Lenses / UWA for a lady - crop user, EOS 700D
« on: May 31, 2014, 09:34:28 AM »
Hey folks,

I'm looking for an UWA to fit a 700D for a lovely photog friend of mine.
Its gonna be used for landscape so the 2.8 is a bonus but not needed.

So far i have been looking at

EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM

Tokina 11-16 (I dont really get all the different versions...)

Sigma 10-20 4,5-5,6

Canon 10-22

I got the old sigma 4,5-5,6 and am not tooo happy with it....

Any input? Thanks alot!

Third Party Manufacturers / Sigma announces dp Quattro

Reinvention of camera, reinvention of dp

SIGMA dp Quattro

The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce the new generation of high image quality compact cameras “SIGMA dp” that incorporates a newly developed Foveon X3 direct image sensor (generation name: “Quattro”).

Unique and without peer among image sensors, the Foveon direct image sensor is similar to traditional color film in that its multiple layers capture all of the information that visible light transmits. Along with Sigma’s proprietary image processing technology, this sensor produces incredible resolution, precise gradation, gorgeous color, breathtaking realism with a 3D feel. In other words, full-bodied image quality.

For the new dp series, we rethought and redesigned every aspect of the camera, including the sensor, engine, lens, and body. While retaining its famous textural expression, which seems to give form to the air itself, the updated Foveon direct image sensor produces images that are more colorful, rich, deep, and faithful than ever before.

To a radical degree, the new-generation dp series embodies Sigma’s philosophy of creating cameras that produce works of art. Featuring the highest level of fundamental performance, this series unites artistic expression and daily experience as no other cameras can.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Advice on getting a landscape setup!
« on: December 17, 2013, 05:38:36 AM »
Hey there,

I was just wondering, how i could improve my landscape stuff and the "move to fullframe" is buggin me for quite some time.

I currently enjoy shooting with a 7D and a t2i with magic lantern and a sigma 10-20mm lens but i am missing a bit of detail and sharpness in my landscape stuff.

So what would you do if you are on a tight budget (I do not earn money from the pics) but want to advance.

I thought about getting a 6D + a Samyang 24mm TS or the 17-40mm ....but that would mean that i have to sell another body and some lenses...

Or would the move to a Canon 10-22mm be a serious improvement??

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Buying advice -> 60D too bulky
« on: July 27, 2013, 04:51:16 AM »
Hey guize,

so a girl was just asking me, what dslr I could recommend her.
She tried out a 60D and found it too bulky in her lovely tiny hands...

Main focus should be on landscapes, people, "sports".

I think she does not need a dslr because something mirrorless might just do that as good.
But because I dont own a mirrorless camera i thought i might ask you lot!

Any recommendations?

Thank you!


It's in german but it might interest some people waiting for the new version.

EDIT: shooting starts at 5:00
