Canon General / Re: What's Would You Keep? [The anti-G.A.S. thread]
« on: July 26, 2014, 12:32:23 AM »
5Dc - All my 600rt's - 24-105L + 50mm f/1.8'

That's pretty much all I would need.

I like your style RL!  I think we're on the same wavelength... if one were paring down, it would likely be due to finances so the most expensive stuff like $2K lenses and new bodies would go first.

That would indeed leave me with my 5Dc, etc.  And I could live with that.

My kit would be similar to yours....

5Dc, 24-105L, 580EX-II, 16-35Lv1 and 15mm Fisheye.  If I were lucky, I might be able to keep the 70-200 f/4 IS L too!  I also wouldn't mind still having my trusty 28 f/1.8 Prime for low light and that could be instead of the FishEye if necc.  This is essentially the gear that I felt super great working up to and using years ago and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.  :-)
I'll manage without the newest tech but I'll keep my lighting gear.

On a funny note, a thread about slimming down gear when I just jumped into MF digital is quite ironic. :D

I discovered something really cool today. I was shooting some Fracking platforms and noticed how bad the heat shimmer is here during the summer. Unfortunately, a Daytime shot was required and the simmer was making it difficult to use longer lenses to flatten the subject against the sky.

But I popped on my Big stopper and immediately noticed the simmer went nearly completely away on long exposures. Which I didn't think about before but was really cool to know now. I wish this is very helpful to other photographers who need to get past the daytime simmer.

Heres an example. Left is at 1/40 and the right is @ 30 seconds. Simmer be gone.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D MK I Still Relevant?
« on: July 24, 2014, 07:30:50 PM »
Its currently the cheapest practical entry into FF photography. I would still call it relevant if your only into stills and want more IQ than a Rebel because the IQ @ all ISO's was better than my 7D at the time. They can be had for 400$ which is a steal for a FF Digital camera that takes photos.

I don't shoot Pro video but I tested it out and @16-24mm with steady suspended hands + IS and moving, It looks really good. 35mm not so much.  :-\

Ebay is good. I've bought and Sold lots of equipment through them. I'm selling alot of my kit right now at the moment and I know someone somewhere will buy it.


What are you selling?

Your pic shows the c-pol with the 50mm but description says uv filter.
FYI.

I grabbed the wrong Box. :p

Lenses / Re: Which Bokeh Monster?
« on: July 24, 2014, 07:56:00 AM »
85L because you already have a 70-200. If it's too pricey, the 85mm 1.8 still looks really good.

16-35 f/4L IS is very steady handheld with IS on. Maybe with a stedicam it would be even better but I'd look into that lens

Twist for travel Pods and Clip for heavier Tripods. Then again it has a lot todo with the crap twists and crap clips that are out there.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: New lamp, what to buy?

I dont know but A PCB Einstein @ 640 W/s would take atleast 6+ Speelites to get kinda close to the full power output. It would be the same with these if they are measures the same.
