Portrait / Re: Candid portraits
« on: July 08, 2012, 09:05:57 AM »
We started experimenting with self-portraits few weeks ago, here are first examples:









Nice images, but not exactly 'candid' portraits.  Every now and again, we debate the meaning of 'candid', but as OP, I am really hoping to keep on-thread by having posters display and discuss settings/strategies used to quickly capture unplanned/unposed moments in time.  My intent with the thread is to see/learn what and HOW others use their cameras to spontaneously and quickly make memories worth sharing. 

I guess using a self-timer is a strategy I hadn't thought about till now, so maybe it actually does meet the criteria. :)

Just hoping all posters remember to describe their settings/situation more in detail so we all can learn to step out of our comfort zone of controlling the lighting/posing, etc.

Just got an email from B&H, my 1DX web order 10198871xx (3/14/12 ~2:30pm eastern) has shipped

Has the shipping info been updated?
On 7/4 my info said shipped, but the tracking info only has the Origin scan and nothing else.  Is it actually en route?

UPDATE 7/7 AM:
MY order was in fact picked up from B/H by UPS on 7/4, but they were 'closed' for the holiday so not actually processed until 7/5, and it is now officially en route (Philadelphia) for a Pittsburgh delivery.  Somewhat frustrating that I paid for NEXT Day air and it won't come for 5 days later.  I didn't pay for next 'business' day, and if I did, that should still have been 7/6 not 7/9.  Anyways, what's 5 days when we have been waiting 7 months since announcement....

EOS Bodies / Re: B&H 1DX Order Fulfillment Tracking
« on: July 06, 2012, 02:53:50 PM »
I just had a chat with someone at B&H and he said they are still waiting for the shipment that was supposed to show up on Tuesday.

So they charged my CC and purchased a Ups shipping label, with tracking # before receiving stock????
I hope not, I'm really hoping they just received SO MANY that they couldn't process them all on the holiday with a smaller workforce and are just a day behind managing their inventory. Or more likely, they are too busy live chatting with disappointed loyalists  ;)

Online order on 3/14 12:50 EST 1019886xxx

Received email with shipping info on 7/4, with a tracking number, but it wasn't until yesterday 7/5, when the label was processed at UPS with a scheduled 7/6 delivery ( I paid for next day air)
This AM when I checked on status - UPS tracking was updated for scheduled delivery 7/9, and still no scan other than the original, it has not been picked up by UPS yet, ugh....

Just got my B/H tracking number :), and it didn't get here in time for Jr Nationals, but it is 'in the mail' finally!

Just got an updated shipping notice-delivery now scheduled for 7/9/12  :-\
Really bummed as I paid for next day air... This totally just ruined my plans for the weekend.  Wife is out of town, so was going to do some serious, real-life, side by side testing of 1dX. 1dIV and 5d3.. I will have to postpone comparing until it actually arrives....

Congrats!!  Can I ask...what was your order number (as in 1019###xx for web orders)?

1019886xxx

Wow - after reading your post, I must have somehow got my order in slightly ahead of yours - not bad considering I was golfing and put my order in on my iPhone between holes...

I use both (as backup to my 1dIV) for indoor sports, and to me the FF DOF & better high ISO performance of the 5D3 overcomes the loss of reach and 'extra' 1+ fps the 7d offers. I shoot with grips on both.  For indoor, low light sports, I choose the 5d3 now for my action shots, and am experimenting with setting up the 7d for videos.  If shooting outdoors in good light and needed more reach, I would have a tougher decision, but since I am mostly indoors, I grab the 5d3 more often.

Live chatted with B&H today, they have no way of giving priority to CPS platinum members unfortunately, but I was told I am high on the list with an order # xxxxx86xxx ending with low numbers ;)
They suggested possible delivery by my next project, June 28.    One can only hope :)

Hey Crapking, just wondering if you have any more updates, do you think it still holds true for your possible delivery date?thanks!

No updates unfortunately...as mentioned earlier, my only info came during a live chat with the B/H rep who 'suggested' a possible delivery before my next assignment (FIVB/Jr National Volleyball tournaments in Dallas July 1-8). He did say I was high in the queue based on my order number but was not specific.  :-\
