EOS-M / Re: Canon EOS M3 in Q3 of 2014?
« on: April 14, 2014, 11:31:12 AM »
As a hardcore Canon fan, I find it harder and harder to recomend Canon cameras these days unless they pretend to shoot sports and/or wildlife.

If I was going to buy my 1st camera today and all I wanted was landscape and portraits (most common things people shoot) I wouldn't by Canon. I'd buy Sony or Fuji

Sony and fuji are on the vanguard. They are innovating and releasing exciting things to the market. Canon and Nikon are starting to look like the old relative that doesn't keep up with the new market tendencies

Assuming that you're talking about mirror less, yes. Song a7r.. Well now a7s. Heck yeah! But dslrs are a different breed.

Ooh! Finally a canon related rumor!! Lol this is pretty exciting actually. Think canon won't make such a huge blunder like they did with the eos-m. I need this and adapter. Maybe canon will release the 11-22mm with the m3 to US?  Rumor G.A.S?  ;D

I'm wondering if the op is one of those photographers who gets in the way.. right smack in the middle of the aisle taking photos.. swapping this and that camera running around.  I'm sure they get the shots!  btw the shots posted are posed/static photos.   ::)
I totally agree with having zooms for events.  I don't know about you guys but the photographer should not become an attraction to an event.  yes?  If you've been part of the wedding family or attendees, you don't want to be talking about how annoying the photographer is.  Just saying this from too many observations....
primes vs zooms..  I love primes and think that they are extremely capable of being creative and unique.  But zoom TOTALLY have a place for most photographers.  Most photojournalists that I've seen carry zooms.  (70-200)  why?  well, they capture moments.  You don't exactly have time to run, compose and capture.  back to weddings.. capture the good stuff and doing that with zooms... there's a good reason.

Would the price come down a bit if I wait for a few months?

Would be nice but I wouldn't count on it due to supply and demand. The sigma 35 and 18-35 hasn't come down.. Those are still selling real well. Maybe in a couple years? Haha

Mind Shift Gear - there is a waist level container spins around front so you can access it without taking off your pack.


That has to be one of the neatest bags I've seen in a while! would be perfect for my hikes!  Thanks for sharing~  now I have to get that..

I don't think this is a soap opera... feels more like a public stoning.

Haha  I've been reading this thread almost everyday to check up on new posts.  I've really enjoyed this... learned alot at the expense of the OP.  It's great that the OP actually posted this because it helps everyone really.  This kind of situation applies to literally everyone.  You don't have to shoot weddings, primary or secondary shooter, it's all relevant to daily shooting gigs.  It's good to know that the world still contains people with better than average code of ethics!!  11 pages later.. have to say thanks!

kinda sounds like the person suing McDonalds for giving him one napkin.  One issue, which isn't a killer, out of billions served?   ::)  Canon is known quite well for their QC, at least in their higher end models.  I am doubting this issue.  Internal information?  Curious to see how this pans out.

You can find a photo snob when he/she has a barbie hung on their microphone~  HAHA!  did anyone else see that??

I really hope that Canon doesn't release another rebel series dslr.. I still see t3i being sold and don't even see the t4i much and even less of the t5i.  the price differences are so minimal now too.  Just stop.  lol  Who wouldn't be happy to see a new rebel like every 1.5-2 yrs?  Maybe it's just me?  anyways, rumors rumors~~ 

Photography Technique / Re: Shooting and model release form use

When we are talking about commercial purposes, basically you making money off of the photo.  In any form or purpose.  For instance whether it be promoting your website to sell images/services or embedded pics in a youtube video.  I have to agree with just about everything that you guys have posted.. but I do feel like acutance... not knowing what is right and wrong, in a sense that I don't want to get involved with the legal actions.   

I just like to shoot without thinking about the legal stuff.  You look at photo competitions.. for example national geographic.  I was going to enter the travelers competition with some street pics from South America.  Problem, I didn't obtain any signed releases.  -______-  For me, the fact for obtaining releases??  ruins everything.  It's like.. Hey!  I shot a candid scene of you interacting with so and so while doing so and so.  Can I get a release??  Seriously.  Maybe that's all a part of photography that I need to accept and build on.  It's just frustrating for myself.  Maybe I'll go into silhouette street photography.  HAHA  Oh and I don't think that this has to do with being in a public setting or not.  You just need releases.  correct?  (I hope I'm dead wrong)

Well, I live in the US but have taken photographs in South America and Korea most recently. Some in Europe as well. And I guess I should add... What exactly is defining public places? When is it okay/legal to use your shots that you have taken? I've seen street photographers like Eric kim take photos but that's not my style at all. I love to shoot the moments, whenever I see an expression towards something.

I hope I'm not repeating a topic that has already been asked/discussed..

So I understand that it is "legal" to take photos in public. Now concerning model release forms, do you just carry them around with a pen and have every person you photograph sign it? I know that sounds dumb but seriously there's too much "controversy" and grey areas and I hope to have some of that resolved with all you extremely knowledgable people. I have many great shots of people that I took in public places but do not post them online due to not understanding the whole scale of things. I appreciate it and hope to hear from many of you!!

Contests / Re: Gura Gear Uinta Bag System Giveaway
« on: March 24, 2014, 11:11:46 PM »
The reason why Gura Gear is doing this kind of thing is for advertisement and more exposure.  Hey, chances of winning are slim but all of us that enter and post about it help them to increase their business.  So whether you win or not, its nice to see companies reaching out to the public with awesome incentives.  Win, great, nothing, buy it yourself.  :)

at first glance, it looks like a lytro camera.. but then reminds me of a blackmagic camera... a large ugly gopro?? HAHA  I wonder how much this is gonna cost.. the description just sounds like a marketing hype.  Uh oh.   ::)
