I took the 1Dx to the speedway last night.


I don't often shoot sport in low light but the 1Dx held my hand and helped me.



Great shot. Well done Skulker.

+1 terrific!

Thanks Click!

And Dylan, luckily I have not a single picture of my wife so the chance isn't even there  ;D I BARELY got to take 5 shots of her at our wedding, lol.

I think this is great, Viggo!  Thanks for starting something fun.

Thanks! Appreciate that :) I can see myself do this a lot of I get the hang of it. My kids find fun also, so I get more than one attempt, lol.

Hi guys!

I've seen a bunch of very cool caricatures online made in photoshop that I also want to do. I have limited experience in CS, but If you have more advanced advice, I'm okay with that.

I did a 20 minute try today, posted below. If you have any tips on how to improve, I'm sure you do!, please tell me. It's my first attempt so I know it's not perfect. I see people who do this the right way use edge lights on both sides, I have only one lamp now, so kind of limited in that way.

Wide open with the 200 f2.0 L. I should have had a 400 or 500 because it is heavily cropped  ::)


Very nice Viggo

Cheers!

If you hadn't mentioned I wouldn't have known it was a crop from a shorter lens.

Jim

Hehe, it holds up quite well despite the measly 18 mp  :P

I think I have to try out that lens.

Thanks guys! And yeah, Eldar it's by far the coolest lens I have owned ever. It simply is.. Razor sharp anywhere in the frame and the epic blur combined with no ca and no distortion and tje wonderful color and contrast and, and..  you get the idea  ;D

From an outing today. 200 f2.0 at f2. I had a few colorful leaves directly in front of the lens as an overlayed color blur that I shot through.

...the kind of wicked pincushion you'll get at 11mm.

You keep using that word.  I do not think it means what you think it means. 

Good grief. I know what it means. With the 10-22 on my 7D, at 10mm things appear "pinched" towards the center. Trees also get a much more significant tilt towards the periphery of the frame than with my 16-35mm.

From TDP:

"To cut the chase, I must say that I am very impressed by the lack of strong barrel and pincushion distortion in the 10-22. It is not perfect, but very good for this extreme wide angle focal length range. There is some barrel distortion at 10mm moving gradually to a slight pincushion at 22m. Slight enough distortion for me to be happy with the results."

Have had some calibration/AF issues with the 200 f2.0 L lately, after my camera was serviced. So today in the heavy winds, cats&dogs rain, thick fog, I went out to see if I could find some birds to try.

First one here is uncropped (yes they were very close) at f2.0 2500 iso.

Next one also uncropped, f2.0 and 1250 iso.

it seems I have gotten the calibration right this time. Loving this lens again after hating it for a couple of weeks.

Very nice Viggo. Those photos look razorrrr sharp.

Thanks! Yeah, things are looking up. Still very difficult with the kids faces, especially now with bright colored jackets that zip up to the chin and beanies that go down to the top of the nose, lol. Combine that with Case 6 movements and NO depth and you have the recipe for destroyed-delete-button-thumb syndrome.
