Lenses / Re: Bridge not sharp - why?
« 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.

Portrait / Re: Bikini girl in my studio with my first scenic bacground

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

Landscape / Re: How Would You Edit This Landscape Photo?

Since this isn't my image, I tried to push it to its limits. Its messy in places but eh, hope you like it.

Gavin Hoey's tutorial explained 3 Ways to sharpen your RAW images with ACR and LR.

I don't like how it sharpens the color detail as well, look at the extra banding in the blue next to the rock.

PowerShot Cameras / Re: Any rumors about the G16?
« on: March 07, 2013, 11:56:01 AM »
I like the g15 as it is already. I use mine from ISO100-400 push to 800 if needed but what I'm really using it for is its ridiculous 1/2000th flash sync speed.

EOS Bodies / Re: Plenty of posts on the 7D, how about the 70d
« on: March 07, 2013, 11:22:13 AM »
I expect the 70D to be a re-heated 7D spec wise.

I'd bite the bullet and get 2x 600-RT's so you could still use AF-assist and have a flash off-camera.
Ramon, I checked out your site, magical work with that 50 1.2. really great work.

Anthony

Thanks, I really need to update it soon though. So much has changed...

10 FPS.

61-point AF W/ spot metering per focus point.

High Voltage for faster AF.

Integrated Grip.

1D Weather sealing.

New Sensor tech.

Expect a ridiculous price tag.

Thanks for posting this.  Have you tested this technique against using unsharp mask on an RGB image?  If so, what were the results?

With images that have a lot of color, LAB sharpening avoids a lot of blotchyness in sharpening that normal sharpening does. I would use this with photos that have deep colors and many details.

Fantastic Sharpening Technique! It doesn't ruin colors when sharpening! My new technique for extensive sharpening. I just had to share this.

Check the pins on the foot to make sure they're clean and springy. If not, They won't contact the hotshoe well.

Make sure your camera hot-shoe is clean and corrosion free as well.
