Looks yummy, Where the milk?

Here is mine 1dx + 85L II @ f1.2
Nice job. How's the 1dx tracking been treating you with f/1.2?

Lenses / Re: UV filter on the new 16-35 f/4?
« on: July 12, 2014, 09:24:12 AM »
I can imagine that this question has been on the forum before. I am sorry if so.
I've bought the new 16-35 f/4. I was recommended to put a B+W Slim 010 UV 77 E MRC filter on the front especially for protection. But this filter isn't available (can't find it on the net either).
Do you use a protection filter or .......

If you put a filter on, remember to take it off when you take photographs.



the better your lens, the more desirable it is not to have a filter on it

Right because all my L glass has filters on them and haven't been able to take a single photo with them.  ::) ::) ::) Some people.... smh...

Stand them in the shade or under a tree that has little specked light. If you place them on the edge of the shade back towards the sun, you can use the sun to rim light them and expose for the shade to give them the softer light on the face.

or find a big white wall and stand them near it to get the reflected light to fill in the shadows.

The quickest thing I would do w/o having to mess with any light mods. The results won't be perfect and especially in mid daylight.

Keep the 650D and add a 7D/70D. I was able to get clean files from the 7D at ISO 3200 for color and 6400 for B&W. The AF was very good and wanted for nothing AF wise from the 7D. The 70D would be very similar.

You can mount the 50mm on the 650D and the 18-35mm on the 70D/7D and your set for just about any kind of portrait or wedding photography. All that lacks would be a flash to aide with an assist beam but that can come later.

5Dc - All my 600rt's - 24-105L + 50mm f/1.8'

That's pretty much all I would need.

I think he forgot that the 5D3 has held it's value better than the d800.

My last post to wrap up this thread. A final goodbye to the 17-40L for me and looking back at some of my favorite photos it captured before it's sold on evilbay.

5Dc is a fine camera but I wouldn't upgrade unless you have your lenses lined up first. It's better money spent on glass first then when you have your lenses ready, the 6D/5D3 will be waiting.

It's simple for the 7D2 to become a hit.

-10 fps
-24mp apsc
-61 Point AF

Everything else is secondary. Call it in canon and start trucking in the money.

Site Information / 1dx users now 300L IS II?

Did anyone notice the change in ranking?

Also, it'd be cool if I could have my ranking as the 200mm f/2 L IS being that's my favorite lens/dream. :D

Photography Technique / Re: 85 vs 135 for portraits
« on: July 09, 2014, 12:37:06 AM »
I find the 85mm doesn't fit my shooting. It's too long or too short but neither where I want it. I use a 50mm for half and full body and the 135mm for headshots. However I'd use the 135mm for everything if I have the space.

Then again, it's smarter to pair the 85mm with a 35mm prime. If you have a 50mm, take a look at adding the 135mm prime.

EOS Bodies / Re: Which is better for high ISO, 6D or 5D Mk III?
« on: July 08, 2014, 08:13:12 AM »
Virtually the same IQ. Slight edge to the 6D for having newer tech. I personally found ISO 12k my limit for color and 25k limit for B&W on the 5d3. The 1dx is the only significant upgrade to either camera.

Windows 8 is the new vista. A lot was learned and shouldn't have been released yet but will lay the groundwork for the next integration of windows.

My personal gripes with win 8.

1. Start menu.
2. Charms bar.
3. The real Control panel is buried.
4. Forced metro.
5. No contextuality in some of the flat design. Continuity.
6. That horrid swipe gesture from left to right on laptops that accidentally brings up another app I didn't want.
7. A real recovery disk anyone?
8. Speaking of which, no CD key?
9. 8.1? A little too late.
10. Windows 7 pro is just a workhorse. It will be the new XP.

but I do like metro on a tablet for one ability only. To run real windows programs in the desktop mode. It's the sole reason I see putting money into a iPad or android tablet a waste for my uses.

I'll wait till windows 9.
