I wondered how this thread ran up a high post count so fast - I was hoping for lots of images, instead it's just dilbert being a rude ass and the fallout from that. How disappointing. Dilbert, are you sure you know a good picture from a bad one? It's a bit more subjective than knowing the difference between a camera and a lens, and since you have trouble comprehending the latter, I question your ability to judge the former.
But back to the topic at hand (sort of, not a full cityscape but at least a long exposure in SF)...
Anyone could have taken those photographs as there is nothing special about them.
Really constructive criticism(!)
If you want to make your photos stand out, there needs to be something special about them, be it style, composition, post, etc.
I suppose dawn/dusk/night photos that are long exposure is a phase that photographers go through.
So my advice is go take a bunch more long exposure night time photos and get it out of your system.
.Yes, but you need to check it in if you are flying...
Most folks seem unaware there is a model of the Swiss Army Knife that has a lens cap remover in it. There's a pincer device that folds out, slips down into the lens hood and pinches the cap off quicker than you can say Swiss Bank Account! I think the knife is the "Photographer" model -- less than $100.
The shots look good, man. Did you use the kit lens? This crowd would like to see some ISO 800,1600,3200, and 6400 shots with out noise reduction if you get the chance.
What in the holy hell is Canon doing? To many stupid cinema cams and lenses and idiotic mirrorless bodies and lenses?
They're already way, way late to the party and they're delaying again?
We need some low read-noise sensors, some high-pixel-count sensors (cropping is a big deal for me), and some new bodies. The 5DIII is a great camera, but has high read noise. The 7D is old, has the old 18MP sensor (not bad, but not outstanding either) and the new AF systems are better.
I want a 7DII with near-zero read noise sensor and a 5DIIIn with nothing new but the low read-noise technology in the fall!
Oh, and while we're at it, VIDEO CROP MODE!!!! And expanded version with infinite steps and smooth zooming in any resolution would be really, really helpful!
I'm pretty sure that's why Sigma introduced the docking station for firmware upgrades.
Canon and Nikon may change their firmware in the future to try to shut third party lenses out of some features. By offering a docking station, major firmware upgrades can be added to the lenses at home. Sigma can release new firmware and, hopefully, stay one step ahead.
This is the one I use.
Is there a chance that this could be a good upgrade from a T1i? All pics I've seen so far look pretty good. My T1i results are really good with my Sigma 17-50 and Canon 100 2.0 and 200 2.8II and I won't be going with a ff anytime soon. The 1.6x factor serves me well for sports, etc., I don't like articulating screens and probably don't need the features of a 7D.
