  • Many thanks for your comments, Spotted Cow, I appreciate your time.  I have in any event sent my lens and Camera to Canon in Cape Town for a check and service, they both worked very hard in 2017!! ...
  • I have now sent my camera and lens to Canon in Cape Town for an evaluation and service as they both worked hard during 2017!!
  • I am going to do some test shots tomorrow as you suggest Ray. Not all the shots were oof, so hopefully the lens is ok. As I said elsewhere in this post I did not think that AI Focus could give ...
  • I will do some test shots tomorrow but as you say hopefully the lens is ok.  It was a good lesson to learn and thanks for all your advice.  I am generally very careful with my settings but it ...
  • Many thanks Steve, I used AI Focus by error as I always use AI Servo but I did not realise it could make such a large differences. All the athletes were moving at the time I started photographing ...
  • When the front runner went round the corner and the orange runner was in sight, is was in perfect focus. I was shooting in high speed continuous mode.
  • I post another image from yesterday's shoot.  The focus point is squarely on the front runner which is out of focus.  The runner behind is clearly in much better focus than the one in front. Could ...
  • Fortunately I was awake enough to not meddle with the RAW setting which is the mode I always shoot in!!  I do find the buffer of the 7DII filling up quickly when shooting RAW so I am trying to be ...
  • Many thanks for your comment Ed. Please read my response to Ray for my embarrassing experience!! Kind regards, Anton
  • Many thanks for your comment Ray.  Thank you for pointing out I was shooting in AI Focus!!  I feel embarrassed as I never shoot in AI Focus, always in Servo. I got up at 04h15 for this shoot and ...
  • You are probably correct JP4, but I wonder what could be the cause of the fairly consistent out of focus images I had this morning.  I gave some more information in my response to Steve's comments ...
  • Many thanks, Steve.  I was shooting in AI FOCUS, High Speed Continuous and spot metering because the light was poor and at times the athletes were in the shade.  The previous image as well as the ...
  • Created question thread Canon 70-200 2.8 II rear focus
    I attach an example of one of many such images I shot this morning.  It seems to me the lens is focussing behind the subject on which I placed the single focus point.  Is my observation correct? Th ...
  • Replied in Adobe Elements
    Dear Michel As I indicated previously, I did not have Elements, but I downloaded a trial version of the latest version 2018 last night and it is working very well with my RAF files.  I will now buy ...
  • Replied in Adobe Elements
    Lightroom 6 (the version I am using and which is non CC) does not read RAF (Fujifilm RAW) files.  I have LR 6 and PSCS6, Iridient and Affinity.  The latter two can read and process RAF files but ...
  • Replied in Adobe Elements
    I do not have Elements and I am looking for an application to process RAF files to TIFF/JPG files so I can process them in Lightroom 6.  I have Iridient but it is very slow, albeit being a very ...
  • Created question thread Adobe Elements
    I would like to find out if Elements can read/develope Fujifilm RAF files. Many thanks
  • Many thanks for all your information, Paige, I appreciate the trouble you went to.  As I said above, I was under the impression that my LR 6 and PS CS6 will not run under Sierra, but I am pleased ...
  • Many thanks, Paige.  I was not aware that LR5 and PS CS6 will run on Sierra.  I will now update to Sierra and keep my fingers crossed!! Best wishes Anton Gericke
  • Many thanks for your reponse, Mclewis. Will Lightroom 6 run on Sierra?
