Lenses / Buying Advice: What First Lens for a Full Frame?
« on: December 16, 2014, 05:18:14 PM »
I dished out on the Canon 6D, which will be my first full frame body. I'm looking into buying a new lens, since the only lens I have on my Canon 7D is the gorgeous Sigma 18-35 f1.8. Obviously, it's not exactly made for a full frame body, so I'm sure there'd be vignetting. As a first timer in the full frame market, what would be a good versatile lens?

I do multiple kinds of photography: landscape, portrait, concert/music

I should also note that I'm on a very tight budget.


Software & Accessories / Canon 6D Accessories??

Hi all!

I caved in and bought my first full frame body through the Adorama deal during Cyber Monday week. Will be upgrading from my trusty Canon 7D.

After researching some things about the camera, I ran into some accessories and was wondering if screen protectors were crucial or more of a gimmick. Considering that the LCD screen on the 6D is plastic, I found these glass screen protectors: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/909210-REG/vello_gsp_c6d_glass_lcd_screen_protector.html

Any thoughts?


EOS Bodies - For Video / Upgrade from 7D to 6D or MK3?
« on: December 02, 2012, 02:43:17 PM »
So I've had my Canon 7D for the past 2 or 3 years, and I've been pretty happy with it for video.

The thing is, I want to upgrade my body to the next level: a full frame body.

Now that the 6D is out, I'm curious if it's worth the $1,000 price difference between the 6D and the 5D Mark 3.

The Mark 3 has some unique features like a headphone jack, 100% view finder coverage, etc.

I'm just not sure. I do have a budget though..

Pricewatch Deals / Overstockdigital Legit?

I've tried searching the forum and didn't find anything about this, but I was wondering if Overstockdigital.com was a legit site.

They have the 24-105mm lens for $809 brand new..seems too good to be true.

Any buyers from this website? :o

Lenses / REALLY BAD Lens Scratch
« on: June 18, 2012, 04:26:04 AM »
So being that this is a pretty bad scratch, it actually affects the outcome of my images...

What ways are there to fix this? And approximately how much would it cost just to replace that frontal glass?

Btw all those dust is apparently trapped under my lens filter...and I'm still in the process of trying to screw it off, but it's on waaaay too tight. I don't even remember tightening it up that much.

This is a Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 DC HSM Lens.
