EOS Bodies / Re: Ye Olde Film Photography
« on: June 17, 2014, 03:23:08 PM »
I started with film also…developed my own film in college and for a few years after.  Always wanted to convert the downstairs bathroom into a darkroom, but never happened.  I miss it, it was a lot of fun, but digital is so much easier.  I did learn a lot and I think I can still kinda smell the chemicals today.  I agree with several people,…it was always very cool to see that image come to life in the developer tray.  For several months now, I have an itch to pick up a 500 CM and give 120 a try…

+1 on the SL1!

A new 7D II sounds cool!,…but is everyone else as confused as I am about Nikons alpha-numeric system on naming their camera bodies?

this was great!, Thanks!

I "upgraded" my handstraps  http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=19696.msg371049 with this http://www.amazon.com/dp/B003HNTL6Q/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=2I11YFOGFI76L&coliid=IIRPZAFCP6CIV almost perfectly matches the "L" red.
COOL! ... I thought this thread (like a few of my other threads) is probably doomed with no contribution ... nice to see people contributing, especially when an Admin chips in , it makes it all the more special - Thank you. I think these inexpensive little things can help control our GAS problems, especially when the wallet does not support the "desire" ;D
+1!, great thread!
and,…… +1 to Surapon!

I agree.  It needs to cost $600-700, and have built-in Facebook connectivity and an Instagram filter, it'd be a hit.

I'm laughing, laughing a lot,...just spilled drink.....

Canon General / Re: Why Scott Kelby Switched to Canon
« on: January 20, 2014, 09:22:50 PM »
Someonewhoknows says it more eloquently, but basically he switched because he's a whore.

Think that may be a touch harsh. He's a media person who employs +/- 50 full time people and has a lot riding on his success. Thats a lot of healthcare, paid vacations, 401k's, salary, etc etc to worry about each month. Someone comes along with a sponsorship, you would listen too. And I promise they didn't sign Scott, they are sponsoring all his classes, videos, workshops, etc. He doesn't "have" to change but to be honest, yes he does. Race car driviers don't have to drive the car they race for on their day off but they do. Bruno Mars can drink whatever soda he wants but I promise you won't see him in public with a coke cola. Thats the way the game is played. He's not an artist. It's no different that a working photographer taking a job to shoot for a healthcare or sports company. They pay you and tell you what they want/expect. Same deal here. Whore is an easy word to throw around anomously on the internet but expecting something for pay is hardly whoring ones self.
FWIW Since Scott has changed has his work really improved? He still does the same long lens shot of someone holding up their helmet and a 600mm closeup of someones face just like every other amatuer would if they got to go on the sidelines. Don't think a D4 or a 1dx  really matters.
They are all tools,...cameras, paints,..the stove used by the world renowned chef

Hey Graham!, great images and fantastic review!  You put a lot of work into this review, thanks for your time and effort!  I just picked up 6D as a second body and so far have enjoyed it. Again, thanks for your work!

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: What am I doing wrong?
« on: January 18, 2014, 10:50:01 PM »
What did you do wrong?  You bought a Manfrotto ballhead instead of one from Really Right Stuff, Kirk, or Markins.

Sorry, but that's the honest truth... 

EDIT:  I assume you were mounting via the tripod collar?  My old 488RC2 would settle by ~5° under modest load, and would slowly drift over time.  I upgraded to the hydrostatic 468MG, which still drooped by ~0.5-1° but no drift.   I can mount my 1D X with 70-200 II via the body plate on my RRS BH-55, lock it down and it doesn't move...then leave it like that for days and it still won't move.
Have to say RRS stuff is simply awesome,...very high quality.  It's an investment, but worth it!  I have no worries during a shoot, and look forward to using their gear.  Again, it's a bit of an investment, but I would go the RRS route again, and again.

Thanks Don!
I'm there for a work meeting for a few days.  I will have a car and plan to drive about the area.  I looked at Cape Breton, that looks very nice but a bit far of a drive with the time I will have.
Never been up there, but the coastline and small little towns look to be fun to shoot!

I will be traveling to Halifax, Nova Scotia in May.  Wondering if anyone has any location ideas to shoot.  Any suggestions would be great!, Thanks so much!
