Thanks, Jeff, Niall, Jay Steve & Tim...

Out of all I think Tim probable shoots closest to my kind of images,...with Motorsport....
I just shoot with less skill...
Thinking about keeping the 1D$ & getting a 5D3,....7D might become Long range . good light camera/Backup....
Seems the 7D is like the 100-400 , OK in good light.....but not quite there...

Thanks guys..



That sound like a good plan, Al. You've already got the 1D4, right?

I love the expression on the boy, looks like he is waiting for someone to make up their mind. I still have a picture of me in my pedal car. Wish I still had that car, make a nice down payment on one of today's cars.

I agree with Tim, the X is most probably the finest action related pro frame in existence, even with it's warts. I've not shot with a 5D III so it could well be in the running, Zim would certainly be the default opinion if I were trying to make a decision.

Normally I have four bodies of the same model, currently I have two X's and two D800's. Don't believe I'll do anything until a next-gen is released from one or both of them. The company that does that will have a big influence on whether I remain an equal opportunity shooter, or go 100% in any one direction.

Raining and rumbling at HQ at the moment, which is good for lush green backgrounds............

Had lunch with "The Great Dobransky" a little while ago. We lamented the development of DBI, and revisited the old days. Ruminated on what a matched set of squeak marks would look like on the main thoroughfare in the middle of it.

ISO 2500, 1/80th/2.8......................banding beginning to show in the shadow areas.

Interesting, this is the identical exposure set up, but is a more perfect exposure for the existing light so no sliders required. No banding............... (and so sharp you can practically read the highway signs down the tollway!)

Thanks Brian! I'm putting a plan in place to take this rig downtown. I envision a series of images of the Dallas skyline at about the same illumination, using a 407 as the platform. I'm going to be in Houston next week, might try putting the same thing together down there. I love it when a new tool gets you thinking about new possibilities! Now what I need is a body that has less noise at higher iso settings, lots less noise.

Another of AF1 on approach to KAUS, a little better editing job on this one me thinks, and a vapor trail.

I just read a story on Canon surmising that there will be no more bodies released in 2013, They postulated that 2014 would be a big year for Canon "Pro" bodies. Given the history, I'd believe the first supposition, but will wait to see on the second. So, Canon won't be producing the next "lower noise" lens holder in 2013. I'd bet that Nikon will best them by another large MP body before the first Canon version is released. Come to think of it, I'm set either way so it doesn't really matter.

Last I had heard they were holding off on the 7D2 until they could have the new 100-400L ready as they were going to likely market the two as a pair. It wasn't going to happen til later in the year, so with that in mind it very well may have been moved into 2014. As for the MP wars.......yeah, that never ends

Did you shoot the 1DX at all in those conditions? Less noise, but fewer pixels...

Brian, where did you shoot AF1 from? I was idly mulling the idea of going to see it but figured security might have things to say about long lenses...
