Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Macro Adapter?
« on: May 10, 2012, 07:55:32 PM »
yep I have these

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Kenko-Teleplus-Extension-Tube-DG-Set-Canon-EF-EF-S-/120911602776?pt=AU_Lenses&hash=item1c26e4a458

they retain Exif data and autofocus and metering only thing you lose is infinty focus as with all extension tubes

you can get ones with no electronics for like 10 bucks too (no name cheapies off ebay) but honestly they are utter rubbish you may as well spend that 10 bucks on a  couple of beers the cheap ones show 00 on aperture are MF only , no AF and metering is off

EOS Bodies / 5Dmk3 and 100f2.8L IS noise
« on: May 10, 2012, 07:20:12 PM »
playing with these last night and this lens makes some horrible noises with IS turned on
the 70-200 and 24-105 dont seem to make noises still have to test my 300 f4L
i wonder if its similar to the problem with the other lenses this problem shows up on
anyone else experienced it with the 100L?

this may sound retarded but here goes
I have been a long time windows user and changed to mac
Is there anyway to batch rename files in a mac without additional software
in windows its as simple as highlight all the files right click rename and it automatically add a sequential number to the name you give it. I cant seem to see anything on the mac that can do that  :-[

Can you give me an example of the file names...as they are, and how you'd like to alter them to be?
Mac is basically working on top of BSD Unix, and has all the unix toolset there...things like sed, awk, rename, etc....

I might could find you a quick command line script to convert them...

C
you know just a pile of CR2 file straight out of camera then you want to give them a name more related to what or when they were taken for example the shot date then it automatically adds a subsequent numerical increment to each.

anyway the way i get around this now is rename and convert to dng in lightroom now so its not a huge issue anymore just a peeve. But for my workflow before i bring anything into lightroom i open a folder of the files in bridge and do an initial cull of way off shots just deleting not tagging or rating that way i dont import so many files into lightroom to start with.

In windows this is accomplished simply by right click - rename (doesnt get much more simple than that)

most of my new to mac peeves i have found way around but this one is still there I though i was just dumb not being able to find it but having to wirte code to do such a simple task? retarded
i know you can buy little programs to do it but i object to have to install some poxy additional program to do something that should be OS embedded

next person near me that spins me the line "but macs just work" gets a punch in the face :o

since it would seem the D800E is benefiting quite a bit from a lack of AA filter
And the thing was announced before the 5dmk3 surely it wouldn't have been hard to
make a canon version where they just didnt install the thing, I think it would be alot more of a hit with still
shooters and video people can still get the normal one.

Anyone know how the DIY AA removals have gone?

Lenses / Re: BATTLE OF THE PRIMES: F1.8 Vs F1.4
« on: May 10, 2012, 06:47:07 PM »
as others have said bokeh is the biggest downfall with the 1.8 but the 1.4 is not so great either as it doesnt have circular aperture blades so you can make out thee 8 sides on bokeh lights
(i really wish canon would re-do the 1.4 to match compete with the nikor G lens, or sigma redo their fifty to the same quality that the new 85 1.4)

another interesting problem with the 1.4 that the 1.8 doesnt have is if you want to shoot infrared the 1.4 is subject to getting hot spots (both mk1 and mk2 versions of the 16-35L also have this problem)

overall I like the 1.4 and use it more often than the 1.8 however for shooting landscapes or maybe street photography where you will use narrow apertures there will be almost no noticable difference between the 2

I will try it out tonight and let you know how it works.
I tried out the MC-36R (C3) and it works fine with the 5D3 in both manual mode and time-lapse.

yep tried mine out too and its all good

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Silent shutter for 1D MK IV
« on: May 10, 2012, 02:33:19 AM »
there is
just change the AF drive
and its the single shot box with the S instead of just the plain single shot box
the camera sounds like its sneezing when you use it :P

2919
Thank you  ;)

on the link it doesn't say that it's compatible with the 5D III. Have you tried it (or do you know someone who has)?

because the 3-pin connection should fit the 5D III but i want to make sure there's no problem with the remote operating correctly

I'l check mine tonight to be 100% sure before i say yes but i am 99% sure it will work
this also works well from an iphone

I disagree, when i tested the mk3 and mk2 side by side at ISO 100 the 5Dmk2 was ever so slightly sharper than the 5dmk3 and the mk3 clearly had a little less moire. however that said this was only really noticable at 200% crop anyway so for all intents and purposes they are near enough to being equal in real world use

Are you referring to the Mac in general or just within DPP ?

mac in general,  just in finder seems to be no way to group rename the way you can in windows

Lenses / Re: Best lenses for...
« on: May 10, 2012, 12:00:44 AM »
Hello fellow Photogs, I'd like your insights on what is the BEST lens/es on a 5D Mark 2 for:

1) Portraiture?

2) Landscapes?

3) Weddings (if you can choose only 2)?

easy, my 2 favourite lenses :)

2 lenses that cover all that and then some,
Canon 16-35 f2.8L II and sigma 85mm f1.4
