If you shoot a digital camera, Its possible through this mans research. Its very sad but his legacy lives on in all our cameras.


EOS Bodies - For Stills / What do you Love about the 5D3? POLL!
« on: November 09, 2012, 01:39:16 PM »
The 5D3 seems like an under-whelming camera to some CR users. Instead, lets flip the conversation on its head.

What do you like most about your MK3 or about the MK3? My Fav's are the AF and In-camera RAW processing.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Cruise to the Cancun. What lenses should I take?
« on: November 08, 2012, 03:07:16 PM »
I'll be on a cruise to Cancun for 5 Days and Nights. I'll be expecting friends, family and possibly alot of Stock photo's in the trip. Landscapes, people, places, inside the ship at night and some street. I want to pack light, and perhaps a CR user has been on a cruise before.


580 EXII

I was thinking 24-105L + 50L + 580EX II but wondered if I'll really need the 24L for the dark dance floors of the ship. I'm torn.

What should I bring?

A Straight forward poll.

Edit: I just got my 24-105L from Ebay for 750$. I'm really digging it, My copy is a razor. Check out this little quick shot of the lens cap.

Reviews / Review - Canon EF 50mm 1.2L USM

I'm curious as photographers, Over the years we own different camera bodies and Like to see the progression.

My progression

1999 - My grandfather gave me my Minolta Maxxum AF 35mm Camera W/ 50mm 1.8 & Yashica MAT-124G

2002 - Sold my Yashica and saved cash for a beat-up used Hassleblad 501CM w/ 85mm Zeiss 2.8.

2005 - Bought a old minolta flatbed scanner & A canon 10D w/50mm 1.8. Lightly ventured into 4x5 viewcamera's for landscapes. (mostly not my equipment)

2008 - Sold my Minolta scanner, Hassleblad, Canon 10D. Purchased a Rebel XSI, bought 5Dc, 10-22mm, 50mm 1.4, and 135L

2010 - Broke XSI CPS trade for 7D. Bought 50L

2012 - Sold 5Dc, Bought 5D3 and 24L II.

*Future* - Sell 7D and 10-22mm, Purchase 5D4

Thats Where I Am Now. Lets hear you story!  ;D

Lenses / 24-105L vs 24-70 Tamron VC
« on: October 29, 2012, 03:44:26 PM »
I'm looking for a GP zoom that will fit into my existing prime kit. I will use it for location studio work, travel, and In combo with a Fast prime or two.

I like the 24-105L and I could add my 50L to make my GP kit. The only issue is that for 900$ I'll be getting an F/4 lens, which makes it limited in my live event coverage.

I also like the New tamron 24-70 2.8 VC because of the speed/price. The only issue is it's a tad bit shorter and Makes it awkward to pack my 50L as it covers that focal length already. I could pack a 135L as the combo.

Or I could just continue to use my prime set and I'm just getting buyer's itch. I've been getting around ok but with non-work stuff, a Zoom would be nice. :o

What should I purchase?

Lighting / Sell Older 580 EXII's for 600 EX-RT's?
« on: October 25, 2012, 11:23:24 AM »
I'm considering switching out my older 580 EX II's with a set of new 600 EX-RT's. I was also considering Radio Poppers to get my 580's wireless TTL. I've seen the 600EX's for as low as 550$ on Evilbay.

Is they're a better or cheaper way to get TTL off-camera flash? I like the idea of not having to mess around with triggers but If its cheaper, Why not?

Reviews / My Mini-Review of the 85mm 1.2L II.
« on: October 09, 2012, 08:07:49 PM »
Just my Little mini-review of this sweet lens. Feel free to critique it if you like, I don't do many reviews.


I just did a shutter count on my 1.5 Year old 7D. Its been through quite a bit in a year and a half.

Its almost half-way through its life.  :(

Lenses / Poll: 35mm Vs 50mm Primes
« on: September 14, 2012, 04:11:00 PM »
This focal length generally will determine the first set of primes someone will buy.


35mm - 85mm - 135mm

24mm - 50mm - 135mm

What is you preferred standard lens choice?

Third Party Manufacturers / Kodak 620X ISO performance vs now?
« on: September 13, 2012, 03:51:53 PM »
I read this review, and believe that the manufacturers can deliver much better IQ than we're lead to believe.


Stunning for year 2000 tech.

Lighting / Direct Flash - How to make it useful?
« on: September 10, 2012, 03:43:43 PM »
I can never get good direct flash, how do you get decent images like the one below.


I like off-camera and very competent in that, but direct flash I never could quite grasp it.
