Lenses / Re: Looking for EF 24-105 f4L aftermarket replacement...
« on: June 12, 2012, 11:07:44 AM »
i am on the same boat, want a walk around lens, used to own the 28-135 IS, but can't afford the 24-105L.

and always hope either Tamron or Sigma will produce a 24-105/ 24-120 F4 for various mounts.

I am sure there is a market for this kind of lens, Nikon release their 24-120 F4 last year or so, but its heavier than the Canon, Sony and Pentax user can also benefit if either Tamron/Sigma make one.  aim it ~$600USD street price

the Sony Alpha DSLR focus really well in video mode, it is just the same as focusing in photo mode, becoz of their translucent mirrior, so they are able to use Phase Detection AF all the time.

the down side is, aperture has to be wide open, but if you want full control, you lose continuous AF, so not both....

The 5n is great, AF is quicker than the original NEX3 or 5, but still slower than EP3, GF3, and the EM-5. but IQ wise, i am very satisfied with it.  For travelling, you can get the 18-200, both Tamron and Sony made one.

if you want it for portrait, there is only 1 lens available if you want bokeh, the 50 F1.8, but it focus even slower than the kit lens, don't know why.....

wait for another month or so, Sonyalpharumors mentioned the NEX 5n successor will come soon, so the 5n price will go down

just wondering how are you capturing these drag race, as in where you stand.

were you somewhere in the middle up high and just pan, or standing close to the end zone? or even in car?

EOS Bodies - For Video / T4i continuous Video AF, CDAF or PDAF?
« on: June 05, 2012, 10:12:25 AM »
ok, i can't wait to see the announcement on friday; I need the continuous AF becoz i shoot toddler all the time, and i can't keep up with MF, my temporary solution is my Sony 5n.

i always want a VDSLR that can do continuous AF in Video mode, but if the T4i video AF performance is same as the Nikon D7000, with sluggish video CDAF, then i don't see why it took Canon that long to bring that kind of AF into DSLR.  unless the CDAF they use is the same speed as Olympus EM-5 and Panasonic GX1? that would be interesting!

i hope the T4i or the upcoming 70D would have same performance as the Sony Alpha DSLR thou..... just without the limitation.

Lighting / Re: Which Phottix RF trigger?
« on: June 05, 2012, 10:04:15 AM »
thanks for your reply.....

if they can't do ETTL in M mode, then it has no use for me.... i just dont want to set my speedlight power myself.

i believe #23 means no TTL pass through? same as the phottix?

thanks for pointing that out....

thats why i originally find the word "TTL pass through" not clear....

so Odin is my cheapest TTL wireless trigger in the market? wow...

wait, somebody mentioned the Pixel King, is that a true TTL trigger or just letting TTL speedlight mount on top to be TTL-able ?
Pixel King is ~$150 from ebay for the pair

just want to clarify, the Phottix Strato II is a TTL trigger, correct?

i realize their website mentioned TTL pass though hot-shoe, but thats something different. i just want to try wirelessly TTL since my RF602 die.

EOS Bodies / Re: Mirrorless Vs Regular DSLR -- Your thoughts???
« on: May 17, 2012, 03:50:53 PM »
it was for faster AF, but now the Olympus and Panasonic do have "faster" AF speed than majority of the DSLR.

i see that mirrorless is eating up the lower entry level DSLR, ie, 1000D/600D or even the 60D, but not the 7D yet.

and seeing FF from Nikon and Canon rumor being priced below $2000, i would say the future would be mirrorless for pocketability, entry level, non-professional use, then you look into DSLR for speed, specific fucntion and FF

^ I am sure Canon is not going the same route with the D5100 continuous AF. if thats the case, they can do that in the T2i.

hopefully so sort of hybrid of CD/PDAF?

if they can do that, it will prove Sony translucent mirror tech all wrong.... we shell see......

EOS Bodies / Re: A cheaper FF body - anytime soon?
« on: May 14, 2012, 11:02:38 AM »
i actually see Nikon & Canon pushing FF to the lower price point as mirrorless like M43 and Sony NEX or even Samsung NX are eating up the APSC DSLR market. selling entry level DSLR (APSC) is a lot harder than before now.

Nikon need the D600 as the D700 doesn't do video and the mp count is low from a marketing stand point, Canon can just keep the 5D2 selling well, even thou the AF is dated. no point of making a entry level FF from Canon to abundant the 5d2

judging from your gear list, i would strongly suggest having a back up body.

either rent or buy another 60D (since you are familiar with it, and battery can be share).

if you rent, you can mount your 50-150 on one, 17-55 on the other.

if you buy, you can just use if for a back up, if you end up didn't touch it, you can refund it.

a used 5D1 is less than the 60D and a lot less than the 7D.

if you don't need video at all, and don't need an amazing AF, the 5D1 would do.


All L lenses, such as the 24-105 in the "Kit" comes with a carrying case/pouch... This one is a grayish cloth pouch with a hard leather bottom and drawstring closure.  Should be in there if you ordered the kit.

and a white box too right? thinking of purchasing one, has been always wondering where white box coming from, i guess now i know
