work for me. The horse is not connecting. The girl is ok in the first shot but is facing the harsh light in the secind so she has to close her eyes.

My advice to Hammar, use a larget dof . Its a two subject portrait and both should be sharp in this case. Advice to harv, start with finding good light and then try to get expressions from your subjects. And if I stepped on toes now, I did not mean to insult anyone. Keep on shooting horse-hunan portraits. And merry christmas :)

We don't always have the luxury of choosing the light, time and place.  There are times we have to make do with what is available.  In my particular situation, the time and place was a given.  I would normally look for nice diffused light if available but in this case I settled for what you see to avoid cluttered and distracting backgrounds.  I wanted a background I could throw out of focus for these closeups and that determined the direction in which I had to shoot.

I don't take any offense by your comments and understand you are trying to be constructive.  For that I thank you.  However, I don't agree with one of your comments.  I think the horse and girl definitely connect.  Again, we don't all see things the same way.

Merry Christmas.

P.S.   My apologies to the OP.  It is not my intent to hijack this thread in any way.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sony A7R shutter vibration problem?
« on: December 22, 2013, 09:54:30 AM »
But the Sony a7R has the best sensor available, which makes it a perfect camera. Everyone knows none of that other stuff matters.........   ::)

Neuro, you crack me up.   ;D

Portrait / Re: Girl and Horse

Personally, I think it's important to have both subjects in proper focus and to avoid harsh shadows such as we see on the girl's face.  This can be accomplished by simply repositioning the subjects.  Even in full sun.

Here are a couple of examples of what I mean.....





I offer this up as advice, not negative criticism so please accept it as such.
