This is Canon's counterpart.  Looks like a great challenge for Canon to catch up.  Can't wait...

You should go to your CF card manufacturer's website to download their file recovery software.  I know my Sony and Transcend cards have this option and I imagine others would have this application, too.

Yellow-crowned Night Heron visits the OC for the fine-dining locally.

Wow! Great timing! I bet that bite hurt the bird. Were you already on to the bird or did its scream alert you?

Just dumb luck that I caught the epic struggle from beginning to end, 3-4 minutes. That photo showed the turning point after the bird escaped from the crab's claws and
got enough leverage to chomp the crab into 2 pieces.  Here's the Victor with the spoils.

Wow! That is something! You must have shot a pile of photos.

I also experimented with my 60D's video.  The original HD footage is much clearer -- I had reduced resolution to upload to YouTube: 
YCNH 3270 Small | Large

LSV - I didn't think we had any Yellow Crowned Night Herons here - though I did note you mention "rare".  According to whatbird.com this bird doesn't in southern Cal.  http://identify.whatbird.com/obj/53/_/Yellow-crowned_Night-Heron.aspx.  Was there any mention as to what the Yellow heron was doing in this part?  Fascinating and good eye !


You know birds -- the last visit to the OC was 35 years ago! It was an adult that time in 1977.  San Diego County has some coming over from Mexico from time to time.  I'd learned of this visitor from our local (very excited) birders.  Looks like he has become a permanent resident.

I nominate Bernie Madoff to run the plan...only complication is he may be a Nikon shooter.

Reviews / Re: Review - Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II

Good review, but I was distracted by multiple instances of incorrect usage of "it's" for the possessive pronoun "its".  It's worth mentioning because it is a formal review.

Definitely true, CR2+ ... Nate Silver said so.
