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

I'll go first....:)

Last Nov I posted this:,18158.0.html

Today, I received an email from the same Coach offered me $1,100 CASH to shoot 3 games of Youth Soccer Leagues.

I spoke with him on the phone and he clearly wanted:

1. Me to be at the field for no more than 3hrs to cover each game -Total of 9hrs for 3 games.
2. He is fine with JPEG files, since he only wants action shots - boys running, kicking ball etcs...
3. He wants all photos to transfer to his PC right-after-each game and all photos must be delete from camera(s).

I told him, I'm not interested. But willing to deliver a message to CR.

Shoot me an email if you interested @   Edit: The gig has been taken by one of our CR member.

Software & Accessories / Rolling Case to fit all my camera gear
« on: December 01, 2013, 01:02:13 AM »
I'm currently using Lowepro Pro Roller x200 case( However, with my recent purchase Canon 300mm f2.8 IS II the x200 is no longer can support 300mm. My idea is to keep all cameras and lenses in one bag, so I can take with me to any events.

I'm now thinking the big daddy Think Tank Photo Logistics Manager 30 - Rolling Gear Case:

Think Tank Logistic Manager - A Packing Exercise

Wonder if you guys have any other suggestions?

Photos below are my current camera bodies & lenses.

I better enjoy my recent purchase Canon 300mm f2.8 IS II before my DSLR dies ;D

I'm not sure how they going to make 24-70 f2.8, 85mm f1.4, 135mm f2, 70-200 f2.8, 300mm f2.8 list goes on...small enough to go with mirrorless body.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Add battery grip to maintain 6fps on 5D III
« on: November 19, 2013, 10:32:00 AM »
I’m shooting with 5D III. When the battery is full, I have no problem getting 6fps. However, when the battery is at half or 1/3 drops, I don’t get that 6fps anymore.

Will extra battery in battery grip helps? Have anybody try this before?
