So many fine and colorful waterscapes here; with places I envy and wished someday I could photograph.

First of my share.

Third Party Lenses (Sigma, Tamron, etc.) / Re: Helios 44-2 58mm f/2.0 M42
« on: October 24, 2013, 01:49:46 AM »
Had mine shipped from Ukraine yesterday, should arrive in two weeks. To my surprise I bought the Helios 44M instead of the 44-2.
Forgot I've wishlisted both lenses but when I actually purchased it the other day the 44-2 was gone and I've purchased the 44M straight-ahead forgetting they were different models.  :-\

44M costs a little bit over the 44-2,  but other than that I don't know the difference. Pics on the web doesn't show much difference tbh.

But what can you say guys? I won't be surprised if 44-2 ends up being voted.  ::)

So a fast focusing lens is the other half of the story?

Software & Accessories / Photo Studio emulation anybody?
« on: May 05, 2013, 12:39:54 PM »
Came across this elixxier 3D studio software today, looks pretty good to me. Have anyone tried it?

I'm a noob around studio shooting, I did some assisting on a friend's photo studio though - setting things, pc's, wires and all. ;D

Pretty sure lots of pros don't need simulators like this but for starters I think there's some use.

Around 183$ -ish btw :P. Your thoughts, chime in.

They could pull it off with the Dual Digic 5plus.. that wouldn't be bad.  Dual Digic 6 may be a screamer though!  Looking forward to some Cr2 rumors!

They might use dual 5+ again this time, but I still have my hopes up for Digic 6.

A considerable delay on a model could mean they've put Digic 6 on it.

FWIW, I bet we're gonna be seing 2x 5+ on the 7dmk2, and digic 6 on the 70D. ;)

No 40mm pancake huh? Seems too close to either 35 or 50 anyway.

Just wait a bit til the pros chime in. And welcome to CanonRumors! :D

..And most of the refurb lenses are back again, albeit no small reductions - the green labeled savings.

Just yesterday almost all were greyed-out in the lenses section.

EOS Bodies / Re: Sell 60D now or after 70D is shipping?
« on: April 17, 2013, 06:31:45 AM »
I'd probably sell it "now" if I were you(that way Ms. Shuttercount still looks very pretty), ;)
Safe side would be to sell it after the 70D's official announcement is released.
So you'd know what you're gonna be upgrading to.

Lenses / Re: How good is 16-35 f/2.8 over 17-40 f/4?
« on: April 17, 2013, 12:53:52 AM »
A stop advantage, an mm of difference, but no carry-over for your thread-in filters.

I've read reviews/comparo bet. the 2 lenses, and mostly its about going to shoot wide-angle in concerts or clubs at night that the 16-35 edges the 17-40.

Here's another thread, it has the answers you seek OP. =)

Canon General / Re: Why do you do Photography?
« on: April 16, 2013, 06:22:21 AM »
Because I love it, getting paid or not.

Its like a thing when you were a kid that you kind of outgrew as you age yet the hidden joy is still there,
just waiting to be discovered again, just waiting for the trigger..... that results to a click of a shutter. No joke! LOL.

You guys described it way better than I can. ;D

Unless they did a body redesign, I assume the built-in flash is gone too?
