davev wow! Stunning shot, and glad to see another Sig 120-300 user. AND ISO 1250, impressive noise report from the 70D. How much post did you apply if any?

I did quite a bit with that one.
There wasn't a lot of light where and when I took this shot.
I've noticed that my copy of this lens is good wide open but not great.
To get great, I have to stop down 1/3 of a stop.
These were shot wide open.

ok- does this not have a win8/64 bit device driver? I want to tether to LR 4.x

Works fine on mine. LR 4 does not seem to fully support the 70D...LR 5 does of course.

LR 4 doesn't support 70d. Could be a deal breaker for me

You are talking about an $80 upgrade, which adds the content healing brush amongst other nice features, when debating spending 1200 or more on the camera....not getting how that is a deal breaker.

It can only do so much...in a low light scene like that with incandescent bulbs it can miss. There is a custom white balance setting where you can sample part of your frame to use as the reference for "white" that would give you more accurate color.


OK thanks - one day I'll buy a grey card ....

I was thinking I didn't want/need to upgrade the nifty two fifty, but now I'm thinking after seeing these shots! Great work!

One thing I bet we can all agree on is that we love the light weight character of the 70D, at least I do...but when you connect the Sigma 120-300 that light weight is out the window.

That said, Davev, what ball head/tripod combo are you trusting to carry the combo that way?

Ok, yeah, sorry kind of a jerky comment. There are other ways to get things into Lightroom, it just takes another step or two to use the Canon software first.

Just so it's clear, that lens in Davev's last picture is not the Sigma 120-300 2.8 OS. I'm not even sure if it has been implied at all, I'm just saying :)

Ive never used the cannon software
it takes me long enough to do them in LR
maybe I should?
add extra time I dont have?

Thanks everyone for your comments.

Although I am getting older, (I'll be 55 soon) I mostly shoot hand held.
I do sometimes use a monopod without a ballhead, but not very often.

The thing I tried today was to use auto iso from iso 800 through iso 3200, and setting
the min shutter speed at 1/250th while in aperture mode.

In the woods like this, when the sun is out, I think these type of settings will really help
me out when animals are moving into and out of sun light.

A lucky quick snap in the garden this afternoon before taking the dog out. When I was considering this camera people said there wouldn't be any increase in image quality - but I'm not so sure. Brought through Lightroom, but virtually nothing done to it to retain the softness.
