1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx
« on: May 24, 2014, 11:09:22 PM »
great shots edward, keep'm coming!

eldar...nice shot of the amur leopard...we have two here at our local zoo....beautiful creatures.

i usually try to overexpose by a 1/3 when i'm trying to get faces under helmets, but sometimes i unfortunately blow out areas of the image with that technique.

1D X is designed to capture photos like these. Awesome Northstar

I wish I could say I met this one out in the wild, but ... I´m afraid not. This is an Amur Leopard, 30-40 remain in the wild and about 120 are in various parks around the world. This one was shot during a Photography Master Class in The Ark of the North (Nordens Ark) in Sweden.

200-400 f4L IS 1.4x at 250mm
1/125s, f5.0, ISO2500

Awesome shot Eldar

interested to see what 7D II has to offer..... ::)

I think it is G.A.S.  :P

What about the 1DX?
A dream no?
And the 16-35 f/4 IS?
choices choices choices...... 8)

Just for the record, I DO NOT have G.A.S....... ;D   I talked myself out of 600mm: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=19923.120

1D X would be a dream camera for many us(including myself). If I can talk myself into selling A7r + FE 55mm, then 1D X is within reach..... ::)

Regardless how fast 7D II might be, I highly doubt I would add crop sensor to my kit. Anyways, still want to see the specs
Well, there is no such thing as : "I DO NOT have G.A.S". It is "I DO NOT have G.A.S NOW!"  ;D

LOL.......... ;D

Some of you know me better than I know myself  ;)

Dylan, get a 1DX and you won't regret it! 

I tried talking myself out of buying a 1DX for about 6 months, but I finally bought a 1DX about a month ago, and I'm loving it!

Yeah, the 1DX is big and heavy, but it's like driving a Porsche...there is no substitute! Plus, the files are so much easier to work with in Lightroom...I don't see the banding/color noise in the shadows, like I do with my 5dMkIII.

Thanks Gino for the encouragement.

I'll keep an eye on 1D X special sale from now on. If the price is right, I guess anything can happen ;)

Wonder...what is the lowest price on 1D X, US model?

Turtles aren't a subject I seek out, but I'd like to play - the first two and the last are Suwanee Cooters  - Suwannee (river) as in the song, and cooter as in the American slang for a woman's well, you know.  Odd name for sure.  I haven't been able to identify the other turtle:

Canon General / Re: Let's confess our disgusting perversions
« on: May 23, 2014, 04:52:47 PM »
0. I'm sure these are disgusting perversions for many, but I don't agree with you ;D
1. I like some Sigma lenses better, than equivalent Canon ones.
2. My camera is worth more than all my lenses combined at the moment.
3. I never use UV filters.
4. I prefer 50/1.8II on FF over 35L on a Rebel.
5. I always use LiveView for landscapes.
6. I crop a lot.
7. I only use center point for focusing.
8. For me, photography is a "capture-the-moment technology", not art.

#2 - As long as you enjoy the IQ, there is nothing wrong with that

#7 - Dam 6D  :P

#8 - same here. there is no rule of third in my photos. I don't use DOF button before pushing shutter. I like to shoot wide open, unless, I really want to have background included. These are just tools to capture what I want and when I want to  ;)

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Deals: Lexar Professional Memory Cards
« on: May 23, 2014, 04:23:00 PM »
Thank you for the heads up. For some reason I just bought a 64GB 1066X and it was only US$ 88.xx.

Amazing price, even if I am not entirely sure I need another one. Still always good to have back up cards, just in case!

@ $88, I couldn't help not to buy. I too picked up two 64GB CF cards.

Thanks CR

**Service update**

I just now received  an update for my 50 Art at the repair shop.

They have ordered the mother board of the lens to replace. I can guarantee, as an old consumer electronics rep guy, they have NO idea what's wrong, and decided to switch out all the electronics and cross their fingers. It's also cheaper to replace the whole board, than to find a single component that might act up, very tricky to find.

So a brand new lens, and they have no idea whats wrong, so they try something. I'm not all that confident, because I still can't believe yet again I got a faulty brand new lens, no way....

Yeap......welcome to SMT world. It's cheaper to replace the board. I hope the tech has enough training  ::)

That is one great image, even by your standards Edward.

Like I (and several others on CR) have said a couple of times, you have to make a book. A big one, where you tell all these stories and give advice on travel, guiding, equipment etc. And share your phenomenal images in high quality print!

I hereby preorder 10 copies!

+3 (preorders  :P )

seriesously, I would preorder one. Hope to have the photographer signature on this book as well.

I put it in my cart, but did not go thru with it, I'm really wanting a FF body with the dual pixel, and I do not like the SD card. 
 
It is a good deal, I'll need to think it over some more.

+1......For me, it will be hard to go back to crop

I see an awful lot of bitching, complaining and general brand hatred in this thread.  Let me add:

- If you want a Canon/Nikon camera like the A7/A7R to use with all your Canon/Nikon lenses, buy an adapter!
- If you don't like the A7/A7R, don't buy it.
- If Sony doesn't make the lens you want, use someone else's!

If you want a really great full frame camera, buy the Sony A7 or A7r and enjoy it.

I've been a Canon user for years and a Pentax user before that.  I now have an A7R with adapters for all my Canon, Pentax, Minolta, M42 and T2 lenses and love it.  I own one Sony lens, the kit 28-70mm fit lens for the A7 (because someone didn't like it and gave it to me).  BEST lens I've ever had for the price!

Stop bitching, go for it and have fun...
Not quite the post one expects from a first time poster ... nevertheless Welcome to CR!

Ummmmm, Yes, I agree with Rienz, welcome to CR, I think.

I've had my a7r for a while now, handed it to my eldest lad who likes it, but I recently re appropriated it to use with the Otus 55f/1.4, I must say that combination is quite remarkable, the Focus Peaking on the a7r is hugely useful with this Manual Focus Lens, I prefer this combo at the moment over the 1Dx with a Manual Focus Screen in place, especially in Low Light.

A7r + FE 55mm = 50L sold on ebay. I have no plan adding 50mm to my current gear. The primary reason I haven't place a pre-order on Canon 16-35 f4 IS is I'm waiting to see what Sony/Zeiss has to offer on their rumor FE 16-35 f4 OS.
Just bought the FE 55 f/1.8 and the FE 70-200 f/4 OSS lenses today ... and I agree with you about the 55, its a fantastic lens ... the 70-200 f/4 was surprise package, it is very light with very good build quality, makes it easy to travel with it.

Your signature is getting out of controll... ;D Keep in mind, FE 16-35 f4 OS is right around the corner.

Software & Accessories / Re: Shooting in the rain
« on: May 22, 2014, 11:47:32 AM »
I've shot out in the rain a few times, and I went the simple route and used a trash bag.  I just cut a hole in one of the corners and that's where I put the end of my lens. I used a hair tie or something similar to hold the bag onto the lens.

Happened to me couple times. I ended up using plastic shopping bag and cont. with my shooting. No issue... ;)

As you can see, the rain was coming down hard. This was in HongKong.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Cps gave me a 1dx and falling in love
« on: May 22, 2014, 10:57:21 AM »

Just love the af locks on. Exposure seems more accurate. The raws definitely have more latitude. If you pull the shadows too much in the 5d, the banding is apparent and the 1d files gives you more. What was nice was not the burst but how accurate it was. Caught so many more moments of the active kids.

So, what is the verdict KKCFamilyman?
