p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 1D and 1200mm go surfing


This morning dawned on the west coast, with 8-12ft swells around Swami's CA.

I took out the 1D, Canon 600 F4L and Canon MKII 2x extender, and shot over 600 frames in 45 minutes.

This was taken at 1200mm, 1/1250th, F11, ISO400, RAW

With the 1D on AI Servo, single point AF, Matrix 4, Manfrotto CarbonOne monopod.

Shot post processed in PS, LAB space USM sharpening, RGB RED channel image to Greyscale, then tinted back in Colormatch RGB space.

Chris,

Great capture!

Totally unrelated, but how do you like the 300D (Rebel)? How's the supplied lens? Obviously, you're using it as backup, but inquiring minds want to know...

Chris,

8-12' at Swami's?

I was at Oceanside Harbor and it wasn't that big there.
We were going to try out Cardiff Reef, but didn't for some reason.

here are some of my shots from this am.

Wow!
I thought Alice Cooper was into golf these days. I guess that shows how far out of the loop I am.

Well, I got the 300D for my wife at Christmas, as she's been knocking on the door of a seriouls DSLR for some time now after outgrowing her point and shoot.

Only had it a few weeks but so far I'd say it's outstanding value.

When I look back at my first D30, and now look at what the 300D gets you for less than $1k, it's simply outstanding.

I'll give it a workout on the bigger L glass, as and when I get the chance, and post some samples here.

For now, the kit lens does a decent job for general shooting, but does suffer some chomatic abaration issues at the edges.

Can't complain for the money, and I am comparing it to F2.8 L glass.

If anyone is in the market for a decent DSLR, I'd sat 300D and kit lens is the best place to start for the money.

Chris.

Nice shots, I especially like the sequence, way cool!

What were you using to get the shots today?

Swami's had it's moments this morning, I found myself up to my knees at one point, and ruined a decent pair of Vans to get that shot!

Perhaps we should hook-up later this week and double team some of the action?

Drop me a mail if you're going to be about.

Cheers,

Chris.

Yikes, I thought you were using the 1200mm prime there for a second. You'd be the first human I ever heard of owning that bazooka...

I'd love one, but I've not managed to win the lotto yet!

Chris,

I used a 1D, 400 2.8L and 2xII.

Hope to be picking up the 600 f4L soon.
Have a line of a good one. (the non is version)

I might be down Friday or Sat in that area.
Not sure where I'll be on Thursday....

I'll let you know when I come down though.

Kurt
