70-400 2.8 IS .

this. hahahah, for an arm and a leg. (...)

I'd suggest keeping both arms and both legs, as you will end up with a heavy toy... :)

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: FUJIFILM'S latest, X-T1 ?

If it actually focuses on moving subjects it will steal a lot of DSLR sales. I LOVE my X-E1 and the Fuji lenses, but if I am heading into a situation with moving or otherwise difficult subjects, I grab the Canon every time.

Good news for you!  :)

I think it looks great, almost clean at ISO 800, no matter how manipulated it was.
Even ISO 6400 is pretty acceptable.

And the elimination of line-of-sight for slave triggering is a godsend.

Yes, that alone makes it worth it!

Isn't the regular price irregularly high?  ???

Depends on your needs and budget. I find these flashes to be highly useful and think the price is well worth the functionality and feature set.

I agree, but what I meant was the regular price shown here seems to be a little higher than what I am used to see, supposedly to make the discount seem even more attractive than it really is. Not sure, though.

Camera Body Gallery / Re: Anything shot with the EOS-M
« on: January 27, 2014, 03:18:06 PM »

First shot right out of camera (not a great work of art!).  This was a JPEG and I cropped to post here.  Full manual (f 7.1; 1/200, iso 100).  A bit too dark for my liking and the histogram is a bit to the left.  Think I'll tweak some to the right for the future..  But, the IQ is very reasonable.

Damn, the moirĂ©!   I'll have to test out my M on something similar.

Have you opened the original file?
I couldn't find any moiré after opening the link and viewing large.
Cheers

My first few shots with the 70-200 f/4 IS. Found a great deal on a used one before Christmas and have just tried it out now since getting the 6D. What a stellar lens.



That's great news! I'm also buying the 70-200/4 IS somewhen (probably by the end of the year).
Post some more pics!
Cheers!

I used the term wake up. I was referring to waking from sleep delay and not the power on delay.

Sorry, I read this as wake up from power off, please forgive me misunderstanding this.

Congratulations for the politeness!

Canon General / Re: Why Scott Kelby Switched to Canon
« on: January 21, 2014, 10:17:12 AM »
Why does this "switching" by whoever to Canon gear matter at all? Well, except to maybe make all those wannabee "pros" feel more warm and fuzzy about their Canon purchases.
I know it is fashionable to make certain comments on the internet, that kinda look like they are "different" from others, but not everything, in life, has to be viewed with cynicism. I am a subscriber to Kelbyone and I like to know what camera gear Kelby uses, it gives us an opportunity to understand why or how professionals make their decisions ... same as me (or others) wanting to know what camera gear other CR members use - in Scott Kelby's case, he is a lot more famous than us, so the level of interest is obviously more. It does not mean people are "wannabee pros" wanting to "feel more warm and fuzzy about theri Canon purchases".

I have a few books Scott Kelby wrote. I think it is great he is switching to Canon, even though his books are not brand-specific (hence no real advantage from that).
And yes, I agree he is not the greatest photographer ever, but I learned a lot from watching/reading his stuff, so that makes me grateful somehow. Maybe that is the reason I liked to know his gear is now like mine.
Cheers,
Daniel

And failed to mention one thing he'd bring over from Nikon other than the shutter feel.... the dynamic range difference at low ISO where the Nikon actually is much better. So then you start thinking about all the money dangling above his head again.

It's quite possible that Nikon's dynamic range at low ISO makes no difference to Scott Kelby.  It makes no difference to me at all.

Wow, terrific photos on your website!

EOS-M / Re: My full gear in sling pack with EOS-M
« on: January 20, 2014, 07:22:09 PM »
Thanks for sharing this Surapon.  Looks like a great option for carrying all your M gear and some EF lenses.

Off topic:  Do you use a tripod with your M?  If so, the same as for your DSLR's or do you have a small one?

Dear  bholliman.
No, For this Tiny EOS-M and sling Pack, No Big Tripods, Just very Small Table top Tripods, which can carry = 15 pounds Load, When It Close, I can Screw to the Tripods hole at the EOS-M, and Use as the Hand Held Device of this tiny camera. Yes, It cost = $ 20 US Dollars 2 years ago, Made in China, and No brand name.
Enjoy.
Surapon

Interesting.  I assumed that was a monopod attached to your bag.  I love the size (and price).  I only have a large Manfroto tripod and ball head, I need to start looking for smaller, more travel friendly options for my M and even my 6D.  Thanks!

Dear friend
If you want Fiberglass Tripods = GREAT and Great Price( $ 145 US Dollars ) and Light weight tripods/ Transverse Monopod that can carry up to 20 Pounds of my Canon 1DS and Canon EF 600 mm---Yes Made In China, and I use in the Airplane trip fro last 2 years =

Which I highly Recommend. Yes, I have 10 Tripods form the Smallest one to the Biggest One( which cost more than 1200 US Dollars --For Bird shooting with  600 mm + 2X)
Enjoy.

PS, The Photo below = this great Tripods which I carry on the Cruise ship to Western Caribbean last October 2013

Show us some photos from that trip to the Caribbean!
