Update: I, like so many of us ordered one last night, and Onecall is sorting through the orders to match time and inventory.  The manager appears to have placed "back order" on the orders until they determine if they have enough inventory.  They say I'm getting the one I ordered.  I ordered 9:27pm PST.  If you ordered from them I would call them to verify.

I love my 100-400 mm and its old push-pull.  I can't wait to try it on my 5d3.  I use my 400 on BIFs and love it.  You have to get used to having such a limited field of view but like most things, you learn to use it and wind up with great pictures.

Good point about bracketing RC.  I'm going to have to try that.  Can't wait to see your photos.

Interesting shots Tcapp and you've given us a good case study which is greatly aided by the comments by kernuak. They are informative and a good learning experience for me.  Thank you both.

Darn!  I thought this was about Secret Service vendors in Colombia........

I pulled the trigger on the Adobe Creative Cloud for $50/month.  It would take me at least 30 months (cheapest price point, CS5) at $50 to buy the suite so I figure I'm good plus I get the free upgrades and the bonus....?  I don't pay the annual fee all at once, but at $50/month and collect interest on the balance. 

I couldn't afford the 5d3 AND the price of just one program much less the entire suite to support as it was, so this is an excellent alternative and I GET IT ALL on the 10th!!!! Hopefully.  Now I get CS6, Premiere Pro, and After Effects plus whatever else I have the time for.  I figure in 30 months I will know one of them well. 

Thanks Mt. Spokane and psolberg for the tips.

@ K-amps: what program did you use in post to sharpen?

@ K-amps: You did that handheld?  Geeze...... You don't need a tripod.  I took another one yesterday and got it sharper but I shot it at 1/1000th and with mirror lock.  It was sharper but not as sharp as Forceflow's.  I think Forceflow used a high ladder to take his with.

Nice job.  I want Canon to send me cameras to do a video....... and a tank.  That way I can impress the girls like the guy in shot 2.

Another thing to consider is the new Adobe software rental program.  (I forget the name). 

You are probably talking about the Creative Cloud which runs for 49.95USD/mo.

Yeah, you can either go with the cloud and get it all or custom use the various programs.

There is an annual plan and a month to month plan.  If you're not an intensive user like me the month to month might be a good way to go, particularly if you want multiple programs at once (Premiere Pro and After Effects).

@ Axilrod: So it is the card that is at fault here in that it should be reformatted before each shoot? Are there specific cards less prone to these type of failures? 

I'm just starting to do videos and I'd like to avoid these problems.  Thanks.

Hey psolberg, thanks for the tip.  I wasn't aware of the video feature on CS6.  It does provide an interesting alternative.  I'm familiar with photoshop and premiere elements and use both extensively so upgrading to either Premiere Pro or CS6 PS shouldn't be too much of an issue.  Now it is just a question of which functionality I want to put my focus on (pun intended) with limited funds. 

I feel a post production party coming on...............
