Nothing is IMPOSSIBLE. Says Canon. They can already see it. Even if we cannot see it.  ;D

You can see it tomorrow.  8)

I see 37+ hours on the countdown timer, which makes it the day after tomorrow (Tuesday).  Are we seeing different times in different locations around the world?

I guess so.  Here in Australia it says 19:45 to go.  I'm guessing its just a dumb script that takes the local computer time difference.

I guess you could change the time on your computer and all will be revealed...

Probably a new designer camera bag.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Why haven't you left canon?
« on: October 02, 2014, 02:30:39 PM »
For me I don't see a need to leave.  I've got a pretty good kit for my skill level.  I can produce photos that I like so I don't need the hassle of swapping all of my equipment to another vendor, relearning the equipment, etc.   

"Your mileage may vary" of course, but I'm content with Canon.

But the entertainment value of CR can't be beat.
 CR is the Jerry Springer of the photography forum world.

I replied "sure, still do," but only because there are occasions where having a surreal image is what the photographer intended.   Sometimes I like that crazy look - most of the time not.   I wish I could select "sure, but sometimes" as a poll option.   

I've dabbled with HDR a bit and ended up with a cartoonish looking picture of my house.  I ended up laughing at it because it looked ridiculous.  I haven't tried it since.  :)

Not sure I would have benefited from it, but I would have looked a lot cooler than with my rebel/18-55 IS.  :)

Isn't it all about looking like a pro ????   :D :D :D :D

None yet, but eyeing the 400 f5.6L

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 7DII - Did you preorder?
« on: September 18, 2014, 03:03:10 PM »
I'm interested, but waiting on some real world feedback.  If things look good, then I'll be in the second wave of people to make a purchase.  Surapon gave some valuable advice which I will follow.

BTW, from the pictures that I can see, the noise level looks great at iso 3200.   I have not seen any full size images though.  Has canon posted any sample RAW pictures that are downloadable?

I haven't seen any RAW files yet, but you can get 1920 size JPEGs from here...

We should see RAW files when they get their product pages online which, hopefully, should be soon.

To me they look pretty good up to ISO 6400.  It would have been nice to have the ISO 3200 in focus.

The majority of users have no idea how the internet works

Rope, pulleys, and counterweights right?
No, no - it's hamsters in cages and tin cans connected with string these days.  We've come a long way ;)

I guess my internet is slow because I'm still using smoke signals.....hamsters, who knew...

Here's a link to some gallery pics from canon's Japan website.   They are pretty small on my screen, but look promising.  Of course, no real replacement for a downloaded, full sized image.

Lenses / Re: What New Lens are You Most Excited About?
« on: September 12, 2014, 03:06:42 PM »
The Tamron and Sigma sound interesting to me.  I doubt I'd get either one, but I'd like to see the reviews when they are available.   I continue to be impressed with Tamron's ability to integrate IS into their F2.8 lenses.  At the focal length given, IS should not be needed, but still there are times when IS could be helpful.

I'm also considering a 400mm to add to my kit.  For budget reasons, I was investigating the 400 F5.6L.  For those same reasons I'd like to check out the sigma as well.

Plus, how can you say "no" to this?

Epic! Is that Mt. Hood?

It is!  I went up and took some photos of Mt Hood from Portland.  A few hours later I went and climbed Mt Hood and took some photos looking back at Portland!
I've gone skiing at mount hood.  Beautiful area!

It's funny that you forgot Canada considering the site is owned by a Canadian  :P

I am from Houston, TX and I see what you are saying WSmith. It is very difficult to find scenic landscapes. However, the cityscapes are quite nice, I haven't exploited it yet tho'.

It seems a few are from various places in Texas. We can definitely have a Texas meetup of sorts.

Houston's like my second home. I'm there all the time for work. These locales should look familiar for any Houstonian. Yah, the area is quite possibly the most boring place on earth for landscapes, but you can find some cool urban spots from time to time:


Interstate 45, beeyotch ;D


That's the Toyota Center on the left.


At least the insane Houston humidity is good for crazy tropical cloud formations :o


Some old barns in beautiful Hempstead, TX. I got about 50 mosquito bites while shooting these :(


The most interesting thing in all of Danbury, TX is this bridge :o
+1 on Danbury.   Love the Camaro!
