Remember is supposed to be

over exposed
double exposed
triple exposed
highlighted to the extreme
... one I did two weeks ago,
... was steamy hot and a heck of a
hike to this small water fall.
But well worth it.

Again, thanks for the tips, and advice.   :)

As for the convert from RAW to JPEG, are you sure you don't lose sharpness? 
I could have sworn I saw some sharpness drop off, but then again, I'm making
use of a large 46" Plasma monitor and maybe it's just my monitor and old eyes.   ???

Lastly, thank you very much to all the Canon Rumor folks,
such a great bunch of folks, I just came from another forums w
here they're rude, pre-madonna, and down right mean. 

Cut a novice some slack will ya?   :-\

Software & Accessories / Magic Lantern Questions
« on: April 11, 2013, 05:25:49 AM »
Howdy folks, it's me again  ;D

Searched Canon Rumors and the last
thread about Magic Lantern was back
sometime in October 2012.  So not to
necro an old thread, I started a new.
Please excuse me if this question is
already answered, but searching CR
for Canon 60D + Magic Lantern +
SDHC UHS-I, was fruitless.

According to a web quote:

"The Canon 60D accepts SD/SDHC/SDXC
memory cards, and does not ship with a card.
Canon recommends a Class 6 card or faster for
recording HD movies. UHS-I compliant cards are
supported, but the camera does not
take advantage of their increased bus speeds

"Note that the Canon 60D manual says
"SDHC and SDXC cards featuring UHS (Ultra High
Speed) enable a maximum writing speed of SD
Speed Class 10". We asked Canon for clarification
on this, and they said the Canon 60D is
not UHS-I compliant
but should work with
UHS cards at up to SD Class 10 speeds."

Would installing Magic Lantern on the 60D
allow the camera to take advantage of the
UHS-I (Ultra High Speed-1) write capability
of the SD UHS-I card?

Thanks in advance for any advice, tips, or tricks.

Lastly, how hard is it really to install ML and is it really worth it?

Why is there a line in the middle of the sky, sort of like there is a yellow square in the middle of the second one?

Other than that, welcome to the forums, and glad you choose the HDR section to post.

Lenses / Re: There is euphoria in these halls...
« on: April 10, 2013, 08:29:25 AM »
Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes.




I went for the 70-300 L lens because:

1) What I could afford for now.

2) I want a zoom lens first, then wide second.

3) Next lens will be a EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens

From what I've read, researched, etc. 70-300mm + 16-35mm makes
for a good (Not great) combo for a novice like me.

Peace! 8)

Oh well.

I got my 70-300 L lens now, so that'll keep me happy for a year.

Thanks for the tips, both of you. 

I bought LR... got a discount at checkout, so not too bad... BUT.   :-[  :-\ not impressed.

ACDSee 15

...has more features IMO, yeah there are a few things (Only an hour of
playing around with LR) that LR can do more than ACDSee, but it's about
the same, I mean, it's manipulating an image, if the image is already crappy
(in my case because I have a F&^%ing kit lens 18-135mm S) then there is ONLY
so much ACDSee and LR are going to fix. 

*Le sigh* I think I need to focus more on my actions while taking pictures,
learning my camera more and ... LEARNING HOW TO SHOOT.

Manual mode is just so damn hard, either I overexpose, get noise, no depth,
get blurry shots, etc. etc.

Peace! :-\  8)

Picture was taken from the web, it's NOT my picture.

So far I think:

A) Christmas tree tinsel

B) Some kind of back pack with bars holding the light boxes up.

C) Cargo shorts

D) Light boxes

Yeah, it's hard to see.

Software & Accessories / Equipment Breakdown
« on: April 04, 2013, 06:22:33 AM »
Ahoy mates !

Just for fun and out of curiosity I was wondering if you
good folks could help me breakdown the items in this
picture, minus the smart ass remarks like, shoes, an arm,
etc.  What I mean is the 'camera' gear he's using, I've
never seen nor can I Google search any of the equipment
seen 'covering' the photographer's body.

I know lots of you are going to say "that looks silly", "don't do
it", and "that looks stupid".  Please get beyond that, be
productive rather than destructive.


Thanks in advance, and just list the best you can, I'm
just wondering where and what cost some of that stuff is?

Peace! 8) 

HDR - High Dynamic Range / Re: Problems with Noise in Dark Areas
« on: April 04, 2013, 06:04:43 AM »
One of the biggest improvements you can make with HDR shooting is thinking in high dynamic range before you shoot. 

That's what I'm doing now, thinking in color.   ;)

Shot this a few years back when I was still on Pentax gear.  I think it was a 5 shot bracket with 2 ev steps per shot at 450mm stopped way down.

Nice, you could probably still have some more fun with that shot.

Peace! 8)
