Planned to go out and shoot fall colours tomorrow. Weather prognosis from yr.no looked promising... Bah! Weather changed plans: tomorrow the location will be covered in low and thick clouds and there will even be some rain. Ain't I the lucky one...
I refuse to budge however, so will brew me a big pot of coffee and drive out tonight to the spot. There will be fiery hot colours tomorrow, even if I have to set fire to a forest.

PS There will be photos, in worst case it will be mug shots of the arsonist. *points jokingly to self*

funny stuff Domino!!  lol

When you enter someone's home for the first time, don't come in bitching and complaining!!

That would only apply if this individual came here and posted something bad about Canonrumors.  Which he didn't.

That's a pretty nit picky comment Acutance.

Maybe you didn't understand my point...when you come into ANYONE'S home (mine, yours, Nikon's, CR, Canon's..etc)  for the first time, don't come in bitching, complaining, and using words like "sucks" to describe something that the vast majority of us like and enjoy.

He didn't even ask for help...just bitched and ranted.  The whole post should be deleted.

I dunno. What is a reasonable definition of a troll?

Im Not disputing this.  But to answer your question my definition would include all of the people who are rude and aggressive towards others, those who put down when they have nothing constructive to say or don't like an opinion that does not match their own.

I agree to a certain point Canon1, but the OP was definitely inappropriate with his ranting and bitching so he deserves some of it.

You live here?   ;D

no, but I rent for about 5-10 minutes a day and I don't want obnoxious complainers coming into my apartment!!

 ;D  ;)

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Deal: Canon EOS-1D X Body $4799

When I see sales like this I always wonder if the cameras/lenses are returned items?

Well if they are, which I am sure they are not, they would be breaking the law.

Private...nothing would surprise me in this day and age....Especially at $4800

They say "search for the light".   I found it in the forest today about 15 minute before sunset.

I crop and level pretty regularly when shooting sports and action....you have to.

Fractions of a degree?  That sounds like OCD to me!  ;D

1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx

Does anyone know why the saturation goes away when I upload?  That file looks nothing like the one on my computer that I posted.

Bdun...I'm noticing it too.   It's pretty clear on my recent volleyball photo.  Saturation, sharpness, and general IQ are not as they are on my Macbook pro.

When you click on the image it does then bring up the full res image in a separate window, and when you do that you can easily compare to see the difference.   

I looked back at several posts...another very noticeable example would be Eldar's cat image a couple pages back....it's a fine image as viewed, but once you click on it and see the full res image it's dramatically better/different. (beautiful Eldar)

Again...not a big deal but something did change recently.    I liked it better before where you were able to see a higher resolution image versus having to click on it and bring up a separate window.   They probably changed it to make it faster to the load the whole page.

This is the first time I've noticed after uploading a picture that the IQ/resolution of the image as it's displayed in the post has been reduced.  The volleyball player, #5 should be sharp, but instead she's fuzzy.   If you click on the image then you get to see the full resolution, but it didn't used to be that way. (i don't think)

Did CR change something recently relating to how images are displayed?

Also, maybe this has something to do with the question Bdun recently?

Women's college volleyball action in the Big Ten vs ACC challenge.

Volleyball is fun to shoot...the women are so emotional after they've won a big point or game...as seen here in this image.
