EOS Bodies / Re: *UPDATE 2* Art Wolfe Confirms the 1Ds Mark IV?
« on: September 13, 2011, 07:30:26 PM »

<p><strong>From Art Wolfe’s Facebook Status</strong></p>
<blockquote><p>“I just wanted to extend an extra thank you to @Michael Gurley from Canon for bringing the keys to the candy store this past weekend for the workshop participants. Mike brought with him just about every Canon lens from the widest fish eyes, tilt shift, macro and on through through 800mm along with numerous backs including the new 1DS Mark 4. Everyone had a great time trying out new lenses and backs and we really appreciate it.”</p></blockquote>

It would have to be quite a typo. The original post supposedly read "THE new 1DS Mark 4"... even if there was a genuine typo error with the camera model, why would one use the word "the"? It should've read "a new... " if he was referring to an existing model. And the word "new" - does it even matter if it's new or used, since it's supposedly a current model?

All very odd.

I'll show my backside in Harrods window if a 7D appears this side of Xmas 2011

I'll hold you to that!

Does anyone know what the options are the other way round? In other words, how to mount an EF lens onto the FD mount of a 35mm canon camera?

Two foldable ring cup holders attached to either side of the battery grip - for the hours spent waiting by your tripod mounted camera for the perfect light and shot. Size to fit the Canon Lens Mug. Two holders on opposite sides for weight balance.

Do not underestimate the importance of keeping the photography hydrated and hands-FREE!

Software & Accessories / Re: Aperture converting RAW to .jpg?

Ok! So i have a universal card reader that a plug into my mac. I go straight to aperture click import, go to my card (EOS Digital, 100EOS7D and import my RAW photos. I do not shoot Raw+Jpg. Once uploaded i go to the project that i uploaded it to and all jpg files. Please tell me if im doing something wrong. I am importing CR2 files.

I also use Aperture 3. You may just want to check your camera setting again to ensure you haven't got RAW+jpg. If you're only shooting in RAW, it can only import as RAW.

I have an RS-4 for almost two months now and used it alot during a three week-trip to the US. I carried it with a backpack on dayhikes in Yosemite and the FastenR-3 never worked itself loose.

How have you managed to get both a backpack and a black rapid strap on at the same time?

I'm worried that the screw could work itself loose when I'm not aware and there is no safety strap or anything as a back-up. Making me even more paranoid is the fact that I use a battery grip, so in my mind there are two possible points of failure: the lug that attaches to the strap and the connection between the battery grip and the camera.

On the official company website, there is a video with a tip about placing a touch of water between the rubber ring and camera body that helps create a tighter hold once it dries. I've tried it with and without moisture - works fine either way.  I do tend to re-check that the screw is tightly on the camera a few minutes and again several hours after I've mounted it - never been lose.  Good point about the grip. I have a 7D gripped, no problems. I tend to be pretty careful about my gear, and the slight reservation I had about the camera dropping to the floor were quickly dissipated after my first day out with the strap.

Not wanting to resurrect an older thread...  but I am planning on buying a Black Rapid product today.  I'm just having a hard time deciding between the RS-7 which has the curved strap or an RS-Sport 2.  I probably won't bulk it up with any of the storage compartment accessories, but I kind of liked the idea of a curved strap.  Suggestions?  Comments?  Thanks!

I've had the RS-Sport 2 for 2 months. Highly recommend it, especially as you said you don't need it to store any accessories. Whilst this strap is the light version, shoulder cushion isn't lacking - I'm 6 feet tall and it's very comfortable. Plus the extra under-arm strap is actually very useful for stopping the shoulder pad from slipping whenever you pick up the camera from the hip to shoot - if you've seen the RS website videos, there are tips for reducing this slippage with one of the other without-under-arm-strap models.

Ultimately, I went with the RS-Sport 2 because it is lighter/slimmer (less conspicuous?). I have not tried the other models. I am very happy with mine.

5D Mark II Crazy Price

Best Buy dumping 5D Mark II’s for what appears to be below cost...

Check this out:

"Broadway Camera" is a reputable pro shop in Vancouver and is listing 5DMK2 for $2,299.99 .... sale price.

And it says sale ends 29th August 2011 - maybe that's the day before the press release?

In the last 24 hours, I've read reports of people walking out of Jessops with large boxes of expensive digital camera equipment. I imagine that if you could find the people that have those boxes, you can get a pretty good bargain :-)

nothing like buying from scums to fuel more looting

I don't get why they would drop their price even if there is an announcement because wouldn't their replacement be 3-6 months away?

And the price appears to be back up to the regular 2499

And it's back to the $2499 price

I'm totaly aware that my question do not have an exact answer, but by posting on "Canon Rumors", i was beliving we can talk about Canon rumors without this kind of trolling

Gotta have thick skin on here!

(This one falls into the do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do category). :)

Does this apply to your entire post?  :P

All that said, it usually takes between 4-8 hours for me to process a batch of 40-50 images. An image that is potentially two-page spread material can take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour to edit, whereas I spend less than 7 minutes editing a typical shot.

That's very insightful, thank you.

As for the typical family snap shots or vacation photos, those don't get any post processing love at all  :)

No money for these, but they are the only ones that experience true love!
