    Re: NEW Website!

    The website looks fine. But I wanted to hit on the over-exposures of 10-48. Your camera looks to be taking those nice dark trees into account when setting the exposure. Normally I'd recommend using...
  2. Re: Digital Photo Professional vs. Photoshop CS4

    Also worth noting is the latest version of DPP has a much more powerful noise reduction than previous versions. Just go to a newer Canon model support page to get it. For example, on the version that...
  3. Re: Aaarghhh - a dead pixel on a 5D MK II

    Automatic Noise Reduction (should be in the Custommenuu)also helps with any lingering hot pixels in long exposures. The camera will take the picture, then the sensor will expose with the shutter...

    Re: Post Your Best Nature Shots!

    This is the Bee Assassin and it's prey.


    Taken with a Canon XTi, Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro at 1/200 F14, ISO 100, Metz Mecablitz 48 AF-1 Flash at +2 FEC (should have been +3) and Lumiquest Promax...

    Re: Flash Bracket for 50D w/ grip

    The bracket is nice to get the flash way from the camera to virtually eliminate any red eye, as well as to keep the shadows from looking so close to the subject. I love my Lumiquest Promax Softbox,...

    Re: DPP question about sharpening

    The RGB tab is the only option when you don't shoot RAW. As you've seen, you get all three tabs wuth RAW editing. I've found ways to juggle with settings between both. I've found the Tone Curve...

  10. Any observations on Evaluative, Average, Flash Exposure Lock Flash Metering?

    I'll be doing some experimenting once my flash comes in in a few days. But in the meantime, does anyone have any practical experience using the different flash metering modes?

    Re: Canon vs Metz, or other flashes

    I ordered the Metz Mecablitz 48 AF-1 yesterday.


    The final determining factor was having the 7 degree tilt-down for macro at that price point (on top of the rest of the reviews, write-ups, and...
  13. Re: For those who wear glasses...question????

    I shoot with my glasses on, and both eyes open (right eye to viewfinder). My left eye's focus gets messed up using the camera with it closed, and even with it open (but minimized). If I did not wear...

    Canon vs Metz, or other flashes

    Anyone have experience in "other than Canon" flashes?


    I've read about some of Metz's features: USB connection to update firmware, no batteries necessary in flash to use external power pack, nice...
  16. Speedlite 430EX II - Anyone miss not having the 7 degree tilt-down for macro?

    I've been using the 540EZ on manual mode, tilted down with a Pro-Max Softbox. I'm thinking that because the 430EZ is shorter, the tilt-down function may be irrelevant.


    Also, the 580EX is out of...

    Where's the virtue in simply buying cheaper?


    Think of the manly sacrifices you could make for the better lens!
