EOS Bodies / Re: EOS-1D X & EOS-1D C Cold Weather Autofocus Issues
« on: April 04, 2014, 04:09:16 AM »
Oh damn, I'm going to both Antarctica and Iceland later this year.  How am I to determine if my 1D X is affected?  Is there a serial number list to check?  I haven't had any problems with it so far, but never really shot in really cold weather.

Put it in the freezer? ;)

Water spray! This was from the 'Legends Cup' - strange old-school racing that I've only seen once.

There are always good reasons to shoot in various modes.

P-mode is fantastic when run-and-gunning a live event where light is constantly shifting as well as the subjects. Where shutter speed or aperture effects aren't important to the shot.

A-priority is great for various reasons especially when trying to control depth-of-field. Or when trying to keep the ISO below a certain point.

T-priority is wonderful when you need a specific shutter speed for either greater sharpness or blurriness of action.

Manual also has it's place. I use this frequently as well.... I shoot on the 5D3 and will set my aperture for the depth-of-field I prefer, set my time to a minimum of 60 (for motion shots) and Auto-ISO to let the camera adjust for the lighting. This way I have control over the look. The 5D3 is great in low-light situations, so the manual feature with auto-ISO comes in very hand at this point.

Being able to set a minimum shutter speed is an absolute gem of a feature on this camera. Love it  :)

I have to try REALLY hard no to tell people they are holding the lens "wrong", i.e, with 4 fingers ON TOP of the lens, not underneath.

A friend of mine does that (and it looks really stupid to me) but there's no way he's changing his technique because the 'right' way is uncomfortable for him. No matter how often I told him he gets a less stable grip, and the tendency of zoom rotation to tip the camera. Not being a snob, just trying to help - but I gave up.  ::)

Funny, and around 3.54 minutes you get a good sense why a camera snob must have a BIG lens :D

EOS-M / Re: DIY-FOLDABLE MIRROR FOR EOS-M= MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY

That's cool Surapon! Now all that remains is cutting off the excess of the mirror box extending below, and in front of the camera body :)


Thank you so much, my dear friend mrsfotografie.
From  your great IDEA, I already Change EOS-M Mirrorless DSLR, to Full size Flippable Mirror EOS-M - MC. ( MC = Macro capability for Lazy Photographer like me).
Ha, Ha, Ha---It must have 2 Heads to make it = Right.
Surapon

My dear friend Surapon, that looks really great! I bet the camera is now also easier to hold? I hope your wife is not mad for you destroying her mirror :D

By the way I like your old-school FD style lens cap :)

Thanks so much for helping out the other guys EML58, and glad you found the text useful.  I have let the guys who help me with my website know about the problem with some countries not getting access, hoping they figure it out today.  Thanks again
cheers

Grant Atkinson, I'm happy to confirm the link works now! Thanks! I think this will go a long way to help me better understand the AF features on my 5D MkIII.

So much for mirror less...  8)

Too good!!!  ;D ;D ;D

Wait, with all these accessories added to the EOS-M, isn't a 100D smaller?

Zion National Park in March 2014

I really like the composition of your pictures, which were very well done in all 3 of them. The use of leading lines was well done.

BTW, are these HDRs? Somehow for me they seem to be unreal. The dark skies suggest a rather dull light but there is such a lot of detail in your pictures. The scenes are brighter and the colors more satured than it would normally be the case with such a sky and time of the day. The reflections in the water does not seem to match the sky in all 3 pictures. There are no shadows at all. Especially the first image looks like a collage of at least 3 photos. So for me the post processing seems to be overdone.

They're HDR's. I tried HDR technique too and it was a phase I had to go through, but nothing as unreal as this. Nowadays I push the shadows and hold back the highlights as necessary, but no more HDR for me!

my second image from Oman shows the dhow wharfs in the city of Sur.

Here's one I took earlier ;) Sorry, not a landscape...

What always amazes me is how those dhows (provided they are operational) appear to sit on the water due to their small draft. Again this is a shot from Sur, but taken with older equipment.

That's a lovely picture. I would have liked to spend more time in Sur but arrived there at dusk and had to drive to Nizwa the next day. The tide had flowed out so I didn't notice they ride so high...
