EOS Bodies / Re: Sample Images From the EOS 7D Mark II

and I got sidewinded (if that is the correct word)

I think you mean sidetracked. I could get sidetracked from my FF cameras too.......the 7DII looks like very good value compared with the FF cameras.
Maybe "broadsided" by the announcement? I really didn't expect the 65pt AF system, that blew me away (at least on paper) I'm yet to see how it really performs.
Broadsided is probably the right word, like a torpedo. This mythical beast (judging by the many years of rumors and the general longing) suddenly became real. The AF is great (per spec), but for me it is the overall package. If the IQ is really as good as it bears tidings of, it will become a camera I own quite soon :)

I have to say... I am about to sell either my 17F4.0L TS or 8-15L and stuff to get this camera (lenses I hardly use). Just a few weeks ago I was thinking about how to get money for two additional 600ex rt´s (in addition to the three I have), and I got sidewinded (if that is the correct word) by this anouncement. I have to have it, and it will be the only camera I have in addition to my 1Dx. The only complaint I have (and that is a minor one...) is that it has not got built in radio triggering capabilities for the 600´s (and the others to come).

Elsewhere, someone worked on a 7DII raw file and found rather clean shadows:

This is way out of my expertise, and all though it looked good from a shaddow point of view, I would have liked to see a few more examples. The steel railings (which in the original is quite dark) are somewhat smudgy in the shaddowenhanced picture. I am not sure if that is the way the steelrailing looks inherently, but could also resemble some sort of banding, could it not?

A very good idea

Dear "J,"

I suppose I should not be surprised that you chose to announce the end of our relationship in such a public and cowardly way. You were never one for subtlety and discretion.

And, so typical of you to blame all the failures on me. As though you contributed nothing to the breakup. But, then, I guess since you contributed so little to the relationship, I should not be surprised.

The truth is, I've known for a long time this wasn't working. If I could have ended things myself, I would have. But as you know, for me this was an arranged marriage. You picked me and I had no say in the matter. For the honor of my family (and honor is something my culture values very highly) I could not leave you.

At first, your clumsy attempts to satisfy me were amusing and not without a certain boyish charm. But, honestly, it quickly became apparent that you were never going to improve. In fact, I soon realized that you actually thought you were good. I know this is hurtful to say, but since you are the one that began this public conversation, I think honesty is justified.

Never once were you able to bring me to my full potential. No, let me be more candid, never, ever did I come remotely close to achieving the heights I was intended for. You would fiddle with my dials and move my joystick, but it was so mechanical and uninspired that I could hardly bear it. Honestly, most of the time I wished you would just stick to the green box and let me do it myself.

And the trips...well, what can I say? Sure, I enjoyed them, but it was as though you thought that simply going someplace new would solve all our problems. All it did was make me long for the relationships that I saw others enjoying. How I wished that could have been us. But you...all you ever did was worry about whether someone else had a newer, prettier model hanging on his shoulder. 

You were so obsessed with showing me off that you didn't see how many of your fellow travelers lovingly treated their lowly Rebels with respect and appreciation and how they were rewarded in ways that you and I could never achieve together.

Yes, I saw the world. But, really, I would have traded it in a instant for a quiet little town in the Midwest, with someone who understood me and what I was meant to do.

Now, dear D810, believe me, I wish you no ill. In fact, I actually feel sorry for you. I know people say you are nothing more than an overinflated mass of silicon, but I know better. We are both from established families and, like me, you have not had any say in this relationship.

I would like to wish you a long and happy relationship, but I suspect that won't be the case. In the end, you will be blamed for everything. Just remember this. It is not you...it's him.

Hillarious :)

Lenses / Question for Reikan Focal Pro users
« on: July 01, 2014, 05:22:49 AM »
I have a couple of questions regarding the Reikan Focal Pro.

When callibrating on my 1Dx, is it possible to have two values programmed for a non-zoom lens? When I have callibrated my 135L with the focus limiter on 1.6 meters it gives me a AFMA of +5, but when I callibrate it on the .9 meter, it gives me a value of +3. Can I have both, and will the camera recognize which setting I have on the lens?

Second, and related. How do you put in two values for a zoom lens, say the 70-200 @70 and @200?

In advance, thanks.

nice recovery PBD...very nice.

what's your workflow on something like this?

i shoot sports and it would be nice to improve my "face under the helmet" shadows.

north

Thats pretty impressive :)

Hey there Northstar,

It wouldn't work on most images, I stole the good eye and copied and pasted it then did a free transform over to the other side of the face.
