    High School Soccer Video

    I am very new to video and am hoping for some direction… My son plays varsity high school soccer and I would need to get some footage over the next few years for his college recruiting video.

    1DX II - 4k Video - Stills

    After only taking pictures for years, I have started to take a little video. I know I can take stills in camera from 4k video but can I do the same "out of" camera (e.g. Premiere Pro...)? Have a GREAT day! tom

    CPS Repair

    I am a Platinum CPS member and I have always had great experiences with CPS and felt it has been worth the money. I most recent experience is making me question that and I am curious if this is an anomaly or standard for CPS? A few weeks ago, I dropped my 1DX MII with a 100-400 II on a curb...

    Does anyone have a suggestion on how to mount a FoCal target on a light stand or tripod? Historically I mounted the target on a painting canvas and hung it on wall. Unfortunately that is no longer an option. Have a GREAT day! tom

    Time-Lapse advice

    I need to take a week long time-lapse of one of our warehouses. I have done this a few times before using CamRanger and was pleased with the result but it required a lot of hand holding. I am not worried about getting the camera settings right (e.g. white balance, focus...) or assembling the...

    Has anyone had any luck mounting a GoPro on a lens hood (or somewhere else on the lens/body)? I mostly shot youth soccer (indoor and outdoor) and it seems like it might be a fun way to get some game footage for the kids. Have a GREAT day! tom

    Controlling two cameras

    I am going to use two cameras to photograph my son's next soccer game. I am using 2 1dx's (mine and I am borrowing a friends) with a 300mm 2.8 II on a monopod and a 70-200 2.8 II with a Black Rapid strap. It feels very awkward trying to take a picture with the 70-200 because I can't figure out...

    Canon 200-400 and Adorama

    I was lucky enough to purchase a Canon 200-400 a few weeks ago from Adorama. I have completely fallen in love with this lens. With the purchase was a 2% reward which effectively turns into a credit to use later. Somewhere between a few days and a week after I purchased the lens, Adorama...
