Dave Seeley's recent activity

  • I went through exactly this process, and decided on the adapted (control ring) EF85L f1.4 IS.  Love it.  and with recent autofocus and IS.
  • Perhaps not that useful, but for me, the rf24-105 is much more useful to me than the ef version I had...  sharper, and maybe better color.  It is my travel lens of choice for sure, and a solid ...
  • Do it! More rumors about the high mp R coming this year, but life is short For me, I actually CAN see the difference in the resolution of my 5Dsr, and my R5. Not much, but zooming to pixel def you ...
  • There was talk when they released the rf28-70, of doing an f2 holy trinity....   Not sure if that talk came from Canon execs or others speculating
  • I've never seriously considered jumping from the Canon ship. For me, learning curve is the huge issue. Muscle memory. All other differences seem minor by comparison. I'm sure other systems are ...
  • Replied in B&H Photo
    Thinking that something must be wrong. B&H is my go-to.  I ordered an R5 on the first day it was listed, but then cancelled when covid knocked my business down to nada...   I reorder on November ...
  • THANK YOU I didn't scroll down and see it
  • For you my friend....   something NEW...  so you can add to your blogosphere.  You've threatened to re-purchase in the past, but have you ever?  Maybe keeping your toe in certain forums here will ...
  • I've gotten used to using my control ring for exposure compensation on my R, but hate that the R5 requires that I hold the shutter button at half mast to use it.  Assuming that is a guard against ...
  • I do understand that the raw is only available at 8K because it needs to use the whole sensor rather than processor intensive downsampling for 4K raw... What I'm asking is, does Canon provide any ...
  • Yes to title question... I bought the ef85L f1.4 after looking hard at the rf L version... half the price and w IS. I use the control ring adapter. I am considering the ef100-400L because I already ...
  • If no, are they only viewable w major editing apps, re Premiere, FCP, DaVinci?
  • Do you need to use Canon Digital Photo Professional to pull the stills from the raw footage?  Or are you saying that that has to be done in your video editing software after applying the Canon Log? ...
  • If my intent is to extract best quality stills, is 10 bit, cLog and RAW going to give me flat images that need to be processed? Thanks for your advice.
  • My EF 24-70L 2.8ii has taken 90% of my pics in studio (5Dii-5Diii-5Dsr). A truly great lens, but I found it oddly awkward / imbalanced on my R. My studio shooting is in limbo during ...
  • I highly recommend the adapted ef16-35L f4 is.  On the R6, it should blow away the M11-22 with the ff benefits in low light and bokeh. funny, my R ended up being MY M5ii
  • Given your semi-pro blogger status, I'd think that that is a necessity for you, and recommend that you buy both, and return one, chalking up the restocking charge to research.  If you decide to ...
  • And that's where I came out on it really...  Not a big enough con to worry about given the upgrades I mentioned above.  Ibis in available light interior shooting will allow lower iso's and I do ...
  • Coming from the great 5Dsr myself.  The RF 24-105L feels great on the R and R5, and IQ is substantially better than the first EF version which I own as well, and should have sold a few years back. ...
  • You know my situation pretty well, so clearly no competition for me on this particular choice... R5... and I did just get mine 30 days after ordering it at B&H. I did the Payboo credit card system ...
