Lenses / Re: Prime vs zoom

Mostly primes, own only one zoom.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5Dc a good option?

In short, yes. Per dollar it is the best value available out there in any margin. It's still better than any APSc camera canon currently makes.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7D or 5D3 for low light candids?

Low light candids. When I hear that the 7D doesn't even touch my mind.

Doesn't matter. If anything I'd prefer the MK3 so I don't have I recompose so much.

Lighting / Re: Einstein Setup

Find your style of lighting. Do you prefer hard, soft, or in between? Studio strobes allow for so much more possibilities than just speedlites. I found out that eventually one or two strobes wasnt enough... Now I have four of them. :)

I've been using my g15 a lot lately and I quite like it a lot. It also adds capability to my current kit than DSLR simple cant do.

EOS-M / Re: EOS M and Flash X-Sync Question
« on: March 22, 2013, 04:05:47 PM »
I use my G15 @ 1/1000 sync speeds with slow el cheapo cowboy trigger's. I could do 1/2000th with faster triggers.
This is at 1/1 power on 580II's.

If EOS-M was completely electronic, I'd own one just for its sync speed but I haven't heard anything about higher speeds than its rating.

I love my 24LII. I prefer it over the 35L.

Thank you all for your comments, there are one or two options there that I hadn't previously considered. Especially the one about converting it to IR. Do you honestly believe that will add value to this camera???

Not really but you can expand your capabilities to do IR landscapes like these.

Lenses / Re: Best lens from my set for nightclubs?

RLPhoto - no idea why dance receptions are relevant to this...

Well I don't shoot clubs but dark wedding reception halls with a DJ is a similiar experience. The 24LII has worked well for me.

I still have a d30 :P I should probably sell it.

That may be a collector's item by now, worth serous bucks  :P

Lol like a 100$ on evilbay. I keep it for nostalgias sake and to prove a point.

ive never used a flash before, whats best for a wedding, i assume softening the light somehow will be useful
Is the built in flip diffuser usless?

I saw you site and Great work BTW. It was hard to believe you've never used flash. I submit to istock myself but I've been slacking off lately.  :P

Generally bounce flash, fill flash and Off-camera flash are whats going to be used quite a bit in weddings. The rouge flash benders and wing-light have done decent results with on-camera flash.

The options for off-camera diffusers are ridiculous. I generally like octoboxes & umbrellas for portability.

The sto-fen really isn't really a diffuser as much as it makes a speedlite more bare-bulb. This means that a stofen won't make the light softer but will bounce light in a small room everywhere giving the sense of softer light. Using it directly with no bounce surfaces is a waste of power.

Personally, I use Rogue Flashbenders and the Winglight.

I still have a d30 :P I should probably sell it.

24L II is a fantastic dance reception lens. Small, Compact, discreet, and Fast.
