Worst Photography Video Ever, this guy has no idea his strategy is based on the theory that humans are logical, HUMANS are not logical, that's why there are addicts and lenses are an addiction that's why we buy them, not that we need them, because there available, manufactures know this, that's whey they make so many ;)

Hi nda.
I don't own one, so this is purely an observation from your pic with a big white connected, can you still get your fingers round the grip, between the grip and the lens? Doesn't look like there is room, but I know it could just be the angle. I have large hands so if there is no gap it would not work for me.

Cheers Graham.

I have medium hands and there is still room, so I don't think it will be an issue.

I've been playing about with my daughter's 1100D recently, using it in RAW for the first time, because I'm going to get a small body for when I don't want to lug the larger stuff around. I was considering the M, but now think I am almost certainly going to get a 100D instead because I really like the tiny dSLR form.

However for myself the size of the camera body must match the lens, so I would never buy something so small to use a 70-200 on a regular basis.

I agree, I would never use the 70-200/2.8 it looks and feels ridiculous, however the 70-300L now that's different ball game, I've taken this combo as it appears in the pic to many outdoor events and it is now my fav combo ;)

Hello All, I recently purchased a 100D/SL1, I'm just after an opinion on people who have used this camera?
Do you like it?
Do you hate it?
Worst and best parts, etc?

I personally love it, very small but you get used to it handles just like a slr, love the crop factor on a small form body and it's got a fantastic shutter sound :)

Canon General / Re: only canon, nikon and sony will survive?
« on: January 02, 2014, 04:56:33 AM »

But I think most camera companies will survive.  I also think the future looks particularly bright for the first company that can produce an APS-C mirrorless camera, that has DSLR-like performance, small size and well laid out controls.  Yesterday, in 35+ degree heat (>95F) and almost 100% humidity, I was sporting my little Fuji X-E1 at a local tourist attraction.  I was getting a LOT of envious looks from sweaty, overburdened DSLR users.

X-E2, and the X-Pro1 replacement whatever it's called(X-Pro1s, X-Pro2, etc)
