EOS-M / Re: Canon EOS M3 in Q3 of 2014?
« on: April 15, 2014, 02:23:23 PM »
I was very close to buying a eos m with 18-55mm kit lens when it was around 330usd here in norway, but i decided against it. I'm still considering buying a 22mm ef-m lens becasue they are so cheap now, and then wait for the release of the next M.

What kind of lenses do you think the new potential eos m cameras will be sold with? A new version of the 18-55 perhaps?

Google translate automatic language recognition tells me that lense is a Norwegian word. I didn't find this word for any other language I suspected of being similar.

I wonder how many Norwegians we have on this forum?

The norwegian word for lens is "linse", although the word "objektiv" is acctually more commonly used when refering to a photographic lens. "Lense"(with the second "e" also being pronounced), is a verb meaning "to empty something of water".

When it comes to the lens vs lense discussion I did some searching, and it seems that "lense" is acctually listed as an alternative spelling in some dictionaries. It seems however that lens is regarded as the only correct spelling by most native english speakers.

Consider looking for a used 28mm f1.8. I think it works really well with aps-c sized sensors, giving a equivalent full frame view of  ~45mm. I used almost exclusively this lens with my 600d.

How does one get such a clear picture of the milky way in an area with light pollution?

I always get really excited when I see good deals such as this. Then I remember I live in norway :(

So the rumors were true! Interesting, although I'm not yet convinced. Looking forward to see how the auto focus performs.

The video shown here includes a comparison of EOS M vs EOS M2 AF speed. Seems a lot quicker

Best thing about this camera is that it matches a lot of the big white L-lenses  :P

Lenses / Re: I'm done - I have all the lenses I need

I already have better gear than a photographer at my skill level needs. I won't buy anything else before I've taken tons of pictures and truly improved. For now I will stick with my own personal "holy budget trinity":
Canon 6D
-28mm f1.8
-50mm f1.4
-100mm f2.0

Lenses / Re: Do you usually shoot your lenses wide open?
« on: September 30, 2013, 04:32:52 PM »
I use my 50mm f1.4 a lot, but I find that the DoF @ f1.4 is just a bit too shallow most of the time. So unless I'm doing portraits or creative stuff I mostly keep it at f 2.0 or higher.

 Same applies to the 28mm f1.8 I own. It's just not sharp enough wide open for most stuff.

The 100mm f2.0 however, I keep wide open almost exclusively!

I saw my cat lurking around the yard, approached him and called his name. He turned around to look at me and I captured this single frame.

Shot with an ef 50mm 1.4.

I used my old 600D in tempratures around -20°C for 1-2hours several times and I never had any problems. Haven't had the chance to test my newly acquired 6D yet.
