EOS Bodies - For Stills / Nikon vs Canon - Honest Poll before photokina.
« on: September 07, 2012, 10:41:50 AM »
A Simple straight forward poll, Who is better in Bodies and Lenses?

Two votes are allowed, One for body choice and Lens choice.

EOS Bodies / I love Primes.
« on: August 23, 2012, 05:07:35 PM »
 I love Primes. Do you?

The more I use them, The more I'm glad I used my budget on them. ;D


This is the tablet I've been waiting for. A Tablet that can actually do work and run serious app's for my photo needs with a USB PORT!!!

This is good stuff, A full OS in a tablet. 8) The possibility's are endless with that USB port. Tethering shooting, Storage, CD Drive, Printers, and so much more.

Are any of you interested in this tablet? Because if the giant microsoft can pull it off, The Ipad will have some serious competition.

I was just approved for a CPS 5D3 and 85L II Loan on 9-28-12.  8)

Is there anything specific I should look at on the 5D3 thats not on my 5Dc? I'm talking little details.
(besides the obvious AF, IQ and build quality improvements.)

I've been looking at the 85L as well, so i'll have to pick the 5d3 or 85L by the end of the two weeks demo period.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Camera Body Gallery? Missing?

There is a Lens gallery section, but no Camera body section? Why Not? I'd be nice to see bodies performing at different setting to see differences.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / 5D3 or 200mm f/2?
« on: June 22, 2012, 09:38:09 AM »
I've been considering both of these options for a couple months now. I've already got the cash for either but been waiting a bit on both.

5D3 would be nice upgrade from my classic. Its ready to die soon and don't really want to fix it when it does.


I've always liked the stunning shots from the 200mm f/2. Heavy, impractical but amazing. Specialist item.

I'd Like to hear opinions over both.

Site Information / When are you usually on CR?

I usually post when I'm saving large PS files or rendering previews on LR.

When are you usually on?

Third Party Manufacturers / Pressure By the Nikon D600?
« on: June 07, 2012, 09:59:22 AM »
Would Canon Drop its 5D3 prices after Nikon will release its rumored Entry Full Frame Camera the D600? I hope so.


Pretty Impressive Specs for the Rumored 1500$.

Lighting / The Flash Bracket? Do they really matter anymore?
« on: June 06, 2012, 10:53:54 AM »
I was talking to a fellow photographer who works weddings all the time. We were discussing on-camera flash and he spoke of always using a flash bracket for on camera.

I've seen them before, those large hulking contraptions that some photogs carry around on a wedding. Is it really necessary though anymore? I think one of those would slow me down but if the benefits are really worth the hassle i'd might look into it.

Supposedly, it will remove the horrid side-shadow when shot in portrait orientation but why not just use a TTL cable and hold the flash in proper orientation rather than carry a bulky and heavy bracket? Or just bounce?

Dunno, It was interesting enough to want some opinions on brackets.

We've all made mistakes from time to time with our camera. Being able to shoot RAW can save our butts in post if we may have looked over something in the field.

Lets see some Miraculous RAW File Saves from horrid photos to usable or even great shots with the Power of the RAW and masters of the darkroom!

Ill start with this.

Horrid Mixed Lighting, On-camera flash, High-ISO, Shallow DOF, and a Busy Family.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Canon CPS 5D MK3 Evaluation Period?
« on: June 04, 2012, 04:06:49 PM »
I Emailed CPS for an Evaluation 5D3 and they responded it wasn't avaliable for rent yet. When do new bodies become avaliable CPS gets them on-hand? An couple weeks? Couple months? A Year Later?

If you started from scratch again, lets say theft or storm, all your equipment was lost.

What lenses and cameras would you re-purchase first and others later? Would you take this opportunity to switch to nikon?

Im positive when we started in photography, we were ignorant on some topics, but now with experience how would you react to a total loss and re-build you system from scratch?

I'd probably start again with this basic setup.

Canon 5D Classic

100mm f/2

50mm F/1.4

28mm F/1.8

Under 2000$ and I could do 90% of all my work with that system.

Lenses / Why no modern nikon lenses faster than f/1.4?
« on: May 12, 2012, 12:10:30 AM »
Id like to know a good answer to why Nikon doesn't make an 50mm 1.2 w/AF or and 85mm 1.2 like canon? I've heard it's from the smaller size of the F mount compared the EF mount. Is this really true? I'd like to know.

I decided on a one year plan to pay for some big glass. I do portraits and the 135mm f2 is my money maker but i'd like more compression but I have a problem.

I've read the 200 F2 is the best portrait lens ever made but its more expensive than the 300mm. Also if i buy it and a 1.4 Extender, i will also have a 30mm 2.8. So why does any one buy a 300 2.8 for portraits?

What should i get for my situation?
