Their color checker passport software is terrible on the mac.

Okay, so now we're just making stuff up and printing it?

Fine, me too:
The EOS Me is named as such because it's actually runs on windows Me.  Microsoft is going to run Nikon off the road like they did with the iPod . . . and the iPad/Android Tablets . . . and phones.

And puppies, free puppies for every camera buyer.

Hey this is easy, let's all get together and publish this stuff!

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D Mark II Spec List [CR2]
« on: February 19, 2013, 08:39:30 AM »
The spec list make the 5D3 look "inferior"…other than the sensor…
And this makes the 6D look pointless..
Isn't the smaller the number the higher end the camera?
These are features that should've been in their flagship FF cameras from day 1.

Compare the 7D and 5DmkII

I already like Canon Rumors and I don't need Facebook to prove that, beside I do not like using FB

Maybe if everyone un-friends facebook, it'll just go away.  ;D

I'm pretty sure that THIS is how the trolls got in to start with.  Uninvited as a frequent reader.

Dang, for a second there I confused price drop with a reasonable price.

What would YOU call a reasonable price?  Are there other high-res laptops selling for less?

Maybe you meant the air:
$912 Core i5 1.70GHz 4GB RAM 64GB Storage (flash)
Samsung . . . closest thing I could find is $849.99 NP540U3C-A01UB, but it does have a spinning disk drive . . . $800 on sale . .  oh hey, it has Windows 8, so you have to install Linux Mint yourself  ;D

Now you are being irrational and commenting for the sake of being argumentative without being logical ... why would people want to read about Pope's resignation on Canon  rumors?
However, computers are very much a part of digital photography ... hence the need to know about any good offers out there.

Aw crap, now I'm curious whether the Pope is a Canon or Nikon guy, sadly, google didn't help :(

There are several threads on this forum started asking about gear and laptops.  Saying this isn't pertinent while providing snarky comments isn't really contributing to even the forum . . . let alone the main page.

Let's just shutter the site since you weren't currently in the market for this particular item.

Of note: apple this morning released the refreshed processors and has cut the (MSRP) prices on some of the laptops

I'm not saying this is at all a bad deal, just explaining the deeper discount; when the previous models sell out, they're usually gone quickly.

Also, applecare on laptops is *really* worth it, and it 'stays with the computer' so if you like to flip your laptops every year or two because you want the newer model before price drop, you can market your old one as 'under warranty'.

Canon General / Re: What's your definition of "Pro"?
« on: February 11, 2013, 12:16:11 PM »
*MY* definition of a "Professional Photographer" is someone who's primary business is taking photographs.

Now, that is a phrase I'll never use, because it's misleading (and why you asked the question).  There are many people in business that do only one thing, but unpaid 'amateurs' can do better (car repair comes to mind).

I prefer to categorize photographers by their skills and knowledge . . .

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Confirms 70D; Future of Semi-Pro DSLR is FF

First, the corporate portrait. That is as perfect a headshot as I've ever seen -- and exactly the kind of perfection I'd expect to see from Canon. Imagine being the photographer charged with doing their management headshots!
I downloaded the file and notice that all the metadata was stripped from the photo.

I wonder what camera was used to take it?
Nokia cell phone

So, if it was the lumia, it was totally shopped? ;D

Personally, Canon...if you are listening....Keep semi-pro APS-C.  I'll buy a high quality 7DII as soon as it is available for pre-order.

Even if it's just the same old 7D with built-in GPS, WiFi, new CPU and extra SD slot?

DigicV+ and tight/wide MFA?


Everything else is just gravy.

Software & Accessories / Re: Starting to work with RAW. Help?
« on: January 25, 2013, 08:33:46 AM »
I started out with Aperture (suffers from the same problem all Apple software does: they like to hide things in non-intuitive places or exclude it altogether because 'no one uses that').

Moved to LightRoom3 when I got a deal on it and haven't gone back since.

Workflow for me generally is:
1) Lens correction
2) If color temp needs changing for the whole set, figure out what makes the most sense and apply it (by hand) to each photo - I'm sure there's a better way to do that . . . exposure the same
If necessary:
3) Straighten and crop
4) adjust the better ones slightly with noise reduction - play with the highlights and shadows if you have any issues (bright sunlight with dark shadows etc)

All and all, if you're working on a batch and you've got any OCD issues (I think we may all have a bit) limit yourself before hand by time.  My rule is 1 minute per shot, 3-5 if it's going to be bigger than a 5x7

One option the 6D & Mk3 have is Tight AND Wide MFA - a great feature for dialing in Zooms, vs primes.

"I'm switching to Nikon" doesn't even have that :)

PowerShot / Re: Advice on P&S

I agree with neuro; I had an SX10 IS and that was the bug that bit me to go to DSLR.

I got much better shots than any other camera I'd had before, and it still works to 'just take pictures'.
