    Timelapses: deeper into Holy Grail (day to night)

    As long as it's seamless - then any technique is OK.

    GoPro footage questions

    Slow motion shot at 60 fps looks good when played back at 30 fps.

    The Time Has Come to Go

    These forums will continue with or without Laurin. Questions will continue to be answered as they always have. Nobody should overestimate their value to SS.

    Why would they ban Barry? I think Barry left on his own due to the childish drama.
  7. Fast forward to 2020 Shutterstock uses blockchain technology to keep track of all images. No more piracy or it's greatly reduced. Contributors are all happy now. https://www.artnome.com/news/2018/3/4/how-blockchain-will-change-photography
  8. I would like recommendations for a tripod head with: 360 degrees pan. 45 degrees up and down tilt. No-parallax point adjustments. Arca Swiss quick release. Can hold about 20 pounds. Camera is Canon 5DIII mounted vertical.

    Lens reviews...

    The Canon 70-200 f4L IS USM and Canon Extender EF 1.4x II is in addition to what you have. IMO ..... You will not get a decent 18-200.

    No ..... Keep the 24-105mm, it's a good walk-about lens. The extender is good for the 70-200 - you get almost 300mm if needed. The extender is very compact and light.

    IMO ...... Forget the 18-200. In addition to your current gear go with: Canon 70-200 f4L IS USM, with tripod collar. Canon Extender EF 1.4x II (or III). Lowepro Fastback AW 250 backpack - or similar backpack. Instead of shoulder bag. Backpacks are very comfortable and you can walk around all day with one.

    Looking for a Lightroom replacement

    I'm 95% sure no program edits the CR2 file directly.

    Looking for a Lightroom replacement

    But the reason for this thread is to get away from the subscription - even though it is a good price. ON1 looks good - I have never heard of it before. And $80.00 is cheap.
