This video show how Ron Paulk runs CarrySpeed & L Bracket
Ron Paulk's take on the Carry Speed FS-Pro Camera Sling
So, you're saying I shouldn't have tried to take a picture from inside a pitch black tunnel and capture the graffiti sprayed on the black walls with black paint and in the same shot capture the kids' white chalk drawings on the white sidewalk in full sun just outside the tunnel? Was that where I went wrong? I bet a D7100 could have done it, though, right? Sadly, I'm stuck with this PoS, poor dynamic range 1D X. As the actor-turned-Mayor-of-Carmel once said, "A man's got to know his limitations."Lol, at least you have a slightly better chance with that tunnel than I do. I better get down to Carmel soon, maybe book a room at that actor's ranch, before the foggy season ends. They also don't have those tunnels down there AFAIK
I usually drive to the coast here which tends to be foggy. Even a Canon can handle that reduced DR. You should try it one dayI might even go and...(gasp)...take a photo or two, and...(gasp)...enjoy it!
I tried that, but the fact that I have only 11 stops of DR just sucked the joy right out of it.
this should be fun.sure? I might be just like TV, re-run after re-run
Sony needs to do something if they want to be taken seriously. Photozone finally got a new lens back after 74 days at Sony Australia. I don't know how good they are in Canada or the USA, but 74 days is absurd, they should have sent a new lens after 30 days.
I've been watching the day's add up on Photozones home page.
Reminds me of the guy from Top Gear saying "How hard can it be?" before they go out and build amphibious cars that all sink elegantly in the lake
Maybe they plan on bigger for MF ---something in the 80mp range. If they can make 50 mp FF sensors, then 80 + mp mf sensors shouldn't be that hard.
I like that the collar is a good way for me to support the lens... The focus and zoom rings are swapped compared to other common L-series zooms, and without the collar, my hand reaches for the 70-300L's focus ring almost automatically. Supporting the lens by the collar foot places my hand so I grab the zoom ring by default.btw, what lens plate do you use on the 70-300? I have the P20 but find it is almost longer than necessary. With the 5D it never is front heavy on a tripod, and when handheld the plate is a bit in the way when I grab the zoom ring, so I was considering a P10
The 70-300L seems like a great lens for me, ...It is a great lens, but since you mentioned wild life and birds - even on a crop body it will feel too short many times.
