RAW + JPEG...always. Some of my clients want the jpeg's immediately after the shoot.

I take a great deal of pictures at my Kids' sporting and school events. Many parents ask me to try and take some shots of their children. I had an idea of posting these event photos on a website much like the companies do in various running races (5k, 10k, marathon, etc.) and earn some money for my gear. What's the best site to accomplish this task? Or would be better to pay someone to develop a website for me?
135mm all the way. I use a 5dmk3 with a 70-200mm2.8 in low light levels all the time. With action you want all the speed you can get. Btw- the 135mmf2 has nothing to fear from any 70-200mm for portrait work. Honestly, sometimes the advise given out is very odd.
$105.50 is really expensive
do i really really need?
what's wrong with a super cheap one?
- You should buy the expensive one to protect your expensive lens.
- You should also buy a less expensive clear filter to protect your expensive clear filter.
- You should also buy the cheap clear filter to protect your other clear filters.
- Don't forget to remove ALL of the clear filters before taking a picture, because they WILL degrade the quality of your images.
Or, you can just use a lens hood to protect your lens properly, and it will actually improve your images, instead of making them softer like a filter does.
The noobs always buy the protective filters because the salesman in the camera store, who makes more profit from a filter than he does from a camera or lens, convinces them they need one... and then laughs his a$$ off when they leave the store.
Lots of talk about NIKON’s better performing sensors. Some-one please correct me if I am wrong but, doesn’t SONY make NIKON’s FF sensors and only have FF since they could source from SONY. NIKON are assemblers of others components. Sure, CANON went to sleep, helped by their massive market share and profitability. CANON is milking the old technology, makes for more profit and hence more R&D dollars. Manufacturers can’t always have leading and bleeding edge technology; however, I won’t be surprised if CANON starts to get serious in the near future. I think that SONY is the ELEPHANT in the room and could further eat into both NIKON and CANON’s market share. Competition is always great for we camera consumers.
thanks, how about 17 place in the sensor rankings?Sleeping is Canon, they have nothing to introduce in resolution, DR etc today
Nothing I have seen
It's hard to see anything when you're wearing blinDRs.
The 1D X has an excellent new AF system and a faster frame rate than any FF dSLR, ever. But Canon is sleeping because Mikael is afflicted with DxOMark synDRome. Whatever.
Im talking about DR, resolution, sensor tech not AF
You and Jrista have a funny way to answer here at CR , if we are discussing cars I will not answer you about motor cycles
Is it a big trauma for you that Canon are at 17 place in the sensor rankings?
and maybe have one of the best AF?
Mikael, your still on about DR? Lol. That's Cute.
or do you still think 85/1,2 is the best 85mm, etc etc the list can be long!
a little more nuanced view might be nice
Thank you for all the feedback. I'm ok with a little noise; I got the photo attached tonight and it has been put through LR4 for lens profile and 30 NR. That one isn't too bad but the wiggle room for either less noise or more shutter/aperture would help.
After 4 years using Canon gear i am thinking of selling all my stuff and switch over to Nikon to get better sensor performance. The lenses of Nikon are not as good as Canon's but with the Nikon sensor the (DSLR+Lens combi) scores are much better. "It's the combi that makes the picture"
What do you all think?
Keep waiting till Canon gets up (again) with Nikon?
I think this can take a long time... Maby never... Or are there any rumors canon wil get back on top soon?
Nil. I joined this forum with an open mind to learn and share ideas. There's no need take anything personal and I do respect other people's opinion although it may contradict with mine. After all, life is so short.
