The main issue with Lightroom CC (apart from the monthly cost) is the forced upgrades that will likely contain bugs (and may not work perfectly with my OS version) and future forced updates will eventually no longer work with my computer. Standalone version for me.

EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: Autofocus Related Patent Applications from Canon

One of the pleasures of the M5 (and other M series) is the exceptionally accurate and precisely reproducible AF, which is much so much more consistent than any of my 5 or 7 series.  If only the Canon mirrorless had spot AF and speed of the mirrors.

Cinema EOS Rumors / Re: Canon Global Shutter Sensor Paper

From those who don't want to do the maths themselves, a 3.4um pitch sensor gives you:

APS-C : 29 megapixels
FF:  74 megapixels

But for this sensor, it's only 5887200 pixels, 5.8MP.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: buy a 1DX used now or wait to buy a 5D4 later

It doesn't really make much sense.

"Hello, I'm a musician. Should I buy a used piano now or wait to buy a saxophone later?"

No sense.

One feature nobody is mentioning is the exposure metering at the focusing point. In my case, shooting concerts required the ability to properly expose the image without recomposing. Taking into account the fast movoement and continuously changing lights, 1DX beats the 5D4. . .

pierre

I'll second this: I have both the 1DX & 5D4, and for ease of handling, the smaller body is much more preferable, but for control & customisation the 1DX wins.

I always end up wishing I had my spot metering linked to the focus point.

You will be very happy with either, just depends on your use case.

I find any kind of auto exposure utterly unworkable at concerts, I use manual mode exclusively. Indeed I find very little practical use for the AF linked spot metering and wouldn't give a seconds thought if it were omitted or deleted.

What do you do when then light suddenly lights up and blow out your M setting? With Av, spot linked to AF and limited lower shutter you’ll get every shot perfectly exposed, from flood light to cave. I LOVE spot meter on AF point :D

That said, choosing between the 1dx mk1 and 5d4, I would go with the 5d4 unless there was specific features I must have that only the 1dx has.

"After all it is the closest to what a human eye can see" - I'm sure it's a nice pinhole, but equating that to the lensed human eye is just ignorant marketing babble.

Kings Canyon National Park and Sequoia National Park adjoin each other and are basically managed as one national park. They were established to protect giant sequoia trees (though apparently there is a grove of sequoias in Yosemite as well). The parks are located in the mountains just east of Fresno. The drive up to the Kings Canyon entrance (which would be the north entrance) is a fairly smooth and gradual highway up the mountain (which passes by Project Survival's Cat Haven if you want to see big cats in a zoo type setting). The drive up to the Sequoia entrance (which would be the south entrance) is extremely narrow and steep with hairpin turns for about an hour. Unless you are driving a Porsche, it is not very enjoyable, but it can be done if that is more on your way.

Here are a couple wildlife photos from my trip this summer, taken with a 70-200 to show you how close you can get (these are uncropped and unadjusted except for downsizing). First is a mountain quail and second is a mule deer.

Thanks bro. That Deer shot is very very nice.
