  • I would probably get kicked out for coughing then instead of the shutter click. I don't know  that I would dare use the 75mm lens as the photographer who photographed the events last year had ...
  • I have been reading everything I can on the new D750 and really got excited about this camera. However, I just watched a video about the camera, and just before the end of the video, the fellow in ...
  • I understand what you are saying, and as a result of this shoot I am looking for a better camera for this type of work. I was concerned about too shallow a DOF if I opened up the aperture, and once ...
  • Rob, I seldom post my images with the EXIF data. In Photoshop I save the images "for the web" which apparently strips the EXIF data from the image. As an example, the EXIF data for the first image was:
  • I hate showing these images, but they will give you an idea of the problem I was having. I was trying to focus on the face in each of the shots. These were some of the better shots from the event. ...
  • I do have 9 grandchildren, so maybe I can get them to run around. Also, candy is less expensive than beer.
  • I expect this is how I will operate if I get the 5D Mark III. I will also use my E-M1 as a backup for the 5D Mark III on important shoots.
  • With all the different measurements there are for cameras these days, I sure wish there was a measurement which would quantify the ability of a camera to focus under different lighting conditions. ...
  • I'm sure you are probably correct. I should change my shooting technique when shooting action. I have stayed away from both C-AF and shooting bursts. I guess it seemed to me like cheating a little.
  • Yes, we have to admire some of the old film photographers. They were able to produce some fantastic images that some of us could not shoot with today's cameras.
  • Thanks for you input. Even at my old age, I think my reflexes are pretty good. In the past year, I have shot hundreds of images of ballet dancers jumping. Of course, these were done in my studio ...
  • I'm sorry that I missed your point. I understand what you are saying as the 5D Mark III is pretty old, as cameras go. The reason I brought this subject up is because I am meeting with the Chair ...
  • From what I have read, the 7DmkII will have a cropped sensor. I don't know if this is true, but I want my next camera to have a FF sensor.
  • I doubt that C-AF would have worked on the job here I had all the problems. The reason I say this is because as soon as I would click the shutter, the dancer was completely out of the frame, and I ...
  • I wish I had done just as you suggested for the shoot where I had so many problems. Hindsight is always good. I certainly could not have done worse with manual focus over the way I shot this job. H ...
  • While I liked reading this article, I still don't understand why he shifted from the 5D Mark III to the E-M1, and now to another new camera. While the 5D Mark III is larger and heavier than the ...
  • Better image quality over the E-M1 is not the most important point of getting the 5D Mark III. I am more interested in a better S-AF.
  • What I am looking for is the best, fastest and accurate auto focus.  I don't have an immediate need, but hopefully will soon. I guess I could wait a little while to see if they have an upgrade for ...
  • Yes, I am old, bot only on the outside. I can afford to buy the 5D Mark III, but don't like to spend the money without making an informed decision. I have very few regrets in life because of the ...
  • Henry, You have hit the nail on the head. The reason for this thread was to find someone who owns both the E-M1 and the 5D Mark III who could point out any reason why I should not purchase the 5D ...
