5D MK III Sample Images / Re: 5D MK III Images
« on: May 31, 2013, 02:22:46 PM »
Greetings Everyone!

I'm happy to report brand new 5D3 freed from it's box!   :)

Here are some first few shots from a small local AirFest last saturday when coupled with 100-400L:









It was dark, cloudy and rainy day and my old 7D has always captured very noisy
and flat images in such conditions.
But I'm most pleased with the images from my new 5D3!  :)
Waited for it long time...   :)

Regards!
Leszek
Awesome Leszek!  Great job, enjoy your new camera, it's a winner! :D

5d3 autofocus was pretty good....these ducks flew right over my head (I was on a bridge) and they were going quite fast.   

it was very early morning and the sun had recently risen and was behind me, so it was low enough in the sky to light up the underside of the ducks as they rose to get up over the bridge.   

in hindsight....i should've shot at 1/1000 or a little faster as it appears i have some motion blur....but not bad.

iso 250

Great image Northstar!  Right place, right time, for sure!  That's a sweet one!

The Howgill Fells in Cumbria, England, taken just as the sun rose.

These fells lie between the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales National Parks. Taken with 5D mk2 and 24-105 @40mm, 125th / f8
Absolutely gorgeous my friend... Well done!

New Baby, just received today, not as pretty as Bornshooters Models, but arguably less trouble.

Shot with 1Dx
Congratulations Eml!  I think it makes lots of us wish we had a new baby! ::)

I love the 4th image ejenner!  Exquisite!
I guess this thread has developed from a 'portrait only' to include BIF.  I'm stoked to be able to contribute, up until now 95% of my shots have been in the Denver Zoo, but this month I got a 7D primarily for shooting kids sports.

It may be the most expensive $850 I've ever spent because the 70-200 f4 IS is the longest lens I have.  The last 3 were with a 1.4TC.

First one was taken a couple of years ago from a bedroom window.  The others recently at Ferril lake in Downtown Denver. 

#1.  hawk?  sorry my expertise is still minimal (EDIT: just found a picture, I think it might be a Young-ish Cooper's Hawk).   T1i, 70-200 f4 IS @ 200mm f4 1/30s ISO400 (got lots of blurry shots)
#2 BCN Heron. 7D 70-200 f4 IS + 1.4TC I @ 280mm f5.6 1/6400s ISO:800
#3 American White Pelican  f5.6 1/2500s ISO:400
#4 Snowy Egrets jostling for the prime spot, f5.6 1/1000s ISO:800 (probably had a polarizer on)

Still trying to figure out the best combination of shutter speed and ISO for BIF shots, but tending towards ISO:800 because with NR the noise is manageable and my tracking needs work.

A common turn taken with a 500f4 mk2 at speed and its pin sharp. All afternoon for a couple of shots.
Nice job Mick!  Great capture...

Nice image Islander!  Are you from the Cape, Nantucket or the Vineyard?

However, i'm about to buy a new FF camera exclusively for weddings and i wonder if the 6D is best value for money over the overpriced and noisy 5D3. (i mean that camera completely failed me when i compared it with 5D 2. They walk side by side until ISO 12.800 of course in RAW mode)

The 5DII image quality was (and remains) excellent.  The 5DIII fixes pretty much everything else that was 'wrong' with the 5DII...notably the AF system. 

I'd pick the 5DIII over the 6D in a heartbeat for any situation with moving subjects.

Agreed.  5d2 was good but you couldn't AF to save your life in a crutch situation.  6d is good for extreme low light detail photos, but 5d3 is better in just about everything else...
Absolutely agree!  I recall reading several articles, even on CR before I got mine, stating emphatically that the 5D Mk III was a wedding photographers perfect tool... It's an excellent choice.  And I agree with others regarding the AF, it's really second to none in the sub $3,000 price bracket for Canon bodies...  :)

There are several ...  the one you're thinking of is probably:  proverbs 21:2.   "every man's way is right in his own eyes..."

and thanks Jrista for the great clarification re:  color noise and moire and the AA filter.
Yes, that's the one!  Thank you Dlleno! ;D

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Rear AF button
« on: May 28, 2013, 11:05:41 AM »
The only flip side is if I have to give my camera to someone for taking a one of photo of me in a group photo. I have to explain to him/her how to "differently" operate my camera than he/she normally does his/her point and shoot.

Green square mode overrides the back button AF setting so a half-press of the shutter will AF like people are expecting. If the camera is set to shoot in RAW, it still does.  So unless you have a 1-series body, there's an easy fix for that.
Indeed.  Green square mode is often the safest bet when in that rare instance I turn my camera over to someone else's hands! 

They are often intimidated by the size of a larger camera like the 7D, 5D series or 1D series, especially if the former are gripped.  Turning it into an overgrown point & shoot for them seems to quell their trepidation...  ;)
