5D MK III Sample Images / 5D3's First Engagement Shoot...
« on: March 22, 2012, 02:12:51 AM »
Picked her up at noon, shot with her at 5:30 (still have lots to learn about the menu-ing system).  However, I can say the ISOs really are amazing, and I can report that she works just fine with PocketWizard FlexTT5s...

(pardon all the post work - trying out some new presets I've been toying with in LR4)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5DIII and LR4
« on: March 21, 2012, 10:34:56 PM »
Just finished a gig with the 5D3, and lo and behold - there is no LR4 support for the 5D3 RAW files.

Any suggestions?

Lenses / Imported vs. USA Lenses?
« on: March 19, 2012, 11:15:34 AM »
Looking at B&H Photo's site, I see they sometimes have two versions of a lens listed; a USA model and an "imported" version that is usually a little cheaper.

What is the difference between the two?

EOS Bodies / Amazon Bestsellers and 5D3
« on: March 12, 2012, 05:17:01 PM »
Saw over on Nikon Rumors that the d800 is 10th on Amazon's Bestsellers list.  At the time of the post, they claimed the 5D3 was 83rd.  But now - I don't even see it in the top 100...


It's also #1 in the separate dSLR category :: http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/photo/?ie=UTF8&tag=nikorumo-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=390957#1

wtf?   :'(

Site Information / Gear Classifieds?

Site suggestion:  Gear Classifieds, for photographers to buy/sell/trade their used equipment.

Just a thought.

Third Party Manufacturers / Nikon d800 Pre-orders are "Unprecedented"
« on: March 06, 2012, 11:37:09 AM »

Nikon has confirmed that pre-orders for its new semi-pro full-frame DSLR, the Nikon D800, have been better than expected.

Speaking to TechRadar, Jeremy Gilbert, Nikon UK marketing manager, said, "People have been asking for the D800 for the past two years, and the excitement has been building and building."

The D800 was announced in February and is the world's highest resolution full-frame camera, packing 36 million pixels.

According to Nikon, it doesn't replace the D700, but rather sits alongside it in a new category that seems to be pretty squarely aimed at medium format users and portrait photographers.

Gilbert continued, "The feedback has been really good, and the pre-orders are unprecedented."


EOS Bodies / New 5D2 Price - Cheaper!
« on: March 03, 2012, 07:48:47 PM »
Just got back from the camera shop where the dealer told me the confirmed price drop for the 5D2 will be $2,199 starting tomorrow.

This should make those who were waiting to score a 5D2 at a discount fairly happy!


EOS Bodies / 5D3 vs. 5D2 image comparo...
« on: March 03, 2012, 11:10:53 AM »
OK - in full disclosure I was about to write up a post how I was disappointed with some of the noise in the high ISO shots being offered on Canon Europe's website.  Then - in order to be fair I figured I should compare the photos to the 5DMKII.  Wow - what an improvement!  I just downloaded some 6400 full res MKII samples, and the improvement is staggering.

Here is a side by side comparo...

Original 6400 5DMKIII image: http://cpn.canon-europe.com/files/education/technical/inside_canon_eos_5d_mark_iii/16_cinc_big.jpg
Original 6400 5DMKII image: http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/canon/eos_5d_mk2-assets/nightshot6400.jpg
Another 6400 5D2 image in more "normal" light conditions:  http://www.stevehuffphotos.com/Steve_Huff_Photos/CANON_5D_MARKII_REVIEW_AND_SAMPLES_2_files/iso6400fullsizewinny.jpg

I'm amazed at the improvement in noise reduction!

EOS Bodies / 5DMKIII Street Date?
« on: March 02, 2012, 05:27:23 PM »
So - I'm seeing a lot of information about a "late March" arrival for the 5D3, but not getting any concrete information in any of the articles I've read.

Does anyone know the a real launch date for the 5D3?  Or is Canon still holding out on announcing a date?

EOS Bodies / Canon CPS Preorders :: Gold vs. Platinum
« on: February 06, 2012, 12:42:17 AM »
I saw in the 1DX Update that Platinum CPS members get priority ordering on the 1DX body.  But, my question is, do Gold members also get an opportunity once the platinum notifications have gone out?  Or are they just like any other member of the general public at that point?

Software & Accessories / Tripod w/ Spiked Feet and Air Travel?
« on: December 23, 2011, 01:48:33 PM »
Has anyone ever run into issues traveling with spiked feet on a tripod as a carry-on item?  I just got some spiked feet for my Manfrotto while visiting family on holiday, and I'm worried TSA will confiscate them.  I'm considering shipping them back home so I don't get forced into throwing them away at the airport.

Any advice/experience on this matter?  Thanks!

Lighting / PocketWizard FlexTT5 and 580exII RF Issues?
« on: December 10, 2011, 10:29:27 AM »
Does anyone here have experience with PWs FlexTT5 and the 580exII?  I'm looking at moving into remote ETTL, but have seen some reviews where range was severely limited due to high RF interference from the 580. 

Granted, I'd probably eventually get the AC7 RF hard-shields, just because that horizontal mount configuration is awesome for umbrellas, but I'd still like to hear some real world experiences.  Thanks!
