Software & Accessories / any records to raw to both cards?
« on: March 12, 2014, 04:36:33 PM »
Hi

Does anyone record raw to both cards simultaneously?  This would give a bit of extra security in case a card failed, but seems like over kill since I have yet to have a card die in the field.

If I bite on the Sony A7R, I would want to get a Nikor 14-24, since the Canon 16-35 is not exactly the sharpest lens on the block.

Does anyone experience with this combo? Or any reviews on to adapt the 14-24 to the Sony?

Current 600 is a great lens.  Only suggestion besides major weight loss, would be a built-in 1.4.  That would be handy!

Time to foresake my 12 step program and rejoin the bag of the month club  ;D

1.  More ram in the 1Dx and 5DM3 (probably double them to avoid buffering out)
2.  Dual CF slots in 5D M3
3.  Level indicator inside the view finder
4.  Ability to set AEB bracketing to shutter speed when in manual mode.  Currently on the 1DX, it uses which ever control is on the main (front of the camera but the shutter button)
5a.  Intelligent shutter button - 3 levels of pressure - single shot, slow speed, high speed
5b.  Intelligent shutter button - 2 buttons side by side.  One for single shot, one for multiple shot
5c.  Intelligent shutter button - first 0.167 of a second is single shot, then drops in the high speed unless I push hard in which case it drops in the multiple shot mode immediately
6. Something that lets me flag 1st and last shot of a series such as HDR or pan.  LR has poor tools for creating stacks
7. Builtin GPS
8. Optional adapter to Nikon and Zeiss glass to allow them to function in fully automatic mode (no chance of this but would be nice)
9. Metering capability that would expose the scene to get no part of the image blown out, perhaps limited to 5% or 10% (user controlled for specular highlights).
10.  Automatic focus stacking mode.  I specify near and far and the camera steps the focus between them.  Ideally this process should be done on a rail to avoid focus blooming.

Thanks is my ideas.  If Canon would like to compensation for my participation in this focus group, ...

I think that Lexar increased the speed of their 1000 X cards to match the new Sandisk Extreme Pro cards.

Software & Accessories / Re: need help choosing the right macbook.
« on: March 01, 2014, 04:50:12 PM »
Hi im looking for advice on choosing a new MacBook. I am looking into the MacBook pro 13" with retina
•2.4GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5, Turbo Boost up to 2.9GHz
•8GB 1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM
•256GB PCIe-based Flash Storage
 but the apple worker is telling me if I want to run adobe lightroom and photoshop I will need to get the 16gb.
so im stuck in deciding what to get I also have a budget. so I don't know if I should just stick to the one I was going to get or go with a MacBook pro that doesn't have retina and add more storage. if you have any advice id appreciate it thank you.

I have a similar configuration, though 512 SSD.  I run PS and LR without a problem - though my PS images are not enlarged (work at original pixel size of 1Dx and 5DM3).

I debated about adding faster processor, more RAM and larger SSD but in the end decided that they were not worth the extra cost.

Hope this helps.

I bought 1Dx on eBay and have not had any problems with the Camera or Canon

There is a 100% chance that the 7dII will or will not possibly be released in the 2nd,3rd, or 4th quarter, depending of course on weather conditions and the alignment of the planets. If not, maybe or maybe not, 2015 will possibly see the release of the 7dIII, skipping over the 7dII. Depending on how many rumors there are, of course. CR 0.75. Maybe.

I think you would do well as a weather forecaster

perhaps they could add memory to the 1Dx.  So I could have a 200 shoot buffer in raw  ;D

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: HELP - strange 1Dx AEB behaviour
« on: February 16, 2014, 04:41:46 PM »
I like to set M mode so that the main dial is aperture and the quick dial is shutter speed (similar to AV mode)

So do I.  But I've always shot bracketed shots in Av.

Mostly shot HDRs in Av except if I plan to stitch them to make a pan

I can confirm that happens with my 1D X as well.  I really can't think of a time I'd want variable DoF in a bracketed set of images, though...   ???

Agree.     Nice to have option but I would like to have it set on the menu.   I like to set M mode so that the main dial is aperture and the quick dial is shutter speed (similar to AV mode)

RGF, good to know.

When you say "main dial", are you referring to the dial near the shutter release?

Yes.  That is what canon calls it

I got a reply back from CPS and they said the behavior is normal.  That AEB adjusts whatever is on the main dial (!)

Lots of information I found on the web contradicts this - so beware, bad information is all too common.
