Canon General / You know, sometimes, when one is tired...
« on: August 04, 2013, 04:41:17 PM »
You know those moments, when you are tired, trying to do something anyway and at some point you realize you are not your sharpest...

well, today I was a bit tired, packing my gear, changing lenses... and I almost tried to mount two lenses together  :o luckily, no rear element was harmed making this, erm, story

did you manage something similar, or is it just me?

Canon General / tips for Barcelona?
« on: March 10, 2013, 04:54:27 PM »
Hi guys,

every now and then I see a thread like this with interesting photo-travel tips and so now I thought it would be a good idea to consult with you, because after some time I'm looking forward a short vacation trip with friends and my first visit of Barcelona. It will be in late April, 4days, two couples (not really a group of photo enthusiasts, so I'm not going to make it a main objective), I expect some nice architecture (I thought it would be a nice place to try TS-E, but I'm afraid I won't be able rent it anywhere around), I look forward the sea side (a walk on the promenade, beach, marina) and (hopefully) nice, warm weather for a change  :)

... so, should you have some tips for us, I would like to read them and would appreciate

Thank you!

Canon General / Do you see lenses when you check the time?
« on: February 17, 2013, 06:50:36 AM »
Hi,

sometimes (maybe after looking on lens offers too much), when I check what time it is and I look at the numbers it reminds me of a lens, e.g., I looked at my phone and saw 17:55 so I thought of my EF-S 17-55mm... (quarter hour ago it was the 17-40mm WA zoom I want and an hour later it was my first 18-55mm kit lens) 

Anybody else crazy in this way? (and how about after you read about it? :) )

By the way, I guess most of you use the 12h am/pm time so would only see UWA zooms like the sigma 8-16mm or canon 8-15mm, right?

Abstract / Apple on sticks (stuck at home)
« on: February 09, 2013, 03:45:04 PM »
Hi,

this is basically one of the stuck at home ideas that I came up with mainly because I wanted to play with off camera flash and I seen the chopsticks in the kitchen... however this is one of the cases when I end up with two pictures and I'm not sure with which one to go on with, so in case you feel like giving some feedback, please let me know which (if any) you like better

... and, if you feel like, I would also welcome other "stuck at home" ideas  :) ,

thanks,

Stig

Canon General / a 3 in 1 post, if I may
« on: January 27, 2013, 11:08:07 AM »
Dear Canonrumorers,

1, Hi,
because after being a long time reader I registered to say...

2, Thank you,
for all the info, advise and pictures you guys deliver in a nice and friendly way. I have been amazed many times by pictures posted here, learned many things about photography and I'm still being surprised by the technical knowledge in some posts (you kneurow who you are : ) ). And with that you also helped me with my...

3, Upgraaaade,
after about eight years with my 350D, I got the 6D. Now, with most upgrades, there is some excitement about some stop of better ISO performance, however I got some more differences to explore, including some things considered standard now : )
e.g., live view... there is a thing like that now,
or video recording... it does that as well
the sensor is a bit bigger in this one : )
the rear display with about 10 times more pixels gives a better clue,
ISO range went from 100-1600 to 50-102400 and noise wise... : )
plus the DR, colors, pentamirror vs pentaprism and of course bigger VF...
oh, and my 8mp went to more than 20mp
(and for some of you, I do know about the 5DIII, but where I live that's more than 50% the price and I couldn't justify it for my hobby at this time)

lens wise... I got the 24-105 kit (and am still surprised how wide is 24mm all of a sudden : ) ), have the nifty fifty, that was probably my best photo investment ever (except the initial), because for that price, it gave me something fast, a taste of primes and thought me about DOF, then the 17-55 f2.8 IS that replaced the 18-55 non IS kit about 2y ago (yes, bit better : ) ) and a Sigma 70-300 (that I got with the 350D kit and for some reason thought its only for crop, turns out it works on FF as well)... and some cravings, as probably most of us

So, thanks again and with this done (the upgrade was pending for a long time and got me confused and looking up the gear more than taking pictures), I hope to be able to helpfully contribute every now and then, however the downside on the camera is that I now feel to be worse than my gear and some of your pictures here support it strongly.

Stig
