I have the exact same questions. Few tips which I have learnt:
1. Keep the flash on 'high burst' to sync with fast fps shooting.
2. Keep the flash output to less than 50% for it not only to sync but also to recharge fast enough.

EOS Bodies / Re: Are These The EOS 7D Mark II Specifications?
« on: August 28, 2014, 04:25:21 AM »
still a rumor, people. don't take it as if Canon itself listed these specs.
so many people spewing their venom over something that is:

1 - NOT official announced
2 - a RUMOUR (this one is important)
3 - NOT tested and reviewed

people always commented "i want less MP for better ISO capabitilies" and blahblah, now that this rumor surprised everyone with "only" 20MP and not 24MP, it's not good. again.

the fact of the matter is, that newer CPU's always make some leap forward in regard of noise in High ISO shots. Digic6 should be no exception. what this rumour also reports, is:

- 10 FPS (same as 1D4)
- 65 AF point (BETTER than 1D4)
- Dual Digic6 (BETTER than 1D4)
- more MP (BETTER than 1D4)

but who cares about that. all you people see is that it supposedly has 20MP.

I would be happier with f4 IS.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Another Nikon full-frame

These threads crack me up. I am sure Nikon will bring out something a lot of people will love. While it is true that the Df didn't become mainstream (and I personally dislike the look and the concept), many people bought and loved it.
It is good for both camps that the companies are competing. Why bash something that hasn't even come out yet? I do feel that the Nikon lineup has a gap where a versatile FF dSLR equivalent to the 5DIII can sit, the same way Canon users can use a high megapixel, high DR one.


Thank you for taking the effort.

Am not convinced yet. There seems to be loop holes. I cannot put my finger on it yet. Will study this and post again.

In any case this will be an eye opener.

Business of Photography/Videography / Re: Photos used without permission
« on: August 08, 2014, 08:39:47 AM »
It's recently come to my attention that a business in my area has taken one of my photos from an editorial piece,

What venue was your photo used in an editoral piece?  When you submitted it to the venue, was there something in the fine print that gave this venue some rights?  Some venues are sneaky like that.

You also need to know whether the company took the picture from the venue or did the venue give the picture to the company.

I agree with the other posters.  Contact all the parties and in a civil manner ask what happened. It could have been a simple mistake/misunderstanding.

Good advice, many people just wouldn't think about this, they just see an image, like it and use it.  Often, not always, there's no bad intent, they simply don't realise.


Lenses / Re: Selling my two Zeiss lenses. Your advice?

Changed my mind. Not selling any of them. At least for now.

200-400. Only when I go on wildlife trips. Once a year max on average.
I'll be happy to "watch" it for you the rest of the year :)
2nd on the list, if Mac changes his mind.

Like your sense of humour. Or humor.

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 50 f/1.2L Goes Missing at Canon Germany

IMO, if Canon releases a new 50mm, it won't be an L version. I think it'll be either equal or slower than f/1.4, have IS, and be around the $600-$800 USD, so it fits right between the 1.4 and 1.2 L. A 50mm L II won't happen for a while and a 50mm w/ IS will just be good enough until Canon can come up w/ an answer to Sigma.

If they were talking about a camera,  why would they state "Get your camera ready"? My guess -a new online photo sharing service  ;)

You have a point!
