I wonder when we will have them in Aus?
That 85L will be painfully slow when trying to capture an event like a quinceanera, I cover parties / weddings and eventually only use my 85L for staged shots...
Sorry, can you explain that further? Slow in what way? I'm guessing focus.
The electronic AF of the 85L is very slow, takes ages to lock focus.
Does anyone use Lightroom 3 and/or Photoshop CS5.5 on a Macbook Air?
The model I have is not the current model, but the previous one: 2.13 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4 Gb 1067 MHz DDR3 RAM, Apple SSD 250 Gb, NVIDIA GeForce 320M 256Mb graphics card.
Will it be up to the job?
The Cokin grads and NDs will leave a huge purple color cast on long shots, but can remove them with software. I usually just end up making my shots bw to save time. I have talked to people that use Lee, and they say that you still get the purple, but I can't imagine that it is nearly as bad as the Cokins.And to think some people spend ages in photoshop trying to get purple skys they could just use a cheap filter
Right, so....Ive discovered that I have been smited like hell....in the same way mosquitos sting you if you walk out into the forest at night. ...
I guess the people who smite me are those who feel insulted because I have not recommended their lenses or bodies in my replies to other people's posts. People smite you because they can't stand their lenses being "unrecommended". Most of the time, thats the only lenses they have and they take it too personally....also I've found that some people can't stand it when others says something negative about Canon.
On this site, by giving your opinion = smite
so.....since I have 120+ smites and only 30+ thumbs up, I cant careless about my reputation, so people go on smite me! Your lenses can be S___. Canon can sometimes be S___. And your camera bodies are probably need an upgrade.
You are so right. I joined this forum a few weeks ago as a retired photography instructor, with the beautiful idea of helping others for free with any and all photography questions--hence, my chosen name "helpful."
But as soon as I had started posting some images to use as examples of depth of field, white balance, etc., I started collecting an negative karma out of no where. I decided to devote my time to people who might actually want it. I deleted nearly all my posts, and all my images--why share my work at site and get smites when the same photos have won me photo of the year awards and publication in the Tribune, etc.
I am still willing to help anyone who actually wants it. Don't hesitate to ask me anything about photography.
Now watch my smites add up!
Thanks for all the advice!
Good news though - I've managed to find a 5DMkIII and it is due to be delivered tomorrow, together with spare battery and circular polarising filter
The only slight downside is that to get the 5DMkIII I had to buy it as a kit with the 24-105 f/4 IS lens. Is it a downside though? Actually, I'm thinking the 24-105 lens might be an excellent all round lens and perhaps all I need to take with me? I don't really want to lug too much equipment around, not only because of the bulk and weight of it but also the value for insurance purposes. Come to think of it, using just the one lens would also avoid the need (or temptation) to change lenses and expose the sensor to dirt, dust etc. So, do you think it's a good idea to travel with the 5DMkIII and just the one lens?
Regarding a ND/grad filter, I'm thinking of buying in to the Lee Filter System, unless there is something better/more practical?
One thing I think I definitely need is a tripod, for landscapes. I don't want to take my existing Manfrotto model as it's way too heavy and bulky to travel with, so can anyone suggest a good travel tripod that is light but sturdy and won't take up too much space?
Oh and the 5DMkIII camera strap is WAY too conspicuous - can anyone suggest a good alternative?
