I'm mostly interested in the HUD aspect. What kind of info does it display and how easy is it to see?


I've said for a while, as a motorbike rider, that the next big innovation will be HUD for speedometer, gear position info etc.

This would be very interesting for cyclists too, would be great to see a map with directions on your favourite pair of Oakleys. And to be able to switch between that and a rear view shot to see what is coming up from behind (more cyclists this, than motorbike of course).
Great ideas! Hopefully Google is crawling this great idea and reporting it back to Big Brother ;)

HDR - High Dynamic Range / Re: Post your HDR images:

Okay, so here's one.  I'm trying to keep it a little more realistic.  I may try one a bit more radical as well, just for giggles...
Does not look like "HDR". Looks good! So how many shots, what EC? What time was it when you took the picture?

Shutterwideshut, Chuck, lovely pictures!

Bornshooter, there seems to be a problem with your AF. The loch is completely out of focus. ;)
Damn RPT looks like it's out quite a bit lol

I think Bornshooter was using that new AF setting on the 5DIII:

Assisted Specified Spot AF....
I wonder if I have that setting on my 5D3? Or is it only for Scotland? I don't mind traveling there. The whiskey (I should correct the spelling or paulwalnut will get on my case again! [pun purely by accident]) whisky is great there!

If canon expand or improve the m series I wonder what they will call the new models?

Didn't Leica get a bit defensive when Olympus launched the OM-1 under its original name of m-1?

So will it be the canon m1 m2 m3 etc?
Or the mA mB mC?

Or maybe even names?  The m biaritz?  The m mayfair?  The m club?

Just a bit of fun, but thoughts please....
I like the motorway route better ;)

Great images emi...REALLY beautiful! ...but those aren't old guys...they are in their 30's!   ;)
That is what eml is saying. 30's is old! Look at me! 18 till I die! Been at 18 for 39 years! ;)

I realized I had not put up a picture of mine. This is one that sanj took of me. We met up last year when he came down to Pune to shoot. Well, this is me without my camera :)


Nice portrait rpt !
Thanks :)

I was just the model! The compliment goes to Sanj.

Decided to work on my Portrait skills.

5DMK III 85 f/1.2, Shot @ f/4.5 & 1/160th ISO320
Love it, from where?

Went out yesterday with a Local Photographer to a Village in the Mountains behind Jakarta, been living here & Singapore for 26 years never bothered, wrong decision.

5DMK III 85f/1.2, Shot @ f/4 & 1/160th ISO160
Excellent shots eml! The lighting is perfect. So how much was being wagered on the cockfight? :)

Thanks RPT, I don't think they survived to spend their winnings, there were more cigarettes smoked in the 3 hours than I've seen in my entire Life, these Old Fellas live dangerously, no idea how they got to be Old Fellas.
May be it is the clean mountain air... Or a really good filter in the windpipe :)

Hi

I am considering buying Focal for my 5DM3 and soon (I hope) new 1Dx.  Lens range from 14mm through 500MM IS original version, plus zoom, ....

As I look at the difference between Plus and Pro I notice that Pro adds bells and whistles (save charts, watch analysis as it progresses), plus some unspecified tools "more control over the camera setup, ... and the addition of several other tests: Aperture Sharpness, AF Consistency, Dust Analysis and the MultiPoint Focus Test."

Does these add with MicroFocus adjustments or more diagnostics about the lens.  Since I have had the lens for a while, I can not exchange them for better copies at the local camera store.  Do the additional tests help or are they simply expensive bells and whistles.

Thanks
I asked the same question many months back and ended up buying the pro. The charting helps me understand how the lens is doing at various settings. I have not yet used some of the other features. If I can locate the thread I will repost. I am sure Mt Spokane and neuro will chime in. Their comments were helpful. I think briansquibb commented too.

Quick question for anyone:

How long did the firmware upgrade take?

thx
Not long. May be about 10 minutes. Why do you ask? I did not note the time.

Well it was on APS-C so its more like 80mm. You could also sit next to the tiger and let ur friends take photos of that for like 3 us dollars. I didnt want to do that cuz cats are my gods so it felt really wrong to me.  but yeah im wondering also what they gonna do if the tiger gets angry? perhaps it was declawed :(
Don't forget a smack from the paw could break your neck if it wanted to! Declawed means very little really...

The picture looks good. However, I wonder how strong that brass thingie is...
