Lenses / Re: Canon 85 1.2L USM II for only $10!?
« on: February 11, 2015, 10:49:53 PM »
In my long career of buying and selling on the internet and Craigslist it's always a scam if the seller lists there email and says contact me before buying. You usually can google the email address and see postings all over with bogus pricing and incorrect details about items.

EOS-M / Re: Why do I keep my Eos M?
« on: January 29, 2015, 10:36:26 PM »
I thrall love this camera. Ive never used a mirror less camera before but I've had this for a couple years now. Yea it's not the same as my 5d3 but it can go so many places and I can get better photos with it than my phone can do (sgs4) I've made some really great photos with it that I couldn't do with my bigger gear. Plus my girl likes using it cause all you do it touch the screen and it takes a photo of what you want! Recently I purchased a FD adapter and I'm using my FD 50 1.4 and having a blast and I'm very impressed with the results. Sure there plenty to improve and I hope they do but I still think the M is a tad underrated. My 40d was awesome, 7d super, 5d3 wow and yet I'm still going back to the M because it makes me think and that's fun. That's why I keep my M

EOS-M / Re: EOS M3 24 MP Sensor?
« on: January 29, 2015, 10:23:42 PM »
I like my eos m a lot and I sure wouldn't mind a new M that improves on the features I like about the camera line.  I just want it to be faster af and fps with more video options and I'd be really happy. The size is awesome and I really love using my fd lenses with it!

EF Mount Lens/APS-C Format

Does this mean it will mount to a full frame camera but fills an aps-c image not full frame? I think I may have got a tad excited because I loved my tokina 12-24 f4 with my 40d so if they made a new ultra wide for canon I'd be happy!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: POLL: Do you need 1/8000s shutter speed?
« on: January 06, 2015, 11:10:23 PM »
I need it for stopping power in bright light even without a very wide aperture. What I mean I shot a hockey game outdoors in bright sunlight, and part of the arena was in the shade. I wanted to keep my shutters above 1000 to stop movement, my aperture as low as possible to fade out some annoying backgrounds and my ISO at 100 to keep my dynamic range up to deal with the glaring snow and black uniforms. Between 1/1000 and 1/8000 only gives 3 stops of difference and I found myself having to continually adjust my aperture to compensate for the variety of exposures needed.  I found myself wishing for 1/16000 second exposure that day.  I'm sure a better photographer could have found a better solution but that's just my 2 cents

Buy an old canon 1d classic, I have one and it can shoot at 1/16,000 of a second. Not my photo but an example of 1/16,000!

Software & Accessories / Re: BG-E16 an ergonomic disaster?
« on: November 17, 2014, 11:04:50 PM »
The accessory grips have always been 'thick' even before the tray for the LP-E6 batteries.  I find the vertical grip ergonmics of the 1-series bodies much nicer than a gripped body.  On the back of the camera, the integrated grip of the 1D X is smooth, compared to the back of the gripped 7D where the bottom of the grip protrudes backwards.

And this is why I don't want to let go of my 1DIII and get a 7D II.  :-\

Lenses / Re: Is this 70-200 2.8 II worth buying?
« on: October 28, 2014, 09:47:03 AM »
Canon said about 180-400 for the repair thats parts and labor. I have seen a couple new ones pop up locally on craigslist but for under 1500 bucks might be worth it. I will call lens authority later for some more details.

Lenses / Is this 70-200 2.8 II worth buying?

They have many to choose from is it worth buying these now or will Black Friday in a month bring about better deals? The one for 1,470 is actually tempting if it really doesn't show the flaws on the photos.

Lenses / Re: 70-200 2.8 II or 100 2.8L and 135 2 and 200 2.8
« on: October 19, 2014, 05:12:17 PM »
I love my 135mm but it's so specific use, the 70-200 can be so much more useful. Size and weight of the 135 is perfect but it's often too long and too short for many things. 70-200 is perfect for so many things and great for arm exercise.

Samsung galaxy S4, upgraded from an iPhone 5 and the GS4 was so much better. So much better. Wish it had stabilization but I enjoy the feature of using the front and rear camera simultaneously.

So im curious to know if this is better than my eos m. I like my eos m but if this can do everything the eos m can but faster and even more portable then I might be looking at this camera. I just use my eos m for portablility, eBay, and video stuff.

Software & Accessories / Re: Aluminum vs. Carbon Fiber?
« on: August 14, 2014, 11:19:37 PM »
If the new Alfa Romeo 4c proves anything more than it's going to be one hell of a car it's that carbon fiber and aluminum can work harmoniously together find a tripod built with both components incorporated and I bet you'll be super happy.   :)

The most gear demand photography is test chart photography!  ;D

Some of you people seem to make me laugh more than I should on this forum! Speaking of cat photography, my cat in the backyard taken with the very iPad mini I am posting with.
