If you had to start all over and have only one camera and one lens, what would it be?
I'm selling my:
and my 580ex
and using as little of that money to reduce my gear.
My family comes first and life isnt free, but i dont want to give up on photography, which has been my life since i was 17.
I know the overall "profit" ill make wont be a huge amount, but im 25 with a 9 month old and every penny counts right now.
I picked my current gear for landscapes and portraits. So that's what im looking to still be able to do. I probably cant have the best of both worlds, and something that does both, isnt likely to do it as well as what i have. but downgrading for money is looking to be my only option right now.
I have the EF 1200 mm f/5.6 lens an I can confirm that the lens don´t have a build in TC.
Only the FDn 1200 mm f/5.6 lens have a built in 1.4X TC.
Whilst we're debating the pros and cons of what makes "art", I can't help noticing that in the 7hrs or so since I posted the images, the thread has been read almost 1000 times and the images opened almost 900 times each and yet no one has asked what the images are of. I'd have thought abstract images would have caused at least one person to ask, "what is it?". Maybe they're too obvious. Maybe I'm over-analysing the minds of the people who view this site. Maybe I should get out more.
Hey guys, I'm working on some wildlife now, and my 70-200 2.8 is ii and my extenders aren't giving me enough reach.
I found a local photographer wanting to sell his canon 300 2.8 l non-is.
My question is, will using the lens with the extenders even on a monopod case blurry photos?
Sharpness is also important since I'm doing some large prints.
Should I try to negotiate a deal with him, or should I just save up and get the is 1 or 2?
After comparing several key specifications between 6D and 5D3, below is my summary on how the two FF bodies compare (at least on paper):
AF Center Point: -3 vs. –2 EV = 6D is 33% more sensitive in low light
What do others think?
I like macro prhotography and until now I have some nice photos of flowers and insects that move slowly (spiders) using an 60mm canon efs macro lense. I want to go full frame so I would like to hear your suggestions. Is it worth going for the 100mm IS which is the double price from the non IS? I am also considering the 180mm but although is an L lense is not IS. Do I need IS in order to take a moving subject (i.e. a bee, a flower under wind) without a tripod with these magnifications. If so why the 180 lense is not IS and is the most expensive? Also what about image quality?
Please I would love to hear the expert advise.
