Good shots!  I'll watch it on Youtube etc., and I appreciate the exercise of skill and practice it takes.

How do you feel about the reds in these photos?  I ask because I have found with my Colorchecker Passport that my camera has trouble with blues sometimes, and I suspect (but haven't confirmed) that reds sometimes show up too brightly also.

Lenses / 52mm drop in polarizers - interchangeable?
« on: July 06, 2014, 02:55:05 AM »
Hi, anyone know if this one and this one interchange?  The (more or less) local place has the lens I want and the other filter, and as much as the obvious answer is no if they're simply a different colour then I'm not going to fuss.

Press "test" button" on ste-e3 and the 600s will fire in sequence according to the groups they are assigned to.

Easy way to find out which group is which

Fact, and I learned this; I learned also that your transmitter must be in group mode with each group in ETTL to fire groups D and E.

Last year; the photos from this year were rubbish.  So, call it luck.  Jim

Lightroom.  LR5 is still around, it is a phenomenal bargain for what it does.

There is also the 70-300 DO; not the fastest but lots of reach for its physical length.

200 f/2.8L and 1.4 and 2X extenders in the wife's purse?  Limiting lens choice by a metric like that is stupid and should be soundly mocked.

I didn't get into top-flight flashes until the RT ones came out - a fluke of timing - but I wouldn't buy anything else personally.  The system just plain works, and I've had the ST-E3-RT fire lights from 600' away with a clear line of sight and what I assume is a quiet RF environment.  Not having to reach into modifiers to adjust them and having no extra cable connections is probably worth the price of admission.

First:  Be very, very clear with your friend what she will get from you, be it free or paid or some of each.

Second: Make a plan for the wedding which you can explain in detail to someone else - the big day is no time for guessing.

Third: Rent another body, one lens on each.  That way you have a good chance of having one work all the way through the event, and best-case you save swapping lenses back and forth.

Fourth: Go over the plan, get someone else to look at it, make sure you won't be faced with a question you can't answer.

In a machine tool it would be called backlash, but one perspective is that if you can get usable shots then living with it is an option.  Whether or not you want to is your choice, depends on what you paid for it compared to its competition I guess.

Oh sure, I thought I didn't really want a big white something or other and then this comes along...  ;)

Try formatting a card with your computer.  If that doesn't help try that card in another camera if you can.
