Guys, you all misunderstood. This is the year of the lens. That means that they will release just one lens this year, that's it!

It feels like Sony to Canon is like Apple to Microsoft.
Oh...flashy, overpriced and useless versus dependable, reliable and built to get the job done?
"As everything works with lenses, no lens cannot be strong somewhere without being weak somewhere else."
Want to borrow my 200?
it has the same sensor as the Eos70D but with just more bells & whistles?
I have a sneaky feeling that maybe its going to be the same image quality as the 70D just more robust, full frame viewfinder, gazillion frames per second, wifi, gps and class leading video...So just how disappointed will you be if that is the case?
Neither surprised nor disappointed. It seems pretty likely, to me. If there's a significant IQ boost, I might be tempted to get one as a backup body...but the kind of IQ boost I'm talking about likely defies the laws of physics, so I'm not holding my breath.
Raising the center column *up* adversely affects stability. I think that is pretty self-evident.
But what about lowering the center column *down*? Down as extending below and in-between the legs of the tripod? Is that equally as unstable as raising it. Is there any stability concerns with hanging the camera below the lowered center column?
I will often flip the center column when I am taking pictures of low flowers. Is that a wise thing for me to do?
Wouldn't that lower the center of gravity of the entire apparatus... and much like hanging a sand bag on a hook on the column... it should have the same effect of adding stability. I say go for it.
I had it for 2+ years... and I really liked the 60D. I do like shooting at shallow depths of field though... and the 60D doesn't have AFMA... But if you are shooting at reasonable depth of fields, you should be golden.
Go to one of those fabric shops that sell end of rolls etc.
You'll find heaps of different materials and fabrics that you can use.
Most softboxes etc use a nylon fabric, and these can also be found at these fabric stores.
The best thing, the stuff they have is cheap as they buy fabrics from clothing manufacturers etc.
Might even be worth your while to buy some see-through coloured fabrics too as these can give some good effects.
Canon will be coming out with the new 'Canon (dont) Think' camera soon I heard. You just imagine a photo and it appears on your camera, it's pretty rad.
No need to do ANYTHING! Now THAT'S PHOTOGRAPHY!
