Lenses / Advice needed on possible 100-400 L Lens Trade
« on: November 14, 2014, 09:27:17 PM »
I received a CL offer to trade the New in Box 24-70L f/4 IS Lens I have listed to sell for a used 100-400 L Lens.  No box on the 100-400, just the Caps, Hood and Tripod Mount.  It sounds like another photographer that is making the offer.

My question to the forum is, would you do it?  (From a value and selling perspective, not a lens comparison perspective.)  And are there any known issues with the 100-400 L that I should be aware of and check for specifically when I inspect it?

I'm thinking it's possible the used 100-400 L might actually sell faster and for maybe more money than the 24-70 f/4 IS (even New).

Thanks in Advance.

SOLD LOCALLY TO A NICE GIRL, JUNIOR IN HIGH SCHOOL, Shooting some impressive images of concerts.

Here is a link to the Craigslist listing I have submitted for my local DFW, Texas area.
http://dallas.craigslist.org/mdf/pho/4748998471.html


Canon EOS 6D Digital SLR Camera w Extra Battery - $1425 (N. Arlington)

This is a USA Model – (Not Grey Market)

This Canon 6D Camera was purchased new and has been lightly used .  It is in LIKE NEW condition with the box and none of the included accessories were ever used except the battery and charger.  THIS CAMERA WORKS PERFECTLY.  I’m listing it to sell because I am getting a bit of ‘selling fever’.  I have several cameras listed currently and I figured I would just see what sells first.  If you want to spend a bit less or need something different, I’m also selling my 60D and 70D.  If you want to spend more and get the current best crop sensor camera on the planet, check out the New in Box 7D Mark II I’m also selling.  I honestly love this 6D and if some of the other stuff sells first, I might just keep it.  The 24-105L lens listed on the box was not included when I bought it.  The dealer sold it separately.  The camera is now outside of the warranty period but it was purchased new from an authorized dealer if that is important to you.

NOTE: The camera is pictured with a special hand strap that I will remove before sale.  Unless you want to pay me an additional $80 for the strap, I’ll keep it since I use this strap on all my cameras.

Prices are negotiable but please don't waste my time with low-ball offers.  Camera is in perfect shape and I am selling it in good faith.  If you have any questions regarding the camera, I can probably answer them.  I am an experienced photographer.

I will meet you in a public place and accept cash for payment after inspection and purchase.  I'll arrange shipping and payment with forum members directly.

You will LOVE USING THIS CAMERA.  It is an amazing Full Frame camera that offers spectacular image quality for a very affordable price.  Versatile and great for everything, walk around, event and LOW LIGHT photography.  It shoots in low light better than any other camera.  The full frame sensor allows maximum creativity especially if you want to use a wide lens.  Video is great as well.  The 6D has been very well reviewed and is still a current model from Canon...

This is a copy of the Craigslist listing I am currently running locally here in the DFW, Texas area.
http://dallas.craigslist.org/mdf/pho/4748087848.html

Canon 70D DSLR Camera - $850
Canon EF-S 18-55mm STM Lens - $135
BOTH Canon 70D DSLR Camera + 18-55mm STM Lens - $950 (Save $35 buying both)

The Canon 70D Camera was purchased directly from Canon as a refurbished camera kit about 2 months ago. It is LIKE NEW condition with the box. WORKS PERFECTLY. I'm listing it to sell because I am getting a bit of 'selling fever'. I have several cameras listed currently and I figured I would just see what sells first. If you want to spend a bit less, I'm also selling my 60D. If you want to spend more and get the current best crop sensor camera on the planet, check out the New in Box 7D Mark II I'm also selling. I honestly love this 70D and if the 7D Mark II sells first, I'll pull this listing. The Canon EF-S 18-55mm STM Lens can be purchased separately if desired. There is no box for the lens since it came in the box with the 70D camera.

The Canon EF-S 18-55mm STM Lens is in LIKE NEW condition (but without a box). It focuses accurately and quickly and offers Image Stabilization (is) and a STM Motor for quiet operation during video use. This lens is very lightweight and works great on the 70D. Sorry I didn't photograph the lens, it is in the box and I didn't think of it!

