Hey all!

Been out with the Ranger this past weekend again. This time I tried the PocketWizards as triggers and they performed as well as the Skyports. It was nice having the ability to easily alter the Ranger's power in 1/3rd increments with a dial.

My location was out on a smallish yacht just cursing around a lake. It was a calm day, but still an interesting shooting experience when the yacht rocks a little from side to side!

Fortunately nothing went overboard and I've got a few shots I'm pretty pleased with. Also very impressed with the battery life on the Ranger. I took 450odd shots, between 50-90% power and it was still showing over 50% charge.

I manage to lug a second battery everywhere, only to find I've never needed it yet!

Anyway, here are a couple, and the rest of the set so far can be seen here... (external link)

Yes, it's a trifold.

Interesting shoes in that image. Thanks for sharing.

Cheers

Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.

Hers might have been a different designer, but that's what I found online

Is it just me or do you need a bit of barrel distortion correction/perspective correction on that image?

Give me a few minutes and I'll post what I'm thinking.

OK, here's what I'm talking about:
yours is first, mine is second

Aaron, I'll check the focal length but there shouldn't be distortion at what I think I shot at

You shot it at 70mm. And there is distortion. Just look at the before and after.

The distortion would've been a non-issue if shot from a lower angle or if a T/S lens was used. I don't think the lens is the culprit here. Would this be correct?

No, but thanks for asking.

Better luck next time?

hmmmm-- so the Sigma 70-200 apparently has some barrel distortion at 70mm. I was probably 20 feet away from her, if not more. Aaron, how much correction did you do?

Not much, you can see in the image that it just looks a little distorted, the middle is bulging a bit which is warping the vertical lines and it is skewed top to bottom due to the angle. Without tilting the lens the only way to correct the skew is in post.

If you notice, it also helps her head and upper body not look so big compared to her feet. I can post a screenshot of photoshop showing the corrections before cropping if you want, I'll have to do it when I get home tonight though.
