1st = 300L, 2nd = 300L + 2xTC, 3rd = 400L, 4th = Tammy 600mm, 5th = 400L + 2xTC etc etc, yada yada yada
The other thing you have to remember is the big whites do not depreciate, and can be an investment, third party lenses are generally cheap to buy on the second hand market. Another reason to look at the big white's.
But, you can open your 1DX RAW files in LR3 if you first convert them to the lossless RAW DNG format via Adobe free and totally supported program DNG Convertor.
Eml58...I gather you were referring to my earlier post, regarding Lightroom not supporting the 1DX. I am using a PC based system, and I cannot open the raw files in Lightroom3...I was told by Adobe that I would have to upgrade to Lightoom4. Is that correct??
Also, I would be very interested in viewing yours as well as Mackguyver's workflow.
Seriously though, I haven't found a decent work flow on Mac. I had a crappy but functional workflow, but Mavericks made that impossible. Now I'm left with a painful procedure.
And now Dylan a tough question. Actually a very tough one: Does your wife know? Does she even know about this poll?
If the size and color is same as my 400mm f2.8 IS II, she couldn't tell the diff. That why I ruled out Tamron
24/70 2.8 @ 7.1
great grandson came over to visit so I had to get the camera out for a few fast ones
I think the prize winning photo you refer to is the one above. Now better understand the combination of factors that led to the accident. I thought about how it was dangerous for the "runners", but now I think it is even more dangerous to unsuspecting photographers. It is ironic that poisonous snakes and lions kill fewer photographers that hippos "cute". Should I put the bulls on my list of danger from now.
Be able to visit places you mentioned above would be a dream come true for me - maybe one day when the kids grow up a little bit more.
I live in California, 10min -15mins away from Huntington Beach. It's very well known place for surfing. The summer here is quite special. Be able to capture the pro surfers will be interesting in my photography collection.
Sigma 50-500 or a plain Canon, which one would they take?
Great pictures EML. But one thing I do not understand. The guy who had crushed D4 and 800mm was so close to the bulls, and could fit even two huge animals in the camera viewfinder, or he attempted a portrait "head and shoulders" of the animal and did not realize the actual distance? Should he have used a 1200mm?
Stunning images Edward! The speed, sound, splash, mud and excitement can really be felt.
Poor Chinese though. But I suppose, when you provoke the bulls with a Nikon rig, you only have yourself to blame ...
However, given how I sometimes worry about my gear, shooting with expensive stuff like 1Dx & 200-400f/4, D4 & 800f/5.6... in Sumatran mud and water, with bulls running around... must be an adrenaline sport on its own
Superb ! I love the subtle colours you're getting.
