EOS Bodies - For Stills / Add battery grip to maintain 6fps on 5D III
« on: November 19, 2013, 10:32:00 AM »
I’m shooting with 5D III. When the battery is full, I have no problem getting 6fps. However, when the battery is at half or 1/3 drops, I don’t get that 6fps anymore.

Will extra battery in battery grip helps? Have anybody try this before?

Thanks
Dylan

...The coach asked to see the photos and I showed him my pictures. He offered to pay for all 500 photos for $350(about 1hr of fun for me). I took the offer and gave him all JPEGs...

Man, congratulations!  That is... incredible, actually.  Almost unheard of in the photography business world to have someone offer to pay that much on the spot for unsolicited pics!  So uncommon that my brain is trying to rationalize it: maybe the coach and his kid are in Witness Protection program and bought the pics to keep them off the internet.  Of course if he does post them on his site, my theory is blown :(

In all seriousness, that's great!  No, I'm not jealous.  Not at all :)

Whatever the reasons were, I got $350 CASH ;D

My 2cents: he truely will post the photos I gave him on his website. Why? I saw he has little Nikon P&S in his jacket ;)

Thanks for info. Did you get a chance to play with A7/A7R with Zeiss 55mm? - if yes, do you find this combo still at compact level?

Unfortunately no, they ONLY had the 35mm lenses on the cameras. They didn't have any other FE lenses to test with. They did however have a whole load of metabones adapters to attach your own lenses and the Sony Amount SLT adapter.
However, i did ask them about the size of the 55 and the 24-70f4 and since they had ALL the A mount lenses on display,  ithey were able to give a rough example of their sizes and all i can say..it's about the size of the 17-40 from Canon so it's NOT small at all. the 35mm is the ONLY small compact size lens.

I tried it with the Canon 50mm f1.4 and the metabones mk3...it's soooo slow it's impossible to really use for work..average 2 sec AF.

I also tried the A mount adapter with the Zeiss 24-70 f2.8. This is SUPER fast..like a 5d3 but it's basically the same AF as a99 so it's expected. however, it is soooo front heavy..it's super uncomfortable to hold.

Again...thanks for the info.

I think most know what lens I want.

You've made no secret of your desire for a 40mm f/2.8 MkII.
Black or white?

Yes. ...received cash at the field.  He will use my photos to post on his site.

Congrats, that's a really cool surprise!  But that's a lot of cash for him to be walking around with! :o
None of my business,  but he seems to have more than $350 cash on that day.

Congrats, Dylan!  That's really great to hear that you scored some cash for your work.  It feels so good when you get paid to do something you're happy to do for free.  I guess you've justified your 300 f/2.8 IS II purchase to yourself and your wife now!  I hope this is just the start for you - I see more games, more teams, team portraits and more in your possible future 8).
Thanks. ..it was completely unexpected.  I was just testing the lens. I never thought about getting pay in photography.

My rental 300mm f2.8 IS II arrived yesterday.

I went to local high shool this morning to test out the lens - photograph "little soccer league". I took over 500 photos. The coach asked to see the photos and I showed him my pictures. He offered to pay for all 500 photos for $350(about 1hr of fun for me). I took the offer and gave him all JPEGs. I promised to edit some raws and will give him some later.

Should I change my carreer ::)

I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE I GOT !!!PAID!!! FOR THAT. I guess, I'm a "PRO" now ;D ;D ;D

Congrats :) It sure feels good!
Thanks

You know how those big Canon lenses are. That happens to me every time I rent one. People just keep throwing money at me!

Seriously, good for you!

One question, do you have the money yet?
Yes. ...received cash at the field.  He will use my photos to post on his site.

Dylan777,
Sometimes life IS sweet!
Hope they'll contract you in the future.  In the meantime, start looking for other paid events.
You may even go for the 200-400 f/4! 8)
-r

As I'm packing the lens this morning, return the lens back to rental. I heart said "cancel the Sony A7 + Zeiss 55mm and use that money to Canon 300mm f2.8 IS II"
