Technical Support / Re: What photo printer do you use?
« on: December 13, 2014, 05:23:13 PM »
I'm using an HP Photosmart B9180 for photo printing and HP photo papers.  It's old, but produces great prints.  I don't print that much any more.  If I didn't already have the printer, I would probably not purchase one that could print 13x19 as I don't print many pictures beyond 8x10 any more.  It's a big machine that uses pigment based ink, but the cost to operate it is making it cost prohibitive.  It's about $200 for a set of 8 ink cartridges.  Not to mention the desk real estate I could gain by getting rid of it :)   For smaller prints for around the home, my canon MX860 works well too.

Canon EF-S and EF-M Lenses / Re: Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM

Some architectural pictures of Texas A&M's Kyle Field.

I've used Vello and Canon grips.  Recently, I have problems with the buttons and wheel on the vello grip.   my canon's have never had an issue.   I like the increased battery life and found a grip a necessity for my rebel to make it comfortable for me.   The grip helps me balance out my 70-200 on my 60D and 5D.

I recommend the canon grips.

And my budget will be 600 USD

With budget in mind, I would recommend a refurb 15-85 or 17-55.  The new ef-s 24 prime looks interesting too.

Here she is!  The camera came with 3 batteries, two chargers, battery grip, ac adapter/battery adapter, and the cap.  Haven't had a chance to shoot much with it yet.  Weather permitting, I'll be out this weekend to test it out.

Congrats on the sale!

Lenses / Re: What's your favourite focal length?
« on: November 19, 2014, 12:45:37 PM »
My favorite focal length ranges from 14mm to 1200mm, depending on what I'm shooting.

+1, but I stop at 300mm currently.

Software & Accessories / Re: Which SD card for Canon 70d?
« on: November 19, 2014, 12:41:02 PM »
I've been happy with sandisk and sony.  B&H is having a good sale on the sony cards right now.  They aren't as fast as the sandisk, but they appear to be faster than what the camera's can clear their buffers.   I can wait a few seconds more for a $18 32G SDHC card.

Software & Accessories / Re: Adobe Lightroom 5.7 Now Available
« on: November 19, 2014, 12:38:24 PM »
Adobe is burning through the 5.x version numbers pretty quickly ... can v6 be far behind?

Normally, they release a new version every year, but its now 1-1/2 years since version 5.  Since they release a new sub versions to keep up with new cameras being announced,  a few new sub versions are normal and expected.

I wonder if the next version will be subscription only.

Lenses / Re: 6D and BIF

I also agree that switching to a 7D MkII would be a great start.   You may find the crop factor might keep your 70-200 relevant for what you are wanting to do.   If not, then you can trade it out for the new 100-400.

Good luck!
