1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx

Again, nothing like what you guys are posting, but I'm just enjoying the AF performance of the 1DX/70-200 f/2.8L II IS performance.  Auto ISO with CWA on the 1DX nailed the exposure pretty close too.  This is a Tiffin pole vaulter at the GLIAC Outdoor T&F Championships on Thursday.  1DX, 70-200 f/2.8L II IS at 95mm, 1/5000s, f/3.2, ISO 100.
Lovely picture.
Question: did his right arm go clockwise or counterclockwise?

Thanks.  It was always below his face, but upon pushoff, it went counterclockwise up and around.
It was not about the face. If he did not go counter clockwise the pole might have fallen on the bar. It seems inclined towards the bar...

What you should look for in the video software is how it uses your video card and RAM etc. For example, Sony Vegas Pro makes very good use of CUDA and the Video card etc which makes it much faster. Of course this also depends on your computer system etc.

Let us know how it goes.
Sure I will.

No marination, no rest, no heat - just catch and dunk! So you are another bird whisperer! Just how many takes did you need to do? ;)

Lovely pics.

Thanks rpt.

I was in single shot mode and took 39 photos. Some were very badly composed and some were out of focus or terribly overexposed. About 10 of the 39 were OK enough that I PP them in DPP. That's all I use since I don't know how to use any other program ( I want to learn LR and PS one day).

When I can get him to land on my hand (like I've seen several people on CR do), then I will be a true bird whisperer ;D
You should try LR. After using it for some time I now find the DPP interface limiting. There is a beta of LR5 on. You can try that. Also there are a number of videos that can get you started.

Lovely!

Quick question for anyone:

How long did the firmware upgrade take?

thx

Updated just now ... took 4 mins 10 seconds using the CF card. SD may be slower.
Bah! These accountants! Expecting light to travel at a constant velocity!

I couldn't help it, neither could you ;D ;D ;D

Cheers ... J.R.
Ha Ha Ha! Obviously you were an engineer in all of your previous births. All photographers (who capture particles traveling at a constant velocity) are...

One more in the same vein.  10 sec. exposure (obviously!) and second curtain sync.


Nicely executed.  Photography done right
Seriously nice! Fantastic!

This is our girl, Jazz, who turns 10 years old in July.  She is retired from hunting, the dog show circuit and from being a 'mom'.  She is now a St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog.



She is usually quite happy to share a bed with our 10 year old cat, Fannie, who can often be seen grooming Jazz.







 :)
Lovely! There are "dog" people and there are "cat" people. I think our family is "dog and cat" people... Personally I wish I were as smart as any of those two species. Well, both species understand a number of the words (and some phrases) we speak. I - nevermind! I do not speak anything but human speak... :(

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.

Nice to see this picture here...!
Mr. photographer, thanks to you.

I use Sony Vegas Pro. I like it, and find it easy to use. The con is that it is quite expensive though they do have cheaper - and excellent quality - options such as the Studio etc.

I do not think it really matters what one shoots. A video is a video, what is in it really makes no difference.
Thanks! I was giving up on this thread wondering if most video shooters used Mac... I did look up Sony Vegas the other day. May be I will take a free download and try it out to compare it with my current VideoPad editor.

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:
« on: May 05, 2013, 01:44:01 AM »
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!
