i think we clearly have a winner here, B&H it is! thank guys, i truly appreciate everyone's immediate response..although on Adorama's deal "New Leaf 3 Year (Drops & Spills) Warranty" included, is this a deal breaker or not?

I have little in the way of constructive criticism to offer here, however as a personal taste thing, I might have boosted the blacks a bit more, but I can't say for sure without having the raw image in front of me.  I like the imperfect symmetry in this shot.

I would just encourage you to keep using that lens/body combination at Golden Hour, you will quickly develop a personal candid portrait style and you will get some great images.

Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it...I was really aiming for that golden hour, but my son didn't wanna sleep at the time I'd like him to but all in all, I think I was still able to capture some pretty good photos.

Portrait / Maximus's Cake Smash
« on: July 15, 2013, 12:00:19 PM »
shot my son Maximus cake smash for his 1st birthday coming up this Thursday, he's crying on this photo because we took the cake away from him, because he was eating too much of the icing. Any feedback would help on how to get myself better. Shot this with Canon 6D & 85mm f1.8mm lens
f/2.8, 1/250 sec., ISO 1000
I was aiming for 6-6:30pm but he was taking a nap & ended up shooting around 7:45pm which was kinda getting dark, thank god for my 6D low light performance.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Tips for my very first shoot
« on: June 01, 2013, 12:26:51 PM »
So I recently purchased the 6D (body only) and refurbished 85mm f/1.8 last week. And today is my sister-in law's sweet 16,  and my wife just informed me that i'm suppose to be taking her photos because they can't find a pro photographer that suits their budget. I literally don't have any other other accessories to go with but the body & lens mentioned above AND I definitely do not have any experience at all although I have been shooting Manual, raw files as well ever since I received the camera. Anyways, what's the usual settings for indoor, with bright lights., etc. Btw, this will occur in 5 hrs from now so Jesus help me now.

Appreciate all the kind feedbacks.

EOS Bodies / Re: Good Deal for Used Canon 7D?
« on: April 24, 2013, 09:08:46 AM »
sorry, i was given a used Nikon D80 (pretty old) but still usable, I recently rented teh Sigma 35mm to go with and it was fantastic. Although, I'm currently saving up for Canon 6D and then my friend informed just yesterday about this deal. I know its a great deal but thats the dilemma I'm in now, keep saving up for the 6D or hop on this deal now.

EOS Bodies / Good Deal for Used Canon 7D?
« on: April 24, 2013, 08:16:40 AM »
A friend of mine knows that I've been looking for a new camera and his friend is selling his for $700 for body only with 3K shutter count with 1 battery and charger. $820 for the body, battery grip, 4 batteries, 2 chargers, and memory card. The Owner had it for 2 years.

I'm thinking of purchasing it although I really want the Canon 6D coz of low light performance.

What do you guys think or what would you do?

Lenses / Canon 6D (Body Only) which lens to purchase?
« on: February 26, 2013, 08:41:36 AM »
Hey Canon family, I have little dilemma. I'm thinking of purchasing the Canon 6D (body only) but I just want peoples opinion who have owned the specific lenses that caught my attention. The Sigma 35mm f/1.4 & Canon 135mm f/2L. This is going to be my first DLSR and I've been doing extensive research before I bite the bullet coz I know that its going to be a good investment. I have a 7 months old son and I just want to document his growth as much as I can (portraits). My wife and I are also going to take him to my homeland (beautiful island of Philippines, I know My man Manny going KO'd bad! he's probably still sleeping, jk) (street photography, landscape, architechture). Anyways, any feedback from pros, amateurs, etc. on what lens YOU would purchase first if this your first camera would be much appreciated. Thanks everyone.

promise, this should be my last question to you guys. EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS vs. 24-70mm f/4 L vs. Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS? Which one would you prefer to own between the 3 lenses, Although 17-55's build is probably the downfall against the other lenses.

Thank you everyone, i truly appreciate all the suggestions. I am in no rush to get one now but very eager as well on purchasing with one click away. Now just debating if I should wait for the rumored 70D or get the (most likely) bargained 60D (which is the one I'm leaving towards to more than T4i)

EOS Bodies / Camera (Body Only) or Camera with Bundle Kit

Hi everyone, this is my very first post so please be gentle. I just recently became a father of a 5 months old baby, and me and my wife likes to take our son for his photoshoot every 3 months. Well, having your child photographed by pro does not come cheap so instead of doing that, I'm going to purchase my very first DLSR camera, debating on Canon 60D or T4i, although I really want the Canon 6D or better yet the Canon 5D Mark III (out of my budget) and learn the basics of photography. So, I just want peoples opinion on what's smarter for point and shoot person to entry level photographer on what to purchase beforehand. Is it better for me to buy a camera with bundle kit or just buy camera (body only) because a friend of mine told me that its very important to have great lens. I also want to know peoples suggestions on what lenses I would need for portrait/low-light landscape/cityscape photography. I've read a few must have lenses, Canon EF 50mm f1.8 (for the low price) & Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM (for quality).

Thanks everyone, appreciate it!
