i think docu/wedding videographers will be all over this, and it also would be great for casual family stuff

i bought a rebel g (ef mount)for about 20 bucks on ebay, Ive seen more of em for far cheaper(a buy it now for 5 recently, not sure if its even cost efficient for the seller at that price!). I havent finished the roll of film yet so I cant tell how good it is, and I really have no experience with film, but it seems capable, small & accepts my lenses with no problem so far.

How do you guys go about selling stuff on craigslist? like for anything over 100$ I kinda worry that if it were a small expensive item like a lens, that it'd be just so easy for them toget up and walk away or claim it was theirs after you handed it to them for testing out on their camera etc.

Also looking for one soonish. Should I be worried about buying a used flash? Is there a way to check its lifespan like the shuttercount on a camera?

the wheel on my 7d felt solid, just like the top dial. there wasnt a pop or click sound either to the set button

I think its a sense of machoness, people of all shapes and sizes use smaller gadgets and love them(see the iphone). That said I did pick up a rebel XT and I could see myself getting claw hands with prolonged use(compared to using a 5d3/7d or even t3i), but I chalk that up to older ergonomics rather than small gadgetry.

You should go hang around bestbuy's photography section leejay, with some of these handy charts.

I cant wait to see how this affects the 1dc. do canon reduce the price, because its also a 1dx. but if they leave the price high, I cant imagine anyone would want it considering the 4k bmc.

theres no auto iso, which i think is the biggest weakness to it, if it matters

with the 5d3 for me its not really worth the risk until it is more thoroughly tested or they come out with some real image quality improving fixes(for video).
if I had a lower end rebel I wouldnt hesitate

beautiful work, really nice variation of shots. I wonder, do you plan the general shots or shoot whatever happens to tickle your fancy? coming from a vfx background, cant really imagine just winging it but Id guess you'd have to in a wedding

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 6D ISO tests by the-digital-picture.com
« on: December 05, 2012, 04:38:27 PM »
Ok but all things considered, 6d is a slapdash quickie response from canon to nikon's latest lower cost FF entry.  At best, a staving move, not a full fledged defense on canon's part.

As more reviews come in, expect an equally mad dash race among retailers to 6D's final price resting point -I will spare repeating the number here :). In months, not a year.

At that price point it will be a good value and competent performer. But by no means is it a 5D3 competition.

How do you get this at all? I dont think canon does anything slapdash, it took them a good while to release the eos m. The cameras are similar, its not like the 6d is falling apart due to being rushed out the factory(at least no bad reports just yet).  If you think its slap dash due to the DR, I think that nikon has just won this round fair and square. Or due to things like less af points, less mp, only 1 sd slot etc, Id say those are conscious decisions, not that they ran out of time designing it..

Lenses / Re: Normal Lens or High-End Compact?
« on: December 05, 2012, 01:31:19 PM »
funny you ask this as I have been walking around a lot with my 70-200 and not bothering to take any other lens with me and using my iphone as my wide angle camera.  Seems to work for me, IQ is on par with just about any other mid range PS out there plus it has the advantage of being very light and something Id take with me anyway.  It also is the best PS on the market for taking the photograph, doing some quick pp through snapseed and off to my facebook or flickr accounts.  But if that doesn't work for you I'd invest in the 17-55 f2.8 IS over any of the wide to normal primes especially on APS C.  Its way more flexible and you don't lose much if anything in the IQ department.  My 17-55 was glued to my 7d.

If you're taking photos with facebook or flickr as the only location of the end-product, you don't need a DSLR.

what a terrible post, majority of the people who have dslrs dont need them but its a hobby. you didnt need to post this but yet you did.
