imho 7D vs 70D is quite similar to 5D2 vs 6D.

If you already own 7D/5D2, chances are you probably won't be interested upgrading to 70D/6D, but if you are upgrading from old Rebels or in the market looking for one of those, I'd go with the newer offerings.

This. /discussion ;) :lol:

I have been reading this post off and on, I'm interested to see if anyone have comment on the motor noise when the camera is zooming? I saw a you-tube video demo the difference between STM VS USM and I can hear a very noticeable noise. Wonder if that is expected with DSLR vs a video camcorder?
Also I was told that with manual zooming, the image might appear jiggly when you compare to any simple powered camcorder zooming? Is that true? (Obviously I'm trying to learn here, much appreciate the help)

This may be a dumb question (I'm good like that) but when y'all make movies do you not most of the time add music which should pretty much eliminate any motor noise from the lens? Even voice or voice over should pretty much eliminate that. Right?

In a perfect world, you should be using external mics so any noise coming from on the camera should be negligible. But if you are just derping around using the on-camera mic, the motor noise will be a nuisance unless you are completely removing audio and replacing it with something else.

It depends on what I am taking video of. If its just the kids horsing around, the on camera mic is fine for me. If I want nice clean sound, I use an external mic. Its easy to do and software syncs it up perfectly. Even mounting it on the hotshoe will pretty much eliminate the motor noise.

It really depends what you are taking a video of and what you are trying to accomplish. Even if you add music or a voice over, sometimes you want that ambient noise from your scene to also be heard in the background, but you don't want to hear the focusing mechanisms.

At the risk of being hammered by people who know better here's something to get you started with Lightroom 5.

Try applying the Punch+ preset (In the develop module under Presets in the left pane)...you can apply this on import so it's instantly applied to all your photos.

In the right pane click the two triangles at the top of the histogram...they'll highlight where your photo is clipping, and fix your exposure if needed. Play with the Highlights, Shadows, Whites & Blacks sliders.

At the bottom of the Tone Curve section try medium contrast or put a slight S into the tone curve.

Try Sharpening at 40 - 50 and Masking somewhere around 60-70. If you hold down the ALT key while you move the slider you can see what the sharpening is being applied to. Totally white means everything is being sharpened, totally black means nothing is being sharpened. Try to take it to a point where all the white dots due to noise disappear and just the important outlines are highlighted.

You can apply some Luminance noise reduction if you think it's required but try to keep it to a minimum.

If you find some settings you like you can save them and apply it as a preset when you import your pictures.

Wanted to thank you again bro. That little suggestion has given me a good baseline. I've started dabbling with clarity and others now. And tomorrow I'm watching a LR video. My pictures ( I think) are starting to show a steady paced improvement. As I now shoot in full raw.

Thanks again!

Next up is getting a better monitor and books. Sigh.

Well, based on my MINIMAL shooting in just close to 1 month of ownership, I've shot nearly 40 gigs. So...

50gigs x 12 months = I need to shoot in lower quality or be more selective of what I save. Holy snitz....

No worries, glad to help!

You're well on the road to ruin now...new books, new monitor, faster p.c., more disk space, better tripod, better lenses, new flashes...new car to carry it all !!!

Enjoy the journey :-)

That's where I find Lightroom to be really useful - you can tag the images you like, quickly delete the images with problems, then go round the loop again and really refine out the few images from a shoot you really like.

If I shoot 300 images on a particular day/subject/trip I'll rarely choose more than 20 as final picks (often as little as 10 or fewer). I don't usually delete all the remaining images, but do try to get rid of as many poor ones as I can (apart from sometimes keeping images with a particular problem I might like to revisit as a reminder of what settings/approaches don't work!)

Alternatively - disk space is cheap! Don't worry about it :D


Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent

Disk space is cheap. Disk failure is free.

I already have/backup 8TB. So I will choose better shots from now on and RAW>JPG or just shoot JPG on other events. Like just personal trips or random meaningless.
