I thought ETTR was the way to go; I've read a lot about it right after I got my 1st DSLR.

And after 5 years, I haven't really found a sound approach for it other than a "safety net" - a fix if there's something wrong that I can't wrap around my head on how or what to expose.

Sadly that's just what ETTR to me. Many times I wondered how could I not like it. Its just I always thought that if I could get the theoretical "proper" exposure for various scenes, that's everything for me, no ETTR, no optimizing.

I know that's just me though, also I'm relatively a starter in photography, I may or may not actively use it in the future. I don't hate it, I try it from time to time but until now it doesn't make a lot of difference.

Will this be the first time Canon comes with two versions? I so doubt this….

Fourth time - 20D/20Da, 60D/60Da, 6D/6Dn are the first three.
Plus the 70D, the ones that has wifi, and the ones that don't - if that counts. ;D

I won't be able to afford it when it comes, but 50mp - I'm just eager to know what it brings.

No IS for that price? Even if some would say they won't need it. Just for the sake of IS.

I have a Nisi 10 stop 100mm square filter.
I love it but I think the 6 stop is a better fit since there are times I want to use the stopper but its already dim and the 10 stop is just too powerful.
I'd have to remove it and compensate via aperture + the 2 stop of the cpl.
During sunrise up to sunset I got no problem with the 10 stop.

I don't have a vari-nd, seems its more useful if shooting people/portraits on very bright day - but thats just me.

Lenses / Re: What is your favorite lens/camera combo in your camerabag?

70D w/ EFS 10-22mm USM.. Coz I usually shoot landscapes, and then I can just dial in the 22mm for a 35mm equivalent if I want a wider walkaround.
There's the EF 35mm f2 IS in the bag too, but its not my favorite, not yet.

For STM, there's the new 10-18 for that, and IS too. :o

If only it says f/2.8, but still. If this was just an EF lens.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Buying 2nd hand 70D, what to check?
« on: October 12, 2014, 10:52:57 PM »
Yes, most likely its stolen if not a scam. Even the cheapest everything-most-go sale; it won't still be priced like that.

From where I am, the lowest price I could find is about $650 but that's rare and considered sold the moment its posted.

Lenses / Re: Thoughts on Having a 35 and a 50 on Crop?
« on: October 11, 2014, 08:40:59 AM »
I recently bought a 35mm F2 IS to be used as my "normal" lens with my 70D. If I'll add either a 50mm or an 85mm it will be for shooting portraits.
