EOS Bodies / Re: What do you hope-for MOST from Canon in 2014

ST-E3-RT II; big AF light, recycle performance logging, integrated GPS receiver, power dials as on that PW zone controller gizmo.

600EX-RT firmware update:  AF light which fires off-camera.  Seriously Canon, WTF?

12fps matters, with 400mm f2.8 IS II

Good catch!  The fast mirror is fun until it goes off unexpectedly!

Software & Accessories / Re: LR 5.5 - Rotated watermarks disappear?
« on: June 21, 2014, 12:56:40 AM »
I agree that the watermark module is very weak, I use different software that is much more powerful.
 
However, I had no issue rotating a watermark in 5.5 and saving it as a new name.  It shows up fine.
 
Maybe if you tell us exactly what you did, we can try to duplicate it.

Creating a new watermark and rotating it appears to work correctly, but starting with an existing one and rotating it causes the mark to appear only when rotated to its original orientation.

Software & Accessories / LR 5.5 - Rotated watermarks disappear?
« on: June 20, 2014, 10:06:47 PM »
I thought to rotate the watermark for some photos I was going to export, but after rotating it once it disappeared and no end of screwing with settings could make it appear.  Has anyone else had this? 

Adobe would do very well indeed to put some work into that particular part of the program.   >:(

The case for the 300 f/2.8 has nicely shaped pockets for them...   ;)

Rodeo with 70-200 2.8 and 300 2.8

I like the way you got light onto your subjects; I haven't figured out how to get shots like that in sunlight.

Lenses / Re: Lens repair?

I'd ping Roger Cicala at lensrentals.com; he might be able to effect a repair without blowing the $300 max I'd put into that lens.

On a slightly different note, this from a local motocross exhibition today; 5D2, 70-200 f/2.8L IS II.  I spent a bunch of time waiting for the batteries for my lights to charge (my fault) and to my redemption/irritation the sun was in exactly the right spot.  This got the lens profile and a very little love in LR5.

Nice timing Jim...great shot! 

North

Thank you!  All this fuss thinking about where to put lights, and the sun was exactly where I wanted it to be!

Rodeo action yesterday with the 1dx and 70-200 and 300 2.8.

Full sun at high noon so the light was quite harsh and from straight above, but i did the best i could

Looks like pursing of the lips is a Rodeo requirement, great action shots Northstar.

I think it makes the horses go faster.  Somehow.     :P

To answer your original question, google Jared Polin or Fro Knows Photo; his reviews are interesting even if you don't agree with everything he says.

Jim

Thanks Jim, will do. Are there also any books on lightning that you would suggest me read?

Electrical storm lightning, or lighting?  For the latter I'd suggest Bruce Dorn on Youtube; if you can get past the glasses he has some good ideas that you can use without spending a mint.  For the former, get yourself a thunderstorm, a tripod and a Nero Trigger.

Lighting / Re: Small container for holding spigots/studs?

Mailing tube maybe?  The lids usually fit tightly enough to survive in a bag but no tightly as to keep you out.

How about a 7D2, the 10-22, and a Sigma 18-35?

I have a feeling your lioness there isn't in much mood to share!
