EOS Bodies / Re: Focus problems with the Canon 7DII?
« on: December 07, 2014, 10:33:27 AM »
Wow if he never AFMA'd the cameras he was testing I guess that pretty much invalidates the tests.

Invalid tests?  But...but...he does a lot of testing for his YouTube channel.  If that doesn't make him an expert, what does??   :o
I guess you could hold it as a P&S and shoot in live view mode...  :P

Lenses / Re: 300 or 500I or 500II or 7D2... HELP!
« on: December 06, 2014, 02:24:40 PM »
If anyone can offer some advice, it'd be much appreciated.

Don't buy anything, shoot with what you have - it doesn't look to shabby :-p. If you'd be in real need of one of the gear items, you'd know.

If it's just gas, probably get the 500L2 as you're focal length limited with your current full frame gear. With the kind of image quality you're carrying, I imagine you wouldn't be happy going back to a crop sensor.

So here is our cat Leo. Taken with the 7D II and 18-135 @135. The first one is 1/50, f5.6, 400 ISO with the popup flash. The second one is 1/200, f7.1, 400 ISO and flash. I think it came out well :)

Software & Accessories / Re: Lightroom 5.7 - Is it working for you?

I needed the upgrade for the 7DMkII raw files.   It works just as well as it did under 5.6.
Exactly!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: buying suggestion: a 5D3 or 1Dx?
« on: December 02, 2014, 10:04:58 AM »
5D3 with MagicLantern.

The 5D3 has a silent shooting mode you can use for weddings and other functions where you don't want to sound like a gun...

EOS Bodies / Re: 7D II owners, did you need to AFMA your camera?
« on: December 01, 2014, 07:41:52 PM »
So I got the 18-135 done. It was -1 and 1. The 100-400L was 1 and 1. And the same for the 100-400L with the 1.4x.

Still need to do the other lenses.

In other words your camera / lens combinations were spot on !
Yup. So far. I have another five more combinations to do... But knowing the AFMA on the 5D3, I am guessing it will be similar. We'll see.

EOS Bodies / Re: CR2s not showing up as thumbnails on my Win 8.1 laptop

Thanks people. I remember, even for the 5D3 it took a while before that happened. I guess I have no option but to wait.

EOS Bodies / CR2s not showing up as thumbnails on my Win 8.1 laptop
« on: November 30, 2014, 02:27:54 AM »
Hi!

So I got the 7D2 and thought that the raw file being CR2, would show up because my CR2 from the 5D3 shows the thumbnail - and double-clicking the 5D3 file displays it.

Apparently the software gods at Canon thought otherwise...

Trust me, I Googled and downloaded three installers from Microsoft that swore that they would solve my problem. But they did not so I turn to you folks. What magic did you do to solve this issue.

Thanks in advance.

Lovely!

But where are your cats or bears or elephants?

 :)

Hi RPT, yes, I miss them as well, but being happily married and staying that way requires extreme sacrifice from time to time, so, it's temples, art sites, slow moving rivers, Gucci & Herme shops with the occasional view of Chanel, I wish it was even the English Chanel, sadly not.
:)

I know what you are talking about.

Av mode, wide open, spot metering, +1 EC.  I take two shots at even values from |12-20|, three shots every value from -10 to +10.

You could also shoot by 5's, analyze, then shoot by 1's for a set of values around the first result.
Cool! Thanks. So I do have work for the weekend.
