This has to be Jrista's shortest post.

HAH! Your probably right. :P
Good Lord Jrista! not feeling well? ;)

Can you guys access it? I get a page saying that the site is down and their "Gurus" are working on it. :(

I sometimes use ISO 50 when I want to use a larger aperture and I can't increase the shutter speed due to flash synch limits.  Seems to work fine, I don't notice any loss in quality.
They are talking about the higher end - 51k and 102k ISO...

Is the 1.2.3 version as advanced and bug-free as the version for prior firmware? I.E. is it time to upgrade to 1.2.3 and use the new ML firmware or is it still better to stick to the older Canon firmware and the ML paired to that.

I don't own a 6d, but as far as I see it currently the 1.1 fw is more tested as the 1.2 one isn't even officially "released" but still in a branch in the source code: https://bitbucket.org/hudson/magic-lantern/commits/branch/5D3-123

Once 1.2 is in the main repo imho there's no reason not to use it, as I already wrote the main dev alex has a 5d3 so it's the most stable port of all.
I have ML permanently on my 5D3 on the SD card. I am working with dual ISO. No crashes so far. Also with the cr2hdr plugin for LR, getting a dual ISO image in the workflow is easy.

Don't really like this one, because something is missing on the lake, but posted anyway. I made 20 shots (without any filter) with the longest exposure as possible and then put them into PS and adjusted opacity of each layer.

Nice - if you think something missing from the lake then did you try to crop out the bottom 1/3 of the image - just to see if it makes the image more interesting?

I was thinking the same thing yesterday but I was too lazy to comment.

So my Hawks are back for water in the dishes in my garden. Sorry guys if you find the pictures repetitive, these birds call for me to snap pictures  ;)

Not my fault...

Notice the beak has motion blur. It was calling it's parent.

Also notice the translucent eyelid has covered a quarter of the eye. So even when the eye is completely covered, it can "see"...

cool shot rpt!
Thanks.

Lovely shots here!

+1 for putting distance between the subject and the background. Also helps if the background has smaller elements like leaves (and not cars...).

One morning last summer I was taking some sunrise photos of the Moulton Barn when a herd of Bison charged down the road.  Not far from where I was standing they split.  Most to the right but a few left behind the old barn.  Before they could reach the barn there was a fenced in area blocking them and after some pacing back and forth, this guy went for it.  Have to admit that I was worried for a bit when they were charging as I was out in the open.  Their must have been 30 or so, but it turned out to be a good photo op.
All of this happened in a hurry and I'm glad that my other camera was set and ready close by in my vehicle.  My short time experience has taught me that you never know with wildlife!

Jumping fence pic:

A very rare photo op ... well done for quick thinking and being prepared ... I can image one being worried when 30 or so massive Bison are charging close by, I mean if they can suddenly  leap off that fence what stops them from suddenly changing direction and charging at you, like you said "never know with wildlife" ... I'd probably sh!t myself first before thinking of the photo opportunity.
+1!

Great picture.

Andy, I think #1, #2 and #3 were good. I did not get #4 - forgive my ignorance of track and field  :)

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

Jack is sort of right, in my own hopeless experience the 200f/2 leads to the 300f/2.8 leads to the 500f/4 or 600f/4 leads to the 200-400f/4, you get the picture. I'm now considering seriously the Phase One IQ250, only thing holding me back is I know as soon as I buy it Canon will release a 1Dxs with 45MP sensor that shoots @ 4fps, then I'de shoot myself.
Edward, you forgot the 400 f2.8L IS II in between the 300 and the 500 ...  :P
Looks like Dr. Eldar is medicating the wound by rubbing salt into it  :P
