I have three 5TB USB3 ext. HDs, mainly for photos. I keep two at home and both always up to date. One at grandma house with monthly backup.

Once your mind start thinking about the BIG WHITE, you pretty much bought it - THE END ;)

1D body becomes a piece of cake after ;D

Stupid many of you thinking about buttons and stuff, if you buy a new beautiful car you don´t think about the buttons YOU GET USED TO IT ... i´ve been a canon owner since 2008 when i started shooting , and been shooting aurora, volcano's and models and using 1ds mk III now , i like it but i´ve been waiting for something like the d810.
Really cant wait for the results in aurora and night shooting and the d810 really F****d the 5d mk III up in video shooting BIG differences so grow up and think about the facts if you really are a good shooter and need a better quality in your photos, if not stick to your favorite. As in now Nikon got the best one on the market ( sorry to say for you religious people )  but it´s a fact

all the best to you

Welcome to CR.

Are you feeling better now?  ;)

Reading all these reviews, my GAS shifted to higher gear.

EOS Bodies / Re: Which is better for high ISO, 6D or 5D Mk III?

With larger pixel and less MP, 1DX is your next choice if you want to go higher than 6400ISO. 5D III will not be your answer.

@ 12800ISO, I'm very happy with my X.

Something just slightly different . . .

It's little diff. It looks cool

Double-crested Cormorant take off !

100-400mm and 60D

I really like the 2nd photo

My 2cent: it comes down to individual needs - sport shooter Vs Landscape shooter.

I do lot of indoor shooting, clean IQ at high ISO is what I'm after.

That's it.  I bought a D800, and at low ISO's, it was very good.  At High ISO's, the amount of noise made the files gigantic, and it was taking Lightroom almost a minute to render it, and adjusting the noise slider took another minute to update.  I had a 4 core I7 computer.  Not the fastest, but plenty fast for my 5D MK III.  I've since updated to the latest i7 processor and to LR5, and it renders them much faster.
Then, there were the Nikon lenses, my 24-70 f/2.8G had a huge amount of CA's. It was so bad that Lightroom could not correct it all.  I thought the lens was bad until I read some reviews seeing the same issues.  DXO, of course rated them excellent ;)   I also saw that it takes a month or more for Nikon to repair a lens, while Canon turns one around in about 2 days.
A person needs to be aware of all the surrounding issues, and then go for what he needs.

As an owner of a7r, I understand the feeling of PP 36MP files

Software & Accessories / DxO Optics Pro 9, Elite Edition
« on: June 29, 2014, 02:04:38 AM »
Most of my photos are indoor & low light. I'm thinking about DxO Optics Pro 9, Elite Edition as PP software(never use DxO before). I'm a LR user.

For those using DXO, can you guys share your thoughts on this Vs LR5?

Thanks in advance,

Here is my first pano with the 16-35 f4.  I took it to a major league baseball game last night to get some panos of the pittsburgh pirates; however, i screwed up the focus somehow.  I've been comparing it with my 24-70 mk ii and 24 tilt shift and i'm very happy so far.  I don't think it's quite as sharp as my 24 mm tilt shift mk II.

Wonderful capture. Great colors. Thanks for sharing

Although I don't really need UWA yet, your photos tempted me to pull the trigger sooner. Through reviews, this lens seems to be great for landscape shooters - in lower light, golden hours. That 4stop IS will be very handy.

I propose a poll to see who among the CR members neuroanatomist, dilbert, or Aglet has provided the most helpful/useful/beneficial information to the other members of the forum. 
I don't know who would win this poll but I have to say that neuroanatomist has given me excellent advice.  I am no novice to photography, or even digital photography, but I do ask some simple minded questions from time to time. (I am planning ABC, my lens choices are probably DEF, what do y'all think?).  Neuranatomist has always given good advice (sometimes I even followed it) and treated an old man with respect.

I'm sure you are not the only one on CR site ;)

The only advice that I didn't take from Neuro is to drive nail with 1DX ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: Canon 5 Layer UV, IR, RGB Sensor
« on: June 28, 2014, 10:01:50 AM »
A patent showing a 5 layer image sensor from Canon has appeared. UV and IR layers help with color reproduction especially for skin tones.</p>

New Patent here new Sensor there
New Patent here new Sensor there
New Patent here new Sensor there

Canon it is time to give us a camera(s) with this new technologies, let us testing how good it is  ;D

Hah! I agree. Canon has a lot of really good patents for camera sensors...they just never seem to apply them. I'd love to have a 120mp APS-H that can do 9.5fps...I really wonder why they haven't stuffed that wonder into an actual DSLR and just trounced all the competition.

Well if you were to read the canonrumors forums, you could be forgiven for thinking that even 24MP is too many (for an APS-C sensor) given how much extra noise is there and that 36MP makes working with raw files too slow to be practical. And you're suggesting that Canon bring out a camera with 4 times as many MP as the high in a current FF DSLR?? Are you just being facetious or are you being serious?

Let me put this another way. If Nikon or Sony debuted a camera next week with a 120MP APS-H sensor, what do you think the forums here would have to say about it?

I would say....another failures in Nikon lineup
