Pricewatch Deals / Re: BEWARE LEXAR FAIL!
« on: March 29, 2014, 10:50:10 AM »
I had 2 Lexar 1000X Professional CF cards literally die on me. One time after taking 500 irreplaceable
vacation photos and the second time after 2 hours of a paid shoot which I had to restart completely.
I went back to Sandisk Extreme Pro 1066X which hasn't failed me in 13 years.
Save yourself a headache and don't buy Lexar.

It's not an Anecdote. It's a fact. 2 cards from different batches failed. Also your beloved transcend also failed me.
You buy cheap, you get cheap.
And exactly how do you test a CF card thoroughly? There is no way.
The testing should be done at the factory. It's called quality control.  I use the card normally and I perform 3 formats before working and you never know when the card is going to fail. There is no warning.
None of the software I have was able to see the cards so there was no way to recover any data.
At one time I was using 2 simultaneous cards just in case but it slows the çamera down so finally sandisk came out with a 1066x and now I have no problem.

Animal Kingdom / Seagulls in Miami

Shooting a model on the beach… So, I took a few shots for fun…
All you need is a few pieces of bread and in seconds you have dozens of Seagulls fighting over it. They get so close, you can almost hand feed them :D

Pricewatch Deals / Preordered The powershot sx700 hs
« on: February 13, 2014, 10:17:45 AM »
 I already own the 280sx hs with a 20x optical zoom.
It's an amazing little camera with full manual controls.
I take it to music concerts and car races. I wouldn't be able to get the shots I get without the zoom.
And I can transfer the photos straight to my iPhone or
iPad.
Now at 30x... Whoa! Can't wait!

Lenses / Re: Canon 24-105 vs canon 24-70 ii
« on: December 24, 2013, 07:10:12 PM »
There is simply no better lens than the 24-70 II.
It matches most primes in quality and in one package.
It's the ONLY lens I own. Coupled to my 1DX, I have to say I am seeing the best output ever.
The 24-105 has a little more range but I rented one for a week and was very very disappointed. Too many missed focus photos and not the sharpest.
I also rented a 50mm 1.2L, a 135 2.0L, a 35mm 1.8 and nothing could replace my 24-70.
The only other lens I would consider is the 70-200 F2.8L II which I used and absolutely loved. But I have no need for it.
My only complain about the 24-70 2.8L II vs the old 24-70 is the minimum focusing distance. It was shorter before.

Lenses / Re: Review: Zeiss 50mm f/2.0 Makro-Planar T* ZE
« on: December 24, 2013, 07:04:12 PM »
Excuse my ignorance but what is the point of a 2.0 lens for low light situations when you can't have Auto Focus?
Unless you do strictly video, I don't get it…  :-\

Lenses / 24-105 2.8...
« on: December 20, 2013, 03:28:36 PM »
I want a 24-105 2.8L. I don't care for IS. Or if it is bigger and heavier...
I find my 24-70 II to be too short sometimes.
Maybe Sigma should do it. They did the world's first 1.8 zoom…
I think it's possible.

I just realised why this camera makes perfect sense for Canon:

Customer: "I bought this pretty white camera for Christmas with a lovely white lens. Now I need something longer, but it just has to be in white; do you have any available?"

Canon dealer "Step right this way!"

 ;D
Right on!

Wonder why you didn't show the back of the camera. Looks even worse. A total miss.

I personally love it. It would look great with a 70-200 attached to it.

The canon version is old technology.
I rented one for a week and had terrible results. Accurate Focusing was a big problem for me. Maybe a faulty lens, who knows. But enough to make me not even consider it.
I Own a 24-70 III which is Perfect, but I find it short sometimes. I am used to the range so going to a 70-200 is too much.
A 24-105 F2.8 would be amazing.  Maybe sigma
Will deliver someday.
For now, this one seems like a winner. The price is right and the lens actually rotates like a canon, not a Nikon, which was a problem for me in the past.
Sigma is doing their homework and they are impressing a lot of people.
Let's see how the reviews go...
