Technical Support / Re: Question about " FORMAT" of the memory cards.
« on: November 07, 2014, 04:11:12 AM »
If I can add a question.

I just bought two new Lexar 64GB 800x UDMA 7 cards from B&H. My plan was to add the one to my 1Dx (I have the same card there, and also a 32GB SanDisk in slot 2), so that is has two of these, then use the other new card for my upcoming 7DII, and use the spare Sandisk for backup. I read in another thread about a guy having trouble with his camera (7DII), and it seemed that it was due to the CF card, and someone suggested a deep-level?/low-format of the cards. Is this necessary? And if so, do I need to buy a program to do so, or is it something I can do on my Windows 7 64 bit system?

Thanks in advance.

Gerhard

I think it looks great, and I am now thinking that I will start to shoot in JPG and RAW simultniously :)

same im interested in your results ,   can get quite dark with a  red and a circPol set to the right  angle

I found a website yesterday with a matrix with filter factors, fstop increases, and what they do, that I found informative. fineart-photography.com/bwfilter.html

According to this, the 25a increases by three stops, so I guess that I will try it with the AE first, to be certain that I get the right exposure :)

I have no insights to provide here, but would like to hear what people have to say. I just ordered a Hoya 25a red filter yesterday for my Canon A-1 camera. That was not to blacken the sky, but rather to create more contrast/punch in the skies :)

I actually ended up with two new pieces of gear arriving the same day on Thursday (by coincidence) - the 7D Mark II and the 300 2.8 II... (a good day)

Anyway, I was off to Vegas to shoot the Erasure concert from the soundboard, so it was good timing.  I literally fired off a few shots before I left (to make sure it worked) and set up a basic manual profile and I was off.  So I never really shot either until I was at the concert. 

Luckily, I was able to shoot the full set of the opener to dial things in a bit, then had just three songs to shoot Erasure.  I tried a few things within that time to analyze later - shot the 300 on the 7DII bare and with the 1.4X extender, and also shot the 300 on one of my 5DIIIs with the extender.  I didn't have time to get to the 2X extender.

I shot both RAW and JPEG (JPEG to quickly use for my article and RAW in case I wanted to mess with after LR updates).  I thought I had set up the 7DII to shoot RAW to CF and JPEG to SD, but it ends up I had both going to the CF (which filled, then moved to SD).

Anyway, my main take away was that it shot like a much faster (in terms of number of photos/FPS) 5DIII.  I felt like I could keep taking as many pics as I wanted without choking the camera.

I'll play around with comparisons this week, but for me I am definitely convinced that this new 7DII is a winner.

Come on guys, how many more times do I need to check this thread before you guys-in-the-know are done with tinkering and can give us the answers we want? ;O

We don't wish to be accused of telling you what to think. ;D

LOL! Well, who knows what anybody thinks. But given that the playing with raw files so far have been in roundabout ways, not really giving us the information we are looking for, It would be fun to hear the educated opinions of the skilled members here.

1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx

I took the 1Dx to the speedway last night.


I don't often shoot sport in low light but the 1Dx held my hand and helped me.

Great shots Eli. You have to love the unique look the 200/2 gives. I borrowed one for a couple of years, and I miss it :)
