Reviving an old topic because the moon is awesome.

Had some better conditions tonight to try a shot of the moon with and without the Kenko 3X extender on the Tamron 150-600mm

Nice cold conditions with a clear sky. I had to crank up the ISO because the moon is so narrow tonight.

This is without the Kenko:

This is with the Kenko:

No post production, no noise reduction. This is straight from the camera, only cropped to loose most of the black sky.

I personally have the idea that the 3 times magnification actually gives less detail. So that makes it not a very good combo.

the 3x extender performs well on the 50mm and the 85mm, which makes it a nice addition to my bag.

EOS Bodies / Re: NEW CAMERA - EOS 80D?

http://youtu.be/PtNrM6aTwcY This videos shows a SLR hidden by the users hands using NFC to connect the connect station, I don't think any Canon DSLRs have NFC yet. I guess that they just put a top lcd on the 750d.

If you pause the video at the 0:39 mark and look closely, that's a fixed lens that looks like Canon PowerShot SX530 HS, which does apparently have NFC.

Yes but what about at 0:46?

Just posted that screenshot.  It looks like a Rebel.

Rebel tiny popup flash.

I think they had to show that body to be able to show the NFC tech. If they use an existing camera they would be lying to us. Now they only have to hide the exact camera, while we already know new rebels will come.

My thought exactly. Amazing how actors can hold a camera so it is completely hidden from the viewer :-)

Do you have a cat? I had this once, and found out my cats fur was occupying the space where the cpu fan used to be.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Card images failed transfer error on 5d3
« on: November 17, 2014, 05:07:31 AM »
Thanks all, I have some stuff to try.

The cards are indeed different in size, but I don't think that's an issue.

As for the iBashing, I have been leaning towards swapping the iPad for a Samsung because of the remote control options you gain. But it still wont take a CF card directly I believe. A USB connection is also possible with an iPad for image transfer. It is however terribly slow.

The method I use is the one outlined on from page 277 of the manual. I am on the latest firmware. And as for a bad card: I'm in denial ;-) cause that would mean I need to spend big on new cards instead on the wide zoom I'm wanting to buy.

Thanks so far, I'll report back when I A) lose all my images due to a card failure or B) fix this problem like a pro

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Card images failed transfer error on 5d3
« on: November 15, 2014, 07:40:02 AM »
I have a recurring problem in my workflow where i transfer images from cf to sd in camera, but the camera gives an error about card transfer history.

This seems to happen after i format both cards in camera, and after a while it goes away and i can again transfer images in camera.

The trouble is that when i am on location with my ipad, i have no way of reviewing the images on a larger screen. The ipad only takes sd, and i only shoot to cf.

Does anyone know a solution to this problem?

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Announces CN20x50 Cine-Servo Ultra Zoom Lens
« on: October 17, 2014, 05:24:25 AM »
So, aperture:

T5.0 at 50-560mm
T8.9 at 1000mm
T7.5 at 75-840mm
T13.35 at 1500mm (1.5x)

And it will come in EF mount version as far as I can tell from the specs page:

Auch, that is a steep price. I allready thought my 8-15mm was expensive.

So, I promised to come back to this topic when my Kenko 3x extender got in. And its in. Its throwing lens errors however, so I had to fiddle around a lot before I could get it to make pictures.

When no lens is attached it errors, and with the Tamron 150-600 it errors. It does however work fine with the 85mm. So i'm not sure whats going on.

I ended up taping up all the pins on a 12mm extension tube, and put that between the body and the kenko.

The moon is still a bit low right now for the best shots (humid air and all that), but I shot a video to show what the field of view is on this combo.

Here is the link: http://youtu.be/Xhz4ux7F8BQ

:edit:

Moon is bit higher now. i did a shot with and without the kenko from the same position. Lens fixed on the tripod.

http://blog.quicksetup.nl/images/1800mm.jpg

The fringing on both setups is about the same. These shots were set to b&w because I like the moon best that way. Apart from that and cropping I did nothing.

Just to point out...the moon is out of focus there. Which is expected, since you used an extension tube...that kills infinity focus in favor of closer focus than the lens' default MFD. You wont' be able to sharply focus the moon until you remove the extension tube.

I noticed twisting off the lens a bit also allows for shots to fire, as the lens error is no longer present.

What would you say should be my f stop on the lens with the 3x attached? I think I can go pretty low with the shutter speeds, about 1/160 to only counter the moons movement, as I have a pretty sturdy tripod.

Really awesome how the first two pictures in this topic have the exact same shadow line on the moon.

I've bought a 3x extender to pair with my 150-600mm for some moon shots. Its still in the mail. I hope it gets here on a clear night so I can snap pictures of the moon. It will give me f/tiny however, so I'm not sure how it will work out.

Two people taking a picture of the same thing at the same time....that could explain why they look the same :)

I would love  to see the shots through your 3X extender... Please post them for us  when you get some....

I sure will. I'm also keen to know how well a 85/1.8 3x extender combo works. Might be rubbish, might be a really cool long prime.

Lenses / Re: Your favorite older EF lens
« on: September 03, 2014, 03:23:43 AM »
I think a lens should surprise to be a favorite. I really liked the 50mm 1.8 metal mount, but it just did as advertised. The lenses that really surprised me were the 55-200mm, and the 35-80mm f/4-5.6 Powerzoom. Both I bought for 5 euros, both were a gimick, and both performed really well. That Powerzoom on a rebel in full auto is something monkeys can handle, and it produces decent pictures. My copy is a bit yellow. But for 5 euros. Who cares!

Lenses / Re: Another standard zoom advice topic
« on: September 02, 2014, 09:10:55 AM »
Do you find yourself switching a lot from your 24-70 zoom to your 85 prime for the additional reach? If so, that would be another vote for the 24-105, in addition to the other recommendations already posted.

I'm on my second 24-105, and really appreciate the extra reach beyond 70mm. (I also have 50- and 100mm primes.)

The difference in framing from 70 to 85mm is usually the same as taking two steps forward. Normally 70mm is fine for a portrait, and with the MP count on the 5d3 you can always crop the sides off an image. So that is no issue. The basic choice between the 24-70 and 24-105 is price and quality. A stop more stabilization and the latest in lens tech might out way the price difference.
