Lenses / Re: Is your midrange gear insured?
« on: February 14, 2013, 02:14:17 PM »
I made a point to insure everything. Filters, Softboxes, light stands, the works because those little things stolen at one time add up to a significant amount of $$$$.

Oh you mean like the 35 1.4 which is a big ass dream contrary to the older 50 1.4 and 85 1.4 which just fuck up on every full frame?

Not on every full frame. My Sigma 85 works like a dream. AF is fine.

Not in my experience. The Sigma 50mm has a horrendous in-consistency getting focus.

Don't blame the tools for poor craftsmanship. Infact, since the d800 is doing so well for you, let's see some photos you've taken with it. Please do post.

I've posted heavily adjusted d800 shots on here last year.  They're awesome.
Can't do that with a 5d2!! no bloody way at all
I could tell you where to look  ...  but...

Let's see you post something from your fabulous 5d2... Like some of those test shots I requested.

I don't shoot test charts like youself, but I will post these.

Now please, indulge me in your d800 art aglet.

Aglet, why u no Nikon already? My take after eating my popcorn.

Aglet - There is FPN on 5D2 files.

General response - Don't lift the shadows +3 stops. 5D2 is a fantastic camera.

Aglet - Here is a file that shows the FPN.

General Response - Don't lift the shadows +3 stops. 5D2 is a fantastic camera.

Aglet - Well Prove me wrong! supply me photos!

Aglet - >:( That doesn't mean nothing!

Rlphoto - :| Pass the popcorn.
Actually, my FF gear is now Nikon, but that's not the point either. :)
FPN on my 5d2 showed up at less than a 2-stop push applied to levels that should have been high enough to not exhibit a problem (e.g. -3 EV down from metered)

Repeating for (who's keeping track of how many times now?)
If anyone of you 5d2-lovers actually HAS one, and are brave enough to show, or at least TELL, us how it performs in simple tests, as outlined a pg or 2 back, then please do so. (RL?...)
I'd like to compare it to mine, which might have been a bit of a lemon in the FPN area.
If you're willing to post a sample of a pushed raw file, kindly include a full res crop so we can see pixel-per-pixel, not scaled down so small as to obliterate FPN in the averaging.
Thank-you.

PowerShot / G15 Sync-speed. What is the limit?
« on: February 12, 2013, 04:15:26 PM »
I've been wanting a HSS with strobes and found a cheap solution. Get a Electronic shutter.

How fast will the G15 sync and can I use my El-cheapo cowboy triggers (It only uses the center-point on the hotshoe) to trigger my strobes? Has anyone used their G series camera like this?

Edit: Found it. 1/2000th but still, any issues with running strobes? Triggering? Pit-falls?

Edit: Btw Aglet, I could do a better job with a D30 than what you've shown as samples.

Lighting / Re: Selling off my old strobes, What to get next?
« on: February 11, 2013, 05:43:04 PM »
I've looked at all the options and It looks like Einstein will be my strobe of choice for the next decade.

Broncolor/Profoto- Fantastic mods, & fast duration's w/pack systems but steep... Very steep.

Elinchrom - Great Mods, (Neat inflated softboxes), but duration's are too slow and decent price for mono-lights, packs are pricey. Gives the Unique HSS, very interesting.

PCB - Ok Mods, Fast durations or Consistent color, not both at the same time... VML's are cheap, Mono's are cheap, Mods are cheap and Service is top-notch USA. HSS is not confirmed with odins...

Why a UV filter on the Shorty Forty?

It's B&W 007 Clear MRC:  http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/475488-REG/B_W_66_1001698_52mm_007_Protection_Clear.html
I know its B&W, but why? The 40mm is cheap. Its like me buying a B&W filter for a 50mm 1.8.

I'd wait and save the cash until then. If the 7D2 is really good, then you won't even have to worry about upgrading to the 5D3 later.

It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. Keep the 7D.
