Canon General / Got paid $350 for doing what I LOVE - photography
« on: November 17, 2013, 10:39:51 PM »
My rental 300mm f2.8 IS II arrived yesterday.

I went to local high shool this morning to test out the lens - photograph "little soccer league". I took over 500 photos. The coach asked to see the photos and I showed him my pictures. He offered to pay for all 500 photos for $350(about 1hr of fun for me). I took the offer and gave him all JPEGs. I promised to edit some raws and will give him some later.

Should I change my carreer ::)

I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE I GOT !!!PAID!!! FOR THAT. I guess, I'm a "PRO" now ;D ;D ;D

By Sony: “the pre-ordered quantities are almost 200% bigger than expected"

Ok...let see more prime lenses please :o

« on: October 16, 2013, 06:36:15 PM »
I'm curious, did any Canon shooter place pre-order on Sony A7/A7R? or will buy it in near future?

I did and I feel like a "lonely wolf" here... ::)

WOW....This is the moment I been waiting for ::) ::) ::)

If the body is same or slightly bigger than RX1, I'M ALL IN.

My wish list:
1. A7 or A7R?
2. 55mm f1.8
3. 14,16 or 17mm
4. 85mm

Will sell some of my Canon gear to get the list above ??? :( ::) :) ;D ;D


Edit: I want one NOW :o

Edit: Final answer is A7 + Zeiss 50mm f1.8

After 2 weeks playing with X100s, I’m still in love with retro/classic/vintage body style. Hope Canon will have something like this soon.

What is your favorite gear?

Found this on my desk this morning :o :o ;D ;D ;D ;D It's my 7th anniversary gift from the wife.

Can you guess what this is? Hint: 1st letter is "X" and last is "S"

I'm heading out...will post some pics later   

I brought my wife to local camera store last week. She wanted a "pink" camera bag for the RX1. While I was there, I got a chance to play with x100s.

I'm NOW having a high fever for it ::) ::) ::)

I took this picture with Sony RX100II, in low light. This is 3200ISO, JPEG straight out from camera, zero PP.

RX1 & RX 100 II always amazed me...body size and IQ.

Lenses / Used: Canon 400mm f2.8 IS USM - your thoughts
« on: September 13, 2013, 12:37:55 AM »
I plan to check out this lens tomorrow afternoon. What should I look for in used Telephoto lens?. Most importantly, what is the right price?

Thanks guys,

EOS-M / Mount EF, EF-S or L lens on EOS-M --- Your thought???
« on: August 24, 2013, 10:37:53 PM »
Most of us, including myself, got great deal on EOS-M + 22mm for $299 through BH.

I bought it for one reason - $299 deal. I simply used the M as P&S camera. EOS-M is an average compact camera that we can carry around.

Recently, I start seeing many posts showing M mounted with EF, EF-S and even L. It’s nice that Canon came up with adapters for those lenses. 

Here is my 2cents: I think Canon should make more pancakes or something smaller for current M & M2. I just don’t see myself buying an adapter for EF, EF-S or even L lens so that I can mount it on tiny body.

Your thoughts?
