I know how you feel, we got 18" Monday with wind.
I hope the roof can support the weight of all that snow.
Hi, going to the Grand Canyon in July and looking to capture some great memories. I have a Canon 760D with the following lens. Canon EFS 18-85 mm 3.5 IS, Canon EF 70-200 4, and a Canon EF 50 mm 1.8. Do you think I need a Prime wide angle lens, or any other lens that may work better than my current outfit.
The equipment you have is just fine. Just add a tripod and you're set. I live a two hour drive from the Grand Canyon and have photographed the Canyon dozen's of time. I have used a Canon 7D and Canon 5DMkiii frame and on both, my Canon 24-105 f.4 lens which is more than adequate.
My suggestion for where to shoot in the Canyon is as follows: Arrive there approximately 3 to 4 hours before sunset. Proceed to Desert View, the east side of the Canyon. There is a sign directing you to Desert View as you enter on the main road. There are several turn off's on the way to Desert View. Go directly to Desert View first. When you finish there, you can start back on the road that took you there and start taking the turn offs as you head back to the main road. Each turn off is unique in itself and will present different views of the Canyon to photograph. As you get near the road you came in on, you will see wildlife and people stopped to photograph them. This is where your telephoto lens will come in handy. I am attaching a photo of the Canyon at Desert View. This was taken with the Canon 7D and 25-105 f4. lens. If you have any further questions, just ask me and I would be glad to help you. Roger
Thank you to all for you recommendations and advice. I learn a lot.
Let me know if I can be of any further help.

Is the Grand Canyon NP open during the shutdown? During the last gov. shutdown, I was in Maine at Acadia NP and we had to park outside the park and walk in. I'm just curious about GCNP.
The Governor of Arizona decreed that Grand Canyon would stay open and was finding the funds to do so. Yes, it's open right now.

I live just a two hour drive from the Grand Canyon and have been photographing the Grand Canyon for the past six years. For the short time you'll be here, following are my suggestions. Photograph the Canyon two hours before sunset to maximize the definition of the Buttes in the Canyon. This applies to two hours after sunrise. However, based on my experience and your time restraints, this is what I recommend. Coming into the park and before getting to the village, there will be a right turn off of the entrance road to "Desert View". You will see a sign to that effect. Proceed to Desert View, the last turn off before exiting the part out the east gate. I will attach a couple of photos here so you can see the benefit of shooting at this hour. On your way to Desert View, you will pass a number of turn offs to various Canyon overlooks. You will visit these on your way back to exit the park, but start at Desert View first. Your equipment is fine as the photos I attach were shot with my Canon 24 x 105 lens on a Canon 7D frame. I use the same lens on the body I have now, a Canon 5DMarkIII. Your telephoto lens will come in handy for photographing the wildlife on your way out of the park as dusk is the time they come out to feed. If I can be of any help to you, please private message me and I'll be glad to help you. Also, I always use a polarizing lens for the sky. Good luck and have a wonderful time. Roger
I found a wonderful spot for a sunset in the Seychelles. I hope you enjoy the view, I know that I certainly did. Thanks for looking, K
Excellent capture. Thanks for sharing.
New member, well for about a week anyway. This my first photo post. Fall colors from valley view on the Yosemite Valley floor from late October.
This is one of the most photographed places at different times of the year. It is also one of my personal places to shoot in Yosemite. Excellent job capturing the fall colors. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you very much for your detailed answer to my question. I will follow up on your suggestions shortly. I'm in the middle of a project right now, so I will have to review the details of your message as soon as I'm through with my project. Thanks again.
Just to double check a few subtle issues:
1) You've described card 1 as the target for RAW. During the playback, is '1' displayed in the upper right corner as the source for the images being displayed?
2) What software are you using to download? If you connect a USB from the camera to the computer and navigate to the CF card via the computer's OS, do you see the CR2 files? Can you copy them that way?
Thank you for your help. I found a source for Sandisk data recovery on the internet and it appears that I have a corrupt disk. On the playback, the camera is set to playback disk 2 and that's why all of the images were playing back in the camera as playback is set for card #2. I can send the disk into the recovery company but they charge more than I'm willing to pay for their service.
Regarding your above comment "is '1' being displayed in the upper right corner", I don't know what right corner you are referring too.
I use a SanDisk Extreme Pro, 90MB/s, UDMA7, 16GB compact Flash card in my Canon 5D MKlll camera set to record camera raw images. Recently, I shot many images while away on vacation and was able to view all the images I took via my camera's play back method. After returning home, I tried to download the images for processing in Photoshop Bridge and the download stopped before downloading all the images. I retried several times, but with the same result. I'm puzzled that I can play back in the camera all images just fine, but cannot download all of them onto my computer.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Also, does anyone know of a company that might be able to retrieve all the images so they can be downloaded into my computer.
The second card that I have installed in my camera was set to record in jpeg, however, I prefer to process my photo's for printing in camera raw for all the reasons most of you already know. Fortunately, I am able to download all the photos from the second card in my camera, however, they're not what I prefer to process with.
Good afternoon, hogs,
I want to print some family photos on canvas. Can anyone recommend a good reasonably priced online source?
Thanks in advance for the help.
I've used canvasHQ for several canvas wraps and they are excellent. They also have a 30 day guarantee return policy. The frame that holds the canvas is very sturdy and well built. They also run discounts regularly up to 35% off. I highly recommend them.
