EOS Bodies / Re: Exposure compensation
« on: January 18, 2015, 12:41:22 PM »
Hi There, has anyone encountered this problem on a 5Diii and knows of a 'fix', please? When I use AV or TV I cannot apply any exposure compensation using the rear quick control wheel. I can apply Excomp via the Quick control panel but I don't want to be constantly looking at the back of the camera.
This standard feature of applying Excomp works fine on my other 5Ds but not this >:(

What is the position of the Lock Switch? (Just below your quick control wheel).
Good point! Today I coul not change the aperture when in M as I had the lock switch on!

Lenses / Re: EF 100-400mm ii vs. EF 200-400 with 1.4 TC

Although I voted for the 100-400, if money was not the limiting criteria, I would  get both. The 100-400 would be used more.

Don't tell me we are still reading the beeping manuals! Real photographers don't read manuals! We just shoot!  :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P

Thank you for the positive feedback. I have received many unfavorable glances when others realize that the stroller is not inhabited by children. I have others that are interested in hearing the story about it's origin, and seeing some of the images it has allowed me to capture. Others want to take photos for their own possible modifications. Overall it has been well received. One lady that I see often, and is an experienced birder, will tell strangers they are my babies LOL
Well she is right about that!  ;D ;D ;D

The picture 035 is fantastic!

In case are still interested in comments.
The instant I looked at it, the song Kingston Town by UB40, popped into my head...
But now, I'm humming, Kiss The Rain by Billie Myers.

Personally, I never add things to an image. I think it is dishonest.

It is a great image, I really like it. It is full of soul, imo...
Thank you. I thought so too as I shot it. However, I thought it needed a bit more punch.

Maybe composite 2 photos so you can get the stars in the night sky using leaves and moon as masks?
Brilliant! Thanks.
