I heard they can be fierce, and are not afraid of confrontation ...

Good luck negotiating the price down

Aren't they considered the most dangerous animals on the continent?
How close were you?

What operating system do ypou use?

For Mac OS I would recommend trying GraphicConverter
There is a free trial. It has an image browser which lets you modify EXIF data (and more) for selected images, and also has a batch convert with tons of options.

I don't use it a lot since I got Aperture, but for converting and browsing images which I do not want in Aperture, it is still my preferred choice.

sounds very much like he confused in-camera RAW with 8-bit vs 16-bit files on a computer

A little compilation of a singing male skylark. This is pushing the 2x extender past its comfort zone, but thankfully the bird stayed mostly in one place (although pointing straight up and holding still with this setup has taken a bit of practice! ;) ). 5DIII + 500L II + 2x III (f/10, 1/2500, ISO 2500).
Very nice. I always liked larks, but sometimes they are hard to spot (at least the ones in Europe that I know).

I guess that camera and lens weight was fully resting on your face when you took these?  ;)

Let's reframe the discussion.

It's not the telescope, it's the astronomer.
Absolutely. A good astronomer can take better pictures with an old paper towel roll and a monocle than a newbie with 5-digit $ worth of gear.

What ever you do, Do NOT Download the RRS 2014 Catalogue.
You are not helping, eml ;)


and if you need a dr. to cure GAS, I highly recommend Neuro ;D
That would be palliative care, not a cure.

Stupid rumor. Sorry I cannot believe it.

C'mon man, it is the year of the lens; this might be THE lens!  :D
Still it is even more stupid than other rumors  ;)

Just because it is not a lens you want?
No just because the existing one is a very good lens.
maybe it is just a version II to lower production cost, with identical optical formula

I like this Image, but it's also an example of how little room for mistakes you have @ f/1.4

I thought I had the Glasses in focus, but it ended up the Hands, still, I soft focus treated it & was Happy with the outcome, more importantly, so was the Model.
So the picture increased the WAF for your photography?
Nice picture, beautiful model, and great tattoo btw

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Advise Please

Thanks, I appreciate these tips very much, I have a Mac book pro, and will be needing apperature I suppose. I have a great deal to learn, but can't wait to get rolling, I will be heading to Bedfords Camera shop monday in Oklahoma City.

One minor suggestion - I don't think that many would argue that Lightroom isn't the better option over Aperture at this point. Unless you have a specific reason for wanting Aperture, I'd go with Lightroom (there are some good deals out there at the moment for the standalone version if you don't want to go the subscription route). I should also say that you don't "need" either when just starting out. Your camera will come with software to allow you to do basic processing of RAW files and preparation for web or print - Lightroom will come in very handy once you need more convenient editing and catalog management tools.
When starting out, even the included iPhoto is not bad

EOS Bodies / Re: When Does the Year of the Lens Start?

Come on now! We have been through this before.... 2014 is the year of the LENS. Not the year of the lenses, the year of the lens.... singular!

Expect one lens release.
yes. And it will be THE lens, like in mother of all lenses  :o
