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  :)

Pauline was such a relaxed and laid back cat...

I agree! This one is priceless!

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

Excellent shots! I like them all.

Just installed on 1.2.3.  So far works perfectly.  Little complaints from me other than the slow start up time after sleep.

Messin around with Dual ISO now.

Dang, was hoping that would be fixed.

Can you confirm that the slow wake times go away after you remove ML?


The delay appears to be from loading ML and reading the saved settings.  Not waiting find its mind in memory.  If i decide to uninstall ill let you know.  Liking it so much that its likely to stay forma while.  ;)

There is a Dual ISO plugin for LR now! I am excited! This weekend is going to be Dual ISO weekend!
The link to the plugin is:

Ive been watching that.  Wonder if there is any speed improvement over cr2hdr?

Never tried cr2hdr before. But then my philosophy is that "Procrastination wins. Always!". Just look at what the ML team has given me - er - us...  ;)
They work hard and I work harder at procrastination... :P

Can someone post a raw samples of dual ISO on and off?
I am curious to see if it is worth it?

Thanks
That is my next project... Probably this weekend.

It is fine on my 8GB SD card and I am pretty sure that it will work up to a 32GB SD card.
Good. So I'll try again today. I was on the 1.2.1 version of the firmware and I upgraded to 1.2.3 from this same 64 GB card. Anyway.

RPT, Are you loading ML for still shooting or are you into video? I just shoot stills exclusively, am interested in some of the ML capabilities that I have read about...but to be honest I have been afraid  :-[ to upload it on my camera as I am not a tech-savy geek...(and a 5 D III represents a dear expenditure to me)just a very serious photographer.  Hope this works for you and would love to hear how you feel about the experience if/when you get the upload to happen Mr. Big-Card! LOL!  Best of LUCK!
Not to worry. I installed it via a 4GB card and it installed and uninstalled perfectly. A1ex mentioned that it now installs via a 64GB card too if the .FIR file is named in the 8.3 file name format. Will try that too.

I mostly shoot still but am interested in the raw video capability too. Looking forward to intervelometer, dual ISO and focus peaking among other things...

Could this be the problem for 64GB card?

"- EosCard is now optional (might be required for 64GB cards or larger; didn't try)"

BTW, am I right to presume after ML installation, my previous setting will remain? (AF microadjustment, C1-C3 settings, etc)
Thanks. A1lex also asked me to try with a smaller card. I'll try that...

Hi! So my 5D3 (with firmware version 1.2.3) and ML dont seem to want to work together.

Very stange, seems correct and the Canon update should find the .fir ... please post this in the ML forum (see my link in the 1st post) as this is where you'll get support for this issue.
I did. Is there something  I need to do for the 64GB card I used?
