EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 1DX vs 5DIII Wildlife Comparison
« on: February 18, 2013, 12:32:09 PM »
1Dx > 5D3 but then again 2x 5D3's = 1Dx. :|

The voice memo feature of the 1D X comes in handy for that sort of thing.  I suppose you could do something similiar with your phone or a small voice recorder - something one-handed would likely be easier than a notepad+pen.

Man, I had a serious need for quick voice memos like this at a photo booth I did recently. >:(

Popcorn ready.

Just don't listen to the measurabators on this forum, listen to the general advise of what the real photographers say and produce with the equipment.

After months of development and research at the massive canon R&D department we present to you, the professional consumer.....  An AF-Assist beam that actually works.  ;D ;D ;D

Lenses / Re: How to reduce the nd filter warm color cast?
« on: February 15, 2013, 04:36:25 PM »
I haven't noticed a 3000K shift in color with any of my B&W filters. Even my old cheapo colkin ND filters aren't that terrible, but then again I'm using the Pro-glass LEE and Schneider 4X4 & 4X6 GND & ND square filters.

You might want to look into a square system, Its fantastic.


In hindsight I should have went the big stopper route, though to be fair, the B+W was hardly a budget option.

I'm interested in the 3.0 filters you've used made by cokin, can't find these anywhere?
Had a look for the Schneider 3.0 filters as well, having bother finding them, other than as being sold under the sister B+W brand.  I could find the Schneider square filters at up to 1.8 ND, but not as high as 3.0.

Just interested in the comparison you've made between the colour shift on my B+W 3.0 (N.B. 1000 NDx, 10 stop, not 3 stop) and the similar cokin and schneider filters you've used.

Can you give me a link to the Cokin 3.0 ND (1000x, 10 stop) filter?  If they are as cast free as you say then I might end up getting one.


The Big stopper is my only 10-stop ND, I haven't used it more than twice compared to my GND's. Haven't seen a 3000K color cast but perhaps more like 500K cooler.

Colkin and Schneider don't make ND's that dark but on the ones I do own, a 3000K shift I haven't seen but I've only had the .3-.6-.9 filters GND's before I ditched Colkin all together.

IE: My fav's.

I believe a fixed 50mm on FF will teach someone much more than any zoom lens ever could. Composition.

Lenses / Re: Sigma 35 or 135L??
« on: February 15, 2013, 12:22:39 PM »
I'm more of a tele-guy so I'd say 135L but the 35mm will get used more.

The real question I want to ask...

Can you explain why the Insurance company didn't cover your equipment? This would be very useful to know.

Lenses / Re: Would a 14-28mm f/1.8 be possible?

Yes, but it would suck or be really expensive.

Buy LEE or schnider optic.

If you're talking about schnEider :-> optics (B+W) - they are just releasing their 82mm nd filters, they much more expensive than Heliopan (probably early adopter's premium) and one of the above posts also states that b+w also has a color cast - so I went for the cheaper Heliopan w/o coating (it's not supposed to let through light after all).

I haven't noticed a 3000K shift in color with any of my B&W filters. Even my old cheapo colkin ND filters aren't that terrible, but then again I'm using the Pro-glass LEE and Schneider 4X4 & 4X6 GND & ND square filters.

I invested in fast primes then bought the 24-105. If I need faster than f/4, I use the fastest I can get. Sub- f/2.

But I generally always use my 24-105L at f/5.6 or smaller where the IQ difference is minimal. It does have a bit of distortion though.