LENS NOTE: The lens will only work on Canon EOS EF-S Mount APS-C crop sensor cameras like the xxD and Rebel cameras. It will NOT mount on a Full Frame camera like the 6D, 5D or 1D series, etc.

Prices are negotiable but please don't waste my time with low-ball offers. Camera is in perfect shape and I am selling it in good faith. If you have any questions regarding the camera, I can probably answer them.

I will meet you in public place and accept cash for payment after inspection and purchase.  We can arrange payment and shipping.

You will LOVE USING THIS CAMERA AND LENS. Versatile and great for everything, esp walk around, event and SPORTS photography due to it be capable of 7 fps. Video is revolutionary with the new Dual Pixel sensor for superior dynamic focusing. Video and difficult shots are made easier due to the swivel LCD. The 70D has been very well reviewed and is still a current model from Canon...

Video & Movie / Great Video on Polaris Off Road Course!
« on: November 05, 2014, 09:23:43 PM »
Whatever you do, don't watch this video!  Be warned... if you do watch it, you'll likely be tempted to spend some serious cash on a new Polaris!  Or on new video equipment and drones!  Or both!  (What I want to see is the 'making of' video on both how they built the course and how many runs they had to make repeatedly in order to practice/learn the course and then to get all the amazing shots on camera!  There are some incredible pans and camera angles presented here!  This video shows what being really good with a camera drone(s) can do!

SOLD LOCALLY to a nice guy that does high volume eBay selling and gun restoration.  Another interesting conversation!   :D

This is a copy of the local Craigslist listing I am currently running to sell this lens.
http://dallas.craigslist.org/mdf/pho/4746805466.html

This listing is for a BRAND NEW Canon 24-70mm f/4L USM AutoFocus Zoom Lens. Serial number 0620006567. This lens is NEW in box and it retails for $1000 new. This lens was just purchased and is even still within the 30 day return window. While I'll negotiate a little bit, please don't waste my time with low-ball offers, this sale is already a great deal. You are getting a brand new lens for the price of a used lens.

This is a USA version lens with full warranty. NOT GREY MARKET!

I will meet you in public place and accept cash for payment after lens inspection and purchase.  We can arrange payment & shipping if you are not local to the DFW, Texas area.  I also have the 7D Mark II Camera (New in Box) this lens was shipped with which I am selling separately if you are interested in that as well.

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/898652-USA/Canon_6313b002_EF_24_70mm_f_4_0L_IS.html

You will LOVE THIS LENS. This is a new/similar design of the popular 24-70 f/2.8 vII lens at less than half the price. It is an extremely versatile Walk-Around/All-Purpose zoom lens. It has the image quality and razor thin sharpness of the f/2.8 version but also adds new Hybrid Image Stabilization and a serious Macro feature which the big boy lacks. It also features superior weather sealing compared to many other L series lenses. Great for either Full Frame or APS-C sensor cameras.

FYI -- I have over 700 positive feedback on eBay. Rest assured this is a genuine offer, not a scam. I look forward to meeting you. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Canon 60D DSLR Camera - $525
Tamron 18-270 VC PZD Lens - $325
BOTH Canon 60D DSLR Camera + Tamron 18-270 VC PZD Lens - $825 (Save $25 buying both)


Canon 60D Camera is in USED/LIKE NEW condition with the box. Purchased new from FTW Camera about 3 years ago. WORKS PERFECTLY. Probably about 25K actuations. I'm simply selling it because I haven't used it much since I recently got the 70D. NOTE: The 60D box in the pictures is a body+lens kit box. The "Body" sticker on the front was put there by the dealer since they had removed the lens and sold it separately. There is no 18-200 kit lens! The Tamron 18-270 Lens can be purchased separately if desired. I don't think I have the box for the lens which is why I thought I would just sell it with the camera. Most of the accessory stuff in the box like the camera strap, cables, etc were never used and were simply left wrapped in the box.

