On photo Annabel van Westerop by Tony Filson Photography in tvstaff's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

Taken with a broken or soft focus 1DXMKII. After extensive post this is the best I could get. I posted to show the lack of definition.

Nothing is sharp with the 1DXMKII. Real disappointment.

I wish Adobe would update rendering to work properly with my Canon 1DX MKII and my Canon lenses. How about fixing the basics before you move on to FLUFF!

In reply to:

webmartians: Machs nix on preferences, although the black theme does seem to make colors "pop."

While you're at it, please watch the levels of JavaScript inclusions (pagefair, facebook, twitter, pintrest...) and their inclusions ...and their inclusions. Each level adds another layer of slowness for loading pages- a real problem with mobile devices and their slower connections.

Best!

I agree. The advertising, pop ups, Java code, flash, cookies, rolling video.... too much. This site is about photography. Adversities should keep their ads within continuity of DPR by using that medium to advertise their products. For video provide a link so DPR pages don't slow down. I REALLY like DPR and want the pages to remain code, cookie and pop-up free as much as possible while letting DPR make as much money as possible from their ads.

Look beyond the words... look at the photograph... pretend for a moment you're a photographer !

Are they backwards compatible? Can I now fire my 580 EX using one of their receivers and a ST-E3-RT ? If so we can now group our 600 EXRt's with our 580 EX's?????

In reply to:

tvstaff: I must say, after reading this review I'm confused and it's disappointing.
1.) I hear negatives on focusing; I never shoot action sports with my f/2.8 300's or 400's or f/4 200-400 with ITR. I've always known it degraded things the way I shoot sports. As a sports shooter ITR is not something I use
2.) Video is of no use to me at all. I don't shoot video and I can't believe how a PRO would use this to shoot video, This is not something I will use.
3.) Shooting in manual mode I need to go into a menu to adjust exposure? If this is true... this is INSANE

The modalities of ITR vs. Dual Pixel vs. Martian Banana Eyeballs... All I know is when I turn off iTR on my 1DX using my best Canon lenses; my fast moving action shots come out much better. If my pictures came out better with iTR, I would use it.... However noting that Case 5 and Case 2 tend to work best for my style of shooting, it seems contrary to iTR all together...

4:) Having a CFAST and CF card was stupid. Now we get back to video... I don't want it and having two different types of cards for a sports shooter to have to work with in the field is CRAZY, Gone are the days I could take two of the same cards... one to me one to the client. Gone are the days I could put a bunch of cards in a pocket, pop out the two that are full and blindly pop two in. Gone are the days of not worrying about destroying pins, readers and hand the wrong card to someone. This just makes no sense to not offer the same dual card as Nikon did.

5.) I'm wondering if I made a mistake pre-ordering this camera????

On photo NYFW Designer Nina Gleyzer | Photograph by Tony Filson in tvstaff's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

The final edit of this portrait is stunning. I'm sorry I can't post it here. Much care was taken in cleaning this up. Nina Gleyzer is talented and "different". I look forward to shooting her models properly next year with a camera to capture more detail in the 50MP range to bring in line with http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/7456096105/photos/3394748/model-isla-marie-for-designer-nina-gleyzer-instyle-nyfw-tony-filson-photographer-nyfw

Beautiful work

I won't let this set a standard for "everyone". At times clients know I shoot with a 1DX and ask I shoot one card in RAW and the other in JPEG. Their editors use the quickest files, best files for their needs at the time. No doubt as the files are archived in their CMS they want the raw files to preserve their historical files and in the future be able to manipulate those files better. As editing software improves, what was just marginal could become a good file. I don't see how workflow is improved with JPEGS unless you don't want the enhanced latitude? How does have less options improve anything? A person who knows what they are doing cam change the data on a RAW or JPEG file with ease. The issue here could be journalistic integrity vs. workflow ;)

Wow faster than my 1DX by a mile!

In reply to:

tvstaff: I submitted a picture of a beautiful woman. I guess it depends on the "Big Boy".... Beautiful women have been "Big Boy" toys since the beginning of time. I guess alex326 can't understand the concept as he deleted my entry! Enjoy your plastic toys! <ROFL>

For a group of people that are supposed to be "creative" and open minded about art and free interpretations of concepts... you're pretty closed minded. I'm not saying you have to be the most free thinking or liberal people in the world but when you disagree with an artistic thought or work(s) and then inject your personal feelings it's pretty "closed minded". Censoring art, writing, thoughts.... very draconian. "Plastic faces and bodies?" where the heck is that coming from? A good portion of our industry celebrates beauty and captures it.... When an Elephant calls a giraffe ugly... you need only look at the Elephant to understand why. But we're not Animals and we're supposed to have higher thinking than BEASTS. ;)
