Here's what you do, sparky.

Take the $500 or so you might be willing to spend on your ultimate gear statement and donate it to Partners In Health:

They will use it to keep a few children from dying of tuberculosis or cholera, maybe provide some clean drinking water for a few people.

Then you go down to the local surplus store and get yourself a nice canvas backpack to throw you stuff in.

Your eyes may still hurt, but your spirit will fare better.

Finally, when (if?) you get to be 55, come see me and we'll talk about what's important in life.



What kind of people design camera bags? My guess is people who are 55 yrs old, who wear clothes from the early 90's With no eye in fashion. because 99.9% of all camera bags look really bad and they hurt my eyes when i look at them.

I use a lowepro classified 160, which is actually an ok looking bag but i need a smaller size backback or a really ergonomic shoulder bag/sling for my 3 month trip to Japan where i will walk up to 10 miles on some days.

I also want to be somewhat fashionable or at least have it be ok looking so i won't stick out as a stereotypical photog with a huge square looking thing on my back that could house a small person.

I want to fit one 1DX body, two primes and an ipad. (smaller size is also a good thing when i'm riding the metro in Tokyo at rush hour.

Maybe your suggestions and findings will be useful to many others too.

So have you found anything good? I've looked at many.. like lowepro, crumpler, kata etc... And they all look horrible.
Price is not an issue.

Thanks!



I love it distant star! haha, and im just a whipper-snapper, but raised old-school

Nice work dirtcastle. I hate PP but should learn it better:-/

I know. He has a 5dIII and is asking THIS question.... hmph, wish I had money
What is wrong with that question? Just because he owns 5D MK III does not mean he needs to know every technicality about HDR photography ... there are plenty of accomplished photographers who never use HDR function.

True true. He did say he didnt notice the 1 second shutter speed. He may not have realized that HDR works by combining 3 exposures.

I would much rather see ISO 25 and less, without any loss in highlight range.

I wish we had better acess to very low ISO's as well. I would have a lot of use for ISO 10 for creatuve shooting on brighter days. Even with my ND and polarizing filter on I want a lower ISO often

It is everything I wanted to know, thanks! glad you came through neuro! Too bad, some old cheap lenses could be fun to play with, but not as much fun without a working AF haha.

Lenses / Question about older lenses
« on: August 29, 2012, 09:45:25 PM »
Adorama has a used section I look at now and then, and a lot of the older lenses, like sigma's, say they are for EOS (autofocus) but then say "for film cameras only". I have used a canon 35-80 on my 60d and it worked fine. I know lens coatings are dirrerent and all that jazz. Anyone know why they say "for film SLRS only"?

Lenses / Re: No AF: Broken flexfoil in 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
« on: August 29, 2012, 09:32:39 PM »
the flex-foil is removable right? wonder if canon would sell that piece. I want one of these lenses for the same purpose. I have a 35-80iii I got for 5 bucks at a yardsale(attached to a rebel X) i had to take apart and fix for my trashing-lens but it is not wide enough and too soft :-/

Good to see a supportive wife here! and what a B-day present!

The way the camera changes the amount of light for HDR is through shutter speed, so to get that last over-exposed shot it needs to hold it open longer. Try bringing the EV values closer together, like o,-1,+1, then the shutter speeds would be less obviously apart, like, 50th,100th,25th. Doesnt sound like you have a problem, my 60d does the same thing with AEB, but I have to add them into an HDR image myself later :-P id die for a 5dIII!or II for that matter

Odd, and unfortunate.  I haven't had any problems, AF works normally (except for the AFMA firmware bug) on 10 different lenses, including a 24-105L. 

For some reason, AF fails to work - and I mean completely, it doesn't even try - with my TS-E 24mm II and MP-E 65mm.  I suppose I'll sort that out one of these days...   :P

Ahh neuro, I bet this sence of humor doesn't get understood as well to the general public, but you make this geek laugh

Any lens that has extending barrels will get dust. Having a dust-free lens only lasts a few outings
