Lenses / Re: Review - Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II
« on: June 13, 2013, 11:04:59 AM »
I had a 16-35II for 2 years. Corners unacceptable, even at f8.
Sold it, bought the first non- Canon- glass after 30 years, now I am happy.

Win7 64bit
16gb RAM
i7 860
1tb hdd
3x 2tb external hdd as backup

No wishes, runs fine.

Lenses / Re: WA lens advice 16-35 II or the TSE 17

Tested a 17-40 over a weekend. Center ok, edges very soft plus heavy CAs.
Owned a 16-35 II: Center very good, edges: sigh. Soft again, even at f8....

Sold it, bought a Tokina 16-28/2,8. And this lens I like to use now.
@ Neuro: although it has a bulbous front element, it doesnt need TLC. But it gets it anyway....

Only a suggestion.

Good luck!

Cheapest: 50/1,8. Bit better the 1,4.
85/1,8 is very good too, can be too long on a crop.

Think about Neuro's advice of creating your own light.

What would Joe McNally say to this statement?
Or David Hobby? Syl Arena? and so on........

Is a product if my fantasy. Small with a MF- sensor, AF double cross over all the viewfinder, changeable size if the pixels, no weight.

Is this a bag for a AE1- Program? Looks very similar to it, although mine looms a bit more used after 30 years.....

Speaking for my PC and the usage of RAM: 6GB should work flawless.
I felt a little bit of faster performance from using 8gb instead of 4gb ram. Wasnt THE big step.
Or you WANT a newer machine.....

And the second fix: whats an "abnormal image"?
Thx for explaining.

@ readycool: if I am the pro there (getting paid)and he is a guest I tell this the person which pays me.
I dont want to be the @ss for missing an important shot. This is a problem of the host, not mine.
Being on a wedding means there are people taking pictures.

PowerShot / Re: Down to the RX100 or G15...
« on: May 28, 2013, 07:51:03 AM »
Bought the RX100 in Oct. 2012.
What a lovely cam. Yes, small. Of course, I have my 1 and 5.
Stealthy, very good performance at low light.
Having big hands too: my solution is the small strap and the bag.
And: never had facerecognition before. Very helpful.
The rawfiles are also very "tortureresistant".
Had a Samsung EX1 (500 or so in the States) before:
the Sony is MUCH better.
8000 clicks later: I'm still in love ..... :))

Be friendly, smile, try to get "connected" to the people, if they are close.
My small RX100 is very stealthy, a DSLR like a 1 or 5 gets attraction.

Never had any trouble, knock on wood.

The law:  depends on the country. Doesnt help getting beaten, but later..... its good to know, whats "right" and whats not.

To play official: never thought about this, so my ID working for the police would be helpful. And the yellow jacket.
Good idea!!

Causing a smell like this I would not make any more experiments, I would give it to a CPS.

Try with a different camera.
Same with or without the grip.
A different charger.
(like Mr. Spokane said: could be the charger).
Or the camera cant read the information on the chip (is it a problem in the cam or the charger?)
Summary: facts should lead you to the fact, that is common.

I had this painful moment once with the 5d2 and the grip. It was a little bit loose, this blocked the controls on the grip, but not on the body....
