Always nice to have the extra stop with 135/2, but the 5d3 lets me be lazy too with 70-200 2.8 II

Used the 5d3 and the 300 2.8 (original) with just a slight humming/vibration noted. Seemed to lock focus quickly w/o jumping but more noticeable than any sound from the 1dIV.

RAW is all that matters.

Unless you are shooting sports / news for a deadline and/or wirelessly are transferring files for a smaller file size.
Not every photo will be enlarged to its' maximum possible size, every time, although I have heard before that size 'is' all that matters.  ;)

I just finished shooting the moon with 300 2.8 + 1.4x, but manually focused;  and I have used the 300 2.8 in AI servo w/o a problem.

My copy seem sharp - this is out of the camera JPEG - did shoot on both cards, 1 RAW and 1 JPEG - waiting for update to LR 3 before batch processing the RAW. Tried the ACR 6.7 (?) update but extra step in saving / posting has me shooting JPEG for the time being. 

246
I'm spoiled by the 1dIV so it seemed slow, but compared with 5d2 I've tried it was brisk at 4-5 frames sec writing L L JPEG to the SD and large RAW to the CF ( both very fast cards).  The tracking in AI servo was good, high keeper rate by me ( not so high by my apprentice), and here are the out of camera JPEGs, modified only by custom WB and camera landscape.

Nice effort - few constructive suggestions for LR:

Crop more to isolate the face / emotion and remove background clutter

Consider some post-highlight vignetting to soften/darken the corners to give appearance of 'spotlight' on the subject - not too much, keep it subtle

When cropping, use the alignment tool to make sure the background horizon is appropriately flat or vertically aligned.

These were shot with my 1DIV but I also just started using the 5d3 - I'll post some of those shortly.

I thought the JPEGs were actually pretty good for ISO 3200 in a high school gym, varying light.

I posted these raw comparisons in a couple of other threads

I feel the 5D2 is sharper still

I saw these posted earlier but didn't look at them as closely as I did today. They don't look too bad, although they are on the soft side. They did sharpen up nicely with a subtle unsharp mask, though. Maybe my standards are just low :)

It sounds like the jpegs are real turds, though. Can anyone put up some sample jpegs? I'd like to see how bad the in-camera processing is.

249
I thing the ACR6.7 shows up even softer
the out of camera jpegs are so bad i've just turned them off all together.

My initial feeling about the files is they are not as good as the 5Dmk2 however its to hard to call until proper raw converters come out.

I really dont know what they have done to the in camera jpg output but its not good

i've not processed any files yet just view in DPP and bridge and open in PS but the adobe ones are noticably softer than the dpp preview
 

I agree - I want a better RAW converter the ACR 6.7 was not very good either, though I am not 'underwhelmed' by the in camera JPEG.  Here is a sequence of shots - with out of the camera JPEG settings (except Landscape and WB set to 3200) - not too bad handling of either the JPEG engine or the AF / low light handling, these are a burst at 1/800, f 2.8 ISO 3200 with the 70-200 2/8 II.

xxx527xx arrived today !

Interesting workflow - see other thread on getting .CR2 into LR
ACR (with update) works great, but extra steps if using LR  :-\

So is it safe to assume ACR or LR will be able to read the .CR2 files straight out of the Mark 3, or is there an update that needs to be installed.  I regularly run Adobe updater but have not found one lately.

Don't forget to include camera settings, situation, etc.  We are trying to learn from each other how to quickly capture candid moments, NOT how to set up lights, position models, etc.

Just to add a little fuel for fodder, my email confirmation came in 3/2/12 at 00:28 and I am very near the end of the xxxxx527xx, so I wonder how 'accurate' the email timing is - if it is based on the same 'clock' they sent it, or are the times on our emails based on when our email server clocks received it?

« on: March 21, 2012, 08:31:36 AM »
How about situations like this where a flash is inappropriate?  Any other work-arounds in post-production or other camera settings (white balance, metering options) that might reduce it?OR,  Is this just a function of the higher ISO sensitivity?  I shoot in gyms like this all the time (7D/1dIV) using 1/800-1/1000,  up to ISO 3200-6400 and have never seen it.  Have I been 'lucky' that my shutter speed and the frequency of the flickering just have not been in synch, or has my camera been unable to detect it at these lower ISOs?
