Canon lens classification is very specific.

Telephoto is a designation that includes 135 to 300 mm non-zoom lenses.

It does not include anything else.

My wild guess is an Image Stabilized 135mm f/2 for want of any better idea.

Forum members playing Wack-a-Mole with each other aside, I am savoring the rich irony of reading (in paraphrase) "poor Nikon owners, Nikon refreshes their camera line too often".


Software & Accessories / Re: Tablet to use as remonte for 6D
« on: June 22, 2014, 07:32:22 PM »
I am using DSLR Controller with a 6D as well.
I concur with everything tolusina said about DSLR Controller and it's use with a 6D. I am very satisfied with the app. Looking forward to it going out of beta, but it fully meets my needs for now.

I too found the built-in wifi on the 6D to be disappointing. I think I found specs indicating 8Mb/sec. That sounds decent, but that's rated speed and not actual transfer speed. The raw jpeg that transmits for viewing takes about 10 sec. The connection drops frequently to both my tablet and Galaxy S4 phone when the camera is hosting wifi. I am using a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1" 2014 tablet. I mount it to the tripod using an Arkon TAB-804 and a Lindy OTG cable. Love it.

You could use a camranger if you MUST go wireless. Far better and cheaper is to get the TP-Link TL-MR3040 for $40. Same unit as rebranded in the Camranger. NewEgg lists it's transfer speed at 150 Mb/sec. I wouldn't know. See DSLR controller website.

BBF is as tolusia said. No biggie.

Easy to discount people knocking focus-recompose if it works for you...and it's always worked for me.

Then I got curious. Lightroom says that 76% of all pictures I've shot this year have been at 400mm and greater. 10% have been shot with my fastest lens -  f2.8, between 16 and 35mm!

So what do I know  ::)
Depth of field - that's for other people to worry about.

yeesh, what have I started  :o

thread just got meta, 'cause the only time I got temp banned here was due to use of a very (very!) mild "blue" word.

ya might wanna substitute a couple more asteriks in there, cowboy.

"Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion, man."

"This aggression will not stand, man!"

"This aggression will not stand, man!"

So it's like a beta release. Looking for a slow rollout. Going slow.
Seems very responsible.
Probably a lot of work refining individual camera profiles, but they are devoted to their customers and wanted to release as soon as possible.

Why do reasons always have to be bad?

Have a thought about material offgassing, don't just go with whatever is cheap...

Geez, this place...

"Everything's a *... travesty with you, man!"

I was wondering where he got the toe... thanks for answering the query.
No more soft copies for me anymore... sweet!

You want a toe? I can get you a toe, believe me. There are ways, Dude. You don't wanna know about it, believe me. Hell, I can get you a toe by 3 o'clock this afternoon... with nail polish.

Written to get on Craiglists' "Best of" page, not so much to sell a lens.

"Best of"  is mostly formulaic, seasoned with a very few "extremely odd" listings.

Well, first and most important, you should be able to find a "Peet's" coffee most places you go in California. And there are plenty of other good specialty shops such as "Stumptown"'s like anything anywhere, you have to search for the best. Of course, it all depends on what you like. Coffee in California is way better than most places in Europe and South America that I've been to.

As regards Hollywood, 9.5 million people decided to move into the neighborhood after the studios got going. And that's just LA county. That had an effect on air quality.
When the studios got started, everything west of Hollywood was agricultural. Sure, they shot in the outdoors then, but it's all urban locations now. Not too many westerns being filmed in Griffith Park these days.


Not true. Yes, there have been updates over the past year, but mostly of the bug fix and tweak variety. I can't think of a single major feature that's been added since I started subscribing. And, yes, that pretty much violates the contract they had with their customers that major improvements would be made immediately available to their subscribers just as soon as they developed them without having to wait for version releases.

Perspective Warp is a pretty major feature, as is linked Smart Objects and 3D Printing support. All in a Jan 2014 release.
Go back through the rev. history, and you will see that Adobe has done what they said they would. All additions aren't expected to be essential for all photographers, but they do show a continous flow of new features
