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.

Yes, would be a nice feature to have.
The pictures from my 1d4 are more accurately exposed in comparision to the 5d3, btw.

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.

Nice shot, RLP!
Less grain at high iso: exposure to the right; sometimes kind of weird color by artificial light can also cause higher grain, if you try to get a correct WB in post.
And last but not least: grain in focus looks good, out of focus kind of "spongy".

Lenses / Re: Canon 40mm or High-End Compact?

I highly recommend the Sony RX100 as a compact companion.
Sure, it has a smaller sensor, but it is almost always with me.
This is the reason, I have a compact.
Much smaller then a DLSR, much better IQ then the camera on my cellphone.

Lovely picture!
I should do some daylight HDRs too, till now I have made them only in the night.
Inspiring for me!

@ Jack Douglas: awesome picture!!

Bigger buffer and/or a fast interface on both cards.

1D X Sample Images / Re: Rocket Launch shoot with Canon 1dx

Very nice shots in this thread, thank you all!!

Ansel Adam for his technique.
HCB for his instinct.
Robert Doisneau for his snapshots.

+1 for the monopod.

Software & Accessories / Re: Benefits of using a grip?
« on: July 15, 2013, 02:27:32 AM »
Using the back button focus technique I like to have the grip on my 5D3.
And the frame of the 1D4, where it is part of the body.
Having large hands my ring and little finger would hang loose without.
It simply feels more balanced with it.
I can understand, if somebody doesnt like it for the extra weight.
