You might want to look at this one - looks like the same type (if not the same item) for a lower price.

1dx and 300 2.8is

1/1600th
f 3.2
iso 640

i switched from my normal AF case #1 to AF case #6 and the result were really good for lacrosse, so in the future i'll probably start using it for football, soccer...etc.

i think i got his eyes in focus. 8)

Great shot! Unfortunately, the goalie also got his eyes in focus and made the save. Love the way you got both in the frame.

And while this one was actually shot with a 1D Mark IV, which is only 10 fps, sometimes that allows you to get the perfect shot:

Not nearly as good as sanj's spitting cobra, but a sequence showing what you can catch at 12fps.

This isn't a rumor, right?  ;)

I do not know. I never give forums my correct date of birth for security reasons, so maybe sanj has some inside info or it is her "forum's profile" birthday!

Thank you all so much for your good wishes - no, not a rumor. Today's the day - 21 again!

Hey, Jack Benny made a career out of being 39, so you've got him beat! Happy Birthday and many happy returns of the day!

Hi guys, I wonder if anyone knew and could explain the wave lines in the fence bars at the edges in this shot? I haven't seen it before at all and it seem they follow the curves of the subject behind them? Weird to me at least.

It's shot @f1.2 with the 85mm L II.



It's an optical illusion, I believe. Here's an article about them - not exactly the same, but I think that it is just the way the eye gets fooled - if you hold a straightedge up next to the fence, the rails look straight.  http://brainden.com/line-illusions.htm

Had a chance to shoot some pictures of my grandson playing in the yard today. I liked the expression and the sharpness on this one. 200 f2, ISO 500, 1/1000 sec. @ f2.

One of the moon over Atlanta tonight. 200-400 1.4x L @560, ISO 400, 1/1250 sec. @ f5.6

nice shot...how do you like your 200-400?

I haven't had much chance to shoot with it yet (other than the moon shots), but I'm very pleased with it. I'm hoping to get out to shoot some lacrosse soon, and I'm thinking that the ability to flip the teleconverter in and out is going to be really useful.

And here are a couple from the seats at the Nashville Predators-Winnipeg Jets game last night. 200 f2.8L II, ISO 2000, 1/1250 sec. @ƒ2.8, AWB.

eli...you have some nice captures here.  one suggestion, crop some of them(not all) a little bit more.  if you're producing images for the web or for small print, then cropping brings us much closer (like having a front row seat) to the action.

example, after cropping your photo...

only trying to provide constructive critique...nice shots in general!   :D

Thanks - you're absolutely right about that one, I should have cropped it tighter. Sometimes I get too caught up in showing the whole goal for context, but since Hutton was hugging the near pipe with his left leg inside the net I really didn't need to show the whole thing.

Canon General / Re: Why Scott Kelby Switched to Canon
« on: January 21, 2014, 11:38:52 AM »

Scott Kelby is successful...Scott Kelby is a businessman...shocking.

You see, it's a bit like when doctors recommend a certain drug and then you discover they were taking money from the pharma company. Maybe they really believe the drug is great and being sponsored by its manufacturer has nothing to do with their professional opinion... but you'll never put the doubt 100% aside.

We're certainly not a that level here, but in a way I believe many people felt like Kelby's economical interests did get in the way of his photographic recommendations in this situation. Might be the theatricality of the whole thing.

One thing that seems to get lost in this discussion is that Scott is NOT recommending that anyone switch to Canon. As a fairly high-profile camera person, he has been asked repeatedly why he made the switch, and so he decided to put together a video explaining that so that he wouldn't have to keep answering the question over and over. Whether you believe what he says, or whether you take it with a grain of salt, is YOUR decision. Personally, I have too much invested in Canon gear that I've acquired over the years to even think about changing, especially since my camera gear far exceeds my talents. But the photographer who shot my daughter's wedding 9 years ago switched from Canon to Nikon (prior to the introduction of the 5DIII and the 1Dx), and is perfectly happy with his choice.
