Third Party Manufacturers / My Sigma 150-600 review
« on: March 03, 2015, 07:18:10 AM »

Canon General / Do More Mega Pixels translate in a richer photo?
« on: February 27, 2015, 03:20:32 PM »
I am very confused and would appreciate any thoughts:
Will the extra pixels of the new cameras make images look better - sharper/richer/subconsciously more impact full than 5d3 on my computer screen or a 2ft by 3ft print?
I think it should. The extra mp is not just for zooming in.
Your thoughts pls...

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 1Dx replacement speculations.
« on: February 23, 2015, 05:51:51 AM »
The 50mp Canon announcement and the 12 fps rumor of the 5d4 has gotten me thinking: What would the 1dx replacement be like? What do you think? How would it beat the 5ds and the rumored 5d4? It has to be something great..

Photography Technique / Does this photo work?

Am confused if this looks ok or not. Please critique. Appreciate. Is the chroma boost hurting?

I got a package deal for Safari and my friend and I were going but she can’t now because of work and I am extending this offer to anyone who loves Africa/photography and perhaps can’t do this on his own.
Safari starts Feb 15th (possible to change that by few days I think).
Area: Masai Mara.
Lodges: Cottars Camp, Elephant Pepper camp, Elsa’s Kopje and Lewa Safari camp.
Please Google these camps and see how great they are. Also check their prices to realize how great my deal is!
Total: 5,700 USD per person for 2 people.
This INCLUDES: All internal airfares/transfers, Safari (I almost always manage to get a private vehicle), all meals, conservation fees, tips.
EXCLUDES: Airfare to Nairobi and back from your city.
I will be carrying my 1dc, Sigma sports 150-600, Canon 16-35 f4 IS.
Please inbox me if you have any questions.

Third Party Manufacturers / Sigma 150-600 sports testing
« on: December 29, 2014, 02:00:51 AM »
I get my Sigma 150-600 sports lens after two days. I will like to test it and put up a report.
Is there anything specific you would like to be tested? I will test it on the 1dx. Is that fair (as many will not use it on 1dx) or I should test it on 5d3? The camera would not change the IQ as such only the AF speed I am assuming.

Third Party Manufacturers / Bought Sigma 150-600, should I buy the dock?
« on: December 17, 2014, 12:18:19 AM »
This is my first non canon lens. I do not have any idea how the dock thing works. But now since I have bought this lens do you Sigma owners recommend me buying the dock? Thx.

Canon General / Sensor life
« on: December 14, 2014, 10:01:03 AM »
Is there something like 'sensor hours' before it goes bad? After a certain amount of clicks the shutter mechanism needs to be replaced but how about sensor?
Before video I am not sure if this mattered but now with so much video being shot on DSLR does the sensor go bad after a certain usage?
thx for any input!

EOS Bodies - For Video / 1dc life span
« on: December 13, 2014, 09:19:15 AM »
I have been using the 1dc as second camera on features lately and also renting it out quite a bit. So much so that it seems like I need to buy another body to keep up with rentals.
My concern is that what if something new with internal 4k recording is released into the market soon, the resale value of the 1dc will drop dramatically.
What do you all think? Thanks for any suggestions.

Post Processing / Post processing opinion/advice
« on: November 28, 2014, 09:52:26 AM »
Sometimes a photographer takes a pictures and finds it interesting and needs a second opinion on post processing. I am at that stage on this photo.
Am attaching unprocessed and my version. Pls advice. Any pointer is welcome.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / For 1dx owners
« on: November 27, 2014, 02:29:52 AM »
What would you require in the next 1dx replacement body to make you upgrade? I can't think of much.
I will not upgrade if only:
1. It added 2 fps speed.
2. 4 mp.
3. Slightly larger spread of AF points.
4. 1/4 stop ISO improvement.
5. 4k (But that is because I actually use the 1dc)

I am so content with it that I would need something really special to want to upgrade. You?

Canon General / Does Canon really deserve this?
« on: November 22, 2014, 07:07:25 AM »
I browse this website quite often since 2012. I have never seen so many negative comments about Canon these days in comparison with before.
Does Canon really not satisfying its customers lately or is it that there are new members in the forum who like to put down Canon in comparison with other companies?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 1dc = Free beer
« on: November 04, 2014, 05:18:26 AM »
Funny story to share. I was in the walking street at Pattaya with my 1dc and 85mm trying to get photos and went for dinner.
The waiter was fascinated by the camera, started playing with it and soon the manager joined in. I ended up teaching them back button focusing. They googled the camera and were so impressed that they sent me beers on the house.
