Photography Technique / Re: Is RAW worth it?

Increase in resolution: not much.
Everything else like white balance, shadows, lights, local corrections can be much better.

Maybe you need a bit of rest. I had this too, years ago, didn't care very much. Came back with more appetite. Do something different.
If making pictures is your thing, you will notice that.
Good luck!

The movie about Kubrick was very good. How they got all these people tell the "truth"- and the finale- GREAT!

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D3 No Longer in Production

Canon has a lot of selfconfidence to predict the sales of this (any) item for the next 2 years.....

OR: the new 7D is that good, nobody will buy any other camera  ;)z

Canon General / Re: Battery Overheat
« on: August 16, 2014, 07:19:51 PM »
A mobile - a Nokia from the early nineties- had a battery overheating, that melted even the contacts.
The phone was in a friends coat, so he noticed it very quick.....

I place my NiCds or LiIons when the get charged on a place, that can't burn, like a big plate.
Safety first.

@mcguyver: I hope too it will not be a "cripple to fit"- body.
Would be very nice they bring out a body which shows, what is possible now.
As the coming APS- C top notch body from the leading company it should fit in this category.

We will see soon.
I hope.

24-70 and 70-200 you should have.
For travel to cover everything, a Ultrawide would be useful: something starting with 16....

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Fun Arias rant on APS-C vs. FF
« on: July 31, 2014, 08:19:06 AM »
Dont like all the repeats, brainwashing.
Dont like this kind of religious argumentation at all.
I still like the sensor in my Fuji X100s, but Mr. Arias less now.

+1 for the Epson 3880.

If you print larger numbers of A3 it will help you saving money because of the bigger cartridges.

Auto- ISO WITH EC:
Strange thing: I don`t miss that on my Canons, but on my Fuji X100s....

Software & Accessories / Re: laptop for tethered shooting?
« on: July 20, 2014, 08:34:28 AM »
Very good program with a small drawback: I have to turn of all the settings for back button focusing- otherwise the application refuses to work and shuts down.

Reviews / Re: Review - Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II
« on: July 20, 2014, 08:30:26 AM »
I own and love this lens since January 2011.  Double the price of the non-IS, but sharper and the incredible image stabilizer was and still is priceless in many situations!

Pricewatch Deals / Re: SanDisk Sale at B&H Photo
« on: July 17, 2014, 03:50:56 AM »
I bought a 64 and a 128GB SD from Transcend, the one which is specified write 60MB/s; read 95MB/s.
They are faster then my Sandisk 95MB/s, at half the price.
FYI.

I use 3 external Drives, alternating in a circle. Same size; when full, 2 stay at home, one at a friends house.

Lenses / Re: Anyone here been to Punta Cana?
« on: July 11, 2014, 03:50:32 PM »
Been there 2005.
I used my cam:
Kids in the water
A shark accidently caught in a net, set free again.
The rusty wreck on the beach.

Used most: tele.

Reward: the first pictures of my stepdaughters. Priceless.

Have fun!
