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!

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

PowerShot Cameras / Help on a pocketable compact
« on: August 30, 2013, 07:01:26 PM »
Hey everyone! I'm finding that these days I'm less likely to take my dslr most places, and that because of that I'm missing some key moments with friends and family. I'd like a compact that can fit in my jeans pocket and yet still has decent image quality and will serve me well for a couple of years. Again, just casual snapshots here and there. I'd like to keep the price around/under $250. After looking at a few options, the Lumix zs3 is interesting me, but I'm not quite sure yet. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

ok, ok, people. Lets just all calm down a bit here. Instead of complaining about how the 70D isn't earth shattering, let's all go look at people's photography, give some C&C, and actually put our opinions to use helping somebody better their photography vs. trying to get the last word.  ::) ::)
