EOS-M / Re: knock off EW-60E hood?
« on: September 19, 2013, 01:10:22 AM »
wonder if anyone will be it.  I have seen $500 amazon gift cards sold for $515.  Why would any one pay an extra $15 in order to buy it on amazon?  Laundering drug money????

If it were me, I would focus less on correct ISO and shutter speed and more on the story and the framing. What do you want your shots to say? It won't make a big difference at the end if your ISO was a multiple of 160 or not. Don't be afraid to break the rules, you may well have to in order to get the shot. A slower shutter speed will let in a lot more light, and, if the scenes don't have much movement, you'll never be able to tell 1/30th from 1/50th. On the other hand, shooting at 1/60th or 1/100th will accentuate motion, which is a cool look for dancing/sports/etc.

Also, you could bring a light along, which will do wonders. Have fun

Agree.  Technical correct could look sterile.  Be creative, if the story is strong, technical flaws will not be noticed (as much).

Software & Accessories / Re: Lightroom 5.2 Now Available

I use Adobe CC [yes, it is the Dark Side, but I'm only blowing $10/month, so far], and Lightroom 5 was a free download.

I asked about about the $10 option on a chat and was told it was not available.  I guess I will need to check again.

Actually, I tried that earlier today, but my version of 5.0 said there were no updates.  I had to go direct to Adobe and download it.
 
My perception says its noticibly faster.

Had the same problem with the update.  I have not tested 5.2 yet

check out gura gear - their bataflae 32L is huge and will easily swallow all you equipment.  Also rugged and very lightweight.
As you said: It's huge. Half of it will hold a 600 f/4 or 800 f/5.6 without camera or a 500 f/4 with camera.

OP mentioned 300 2.8. So a Bataflae 26L would be a better choice. It will hold the 300 2.8 with camera attached in one half and the other equipment in the other half with room to spare...

P.S I do have 26L and believe me it's BIG. You do not want even bigger than necessary...

I tend toward larger bags, so (1) I can keep equipment easily accessible and (2) take that extra items (water, sun screen, sandwich, ...) with me.

Is there any real world data?  Will they increase effective buffer in a 1Dx? or download any faster?

He is saying this website is not very good, but still is posting here.  He posts something that really is not answering the question, or is useful... to set a example??

so in short he complains that on a RUMOR site not every news make it to reality?

ah... i see.  ;)

I see said that blind carpenter as she picked up the hammer and saw.  :o

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon New vs. Refurb
« on: September 15, 2013, 03:52:28 PM »
Never had a problem with a refurb (or new item for that matter).

Consider that after a month or so, your new camera will be in refurb condition  ;D

« on: September 15, 2013, 03:47:58 PM »
If you need reach, go with a crop sensor.

If you need low sensitivity, go with a full frame sensor

If you have EF-S lenses, stick with a crop sensor.

Others?
