What metering and focusing modes were you using?

Auto focus and Evaluative metering.

I realized my folly. I went again to the location and re shot. I over exposed the Canon 1 stop and under exposed the Fuji by 1 stop.

There is huge difference between the two cameras.
What did I do wrong?

Both cameras:
3200 ISO. f1.4. JPEG.
Canon 5d3 with 35mm
Fuji XE2 with 23mm

It is not ISO problem for SURE.

profiling/calibrating by eye is pretty useless if you ask me.
the ambient light will effect your judgement.

prints reflect ambient light.
and as the ambient light changes you will adjust your monitor for a temp situation

do it the right way or don´t.
those shortcuts are useless.

withouth going to deep into it... make sure your monitor is not set to 300 cd/m2.
that´s one of the biggest mistakes... a brigthness that is set too high.
your monitor image may look fine to you but it´s bad for editing prints.
it´s way to bright and your prints will look dark.

keep in mind that paper only reflects light (it does not emit light like a monitor).
sounds banal but people often forget that. ;)

look at your prints indoors and outoors.
indoors you will alway have a different impression then outside on a sunny summer day.

my monitor is set to 120 cd/m2 and i have my ambient light adjusted for my workplace.

prints should be made for the light they are VIEWED under. 
that is why good galeries light every print. 

your whole system can be calibrated/profiled and perfectly color managed. if the light the print is viewed under is not the light you edited your print for.... there will be a visuell difference to the viewer.
WB is most obvious here... the white of the paper changes a lot when viewed under tungsten light and then under an 7000K LED light. so it´s not only your monitor... it´s also your viewing conditions you have to keep in mind.
another point is the black point. ;)
i do a lot of B&W prints and it´s not easy to get that right with print services.
black density differs from monitor to prints (papers).

what looks good on the monitor often is not (can not) be perfect for the print.
so i always make a extra print version that i edit especially for print output.
black point, white point, contrast, color adjustments etc.



Lenses / Re: Canon 24-105 vs canon 24-70 ii
« on: December 26, 2013, 12:33:07 AM »
I have both lenses and find the 24-105 far more practical because of the zoom range and IS. If I had to pick one of the other I would have the 24-105 for sure.
This is based on my thoughts that getting the picture is more important and the sharpness difference is not that much between the two lenses when it comes to real life photography. IMHO.

A kid asked me this: "I've been shooting with my 6d;70-200;and 580exii. My problem is how do I capture them running,dunking, etc if i can only set my shutter to 1/160 using my flash???!!"

What do I tell him? Pls help, he thinks I am a cool photographer but I really do not know how this works. I would love to help him and learn.  THX.

Ok, the EOS M Pro - when it gets released, if ever.

I'll be all over it, and the M->EF adaptor.


I currently own a G10, with a 270EX flash mounted on it constantly, that I'd like to replace with Canon's answer to the Fuji X-E2, Panasonic GF7 and Sony NEX-6. The G10 still takes great pictures though, if there's enough light.

And what is Canon's answer to the Fuji X-E2?

Nada. Zilch. Nothing remotely close.

This must be making all Canon fan boys rejoice.
But if it is indeed a problem and not something like what said about iPhone antenna, then it needs to be fixed by Sony asap as they created something lovely and technology must move on and not be stopped just as it starts. Be it a Canon or Sony or Nikon product.

Great talent trumps good equipment, yet that in no way diminishes the power of good equipment in the hands of great talent.

The notion that a great photographer can create the "Sistine Chapel" with a pinhole camera and expired film is a fallacy. A great photographer benefits, arguably even more greatly than others, from great equipment. A pinhole camera exposed on expired film can make a great, emotionally evocative photograph, but the chances that a 1D X with thousands of dollars worth of top shelf glass will create even more emotionally evocative photography on a more consistent and regular basis is still undeniable.

Of course yes! Totally agree.

On camera flash can work wonders for people who know how to use it creatively.
