You can leave them in the CP E4.
If you use the flash with the CP E4 regularely, you will be forced to take them out for charging.
And take a few thoughts about custom function 12: different POVs around, I prefer the version energy for the flash only from the CP E4.

I love ideas like that.
4mm difference seems not to be very much, but makes a difference in wide angle.
At f2.
Worth a look.

I believe a non- pro like me suffers much more by "GAS".
Pros work with their equipment, I like or love using it.

Pro should only mean "makes his/her living with it".

Newly arrived- even when they are the famous eneloops, and I have 100+, yes, charge them. If you have the time, discharge them first.
Loading current: I have the Maha 808, set at soft, this is 1000mA. I dont know the Maha you have, but if you have time: the less the better.
And CP E4: definitely YES. More power, faster recycle time.
Good luck!!

What I like on the latest Rawconverter updates, that they still work as a plugin for CS6.
If I remember correct: in the past, in the time of CS3, CS4 and 5 the latest plugin was only for the actual version of the CS.
Do I remember correct?

Anyway: thanks for the info, and is already updated.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Thinking of swapping a 5d3 for a 1D4.....
« on: December 15, 2013, 02:22:40 AM »
I own the 1D4 and the 5D3.

Pro 1: fast, better AF in Servo- mode- (the spot AF of the 5 I am not always able to set where I want if I follow a moving subject..... my fault), 10fps is ok, but the bigger buffer is sweet.
Focus points spread wider.
Better jpegs out of the cam
Pro 5: bit better IQ
latest sh** in flashing technology
better noise and AF in low light.
And the second knob on the battery grip I miss on the 1....

So: I am glad to have both.
If its going to be fast: formula 1.
If I am on holiday, have time and need some extra less mm focal length: gimme five.

If I HAD TO decide: very small edge for the 1.
If it has to be fast and reliable

Qualification is depending on the equipment.
Look at Canon online, what gear is necessary to qualify.
And what the benefits are.

Thanks a lot for posting!

The thing, that surprised me most is the difference in zooming in combination with the grids.
I (was wrong) thought, it makes no difference, because the grid bundles the light.

Hm. And thank you again!

The bunny and the leg:
you are right: you know it, and so it annoys you.
I wouldnt have noticed that.
BUT: if you try to tilt this in PP the bunny would look funny.....
I would leave it like it is.
Its a uncommon angle, so it is acceptable as "point of view".
Cute bunny, and a nice shot of it!!

Maybe a little conversation with the people who make this book would be helpful.
The PP- human sure knows what he likes to have and what not?
Wishes and no-gos.
Sounds all a bit diffuse to me.
Sorry, just my first thought I read it.

Pardon me : auto iso with flash?
Didnt even know about that!
Living is learning!

And yes: HSS has less reach/consumes more power.
Could be the reason for the dark second and third frame.

Hello from Austria!

Canon General / Re: Why Wedding Photographers’ Prices are “Wack”?
« on: December 09, 2013, 02:35:45 PM »
Wedding pictures is nothing you need like a hospital or a flat/house.
So take the price or leave it.
It has a reason why good wedding fotographers cost that money.

My 2€- cents.
