I have a Canon but the same rules apply

For Canon 1080p video clips canot be longer than 12 minutes due to the 4GB size limit in the FAT32 file system of DSLRs ( need to confirm the 12 min for 1080p on mine )

And a secondary issue is overheating processors

thanks for the answer KK, makes sense.... now on to getting my head around the AF functions of this camera. 3D tracking? I'm old school in that I set my AF point and focus. back to the camera...

Dslrs have buffer over-run issues so they're limited to 20 or 30 mins for protection of data.  There are firmware hacks out there but why would you!

Is that f1.8?

Answer from GeekKopi: 52.5mm equivalent at f2.2??? How's my math?  The DOF looks a bit deeper than that....?

yes ts a 52.5mm equivalent, f-stop was at 1.8, the DOF would look deeper due to the smaller sensor.

i thought long and hard about the full frame 35mm but comparing apsc/full frame to medium/large format, they are not so different :P (i keep telling myself)

Yes!  The big difference between the Full Fram and Crop Sensors (I own both) is that pictures with the Full Frame Cameras are much, much more expensive  :rofl:

In all seriousness I had a 1.3Megapixel Ricoh camera back in the 90s that took wonderful 6x4s.  A great picture is the difference, not the format or the brand.  Except Canon.  Their Pro stuff is awesome but I have great difficulty using their mid-range gear.  SHOTS FIRED in the Nikon thread!!!

Here's a another test pic - my Staffy in the park yesterday. Couldn't get her to sit still so I had one hand on the camera and one on her collar.

35mm, 1/640, f1.8, iso100

Animals are tricky.  Black and white poodles in the same shot is quite a pretty challenge according to my wife.

Coincidentally, today I need to take some shots of a horse to send in with an application for breed registration, so it will be interesting to see how it goes.

Expecting it to be a lot less stressful than photographing the wife's dogs...they just wont stay still for a second  ;D

Warning however, I will be using a canon ;)

Post processing:

For those of you that are not using Lightroom CC for post processing but instead are using standalone Lightroom 6.1.x you will notice that the dehaze presets are not available. I found a link to a developer that has put together these presets to be added manually to Lightroom and they are based on the same algorithms for those found in the newest CC version.

Hi Brett.

Quick question.

I don't usually use auto ISO but when I'm lazy and want to shoot with it on in P-mode I'm trying to figure out how to limit the upper end. I want to set a limit of 400 and if I need anything above that then I manually set it.

I've looked into the menu but somewhat confused. Maybe it can't be done?

Yep, easy... There is a menu setting which lets you set that under shooting menu from memory.  I've set my upper limit to 6400 in Auto because it's the equivalent noise-wise of iso400 on the D70.  I'll check it tomorrow if you can't find it before then.  Shot another concert tonight with the D750 and the 24-120F4.  Boring lens and camera... Every shot a stunner.  Where are the idiosyncrasies.  The D800 has them??  I switched to a 180F2.8 Nikon prime for some fun when photos of the kids were becoming pedestrian.  Now that's a funky piece of kit!

Thanks Brett. I found the menu.
It took me a little while to understand the setting.

I've got my iso max limit to 6400 and the default to 100 so the auto iso can choose up to 6400 if 100 is not suitable.

Post some pics up of the concert.
I'm hanging to take the camera out for a spin. It's been a busy week.

Hey mate, I can't post pics online because there were kids in the concert.  I'll find a couple of other pics I've taken over the week.

hey there GK, I've never wanted to subscribe to the whole CC thing - do you know if you can still download standalone Lightroom & if so, where do you access it [they seem to have hidden it pretty well on their site]?

hi admin

You download the CC version then apply your product key during installation to register it. Once it's registered it becomes a standalone Lightroom 6.x.

thanks GK, will check it out [not sure how to get the product key' but assume it's one of those 'follow the bouncing ball' things]...


Except Canon.  Their Pro stuff is awesome but I have great difficulty using their mid-range gear.  SHOTS FIRED in the Nikon thread!!!

haha, I'm Nikon too Brett, but surprised there have been no Canon-users taking you on over that one!!  :stir

Not sure if you class an EOS 70D as a mid range camera Brett
I am a great believer in using appropriate lenses to capture a great photo ( a plain old 50 mm can surprise )
