On article Accessory Review: Peak Design Slide Camera Sling strap (139 comments in total)
In reply to:

noirdesir: What might be also of interest are so-called sling-type camera 'straps'. They differ from conventional straps in that the whole strap part touching your body stays fixed in space (and thus can be contoured and padded to achieve a great fit) while the camera can slide up and down the front part of the sling. When in rest, the camera also hangs automatically to your side instead of in front of you.

Examples are the Luma Loop and various BlackRapid straps:

http://www.blackrapid.com/products/straps

I also use a blackrapid. How does this strap prevent the bouncing when using as a sling? Plus i dont see a slide mechanism.

Mais78: "...a four stop push in Adobe Camera Raw and it's looking pretty good"

How do you measure stops in Camera Raw? The exposure slider does not use stops as a metric.

Is there also a relationship between the Shadow slider and f stops? ie +50 means half a stop? Thanks

Thanks. "Brightness control" you mean the Exposure control/slider?

Mais78: Giulio, are pics 5,7,8 crops? They don't look like they are 35mm.
Well done.

PS Have you considered Silver Efex Pro for your B&W?

I also only use Lightroom for color pics, but for B&W I really like Silver Efex

I went to the exhibition in London and was very underwhelmed. Especially in the professsional category. I guess Pros rather participate to the World Press Photo.

For canon users this method is super easy and very accurate

Mais78: Can you work non destructively in RAW or the final output is a tiff? In the latter case can you use this plugin as a smart layer just like Nik?

Just to be clear, once you have completed the editing the image goes back to Lightroom as...tiff/jpg? I assume not RAW.

Can you use Mcphun as a smart layer?

Mais78: How many of you guys push exposure so extremely in PP? If you need to do that maybe there is something wrong in the way you shoot pictures. Hope you shoot in real life and not just test charts.

@fatdeeman me and my camera love sunrise and sunset, when you see one just turn your back to the sun for amazing light. Leave shooting the sun rising and setting to the iphone shooters.
There is no PP or DR replacement for good lighting at time of shooting.

Just to reply a few of you that asked me questions...
- i dont need to defend nikin (btw i shoot Canon 6D and Oly EM5)
- never felt more DR on my 6D would make an average pic look great
- i dont shoot in midday sun, i dont need to handle that much light. Wake up before sunrise and that will solve your DR issues and inprove your photography more than a new camera can
- watch the works of Steve McCurry to understand how to handle light
- i dont use ND filters, or flash for that matter. Just natural light

Sigma has to step up the game and make it compatible with Canon lenses, otherwise i dont see many people trading compatibility with all EF mount lenses (ie Metabones) to get Eye AF only on Sigma lenses.

Scottelly: Rishi should wait. They'll probably make an adapter for Nikon mount lenses soon too.

I think it was the 35 f2.8, cant remember. Maybe i am spoilt by the 6d who can focus in total darkness. I would want the A7rii to focus well in low light also with a 24-70 f2.8

Thanks, indeed i have the 35 Art that i use on my 6d, and was wondering if i should expect same Af speed if used on A7RII with the Sigma adapter.
Still debating whether jumping to Sony makes sense. Did not try the Metabones but tried the camera with native 35mm and i was not impressed by AF speed in low light vs the 6D.

PS you say afc is faster than afs, what about accuracy? And battery life? Thanks!

Rishi what can you say about AF speed on A7RII? Does the Sigma 35mm 1.4 (EF mount) focus as fast as on a Canon (or Nikon) body? And faster than using Metabones? Thanks

Rooru S: And of course, nothing for A-mount. How long will it take for Sony to stop being cowards to their legacy customers?

@Rishi Are you sure it will work with Canon lenses? It says for Sigma lenses only on the side.
