Recommended Posts

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!

He's the one with the 500. He should have the most dents in his butt. gringrin

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.

    • I have a group of bachelor drakes on the pond this year.  The pond water level is high so there is flooded timber. A great combo for photography.                                  
    • Well I had a little project that we found after buying our camper used. It had a leak in the back corner which 3 other same type campers in our camp ground had in the same spot. I sealed the roof a few years ago but have not had time to tackle the soft floor in that corner. Spent one weekend ripping out to find out what I had and a 3 day weekend repairing it. Had to build boxes as new supports to tie into the good wood past the rotted area. Really glad there were two metal frame supports under that end as I could span them with the new wood. Re-insulated and put new plywood down and it's looks great. Now my wife doesn't have to worry about getting into her side of the bed without going through the floor!        
    • Well I guess I could close the loop on my water heater since I finally had time to look at it.     I haven’t pulled the element yet but have filled the water and run through everything with my meter.  I’m 99% sure it’s the element.  I have 120V to it and it Ohms out at 2.  I figure that’s the water giving me that reading since the elements should Ohm out at 10 or more.  Basic rule I learned in shop: Power to the load; load don’t work; load is broken.  Looks like a $15 part.   What I did enjoy learning is getting the propane part of the heater operational.  Never had that before since the wire harness was apparently always disconnected from the ignition module.  I plugged that in and she fired right up.   Now to get my sealants put on tomorrow and clean and lube the bumpout gaskets.  I bought some LED light bulbs to try also.  And time to get a bigger TV installed in the main living area.  That 13 inches just doesn’t cut it with my eyes anymore!
    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?
