Brides move, don't they?


They do. And if you pinch 'em hard enough,they even fly :mrgreen:

My bride was a great little mover but has now turned in to an old bird not suited to being photographed with my 1DmkIII :)

Does this mean that CDS' new title will be "Photographer of Brides in Flight" ?

HAHAHHAHA. I'm sorry, mine is a useless post Sir.
But I read this and burst into laughter.

Brilliant.

My MkIII is in the shop by the way. Due back in a week (felt like staying in topic somehow)

Actually, it was a simple spelling error.

Bride vs. bird.

:lol:

Good thing you've already got the mkIII. If the bride/bird reads that, you might have more problems than AF issues to worry about. ;)

:lol: First runaway brides, and now flying ones. What's the world coming to?

And remotely on topic, my 100-400 is mounted to my mkIII right now, and it still seems to be a functional combination, so I'm holding out hope for everyone involved and the dramas with their similar combos.

I fail to see the problem, your bird/bride can fly with sufficient thrust. ;)

Not so much. It turns out we were all trying to take bird pictures, and that's not what the camera was designed for.

1Dm3 for weddings
5Dm2 for weddings

I see a trend.

...or perhaps:

1Dm3 for really quick weddings or where the bride wants to hide her face
5Dm2 for high quality weddings
1000D for cheap weddings

I can just see the modifications to the 1DmkIII white paper (page 20):

"Predictive AF can track a bride in flight approaching (or, more likely, retreating) at about 31 mph up to about 26.2 ft away with an EF300mm f/2.8L IS USM lens."

:-D

Its all a bit of a joke, I can't believe canon are spinning that line. I was reading about the safari trip and although it wasn't ideal but at least you had a backup camera with you. I'm off to vietnam for 2 weeks with only one camera body. I just hope the mk3 keeps on ticking and there are plenty of brides along the way!

"...What is the airspeed velocity of a laden bride?.."

I keep wanting to type 'bridges'. - _that_ would be poor AF performance tracking bridges.

a great shoot for this thread would be a variation of "the jump" shot of the groom and best men, but featuring brides. truly, "brides in flight".
