EOS Bodies / For those interested in 7D2
« on: May 11, 2012, 08:38:35 AM »
It seems that in most of these thread's about new body's everyone will be happy if the price goes up 1000 dollars over current 7D body's pricing.  I personally am a hobby shooter with about 4 weddings lined up as the 2nd shooter this summer.   The thought of spending close to or more than 2g's for a camera is my max budget.   That being said I wanted to know what people do for money that makes a 2500 dollar pro-sumer body a good deal?

I'm ordering a Younguno 565EX today, and have heard I should have a sto-fen omni bounce, which to my understanding is just to bounce the light off the ceiling while making it softer.   Now I'm going to be shooting people outdoors for family photos and wondered if I should also get a soft box that will attach?   This is my first flash experience. 


Lenses / Help decide between two Tamron lens
« on: March 06, 2012, 11:23:43 PM »
Today is  my birthday and I have some cash to spend. Currently only have 450D with kit lens and 50mm 1.8. I'm holding out for a 7D2 or 70d in the  future and L glass is out of my budget now.  Found two lenses on Craig's list.  Both seem to have good reviews.  The 17-50 they want 350 and the 28-75 300. I mostly shoot landscape but just had a son and will be the second shooter at a few weddings this summer what would you pick?

Selling Tamron 17-50mm F/2.8 Lens for Canon. It is in mint condition and takes sharp images. The glass is clean and scratch free. There are a few dust in the lens, however, this does not affect the image quality.

I will also include the original box , end caps, a receipt and warranty card. I've had this lens for 3 years so there should still be about 1.5 years left on the warranty.

Bought this lens about 8 months ago, but got a full frame so am looking to get the Canon 24-70L. The lens doesn't have any scratches, dents or abrasions. The lens has been used lightly. It comes with the hood, the back and front covers as well. Only looking for serious offers. If you are interested contact me through email or phone and I can send you pics of the lens as well. Will only meet in person to verify both parties are happy. Let me know if your interested, looking to get the L series lens ASAP!

Lighting / wholesale cost of 580EX2?
« on: February 17, 2012, 08:52:35 AM »
Does anyone work for a store, and know what the pricing is to a distributor?   I like to shop at a store called ABT and they allow haggling.  So I want to know how much reasonable room I have to work with before going in and wasting my time.

Lighting / What 3rd party Flashes offer in camera control
« on: February 17, 2012, 08:18:39 AM »
I know I can control the 580EX2 from my 450D menu's but for price reasons was more interested in the metz 58AF2 or maybe another brand, but can't seem to locate information weather any of those can be controlled from within the camera menu's

Any help is apreciated

Lenses / What lens for 7D EF-S or L
« on: February 15, 2012, 09:45:21 AM »
I normally enjoy shooting landscape etc and want to get some lens, I currently have an XSI and want to upgrade to 7D or 7D2 or 70D depending on how much I can save up.. But figured I needed glass first.    So for a crop sensor what do most people like to use?   Since the wide L lenses are 28mm or equivalent to a 35mm EF-S I don't know if they will be wide enough.   Any thoughts?
