12 posts in this topic

ooops,wait a second,

Oh ya,that's better.

Don't be bashin my elph! that sucker goes everywhere with me,and has seen alot of hard road and still brings it!

As for the 50,it's doin a blizzard type thing outside,so all I can do is shoot at the wall. I am impressed at the ISO 6400 shots! Even 1600 Raw with no noise reduction looks fabulous when the image has alot of color.

When the kids go to bed I plan on doin the micro AF adj. to all the lenses. I was pleased to see the camera will store 3 seperate AF adjustment settings for 1 lens! Example: 70-200 2.8,70-200 2.8+1.4xTC,70-200 2.8+2xTC. I didn't know it was capable of that.

Maybe tomorrow I can drive around and poke it out the window at a bird.

Ya know mariner, it's people like you that make it so darned tempting to spend money on something I don't need. Between you and Ken, I don't know who's butt I'd like to kick the hardest. whistle

I will do my best X.

Ken,I like it already! I just shot this image @ISO 12,800!

jpeg,NR std, I left the exif in it. This is direct from the camera. Sure,there is some noise,but I don't know why folks bash the 12,800 so bad. It would work in a tight pinch. I could make nice 4x6 or 5x7 maybe even 8x10's if you didn't crop very much.

The 12,800 ISO shots I have seen posted online look way worse than mine. I wonder if Canon put something else in the soup on these recent 50D's? Firmware? Who cares I guess,I'm very happy!

NICE! my old camera looked about the same, It went everywhere with me especially in the back compartment in my motorcycle (silly me never took the case in case of quick need)it was pretty beaten up.

The pic you took reminded me of that e bay pic where you could see the guys reflection in the mirror but he didn't have any clothes on LMAO...

Congrates MM! You are discovering why one needs to take on line reviews and people talking about the camera who don't own it with a grain of salt. I do think the latest firmware made some improvement in some of the high ISO capabilities. Have fun with the camera, I have no doubt you will enjoy it!

Have fun with the newbie, MM. Great camera. I second Dan's sentiments 100 percent. I've made some prints from the high ISO test images I shot with the 50D (using in-camera NR), and they look WAY better than when I pixel peep the images on my screen.

After reading some of those online reviewers, I'd swear they and I are using two different models of camera or something.

Looks that way to me too. I sent a couple full frame 12,800iso to a friend last night and he printed them 16x20 just for fun and he said they looked fine.

Something is going on because I have been watching the "d" review site and the folks that are buying 50's now are posting images that are making some of the early buyers scratch their heads. Ultimately,the ones scratching their heads admit to not yet updating the firmware.

It won't make anyone a better photographer,just a good tool.

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
