1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx

Amazing shot, eml58. I am not sure if it is just me, but I would much prefer it with the top chopped off, so the leopard is in the top right of the pic.

Hi Expat, your right, I was a bit stuck on what to do with this Image, I tried framing the green with the Tree Trunks, would have liked to get closer to the Lady, but she was one of the young shy ones, still getting used to the vehicles & immediately after this Image she came real fast down from the tree, because it was early morning I'de set my Shutter Speed at 1/80th, Dumb thing to do with a Leopard in a Tree (actually slightly dumb at anytime with any Animal), I fluffed everyone of those shots unfortunately.

This was Pre my 200-400, getting the 400 off & fitting the 1.4x was & still is a PIA, the 200-400 makes it that much easier to frame & get that little bit more reach, still, I do miss that 400 @ f/2.8 at times.

Menace, Dylan, Click, Northstar, appreciate your comments, Thanks Guys.

Eldar, I've tried the Landscape thing, enjoyable at times definitely, but I see so many Posters here on CR that do it so much better, I even try the Portrait thing as well, again, same thing applies, enjoyable, but, People can be at times, difficult ?

But Big Cats in Africa ?, 0600 with an early morning mist and the Sun just peeping through the Green of the Trees ?? that's just about as good as it gets in this Life, with or without a Camera in your hands.

Beautiful eyes. It seems that the leopard is trying to seduce him. Is it a female? :-*

Hi ajfotofilmagem, Yes it's a Female, and there's not much not to love about a Leopard, but the eyes on these Cats are just extraordinarily Beautiful, this one had a slight green tinge to the eyes.

I don't think she was feeling too amorous, a few seconds after I captured this Image she spent about 20 minutes licking her backside, I have a few of those Images as well (all Photographers seem to be Voyuers), but thought the CR Guy might implement some 'R' classification on the Images.

Couple of shots inside Peter's Church in Rome. Both shot with the 17-40.

Just behind St.Peter's grave, what an astonishing place...

An awesome statue inside the church.


Nice Viggo, agree with Eldar, this is one area where the TSE17 just does it, only problem being Tripods, when I was last here the order of the day was no tripods or monopods & no flash, so the TSE becomes less of an issue, not the best Lens for Hand Held Images.

You did a very good job here considering you only had f4 to work with, well done.

Lenses / Re: Waiting for the 35 1.4L II
« on: May 11, 2014, 11:25:22 PM »
I have & use both the Canon 35f/1.4 L & The Sigma 35f/1.4 Art, both are very good Lenses, albeit I find for different reasons.

AF on the 35L is faster than the 35 Art, Bokeh on the 35L is creamier than the 35 Art, but, the 35 Art is sharper than the 35L, 35 Art is cheaper than the 35L and you can place a very large bet to win on the 35L II, when it finally arrives, will be a Looooot more expensive than either the 35L or the 35 Art.

The 35 L & 35 Art are both available now, the 35f/1.4 L II, well, going on Canon's release of new and innovative products over the last couple years, you may well be waiting some time yet.

Suggestions here to perhaps try & buy the 35f/2 IS seem good advice as well, cheaper, almost as fast, possibly almost as sharp as either the 35L or the 35Art, but that's a guess as I've never used the 35f/2 IS.

Finally fitted & Tried the Ec Screen in one of my 1Dx Bodies.

Very Good, works an absolute treat, I can with the Ec Screen now critically focus in viewfinder as well as Zoomed Live View.

But, unfortunately, this is only useful in good lighting, dim lighting & your back to the Live View Mode for focus.

Takes 2 Minutes to carefully swap out the screens, so not a big issue if your in a clean environment, change screens, head out do your Images. Wouldn't want to try & change screens in Rain/Snow or dusty conditions, helps to have 2 Bodies.

Damn shame the 5DMK III has been design changed not to accept these screens, real oversight on the part of Canon.

What ever you do, Do NOT Download the RRS 2014 Catalogue.
You are not helping, eml ;)

I know, Eldar sent me an email with a link to the Pentax 645z, it also said, "don't go here", took me a nano second to go there, then decide I probably absolutely need one of these   ::)
