    Pixel 3a. Mainly use it in "Night Sight" mode for extra quality.

    leslie reacted to Geoff CB in EOSHD C-Log does not use full range in histogram   
    EOSHD LOG is a cheat to get a similar curve as CLOG, it does not give you the same level of benefit that native CLOG gives you.
    As for the histogram, does the camera have the option to change the data range in video?

    leslie got a reaction from Emanuel in Mavic Mini 2 unveiled   
    I just got a mavic 2 pro. So its its a bit like the empire strikes back 😉
    done a few flights, getting used to it.  Seen a few vids where somebody lifts things with the mavic so i  ordered an accessory that mounts a gopro to the top. Darth better be careful or he'll find himself replaced. not so sure about the little anamorphic adapters for the gimbal, which is why i'm trying out the gopro first.

    leslie got a reaction from Emanuel in What anamorphic lens for Osmo Pocket?   
    i suspect its an early preproduction ulanzi or maybe a different brand. From the vids i have watched, the demo units had warmer flares with muted blue flares. The production version just have the intense blue flare. Which is kinda sad. Their not a true 1.33 either only 1.15. So that's something to be aware of.  Apparently marketing got it wrong somehow 🙄    This dude talks about it at about 4.13 of this  video https://youtu.be/OYHFwpWCna0

    after my reply i thought about the wind buffeting also. i live in a high wind corridor pretty much right on the edge of the great dividing range. I have to go into town later i'll take the gopro and perform some rather unscientific tests. I think there's some grounds here for some collaboration and group therapy 🙂

    For anyone looking to have this functionality (and a bit more) without having to buy a specific new gimbal (or any gimbal for that matter), our AFX module launches a week on Monday.
    I'm absolutely not going to give the game away before then and say that it also supports manual lenses.
    Absolutely not going to spoil that surprise.

    leslie got a reaction from noone in Canon 24mm f/2.8 STM for Phots & video (lowlight especially)   
    that definitely low light. Google low light photography   find some images you like and emulate them. If you have a tripod, i'd use it. I've heard it said that experience isn't something you get until just after you need it. take lots of photos, develop a style, maybe even stack a few images see how that goes if your doing a lot of evening photos. 
    i dont have that lens, no idea how it performs  for photography or video . I guess all you can do is try it. Try it in every conceivable variation thats the only way to learn a lens and whether it can work for you or not. There's a multitude of lenses out there. Some lens have an almost cult like following,  others have yet to be tried and not everyone  makes a record of how it performs. 
    as a video based forum a bunch of stills sometimes may not garner a lot of response.  
    Magic lantern does amazing things for canons video abilities, not forgetting  photos either. Not sure if its available for the 800d however and its definitely got a learning curve. but with a canon i'd lean towards ml for video work.  By the way welcome to the forum.

    leslie got a reaction from noone in Long lenses, who uses them? Which do you like?   
    not sure how i missed this thread until now. 
    However i'm quite literally throwing the "cat" amongst the pigeons.  One canon fd 500mm mirror lens, found a mint one out of japan and couldn't help myself. For a good price as well nearly had to pinch myself. Main issue is my tripod isn't up to the task. Too much play sadly. Thats an issue i'll have to address shortly. This kinda fulfills some deep unconscious desire from a bygone era. Probably doesn't make a lot of sense an f8 mirror lens, but what the hell. I have set up a bird feeder out the front, the 500mm should bring them in a little closer 😀

    I love my ancient 300mm 2.8 Tamron adaptall. 
    Not the best 300 2.8 made but probably the lightest (and there were NO bad 300 2.8s ever).   Still over 2 kilos though!
    Even so, as I get older I have to seriously think about if I am going to take this lens anywhere (usually walking and usually will have it in a backpack).
    It is getting close to the time when I will have to give it away (to a relative) but maybe not for a year or three yet.     I just might have to limit it to trips to the zoo and festivals now and for video, just outdoor music festivals on a tripod.
    My old Fuji superzoom will have to do when i want a long lens otherwise if not now, soon enough.
    I have had a few others over the years but this old Tamron 2.8 has been with me across systems for must be going on twenty years.   I still have an old Tamron zoom to 350mm but none have been to my liking more than this old Tamron 2.8
    IF I had the time and the room, this would be my first choice as a portrait lens most of the time too (though being MF, a lot of misses for every hit).
    I can not afford a newer better lens but this will do me fine for now (would love a 200 f2).
    I nearly got a Nikon 300 f2 many years ago, glad I didn't as that would be too heavy for me now (though might have made a tidy profit selling it).
    I have had several greyhound racing pics in a national (Australian) Greyhound racing paper and Australian football pics in a regional daily from it and even though i dropped it a few feet onto a hard ground that made it very hard to remove or replace the adaptall, still works fine for me.
    A couple of zoo shots from today (glad i took it instead of the Fuji superzoom).
    The Kangaroo shot was also with a bit of clearzoom for more "reach".
    What longer lenses are you using?

    call me an atheist but i'd hope for a thicc bone density xray, other than that i think its all bit naff. Maybe people are trying to carry something over from the days of film.  You remember film surely ? when every home home had one of these (ok maybe not every home 🤔).
    My point being digital and film are fish swimming in different oceans as much as people like to emulate film with digital. I hold grave concerns when it come to technical terms of film being applied to digital. it all sounds a  little suss to me.  I'm normally a fan of the things you do here on the forums kye, but i cant help but wonder if your not overthinking it this time.

    one of these beasties then. To be honest my kit lens doesn't get a lot of love. 9 time out of ten there is a m42 adapted to the canon or on the p4k. Although some years ago i did buy a katzeye microprism screen for the  canon kinda shows you i tend to like my mf  😀 I also find mf on the 18-55 a bit ordinary even a touch rough. the af works fine however. i just dont use it much.

    you may bring one attendant each. You can toss a coin over who gets full frame and who gets the equivalent in not full frame. Period attire is mandatory. Should make for an interesting short.

    I'm bucking the trend, i have my eye on low shutter count mark two, e-m10. Mostly for the remote port so i can wire up a remote shutter, The mark 3 e-m10 is tempting but no remote shutter port, Wifi or bluetooth shutter control isn't good enough / suitable for me or my project.

    i like the concept and if your out and about "documenting" everything, family included, then your mind is at least kept active and your video skills as well i guess. 
    i had a mate pass away nearly a year ago. he was into photos and video as well. Last time i was around at his place i helped the youngest daughter with his old video gear, got it sorted and running, now the family has memories and treasures and in some ways (he will live on)  at least for his family and thats the important thing i think. there may be no financial benefit but there's more to life than money.