Tamron 18-270 f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (B008) Lens is in USED/GOOD condition (but without a box). It focuses accurately and quickly and offers the Tamron versions of built-in Image Stabilization (VC) and Ultrasonic Motor (PZD) for quiet operation. This lens is well suited and works great on the 60D. I do have the lens hood, I just forgot to put it on for the pictures.
LENS NOTE 1: The lens will only work on Canon EOS EF-S Mount APS-C crop sensor cameras like the xxD and Rebel cameras. It will NOT mount on a Full Frame camera like the 6D, 5D or 1D series, etc.
LENS NOTE 2: The Tamron 18-270 f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD (B008) Lens is perfect except that the small red LOCK switch wiggles slightly. It has always been that way and it has always worked fine regardless.

Prices are negotiable but please don't waste my time with low-ball offers. Camera is in great shape and I am selling it in good faith. If you have any questions regarding the camera, I can probably answer them.

I will meet you in public place and accept cash for payment after inspection and purchase.  We'll work out the shipping if you're not local to the DFW Texas area.

You will ENJOY USING THIS CAMERA AND LENS. Versatile and great for everything, esp walk around and event photography. The lens is sharp and has an amazing All-In-One zoom ratio that is extremely versatile. Video and difficult shots are made easier due to the swivel LCD. The 60D has been well reviewed and it uses the same sensor as the more expensive Canon 7D camera...

!!NOT GREY MARKET!! - BOTH HAVE USA WARRANTY -- !!NOT GREY MARKET!!

Camera and Lens are BRAND NEW in the box. Camera is FAST SELLER and SOLD OUT everywhere. It is a HUGE HIT! It was just released a few days ago. Some stores haven't even received stock yet! (It's still in pre-order status at B&H and SOLD OUT on Amazon (off and on). This camera and lens were just received this week (11/03/14) and are still in 30 day return window. (I'll sell them together or separately.)

Please don't waste my time with low-ball offers. I've already lowered the price as far as I think I need to.

UPDATE 11-15-14: I shot a swim meet with the 7D2 last night and it is AMAZING! The camera has now been well tested and WORKS FLAWLESSLY! I shot about 1600 images with it and the DEFLICKER FEATURE works great! See this link to understand what it is... http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1326987/4#12666555

Why am I selling this camera?? I jumped on a good deal and I'm passing the deal on. If I don't sell it soon, I'll probably just keep it. If it does sell, I'll probably buy another one soon. I'm an experienced photographer and I wanted to confirm this camera was trouble free and also confirm that it works as well as the reviews say it does. I was very impressed! (And you will be too!) If you have any questions regarding the camera, I can probably answer them.

I'm also selling the 24-70 f/4L IS Macro Lens it came with if you are interested in that as well. If you buy both items, I'll include a brand new 32GB 400X Lexar SD Card. I will meet you in public place and accept cash for payment after inspection and purchase.  Forum members can PM me and we'll work out the shipping, payment, etc if you don't live in/near DFW, Texas.[/size][/font][/color]

You will LOVE THE 7D2 CAMERA. Great for everything, esp SPORTS photography. That's what it was designed for. It can shoot at up to 10 fps!! It's superb for outdoor photography as well with extra weather sealing and a rugged magnesium body. This camera was highly anticipated for the last year, it is hard to get and is selling out everywhere. I don't think a bad review exists. I did the work for you...

From time to time, I notice that a fellow CR member is located in my city.  So I figured, why not see how many more there are?

If you wish, reply to this thread with the city that you reside in.  (And perhaps country if not in the U.S.)

For the record, I'm from the Dallas/Fort Worth area in (Arlington) in Texas.  U S A

Heck, who knows, maybe a small meetup would be in the works for some of us.   :D

9
I'll update this in the next day or two with more detailed specs and a picture or two.  (Hint, it looks like a svelte black laptop.)  Feel free to contact me with questions.  And there have been several threads on CR discussing laptops for photography.

