EOS Bodies / Re: More EOS 7D Mark II Talk [CR1]
« on: June 16, 2014, 07:38:36 AM »
We’re told the viewfinder will have 100% coverage

Now that one I believe, they wouldn't dare do anything less!!

Late June.... To coincide with anything? hope so!

Nice photos, my thoughts for what they’re worth

1.   You have a very pretty girlfriend
2.   She knows how hold herself in front of a camera
3.   1 & 2 are way more important than any piece of kit
4.   IMG_4531.jpg/IMG_4646.jpg lose the watch
5.   Really don’t think the amber dome in that context, anyone for ghost stories (harsh)
6.   Particularly like the first and third photos (amber dome aside)
7.   Don’t join a camera club it will ruin every spark of creativity you have
8.   Hope you post again I think you have a good eye

how the HELL would YOU even NOTICE a freaking specific lens from 400 photographers stacked up around the field on a TV? do you have a special program on your TV where a camera swoops across every photographer there and showing their gear?

stop whining about I HAVENT SEEN a 7D2 or insert random lens here.

for f*** sake people.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D Lmfho

Boring? That second half wasn't boring!

Pity about Fred's cheating and Neymar dirty play though.

Wonder just how many togs were at that game, the entire pitch seemed to be surrounded by them. How do they all earn a living with such saturation?

What my gut is telling me is that the 7D2 is going to be the most epic entry in the APS-C segment for the last 5 years.

Not that I'd ever be an early adopter that new 16-35 is much more important to me but getting excited, how many more sleeps?  ;D

For holiday (ie casual) pano's and stitching

40mm Pancake vertical orientation
pre-processed in Dx0 Optics
stitched in PTGui
re-touched in PSE

Love that little pancake, must dig out some examples but will have to downsize them a heck of a lot not sure how that will turn out

(Also influenced by Sporgon's comments)

+1 for the 40 it's a brilliant daytime street lens, no one gets pissed when you point it at them in tight spaces it doesn't get  bumped and has little if no theft value

Software & Accessories / Re: Which Software to convert Raw files?
« on: May 27, 2014, 07:07:40 PM »
I use DxO as my primary software for RAW. The PRIME noise reduction is incredible, virtually eliminating noise without loss of resolution. Further processing and sharpening are done in Photoshop as it has some nice tweaks and its "layers" is very useful.

Have recently moved from DPP to DxO, I try to do as much as possible within DxO but for some tweeks and cleaning PS or equivalent is indispensable.

To add a footnote to mt. S comments on possibly requiring the pro version, the cut off is actually determined by the size of the image in megapixels not megabytes this is a very important distinction as if like me you do stitching and panos you my require the pro version no matter what camera you have. DxO do not make this clear at all.
