Happy birthday, Helen! I hope it's your best one yet!

It's been 2 weeks since certain claims were made about Canon screwing the customers ... yet to see any proof.

It kinda looks ugly ... maybe its just the angle, but it sure looks ugly and unappealing to me.

Anybody struggling with the Rockwell link should watch a Zefrank video or two on YouTube. True Facts About The Armadillo

how did we get here again?

I was thinking the same thing ... maybe people are only reading the words "photography snob" from the title, and they immediately think of Ken ;D


We're all photography snobs, jaded on some level, are we not?

If we are honest with ourselves, yes we are all snobs ... it does not have to be only photography, it could be anything ... everyone is prejudiced about something or another ... so yes, we are snobs at some level.

EOS-M / Re: Canon EOS M3 in Q3 of 2014?
« on: April 14, 2014, 10:39:42 AM »
If the EOS-M 3 has similar capabilities like the 70D and an optional or built-in view finder, then I'm all in ... I'd probably pick up the 11-22 lens along with the camera.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Sony Alpha a6000

I thought I had better add (to avoid confusion) that the poor high iso performance seems limited to the jpeg files
Thanks for posting the images ... I agree about the jpeg files, even the a7/a7R suffers the same issue with jpeg files ... I think it is the in-camera jpeg processing that is screwing up the images in my a7, somehow Sony is not able to work out a good in-camera-processing system for those jpeg files ... but the raw files are great ... so, I suppose a6000 also suffers from the same issue.

yeah it's a pain since my dad has no interest in raw but i've told him to shoot raw and jpg then i can process any shots he likes for him from the raws.

LOL! I had such a hard time from my wife for shooting RAWs (she has no control over posting the pictures, for I have to 'process' them first) until I bought the 5DIII...
I gave up telling my wife and kids to shoot RAW ... coz they kept coming to me with tons of images to be processed, in the begenning I didn't mind but after a while it was getting too much for me to handle ... so I said, screw it, just shoot JPEG

this will be softer than a marshmallow....

Even if true, I somehow doubt it'll be significant on a facebook size image.  I know people who are excited about this lens and the flexibility it offers.  They use DSLRs because of their ability to capture motion/sports better than any other option, but don't have any higher quality target output beyond facebook.
+1 ... also not everyone is concerned with "sharp", lots of hobbyists would like an all-in-one zoom that can take care of their vacation photos without missing a shot ... a soft photo is far better than a missed photo.

EOS Bodies / Re: DP Review's 10 most popular camera list
« on: April 11, 2014, 04:20:58 PM »
Oh no, my Canon cameras are not in the top viewed list in DP reviews  :'(  ;D ... personally I find DP review website layout to be a bit messy, so I very rarely go to their website.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 7D Replacement Mentioned Again [CR1]

In less than 5 months, it'll be 5 years since the 7D was announced and nothing so far indicates that a 7D II will ever be released ... I've lost my interest in it and if it does get released, I most likely will not buy one.

While shooting airborne shots is always an awesome experience, it's also a fantastic opportunity to portrait America's unsung heroes:









EPIC images ... really like them ... I would have never guessed it was made with the Sigma 12-24mm lens  ...this goes to show that sharpness is not everything ... good/compelling images like these can be made with the right vision by the photographer, even if the Sigma 12-24mm lens is "considered not so sharp".