After a glass of wine or two, I have finally decided to sell my W520 Thinkpad.  So you should buy it right away before I sober up!   :o

Keep in mind that IT and computers are my business.  I shoot pictures for fun.  I read the CR forum for fun.  The W520 is a beast.  There are a multitude of reasons to have one as a photographer.  The primary reason is the 1920x1080 HD+ IPS High Color Gamut Display.  After that, you should consider the multiple drive options.  It can be docked.  It has a discrete graphic adapter built in that can drive multiple external displays.  And all Thinkpad keyboards are the best in the industry, bar none.

Another advantage is buying it from ME.  No really, I'm serious.  If you wish, I'll work with you and configure it however you like.  Heck, if I like you and you play your cards right (you know, like you BUY IT) I might even offer to support you remotely for a short time.   8)

Anyway, this is a limited time offer for CR members only!  (Limited time because I'll eventually sell it.)

The basic specs are...

Lenovo Thinkpad W520 model 4276-39U laptop w/ i7-2720QM 2.20 Ghz CPU, 15.6" HD+ IPS screen. (1920 x 1080)

It has been upgraded with the following:
256 GB internal mSATA SSD Card in place of stock hard drive with Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
2.5" SATA Drive Bay still empty!  (Allowing a large secondary hard drive to be installed up to 2TB.)
16 GB RAM with 2 memory bays still free (allowing 16GB more RAM = 32 GB TOTAL RAM if desired)
It also has Bluetooth 3.0 integrated, web cam, fingerprint reader, WiFi, DVD/RW, and all the other stuff you would expect.  I'll customize it to the moon if you like but I already souped it up where it matters.  (For great photography performance, etc.)

Here are some great reviews of the W520.  It's not a normal laptop by any means.  It's a workstation replacement designed for engineering companies and specialty industries like graphics and photography.

Sold to a nice local buyer.  I'm looking forward to selling something to a CR member soon though!    ;)

Canon 24mm f/1.4L - II EF USM AutoFocus Lens - $1350 - Arlington, Texas

I'm about to list it on eBayI dropped the price for the last time here and on CL.  Price is now less negotiable.

This lens is in Mint/Like New condition and it retails for $1750 new.  Please don't waste my time with low-ball offers.  Lens is offered as-is but I stand behind it as a solid A+ lens that is in pristine condition.  I ship with UPS or FedEx for better tracking and I pack extremely well.  I also have over 700 feedback (100%) on eBay as "rl01" since 1999.  I've been selling stuff online for a long time.  http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=rl01&ftab=AllFeedback&myworld=true&rt=nc

This listing is for a Canon 24mm f/1.4L - II EF USM AutoFocus Lens.  Serial number 2097890.  The lens hasn't been used much and I have finally decided to part with it. The lens comes with box, hood, lens pouch, lens cap, warranty card, etc.  (Everything it comes with new that has never left the box.  I leave everything including the hood and cap in the box and use my own caps, etc instead.)  The lens is in perfect condition and a 10/10.   It is superb in low light and extremely sharp.  It focuses fast and has beautiful bokeh.

Note:  I also have a pristine Hoya HD UV Filter (pictured) that has lived on the lens since I bought it.  It costs over $100+ new but I'll include it for only an additional $50 if desired.

You will LOVE THIS LENS. Great for everything, esp low light indoor and event photography. It's superb for outdoor landscapes and night sky photography.  The Canon EF 24mm f/1.4 L II USM Lens is, without question, Canon's best-performing (optically and physically) and best-built autofocus 24mm lens. If you want the best Canon 24mm AF lens, look no longer. This is it.  I don't think a bad review exists out there. I did the work for you...

Product Description:
Canon's newest fixed length L-series lens, the EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM, incorporates the newest in Canon lens technology for spectacular sharpness and impressive performance at all settings. It features two high-precision, large-diameter aspherical lenses for sharpness across the sensor, even in peripheral areas of full-frame sensors. Lens elements have a newly-designed anti-reflective SWC (Sub Wavelength Coating) that departs from conventional coatings by using an extremely fine structure that minimizes ghosting and flaring across the lens surface, regardless of the angle with which light enters or exits. It also features two UD lens elements to minimize chromatic aberrations, incorporates rear-focusing, ultrasonic, quiet and high-speed AF with full-time manual override. A circular aperture provides beautiful out-of-focus detail and offers legendary dust- and water-resistant L-series construction using only lead-free glass.

