Beanbag.

A Gorillapod may well not be up to the job, depending on the body and lens in use (which it would help to know, of course).
i've used a gorillapod with 1D and 24-105 quite a bit
works well for ground shots
I wouldn't hang that combo on apole sideways though even though its the heavy duty version

Anyone ever seen the videos on youtube where he wonders around B&H like a buffoon, claims that good sports photographers should not need super teles, delcares a EVIL camera has too many buttons and all other sorts of nonsense??

The guy's even more annoying in person. I didn't know that was possible.

I made it 2 mins into that vid and couldn't take it anymore

Another reason to slow down and make every shot great.
too true, in the end getting it right in camera is the fastest way to shoot. its so easy to overshoot with digital

insert obligatory must be user error post here :P

I took mine back yesterday, just waiting for a replacement to come in now :(

Same exact problem I take it, ya Wombat?

Nah mine had all sorts of wierd AF issues, it just wasn't working properly, getting 00 errors on top etc
I think its likely there will be a few faulty units come out but generally it looks like the bulk seem to be going well
you looked like yours was going fine until this popped up out of no where. I love the camera just want one that works like my other cameras

For you folks who are shooting 35mm film, if you haven't..... you should really be getting into medium format! It's too awesome! 35mm feels too small, Shoot some 6x7 format stuff, oh my god. Amazing.

Here are a few favs from last year, the one black and white in the studio (head shot) is PanF+ ISO 50 film, and the other black and white (is actually a behind the scenes shot) is Tri-X 400.

The color ones are Fuji Pro 160s (Bench shot) and Kodak Portra VC 400 (roof top).

i nearly bought a mamiya a few weeks ago but it went for more than i wanted to pay in ebay :(




www.keh.com is the place to be!!! fair prices and pretty accurate gear assessments/ratings.

I have a 645 and a 6x7, I love both. Next up is a C330f (a 6x6 Mamiya, twin lens reflex camera).

do you do your own developing? In don't really have anywhere to setup a dark room, in the process of building a studio at home though and the labs charge sooo much to develop film

this works well too


Does it send the info by IR so the photos are tagged in real time?  Do you know of any iPhone apps that could do this?

Does anyone know if you can connect your iPhone over bluetooth if you plug in a USB-bluetooth adapter into the WFT-4a?

no you set the phone and camera time to the same it makes a log file which you use later to generate the geotagging in post

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D mk III HDR samples.
« on: April 05, 2012, 06:09:27 AM »
HDR is often overused or used in situations where a single exposure is more than enough to cover the DR in the scene. 
most factual statement made by anyone this week ;)

EOS Bodies / Re: is the 40D still a good one for 400$
« on: April 05, 2012, 04:54:06 AM »
i would suggest spend a little more and go for a 5D classic over a 40D they must be down to around $700 ish now

It's because I'm a bogan.  And I briefly lived in Logan, Queensland (the bogan capital of Australia).  I was a proud "Logan Bogan".

I cant imagine a 300-800 Sigma as a walkabout :D

I lost interest when he said out of camera jpg comparison i'm afraid.
pretty meaningless IMO especially when you see how much over the top NR is applied in camera
