I knew what to expect from this thread, but I also suffer this "I saw this 'How I Met Your Mother' episode" hysterical laughter syndrome right now.
"... It's a noble creature" folks :D
I doubt I'll able to say "sorry" :D

Canon General / Re: Why Scott Kelby Switched to Canon
« on: January 21, 2014, 03:15:24 PM »
I also bought Kelby books. Terrible waste of money and paper, that haunts and pains me for a few years already, every time I see trees :'(
Personally I'll try to keep out of my mind that switch.
Could you kindly guide me to a book that you've written on photographic excellence, so I can gain some valuable knowledge.
I could ask the same about books YOU wrote ;)
Anyway I prefer focus on subject, detailed inside-out explanations down to paradoxes that Michael Freeman delivers.

Lenses / Re: Gear Advice foe and awesome Greece trip
« on: August 01, 2013, 06:44:55 AM »
On last trip I got myself a shoulder spider rig intended for DLSR video shooting, but I used it as extra stabilisation for handheld shots when tripod was not an option. I set it up similar to rifle butt.
Downside is that I grabbed much more attention that tripod users.

Interchangeable mount possibly. That makes pretty much sense. No-brainer from technical perspective and should be done easily by Sigma's service centres/agents.
Given abilities offered by Sigma USB Dock they should be able to provide kits for end-users to change mounts and recalibration. Or universal "premount" and adapters for target systems.

My preliminary guess is new lens and service exchangeable mounts for recent lenses using Sigma Dock. Why? Because :D

Lenses / Re: Moving from 17-85... or not?
« on: July 11, 2013, 01:41:07 PM »
10-22 has ran away anyway ;)
Got 15-85. At center I can't really see the IQ difference between 15-85 and 17-85.
I guess being realtively new and not thrown around, my 17-85 might be quite good anyway.
But 15-85 does perform visibly better near edges. I'll do some testing later.

Lenses / Moving from 17-85... or not?
« on: July 09, 2013, 01:05:19 PM »
I plan to upgrade my lens set - which consist of 17-85 and 28/1.8 - with something else. Most immediate need is landscape/travel and "close quarters" interiors. Crop sensor.

I'm bit torn between:
- upgrade to C 15-85 and selling 17-85
- or adding C 10-22 (and probably fooling myself I'll get 24-105 L someday later).

Anyone had something similar? Any advices?

EOS Bodies / Re: Why can't the 70D be 40MP in regular mode?

And those additional autofocus pixels likely does not have colour filters. They should not for sake of AF performance

Lenses / Re: 70-300 DO - is it worth getting it?
« on: July 03, 2013, 04:38:12 PM »
Of course I can save up a bit more, but never in time.
Holiday leave is around corner and I can as well save for another year.
For now I have 17-85 and 28/1.8.
I was thinking about upgrade: used 70-300 DO, or new 24-104L or maybe new 15-85.

I would too prefer L over DO, but...
Or perhaps I'm taking it the wrong way? Maybe I should replace 17-85 with 24-105L for holidays in mountains?

Lenses / 70-300 DO - is it worth getting it?
« on: July 03, 2013, 02:39:23 PM »
July 2013 already, but can't afford new 70-300L. Is the 70-300 DO worth to buy, when it's half the price of L?

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon wants to make everyone a filmmaker
« on: July 02, 2013, 12:27:55 PM »
DSLR and digital camera use basically the same component types. If you can merge both functionalities, then why not?
It's a tool. You can use it one way or another or both ways. You can - don't have to.
Get over it. Only thing you have to do is to make yourself useful :)

Canon General / Re: Recommended photography books

Everything that comes from Michael Freeman, and for composition basics - his "The Photographer's Eye"

When it comes to quality of lecture, that man is unbeatable.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 60d AEB steps?
« on: May 27, 2012, 04:42:11 PM »
Press Q (on the back, above wheel), navigate to exposure correction bar, enter with "Set".
Now you can correct main exposure (except in M mode) with back wheel and apply bracketing range with top wheel.

EOS Bodies / Re: Which body to sell?

Personally I find that using tripod is an argument "for" not "against" flip screen - both stills and video. Only external monitor makes it irrelevant, not tripod.
