Dear Canon make it 1 TB Free for ALL :)

Dear Canon,

Please don't.

The running costs would have to be met by loading prices on camera equipment. I'm sort of fine with that happening for iPhones etc., because those things have a limited life anyway and it's an ongoing thing to budget for. But I keep my camera equipment for decades.

BTW, it's Sunday evening on a holiday weekend here in Australia, and the Australia and NZ site is "currently undergoing testing and maintenance" by gurus. (For those who don't know, a "guru" is an expert on Unix and open source software. Generally they come with beards.)
Same here and I am logging on from India. So may be their Geography is not too good - apart from other things... ;)

A hawk family lives around my house and he often comes to the trees in and around the garden. Yesterday he was  eating a garden lizard and screaming at the top of his lungs. I guess he thought that it was tasty! Take a look. Personally, I'd pass ;)

Shot with 5D3 firmware 1.2.3 with Magic Lantern http://www.magiclantern.fm/. I have been shooting with Dual ISO turned on and it gives me good results! Take a look at the thread http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7139.0 that describes the feature, and the thread http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7402.0 where you can see pictures taken with dual ISO.

The first one was shot with a 100-200L @200mm, ISO 100/1600, F/8, 1/250
The second one was shot with a 100-400L @400mm with a 1.4x so @560mm, ISO 400/6400, F/8, 1/200
I left the exif on so you can see but imgur.com kills it :(.

I was shooting against the light. The sun is a little to the left of the bird.

I shoot I'm M mode with auto ISO. I am usually at the longest end of my lenses when not shooting humans :) so fixing the shutter speed is not an issue. I think my shots usually come out ok.

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?

Tc :)

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.
