i'm not a fan of belt systems at all...on a big and heavy camera, it just feels weird walking around with.
i bought the Capture, it works for mirrorless cameras but on a 5d3 with only a 24-70, it felt so uncomfortable on the belt or even on a backback..i just didn't like the feeling of just feels like someone pulling your belt as you walk.

i then went to buy the b-grip evo..thinking with the large surface area it would be better...i was wrong, it felt even more weird and unnatural to walk around with and a hassle to use..

i also was using the Black Rapids for a while but i felt that it does get in the way whe i'm sitting or squatting down because the strap would fall off my shoulder even with the extra harness...

Ultimately, the one strap that is pretty unknown but works FANTASTIC for's a sling style, it is adjustable in length on the fly and is lockable and is super light and comfortable..I use this strap ALL the time now and it's the best strap i've used by far....It's none other than the Joby Ultrafit strap

for bigger dslrs there's a thicker version

Go check it really is that great a product that is very overlooked.

That connects to the bottom, which I hate. There are no choices on the connection. Plus, the lens is digging into the guys stomach in the demo and it would get more uncomfortable with a bigger lens. It may work better in practice though I do not know. I am kind of sold on the peak design leash as a strap and their capture clip for use on hikes and stuff. I was actually just about to buy the leash but hearing about a more padded version is making me wait and see. What I love about that leash is that I have a choice where to attach the strap.

Hopefully another quality lens by Sigma! Hope its $899 like its little brother the 35mm 1.4.

Thanks for the review frank.

Some people seem very quick to write this lens off but I'll wait until more reviews and hands on. I was considering the 100-400 Canon before I heard about this lens. Honestly, if this lens can outresolve the Canon at the 200-400 length and have decent sharpness at the 500-600 focal lengths I am sold. Of course, the AF speed should be at least on par with the Canon if not better. If that is all in then I will buy one in a heartbeat. I am not a pro but just need a super tele for the rare times I shoot wildlife or sports.

I want this so bad but don't have the money at the moment. when do you guys think the price will remain at around $2700 permanently and not go back up to $3200 like it keeps doing?

If you favor the 24mm focal length and know beforehand that the majority if your shots will be at 24mm I suggest going for the prime as it will be faster and sharper.

If you require a walk around lens for general shooting, from landscapes to portraits and everything in between, the tamron is an excellent all around lens. You wouldn't need IS at 24mm anyways. You say you do portraits and if you don't want to switch lenses, you might be limited with just the 24mm so maybe Tamron is better for that particular purpose.
Which camera will the lens be used on?

EOS Bodies / Re: "Two New FF Bodies in 2014" - if 5DM4, would you jump in?

hope the 5D4 gets 4 k video and native raw video mode , if it gets that , I will get it.

Canon already said they don't believe RAW video should be on lower end cameras (relative to their Cinema range) so no Canon endorsed RAW video for you, especially not 4K.

Why is Sigma so opposed to adding weather sealing? This could be a top lens if it had weather sealing. Same goes for their other recent lenses.

If they make a super telephoto it obviously won't be an ART lens. They have three lines: Art, Contemporary, and Sports. The telephoto will obviously go into Sports and standard zooms go into Contemporary; primes go into Art.

From around two weeks to three days. Good job Tamron.

If its the same price as the Tamron and performs as well if not better I'm down.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 70D features vs 60D
« on: July 22, 2013, 07:14:50 PM »
Did you try googling it? There are comparison videos and articles already although none have taken account the image quality, noise and dynamic range performance of the 70D as the tested models were pre-production.

-70D has a much superior AF system (at least on paper) with 19 all cross type AF ponts.
-The 70d shoots 7fps compared to the 5.3 fps of 60D.
- 70D has a touch screen
- 70D has wifi for photo transferring and remote stills shooting
- 70D has 98% viewfinder compared to the 96% viewfinder of the 60D
- 70D also has built in HDR mode and some creative filter things

Other than that, as you know the 70D has some cool video AF thing that really looks like it works well and has a new sensor. Sensor performance will come later as soon as reviewers get their hands on a production model.

Seems you need speed for shooting events. In that case I recommend the C100. Good image quality and great form factor. You can shoot log and the files are very manageable. I think you'll be happy.
If you were shooting both stills and video, the 5D 3 is the best option on the market hands down but this doesn't apply to you. The BMD 4k is fantastic but more suitable for narrative work where 4k is a better option for the larger screen and doing lots of post production where the extra latitude will come in handy.
So in conclusion go with the C100.

Edit: With the BMD you need accessories like SSDs, grips which add to the cost. The C100 is ready to go.

Very informative group. :) My question here, other than from what I have seen the release of the 70D is in September and not this month, is whether it is all that much better that I would want to upgrade from the 60D? I was reading up at and the only wow factor seems to be the autofocusing technology. If I am understanding correctly, the 70D is finally catching up with camcorders.

Is there anything other than this that should make me consider upgrading? Thanks in advance...



"I was reading up at." Yeah right. You only have one post here. It seems you came justs to plug in your squidoo link, which has been taken down anyway. Don't spam.

Awesome deal. Seems like a good pocket cam for the times you need to snap quickly and/or can't use both hands or a dslr is too cumbersome.
