OK. Maybe this is not terribly embarrassing. This is typical of the kind of things I shoot, aside from hundreds upon hundreds at Disney parks worldwide.

The most encouraging news is how well it seems to work with EF lenses.

OK. That's not too hard. :D

I think my EXIF was lost because I grabbed these quickly off FB and it had already stripped it out. I don't feel like trying to find the originals right now.

The colours and facial expressions on those kids are awesome.

As a side note, I tried to post two JPGs SOOC to that last post, but the first one said it was too big. See? That seems like a hassle to me. I'm not complaining, and I don't blame our gracious host for setting limits, but the few times I've tried in the past, I've hit that same wall. Is there something out there that's easy to just know these things down that isn't a total PITA. I have Lightroom and PS but hardly ever use either of them unless somebody holds a gun to my head. What you get JPG SOOC with me is what you get. Almost period.

FWIW, all of the shots I posted above were with the ORIGINAL 70-200/2.8 IS. I just can't seem to get motivated to take the financial hit and sell it for such a loss just to buy a II or III. Not for what I do anyway. This lens seems fine to me, and it focuses faster on the R than it does on my 80D or my 5D Mk III. A lot faster actually it seems to me in unscientific usage.

Those are JPGs SOOC and untouched. Not even cropped, obviously. Pretty much how I always shoot. I'll usually turn RAW on too for the "cast" picture I always do at the end just in case, but I've never had to use one.

That’s odd. When I upload, the photos automatically downscale. Maybe someone with more experience can chime in.

That's what I would have thought too. The "second" one uploaded fine, but the first one said it was too big.

There's a 10 megabyte limit. They will "downscale" to a pixel size limit, but not in terms of memory. Lightroom Classic Creative Cloud allows exporting to a megabyte limit.

I've run into this on my 7D2 images as well.

You sure are a character Mr Wilson.... Sharing images is what this place is all about... Check this out... popped up on my phone. seems like a reasonable comparison of the R and the 1DxII... It's nice to see someone do a intelligent review.


The guy does a good job of articulating the differences when it comes to video, and for basic stills capture. Not surprised by his IQ findings, as the similar sensor in the 5D4 lost nothing when compared to the 1DX2, and in fact edged it out for micro detail due to the extra MPX. The 1-series holds a slight edge in high ISO performance.

Pretty much what I’m seeing when I shoot both back to back; I’m actually convinced that the sensor in the R produces a much better final image than my 5D4 did, despite them being the same. The IQ from my R and 1DX2 are comparable as well, I wouldn’t choose one over the other in this dept...

Where the 1-series surpasses my R, though, is in the overall direct feel of operation, the ergonomics of the controls, and the camera responsiveness. The R doesn’t drive lenses as quick as the 1. For bird shooting, the R just isn’t there for me quite yet, but it’s close; I think with some tweaks to the interface, more AF point options, and improvement of the EVF blackout, the R will be more than viable for most shooters.

What do I grab first when it’s time for birding? 1DX2. For everything else: no contest, the R.

Thanks. It's a fun show. It's kind of turned into a local phenomenon of sorts. It's a local dance studio's adaptation of The Grinch twisted in with the Christmas story. The Grinch has become a local star, and has come back for 9 seasons to reprise the role. They sell out 6 shows a year in a 600 seat venue and have for 9 years now (The entire county is only 60k people.), with only small changes in the show each year to reflect what's going on in the country. The kids start working on it in July and they absolutely love doing it and ADORE "The Grinch," Fletcher Duke.

We were going to shoot in the redwoods, but rain poured and we headed indoors. This was the first time using a foldup softbox umbrella I carried in my van but never used before. It seemed to do reasonably well. On the left I bounced into a silver umbrella. I only had enough for two lights on this trip to the redwood coast and Crescent City.
