Lenses / Re: Canon Price Drops on L Lenses
« on: September 01, 2014, 07:48:31 PM »
The price drops are not about competition they speak volumes about the fall in new camera purchases these normally spark lens purchases even if some of these lenses are specialist.
I find that very hard to believe.  I think that Canon has to be taking a big hit on lens sales because Tamron and Sigma are now making as good or better lenses than Canon at significantly lower prices.

I still mostly stick with DVDs, though I often just upload a zip file to my own website and let people download from there.  If you have decent web hosting, it's free and in many ways easier than dropbox.  In some states (NY being one), if you only provide clients digital files transferred online, they don't owe any sales tax since there is no physical product.

At the Reno Air Races 2013

Yowza.  Great shot.  Better day to have the planes on the ground than in the air, I think.

PowerShot / Re: Canon EOS Smart 1 Phone - April Fools Joke? :)
« on: March 31, 2014, 04:14:45 PM »
Speaking of April Fools, I don't think this is a joke:

http://nikoneyes.com

I saw this on TV yesterday. I mean, seriously? People buy these things?

Care to share with the rest of us what the joke is?  What is so hard to believe about Nikon selling polycarb and other materials for lenses for eye glasses?  Pentax also makes lens material for eyeglasses along with Ziess.
I agree.  Doesn't seem so odd.   And if Canon could put out some EOS glasses with interchangeable lenses, I'd consider buying them.

PowerShot / Re: Canon EOS Smart 1 Phone - April Fools Joke? :)

Yeah, as per Facebook talk there, it looks like a Tag Heuer Race mobile phone. An awful design also, that I doubt Tag had anything to do with! http://www.goldsmiths.co.uk/TAG-Heuer-Racer-Sport-MP-Classic-Red-Mobile-Phone/p/39830054/


Ech, that Tag phone should be the april's fool's day joke.  Couldn't look worse and it's price tag: £2,650.00

Canon General / Re: Off Brand: Nikon Announces the D4S
« on: February 25, 2014, 10:51:59 AM »
I thought you were doing A Bat's Eye View series
That's what caught my eye, too, and as someone who uses ISO 102400 on my 5DIII all the time, I might have to sell all of my Canon gear to get the D4S.  I think it will really help with my upcoming series - Coal Mines by Matchlight.  If I accidentally run into some methane, this might be my last post ;)

Both of these posts made my day, and it's not even noon yet. going to be a good day...

I agree ... who knew someone could actually be funny in a forum post?!  (Particularly in another Canon vs. Nikon thread.) 

Thanks!  ;D

Canon General / Re: Why Scott Kelby Switched to Canon
« on: January 20, 2014, 03:11:38 PM »
If you listen to and pay attention to Kelby, it's clear that he's a business man first, a Photoshop guy 2nd, and shooting is a distant third at best.  Like many others in this forum, I find it very unlikely that the shooter made the decision; it surely was the business man.

Deal seems to be gone.  Oh well.  I wonder if it wasn't a mistake: they accidentally doubled up the $300 rebate perhaps?

Lighting / Re: Bolt VX-760C Wireless TTL Flash
« on: May 06, 2013, 11:43:30 AM »
Thanks, looks like you're right about it being the same as the Oloong and Calumet flashes.   Both look fairly well reviewed but they're missing high speed sync, which might be a deal breaker for me.

Lighting / Bolt VX-760C Wireless TTL Flash
« on: May 03, 2013, 08:21:55 PM »
Has anyone out there used the Bolt flashes, particularly the VX-760?  They appear to be exclusively sold by B&H, and there are no reviews on their site.  The price is right and the specs looks very good (E-TTL, guide number close to the 600ex and can be used wirelessly as master/slave), but I'd love to know how it works in the field.

EOS Bodies / Re: Question regarding ISO 50 on 5D III
« on: April 02, 2013, 10:17:14 AM »
Thanks for the reminder...I basically forgot the 5DIII had ISO 50 because the ISO 50 on my previous camera (5D) looked awful and I never used it.  Got to go take some test shots now.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 7D L Announced, Shipping in May
« on: April 01, 2013, 12:33:57 PM »
I'm ambidextrous, so I want a dual-gripped reversible "7D A" (actually, I want a 5dmiiiA).  That way when one hand gets tired, I can switch.  It'll be worth the extra money, since with my new found endurance, I'll be twice as good a photographer and cinematographer.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: New Online Camera/Lens Information Tool
« on: March 26, 2013, 01:21:15 PM »
That is a cool tool.  Thanks for sharing.  Hopefully they'll have more lenses tested soon (some of the 3rd party ones are the ones that I'm most concerned about and would love more information regarding).

An the advantage of pinch caps is....????   I've got one with my Tamron lens, and I don't much care for it.

Reviews / Re: 5D3 Nightshot at ISO 102400
« on: February 23, 2013, 08:13:21 PM »
With all the obsession over self-imposed ISO limits for "clean images," (myself included) this is actually very refreshing.
It's all about using the right tool/setting for the job.  A grainy/noisy B&W sky can look fine.  But sometimes you probably should go for a "clean image".  After all, a noisy color shot of a person's face usually just looks like a mess.
