Lenses / Re: Sigma 35mm f/1.4 ART questions
« on: July 11, 2014, 02:51:16 AM »
My Canon 35L is very reliable.

(Sure I am curious about the Sigma, but I am very satisfied with my Canon)

EOS Bodies / Re: Eos7D mk2, How disappointed will you be if . . .?

If it has an SD- card slot, maybe now understanding UHS-!, but only half speed.

Buffer with only 15 frames depth.

No spot metering on the activated AF- field.

And all this only to make it fit to its pricetag aka cripple to fit.

FF vs Crop: the Fuji X- Trans sensor is very tempting.......

IF there is a new Crop replacing the 7D, I hope  Canon will show cojones.
Means: showing what is possible.
Example: double card slots- FAST ones!! Not the ancient interface for SD on the 5D3.
Or a fixed mirror, enabling a very fast framerate.
Or a lower MP sensor like the Fuji X Trans with very good high iso capabilities.

What do I expect: a new body, witch  is constructed to fit in its place.

Reminds me to time travel 5 seconds into the future: wait...... here we are!!!!

@ expatinasia: +1.

I would take my 1DMk4, or a 1DX (I donĀ“t have) for a major event, no test of a - lets say- non professional body.....

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Prepping my x100s for the beach

Wrap it in a separate towel with lenscap on when not using it.
Sand and saltwater are no friend of fine mechanics and electronic.

Never had a problem so far.

I own use the Mk1 a lot.
The Mk2: bit better sensor, swivelmonitor- not enough tempting.
Mk3: a Viewfinder- very interesting!!!

I will definitely take a close look at this!

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 300mm f/4L IS USM Lens - Sharpness
« on: June 07, 2014, 01:01:11 PM »
Sharp - definitely.
Bearable - lighter then the 70-200/2.8.

Be aware: 300mm is tricky with moving blur. And the IS is quite old.
So use it for best results with a monopod.

Noisy: yes, bit more and different then the new ISs.

24-105/4 IS.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 6D or 5DM3 need your help guys
« on: June 01, 2014, 07:25:31 AM »
If you dont Need a top notch AF System, just a good one: 6D.
If ist going to be more dynamic, or even bit of sports: 5D3.

Lenses are more important in my opinion, if you can afford it, the 24-70/2,8II is expensive AND delivers excellent IQ.
Or/and the 70-200/2,8IS II.

You will be satisfied.

I remember seeing a picture of a man with a quite large rack on his shoulders for bearing the flash.
Was it in this forum?

For quick and dirty out of axis flash I used the cord OC3 and a Sunbouncer, left arm; bit tricky, but for a few shots ok.

Canon General / Re: Best Backup Strategy?
« on: April 29, 2014, 03:53:38 AM »
I use three external HDs in a circle use.
The folders changed I backup on the external HD.
A little frog on the shelf shows me, which one I used the last time.

Enough security for me.

ThinkTank Street Walker HD for the first question.
In it is only place for a 15,4- laptop.
Big plus for me is you can fold the hip- straps under a pad, so it has a much smaller footprint standing on the floor.
