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.

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".

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!

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

+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.

Calm down. It's only the nose of the rabbit Harvey.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 1DX Damaged by CPS

There are two scenarious:
They see their mistake and try to offer you something to solve this problem
they say, they didnt damage it and you have to prove it.

I understand your feelings, because it was loveless packed.

Good luck!

If your on the side of the track, I would recommend more then 200mm. So the 300/4, the 100-400.
In your lineup I would choose the 135/2.
There are some threads on this forum about this lens and how it is appreciated.

Lenses / Re: Does IS make bokeh busier/less smooth?

The argument with the axis: why is the object in focus not affected, but the not in focus are?
Wouldnt this change the axis on the in focus object too?

Lenses / Re: 17-55mm... should I keep it or sell it???

Call me a snob.
But I never liked the idea of having a lens I can only use with a one kind of body.
My 2 €- cents.
