 Anyone know how to find out if you got into the first allotment? I preordered the day after the announcement.

Canon General / Re: Is it worth *really* studying photography?
« on: March 07, 2012, 04:33:49 PM »


my best advice i can offer to any student wishing to have a creative career is be prepared to eat breath and sleep your chosen profession....7 days a week year round. if you are passionate about the medium you have chosen all things will work out on the end. those that succeed chose this lifestyle because they NEEDED to and not necessarily because they WANTED to. from my first day of art school to today, i was/am constantly thinking about my art, craft, and business whether i want to or not. if my mind goes idle it idles on photography. this is what passionate means and understand that there are countless people out there in all creative professions that you will be in competition with who feel the same level of fervor. they will work insane hours as long as it takes them to achieve whatever level of success they need to fulfill themselves.

so the bottom line is no one can tell you if this particular education is worthwhile to your particular experience. it boils down to asking yourself what you really want to do and then doing everything you are capable of to make it happen.

find something you LOVE to do....the rest will take care of itself.


Another thing students should do is to learn other skills to compliment your photography. In today's world you have to be multi-talented to survive. Also network like crazy. Networking is another thing they don't really teach you in college. Surround yourself with awesome talented people. Reach out to professionals you admire etc..

Anyone know if Canon will be making a receiver dongle whatever so that you can remotely trigger 580EX II and older flashes with the 600 EX?

EOS Bodies / Re: Nikon D800 vs Canon 5d3 sample images.

^That's a good one. I still can't believe in the set of samples Canon choose. How can the Japanese be so good at making cameras, but so bad at photography?

Because engineers and marketing people aren't photographers.

Any CF recommendations from owners of similar DSLRS like the Mark II or such?

I highly recommend Sandisk Extreme cards. I have three 16gb cards. They're great.

I guess you didn't read the shits and giggles part of my post.

Just for shits and giggles. What do you guys think? So far Amazon the 5D Mark III is number one on the digital SLR best sellers list. The D800 isn't even on the top 50. Is this any indication?

173
You should be shooting with the flash off the camera anyway. You get better results.

Being single with a nice paying job and excellent money management skills allows me afford the 5D Mark III.

I pre-ordered from Amazon. Anyone know what date at the end of March they might start shipping? I'll be in Japan last week of March until April 1st and hope it doesn't ship until I get back.

Lenses / Re: What's your favorite Canon lens and why?
« on: March 03, 2012, 11:13:14 PM »
My favorites are the 35mm f/1.4L and the 85mm f/1.2 L  because they're ridiculously sharp 8)
