Absolutely gorgeous photo.  Absolutely beautiful place.  Makes me desire to visit Austria!

Hallstatt, Austria, in the morning.

Many pictures here make me want to travel.
Thank you!

Technical Support / Re: Sharpest f stop for a lens?

As a rule of thumb: 2 stops closed.
And a old saying says, at f8 a lens has to be good.
REAL GOOD lenses like the new vII zooms of the Canon or the big whites show less difference open vs 2 stops down.

I love people being consequent walking on the path for good light.
The umbrella- man I would like to shake his hand for that.

Lighting / Re: Finally getting some Eneloops, but will my old charger work?

Recommended chargers:
The Maha 9000, c801d, c808m
The AV4m, the LaCrosse 700/1000 (different countries-different names; I know them as Technoline)
The MEC AP8.
Important for suvivi g/good charging: a good cutoff at the end of charging; with delta peak cutoff and temeprature control not to overheat.
My first, not cheap, Ansmann Energy 8 killed several cells. Costed my some energy to realize it is expensive crap.

Good answer.
The best is to make picutres when they dont notice you.
The way I do it.
And a camera is always near me, so I can react fast.
The yippie!- moment is also a very good idea.

Oops!! Excuse me for the flash!
Didnt notice it is video....

If possible, take a 35L or 24L.
Are you allowed to flash?
If so, fill in some bounced light from a white wall could be helpful.

I had one contact with CPS in Vienna, Austria.
Nice people, the repairguy explained me, what he did, everything relaxed.
Was a massive backfocus of an 300/4 on both of my bodies.

No complain about that.

Did I miss the topic again?

Speedlites, Printers, Accessories / Re: Lexar CF cards FAIL - Sandisk?

Both brands have an excellent reputation.
Never had a failure with now around 20 cards together from both brands over the years.

+1 for Sony RX100, v1 or 2.
Expensive, but worth it.

The "cripple to fit in a category"-thing.
Explanation: the 1D4 has a 20 picture deep buffer size using RAW+ JPEG.
The 3 years younger 5D3 only 7.
Yes, even calculating bigger size of files it has to be around 15 or 16.
Faster DIGIC- processor?
So please give us all of the benefit.
The 1Dx has a buffer around 40 (am I correct?), so there is still a lot of difference regarding only buffer size.
This I don't understand.

If you like your ThinkTank bag (I have it and its the first backpack I rellay like!), what about a roller from Thinktank?
Some of them are really big, and some of them can be carried with straps, if necessary.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Sports Shooting Options?
« on: September 11, 2013, 07:18:51 AM »
7D + 70-200/2.8 v1.
For sports I would prefer high FPS, and the buffersize gained size since this new FW came out.
