Software & Accessories / Re: Field printer for 5D3?

Would a Selphy work?

I looked into truly portable printers a while ago for printing documents, and the choices were very limited. Pretty much the Panasonic Pocket Jet and a portable HP inkjet were it.

Both require a computer, but the addition of WiFi and Bluetooth in these portable printers could make a difference, if your phone or tablet device can communucate with the camera and the printer. My phone can print, but very few printers will work with it.

I've never looked into printing directly from the camera.

No shortage of these :)

It's still not working.... these are previous photos of the moon.... one with a 60D, the other with an iPad. What should I be doing to get the iPad photo as good as the 60D photo. Since camera does not matter, I must be doing something wrong, but I can't figure it out.... I tried to get closer to the moon, but I can only reach so high...

Obviously, the second photo is a close up of the bright spots in the first photo. The iPad is too close.

It is amazing how much cool stuff is out there...  :)

I attempted to install an Intel SSD in a HP tx2000 series laptop, and it didn't work.

The OS would boot and then it would lock up. When it did work, boy it was quick.

After consulting with Intel tech support, they determined that something in the BIOS would not allow the SSD to function and I returned it. There were no available updates.

According to manufacturer specs, the SSD was backwards compatible and I had a SATA HDD.

I guess the moral of the story is there are some instances where the latest hardware won't work on "old" computers.   

Software & Accessories / Re: Ballhead for a RRS TVC33

I have the BH-55 on my TVC-33, it's a great head.  Easily holds my 1D X and any lens (including my 600/4 II, although I use a PG-02 LLR gimbal for that). 

FWIW, it wasn't the last tripod I'll ever buy.  ;)  After getting that, I later got a RRS TQC-14 and BH-30 for travel.  But now I'm set.

What influenced the TVC-33 choice and would you choose it over a TVC-34L?

3 section vs 4 section (and the ~10" height difference) is the only apparent difference between these models.

I've been doing plenty of reading across the web on tripods, and the 3 section vs 4 section discussion and stability reduction frequently comes up, along with center columns and stability reduction.

The RRS product seems to be very top notch in quality and price, so are those stability concerns mentioned applicable?

I would rather have the 10" of extra available height.

I know I'm loosing LOTS of sharpness when I
use DPP to convert from CR2 to JPEG.   

This caught my eye.

Is there truth to this?

To the OP:

Many seem to separate the 5D and 6D line on action photos.

I have found that it isn't just the AF performance, it is the number of focus points that are usable outside of center.

Nothing wrong with the 5DII, but using anything outside of center is hit or miss, moreso at wider apertures.

I do not have experience with the 6D, but it still has fewer points than the 5DIII. The 6D supposedly has a very good center point, but how good are the outer ones?

Focus + recompose does not work all of the time and I do not like being limited to the center point only. I also have a difficult time focusing manually through the viewfinder unless I have a lot of time, so working AF is important to me.

I have found that a 5DIII + 600EX-Rt works better than a 5DII + 580EXII or a 5DIII + 580EXII. Don't know what it is, whether it is something in the flash (electronics/power) or metering in camera or the 5DIII AF system providing better info.

In short, I have seen a significant improvement in my "one shot" pictures with the latest Canon tech. Someday, I'll figure out the rest of it.

You don't have to be a pro or shoot action to benefit from the 5DIII if your budget allows.

Video- haven't messed with it.

WiFi- haven't had the need to tether, but I can see how that feature could be useful.

I wish it was 14mm instead of 16mm. Kind of a deal breaker for me.

I'd preorder it if it was 12mm.

Nah, Canon probably wants you to chew on the lens when not shooting to improve on your dental health!  :P

After buying one of these 37.5x superzooms, I'll probably have nothing else to eat.

What is a fluoride element? Weight savings?

I'll admit to using a small fraction of the capabilities of the 600EX-RT, but I can say that what I use hits the mark more often than the 580EXII.

I don't know if it is the extra power or something in the metering, but I have noticed a difference for the better.
