Unless you have no way to convert it in post, no it is not worth doing directly.  Shooting in color gives you options when you convert to black and white.

Lenses / Re: Best Lens for photographing children
« on: November 18, 2012, 09:30:56 PM »
From day care to 2nd grade my favorite FF kids lens has been my 24-105mm zoom. Wide enough to get the whole class at Halloween, but still get in tight on my little monster. IS helps indoors.  Of course the 70-200mm is important for sports, school play etc, but when mixing it up, I need the versatility of the zoom. 

I had an 85mm f1.2 for a while, and I don't think I ever got 1 sharp photo of a child.  The kids just move too fast.

The 17mm Tilt shift is an amazing lens, I love mine, but it is also large and heavy.  Something to consider.  What about a 8-15mm Fisheye, small light and and cheap by comparison, and much wider. 

I am looking at a 12-24 mm Sigma II myself.  Super Duper Wide, zoomable, and no fisheye effect...

Go n get the genuine ones... N never look back

I've tried this, but how do you parallel park?

Back when 5D II batteries were $100+ and 3rd party batteries (who is the 2nd party?) were terrible, I bought a 7D for 3 reasons.  Back-up body, Sports body, AND 2nd factory battery with factory charger.  3 years later, the 5D2 has been replaced with a 5D3, but I have never run out of battery. How does this help you?  I don't know.

Software & Accessories / Re: Do It Yourself Black Rapid type Strap
« on: November 17, 2012, 09:40:53 PM »
Great ingenuity, and it looks like a good strap.  I think I might spring for a real Black Rapid tripod mount thingy, or similar as they pivot and will not unscrew, but for do it yourself, that is really nice.

All my cameras/lenses with tripod rings have Arca Swiss plates, so I made my self a strap with an arca Swiss clamp at the end. Well, I started with a cheap eBay version of the black Rapid, so I didn't really make it, but it works for me.

17mm Tilt Shift is worth considering. Awesome lens, nothing out there to match it.

Why do you need this?  I thought it was cool and got it for my 5D III, and it gave me "error 80"s about 1 out every 50 shots.

But again, why?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Convince me to shoot in RAW
« on: November 11, 2012, 11:38:35 PM »
... I am so sick of hearing about RAW. 

....

Talk to one of my favorite photographers at the Arizona Republic and he'll tell you why he shoots raw and not jpg.  No other way than raw.

When I talk to other photographers I talk about photography, not about thier file choice.
:) good use of time!

Shooting raw or jpeg doesn't really matter.  If that's what you want then go ahead but I'm shooting in raw.  Each to his own...  I just want to have more headroom in case I make a mistake because I know I'm not perfect but I aspire for a near perfect photograph.

(In traditional internet forum style, I will take a contrary position but then paraphrase your statement) I completely disagree.  I think the photography is much more important than the file format.  I shoot RAW because I find the end product is better, but it is a small part of the big picture.  Bla, Bla, bla.... RAW is life... Bla

Actually I am just going for the record on embedded quotes.  It's like getting the last word in on a fight with your wife.

I haven't been able to get it to work.

Does anyone know why Eye-Fi does not make a CF card?
Generally, eye-fi cards were not intended for pro photographers doing large RAW file downloads.  The Wi-Fi connection is very slow, and very frustrating if you have large files to download.
CF Cards are now only being used for a few high end cameras, and as time goes on, we see fewer uses.  Sales for CF would be pretty low, compared to the development cost.

Exactly, and many CF card cameras now have a second slot for SD.

Those bastards!  How dare they make one post and are now "gone".  Better that they spam the hell out of us!...?

They did not start this thread, they just stepped in an provided some information.  Jeez, so far I really like these guys.

Jesus, convince yourself.  I am so sick of hearing about RAW.  It's better for most things, you are retarded if you don't shoot RAW... Unless it's sports, or journalism and you need the jpgs in a hurry. or something. 

I do not understand why people need their hand held on this. Or alternatively need to wear it on a T-shirt.  Who cares!  What if everything was this way?  Should I use good lenses or bad... which is better?  Focus well or not? which to choose?
