Lenses / Tamron 24-70 f/2.8
« on: November 16, 2013, 03:28:50 PM »
Recently purchased this awesome lens.  Went out for some wine tasting and was able to capture this great shot (in my view) but was hoping for some feedback from the experts!  What do you think about this shot? 

Lenses / 70-200 f/4 IS vs 70-200 f/2.8 non-IS
« on: October 21, 2013, 10:49:25 PM »
I recently upgraded to a 6D and I am loving it. I purchased the Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 and just received it. I am looking for a zoom lens as well and keep going back and forth between these two lenses and further, considering an extender as well.

The prices are pretty close to each other. So what would folks recommend?

Lenses / Best Filters for 24-105 f/4
« on: August 08, 2013, 11:07:30 PM »
Recently purchased a Canon 6D and LOVING it.  I have the 24-105 f/4 and 50 f/1.8.  What filters would folks recommend?  I mainly photograph portraits and landscapes.  Welcome thoughts!  Thanks!

EOS Bodies / So I made the jump to FF - now what?
« on: July 07, 2013, 03:19:03 PM »
So I finally made the jump and upgraded my T2i to a 6D.  I am LOVING it.  I know that there are lots of critics out there that have negative things to say about the 6D, but being an amateur / hobbyist, I could not be happier.  The one downside (which I obviously knew going into this) was not being able to use my EF-S lenses (Canon 10-22 and Tamron 18-270) so I am in the process of selling those. 

I currently have the Canon 24-105 and the Canon 50 f/1.8 lenses for the 6D.  I don't have a substantial budget, but I am thinking that I need to get a zoom lens as well.  What do people recommend?  I am currently between the following:

Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L IS USM Lens
Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens
Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM Lens (I know there are always rumors of this lens being upgraded - but let's put that aside for now). 
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 L USM Lens
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 L IS USM Lens

Would appreciate thoughts of the group and especially experience from those with the Canon 6D who own any of the above lenses. 


EOS Bodies / Recommendations for 6D
« on: June 25, 2013, 12:58:30 PM »
So I just received my new Canon 6D -upgraded from a T2i - very excited!  Was wondering if any other 6D users out there have recommendations for settings  (coloration, etc.) I should be thinking about for portrait photography. 

Would appreciate any other recommendations that folks have regarding the camera!

I am looking to upgrade my equipment and looking to sell a few items.  Which sites do you get the best price for your products? 

EOS Bodies / T2i Upgrade Help Needed
« on: June 12, 2013, 03:21:01 PM »
I am a current owner of a Canon T2i.  I have enjoyed learning about DSLRs using this camera but I am ready for an upgrade to the camera body.  My budget is not unlimited (as much as I want the 5DM3, I can't afford it right now).  I currently have the following lenses:

Canon EF-S 10-22mm
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8
Canon EF 24-105 f/4
Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC

Even though half my lenses are crop lenses, I would consider moving to a full frame as I can still use the EF-S lenses on the side. 

I am usually taking portrait shots of friends and family at various events (bbq, indoor parties, etc.) and landscape shots. 

I have looked at the 6D, the 7D and the 60D quite a bit, but really not sure what to do.  I want something that is solid compared to the T2i for moving objects (people dancing, kids running around, etc.) and performs well in low light environments.  Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks! 

Software & Accessories / Aperture Plug-ins
« on: April 14, 2013, 10:30:30 AM »
Just recently started working with Aperture on my iMac for post-processing.  I really like it but interested in finding some recommendations for free (or cheap) plug-ins.  Any recommendations? 

PowerShot / Best Low Light Pocket Size Camera
« on: February 01, 2013, 01:35:06 PM »
What are thoughts from the group on the Canon S110 in low light conditions?  I had the S95 and found it to not be very good in those conditions. 

Any thoughts on other compact cameras (that can fit comfortably in your pocket) that perform very well in low light? 

Lenses / Lens suggestions requested
« on: January 30, 2013, 01:23:29 PM »
I currently have the following lenses and looking for advice on "what's next"...welcome thoughts of the group

Canon EF-S 10-22mm
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8
Canon EF 24-105 f/4
Tamron 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC

The Tamron lens is an OK lens but I am finding limitations from an image quality perspective.  I typically use the 24-105 as more of my everyday lens now that I have a started to become a stronger photographer. 

So what do folks think I should consider next?  My problem with choosing is that I love taking portrait shots  but landscape is a lot of what I shoot as well. 

So what say you wise ones? 

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 6D or wait for New 7D?
« on: December 26, 2012, 04:37:53 PM »
Welcome thoughts from the group.  I currently have a T2i and I am really itching for an upgrade.  Trying to decide whether to just go for it w/ the 6D or hold off until the new 7D comes out next year.  Thoughts?
