EOS Bodies / Re: In defence of the 100D
« on: December 16, 2013, 02:27:13 PM »
With the recently acquired pancake, the 100D is a solid "take everywhere/don't leave the house without it" kit.  Yes, it doesn't do everything a 5diii or a 7D does, but for hit and run, light travel, non-conspicuous snaps, it does the job.  And, the kit lens will do decent AF for video when needed.

EOS Bodies / The SL1 & an S95

I'm getting to olde to carry my bigg boy stuff very farr.  But, armed only with an 5 day olde SL1, the kit autofocus STM, a 50mm 1.2, and an agin S95, the keeper stills/video from a 10 day stay in swinginn Vegas exceeded my lame standards by a Ho lot.  The SL1 is now my travel body!

Another positive vote for the 1.2L, my only prime.  Excellent for video, and stills at midnight.

Sony, but video only.  Canon for stills, and am now exploring DSLR video.

A 7d2 would meet my meager needs for FPS. 5D3 & 2 stuff is getting some pub, albeit, in a niche publication.

I am partial to 16-35, but at my age, the pancake might make sense.  Does anyone know of a "bacon" promotion to go with it?  Fortunately, my cardiologist is not a member of this site, eh?

Congratz!  You will love the MKIII!  Even in my 2 months of shooting the new unit, I can see that my sub-standard work has improved to standard.

24-70 v1 most of the tyme.  Itz a tank, but is right in the range of my talent.  And, you can shoot in the rain, up here, :D in the beautiful Miami Beach of Canada(upstate NY).

F4 L, eh?  Solid tech with the lack of weight.  Congrats & enjoy!

I knew Canon nomenclature from my video days and was too olde to learn a new language.  No regrets, worked out well for me.

"At least I haven't heard any mention of a shotgun!"

In elopement photography and videography, barrel distortion can be a good thing!

Welcome aboard, laddie!  This site is a goldmine of information.

My username is based on my fascination of hyphenated names, probably from watching too much Carson, Leno, Letterman, Pythons, et al, on late night television.  So, it is a combination of catwalker Heidi Klum, and former 3rd baseman for the Dodgers, Ron Cey, accompanied by a first name and middle initial which fit my level of talent.

Some very good advice above, eh?  All I can add is to try and visit the venues to be used before you have to go live to determine lighting and sound quirks, angles, shooting positions, et al.  "Emergency weddings" are why I restrict myself to elopements where run & gun is my 1st and only General Order.

Lenses / Re: Have 5D3, will shoot... but which lens?

Another vote for the 24-105 L, even in my talent-free hand, it is a winner in decent light.
