Off-topic: Does anyone know of any reference-ish media player? With some clips, I seem to get variations in different players unless I tweak them. Kinda makes it hard to compare files unless we specify players and codecs?

I am going for a shoot in the dessert during the next few days, will try to make a comparison between prolost and x if I get the time :)

Seems like a sensible move, anyone tried it yet?

This is so sweet, a pain having to wait for new CF's to ship before trying it out :)

What is getting hot, the CF card or the controller or both?
I recall friends using heatsinks on overclocked RAM, I wonder if one could modify a CF card for conductivity (or compel a company to do so)
After the announcement of the BMC 4K, the chance of me using the 1D C professionally has decreased alot, and overheating is an issue that I need to consider as we plan to shoot in full sun in Africa and other sauna-like conditions. Would be cool if someone with a 1D C (and good hands) would try modding a CF card and/or the CF card-door.
EDIT: I wonder if these would perform better?

I understand that we all have different needs, but personally, I get frustrated from the eternal incremental upgrades.
This thread again reminded me to go out and shoot instead of spending all day chasing dreams :)

[size=78%]The last one is my favourite of this stunning black and white study. Keep the good work up.[/size]
Thanks alot for your kind words :)
And I agree, many nice shots in this thread - thanks to all for sharing!

Thanks for sharing your observations. I have been saving for an external recorder, but  as it looks right now, I am thinking that I may be better off spending the money on glass and other additions to my kit.
Very nice that 1.2.1 is crisper but odd that we're not seeing bigger improvements on the external. I wonder if this is yet another effect of Canon marketing or what not.
Will you be posting further findings in this thread?

Sometimes before deleting my rejected pictures, I convert them to b/w and once in a while they turn into keepers :) Here are a few recent ones. Not sure if to crop them tighter and still trying to figure out sharpening...

agreed :D
Too damn high

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought a phenomenon was something amazing and hard to explain, rather than simply being a software bug or a hardware shortcoming.

" a phenomenon (Greek: φαινόμενoν, from the Greek word 'phainomenon', from the verb 'phanein', to show, shine, appear, to be manifest (or manifest itself)),[1] plural phenomena, is any observable occurrence."

Maybe someone should start a thread where we can compile a list of working 3. party batteries (and any possible tips or tricks concerning their usage))

I bought the cheapest ones a few years ago, and they seemed alright. Was just wondering if these cheap ones with electrical contacts actually work:)

Close-up filters are fun to play with, but the cheap ones are really terrible IQ wise, and the proper ones are so relatively expensive that I chose to get some cheap tubes and save for a decent macro/portrait lens. (Sold my Sigma 70-300APO super macro seeing as it was much worse than the cheapest +10 filter on my old nifty fifty.
Still, the cheap filters are fun to play with and always fits in a pocket, whereas (as already stated) the tubes takes a little more care and patience to use.
I have only tried the cheapest filters and they are so soft that I only really found them usable for playful abstract stuff (which CAN have its merit :D actually sold a print of the attached close-up filter experiment for the same price as the print+the filter :D )
