EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: RAW or JPEG

RAW, 100%.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D Mk 3 and 1D Mk IV raw images

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?

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?

Technical Support / Re: Which one is accurate?

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

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.

@ unfocused: CS6 was available as a box-version. I have this version.

No longer interesting.

Should I accept the offer (I own- pardon me- I am allowed to use CS6), and I stop paying: is my license of CS6 still valid or not?
I still don't want it, just curious.
Thanks for information.
BTW.: on the german Adobe homepage I don't find this offer.

This thread reminds me on the phrase on a movie: we are talking about the people, we are not talking about.
I noticed sometimes his "comments", he is banned and has now his own thread.

Software & Accessories / Re: JPEG as a travel alternative
« on: August 31, 2013, 11:37:50 AM »
Another idea:
I don't travel with a notebook, I look at my "harvest" at home.
In other words: what about leaving the notebook at home and carry some more CF and/or SD cards?
Mail and social contacts every smartphone could do.

Lighting / Re: 600EX-RT + 580EX II Questions

To the opening question: optical OR radio.

And yes: they are much more reliable than the PocketWizards, less fuzzing around with extra gear (although I love my gear...).
To use an 600 or the ST3 on top of the camera: depends on the situation.

Or take a smaller body than the 5d and shoot raw.
Or leave the grip at home.
I absolutely dont want to miss the possibility of pp.
Neither Canon or my beloved RX100.

EOS Bodies / Re: Why you shouldn't be worried about DR
« on: August 30, 2013, 07:46:52 AM »
I use my CPLs quite often.
Didnt like to buy a 82mm for the 24-70, was nice to use my 77mm for the old and the 70-200.
Always in my bag.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Storage and life of batteries
« on: August 29, 2013, 05:05:25 AM »
I try to keep mine between 40 and 80% charge.
This is said to be the comfort zone for LiIon- cells.
And if I expect a journey or a longer session I charge them full.

A red bar means the battery is loosing capacity. I have one, still working with appr. 20% less actuations possible.
A user recently wrote, a cell with red bar heated up when charging.
Didn't notice that, but with LiIon I would always be cautious. Means, I am in the house when I charge them.

Lenses / Re: Which L Lens to start with?
« on: August 26, 2013, 07:43:26 AM »
To start: most used 24-70/II.
Then, close second 70-200/2.8 II.
Primes: 35L and 135L.
