Reviews / Re: Scott Kelby's Promo Videos
« on: September 18, 2014, 11:30:22 PM »
Scott Kelby, up until July 2013, was a Nikon-only lover. Canon began sponsoring Kelby training trips. Canon loaned him a 1dx to shoot a NFL game. He became addicted to its AF and fps and fell in love with the ergonomics. He has sold off all of his Nikon gear

I've found him to be a cheerleader, like all Explorers of Light, for the gear he uses, but, mostly accurate. I used to subscribe to Kelbyone training, but didn't renew because he didn't put up new content faster than I was consuming. I just use lynda.com and youtube for training.

I started using Canon when I picked up a used AE1.

There is no wow in this camera. I'll wait for the reviews, doesn't seem like a camera to jump on out of the gate. It seems to be a me-too-ish camera

Photography Technique / Re: Tethered Shooting with 5D III & Microsoft Pro 3

I'm looking for a tethered, Live View solution for macro imaging.

Does Live View work with both DSLR controller and LR 5.x, tethered (realize different OSes)

If the BackyardEOS does crazy fine grain focusing, then, I would lean towards Win8.x

Alan, what settings did you use to be able to use Raw at 1200mm? I thought it was only jpeg. Thx

I'd like to see capture video, say, of a baseball game during the day, perhaps as the pitcher throws the ball and the batter gets ready to hit, and then pull a frame from the 4k video and present the still. Thx
