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

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

Software & Accessories / Re: How do you get rid of (de)banding noise?
« on: October 05, 2012, 08:45:09 AM »
I also shoot RAW with a 7D. Very happy with the camera, however my landscape images usually result in terrible vertical and horizontal banding noise in the sky.  Terrible noise at ISO 100.  Drives me nuts… I usually use Nik DFine 2.0 which helps a lot. I would like to give LR4 and/or DXO a try.  Interested to read what other peoples comments are from this post.

Very Nice Shots!! that first image is just awesome!!

right now, I use Aperture 3 with Nik and onOne plug ins...Nik IS GREAT!
