  • Amazing. Were these handheld "move manually" stacks, in-camera stacks, focus rail? Thanks, Dan
  • Replied in R7 educate me
    The main reason to use electronic shutter is to reduce sound for getting close to skittish animals, or to be inconspicuous in crowds. I'm still waiting for my R7 (sigh) but have extensive ...
  • Agree with all of the above. Rent the RF 100-500. While you can go for the Tamron 150-600 or equivalent, it is a vastly inferior lens, both in terms of sharpness and AF. Since you are renting, ...
  • Replied in R7 SOC Jpegs
    That's not my understanding of the physics. In particular, if you scaled up the R7 sensor to a full frame sensor at the exact same pixel density, circuitry, etc (just more pixels and a bigger ...
  • Replied in R7 SOC Jpegs
    If you're going to be shooting a lot at 16000 ISO, don't bother getting an R7. It has four times the pixel density of the R6, so you can expect roughly two stops poorer ISO performance than the ...
  • We must not be reading the same graph. As I see it on the above, the R7 (2022) has about a half-stop lower read noise than the M6 Mark II (2019) and about a stop lower read noise than the 90D ...
  • The EF 70-300 lens is not a particularly sharp lens. Even without a TC, the RF 100-500L will blow it away at 300mm. With a 2x TC you will lose 2x more sharpness (or more); AF will get dicey; and ...
  • This all looks great. One stop less low-ISO read noise than 90D. Slightly better dynamic range than 90D. World class autofocus. Yep I'm happy over here. Dan
  • I'd be happy with them just making more R7's... gotta clear that backlog. Hopefully my body ordered a month ago, gets to me by the end of summer. Dan
  • I find such posts amusing. R6 has one quarter the pixel density (almost exactly) as the R7. If you like the R6 so much, I suggest taking the inner 7.8 megapixels of the R6 (20.1 megapixels / 1.6 / ...
  • I suggest visiting the Retouching forum.
  • LOL. Many professionals are dumping effusive praise over this lens (RF 100-500L). I can start lining them up here if you'd like. Dan
  • Um. It's a Canon APS-C with IBIS and world-class AF at a very reasonable price point and > 10 FPS. I've literally been hoping for this for a decade. Yeah I pre-ordered and yeah I'm excited. Luckily ...
  • Definitely this -- although if shooting RAW, the overall white balance can be tweaked afterwards. A flash would have helped a lot here. When faced with something like this, I use the Portraiture ...
  • "It depends". I second the general sentiment that if this is not a "favor for a good friend" type of situation and you are instead being hired to do a stranger's formal wedding, you may want to ...
  • There are two EF 100mm f/2.8 macro lenses; the older non-L and the newer L IS. I have the older non-L, without IS. It is tack sharp but very slow AF and no IS. I have bought the RF 100/2.8L Macro ...
  • In my opinion, Topaz software changes noticeably from one release to the next. But it is not always for the better. Some things tend to improve while other errors are introduced. I have had any ...
  • Silly me. I never answered your question. To me the answer is obvious. They are your photos, your art. You (and everyone else) should apply whatever processing you want to your photos, whatever ...
  • Jestertheclown, I find this whole discussion hilarious. Yours was actually a sane response. Everyone else is yelling past/through/over each other. It should be obvious that adjustments during RAW ...
  • Sharpening won't introduce noise if there is little noise before sharpening. However, sharpening a noisy image will of course dramatically emphasize the noise. Similarly, lifting shadows won't ...
