She was looking for it too, so that would be effort I would imagine she wouldn't expend if she is trying to prove a point.

I got a new copy of Light room 5... in a retail box and somehow it found its way into the recycling bin.  Yeah... maybe I shouldn't have left it on the floor until I was ready to install it, but it didn't look like trash.

The person who I'm related to by marriage and lives in my home  is the only one who cleans, so I'm ok with the occasional why is this now missing for the rest of my life... because it is a fair trade off to having to clean.

Maybe I need labels that say, NOT TRASH.

Alternative: Someone is trying to scam you with an ad for a ridiculously low priced Big White without reserve. Never pay if they ask you to not go through e-bay/ PayPal.

I play with them from time to time.  I give them a po box and they claim to seems a check... then after a while they say they will get the fbi and cia involved...

Good Lord... the cia...?

The CIA was founded to monitor and protect camera gear sales.  You didn't know that?  It was only later that they started using camera gear for spying, which then led to them turning their focus towards espionage.  In 1937, the president (FDR at the time) signed the Photographic Instrumentation Sales and Service act (PISS) which eliminated the CIA's budget for monitoring camera gear sales.  It was from that point on that the CIA focused on what they do now.  At the time they weren't known officially as the CIA though.  That didn't happen for another 10 years.

I learn something new everyday.

ebay is loaded with people who try but do not sell their items because they have no clue as to its value.  Craigslist is even worse, with many asking $100 for third party lenses bought at a garage sale for a buck, and have no idea as to what its or what camera it fits.  Most of them claim it will fit any camera.

Some lady is selling a 135mm soligar lens... and I talked to her once and said that it might help if she indicates which camera brands the lens would work with & she didn't listen.  With an adapter I might want it for S___s and gigs, but I have no clue.

My Question: Would it worth the money to buy the 6D? Is the 6D faster than the 60D?

Given the basic level of research you did before asking, no, it's probably not "worth it" for you. If you're rather short on money, an "upgrade" should be driven by a very pressing need to improve in certain photography aspects. Since the video of the 6d is horrible, that leaves stills - what are the situations/settings your 60d fails, what are your lenses?

Horrible?  Are we talking moire, fps options... I think horrible might be overstating it a bit.

352
When I owned my 60d I would shoot using the center af point and the servo mode... if you plan on doing that with the 6d, it should be fine.  But you lose 2 fps & you also lose the perceived reach of the crop sensor. 

I think the 6d is a very good upgrade from the 60d, but it all depends on how you use it.

353
While I'm asking dumb questions... why aren't we just using hdr multiple exposures to capture some of our missing dynamic range... sure if the subject is moving... but it was a living room.

354
I could take a picture of my ass with the A7 and there'd be "X" amount of dynamic range.

I could take a picture of a smiling baby with my 60D...not as much.

Which would you rather BEHOLD?

IT'S NOT ABOUT THE DAMN DATA!

It all depends on whose ass...

355
The conclusion of this particular subject is that the A7R files handles shadow recovery better than the 5D3 files at the ISO used. This is a fact, not a theory, no matter what the subject or conditions.

Sure.  We've all known that for quite a while...years, in fact.  So of course, jrista's conclusion was utterly banal.  If you're a fan of entirely predictable 'experiments' perhaps you'd like to drop an object – tennis ball, apple, your camera – from a couple of meters above the ground, and verify the existence of gravity.  Be sure to start a new forum topic to educate all of us on your findings.

Yeah, but how do you explain a feather not falling straight down, but seemingly soaring above the clouds.

What was the dynamic range of film?  I'm curious if digital has surpassed film in that regard.

I'm eligible to sell in that section, but I didn't sell anything during the beta. 

I though I got a message that the beta was ending soon, but I'm not sure exactly when the end date is.

Where are you keeping the Irish whiskey?  Good Lord... you can't traverse the countryside without some medicinal libations.

Sl1 and the m are light weight .  If you feel the need for a backup with you, I'd suggest one of those.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: My new toy, Best of monopod in my Idea.
« on: September 29, 2014, 05:23:56 PM »
Video.  I have the fluid head but I haven't used it yet.  I'm fond of it... but I WANTED to love it... I think longer feet without the ball would make me happy, but I did use the ball to get the shaft perpendicular to the ground, so I'm complaining for very little reason.

I picked up a manfrotto with the feet... the 5d mkiii plus a lens unstable if the monopod is extended... but if I keep the neck strap around my neck... I minimize the risk of it falling due to being unbalanced. 

I tightened the ball and it isn't bad, but I feel as though I am lubing it up on the ball to keep it firm, but smooth.

It is heavy... but nothing a trip  or two to three gym can't solve.


Do you have the one i have, or the video version with the semi pivoting feet?  Mines pretty stable as long as it's in controlled environments...  and that's with my 5d3 and 24-105...  When using the 70-200, i have the collar so it's more balanced
