EOS Bodies - For Stills / upgrading from rebel xsi: T4i or used 7D
« on: October 20, 2012, 04:05:15 PM »
Last night, I was shooting sprint football in awful lighting. Unfortunately, my rebel XSi could only go to 1600 ISO and even with the 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II, the photos were very underexposed. The itch to upgrade is getting stronger!

But I do not want to spend over $1000 for a new body.

At this point, both will be amazing improvements over what I have now. But I need your help in deciding between the two of them. The 7D has great AF but the T4i has a newer processor -and if that means less noise, then that's going to sway my decision.

Here's another couple fave shots from my first college game. Taken with the Rebel XSi from the stands. Hence that sad dark blur. Always open for tips!




@!ex I love the vividness of the colors of your photos!  Got any post processing tips to share? =D

moonwell: really love the action in your photos but to my eyes, the colors are a tad too bright and oversaturated.

Hi! Haven't been on this forum for a while!  now that I'm in college and always strapped for cash, I'm hoping to make some money with this beloved hobby.

I've been shooting since sophomore year of high school(portraits, sports, wildlife). Shot homecoming/prom portraits for dirt cheap(Free to $10) for friends and friends of friends. But here, now I have a fresh start to set prices and not worry about friendships getting in the way.

Any tips on starting out?

deviantArt gives unlimited storage for free and you can organize your photos into albums. You can also choose your username before the deviantart.com. But I think the best way is to have a Facebook page rather than posting it on your account. It's easier to be seen/shared and then you don't have to worry about random friend requests.

EOS Bodies - For Video / upgrading from XSi.. what to choose?
« on: July 25, 2012, 01:50:08 PM »
Hi! It's been a while since I've been on canon rumors and didn't keep up with all the new models and stuff. So I need help! =)

I've had my XSi for 3yrs now(first and only DSLR) and while I love everything about it.. I'm having the video itch. A while ago, I planned to upgrade to the 7D once it gets off market so its cheap but then I watched a video of the new mirrorless camera and like how easy it is to focus during video mode and how i just need an adapter to fit all my lenses. It's smaller and cheaper.

I mainly do portraits, wildlife and sports if that helps. I'll still use the XSi for photos if I do get the eos m since i want a viewfinder but then wouldn't the money be better spent for something like the 7d?

ahh can't decide! help!

Lenses / Re: 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II chromatic aberration

avatar13: I've had the lens since January. Yesterday I did some graduation pictures and again the color fringing is thick. I forgot to remove the filter! Next time I'll try it out without the filter.

So this amount of color fringing is perfectly normal?

This isn't the first time I've seen color fringing like this on my shots. is this a real problem? Meanwhile I'll try out the software

I used B+W MRC haze filter... do you guys think that might be the problem? :/

and I always thought chromatic aberration and color fringing were the same thing? How can you tell color fringing from chromatic aberration?

Would you consider my print screen to have minimal chromatic aberration?

Lenses / 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II chromatic aberration
« on: May 26, 2012, 01:15:50 PM »
Since getting the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II last winter, this lens has been the most used lens. It's my first L and I love everything about it... except the chromatic aberration. One of the specs on the lens was that it was improved to minimize chromatic aberration. I guess 'minimize' is the key word because to me I feel like there is a good deal of chromatic fringing -equal to the amount I get from photos using the 55-250mm based off my experience.

But maybe I expected too much and maybe if I used the 55-250mm the color fringing would be even worse. At first I ignored it but lately when I edit photos, those purple fringes are really annoying. But I could be overreacting.

I'm not sure exactly how to do a 100% crop so I'm print screening what I see at 100%. This is unedited:
