EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Would a 1 series have survived?
« on: August 22, 2013, 05:59:16 AM »
body looks to me like 60D, but i'm not sure about the lens (24-105?)

anyway, I think there is no way any EOS body would survive this without any waterproof case
I thought it might be a 17-40, but exif says 16mm so I think it must be one of the 16-35's. (Exif also says 60D, so kudos if you hadn't looked that up ;) ).

There's no reason to swap or sell a 7D for any other crop body. However, there is one feature which would change that, and that is in-camera IS.
A stabilized sensor means no stabilized viewfinder image. And especially for the longer lenses, I think that's a big turnoff.

One of the first pictures I ever took with my 400D, back in 2006... lucky, lucky, lucky :)

Leiden, the Netherlands, btw :)

I'd say you shouldn't overdo the sun stars, but the flare here looks like we have additional moons or something. Very nice effect :)

Maybe I should cancel the order.
Probably, but I can't confirm as I don't have the 6D. The model numbers under the usernames, anyway, change depending on your post count and have nothing to do with actual photography :)

what do you mean by blowuppable?
Don't know Blowup? I guess I could have been a little clearer ;D I mean: can you crop those images to get more animal and less surrounding green? Blow up the mole/duck details, as it were?

That is a stunning shot, if only for the contrast between the gutting and the cutesie paws on that rodent. Is that blowuppable?

[edit] Same question for the ducks shot :)

Sorry you have to do this.  You could charge a nominal fee, $1, to deter the spammers.  Not sure if many people would be  not enroll based upon the fee.
I wouldn't shy away from spending a dollar, but I'd hate to hand out my personal data to every forum I'd want to talk on. For that reason: no thanks :)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Color Bombs Kill Cameras
« on: May 08, 2013, 06:27:35 PM »
A colour bomb? Shame the article does not bother to explain what they are. I have never heard of such a thing. Off to google.......

Xperia™ Z TV Ad - Sound, vision, colour, detail from Sony. Featuring music from David Bowie - especially interesting in this regard is the footage around 0:50. Seems underwater housing might be required  ;D

About 4 minutes here too. The battery tests are of the bizarre sort - maybe because I use an (original) grip. I found that the warnings about fake batts are only given when the battery compartment has been opened, so you can switch your camera off and on again without having to answer the questions. So far, so good, and I can absolutely work with this.

With two Phottix batteries, however, it only complains about one (specifically the one to the right) and it refuses to doubt the other until you remove the one about which it was complaining in the first place. Same story with the two no-names from China. At first testing, it seem to correctly register battery capacity though, and the battery indicator is no longer blinking until the first shot (which I really hated)(edit: after going to sleep, it does blink. Dammit. /edit). I'll post back if I find different behavior.

The weirdest thing is, prior to the update, I used a borrowed guaranteed original LP-E6 from a 7D wielding friend, and it complained then, too.

And damn! I'm happy that I bought a 2x TC for my 70-200/4! I now have a 400/8 and it works faster than expected, too! Happy! More exclamation marks!

Nope. Couldn't care less about the video ;)

Here is a photo i took in loch lomond :-) 5dmk3 + 24-70 L natural light

That is not how I remember Loch Lomond at all. I probably should go back there and recheck.

So are all of the third party lenses still focusing correctly with this firmware version? I'd hate to think Canon would sabotage them with a firmware update but can't put it past them if they sabotaged third party batteries.

Just... ew.

Can't the ML community produce a version that just adds support for 3rd party batts again?
