EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Max Print Size for Landscapes
« on: November 10, 2012, 10:05:31 AM »
I print on a regular basis 22 X 33 on my Epson 7890 from raw captures from the 1D X and 5D Mark III. That is if the image is exceedingly sharp. I do my normal processing in Lightroom 4.2 and hand off to Photoshop CS 6 and resize using Alien Skin Blow Up 3. I resize at a resolution of 360 DPI which is half the native resolution of the printer.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Convince me to shoot in RAW

I didn't see any mention of Michael Tapes' "Instant JPEG from Raw". It's a free download for Mac and Windows.

Just shoot in raw only like you always should. If you need JPGs just right click on the folder and IJFR will extract the full size JPG that is embedded in the raw file. It gives you the best of both worlds. You're already shooting a JPG anyway, why save it again as another file on your memory card? And, when you get that once in a lifetime shot you've got the raw file to work from.

Myself, it is so easy to configure presets in the Library > Export module of Lightroom that it really isn't necessary. My opinion of JPGs, I only use them for E-mailing and display of my portfolio on my iPad. I guess I do put up a few here on this website!!!

Here's a shot from yesterday. Bear Cub in Cottonwood Tree: 1D X, 500mm L II, ISO 1600, f8 @ 1/250 sec.

Very cute! Where is Momma Bear? I don't understand why you don't have gnaw marks on your ankles with all these cub shots!  ;)

Have you been around them so much they accept you?

Several friends and I have been following them since the end of September. And yes, you still have to be aware of where mom is.

And, sometimes if you are lucky you run into one of theses: This was a total grab shot. The camera was set at ISO 3200 expecting to find the bear cubs back in the shadows. We came around corner and found this big male Coyote. I barley had time to set the tripod legs and got off a few frames. 1D X, 500mm L II, ISO 3200, f6.3 @ 1/2500 sec.

Only one: The 200-400mm f4 zoom. I love my 500, but I miss a lot of shots because I can't back off.

Have you tried a focusing rail?  That would probably solve your issue, as long as it's a big one, like the kind they use for trains.  :o

Maybe what Canon needs to make is a 0.7 X Extender? That would certainly be easier to carry!!! And, I'd gain a full stop at full aperture. :)

I live in Nevada, just south of Carson City.

Those particular horses are "just down the road" to the east of me in the Pine Nut Mountains, about 10 minutes from my house. The shot of the colt nursing is looking west and the mountains in the background are the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

The bear cub is from Lake Tahoe on the California side which is about 40 minutes away.

As I recall my first "real" camera was purchased when I was around 19 years old. I probably had a Kodak Intstamatic before that. Remember flash cubes? I guess from that you can guess my age.
