1D X Sample Images / Re: Any Thing shot with a 1Dx
« on: September 23, 2014, 12:15:48 AM »
Does anyone know why the saturation goes away when I upload?  That file looks nothing like the one on my computer that I posted.

It's usually missing a step going from ProPhotoRGB or AdobeRGB to sRGB.  Blues end up purple-ish also.

If someone needs a law to tell them that this is wrong, they shouldn't be out in public unsupervised.

If a seller doesn't have the box, it increases the chance that the part is stolen.

That is such bulls**t.

Citation?

I didn't get much out of a reverse search for it, but his conduct utterly fails the Don't Be a Dick test; I hope they had some large gentlemen working at the show who took that guy out back and had a little talk at him.

If a seller doesn't have the box, it increases the chance that the part is stolen.  So I keep them for when I go to sell my stuff.

Software & Accessories / Canadian source for SD cards in bulk?
« on: September 20, 2014, 09:51:13 PM »
Anyone?  I'm after the 400x 16GB pro SD cards particularly, fifty or so of them.

How about angle data embedded into the exif data?  The ability to automatically level images to the horizon (in post) would be useful.

5D III, Sigma 50A, flash off the ceiling, shot blind, got lucky.

I'd love PIP for LV magnification - i.e. only magnify the picture in the selection rectangle, while maintaing the whole composition in the original frame. Just an option to turn on/off, not a replacement of how the current LV works.

This!  I was trying to shoot at the zoo, and this would have helped a lot to get the focus and composition at the same time.

Regional Boards / Lens rentals in western Belgium?
« on: September 19, 2014, 08:13:45 PM »
Anyone know a place?  I'd prefer a Schneider 2.8/50 PC but a Canon 24 TS is probably useable.

Lenses / Re: Brand New 300mm f/2.8L IS II or 2nd Hand 400mm f/2.8 L IS

I'd factor the cost of service into the 400, but I'd lean in that direction.

I want a work over of the normal to short telephoto lenses with is, like the 24, 28, and 30 is.

Maybe I get you wrong (or incompletely) but what is missing for you from the 16-35 f/4?

EOS Bodies / Re: LP-E6N on the 7D MK II
« on: September 18, 2014, 09:56:28 AM »
The advertised figures show no difference in capacity between them, so why worry?

EOS Bodies / Re: LP-E6N in 5DMK III
« on: September 18, 2014, 12:18:19 AM »
If the N batteries are built to more recent Japanese safety standards, they might end up being easier to carry on flights; they're small compared to laptop batteries but non-trivial.  Other than that I don't see any reason other than availability to make the change.

We need someone who has used the new battery for 1D X (LP-E4N) in a 1DsIII, 1DIII or 1DIV and can tell if it had a longer life compared to the LP-E4.

That wouldn't be a directly useful comparison: the LP-E4N is advertised as having an additional 150 mA·h capacity over the LP-E4, while the capacity for the LP-E6 and E6N is advertised at 1800 mA·h.
