Canon General / Re: What is your Least Used Piece of Gear?
« on: Today at 04:04:02 PM »
Okay, one more -

What is your least used piece of gear, or pieces of gear?

Mine: my 430EX and 580EXIII Speedlites.  I love natural light and use my Lastolite reflectors/diffusers or Einsteins most of the time I need to add or modify light.
+1 on the 580EXII. I use it only with he 24-105 and indoor events. But, these days my combination indoor is 24-70 & 70-200 & 50A

candyman's last image looks kind of similar, but I'm not sure it's too much sharpening. The "&" symbol has a weird glow to it. Maybe it's how the exposure was adjusted to make the scene look natural with the wide dynamic range, or maybe it's HDR?


Very good spotted: HDR
I may have done a bit too much adjustment but wanted to show a bit of the interior. This shop has an enormous amount of things, little things....

I hope they bring back the f/1.0 - just sharper!

+1...without focus shift. Sharp from wide open to f2.8

Sharp ... you mean like how the Sigma 50/1.4 Art is sharp? Or sharp as in how the 50/1.2L is sharp?


Nice try Dilbert, we already had this one. Unless you expect a slow weekend  ;)

Awesome. Great first post...And welcome to CR  :)


Keep posting!

Thanks!  Looking forward to participating more.  Can't wait to see what, if anything, becomes of the rumored 7D mk II...would love to update my 7D to another 1.6 crop sensor body but with better image quality and lower noise at high ISOs.


P.S. how do I change the SX50 that appears under my screen name?  Don't know how that got there.

Saw this beauty parked next to my car in our staff car park - had to get a shot.

It was really dark and was worried someone might run me over as i was almost horizontal on the tarmac.

85mm, 1/160, f1.2, ISO2000.

Cool shot and car, but the license plate is hilarious - intentionally or not, I'm not sure, but in the U.S. My Little Pony was a animated TV show for little girls:


Ha,ha,ha...so the owner could be female - it does not always have to be the boy with his toy  ;D

Found this fellow on a hike in CO.

That is amazing!
.......
...mo' of the same.

Really cool to catch that moment.

I've been hanging out with less furry acquaintances and on Sunday had an opportunity to get some closeups.   




That's a wonderful shot.
What focal length did you use? And, is this snake dangerous? (we don't have snakes over here so no knowledge about that)
