Lighting / Re: Finally getting some Eneloops, but will my old charger work?
« on: September 14, 2013, 10:23:24 AM »
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?
« on: September 12, 2013, 09:36:24 AM »
Both brands have an excellent reputation.
Never had a failure with now around 20 cards together from both brands over the years.

PowerShot Cameras / Re: Help on a pocketable compact

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

Complaints?
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.

RAW, 100%.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D Mk 3 and 1D Mk IV raw images
« on: September 07, 2013, 06:56:31 PM »
I have these 2 bodies.
Speaking for RAW:
1D4: easier to handle, better to push if necessary.
5d3: more work, can show better results.
Speaking for jpeg (I always run them parallel):
1d4 much better in everything, especially AWB and brightness.

1Dx is 5 times better?
Wow.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: If you plan to upgrade your camera, read
« on: September 07, 2013, 03:49:00 PM »
Love my 5D, love my 1Dmk4.
Different tracks, different horses (we had this before here?).
And what would my next upgrade be from my 5D?
Hmm....

Technical Support / Re: Which one is accurate?
« on: September 07, 2013, 11:41:31 AM »
The first one is the version, that catched your attention and made you push the button.
The second one is the version under light temperature 5500K.

There is a reason for the term golden hour (is a tag iny bridge BTW).

And yes to Mr. Geek: there is also a scientific approach.

Lenses / Re: W/A zoom for 5D MkIII
« on: September 07, 2013, 11:25:38 AM »
Tested the 17-40 for weekend.
Didnt like it. Soft corners with not so soft CAs.
Owned a 16-35II for more then a year.
Corners soft, till f8.
Sold it.
Bought the Tokina 16-28.
Heavy. No filters then special solutions.
BUT: IQ finally satisfying.
