Kea - a New Zealand icon
Nice shot ... I like sharpness and clarity of the little feathers next to the bird's beak ... stellar stuff.

Thanks Rienzphotoz :)

Lenses / Re: looking for feedback on choosing a 70-200 for weddings.
« on: November 28, 2013, 05:03:05 PM »
My wife uses the 70-200 IS II an a 24-70 2.8 MK1 for her wedding photography.  The 70-200 is great for low light (ok, not as good as a f1.2), but moreover allows for versatility and lfexibility with the zoon.  It also makes a great "paparazzi" lens, as you can catch people unawares and get great natural reportage shots as the day goes on, or for the long aisle in big churches.  If you can get a MK1 version of the 70-200IS for a reasonable proce and play with that before forking out for the big beast, it'll give you a feel for what the art of the possible is with the lens.

Yes, it is heavy, but it is dead good too!  :)

+1 for adding a fast prime to kit  ;D

Coming straight for you - better take some cover!

Actually, all of you are wrong.

The Planet Earth is accurately described as an "oblate spheroid" and is neither round nor flat.

In common use, "round" is an alternative to "flat". Then it is either round of flat, by definition.

A circle is round, a ball is spherical.

I wonder what it is in 11 dimensions?

I thought we were up to 16  dimensions?

I thought it was 11 dimensions too - 4 'normal everyday' spacetime and rest curled up and invisible to us ;)

I'm back to the old Tamron, which, by the way, I picked up on Craigslist for $260 about three years ago.


What a bargain - enjoy  :D

Could be a major game changer!

I hope its true - innovation is good for us consumers as Canon will not doubt come up with their offering.

This gif gives a little more preliminary footage http://nesn.com/2013/11/tom-brady-peyton-manning-handshake-prompts-photographers-to-get-into-shoving-match-gif/ I can't see what got the guy riled, they were both static, planted and on target, same cameras, same lenses, cameras within 18" of each other.

There doesn't seem to be any bumping in either gif, certainly nothing to lose your shot over.


This gif is better - thanks for sharing

"Every single pixel can have a different shutter time! This means the sensor allows a dramatic increase of the dynamic range"

How interesting!

Get another 5D III unless you need faster FPS in which case a 1D IV may fit the bill. Followed by a 50 prime - my personal favorite is the f1.2.
