    Re: Post your best Macro shots

    Yes, you would get a shutter speed of f/5.6 but the noise would be the same as f/9 on a full-frame or f/5.6 noise on a 1.6. The noise would be about the same.

    Re: Post your best Macro shots

    Well, Ed - to be technically correct, if you're including the crop factor effect on focal length you need to include it on aperture as well, so what you have is a672 mm f/9lens in terms of FF...

    Youshould try with all the focus points. My 5D worked better with all the points than with just the center point.

    Re: Body with good IA servo !

    What are you shooting? If you are shooting something fast and erratic like birds in flight, you need something like the 7D which is very accurate and very fast.


    I think the 50D is similar to the...

    Re: Canon 300mm f4 L IS: Any Experiences On FF?

    It's a fanatastic lens for both FF and crop. It works great with the 1.4x and is light and portable enough to pack into the bush. Most highly recommended! Only drawback is that it only has older 2...

    Re: New Lens Recommendations Wanted

    Bob,


    Jordan's got a good point. The 100 mm F/2.8 macro is a great lens that you can stick in the face of a critter to get some great shots. BUT what if the critter doesn't like to have that nice...

    Re: Post your best Macro shots

    Here are three recent shots. When you can't get close enough without disturbing the critter, try using the 672 mm F/5.6 macro, i.e. 7D with 300 mm F4L IS and 1.4x. Shots are about three quarters of...

    I've got the 100 mm F2.8 macro and it's an excellent lens. You will love it in the new world it will open up for you. If I was to buy now, I would consider the 100 mm F2.8 IS L macro instead. When...

    Re: Kayak + 100-400L

    Those are nice shots! And you're right, when you try to walk up to them, you can't get that close before they take off. You can call your kayak part of your camera gear.

    Re: 2nd Body Choices!

    The 7D has inferior reach to a 5DII, because you just put an extender to match the focal length and get much sharper results. The 7D crops the image while the 5D II crops optically and attains better...

    I've got both a 5D Mk II and a 7D. As others have said the 5D Mk II has superior IQ and this is really noticeable in shots with marginal lighting conditions. On a 7D, you can shoot decent shots that...
  19. Re: HELP!!!! need advice from bif guys

    Your ISO setting is probably okay at 500. I like generally to use mine at ISO 400. Your shutter speed is WAY too slow. If you want to have any chance of catching a relative sharp shot of your bird,...

    Re: Which one do you like best and why?

    I like #1 better because the lupin has a similar color to the sky and is a more interesting subject than the tree.


    The good point of #2 is that the sky appears richer because it doesn't have the...
