oh, wow! never expected to see this vid on CR. it was made by some people from the dutch tweakers.net community, they were inspired by "
Battle At F-Stop Ridge Small | Large
". i guess it's going global now :)

ouch, that's one very bad move he made there! but i do not think everyone on earth has to know what he has done. people do worse things wich no one ever talks about.

United States / Re: 70 - 200L IS MII vs 70 - 300L based on price

Thanks so much for the replies and info.

@ xROELOFx I currently have the EF-S 17-55 f/2.8

I am leaning to the 70-200. It is a little larger is size but better suited for my needs, Except travel. (can't have everything, where would you put it).  Being as I have two kids under 3, we are not traveling that much these days.

the 17-55 and 70-200 are a great combination. good IQ and both have the same aperture of 2.8, wich can be useful when switching lenses. you can just use the same settings with both of them.

like others have said in other topics, i guess it depends on what you're going to shoot. if its portraits only, the 70-200 is king. if you want to shoot wildlife too, i'd get a 100-400 instead of a 70-300. maybe a 70-200 + 1.4x extender could work too?
also what other lenses do you currently have? this could be useful information too.

anyways, i absolutely love my 70-200! it costs a lot of money, but it is really worth it.
if you have the money, i would definitely recommend it to everyone!

ps. the 70-200 is sold including a tripod colar.

Canon General / Re: Rechargeable Batteries for Flashes & Other Acc.????

if recycle time is an issue, i'd recommend to get a Godox PB820. it's an external battery that lasts forever, is quick to recharge, lightweight and is easy to connect to your flash.
you can just put any battery inside your flash (those will only be used to power the controls of the flash) when you've attached to Godox, it will be used to power the output of the flash. you can get really fast recylce times this way.

in my opinion: yes, it is way too much! like the others before me have said, there's lots of information to be found anywhere on the internet. also LR is not that hard to learn. good luck anyways!

Lenses / Re: Canon 1DX: The AF problem may be bigger that we think?
« on: November 07, 2011, 12:29:57 PM »
If I had a 1DX, and spent the pile of cash on it, I would not be buying ANY of those lenses. I would instead be nabbing up a 400 2.8, a 600 f4, a 200 f2, and maybe a 100-400 for fun! And when the fabled 200-400 would come out, I would buy two of them, just to be on the safe side!
haha, you forget hiring someone to carry all that heavy stuff for you ;)

Lenses / Re: What lenses are you missing in the line up
« on: November 07, 2011, 10:47:11 AM »
new lenses i'd like to see are a 24-70mm f/2.8L IS and a 35mm f/1.4L II.
and i really hope they announce the 200-400mm soon!

Lenses / Re: The price 300mm 2.8 IS--is just greed--maybe?

EOS Bodies / Re: The 1DX is announced -- What will October 26th bring?
« on: October 18, 2011, 02:38:24 PM »

damn ions! you keep posting beautiful pictures!
sory looks like to me sky is washed out.
what do you mean?

washed out = overexposed. So I believe he means the sky is overexposed which was caused by they sun :)

Thinks he means it because the sun ruins the picture a little bit.

ah, thanks for the explanation guys :).

i don't find it disturbing. it's not really that overexposed, as the sky is still blue at the left part of the photo (it's not plain white like you see in some other photos). anyways, i guess it's a matter of taste.
