EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Problem: slow AF 6D
« on: December 26, 2012, 12:23:13 AM »
Canon or Nikon? 6D or D600?  Honestly, who cares?  What matters is your experience with the product.  If you're happy with something then good for you.  I have a 6D and love it.  Am I missing something by not having a D600?  Perhaps.  I don't care.  All I know is I have a  6D that performs better than what I expected and having a great time using it so far.  Having little experience or knowledge of a product does not make it inferior.

This is one of the Bald Eagles living near the Llano River in Texas.  I took this yesterday on a gray day.



Love it  :)

I think I'll go out and invest in... a bag of potato chips.... Wonder what they will be worth in 2023?

I dunno...have you seen the price of Twinkies lately?!?   :P

Yeah, but twinkies are the best bet, as they ever expire.

Hold onto those twinkies and other Hostess products.  Could be worth big bucks if the company goes bankrupt.  :)  You will have a collectors item one day.

Canon can, will and continue to screw us.

Awww, you poor thing.

Not complaining.  Just stating the truth.  I enjoy being screwed by big companies.  Don't you?

How exactly is Canon screwing you over?

By over pricing their products.  I am aware that I am being charged too much. But I don't care.  I will continue to buy Canon.

As a Canon user you must know you are paying quite a bit for their product.  You may not care, but it is true.

The Crane is beautiful Ren... Wish we had some of those down here in Florida!
There are quite a few at the Animal Kingdom park at Disney World and the Animal Kingdom Lodge savannas.  They are beautiful.

Thanks.  I prefer to photograph wildlife in their natural environment.  Sometimes that's not possible so the zoo or any other place works fine for me.

And i'll be pissed when the 6D drops to $1600 by summer.  Oh well.  That's why I don't bother looking at the price again of a product once I purchase it.  Too depressing.

Then why not buy it only by summer?  You've still got the very good Ti1.  :)

I am one of those people who has to be one of the first to buy a new product.  My rebel still works well.  I just wanted to upgrade and introduce myself to the world of full frame.  No regrets.  I could never have waited until summer.  Just a sickness I have.  ;D

I was going to say the same.  Pull out he battery.  Maybe if you leave it out over night?  Or maybe reset the camera?

Lenses / Re: Patent: Supertelephoto DO Lenses With Macro Features
« on: December 22, 2012, 12:14:18 AM »
The words Canon Supertelephoto DO lenses in the same sentence does not equal cheap.  Throw in Macro feature and you have a recipe for high prices.  Definitely over $7000.

Why can't Canon make an affordable supertelephoto lens?  I am sure they could get more people buying their products if they did this.  It's fine to make the expensive one for people with deep pockets and for those who demand the best. But what about the rest of us?
