Street & City / Impressions of the weekend, feedback appreciated
« on: December 08, 2013, 04:42:41 PM »
I shot a party friday night and got some results that I wanted to share with you guys. I'm pretty happy with the shots i got this weekend. I was experimenting quite a lot and it was paying of for me. I could definetly  up my game in the nightclub photography area and gain some experience with color gels and off-camera flash.

The lens I used was a Tokina 12-24mm for APS-C sized sensors. The results when using long exposures, zooming and using multiple flashes are pretty interesting, especially in the range where the image circle can't cover the hole sensor of my 5D, it's almost like the light trails are coming out of the picture.

Tell me what you think, I really appreciate every feedback. :)

EOS Bodies - For Stills / How (and why) does sensor size change DOF?
« on: July 15, 2013, 01:59:12 AM »
Hey guys,
I've read it multiple times now and i really dont understand it. Why does the sensor size affect the DOF and why do FF cameras have a smaller DOF? Seems like a pretty basic question but i really couldn't wrap my head around this concept.

Lenses / Canon 100mm f/2.0 for portraits
« on: December 05, 2012, 05:16:40 PM »
Hey guys!
I just wanted to know if anybody of you has some experience with the 100mm f/2.0? I've read some pretty good reviews on it, but wanted to hear something from someone who actually uses it or used it in the past. It's a very unpopular lens, so there's not much to read about it on the net.


EOS Bodies / Where to get 5D2 firmware 2.1.1??
« on: April 11, 2012, 07:23:05 AM »
Hey guys,
i recently bought a 5D2 with pre-installed firmware 2.0.9 and wanted to try the Magic Lantern Unified Beta on it. To install Magic Lantern i need firmware version 2.1.1. I've checked the web but can't find any non-canon sources to download this firmware. Canon only has the 2.1.2 firmware available in the download section.

Any ideas where i can get it?

Thanks in advance and greetings from Germany. :)

EOS Bodies / 5D Mk II price drops in Europe?
« on: March 04, 2012, 05:28:56 PM »
Hello CR forum :) ,
I'm from Germany and i want to buy a 5D Mk II in the next month to upgrade from my 450D. I heard alot of price drops in the US but can we expect price drops in Europe as well? If so, i could spent my money on some glass instead of the body only. The 28mm 1.8 or 85mm 1.8 would be a nice addition to the 50mm 1.4 for video work.

What do you think?
