EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Should I buy 6d or 5MkIII?

Yeah, 6D will be perfect for you.

To me it seems like the Bride is looking into you for a better deal because you were the second shooter. Perhaps your prices might be lower. But what I don't understand is how she knows your photos were not included in the original set given by the event photographer...she must have been told by the event photographer or yourself you were a "tag along" so to speak where the photos were separate...I'd give the event photographer a call and let him know what's up with trying to side step him.. Maybe split the difference with him...

Lenses / Re: Hard choice the 50 1.4 or 85 1.8
« on: February 19, 2014, 03:21:53 PM »
I have booth and the 85 1.8 is better regarding focus and sharpness. I shoot them on my 5D3 and 7D, more on my 5D though. Keeping my fingers crossed for the new Sigma 50, hope its as good as their new 35...anyway, it totally depends on what your shooting to justify eather one.... "NEURO" is right though, try shooting the different lengths first then buy...but since you have the 40 I'd go with the 85....its a killer lens for the price!!

I've heard the 70-200 2.8 L IS I isn't as sharp as the IS II or non-IS versions. True?


Yes, It's not as sharp BUT its still pretty dang sharp.

Try to grab a nice used 70-200 f2.8 IS I (one) the first 2.8 IS from canon. I bought one and save a bunch, wish I never would have bought the Sigma 70-200 2.8 os hsm...it was good for about two years then started having IS issues and ring issues...anyway..luck of the draw I guess...I'd rather send a Canon in for repair then a Sigma. Plus the Canon always has a higher resale value, just take care of it

Canon General / Re: Why Scott Kelby Switched to Canon
« on: January 21, 2014, 03:19:52 PM »
I have been to four NAPP seminars down here in LA and loved each one of them, most recently with Joe McNally, before that with Mr. Kelby..at no time did eather one push a Camera brand, of which is nice because their work speaks for itself. The first one I went to was with Ben Willmore and he is a Canon User... Joe McNally was having issues with his Nikon Flash units as they are line of sight...They work over quite a distance but have issues when something remotly gets in the way...I was having fun watching him fumble around with his D4 trying to get them to work...
It was intresting to hear Scott's interview, glad he made the video.

I saw this last night...had to back it up a few times and take another look. The guy who threw his arm out and knocked the other guys camera was there first for sure. The guilty party came in way to fast on his left and  bumped the other guys shot in active sequence. I'd be pixxed too.... I got a good laugh at it.. I watched this a few times last night and it appeared that the other guy knocked the other while behind the QB's..after looking at it again in that link it looks like he didnt come in from the side and was there...none the less its pretty funny

Yeah, I do understand how the flashes work and I love working with them. My problem comes when I want one flash in ETTL and one set to manual...I can't seem to control them from the st-e3-rt very good. Also In manual mode how do I turn On/Off a group?

15min is the time it takes me just to set up the light stands and softboxes :)

Perhaps if you bothered to read the Syl Arena link I posted, you will see there is a very simple explanation of how to put on flash in group A and another in Group B, they can then be set to ETTL and Manual separately!!

I purchased Syl's Lighting for digital photography from snapshots to great shots and really liked it.

One thing I did while shooting a few weeks back using two 600's and the EX-RT3 was accidently assign one of the flashes from group A to B from on the back of the flash and adjusting later from my camera thinking one was still on Group A...I thought I was going crazy then realized what I had done...ran over to one, it was set to B the other set to B as well...AHHHH!!!! I have a hard time rembering which flash is set to group A and B as it is... A is typically my Keylight but when shooting outside for architectural I move around a lot so its easy to get messed up...I need to put an A and B sticker on my flashes so I can see them from a distance.. depending on how high up my camera is on the tripod I will use the back of my camera for controlling the flashes, otherwise the RT3 for sure...

I love using my 7D for longer range work using the 100-400, its just great. BUT...I dont use it as much due to the lack of ISO capability in low light. With that being said. If the new 7D has ISO capabilities similar to the 5DIII I will grab one as soon as it comes out.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 2 5d3's or 1d x
« on: October 05, 2013, 04:40:04 PM »
I am getting my camera (5d3) replaced and have the opportunity to sell the replacement and get factory refurbed 1d x for $3900 or spend $1600 more to have 2 5d3's so I will have a backup. Just not sure if I should jump on the 1d x since I have lived this long with 1 body or get the 2 5d3's. My main want is stop better iso performance, customizable ae adjustments, more accurate metering. Just looking for people who have both to give some insight. I do like the smaller size, silent shutter, lower weight but want a tool thats best for the job. So far events and portraits are all I have done. Also landscapes and macro.

Coming from a two body camera owner....A second body is a second camera...."Backup" helps justify a second though...