Photography Technique / Swim Pictures - Share your tips/ideas!
« on: August 28, 2014, 01:44:51 PM »
Hi all,

I'm starting my forth year of swim team shooting for my sons' high school.  Up to now I've felt like I was on a learning curve as my gear/technique improved, esp the first year.  Now I'm looking for ideas to be more creative and keep it interesting.  The venues are the same and basically repeat every year.  The rare events that are held outdoors are well lit and colorful.  Unfortunately, the majority of the pics happen inside poorly lit natatoriums.  So there is always plenty of post processing happening to fix WB, lighting, clarity, shadows, etc.  Any ideas on post processing improvements is also welcome.

I have shot the last 3 years with a 60D and then a 5D3.  The lenses improved as I acquired better gear.  Now I have a 70-200/2.8L-II and a 70-300L and I have used a Kenko 1.4 TC with both on the 5D3.  I now also have a 70D to try out.  So I'm trying to also decide what lens combos I'll do now.  I'm considering putting the 5D3 on backup status (hanging left side) with a 24-105 for up close and using the 70D (faster fps, more reach) as the primary with the 70-300L or the 70-200/2.8-II with/without TC.

To summarize, I'm looking for composition and shot ideas, post enhancement tips and I'm looking for thoughts on lens+body combos.

Here is a link to all the swim pics I've posted from the last 3 years.  That should keep you busy for a while!   :P  (And THANK YOU!)   :D

Another thread just popped up asking about slideshow software.  This reminded me that I've been meaning to ask the CR community...

-  Favorite Authoring Software?  (ProShow, PicturesToExe, etc),
-  Tips on making a great slideshow and most important...
HOW/WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR MUSIC?  The music part has always been my biggest challenge.  I am usually interested in fast paced rock/pop music because my slideshows are about youth summer camps, etc and need to convey energy, fun and excitement.

I use ProShow Gold & Producer and I want to give PicturesToExe another try sometime when I have the time.  Any other winners out there?

Canon 24mm f/1.4L - II EF USM AutoFocus Lens - $1350 - Arlington, Texas

I'm about to list it on eBayI dropped the price for the last time here and on CL.  Price is now less negotiable.

This lens is in Mint/Like New condition and it retails for $1750 new.  Please don't waste my time with low-ball offers.  Lens is offered as-is but I stand behind it as a solid A+ lens that is in pristine condition.  I ship with UPS or FedEx for better tracking and I pack extremely well.  I also have over 700 feedback (100%) on eBay as "rl01" since 1999.  I've been selling stuff online for a long time.  http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback2&userid=rl01&ftab=AllFeedback&myworld=true&rt=nc

This listing is for a Canon 24mm f/1.4L - II EF USM AutoFocus Lens.  Serial number 2097890.  The lens hasn't been used much and I have finally decided to part with it. The lens comes with box, hood, lens pouch, lens cap, warranty card, etc.  (Everything it comes with new that has never left the box.  I leave everything including the hood and cap in the box and use my own caps, etc instead.)  The lens is in perfect condition and a 10/10.   It is superb in low light and extremely sharp.  It focuses fast and has beautiful bokeh.

Note:  I also have a pristine Hoya HD UV Filter (pictured) that has lived on the lens since I bought it.  It costs over $100+ new but I'll include it for only an additional $50 if desired.

You will LOVE THIS LENS. Great for everything, esp low light indoor and event photography. It's superb for outdoor landscapes and night sky photography.  The Canon EF 24mm f/1.4 L II USM Lens is, without question, Canon's best-performing (optically and physically) and best-built autofocus 24mm lens. If you want the best Canon 24mm AF lens, look no longer. This is it.  I don't think a bad review exists out there. I did the work for you...
