Another Cheetah Shot, late afternoon Light, just finished eating a Kill, Thompson's Gazelle, ate the thing to almost nothing in about 30 Minutes, Cheetahs eat fast, always in mind that Leopards, Hyenas and Lions will easily push them off a Kill.

Hi Paul, have a look here, might shed some light for you, I hope, seems like it works on FCP7, I upgraded my MacPro & MacBook Pro to Mavericks, FCP X, CS6, CC, Nik/On One etc all working fine, Epson Drivers all good.

Have a look here if you haven't already, & good luck.

Katmai, August 2014...MK IV 200-400 at 560

Very good job with these!  Do any of you feel the urge to dry the bears off with a towel?  Something makes me want to do that...glad I'm not trying it though!

Ha Ha !! Good one, answer ?? no, not really, I think Bears in the Wild are the reason Canon makes an 800f/5.6 Lens.

Below is my plan for 2014.

That is a serious endeavour at Planning, I salute you Sir, I generally buy by default something I like, but this planned spread has me re thinking how serious I should take my NGAS, well done Dylan777.

On your Zeiss WA, I purchased last year the Zeiss Distagon T 2.8/15, this is a truly supreme Lens, I have yet to put it into my Underwater Housing on the 5DMK III, but it totally blows away my 8-15 @ 15 which is my current go to WA lens for underwater photography, you give up Auto Focus, but that hasn't been an issue for me to date, price, like all Zeiss Lenses is a killer, but you do get what you pay for with these Lenses.

I've ordered the Zeiss Otus 55 1.4/55 as well, intend using this on the 1Dx to replace the Canon 50 1.2 L II.

The a7r, if it lives up to expectations, will hopefully become the walk around/general Body, I'll also be keen to see if I can get it into an Underwater housing, with the Zeiss 15 & 35 it should work excellent, just need a good Macro Lens for it, Hmmmmm.....

I would add on the Zeiss 15, the reason I've not put it into the Underwater Housing, is the really PIA Hood attachment, completely boneheaded idea on an otherwise remarkable Lens, getting the Hood off, is doable, but a bit scary and not for the feint hearted, unfortunately the Hood Petals protrude far enough they come up against the Glass on the WA Port of my Housing set up, bummer.

Hi Sanj.

Not really a smile, but getting there, I was out of the vehicle when I took this, got back in pretty quick, but after I took the shot.

Awesome eml58 ;D
 
I would add 35mm as well if my wife willing to give up her RX1, I just don't see how that going to happen though.

We really enjoy our RX1 as walk around camera. The Zeiss FE 35mm looks quite small compared to 55mm, which I think it will be perfect for small body like A7r.

I placed my pre-order(A7 + Zeiss 55mm) 20mins after the announcement. I hope to hand on this x-mas.

Ha Ha Ha !!! Good to see you feeding that NGAS Dylan777, like my own, seems alive & healthy.

Enjoy your Xmas Present to yourself.

If you have LR5 you could try to "straighten" the slant of the elephants on either end. I know it works with verticals and horizontals for buildings.

Seeing things that weigh about 800 kg (1750 lb) whizz by around 5 feet from you is unnerving.

Thanks RPT, I do, and I'll have a look to see if it Helps, appreciate that.

And your right, that sort of thing can be unnerving, it's always good though when they actually whiz past you, and not through you.

EOS Bodies / Re: Wait for the Canon 5D Mark IV or get the Mark III?
« on: October 24, 2013, 07:59:28 PM »
the mark IV could be at lease 6months away, minimum. however i have noticed a $300 price drop in the mk III recently......hmmmmm

http://www.johnmckayphotography.com


6 months? That seems highly optimistic given that we don't even expect the 7D to be announced for another 6 months.... 2 years seems like a more realistic timeframe... but I would bet on longer than that.

As digital cameras mature, the difference between updates gets smaller and smaller and for the higher end cameras you can expect update times to get longer.


I'de agree with Don, you could be waiting another 1 to 2 years for an update to the MK III, Cameras are throw away items pretty well, buy what you can't afford now, sell it, or give it away in 2 years and get the new one, don't fall in love with them as after 2 years your always looking over your shoulder at the newer model that just walked by, and be happy with NGAS, this is not an affliction, it's a well developed and nurtured condition.

If you really wanted to upgrade every 6 months, get a Nikon D600, then you could get a Nikon D610 within 6 months (actually right now), and if the optional oil chucking shutter isn'y fixed, you could get the Nikon D620 maybe by Xmas next year, that would be 3 new Cameras in 12 months, with or without the problematic shutter (your choice of course) but all NEW !! and all with no discount for the previous faults in design, Nikon could be onto something here.

Interesting how neither Grey or the guy / guyess in the rumoured 100-400 II photo are using hoods. Have hoods gone out of fashion ?

Greg was using the new (at the time), Nikon 80-400 which he tends never to use the Hood on, he also uses the Nikon 200-400 but keeps the Hood on.

I've sort of followed suit as it seems to work, the Canon 70-200 I don't use the Hood (it's so small in any case), the 200-400 I do but that's mostly because it's the new Baby so gets extra care and attention.

If I have the Sun forward of the front element I'll generally put the Hood on, otherwise I tend to leave them off, at this point I've had very little issue with flare on any of my Canon Lenses.
