Landscape / Re: Brisbane City - A Stunning Landscape Timelapse

That was cool. I've been trying to do one of these too, but so far no luck. My timer crapped out after 2 hours then continued after 3 hours again. I think my dogs are involved somehow.  ???

EOS Bodies / Re: 1D X Limitations Fixable?

Would somebody care to explain to me what this "f/8 AF limitation" is, please?

Does it mean autofocus won't work if you set your aperture smaller than f/8?

No, it just means that if your lens largest aperture is smaller than f/5.6 (next step is f/8 typically) it can't autofocus. Focusing is always made at largest aperture, the lens is stopped down to the target aperture when taking the picture.

Lenses don't have as small as f/8 natively, but with teleconverters you get it, 1.4x adds one stop, 2x two. So if your camera cannot do f/8 autofocus you cannot get autofocus with a 2x teleconverter on an f/4 lens or 1.4x on an f/5.6 lens, which can be a limitation for especially wildlife photography. 2x on 500/4 to get 1000/8 with autofocus can be a nice option to have. Or on the low end 400/5.6 => 560/8.

Excellent explanation. Thank you! I know understand and see what the problem could be. My f/2.8 lens would not have an issue, but an f/5.6 lens with a 2x teleconverter would. Not being able to use AF at that point would rather suck.
Thanks, understood and filed.  ;D

Landscape / Snowy pictures

Not sure this qualifies as a 'landscape' per se, but I think it turned out well enough to show here. :) Everyone is invited to post images with snow in them.  ;) Let's make this the photochallenge for the week.

Hdew are great, prices are unbeatable £1425 for a 5d2, £655 for a 24-105. Hong kong imports with duty paid, but you can visit them at their Surrey office and pick up in person before you have paid.

I highly recommend them.

They offered me this option as well, which was the dealmaker for me. I could've had a friend of mine that lives nearby picking the lens up. I just had him swing by and check the place out. Then I decided it was ok to part with my money. :) I will shop there again, I have worked up quite the shopping list.  ;D

Forgive me for such a noobie question, but I haven't seen this really answered anywhere and I just don't get the controversy.

Thanks for your comments. I might re-visit this shot now that I have learnt a bit more about post-processing in ACR and PhotoShop CS5.  ;)

Is it just me or are the sample images in the link provided earlier not very wow-zy?  ;)

Just finished playing around with another take on the 'Henge. What do you think? I kind of like it.

Actually you are not allowed within 30 feet of the stones anymore. At first I was a little disappointed, but people made room for me when I set up my tripod and stuff. :)

Black & White / Re: Your best Architectural & City B&W shots?
« on: September 27, 2011, 03:18:46 AM »
Took this during my recent trip to the UK. Both versions look good but the B&W one has something extra. (IMHO)  ;D

I was playing around with a portrait I took. I knew there was a good image in there. Ran it through Silver Efex 2 and WHAM! there it was.  :D
