I'd recommend step-up before I'd recommend step down, but as long as it doesn't vignette then go for it... That's what they're made for.

Question: Can someone please explain why digital sensors have a much narrower dynamic range then film ? This is apparent to anyone shooting outdoors in bright light - the shadows are black and the skies blown out.The DR that an expert user can achieve using aggressive eposure or exposure bracketing together with optimal development of raw files is quite different from what the average user gets with AE and jpegs.
Will digic 5 improve this? Is it possible to improve it?
For the expert/nerd, the main limiting factor is the camera sensor. Digital sensors are basically linear with an obvious saturation point and a noise-floor. Film is (I believe) very different, with smooth roll-offs in high-lights and in shadows. Using one definition one might claim that film has a lot of DR. Using another definition, one might claim that film does not give an _accurate_ recording of the scene brightness over such a large DR. In the end, it usually our eyes that are the judge, and if you prefer the look of film I can only suggest to keep using that.
I do believe that many comparisions of film vs digital is unfair. I.e. digital is compared to film on films terms. For the expert user, this might not matter as she will choose based on her own knowledge. For novices, this could lead to false conclusions.
When I bought my kit from adorama, it was a 5d2 24-105, battery grip, spare battery, case, 8GB UMDA Sandisk CF, remote release, and software bundle for $2990. When you take out the goodies It would put the 5d2 kit near 2750 give or take (after I bought that it jumped up $300 the next day and $100 more once the rebates ended)... Must have been a typo on the price? But they honored the price.
That's a great deal if it was a Canon grip. All those items add up.
Brokerage Fees are the fee the shipper will charge you to process the importation of the product. USPS may not charge you anything. UPS definitely will charge you brokerage fees for ground shipping but usually not for air shipping. Note that my experience is based on shipping from the US to Canada.
he said he uses the pelican for travel and events. i assume for travel he means by flying which totally makes sense to have a pelican and you pack a smaller bag for when you get there for your daily needs.and for event photography nothing wrong with a pelican there again makes total sense to me.I keep my lowepro bag when I need to carry a lot of gear and cant bring the pelican, but travel and any professional event, my pelican is my go-to case.
How does the Pelican 1510 do for backcountry hiking or walking through an urban setting?
Actually, I have a Peliacan-Storm im2500 (the Storm equivalent of the Pelican 1510, i.e. airline carry-on hard case). The problem I had with just a hard case for travel is what you do with the case when you get there, i.e. how do you walk around with your gear? A little inconvenient to drag the hard case around. My solution was to remove the padded divider system from the Storm case, put the gear in the Lowepro Flipside 400 AW, and put the Lowepro backpack inside the Storm case. Sturdy, lockable protection for travel (also handy if you're forced to check you bag for whatever reason), plus the convenience of a backpack when I get where I'm going...
Did this CR3 just totally fall by the wayside? way back in Jan 2009?
EF 17-40 f/4L II [CR3]
January 15, 2009
From a usually solid source. IÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â´m told to expect an update to the 17-40 sometime in 2009. The current lens a cash cow for Canon and any replacement is sure to be a hot seller. The main purpose for the upgrade is to improve full frame performance. The replacement will not have IS.
