    Made a mistake and used a friends 1D-X

    Well I have been putting off playing with a Canon 1D-X because I was afraid I would like it to much. Well I screwed up and tried the camera and now I have one. I like my Canon 7d mark II but I really like the 1D-x . It will be interesting how the 1D-x will hold up to croping the images vs the...

    Missed my first hawk diving for a fish

    I saw my first hawk dive for a fish today and was in such awe at it diving that I missed the shot except for when it was flying away with the fish. Unfortunately by the time I got my act together it was so far away the shot came out bad. I have such respect for Kristofer Rowe bird in flight...

    Canons Digital Photo Professional (DPP) software

    I have been doing a lot of reading from a very well known bird Photographer Arthur Morris. He is really big on using Canons Digital Photo dpp 4 software for his raw images vs Lightroom or Photoshop. Now I was very skeptical since the software was free. There is a downfall I did find with the...

    Question about extenders

    I am shooting with a canon 7d mark II with CanonEF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens with a CanonExtender EF 1.4X III. If shooting at 200mm with the crop body puts it at (200mm x 1.6 crop body) = 320mm. Now with the extender would I go 320mm x 1.4 of the extender and get a total of 448MM? Am I...

    One lens Vs Another

    I recently purchased the 70-200 f2.8 II version lens and I love it. My question Is the 135 f2L really that much sharper then the 70-200 lens? I am wondering if its really worth getting since I have that focal length covered? I would use it for primarily shooting random potraits on a canon 6d...

    Finally pulled the trigger

    Well I could not take it any longer and purchased the canon 70-200 2.8 II. I have the original one but I have been hearing such good reviews of the second version that I just had to have one. Now hopefully I can sell my version 1 to help offset the cost. Cant wait to try it out.

    Color gel covers for flash

    Alot of times when I take a picture in a room where the lighting has a yellow tint from the lighting would it help to use a color over the flash of the tint of the room lighting?
