K3nt I would love to see your specific Aperture 3 preset settings, if you can post them  :D

By the way, nice shots!

Merry Christmas!

... also the "behind the scenes" feature is very interesting. Specially watching the conditions the conditions the camera-men had to shoot in. Also the drone used for the air filming...

...you could watch this breathtaking short-film taken with 5d(markII?) and 7d (not the underwater and air footage though).

Breathtaking story, killer filmmaking about, probably, one of the most dangerous ways of living you can have.


EOS Bodies / Re: Adorama is selling 5d3 for $2745 on eBay now

digitalrev dropped the 5dm3 price by £50 two days ago, so hopefully this trend keeps going strong....wish i'd live in the us then i would've bought a 5dm3 already...f*cking overpriced in europe...

In Denmark the price of the Mark iii also just dropped by 50 USD ( 30£). My first thought was 6d is coming soon...
So now the cheapest mark iii (body only) goes for 4200 $. I'm sure y'all thinking: What a bargain!!!  :o

I do all my post-processing with my MacBook Pro, 16gb RAM, and 512gb SSD.  It's super fast for anything that I throw at it.  The key is getting at least 8gb RAM and the SSD.  The SSD makes a world of difference.

Chewy734, what file sizes do you throw at your machine? And which PP app do you use?
I'm considering going the MacBook pro route, so I'm curious about what it can handle...

Look at:

What about for Mac?? eoscount works only with Windows...

EOS Bodies / Re: Announcements Before Photokina
« on: September 05, 2012, 01:04:15 PM »
I was (and still am) hopping for a "6D" as many people here.

If nothing comes, I'm left with 2 options:
1- 5diii: a too expensive and a bit overkill (for me) body and no glass
2- or 5dii: a 3 year old body (which is fine apart from the outdated AF)+ 1-2 good glass

Putting it like this, it would be logical to go with option 2. But I must admit that I'm no better than the regular consumer:
I want something new!!
I guess I'm just as brainwashed as many others and find it very difficult to buy a 3 year old body (for new, if I was buying used, it would be another story) 

Portrait / Need help with group picture!!
« on: August 29, 2012, 07:44:13 AM »
I took this picture yesterday, and I really want to give this guys the best picture (and memory) possible.
So I would love to have some input from you guys on how to make the best out of this on Aperture or Photoshop.

So far I've done these changes:

Appreciate any help!

Hi there,

I'm strongly considering buying a 5dii, but I'm wondering if it would be wise to wait until photokina and see if prize goes down.

What do you think? will the prize of the 5dii change if a new entry full frame is introduced?

I do a lot of event work for DU, and two Alien Bee B800s with 42" shoot-thru umbrellas do the trick every time...

justsomedude, would you mind sharing a link of an example of the umbrellas you mention?
I'm taking some group pictures in about a week, and going to rent some light for it, so I would be very interested in suggestions about how to light them up. Just as the o.p. I have a 580 ii and a 430...

« on: August 22, 2012, 09:22:49 AM »
Lawless, I'm definitely waiting til october.
By then I should have saved enough money to buy a 5Diii, and if a new entry full frame is announced, I would probably by it with the 24-105 Kit lens (+ my 50mm 1.4 and 85mm 1.8 I should be ok...for a while  ::)
Then selling my EF-s lenses should provide me about the cash I would need to buy a new 13" MacBook pro... ;D

I'm excited about this new plan!!!!
Thanks everyone for your input, ideas and comments. It's been very helpful!

I also bought a 13" MBP instead of the MBA with photography work loading then dumping information off an SSD is not great for them anyway. With a MBP you can remove the DVD drive add a 750gb HDD in there with a caddy and stick a 128gb SSD in the normal HDD bay so gives you the best between space and speed. The SSD for system and HDD for storage. You just move the home file directory from the SSD to the HDD. 
Also same as you I have a 40D doing similar things but a much broader range of subjects, and I am going for a 5D MKIII. At 1600ISO the 40D quality is pretty bad but 6400ISO on the 5D MKIII the quality will be equivalent and probably better so you have a lot more room for manoeuvre. Therefore 1.4 will be fine. But with FF comes the rest of the glass if you glass is EF-s. So more cost.

Hard choice but I would go camera, even tho it may take longer in post at the end of the day the camera is what makes the money not the computer. The camera will give you more keepers and you can make more money then you will be able to upgrade your machine. I would say buy some more ram and do a complete backup of your iMac and start a fresh it will speed everything up.

tomscott, thanks for your advice. It sounds like an interesting idea to have both SSD & HDD... is it difficult to switch the DVD drive with a HDD?

...and good point about camera making the money  ::) even though in my case it's not that much money...
