Along these lines, rule of thirds and such, I once heard a thing where they, who ever "they" are, studied what our eye is attracted to and in what order. 
It went something like: Brightness, Color then Dark. 
So our eyes tend to took at the brightest thing/area then the most colorful thing/area then the darker thing/area.  And if we can compose the shot around that we can keep the eye moving around the picture thus making a compelling photo. 
Like I said it went SOMETHING LIKE THAT. 

Is anyone familiar with this and am I even close in my recollection?

I think the key is going to be having a L lens with weather sealing. I'll bet you are good to go with that and a little care on your part.

Oh and I have to +1 what Chris Geiger had to say about sensor cleaning.  Knock on wood but 5D3 self cleaning is a little bit outstanding. ;D

5D3 70-200mm is L
iso200, 2.8,  1/1600, 200mm

Camera reset did the trick!!!  :D

Thanx  Mt. Spokane

So I updated my 5D3 with the new firmware and now I can't seem to select any focus point groupings other then: "Single-point AF.  I can move the Single-point AF around but I can only select the "Single-point AF" ( the little soft cornered square).  I have poured over pages 72-73 of the manual but nothin' :o

Am I the only one?

This helped me a lot. Great demo and explanation. 

I guess I don't know how to post the link but copy and paste this:

He does other video comparisons between: 5D3, D800, D4.  Yet other video reviews of 1DX also 1DC both way out of my price range but also worth a look.

I liked seeing what other similar cameras do - you get an idea of the range of what to expect.

Also known as "how good is your montior"?  ;)

I was wondering about that.  I normally have my monitor set to Adobe RGB, cuz' someone told me to-can't remember why.  But I changed it to sRGB because the color looked more saturated.  I don't have the patience to switch it back and try again :D

A perfect score, thank you very much 8)

I think this is an "In a Pinch" solution.
It worked for my 7d and a 10-22mm I had. But I have to agree Clean them proper when you get home.

I got the 27" 3TB Fusion Drive Fastest chip and all the ram i could fit.... and I haven't looked back.  Finally a FAST computer! Quick- quick like the wind! :o

When did yours show up?  I ordered almost a month ago and mine still isn't here.

I got mine on about Jan 5th.  But I preordered in December.
