I have to shoot a group event next week. It will be organized completely indoors. And it is unpaid (In any case I am not a pro photographer). I am the sole member of the group who has some enthusiasm in photography (read who has two cameras and a couple of flashes), so the duty has fallen upon me. It is not a lifetime event for anyone (that is it is not a wedding, or engagement or anything as such).
I do not want to spend a lot of time on post processing (in fact it will be best if I do not have to spend any) in front of my computer. So I am planning to take the photos in Large/Fine JPEG format (will enable me to take a lot of "snaps" with my current cards). Unfortunately, I have never done this - that is never taken photos in JPEG format. Even before I bought my first (digital) camera, I was reading about photography and so the first photo taken by me with my first camera was a in RAW format.
I am looking for your help in deciding which picture style should I choose to shoot? Standard or Portrait or Landscape or Neutral or Faithful? If I go for User Defined styles then what should I choose as values of the four things that we can choose inside each of the photo styles. I shall use a 40D and a 50D (with a 12-24 Tokina, and an old EF 22-55mm Canon lens, may be a a few with 50mm 1.8 II).
Thank you for your time and help.
Thats pretty good for 3200. I never got shots with this low grain/ noise on 3200 on my 5dc...
I sold my 3 strobes with battery packs to fund purchase of flash units instead, but not sure what to get. I shoot weddings and portraits and would like a flash on a stand and another one for on camera use as well but only have 500-750 to spend on everything. Can anyone help me find a suitable setup to accomplish this? I have a little experience with the 430exII but I could never figure out how to get it to slave.
Any help would be amazing! Thank you.
Nice shots RL... but there has to be some NR going on there... I had a 5Dc and I could get visible noise at 400 iso and needed denoising....
I agree the image the 5D gives is very good. But I tested the amount of noise it had compared to a T2i and at 1600 ISo the T2i was cleaner. The only advantage the 5Dc has was shallow DoF, rest the T2i won on other criteria.
Hey y'all!, I'm a long time lurker but first time poster.
I'm shooting an indoor wedding in December, and plan to rent a 5D mkIII to complement my 7D and a 40D.
Coming from a 7D is there anything major I should be aware of using the 5Diii? Tips and/or advice?
Lenses I own:
-the nifty fifty
-Canon 17-55 2.8 IS
-Kiron 105 2.8 Macro
Gear I plan to rent:
Tamron 24-70 2.8 VC
Canon 70-200 2.8L is II
Canon 5D mk III
1. Will I need 60mb/s cards to shoot RAW with the 5Diii, or will 30mb/s suffice?
2. In your experience/opinion, how much speed/capacity do you need? (I'll have (3) 4GB 30mb/s cards, (1)8GB 30mb/s, and hopefully (3) shiny new 16GB 60mb/s cards (all SanDisk Extreme, Ultra, or Extreme III) Good? Should I pick up some more?
3. I have 2 chargers and should have at least (2) batteries per camera.
Ok...This is more of a rant than anything....so here goes!
NEVER EVER...EVER...EVER have an amateur, shooting with a different camera brand and very poor quality lenses shoot a wedding with you ( you had sympathy for this person and wanted to help them grow as a photographer and allowed them to assist you, photographing)
Holy smokes!!! I'm using L glass plus a 5D MK II and in order to get the quality of their picture to something half decent and that looks like a hint of my pictures, talk about POST POST POST...Geesh!
They were using a Pentax K-X and a Tamron AF-70-300. Now before everyone jumps on my case, I did provide a canon 40D with Canon Lenses ( NON-L) for him to use, however, it was sooo different than his own camera, he couldn't figure it out within the few hours he was there.
This is not a rip on the photographer, he actually has a great eye for composition....he just needs a better system....sorry..
Short of great canon (non-L primes) 85 1.8, heck the 50 mm 1.8 Mark 1....I don't know I'll ever buy poor quality lenses...
sorry....more of a rant...lol
Have a good night.
Agreed. I upgraded from a 1D mk.ii to the 5Dc... the IQ jump was amazing. But I see a similar jump in IQ to the 5Diii (which is very similar to the IQ of the 5Dii).
How good is the IQ of a 5Dc though? Is it impressive by today's standards?
