Lenses / Selling 200-400
« on: October 04, 2014, 05:37:08 AM »
Not very happy with this decision as the lens is quite good. But just for use once a year, am not sure if I should hold on to it.
Will buy the Sigma 150-600 sports. But will it be available before my next trip in Feb is the question. Do you think I should wait till the trip is over before selling? What if I sell and the Sigma does not deliver?

Btw the 200-400 is good but I got lots of over exposed shots when I engaged the 1.4x. Perhaps operator error but but not sure...


Around 6 years ago when I restarted photography after 15 years (film to digital) I found Juza on internet and learned a lot from his website.

Post Processing / Too much chroma?
« on: September 03, 2014, 11:24:29 AM »
Friends does this photo look like it has too much chroma? Does it seem over processed?

Pls pls do advice, I think this photo has potential but I do not want to kill it with over processing. Thx in advance.

Software & Accessories / Star details
« on: September 01, 2014, 01:13:17 PM »
I had seen someone post photos of night sky and had used a software to get lots of stars pop out.
Does anyone remember that post? I would appreciate being pointed to that.

I loved this video. Do not get me wrong: I love great gear but this video made me smile…

Lenses / Selling my two Zeiss lenses. Your advice?
« on: July 26, 2014, 01:35:42 PM »
I have 3 Zeiss lenses: 15mm. 35mm 1.4 and 135mm f2.
I am thinking of selling the 15 and 35 because:

15mm: IQ of Canon 16-35 f4 is very close to the Zeiss at all f stops. Zeiss has better distortion and f2.8 but the IS on the Canon more than makes up for all this. Besides Canon has auto focus, is lighter, has zoom advantage and is cheaper.

35mm: When I bought it (and actually still) this lens had the best sharpness on 35mm. But now the 35mm f2 IS has very similar qualities and has autofocus, is lighter and cheaper. I bought the Zeiss for one very specific kind of photos - the late dusk photos when the sun has almost gone and stars start to appear and I thought the 1.4 opening would be great. Modern cameras and the 35 f2 will give me very similar IQ.

Will I miss the f1.4 of the Zeiss? I am not sure as practically speaking the OOF back ground of f1.4 vs f2 is not so noticeable and it was very tough to get perfect focus with the Zeiss at f1.4.

Anyone has any advice for me?


Oh, the 135. I think I will keep it for now, it feels so nice in my hands and is great for tripod portraits.

EOS Bodies - For Video / Strobe in magic lantern playback?

Does the playback on 5d3 (when recording RAW) using ML strobe? :(

Technical Support / CF CARD speed question. Am ignorant.
« on: July 04, 2014, 06:29:26 AM »
Hi friends.
I am going to Tanzania for 3 weeks in August and will shoot with 1Dc and 5D3. I recently bought 128gb cards for video on  1dc.
My confusion/question: Will the 128 gb cards be slower than the 32 gb 1000x cards? If I use the 128 GB cards with the 1dc will it slow it down? Read/write/buffer speed on the 1dc is more important to me than size of card. I am anticipating using the 12fps of the 1dc quite a bit and do not want the card to be a bottle neck.

If the 128 gb card will indeed be slower, then I will just carry the 32 gb 1000x cards.

Thanks for your time, and I will not be shooting video.


Canon General / Is Australia Canon's favorite?
« on: June 19, 2014, 01:53:09 AM »
How come the new 16-35 is already for sale in Australia but not in rest of the world? Cant figure this one out…  :o

Canon General / CF CARDS
« on: June 11, 2014, 12:46:59 AM »
Are CF cards really on their way out? Can smaller, flimsier SD take their place? Why do I keep hearing people talk like this?

Pls advice. I am heavily invested in CF cards. Will they all be obsolete in coming years?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 7d2 IQ thoughts.
« on: May 26, 2014, 05:31:39 AM »
Most of you have been using Canon for long and have been following its progress.

I realize 7d2 it will be fast, responsive etc etc. but do you think the IQ will be noticeably better than Canon's latest 70D say at ISO 1200?

I am wondering when (and if ever) the latest crop cameras will be able to compare with 5d2. Is 6 years enough for technology to reach a point where new crop camera's catch up to full frame?

I would be very happy if the new 7D2 quality would be close to 5d2. Wondering if that is too much to hope for considering the frame size difference?

Camera Body Gallery / The magic of 1dx 12 fps
« on: May 12, 2014, 03:52:03 AM »
1dx's 12 fps make certain shots a possibility which other camera's would struggle to get.

Please post any such photos you may have.

Here is one of mine. There were 3 of us on the ground with 1dx, 5d3 and 7d. But only the 1dx got this photo...
