Technical Support / Re: Optimal processing platform of still images
« on: December 02, 2014, 08:44:58 AM »
Hand built by my IT son..."C" and "F" drives are SSD's.  No trouble stacking 75 images!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Is IQ better with smaller files?
« on: November 18, 2014, 07:50:16 AM »
I groaned and shook my head at the OP's query for it shows a fundamental misunderstanding of jpeg versus RAW images and the processing involved.  That being said, if your only interest is 7MP images (8x10), cooked in by the camera's PP software, then the reduced size will give a better IQ image than would a native 7MP camera.  I would question the motives involved, as accomplishing the same thing starting with RAW images will cough out a much better small image than doing it "in camera".

I do hope that you're not counting on getting increased resolution for your tethered shooting...that is limited by your camera's LCD screen's resolution.      ;)

Canon General / Re: How Soon We Forget!

I haven't forgotten...the Rebel, the 5D, the series of 1Ds's (including the obscene 8 grand for the last one).
I would do it all over again and, being a gear junkie, I still pine for the one just around the corner...
Because, with each one, I get all little better with this stupid hobby.    ::)

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Says Higher Resolution Sensors Are Coming Soon
« on: September 25, 2014, 09:14:07 AM »
I gotta say up front that I'm a news junkie and watch tons of interviews...DPReview's interview was just about the absolute worst that I've ever read.  I was as if both of them was reading from a script, sans any kind of follow-up questions.

It would be interesting to see some sort of sales breakdown and cost analysis of Canon products...they do sell the most.  Trying to please the folks like us might not rate that high on their priority list.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Switch from Ds3 to 7d Mk2
« on: August 18, 2014, 09:16:54 AM »
I don't know
If one must resort to merely shows their total lack of knowledge.      :(
MFD and optical magnification would be unchanged.  AoV would go from ~13° to ~8°, FoV at 1:1 from framing a quarter to framing a dime.
Terse and to the point...great answer!     ;)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Switch from Ds3 to 7d Mk2
« on: August 18, 2014, 07:42:23 AM »
My only lens for macro is a 180mm which manages to cough out superior images in spite of my ineptitude.
What would be the results if I were to use that lens on a new 7D Mk2?
Things like...minimum focusing distance, increased magnification due to smaller field of view, and whatnot.

Aah...wait a minute here...what about my battery of "L" lenses???

Business of Photography/Videography / Why Photography
« on: July 13, 2014, 07:44:29 AM »
I got into this ridiculous hobby post retirement.  It is a self-satisfying way to pass the time as it keeps me off the streets and outta the bars, but, if someone approached me about making a career from photography...I would be forced to slap them up-side the head.

Aside from the occasionally successful wedding and fashion photog...who is gonna buy your stuff.
Besides the local hotel that hosts local photography and the traveling art shows that caters to folks with some disposable doesn't sell. 
Peruse the "decorator wall décor" websites, photography occupies a very small subset therein, so again I ask...who is gonna buy your stuff?

Macro / Re: Flower macros

Macro does tend to keep me off the streets and outa the bars.    ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: Eos7D mk2, How disappointed will you be if . . .?
« on: July 07, 2014, 01:58:33 PM »
Disappointment would be Canon releasing new prosumer cameras that are comparable to Sony...Gawd, I hope not.    :(

Technical Support / non functioning shutter
« on: July 04, 2014, 01:02:34 PM »
Just got this 1DsMkIII back from canon repair>returned all CF settings to the best I can remember...

Problem is that the shutter button will not respond by taking a picture, it will lock on Autofocus but, will not cough out a picture.
However, it will function properly while in Live View does cough out a image shooting in LV.

FYI...customer service is closed today.

Technical Support / 1DsMkIII custom functions
« on: July 02, 2014, 09:55:55 AM »
Alright, I pissed-up...Canon reset all my custom functions during repair and I hadn't saved them.
I always shoot in manual mode using the LCD live view histogram to set exposure.  That said...
anyone have links for suggested CF settings regarding BIF/critters/sports shooting using AI Servo?
FYI...firmware version 1.2.3

Photography Technique / 180 mm macro with kenko extension tubes
« on: June 29, 2014, 08:42:43 PM »
1Ds3 & 180 macro, coupled with extension tubes at minimum focusing distance...12mm/20mm/36mm, all or any combination thereof.
What are the formulas to determine magnification factors using the various extension tubes and/or combinations?    :-[
