Wait. How did he take the same exact photo with flash and without?! Isn't that just a lie then?

I'd also add a 50mm 1.8 or a 40mm 2.8 to your kit, cause they are inexpensive and will give you faster apertures to handle lower light than the standard zoom.

EOS Bodies / Re: Shutter count request to Canon.

I want to know how many times I turned the power switch on on my camera, how many times I have pushed the auto focus button down half-way, how many times the spring sprung to pop out my CF card, how many times my battery door flung open, how many times I switched lenses.... What if one of these things goes while I am shooting a critical shot?!

Isn't the "shutter" just one tiny part? WHAT ABOUT THE REST!!!

Ignorance is bliss.

Nikon Ai-S lenses are awesome manual metal lenses. You can buy cheap adapters to mount on EOS.

I'd look into the 28mm f/2.8 (it's considered one of their "sharpest" lenses ever), and the 105mm f/2.5 (a classic Nikon portrait lens) to start. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the old Nikon glass. You can find good deals on ebay- even if they are beaten and scratched to hell, they still perform great.

I shoot raw with the 7D. Never any problem with noise. Just don't underexposed your shots!

I only increase "vibrance" in post slightly (depending on scene). I find it a "smarter" saturation slider, in that it won't clip the already saturated parts of the image.

What is the difference in price between PhotoShop Elements & CS6 Master Suite?

Tons of features and more programs. Not just allowing you to sabe bigger files...  You are kidding right?

Um, I didn't ask what was the difference between the programs- I was making a point referring to the difference in price!

IE: Software comes in a range of prices, hence, the reason the 1DC can be so much more expensive.

Canon General / Re: How many of us are making money out of photography ?
« on: September 20, 2012, 08:07:08 AM »
I went to SVA (School of Visual Arts) and majored in illustration, have been a professional designer for over 10 years, but all I want to do is photography. I've slowly incorporated photography into my workflow that it is now a big part of my day-to-day. I also do freelance photography on the side.

Lenses / Re: Poll: 35mm Vs 50mm Primes
« on: September 19, 2012, 10:47:13 PM »
A question I always wonder:

Why do people say the 50mm is a little tight on a crop body, but the 85mm is never too tight on a ff. Same goes for the 85mm on a crop vs the 135 on ff.

Lenses / Re: Which to get: 50mm f/1.8 or 35mm f/2?
« on: September 19, 2012, 10:41:23 PM »
I'd suggest the 40mm f/2.8 too. It's cheap and incredibly sharp wide open. I actually sold my 50mm 1.8 and 35mm f/2 after I bought the 40mm. I like that it's focal length sits in between those other 2 lenses- for me it took the place of both of them without taking up any space in my camera bag!

Good to know!

As of late, they have been excluding the 5D2 from that offer. But you never know, they used to include it in the 20% off so it could always be brought back!

I believe you can change focusing screens on the 6D too!

And while I am ranting:

To the people saying the 6D is for "advanced point-and-shooters"...

Or just people that know how to use a camera and take a photograph.

I bought a 5DII (with it's ancient terrible focusing technology) recently from Canon for 1500(refurb new), popped it on a tripod with a 24mm f/1.4II, switched it over to Manual Focus, dialed in the hyper focal distance, and snapped away some beautiful landscape shots... All in focus! Weird. I also manage to get the auto focus to work too. Bonus!

I'm really tired if the "introduction to" and "upgrade to" full frame comments.

It should be "RETURN TO" full frame!!!

I have an EOS Rebel G fully plastic camera with 3 focus points that is "full frame".

The 6D will just be the most affordable Canon 35mm digital camera.

Why is this considered some type of promise land in photography?

I shoot with all different types of cameras, and the ironic part is I actually use my 7D for the majority of the "professional" work.
