vmarks' recent activity

  • I had the same problem when using the viewfinder, I think it was my nose or something touching the screen. I changed to "relative" and made only "top right" area sensitive, which fixed the jumping ...
  • I liked the treatment I got from PureRAW (DeepPrime) which is fully automatic, but it made my RAW files 3x the size - and difficult to understand what corrections were applied. I was able to match ...
  • This is wise counsel. I had the EF 35 1.4L (I) and never really fell in love with it either. I got a lot more use out of my trusty old 50mm 1.4 - sold both of them recently, and picked up the RF ...
  • Hi, Where do you find these MTF charts? Could you please share a link? -vmarks
  • This one also looks good (and actually leverages PD over USB C) https://www.amazon.com/Modular-Battery-Charger-Adaptive-Charging/dp/B09DCQHB6N/ref=sr_1_13?dchild=1&keywords=xtar+camera+battery+char ...
  • This looks like what you're looking for. USB C, adaptive 3a charging over PD or QC, dual or quad batteries. I don't have experience with it, but will be getting one myself now I've found it. https: ...
  • Yeah, I believe this is correct. The additional pins seem to be labelled on some chargers as "T" and "C". T is presumably the temperature readout, allowing smart chargers to go full-bore or back off. ...
  • I want this too for day-long shooting events. Two sets of batteries, one in camera, the other charging from power bank in my camera bag until needed for swapping. Neweer, Ravpower and most of the ...
  • Thanks very much. That's very clean indeed, even at 100%. I downloaded the free trial of DxO and tested it out on my RAW files last night. It does a great job on NR. It also seems to adjust WB and ...
  • Could you please post a before/after shot that shows the noise reduction? Is DxO Photolab really that much better than LR for indoor sports? I recently started shooting indoor volleyball with R5 & ...
  • Hi, Following the advice here and the "How to Shoot Volleyball" link, I tried again at my daughters team training. A couple of examples here: https://vmarks.smugmug.com/Family/2021-OctoberHoliday/i ...
  • OK, so I know this is a really old thread. I just picked up an R5 today, and was doing a few test shots to make sure I was OK shooting flash. I was very confused just like you... the camera ...
  • [deleted] Yeah, well said Sir! -vm
  • I loved it for weddings too, especially candid available light shots with pushed Tri-X... Agree 100%. I was one of the people hoping for the 3D. Also agree the 5D IV is kind of the digital version ...
  • I was looking at on JPG files on screen (and not at 100%). Of course 45MP will have more detail, but that doesn't necessarily translate to superior IQ - to my taste anyway. Your point about waiting ...
  • I think the R3 is a great camera, just more of a specialist tool than I was hoping for. Nostalgia for the EOS "3" misplaced, that's all! -vmarks
  • Created discussion thread An EOS 3 users reaction to the R3
    Hi, Back in the day I used to shoot at EOS 3 film body and loved it. The thing felt blazingly fast and the viewfinder massive and bright. I really liked the ergonomics, it really was a joy to use ...
  • Thanks very much, I will try all of these ideas. And I'll take along my 100-400L and 135 2L (EF lenses, I am not on RF mount yet despite this forum. Waiting to see how the R3 looks...) -v
  • OK :-) The ones I left in color I did so for that reason, I felt those "worked" in color. That's kind of what I did. The venue is really tight and the viewing space is <1m from the side of the ...
  • I'm shooting in an unofficial capacity as one of the dad's... my daughter only just turned 12, so the team are not super professional yet. They do train hard, but unfortunately only get to play a ...
