Any chance you guys could show just a little humility and remember we’re not all privy to the American advantage  >:(
Any chance Adorama would open up shop in the UK please  :'( :'( :'(

Yeh but it's only DR that matters ::)

Lol popcorn at the ready…. I just love a good ‘debate’ about a camera I’ll never be able to afford or need…… just imaging all those pros being laughed at now, what were you all thinking ;D ;D ;D

mmmm..... I'm not a pro nor make money out of photography in any way but I'll be sure to read the small print now, thanks for the warning!
Great photos can be blurry or sharp, and the news worthy ones are often taken by amateurs who happen to be in the right place at the right time.  Their impulse is to share a photo by posting it immediately, not realizing its worth a lot of money.  If you post it on Flickr, as long as you have your copyright attributes set, you are covered.  Canon though wants you to turn over the rights to them.


If it does indeed turn out to be like US canon gateway library in that regard then it is unacceptable, I may join just to make that point. These things can be changed by pressure I remember the furore when Google Chrome was first released.

DPP to do the basic RAW (and aberation corrections if required) then Photoshop for everything else.
I too believe that nobody will know better that Canon how to process RAW's. Having said that Canon didn't exactly cover themselves in glory with the 5D3 release and DPP but I'm never going to be an early adopter.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Manual Mode T2i with auto ISO
« on: October 02, 2012, 05:17:30 PM »
Is it correct that this limitation (I also have this issue with the 500D) has been fixed in the 7D through a software update only?

Yes. But given that your camera has already been replaced (three times over now), I would not expect an update for you.  :(  The 7D firmware update seems to be something of a stop gap, since Canon is not yet ready to release a 7DII.

 :'( :'( :'( :'(
A well, still it's got a great little (under-rated I think) sensor

Lenses / Re: 6D kit lens 24-105 F4L or 24-70Mark 1
« on: October 01, 2012, 04:11:34 PM »
I’d be looking to get the 24-105 a kit lens at the reduced price is always a good deal and the 24-105 has such a good walkabout range but here’s the thing I’m not sure about and the reason I’m looking forward to the 6D being tested, I believe that the sort of people that will be considering the 6D are F4 lens buyers not F2.8. My understanding of the AF on this camera is that the centre point only works at it’s best at F2.8 + (if that’s wrong please please correct me!) so given that the kit lens is F4 I really hope AF testing is done with F4 lenses.

Maybe it's the 1Dx that's causing Canon all the trouble at mill and the 5D3 is propping the company up........ good grief  :o

Anyways this thermal cooling thingmibob, does that mean if I put my camera in the fridge to cool it down before taking pictures I'll get less read noise? brilliant! :P

........ and there was me thinking read noise was something that happend when your wife is reading 50 Shades of Grey  8)

jrista - Thanks for your very long and detailed reply the time you took is most appreciated

From way back in my film I've been used to bracketing (around what I believe to be the correct exposure) simply for insurance so I've been very laxed in my use of the histogram, well thats my excuse  :P anyway going to put my learnin head on and go for it!!  ;D

Best Regards

jrista…. I really want to thank you for this topic and the other fascinating posts over the last days regarding DR, the debate has I think on the whole been excellent. I don’t even begin to understand the science being discussed hell I don’t even know what ADC stands for but I do get your point « Reply #95 on: Today at 01:33:15 PM » you don’t need to be a scientist to understand that.

Anyway to my question(s) I’ve read many times about exposing to the right but have been reluctant to try it as I would prefer if anything to expose to the left to lift my shutter speed and reduce camera shake. I’m just amazed by the example you posted though so I want to try this for myself. I understand that once a highlight is clipped it’s gone so therefore simply setting exposure for a dark area and letting the highlights take care of themselves (over expose) isn’t enough. Is the easiest way to do this in a fast changing situation to bracket say 0, +1, +2 or +1, +2, +3 and use the highest non-clipped file, is the histogram the best way to do it or is there another way?
Also when you talk about amazing highlight recovery in Lightroom 4.1 with -4 EV exposure correction and 60% highlight recovery what would be the equivalent options in say DPP or Photoshop?
