Of my three Canon flashes I think the 600 actually gives pleasing results in ETTL mode on-camera straight on, thus avoiding the burnt out look that my other two gives in the same mode.

You can as have been mentioned here go for several 580 EX II (which you can get quite cheap now), thus paving the way for the use of a ST-E2. The 600 works fine like a slave (I have had a set up in studio with a ST-E2 and the 600 as main light, 430 as fill, and two 580's to blow out the background).

Lenses / Re: Do you wish your 70-200L were black?
« on: May 22, 2013, 04:27:10 PM »
Today for the first time ever I saw a refurbished 70-200L IS II 2.8 in stock. Never saw that before. Usually it's out of stock almost immediately.  It was very tempting! !! But I decided to hold on to my f4 version and a 135L. It's nice to combine them in one package but it's nice when I want to be stealthy with the 135.

The white color is too showy.  I always feel that it attracts unnecessary attention.

Boy...it's still tempting

It would look too much like a Nikon.. :) Kidding aside, - if it had the same temperature stabializing features as the white material in the 2.8 II, then maybe.

If you're not fluent in Japanese the US patent app with same priority is US20130082343A1

And here I thought that fluency in Japanese was a prerequisite for all CR members...... ;)

For those interested, here is from someone who reverse engineered the CR2 raw's:

From a data container perspective there's a lot to learn.

Haven't had the time to go through everything to answer OP's question whether there really is more raw data (read: more POWER ;-)) in the 1Dx raws or not.

Please enjoy the read:

Thanks! Looking forward to read it.

Beautiful pictures! I thought you would run into trubble with moving subjects like your water, but apparantly not.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Am I crazy to sell my Canon gear?
« on: May 20, 2013, 09:02:51 AM »
So after a long time being absent from photography I have decided that I want to stop my pursuit in becoming a semi-professional photographer.

That being said, I don't want to give up photography. I just want to be able to take good pictures for my personal portfolio! So I'm considering selling all of my Canon gear (Canon 5Dc, 17-40mm, 50mm, and 70-200mm) and buying a smaller set up that is unobtrusive.

I would probably get around 1,750 for everything in total. With that money, I planned on getting this set up:

  • Sony NEX C3 w/ 16mm f/2.8
  • Sigma 30mm f/2.8
  • Sony 50mm f/1.8

Anyways, am I crazy for going this route?

You are not crazy!

To me this is a either or, and I can feel your ambivalence. I think that if you do sell your gear, - stick with a compact. Why go to an inferior system, or a system at all? Buy a compact with a zoom or a fixed focal lenght. Other than that; you will wind up missing your gear.

Canon General / Re: Desired fantasy gear
« on: May 20, 2013, 08:37:53 AM »
I would love a body with option of full frame and crop with the flick of a switch.
This fantasy stems from something I read in this forum earlier. Was it a Nikon camera?
I do not know Nikon gear at all so not sure.

But something like this would be great for me. Advantages of FF and crop in the same body! While we are at it, let the crop have even faster frame rate.

I believe the Nikon D800 has this. It effectively becomes a built in TC. I would love that too.

I absolutely love it!

A bit envious too, lol. In Norway we only get these tiny lightening strikes, not like yours and the ones I saw when I lived in rural Illinois :)

I have posted the Haystacks picture in the lens gallery, but thought I'd pop it into the Landscape gallery along with another picture. They are both taken in the English Lakes District National Park, the first from a small mountain known as 'Haystacks", looking towards Crummock Water and Ennerdale Water, with High Stile in the middle, at 2,643 feet. I know many around the world will laugh at that height being a mountain ( not those in the Netherlands  ;D   ) but to us Brits it's a mountain.

Second picture is taken in Borrowdale by the River Derwent, looking towards Maiden Moor, a paltry 1,887 feet.

All on the 24-105 at f11, at which aperture this lens is as good as anything else really, especially after pp.

Beautiful pictures!

Here is one of mine. Nothing spectacular (except that I myself am amazed at the richness of it, given that the lightconditions were un-ideal and very high contrast). I stack them in Merge to HDR Pro.. in Photoshop CS 6. Taking the pictures and stacking them is fine, my problem is what to do in the window that pop's up. Do any of you have any good links to tutorials for this tool in CS 6?

Thanks,

G.


A good example of achieving an accurate rendition of the scene using HDR

Thank you
