When a thief finds a camera, does he/she really look closely to see if it has a red ring?

IMHO, 99% of people don't know what that "red ring" means...

unless it's a "red ring on a white lens"...  ;)

Reikan FoCal (Pro version) also comes with a 'Focus Consistency Test' that might be useful to you.

Let me blow your mind a little.


obviously these could not have been taken by a 5D3............. ::) ::) ::)

http://www.flickr.com/photos/mattbicephotography/ here is my photostream so you can go look at the pictures at full size. I think LR4.1 RC certainly works better with Nikon.

For the Lightroom/ACR conversion, did you use Photoshop's highlight/shadow adjustment too or just Lightroom/ACR's exposure slider?

I have absolutely no idea how they'll cope next year with the Olympics.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mark III - Repair Procedure
« on: April 26, 2012, 10:24:57 AM »
I emailed Canon regarding the repair procedure of the affected 5D Mark III's.

This is what they replied:

"... But even for the unfixed cameras there will be a free of charge service offered at our service station to replace the light shield from 10th of may."

"According to the information I have it is a light shield between LCD-Illumination and Exposure sensor located at the prism unit."

Thanks.. I was wondering about this since their free service announcement...

Nice job!
That last one looks a little bit backlit, in the same situation my 7D would have blown out the background or just made the bird a mush of black. Did you use any +/- EV Comp while shooting, or recover details in PP? (or is the 5D3 metering just that good?)

I used Aperture Priority Mode, spot metering with +1/3 EV Comp and some regular PP.

If you're curious, I attached here a screen capture from DPP with only default settings.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mark III NOT Getting Recalled?

To tell you the truth, my images have never looked better with the cap on, so no complaints here!

My "Lens-Cap-On" photos looks fantastic as well.  Dunno what all the fuss is about...

I'm on a tight budget.  :( So, my question is, has anybody tried any 3rd party lens cap before? How's the color and contrast? Any recommendation?

I got mine few weeks ago simply by off the shelf purchase.
I can't stand the agony of waiting for the the delivery to arrive.  ;D

5d mark iii light leak

light leak with normal operation in sunlight

That would explain my consistent under exposures in direct sunlight!

Anybody ever tried taking a normal in sunlight shot and another one while covering the LCD to verify this under-exposure issue?
