David Pavlich's recent activity

  • Let's see....the OP asked about sample galleries.  I will assume that he meant photographs.  I would also assume that he wasn't concerned about video. The R5 overheats when recording video.  So, ...
  • With so much hand wringing about the R5 and heat, I have a question:  Can a camera be highly water/dust resistant like Canon's 5 series and 1 series and have a fan that actually cools the ...
  • It'll change. :-)  My son will be 40 in September.  He's a professional photographer in Baton Rouge.  Unfortunately, I'm in Winnipeg, but when we do get together, there is always at least one day ...
  • Phone cameras are very good...for what they are.  There's a lot of 'real photographers' that shoot BIF, motocross, football, baseball, critters at long distances, low light events, etc, etc.  ...
  • You'll probably assume room temperature before tone mapping goes away.  Too many people like it which is fine with me.  I like it AND it makes me money. David
  • If you look at my avatar, it's the front view of a Bristol Freighter.  I donated a 16X24 mounted print of it to a local air museum for their annual charity event a couple of years ago.  The silent ...
  • We all have our opinions.  You don't like nor would you have HDR tone mapped stuff hanging in your home or office.  However, others disagree with your assessment and do have my gawdy, tone mapped ...
  • Thanks for finding that.  You have a better grasp on the Search Function than I do.  I knew I had read posts here about this problem. David
  • Actually, my son borrowed the 2.8 version from a friend of his.  Him telling me that is what sparked my not so informed memory of the breaking lens.  He's a wedding/event photographer that is now ...
  • Strange thing.  I remember reading it on DPR, but I guess 'oldtimers' may have gotten the best of me. :-)  I do have the f4 version.  Matter of fact, it's on my camera sitting right next to me. ;-) ...
  • Yep....you caught me! It's a Russian plot to destroy Canon and I'm on the sharp end of the spear to make it so.  The fact that I've used Canon gear for a long time is just a ruse.  Good grief! If ...
  • I sell my prints, so being able to control the end product and get that print quickly is a major plus.  I also make my frames and mounts, so making odd sizes is a lot easier for me.  Matter of ...
  • I use Photomatix Pro 6.  Aurora is supposed to be very good, but I've not used it. David
  • I guess it depends on why it's done.  For mechanical things, it works very well.  One of my best selling prints is a 7 exposure HDR shot of a couple of diesel engine blocks.  AND, I print them on ...
  • I've received some good information from the 'Printing' section.  A ton of veteran printers there that have given me some good advice. David
  • Created discussion thread 16-35 f2.8 L II breaking?
    I seem to remember several years ago reading threads about the above lens breaking just in front of the mount ring.  Am I remembering this correctly?  I tried the search tool, but didn't find ...
  • Question:  Are you planning on buying a MkIII?  If so, then having that wonderful ability to shoot continuously is always there just in case you need it.  It's supremely 'practical' for a top ...
  • I have prints in my home that are about 5 years old or so, it's how long I've been making my frames, that are just fine. But I can't vouch for anything beyond that length of time. Here's the spray ...
  • This has been a good thread for me. I made my first canvas print about a week ago using a lesser cost Breathing Color canvas . I bought the less expensive stuff because I wasn't sure sure if ...
