Lenses / Re: Would you rather buy used or refurbished?

Used locally is preferred for me then I can check everything out. I haven't bought anything used on eBay as far as camera gear but I think if there's enough photos and honest info I'd do it. And I've never been afraid of a refurb product, there's no industry definition of what a refurb is. Refurb could be someone opens the box never used it but returned it and it was labeled as refurb because its no longer new. Used on amazon is do if the price was right but I think for the camera stuff I've seen it's usually over priced. I'd go with any option keeping in mind the price and doing a little homework to secure a good deal!

Lenses / Re: Canon 40mm vs 50mm f/1.4

I have the 50 1.2L and the 40 2.8 and I used to have the 50 1.8 I and II I love my pancake so much. It's my eveyday lens on my 5D mark II it's image quality is superp mine is very quiet focus is quick. I like the bokeh I can get with it. It keeps up when I am photographing my cat. It's amazing and so much fun to use on my full frame camera! I just leave it at 2.8 and shoot away! I've used the 50 1.4 in the store but it didn't do anything for me. I'd rather have the discreetness of the pancake.

I like that the Canon 200mm 2.8L didn't receive any votes!  :P

Video & Movie / Chromakey Green Screen Editing help
« on: May 06, 2013, 07:41:25 PM »
Hello I am pretty new to the 5D2 and I have been using its video mode more and more. I have a small green screen setup at home and I want to make some videos with it can anyone offer some help in a program thats pretty simple to use that can aide me with chromakey? I havent done much video editing other than windows movie maker so something cheap or free thats easy to use. Heck I will spend some extra bucks if its easy to use. Google hasnt been pointing me in the direction I want to go. Thank you!

Disappointed but not 100% surprised

Reinforces my notion to buy what has been released vs waiting for vapor ware (or rumored future products)

Or be like me and watch your savings account grow!

Lenses / FD Lens to use with AE-1 and 5D2
« on: May 01, 2013, 12:13:42 AM »
Hey I've been looking at the EdMika conversions and I want to ask your opinions about awesome lenses that I could use with my AE-1 Program and my 5D2. Also if I get a focus screen for the 5D2 will that aid focusing with older FD lenses?

Stumbled upon this one while out wandering around Newcastle Uk. Luckily had my walk around camera Sony Nexus 5N which I love!

IMHO, the 458 is the greatest supercar on Earth at the moment. What a machine!

Best super car, no. Heck not even the best Ferrari! I like the 458 though.

Only thing I wish the 40d had is micro af adjust and I'd still have one it is quite the camera.

Where did you shoot this and what measures do you take to prevent flooding haha. I can only imagine a mess! But good shoot I love the blue and yellow withe the green balloon almost as if there's a subtle message with those three color choices eh?

and 4/4  all with a Canon 5DIII 24-105L and obviously a bit of lightroom on some

I really like this, has a end of the world type of feel. Is this a snapshot from a movie?

I dislike the center column they have in Manfrotto 055XPROB for which I really cannot lower pod than the column permits (unless I shoot upside down).

That isn't true, the Manfrotto 190/055 legsets are very adaptable, they allow for both ground level, and cantilevered over table type setups very quickly, easily and securely.

Here is a shot with the 055CXPRO3 set at ground level, just slide the column to the horizontal position.

I'm quite sure I have the same tripod and I didn't know it could do that. Very cool to find that out!
