Pricewatch Deals / Re: Canon EOS-1D X Body $5649 via ebay

I'm not in the market for a 1dx... but it is intriguing because it isn't that much more expensive than my 5d mkiii.  Well when I sell my mkiii.

One advice.....try NOT to hold 1D X + 24-70 II. This thing is one AWESOME machine ;)

I'll start building my Sony/Zeiss FE lenses kit. The future of compact FF mirrorless + high speed AF + tracking feature is within reach. I'll be the 1st one on pre-order list when Sony is ready ;)

Sony released this interesting bluetooth mic ... I think it also works with the a7/a7R
According to http://store.sony.com/microphone-transmitter--zid27-ECMW1M/cat-27-catid-All-Camcorders-Accessories;pgid=YaVekzJizz1SRpzpWbJT83BP00000kmVtP9f?_t=pfm%3Dsearch%26SearchTerm%3DECM-W1M
... this is what it can do:
"Special moments right at the source with this Bluetooth® wireless microphone. Not only can you record crisp, clear sound up to 300 feet away, but you can also enjoy two way communications between you and your subject. This unique feature enables you to give your subject direction while capturing only their voice, or you can chose to capture both their voice and yours while filming".

Holy sh!t, a croc in the middle of road ... I wouldn't wanna be jogging alone in that area  :o ... nice image.
Thanks and people jog and bike along this road all of the time.  The EXIF says I was 6.7M from him, but it felt much closer!  I first spotted him in the grass where he was well-camouflaged.  Here's that shot and the another of the start of his crossing:
Nice!
I prefer to shoot with my 400mm ;D
Like this one (400 /f5.6)?  Sadly I didn't learn my lesson - this is him/her hissing when I got too close (around 15'), and unlike the big guy, this was a fast and dangerous 6-footer, so this was really stupid on my part.  I would love to have had your f/2.8, and needless to say I backed way up after the hiss...


Nice shot mackguyver ;)

Maybe 400mm + 1.4X TC now...don't want my gear endup inside his/her tummy ;D

24-70 II + 70-200 f2.8 IS II = must have lenses for Canon shooters

I would ignore what others say about 6D has better high ISO & no need fast lens.

Dylan777,
Those are superb combination.
For a large differences of shooting styles.  From portraits to landscapes to animals ( not too far ), from bright to low light, high f/stop to low f/stop.  Really is a great setup for us who like zoom lenses.
This combination is what I have been using for years, (sure, it was only 24-70 vI before November of 2013).
You do have two bodies negating the need for switching lens.  Bravo for you.
Your photos you share is great, too.  Hope you had a great New Year/Tet.

Thanks lion rock

Working towards that trio - I've got the first piece, the 70-200 IS II and I love it.

:)
Hope that day will come soon ;)

Hmmm, 85% + 15% = 100%. This means that the  400mm f2.8 IS II was left unused...

Someone was greedy  ;D ... lens greedy  ;D  ;D

Any similarity in the way of thinking with the person writing this very post is totally coincidental...  ;D  ;D  ;D
Could not help it ;D

Lenses / Canon 24-70 II + 70-200 f2.8 IS II is one GREAT combo
« on: February 20, 2014, 10:38:46 AM »
Last Jan, I got a chance to be a primary photographer to shoot Tet celebration http://www.tetvietnamsj.com/ 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: http://albums.phanfare.com/isolated/qT0bsDqk/1/6425720#imageID=208599092  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

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sony A7/R "Bundle Deal" up to $650 Off
« on: February 19, 2014, 12:11:45 AM »
Here is another good deal for Sony a7/a7R (As posted in sonyalpharumors):

"You can trade in any camera (in any conditions) and get a $300 credit valid for the purchase of a Sony A7 and A7r at Focuscamera (Click here). This is the second great A7-A7r deal of the week after the Up to $650 off savings on A7-A7r, lens and flash packages at Amazon US (Click here), BHphoto (Click here), Adorama (Click here) and SonyStore US (Click here)".

http://www.sonyalpharumors.com/focuscamera-gives-you-300-if-you-trade-in-your-old-camera-for-the-sony-a7-a7r/

I called Focus Camera, and the $300 credit is good for any camera, even a broken point-and-shoot, which is stackable on top of the Sony $650 rebate, leading to total of $950 off the package

Needless to say, I broke down and ordered the package of A7R, Zeiss 55 f/1.8, and Sony HVL60M flash.  :o  The flash has known overheating issues, but I figure I could use it for non-continuous shooting or send it to Sony service and see what they will do for me. 

BTW, Focuscamera website does not list the package of A7R/55mm/HVL60M under the $300 trade-in deal, just one with the 35mm lens.  However, I found their ebay listing for the package I prefer, and they honored the $300 deal when I called them. 
http://www.ebay.com/itm/291079850904?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

Great savings there.

I highly recommend this: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=Sony+-+Semi-Hard+LCD+Screen+Protector+for+a7+or+a7R+Digital+Camera&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ma&Top+Nav-Search=

I have this on my A7R + RX1 - LOVE IT
