I’ve been shooting tethered in my studio sessions for a couple of years now and love having the ability to see the images almost immediately as they’re shot. Whether for portraits or figure shoots, having the ability to visually communicate and direct changes is a huge asset, saving time and assuring that the final images meet our expectations. But now, I’m faced with having to re-think how I’m going to do things…
While Phase One yesterday released Capture One version 6.4 and with it, much anticipated RAW support for new camera models including the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and Nikon’s D800, Canon reportedly is not expected to release the SDK for the EOS 5D MkIII until mid-May, 2012, and until that time full tethered support for the camera in Capture One will not be available.
In the mean time, I have been able to figure out a workaround Continue reading “Canon EOS 5D Mark III Tethering Workaround for Capture One”

Canon caused a bit of a stir earlier this month with the announcement of the EOS 7D, the latest in their digital SLR lineup.

Though the first test was a success, the experiment left me wondering if I could take it one step further and throw my Canon EF 2X II extender into the mix to get an effective 2400mm combination to work.
Earlier this month I discussed my preliminary experiment with the Nikkor-P 1200mm f/11 lens on a Canon EOS 5D using a third-party adapter. Though the first test was a success, the conditions under which I took my first photographs of the moon with this combination were less than ideal. High humidity and intermittent cloud cover from our annual monsoon season in Tucson affected the clarity of the images, and I was left to wonder what the results would be under better conditions. Also, the last experiment left me wondering if I could take the test one step further and throw my Canon EF 2X II extender into the mix to get an effective 2400mm combination to work.
