EOS Bodies / Re: No 7D Mark II in 2013? [CR2]

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?

When I go to cars and coffee I like to utilize some shallow depth of field! 5d2 with 50L

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!

I don't carry cash around much. I also don't  use my debit card. I only use my american express CC on my purchases, including all bills setup as auto pay.

The key is pay off your balance every months, then your credit scores will be 800ish.

NEVER NEVER NEVER buy any stuff if you can't afford it. NEVER NEVER put balance on your cc just because your cc line is $20K -100K. Most cc companies are using compound interest to charge card holders.

Last but not least, buy it from authorized dealers bc it's your hard working/earning money.

I do that every month and I have never made a interest payment on either one of my credit cards. So now I have a great credit score but nothing to do with it. There's stuff I want to buy but I feel I will never be able to get it at this rate. I would love to have a 70-200 2.8 II and a 24-70 2.8 II and a 100 2.8 IS. I guess I could try selling my 24-105, 60efs, and my 50d because after using the 5d2 I hate using the 50d viewfinder.

I hear ya and I do the same thing pay off my credit card every month and haven't paid interest on either card. Guess I should as for a raise haha. What do you mean pay yourself at variable interest rates?

Good morning everyone, I would like to know how most of you acquire your photo gear, do you pay cash for everything or is there a way to finace some gear at a lower rate than credit cards? I save money as much as I can but things come up and you have to pay for stuff, and so I put my photography purchases on hold and it seems like it stays there forever. I have a full time job and I make money here and there from photography but its annoying borrowing equipment or renting all the time and missing opportunities for great shots or business.

Lenses / Re: Canon 24-70mmL II v Canon 50mmL 1.2
« on: April 09, 2013, 11:48:19 PM »
I bought my 50 1.2 last summer and I love the S out of it! I use it with my 5d2 and its tricky but again if you get it right its awesome! Idk why people say the 50L isn't sharp I've got some great images with it or maybe I'm less pixel peepy than some folk. I haven't used the 24-70 II but I wouldn't mind having it but its plenty more than the 50L.

I think I will buy it.... and if it's a scam, who cares.... I am rich and can afford it. According to my email I have won several lotteries that I didn't even buy tickets for plus my recently deceased relative in Nigeria has left me 40 million dollars..... and there are even several Russian women who want to marry my cat! If it's on the web it MUST be true!

That was funny thank you!! Still chuckling.
