  • The evening of 4 of July in Quito.  A pano with the 18-55 at 18, multiple images stitched.  It is almost 180 degrees.
  • Created discussions Ecuador - Galapagos with M
    I have a 5d2 and bought an M for travel.  I sold the purchase as leave big expensive camera at home and travel light. When confronted with renting a 100-400, I decided to take both.  I did leave a ...
  • Oops, I forgot.  The M has a setting "hdr" that takes 4 images quickly and in camera fixes things.  That is probably the simplest option.  Technically, not the best, but very easy.  Good enough?  ...
  • Bracketing all your shots?  No.  However, if I am in full sun with high dynamic range and you have hope of collecting a keeper, yes bracket them.  It is a menu and a little tricky.  It is not bad. ...
  • First, do not throw away images.  Later you may get better tools or understanding and resurrect a classic.  DPP is supposed to get an update (free) that does shadows highlights.  Otherwise you can ...
  • Don't know.  First time.  The wildlife is supposed unafraid of humans.  It will not be an intense dirds in flight. I am leaning on the 5d and a zoom.  I know it.  Perfection would be a 5D 3, but ...
  • Do not be afraid of hand held hdr.  Do not be afraid of RAW.  Both can be your friend. A little shadow highlights.  Shadows were a little blue.
  • Created discussions Use a 5d as a backup?
    Yet another gear head post.  Yet another which lens should I buy. ---  here goes. I have a 5d2 and use a 24-105, 40 pancake, and 17-40.  Nice setup but not very stealthy or light.  So I bought an ...
  • My guess is that wide angle would be better, so the 22 should be good.  Shallow snorkeling should reduce need for complexity and flash. If this were a diving trip, whole different answer. By the ...
  • Replied in New to LR
    Yes.  First the RAW / jpeg is in preferences.  Library-- edit  -- preference (or control +) then the general tab. Easy answer for develop.  It was designed to go top down. Global adjustments ...
  • Created discussions M goes underwater?
    I am traveling to the Galapagos with my new M. We will snorkel and spend time in a rain forest. There is a DiCAPac underwater housing available. Less than 70$. Has anyone tried this? I do not know ...
  • 2.0.2  I just bought a M and it had the most recent firmware on it.  In the unlikely event your M has old firmware, you will need to log into Canon website and download.  Just follow their ...
  • Thanks for the input.  It has been hard since there are no stores with an M nearby.  My new camera M is arriving Friday.  Holy crap.  I needed to buy memory cards, batteries, cases.  It is like a ...
  • For me it is easy.  Rent an efs 10-18 or 10-22.  There are no 11-22 in USA.  Henry's is sold out. You can buy on ebay from Japan.  I am going on a trip and do not have my M yet.  Love / hate?  ...
  • I am considering both also.  I am new to this forum (and not a troll).  The major complaint has been on the M is the focusing speed.  I am considering them for candid photography.  Is the M ...
  • Some people have a problem with the concept of curves.  They are a wonderful tool, but I have been on a internet class when a smart, knowledgeable user, just could not grasp.  With a lot of ...
  • Sorry, another newbie question.  I moved up from a pro9000  to the pro100.  So I have old cli 8 cartridges I have not recycled.  Do they get dried up? How does this work?  Print until the printer ...
  • Replied in PC to Mac?
    The price penalty for a Mac in a laptop is much less or zero.  The newer Windows high end include a touch screen for Win 8, which is expensive and not allowed in Mac.  The new high end, high ...
  • All good suggestions.  A few more unconventional suggestions.  Central coast.  Santa Barbara, then Santa Ynez Valley for large oaks and vineyards (and wine tasting).  La Purisima Mission, a ...
