Hi everybody

Any 7Dii users out there who can advise whether they can view thumbs of their RAW files please?

Hi,
When you import LR by default creates standard previews. This is what you see on the screen not the actual RAW. When you click on one to make it full size it creates a 1:1 preview.
For what it's worth, when I import I set the preview size to 1:1 in the build previews option box. It takes a little longer to finish the import but after its done flicking through images when reviewing is much faster as the previews don't need to be created.
Also yes the 1:1 previews will take extra space, but I would be odd if you had space for lots of RAW files and not enough for the previews. Also when LR does your weekly optimisation/backup by default it removes those over 30 days old.
I was under the impression that minimal is the default setting and that standard are created when you click to go full screen.  One to one are only created when you zoom to 100%.

I run my operating system on an SSD, raw files get stored on a  hard drive.  Space on the SSD is limited and expensive . Space on the hard drive is large and cheap. Ideally everything would be on the SSD, but that's not going to happen until SSD prices  drop some more.

Software & Accessories / Re: Should you be allowed to shoot down a drone?
« Last post by Tinky on Today at 04:58:39 AM »
Yeah, shoot it down, into a spiral of uncontrolled descent, thats a proportionate response that could see the broken drone land on a busy road and go through a moving cars windscreen, or have the still spinning rotors cut a pedestrians face open.

The only thing stupider than shooting it down is the notion that civilians are allowed guns.

So, a metaphorical shooting down then, but really...   what next, shoot folk with long lenses in case they can see onto your property?

The laws and practices around drones really really need tightening up, but I woukd say idiots with guns do far more harm.

We had a fatal helicopter accident at an emergency site, due to a drone from a newspaper. Since then I believe we have a new regulation, allowing emergency responders to shoot down drones, under certain conditions.
If I did it as a private person, I believe I would be in trouble though. However, with the growing population of drones, there should be a good market for jammers.

Lenstip is more than a little impressed:

It isn't a bad lens at all, just not as good as a prime

Having read the review, I would disagree with that last statement as various measurements show that it is better than some of Canon's primes.

From everywhere else I've been reading I've not really heard of any problems, mostly concerns from people who haven't picked one up.
Thanks, think I've made my mind up to go for the R.

I have a few thousand shots with my 5DSR. I have not done any studio work though, but I have a fair share of both indoor and outdoor shots, with people wearing all kinds of clothing and also some architecture shots. To date I have not detected any moiré problems, so I have nothing to share.

Thank you that was really helpful. It will be great to hear others experience with the camera.
PS "I'm really quite tempted in picking up a 5DS/R and would prefer to go for the R as for want of a better reason the moniker shares my initials. :D" - I couldn't help notice your screen name, I guess that means your tempted by one too?

This article may answer some of your questions:

However, it would be good if the community who own the cameras could add their real world examples, together with info about how frequently it occurs for them?

I wonder how long it will be before a market emerges for signal blockers for drones? Firefighters etc would benefit from them, and I'm sure some large corporations and wealthy individuals would purchase them.
