Canon General / When do you know you have enough camera gear?
« on: April 26, 2014, 05:52:41 PM »
I thought I have enough cameras and lenses to shoot most situation. Last week, I even talked myself out of buying the Canon 600mm f4 IS II. It should be a happy moment for not spending $10K on a single lens that doesn't get use often right?'s not that easy. I saw this photo, posted by Neuro:

I'm now heading to flash photography. I'm not sure what will come after flash?

Wish me luck guys ;)

Hi guys,
Have you ever try this B&W filter before? To have option from 1-5 exposure reduction is quite unique. I'm worry it might affect the IQ. I always have positive experience with BW, but haven't try this yet.

Hi guys
I would like to have your feedbacks on gimbal tripod head.

To support BIG WHITE, which Gimbal head you guys use? Any third party(low cost) out there?

At this time, I'm leaning to Wimberley + Wimberley - P10 Quick Release Plate:

For those interested:

Here is one review with Fuji camera:

19mm equivalent to FF, which I think is very nice focal lenght for landscape.

FF + same body style like: X100s, XT-1, or X-e2 = count me in. I LOVE the look, feel and all layouts from x100s. FF + UWA + 35 or 50mm...I'm good to go ::)

Lenses / Canon 24-70 II + 70-200 f2.8 IS II is one GREAT combo

Last Jan, I got a chance to be a primary photographer to shoot Tet celebration at Saint Columban Church. It’s a small private catholic school.

Long story short, the Vietnamese parents did an outstanding job organizing the Tet celebration. They got strong supports from school principle and all the teachers.

As always, I brought all the gear I have including the 400mm f2.8 IS II to the event. I took about 700ish photos.
1.   85% of the photos taken with 24-70 II + 70-200 f2.8 IS II combo
2.   15%  taken with 50L + 135L combo

Shooting with 2 bodies including 24-70 II + 70-200 f2.8 IS II combo is so much easy. Missing shots is almost impossible. I’m glad I pulled trigger on second 5D III.

Here is the link of Tet celebration:  These are just preparation photos. There are so much more photos that I wish I can share with CR community – kids getting red envelop, dragon dances etc…but I must respect the parents & students privacy.

Bottom line is: 24-70 II + 70-200 f2.8 IS II is one GREAT combo
