No I meant including it in a pic of yours as you had done before...

I know what you meant...I was busting your chops! :-*
:) So when is the next shoot? All that heavy machinery and factories reminds me of the steel plant that I grew up in.

The chimneys in the pic on the right are the SMS (Steel Melting Shop) chimneys. 100m tall.

Video & Movie / Re: 800 pictures in 4:02 minutes

Thank you for you positive comment rpt.
I shoot only raw, so... 12fps is quite enough, anything more than that will look more like video, and less like photo slide show.  ;)
Thanks for sharing.
You are making me want a 1DX :)
The 5D3 can only shoot so many raw frames at 6 fps :(
Of course I could cheat - shoot video at 24 fps convert to JPEG and drop every second frame and rebuild the video. That way even the music can be synced. ;)
Nah! Will not be even in the same solar system as your video :)

Likely considerably.  You also have to consider that it's possible the 2XIII may move your focus out of AFMA adjustment range.  I had that issue in a 1DX recently.  -20 was not enough.   Will it be the same on my 5DIII?  We'll see in May!  The capability is just that.  No one promised ideal capability.

AF at f8. YES! So in May I can have effective 140-560mm! :)
Wonder how much it will slow down the AF.
I guess I'll find out in two weeks :)
Btw, I have the 1.4xIII not the 2xIII... Hence the 100-400 goes to 140-560...
And if it goes beyond -20 (or +20) the camera, 100-400 and the 1.4xIII will need to go to canon for calibration. I hope not!

Excellent! So what was the fps you shot at? Did you shoot 14 fps JPEG?

1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx

Thanks guys :-) she is a lovely model and had a great MUA too :)
It is a lovely shot. Have you tried to convert it to B&W? The eyes are captivating when you do.
Just checked it out in black and white as i love b&w its nice but this ones colour for me :)
May be try leaving the colour of the eyes in and get the rest B&W. The eyebrows and eyes are where you want people to focus - right?
Or may be the lip colour... Having shot B&W for a loooooong time I somehow have got hard wired for B&W. The nearest colour processing was 1000 km away in 1967! And it cost an arm and a leg compared to B&W contact print...

Lenses / Re: First Trip to the UK should i take a 70-200mm
« on: April 18, 2013, 04:21:00 AM »
I did a number of trips with my 300D and 18-55. The only shot that I missed was that of a moorhen in Wrea Green (Lancs). I tried to sneak up to it but it did not work.

So if you need to travel light you can leave it behind. These days with my 5D3, I carry my 24-105 and the 100-400. That way I don't miss anything.

Thanks for the input. I really liked the picture of the pelican and the water. If only I could afford the beast... Well, may be one day... One can dream...

On the High ISO, my experience was that on the 5DMK III 1600 ISO was about where I felt Maximum IQ/Grain was achieved, anything Higher and the Grain was starting to impact too much on IQ.

With the 1Dx I found I could push to ISO 5000 to achieve a similar result, at night the brighter viewfinder on the 1Dx was a big advantage.

But most of my 70-200f/2.8 II work was done on the 5DMK iII, these two seem made for each other.

White Rhino: 5DMK III 70-200f/2.8 II, Shot @ f/4 & 1/5000th ISO250

Bad Boy: 5DMK III 70-200f/2.8, Shot @ f/8 & 1/200th ISO1600 + 600EX RT (Set at -3 & 200mm)
I love your rhino shot! B&W makes all the difference from my perspective. No confusion. All one sees is the rhino in this pic (and the baby  :) ) . If it were in colour there would be brown, green, blue and some white and the eye would wander...

Having said that, I am a fan of all of your shots. They are great!

Canon General / Re: Why do you do Photography?

Because if I draw a rock and a tree, I have to label them so you can tell which one is the tree.
Same here. In the seventh grade I drew a bird and people thought it was a frog! This way if they think a bird is a frog it is their eyesight that is in question :)

I love tack sharp, so my fav is the large eye.

I love that shot too.
