  • for video it is noisy.  The IS is great for stills but not quite enough if you are using camera audio.  If you have external mic probably fine.
  • Two things drive me in this case.  What works and ergonomics.  I bought my first Canon camera in about 1968, the file FT camera.  So I was used to the Canon ergonomics and the Canon color etc.  So ...
  • where is the citation "according to Canon"
  • I'm a bit more ambivalent about it.  All software vendors release a combination of bug fixes and feature enhancements in new versions.  I have no problem with that.  The bigger question is whether ...
  • When I use option 1 it doesn't open the RAW file.  LR sends a psd file which On1 opens.  Any subsequent changes are in addition to whatever RAW adjustments you made in LR.  But as you point out it ...
  • yes but it is heavy.  I find the much smaller much cheaper 35 f2 to be my sweetspot for walkaround lens while traveling
  • the adjustments only live in the on1 sidecar if you develop it within On1 RAW.  If you use it as a plug in, then it collapses all the work into a psd file, and throws away all the work, which of ...
  • LR does not support layers.  The point is if you go back to the work in On1 RAW, that is where layers are supported.
  • Created discussion thread On1 RAW as LR plugin
    There seems to be much about On1 RAW 2020 that is very good.  But I have been trying to use it as a plug in to LR, which is an advertised usage.  But when using it that way, On1 flattens all ...
  • Replied in On1 2020
    I also have been using it as a plug in to LR6.  I also find that it has made quite significant progress from the earlier versions.  It has many of the tools of PS all within a non destructive ...
  • There is a very nice 24-40 f4 IS lens that could fill that bill.  I own that lens, but I confess that I rarely use it.  I use up to 35 with either the f2, or the 16-35 and then go to the 70-200.  ...
  • Canon Lens Review which I have found very reliable had this to say I also have this lens and it is my walk around lens.  It is reasonably light and small.   It is close to L quality in almost every ...
  • Welcome to the site.  It might depend on whether you are mostly shooting static objects or moving ones.  Stabilization only helps on static objects.  If it's mostly static objects, then you will ...
  • I have found by accident that if you do a local adjustment, say a radial adj or an adj brush, that if you add one on top of another, they seem to multiply the effect.  Might be worth experimenting ...
  • Created discussion thread On1 Raw 2020
    I have had the license for the various On1 RAW versions for a while, but haven't really felt like it was ready for use. However, I have recently been experimenting with it quite a bit and am ...
  • I don't know much about the Sigma lens but have the Canon lens.  It is terrific lens, focuses very well for sports, and is pretty sharp at 2.8  Two key advantages over the Sigma lens (1) range - I ...
  • Another way to have bracketing readily available is to set up the feature in the MyMenu tab. Any setting you use frequently can be set there so that they are all readily available. For example I ...
  • Created discussion thread On1 Raw 2020
    I have owned the various version of On1 although I have not used it much.  As much as anything I wanted a real competitor to Adobe.  Anyway I have been viewing Matt Kloskowskis' No Light no ...
  • To give a slightly different point of view.  IMHO the batteries are the least of your worries.  I carry extras and almost never have to change because I have drained it (GPS will drain it if left ...
  • You can teach old dogs new tricks, and the basics aren't really so different from film (I also started in film over 50 years ago).  The biggest difference is really in the post processing which ...
