Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art Gets Reviewed
« on: April 11, 2014, 07:08:19 AM »
on the B&H Facebook page someone said that Adorama had the lens for 899 and i got really excited but I really don't know that I will believe any of that

American pricing looks good, but it's got a UK price tag of £850 (approx  $1400) :(

I'm excited!

I'll wait for pricing before getting excited, but I'm definitely interested!

Goodness me, everyone has forgotten the golden rule...

What's Troopers budget !   He just bought an entry level camera, I'm not that convinced he's going to be out shopping for L lenses this week :-/

Essentials are...
$50 - a screw in ND filter for slowing waterfalls down, use a rucksack as a steady base
$100 - Lightroom and shoot in raw

Wanna spend more ?
$200 - entry level tripod
$300 - entry level third party lens covering a wide angle - I'd look at this first for Iceland
$300 - entry level third party super zoom
$500 - that's opening up lots of options for you

Good post.

I'd also suggest a couple of decent microfibre cloths for cleaning body/lenses. A spare battery is a good idea. If you're going to be hiking any distances, a comfortable rucksack is an essential. You can find some with two compartments - one for waterproofs, food etc and one below for your camera. I'd be tempted to buy a circular polarizer before a ND filter, but that's my preference.

The only half-way funny photographic April Fools I've seen is on the sigma-rumors.com site.

sigma-rumors.com is now carrying a story stating that the Australian rrp is AUS$1099. They seem fairly confident on this one...

sigma-rumors has an image from the Byelorussian site that now shows the price will be announced after 11th April, and an announcement from Sigma that the $790 price is incorrect. Sorry, I can't give the link, I've not worked out how to use the clipboard on this tablet, yet. :-[

I made my own flash diffuser out off a water bottle, some tape and some aluminum foil.  I liked it... the wife didn't.

Flash diffuser - a 1pt plastic milk carton cut down so that the base of the carton covers the flash head.

Lenses / Re: Haze filter - will it cut though the smog?
« on: October 13, 2013, 01:45:18 PM »
Just to confuse the issue - you may find that a polarising filter will do a better job of cutting through the haze.

Have a look here for an example:

Technical Support / Re: Why higher end camera underexposes images?
« on: September 16, 2013, 05:32:08 PM »
Possibly this a hangover from the days when 'pro' cameras were more likely to be used with slide film as opposed to 'consumer' cameras that were more likely to be used with print film?

Best set up for falling starts?

You could try the Betty Ford Clinic?
