    My import is straight to DNG and so that would scrap the built-in jpeg.

    Just had a look at the MagMod, looks quite good. How well does it soften the light? Do you just have the sphere, or do you have the kit with the grid and magnetic clip?

    Is there a reason you convert to DNG?

    You need the magnetic clip to attach any of the other bits.

    I have Sphere, Beam, grid and gels.

    It softens it a bit, better than the little plastic Stofen diffuser, but they're not magic. Need to have the flash really close if you want it soft.

    But for weddings, they're great because you can just swap the modifier in an instant. I use the grid mainly for dancefloor shots when I'm dragging the shutter.

    Yes, slightly smaller file size is the main reason; no more additional side-car xmp file and Adobes commitment of future proofing.

    I guess, way back when I was learning LR, I bought a couple of Scott Kelby books and it was always his recommendation too.

    Interesting about the xmp files, how does it store the changes without these? I always save the xmp files just in case my library gets corrupt I've still got the RAW and the changes that I applied with the xmp.

    Not sure, but it crunches them into one file so tidies everything up nicely. Xmp files only have the original meta data and so just embeds that as part of the conversion I’m guessing.

    I've been going through the images I took during the rut at Woburn this year. I've not posted many of them yet but will start posting them on flickr and on here over the next few weeks/months.

    Any one have the Siggy 20mm art?

    Off into town to pick one up, don’t really need it but have some money to burn and I think it might offer something a little different compared to my other wide lenses.

    I used to have the old Sigma 20mm f1.8 and it was a very good lens so I'd imagine that the Art is wonderful :D

    I miss that lens.

    Picked it up earlier, it's bigger than I thought it would be, its even bigger than the 50mm. I.Q seems pretty good it was slightly front focusing but was able to sort it pretty quickly without even needing to use the dock which was a bit of a relief as I have had Sigma lenses before that front focused at short distances and back focused at longer distances but this one seems dead on.

    Would say that’s a pretty good price HDEW have them new for £350. See them around used for £285-£300.

    It was mentioned a while ago how the 1.4 primes are a little slower to focus than a 2.8 zoom. There's a little truth in that with the longer FL's for sure but the 35 is as quick as my 24-70 and just never misses a beat for me. The little one was two at the weekend and the sun was streaming in through the window when I took these. Should have used a blink of flash to balance a tad but in the moment didn't have one to hand, a great combo the 750/35 1.4.. (not normally the kind of thing I share but haven't done much lately)

    Prices seem to have gone up since I bought mine a while back, used from store you’re looking around £350 so assuming it’s in great knick and the G version it sounds a old price at £250.

    Nice. Have to say the 35 1.4 is a beast. Fast becoming my favourite lens. Well maybe after the 58! :D

    After what seemed like an interminable number of days of rain we had a short dry spell. Earlier in the school year the indoor preschool class, along with the rest of the elementary school that I shoot events for got the usual posed school photos by a commercial outfit. However, the school also has an outdoor preschool class as well that wasn't included in these sessions so I was drafted to take some individual and class photos for the them. This little one was not feeling 100% but still showed up for the photos. What a little cutie!

    It's my most used lens by a country mile, always on one of the bodies, wouldn't swap it for anything. Generally leave the 35 & 58 on each body and tends to be whatever I grab first for general family stuff.

    Yep, can’t resist the lure of film :rolleyes: Bought a Nikon F80, last of the pre digital bodies so it’s pretty modern actually.

    I was looking at an F100 as a xmas present but opted for a big soft box instead. I’m not convinced I’d use it much.

    Wise choice. f80 is a baby f100, baby price too. Mine was £40 quid from the devil bay and that was pricey! :)

    Probably a more sensible option for something that might be a novelty. Maybe I'll look at that. I have a Canon body in the loft but no lenses so better off buying a Nikon body so that I can use my lenses.

    I almost bought an F100 the other day. Then I remembered the last time I put a roll of film through a camera and came to my senses. :LOL:
