In Topic: Canon 5D Mark IV announced

25 August 2016 - 06:51 AM

This could be a great feature for Macro, giving you functionality similar to Lytro.

 

"The 5D Mark IV also has some new tricks up its sleeve including Dual Pixel Raw, a nifty option that can prove useful in specific shooting scenarios. It works by recording two 30MP images, one from each of the 'left-looking' and 'right-looking' photodiodes at each pixel. Previous Canons have combined these two signals at each pixel, but Dual Pixel Raw gives you the option of keeping them separate. This results in a file that's twice as large, but one that allows for 'image micro-adjustment,' 'bokeh shift' and ghosting reduction" 


In Topic: A contribution to shark week (-;

Shark week has gotten much better from years ago.  They have many more conservation episodes and fewer sensationalized accounts of 'monsters' or 'man eaters'.   A lot more conservation minded from what I have seen this year.

In Topic: travel question, can I put my arms for my strobes in the carry on

I have never had a problem with all my camera, housing, strobes, arms, and even allen wrenches.  They may inspect them by hand, but once they see it is underwater photo equipment they usually just swab test it for explosive residue and let you go on.  Just be nice and patient and tell them how nice their uniforms look.  :)


In Topic: Trip Report: Egypt & The Red Sea Aggressor Photo Expedition

Great report and photos.  Nice to hear about a group of people who have not given in completely to fear and are still willing to still explore.
