Lenses / Re: Refurbished Lenses from Canon
« on: July 25, 2012, 11:52:55 AM »
I bought a 5DII refurb. Came looking/ smelling brand new and never used, still with all the stickers on it. I recently picked up a S95 refurb, while it looked clean, it definitely had been handled/ used/ returned.

Happy overall. Sometimes you'll get a basically brand new product, while other times you may get a return that has then been refurbished.

Would you mind sharing the info on how you got this shot? Did you any strobes etc?

Thank you...nothing special just a 60D and a 430EXII flash on a flexible tripod and some CS to get the blues.. it was a pretty dark and stormy day... Of course it's far from perfect but I try to learn from every shot so next time I'll position the light higher :)  The young lady - Alicia - is my fiance, (thank you again) just starting in modeling so we're trying to put together a book for her..

Congrats on the fiance! You don't need an expensive camera. Ha!

Oh this lens is fun

This thread shows exactly how little there is to talk about on CR now that: the Mirrorless has been announced, the 5DIII shooting-the-back-of-the-cap-light-leak-disaster has subsided, the 1Dx is shipping, the new Rebel is out...

My opinion is that this is a "good start" for their new system. This is for Best Buy and should beat up on the Nikon-1. I'll wait for the 3rd gen of the EOS-M. Not in a rush.

What no pink?! +1 for Nikon

Lighting / Re: When do you use spot metering?
« on: July 22, 2012, 02:04:56 PM »
I'd like to expand on the question:

How does one use spot metering in AI Servo mode when your focus point isn't center or linked to the meter.

I think my EOS-3 can meter at the focus point, but Canon took this feature away from most digital cameras for some reason...

EOS Bodies / Re: New, cheaper, Canon FF DSLR... 70D?

I agree with others about sensor size having nothing to do with what makes a "pro" camera.

I have an EOS Rebel G film camera (all plastic, even the mount), and it is "full frame"! I can mount a 70-200L on that toy if I want to :)

Lenses / Re: sigma 30mm f1.4... anyone used?
« on: July 21, 2012, 10:28:52 AM »
Since you already have the 50mm f/1.8, why not look at the 35mm f/2?

I'd choose that over the Sigma 30mm.. It's cheaper, Canon, no focus issues, compatible with FF and has great IQ. Especially on a crop where the corners won't even be seen!

The 50 1.4 isn't much better than the 1.8, actually, I got rid of the 1.4 and replaced it with the 50mm 1.8 mkI.

Lenses / Re: 40mm Pancake Malfunctioning?
« on: July 21, 2012, 10:13:39 AM »
Happene to my 40mm once too. Just wouldn't focus. I took it off and remounted, and haven't had the problem since.

I'll buy the 5D3 when it's price is around 2K, and my 5D2 is dead.

IE: After the 5D4 is out, and people are complaining about it's price, and how it isn't worth the upgrade...

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS-M Actual Sizes - Sensor size same as G1X

Wait. So it's not full frame??? I. Am. Shocked.

Lenses / Re: Which to keep? EF 70-300 IS USM or 70-200 4L IS USM
« on: July 20, 2012, 10:19:26 AM »
Why not sell both and get the 70-300L?
