just got mine!

First one in Shanghai and probably china :P

awesome and evening is approaching!

Fire up a sample thread, I'll join in tomorrow. Congrats on your new lens!

CONGRATS,
It looks like x-mas came early for you guys ;)

Couple things when you guys test this ARTY: AF consistency, focus shift, sharpness, bokeh, color, contrast.... ;D ;D ;D Ok...I'm asking too much :-X

Can't wait to see more photos

I have been doing quite a bit of homeworks on studio light Vs Speedlites. After getting ton of WONDERFULL advices & feedbacks from CR members, I decided to go with Speedlites.

I recently got this package for $1650:
1. Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT, QTY: 3
2. Canon ST-E3-RT Transmitter, QTY:1
3. Some Westcott umbrellas & softboxes

I also bought this Westscott combo: Triple Threat Real Deal Review

some sample shots







damn flickr changing everything on its UI...

I don't know about you guys, but those two photos look good to me ;)

Have you try shooting at smaller apertures? Any focus shift?

Thanks

I said before, I'm going to say it again: 24-70 II and 70-200 f2.8 IS II are the BEST zoom lenses in Canon current line-up.

I find it weird that there is only 1 shop in Norway that have the lens in stock. When I preordered they said they will begin shipping next month.. Maybe this afternoon I will receive the lens, if the norwegian postal doesn't screw up with its delivery. They're notoriously known for their long delivery times.

Ordered from FotoVideo on Saturday and still haven't received tracking number and confirmation that it has been sent yet, so combine that with the slowness of "Posten" and we're looking at Friday instead of Tuesday.
Got mine from Japanphoto (Norwegian mail order) today :) No time to try it before the weekend though.

Let us know how you like it Eldar ;)

I agree with many posters. Go for another 6D. Shooting an even with 2 bodies make the job much easier.

Canon General / Re: When do you know you have enough camera gear?
« on: April 27, 2014, 02:34:40 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?

Well....it's not that easy. I saw this photo, posted by Neuro: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=9791.120

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

Wish me luck guys ;)

Quick update guys, just closed the deal on these items:

1. Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT, QTY: 3
2. Canon ST-E3-RT Transmitter, QTY:1

All brand new, US model, receipt included for Canon 1yr warranty, from authorized dealer. $1650 out the door.

Next steps: umbrellas, soft boxes, and stands......

835
The 24-70 2.8 II and the 70-200 2.8 II are my most used lenses.  Can't say enough about them.  A 14-24 2.8L would nicely fill in that bottom end though.   ;)

+1...except. 16-35 III f2.8 IS with regular screw on filter ;)

Wouldn't know - it has never happened to me :(

BTW, welcome to flash photography - I have five studio strobes (and a 580 II inc external battery pack) with  umbrellas, snoots, gels, softboxes of various sizes and shapes/grids, beauty dish and reflectors/diffusers - and one assistant.

Next, I thinks I need a more powerful strobe with external power pack for location shoots.

Happy shooting.

Thanks Menace ;)

When you find gear at the bottom of your bag that you never knew you had......

The only lens in my bag doesn't get use much is 16-35 II, otherwise, I use most of my lenses every weekends.

Still missing macro, super telephoto, and underwater stuff....but those, I don't use it much or at all ;)

BUT, Our love Hobby Photography are a lot better than Play Golf, like my dear friend , he just spend money to buy the Hand made driver, that the PRO make perfect fit to his hand, and his body weight, His Height, and cost him 3-4,000 US Dollars ( Gold Plate Shaft that make  no rust and will make perfect hit in every times)---But He still can not play a good games after he get that Sh-T.---Ha, Ha, Ha, Now He tell me that he will buy the special golf balls that  can cheat the wind, and fly super straight as far as 1 miles.

But, We just have FUN the thing that we buy yesterday---No matter WHAT
.
Have a great weekend, Sir.

 :D

LOL..... ;D

Back in 2001 before I got married, I golf 3-4 a week at least. Yes, I admitted, I was addicted to golf. During that time, I upgraded my driver, fairway woods, irons yearly. The only club in my golf bag didn't get upgrade is Scotty Cameron, Studio Design, Newport2 putter. I LOVE THIS PUTTER. I still have this putter with me today.

Just like your  "dear friend", all my golf shafts & club heads were customized. It helps to fit with my nature golf swing, loft & angle, club-head-speed, length etc... 

I'm now married with 2 kids, I have reduced my golf from 3-4 times a week to 2-3 times a year - I'm still shoot in the low 80 on 72par courses ;)

I agree with you, life is too short. We only live one - let's enjoy life through photography, golf, bottle of red wine, Costo steak & lobster tail...the list goes on.

Oops....almost forgot, let enjoy the BIG L WHITE too ;D

Have a great weekend surapon

Have.

Enough.

Camera.

Gear.

I understand each of those words independently, but when you put them together, in that order, it just sounds like nonsense. 

 ;D

LOL... ;D
