By the way, I also have an old Nikkormat EL-2 (I think it was also sold as Nikon) that I like to shoot now and then. How do you like yours?

I love it! Having never really been in much contact with film, I like to bring it out occasionally to play with, or bring along on trip to the botanic gardens.  It was actually handed down to my by my Grandfather, back from when he used it, so that makes it even more special.

That last photo looks like a Ansel Adams frame but I don't blame you for taking it. I would have done the same. :D

Right on! The Ansel Adams photograph taken at Snake River Overlook in the Tetons is one of my all time favorites, so naturally I had to stop by the last time I was out there. It looks a little different nowadays, but it's a really beautiful place.

Thanks everyone for the feedback!

I don't find the color ones to look natural, a bit too yellow here or green there, sometimes overly saturated. The nice thing is that this is easily corrected if you shoot RAW. You can even make variations on the theme with different renderings to suit different moods.

Thanks for pointing that out. I've thought that I may have some color accuracy issues with my laptop, so I should check on fixing that. I do shoot RAW, but until I look into the color issue I'll slightly desaturate the images, and adjust color temp

Hello! I've been a long time browser, sometimes poster. While I've posted some individual sets before, I'd Like to put out what I think represents my best work (in landscapes, anyway). Any and all constructive criticism welcome!

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Materials used in EOS Camera Bodies?
« on: November 23, 2013, 10:53:02 PM »
Why doesn't Canon use Gorilla Glass for the camera body LCDs, so we don't have to worry about the LCD being scratched or damaged?

My second question, is there a lighter composite material that camera bodies (and lenses) could be made from, that is just as strong as titanium, which would help reduce the weight of camera bodies and lenses?

how much do want to pay for that?

Despite the fact it pisses me off when comments such as "your camera takes nice photos" and such are made, I try to keep in mind that they are genuinely trying to complement you/me, and by lashing out and correcting them on something they obviously have no expertise in, you're only making enemies, and reinforcing the stereotype of snobby, rich, tech-headed photographers. I just simply smile, nod, thank them, and if they have questions, answer them in the most respectful way possible

Sports / Cross Country

I recently shot the Schaumburg sectional and the Illinois State Cross Country Finals. As a cross country runner myself, it certainly made it easier in some ways (access to team tents, deep, deep knowledge of the sport, access to special areas, etc.), and they were really exciting events to shoot. Enjoy! C&C appreciated

As a Cross Country runner and photographer, I've found that its good to shoot the start immediately after the gun, but avoid shooting anything in the first mile or so as the runners are all bunched up, and typically don't make very good photos (although there are some exceptions). I like shooting in places where you can see the crowd/route behind the runners, as it tells a bit more of a story. Remember that the last mile or so of a race, participants are often fighting down vomit and cramps, and it shows on their faces. this makes for some VERY interesting images. And, if you are the "official" photographer, I should hope you have direct access to the finish line, as those are some images that are often expected from the main photographer. Good luck!

Definitely a Sony 70-200 with some sort of filter

Yes, this is what I expect from Canon. Some useless items in between some perfect ones such as the 5D3, 24-70 II, 17 TSE, the great whites, etc.

If you take off your doomsday glasses and look at the financials of Canon and Sony, probably you'll be surprised that it is Sony that seems to be more likely than Canon to go under. They make more money on life-insurance than their electronics division, actually they don't make any money on their electronics division at all./quote]

+1 I actually think it's a cool idea. Some manufacturers create classy looking cameras, that also have excellent IQ and performance, but are pretty expensive. These days, kids my age are all into this whole classy hipster photographer thing, but don't want to plop down cash on an "ugly" DSLR or an 1K+ FF or large sensor classy camera. These collectible, non-mainstream different-colored camera definitely fills a niche, albeit a small one, that no other prominent manufacturer has yet to fill.

Also- please don't start on the whole "canon should be spending money and time on upgrading pro equipment, not Powershot cameras!" First off, they are two completely separate departments, and second, canon has other customers than you
