You post great vids. I also loved this car when I first saw it but we Brits pronounce this beautiful creation 2-20, not 22-zero.
But all the same keep up the great work.
I also prefer Dr Pepper but Virgin Coke is or was okay. Not seen it for a long time.
Have fun!

Yes, you have convinced me to go with Canon's grip for my 7D. I was going to buy Phottix, which has good reviews, but thinking about it, Stay with Canon. I have Canon lenses, batteries so will get the Canon Grip.
Didn't know about storing the battery cover in the grip. Great idea. I love the 7D
Thanks again.

Hello Mike, Could you clarify something about the focal length of lenses and censors?
Canon, Nikon, Sigma, Tamron etc. When the lens manufacturer tells you it's a e.g 70-200mm Do you actually get 70-200mm or is there a percentage difference.
And, does type of sensor e.g Full frame, Crop sensor affect F stops, so you buy a full frame and you purchase a 50mm F/1.4 you get F/1.4, BUT if you buy a crop sensor will you still get F/1.4 or F/2.24. I have a Canon 7D and the crop sensor is 1.6 so I multiplied F/1.4 by 1.6 to get F/2.24.
Just curious.
Thanks again.

Thanks for this video, explained a great deal.
Just a question, in what situation would you use a light metre?
Because you are relying on the camera that is measuring reflective light, can that not give you a wrong setting? Or do you use ETTL?
I’m coming across a few videos and they are saying things like, “You must use a light metre... You can‘t get accurate readings without a light metre...”
But, you are getting sharp great lit images without one.
Thanks again and have fun.

Just watched Pt1 of your interview on The Photo Show. Simply excellent and genuine. One of the most valuable pieces of advice you gave was at 6 minutes. Too many people believe they are stuck in the rat race of life and they convince themselves they can't get out. It's the trying that is the difficult bit. Once you are in motion, once you are moving ahead, making strides, making small progress you are already making a difference.
I could talk about this subject for hours, but I won't bore you.
Again, well done and keep encouraging people.
You're one of the best.
All the best :-)

I like Mark and he really knows his stuff but stop product placement advertising. The most expensive equipment is beyond those who only want to shoot over the weekends. People want to know how to do this on a relatively small reasonable budget. NOT broncolor prices.
Do this exercise with a small budget and then leave it to those who have the high end equipment.
Good video but unrealistic equipment unless you have a pro studio.

The original shot is great as well as the one light shot, but after processing it, it looks like a really over processed HDR image, sorry, but it's terrible.
Don't ruin what is a beautiful piece of art.

Hello Tony, I've always enjoyed your videos but this one got my head scratching.
At the 4 min mark of your video you showed some numbers.

Canon 5D Mk 3 $2,800 is 16% cheaper than Nikon D800 but is has 36% less MB than the Nikon
Canon 5D
24MP
18MP = 75% sensor usage
18MP = 75%
20MP = 83%

Nikon D800 $3,300
36MB
21MP = 58% Sensor usage
23MP = 63%
24MP = 66%
Just by looking at the numbers, it looks like the Canon is more efficient at converting anologue to digital. Again only looking at the numbers.

Comparing the two for performance, the Canon 5D Mk III has an eight-channel readout and DIGIC 5 processing engine, which means it can shoot continuously at a maximum rate of up to 6fps, while the Nikon D800's Expeed 3 engine enables it to shoot full-resolution images at up to four frames per second (fps).
Given its higher pixel count, the Nikon D800's native sensitivity range (ISO 100-6400) is more restricted than the Canon 5D Mark III's, which runs from ISO 100-25600. Nicely, both cameras have expansion settings that enable the sensitivity to be reduced to the equivalent of ISO 50, and while the D800's maximum is ISO 25600, the 5D Mark III's is two stops higher, at ISO 102400. Remmeber at these higher settings you get some serious noise, but if you REALLY need that shot, the option is there for you.

The Canon 5D Mark III has a better signal to noise ratio across most of the sensitivity range, meaning images are cleaner at pixel level. Both cameras produce images with a lower signal to noise ratio when noise reduction is turned off. For much of the sensitivity range the 5D MK III's raw files (after conversion to TIFF) with noise reduction turned off are a close match for those from the Nikon D800 with noise reduction set to its default level.

Up to around ISO 400 the Nikon D800 leads the way for dynamic range indicating that it is capable of reproducing subtle tonal gradations in highlight and shadow areas. At mid to high sensitivity settings the Canon 5D Mark III's raw files (after conversion to TIFF) have a greater dynamic range than the D800's.

D800 tends to produce more noise in low light - especially when the light is unnatural - and the lower maximum continuous shooting rate mean that it is marginally less versatile than the 5D Mark III.

Canon has put a little more thought into how professional and enthusiast photographers use their cameras. The 5D Mark III's HDR mode, for example, is much more useful for serious photographers, and the video activation is more comfortably arranged.

The is no doubt both cameras are extremely good, and choosing between them isn't easy. It's a decision that is likely to come down to personal preferences for the control arrangements, existing allegiances and the intended use.

I am a Canon user and I have the 7D Mk I, which I am extremely happy with. My friends use Nikon and Canon, some 6D, 5D and 1Dx and some D800, 810 and D3x.

Photographers who shoot primarily in good light and who are interested in capturing the maximum amount of detail possible, perhaps specialising in landscape, still-life or macro photography, will find that the Nikon D800 is a better choice.

Thanks for a super video. Appreciate you have taken the time to do such a comparison.
Have fun!

Hello,
A fantastic video. I wish it was longer. You really have a great personality for teaching photography and I was stuck to my chair just watching you get the results you produced.
I do have one question, and it's about light meters. How did you get away with not having to measure the light that was hitting your subject?
I thought a light meter would make it a lot easier to get the amount of light you required, but you seemed to just know.
great stuff.
