EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Convince me to shoot in RAW
« on: November 10, 2012, 02:23:01 AM »
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?

I have been itching for this lens for a long time.  Please don't post awesome samples, it will push me over the edge!

When i want to work with an image I open it in DPP, make some changes there, the use the "transfer to Photoshop" command.  It does not save the file in any particular format, the file just opens in photoshop as a 16 bit image.  From there i will always save in Photoshop's native .psd format.

My settings are :

AF tracking : Case4 - for subjects that accelerate ou decelerate quickly
ISO auto
Priority speed 1/5000 s.

Cool what ISO was the camera choosing on these mages?  I'm sure it varied, but what was typical.

I have an airshow coming up and plan to shoot with a 5D III and 400mm f2.8 IS, plus teleconverters maybe.

Lenses / Re: Your technique for switching lenses in the field?
« on: October 28, 2012, 01:37:16 AM »
It's important to remember, your sensor probably had scmuck on it when you purchased it.  Even if you never change lenses it will add more scmuck over time.  You lenses are not air tight, and neither is the camera.  The lenses grow and shrink as they focus, much more as they zoom.  This sucks more air in and out, brining in fresh air and squirting it around in front of the sensor.  As the mechanical parts of the shutter rub against each other, they shed little pieces and create tier own scmuck.

Feel better?

Very nice!  What camera settings were you using?

Lenses / Re: Bring 120-300 OS or buy 55-250mm ?

Unless you are going specifically to shoot nature or sports, i would not take the big sig. 

I would pick up a Canon 70-200 f4.  New or used, with or without IS, get the one you can afford.  A friend of mine just bought a used 70-200 f4 for $300, he is really happy with it.

1. Remove current lens.
2. Add new lens.
3. (maybe) remember that I should have turned the camera off,... turn off and on just run sensor cleaner.

Canon EF Prime Lenses / Re: Canon 400 f/2.8 IS
« on: October 23, 2012, 10:34:36 PM »
I had a chance to shoot pro surfing.  Was pretty fun.  i had the biggest lens on the beach, including the press, untill a guy showed up with a 600m f4.  But I had a 1.4X and 2X extender, so i like to think i still won.

Lenses / Re: New 50mm f/1.4 lenses are metal throughout?
« on: October 22, 2012, 08:39:18 PM »
Thanks for the info!  I'm glad to know I wasn't crazy for doubting the existence of a new, all-metal 50. (Though it'd be great if Canon would make one!)


If Canon made an all metal one, I'd get it in a heartbeat!

If they can make one without glass, I will buy one too.  :)

As this lens was introduced in June 1993, it seems a bit much to call it new.

If your income is tied to your photography, you need to have 2 bodies.  You like the 5D II, keep it. 

Your lens choices sound great.

EOS Bodies / Re: do crop sensors really add reach?
« on: October 19, 2012, 11:38:31 PM »
Is the crop 7D going to have more reach? Yes of course.  But of course you can just crop the FF image for more reach also.

is the 7D going to yield more pixels vs. the cropped 5D/ yes of Course 

Is it going to yield more detail? Depends if the lens is sharp enough. And the 100-400 is not known for sharpness at 400. So maybe not.

On my 400mm f2.8 IS I, my 7D has way more reach and detail than my 5D II (now III)


My 100-400 is excellent at 400, wide open.  And coupled with my 5D3, the images are much nicer than what came out of my 50D.  I attribute a good part of that to the AF of the 5D3.

So to the OP, you have an excellent lens lineup.  I think good AF is a major factor for wildlife.  I'd go with either a 7D or 5D3 for the AF... or 1D4, 1DX if you can afford such.  If you go full frame, replace the 10-22 with a 17-40 unless you need the extra stop of the 16-35.

I'm sure your 100-400 is great. I used one before and it's a really nice lens.  It's an excellent lens for what it costs.  But if you are not seeing more detail from significantly higher pixel density, either one camera is focusing incorrectly, or you reached the lens's ability to resolve detail with the lower density camera.  I don't have a 50D and can't speak to it's focusing ability, but it does not not have the ability to tweek focus, your 5DIII does. Correcton, the 50D does have focus adjust.  Did you use it?

The 100-400 does not compare well with prime lenses in the same focal lengths
