EOS Bodies / Re: Much Ado About Nothing at NAB 2014 From Canon
« on: March 26, 2014, 11:57:09 AM »
More to come...

I'd hope so, because anything is more than the nothing we've seen so far...   :P

Even you now Neuro? Even you?

I will take criticism openly. I am here for that.

1dx. Zeiss 35mm f1.4

Your photo has a calming influence on me...the scene is so peaceful.   I like it.

Question, is that smoke in the background? 

Take care,
North

Hi North.
Yes, that is smoke. :)
I burnt some leaves trying to create a shaft but the sun was already too high...
Thx!!

more usefull than these focus ring bracelets.

but if i want a great photography t-shirt i design one myself.  ;D

And print it where? Actually question is: print it where there is proper colors, quality and durability?

I do not want to argue, but for me this seems bit irrelevant. If I am shooting anything with the slightest movement or if I am causing movement by hand holding, I need to be on servo.

If my camera is on tripod and the subject absolutely still, I would use live view to focus.

For my kind of photography: wildlife, street and such I can not be not on servo.

One shot and on top of that center focus point, do not know if that would work for me.

Lenses / Re: 16-35 II vs what?

I had the lens for a year. Did not like the corner sharpness at all when full open. Sold it.

lol...Rusty, you are one funny dude!  ;D


You think that's funny, check out what I changed my signature to today!   Bwaa Ha Ha!!   ;D


Funny...and I'm sure we would all agree that whatever Surapon said, it surely would be very respectful, friendly, polite, and helpful! :)

That is true. But I find you very helpful and polite as well!

And yes, if one did feel the need to have one shot, this is a great firmware update. Very thoughtful of Canon.
I am telling myself: If Canon thought there was a need to do this, then one shot must be 'sharper'.

Now I understand. Clearly understand. Thx much ALL!!!

However I am very surprised that servo will not focus on still objects. Everyone is saying that. But that has not been my experience so far. Or perhaps I have not noticed it. Hmmm.

Eml: You not only photograph beautifully but write beautifully as well.

Thanks for all the replies. The penny still fails to drop. It will one day, I hope. Currently either I do not know something or brain cells not working.
Perhaps soon I will have an 'ah ha' moment. Waiting.

sanj....your wrote "either i don't know something or"...could it be that you don't know that one shot is better(sharper)than servo for "non action" shots?   I'm sure you know this but I just thought i would point it out just in case. (i'm sure you do know because i've seen your awesome images)

the main reason for wanting the set up steve describes is to quickly and more easily switch from servo to one shot by having the buttons right next to each other.  ("af-on button" and "*" button)   (servo and one shot)

Northstar: No I did not know that 'one shot' is sharper than servo for still objects. I thought is was about getting focus, not the way one got focus. And I believe that once I get focus and I remove the thumb from the back focus, I am as good as 'one shot'. Am I wrong?

Having said all of this, I am positive that I am missing something... I will get it one day and go 'yeyyyy'.

Realize that the safari will end but the camera will remain with you. So choose the best camera, and not a camera just for this trip. Go with latest technology and select 5d3.

:( I do not understand. I have been using back button focus for a long while now and it seems fast enough. On the top lcd I leave it on servo focus.
What am I missing here? In any case I have the 1dx set exposure on the focus point.

Would love to understand this post, I constantly want to improve my technique.
