Hi guys,
I just purchased an used EF 70-210 F4 ; it's my first long lens and I wanted to begin with something cheap.
Any of you have a Lightroom profile for it? It doesn't seem to be supported officialy by adobe.
Thx


Profiles can be overrated. And you can make your own.

Just bought a 5D "Classic" for 300 bucks. Looking forward to seeing what I can do with it while people argue in forums about dynamic range at ISO 100 in extreme daylight shadows, burst rates and 4k video

Close to a record, based on age: shot in 1988 on manual focus Canon T70 camera on Kodachrome 64 film, with FD300 f4 (not L version).

I saw two lionesses guarding a kill, when 5 hyenas approached, trying to drive the lions off. One lioness left, leaving this one.

5:1 odds, the lion looses, right? Wrong! The lion took a fast swipe with her paw at the lead hyena and missed. I thought this might happen again, so I manually focused on the lion, and manually set the camera high, 1/500 at f4. I preferred a sniper one click approach, rather than spray and pray (using the T70 2 frames per second).

This hyena barely escaped with his life! Notice the fist sized rock, kicked up, floating in air. After this, the 5 hyenas gave up and left! This picture was published in National Wildlife, ages ago. There were 4500 pictures submitted in that contest, and this was one of 11 pictures printed.

This is fun! I hope I figured out the upload/image link. Obsolete to me means the equipment was old at the time the photo was taken. Some pictures of big things and little things that fly, from the past month with a Rebel XT (12 years past release date) with 70-210mm f3.5-4.5 (27 years past release date). Combined that is 39 years past release date.

Big things:

























Little thing:

Very impressive photo, Don. You really nail it!

Absolutely amazing! Even with current autofocus and high fps camera's this would be hard to get right. Quite a photograph indeed.

Taken today with lowly 40D and nifty fifty 50 f1,8 II. I use this setup to take product photos for my shop and I just had to try this one on black canvas that I got last year, but I haven't gotten around to use it yet.

The lighting was a simple LED light, coming from the left side. Aperture was f11 at close focus distance, so the further bottle is very slightly OOF. Focusing was done manually via LiveView, as the implementation of LV AF on 40D is abysmal. I also tried it at f2,2 but oof area was very distracting. Then I fiddled around a little in Lightroom plus I cloned out a lot of dust bunnies on the bottles, even though I dusted the bottles off beforehand. Dusting off the product is the key. It takes a minute, while the retouching can last 10's of minutes. And fingerprints are almost unclonable afterwards.

I just saw this thread and thought I would throw in a couple of my old shots from 2004.






American Bittern (Digital Rebel w/EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM at 400mm and f/5.6, 1/100 sec, ISO 200)






Green Tree Frog (Digital Rebel w/EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro at f/5.6, 1/200 sec, ISO 200)






Bullfrog (Digital Rebel w/EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM at 400mm f/5.6, 1/400 sec, ISO 200)






American Alligator (Digital Rebel w/EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM at 400mm f/5.6, 1/320 sec, ISO 400)

I had to go through a lot of images before finding some presentable ones. It makes me appreciate the newer gear quite a bit and also makes me feel like my skills have improved some over the years.

This is really an amazing shot, and even more amazing that it was taken with a T70! Outstanding, Don!!
