I find when event shooting I tire out trying to continually see if the focus is locked on where I need it to be so I shoot one shot most of the time for focus confirmation. When people are moving towards or away I switch to AI Servo. I agree that AI Servo works well for static objects and many people leave it on.Custom modes. You can have a whole raft of settings saved, available to you in an instant. Personally I use C1 for portraits/landscape etc - one shot AF, central AF point, AV mode (defaulted to wide open) etc. C2 is for action - AI servo, all AF points, Tv 1/500th etc. C3 is for flash - M etc.
I still to this day wonder with the technology out there why Canon could not provide a dedicated button or an assignable one that when you press and release switches to the other shooting mode. Maybe an indicator in the viewfinder. Even if you can assign another button yo have to hold it which I find uncomfortable. I just usually use the Q screen. It is typically on the FEC setting as I'm always tuning the flash so it takes a few extra seconds and is still a bit of a pain.
Thanks for all the comments. Some really great advice here.+1
I think I'll go with just maybe 2 primes. Think it might end up being 24mm and 100l (because I love macro).
And pack my compact for days when life is more important than ultimate iq
The enlargement still applies when viewing at 100%.+1
I honestly cannot agree with the recommendation that the OP keeps the 24-70mm lens. He's a photography student. He still has to learn and define his version of the art. If he uses the 24-70mm, then IMHO, his photographs will look like everybody else's photographs and he won't develop a style of his own that's marketable in a very competitive business. (Over here in South Africa, every idiot with a "Rebel" and Sigma budget zoom considers herself a "pro" photographer ... heck, scratch "pro" ... considers herself a photographer.)
Sorry, my previous reply was to NWPhil.On the surface, those requirements read like the spec sheet of the G1X mk II.
At this stage, downpour-sealed, great IQ and small'ish size are, in that order, my main criteria. Is the G1X2 weather-sealed and if it is, to what extent?
anyone have a 1300? what can you fit in it? anyone have an opinion on foam vs padded dividers? guess i will be making some cardboard boxes and testing them out.Pick 'n pluck (foam):
Oh, just saw your signature with your gear list ... Personally, I'd sell the EOS 500D, the EF-S 10-22mm and the EF 24-70mm ...
