Not sure about the best but he is pretty bloody good at what he does IMOV8Dude
Your best skill seems to be name calling in laughable manner.
You are kind of a funny guy.
Believe it or not you are not the only person who has ever used a camera. I've shot the men's NCAA basketball tourney (and no, not from the stands ) among other things.
And believe it or not I'm not the only person who thinks more dynamic range would be nice to have at times. And believe it or not, some of them are actually full-time pros.
And it's a bit hard to use reflectors to fill in the interior of a redwood forest, maybe for some scenes, if you spend 15 hours rigging and thousands in expenses for a single shot, perhaps, sometimes, but then try it for a landscape expanding over a a few hundreds acres and it's a bit trickier still and then try that for every single possible such situation you may come across anywhere and.... and yes, sometimes a tripod a multi-snaps will do and sometimes a grad ND filter will do it, but not always. especially if you want details and not a wax-look.
It's not the end of the world, but it's ridiculous to say it's pixel-peeping geek nonsense whenever it is something Canon is not best at, and absolutely critical when it's something Canon is best at.
Could you show us some work photographed by you ?
I have read most of your post and like I said before your really must be the best photographer in the world.
Just wondering if all your numbers knowledge can be found back in your pictures.
I have purchased the new 5d mk iii. which arrived today and have been testing it performance, especially the manual mode as thats what I shoot with the most. I hoped there would be an auto ISO setting for manual, which there is BUTyep there was a big hooo haa about this the last couple of days i'll find the thread unless it got deleted because people got a bit excited
why cannot I set an exposure compensation while in Manual mode with auto ISO?
I always use manual mode to control shutter and aperture. I meter my exposures from my client's faces that are usually set at +1EV to accommodate light skin. Auto ISO would allow me to keep up with rapidly moving children as ISO speed is not so critical as shutter and aperture setting for me. I appreciate the new advantage of auto ISO that the mark ii did not have, but now my exposures will be a full stop under-exposed using the advantages of auto ISO with the mark iii
i got a couple of these a few months ago they have been pretty good
they were half the price when I got them though
wish i had bought more now..
I'm in north america and I don't think I've ever seen duracell cards - duracell batteries sure. It's funny how things are the same yet different.
^ How old is your lens and do you use it with a filter? Im afraid that if i buy this lens, it will break after a few months
That 85L will be painfully slow when trying to capture an event like a quinceanera, I cover parties / weddings and eventually only use my 85L for staged shots... 35L will be perfect for low light with super quick AF and an EFOV of 56mm on your 60D. Kind of a classic photojournalism lens on a crop.
good to know!
Thanks for your response.yep, I did this to a cheap plastic ebay one to stop vignetting on my 16-35 on FF it fixed the problem
I'd thought about trying to reduce the size of the filter holder.
Looks like its out with the hacksaw this weekend!
owned one for four months now have nothing bad to say about the lens itself. it's just great.
the price for lack of a tripod ring is a little steep but given what's happening with all new Canon lenses it's not out of step.
the zoom ring and manual focus ring are in different positions than a lot of lenses but after using it enough where zooming is instinctive i like the position better because the camera is more balanced in my hands.
no Canon extenders but is compatible with the Kenko. i guess results vary because i have the $130 Kenko 1.4x extender on it and even though it's reporting f/8.0 to my 60D it still autofocuses.
