Lenses / Re: 100-400 f/4-5.6 or 200-400 f/4 "little brother"

The little brother would be  around 7k, not 2.

1998 I bought a second hand Mamiya 645, with three lenses.
I used it quite often the years after, a nice little MF.
Image quality was very good, a joy to enlarge.

After starting working in the hospital I didnt find the time and the will to go in the darkroom any more.

I sold my 2 T90s, glasses.

Kept the MF and my analog compact, the Olympus 35RD.

I would be very careful in a country, where you are not a member of the leading religious group like in Dubai.

If you are getting in trouble, youre rights dont mean very much. Youre some kind of a minor human being compared to the rights of someone with the "correct" religion.

You dont believe this?

An Austrian MD was leading a intensive care unit in Dubai.
He was accused killing someone by giving him morphin.
Didnt matter, if he was correct or not, they even didnt let him speak.
Sentenced him to death.

Never ever want to visit a country like this.

Be careful.

AF mode set to AI Servo, press the BB, hold it for tracking, leave it for a "pseudo one shot", and recompose without worrying loosing my focus.
Altogether it is a good thing to divide shutter from AF.
And the rate of keepers seems to be higher.

Fotography as a hobby I spend a lot of time.

Found BBF for myself only 3 month ago; after using AF since the analog 50E......

Love it, learned it quickly.

And yes, others could have a problem with it when you hand over the camera, because they want to take a picture of you.....

@ Olympus and 40mm.
I still own a 35RD, has a 40mm 1:1,7.
Lovely camera. Silent, lightweight.

Around 50mm primes: thinking about their weight and how big the apertures can be: seems to be easier to design then any other focal lenght.

Technical Support / Re: Can't transfer RAW files, only JPEGs

Don't use this specific card till you solved the problem.
I would try to download the files by a cardreader "simple" by opening two browser and "copy" them from card to the folder.
Next thing I would right- click to see the properties of both files with the same name.
If some program by downloading is involved, it could be a problem with "understanding" the files.
For example: the Canon file browser doesnt know the raw files of my Sony RX100, so it simply doesnt download them....
Good luck.

Full RAW.
Keep all options alive.

Canon General / Re: What's so bad about HDR?
« on: August 01, 2013, 02:53:34 AM »
HDR is just a technique.
Like in medicine: the dosis makes it helpful or poison.

Good point, expatinasia.
Always a good feeling that Canon cares for equipment thats not listed any longer.
Although: there was an update a few weeks ago for the 1d4.
After more then a year.
Have they forgotten something?
The fixed issues are new?
And yes: I actually had an err02 just a few days ago. Never before. Objectiv attached.
Strange thing.

Much bigger buffer, AF linked th spot- metering.
2 fast CF-slots would be fine too.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Why is metering not linked to AF spot?
« on: July 30, 2013, 05:31:29 AM »
Yes, would be a nice feature to have.
The pictures from my 1d4 are more accurately exposed in comparision to the 5d3, btw.

Software & Accessories / Re: How Long Does Your CF Cards Last...

Unless your a pro sportsshooter with 12fps and an event every day, I wouldnt worry.
They are simply replaced by bigger/faster cards.
My first 256mb card is in rent, healthy.
