EOS Bodies / Re: Do You want a 1.3x sensor 7D-like camera?
« on: October 20, 2011, 01:54:56 AM »
I like my 1.6 crop! No, am not interested in a 1.3x:

1. My 300 3.8 becomes shorter...

2. My Sigma 10-20 would still mount, but would only become useless at the wide end (I've mounted it to an old film rebel; it vignettes severely at 10!)

And, all my lenses would get worse in the corners. So, no...

And Canon had better not be thinking of making the 7D mark II the next ASP-H camera!  >:( If they do, I'll stick with my 2 7D's and dream of the olden days...  :'(

I cannot wait!!! ;D Wait a minute... I don't know when I'll be able to afford it...  :'(

On a serious note, I hope the technology trickles down to the 7D mkII soon... And hopefully a few more megapixels! (Songbirds are never big enough...)

I'd love a good 36 mp in my 7D mkII! Taking bird pictures, I usually crop most images...

United States / Photography is Terrorism?

Here is a link to a news article about a man in Scotland who was banned from a mall because he took two pictures of his daughter with his cell phone camera:


Living here in the USA, I am glad things aren't to this point yet, at least not where I am from... but that somewhat-related post I saw earlier about possible mandatory shutter noises in cell phone cameras could be heading this sort of way, maybe?

I've long been uncertain about this picture. I can give you 10 intellectual reasons why it should work, yet I don't think it does and I'm not sure why.

I really like this picture just how it is, no crop. The lines through the picture pull the eye to the subject. Abundant blank space further draws the eye to the subject. The subject being nearly in the center also draws the eye to the subject (rule of thirds is not always the best idea...).

But most of all, this picture works because of the story it tells. I could immediately identify with this picture. I've seen this scene in life many times... This image really captures life in one of its smaller moments.

Update: I ordered a 300 2.8 of ebay, NIB, and it finally came toaday! It had to make it from Canada through US customs, which held it up a bit, but it is here!!! 

Thanks for all the help everyone! Will have to try to post some pictures in the lens section when I get the chance...

One benefit of this is that one can instantly post one's pictures to Flickr, Facebook, and everything else...

Real question: When will someone decide to stick a little bit of cell phone into a camera? The compant who does this first will sell millions, and I will buy one. Hopefully it will be Canon, lest I stain my pure soul with vile Nikonianness, or worse still Samsung! (not that I actually have anything against Nikon... I own a Nikkor 105 2.5 pre-ais or whatever the nomenclature is, and love it!)

Or, maybe there is a droid app which would allow a person to tether his droid to the camera, run DPP on it, and then post the shots near instant-like?

Lenses / 300 2.8 (Mark I) Availability
« on: July 18, 2011, 01:07:59 PM »
Back in late May, I purchased a Canon 300 2.8 from Abe's of Maine. They told me at the time it was backordered, but they thought it would be available soon.

This lens is still on backorder, and they say that Canon says that they have no information on when it will be available. This whole time, the 300 2.8 has also been on backorder at BH, but adorama has one for about 1,000 bucks more...

My question is: does Canon intend to fill this backorder? Will I get this lens, or is Canon simply saying nothing hoping to hold out until the 300 2.8 Mark II arrives, and tell me I'm out of luck then?

Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

Lenses / Re: Your lenses wishlist for 2011.

I'd Like:

50 1.4 II
7-14 f 4 efs (trying to beat the sigma 8-16!)
400 f4 IS, and NOT DO

maybe a few 1.4 efs primes? (24, 35, 85, 105, 135!)

Lenses / 70-300 4-5.6 IS (Not L) Parts on Backorder
« on: December 22, 2010, 08:04:12 AM »
Hey Everyone,

I'm having my Canon 70-300 IS (not L) repaired, and the parts (inner housing) are on backorder. Anyone else experiencing this issue? Is Canon trying to phase this lens out?

Lenses / 400 F4 for ASP-C?
« on: December 06, 2010, 01:58:29 PM »
I wish Canon would make one of these: a 400 F4 IS, not DO, designed for ASP-C. Hopefully it would be inexpensive (comparitively; I wouldn't mind 1,500-1,900). Though EF-S would probably make it incompatible with TC's, so hopefully they could make it ASP-C but not EF-S?

Is this a crazy idea? Or would others buy this too?
