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

Canon General / Re: How many of us are making money out of photography ?

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.

429
This is absurd.

Also why is the D600 "better"? Neither camera is even out yet! I'm sure they are both fantastic cameras capable of capturing light on a little digital sensor. People need to find a better hobby besides comparing spec sheets.

Cameras come and go.

My 24mm f/1.4II, 135mm f/2, 70-200.... now those are some sexy things.

I'll run my bodies into the ground while I spend my loot on glass.

It's just another price point being offered by Canon. The 5DII will be soon discontinued leaving this as their 2k model.

I seriously dont understand all the angry/ complaining posts- every camera model that is released isn't intended to be sold to every Canon user. If it is not for you, move on.

432
I like the new design of the lenses too. Very clean and simple looking.

I know "pro" photographers that use Rebels. The photographer is the "Pro" not the camera.

With "Pro/Semi Pro" I ment camera body style. I know that a Pro photographer can take pictures with any camera. ;)

I know, I was just busting balls.
