Many continue to ask whether the Adobe Raw Converter in the new Photoshop CS is better than the Canon conversion used in Breezebrowser. While I have not tried it yet, the skinny has it that the Adobe conversions are much faster and that for MAC users, the image look great, but for PC users, there are dramatically unpleasant color shifts. We shall try a few soon and keep you advised.
Canon 600mm f/4 L IS lens with 1.4X II TC and Canon EOS 1Ds camera body. AI Servo AF with one of the left-hand sensors selected. ISO 250. Evaluative metering -1/3 stop: 1/1000 sec. at f/10.
Canon 100-400mm IS L lens at 130mm with Canon EOS 1D camera body. AI Servo AF/AFPS (45 point). ISO 3200. Evaluative metering -1 stop: 1/250 sec. at f/5.6.
Canon 600mm f/4 L IS lens with 1.4X II TC and EOS 1Ds camera body. AI Servo AF with central sensor (note that the sensor was not on the subject at the moment of exposure). ISO 400. Evaluative metering off of the relatively light sky set manually: 1/1000 sec. at f/6.3. (I teach folks to set their exposures manually in situations where the light is constant and the background is changing from moment to moment, here from sky to cottonwood tree to dark mountains to cornfields...)
This is one of my very favorite flight images from the trip. Realize of course that wind direction relative to light angle is what creates great conditions for flight photography. Best is when the wind is coming from the exact same direction as the light, but having the wind anywhere from behind you while looking down your shadow line is acceptable. Northwest winds in morning and southeast winds in the afternoon pretty much rule out making front-lit images of birds in flight...
Canon 600mm f/4 L IS lens with 2X II TC and EOS 1Ds camera body. One-shot AF with the central sensor (the only one available with the 2X TC and an f/4 lens).
ISO 250. Evaluative metering at zero: 1/400 sec. at f/8.
and great picture
making to all,
