Lighting / Re: Have you used Honl gold/silver reflector/snoot?
« on: June 20, 2014, 02:28:04 PM »
Dear Perio.
I use Hon, both for Snoot and Up light reflector , Very easy to bring them in the long trip.
I love them special for Macro Photography, to control the light on the subject, and let the back ground dark with high shutter speed.
Enjoy.

Beautiful pictures of the rose Surapon. I don´t think they sell Honl in Norway, but they sell the Rogue ones, are there any differences?

Dear Friend Mr. Quasimodo .
Thank you, Sir for your good words , that make my days.
I have both---BUT, HON is easy to make flat  to keep in the backpack when I travel, Roque id quite a big size to carry on airplane.---Yes, You can Make HonL( Similar ) by use the Black thin card board ( or Thin Black or White Plastic sheet) size 22 CM X 30 CM, and glue the Alum. Foil on another side, And Use Rubber Band , or Velcro for Fastener = Bingo.
Good luck
Surapon

PS. I use Roque for Studio light, Just for Control Hair light on the back side of the model---That can Adjust the angle of the light with out interfere to  the camera in the front.

Thank you Surapon, I just bought the Rogue Portrait kit, and I will try to replicate your rose shot :)

A question if anyone has time. Is it possible to program the 1Dx to have four point expansion on the AF in AI Servo, while having only center point (without the expansion) in One Shot? I have my AI Servo programmed on the AF-ON button, and the One Shot on the star button next to it.

I don't think you can do it when you simply switch to One Shot, but you can have the * button to bring up anything, and if you go to the menu and assign a setup to the * button you can do it.

I have case 6 and 4 point expansion on the * button, switch to One shot with one of the two front buttons, spot focus on the other, because I can combine those with the two AF setups on the AF-ON and *.

Ok, thanks Viggo. I'll just have to live with the hassle to change it manually as I am quite pleased with the AF-ON (AI Servo) and * -  One Shot setup :)

I feel this morning that it is time for confessions....!

Despite the time I use in this forum reading and commenting on the different lenses and bodies, I was not able to pay attention to the bodies and lenses used by the photographers on the sideline during the match between Brasil and Croatia.. ;( The game was too exciting, so I cannot report on prototype lenses or potential 7DII..

Again, I am sorry, and I feel that I have not lived up to the responsibility as a CR member..

This baby is one of the many many children living in the Tanauan Tent City 7 months after Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines.

Beautiful and important picture

Whilst I was having lunch during a shoot, this little fella comes and sits a few metres away. I quickly put my sandwich down and grab a quick shot.

400mm, 1/1000, ISO 400, f2.8

Very nice

Took one of my boys yesterday, 1Dx and the 200/2L

1Dx + 200/2 = What a dream combo :)

Yes I agree :) apart from the weight..

My first was the 24-105 as a kit for the 5D II, then got a bunch, but recently find myself using it more and more.

Fantastic shot, and I love the colors.

EOS Bodies / Re: Debating on selling my 5D II and 35L/135L for a...
« on: May 30, 2014, 06:53:00 PM »
I have to say that I am impressed with your combo. You mention only the 5D II and the 35L and 135L, and none of these are kit lenses for that camera. That tells me that you either bought the house separately, and/or that you got rid of your 24-105 (or 24-70L), from which I deduce that you have no compromises for quality. I think you will find that the 5DII and 135L combo will be hard to beat from a IQ perspective.

I agree with some of the posters here talking about fatigue/being uninspired right now. The 5DII resale price is very low now, so you are not in a hurry to get rid of it. I would wait and see if inspiration comes back. And of course get rid of the grip if it bothers you.
