    Canon "color" 6D

    hi, I'm looking to buy an old 6D. I'm a Nikon FF shooter and want to see the canon "color" for myself (cheaply if possible). If convinced - I'll jump ship - tired of removing green/blue shift from photos in PP. Does the old 6D have good Canon "color"? This would be a "test" purchase so I...

    looking for a scanner

    hi all, I'm looking for a used scanner (probably from CL) to scan in old photos. I currently have a Canon Pixma pro100 printer. Should I stick with a Canon scanner for a software handshake? or? This item would be rarely used and I don't need to scan film. thanks

    colorchecker/xrite/pantone ..vs ...color swatches from HD

    Thanks for the input Ysarex Color accuracy is an elusive goal. - Seems so. I'm a novice at LR and photography - thus I'm running into many barriers at once. I'm person that likes definitions and "knowns" to work from ...........Color correcting in LR can be a frustrating experiment, even with...

    colorchecker/xrite/pantone ..vs ...color swatches from HD

    What are you hoping to achieve with this. Do you want to make camera input profiles or is this a WB target? Well color accuracy. You can get WB with a gray card I guess.... but.... is it possible to assemble a group of paint samples to function the same/similar way as an xrite. If somebody...

    colorchecker/xrite/pantone ..vs ...color swatches from HD

    Hi all, I'm thinking about getting a xrite colorchecker with software that works in Adobe. The -- get it right the first time, everytime ----- the easy button for WB. Got it. That said, what about the paint swatches from HD - made by experts and under exacting color temperature. Could you...

    180mm 2.8D - thoughts

    Thanks for the input guys and sweet photo manny212. Sounds like you guys have had good experiences with the lens and a "non D" version is okay too (and a little cheaper). I have to admit that I've been watching some videos by "the angry photographer" (yes I'm easily led by carnival barkers)...

    180mm 2.8D - thoughts

    hi all, I'm thinking about buying (a gently used)180mm 2.8D. The reviews seem to vary from "very sharp" to "dated and soft". I may sell my 85mm 1.8G and pick one up if you guys give the lens a thumbs up. Thanks

    Canon vs Nikon - Stereotypes

    How can Canon or Nikon claim superiority when third party's are make the senors. It would be nice if one or the other would do so (if financially possible). As it stands, both are selling plastic boxes with _____________ (fill in the blank) sensors it it. As a Nikon owner - I own a Sony sensor...

    Tokina AT-X 11-20mm - New APSC - What for?

    What is the future of APSC lenses ? As gently used FF cameras are coming available at less than a thousand dollars.......this lens release is a little confusing from a business standpoint. I'm a DX shooter and dumped all my DX lenses but one (35mm 1.8G). What do you guys think?....

    Allow LR5 to handle Image - disable Canon manager

    Hi all, Sorry in advance for my silly question. Q) How do I give full control of printing to LR 5. I understand you have to first disable the printer driver(s). I have a Canon Pixma Pro100 and I can't find any "button" anywhere in LR5 that says "give print control to LR5" I see videos...

    LR5 - adobe support -

    Thanks everybody... Maybe I was a little harsh towards Adobe. I want them to protect themselves in this hacker world we live in but I just don't want another subscription. Magazine/paper subscriptions have gone the way of the buggy whip - I just don't want another subscription. Even if it's...

    LR5 - adobe support -

    Hi all, I'm confused about how The Cloud rental service will affect my copy/use of LR5. What happens to my photos and so on. I have zero interest in the Adobe Cloud rental system. On that point - Adobe can drop dead.

    LR 5 - "bundled version" - may buy

    Thanks everybody. I should have been more clear... "Bundled" LR 5 comes up for sale on CL from time to time for about 75.00. A stand alone LR 5 that was sold only as part of a Christmas package - if you bought a few lenses you got a "free" or "bundled" copy of LR 5. Some guys already have LR...

    LR 5 - "bundled version" - may buy

    I'm thinking about buying a "bundled version" of LR 5. Read -> inexpensive. Bad idea? How's the software? I'm currently using DXO but would like the "handshake" user friendliness of LR. Seems everything (including my Canon printer) is geared towards the LR software interface. How much should...

    Which 85mm

    I'm a total newbie....So as the Romans say "consider the source" I've owned the 1.8d and have the 1.8G. The G might be the most incredible bargain in lenses In the Nikon line. It's incredibly sharp. The only lens that's as good (that I've owned) is the 105mm 2.8VR Macro. That said...The 1.8D...

    Old 50mm 1.8 AF - no "D" - just bought

    Nice shots Derrel. It's encouraging to know a working pro is using the lens. Maybe there will be a handful of "D" series lenses that survive after all - survive the latest uber sensors that is... Just got it home - not a scratch anywhere, like brand new, complete with an undamaged "Passed"...

    Old 50mm 1.8 AF - no "D" - just bought

    I'm looking to buy some "beach lenses". It kills me to think of the salt air eating my better lenses. I treat my gear great and have never dropped a lens in a swamp before but if I did ;it sure would hurt a lot less with a 40.00 lens. Widdling down... I've been there. It's easy to become a...

    Old 50mm 1.8 AF - no "D" - just bought

    Thanks for the info 480......I do use my SB700 from time to time and that's good to know. I wonder why he would say "bokeh fairly nice".From what I've read the 1.8D is well known for having very sharp optics -stopped down- yet unpleasant bokeh. I wondered if some coating/lack of coating or...
