As you can see he is always away taking pictures - in different countries too...Smile and wave boys! Smile and wave.
Madagascar, Very Funny, I have Teenage Boys so this Line I recognise, appropriate for Crap Kings Shot.
Didn't you let it slip you were in your 60s.
I am an atheist myself. Spiritual though. I practise scotch and vodka - separately - unless it is a long islandbut i'm an atheist....
what should i do?
Keep up the good and level headed work.
Hope your camera feels better soon. That question was for distant.star - not you bseitz234.Score a couple for the fish:.
So, as you say....
Score one for the fish.
Question: Do you eat fish?
my brand new (to me) lens
I would eat more fish if I could outsmart them. Maybe I"ll just go buy a big piece of swordfish and grill it up, to get even. ;-)
So, as you say....
Score one for the fish.
confession time.I still cant see anything in them either. They look a lot like very bad banding noise to me...
When magic eye images were all the rage I would just lie through my teeth.
'Oh yeah, a dolphin' 'thats really cool, a yacht?'
And the bearer would walk away confused.
Never saw a damn thing.
In a shot that the camera got to choose the metering, I noticed a pattern in the noise on the bottom edge: a cross. I can only presume to mean that this camera or sensor has been blessed!or crucified...
Yes. I love the pastel shades of the first one.Big Bend National Park
Really love the first one! Awesome work.
Interesting! It is almost as though they are on a conning tower of a sub...

That's interesting Info RPT, thanks, I need to look more at this, Loads of reports indicating amazing High ISO performance, I see better, but I don't see amazing, and I often shoot with a friend that uses a Nikon D3x and I can generally shoot 2 stops above him, no more though, and the his Camera is getting long in the tooth.Ha ha ha!
All in all though, the 1Dx is about as good a Camera as I've had to date, it can only get better.
As an aside the same friend mentioned above has tried the D4 alongside my 1Dx and gave up, he's a dedicated Nikon shooter but was just not happy with the D4, the D800 he gave up on the moment he realised it shot 4fps. So he sticks to the D3s & D3x, I hope the chap with the Cambodian Temple name doesn't read this, I'll be in trouble, again.
I have been struggling with noise too. I have noticed when the light is low and the ISO kicks up above 1600 noise seems to kick in. Now on one of the threads there was a discussion where Neuro pointed out that the base ISO for the 5DIII (not sure about the 1DX) was 80 and so an ISO of 160 seemed to be giving better results than 125. So the values of 160, 320, 640 seemed to be the ones to choose. Also on yet another thread Neuro and many others talked about how the the signal for ISO values that were 1/3rd above were given additional "gain" and the ones that were 1/3rd below were "cut" so the ones 1/3rd above would have a bit more noise.Quote from: rptOk, that makes sense. Yet another use of a beanbag. I asked because you shot 1/400th @560mm...
You have a number of stories. All of them interesting. You should compile them in a book... Good thing you got your hard case back...
Hi RPT, I dont Hand Hold that much, not so much because of the weight, more because I often try to shoot as Low ISO as I can get away with, so that affects the Shutter speed when I'm concentrating mostly on shooting f/4 & f/5.6.
Unlike many that I've read about, I don't find the 1Dx (or the 5DMKIII) take great Images re Noise, anything above around ISO1250 to ISO1600, but I do find the 1Dx in particular takes excellent Images re Noise, at around 800 to 1250, so most of shots are at those ISO ranges, +/- ISO800.
Of course both Cameras can be pushed way above these ISO's, but the Noise becomes significant and I tend to not like a large amount of noise in my Images.
I think this one has had too much whisky (Paul13walnut look my spellings have improved )Edward, you need to get your copyright size back up! It needs to do justice to the pictures you take...Red Billed Ox Pecker.
Must be the most annoying little Crappers in the bird Kingdom, unless you have Ticks of Course.
1Dx 200-400f/4, Shot @ 533mm f/5.6 & 1/320th ISO200
That's a very cool shot I like it Nicely done Edward
Thanks Click, and while some were Pecking the Crap out of his Head, these were having a Party on his Back, I think Buffalos probably hate Ox Peckers.
1Dx 200-400f/4, Shot @ 490mm f/5.6 & 1/800th ISO200
Well then, just my opinion...
Thanks RPT, always a quandary, Make the Copy right large enough to show, or small enough not to detract from the Image, I do this for Fun so less of an issue I guess, but appreciate the sentiment, really.
Ran into about 10 different Eagle Owls on the trip, previous few trips none, go figure, even seen one with only one Eye.
