EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Is ff metering more aggressive than crop?
« on: October 07, 2013, 02:54:07 PM »
I got the same feeling from the 5DIII. I don't shoot in evaluative any more.
It's the same on the 1DX, which has af linked spot metering.
I think that's the only real advantage the d800 actually has over the 5dIII, personally

Great concert shots Elliot. Heat, sound and energy is pouring out of them. I especially like No.1 & 3.
Many thanks Eldar.
My favourite is #2. I think catching them screaming and running around is the easy (ish) part. It's the in between moments of emotion that really catch my heart and eye.
I still have no idea how to mount a 600 to a gimbal >.>

Depending on the length of the exposure, just pop the flash more times

I'm game for this, especially if they can do a sharp wide open and fast AF

Reviews / Re: Review - Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 Di VC USD with Pictures
« on: October 05, 2013, 08:01:10 PM »
I finally have my thoughts to chime in.
I like this lens, though have to say I won't be using it for probably 70% of my work. Why?
I shoot lots of gigs. Often the light is bad at best,  but when I broke out my tamron 24-70 VC I found it could not focus in poor light. It was probably -1EV, but even with the AF assist lamp it was returning drastically OOF images, while acknowledging accurate focus.

The 50 1.4, 85 1.8, sigma 35 1.4 and the Canon 24-70 2.8 I&II all focused like champions in the same conditions even in servo with no assistance

So, in a bizzare turn of events, I find myself unable to use a standard lens designed for low light work in a low light environment. I guess I'll be using it for weddings, portrait shoots etc, but it'll be staying in the gear cupboard for gigs. Which is a shame, really....

EOS Bodies / Re: 1DX Battery Drain?

I get this aswell.
I could be wrong, but I'm imagining the larger sensor, dual digic 5+, metering digic and higher bandwidth readouts all consume more power.
Also, I can't find an auto screen dimmer. Your screen may be running brighter than it would have been otherwise.

Ewinter:  thanks for the comments, I haven't used the spot metering linked to AF point yet as I shoot in M mode most of the time.
Serendipity:  thanks for the comments
eml58:  Thanks for the comments, I'm currently debating if I should sell off my 1D4 or not.  I also need to sell off my 7D and 5D2 as I never touch them anymore.  I may keep the 1D4 to take it on future trips where I may need a rugged backup alongside the 1DX.  Otherwise, I would be happy with the 1DX/5D3 combo.

Here are a couple more recent shots from Wednesday:
I wish I got the time to shoot in manual more! Have you used the 12fps yet though? It's beautiful. The 1DX is incredible

I converted one of my 5DMK II Bodies to Infra Red Sensor, something that I want to spend some time on when I get some time.

The ability to switch from one shot to 12fps with a single button on the 1Dx is a major plus for me, especially with wildlife where the situation can change so quickly.

The other thing I like so much with the 1Dx (also 5DMK III) is the C1-3 set up, basically you can set the Camera up in 3 totally different ways and then with a single Menu command, change from Wildlife shutter speed 12fps etc, to Landscape Aperture priority single shot, love this feature.

I shoot 100% Manual though, both Above and Under water Imaging.
I've got my custom menus set to cycle with the mfn button. Whole different set up at the push of a button

The ability to set a button to jump RIGHT into flash settings.
I can't believe there isn't even the option in the custom functions. You have to jump through like 5 menus to get to the right flash options.

I'd like a high MPix 1 series body for landscape and portrait but you can prise my 1DX from my cold dead hands for what I use it for, 18 MPix is enough, and I don't want to deal with anything over 20 megapixels when I'm shooting over 1000 images a night and have to pp them next day.

ISO 16,000 isn't a comfort zone, but when needs must...

It was the strangest thing, using a 25 year old 50mm 1.8 on a week old 1DX  :o
