EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D III, or 6D+7D combo - your thoughts?

I actually like carrying around 2 bodies with different crop factors. Gives me more options mixing my prime lenses.

Pro photographers in the past must have made way more if a profit with their craft. I doubt they bought every new camera model and switch systems on an annual basis. They are just cameras!

Portrait / Re: First Portrait Shoot!

I would also suggest fill flash (on very low power to blend with ambient), or a reflector. Your model has pretty strong facial features and deep set eyes- a lot of the images have dark shadows cast around her eyes. Not the most flattering for a female subject. You can also slightly correct this in post.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Future of APS-C
« on: October 09, 2012, 12:37:34 PM »
My Aunt has been shooting with her Digital Rebel for years. She used to use film cameras. I don't think she has ever changed the lens or even knows what a sensor is, let alone the "crop factor"! She likes to be able to look through an optical view finder, zoom in/ out to compose, and snap a shot of her family. She is happy with that camera (Probably a Rebel XTi type of deal). She prints standard size photos & shares them on the web. She won't replace it till it dies.

This is your average consumer. They don't read DxO tests, micro adjust their lenses or photograph the back of their lens caps... They don't know what APS-C means. They are happy with their camera.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: 6D Need To Change Something..
« on: October 05, 2012, 10:34:36 AM »
And wouldn't NO pop-up flash be an advantage for the 6D? From what I gather on this forum, everyone shoots at f/1.2 and requires the ultimate weather sealing for all their wild photoshoots! No popup adds better sealing.

Except for the 40mm 2.8. That lens is rad!

I just looked at the post. That isn't the "fill" photo, that is his example of not having flash and "fixing it in post". He also shows a pic of actual fill flash...

Um, why is this a thread worth discussing? Slow day? Ugh, you made me go to that horrible site.

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.
« on: September 30, 2012, 01:13:24 AM »
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.

Lenses / Re: Vintage Lenses: Any Advise?
« on: September 24, 2012, 11:10:13 AM »
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.
