Lenses / Re: UV filter on the new 16-35 f/4?
« on: July 12, 2014, 06:07:01 AM »
I can imagine that this question has been on the forum before. I am sorry if so.
I've bought the new 16-35 f/4. I was recommended to put a B+W Slim 010 UV 77 E MRC filter on the front especially for protection. But this filter isn't available (can't find it on the net either).
Do you use a protection filter or .......

If you put a filter on, remember to take it off when you take photographs.

Great shots ALL!!!  These are from last weekend.  7D 300L f4 w/1.4 III extender
You may want to work a bit on the blown out highlights and the purple/pink fringing (especially on the wings in no 2). Many of the dragonfly pics in this thread have blown out highlights in the eye or the wings. This is always a challenge with these creatures.

Not a perfect photo, but I hope its interesting.
Found this guy flapping around near my pond, he couldn't fly properly, he'd keep tipping upside down
and flap around on the ground. So I took him indoors to save him from the birds. Although I tried to feed him he died the next day.  Just wonder if he was "born" that way or if a bird got him?

His eyes look deflated :o
What and how did you try to feed him?

Nice sense of speed with the motion blur on the wings. I also like the dark background. Well done!

Marty McFly hovertech equipped California Quail.

Excellent shot with perfect timing!

Winter in Scotland.

Very nice. I particularly like the lighting and the abstractness. Would have thought this would be in the Alps or Himalaya

#2 has an interesting scenery. Camera standpoint could be a bit higher though and photo does lack sharpness on my screen (e.g. Around the number plate area).

In #1 most bits of the car are quite dark (and also lack of sharpness)

Good series. I like the rhythm in the first part of the set.

I could imagine that eventually dSLRs will fade out, in the sense that dSLR style bodies would no longer be equipped with a mirror. With technologies improving, I think that eventually EVFs will have an unobservable lag time and resolution instistinguishable from an optical VF. By that time, EVFs may be preferred over OVFs because they can offer extra features such as focus peaking, "live view", histogram overlays , etc etc. and without the mirror, higher fps rates should be achievable. (Who on CR would not welcome an 1DM with 24 fps?)

Many may think that OVF will always be superior to EVFs because they are today, but a decade  ago, many also thought that film would always be superior to digital.

I do not think this is driven by declining sales figures as in the OP, but more by ever advancing tech.

I use an off camera GPS tracker when on trips. There I have to download A-GPS settings from internet, which are valid for a week or so, to get very fast acquisition (time to first fix). Without such download, acquisition takes a fair bit longer. Would such method exist for the 6D as well?

There are pro's and con's for having GPS in or off camera:
- in camera: you can never forget your tracker and you get the coordinated directly into your exif.
- off camera: you can record your entire route, also when not taking photos and you do not drain your battery doing it.

I am happy with my Dell 2713. Decent color reproduction, good resolution, energy efficient, affordable and good range of connections.

Here's another.  Wandering Glider, also shot with 5Diii and 180 Macro.

This one my favorite? Excellent capture in flight!
