Third Party Manufacturers / kenko mc4 1.4 vs kenko pro 1.4 vs sigma 1.4
« on: October 06, 2013, 05:54:55 PM »
Hey everyone!
I am wondering if any of you have tried both of these teleconverters and sees noticeable difference in image quality ,  faster autofocus etc. Because I already have the mc4 and wonder if I should upgrade to the pro one ( I am (would be) using it with sigma 120-300 os on a 6d for sports) or if the sigma one is better than these 2 and should buy this one instead. I wouldn't really use it for nighttime sports since f4 is pretty slow and would even need to stop lower to get better IQ..
Thank you!

Software & Accessories / Best budget printer to begin ?
« on: June 05, 2013, 01:12:24 AM »
I have around 220 MAXIMUM to spend on a printer to start selling prints to make a little extra cash.  Which printer would be the best bang for buck at this price or less and what kind of paper would be nice ( as you see I am a beginner in this branch). I juste want to start a small business selling to family friend and people they know and maybe have a larger audience after who knows :) It's all about travel photography, landscapes, objects, architectural shots so I don't need a large printer so just a bit larger than normal ones maybe?, otherwise I will just go to a company that does large prints for panoramic landscapes of course... Thank you for your precious advices and knowledge!

« on: March 11, 2013, 05:53:28 PM »
Hi all,  I'm wondering if it's worth it to buy one or another of these 2 filter types for a 2 months Europe trip. I mean for landscapes and what would be the benefits of a Polarizing versus the ND etc. It would be a 82mm filter (tamron 24-70 VC ).. Thank you!

Canon General / Camera insurance for Canadians (Travel)
« on: December 10, 2012, 05:31:18 PM »
I can't find any company with more than 500$ insurance on camera(electronic) stuff around the globe (I will travel to Europe) (theft,loss etc ).. I'm kind of worried about this because I will bring for about 6000$ in gear . Is there someone who can help me with this? Thank you
I'm from Quebec, Canada so I don't think a USA insurance can cover me..

« on: November 12, 2012, 08:28:00 PM »
BH offers it for 1300 (all included) used in great (9)condition, is the lens that much worse than the 2000 $ version II ? or is it a bargain?

Lenses / Bring 120-300 OS or buy 55-250mm ?
« on: October 21, 2012, 10:33:01 PM »
So my problem is that if i bring my 120-300 with me to my europe trip, it adds a lot of weight in my luggage.
Sure I can manage to save the weight somwhere else but,
If I buy the 55-250 and bring this one instead, I would lose 45mm(less than that since the 300mm is more like 275) but I would lose image quality and a lot of light..but it's inexpensive and light. And I don't want to spend more than 200$ so..

Also I was questioning myself if it's not a little risky to bring a lens that big and expensive to a 1-2 month trip.. So if some of you have travelled with expensive gear can give me advices, I would be thankful.
Your toughts would be appreciated!

Canon General / Europe trip, 1-2 months
« on: September 12, 2012, 01:51:28 AM »
Well the title says it all. I'll do a trip in Europe (all of its countries including Russia) for a period of 1 to 2 months and want to know where you guys have been and where would you recommend me to go, places that worth to go and take PICTURES.
 I'll take a (almost)universal train pass so I can go everywhere.
Beautiful landscapes, train stations, cities, zoo's, library, castles,nice architecture,bridges,historicals sites, waterfalls,mountains,nice cruises.. as you might understand, everything that makes a nice photo is welcome in suggestions!
Even if you've never been into the old continent I want your ideas!
I'll bring all my important photo stuff(tripod,remote,8-16sigma,24-70 tamron,50 1.4 sigma,120-300 sigma.canon 60D) so no type of pictures is excluded.
Thaaank you.

I just got the new 2.8 VC lense. Everything is perfect except one thing. When the auto focus is on, it is fast and focuses well, but the image jump to the right a little..Right after the focus as stopped, the image makes a little jump t the right. I have a 60d, so no micro adjust...

Lenses / Sigma new 105mm macro better than canon 100L macro ?
« on: March 20, 2012, 09:03:20 PM »
According to the test on; the digital picture, results of the  ISO 12233 Chart 100% Crops are better with the sigma new macro lens.  http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx?Lens=790&Camera=453&Sample=0&FLI=0&API=0&LensComp=674&CameraComp=0&FLIComp=0&APIComp=0 And with the other results on flare distortion and vigneting it's pretty impressive . What do You think about it?
