EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Help with upgrade from T3i?
« on: January 22, 2015, 11:52:52 PM »
I would go FF. Add DxO, 6400ISO should be no problem in low light. Sell your crop gear and put that money toward new 24-70 f2.8 II.

1D X Sample Images / Re: Anything shot with a 1DX - Page 2

Thank You Gentlemen, this particular Male was entrancing, the eyes I have never seen this bright before on any Lion, and I've Photographed a few, he is the Alpha Male of a coalition of 3 Brothers in the Mashatu Plains area, on this particular morning he was on his own & was following vultures in the sky hoping they would lead him to a fresh kill, so he was constantly looking upward and the light was just about perfect.

Another day in Paradise.

Edward,
We still waiting for your Safari photo books ;)

Software & Accessories / Re: 10 bit graphics card ??
« on: January 21, 2015, 09:32:33 AM »
Yes because you'll need display port for 10 bit and they restrict 10 bit to the pro cards. However there is a hack to trick some Nvidia cards into believing they are quadro cards and getting them to work in 10 bit mode. It's not for the faint of heart.

+1

Learned that when I upgraded my PC few months back. LOVE my new PC

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Deal: Canon EOS-1D X Body $4199
« on: January 21, 2015, 09:29:09 AM »
At that price, if I didn't have one, I'd get one!

No matter what Canon have in pipeline, this is a lot of camera for the money and a 1DX-II will cost a lot more.

+1....very temping to pull trigger on 2nd 1DX.

Please don't.... you already have one.... what's coming is worth the wait I suspect :-)
I'm not limited by 1DX. The raw file is awesome to work with. I'm a bit concern about the price tag on XII. We might be in the $8k range.

Post Processing / Re: Choose a Monitor?

yes  ;)

Dylan, have you verified the LG gets 99% of Adobe RGB with calibration? That is pretty amazing...

Thanks!

Looking to buy a monitor I can use my laptop to view and process images ...

Have no clue about what specs to look at or brand ... I'd like to place images side x side on the monitor and watch the changes as I process.   My 15" laptop screen is too small to see well enough.

I have plenty of room for a 28" or 32" monitor ...  If someone force me to name a budget, I'd say $500, but less if it will do the job, and more if it must.

Not looking for a high budget monitor, but one that will do a good job - like, "not cheap", but not "fat wallet level either"  -- as my workflow does not require that kind of expense for a monitor.

If it matters ?? -- I shoot sports and wildlife -- and some landscapes -- almost nothing indoors.  I don't 'pixel peek' to the 'nnnth' degree, but like to get a good look at the image quality and make the adjustments necessary ... 

Shoot with a 7D2 and a 5DM3 w/ all "L" zoom lenses ... if that matters ?

Buy it one, buy it right ;)

Very satisfied with this LG: http://www.lg.com/us/commercial/lcd-computer-monitors/lg-27MB85Z-B

Reviews / Re: 85mm 1.8 vs other 85mm Primes for portraits
« on: January 20, 2015, 08:16:00 PM »
If f5.6 or smaller is your style, then don't buy 85L II.

I don't recall I ever shoot smaller then f2 on my 85L II. At f2, focus is NOT an issue on my 1DX & 5D III. L produces better colors and contrast.

Both are great lenses.

Lenses / Re: Why I love the 200mm f2.0 prime
« on: January 20, 2015, 06:33:14 PM »
The one lens I will NEVER sell. Absolutely unique.

Clean the front? No problem, the front glass is a protector like a uv filter, and not that expensive to replace. I have only wiped my lens after heavy rain when the glass is covered in droplets.

I would, ONLY ver II is at least 25% lighter  ;)

Attach this lens on 1Dx = MAJOR G.A.S.

EOS-M / Re: Why do I keep my Eos M?
« on: January 19, 2015, 02:09:01 AM »
Bought it for same reason, $300. I used it very little. I prefer my RX1. Hope RX1 II will comes with pop-up EVF(same as RX100 III). Will sell my Eos-M soon.

My M is up for sale: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=24652.msg484874#new

Bought this combo during $299 sale. The camera has been sitting in my office for long time - little use. I think most of you guys know me well. I'm more like a FF guy. My compact camera is RX1. This camera looks and performs like NEW - no marks, no scratches.

Sale includes all original accessories, box and BH sale receipt. I'll throw in one additional Canon LP-E12 Lithium-Ion Battery - bought it from BH for $45.

Asking price: $250 shipped.

I accept Paypal with two conditions:
1. Your shipping address must be confirmed
2. US only, no international

Thanks for looking
Dylan
