Canon General / Re: Why Wedding Photographers’ Prices are “Wack”?
« on: December 09, 2013, 02:35:45 PM »
Wedding pictures is nothing you need like a hospital or a flat/house.
So take the price or leave it.
It has a reason why good wedding fotographers cost that money.

My 2€- cents.

Lenses / Re: Do You Take Better Pics with Primes?
« on: December 07, 2013, 10:27:16 PM »
I use my 24-70II most of the time.
Expensive- but worth it.
I like it.
My 35/1,4L I love to use.

Why? I dont know.

BTW: in german they are called "fixed- focal".
Interesting the english name "prime". Like "number one" or "the best".

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Get a new camera every 150,000 pictures?

If you like it- keep it.
150.000 (I think entry-level last only 100.000) actuations the shutter should work.
Can be much more or less.
If you take some research in the net you find a page where user write in their number of actuations and if its still alive.

I really didnt understand if you want to have a RX100 or not.
So if yes: as the Mk2 of it is the actual model, the Mk1 is available for ~ €400, must be around $400, 500.
I don't buy the new one because I like it smaller and lighter then the Mk2, SO:
why not the RX100?

It is my favorite pocketable. Ratio Size/IQ unbeatable .
This said after 13400 actuations.

Highly recommended.

I print myself, and I am glad to have the 3800.
Yes, around €1200 buying it, but then you have the lovely 80ml ink cartridges.

I love to print myself, because of my history having a darkroom in the past century for decades and the control of every step.
And: the 3800/3880 are able to go down to 13x18cm (5x7inches) for my album.
Cleaning cycles: a necessary PITA, or you have clogging.

Have fun with your new optic.
One day, after saving a bit (lets say- two years) I buy a 300/2,8 too.
Till then: only small items, like the fourth 600RT....

I needed it, really! The first three are incomplete without it!

If you can afford it, go for the IS- version.
You will have a lot higher percentage of keepers.
Ahhh! The  sweet pain of choice.

Software & Accessories / Re: Adobe.....You changed my mind. Too Bad.
« on: December 02, 2013, 10:50:29 AM »
What a nice experience......

I fear the day when I change my system and have to migrate my stuff (CS6 only by now).
So what: so I keep my hardware longer!!!

I hope you got everything going again!

Canon General / Re: TEN YEARS FROM NOW.
« on: December 02, 2013, 04:32:03 AM »
In ten years I hope I still have the passion like today.

New tools?
Yes please! Whatever it may be.

(the radio triggered flashes from Canon where a surprise and very welcome- something like that I hope!)

EOS Bodies / Re: "Two New FF Bodies in 2014" - if 5DM4, would you jump in?
« on: December 01, 2013, 02:26:37 AM »
My wishlist is not long:
a faster SD- interface or double CF.
and an increase of the buffer size. 6 or 7 with RAW + jpeg is a joke.
combined with the slow SD a real PITA.

You looking on the wrong place for help.
Go on, and show us your pictures made with your shiny new toys!!!
Or pictures of your toys. Macro should be good for details.
Sorry......
Have fun!

Could someone explain this black friday thing?

Thanks a lot!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon 5dmk2 - weak usb connection - options?
« on: November 29, 2013, 03:40:48 PM »
You already mentioned all possibilities.
And I would recommend not to move a thing when it is connected by USB.
To be on the safe side get the WiFi.
