Re: Not your ordinary sun spot!! (850arrrsaylikepirate)

Thanks for the link Joe - I see he made that exposure with new Canon 5D (the MkII). The old classic 5D is no slouch and I see that the upgrade does just as fine a job. Talk about timing on a shot!<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>850arrrsaylikepirate</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Check this out, very awesome:<p> <A HREF="http://legault.club.fr/atlantis_hst_transit.html" TARGET="_blank">http://legault.club.fr/atlantis_hst_transit.html</A> <p>The timing had to be spot on!!<br></TD></TR></TABLE>

Re: Not your ordinary sun spot!! (sapearl)

He started taking exposures 2 seconds before the estimated time of the crossing. <p>Between my 1Ds and 5D I am pretty much set and won't be upgrading anytime soon. Though the 5D Mk II does look sweet!

It certainly does <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> . Problem is I'd have to start buying more supplemental hard drives for storage; those RAW files are huge. I'm only printing on 13x19 paper so I really wouldn't see any difference in resolution.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>850arrrsaylikepirate</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">.....

Re: Not your ordinary sun spot!! (850arrrsaylikepirate)

True, how very true - but both my 5D's are working too well right now to justify the expenditure. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>850arrrsaylikepirate</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Ahhh but you can crop like a mofo with that many pixels!!</TD></TR></TABLE>

Re: Not your ordinary sun spot!! (sapearl)

Even with 13 mega pixels I can crop a ton, I can't imagine what 21 can do.<p>

You have to do a bit of scrolling through all the posts, but the folks on the POTN forum have been putting up samples of their 5D2 output:<p><A HREF="http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=608311&highlight=5D2+images&page=11" TARGET="_blank">http://photography-on-the.net/...ge=11</A><p>There are even some links to other gallery sites with crops that you suggest <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> .<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>850arrrsaylikepirate</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Even with 13 mega pixels I can crop a ton, I can't imagine what 21 can do.<p></TD></TR></TABLE>

Re: Not your ordinary sun spot!! (850arrrsaylikepirate)

Hours? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> How about years - I've been hooked there since 2005. There's an absolute wealth of info on that site that's helped me avoid a lot of aggravation as well as solve problems.<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>850arrrsaylikepirate</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Thanks for the link, I can see myself being sucked in for hours.</TD></TR></TABLE>

Re: Not your ordinary sun spot!! (sapearl)

Yeah I meant just that thread. <p>I can see years for the entire site for sure.<p>It is definitely a sweet site, I am surprised I have never seen it till you mentioned it a short while ago - thanks!

Re: Not your ordinary sun spot!! (850arrrsaylikepirate)

Oh, I knew what you meant <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> .<p>The site is pretty formidable. I'd shot film for decades and was a late comer to digital, draging my heels as long as possible. I stumbled across the forum quite by accident while googling the basics of what I'd need for me transition. <p>I'd say about 99% of all questions either get answered or commented upon within minutes of posting. There's everything from equipment reviews, to photoshop tips and tutorials, image critiques, ethics discussions..... if you can think of it, there's probably already been a discussion on it, or at least a question. - Stu<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>850arrrsaylikepirate</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Yeah I meant just that thread. <p>I can see years for the entire site for sure.<p>It is definitely a sweet site, I am surprised I have never seen it till you mentioned it a short while ago - thanks!</TD></TR></TABLE>
