Reviews / Re: Are Gitzo's really overrated?!

Saying bad things about Benro in the Philippines can cause torch and pitchfork crowd to appear.

Even if it's 1,000% true. ;D

Gitzo's worth it if what you are supporting costs more than $3,000 worth of gear or a project you can't fail.

EOS Bodies / Petapixel: Canon Full Frame Mirrorless
« on: December 03, 2014, 02:44:37 PM »
http://petapixel.com/2014/12/03/rumor-canon-get-serious-mirrorless-2015-full-frame-milc-works/

Nutshell:

Canon is rumored to be developing a full frame and/or rangefinder mirrorless interchangeable lens camera.

Judging by how well Sony & Fuji's forays are this may end being true.

Let's pray that Canon's foray is more impactful than the EOS M.

Thanks Click and tayassu.

tayassu coming from the original 7D the AF is superior. Well worth the upgrade if you shoot action/wildlife/sports/events/or any other application that involves movement.

If you tend to have non-moving subjects then a 70D is a better fit.

A lot of friends call this the "baby 1DX".

A little bit of trivia. This lens is the top selling L lens since pre-ordering was announced online.

No surprise.  There's a lot of pent-up demand.  After all, everybody has been expecting an upgrade to this lens since... well, roughly since the 70–300L shipped back in 2010, and anybody who could afford to wait has waited....
It is outdone by the Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III Lens and Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Lens.

I never had any illusions that it will be outdo the ISO & dynamic range of a 1DX & 5D3. My expectation is it be better than the original 7D.

In all accounts I am impressed with the 7D2.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Lexar 64gb 1066x card on sale
« on: December 01, 2014, 01:36:27 PM »
Amazon now has the 64GB Lexar 1066x CF Card at $100 with 2 units left + sales tax. In my case 9%.

Got myself a 256GB PNY USB 3 flash drive for $70 & a 256GB PNY SDXC for $97. The SDXC card is a great & cheap way to expand the storage of a Macbook Air. Although you will need to eject it to enter deep sleep. For the USB drive... dude, it's 256GB USB 3 flash drive for $70. Yeah, it ain't top speed but it's 256GB!!!!!!!!

Would have gotten 64GB Lexar 1066x CF cards but will need to unload my 800x cards to do so. Got lazy.

Wonder how massive/heavy a 1" or APS-C SX60 HS equivalent would be.

My mistake, I meant Lexar CFR1. Link shows read/write advantage. I have the dual slot UDMA 7 reader from Lexar and the difference is too small to bother upgrading but if you do not have any USB 3 card reader then I'd buy the CFR1.

If your browser shows FREE shipping then great but on mine it says "Calculate Shipping"

Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica) by alabang, on Flickr

The barn swallow (Hirundo rustica) is the most widespread species of swallow in the world. It is a distinctive passerine bird with blue upperparts, a long, deeply forked tail and curved, pointed wings. It is found in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. In Anglophone Europe it is just called the swallow; in Northern Europe it is the only common species called a "swallow" rather than a "martin".

There are six subspecies of barn swallow, which breed across the Northern Hemisphere. Four are strongly migratory, and their wintering grounds cover much of the Southern Hemisphere as far south as central Argentina, the Cape Province of South Africa, and northern Australia.[2] Its huge range means that the barn swallow is not endangered, although there may be local population declines due to specific threats.

The barn swallow is a bird of open country which normally uses man-made structures to breed and consequently has spread with human expansion. It builds a cup nest from mud pellets in barns or similar structures and feeds on insects caught in flight.[4] This species lives in close association with humans, and its insect-eating habits mean that it is tolerated by man; this acceptance was reinforced in the past by superstitions regarding the bird and its nest. There are frequent cultural references to the barn swallow in literary and religious works due to both its living in close proximity to humans and its annual migration.[5] The barn swallow is the national bird of Austria and Estonia.
