Portrait / Re: Fashion Girl picture test with Dynalite Ringflash 3200w

Oooooo.  :o  Fancy...

How's the color compare to the AB-Ring flash?

Does color matter?  This is analogous to comparing a 7D to a 1Dx

i.e. Dynalite around $2K or more and the AB at $400

Color matters. Generally all analog studio strobes color shift @ different power levels. ABs are terrible offenders and simply asked how a 2K dynalite performs.

You could just shoot a 1/160. My novatron's were complaining and My El cheapo cowboy triggers we're slow. :\

The 70-200II is the best 70-200mm available from canon, and its fantastic. Too heavy for my tastes, but you may want to sell the 70-200F4L for the smaller 135L prime to complement the new big white shark.

If you shoot action all the time, parachute off airplanes, cover wars, or work in bad weather, yes get a 1DX.

Downsizing the 5D3 file to 18mp produces very similar noise performance to the 1Dx. I'd say the 1Dx would have a 1/2 stop advantage at that size. Is it much? You decide.

Get some new primes. I see you don't have many, but Invest in new glass to change it up a bit.

I'd just buy a sigma 35mm. It's got everything going for it and it's not too expensive either.

Lighting / Re: Trouble finding focus

Try Pre-focusing and holding until the correct composition comes into the frame.

Sometime the very best AF systems just aren't smart enough to stick the focus where its needed. It's worked for me quite well in other areas of photography and could see it working here.

If you own the 70-200II already, just add the Mark III 2x tele converter.

If not, the 100-400L is canon's best offering at the moment for decent birding.

When your tripod holding a 5D3 + 200 F/2 L falls head first onto some rocks, and its a CPS rental. <:O

Using this camera more and more is becoming second nature. While the DR is better with the nikons at the moment, I just got my mind blown again with this file processed from my MK3.
Wow! Could you detail what you did? It looks fantastic.

Heres the basic processing. I also did + Adj. Brushes + Tone curves.

« on: March 11, 2013, 10:49:36 AM »
1/20 is pretty slow. If it was windy that day, the tripod could still shake. Also, when @ 200mm, you might want to engage mirror lockup to prevent mirror slap.

or it could be the lens but I doubt it.

Eneloop or the energizer version of it.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: f/22 and diffraction
« on: March 11, 2013, 10:37:08 AM »
Its surprising how much easier it is to make a lens sharper at wider apertures but very, very few lenses can be excellent at the diffraction limit.

It's a sacrifice of IQ to obtain greater DOF. A tilt-shift can cheat this for landscapes but a LF camera with bellows will always be the gold standard for deep DOF.

It's ok, just level the background a bit to match perspective and don't over do the airbrushing too much.
