I'm just going to B&H on it's release day to pick it up.

lucky u but they havnt updated there system yet too oct 28-30th but i have the same plan but just too warn u there might be a line

And that assumes they have sufficient stock for pre-order fulfillment, both shipped and store waiting list.  They may be sold out before the product ever arrives on the first shipment.

Doubt every one will be lining up for this camera on "Black Friday" but there are a few other camera shops in the city,so I'm pretty confident I will be able to pick one up.No need to panic it's not like an XBox One or PS4 release date...lol.

ACTUALLY WE DO HAVE TOO WORRY THE ONLY STORES IN NYC THAT WILL HAVE IT
B&H ADORAMA K&M ON BROADWAY OFF CANAL STREET and MAYBE 42nd PHOTO AND BEST BESY
and every lil non pro photog and or fake photog in nyc metro area will be trying too get there hands on 1
WE ALL KNOW B&H AND ADORAMA TRADE IN DEPARTMENT WILL BE BUSY LOL
so im not goin take my chances on missing out on this phenon camera too some novice,tourist with hella $$$ or skateboard punk lol when it come too photography ya skills can only go so far without good eqipment too even it all out

yeah, he's not the one.   ;)

This should be a good alternative to 7D2.   :)

And I thought SCN is only for the G-series and camcorders.   ;D  I have to look at my old 500D if it got one.

i like fast glass so on the 7D2 I would go

new canon 10-18 EF-S for landscapes
sigma 18-35 f1.8 for most general stuff
sigma 50mm f1.4 Art Portraits
Canon 70-200 f2.8L II long stuff

and done till you want to go longer than 200....

+1.  For budget but excellent macro lens, the 100mm F2.8 USM non-L is certainly a very good alternative to the L version.

Few wild flowers from 2014.

Thanks Click and Candyman...  TCMatthews, I think a good macro will serve you well.  Those are amazing flowers.  You have to get closer.  Well, its just my 2 cents...  ;)  Btw, a 100mm f2.8 macro usm L/non-L will do just fine.

They make kickass 'speedlights' too. Cheap powerful easy buttons and best of all a audible beep when flash is ready. Bought two manual ones for the price of one 430ex2, but with same power as 580ex2. China rules!

Same here.  YN-560II.  I should have got the YN-560III instead but it's not available last time I bought.  They are working flawlessly since I got them.

Awesome shot Jon. Nice work.

Another fantabulous image!  ;)

Thanks, guys. :) Glad you like. One of my best so far. Data on that one was so good.

I'm trying a new technique. I used an Astronomik CLS filter most of the year, but it is making it really hard to get images quickly. I have so few clear nights, and I need to image for several nights to get enough subs to produce the kind of quality I got in the Elephant Trunk...that I'm trying to image without the CLS filter now. It results in more complex work in post, but...if you can work through it, you get stuff like this:



Compare that to my first two attempts at Pleiades from the original post of this thread. :D One thing I really do love about the 5D III? It's huge full frame...has a really wide field, which is just awesome for images like this.

Beautiful!!!  Been a fan of your shots Jrista.  Can you tell me any starting cheap kit I can use for Astrophotography?  Right now, I have some cheap but decent long lenses like 100mm F2.8 Macro, 70-300mm IS USM.  For starters, do I need to buy more?  Thanks!  BTW, I'm using Canon 6D.

Nice shots everyone.  Some more from my favorite travel combo, 6D + 24-105L.  Except for the second one which is shot by the nifty-fifty, almost everything is shot with 24-105L.

6D + 24-105L.  This lens while not as sharp as my 100mm macro proved its versatility many times.  Here's some almost-macro shots from this beautiful lens.  I've done a little bit of cropping so as to make the pictures really macro-like.

Photography Technique / Re: POLL: Did you peak and what did you do about it?
« on: September 21, 2014, 09:07:20 PM »
Some of the philosophies I try to adhere on.

1.  There's always something better.
2.  You're just as good as your last work.
3.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
4.  Next time, I have to do better.
5.  There's always something good in everything.
