EOS Bodies / Re: Global Shutter Coming to Canon DSLRs? [CR1]
« on: January 22, 2015, 11:47:26 AM »
What's the point of having 30fps when you have video shot at 30fps?  Doesn't the 1DC cover this?  Or is this basically what the mirrorless cameras have, just faster? they have very fast frame bursts..  slightly confused?

Reviews / Re: 85mm 1.8 vs other 85mm Primes for portraits
« on: January 20, 2015, 10:25:54 PM »
I have the 1.8 and its my favorite lens for portraits.  I never liked the 50mm focal length.. 
I didn't have my 85 for a couple weeks due to some lens debris.. that was slightly painful.  glad to have it back.  cheap but really awesome performer imo.  I can also attest to the keeper rates.  For $280, I'm not complaining!  :))

I have no idea how the 85L performs but I'm sure it's great!

I've been trying to avoid the square nds.. quite expensive and bulky with the holders.  Thanks everyone!

I'm just going to say that it better not be another rebel.  The t3i is still selling so well and honestly, the t4i and t5i are identical.  Fail Canon.   ;D

It could be the world's smallest FF dslr.  Canon already did it with the SL1/100D.    :P  i say that because the top lcd, the articulating screen (compete with D750?), on/off switch, and side card slot (it looks like).  will see if this hype leads up to anything. 

This is the perfect discussion for me.  I have the 10-22mm and I was going to buy a tiffen 77mm variable ND filter.  But if I can't use it at <24mm (I'm assuming FF values) then what's the point.  I was planning on using it for blurring clouds and waves... It seems like the best value for money?

Got myself a canon 60mm ef-s macro for $280.   ;D  It's a different world of photography now.  haha!

Thats a great lens. I have have used it many times on my wifes 600D :)

I've been trying to take some macros here and there..  It is very sharp and fast focusing.  Feels alright in the hands.  in short, I need to look up how to take good macro shots as it is not the easiest thing to do.   ;D

Lenses / Re: Lens internal part falling off? its a refurb lens
« on: December 24, 2014, 12:53:15 AM »
Thank you all!  I just sent the lens today to the service center in costa mesa, ca.  I didn't want to part with it but it needs to be fixed.  ;)

The "string of plastic" or whatever it is was inbetween the lens elements.  I managed to shake the lens to the point of getting it to the very sides of the lens.  I could just use it but I rather get rid of the excess now.  Definitely inside the lens.  lol  I know that much.   ;D

I don't have to worry about return shipping since it's under warranty, correct?

Lenses / Lens internal part falling off? its a refurb lens
« on: December 18, 2014, 11:39:40 PM »

This is my 85mm 1.8 lens that I bought from Canon as a refurb lens.  It's still under warranty but I wanted to ask you folks if this is something off the internals.  I have never opened up a lens so I have no idea..  Basically, I was doing a family photosession and after the shoot, I noticed that a black strand was showing from the side of the lens.  I just shook the lens and twisted the focus ring a few times and there it is.  I would be shocked if that came from the outer environment as I take very good care of my lenses.  I have not had any issues with refurb lenses so far and so this is disappointing.  Especially since I have not had this lens for more than 6 months now.  Would you guys recommend opening and cleaning it myself?  Maybe its an easy fix?  Thank you!

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Deal: Canon EOS Rebel SL1 w/18-55 IS STM $323
« on: December 16, 2014, 02:37:25 PM »
a SL2 or 200D must be coming soon. probably the same sensor with DPAF, more AF points, and wifi/gps. Only gripe I have is the size is too small for me.  Thus it becomes more difficult to take a nice photo compared to a larger dslr because my hands just can't hold it to my face so close together with comfort.  There is added shake because of that.. I just have to be aware. I wish canon offered a battery grip.   :P  My t2i served me better in that sense.  It is a very light camera though! 

EOS Bodies / Re: Patent: Canon EF-S 11-24mm f/3.5-4.5
« on: November 18, 2014, 03:03:28 PM »
This is a confusing patent.. but then imo, I think it would be nice to see an update to the 10-22mm to compliment the 7D2.  In making it more "L" quality in terms of build and add weathersealing.  Maybe add IS but that isn't a deal-maker or breaker at this focal length.  A constant f4 aperture would be a winner as well, esp for video.   But I hope they don't kill the focal length to 11mm... 10mm and 11mm is quite significant.

Woot!  Nice shot Dylan!

this lens is so freaking sexy.  just sayin..  the recent lenses are aesthetically better than previous lenses.  not just canon. 

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: 40mm stm verses 35mm IS lens?
« on: October 18, 2014, 01:19:21 AM »
The 40mm f/2.8 lens is a heck of a deal, but the 35mm f/2 IS is in a very different league.  When my 8 yr old daughter wants to go out and explore the joys of photography, I send her out with my old 5D classic and the 40mm pancake.  The body is a bit big for her hands (I don't have a smaller, cheaper model for her to use), but the pancake is small, light, and easy to use.  I don't personally have much of a use for it, but the 35mm IS would be something I'd use often.  That whole f stop advantage the 35mm lens has makes a big deal in low light environments.

yes.  they are both very very different lenses.  Personally, I don't use my 40 pancake that much.  even if you don't need the IS, I'm very particular on ergonomics.  it's going to be much easier to use for manual focusing and USM is faster than the STM motor.  and the wire-focusing thing... I really don't like that much.  It's small, light, and cheap.  If you don't need the smallest of lenses, the 35mm is really a great lens.
