  • Created discussion thread R5 - memory card size mismatching
    So I'm finally looking at updating my memory cards to get the most out of my R5.  At first I just ran one card (CFe) since it was much faster, and I had bought a handful to try out.  A (slow ...
  • Pretty sure this is the same desert spiny lizard I spotted last week, on the same boulder no less.
  • Replied in Little Owls
    I'll second that!  We've got burrowing owls here in AZ but I have yet to actually encounter any.  Really awesome critters, morseso, I think, thank most raptors. If I could get a shot half as good ...
  • After finding the limits of shooting wildlife and cropping in post to compensate for 70-200 reach, I bit the bullet on the 100-500. I've never had anything beyond 200mm (or I guess 320 back when I ...
  • Just for giggles, I tested the Angelbird reader and card on a shiny new Dell laptop that has Thunderbolt. The product description for the reader states "Compatible with Thunderbolt 3 and 4", which ...
  • I'm glad you registered/posted since all the crickets had me wondering if I was alone on this... Angelbird isn't exactly the most common brand out there, but I thought they'd be more known around ...
  • Okay, so Late last year, B&H ran a promo on Angelbird 1TB CFe cards, and I couldn't NOT jump on it.  $400 for 1TB (and a FAST card at that) is a really good cost/gb ratio. Unfortunately for me, I ...
  • Ended up going for the f/4. Aside from the 2.8 being out of stock at B&H (Payboo sales tax thing definitely make a difference!) the overall cost and weight differences won out. I almost never care ...
  • I'm glad ya mentioned this, as I was kinda considering hanging on to the EF as well, and for most of the same reasons...  it's a real tank of a lens.  And if I go for the RF f/4, it'd be an option ...
  • Aside from that extra bokeh, I'm not too sure I ever *truly* benefited from the current 2.8 honestly.  I don't shoot much of anything indoors, don't do portraits (or much of anything with people), ...
  • Created discussion thread 70-200 upgrade choice
    So I've had the EF 70-200 2.8L IS (original) since 2008, and it's been my favorite lens ever since.  Across my Rebel XT, XTi, 40D, 80D, EOS R, and now the R5 it's served well and been all over ...
  • Nothing in the post suggests exclusivity. Should the op have also written up instructions for premiere, fcpx, lumafusion, imovie, and windows movie maker? seems that resolve is mentioned because ...
  • wow.  i think it's safe to say this camera is soooooo wasted on me, lol. having recently moved out of adobe-land and into Resolve though, it's great to see some of the capabilities paired with the ...
  • of my two bodies, id trust my r5 in rain before the r, even if just based on reputation. that said, i had my R out when the tail end of a hurricane was washing over Phoenix, and I was atop a ...
  • FWIW, I agree something isn't right if that machine isn't handling playback of the source 8k raw files. I got my employer to get me the M1 iPad pro just to test that m1 chip out (and because ...
  • Sounds like someone else saw the email from B&H this morning. =) I can't comment on them at all, other than parroting what all the forums chatter and interweb posts say about them, but I've got a ...
  • A little bit of a tangent from the thread, but related... B&H has Angelbird 1TB and 2TB CFx cards on sale this morning. $400/$600 respectively. Pretty impressive cost/gig ratio, and apparently more ...
  • I've never felt the NEED for a battery grip on any camera body, despite still buying them for my 40D, 80D, and EOS R.  The R5 was kinda the last straw on paying for something that didn't have any ...
  • I can relate. The *nix (despite the heritage of how BSD came to exist in Mac land) made me smile broadly when I opened up a terminal and SSH'ed into a server of mine without needing to download ...
  • I grew up in Apple land with the II gs being standard issue in my elemtary school classrooms at the time, and eventually my own Mac Performa at home. Fast forward some time and my life (and ...
