EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: what to do

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?

I actually met someone like that  He currently has 2 1DX, 2 1D4, 1D3, 5D3, 5D2 and every L glass and Canon accessory.  He put down photojournalists because some of their work is in black and white and he never shoot jpeg because it's for the lesser shooters.  I watched him at an event and he spent more time fiddling with his gear than shooting.  He was shooting with a ring flash at a sporting event.  He told me he is a first adopted of everything Canon releases and would never sell any old body because their actuations are so low.
So that is one way of getting low actuations on a body. Keep fiddling and don't shoot!  ;)

What's really amazing to me at least, is how well you can pull up shadows in post, and then how well the files sharpen, in just a matter of 60 seconds post-processing.  This was shot during the middle of the day, maybe around 3pm, and the runner was heavily shadowed.  But with the 1Dx RAW files in post, not really too big of a problem for web viewing.  Here is a 3-shot hurdler sequence from Malone:

I really like the 3rd one. Great shot.
Yup! You can see in his eyes he is already eyeing the next goal 10 mt away. Excellent capture! The others are great too.

They have fixed the Mac GUI version of raw2dng, no more 2GB recording limit!  That was very fast and very un-Canon!

That's because it's not Canon, it's the MagicLantern team  :o

Exactly!  A rag-tag band of part-time, just-for-fun programmers can fix their software in a couple of days...meanwhile Canon announces a firmware update and then takes over 6 months to actually roll it out... :o
ML folks "code because they feel". That is a powerful place to be in. Structure imposes *. I am certain Canon has great scientist, engineers, architects, programmers etc? If not, can you imagine that the ML folks would be able to get stuff working in this timeframe?

I do not think he is impressed. Better get a release signed soon. I do not like that look.

My 5D3 + 24-105 took a spill from the top of my tripod - 3 feet drop into mud and rocks on a hill and survived! I think I was lucky it did not fall directly on the rock there :)

I continued to shoot after blowing the dust off the uv filter.

Has anyone used the latest ML release (alpha 3 or nightly build) with the 1.2.1 firmware? Also how do I get the nightly build? Do I need to build it?

Thanks in advance.

I don't have it up in front of me, but I've been following in the forums....

1. THey are currently only working on the older firmware, I think it was 1.1.3?  The threads are like 50 deep, but in those they have links to get the older firmware so you can 'downgrade' to the version that works with current builds.

2. There are no 'guides' with everything you need to know about running the nightlies so you can play with the RAW video. YOu basically have to read through the long forum threads and take notes. ON some of those threads I saw links to outside sites where people have tried to put it all together into one guide, but if you're not familiar with a bit of coding, or more intricate computing methods, you might just want to wait till they have a more stable candidate.

That being said, the info is on a couple of ML forum threads.....I"m currently just watching the threads from the sidelines for now, but I may jump in at some point and try nightlies....

HTH,

cayenne

Yea, I'd recommend waiting until there's at least a pre-built alpha/beta that's officially released. A lot easier to install and use. Also it'll be a lot more stable and less experimental. But, if you do want to participate, please do so and help them out with any bug reports or suggestions!

The latest build are working remarkably well now though.
The only real bug is recording a file while card space runs out and I expect tht will be fixed in one day maybe two.
See! More drool! ;)

It is my only body - can't take a chance to brick it. Besides the damn thing cost me full price when I bought it...

LetTheRightLensIn, cayenne, Drizzt321, thanks. Yes that has been what I have been thinking too. Unfortunately I "want" the f8 focus and the faster AF for flash so I don't want to downgrade to 1.1.3...

I guess I will sit on the sidelines for an alpha on 1.2.1 and look at the game being played and drool...
 :)

Same trip. June 2006. These are at Lytham. Stayed at the Clifton Arms smack opposite the Lytham green. Lovely place. Went to BAE to work...

In Lytham town

So many lake district pictures! So here are a couple form me :)
Taken with the 300D and the 18-55 kit lens. Straight out of the camera. That time I shot JPGs :) Sorry no RAWs.





Yes, and it was a perfect week! June 2006.
