Hey Cayenne,

Just, IMO,…I rarelly use in camera HDR processing with my 5D III.  Part of the fun is gathering your exposures and working with them in post.  I would agree that Photomatix is probably the best,…I also use Nik HDR Efex Pro,..they both are great.  Nik software plug-ins are great.  In camera settings, I use AEB with 1 stop exposure between each shot.  You can set this to take either 3 shots, 5 shots, or 7 shots.  Look on page 316 of the user manual to customize your AEB setting. ( I think this page is correct,..hopefully someone will correct me if I’m wrong,…thanks in advance…)  I actually set this to one of my custom settings on my mode dial with a 2 sec delay for quick access.  There are a lot of great sites on the net and YouTube to learn how various people handle their HDRs.

I absolutely agree with Neuro, there is just something about an image shot with FF.

Hey Everyone,
Just wondering what everyone’s experiences/opinions have been, or your current practice when traveling with a tripod on domestic and international flights.  Do you check your tripod in your check-in luggage or do you carry it on?  Any issues/problems with TSA?  I will be traveling with a RRS TQC-14 CF tripod.
Thanks for your thoughts!

I don’t take a lot of portraits, but I can’t get the 85mm f1.2 II out of my head,…it is just a very cool lens!!
At present, I would say that lens and the 24mm f1.4L II is on my wish list

Lenses / Lens to take to Ireland
« on: December 04, 2012, 12:39:41 PM »
Hey Everyone,

Hope some of you have some good advice, because I’m driving myself nuts!  I’m planning a weeklong trip to Ireland in mid January.  We will be in the South and West coastal areas and planning on indoor, street, and landscape shots.  I am planning on taking a 5D III with a 17-40mm f4, and 24-105mm f4.  I can’t decide if I should bring along my 70-200mm f2.8 IS also.  Love that lens, but it is somewhat heavy and does add to our gear.

I know this type of question has been tossed around a lot,…but, any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

So an ND 1.2 is 4 stops. Where can I get one of these crazy 10 stop filters? I've never seen more than a 1.2.
I got mine from Adorama,...it is a B + W 110 ND filter,...they are fun!.....

Hello everyone!

Have really enjoyed reading all the comments and photography related subjects in this forum. This has really helped my education process and I have come away with a lot of great information. Just wondering if some people could offer some help and/or advice on the Palouse in Washington State.

I’m planning on taking a landscape photo trip there in 2013, sometime in late May/early June. I know there are many photo tour groups and guides for hire, however I would like to simply go at it on my own. So far I’m planning on stating in Colfax and will at the least make several trips to Steptoe Butte.

Does anyone have any advice for a shoot in the Palouse?,..ideas, techniques, recommendations, general advice? I would greatly appreciate it!
Sorry for those who have read this on TDP...just trying to get the most advice

EOS Bodies - For Stills / AdobeRGB VS sRGB
« on: October 30, 2012, 10:15:11 AM »
Hey everyone!,

I hope I’m not bringing up an old post/topic (I think I am..) but would like some opinions and advice.  I was recently viewing an online instruction video and the instructor strongly advised the importance of setting your camera to the AdobeRGB setting as this was better than the factory setting of sRGB.  I have read that this isn’t very important and can actually cause some difficulties with labs attempting to process prints.  So,…what do people generally use?,…I am an amateur/hobbyist,…I usually shoot RAW with a 7D & 5D III.  Any thoughts?

Get the L.
I used one for my 7D. It was nice but not that wide,...I used a 10-20mm with it.  I then moved to a FF and that lens is a great all around lens,..and the constant f4 in very nice
