Software & Accessories / Re: Tripod centre column - yes or no
« on: July 03, 2014, 08:46:47 AM »
I like a center column and like having my center column boom out like on my vanguard travel tripod. I've used the boom function a lot.

But my heavier aluminum manfrotto tripod is what I would take to the beach or the studio for extra stability. It has a center column but it reaches neck height without using it and works great.

If your really serious about tripods, then a gitzo with no center column would be a tank for those hurricane winds.

It seems that windows phone will suffer from win 8 syndrome concaved with less dynamic range issues from canon. :P

My copy just came in. It's chunky compared to the 17-40.

Stupid many of you thinking about buttons and stuff, if you buy a new beautiful car you don´t think about the buttons YOU GET USED TO IT ... i´ve been a canon owner since 2008 when i started shooting , and been shooting aurora, volcano's and models and using 1ds mk III now , i like it but i´ve been waiting for something like the d810.
Really cant wait for the results in aurora and night shooting and the d810 really F****d the 5d mk III up in video shooting BIG differences so grow up and think about the facts if you really are a good shooter and need a better quality in your photos, if not stick to your favorite. As in now Nikon got the best one on the market ( sorry to say for you religious people )  but it´s a fact

all the best to you

Welcome to CR.

Are you feeling better now?  ;)
I think my sarcasm about buttons has wedged itself into this poor fellows mind. XD

The ISO button is still in a funny spot. I will not switch until that issue is addressed.

REC button can be set to ISO function. it's more easier than canon ISO button :D
If I remember, the rec button was a stretch to reach. Still not as good as canon.

The easiest solution would be a Drobo or an NAS with a RAID solution. Then have a system for backing up that Drobo or NAS.

I use an internal 10TB RAID system on my machine, which then syncs my files to a 4TB external HDD. This works out because by the time I fill up 4tb of data, larger capacity HDDs will be available and the backup drive can be upgraded to a 6-8TB drive then.

But that's how I keep it simple.

YES, it is in a funny spot but it's easy enough to find, if a tad awkward at times.

However, this is not an issue that needs to be addressed, it already has been.
You can program ISO function to the rear control wheel, for example.

I find it wonderfully easy to operate the camera in Av mode using the front control for aperture, Canon-style, with the rear control dial providing fast easy ISO setting ability even better than the Canon button-then-control-wheel method, just watch your ISO in the viewfinder display.
When in full manual, ya, gotta schlep back to the awkward but easy to find button but might also be possible to program ISO to another button on the front of the camera too....  My front buttons are currently programmed for DoF/stopdown and artificial horizon control instead.

Edit - clarified language

I was joking but it still sucks on the nikon. My 5D3 ISO is programmed to the set button on the rear which plus the standard two wheels for aperture and shutter speed, makes operation Uber fast. A huge ergo+ towards canon and is something that is very annoying to me when I use nikon bodies.

Photography Technique / Re: E-TTL: To use or not?
« on: June 29, 2014, 09:45:07 AM »
For me, ETTL for on camera and Manual for off camera.

I noticed that ettl off camera can nuke exposures of there is something bright in the background and if your outside the light is pretty constant for one setting. However, I did discover the thyristor doesn't have this problem of nuking exposures as long as you keep your aperture and ISO the same.

Lenses / Re: Canon 135L F2.0 - Am I expecting too much

The 135L isn't a apochromatic corrected lens. It will have that fringe on the bokeh but so will the majority of canon lenses.

If they did make it APS-H, It would have a APS-C crop mode if the mirror would clear EF-s lenses. Then it makes complete sense as you'll get alittle more coverage with EF lenses but not costing FF and crop mode when you need it. Win-Win.
