bchernicoff, dirtcastle, have you tried low level format of the card after downloading? I thought there was a thread either on CR or ML forums about this... If that works maybe you need to add that to your workflow...

Welcome to CR Spiffyinferno. I like your fire.

+1...very nice fire photo :)
Yup! All three are excellent pictures. I love the clouds in the third one. Welcome to CR!

5d3 and mountain ....
:) lovely form of the stones. Looks like it is my "I like it better in B&W" day. :)

I took the liberty of converting it to B&W and posting it here, Hope you don't mind.

1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx
« on: May 25, 2013, 01:18:41 AM »
Posting this as an example of 1dx output as the light was really really low.
For those who are interested, these 'monks' bathe in Ganges every twelve years in a huge affair called Kumbh mela.
Sanj, Lovely picture. What were the settings? There is no EXIF to refer to. BTW, I converted it to B&W and it was so striking. The blue distracts me in the colour version. In the B&W, you go straight to the sadhu's face. And that after simply converting to B&W - no fancy profile stuff...

Lovely picture. I am taking the liberty of uploading that B&W conversion. I hope you do not mind.

Here's some footage I edited together from last weekend in Central Oregon:

https://vimeo.com/66866250

All but the last three shots are with the Magic Lantern firmware....it's a bit tedious in post but WORTH IT!

Great video! Your intro reminded me of some of the other amazing bucolic footage I've seen from other ML RAW early adopters.

I was able to get RAW working on my 5D3. Tomorrow I'll shoot some footage and string it together. But alas, I don't think it will include misty mountains and green pastures. ;-) Lol... It will probably be more like bumper-to-bumper traffic, construction work, and people yelling at each other. Ah... city life.
So you guys went back to 1.1.3 or never upgraded to 1.2.1? I shall be watching this channel for your videos and comments :)

I never upgraded because I heard it breaks Magic Lantern.  I had never used Magic Lantern prior to the RAW video thing, I'm enjoying all the other, many features as well!

I've heard it's pretty easy to downgrade back to 1.1.3 though!
Yes, I know. However, my f8 focus will go away and my flash focus will be even lazier than me (or should have I said "lazier than I").

I'll wait on the sidelines for now - I have the 1.1.3 saved and so I could just make the jump...

Or else I shall watch the videos you people put up and drool...

Whatever...

Have fun! :)

Ahh, I see, I don't have a lens setups fancy enough that I need f/8 focus.

I have no doubt this will *eventually* work with 1.2.1 though, the rate at which these guys are fixing bugs is pretty impressive.  Most of my complaints about the raw2dng OSX GUI software have been fixed within days!
Actually I do not have fancy glass. If I did, I would not need the f8 focus. I have the 100-400 which is a f5.6 at the long end and when I add the 1.4x, it becomes a f8 560mm. If I had the fancy 500mm or 600mm f4 like some folks do, I would probably not upgrade... So I'll wait... And look forward to videos put up by you folks :)

Just a quick example.  I totally overexposed this shot, because it was so damn dark down there and midcourt was so damn bright.  Much easier and cleaner to bring down in post vs. underexposing and lifting:

can you show the unedited shot for reference
also i'm guessing you shot with the 1Dx which will be even better than the 5dmk3

Well, shoot yeah, that's right I did.  I will grab the RAW file anyways, if I've got it, let me look.
That would be great. BTW, how much do you push to the right in your indoor sports shots?

With a 1Dx, on CWA, my meter reading typically reads anywhere from +1/3 to +1 EV.  I keep it in that window, or try to.  I've gone up as high as +1 2/3 and it still came out fine in post-processing, but was pretty bright.  With older cams, I kept changing the ISO to keep it around 2/3, but with the 1Dx this isn't necessary if you have time to post-process because the RAW files are just so nice.
Thanks! I was guessing +1 EV. Was not sure about that. While shooting film on my AE1 I was "told" that EC needed to be -1/3 and that had to be compensated by setting the ISO appropriately - well I did, and magically most prints came out fine.

Little did I comprehend that "print" needs a whole second level of "adjustment"...

Hopefully tomorrow or the day after I will do a non-Einsteinian experiment...

Don't even attempt to ask...

OK, so you got me. I see sky, clouds, greenery, rocks, and water. So where exactly did Victoria fall?

Botswana 2012, Mombo Camp Okavango Delta.

5DMK III 400f/2.8 L IS V2, Shot @ f/8.0 & 1/125th ISO100

So crisp. Superb B&W shot!  ;)
B&W or not - he always nails it. No need to complement him. He just does it. I need to learn more...
:)

There are so many great photographers on this forum who share their knowledge and technique. Thank you people.

6D Sample Images / Re: Anything shot with a 6D
« on: May 24, 2013, 12:15:06 PM »
Jack, your style of photography is very different than mine (BIF is a very small part of what I do.  Even using telephoto isn't a big part), but for me, I would have to see a significant upgrade in IQ for me to consider adding a crop body to my kit.  I just didn't find that I used my crop (my last was a 60D) after I switched to FF.  The latitude for post work in FF images (particularly from the 6D) is just so much better.

Anyway, here is an image from the 6D in the opposite direction - this is a handheld ant macro with the 100L Macro IS lens:

Great picture! You broke the rule of thirds and yet I like it. So what did you do? I am guessing it is the orange and black contrast that gets my attention.

I'm not familiar with ETTR...what is that?

Expose to the right...

sorry my psychic powers are malfunctioning at the moment you are going to have to fill in a fair bit mor info here if you want a serious answer from anyone since without my psychic powers I have no way of know WTF you already have, how much money you have to spend or what it is you want to do with your gear

failing that buy 4 1Dx bosies and 2 of each every Canon L series lens 12 Ex600RT flashes

oh better get a couple of 5Dmk3 for backups and so you can do continuous RAW video with Magic lantern

that should about cover it :P

Other than this being exceptionally good advise, it's also what I miss after living overseas for 30 years, the Aussie sense of what most of us call, Humour, it doesn't quire translate in the rest of the world, but I still love it, I'm still laughing as I write this.
I agree although I'm not Aussie.

Also, very sound advice as always from WW  :P
I like that kind of humour too. Also not an Aussie. Although Radio Australia was my favourite radio station in the 70s - too bad I can't catch it any more. May be I should build a hobby kit radio with 13 and 16 meter band and check. Do they transmit on short wave any more?
