Mine is pretty simple as well.... M = Matthew, my first name; J= John, my middle name; and Behnke is my last name.

I don't have an avatar, as I look better when not in photos.

Canon General / Re: Why did you choose Canon?
« on: January 26, 2013, 07:28:32 PM »
I had a Pentax K1000 for a long time, as my father was big into photography and I was not allowed to use his Leica. Than my father-in-law passed away and he had a Canon AE1 programmable. Wow was that a nice camera. He had an 18-135 and a 50 1.4. When I went to the local store to check out new lens, they had just got in a new Rebel XT. I thought.... taking photos and not running out of film.... what a great concept. I tested the Nikon d70 that was there and it just didn't feel good in the hands. So, I stayed with Canon and bought the XT. I than joined the local Camera club and got to borrow L lens and that was what keeps me with Canon... quality lens.  And I think that's why Canon is upgrading it's lens, getting ready for another awesome camera that requires the quality glass!

I think Canon should continue with the Foveon type Sensor (http://www.canonrumors.com/2011/07/canon-3-layer-sensor-foveon-type-patent/) I think that would be a good place to start with new sensors, as I've used a sigma DSLR with the Foveon sensor and it's got a great DR. They could do a 16MP Crop (16mp would be bigger diodes than the current 18 for better light gathering) and achieve 48MP Crop. Just seems like a good way to go.

Just my 2 cents. But it would sure make a nice Pro series Crop. As far as a FF??

Didn't Canon patent some form of the Foven Sensor a while back??? I thought I saw a post awhile ago on here regarding that sensor??  Maybe a 15.3 x 3 layer Sensor???

Just my 2cents!

I own the Canon 60D and have the EFS 15-85 and the 70-200 F4 IS. These two lenses cover pretty much everything I do. I shoot Car Shows, lots of seniors, family. I think my next purchase will be the 300 F4L IS to start with Birds on the back deck that face the woods. But, anyway, I really like the outcome from these lenses and I think they are worth every penny. The only thing you need to remember is that if you ever decide to go Full Frame, you will not be able to use the EFS15-85 on it.

JMHO - Since there was no mention of any video features, maybe to keep costs down, this will be a Photo Only Camera??? Good for Landscape and Portrait type work, than it really won't see much video work.

Thoughts?

Have been doing alot of car shows and this guy really wanted an HDR Photo of this car for a poster. This is the results......

Comments are welcome, but he did like the results and puts it with his car during shows.

Thanks,
Matthew

Very nice Mat, imagine if the background was less busy. 
I mean if you're going to modify the picture in use of HDR,
go for it and find a clear background or location to make
the car or your next subject stand out.  Great shot, love
the dark silver hint on the blue, very delicious.

Peace! 8)

Ah, good idea. I never thought about it, but now that you say it, I've got another person wanting their Yellowish\orangish Mustang GT done the same why, I'll have to think of a better location and will post when I get it done for comments.   Thanks for the tip!

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 6D in October? [CR1]
« on: August 10, 2012, 10:28:27 AM »
These comments are ridiculous. It appears everyone wants/expect Canon to produce a camera that is equal to or better than the 5D Mark III but for half the price.

Couldn't care less about the number of autofocus points.
One that works with 100% accuracy, 100% of the time is fine by me.
6fps? Couldn't care less. 2fps and I'm happy.
Video? Huh? Well, whatever.
Weatherproof? If the camera is more weatherproof than I am then there's little point to it. Meaning I'm probably going to "call it a day" before the camera does, so care factor = 0.

All that I care about is the ability of the sensor to capture light and do so with the least amount of noise possible and with the highest accuracy possible. Oh and a top panel LCD :)

+100    If it focuses accurate and takes photos, I'm good. I don't shoot video, so they could cut that out all together and make a nice functioning photo camera.

Are these shots in HDR? Some of them look like they were? As noted above, I like the first B&W also.

Thanks

I was looking at the Sony Rx100, But I like the Aps-C. Should produce a great quality photo over the 1 inch sensor on the Sony, as I do blow my photos up for printing to Medium poster size prints for the work I do. Great to see Canon releasing the EF adaptor at the same time... They are smart doing that. If the price is right and the IQ is good, I'll get one as a cool little backup.... And I would have wanted Pink too! LOL
